Identi-TEA

Mondays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sundays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through March 18

The humble teapot is a staple for ceramicists. They're functional and make good gifts (mothers love them), as well as allowing the artist to stretch creatively. A handle, a lid and a spout are the essential elements, but beyond that, anything goes. Identi-TEA: The Sixteenth Biennial Teapot exhibition at the Craft Alliance Center of Art + Design (6640 Delmar Boulevard, University City; www.craftalliance.org) features a wild and whimsical selection of teapots. The opening reception takes place from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, January 12, and the show continues through March 18. The gallery is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free. free admission

Postwar Prints and Multiples: Investigating the Collection

Mondays, Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through April 16

Like many collecting institutions, the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum (1 Brookings Drive; www.kemperartmuseum.wustl.edu) houses more art than it can easily display. As part of its continuing mission to bring stored pieces out for the public to enjoy, the Kemper presents its new exhibition, Postwar Prints and Multiples: Investigating the Collection. The exhibit draws on the wealth of printed artwork by a range of artists who rose to prominence during the twentieth century from a host of artistic movements. Among the artists represented by key works are Ellsworth Kelly, Claes Oldenburg, Man Ray, Meret Oppenheim, Roy Lichtenstein and La Monte Young. Postwar Prints and Multiples opens with a free reception from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, February 2, at the museum. The show remains on display through April 16, and admission is free. free admission

Trenton Doyle Hancock: The Re-Evolving Door to the Moundverse

Fridays, Saturdays, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. and Wednesdays, Thursdays, Sundays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through April 22

Drawing inspiration from the morality tales of cartoons (a cat is always bad, but birds or mice are good; dogs also are heroes), comic books (equally flamboyant bad guys and good guys), video games and films, Trenton Doyle Hancock created his own private universe, one in which the Mounds (half-plant, half-animal, all-good living forest) and the Vegans (they eat Mounds!) endlessly battle it out for supremacy. Both Coonbear and Bringback, a henchman in a striped unitard, are part of the battle, because they're also some part of Hancock. Politics, race, class, identity and issues of social justice are hidden in these stories, just like Sun Ra's own fully scored space operas in the jazz world. Trenton Doyle Hancock: The Re-Evolving Door to the Moundverse is a collection of these drawings, sculptures and prints that show part of the eternal struggle of good and evil, right and wrong, moral and immoral. The Re-Evolving Door to the Moundverse opens with a free reception at 7 p.m. Friday, January 19, at Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (3750 Washington Boulevard; www.camstl.org). Hancock will discuss the Moundverse and his work at 11 a.m. Saturday, January 20. The show continues through April 22, and the gallery is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday, and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Admission is free. free admission

Blackbird

Sundays, 3 p.m. and Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Feb. 25

Old lovers reunite in David Harrower's play Blackbird, but this get-together is far from a happy one. Una shows up at Ray's office and demands to speak with him about the way things between them ended. Ray would rather not, because he's made a new life for himself and doesn't want to ruin it. Una feels she's owed something from Ray, however — he did leave her when she was just twelve years old, and as an adult he should have handled it better. Blackbird is a tense (and potentially upsetting) play about uncomfortable subjects, and a happy end is not in store. St. Louis Actors' Studio presents Blackbird at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday (9 to 25) at the Gaslight Theater (358 North Boyle Avenue; www.stlas.org). Tickets are $30 to $35. $30-$35

Infected

Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m., Sundays, 7 p.m. and Sun., Feb. 25, 2 p.m. Continues through Feb. 18

Albert Ostermaier's drama Infected centers on a lone day trader. He's under quarantine, and his mental health is swiftly deteriorating under his protracted isolation — or maybe it's his mysterious malady that's eating away at his brain? Whichever it is, he's definitely slipping free of reality; he's begun to think he caught his virus from the stock market itself, as he explains in a frantic monologue about his life, his work and his disease. Upstream Theater presents the American premiere of Infected, translated by Philip Boehm from Ostermaier's original German. Performances take place at 8 p.m. Thursday to Saturday and 7 p.m. Sunday (February 9 to 24), with an additional 2 p.m. show on Sunday, February 25, at the Kranzberg Arts Center (501 North Grand Boulevard; www.upstreamtheater.org). Tickets are $25 to $35. $25-$35

Silent Sky

Sundays, 2 p.m. and Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Feb. 18

Henrietta Leavitt has questions about deep space and Earth's place and role in the universe, so she gets a job at the Harvard Observatory in hopes of finding satisfying answers. Instead, she's confronted by the very unsatisfactory reality that women aren't allowed to use the telescope. Her dream job turns out to be grunt work, as she's expected to catalog all the stars revealed on the telescope's photographic plates, while men pursue the business of discovery. Women are capable of seeing what men cannot, and in those plates Leavitt found something no one else had noticed and broke new ground in astronomy. Lauren Gunderson's play Silent Sky charts the lives and work of early twentieth-century female astronomers, and how they defied the odds to do great work in an age when society mostly demanded they stay out of the way and procreate. West End Players Guild presents Silent Sky at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (February 9 to 18) at the Union Avenue Christian Church (733 North Union Avenue; www.westendplayers.org). Tickets are $20 to $25. $20-$25

Yvonne Osei: Tailored Landscapes

Mondays-Wednesdays, Fridays-Sundays, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and Thursdays, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Continues through March 4

Yvonne Osei takes over the Adam Aronson Fine Arts Center for her exhibition Tailored Landscapes — literally. Her large-scale photo installation occupies the length and breadth of the gallery, the two-year-old indoor gallery located at Laumeier Sculpture Park. The German-born artist has been photographing Laumeier throughout the past year; these images are then manipulated to create patterns reminiscent of the brightly patterned textiles of her Ghanian culture. Osei's manufactured figures comprise people observing the park’s sculptures, roads and the backdrop of greenery that surrounds Laumeier, but these elements only become apparent at close range. free admission
