Lost & Found

June 21-August 19, 2019

Opening Reception: Friday, June 21, 2019

6 pm-8 pm

I scrounge the alleys, boarded-up buildings and vacant lots like an archeologist searching for buried treasure. The ghosts of a once thriving community have a story to tell before all memory of their existence is erased. My current studio practice involves assembling disparate elements, things that I scavenge and collect from the carnage that is now North St. Louis City. From these discarded materials I create my mixed-media assemblages. The materials I collect are from city streets and neighborhoods, a treasure trove of materials left behind for me to collect – wrought iron metal; rusty nuts, bolts, screws; ropes and chains; old broken tools; lots of wood, now burnt and rotten, that were once doors, window frames and decorative molding; and an abundance of bricks. I use these discarded objects to create art that tells a story about what we value and how we treat the people that once owned them.

Now in its 9th season, the Gesher Music Festival returns for two weeks in August, offering chamber music with a multi-cultural twist. The Festival runs from August 8-18 with three formal concerts as well as informal opportunities to hear some of the music and meet the musicians.

The theme of the festival this season, Shelter of Peace, explores the music of refuge, of security, and of sanctuary. Three distinct concerts reflect different aspects of this theme, each in a different venue.

Gesher Preview Concert August 8th 7:00pm at the World Chess Hall of Fame, 4652 Maryland Ave St. Louis, MO 63108

Enjoy an hour-long  performance featuring the Gesher Artists in this wonderfully intimate venue.

SLAM Tour: Refuge, Security and Sanctuary August 11th 11am at the Saint Louis Art Museum

Be our guest on an exclusive, docent-led tour of art relating to this year’s Shelter of Peace theme, held in the collection of the St. Louis Art Museum. The tour is free, but registration is requested online.

Safe Haven Thursday, August 15th  7:30pm at the Missouri History Museum  This is a Free concert

Throughout history, the United States has served as a safe haven for artists and composers fleeing war and persecution. Join us for a special program highlighting the music and stories behind these refugee composers as Artistic Director Sara Sitzer narrates their fascinating history alongside performances by the world-class Gesher Artists.

Shelter From the Storm Saturday, August 17th  7:30pm at the 560 Music Center  Admission $20

From music depicting the story of Noah’s Ark to the 18th century artistic movement referred to as Sturm und Drang, or Storm and Stress, this program explores how composers depict shelter from all types of storms.

Sacred Spaces Sunday, August 18th 2:00pm at the J’s Wool Studio Theater Admission $20

Whether a synagogue, a church, or a chamber music salon, there is something inherently special about each space. In this program, we’ll explore the music inspired by and written for the places that humans have found to be the most sacred throughout history.

Union Avenue Opera presents Tom Cipullo’s Glory Denied

Four Performances: August 17, 18, 23, 24 at 8:00 p.m.

Based on the novel “Glory Denied” by Tom Philpott

Presented in English with English supertitles

America’s longest-held prisoner of war dreams of coming home. But home is a place he will not recognize. Follow the gut-wrenching saga of Colonel Jim Thompson as he transitions from the jungles of Southeast Asia to the tree-lined streets of suburban America. Glory Denied speaks to the plight of so many of our veterans who nobly fought for their country but face huge challenges when it comes to re-assimilating into society—and their longed-for normal lives—after service. This true story explores the unimaginable bravery asked of soldiers and the nature of hope itself. It is a story of a nation divided and a country that changed significantly in the decade of his imprisonment. Tom Cipullo’s Glory Denied made waves in opera circles when it premiered a decade ago and continues to do so today.

The Glory Denied cast of four includes David Walton (Albert, Albert Herring) as Younger Thompson, Peter Kendall Clark in his UAO debut as Older Thompson, Karina Brazas (Yum-Yum, The Mikado) as Younger Alyce, and Gina Galati (Donna Elvira, Don Giovanni) as Older Alyce. Schoonover conducts as St. Louis native Dean Anthony makes his UAO directorial debut.

To purchase tickets, visit our website or call the box office at (314) 361-2881. General admission adult tickets: $35, Reserved adult tickets: $45.

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.
