Duane Reed: Friday, 13 December 2019

Jill Hackney
"My strength is to render what I see. In my artistic vision, I focus not on objects, but upon reflected light, seeing everything, including myself, as a mirror. I paint using vertical lines creating layers of interwoven color, depicting light’s subtlety. Using photography to capture the subject matter for my artwork, I paint a space where the viewer can feel both attached and detached, a sort of emotional and psychological tug-of-war, subtly documenting our trace."

Perry Haas
 "I approach making with a childlike spirit of experimentation and exploration. My work stems from a love of the wood red ceramic surface, particularly how it evokes many beautiful natural phenomena. Like imagining the way wind gathers and deposits leaves on a landscape according to changes in topography, I anticipate the manner in which ash will collect differently on the convex and concave surfaces of my gestural forms. These functional pots are developed as a place for this surface to exist and to be enjoyed as a part of our daily life."

Philip Slein Gallery: Friday, 13 December 2019

John Zinsser, Still in Love, 2019, oil on canvas, 30 x 40"

The Philip Slein Gallery is pleased to present Off the Grid, an exhibition by New York artist John Zinsser. The Brooklyn-based painter received his BA in American Studies and Art History from Yale University.  A veteran of more than 30 solo shows in the United States and Europe, Zinsser explores the most fundamental elements of abstraction: color, ground, space, and gesture. While Zinsser's work acknowledges a universal underlying grid, his current exhibition undermines its rigidity and going “Off the Grid.” In this new group of powerfully expressive paintings Zinsser dares us to join him in a state of pure expression and love of paint.

An Idea of Order is an exhibition inspired by the poem “An Idea of Order at Key West” by Wallace Stevens. Artists have employed mathematics to bring visual harmony to our surroundings with tools such as the golden ratio, perspective and grid systems. From the intricate symmetry of Islamic tile design, to the measured drawings of Agnes Martin, mathematics can create visual harmony and give a sense of order to what appears to be chaotic.

Juror: Joe Chesla
The artwork of this internationally exhibited artist reveals the hidden beauty of natural order and organic process by omitting parts that are superfluous. What remains is a collaboration between Artist and Nature. His aesthetic blends craftsmanship and technical expertise with the eastern sensibilities  of balance, harmony, simplicity, and economy of material.

Framations: Friday, 15 November 2019

Framations Art Gallery invites the public to view a new exhibit of art focusing on all things monochromatic, opening Friday, November 15. Monochrome III will be on display November 15, 2019 - January 9, 2020.

The term monochrome refers to varying tones of one color. It is an essential concept to understand when learning the basics of viewing and creating art. In a monochromatic work or art, focus is on the play of color values and contrast, since the color palette if limited.

For the case of this exhibit, Framations has asked artists to enter work that is at least "primarily" tones of one color. See how the artists explore this range when the exhibit opens on Friday, November 15 from 6-8pm. The exhibit will continue through January 9, 2020. During the full length of the exhibit, visitors will be able to vote for People's Choice, which will be announced at the end of the exhibit.

Framations is open Tuesday - Saturday 10-6 and Sundays 12-5.

Atrium Gallery: Friday, 8 November 2019

"Poem Dress of Circulation," 1993, acrylic, lithography, thread on chiri kozo paper, 48 x 41½ x 8"
 "Lesley Dill: Voice"
November 8 - January 18, 2020
Reception for the Artist, 6-8 pm 

Atrium Gallery invites you to join us to celebrate the inaugural exhibition at our new gallery in The Dorchester, 665 S. Skinker Blvd. We are very pleased to present a solo show by Lesley Dill.
“Lesley Dill: Voice” will feature an extensive group of works involving the use of language intimately mingled with drawings and constructions bringing strong force to the intellectual threads of Dill's work. Her deep rooted interest in literature and connections to her New England legacy and Puritan intellectuals and their writings, mixed with later influences from figures such as Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Faulkner, and Kafka permeate her works. “Poem Dress of Circulation” is a typical expression for her, with words spilling down the delicate object including thread and chiri kozo paper.

The imagery is mostly realized in clothed figures or articles of clothing and she explains “Clothing houses the house that houses the soul.” Her expressions are deep indeed, and she speaks as most artists desire, to universal understandings. This special exhibition celebrates the Opening of the new gallery space for 33 year old Atrium Gallery and marks a new path for this St. Louis gallery as it presents works that seek to move viewers with aesthetics and message, to an enriching experience with art.
