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.

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.

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 and Archo present an SF STL event with Nebula Award-winning author Charlie Jane Anders, who will sign and discuss her new novel, "The City in the Middle of the Night"!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "The City in the Middle of the Night:" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

The bestselling author of "All the Birds in the Sky" delivers a brilliant new novel set in a hauntingly strange future. January is a dying planet —divided between a permanently frozen darkness on one side, and blazing endless sunshine on the other. Humanity clings to life, spread across two archaic cities built in the sliver of habitable dusk. But life inside the cities is just as dangerous as the uninhabitable wastelands outside. Sophie, a student and reluctant revolutionary, is supposed to be dead, after being exiled into the night. Saved only by forming an unusual bond with the enigmatic beasts who roam the ice, Sophie vows to stay hidden from the world. But fate has other plans —and Sophie's ensuing odyssey and the ragtag family she finds will change the entire world.
