'In a Time of Greatness' at Bonsack Gallery

ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), December 8, 2019 - The Bonsack Gallery has opened In a Time of Greatness, a solo show by Thad Duhigg through February 14.
The word "landscape," is nearly synonymous with painting. Thad Duhigg subverts this tradition by creating landscape sculptures. Cast in bronze, they reference the pastoral in art as well as classical statuary found in and around museums, parks and public buildings.
However, Duhigg's subject matter - including immigration, mass surveillance, ecological collapse and terrorism - is completely contemporary. Devoid of human figures, each landscape is a staging ground for disasters large and small. The tip of a tornado touches down to earth; agricultural chemicals seep into the soil between corn stalks; an empty raft, much like the ones used by Syrian refugees escaping war, swirls in the ocean. Duhigg's use of bronze also evokes the military use of the metal, including armor, cannons, helmets and spears.
Inaugural Exhibition, "Lesley Dilll:Voice" Opens at New Atrium Gallery

ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), December 8, 2019 - Atrium Gallery is hosting a solo show by national artist, Lesley Dill, for its inaugural exhibition at the new gallery in The Dorchester, 665 S. Skinker Blvd.
"Lesley Dill: Voice" features an extensive group of works involving the use of language intimately mingled with drawings and constructions bringing strong force to the intellectual threads of Dill's work. Her deep rooted interest in literature and connections to her New England legacy and Puritan intellectuals and their writings, mixed with later influences from figures such as Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Faulkner, and Kafka permeate her works. "Poem Dress of Circulation" is a typical expression for her, with words spilling down the delicate object including thread and chiri kozo paper.
Dill has been known as a scholar from childhood, majoring in English, and later receiving an MA from Smith and an MFA from Maryland Institute of Art. She has developed a very expressive practice of creating art objects that are commanding great respect and value, exhibiting nationally and internationally. These are being collected by numerous major museums, including The Metropolitan Museum and The Museum of Modern Art, NY, The National Gallery of Art, Library of Congress, and National Gallery of Women in the Arts, Washington DC.
The imagery is mostly realized in clothed figures or articles of clothing and she explains "Clothing houses the house that houses the soul." Her expressions are deep indeed, and she speaks as most artists desire, to universal understandings. This special exhibition celebrates the Opening of the new gallery space for 33 year old Atrium Gallery and marks a new path for this St. Louis gallery as it presents works that seek to move viewers with aesthetics and message, to an enriching experience with art.
