'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.
By placing each piece on a plinth like those used for Greco-Roman and neoclassical sculptures, Duhigg asks the viewer to direct their gaze upward, and to question what they place on a pedestal. In addition to cast metal, Duhigg creates sculptures using wood, steel fabrication and modeling.
Thad Duhigg is currently professor of sculpture in the department of art and design at Southern Illinois University - Edwardsville. He received an MFA from Syracuse University and a BFA from Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Duhigg has exhibited at Laumeier Sculpture Park, the Rockford Art Museum, the Amarillo Museum of Art, the Huntsville Museum of Art and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. He received a Fulbright Senior Scholar Award to Budapest, Hungary. For more information, visit thadduhigg.com.
The Bonsack Gallery is a not-for-profit educational gallery on the campus of John Burroughs School. Regular gallery hours are 8 am to 6:30 pm, Monday through Friday. For more information, contact Donya Allison (Fine Arts) at 314/993-4045, ext. 229 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Out of Order" on Display at St. Louis Artist Guild
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), December 8, 2019 - The title of this exhibit, "Out of Order", on display at the St. Louis Artist Guild is inspired by the poem "An Idea of Order at Key West" by Wallace Stevens.
Artists have employed mathematics to bring visual harmony to our surroundings with tools such as the golden ratio, perspective and grid systems. From the intricate symmetry of Islamic tile design, to the measured drawings of Agnes Martin, mathematics can create visual harmony and give a sense of order to what appears to be chaotic.
An Idea of Order seeks work in all media that employs systematic, structure, number, pattern, and shape as an inherent component of expression. Artworks that are concerned with the logic of shape, quantity and arrangement as organizing principles are appropriate, as well as works that are related to sequence, timing and movement.
List of Juried Artists: Mitchell Anolik, Hannah Barnes, Eldon Benz, Jill Beyder, Robert Bolla, Marilynne Bradley, Bill Brookover, Aimee Clinger, Jerry Cox, Stephen Da Lay, James Daniels, Miguel de Aguero, Elizabeth Desrosiers, Kevin Desrosiers, Jonathan Frey, Damon Gaspar, Nancy Grimes, John Hardecke, Jessica Hentoff, Holland Hopson, Ruth Kolker, Andrew Leicht, Ann Mays, Roger McCarthy, Beth McCoy, Albert Natian, Larry Page, Alex Paradowski, Bradley Phillips, John Puffer, Bob Rickert, Ashleigh Robb, Marceline Saphian, Douglas Simes, Mike Sonnichsen, Taro Takizawa, Darius Thompson, Sergei Tsvetkov, Charles Turnell, Andy Van Der Tuin, Maggie Van Emden, Erin Wheary, Carmile Zaino, Susan Zale, Maggie Zografakis
Exhibit closes Saturday, December 28, 2019, 4pm. St. Louis Artist Guild is located at 12 North Jackson Ave., Clayton, MO 63105. Call 314-727-6266 for more information.

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.
