Enjoy an evening of art, music, and culture in the Grand Center Arts District the First Friday of every month. At CAM, staff members will give you an illuminating exhibition tour. Stop at the bar, hear the sounds of DJ Crim Dolla Cray, and meet friends and make new ones.
To view magnificent scenery this summer you only need to travel to OA Art Gallery.
OA Gallery invites you to join us in a stroll through an expansive display of spectacular landscapes from intimate close-ups to grand vistas. This contemporary landscape art exhibition as seen through the eyes of talented, award-winning artists includes a broad spectrum of mediums from oil, acrylic, pastels, watercolor, oil/cold wax, mixed medium and photography.
Opening reception is Friday, June 2, 2017 from 6-9 pm. Come by for light refreshments and to meet the artists and get the stories behind their memorable works of art.
Dragondeer is a psych-blues band from Denver, Colorado whose singular, reverb drenched take on old school blues and soul coupled with inspired improvisation has the band making fans in roots circles as well as indie clubs across Colorado and beyond.
Dragondeer recently recorded with producer Mark Howard (Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Tom Waits, Anders Osborne) in California’s storied Topanga Canyon and will be releasing music from those sessions throughout 2017.
You may know Allison Sissom as one of the hardworking artists behind The Moon Zine. Collage plays a major role in that project (they decorate each issue by hand.) Now you can see Sissom's original collage pieces in her new solo show "Dreamscapes" at South City Art Supply, opening on June 2nd.
Sissom's "Dreamscapes" draw from charming, familiar material like children's books and nature magazines. But don’t mistake sweet for shallow! She painstakingly intertwines imposing natural spaces with intimate human moments. The effect is a moving contradiction between our powerlessness in the face of a vast universe and the certain meaning in a kind gesture.
Allison has promised 50 pieces for this show, so we expect our 2nd floor to be thoroughly transformed! Don’t miss this opportunity to speak with the artist and dream along with her. We’ll have a dog or two, all the usual refreshments, and a few hours to relax into.
The Church of Scientology had actress Cathy Schenkelberg for 14 years; it took another 5 years to leave them behind in the face of harassing phone calls, midnight knocks on her door by “outreach” staffers, an expensive custody battle and social rejection, and the hacking websites of venues she is performing. She has the courage to tell us this hilarious and horrifying story under the direction of Shirley Anderson with lighting design by Steve Miller, sound design by Victoria Deiorio and graphic design by Brett Newton.
From attire, to ticket prices, to entertainment, and everything in between: every detail of the Be You Ball is dedicated to diversity, equity, and progress, and the event is designed to build infrastructure for training future community leaders.
Performers for the evening vary in nature and provide unique perspectives on the party experience. The lineup includes danceable tunes from DJ Whiz and Beep Beep Boop Boop, immersive theater from STL Improv Anywhere, Top Spinning from Hiroshi Tada, emerging drag queen Condé Nasty, a Silent Auction, Photo Booth, and more surprise guests. Drinks (beer and wine) and light snacks are included in ticket prices. Because of the nature of the Be You Ball, all attendees must be 21 or older.
Wide variety of Jazz including Swing, Latin, Blues, and Ballads
Shakespeare Festival St. Louis’ production of The Winter’s Tale will be performed nightly June 2-25 (excluding Tuesdays) at Shakespeare Glen in Forest Park. Preview performances are scheduled May 31 and June 1. This is the festival’s 17th season of producing free performances of Shakespeare’s work in an outdoor setting.
Written in approximately 1610, the play is considered to be one of a group of Shakespeare’s plays that are vaguely defined by their tragic undertones and simultaneous use of straightforward comic situations. The play contains Shakespeare’s most famous and challenging stage direction: ‘Exit, pursued by a bear” in Act 3, Scene 3. Whether the Bard meant to use a real bear or an actor in a costume is a directive that has been debated for centuries. Either way, the pursued (Antigonus) and the bear are not seen again after their exit.
As in previous years, the pre-show festivities will include a nightly Green Show at 6:30 p.m., backstage tours before each performance, and a craft area for kids, among other activities. Seating for The Winter’s Tale is available on the open lawn. Rental chairs are also available. Please visit www.sfstl.com, or call 314-531-9800, for additional information.
