The Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (CAM) presents Botanica absentia, an installation by St. Louis artist Margaret Keller.  Botanica absentia creates a fictive memorial and archive dedicated to lost trees. Set in an imaginary future, after climate change has forced most living organisms toward either mutation or extinction, the installation serves as a commemoration to extinct tree species. The artist combines laser cut dichroic Plexiglas, wood, aluminum, and chrome to create a replica limb from the 'now-extinct' Cercis canadensis, or redbud tree. Multi-hued refractions transform the somber black walls of the space into a dystopian tribute to nature devastated by climate change. This installation emerges out of Keller's belief that at this precise moment, we are at the tipping point of a world gone wrong.  

The exhibition, curated by the Teen Museum Studies program, is open to the public in CAM's Education Gallery September 6 through December 29, 2019. Artist's talk 7:15pm, September 6.  

Utilizing diverse media such as sculpture, installation, technology, and mixed media to address the survival of interdependent species as they adapt to the future, Margaret Keller investigates the relationship between nature, contemporary culture, and technology, along with their effects on our lives. Recent exhibitions include The Arkansas Art Center Museum, Little Rock (2017); Gallery 210, University of Missouri-St. Louis (2017); The William and Florence Schmidt Art Center Museum, Belleville, IL (2019); and The Public Works commission for Riverbend, a 133-foot long aluminum public art project at The Gateway Arch National Park (2018). Keller received the 2019 Regional Arts Commission Fellowship Award for Artistic Excellence.

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.

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.

October is our 'open' month, when prospective singers can rehearse with us and see if we're a good match for their talents and interests. 

For choral singers looking for a vibrant music experience, preparing for carols and so much more, this is an ideal time to try out the music program at Third Baptist Church. If Baptists had a cathedral, this would be it. A gorgeous sanctuary accommodating 1200 souls, the second biggest pipe organ in St. Louis, and a brand new Steinway 'D' grand piano. Repertoire like no other ~ ranging from Tudor motets to Gospel classics, from established classics to recent commissions, and always advocating the work of women composers.

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.
