Bruno David Gallery: Friday, 9 May 2014

May 9 – June 21, 2014
Opening Reception: Friday, May 9th, from 5:00 to 9:00 pm

CHRIS D. SMITH Interaction (Front Room)
MARTIN LANG Forever Untitled (names sake) (New Media Room)

OVERVIEW_2014 is a group exhibition surveying the work by artists affiliated with the Bruno David Gallery. The artworks, mostly done in 2013 and 2014, will highlight the vitality and creativity of these artists. In this overview, a single conclusion about one type of artwork cannot be clearly defined in a single adjective. Instead, the following artists break down the word ‘original’ to form new meanings of the definition. Originality, therefore, can lie anywhere on the spectrum of surrealism, primary, impulsive, imaginative, structural chaos, color, form, design, intention, deception, representational, honesty, direct, dreamlike, sought imagery, reality and/or perceptions of all or neither or several.

Some of the artists include: Laura Beard, Bunny Burson, Carmon Colangelo, William Conger, Alex Couwenberg, Jill Downen, Yvette Drury Dubinsky, Damon Freed, Douglass Freed, Joan Hall, Richard Hull, Ellen Jantzen, Kelley Johnson, Chris Kahler, Leslie Laskey, Gary Passanise, Daniel Raedeke, Patricia Olynyk, Charles P. Reay, Tom Reed, Charles Schwall, Shane Simmons, Thomas Sleet, Buzz Spector, Cindy Tower, Mario Trejo, Ken Worley, and many others.

In the Front Room, the gallery presents an exhibition “Interaction” by Chris D. Smith.
In contemporary art making, the languages of abstraction are almost inextricable from their academic and theoretical histories, but instead of simply reiterating any of these well-worn dialogues, he opts to only sample them. Chris D. Smith’s artwork focuses on attention to emotional detail. He uses his experiences to bind tension, experience [as in through time], and harmony as a result of contrasting organic and geometric forms to enlighten the viewer’s perceptions and enhance human cerebral capacities. Purposefully exposing the layered history of paintings, he instills the works with a complexity that mirrors that of a personal experience. His paintings reminiscence the pains, joys, failures, challenges, and accomplishments he has experienced throughout his life, therefore essentially creating never-ending opportunities to continue his practice.

In the New Media Room, the gallery presents a video work “Forever Untitled (names sake)”
by Martin Lang.
Forever Untitled (names sake) challenges represented space and plays with the sequencing of text. Depicting an installation of large-scale neon letters, the video raises the question: why are we are seeing it as a video and not installed as depicted? The blinking letters reference neon signage, advertising something that is, in this instance, quite cryptic. The looping text can form words, but ultimately becomes a never-ending visual pattern. The audio dually references the hum of the neon lighting that is depicted, as well as the digital nature of the piece. His work facilitates and critiques the world through direct and indirect interaction. This takes form through recontextualization and appropriation of everyday, commercially produced or banal objects and experiences. This video is part of a larger body of work titled Digital Futures.

On the same night May 9th, the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (CAM) will open the exhibition Great Rivers Biennial 2014 in the Main Gallery and, in the Front Room, Brenna Youngblood: Loss Prevention. In addition, The PXSTL temporary art installation will also open that night. PXSTL, located next to the Bruno David Gallery, is a project from the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, and the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis. The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts will also be open that evening. A free shuttle will run between Grand Center and the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum. 

Hours: Wed-Sat 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Dave Rocco: 365 Project
Friday, May 2nd 6-8pm
Fontbonne University Fine Arts Building
MFA show
-All 365 prints up for display, one night only-
Additional information and samples can be found at my fotovisura page.

During 2013, I spent 365 days taking photographs of my everyday life. It didn't start that way. I was hoping to take a lot of street photography, I love street photographs, but something was missing. I was hoping to go out three or four times a week to random neighborhoods and just grab little slices of life, but the results looked forced. Or rather, being there felt forced. It just didn't work. I also realized that just living my normal life required me to be in all kinds of places throughout the week. Simple solution, carry the camera everywhere, always, all the time. So, I did, as seen in a slide show by instagrammer @wigflipa

Gallery Fifty09: Friday, 25 April 2014

Dancing with the Devil in the Deep Blue Sea
Mandy Halford

April 25 – May 23, 2014
Opening Reception: April 25 from 8-10 pm

In this series Halford uses different visual entanglements to abstractly explore the mental and physical obstacles we can both envelop ourselves in and protrude on the world and its wildlife. Mandy Halford’s work can also be looked at as autobiographic as she examines different topics and how they reflect on herself and uncover her subconscious. Halford works from both live models and photographs.
Mandy Halford's works range from sculpture and painting to illustration. Visually Halford is interested in forms expanding and intertwining creating both soft organic shapes and harsh intricate ones. Halford’s passion for the creative process only continues to grow as does her repertoire of artwork.

Duane Reed Gallery: Friday, 23 May 2014

May 23rd through June 28th
Opening Reception Friday, May 23rd from 5-8 p.m.

About her work, she reflects: “The desire to create a believable sense of life pulls me forward as a maker. In my recent work, I sculpt animal forms out of inanimate materials that rely on touch to take shape, like clay, string, and hair. In the traditions of the grotesque and the uncanny, I am interested in the intersections between the familiar and strange, beautiful and repugnant, human and animal, alive and dead. My work investigates the possibility that perhaps in the shared space of these dualities, there can be understanding of and empathy for beings that are not human.”

Duane Reed Gallery: Friday, 23 May 2014

MAY 23rd through June 28th
Opening Reception May 23rd from 5-8 p.m.

Eva Isaksen’s intricate artworks are created through an equally intricate process combining collage, printmaking, and painting techniques. Using items from her garden, Isaksen creates monoprints on fiber paper, which are layered with an acrylic medium, leaving visible only what has been printed. Each artwork consists of numerous layers of monoprints, creating one cohesive composition full of color and depth. Material and environment dialogue within her vision as organic forms, seasons, cycles, growth, and regeneration transform into order, repetition, and rhythm. Her art-making process of print, resist, and reduction further resembles the growth and cyclic changes in nature.

Gallery 210 Presents Poetry of the Wild/St. Louis Fusion
April 18, 2014

Poetry of the Wild/ St Louis Fusion is a collaborative project created by Ana Flores; a Rhode Island based artist and visiting artist at Gallery 210. The project uses a unique presentation of "poetry boxes" combining art and poetry as a catalyst to explore our city and consider how spaces inform mindfulness. The voices and vision of the project come from local poets, artists and students who live here and take inspiration from their surroundings. The installations of the poetry boxes are scheduled to be completed by May 2, 2014 and remain in place through August 2, 2014.

Flores created the first Poetry of the Wild project in 2003 when she was an artist in residence for the Wood-Pawcatuck Watershed Association in Southern Rhode Island. Her mission was to use the arts as a way to foster public awareness and stewardship of the land and waterways protected by the Association. The successful template for that project which encouraged community engagement in the making of the boxes, response to site, and creating a walking trail has been repeated over the past decade throughout the East Coast in urban and rural areas.

The poetry boxes will be installed in the Central West End, Grand Center Art District, and on the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus. Poetry walks inaugurate each of the projects, with poets and artists present to read and talk about their collaborations.

The first walk for Poetry of the Wild/St Louis Fusion will be on May 2nd, 2014 beginning with a reception at Centro Modern Furnishings at 6 pm followed by the walk to boxes in the area at 6:45pm.

On May 3rd, 2014: A reception will be held for the boxes installed on the UMSL campus at 2:00pm at the Millennium Student Center, First Floor Patio. This will be followed by a poetry walk on campus to the various sites- both indoors and outside

The St Louis based poet/artist collaborators are as follows: Julia Gordon-Bramer GinaAlvarez, Jennifer Tapenden Ron Fondaw, Jane Birdsall-Lander Jane Birdsall Lander, Jennifer Fandel-Phil Robinson, Matt Freeman-Jennifer Goldring, Jennifer Tapenden-Emily Hemeyer, Kathy Miller- Melody Evans, Kim Lozano-Buzz Spector, Treasure Redmond Shields-Ana Flores, Marison Ramirez-Steve Dalay, Richard Newman-Joe Chesla, Jennifer Tapenden-Greg Edmondson and Mike Behel, Jennifer Goldring-Jennifer Goldring

Green Door art gallery: Friday, 9 May 2014

“A Taste of Greece” will be one of the exhibits being shown at the reception, May 9, from 5-9 pm.  Featuring the photography of Cheryl Dorris, along with with foods that are traditional in the Aegean region, all to help you experience the feeling of traveling to Greece without leaving Webster Groves, Missouri. Exhibit runs thru June 28, 2014.

Cheryl Dorris has only been to Greece twice. The first time was only briefly, but she instantly fell in love with the people and the way of life; the color and sheer beauty of the islands. In addition to Athens, she visited and photographed a few islands, but her favorite is Santorini. The second 10 day trip to Greece was spent almost wholly on that island alone. She stayed in Oia Village, at the tip of the island. For those who have been there, the crisp blues and whitewashed buildings are unmistakable, and are quintessential Greece. She relished in photographing not only the sunsets, but the cafes and alleyways, the distinctive architecture, the small details and vibrant colors of this enchanting land.

Del Dace will be exhibiting his pen and ink drawings and watercolor paintings of his travels and places that have inspired him and some designs from his murals.

Our two guest jewelers are, Allison L. Norfleet Bruenger, whose main focus is in nature and the beauty of the  female image and Nancy Koehler, with her fine silver, coral, shells and more.

Hours are Wednesday thru Sunday 10:00 am to 5:00 pm- Closed Monday and Tuesday

Art Saint Louis proudly presents "Silence & Noise," a new multi-media art exhibition currently on view through May 29, 2014 in the Art Saint Louis Gallery at 1223 Pine Street in downtown St. Louis. We are pleased to announce that this exhibition actually opened a couple of weeks earlier than originally scheduled and is indeed up, open & ready for viewing!

Please join us in the Art Saint Louis Gallery next Saturday evening, April 19 from 6-8 p.m. for the free opening reception for "Silence & Noise." Parking suggestions can be found at the bottom of this email. If you miss the reception, the exhibit is on view through Thursday, May 29 and Gallery hours are Monday, 7 a.m.-4 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, 7 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday, 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Closed Sundays & holidays, including closed for Memorial day weekend & Memorial day.

Silence & Noise features 55 artworks by 49 St. Louis regional artists from Missouri and Illinois. The artworks in this multi-media exhibit include paintings, film and digital photography, printmaking, woodwork, mixed media, glass, drawing, and more.

Silence & Noise was an all media juried exhibit. Works in this exhibition reflect the push/pull of either noise or silence. The two concepts of opposites are examined, demonstrating how silence and noise work both as a force against AND alongside one another. Artworks featured are either comprised of clean, simple lines and are visually silent, OR the artworks are multi-layered, messy and thereby visually noisy. In addition to the physically representation, artworks that are conceptually silent or noisy are also presented.

Serving as Jurors for this exhibition were artist Marie Bannerot McInerney, Professor, Fiber Department, Kansas City Art Institute, Kansas City, MO, and artist Gary Passanise, Professor, Webster University, and founder, Executive Director, The Santo Foundation, St. Louis, MO.

TWAIN'S WORLD!  ONE NIGHT ONLY… 4-18-14.com  7 pm
Professional Dress Code Required

This show features over 50 pieces from Smithey's Mark Twain series.

Smithey views himself less as a painter, sculptor or draftsmen or even just an artist for that matter.  He sees himself as a creator, a creator of ideas and tangible things, a creator without the limitations of labels like artist, writer, inventor, etc.

The Mark Twain series is the dissection of the process of creation and is the culmination of years of exploration, evolution and innovation in that process. To Zack, it's more about the journey than the destination. There are an infinite number of ways to get from point A to point B. He is discovering and inventing new pathways to his destination. Instead of creating a series that is dominated by a single style, this series seeks to explore variations in technique while unifying the series with a single subject, Mark Twain. The Mark Twain series is not only a testament to Zack’s inventive spirit, but also pays homage to one of the most celebrated figures in modern literature; who just so happens to be from our own backyard… Hannibal, Missouri.
