Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Oct. 19


A visual journey through time and space – from the rainforests of Africa to the streets of New York City and points in between. Halperin found his photographic roots in the jungles of Tanzania studying chimpanzees along with Jane Goodall. During this time while observing the chimps Stewart developed a keen sense of observation- and what he now considers the most important element of good photography- the gift of time. Mentored by photographer Ernst Haas, Halperin traveled the world and documented his adventures. On display until October 19th at IPHF. 314-535-1999

Jill Downen: Here all is distance, there it was Breath

Tuesdays-Fridays, 12-6 p.m. Continues through Oct. 26
Bruno David Gallery 7513 Forsyth Blvd., Clayton Clayton


The show features Downen’s recent 8 X 10 inches drawings, executed in plaster, lapis lazuli and gold leaf — nearly forty works in all. This new body of work expands the artist’s renowned exploration of human spatial experience and the contemplative value of architectural form. Refined by decades of work with large scale sculptural installations, Downen’s drawings benefit not only from precise conceptual motivation, but also from her distilled palette and proven skill with plaster, lapis and gold leaf. Each piece depicts a moment in which new space emerges or where fragmented structure moves toward balance. 1.314.696-2377

Daniel Raedeke: Adventure

Tuesdays-Fridays, 12-6 p.m. Continues through Oct. 26
Bruno David Gallery 7513 Forsyth Blvd., Clayton Clayton


In his new series of paintings, Daniel Raedeke continues his exploration of the converging boundaries of our physical and digital worlds. Just as natural objects and scenes are photographed, organized, downloaded and shared through various user interfaces, in Adventure, Raedeke designs each painting as a sort of “poster” for experience. Layered, textured and organic surfaces are framed by graphically inspired color panels serving as containers for the handmade process of image making, nature exploration and escape. Floating on and emerging from the textured fragments of color are 3D icons and virtually rendered objects that hover over the randomly generated grounds. 1.314.696-2377

Tuesdays-Fridays, 12-6 p.m. Continues through Oct. 26
Bruno David Gallery 7513 Forsyth Blvd., Clayton Clayton


Sad Panther is an animated music video by acclaimed post-disciplinary artist Damon Davis.

This video is the visual counterpart to the song “Sad Panther” from Darker Gods, the accompanying full-length album to Davis’ exhibition Darker Gods in the Garden of the Low-Hanging Heavens that premiered at The Luminary in June 2018, and made a debut at Art Basel Miami later that year. 1.314.696-2377

Thomas Sleet: Integration: Sacred Space

Tuesdays-Fridays, 12-6 p.m. Continues through Oct. 26
Bruno David Gallery 7513 Forsyth Blvd., Clayton Clayton


Since his youth, Thomas Sleet was always fascinated with nature. He tells stories about growing up in Kirkwood in the 60’s, playing in creeks and running around the neighborhood with his siblings. This fascination followed him well into his adult years, showing up in his sculptures, paintings, prints, and more. True to concepts consistent in past works, Integration: Scared Space continues with Sleet’s theme of intersecting the natural and the manufactured. His new wall mounted pieces highlight his carefully designed experiments with light, space, arrangement/placement, and the concept of the individual intersecting with the whole—the collective. 1.314.696-2377
