Children's Gallery: Sensation (Missouri School for the Blind and Central Institute for the Deaf)

Sensation
Sensation

Sensation is an exhibit of work by the talented students at Central Insitute for the Deaf and Missouri School for the Blind. Originally meant to be an exhibit about the senses of vision and touch, this turns out to be a celebration of all the senses—from the visual dazzle of glitter and translucent colors of paintings on plexi-glas, to the soft rattling sounds of mobiles moving with the air current, to the sense of texture of the landscapes and shaving cream drawings...and who doesn't smell and taste the waffles, tamales, french fries, and other charming culinary delights?

One sense on display here is not in our normal vocabulary of what we learn in science class—the sense of play. These students had fun and it shows. Like a lot of children's work, it reminds us of why we make art in the first place—to dig into materials and experiment, to ask "what if?" and then simply to try it. »Read more...

Oh! You Pretty Things: Indie Music and Design

Jeremy Kannapell
Jason Potter

Musical culture is defined not just by sound, but its accompanying visual vocabulary, found on posters, T-shirts, and record packaging. This exhibition is an exploration of graphic design in the St. Louis indie music scene, with an emphasis on the D.I.Y (do-it-yourself) aesthetic and philosophy. These artists and designers use techniques such as collage, silkscreen, and hand-drawn elements to create one-of-a-kind works that both stand on their own as visual expressions and work in synthesis with musical sounds and performances. Participating artists include Sleepy Kitty, Jason Potter, and Jeremy Kannapell. Organized by Adrian Aquilino.

Opening: 
Friday, January 20, 2012 - 6:00pm - 9:00pm
Exhibition Dates: 
Friday, January 20, 2012 - Saturday, March 17, 2012

Jurors' Statement

The desire to visually express music seems inevitable. I've always found myself drawn to musicians who draw, paint, sculpt, make videos, or take pictures, and visual artists who make beats, play instruments, rap or sing. »Read more...

Solo Gallery: The Austerity Plan

Robert Goetz

The St. Louis Artists' Guild's Solo Gallery presents The Austerity Plan, an exhibition of new work by Robert Goetz, our Fall 2011 Keyholder Artist-in-Residence (Printmaking)

Artist's Statement

The Austerity Plan takes its name from a song I penned in response to a small art review segment Jessica Baran wrote regarding a piece I have at the Sheldon. Two words from the write up, austerity and nostalgia, form the nucleus of the song. At first I found them to be a negative, but I do feel these words describe the work in a sense and have since changed my opinion about their face value. Nostalgia is the keeper of self worth and Austerity primes animal logic. From the song intrepretation of The Austerity Plan I began to cull images from my creative past. »Read more...
