Printing Abstraction

Fridays, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. and Tuesdays-Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through March 31

Abstract art is a term that includes a wide variety of media: monochromatic color fields, hard-edged abstraction and its flat colors, and the sharply defined edges and optical illusions inherent in op-art's geometric forms. What links all of these styles together is that they are divorced from the traditional representation of physical objects. For its new exhibition Printing Abstraction, the Saint Louis Art Museum draws from its own holdings of abstract art created by printmakers. The show is something of an expansion of the museum's ongoing main exhibition, Graphic Revolution: American Prints 1960 to Now, in that it offers more examples of the printmakers' art and the key role it's played in the promulgation of abstract art. Printing Abstraction is on display from Tuesday through Sunday (November 30 to March 31) in galleries 234 and 235 of the Saint Louis Art Museum (1 Fine Arts Drive; www.slam.org). Admission is free. free admission

Current Profile

Sundays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Continues through March 17

Once reserved for the wealthy and the social elite, portraiture has been democratized down to the informal level of the selfie. Freed from its staid origins, the modern portrait can be heroic representation, transgressive, humorous or an act of wish fulfillment. Current Profile, the new exhibition at the Craft Alliance Center of Art + Design (6640 Delmar Boulevard, University City; www.craftalliance.org), explores contemporary portraiture in all media. The show features everything from Richard Wehrs' sculpted bust of an alien warrior to Cayce Zavaglia's embroidered image of a young woman in pigtails, and all points in between. Current Profile opens with a free reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, January 11. The exhibition remains up through March 17. free admission

Christine Corday: Relative Points

Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through April 21

Space is deep, to quote Hawkwind, and yet scientists believe all living creatures on Earth contain stellar elements within their genetic makeup. Artist Christine Corday explores this union of humans and the stars in her new exhibition Relative Points, which was commissioned by the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis. Eleven of Corday's large sculptural forms, which are each made of more than 10,000 pounds of elemental metals and metalloid grit, will be arranged within the museum in a pattern of Corday's choosing. The sculptures, which resemble slightly squashed black marshmallows more than four feet high, are intended to be touched; they're essentially the same base elements as humans, after all. During the course of the exhibit, the shapes will change gradually from repeated contact and the inexorable force of universal gravitational attraction. You'll have your first opportunity to get close and personal with Corday's work at the opening reception, which takes place from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, January 18, at Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (3750 Washington Boulevard; www.camstl.org). Christine Corday: Relative Points remains fixed in space through April 21. free admission

Finding Common Ground: The Photography of Oraien Catledge and Jay Stock

Wednesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through March 16
phone 314-535-1999
,

The International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum is pleased to present two exhibitions presenting the photographs of Oraien Catledge and Jay Stock. Both were outsiders to the communities they engaged with. One delved almost exclusively in a single impoverished, overlooked city neighborhood examining the lives of those that lived on the margins of society. The other traveled the world creating photographic essays of the people he met and their varied customs and traditions. Together they shared a profound respect and insistent fascination for the people they photographed. Adults $10 Students, Seniors $5, Children under 5 Free

Margaret Keller: The Space Between

Mondays-Fridays, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Feb. 21
phone 618-222-5278
nicole.dutton@swic.edu

The Space Between includes laser-cut sculpture, mixed media, and a 52-foot installation of unique round paintings of nature that are not obviously trees, sky, and mountains. Focused on the spaces between, these round paintings could be views through a microscope of cells or through a telescope of outer space. Keller looks at nature and questions how we see, now that the virtual/online world of nature photographs and videos have become more real than reality for so many. Her art redirects the soft focus of nature photographs so that the human eye intervenes with the camera's eye and takes priority. Free
