    Audubon and Beyond

    University of Missouri-St. Louis 1 University Dr. at Natural Bridge Rd. Normandy, MO

    Mondays-Thursdays, 7:30 a.m.-10:30 p.m., Saturdays, 8 a.m.-4 p.m., Sundays, 12-8 p.m. and Fridays, 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through June 15, 2017

    Among those of the ornithological persuasion, the St. Louis region is of prime interest because of our natural flyways. The Mississippi River underwrites that status; it's a superhighway for migrating birds. We have another feathered fact to boast about: While the renowned birdman John James Audubon was still alive, the St. Louis Mercantile Library acquired a rare reserved copy of his masterwork, Birds of America, from his family. This is tantamount to owning a Gutenberg Bible. Celebrate it with the exhibit Audubon and Beyond: Collecting Five Centuries of Natural History at the St. Louis Mercantile Library on the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus. The extensive exhibit incorporates sections relating to not only birds but also reptiles, mammals, fish, insects, humans, astronomy, geology, meteorology and more. Audubon and Beyond is open 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and noon to 8 p.m. Sunday (November 9 through June 2017). Admission is free.

    Arch Perspectives

    Missouri History Museum Lindell Blvd. and DeBaliviere Ave.

    Mondays, Wednesdays-Sundays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Tuesdays, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Continues through Jan. 24

    The Gateway Arch has become visual shorthand for St. Louis. It shows up in films, commercials, on signs, T-shirts, bags, postcards. But what does the Arch really mean to the region? It was designed to celebrate Thomas Jefferson and his dream of westward expansion, but the meanings of our civic symbols change as the people who live in its shadow also change. Arch Perspectives, the new exhibit at the Missouri History Museum, offers a look back at the birth of the Arch and what it was meant to symbolize through photographs and original documents. The exhibit includes a continuing series of forums for people to discuss their interpretation of the monument's meaning. Is it a promise unfulfilled, a reminder of past glories, or something else entirely? Arch Perspectives is open daily through Sunday, January 24. Admission is free.

    A Walk in St. Louis 1875

    Missouri History Museum Lindell Boulevard & DeBaliviere Avenue

    Mondays, Wednesdays-Sundays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Feb. 14

    Cartography is not considered a fine-art form, but it should be. Because of its association with practical utility and the accurate visual translation of purely physical information, cartography tends to get short shrift in aesthetic circles -- if indeed it gets any shrift at all. Such, perhaps, is the price of overvaluing the romantic abstract at the expense of the quotidian tangible. Regardless, give us beautiful maps to pore over any day -- especially, Compton & Dry's masterpiece of cartographic artistry: 1875's Pictorial St. Louis. This duo's staggering ambition was to draw every single home, building and street in St. Louis, all in super-accurate perspective. The new exhibit, A Walk in St. Louis 1875, employs this astounding pictorial map (enlarged for more visual bang) as a backdrop for a depiction of our city as it looked and felt in 1875. Photographs, artifacts, news pieces and assorted writings flesh out the compelling detail. The exhibition is open daily through February 14, 2016, at the Missouri History Museum. Admission is free.

  • February 1 | 8:00 - 10:00

    Argentina Andalucia: Two Tangos

    The Sheldon 3645 Washington Blvd.

    The St. Louis Cultural Flamenco Society presents the Anibal Diaz Dance Company performing a world premier of Argentina Andalucia: Two Tangos. Passion, sensuality, virtuosity and rivalry are elements to connecting two cultures in the same staging. Two Tangos - Argentine Tango and Flamenco Tango - come to the stage, with the most powerful expression of Anibal Diaz Dance Company who gives life to a New Vision through Dance, where passion and challenge dominate this presentation.

  • February 2 | 8 AM - 6 PM

    Harmony in 3

    Laumeier Sculpture Park 12580 Rott Rd. Sunset Hills, MO

    Tuesdays-Sundays, 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Continues through Feb. 14

    Harmony in 3, the new exhibition in Laumeier Sculpture Park's 2015 Kranzberg Exhibition Series, mows down preconceptions about dance, sculpture and groundskeeping. Video artist Zlatko Cosic and choreographer Ashley McQueen pay homage to the labor-intensive work that keeps Laumeier's 105 acres perfectly landscaped, while simultaneously celebrating the institution's extraordinary partnership with the St. Louis County Parks Department. The exhibition synthesizes a series of 2014 dance performances designed by McQueen in a short film by Cosic. Their collaboration features dancers Alexa Moor, Sarah Starkweather and Ellen Vierse as the ultimate mobile sculpture, their movements inspired by the precision choreography of the lawnmowers piloted by Don Gerling, Yvette Luedde and Tom Schweiss as they detail the park every week. The work remains on display through Sunday, February 14, 2016, and the gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday. Admission is free.

  • February 2 | 10 AM - 5 PM

    Atrium Gallery invites you to our upcoming solo exhibition of new work by nationally known landscape artist, Ellen Glasgow, "Connections - Land/Water."

    Philip Slein Gallery 4735 McPherson Ave.

    Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through March 12

    The Philip Slein Gallery is proud to present COLOR, an exhibition of the work of three painters from Minus Space who utilize color not only in the formalism of their work, but more deeply to create intensities of mood and emotion.  All three of these painters, GABRIELE EVERTZ, ROBERT SWAIN and SANFORD WURMFELD, share a passion for color, for geometry, and for precision, but the strength of the work is in the emotion their works create. Also showing in the Project Space is VANITAS, an exhibition of work by MATTHEW DELEGET, founder and director of Minus Space Gallery.

  • February 2 | 10 AM - 5 PM

    Minus Space: Color

    Philip Slein Gallery 4735 McPherson Ave.

    Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through March 12

    Brooklyn’s Minus Space gallery concentrates on reductive, abstract art. This show highlights the work of Gabriele Evertz, Robert Swain and Sanford Wurmfeld, three Minus Space painters whose work demonstrates color’s power as an energy and a force for drawing out emotions. All three painters also utilize a strong sense of geometry and precision, harnessing color’s power in lines and grids that veer off toward infinity.

  • February 2 | 6:30 - 8 PM

    Jody Williams on “What is Contemporary Botanical Art?”

    Foundry Art Centre 520 N. Main Center

    The Paintings of Sir Winston Churchill

    Washington University Kemper Art Museum 1 Brookings Dr. University City, MO

    Mondays, Wednesdays-Sundays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Feb. 14

    Sir Winston Churchill famously held England together during the Battle of Britain, but he was also a successful historian, an old soldier and perhaps the world's first motivational speaker. But his great love was painting, because he was doing it without the weight of a nation on his back. Churchill's oil paintings were his solace in peacetime and in war, but he always downplayed his talent. In fact he was a creditable draftsman, turning out landscapes that reveal a keen understanding of light and composition. The Paintings of Winston Churchill, a joint exhibition presented by the National Churchill Museum at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, and Washington University in St. Louis, showcase 47 of the British Bulldog's paintings to commemorate the 50th anniversary of his death. It's a show that will please historians and inspire amateur artists, and vice versa. The Paintings of Winston Churchill opens with a free reception from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, November 13. The show remains up through February 14, 2016, and the gallery is open every day except Monday.

  • February 3 | 7 - 9 PM

    Underneath the Lintel

    Jewish Community Center's Wool Studio Theatre 2 Millstone Campus Dr.

    Sundays, 2 & 7:30 p.m., Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Wednesdays, Thursdays, 7:30 p.m. Continues through Feb. 12

    A somewhat fussy and determined librarian explains to you her obsessive quest to uncover the secret behind an overdue library book in Glen Berger's Underneath the Lintel. The book in question is 113 years overdue, with an unclaimed dry-cleaning ticket as a bookmark. The librarian doggedly pursues a trail of love letters, receipts and tickets, connecting each one to the mysterious person who returned the book. But the deeper she gets in the mystery the more metaphysical she becomes, and you slowly realize she may be chasing a phantom of her own imagination. New Jewish Theatre presents Underneath the Lintel at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 and 7:30 p.m. Sunday (January 28 through February 12) at the Jewish Community Center's Wool Studio Theatre.

    Robert Knott

    Left Bank Books 399 N Euclid Ave.

    Cole and Hitch return in the gritty new installment of the bestselling series. Appaloosa, the hometown of Territorial Marshals Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch, continues to prosper, but there’s a new menace in town: a wealthy, handsome easterner—and the owner of Appaloosa’s new casino—Boston Bill Black. A series of murders sets Cole and Hitch on Boston Bill's trail, eventually taking them back to Appaloosa—where one woman in particular may, or may not, prove to be the apple of Boston Bill’s eye.

    CeramATTACK Group Exhibition

    Duane Reed Gallery 4729 McPherson Ave. St. Louis, MO

    Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Feb. 13

    With motivations beyond pure form and function, the selected artists take ceramics into an entirely new realm, fusing contemporary aesthetics with a traditional art form. The clay bodies act more as canvases for further creative exploration through a multidisciplinary approach. This new take is evident in the works of Kevin Snipes whose structures are complimented by his whimsical street art influenced figurative drawings, or Jonathan Mess who reclaims discarded and forgotten materials into formations that reference maps and natural geographical formations.

  • February 4 | 10 AM - 8 PM

    Kota: Digital Excavations in African Art

    Pulitzer Arts Foundation 3716 Washington Blvd. St. Louis, MO

    Wednesdays, Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Thursdays, Fridays, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. and Thursdays, Fridays, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Continues through March 19

    The Kota people are an ethnic group located in Gabon known primarily in the Western world for their magnificent guardian figures. Made of copper or brass, these figural sculptures represent not just the artistic and aesthetic prowess of their makers but the powerful — and secretive — religious rites of a mystical order. Belgian computer engineer Frederic Cloth designed a database that organizes key visual data to group the guardians and better understand their origins, and perhaps unlock some of their symbolic meanings. Kota: Digital Excavations in African Art, the new exhibition at the Pulitzer Arts Foundation, showcases more than 50 Kota reliquaries as well as providing visitors information about Cloth's database and methodology. Kotaopens with a free reception from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, October 16. The exhibition remains open through Saturday, March 19, 2016, and the Pulitzer is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. Admission is free.

    Creatures

    Art Saint Louis 1223 Pine St.

    Tuesdays-Fridays, 7 a.m.-5 p.m., Mondays, 7 a.m.-4 p.m. and Saturdays, 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Continues through Feb. 18

    This multimedia group exhibition features work that depicts creatures both real and imagined. Many artists took the theme as a challenge, reimagining organic forms in surprising ways. The rodent in Brent Becker’s Gestalt Mouse is hardly recognizable first, its hairless body lumpen and knurled and apparently held together by stray buckles and rivets. Closer examination reveals other animal faces hidden in the figure, a blobfish sitting atop a deer – or is that a dog? Justin Miller’s Steed is a biomechanical construct of World War II fighter plane scraps and organic materials.

  • February 4 | 8 PM

    Georama

    Loretto-Hilton Center 130 Edgar Rd.

    Tue. Feb. 2, 7 p.m., Feb. 3-5, 8 p.m. and Sat., Feb. 6, 4 & 8 p.m. Continues through Feb. 7

    John Banvard had great artistic ambition, channeling his fascination with the Mississippi River into a landscape painting that he claimed was three miles long. (Experts now believe it was at most a half-mile long, which is still impressive.) Banvard mounted what he called his "georama" on rollers like a scroll, and would unspool it slowly so audiences could see what a cruise down the Mississippi looked like. His vision made him the toast of the 1800s, but imitators threatened to push him out of the market he created. West Hyler and Matt Schatz turned the true story of an American original into the musical Georama, which gets its world premiere at the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis. A 600-foot-long georama was created especially for this production, which runs Tuesday through Sunday (January 23 through February 7) at the Loretto-Hilton Center. Tickets are $50 to $65.

  • February 4 | 12 - 5 PM

    Fear of a Blank Pancake

    White Flag Projects 4568 Manchester Ave.

    Tuesdays-Saturdays, 12-5 p.m. Continues through March 23

    This group exhibition showcases work by Kelly Akashi, Elizabeth Jaeger, Calvin Marcus, Anita Uddenberg and Charlie White, and runs the gamut from sculpture to video installation. White is a Los Angeles-based photographer and filmmaker who creates unnerving scenes that feature star people and otherworldly creatures interacting in curious ways. His 2013 photograph The Persuaders (from the series And Jeopardize the Integrity of the Hull) has a trio of menacing felt puppets coercing a disgusted-looking middle-aged woman on a Sesame Street-like set. Uddenberg uses styrofoam, glass fiber and aqua resin to create human forms, often female, that are contorted or compartmentalized so the focus is on the posterior. Her use of synthetic hair and contemporary clothes make her sculptures somehow less human upon closer examination, critiquing the dehumanizing effects of the male gaze and the hypersexualized way women are depicted in mass media.

    Currents 111: Steven and William Ladd

    Saint Louis Art Museum in Forest Park

    Fridays, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. and Tuesdays-Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Feb. 14

    St. Louis is a town steeped in nostalgia — which is just another way of saying "fond memories." Steven and William Ladd grew up here, engaged in the standard pursuits of youth sports and Cub Scouting. Those halcyon days inspired the duo's new exhibition, Currents 111: Steven and William Ladd — Scouts or Sports? The Ladds create their multimedia pieces as a pair (teamwork, just as both sports and Scouts taught them), combining paper, fiber, pigments and metal trinkets to make their paper landscapes. Their Cardinal Nation is a familiar red field studded with holes and pleasantly tactile rosacea of metal bits that add three-dimensional depth to the work. The layers of material mimic the way memories accrete in our mind, new piled on old in a steady growth of time's passage. The show opens Friday, October 23, in gallery 250 of the Saint Louis Art Museum in Forest Park. The exhibit remains up through Tuesday, February 14, 2016, and the museum is open Tuesday through Saturday. Admission is free. free admission

    St. Louis Art Museum in Forest Park

    Fridays, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. and Mondays-Thursdays, Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through July 17

    The Saint Louis Art Museum is constantly acquiring new pieces for its collection. In the past decade, more than 700 artworks have been added — A Decade of Collecting Prints, Drawings and Photographs features just 62 of them, but the quality can’t be beat. The worried woman in Dorothea Lange’s Migrant Mother is a familiar face thanks to its frequent use in publications, but now you can stand eye-to-eye with her. If you gaze on the technical perfection of Martin Schongauer’s fifteenth-century engraving The Nativity and find yourself craving more, you should make an appointment to visit the museum’s Study Room for Prints, Drawings and Photographs. More than 14,000 works are available for closer examination, and it costs nothing to view them.

    Blow-Up: Graphic Abstraction in 1960s Design

    Saint Louis Art Museum in Forest Park

    Tuesdays-Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Fridays, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Continues through March 20

    With an eye for the beautiful and a sense for the tough-to-replicate, St. Louis curators put together some of the most captivating exhibits. Such is the case with Blow-Up: Graphic Abstraction in 1960s Design, curated by Genny Cortinovis. The show celebrates the large-scale, abstract patterns in the fabrics, furnishing and fashions of the 1960s. Anyone with a love of style will drool (neatly) over the gorgeous Marimekko textiles, as well as Ettorre Sottsass Jr.'s red-and-white-striped Superboxwardrobe and Gaetano Pesce's UP 1 chair. Tony Vaccaro's photographs of a Scandinavian design festival sponsored by Famous-Barr in 1966 round out the exhibition. Blow-Up is on display in gallery 100 at the Saint Louis Art Museum in Forest Park through Sunday, March 20, 2016. The museum is open every day except Monday. Admission is free.

    CAM goes large for its first show of the year, with six artists and one collective all displaying work. Lisa Yuskavage: The Brood collects 25 years of figurative paintings to document the intellectual and stylistic development of the New York-based artist. Her defiant nudes and her seductive palette combine in a way that is unapologetically confrontational and feminine. The active sculptural works of Arcangelo Sassolino are all crafted to mimic something human, but do so in often terrifying ways. FIGURANTE is a sleekly lethal mouth of metal spikes and unthinkably powerful hydraulic jaws about to crush a knobby bone, still wet with blood and gobbets of flesh.

    Classical Music Open Stage

    Tavern of Fine Arts 313 Belt Ave. St. Louis, MO

    Second Monday of every month, 7:30 p.m.

    There are far too few venues for violinists, pianists and cellists to perform in public, outside of massive symphony orchestras. This creates quite the dilemma for amateur musicians who want to perform chamber music, or who simply prefer playing in a more intimate and less formal atmosphere. There's always the option to busk, of course, but that requires a thicker skin and a completely different wardrobe. Luckily, on the second Monday of each month the Tavern of Fine Arts hosts its Classical Music Open Stage: the beautiful and peculiar offspring of open-mic nights and classical concerts. Open Stage allows anyone with an instrument and an inclination to take the stage and metaphorical mic and play anything they'd like -- whether a famous baroque overture, a contemporary pop song or their own composition. Admission is free, and all ages and skills levels are welcome.

    Procedural Music With a Cultural Seed

    Pulitzer Arts Foundation 3716 Washington Blvd.

    Musician Phil Hayes will debut an original composition of procedural music inspired by the Kota reliquary guardian figures on view. Following a week of rapid prototyping with game developers-in-residence Rampant Interactive, Hayes's project will apply music theory and data-driven analysis to examine the creativity and range of the original artists. As different features and decorations of the sculptures are assigned to trigger corresponding sounds, each Kota generates a musical composition that expresses its individuality as well as relationship to a larger group. The resulting music will be played throughout the galleries, highlighting similarities and differences among the sculptures through sound.
