BWW Reviews: Circus Flora's Delightful Production: THE PAWN
by Chris Gibson - Jun 9, 2014

Here in St. Louis we should never take for granted the fact that we have our very own circus. Of course, I'm talking about Circus Flora, the one ring big top that you'll find around this time every year situated just behind Powell Symphony Hall. And, this is a circus with a great deal of thought behind it. A theme is chosen, the book is written, acts are put together with an original score (composers Miriam Cutler and Janine Del'Arte), and a show is presented that combines all these elements in grand fashion. Take your family to CIRCUS FLORA'S THE PAWN (through June 22, 2014) and they will not be disappointed! (more...)

Laura Rathe Fine Art Announces a Group Show: 'Check Mate'
by BWW News Desk - Jun 14, 2014

Laura Rathe Fine Art Presents Check Mate, a group show in Houston, TX Laura Rathe Fine Art is pleased to present Check Mate, a group exhibition featuring Gil Bruvel, with an opening on Saturday, July 12, 2014, from 6 - 9pm. The Check Mate collection will be on view through August 29, 2014. Gil Bruvel's new series of steel Chess sculptures will debut in the Check Mate group show. These unique works convey the art of war and strategy through the game of Chess. Bruvel's goal, by designing a thematic Chess set, was to increase the sense of opposition between the two sides. As the design progressed, he also experienced a sense of fusion and complementarity between the two opposite sides. This theme relates to the evolution of styles and conceptions we have about what art means. On one side, the world is perceived and expressed with recognizable elements we can reference to perceived reality - the representational world. On the other side, the world as we conceptualize it using arbitrary elements, is expressed with how we value the contexts in which we understand it - the abstract world. Some elements may still be recognizable but they are just there to suggest and let the viewer form their own conclusions. Throughout his career, Bruvel has focused his energy on creating highly detailed surreal, representational work. Recently, he has challenged his artistic abilities by venturing into the world of the abstract. The creation of the Chess set represents the challenge of meshing the past with the present genres and the pursuit of continuing to push the envelope in his creative journey. Other artists exhibited include Tony Magar, Mel DeWees, Meredith Pardue, Roi James, Matt Devine, Chris Martin, Katherine Houston, and Michael Scultheis, among others. The majority of these artists are established abstract expressionists working in oil, acrylic, encaustic, steel, photography and other mixed media. About Laura Rathe Fine Art Formally established in 1998, Laura Rathe Fine Art represents a dynamic artist roster including emerging, mid-career, as well as blue-chip contemporary artists. With a primary focus on abstract expressionist painters, LRFA also represents sculptors, mixed media artists, and photographers. Located in the heart of the gallery and design districts of Houston and Dallas, Texas, LRFA provides art consultation services, hosts exhibitions and actively participates in notable art fairs. LRFA artists have been acquired into important private collections, as well as world-renowned corporate art collections, including BBVA Compass and HKS Architects Headquarters. (more...)
