Unravel: Paintings by Lauren Marx

Starts Dec. 14. Fri., Dec. 14, 6-10 p.m. and Fridays, Saturdays, 12-3 p.m. Continues through Jan. 5, 2019

Lauren Marx's fascination with the animal kingdom was fueled by countless childhood trips to the Saint Louis Zoo. This interest in biology led to mythology, particularly the stories in which animals speak and serve as symbols for old gods and primordial power. All of this informs Marx's art, which depicts the natural world refracted through the visual language of legend. (That's her piece, The Struggle of the Apathetic Saint, on this RFT's cover.) Birds and snakes tear each other open while halos of moths swirl around them; ruptured fruits burst forth from open wounds, their seeds spilling forth. Her backgrounds are sparse, only a sinuous branch or a cluster of leaves hanging in a white void. Do these endless battles represent old worlds being destroyed or new worlds being born from flesh and blood, and tooth and claw? Her exhibition Unravel: Paintings by Lauren Marx at Hoffman LaChance Contemporary (2713 Sutton Boulevard, Maplewood; www.hoffmanlachancefineart.com) offers you the opportunity to puzzle it out for yourself. Unravel opens with a free reception from 6 to 10 p.m. Friday, December 14. The show continues through January 5, and the gallery is open from noon to 3 p.m. Friday and Saturday. free admission

"Unravel" will include over a dozen watercolor and pen artworks by the nationally, and internationally, exhibited St. Louis artist, Lauren Marx. The artworks depict an interacting universe filled to the brim with animals, plants, fungi, and insects. Using these organisms, Marx is attempting to make her own mythologies of nature and the Cosmos to better illustrate how humans attempt to understand the epic intricacies and mysteries of the Universe. The works will be on view for only three weeks at Hoffman LaChance Contemporary located in Maplewood. Free

Versatile is the key word here; these gentlemen can play anything. As for this concert, it could be jazz - it could be Klezmer. It could be exotic Middle East Music. You might even hear a few old-time country licks. In the hands of these three masters it could be a blend of all this and more. Doors Open at 7:30 p.m. $15 advance and $20 at the door
