The Sheldon welcomes spring (it's almost here) with three new exhibitions. The main galleries house Printmaking in St. Louis Now, a deep slice of the work being done by local fine art print presses and printmakers. Evil Prints, Firecracker Press and Pele Prints are all represented in the show, as are 27 individual artists, including Bunny Burson, Lisa Bulawsky, Alicia LaChance and Leslie Laskey. Meanwhile, Frank Trankina: Superheroes and Night Stories takes over the Nancy Spirtas Kranzberg Gallery. The Chicago painter crafts still-life portraits of vintage figurines and toys that often have a subtle narrative element. The Ann Lee and Wilfred Konneker Gallery is reserved for Susan Hacker Stang: reAPPEARANCES. These eight images were made using a toy digital camera with a plastic lens, and capture iconic locations and symbols that reveal a continuing series of human connections across different cultures.
