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

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

Farragut North

Sundays, 3 p.m. and Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Feb. 24

Stephen is an up-and-coming press secretary for a surprising presidential candidate. Or maybe that's just Stephen's spin in action. He's constantly spinning something, whether in a "candid" interview with a New York Times reporter or while regaling a backroom audience with stunning tales of his political acumen. He's young and handsome, and with his candidate's impending move to the Oval Office, there's no height he can't metaphorically scale. Of course the higher you rise, the harder the fall. House of Cards creator Beau Willimon wrote his politics 'n' power drama Farragut North after years of working on other people's campaigns, most notably Howard Dean's failed presidential run in 2004. St. Louis Actors Studio presents Farragut North at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday (February 8 to 24) at the Gaslight Theater (358 North Boyle Avenue; www.stlas.org). Tickets are $30 to $35. $30-$35

Exit, Pursued by a Bear

Sundays, 2 p.m. Continues through Feb. 17

Nan's life in the woods of North Georgia isn't easy. Dominated and abused by her husband Kyle, she's eager to break free from him and live her own life. Now she has a plan to do just that, but first she wants to extract some justice from the lout. Once she has Kyle securely duct-taped to his recliner, she enlists her gay friend Simon to be her emotional cheerleader and Sweetheart, a local stripper who wants to break into acting, to recreate some of the worst moments of her marriage. And after Nan has shown Kyle the error of his ways, she doesn't plan to leave anything behind. With some luck and enough raw meat as bait, the local bear population should take care of any loose ends, like her husband. Lauren Gunderson's Exit, Pursued by a Bear is a dark comedy about a woman empowering herself by any means necessary. The West End Players Guild performs the show at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday (February 8 to 17) at the Union Avenue Christian Church (733 North Union Boulevard; www.westendplayers.org). Tickets are $20 to $25. $20-$25
