Damon Davis’s All Hands On Deck is a powerful artwork that addresses social justice and the call for change. He conceived the original photographs of hands held up high during the months-long protests after Michael Brown Jr. was shot and killed in Ferguson in August 2014. Recalling the protestors’ chant “Hands up don’t shoot” that was echoed throughout the protests—they were photographed with their “hands up.” That signal of surrender, however, is transformed in Davis’s photographs into one of resistance, fortitude, and community. This free exhibition will be on view through March 22, 2022.

St. Louis–based artist Jess T. Dugan is known for their color photographs that explore the power of identity, desire, and connection. In Currents 120: Jess T. Dugan, the Museum presents a selection of 20 recent works—portraits, self-portraits, and still lifes—many of which were created specifically for this exhibition. Within a framework of queer and nonbinary experience and from an actively constructed sense of masculinity, Dugan’s portraits examine intersections between individual identity and the search for intimate connection with others. This free exhibition will be on view through February 20, 2022.

Oliver Lee Jackson is known for creating complex and layered images in which figurative elements—or what he calls “paint people”—emerge from abstract fields of vibrant color. Jackson’s practice is informed by a deep understanding of global art history—from early modern European painting to African art. Yet his works do not aim to elevate a single message, narrative, or meaning. Rather, the works serve as an open invitation to slow and close looking, encouraging viewers to stake emotional claim on the paintings and not wait for instructions on what to see.

The Foundry Art Centre is excited to announce A Very Rad Palentine’s Day, a special installment of its First Friday series, on February 4th, from 5-8pm. Foundry studio artist Jessie Schoenrock of Rad & Sad Art will “take over” the Foundry to celebrate the joy of having PALS. Guests will be given a demonstration of the basics of throwing clay and have the chance to make a bud vase or wine tumbler, with Jessie right there to help with inspiration and know-how.

After throwing on the potter’s wheel, guests are invited to make their own candle with The Owl Perch. The local candle maker will have a candle-pouring station available for guests to purchase their own bespoke candle with choice of scent and vintage vessel.

The Baue Children’s Gallery will have free art activities including Valentine’s Day card making and custom vinyl signs. The Foundry bar will have a variety of offerings including a signature Palentine’s Day cocktail. R&B musician Terrance Wafer will provide the soundtrack for the evening.

Exhibitions by Rachel Ferguson, Judy Duggan-McCormack, and Kalven Duncan continue in the Main Galleries, and Jody Williams’ exhibition is on view in the Ameristar Gallery.

Registration for wheel throwing is required. To register, visit https://radandsadart.com/. 

Events and exhibitions at the Foundry Art Centre are free and open to the public.
