Duane Reed Gallery: Friday, 16 December 2016

December 16th - January 28th
Opening Reception Friday, December 16th 5-8 p.m.

We are very excited to be exhibiting two St. Louis based painters who are working within the narrative of landscapes. Bogosian’s work puts special emphasis on the expansiveness of the sky in relation to the scenery, capturing nature’s sublime essence, while Burnett’s abstracted compositions create a kaleidoscope effect that maintain a sense a familiarity while provoking the viewers curiosity.

AHZAD BOGOSIAN - Channeling the Midwest and Western landscapes as sources for his mood-rich paintings, Bogosian has developed an extensive and breathtaking body of work. His work is a response to the atmospheric, sublime qualities and spiritual essence that exists in landscapes.

DANIEL BURNETT - Daniel’s paintings are psychedelic orchestrations exploring tension and fluidity in ever changing mercurial patterns. Marks and shapes of color establish rules of format and then break their own rules, creating structured and highly technical, though interrupted and imperfect, compositions. These incredibly precise compositions are achieved without the use of tape or stencil.

Millitzer Studio & Gallery: Friday, 2 December 2016

an elegy for Marco
Opening Friday, December 2, 2016, 7-10 PM
Performance active from 7-9 PM
Free and open to the public

On view 12/2-12/30 by appointment

The Millitzer Studio & Gallery presents an elegy for Marco, an exhibition of new works by Catalina Ouyang. Through the lens of a second-generation Chinese-American woman, Ouyang navigates identity, desire and the legacy of imperialism. The notion of fetish is central as both spiritual object (talisman, amulet, relic) and sexual proclivity, evoking questions of representation, sanctity, artificiality and objectification. Loaded positionalities interrogate the duality of resistance and self-subjugation: the dilemma of trying to contradict power dynamics in white heteropatriarchy without reinforcing those very tenets. Whiteness is aspiration, fetish, hand of oppression, tool of erasure; an elegy for Marco contends with this violent history by underscoring empathy, consent and the necessity of vulnerability.

Reese Gallery: Friday, 18 November 2016

Opening Reception: Friday November 18th from 6pm to 9pm

In PAST | PRESENT, two artists revisit icons of the nation's past as they create a more meaningful present. Printmaker and painter, KYLE GALLUP (NY), explores the Wonder Wheel, built in the 1920s at the Coney Island amusement park. A fantastic symbol of industry, the Ferris wheel also suggests the wheel of life as a mandala that is "silent, ghostly, noisy and whole". Sculptor PETE HALLADAY (CO), heads west for his inspiration, as he investigates the horse as a symbol of bygone days - a symbol that still informs our American identity. HALLADAY builds with found objects, integrating the vocabulary of the past into the forms of his work, touching upon freedom, conquest, movement, awkward grace, heavy use and wisdom gained from long experience. Both artists bring a whimsical sense of wonder to the exhibit.

Artists will be present at the opening. There will be light refreshment at this event which is free and open to the public.  Reese Gallery is located in the Cherokee Arts Neighborhood, just off of Antique Row.

Cecille R. Hunt Gallery: Friday, 4 November 2016

The Cecille R. Hunt Gallery at Webster University will exhibit Clark Stoeckley: The United States vs. Private Chelsea Manning from Nov. 4-Dec. 10, 2016. The opening reception is Friday, Nov. 4, 2016, beginning at 6 p.m.
Drawing in real time from inside the courtroom, Clark Stoeckley captured first-hand the extraordinary drama of the Manning trial, one of the most important and secretive trials in American history.
In the course of the trial, Private Manning insisted that her release of State Department cables, Collateral Murder video, and Iraq and Afghanistan war logs to WikiLeaks was an act of conscience, justified by the urgent need to reveal to the world the atrocities committed by the U.S. military in the ostensible cause of freedom.
At the prosecution table, military lawyers for the American government sought to set an example and discourage future whistleblowers by locking away Manning for decades, possibly the rest of her life. Stoeckley’s vivid sketches from inside the court and beyond, trace the evidence, witness testimony, and arguments as they move back and forth between the defense and the prosecution
This show consists of 286 drawings.

Philip Slein Gallery: Thursday, 3 November 2014

PHILIP SLEIN GALLERY is pleased to celebrate and host a wine and cheese reception for Dan and Connie Burkhardt and Bryan Haynes as they present and sign their new book...

Cover art by Bryan Haynes illustrates the march of time along the Missouri River since 1806. Carolina parakeets, once found in the river valley, dot the white bark of a sycamore tree and one carries a bur oak acorn. Osage Indians, steamboats and the parakeets are gone but the oak trees, like the mythical bur oak in our story, remain - witnesses to history.

Thursday, November 3, 5:30 - 7:30 PM
All proceeds from sales of the book go to the Katy Land Trust and Magnificent Missouri
