Isolation Room/Gallery Kit: Firday, 29 June 2012


Marcel Dzama: Death Disco Dance

June 29- August 2, 2012
Opening Reception: Friday, June 29, 2012 6pm-8pm

At Isolation Room we see the off cuts from the film Chess Match who’s narrative arcs the following direction: An assassinated chess player slumps dead over the board, while a costumed dancer playing ‘white’ La Reina, looking more like a Philip Guston Klansman than a chess piece, stands astride the game-board-cum-dance-stage as a colossus, crushing one hapless black piece after another. Eventually an unnoticed feral black pawn steadily advances by sneakily ‘chivying’ and daintily pirouetting its way to the end of the board until it reincarnates as a queen to destroy La Reina, in a surprise reversal of power. This cutting room floor film is slightly different from the official ballet. However, it has the same slinky polka-dot leotard wearing ballet dancers bouncing around, almost like a “girls on trampolines” skit. What’s not to like? -DM

Be sure to check out Marcel Dzama's exhibition at the World Chess Hall of Fame before August 12!

Hours: By appointment only.

An Art Exhibition in Partnership with Stray Rescue of St. Louis

Opening reception: Friday, Aug 3 6 – 8 p.m
August 3 - September 16

The opening, which is free-of-charge and open to the public, includes food, beverages and, of course, truly inspiring and professional works of art that pertain to the Stray Rescue mission. (Please leave your pets at home.)

The theme of this year’s highly anticipated fundraising event will focus on the survivors of Stray Rescue ­ innocent dogs and cats that have suffered shocking abuse, neglect and abandonment. Due to the efforts of the dedicated staff of Stray Rescue, these innocent victims of unspeakable cruelties are protected, sheltered and loved for the remainder of their lives.

“The theme throughout the exhibition will be one of hope, showing that the majority of these companion animals survive the very harsh city streets to have the most loving, attentive, gentle, and playful personalities,” said Randy Grim, Founder of Stray Rescue.

The focus of the show also has an essential educational component, giving Stray Rescue a platform on which to present the public with facts about the animal abuse and neglect the organization combats on an almost daily basis.

Regional and national artists will paint, photograph, and sculpt a Stray Rescue dog that has been abandoned, abused or neglected, and shelter dogs will also create works of art using their paws, tails and noses.

All art displayed in the exhibition will be available through an online auction by visiting Bidding will begin Friday, Aug. 3, and all proceeds directly benefit Stray Rescue of St. Louis.

Sarrita Hunn: Fuzzy Logic
July 20 - August 18
Opening Reception Friday, July 20 6-10pm

Sarrita Hunn is an interdisciplinary artist based in St. Louis, MO and Berlin, Germany who explores how information is mediated through cognitive and technological process. Titled Fuzzy Logic, after a form of logic that deals with reasoning that is approximate, rather than fixed or exact, the exhibition will feature a new installation of paintings that explore the medium and technological developments in image production.

In addition, Sarrita has invited three artists (Jesper Carlsen, Jake Peterson and Gareth Spor) to create augmented reality (AR) projects in relation to her concurrent billboard, Arches. While virtual reality creates a virtual space separate from reality, augmented reality takes a view of the physical world (most commonly seen through the camera of a smartphone) and adds interactive elements. These projects will be placed at sites near the gallery along Gravois using geolocation-based AR and seen via the mobile phone app Layar. She will also present a publication produced in collaboration with Nightmare City (Carol Anne McChrystal and Keturah Cummings) with essays by the artist and James McAnally.

More than 20 prints are on view from June 30 - August 11, 2012 with an opening reception for the artist on Saturday, June 30, from 7-10PM. “Miami Centerfold” is Keith Mosier’s first solo exhibition.

Photo Exhibit Opening: Losing Reality - Photographs by Ellen Jantzen

Opening Reception: Friday, July 13, from 6-11PM during the Let Them Eat Art Festival in Maplewood
Exhibit is free and open to the public. Gallery is also open by appointment.

Ellen Jantzen's "Losing Reality Series," explores the alternate states of reality and the nature of personal loss. The series was inspired by events in her life - she and her husband moved from California to St. Louis to care for her mother-in-law who was succumbing to the ravages of Alzheimer's. "I became acutely aware of not only the aging process, but also the vagaries of memory and the sense of loss that permeated our lives here." Her series depicts how a person adapts to losses and how the body, mind and spirit are absorbed and transformed by that loss.

The opening will concur with the Let Them Eat Art Festival, Maplewood's tribute to Bastille Day. The event will feature live music and art demonstrations, performance artists, dog costume contest and more.

Duane Reed Gallery: Friday, 29 June 2012

Opening Friday, June 29th
Reception from 5:00 - 8:00 PM

Duane Reed Gallery presents the latest work of acclaimed artist Ross Richmond.   Richmond’s work is blown and hot sculpted, meaning that nothing is cast or mold blown, all pieces are made by hand while hot on the pipe in the glass shop. He first establishes the main shape of the piece, then allow the glass to cool working it in a colder state so that a more “solid core” is created to work from. If the piece is too hot the shape will distort as the details are brought out. Richmond uses a small oxygen-propane torch for all the detail work, which allows him a greater variety of flame shapes and sizes to work with. Heads are typically blown, whereas all hands are solid. With a blown shape he is able to inflate areas or “suck” areas in as needed. Hands are made solid so the delicate fingers do not collapse or distort. All colors are applied in layers of glass powders and the finished piece is coated with an acid to remove the shine for a matte finish.

“My pieces are typically narrative, working mainly with figurative elements and symbolic objects. Much of my current work is influenced by mans’ relationship with nature, as well as his impact upon nature. I find faces and hands to be very beautiful and expressionistic, a source of silent communication, and I use gestures and titles to help convey an overall story. My pieces are usually about communication with self, or between others.”

Also Opening June 29th
Intersecting Narratives
curated by Brian Smith


Jason Bly • Brigham Dimick • David DolakMyles Keough • Sarah Paulsen • Travis Russell

Site Specific Installation: Boone's Crossing
mixed media - size varies
by Travis Russell

Duane Reed Gallery has invited painter Brian Smith to curate exhibition Intersecting Narratives,  showcasing emerging St. Louis artists.

Intersecting Narratives  is an exhibit of stories that have been shared and have yet to be told. These works by a diverse group of emerging Saint Louis artists forecasts a mixture of hope and unease that is reflective of contemporary culture. Each artist’s personal experiences and ideas resonate with a collective sense of memory.

Sarah Paulsen’s , Brigham Dimick, and David Dolak’s paintings include layered forms and themes of family. Energy appears to tingle and radiate from Myles Keough’s “landscapes.“ Highly saturated colors surround iconic industrial machinery in Jason Bly’s work.  And Travis Russell’s inventive art is a mix of painting, printmaking, sculpture and installation.

Intersecting Narratives brings together the artistic styles of the past, the art of the streets and the flurry of energy found in popular media - online, in magazines and TV. This mashed up set of layers is not just a pastiche of forms for their own sake. Each artist moves beyond irony and acknowledges a collision of feelings and multiple approaches to the use of traditional forms. Their thoughtful narratives are carefully rendered, considered and intersect both individually and collectively to form this exciting exhibition.

These exhibitions run through Saturday, August 4, 2012

The Saint Louis University Museum of Art
Friday, June 22 Opening reception: 6 - 8 p.m.

Steen’s paintings are a powerful expression of sensitivity and technique. Her harmonious and appealing work is alive with lush colors, as well as large washes of transcendent hues and tones. She often integrates handmade paper, strings, found objects, or scraps of memorabilia that convey a sensitivity, complexity and richness to her work.

For Steen, her collages are the equivalent of keeping a visual art diary and paint an emotional narrative. She acknowledges that pain and struggle are an integral part of the human existence. Her ultimate goal is to transcend pain and darkness and create paintings that instead, convey hope and beauty through the interplay between color, line, and texture.

Sara Swaty Roger - Gender Bender
A Three Day Event During Pride Weekend at Aisle 1 Gallery

Opening Reception Thursday, June 21, 2012, 7 – 10 pm
Music, bites and other surprises will make this evening a Pride Weekend to remember. This is a full glitz event, costumes are encouraged, and for a small donation, make-up artist, HErARTbyASHLi*, will be ready to glam your look on the spot.

In Sara Swaty's ongoing social photographic documentary, she explores the different perceptions of gender and how it relates to sexuality. Through photographing numerous subjects who perceive gender in a different way, Sara has discovered countless gender identities and the impact society has on the perceptions of gender and sex. This project raises questions that are rarely addressed, and gives context to each individual’s experience, showing how vast the concept of gender is.

Avery Danziger: 11:00

Both exhibitions continue through August 5

AVERY DANZIGER "Transformations"
Harlem Valley / Wingdale Project
toxic stillness & quiet

Featured will be a new photography series taken from the "Harlem Valley /Wingdale Project."  Avery Danziger has taken as his subject the beauty and stillness found in neglected man made environments as they work their way inevitably back to chaos.  This project involves a large complex of buildings in New York designed and built in the 20's for use as a psychiatric hospital.  It is now abandoned, toxic, and scheduled to be demolished in the near future.  These photographs are amazing for the capture of the deterioration as a process and are aesthetically astonishing.  Danziger is a nationally and internationally known photographer associated with a number of diverse projects, resulting in truly magnificent works exhibited and collected by several museums and numerous private and corporate clients.


Glasgow's most recent paintings depict the majesty and simple beauty of our western topography, specifically the high plains and mesas of Colorado country.  She captures the essence of the scenes in minimal images proclaiming the stillness and glory of those great lands.  The vistas, with wonderful horizons, clouds, brush, and lakes are masterfully depicted in these mature works.  Ellen Glasgow has been a nationally recognized landscape artist for almost 50 years and her work is included in many private and public collections.  The exhibition will feature both her oils and monotypes.

Turner Center for the Arts: Friday, 13 July 2012

Join us on Friday July 13th from 6-11 pm, in conjunction with the Let Them Eat Art festivities in Maplewood, for our annual Summer Exhibition. Each year, dozens of TCA artists have displayed and sold their best recent work in our Summer Exhibition. With self-taught work ranging from abstract to finely-detailed and figural, employing all manner of artistic media, this is an annual show not to be missed.

Artwork created by TCA artists is raw and unbridled--untainted by the layers and layers of self-consciousness that most of us erect between our ability to express ourselves and our deepest emotions and purest creativity. Some of our artists' greatest challenges in daily life actually become their greatest assets in the art studio. Witness the honesty of this artwork for yourself. Take some home with you to love forever.

This Friday, join us for live music, chocolate raspberries, and the closing reception of the photo exhibit, HumaNature. Enjoy the folk/Americana sounds of a St. Louis favorite- singer/songwriter, Sharon Hall, while contemplating the urban landscapes of the three HumaNature photographers, James Holzer, Michael Rudolf and Sarah Carmody. There will also be a cameo appearance from a young Suzuki violinist.

The exhibit offers a kaleidoscope of perspectives into humankind's footprint on the landscape and considers the human condition, its constructs and its shelf--life. Experiencing each piece amounts to turning a virtual dial that takes us to places that are at once familiar and unexpected.

Holzer offers his large-scale series, "Holy Spaces," which acutely and subtly blurs the line between real and imaginary, milieu and myth, and the hand of man and reach of a higher power.

In Rudolf’s renderings, we encounter icons of urban culture in astonishing color and depth and discover their surreal mystery and anthropomorphic nature.

Carmody’s "Goats and Industrial Waste" series transports us to a post-apocalyptic playground where goats have adopted and adapted to the ruins of civilization. Moving, playful and fascinating, HumaNature brings our world into focus with fresh, arresting clarity.
