First Friday Hit List: FrontSpace, Plenum Space, Pi Gallery, Todd Weiner Gallery, Beggars Table and Czar Bar

  • Sage Dawson’s “Volcano”

Independence Day means a number of Crossroads galleries are taking July 5 off, but there’s no shortage of intriguing shows this First Friday.

At FrontSpace (217 West 18th Street), St. Louis’ Sage Dawson presents her Natural Disasters, a set of colorful, cartographic-style drawings that give expression to burned-out homes and abandoned objects, focusing on the Augusta, Georgia, hilltop neighborhood of Summerville.

Plenum Space (504 East 18th Street), open tonight and then only by appointment, brings Timothy Wagner from St. Louis, where he is involved in community events and helping other artists get their works out there. His multimedia two-dimensional work reflects landscapes of Europe and the American West in unexpected, abstract ways.
