ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), November 5, 2017 - The Bonsack Gallery at John Burroughs School will feature "Habitat," an exhibit of mixed media work by Brigham Dimick, from Friday, November 10, 2017, through Wednesday, January 3, 2018. A free Opening Reception will be held, Friday, November 10, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.
Dimick, a professor at St. Louis University Edwardsville (SIUE), worked every weekday at the St. Louis Zoo while on sabbatical leave during the spring semester of 2016. He focused on habitats of animals that are endangered or severely threatened, bringing to light a bizarre mix of common and cross purposes at the zoo - zookeepers who undertake the serious work of species preservation and visitors who come to the zoo for entertainment.
Dimick earned his bachelor's degree in painting from Temple University and his master's degree in painting from the School of Fine Arts at Indiana University. He has received Individual Artist Fellowships from the states of Georgia and Pennsylvania and a professional development grant from Illinois, as well as many generous grants through SIUE. His drawings are in the corporate collections of Morgan Stanley and Fish & Richardson, in the Dishman Art Museum, and in the collections of Emporia State and St. Ambrose University.
The Bonsack Gallery is a not-for-profit educational gallery on the campus of John Burroughs School, 755 South Price Road, St. Louis, MO, 63124. Regular gallery hours are 8 am to 5 pm, weekdays. The exhibit is free to the public. For more information, contact Donya Allison (Fine Arts) at 314/993-4045, ext. 229, firstname.lastname@example.org.

ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), October 22, 2017 - The solar system is full of mysteries, and artist Eric Woods, owner and founder of The Firecracker Press, let his creativity soar into space with the creation of The Solar System Series, now on display at St. Louis Lambert International Airport. The exhibition will be on display near A Gates entrance/exit at Terminal 1 through next year.
This intricate, multi-paneled work is letterpress printed on paper, from hand-carved woodcuts and other recycled materials like cardboard and vinyl siding. Each panel was printed individually over the course of several months, then pieced together and mounted on wood. Together, the panels form a colorful and show-stopping image that is already getting lots of attention from travelers. Hidden in the piece are all sorts of "Easter eggs" for the viewer to find, such a Starship Enterprise and a lost satellite, among others.
The Solar System Series exhibition is part of the Lambert Art & Culture Program's temporary exhibition program. The program is supported by the Regional Arts Commission.
The Lambert Art & Culture Program is led by the seven-member Airport Art Advisory Committee. Current members are Lisa Cakmak, Associate Curator of Ancient Art at Saint Louis Art Museum; Ellen Gale, Executive Director Clayton Chamber of Commerce; Shelley Hagan, Wells Fargo Curator Corporate Art; Leslie Markle, Curator of Public Art, Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum; Kiku Obata, Founding Principal of Kiku Obata & Co.; Roseann Weiss, Director of Community and Public Arts for the St. Louis Regional Arts Commission; and Carlos Zamora, Creative Director at Express Scripts.
The mission of the Lambert Art and Culture Program is to create a visually outstanding impression of St. Louis Lambert International Airport, generate community pride, and ensure that art at STL continues to complement and build upon the airport's rich visual legacy. The program aims to highlight the St. Louis region's unique art and culture, while also showcasing national and international works, focusing on both visual and performing arts.

Laumeier Presents "Yvonne Osei: Tailored Landscapes" for 2017 Kranzberg Exhibition Series
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), October 12, - Laumeier Sculpture Park will present Yvonne Osei: Tailored Landscapes for the 2017 Kranzberg Exhibition Series, November 4, 2017 - March 4, 2018, in the Adam Aronson Fine Arts Center Whitaker Foundation Gallery.
A free Opening Reception will take place Saturday, November 4, 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. The exhibition is curated by Dana Turkovic; the series is supported by Nancy and Ken Kranzberg.
Conceptual artist Yvonne Osei creates a large-scale photo installation to occupy the breadth and width of the indoor gallery, constructing an environment where textiles create landscape
Inspired by both the cultural and physical landscapes of the Park, Osei weaves design motifs from her home country of Ghana into her photographic and videographic documentation of the Park to create new and unique patterns for Laumeier. Using her textural understanding of fashion design to mold and manipulate an adhesive fabric, Osei creates an environment that uses the architecture of the gallery as figure and form. With Tailored Landscapes, Osei continues her inquiry utilizing the import of textiles as a medium to celebrate diversity in culture and in nature.
"Tailored Landscapes contextualizes textiles as physical and metaphorical landscapes," said Osei. "Throughout the past year, I have photographed various sites within the Park to capture visitors' interactions and use of the space. For this exhibition, I use the photographs to create a collection of vibrantly patterned, textile designs that bear a strong resemblance to traditional West African fabrics commonly worn in my home country of Ghana."
Laumeier Sculpture Park is free and open daily from 8:00 a.m. - 30 minutes past sunset. The Adam Aronson Fine Arts Center is open daily from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
