Bonsack and Kuehner Galleries: Friday, 13 April 2012

Cubed Squared, 1969, COR-Ten steel, Laumeier Sculpture Park
The Kuehner Gallery of John Burroughs School will feature sculptures by Jerald Jacquard from April 13 through May 8.

In his career as a sculptor, Jacquard has elevated model-making from a mere step in the process (from artistic vision to final completion of a full-scale work) to an end unto itself, where the model is the completed vision. His works reflect an ongoing conversation on balance and proportion, color and shape, size and scale.

As Jacquard himself puts it, “Models give the artist a creative insight and freedom from the everyday world ... They allow me to compare ideas, and they show me which ideas not to make larger. Having the advantage of previewing unknown ideas, I feel models have an exponential stimulating affect on the creative mind.”

The John Burroughs School fine arts faculty will exhibit its works in a mixed media show in the Bonsack Gallery from April 13 through May 8. The show is representative of the diverse interests and strengths of the department’s artists/teachers.

Included in the show will be works by department chair Anne Martin (ceramics and sculpture), Donya Allison (drawing, painting and printmaking), Andrew Denney (ceramics), Howard Jones (drawing, painting, photography and printmaking) and Andrew Newman (photography).

All are invited to a public reception hosted by the artists from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, Friday, April 13. Regular gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., weekdays. The exhibits are free to the public. For more information, contact Anne Martin by phone (314/993-4040, ext. 258) or by e-mail.
