The Skivvies

They’re naughty and nice. The “musically thrilling,” award-winning, undie-rock, comedy-pop duo The Skivvies are making their STL debut with their acclaimed holiday show, "I Touch My Elf". Joined by special guests, including Matt Doyle (Spring Awakening, The Book of Mormon, War Horse) The Skivvies— Lauren Molina (Rock of Ages, Sweeney Todd, Candide, Marry Me A Little) and Nick Cearley (Buyer and Cellar, Pageant, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, All Shook Up)—will perform stripped-down versions of eclectic covers, wacky holiday mash-ups (“I Melt with You/Frosty the Snowman,” “We Got the Beat/The Little Drummer Boy”), and eccentric originals (“It’s F*cking Hanukkah,” “The Text Message Song”.) Not only is the music stripped-down—cello, ukulele, glockenspiel, melodica, and a surprising array of other under-used instruments—but The Skivvies literally strip down to their underwear to perform. Grab your spiked eggnog, hurry down the chimney, and settle in for an evening of laughter and holiday cheer! They have everything but pants!

"Indie rock, alt-cabaret, new burlesque: Whatever you call it, the jolly musical comedy of the Skivvies, a troupe of entertainers who perform in their underwear, joyfully rock...Wielding instruments as if they were toys, the Skivvies’ leaders Nick Cearley...and his mischievous curly-headed partner Lauren Molina, treated the stage like a glorified sandbox for grown-up children. With their fellow musicians...they played jet-propelled, humorous mash-ups of songs from near and far in an accelerated jug band style...The Skivvies are paradoxically sophisticated and innocent...they tempt you to rush back to childhood and forward into the future at the same time." - NY Times

"The Skivvies have managed to carve out a niche that we never knew needed to exist: It's part Weird Al-parody and part sexy burlesque...an unusual explosion of satire and sultry." - Out Magazine

People Magazine named The Skivvies as the "Most Playful Performers" in the "Most Talked about Bodies of 2014" Issue

"The Skivvies are best thing to happen to NYC nightlife in years...a shot of pure joy to the heart...A MUST-see! Repeatedly!!!" - Perez Hilton

"...Distinctive musical style, highly original...smart...sophisticated...ingenious..." - Wall Street Journal

"...a hot musical comedy duo specializing in unexpected arrangements, incongruous mashups and, of course, highly toned displays of skin." - The New York Times

"Favorite New Band" - Sports Illustrated

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.

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.
