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.

 

Meet the Artist

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

Learning and having fun will go hand-in-hand this summer at St. Charles Community College’s College for All Kids (CfAK) camps. The College for All Kids summer camps are now enrolling for more than 100 academic enrichment and sports camps to be held June 5-Aug. 4, for children ages 5-14. STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) camps are an area of specialty.

From Woodworking to Coding, 3D Printing to Movie Making, Masterchef Cooking to Broadway Musical camps and LEGO Robotics Engineering to Creative Chemistry, kids and teens will find something to inspire and motivate them at SCC.

“Each camp explores a topic in depth,” said Amy Fitzwilliam, SCC program specialist. “It is important for us to keep pursuing students’ interests with fresh, new camps and returning favorites. We hope to be able to spark a student’s enthusiasm in new topics and open their eyes to new possibilities in learning and areas of interest.”

This year, CfAK has a co-sponsorship with St. Charles Parks and Recreation and Inventor Forge. Science rocks will be held at Quail Ridge Park and 3D Printing and Woodworking will be held at Inventor Forge at the EDC Building in Cottleville. App Attack, Advanced 3D Video Game with Unity, Python Programmers and Code Your Own Adventure camps will be held at St. Charles Community College – Dardenne Creek campus.

College for All Kids summer camps are committed to ensuring child safety. The camp provides a 10:1 safe ratio of students per staff member. All staff have background checks and attend training workshops. Camp assistants all have CPR, First-Aid and Epi-Pen training.

For a quick video of our program and to see a virtual catalog, visit www.stchas.edu/CFAK.

The camps will be held Monday-Friday, and costs range in price from $109-249. To register or learn more about camp schedules and pricing, visit www.stchas.edu/learnforlife or call 636-922-8233.

William Shearburn Gallery is pleased to present Dean Kessmann: Utilitarian Abstraction, from

June 22nd to June 27th, 2018 with an opening reception on Friday, June 22nd from 5 to 7 pm. The

exhibition explores the materiality of mass-produced products and consumer culture through representation

and re-contextualization of usually overlooked utilitarian printing marks on package

design. Through a process of high-resolution scanning and digitizing that retains imperfections

such as glue, tears, and other blemishes of packaging, Kessmann points viewers to reflect on the

messy materiality of consumer products in a digital age. Kessmann simultaneously asks us to

consider the relationship between consumer driven popular culture and abstraction in high art

by enlarging, reprinting, and presenting these images within an art context.

Dean Kessmann lives and works in Washington DC. He has had one-person exhibitions at

numerous institutions across the country including Furthermore, Washington, DC, Orlando

Museum of Art, Orlando, FL, Conner Contemporary Art, Washington, DC, Humanity Center

Galleries, California State University, Chico, CA, White Flag Projects, St. Louis, MO, Regina

Gouger Miller Gallery, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, School 33 Art Center,

Baltimore, MD, and the Forum for Contemporary Art, St. Louis, MO.

Kessmann has also received numerous Artist Fellowship Grant Awards from the DC

Commission on the Arts and Humanities, as well as a Franz and Virginia Bader Fund

Grant. He has been a semi-finalist for the Sondheim Prize and has won awards from The

Trawick Prize. In 2009 he was an artist-in-residence at Light Work in Syracuse,

NY. Additionally, many important institutions have collected his work, such as the Hirshhorn

Museum and Sculpture Garden, Baltimore Museum of Art, Walker Art Center, The Phillips

Collection, Museum of Contemporary Photography, Bowdoin College Museum of Art,

Orlando Museum of Art, Light Work, and Museum of Contemporary Religious Art, among

others.

Kessmann is an Associate Professor of Photography at The George Washington University,

where he teaches at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
