11-03-2019 - 11-12-2019 11:00 pm

Join the Kirkwood Theatre Guild for our final season at the Robert G. Reim Theatre before we move into our new home at Taylor and Monroe next summer! 

It is December 1936, and Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. It is then up to Gillette, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays.

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.

"Recent Work" represents three different aspects of Robert Lucy’s current art practice. The first group of paintings, ICONS, is a series of large-scale works depicting TV characters from his 1970s childhood that explore motherhood, feminine power and sexual identity. The second group marks Lucy’s return to landscape painting where he has taken his easel outdoors to paint Northeastern landscapes, including the Catskills and Cape Cod. The third group of paintings includes recent portrait commissions. Robert Lucy is currently an artist-in-residence at the Byrdcliffe Artists Colony in Woodstock, New York. He will be available to answer questions during the opening reception on October 3 from 5:30 to 7 pm. To see and learn more about his work, visit his website, www.robertlucy.com.

Gallery 210 is pleased to present an exhibition of mixed media drawings by St. Louis artist Howard Barry. The exhibition Inertia opens on September 14 at 4PM with an artist’s talk followed by a reception for the artist from 5PM to 7PM. 

Howard Barry's artwork can be read as asserting the subjective value of the individual against the injustices of contemporary life. Barry's drawings – of historic civil rights images and as images of the present-day Black Lives Matter struggle – are in a feverishly present conversation with their surface. At a very deep level his drawings are an assertion of mortality against the false idea that history, and its oppressions, are over.

Gallery 210 is pleased to present the video “Chicago Cottages” by noted Chicago photographer Jane Calvin. The exhibition opens on September 14 with a reception for the artist from 5PM to 7PM. 

Jane Calvin’s video is an accidental documentary that came about when her assistant, Eve Kalugin, discovered these photographs in a box in one of the artist’s files. These once forgotten images are reminders of buildings and communities dissolving under the relentless assault of real estate development. Of this work Calvin writes: I actually made the photographs that comprise this body of work in the 1970’s. I dragged my rented 4x5 view camera into the Pilsen area, inspired by a beloved professor at the School of the Art Institute, Harold Allen, who lived in the area and was himself an architectural photographer. He understood the uniqueness of this architecture, and certainly was familiar with the area. It was summer and hot and the children of the area were fascinated by what I was doing. So, each time I emerged from beneath the black cloth covering the camera, I was surrounded by a ‘mob’ of small, curious kids. I enjoyed the activity, and the lively quality of the neighborhood, which no longer exists thanks to ruthless gentrification.

The LA TIMES raves "I was laughing too hard to breathe," at the hilarious Off-Broadway smash, Dixie's Tupperware Party. After a final meeting with her parole officer, this ex-con mother of three from a trailer park in Alabama straightens out her life by selling the iconic plastic bowls. She quickly became the hottest seller in the country by throwing the kind of parties you won’t soon forget. With her booze-filled sippy cup, Dixie shares many alternative uses for what she calls "the most fantastic plastic crap on the planet" which made THE TODAY SHOW cheer, "This is not your grandmother's Tupperware Party." The show is bawdy and interactive and you can actually buy some Tupperware along the way.
