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 11th Annual Robert Classic French Film Festival — presented by TV5MONDE and produced by Cinema St. Louis — celebrates St. Louis’ Gallic heritage and France’s cinematic legacy. The featured films span the decades from the 1930s through the 1990s, offering a revealing overview of French cinema.

The fest annually includes significant restorations, and this year features seven such works: Pierre Schoendoerffer “The 317th Platoon,” Marcel Pagnol’s “The Baker’s Wife,” Olivier Assayas’ “Cold Water,” Jacques Becker’s “The Hole,” Jacques Rivette’s “The Nun,” Agnés Varda’s “One Sings, the Other Doesn’t,” and Diane Kurys’ “Peppermint Soda.”

The schedule is rounded out by Robert Bresson’s final film, “L’argent,” and two 1969 films celebrating their 50th anniversaries: Luis Buñuel’s “The Milky Way” and Eric Rohmer’s “My Night at Maud’s.”

Every program features introductions and discussions by film or French scholars and critics. The discussions will place the works in the contexts of both film and French history and provide close analyses.

All films are in French with English subtitles. Tickets for all shows are on sale now through Brown Paper Tickets.

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.

Left Bank Books welcomes Washington University alumnus Andrew Ridker, who will sign and discuss his debut novel, "The Altruists"!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "The Altruists" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line. 

Arthur Alter is in trouble. A middling professor at a Midwestern college, he can’t afford his mortgage, he’s exasperated his much-younger girlfriend, and his kids won’t speak to him. Those children are Ethan, an anxious recluse living off his mother’s money on a choice plot of Brooklyn real estate; and Maggie, a would-be do-gooder trying to fashion herself a noble life of self-imposed poverty. On the verge of losing the family home, Arthur invites his children back to St. Louis under the guise of a reconciliation. But in doing so, he unwittingly unleashes a Pandora’s box of age-old resentments and long-buried memories—memories that orbit Francine, the matriarch whose life may hold the key to keeping them together.
