The Bonsack Gallery opens Art Marks from Minnesota and Montana to the Confluence: Watershed Cairns by Libby Reuter and Joshua Rowan with a reception on Friday, February 22 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. 

Artists Reuter and Rowan have collaborated since 2011 on a project they call Watershed Cairns — large-scale color photographs of glass sculptures placed in watersheds throughout the Mississippi-Missouri river basin. Reuter, a sculptor and installation artist, creates reliquary-inspired glass “cairns” constructed from household or antique glass; each piece is made in response to a specific site. Because the cairns are too delicate to keep in place, Rowan photographs them to record their presence in the landscape. The artists display most photographs on watershedcairns.com, along with a short description and GPS coordinates, so viewers may visit the sites themselves and note changes in the landscape and the rivers over time. The work also appears in galleries and museums, with many cairns displayed with their corresponding photograph. 

So far, Reuter and Rowan have traveled to more than 300 locations in the Missouri-Mississippi basin. Their project aims to “mark the watersheds metaphorically as fragile, beautiful, and deeply connected to everyday life,” and to spark community discussions around water. The artists’ current series focuses on Mississippi River basin’s water wealth: the river provides drinking water for 50 million people and irrigates 90 percent of the United States’ agricultural exports. 

The exhibit runs through April 10. 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.

The traditional landscape painting often contains a horizon line, recognizable landforms, and an idealized representation of Nature. Looking deeper, the historic use of the landscape mirrors the inner-state of that society's relationship to the political, religious, economic, and natural world around it. "Layered Place" invites viewers to reevaluate their definition of landscape, and consider the multiple "layers" of the multi-faceted modern landscape. This group exhibit delves into humanity's tumultuous relationship with Nature, visual metaphors for Place, social and cultural identity, family heritage, and way-finding. 

The exhibition includes work by St. Louis-based artists Jenna Bauer, Meghan Grubb, Song Park, Mandy Pedigo, Allana Ross, John Sarra, and Jon Young, and is curated by Charis Norell.

The exhibition will be up FEBRUARY 9 - APRIL 30

GALLERY HOURS ARE WEEKDAYS FROM 9AM - 6PM

Showcasing photographers who use 19th and early 20th century processes to comment on contemporary issues and subjects, the exhibit highlights how these antique methods of artistic expression can still have powerful validity in today's world. Despite, or perhaps because of, the readiness, ease and ubiquity of photography in the 21st century, there has been a movement of photographic artists who have turned to early processes like the tintype, ambrotype and daguerreotype to delineate their subjects, imbuing their work with a beauty and material quality not found in the photos made with social media and instant filters. The exhibition will include work by David Emitt Adams, Binh Danh, Jill Enfield, Mark Katzman, Annie Lopez, Barbara McDonnell, Eric Omori, Keliy Anderson Staley and Will Wilson.

Born in 1901, Wallace Herndon Smith was a traditional painter who absorbed the visual language of artists like Pierre Bonnard, Henri Matisse and Edward Hopper. In the late 1930s, his work gained attention from important American artists like Hopper, Walt Kuhn and Peggy Bacon. He traveled extensively to Europe, Mexico and America's East Coast, and had a summer residence and studio in Harbor Springs, Michigan, subjects of which are found in several works in the exhibit. His works have been exhibited widely including in New York at the Museum of Modern Art and in Philadelphia, St. Louis and many other cities.

This exhibit showcases the talents of students from Wentzville School District High Schools who, in their curriculum, study the expression of identity. Humanity shares a common characteristic–the desire to be recognized by others. One common way we gain recognition is through the individual pursuit of originality. The works in the exhibition aim to convey a sense of how we identify, justly or not, one another's individuality based on the experiences of living in a diverse society.

Young People’s Theatre is excited to share their rendition of this popular musical. 

“Newsies” the Musical was originally produced for Broadway by Disney Theatrical Productions and is based on the Disney film written by Bob Tzudiker and Noni White. The musical was written by Harvey Fierstein, with lyrics by Jack Feldman and music by Alan Menken. Orchestrations by Danny Troob, incidental music and vocal arrangements by Michael Kossarin, and dance arrangements by Mark Hummel.

“Newsies” is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).

This rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged “newsies,” is a feel-good musical that speaks to us all. When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys' expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions. This Disney film-turned-Tony-winning-Broadway hit inspires everyone to fight for what is right and to seize the day! Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message that is perfect for the whole family.
