Laumeier Sculpture Park: Saturday, 2 Mach 2019



How We See: Materiality and Color
March 2 to June 30, 2019
March 2 opening reception beginning at 11 a.m. includes a gallery talk with Jedediah Caesar, Anne Lindberg and Odili Donald Odita at 11:30 a.m. and an outdoor performance by Claire Ashley at 1 p.m. COFFEE + CONVERSATION withClaire Ashley Saturday, April 13, 2019 at 11 am, performance on Saturday, April 13 at Noon and Friday, June 7, 2019 at 7 p.m.

How We See: Materiality and Color investigates how each artist uses color and material to enliven and amplify artwork’s form, shape, and surface. Some deal explicitly with color and its possibilities in mapping space, while others play with the power of perception. Each calls attention to the precise material interplay of the natural and the synthetic, by creating objects that have inherent and manipulated qualities. At first glance, the exhibition is a straight-forward chromatic display, however upon looking closer, a more complex interpretation is revealed. These artists’ colored materials are the product of modern technology in material sciences, but also derived from nature. This exhibition does more than show the beauty of color. It suggests that the artists’ production of countless color variations and applications is similar to nature in that both are subject to manipulation and change.

Foundry Art Center: Friday, 22 February 2019


Zuania Muñiz-Meléndez: “Island Beauty”

The Opening will be on February 22nd from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.
Artist Talk on the Opening Date at 5:30 pm.
Closing date on April 5th, 2019.

In her eleven 24”x36”photographs, Zuania provides the spectator the pleasure of contemplating the intimate dialogue between nature and human beings. To do this, she juxtaposes tropical flowers found in Puerto Rico with human subjects. As part of her creative process Zuania uses the definite article in Spanish, which conveys a binomial differentiation between feminine and masculine, to select the human subject. Her photography work can be characterized as constructed, staged and stylized, with unrelenting pursuit of detail.

Sacred Grounds: Friday 29 March 2019



A group of new paintings by Dr. Andy Dykeman will be exhibited at Sacred Grounds Coffee in Edwardsville from March 29 until Apriil 26, 2019 with an opening celebration from 7:00 to 9:00 on March 29th.  Refreshments will be served.

The show is curated and sponsored by The GoghGetters.  

Andy Dykeman pursues his professional and personal life with an enviable enthusiasm. His hands are his tools of trade in both crafts he enjoys — medicine and art.


Dykeman, who works as a chiropractor, believes in the power of healing. For some chiropractors, ART is an active release technique used to heal people, but for Dykeman the creation of art itself is what’s healing.

Since his childhood, Dykeman expressed his creativity through one art form or another. He has a flair for it. “I’ve always loved to paint and draw,” he said. “In seventh grade, I started playing the drums and that changed everything.”

The calling to be creative didn’t stop after he began working as a chiropractor, but it did slow down. 
“I’ve always drawn, painted and wrote stories,” he said. “I was a little busier. Then my dad died, and I felt the need to start painting again.”

“I developed a new style when I started painting again, and it makes me happy,” he said

Flood Plain: Saturday, 23 February 2019


Vincent Stemmler: Armature opens with a public reception on Saturday, February 23, 6-9pm. The exhibition will remain on display until Saturday, March 23.

Featuring the work of Vincent Stemmler, “Armature” features ceramics, sculpture, and multimedia work that explore the personal and cultural legacies of industrialization, mechanization, and mass production. Combining mass-produced objects and trash with natural materials such as clay, dirt and grass, Stemmler recasts these industrial (by)products as main characters in an alternative, fragmentary history of late capitalism. Playing off this multi-perspectival facet of the artist's work, the show’s title harnesses the several, seemingly contradictory, meanings of the term “armature,” which simultaneously connotes both underlying frameworks or structures and also armor or physical or spiritual defenses. Rather than working to conceal or resolve this tension, Stemmler’s sculptures make themselves at home in this point of disjuncture, inviting the viewer to do the same.

Open gallery hours are held Saturdays, 12-5pm, or by appointment.

Sitting Bull S**t: The quiet history and persecution of the Native American by Craig Norton
Friday, February 22, 2019 6 – 9 PM

“Out of sight out of mind” is a phrase that is quite relevant when it comes to the Native American. The gruesome history and ghastly genocide of the Native American people goes mostly unrealized and unnoticed. So many examples of stereotypes and truths not spoken lye scattered throughout history. Popular literature, folklore, and misinformation help feed into this misguided way of thinking at the time. With this said hopefully this exhibit evokes a curiosity into finding the truth and seeking the whole story about these wonderful people.
