ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com) - The Duane Reed Gallery will host new works by Victor Wang, Bonnie Seeman and Sam Chung, in an exhibit opening with a Reception, May 10, 2019.
Victor Wang explained his work in a statement, "My path through life has been adventurous, exciting, and dream-like. My experience of settling into America in search of better opportunities has been both challenging and inspiring. I use the human face as a vehicle to paint human experiences - worry and wonder, sadness and pleasure - which reflect the emotional stage directly tied to my immigration experiences."
Bonnie Seeman grew up in Miami, Florida with a propensity towards anatomy illustration and the dazzling colors and rich foliage of the Miami landscape. Developing her technique with porcelain and glass, Seeman channeled her inspirations; resulting in vessels that are both beautiful and macabre. Combinations of muscular and skeletal anatomy and plant forms are the makeup of these sculptural utilitarian vessels. Instead of dwelling on dying, Seeman's palpable forms culminate in an acute awareness and awe toward life, renewal, nature, and vitality.
Sam Chung received his MFA from Arizona State University and his BA degree from St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota. Between his undergraduate and graduate programs, he worked as a special post-bac student at the University of Minnesota. He taught at Northern Michigan University from 1998-2007 and is now teaching at Arizona State University in Tempe where he is an associate professor of ceramics.
The exhibit runs through June 22 at the Duane Reed Gallery, loacted at 4729 McPherson Ave in the Central West End. Call 314-361-4102 for more information and hours.
St. Louis Artists' Guild Exhibition Features Its Members
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), April 27, 2019 - The St. Louis Artists Guild is hosting a juried, all media, all content exhibit for its members, through June 1, 2019.
Juror Robert Powell founder and Executive Director of Portfolio Gallery and Educational Center has curated an excellent exhibition featuring a diverse range of paintings, drawings, photographs, prints, sculptures, fiber works, and mixed media.
Powell brought Portfolio to life in 1989. Ten years later, he was one of only 19
non-profit leaders selected nationwide to become a Fellow in the first
class of The Denali Initiative, which provided training over three years
to develop "social entrepreneurs." The Initiative emphasized providing
community services in exchange for dollars, rather than relying entirely on the community to support a cultural function. As an artist, he is a recognized sculptor whose works are in the permanent collections of Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art and the Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, Kansas. In 2008, he was selected to design an ornament for the White House Christmas Tree in celebration of the "Red, White and Blue" Christmas holiday.
List of Juried Artists: Marianne Baer, Richard Battram, Robert Bolla, Louetta A. Buechler, Diane Carder, Steven Clayton, Jo Jasper Dean, Edgar Eslinger, Andrea Hughes, Tim Judge, Mike LaRose, Adam Long, Ron McIlvain, Nina Miller, Luisa Otero Prada, Alex Paradowski, Adrienne Patel, Cindy Polette, Charlotte Rennard, Judith Repke, Marilyn L. Robinson, James Scheller, John Schnellmann, Judith Shaw, Tom Sontag, Gary Tetley, Carl Valle, Ron Vivod, Margaret von Kaenel, Jerry Walters, Madonna Watermon, Ned Watson, Chelsie Wilson and Linda Wright.
Solo Exhibitions in the Curated Gallery
In addition to the juried exhibition, the St. Louis Artists' Guild will host two solo exhibitions featuring work from longtime STLAG members Joanne Stremsterfer and Marilynne Bradley.
Marilynne Bradley's curiosity of the world around her is evident in her paintings. Architectural structures compete with crowds of outdoor activity producing an energetic feeling of life in the streets and the cafés. Each scene comes to life in a burst of excitement and drama. The relationship between glowing light and dark patterns creates a variety of moods.
Joanne Stremsterfer has loved to draw for many years, but eventually, she
started experimenting with various surfaces upon which she would use charcoal
and pastels. Gradually the surface experiments became the primary focus of her drawings, first using monotypes and then using a solar plate, silkscreen, collage, relief, and etchings. Further development of these techniques eventually became the vehicle for personal expression. She continues to push and expand these experiments to create personal expression.
