"Time After Time was never better, and I hear Sinatra sing it!" -Carol Burnett

Fresh off a successful national Broadway tour as the heartthrob Gaston in Beauty and the Beast, and a solo show in Carnegie Hall, Christiaan Smith returns to his hometown and the place where his new CD “Come Fly With Us" was recorded. The show will reprise much of the record. It’s a modern take on some of the coolest and most iconic songs of any generation. Inspired by sounds Sinatra didn’t live to hear, Christiaan treats you to some of the most cunning performances these songs have seen in years. Your standard martini, with a twist.

Saunders Schultz (1927-2017) was a prominent St. Louis artist and among the founders of the concept of Architectural / Environmental Sculpture. He was cofounder of Scopia Studio with fellow St. Louisan William Severson (1924 - 1999), and contributed to nearly 300 monumental works over his career; these diverse sculptures are found throughout St. Louis, in 37 states, and around the world. 

This focused exhibition presents examples of drawings, paintings and sculpture that illustrate Schultz’s affinity for nature as his primary inspiration. The drawings and paintings in this exhibition reveal the complex ways in which Schultz captured the shapes of leaves, trees, flowing water, and in some cases capturing the concept of rushing air. Despite their small size, these pieces still convey the grace, complexity, and monumentality of the site-specific works for which Schultz is known.

The Bonsack Gallery opens In a Time of Greatness, a solo show by Thad Duhigg, with a reception from 5:30 to 7:30 pm on Friday, December 6. The exhibit runs through February 14.

The word “landscape,” is nearly synonymous with painting. Thad Duhigg subverts this tradition by creating landscape sculptures. Cast in bronze, they reference the pastoral in art as well as classical statuary found in and around museums, parks and public buildings. However, Duhigg’s subject matter — including immigration, mass surveillance, ecological collapse and terrorism —is completely contemporary. Devoid of human figures, each landscape is a staging ground for disasters large and small. The tip of a tornado touches down to earth; agricultural chemicals seep into the soil between cornstalks; an empty raft, much like the ones used by Syrian refugees escaping war, swirls in the ocean. Duhigg’s use of bronze also evokes the military use of the metal, including armor, cannons, helmets and spears. By placing each piece on a plinth like those used for Greco-Roman and neoclassical sculptures, Duhigg asks the viewer to direct their gaze upward, and to question what they place on a pedestal. In addition to cast metal, Duhigg creates sculptures using wood, steel fabrication and modeling. 

Thad Duhigg is currently professor of sculpture in the department of art and design at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. He received an MFA from Syracuse University and a BFA from Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Duhigg has exhibited at Laumeier Sculpture Park, the Rockford Art Museum, the Amarillo Museum of Art, the Huntsville Museum of Art and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. He received a Fulbright Senior Scholar Award to Budapest, Hungary. For more information, visit www.thadduhigg.com.
