The Bonsack Gallery opens "1968: A Portrait of Rock & Roll" with a reception on Friday, January 18 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. The exhibition includes vintage rock posters from the collection of Ted L. and Maryanne Ellison Simmons; vintage photographs by Baron Wolman, Rolling Stone magazine’s chief photographer between 1967 and 1971; display pages from vintage Rolling Stone magazines loaned by J. Appel Photographs; and a collection of record albums from 1968. Visitors to the gallery will also hear a curated playlist from that year. 

 

As music journalist Chris King writes in the exhibition notes, “the second half of 1968 was relatively quiet on the streets of America — quiet compared to widespread riots in the aftermath of the assassination of a nonviolent protest leader — but loud with transformative rock ‘n’ roll. In August, Janis Joplin’s band, Big Brother and the Holding Company, released Cheap Thrills. Jimi Hendrix released Electricladyland in September. The Beatles released the self-titled, white-covered record known as The White Album in November. And their fellow British rivals The Rolling Stones released Beggars Banquet in December. Rock music continued to evolve and shoot off sparks, even if ‘the incredible springtime’ that ushered in the ‘Summer of Love’ was over.” Some of those sparks included art and street fashion, including the hippie style on display in Wolman’s portraits of rock artists like Jim Morrison, Hendrix and Joplin. The concert posters and handbills in the exhibit mirror the flamboyance of the era’s music, with their combination of Pop Art colors, nonlinear typefaces and surreal imagery.

 

During the run of the exhibition, visitors may purchase raffle tickets ($10, or 5 for $40) to win a signed Baron Wolman photograph of their choice. Tickets may be purchased at the opening reception on January 18, and will be available at the John Burroughs School bookstore through the run of the show. All proceeds go to the California Community Foundation’s Wildfire Relief Fund. 1968 closes on Wednesday, February 20. 

 

The Bonsack Gallery is a not-for-profit educational gallery on the campus of John Burroughs School. Regular gallery hours are 8 am to 5 pm, weekdays.

The traditional landscape painting often contains a horizon line, recognizable landforms, and an idealized representation of Nature. Looking deeper, the historic use of the landscape mirrors the inner-state of that society's relationship to the political, religious, economic, and natural world around it. "Layered Place" invites viewers to reevaluate their definition of landscape, and consider the multiple "layers" of the multi-faceted modern landscape. This group exhibit delves into humanity's tumultuous relationship with Nature, visual metaphors for Place, social and cultural identity, family heritage, and way-finding. 

The exhibition includes work by St. Louis-based artists Jenna Bauer, Meghan Grubb, Song Park, Mandy Pedigo, Allana Ross, John Sarra, and Jon Young, and is curated by Charis Norell.

The exhibition will be up FEBRUARY 9 - APRIL 30

GALLERY HOURS ARE WEEKDAYS FROM 9AM - 6PM

Showcasing photographers who use 19th and early 20th century processes to comment on contemporary issues and subjects, the exhibit highlights how these antique methods of artistic expression can still have powerful validity in today's world. Despite, or perhaps because of, the readiness, ease and ubiquity of photography in the 21st century, there has been a movement of photographic artists who have turned to early processes like the tintype, ambrotype and daguerreotype to delineate their subjects, imbuing their work with a beauty and material quality not found in the photos made with social media and instant filters. The exhibition will include work by David Emitt Adams, Binh Danh, Jill Enfield, Mark Katzman, Annie Lopez, Barbara McDonnell, Eric Omori, Keliy Anderson Staley and Will Wilson.

Born in 1901, Wallace Herndon Smith was a traditional painter who absorbed the visual language of artists like Pierre Bonnard, Henri Matisse and Edward Hopper. In the late 1930s, his work gained attention from important American artists like Hopper, Walt Kuhn and Peggy Bacon. He traveled extensively to Europe, Mexico and America's East Coast, and had a summer residence and studio in Harbor Springs, Michigan, subjects of which are found in several works in the exhibit. His works have been exhibited widely including in New York at the Museum of Modern Art and in Philadelphia, St. Louis and many other cities.

Sheldon Concert Hall and Art Galleries

This exhibit showcases the talents of students from Wentzville School District High Schools who, in their curriculum, study the expression of identity. Humanity shares a common characteristic–the desire to be recognized by others. One common way we gain recognition is through the individual pursuit of originality. The works in the exhibition aim to convey a sense of how we identify, justly or not, one another's individuality based on the experiences of living in a diverse society.

Left Bank Books welcomes social entrepreneur, mentor, and public speaker Chris Wilson, who will sign and discuss his new book, "The Master Plan: My Journey from Life in Prison to a Life of Purpose," with Missouri Workforce Housing Association executive director Jeff Smith! 

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "The Master Plan" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line. 

Growing up in a tough Washington, D.C., neighborhood, Chris Wilson was so afraid for his life he wouldn’t leave the house without a gun. One night, defending himself, he killed a man. At eighteen, he was sentenced to life in prison with no hope of parole. But what should have been the end of his story became the beginning. Deciding to make something of his life, Chris embarked on a journey of self-improvement—reading, working out, learning languages, even starting a business. He wrote his Master Plan: a list of all he expected to accomplish or acquire. He is the embodiment of second chances, and this is his unforgettable story.

Jeff Smith is executive director of the Missouri Workforce Housing Association, which comprises 190 organizations dedicated to preserving and developing safe, decent affordable housing throughout the state. He also consults for Concordance Academy, a non-profit focused on helping former prisoners successfully transition back to the community. Previously, Jeff was a professor of urban policy at The New School's Milano Graduate School. From 2006-2009, Jeff represented St. Louis City in the Missouri Senate. Jeff has written three books: "Trading Places," "Mr. Smith Goes to Prison," and "Ferguson in Black and White." Jeff, whose TED talk on prison entrepreneurship has garnered over a million views, serves on the national boards of the Prison Entrepreneurship Program and American Prison Data Systems.

Part flesh, part felt and packed with heart, AVENUE Q is a laugh-out-loud musical telling the timeless story of a bright-eyed college grad named Princeton. When he arrives in the city with big dreams and a tiny bank account, he has to move into a shabby apartment all the way out on AVENUE Q. Still, the neighbors seem nice. There, he meets Kate (the girl next door), Lucy (the slut), Rod (the Republican), Trekkie (the internet entrepreneur), superintendent Gary Coleman (yes, that Gary Coleman) and other new friends! Together, they struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.

Stephen Bellamy is a wunderkind press secretary who has built a career that men twice his age would envy. During a tight presidential primary race, Stephen's meteoric rise falls prey to the backroom politics of more seasoned operatives. FARRAGUT NORTH is a timely story about the lust for power and the costs one will endure to achieve it.
