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.

Note: 2 p.m. Mantinee 

Will Soll loves Yiddish poetry and song, and he loves Bob Dylan, and he discovered that playing them side by side was mutually energizing and illuminating. If you love one, this might be a way to get a new appreciation for the other. And if you love both, this concert is tailor-made for you. With Alyssa Avery (violin) and Mark Wallace (bass).

Soulful Sunday with Miss Jubilee

February 24 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm CST

Led by powerhouse vocalist Valerie Kirchhoff, Miss Jubilee plays an energetic blend of Hot Jazz, Hokum, and Low-Down Blues from the 1920s and 30s. Their one-of-kind repertoire draws heavily from the bluesy and swingin’ sounds of St. Louis and Chicago’s south side. “A kind of hot elegant rawness, a wild oxymoron that will make sense with the first listening.” – Michael Steinman, Jazz Lives

Tickets are 10 dollars.

Wanda Petronski, the new girl in Room 13, is a Polish immigrant who lives in a shabby house and doesn’t have any friends. Every day she wears the same faded blue dress, but tells her new class-mates that she has a hundred dresses at home. Her classmates tease Wanda about her hundred dresses until one day she disappears from school. As guilt overtakes the children, they decide to find out what happened to Wanda and to make amends. But is it too late? Bullying, friendship and forgiveness are at the center of this play adapted from the beloved Newbery Honor Book by Eleanor Estes.

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.

The Bonsack Gallery opens Art Marks from Minnesota and Montana to the Confluence: Watershed Cairns by Libby Reuter and Joshua Rowan with a reception on Friday, February 22 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. 

Artists Reuter and Rowan have collaborated since 2011 on a project they call Watershed Cairns — large-scale color photographs of glass sculptures placed in watersheds throughout the Mississippi-Missouri river basin. Reuter, a sculptor and installation artist, creates reliquary-inspired glass “cairns” constructed from household or antique glass; each piece is made in response to a specific site. Because the cairns are too delicate to keep in place, Rowan photographs them to record their presence in the landscape. The artists display most photographs on watershedcairns.com, along with a short description and GPS coordinates, so viewers may visit the sites themselves and note changes in the landscape and the rivers over time. The work also appears in galleries and museums, with many cairns displayed with their corresponding photograph. 

So far, Reuter and Rowan have traveled to more than 300 locations in the Missouri-Mississippi basin. Their project aims to “mark the watersheds metaphorically as fragile, beautiful, and deeply connected to everyday life,” and to spark community discussions around water. The artists’ current series focuses on Mississippi River basin’s water wealth: the river provides drinking water for 50 million people and irrigates 90 percent of the United States’ agricultural exports. 

The exhibit runs through April 10. The Bonsack Gallery is a not-for-profit educational gallery on the campus of John Burroughs School. Regular gallery hours are 8 am to 6:30 pm, Monday through Friday.

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
