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. This free exhibition will be on view through February 20, 2022.

*EVERY 3RD WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH FROM 7:30 - 9:00 PM CT ON THE FOLK SCHOOL FACEBOOK PAGE*

Folk School is thrilled to partner with Patt & Possum (a.k.a Patt Plunkett and Charlie Walden) for a monthly online fiddle tunes session featuring Missouri and Midwestern repertoire.

All are welcome to join in these free sessions. Tune in on the Folk School Facebook page to join. Also multi-streamed at https://twitch.tv/bigfiddleshow and on YouTube at https://youtube.com/c/CharlieWalden

Fiddle Tune James are made possible with funding from the Missouri Arts Council.

About Patt & Possum:

Charlie Walden is among the major Missouri fiddle stylists of his generation. He learned his craft directly from the great Missouri fiddlers of the previous generation and cut his teeth at fiddle contests and square dances all over the state. His playing emphasizes clean noting, is highly melodic, and uses a direct and driving approach to bowing to generate rhythm for dancing. Charlie’s latest “claim to fame” is to have been the last fiddler standing at the Pembroke, ON, Pure Laine competition, not once, but twice, and the only non-Canadian fiddler ever to finish.

Charlie is ably assisted by his partner in music and life Patt Plunkett on keyboard. Patt is the “real” musician of the two. She has a master’s degree in vocal performance (that’s opera singing, by the way) and taught general music in Illinois public schools for almost 30 years. But traditional music is her real love having grown up hearing her grandfather playing the fiddle in rural Illinois. She’s led ceili bands, called square dances, and accompanied fiddlers in contests, jam sessions, and at dances.

At the start of “strange times” back in March 2020 Patt and Charlie started broadcasting nightly on YouTube mostly to friends, relatives, and neighbors and have added additional streams and events since. Be in the know and get on their mailing list. Send a message: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Immigration has been a touchstone of the U.S. political debate for decades, as policymakers have weighed economic, security, and humanitarian concerns. Congress has been unable to reach an agreement on comprehensive immigration reform for years, and in the meantime, people are suffering.

The National Council of Jewish Women St. Louis has always been at the forefront of immigration rights advocacy, but we must always strive to do more.

For our February Lunch & Learn, we are thrilled to welcome Javad M. Khazaeli, the Co-Founder of Khazaeli Wyrsch, LLC, a St. Louis-based law firm that focuses on civil rights, immigration, and litigation. In 2021, the Riverfront Times chose Javad as the Best Attorney in St. Louis. In 2017, St. Louis University awarded Javad and his firm the Excellence in Pro Bono and Public Service award. Javad is the only private bar attorney in America that has served in senior immigration positions in both the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Labor. For nearly a decade, he was assigned to the Department of Justice and then the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, National Security Law Division. His writings have been featured in the New York Times, Washington Post, and others, and his life story was featured on the 11:FS-Connection Interrupted technology podcast, Javad Khazaeli, The Immigrant’s Story.

Each class includes zazen meditation, beginning with 10 minutes during the first class, and working up to 30 minutes by the end of the series. You will also learn how to do walking meditation.
