Treat Your Eyes 

It's a sweet feast of art

We don't think that there will be any tricks in the Bruno David Gallery (3721 Washington Boulevard) on Friday, October 31, but there will definitely be some artful treats on display. From 6 to 9 p.m., the gallery hosts the free opening reception for its November exhibitions, and works by four artists are featured in the new shows. Laura Beard's paintings hang in the main gallery; the strong brushstrokes that cover these large, abstract pieces evoke a sense of depth and texture. Then, in the front room, you'll find the text-heavy works of Martin Brief. His drawings are made up of rows and rows of names that have appeared in Artforum magazine. And over in the project room, Robert Pettus' photographs are on display (and pictured here); 8 min. 20 sec. is a series of images taken throughout the day from the same vantage point, showing differences in light, color and contrast. Plus, the new-media room offers a video by Cherie Sampson called River of Spirit of Life (ice piece), a work that presents the artist in various natural landscapes as she explores both traditional- and modern-art themes. These exhibits all remain on view Wednesday through Saturday through Saturday, November 29. Call 314-531-3030 or visit for more information.
Wednesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Oct. 31. Continues through Nov. 29, 2008
