Opening Reception:  May 3rd. 6 to 10pm

Hoffmann LaChance Contemporary is pleased to present Jenna Bauer’s new series of paintings, The Respite Sequence. 

Bauer's paintings are pathways into light-filled, bucolic landscapes.  From a distance, the landscapes appear calm and inviting. However, upon closer inspection, the viewer is met with a flurry of countless intersecting arcs that drag the pigment endlessly throughout the surface of each painting. The paintings are complicated, and, perhaps, not as inviting as they first seemed.  

Bauer creates connections between elements of visual art and life: the widely varied responsibilities of our collective to-do lists.  

Bauer, a multidisciplinary artist, maintains a studio practice of painting, printmaking, drawing, and social sculpture, extending this work into various arenas of the community through teaching, performing and developing arts educational curricula and programming.  

She has maintained studios in Hell’s Kitchen, the Hudson River Valley, and her hometown: Saint Louis.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m. New York Times bestselling fiction writer Mary Kay Andrews presents a new novel full of wit, heart and charm. Drue Campbell’s life is adrift. Out of a job and down on her luck, life doesn’t seem to be getting better when her estranged father shows up at her mother’s funeral with his new wife—Drue’s 8th grade frenemy, Wendy. Things start to look up when she learns of her inheritance—her grandparents’ beach bungalow in the sleepy town of Sunset Beach. But when a suspicious death at a nearby resort exposes corruption that may involve her father, one thing is for sure at Sunset Beach: there’s a storm on the horizon.

Written by Tasha Gordon-Solmon. A play that mines disconnections. After Adam and Nicole’s wedding culminates in an awkwardly timed fatality, the reception spins into an increasingly strange evening that leaves the bride and groom questioning just what it is they’re celebrating. But there’s no stopping the festivities: the flower girls are running amuck, the bridal party members are preoccupied with their own flailing relationships, and everyone needs to stop ordering the blue drinks. Comedies end in marriage. Tragedies end in death. This play begins with both.

Directed by Edward Coffield

Cast: Alan Knoll*, Jessica Kadish, Graham Emmons, Delaney Piggins*, Ryan Lawson-Maeske, Gabrielle Greer*, Will Bonfiglio

Food studies, once trendy, has settled into the public arena. In the academy, scholarship on food and literary culture constitutes a growing river within literary and cultural studies, but writing on African American food and dining remains a tributary. Recipes for Respect: African American Meals and Meaning bridges this gap, illuminating the role of foodways in African American culture as well as the contributions of Black cooks and chefs to what has been considered the mainstream.

Copies of Rafia Zafar's books will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of Subterranean Books.

Rafia Zafar is Professor of English, African and African American Studies, and American Culture Studies at Washington University in St. Louis. Professor Zafar is the author or editor of five books, including the two volume Harlem Renaissance Novels (Library of America, 2011) and We Wear the Mask: African Americans Write American Literature, 1760-1870 (Columbia UP, 1997).

After publishing a memoir on life after retirement, “Hiding in My Pajamas,” and launching a national speaking career traveling the country at 75, Becky Kueker thought she had it all.  Then a complicated surgery requiring six months in a wheelchair turned her life in a new direction.  After fighting fear, depression and the realization that she would once again have to start over, Becky shares her journey and highlights many of the inspiring people she met along the way.  Every chapter of her book is filled with poignant stories from women and men who have proven that aging does not have to define you and that laughter changes everything.
