The John Burroughs School fine arts faculty, all of whom are practicing artists, will exhibit their work in a mixed media show in the Bonsack Gallery from August 24 through October 9. The opening reception is from 5:30 to 7:30 pm on Friday, August 24 in the gallery. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

Ashley Oates will exhibit drawings and photograms (contact prints made using an early “camera-less” photography technique) from a new series titled The Hürtgen Forest, Rabbit Edgerton, and the stories we tell. 

 

Mike Gesiakowski will show recent sculptural pieces that investigate the process of physical and cognitive degradation by using the construct of architecture to question our perceptions of memory. 

 

Jessica Lynn Hunt will show new 3-D pieces on the theme of the domestic, created with materials including chicken wire, polyester stuffing and Kozo rice paper. 

 

Andrew Newman will exhibit black and white photographs from his cloud series, which plays with the ideas of impermanence and how we perceive clouds based on who we are and what we have seen.

Israeli born, St. Louis-based artist Edo Rosenblith will guide COCA visitors of all ages in creating a site-specific mural, blurring the distinction between artist and audience. Inspired by Rosenblith’s signature black and white wall drawings, the mural will reflect the thoughts, ideas, opinions and expectations expressed through collective visual impressions on COCA’s Millstone Gallery walls. Let Me Help You Make A Mural serves as a visual call and response that evolves over time, where the audience is invited to join the artist in creating a mural. The exhibition marks Rosenblith’s first time-based and community-collaborative work.

 

Curated by Yvonne Osei, Curator in Residence at COCA, the intention of this exhibition is to dissolve the boundaries between the artist’s private studio and the gallery space, inviting the public to become active participants in both the production and consumption of art.

Catch Edo Rosenblith at COCA on the following dates:

 

COCA Community Open House: Saturday, June 9, 2018, 11am – 1pm

Drawing Marathon: Saturday, July 14, 2018, 2-4pm

Housed in a beautifully restored 1896 building, the museum features an extensive collection of telephones manufactured from the early 1900s through the 2000s, hundreds of pieces of telephone-related equipment and memorabilia and military telephones from WWII through the Vietnam War.  It is located in the historic Jefferson Barracks Park, a 15 minute drive south of downtown St. Louis.

 

The self-guided, accessible museum has many hands-on, how-things-work displays.  The displays were created to inspire an interest in engineering and history.
