Cecille R. Hunt Gallery: Friday, 19 November 2021

Publish or Perish! November 19, 2021 – January 14, 2022.

Please join us Friday, November 19th at The Cecille R. Hunt Gallery from 5:00pm to 7:30pm for exhibition opening of: Publish or Perish!

Special Guest speaker: Michael Schneider will join us from Tokyo via Zoom at 6:00pm
Register in advance for this meeting:
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Publish or Perish! Will exhibit prints, objects and video works by professors and assistants in the Printmaking Laboratory at Tokyo University of the Arts, Tokyo, Japan. The long history of printmaking in Asia builds a strong foundation for the work that is currently being created at the Printmaking Laboratory of the Tokyo University of the Arts and the present exhibition suggests how globalization and digitalization have expanded that tradition. For centuries printmaking as a medium has served as a means to publish and to spread ideas, to enter into the social discourse and political arena.

William Shearburn Gallery: Thursday, 21 October 2021

Robert Motherwell, Untitled, 1971, Acrylic on canvas, 15 3/4 x 11 1/2 inches


October 21 - November 24, 2021
Opening Reception, Thursday, October 21, 5 - 7 pm

In the late 1960s, Robert Motherwell embarked on what became known as his Open series. Focused upon the theme of the window, these intimate and meditative works create a metaphor for the relationship between the inner and outer worlds. Often consisting of a single block of color broken up with several vertical and horizontal lines, these works exemplify his conceptual and philosophical standpoint, his strong ties to minimalism and his role as a seminal Abstract Expressionist.

Robert Motherwell, who lived from 1915-1991, has been characterized as one of the most important artists of the Post-War era. He became known as the leading figure of the Abstract Expressionists and the New York School (a term coined by him), both for contributing to and for defining the movement with his impressive body of work and his far-reaching intellect.

Sheldon Art Galleries: Friday, 5 November 2021

Tate Foley – In Shadows
Bellwether Gallery of St. Louis Artists
Dissemination of information is of great interest to Tate Foley. He engages with far-reaching formats including newspapers, printed bills, religious tracts and other various printed ephemera as it explores real, tangible, ubiquitous contact rather than idiosyncratic experience. Questions about access to art have been a large focus of his work in recent years.

Brett Williams - Minimal
Gallery of Music
Brett Williams never learned to play a musical instrument. This has affected his work in that he strives to create his own music. Heavily influenced by the American cartoonist Rube Goldberg, Williams has made it his mission to create working machines that can make sound through lo- and hi-tech methods.

Carly Slade - Rat Race
Gallery of Photography
Slade believes that buildings and the spaces they occupy are vessels. They hold within them residue of the lives that have passed through them, while their outsides are reflections of their time and place. By freezing these historical markers in miniature form, Slade’s buildings are constructed in 2-point perspective to keep a record of the space’s journey: from its life-sized 3D form, to a 2D online record, and back again to 3D in miniature. Free Gallery Talk with Carly Slade: Saturday, November 6 at 11 a.m.

Abbey Hepner - Redacted Landscapes
Bernoudy Gallery of Architecture
Redacted Landscapes investigates radioactive sites across the U.S. through aerial photographs of uranium disposal cells and uranotypes of sites that transport nuclear waste to the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) in New Mexico. Hepner’s artistic practice examines health, technology and our relationship with place through photography, performance, video and installation-based work. She frequently works at the intersection of art and science, investigating biopolitics and the use of health as a currency. Free Gallery Talk with Abbey Hepner: Saturday, November 20 at 11 a.m.

Virtual/Visual: The Art of Remote Learning
Grand Center Arts Academy Student Work 2020-2021 AT&T Gallery of Children’s Art
During the 2020-2021 school year, the Grand Center Arts Academy’s Visual Department worked hard to transition their in-person curriculum to a remote learning format during the pandemic. Teachers created art kits for every student that were specifically designed for each assignment in ceramics, painting, drawing, printmaking and graphic design. The exhibit features works and presentations created through virtual teaching and demonstrations.

Emmett Merrill - Tornado
Nancy Spirtas Kranzberg Gallery
Emmett Merrill uses the lithographic process to create narrative prints which combine Americana imagery with myth. The prints deal with the emptiness of the American landscape, the derivation of ghost stories, Art History objects and highway rest stop culture.

Jane McKenzie - Nocturnes
Konneker Gallery
Jane McKenzie’s work over the last several years focuses on nocturnal observations from her backyard or apartment window, painted each night between sunset and midnight. This body of work has evolved into an investigation of urban backyard habitat and the vital function urban greenspaces and small backyards have in our lives and in the current climate crisis.

Parish Gallery: Friday, 22 October 2021

After MANY months staying dark, the Parish Gallery is reopening with an exhibit of figurative drawings by Douglas Simes.  The exhibit will be available for viewing October 19 through December 18, and there will be a reception Friday, October 22, from 6 to 8 p.m.  

 From Douglas: I am a draftsman.  My project is the figure and portrait.

My life in the arts includes work in architecture and professional acting, disciplines that inform my drawing practice in cogent ways.  My inner architect trusts in anatomy as a fundamental generator of bodily form and keeps vigil over issues of perspective and compositional design.  The actor in me seeks to establish a rapport with my subject that reveals a connection both intimate and palpable.  

I work in graphite, ink pen, sanguine pencil and black chalk.  My drawing technique references Renaissance and Baroque masters; it is grounded in the revelation of gesture, structure and topology.  I strive for precision, both in the details of form and psychological expression.

When COVID precluded life drawing, I embarked on a series of “memory” drawings, expanding and reimagining images from family snapshots taken in 50’s and 60’s.  This acutely personal expedition recently explored the face of my mother captured in a moment of midlife depression.  

Whether from life or a photographic source, the act of drawing is an act of engagement.

Arcade Contemporary Art Projects : Friday, 10 September 2021

 "The University Collects: Highlights from the Permanent Collection"

A University's collection reflects its history and heritage, the information contained in an image serving as a significant source of research for new knowledge and interdisciplinary links for study and community.

Through the leadership and generosity of several alumni and friends as some of the region's foremost art collectors, Webster University has amassed a survey of work by historically important artists for exhibition, enrichment, and for study. Including works by James Brown, Marilyn Minter, Faith Ringgold, and Warhol, the curated works in this exhibit, "The University Collects", have not been available for view by the public, some for over 30 years. Join us in the Main Gallery of Arcade Contemporary Art Projects on the first floor of Webster's Gateway Campus, to gather in celebration, gratitude and to be inspired and challenged by these enduring gifts of visual art.

Masks required. 5:30-8:30 pm.

Installation, Kit Keith: I Live Alone 


Inspired by outsider art and artists such as Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol, legendary St. Louis artist Kit Keith will often paint over found materials from thrift stores, old magazines and advertisements. This exhibition consists of over fifty female portraits, each one painted with acrylic on found onion skin letterhead and created over a few months’ time during the pandemic. Each portrait is reflective of the artist’s disposition on the day on which it was created.  Whether happiness, angst, relief, contentment, frustration, anger, joy or loneliness, each portrait conveys in itself, a feeling.

HEATHER BENNETT Blueprint Kit for Lilly (Window on Forsyth)
Exhibition Dates: March 27 – May 29, 2021

Opening Reception will be Saturday, March 27th, from 3 to 8 pm (No appointment necessary.) To maintain safety standards and social distancing, masks will be required, and a reduced number of attendees will be allowed in the gallery at one time. Free indoor parking. 

Then & Now, an exhibition by Leslie Laskey. Laskey, who is 100 this year, has the ability to create and inspire, as well as challenge and amuse become ever more apparent with each exhibition. 

Gummies Tame Stones, an exhibition of new paintings by Sara Ghazi Asadollahi. “Alienation” is defined as "a withdrawing or separation of a person or a person's affections from an object or position of former attachment;" a detachment from the origin yet connected to it through invisible bonds, formally or conceptually. This body of work Gummies Tame Stones considers the concept of alienation and the dynamic between alienated objects and figures in empty spaces. Empty and abandoned spaces play a significant role in her work. Referencing an "original world," empty spaces provide a detachment from time and space and highlight the relationship between the objects within. The architectural forms in these paintings are painted from the sculpture pieces (made of cement and plexiglass) inspired by bunkers and abandoned places. Detached from their source, they represent fragments that simultaneously belong to the world of their origin and are torn from the real object of the derived milieu. Alienation could happen in different stages of life due to some internal or external changes, a separation from self, family, society, or community. Whatever the reason, it creates a pause in the status quo and leaves a void in the psyche. The void which opens a space for the alienated objects to challenge, embrace and deal with the estrangement. The gap is created to be filled with the representation of fragments, vacillating between a passage to the future and a world of fetishes.

Blueprint Kit for Lilly by Heather Bennett is an installation in the gallery’s vitrine space, WINDOW ON FORSYTH (Downtown Clayton, viewable 24/7). Photographic images have traditionally depicted space, revealing people and objects, they are the stuff of illusion. They are also things. At the intersection of these identities is a kind of gooey vacillation as we look at and through a photographic image in contemporary culture. This work seems to depict exactly what the series title, Photos of Gifts, describes, however, objects are often wrapped with magazine images complicating illusionistic space, as well as, obscuring object identities. Women acting as objects for magazine advertisements are subtly transformed here to the focused subjects of the images only to then be flattened, inextricable from the object portrait, as they are wrapped around that object and tied with a bow. The subject/ object reversal of the female form gets a sea-sickening treatment. The small act of wrapping a gift becomes a potent metaphor, exploding within its supposedly quiet, often assumed to be feminine place. In this window installation, a candied vacuousness is implied, even embraced. Glossy lips and curled pink ribbons float over a dusky pink carpet mimicking a cloying set for Teen Vogue. We don’t expect to find the critical here playing precocious as it winks and sways and just barely, gazes back.

Cast, a video work by Sara Ghazi Asadollahi, examines chance and accident. It indicates a rule in video games in which the world is not fully programmed, and the background is not an accessible part of the game, unless there is a connection to the next move/stage. The set design in the video was created using a painting and a sculpture by Sara Ghazi Asadollahi. Both came from her last body of work exploring the concept of ruins and abandoned places in a dystopian science fiction mode. Following the video games rule above, abandoned places featured a similar function in relation to the world: while still a part of the world, they have lost their original function. Like a sleeping monster, they are hiding in the background of the world as if waiting to be provoked by an accident to return to a banal cycle of the world.

Public Hours Tuesday-Saturday 11-5 pm, and by appointment. Closed Sundays and Mondays.

 BUZZ SPECTOR: Paper made and unmade
Saint Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective WADE: Media Room
Exhibition Dates: January 30 – March 13, 2021

Due to the pandemic, the Opening Reception will be Saturday, January 30th, from 2 to 8 pm.

This new exhibit at Bruno David Gallery, brings together Buzz Spector’s torn paper works from the 1990s, including the series, Painting, and selected Author works, with recent works of handmade paper produced at three studios over the past three years; Megan Singleton in St. Louis, Helen Frederick in Silver Springs, MD, and Joan Hall in Jamestown, RI. The handmade paper works have not previously been exhibited.

Sea Lover is an exhibition by Kansas City-based artistCharles Schwall. It is an exploration of two material languages, paint and textiles; the exhibition is comprised of large canvas paintings and sewn fabric appliqué pieces. By placing these two material languages (two material bodies of knowledge) in conversation with one another, the work investigates concepts of surface, gendered space, fluidity, and overall softness. The aesthetic trajectory in the work is one of openness, growth, the expansion of organic systems, and morphology. The conversation between paint and textiles occurs in various ways, such as painted forms that depict cloth, pattern, and textiles; use and reference of the vocabulary of sewing, such as folding and creasing, seaming, tucks, and pleats; and a semi-transparent use color, similar to a veil of fabric, in that it simultaneously hides and reveals. Many of the works also explore fabric’s innate water-like quality, such as the way cloth moves, ruffles, and twists in space. The title of the Sea Lover exhibition is inspired by concepts from French philosopher Luce Irigaray, who explores the complex, and sometimes controversial, relationship that exists between the feminine and the fluid. In this sense, the Sea Lover exhibition interrogates and critiques modernist structures through the point of view of water. In the paintings, organic forms break open, spill forward, and emerge from either the center or the outside edge of the picture plane. Shapes and patterns break free and/or split apart; fold inward and/or wrap around; and open in ways that evoke the growth or birth process. There is interaction of various parts, yet emptiness remains central to the picture plane of each canvas. The work seeks to create places of openness, of a relation to the other; a generative place where birth and rebirth can continuously prevail. Through these visual actions, the works embody a womb-space, a gendered space that reveals possibilities of multiple states of transition.

Saint Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective creates original works of art through a collaborative process. Through non-violent collective action, artists work with 16-24-year-old urban youth to create systemic social change. Story Stitchers collect local stories, reframe, and retell them through art, writing and performance to promote understanding, civic pride, intergenerational relationships, and literacy. The video WADE in the Media Room comments on the history, endurance, and fellowship of St. Louis’s African American citizens. The purpose for all Story Stitchers programs is to promote a better educated, more peaceful and caring region through storytelling. A core creative group of professional artists and African American youth generate original work through a unique form of “urban storytelling” that includes hip hop, spoken word, photography and videography and disseminate new works through public presentations and performances. The Collective’s body of work focuses on gun violence prevention and topics related to public health issues including education on safe practices during the Covid-19 pandemic. Story Stitchers’ programs are driven by the interests and concerns of low-income, black youth and as a result have focused on gun violence since 2014. Gun violence is a pressing public health crisis that consumes the attention of the engaged youth. Youth can work through their pain and loss and be a force multiplier, impacting families, schools and neighborhoods. Saint Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective piece WADE is a work from the multi-year project entitled, The WHY of MY City. The WHY of MY City captures and documents black history through written word and art and gives audiences insight into neighbors’ lives. (5:48 minutes, one-channel color video with sound)
