Cayce Zavaglia: Unseen

Tuesdays-Saturdays. Continues through Nov. 27
William Shearburn Gallery 665 S Skinker Blvd, Clayton Clayton

Cayce Zavaglia's artworks appear to be hyper-realistic painted portraits when viewed from a distance; it's only when you move closer that you realize that they're embroidered. Zavaglia eventually noticed that the backside of each work contained a second portrait, one whose knotted and blurred features were just as beautiful and perhaps more psychologically interesting than the front. Recently she's returned to her roots as a painter by recreating these "hidden faces" in painted portraits. Unseen, a solo exhibition of Zavaglia's work in both paint and embroidery, goes on display at the William Shearburn Gallery (665 South Skinker Boulevard; on Friday, October 18. The show opens with a free reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Unseen remains on display through November 27. 314-367-8020

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

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

Damon Davis: Sad Panther

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. It embodies a visual representation of blackness in deity form, following the story of a God that woke up one day to find there existed a power even greater than him. 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

Kelley Johnson: Rhythmic Patterns

Sat., Nov. 2, 6-8 p.m.
Bruno David Gallery 7513 Forsyth Blvd., Clayton Clayton

Come join us for the opening of Kelley Johnson's exhibition, Rhythmic Patterns. Kelley Johnson’s recent work is an exploration of the formal language of painting and the application of those concepts onto installation and sculpture. The relationship between the participant and the painted object are crucial to the practice. This body of work focuses on investigating the interaction between painting and viewer and their negotiation of movement with the additional sculptural aspects of the pieces. The merging of physical space and optical illusions function as a metaphor of a kaleidoscope’s effects. This will be Johnson’s fifth exhibition with the gallery. 314.696.2377
