Jon Bonham has been leading a band of “Friends” around Saint Louis for over ten years. His music blends garage band Americana with soulful takes on juke joint country, folk rock and blues. Bonham’s distinct voice “recalls a love-child of Kris Kristofferson and Tom Waits” while his musical references can all be traced to Robert Zimmerman.

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.

Gallery 210 is pleased to present WAR-TOYS: Israel, West Bank, and Gaza Strip January 25, 2020. The exhibition opens on January 25th and runs through March 14, 2020.

Children often share their experiences and emotions through indirect methods of communication, such as art and play. As a result, their personal accounts of war frequently go unseen and unheard by the international community. In WAR-TOYS: Israel, West Bank, and Gaza Strip, Brian McCarty’s an internationally exhibited artist and toy industry veteran, whose photographic works interpret children’s therapeutic drawings and offer a rare yet fascinating insight into the contemporary experiences of Palestinian and Israeli boys and girls. WAR-TOYS is a striking portrait of war from the eyes of the innocent. 

WAR-TOYS: Israel, West Bank, and Gaza Strip was organized by Tinca Art, Inc., and Exhibits USA/Mid-America Arts Alliance.

Gallery 210 is pleased to present the exhibition Unnatural States by Ilene Berman. The exhibition opens on February 8th at 4PM with an artist’s talk followed by a public reception. 

The exhibition is an installation of institutional floor tiles, chalkboard, several dozen soft-sculpture student desks and a two-channel video. The artist is asking if art has the capacity to adequately address the structural concerns of our day and is it possible for an artist to engage the viewer in these concerns by creating spaces for them to think and feel. Berman writes that she is creating a space that asks the visitor  ‘. . .  to consider the social structures that prevent schools from being places to practice freedom and asks who is hurt by and who benefits from this constructed absence of freedom?

This exhibition is made possible by the Missouri Arts Council, the Center for the Humanities, and the College of Arts and Sciences at UMSL. 

Public parking for Gallery 210 is available at the South Millennium Parking Garage on the east side of East Drive on the UM-St. Louis Campus. Handicapped parking is available behind Gallery 210.

Gallery 210 is on the University of Missouri-St. Louis at 44 Arnold Grobman Drive between the  North UM-St. Louis Metro Station and the Touhill Performing Arts Center. 

The gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM. The gallery phone is (314) 516-5976; the fax is (314) 516-4997; and email is This email address is being protected from spambots.
