Craft Alliance in the Delmar Loop: Friday, 5 April 2013

Korean artists use glass and metal to explore cultural displacement
April 5, 2013 – June 15, 2013 / Opening Reception: Friday, April 5, 6 – 8pm

Craft Alliance (CA) is pleased to announce the opening reception of Trace, from 6 – 8 pm on Friday, April 5 at CA’s Delmar Loop Gallery. Trace presents seven emerging and mid-career Korean artists who have a long have history in craft and have studied in USA. The curator, Jiyong Lee, has a deep interest in observing artists who work with ideas of personal heritage, culture and present-day influences. This exhibition focuses on the craft materials of glass and metals, and the creation of objects that trace the inner voice of the artists' personal memory, life, their interests, and concepts. Exhibiting artists include Hoyeon Chung, Keunae Song, Hyunsung Cho, Jun Suk Min, Joon Yong Kim, Jin Won Han, and Hyejeong Ko.

The artists in this exhibition have been deeply affected by their experiences of culture shock and the challenge of grappling with language barriers. Hoyeon Chung, Hyunsung Cho, and Jin Won Han use their work to explore their memories, to capture every day events, and to reflect the anxiety of cultural displacement. Keunae Song and Joon Yong Kim create a sense of unfamiliarity by treating the surface of glass in new and unusual ways, complicating the viewers’ perception of the material. The works of Jun Suk Min and Hyejeong Ko encourage viewers to step away from the troubles of the everyday world and into a more playful natural world

The Philip Slein Gallery: Friday, 22 March 2013

Cheonae Kim, Mom, flashe on panel, 2012, 12" x 18"


Reception: Friday, March 22nd, 2013, 6-8 pm
runs through April 27th

Cheonae Kim's exhibit of recent paintings at the Philip Slein Gallery, entitled Portrait, continues her personal exploration of geometric abstraction, with a twist. Some abstract painters combine an expressionistic mentality with a minimalist aesthetic. Like the most expressionistic of the Abstract Expressionist painters, Cheonae uses the simplest form, color and structure to portray her experience of people, places, and things.

With a rigorous visual language, Cheonae portrays her experience of people such as her friends and family, places such as Spain, things such as light and sound. And for Cheonae, it is moments rather than events she is interested in. She prefers to focus our attention on a moment, an impression. Her small scale creates an intimacy that draws the viewer into the work. The paintings are perfectly crafted wooden squares or rectangles, usually one inch deep, painted top and sides with brightly colored stripes or rectangles. The overall impression of the show is one of sunshine daydream, and yet the largest piece, the only large-scale piece in the show, is a bright red and blue cloud of thinly-striped dissonance entitled Murmur, which is a sound Cheonae likens to the distant hum of media and technology.


Shaun O'Dell, Shifting Strips, 2012, gouache and ink on paper mounted on canvas mounted on panel, 24" x 20"

Introductions, at the Philip Slein Gallery, features small-scale work by five artists showing in St. Louis for the first time: Todd Chilton, Lori Ellison, Shaun O'Dell, James Sterling Pitt, and Altoon Sultan. Ken Johnson writes of Todd Chilton's paintings: "Todd Chilton's argyle pattern made of cake-frosting-thick horizontal lines resembles something by the mystic polymath Alfred Jensen." Sarah Schmerler writes of Lori Ellison: "Lori Ellison makes labor-intensive paintings and drawings that deliver far more optical impact and psychological resonance than you'd expect from small-scale work." Peter Plagens describes Shaun Odell's paintings as "wavering along that line between genuinely obsessive variations on a theme and the mere convenience of near uniformity. What tilts the verdict in Mr. O'Dell's favor are subtle intricacies in color and carefully integrated collage elements..." Gwen Allen writes that the motifs employed in James Sterling Pitt's sculptures "call to mind any number of scientific diagrams that map geological or biological structures." And Rob Colvin writes of Altoon Sultan's paintings and textiles: "Both bodies of work display a rich interaction with the history of abstract painting--sometimes it's by quotation and homage, other times by extending formal projects from various historical periods."

Atrium Gallery Announces Two Concurrent Exhibitions

You are Cordially Invited for an Opening Reception, Friday March 15, 6-8 p.m.
Parking Available on Building Lot (east side)

Buckminster Fuller "Tribute"
March 15 - May 11

Atrium Gallery is very pleased to present an extensive exhibition of works by Buckminster Fuller, a renowned 20th Century figure. Fuller was known for his achievements in many related fields, including engineering, art, design, architecture, philosophy, literature, and education.  He operated as a practical philosopher, illustrating his theories through all of these disciplines, and was really known as a "visionary."  He was interested in solving problems of our civilization and always acted globally in seeking solutions.  He was certainly among the most brilliant persons of our time, and aside from his art, architecture, and design contributions, his strongest legacy may be the influence he has had on so many other individuals working to create a more sustainable planet.
This exhibition will feature several sculpture works, as well as a number of prints of his many "inventions," his global map, and other designs.

Jim Nickel "New Venture Pieces"
March 15 - May 11

Also shown is a complementary exhibition of current work by Jim Nickel. His current work is a revival of a series he began thirty years ago, based on the iconic Venture symbol used by a St. Louis-based department store chain. A logo of black and white diagonal slashes was the "signature," and it provided an inspiration for his early work.  Current pieces are made with rough hewn slabs of native wood, painted black and white, then cut up and reassembled into new forms, losing only sawdust in the process. Volume, pattern, and reflected color are the primary elements of these abstract works.

Bonsack Gallery: Friday, 5 April 2013

A Bonsack Gallery exhibit entitled “Everyday Beauty” will feature the paintings of Julie Wiegand and the jewelry of Nancy Pierson from April 5 through May 7.

Julie Wiegand’s collection of still-life oil paintings was inspired by and painted at Lyon School Studio in rural Berger, Missouri, the artist’s home and studio. Vibrant colors and the play of light convey the joy in everyday life in these works. Subjects range from collected treasures to beautiful food, functional tools to the windowsills of Wiegand’s home. “I have tried to approach each painting for this show with a feeling of new adventure and mainly to work with available natural light on the subjects,” says the artist.

Nancy Pierson says that working in metals, making jewelry in particular, has enabled her to incorporate a variety of media in an intimate scale. Her inspiration comes from the natural world and objects collected along the way — a rusty scrap of metal, a pebble or a vintage photograph. “I like the juxtaposition of materials, and as a result, these found treasures find a home in my work. I am drawn to the textures, patterns, forms and colors that can be achieved,” says the artist.

All are invited to an opening reception hosted by the artists from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, on Friday, April 5. Regular gallery hours are 8 am to 6:30 pm, weekdays. The exhibit is free to the public.

Duane Reed Gallery: Friday, 22 March 2013

Duane Reed Gallery presents the latest work of artist Jay Musler. Exhibition opens Friday, March 22nd with a reception that evening 5 – 8pm. The exhibition will run through April 20th.

An innovative force in the glass arts for over four decades, Jay Musler has an unusual and eccentric style. His large wall pieces are composed of cut and assembled glass, the surfaces of which are saturated with oil paint of his personally inspired color palette. The structures create latticed patterns with hidden flameworked objects, alluding to a found artifact of unknown place or origin. He works with subtly cartoonish shape and uses repetition and juxtaposition to construct objects that both alure and unsettle the viewer. Rather than reflect light, Musler’s glasswork seems to unexpectedly absorb the ambiance. The final effect is one of “extraordinary whimsy and fantasy….a mixture of consummate elegance and exquisite craftsmanship, and they show a changeling imagination of the most fertile and transformative sort” (Urban Glass Quarterly).

White Flag Projects: Saturday, 16 March 2013

March 16 – April 27, 2013
Opening reception Saturday evening, March 16, 6-8 PM

White Flag Projects is pleased to present a one-person exhibition by Tony Matelli. The exhibition will open with a public reception Saturday evening, March 16, from 6 to 8 PM, and will remain on view through April 27, 2013.

Tony Matelli invests his art with layers of familiarity and discomfort, combining remarkable verisimilitude with a darkly comic approach to the function of his subjects within the specific context of the gallery. Matelli's work frequently suspends time and disbelief, pausing images both unlikely and mundane in moments of peculiar aesthetic tension.

White Flag Library is an ancillary exhibition program of White Flag Projects:

White Flag Projects is pleased to present an exhibition of recent work by Davina Semo. The exhibition will open with a free public reception Saturday evening, March 16, from 6-8 PM.

Davina Semo's suggestive titles and post-industrial approach to manufacture simultaneously reveal an emphasis on physical mass and an ironic sensitivity to concept, placing her work within a distinctively charged formal territory. Semo's knowing use of chains, concrete, safety glass, and neon spray paint that comprise her materials infuse her art with gravity and wit, rendering unexpected warmth from her favored materials.

Bruno David Gallery: Friday, 5 April 2013

Front Room: Carmon Colangelo: Glocal Diptychs
Project Room: Chris Kahler: Disequencing
Media Room: Eric Minh Swenson: The Making of La Fonda

Opening Reception Friday, April 5, 2013, from 5 to 9 pm
April 5-May 4, 2013

Bruno David Gallery is pleased to present Alex Couwenberg’s second solo exhibition with the gallery, opening Friday, April 5, 2013. The exhibition titled “Swell” will be on view April 5–May 4, 2013.

A catalogue, Alex Couwenberg: Swell, will be published on the occasion of the exhibition.
Los Angeles based painter Alex Couwenberg’s new paintings explore “process” and the “moment” through tightly controlled compositions of paint and mark making. Couwenberg creates images that are inspired by the elements indigenous to his surroundings. The work references and suggests the aesthetic associated with mid-century modernism, car culture, skateboards, and surfing. Not to leave out, paying homage to the historical styles of post-war art making associated with Los Angeles and Southern California throughout the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s.

Couwenberg’s paintings give a nod towards the Hard-edge abstractionists, the finish fetish, and the light and space artists. Not content to replicate, he uses the sensibility of Eames-era design and hard-edge geometric abstraction as points of departure for creating paintings. His process, an additive and reductive series of moves and passes, creates multilayered environments that are deep and sensual. He harnesses these ideas into harmonious results, reflecting the visual landscape of his local environment.

In the Project Room, the gallery presents an exhibition titled "Disequencing" by Chris Kahler. A new body of work that utilizes a more intimate scale and simplicity that is in contrast to recent works. A duality exists in the work, playing back and forth with questions of depth and causality. David Pagel of the Los Angeles Times wrote of Kahler’s work: “a potent and corrosive beauty, a sublime combination of breakdown and growth, disintegration and accumulation, creation and destruction. Sometimes it seems as if he paints pictures of a world of effervescence, in which solid substances dissolve into roiling gases, steamy atmospheres, and gravity-defying liquid clouds. In his work, it is almost impossible to distinguish between the microscopic and the cosmic, and everything is richer for the confusion.”

In the Front Room, the gallery presents an exhibition by Carmon Colangelo titled “Glocal Diptychs”. Carmon Colangelo’s new work muses about cultural narratives, urban life, human ecologies, globalism, social networking, transcendence, and recording everyday ideas. Glocal Diptychs is a series of seven mixed media prints produced in 2012 at Pele Prints in St. Louis. Each of the works is made from a shared matrix and printed on two sheets of paper using monotype, intaglio, relief process as well as hand-coloring. These prints expand on Colangelo’s interest in architectonic forms and the poetics of space with an eye to our changing notions about place and shifts between geographic location and local identity while contemplating a globalized future.

In the New Media Room, the gallery presents a video-interview of Alex Couwenberg by filmmaker Eric Minh Swenson. The short-film titled “The Making of La Fonda” is directed and produced by Swenson and, is part of an on-going series that focuses on artists’ lives and studio practices in Los Angeles. The music is by The Hitchikers, James Lucchesi, and Mick Cripps and video is 20:32 minutes long. More info can be found on his ongoing Los Angeles project at and the interview can be seen at

David's abstract works are bold and active with line, form and color. Using paper, paint, plastic and other materials, like thumbtacks and plastic, he creates intricate depth fields and layered  landscape-like images. Alongside these large 4 foot paintings are smaller 12 inch works. He has combined both canvases in a few pieces making the work even more active and dimensional. David is not only showing paintings, he also has created many seemingly delicate vessels that also behold his unique style and depth.

Also showing in the studio are a group of new works by owner and artist Julie Malone

World Chess Hall of Fame: thursday, 7 March 2013

Please join us tonight at the World Chess Hall of Fame for the opening reception for Bill Smith: Beyond the Humanities exhibition.

Thursday, March 7th, 6-8p.m.
Artist introduction at 6:30p.m.

Bill Smith's art emerges from an analysis of our increasingly technologically advanced society and our shrinking natural world. With a background in sculpture, microbiology, chemistry, and mechanics, Smith creates art inspired by disciplines outside of the humanities where the aesthetic beauty of Smith's creations is a byproduct of his process. Beyond the Humanities explores how rules guide the creation of our world's structure and behavior. Like Smith's work, chess is defined by patterns, interactions, and rules analogous to the laws of nature. By successfully utilizing the rules of their respective environments, both chess and the natural world produce beautiful and harmonious results.

Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. Complimentary valet.

RSVP to Lauren Stewart at (314) 367-9243 ext 106 or

The World Chess Hall of Fame is located in the heart of Saint Louis' Central West End neighborhood at 4652 Maryland Avenue Saint Louis, MO 63108.

"A modest occupation"
curated by Abigail Satinsky/threewalls
March 15 – April 12, 2013
Opening Reception on March 15th from 7-10pm

"Economics, which Lord Keynes had hoped would settle down as a modest occupation similar to dentistry, suddenly becomes the most important subject of all." – EF Schumacher

"A modest occupation," an exhibition organized in partnership with threewalls (Chicago), addresses the intersection of art and economics through the lens of subscription-based art services. Artists and other creative people who organize their lives around the arts have long dealt with the problem, question, and opportunity of money (or lack thereof) in myriad ways by invoking the very same resourcefulness they've applied to making art. Featuring editions and multiples from art subscriptions across the country, this exhibition is an opportunity to look at these works as more than the byproducts of inventive business models. When viewed collectively, they evoke both the spirit of their distribution method and the art behind the network.

Featuring works from Alula Editions (Bay Area, CA); Art Practical Mail Art Subscription (San Francisco, CA); Community Supported Art Chicago; Community Supported Art Philadelphia;
Community Supported Art Minneapolis; The Drop/NOLA (New Orleans); The Present Group (Bay Area, CA); Regional Relationships (Chicago); The Thing Quarterly (San Francisco, CA); and a special reading room in the window space by Silver Galleon Press.

works by David Burnett
March15 - April7
Opening reception/demonstration: March 15, 2013 7pm-1am

FORT ARROWHEAD is an installation/sculpture series representing childhood wonderment and fascination; especially in regards to the artist's desire to shoot, maim, and destroy.

(Excerpt from the Official Notice of Demonstration, as supplied from Fort Arrowhead HQ)

--Through the use of tactical construction practices, guerrilla model-building, and basic bricolage, FORT ARROWHEAD will consist of a 1:1 scaled model of the command-center fort, field-engineered weapons and devices, booby traps and other forms of anti-personnel device demonstrations, tactical battle literature, field maps, and training programs. These were originally constructed by the artist & his comrades in the Arrowhead area during the mid-1980's. At the time this area was known to be under hostile influence from enemy horse ranchers, subdivision land developers, rival neighborhood punks, the tree bound spirit of a young boy named Scotty, and The Lady With No Face.(text missing)--

One point must be made: here it is that the light which penetrates, infiltrates the canvases, gives rhythm to the hours..
