Oliver Lee Jackson is known for creating complex and layered images in which figurative elements—or what he calls “paint people”—emerge from abstract fields of vibrant color. Jackson’s practice is informed by a deep understanding of global art history—from early modern European painting to African art. Yet his works do not aim to elevate a single message, narrative, or meaning. Rather, the works serve as an open invitation to slow and close looking, encouraging viewers to stake emotional claim on the paintings and not wait for instructions on what to see.

Damon Davis’s All Hands On Deck is a powerful artwork that addresses social justice and the call for change. He conceived the original photographs of hands held up high during the months-long protests after Michael Brown Jr. was shot and killed in Ferguson in August 2014. Recalling the protestors’ chant “Hands up don’t shoot” that was echoed throughout the protests—they were photographed with their “hands up.” That signal of surrender, however, is transformed in Davis’s photographs into one of resistance, fortitude, and community. This free exhibition will be on view through March 22, 2022.

St. Louis–based artist Jess T. Dugan is known for their color photographs that explore the power of identity, desire, and connection. In Currents 120: Jess T. Dugan, the Museum presents a selection of 20 recent works—portraits, self-portraits, and still lifes—many of which were created specifically for this exhibition. Within a framework of queer and nonbinary experience and from an actively constructed sense of masculinity, Dugan’s portraits examine intersections between individual identity and the search for intimate connection with others.

On Thursday, December 2 at 7 pm, Chabad of Chesterfield will host a Chanukah ladies night out titled: Menorahs and Martinis. Participants will have the opportunity to design their very own granite menorah while enjoying a Chanukah themed martini bar and gourmet Chanukah treats. The event promises to be an opportunity for local women to rejuvenate and connect.

This year the holiday of Chanukah falls out on the evening of November 28th and continues through the evening of Monday, December 6. Chanukah is the Jewish eight-day, wintertime “festival of lights,” celebrated with a nightly menorah lighting, special prayers and fried foods.The Hebrew word Chanukah means “dedication,” and is thus named because it celebrates the rededication of the Holy Temple. Also spelled Hanukkah (or variations of that spelling), the Hebrew word is actually pronounced with a guttural, “kh” sound, kha-nu-kah, not tcha-new-kah.

“The holiday Chanukah is all about letting your spark shine”, said Chanala Rubenfeld, co-director of Chabad of Chesterfield. “Each one of us has a special and unique purpose, talents, skills and the ability to make a difference in the world around us by adding your light to the world. TOGETHER we can ILLUMINATE the world!!” 

Suggested donation: $36 rsvp: www.ChabadOfChesterfield.com/chaicircle. For more information email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 636.778.4000
