Philip Slein Gallery checks its vision with a new exhibition, 20/20.
Opening Reception:  Friday, February 21, 2020, 5 PM to 8 PM
Exhibition runs through Saturday, March 28, 2020

As we move into a new decade the gallery is taking a look back at many of the artists which we have shown in the past, and looking ahead to envision the future of serious painting.

The Philip Slein Gallery is first and foremost a painting gallery, that is our passion. The gallery’s first exhibition of 2020 will demonstrate this powerfully with a show featuring 20 painters spanning the Modern to Contemporary era. The exhibition clearly represents the gallery’s serious dedication to painting, and includes a very wide group of artists with one thing in common - excellence in painting. 

Jamie Adams, Andrea Belag, Ernestine Betsberg, Richmond Burton, John Dilg, Lori Ellison, Keltie Ferris, Alison Hall, Warren Isensee, Valerie Jaudon, Richard Kalina, Tracy Miller, Arthur Osver, Ann Pibal, David Row, Jackie Saccoccio, Robert Sagerman, Cary Smith, Dan Walsh, John Zinsser

While some in our broadly based art world take great pleasure in bananas duct taped to the wall, we prefer the passion and lasting satisfaction of showing work which will grow in strength over the years. We feel that this approach will reward our viewers and collectors both visually and spiritually, throughout their lives.

Arcade Contemporary Art Projects: Friday, 21 February 2020

Back to Our RootsOpening reception 6 to 9 pm Friday, February 21. The exhibit runs through March 20.
“Our past shapes our unique perspectives, but through exploring our specific experiences, we can build community by recognizing the commonalities and universality of these experiences,” said Sophia Coon, director of the exhibit and a student in Webster’s Department of Art, Design and Art History.
Artists were invited to submit a piece they felt addresses their specific experience and informs their present self. “Back to Our Roots” received just under 50 submissions, of which the jury selected 23 works. 
“Back to Our Roots” is operating on its values of generosity and gratitude. Merchandise featuring “Back to Our Roots” graphics will be for sale at the exhibition’s opening. The proceeds will be donated directly to Bread & Roses Missouri. The mission of Bread & Roses Missouri, which is to use “an arts lens to examine social and economic justice issues,” in addition to their belief that “cultural and creative expression are a means to affect deep and lasting social change” aligns closely with the goals of this exhibition.
“With this exhibition, we hope to promote healing by finding gratitude in the act of confronting our pasts,” Coon said. “We believe healing is the first necessary step to resisting oppressive systems and finding peace.”

Opening Public Reception Friday, January 24, 2020, 6-8 pm
The exhibition runs through, Feb. 28, 2020

The exhibition 20/20, curated by Kasper Lorene Woldtvedt, Project Manager for Barrett Barrera Projects, focuses on the infinitive “to see” as a constructed noun rather than a verb…and vision as an art subject as well as an object.

The works contained within the 20/20 exhibition consider the convergences of the activity and psychology of looking at art as well as the art of seeing. The exhibition includes a diverse body of work that includes film, objects, and works by more than 20 artists. Artists include Miami-based sculptor and set designer Brookhart Jonquil, South Korean designer Aggie Nam/Godsomware, and Los Angeles-based new media artist Rollin Leonard.

Brookhart Jonquil will present a lecture about his work on Friday, January 24th from Noon – 1 pm in Sverdrup 123 on Webster’s campus.

Hours: 10 am-5 pm Tuesday – Saturday.

Back to Our Roots is a diverse and inclusive exhibition of Webster University student work that aims to address a reconciliation with the past. Where we come from and what we've experienced shapes us into who we are, for better and for worse. Our past also shapes our unique perspectives and view of the world.

Our goals for the show includes creating the opportunity for Webster students to experience the process of submitting proposals and exhibiting their work in a professional capacity, as well as facilitating interaction and collaboration between Webster University departments.

This exhibit, title Beyond the Lens XIV, will begin with an Opening Reception January 17 from 6-8pm.

Popular among both artists and visitors to the gallery, Beyond the Lens is the only exhibit that is held on an annual basis at the gallery. According to the owner, Sarah Merideth, "Beyond the Lens was the first juried exhibit we held at the gallery, only a few short months after we opened in 2006. We knew from the great response that we would want to produce the exhibit annually. All year long, we are asked when the annual photo show will be." The exhibit will continue through February 27, 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.

The opening reception on January 17 is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served and the artists will be present to speak with visitors.

Laumeier Sculpture Park: Saturday, 15 February 2020

Mark Dion: Follies
Opening on Saturday, February 15, 11 am – 1:30 pm with artist remarks at 11:30 am.
Artist lecture at Webster University’s Winifred Moore Auditorium on Friday, February 14 at Noon.

Mark Dion has fashioned a world-wide reputation as an innovative sculptor and installation artist whose points of departure include the intersections of the historical and the contemporary, as well as the man-made and natural worlds. Mark Dion: Follies is the most comprehensive look at the artist’s architectural works from the 1990s to the present; sheds or shacks filled with the tools of the trade for scientists, botanists and naturalists who live in, study and collect natural specimens. Laumeier will present selections from the original exhibition. Visitors will experience sculptural installations such as Hunting Blind (The Glutton) and Hunting Blind (The Dandy Rococo), Dion’s elaborate takes on the outdoor protective structures used by hunters, as well as The Memory Box, a shed filled with dozens of keepsake objects stored in individual containers that suggest the ways that inanimate objects are associated with treasured memories. Approximately one dozen drawings, prints and photographs will round out the presentation

Duane Reed: Friday, 21 February 2020

Ken Worley
"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."

Lesley Richmond
"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."
