Layered with incredible musicianship and vocal harmonies of their own, the band is made up of multi-instrumentalists. They can be seen switching between their instruments during live performances which is what gives them the unique edge and lively sound. The Matching Shoe has established a devoted fan base in St. Louis and continues to garner invitations to perform across the United States.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m.

From the acclaimed author of “Death in the Air” comes the riveting story of the birth of criminal investigation in the 20th century. Known as the "American Sherlock Holmes," Edward Oscar Heinrich was one of America's greatest–and first–forensic scientists, with an uncanny knack for finding clues, establishing evidence, and deducing answers with a skill that seemed almost supernatural. Working in a time when the turmoil of Prohibition led to sensationalized crime reporting and only a small, systematic study of evidence. Heinrich spearheaded the invention of a myriad of new forensic tools that police still use today.

Books will be available for purchase at the event from the Novel Neighbor.

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.

Montminy Gallery is proud to present Breaking Patterns, a reflection of female artists related to MU School of Visual Studies. 

Breaking Patterns is the start of our 2020 lineup of artists. The show was co-organized and co-curated by Catherine Armbrust, faculty at MU School of Visual Studies.

As systematic patterns begin to shift so does the academic landscape nationwide, providing space for women in the field of Visual Art to forge through. Breaking Patterns is a grouping of talented female artists teaching and learning in this landscape.

Some of the work relates to breaking personal patterns towards growth, while other work is commenting on systematic patterns around race and gender. Each artist has a story to tell through their work. 

We hope you'll join us for the opening reception of these talented artists, Feb. 15, 2-5pm.

Drinks and light snacks provided.
