People Seminar puts focus on domestic violence By STEVE HORRELL Of The Edge

Victim will tell her gut-wrenching story

n Jan. 31, 2004, in the midst of a harsh Wisconsin winter, Teri Jendusa-Nicolai was beaten with a baseball bat by her ex-husband and placed in a garbage can. While her two young daughters sat in the front seat, he placed the can on the back of his flatbed pickup and drove to a storage locker where he left her for dead.

Now she is coming to Edwardsville. On Oct. 11, Jendusa-Nicolai will speak at the N.O. Nelson Complex, at 600 Troy Road. The talk – Surviving Domestic Violence – is part of the Third Judicial Circuit Family Violence Prevention Council’s Fifteenth Annual Fall Training and Luncheon. The seminar is free. “I’m thrilled that she’s coming because I think she will be inspiring to people who are going through such abusive relationships,” said Tina Culp, with the Oasis Women’s Center. “A lot of people think that abuse victims just go from one abusive relationship to another,” Culp said. The result, she said, is


Though Jendusa-Nicolai wound up losing her toes, and she miscarried her unborn baby, she survived. Two years ago she told her story to Oprah, and she has shared it with schools and other groups across the country.

that victims often feel shame and humiliation when it happens to them. “But she came from a very loving home. She grew up in a very loving, stable environment,” Culp said. Jendusa-Nicolai’s husband is serving a life sentence for the crime, Culp said. Other speakers at the Oct. 11 event include: Circuit Judge Barbara Crowder; Donya Adkerson, director of Alternative Counseling; Ted Parker, director of Group Interventions; and Det. Sgt. David Vucich, who heads the Computer Crimes Division of the Madison County Sheriff’s Department and the FBI’s Cyber Crimes Task Force. The seminar will be held in the Leclaire Room and will include a presentation of Partners in Peace, the Council’s highest award.

“This award recognizes the commitment of individuals and agencies to eliminating domestic violence in our community. The Council has chosen to highlight those battling animal abuse which is a real problem in family violence situations,” Crowder said in written statement. This year there are three recipients of the Partners in Peace Award recipients: Madison County State’s Attorney Tom Gibbons; Hope Animal Rescue, in Godfrey; and Community Animal Resource, Education and Safety, Inc. Training begins at 8:45 a.m. and concludes at 3:45 p.m. The public is welcome. Breakfast and lunch will be provided free of charge, though registration is requested by contacting coordinator Tina Culp at 465-1978 or by emailing her at tinaculp@

New film opens at the Saint Louis Science Center's OMNIMAX Theater By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge


ake a journey into the lush rainforests of Borneo and across the rugged Kenyan savannah with two teams of experts as they race against time to rescue orphaned endangered animals and return them to their natural habitats in the wild. “Born to be Wild” opens at the Saint Louis Science Center ’s OMNIMAX Theater on Friday, Oct. 5. This inspiring documentary tells the story of orphaned orangutans and elephants and the extraordinary people who rescue and raise them – saving these endangered species one life at a time. Leading the teams are worldrenowned primatologist Dr. Biruté Mary Galdikas in Borneo and celebrated elephant authority Dame Daphne M. Sheldrick in Kenya. They, along with their teams, are working to rescue, rehabilitate and return these animals back to the wild. It is a miraculous story of love, dedication and the remarkable bond between humans and animals. You’ll follow these young orphaned animals on the trip of a lifetime, from their births to their eventual rebirth into the wild. The stunning IMAX film is narrated by Academy-Award winner Morgan Freeman, which for me is reason enough to go see it. It is family-friendly and features all of the stateof-the-art screen and sound quality associated with the Science Center ’s OMNIMAX Theater. The film is opening in conjunction with the Saint Louis Science Center ’s latest exhibition, “Wildlife Rescue: A Journey of Hope,” in Boeing Hall on Oct. 5. This interactive exhibit invites visitors of all ages to take a walk on the

Pictured are two scenes from "Born to be Wild." wild side with activities for children and adults that allow them to explore the innovative ways used to capture, raise and release endangered species back to the wild. Visitors will be able to step into the recovery efforts and “meet” the people who dedicate their lives to saving animals. Interestingly, the exhibit uses the same puppets, costumes and other techniques used to teach young animals essential survival skills. Visitors can experience educational, hands-on activities and displays such as a simulated flight on an ultra-light to guide young whooping cranes along their first migratory route; explore the stories of a wide range of threatened and endangered animals using a touch screen globe; and virtually join the Rapid Response team. They can also test their knowledge about how organizations and individuals can respond to disasters such as oil spills, floods and forest fires. During the exhibition's run, the Science Center will be partnering with St. Louis area organizations - including the Saint Louis Zoo, St. Louis County Wildlife Rescue, the World Bird Sanctuary, Humane Society of Missouri, the Endangered Wolf Center and other animal-related groups - to conduct workshops, lectures and provide rare opportunities to see animals and rescued wildlife firsthand.

People People planner Wash. U. plans speaker series Washington University's Fall Assembly Series speakers offer perspectives on education, immigration, environment, contributions to community and culture.  As the country enters the final phase of an intense political season, the 2012 Assembly Series will feature individuals who bring passion and knowledge concerning issues that affect the way people think and potentially how they will vote. The first three speakers, through powerful narratives, illustrate from different vantage points poverty’s effect on education (a fourth follows in October). In addition to educational advocates, speakers will cover other election-year concerns such as immigration, food development and the environment. Featured speakers will demonstrate some of the best examples of culture in creative ways, while others will demonstrate the amazing contributions each of us can make. All Assembly Series programs are free and open to the public. In those cases when event seating may be limited, information will be provided on the Assembly Series website. Check the website regularly for updates, schedule changes or speaker additions. Monday, Oct. 8: Sarah Vowell 7 p.m., Graham Chapel “An Evening With Sarah Vowell” Sarah Vowell is an extraordinary storyteller. To fans of This American Life radio show, she needs no introduction. From 1996 to 2008, Vowell entertained and enlightened listeners with her

unusual, quirky tales. She brings that same beguiling style to her books, essays and columns, revealing an American history that will never be found in standard texts. In her sixth, most recent book, Unfamiliar Fishes, Vowell presents the history of the 50th state, Hawaii. In addition to Unfamiliar Fishes, her two other bestsellers are The Wordy Shipmates, which portrays the New England Puritans like they have never been portrayed; and Assassination Vacation, a strange, but intriguing road trip to sites dedicated to murdered U.S. presidents. Thursday, Oct. 11: Jeremy Rifkin Noon, Graham Chapel “The Third Industrial Revolution: How Lateral Power is Transforming Energy, the Economy and the World” According to Jeremy Rifkin, the world witnessed the end of the modern era in July 2008, when geopolitical and socioeconomic forces sent the cost of oil soaring to $147 a barrel. Eighteen months later, there was a worldwide financial collapse. How the world got to this critical point, and how to take advantage of the opportunities on the horizon, are the basic themes in Rifkin’s latest book, The Third Industrial Revolution: How Lateral Power is Transforming Energy, the Economy and the World. It is also the title of the Assembly Series’ annual Elliot Stein Lecture in Ethics. Rifkin is the visionary president of the Foundation on Economic Trends, a consultant to the European Union, and author of 19 books exploring the impact of scientific and technological changes on the economy, the workforce, society and the environment. Wednesday, Oct. 17: Graham Meriwether

Time and location to be determined American Meat film viewing and discussion In his film American Meat, inspired by Michael Pollan’s book, The Omnivore’s Dilemma, director/producer Graham Meriwether set out to capture a year in the life of a small farm and, in doing so, had his perspective changed. The result, four-and-a-half years later, is a film that presents the pros and cons of various farm practices and captures the beginning of the small-farm revolution. A showing of the 82-minute film will be followed by a discussion, led by Meriwether, with a panel of experts involved in the food industry, plus a sampling of foods from local and artisan farmers, courtesy of WUSTL Dining Services and Bon Appetit. Monday, Oct. 29: Aron Rodrigue 6 p.m., Umrath Hall Lounge “Reflections on Sephardic Jewries and the Holocaust” Aron Rodrigue’s groundbreaking research on the Sephardic Jewish experience during the Holocaust has put to the rest the widely held notion that Sephardim living in the Balkans and other European lands during the Holocaust were not as badly affected as the Ashkenazi in Eastern Europe. The truth is that they experienced widespread persecution and destruction, just as other Jewish communities under Nazi occupation. Rodrigue specializes in the history and culture of Sephardi and French Jewries as well as modern Jewish history, Jews of modern France, minority identities and the Ottoman Empire.

Following the vision of Circus Flora’s artistic director and cofounder Ivor David Balding and similar productions in New York and San Francisco, the awardwinning creative team of Circus Flora conjured up this brand-new tale, loosely adapted from Arthur Schnitzler ’s La Ronde and set on the mythical Celtic island of TĂ­r na nĂ“g. Under the direction of Cecil MacKinnon, A Celtic Night Circus makes for an extravagant evening of one-ring circus. “I’ve dreamt of a Celtic circus for a long time,â€? said Balding. “The dark, mysterious world of Irish mythology perfectly suits an autumnal, nighttime show. Audiences can expect the same production quality and world-renowned performers that Circus Flora is known for, but the new tent and table seating makes this dinner theater distinctive and romantic.â€?  Featuring such celebrated performers as Sacha Pavlata, Melinda Heywood, The Bertini Family Troupe, Kellin Quinn of the St. Louis Arches, Claire “The Clownâ€? Wedemeyer, and Cecil MacKinnon as Yo-Yo the Compere, A Celtic Night Circus is a cutting-edge, nighttimeonly performance in a cabaret-style atmosphere. Audiences settle in for an exquisite sit-down dinner with dessert and wine – prepared by Michele Coen-Racanelli and Vito Racanelli of Michele C. Catering & Events – as they step back in time to the ancient Emerald Isle. Tickets for A Celtic Night Circus are $175 and include a gourmet dinner, dessert and wine. Tickets go on sale Sept. 4 and are available at 314-534-1111 or A portion of the proceeds from A Celtic Night Circus benefit Circus Flora’s most recent community outreach program, Clowns on Call, which brings the magic of circus to two St. Louis area children’s hospitals: Mercy Children’s Hospital and SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center. A Celtic Night Circus is part of the annual American Arts Experience – St. Louis, a 17-day festival celebrating all mediums of American arts throughout the St. Louis region each October.

Butterly House presents owls and orchids This fall more than 1,000 owl butterflies will take flight during the third annual October Owls and Orchids at the Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House in Faust Park. The Butterfly House will offer extended hours each Tuesday in October so that visitors can see these amazing creatures during their most active hours. October Owls and Orchids is included with regular Butterfly House admission. The Butterfly House’s 8,000square-foot tropical conservatory generally houses 150 owl butterflies which are easily recognized by their chocolate-hued wings and bring yellow markings that resemble an owl eye. Throughout October, there will be more than 10 times the standard number of these butterflies which represent three species: Caligo eurilochus, Caligo atreus and Caligo memnon. In their native Costa Rica, owl butterflies feast on a diet of tree sap or juice from fallen fruit. The Butterfly House will recreate this environment by offering the animals a diet of squashed bananas and fruit.

Each Tuesday visitors get a chance to see the butterflies at twilight when they will fly through the conservatory in search of food and mates. This view of owl butterfly flight is not often available to the public. Visitors ages 12 and older can also take advantage of a special series of 30-minute talks about owl butterflies, their rainforest homes and the butterfly farms that supply the Butterfly House’s animals. The drop-in talks take place from 6:307 during the extended Tuesday hours. There is no talk on Oct. 9. In addition to these drop in talks, the Butterfly House will have some special visitors on Tuesday nights including owls from the World Bird Sanctuary and nocturnal animals from the St. Louis Zoo. Visit for a full schedule. The Butterfly House is located in Faust Park at 15193 Olive Blvd. in Chesterfield, Mo., accessible from Interstate 64 at exit #19B. Admission is $6 for adults, $4.50 for seniors (ages 65 and over) and $4 for children (ages 3 to 12). Children ages 2 and under and Missouri Botanical Garden members are free.

Each one of us can bear fruit When I was a little girl, the farm we lived on had a row of grape vines behind the yard. It was fun to watch the bunches of green grapes grow ‘fatter ’ and finally begin to turn the rich purple shade that meant it was time to pick and eat that juicy fruit. And, of course, it was time for mother to make grape jelly. Perhaps because I had some experience with watching grapes grow, the passages in scripture where Jesus speaks about being the vine and you and me being the branches has always been a favorite of mine. It paints a visual picture that seems easy to understand. That particular part of scripture goes on to say that it takes time for a vine to bear fruit. And, I suppose that also both comforts

Doris Gvillo and challenges me. We can look at that particular part of the scripture suggesting that the vine must grow, develop and mature, as an ‘out’ when we don’t want to do something. Or, we can look at it as a guide to how we can become the person God would have us be. First of all, it is necessary for us to realize that a grape vine does take time to grow and mature. It also takes care as it grows. And, you aren’t going to get grapes immediately. It takes time, care, and growth before there is a harvest. Have you ever thought of our lives in the same way? I think Jesus

was trying to teach us that we too grow and mature. We too will experience times when we feel we are being ‘shaped’ and ‘molded’ in order to become the individual we can be with Jesus as our ‘vine’…the one who nurtures, who strengthens us, who gives us life. Just as a small plant doesn’t produce grapes immediately, we as we grow in our faith begin to grow in ways that change both our lives and the lives of others. And, I guess, we can look at setbacks, or roadblocks along our paths as ways of being ‘pruned’ by our God. I’m sure that seems a bit farfetched, but often what we look at as an obstacle that blocks our desire, becomes, in time, a new and different direction to a still better life.

And if the road of life gets a little too bumpy for you and I at times, we still can rely upon the caretaker to sustain and guide us. Life offers all of us many diverse roads to travel. We make daily decisions that often affect our future. We sometimes fail to see the whole pictures and make the wrong choices. But, because we move on in faith, those failures don’t mean the ‘end’, but rather the option to move in another direction relying upon God to travel with us. Thinking of ourselves as a vine that occasionally needs ‘pruning’ isn’t exactly a thrilling picture. But knowing the one who does the ‘pruning’ brings a sense of security. As we move on in our lives, trusting in a loving God, relying

upon a Savior who gave His all for us, I firmly believe that you and I can grow, develop and bear ‘fruit’. The fruit won’t be ‘grapes’, but the fruits of the spirit…love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility and self control. Now if you and I begin to produce those ‘fruits’ perhaps our lives will be enriched, and we will be a blessing to our family, our church, our community and our world. If it takes a little ‘pruning’ to get there, I’d say it is well worth it especially when we can put all our trust in the ‘one who does the pruning"..

Sacred Heart Church, about a block away, was getting its own house back in order after the Feast of San Gennaro.

The synagogue will hold services at Sacred Heart through Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.

Minnesota gay marriage ban foes air ad, backers tout clergy

Spokeswoman Kate Brickman said the ad, which the campaign plans to eventually broadcast statewide, is the first salvo in a multimilliondollar investment in a series of TV ads that will air continually until Election Day. The amendment, if passed, would strengthen an existing gay marriage ban under state law by adding it to the state constitution. If it is defeated, gay marriage would still be illegal under state law. But Minnesota for Marriage, comprised of religious and socially conservative groups, brought about 40 faith leaders to the Capitol on Tuesday to argue that defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman is important enough to put it permanently in the state's highest document.

Religion briefs Two groups support Indiana teacher fired over in vitro fertilization FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Two national groups are supporting a discrimination lawsuit filed by a former Indiana parochial school teacher who claims she was fired for trying to get pregnant through in vitro fertilization. The American Society for Reproductive Medicine and the American Civil Liberties Union filed friends of the court briefs Monday in support of Emily Herx. Herx filed a federal lawsuit in April against the Roman Catholic Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, claiming she was discriminated against for a disability when her teaching contract wasn't renewed. The Journal Gazette reports Herx suffers from infertility, which is a protected disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act. When diocese officials learned Herx had undergone in vitro fertilization — a treatment banned under Catholic doctrine — they decided not to renew her contract. Herx, who had been a language arts teacher at St. Vincent de Paul School, argues in her lawsuit that her termination violated both the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The Equal Employment Opportunities Commission ruled in her favor in January.

His lawsuit said John Stomp, then his supervisor and now chief executive of the water utility, is devoutly religious, often tried to discuss his beliefs in the workplace and tried to get Chavez to attend his church. A lawyer for the utility says the water authority is reviewing its options.

The Albuquerque Journal reports that James Chavez won an $180,000 award on his claim that his supervisor retaliated against him for the exercise of his First Amendment rights and another $100,000 in punitive damages for the supervisor's conduct.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The two major groups facing off on the proposed constitutional ban on gay marriage tussled over religion Tuesday, as clergy including the state's top Catholic leader called for the amendment's passage while opponents prepared to air a TV commercial featuring a Catholic married couple. The ad is the first from Minnesotans United for All Families, a coalition of gay rights groups, and is scheduled to start airing Tuesday night in the Twin Cities and Duluth.

ARTEAST Madison County's premier art event gets under way on Oct. 20 By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge For the past 15 years the ARTEAST Tour has been bringing the work of area artists out of the studio and into the community for the education and enjoyment of all. This year the tour will celebrate its milestone anniversary by showcasing 120 artists who either live or work in Madison County in 37 studios and exhibit locations that span from

Instead, ARTEAST is more about the process than the finished product. It is a chance to see other people’s spaces, watch them working, ask questions and find out more about that particular artist. “It’s a really intimate window,” said Bostwick. “You get to talk

Edwardsville to Alton. This year ’s ARTEAST will be from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both Saturday, Oct. 20 and Sunday, Oct. 21. The event is free and open to the public. While there are many excellent art fairs happening this autumn, ARTEAST is a truly unique experience that puts the focus on the artist, as well as the artwork. It gives patrons an opportunity to view and purchase a vast assortment of original artwork in a variety of mediums, including collage, painting, ceramics, photography, printmaking, sculpture, glass and digital media. The tour also provides a rare one-of-a-kind glimpse into the workspace, inspiration and techniques of the artists taking part with many giving demonstrations throughout the weekend. Susan Bostwick, coordinator for the ARTEAST Tour and board member at Jacoby Arts Center, said that while the tour has expanded over the last 15 years, the core structure of a studio tour has remained the same. “For artists and the art-loving public, a studio tour is really a unique opportunity and so


with the artist.” One of the great things about ARTEAST is its flexibility. It is not juried and there are no requirements regarding how much artwork an artist is required to submit. Participants who are new to the tour and just beginning to show their work may choose to submit only one piece. Others may decide to use the annual show as an incentive to complete an entire body of work. There is also the option to show as an individual or as part of a group, which can be less intimidating for new artists. Group shows also encourage artists to talk to one another, share ideas and advice. Bostwick said one of the best parts of ARTEAST is seeing new artists taking part. Some are recent graduates just out of college while others are people who may have spent an entire career working in a totally different field that have only now discovered or rediscovered their talents. “Folks for whom the passion has been rekindled. That’s what ARTEAST is all about,” said Bostwick. The self-guided format means

Area businesses and community centers play a major role in the tour with many opening their doors as show sites for artists and their work. This year, Lost Arts & Antiques (www.lostartsandantiques. com) , located in Edwardsville’s historic Wildey Theatre, on North Main Street will have three artists showing their work: Emily Kimmey showing paper crafts; Greg Luttrell with his hand-formed and tooled leather; and Yvonne McCall showing acrylic painting, pastel drawing and paper sculptures. McCall has been participating in the tour for the past 14 years. She said she is excited to be showing her work this year at Lost Arts & Antiques and believes ARTEAST is a great way for artists to learn from each other. “There’s a wealth of resources out there. ARTEAST is wonderful in that way,” said McCall. The Edwardsville Arts Center, located at 6165 Center Grove Road on the campus of Edwardsville High School, is another venue on the tour.

The Arts Edwardsville artist inspired by rivers and oceans By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge



he rushing currents of the Mississippi River and the shimmering colors of the ocean have long been a source of inspiration to Edwardsville artist Yvonne

“When I sit on the bank, I think about where it goes. The river connects to the Gulf, and the Gulf connects to the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and that connects to the rest of the world,” said McCall. “I never get tired of going there because it’s always different…There’s always that element of mystery that I enjoy.” McCall specializes in pastel drawings and acrylic paintings. A large portion of her body of work includes her “tried, true and traditional” pastel drawings, which portray colorful landscapes, seascapes and “bodyscapes”. These bodyscapes portray the contours of the human form, mostly female although some are male, beautifully melded into the land and seascapes. For the past two years, McCall said she has also been experimenting with rice paper sculptures. These involve scrunching up pieces of rice paper and molding it into

her work at her Artist Reception from 6 to 8 p.m. on Oct. 18 at Lost Arts & Antiques, located at 254 N. Main St. in Edwardsville. This reception will be in advance of the annual ARTEAST Tour, which takes place Oct. 20 and 21. McCall is one of three official ARTEAST artists who will be showing their work at Lost Arts & Antiques for this year ’s tour. The shop will also have work from 11 other ARTEAST participants available. For more information about Yvonne McCall, visit or visit her Facebook page.

a quasi three-dimensional female shape, which she then presents in a shadow box frame. McCall thrives on experimentation and said she finds much of her inspiration in nature. She often uses allnatural methods to create her artwork “When I draw, I’m (able) to draw with anything, even the charcoal in my fire pit in my backyard,” she said. Originally from the East Coast, McCall attended the University of Maryland, University of Virginia and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art. In 1969, she moved to this area to attend Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. Additionally, she received her master ’s degree in psychotherapy from Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Mo. For many years she had a stall at the Land of Goshen Community Market in Edwardsville and previously owned and operated the Open Studio in Grafton before moving on to set up an art studio and a private psychotherapy practice in her home. When she isn’t working on her art or seeing therapy clients, McCall also performs with the Banana Bike Brigade of street performers. This group of around 20 artists builds bicycles with sculptures on them, which they ride in local parades and festivals. She also spent time teaching art at the Lahr-Well Academy in Edwardsville where she happened to meet Lisa Ferguson, co-owner of Lost Arts & Antiques, whose children attended the school. McCall said that when she heard Ferguson was opening an art shop in the newly-restored Wildey Theatre, she went to inquire about showing her work. As a result, Yvonne McCall is now being featured as the October Artist of the Month at Lost Arts & Antiques. You can meet McCall and view

The Arts Highland Art in the Park Two-day juried exhibit to feature works by 70 artists By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge


he community of Highland is rich in history and industry but did you know it also has a thriving arts scene? If not, then don’t miss your opportunity to view original works of art at the ninth annual Highland Art in the Park taking place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13 and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 14. This two-day juried exhibit features work by 70 artists from around the St. Louis region in 12 categories, including watercolor, oil/acrylic, clay, glass, drawing/ pastels, fabric/fiber, wood, sculpture, photography, jewelry, graphics/printmaking and mixed media. Artwork will be exhibited and offered for sale in outdoor booths at Lindendale Park. Throughout the weekend, glass makers, plein air painters, wire sculptors and other artists will be holding demonstrations at their booths. In addition, local artist Sarah Walker will be creating a clay sculpture on-site. Upon its completion, the work will be displayed within the City of Highland for the enjoyment of the local community. Jurying for Art in the Park is conducted by a panel of experienced art professionals from around the region. A total of $10,500 cash prizes will be awarded in the 12 categories. This free event is produced by the Highland Arts Council, which promotes the arts in the community through a variety of activities and projects. One way is through the annual Art in the Park event, which showcases local artists while also providing an educational

We have quite a few local people who do various medium in art and so they organized themselves and decided to put one on,” said Lynnette Schuepbach, chairperson of the Highland Art in the Park event and vice president of the Highland Arts Council. Schuepbach said Highland’s reputation as a warm and friendly small town helps to make this event a popular draw for both artists taking part and for visitors.

On the Edge of the Weekend

She said Art in the Park has seen a lot of growth in the past four years and estimated an attendance of approximately 9,000 people in previous years. “We are a relatively small community and you would be surprised at the world class art that we have here in this small hometown atmosphere,” said Schuepbach. “There are affordable things for everyone. It is not out of the reach of the general public to be able to purchase something.” Schuepbach said around a third of the artists are new each year so there’s always a good mix of new artwork in addition to annual favorites.

October 4, 2012

Kathy Gomric of Millstadt is one local artist who always makes a point of attending Highland’s Art in the Park. “They do a top rate quality show. They treat you very well. It’s like you’re going down to visit family,” said Gomric, who specializes in pencil drawings. “Artists really appreciate that when we do an art show.” “I love surrealistic fantasy. Real things in an unreal setting,” she said of her work. “When I take a piece of paper and start drawing, things start coming out of the shadows.” Gomric said she will have a large variety of pieces at the show, including a selection of animal

drawings in addition to her fantasy pieces. One piece is called “I Do” and features two oxen tied together by the rings in their noses. Gomric said she got the idea to draw them after seeing a couple of oxen at a rendezvous. She said it made her think of a married couple. She also liked the farming association, which is a big part of this region. “My drawings are never planned out. Life has taken me to where I am,” she said. The event will also include the popular Dueling Desserts on Sunday. This food-as-art competition and demonstration features artful, edible desserts prepared by chefs and culinary professionals within the bi-state area. As of press time, participating chefs included Pat Jacoby, owner of Patty Cakes in Highland and winner of TLC’s “Ultimate Cake Off” show during Season 2, and Eric Heath, co-owner of ClevelandHeath restaurant in Edwardsville. Vote for your favorite by dropping spare change into the jars and purchase samples of the chefs’ creations. All proceeds are donated to a food pantry operated by Highland Area Christian Services Ministry. Another popular draw is the Kids Kreation area where children can create their own art projects and have their faces painted for free. The Children’s Gallery allows any child up to the age of 18 to purchase artwork donated by exhibiting artists for $5. Music will be provided by Floyd and the Barbers on Saturday. Food and drink will be available throughout the fair. Art in the Park will be held in Lindendale Park located at the corner of Lindenthal Avenue and Park Hill Drive in Highland. The park is handicap accessible and parking is free. To learn more, visit http://www. the_media.htm or call 558-0054.

But even while adjusting to such novel physics, Leo becomes lonely and eventually exhausted with his confinement. Soon, however, he discovers a new source of adventure, hidden within a mysterious suitcase that may, or may not, provide the key to freedom. “The joy of Leo is partly seeing his gravity-defying antics as his world and ours collide,” says Three Weeks: Edinburgh. “Mostly, however, it’s from watching the amazing performance put in by Wegner as he presents an utterly convincing impression of altered gravity, dancing brilliantly and even playing the sax.” Or, as The New York Times puts it, “the audience gets gravity-defying spectacle and the wizard behind the curtain at the same time.” Performances of Leo take place at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 5 and 6.

Art Museum announces dates for opening of East Building The Board of Commissioners of the Saint Louis Art Museum is pleased

to announce the opening dates for its new East Building, designed by renowned British architect Sir David Chipperfield. A free, two-day public festival June 29-30, 2013 will invite the entire community to celebrate the completion of this landmark project. “St. Louisans can look at this accomplishment with pride,” said J. Patrick Mulcahy, President of the Board of Commissioners. “Each of us has taken a role in securing the Saint Louis Art Museum’s place among the great art museums of the world.” The 200,000-square-foot East Building has been sited to the east and south of the Museum’s Main Building, designed in the Beaux Arts style by architect Cass Gilbert and completed for the city’s 1904 World’s Fair. Chipperfield’s design for the new East Building features a dramatic dark, polished concrete façade incorporating Missouri river aggregates, and new galleries and public spaces with skylights and floor-to-ceiling windows that invite and provide views from both inside and outside. “ T h e e x p a n s i o n p ro j e c t i s transformational. Every area of our collection is benefitting from additional gallery space,” said Museum Director Brent R. Benjamin. “The new building will enable a dramatically expanded presentation of the great strengths of the collection, including works of art that have rarely, and in some cases never been on public view.” In addition to providing a 30% increase in the Museum’s gallery and public spaces, the design more than doubles the Museum’s previous parking capacity and includes a 100-seat destination restaurant with sweeping views of Forest Park. The project has also allowed extensive improvements to the South Building’s education spaces and auditorium. The $162 million project was made possible by the largest capital campaign for a cultural institution in St. Louis history. “The success of this project is the result of St. Louisans stepping forward to support their Art Museum

Newton’s Universal Law of Gravity is a pillar of physics, a monument of mathematics, a timeless, unchanging tribute to scientific reasoning.

On Oct. 5 and 6, Edison will present Leo, the newest creation from Berlin’s Circle of Eleven, as part of its fall Ovations Series. Conceived by and starring the acrobatic Tobias Wegner, the surreal one-man-show is “an eye-teasing, grin-inducing, deeply impressive work of sustained absurdist magic” (Time Out New York). The winner of three major awards at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Leo cleverly splits the stage between live performance and video projection. The audience watches both versions at once. Yet the camera is askew: the floor of one room becomes the wall of

and its future,” said John Weil, Chair of the Campaign Steering Committee and President of the Board of Commissioners (2008-2011). Details on the two-day celebration as well as events leading up to the opening are being developed; for more information visit expansion.

The Sheldon to feature works by Arnold Newman The Sheldon Art Galleries opens Arnold Newman: Luminaries of the Twentieth Century in Art, Politics and Culture, Friday, October 5, 2012 in the Gallery of Photography and Bernoudy Gallery of Architecture. Complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres from 5 – 7 p.m.; galleries are open until 9 p.m. for First Fridays in Grand Center.  The exhibition runs through January 19, 2013, is organized by art2art Circulating Exhibitions and is part of the American Arts Experience, St. Louis.  The exhibition is made possible by Chris Kaplan and Barbara and Arthur McDonnell.  Gallery hours are Tuesdays, Noon – 8 p.m.; Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, Noon – 5 p.m.; Saturdays, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. and one hour prior to Sheldon performances and during intermission.  Admission is free.  For more information on the exhibition, visit the galleries’ website at www. Arnold Newman: Luminaries of the Twentieth Century in Art, Politics and Culture features photographs of some of the most innovative minds and personalities that defined a century as seen through the eyes of one of its own: Arnold Newman. 

With over 60 images, this collection features portraits of those who gave rise to the ideas and concepts that have shaped our world, including Pablo Picasso, Piet Mondrian, Marcel Duchamp, Igor Stravinsky, Jackson Pollock, Salvador Dali, Alexander Calder, Ayn Rand, Langston Hughes, Martha Graham, Man Ray, Leonard Bernstein, Georgia O’Keeffe, Andy Warhol, John F. Kennedy, Philip Glass and Woody Allen, among many others. With a career spanning 60 years, Newman’s body of work reads as a roll-call of the most influential names of the 20th century. Arnold Newman (1918-2006) is acknowledged as one of the great masters of photography, and his work has changed the photographic portrait.  Recognized as the “Father of Environmental Portraiture,” Newman was influenced by early photographers like Alfred Stieglitz and the school of Modernism.  He quickly developed his own unique visual style and technique, placing his subjects in the midst of the stuff of their genius.  His portraits at once speak to his talent as a photographer and his unparalleled ability to capture the personality of his subjects. Born on March 3, 1918 in New York City, Newman was raised in Atlantic City, New Jersey and Miami Beach, Florida.  From 1936 – 1938, he studied art at the University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida, where he received a scholarship.  Newman began his career in photography in 1938 working at chain portrait studios in Philadelphia, Baltimore a n d We s t P a l m B e a c h , b u t immediately began working in abstract and documentary photography on his own.

On the Edge of the Weekend



QuickGlance Movie Reviews

“Dredd 3D”

A wickedly dark comic streak breaks up the vivid violence and relentless bleakness of this 3-D incarnation of the cult-favorite British comic series “2000 A.D.” The visceral visuals, shot in 3D by Oscar-winning “Slumdog Millionaire” cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle, feature extreme close-ups and sequences of super-cool slow-motion photography, which wisely are spread sparingly throughout the course of the picture. Karl Urban stars as the stoic Judge Dredd, the baddest bad-ass of them all in a dystopian future where enforcers like him serve as judge, jury and executioner. Dredd is the most fearsome of the judges in the squalid, densely populated Mega City One, with his everpresent helmet and a low, monotone grumble that recalls both Christian Bale’s Batman and Clint Eastwood’s Man With No Name. (For the uninitiated, Dredd is actually much funnier than this description makes him sound; his terse, deadpan responses to the most absurd and depraved situations provoke the biggest laughs.) Olivia Thirlby has a calm yet confident presence as the rookie Judge Anderson, who happens to have been assigned to Dredd for training upon one particularly bloody day. Her psychic abilities make her an asset when things get especially chaotic, and her slightly ethereal nature provides a nice complement to Dredd’s intense groundedness. Dredd and Anderson respond to a triple homicide at the Peach Trees housing complex, a 200-story ghetto ruled by the ruthless prostitute-turned-drug-lord Ma-Ma (Lena Headey). When they take one of her lieutenants (Wood Harris) into custody, Ma-Ma puts the whole place on lockdown and insists she’ll keep it that way until the judges are killed. RATED: R for strong bloody violence, language, drug use and some sexual content. RUNNING TIME: 98 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three stars out of four.

“End of Watch”

You’ve seen the buddy cop movie a million times before, especially the racially mismatched buddy cop movie. You’ve also seen the found-footage movie a million times before, beginning with the precedent-setting “Blair Witch Project” in 1999 and again in recent years following the success of the lowbudget 2007 horror film “Paranormal Activity.” “End of Watch” combines these two approaches: It’s a racially mismatched buddy cop movie in which the cops record their daily activities while on patrol, from mercilessly teasing each other in the squad car between calls to tracking bad guys through the dangerous streets and narrow alleyways of South Central Los Angeles. But admittedly, the found-footage aesthetic infuses the film with both intimacy and vibrancy; it creates the illusion that what we’re watching is unscripted, and so we feel like we don’t know what’s going to happen from one moment to the next. And costars Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena have such tremendous chemistry with each other, they make you want to ride alongside them all day, despite the many perils in store. As they insistently goof on each other in often hilarious fashion, their banter reveals not just an obvious and believable brotherly bond but also the kind of gallows humor necessary to make the horrors of their profession tolerable. After responding to a series of seemingly random calls successfully, the partners find themselves the targets of a stereotypically vicious Mexican street gang, which may have even more dangerous ties south of the border. RATED: R for strong violence, some disturbing images, pervasive language including sexual references and some drug use. RUNNING TIME: 108 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three stars out of four.


On the Edge of the Weekend

“The Perks of Being a Wallflower”

This coming-of-age story, based on the best-selling young adult novel of the same name, features a well-chosen cast, an eclectic music mix and some moments of uncomfortable honesty as well as dreamlike wonder. It’s anchored by strong performances on two ends of the acting spectrum: from Logan Lerman as Charlie, the high-school freshman of the film’s title whose reserved nature can’t hide his obvious intelligence and sweetness, and from Ezra Miller in a showy turn as Patrick, the quick-witted and gay seniorclass clown who takes Patrick under his wing. The girl who completes their little triangle of blissful misfits is the perky but damaged Sam, played by “Harry Potter” star Emma Watson (without a trace of a British accent). Also a senior, Sam is Patrick’s stepsister and Charlie’s dream girl. Directed and written by “Perks” novelist Stephen Chbosky, the film follows these characters and their friends over a school year and all its rituals: football games, holidays, awkward dances and late-night gabfests at the local diner in their typical Pittsburgh suburb. Yes, it feels like formula, right down to rebellious thrill of experimenting with drugs and alcohol and the liberation of experiencing “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” But there’s also a darkness that follows Charlie, even at his happiest, which keeps this movie from turning completely safe and self-satisfied. RATED: PG-13 for mature thematic material, drug and alcohol use, sexual content including references and a fight — all involving teens. RUNNING TIME: 103 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three stars out of four.


Fans of time-travel movies know that much of the fun of the genre comes from obsessing over whether it all makes sense, both while you’re watching it and in long, complicated conversations afterward. What’s smart about “Looper” — and what makes it more compelling than colder sci-fi — is the way writer-director Rian Johnson establishes the machinery of the time-travel concept, then steadily pushes it into the background in favor of exploring his characters and the difficult questions they face. Johnson’s feature debut, 2005’s “Brick,” signaled him as an ambitious filmmaker with a distinctive voice. Here, with his third film, he’s expanded both his scope and his eye for vivid detail. He incorporates a variety of genres and influences, from dystopian, futuristic science fiction and dark comedy to parental drama and romance, with a Wild West shootout and even some “Terminator” thrown in. But he always stays true to his characters in his fully realized world. The year is 2044, and America has fallen into a state of stylish squalor. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, in his darkest role yet, plays Joe, a junkie and former criminal who makes ends meet in this depraved world by working as a “looper,” a hired gun. Time travel hasn’t been invented yet, but it will be 30 years further in the future. A powerful mob boss known as the Rainmaker sends his enemies back in time to have them obliterated with no loose ends. But sometimes, future versions of the loopers themselves show up on the spot; this is known as “closing your own loop,” and it means getting a handsome payout and a set period of 30 more years to live it up. Trouble is, when Joe’s future-self arrives in the form of Bruce Willis, he hesitates, then watches him run off. RATED: R for strong violence, language, some sexuality/

“Pitch Perfect”

Cheeky and snarky but with an infectious energy, this comedy set in the world of competing college a cappella groups makes us fall in love with the very thing it’s making fun of. It’s ridiculous and predictable but also just a ton of fun, so you may as well give up and give into your inner musical theater geek. The debut feature from director Jason Moore (Broadway’s “Avenue Q”) and writer Kay Cannon (“30 Rock”), based on the non-fiction book by Mickey Rapkin, feels like a mash-up of “Glee” and “Revenge of the Nerds,” with a soundtrack ranging from David Guetta and Bruno Mars to The Bangles and Simple Minds. Some performances will make you smile; others will give you chills. And speaking of mash-ups, that’s exactly the genre that forces the film’s female singing group out of its comfort zone of conservative choreography and corny vocal arrangements. Their reluctant catalyst is Beca, an antisocial, aspiring DJ played by Anna Kendrick; this is an amusing irony in contrast with Kendrick’s usually sunny, Type-A screen persona, and given her off-screen Broadway musical bona fides. Freshman Beca is part of a rag-tag class of recruits who join the Barden University Bellas, perky young women who dress like flight attendants, adhere to a rigid set of rules and have supersecret, sorority-style rituals. It’s their goal to knock off the school’s rival guy group and win the national championship. An outrageous Rebel Wilson, whose character nicknamed herself “Fat Amy,” gets many of the film’s best lines, while the wonderfully odd Hana Mae Lee steals her share of scenes in her own quiet way. RATED: PG-13 for sexual material, language and drug references. RUNNING TIME: 112 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three and a half stars out of four.

“Won’t Back Down”

The focus of this save-our-school drama practically assures it will fail to join the ranks of great, or even good, education tales. The movie takes the story out of the classroom and into the halls of bureaucracy, leaving almost every kid behind to center on two plucky parents battling entrenched administrators and union leaders to turn around a failing school. So essentially, it’s a school board meeting. Or school bored. Despite earnest performances from Maggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis as a pair of moms leading the fight, the movie lives down to its bland, us-against-them title with a simple-minded assault on the ills of public schools that lumbers along like a math class droning multiplication tables. Director and co-writer Daniel Barnz gets lost in the red tape of education politics as Gyllenhaal’s Jamie and Davis’ Nona take on the suits in a grass-roots move by parents and teachers to seize control of their kids’ abysmal school. And it’s the children who suffer here. Other than some token scenes involving Jamie and Nona’s kids, the students are mere extras in a drama that spends most of its time prattling on about how the children are what matter most. The movie doesn’t exactly practice what it teaches. RATED: PG for thematic elements and language. RUNNING TIME: 121 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two stars out of four.

This film image released by Open Road Films shows Michael Pena, left, and Jake Gyllenhaal in a scene from "End of Watch."

"End of Watch" gets A for chemistry By CHRISTY LEMIRE Associated Press You've seen the buddy cop movie a million times before, especially the mismatched buddy cop movie. Having the police officers come from different racial backgrounds is an especially tried-and-true element of this genre; it allows them to make fun of each other for the way they talk, the stuff they like, the activities that take up their free time. It's good for a reliable laugh, in theory. You've also seen the found-footage movie a million times before, beginning with the precedent-setting "Blair Witch Project" in 1999 and again in recent years following the success of the low-budget 2007 horror film

"Paranormal Activity." A character carries a camera around everywhere, documenting everything, or maybe a camera just happens to be rolling and it captures secret or strange goings-on we wouldn't be privy to otherwise. It's a conceit that reflects the narcissism of the iPhone generation. Why wouldn't we record everything we do? Everything we do matters. All of this brings us to "End of Watch," which combines these two approaches: It's a racially mismatched buddy cop movie in which the cops record their daily activities while on patrol, from mercilessly teasing each other in the squad car between calls to tracking bad guys through the dangerous streets and narrow alleyways of South Central Los Angeles. But admittedly, the found-footage aesthetic

infuses the film with both intimacy and vibrancy; it creates the illusion that what we're watching is unscripted, and so we feel like we don't know what's going to happen from one moment to the next. And co-stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena have such tremendous chemistry with each other, they make you want to ride alongside them all day, despite the many perils in store. As they insistently goof on each other in often hilarious fashion, their banter reveals not just an obvious and believable brotherly bond but also the kind of gallows humor necessary to make the horrors of their profession tolerable. This is also familiar territory for David Ayer, who has extensively explored the complexities of the LAPD and the crime-infested parts of

town its officers cover in films he's written and co-written ("Training Day," ''Dark Blue," ''S.W.A.T.") or directed ("Harsh Times," ''Street Kings"). Here, he suggests he's developed a deep appreciation for what these men and women do. "End of Watch" isn't a propaganda film by any means — its officers still make some questionable decisions and go looking for trouble where they shouldn't — but the greater good of the department and an unflagging sense of fraternal loyalty are paramount. Gyllenhaal's Brian Taylor and Pena's Mike Zavala obviously care greatly for each other and will always have one another's back, long before weddings and babies give these patrol partners formal opportunities to say so.

"The Words" far from satisfying By ROBERT GRUBAUGH For The Edge CBS has branched into releasing feature films for a couple of years now, but they continue to struggle against established studios for both the quality and desirability of their product. Despite big name stars (Harrison Ford was in one of their movies last year), the films have all fizzled at the box office. Here is the story of the most recent one, a movie I was hoping to be an historical romance. Instead, it was an enigmatic, multi-layered saga that left me scratching my head at show's end. I still don't know which parts were fact and which were fiction. Accordingly, "The Words" was far from the satisfying. The bulk of the narrative of this movie takes place in the recent past.

I bring this up now because multiple stories and time shifts are frequent. I don't want you to get confused. Focus on Bradley Cooper's character, Rory Jansen, as your "through line" and you might make it to the end of this twisty tale. Rory is a normal guy who lives in a tiny apartment with his gorgeous wife, Dora (Zoe Saldana). He's a writer with nominal talent, compassionate drive, and zero luck in finding a publisher willing to take a chance on him or his work. He's frequently turned down, as are 99% of struggling writers out there in the world today. The Earth moves for Rory when he stumbles onto a manuscript called "The Window Tears", a touching and personal story of love and loss following the European theatre of World War II. Despite his noblest intentions, Rory passes off the work

as his own and a thrilled publisher (Ron Rifkin) jumps at the chance to put out what becomes an overnight literary sensation. As with all good things, they aren't often to be long-lasting. Rory's immediate and sustained success following the behemoth of his little secret is amazing. His doubting father (J.K. Simmons) and proud wife are both thrilled at the relative ease he has in making a career for himself after getting over the tough first hurdle. Future books fly off the shelves based on his new household name. A crashing halt finds Rory while he's in the park one day. An old man (Jeremy Irons) stops to pay his respects for the challenging success the new author has found, feeling him out, before revealing that he is the actual creator of "The Window Tears". Flustered,

but unbelieving, Rory gapes as The Old Man tells him that it was a true tale written about his own life as an expatriate soldier in Paris as a younger man (Ben Barnes). His life had gone from an eerily easy time in the war to a torrid love affair with a stunning cafe waitress (Nora Arnezeder) and the subsequent death of the infant child that followed their whirlwind marriage. Rory knows with certainty by this time that his fame is all built upon the yellowed sheaf of pages that this man lost decades before. Where will his life go from here? Just as we're faced with Rory's realizations, The Words pulls back a little bit further to reveal that both storylines - the Jansens' and the old man's - may both be a part of another author's imagination. Clay Hammond (Dennis Quaid) is shown

October 4, 2012

reading aloud from his own novel, "The Words", to a group of interested professionals while making goo-goo eyes with the lovely student (Olivia Wilde) seated front and center. As he schmoozes throughout the room, and subtly starts laying the groundwork for leaving with his newest fan, Clay has a few things to say about the acquisition of fame through writing. I never had a feeling that any of these multiple threads were more "real" than any of the others, but I've been accused of being biased against overlycomplicated movies before. A sense of "c'est la vie" is exactly what this particular movie is all about. ••• "The Words" runs 117 minutes and is rated PG-13 for brief strong language and smoking. I give this film one star out of four.

Dining Delights Don't judge duck too quickly By SARA MOULTON For The Associated Press Duck is one of my favorite foods. No matter how you make it — roasted, braised, the legs confitted, the wings fried, the breasts grilled like a steak — it’s just plain scrumptious. I’m a particular fan of whole slow-roasted duck, a recipe I’ve been perfecting ever since I was a restaurant chef. But that’s hardly a dish to dash off most weeknights, so I save it for special occasions. Duck breasts, however, are a very different story; we probably eat them for dinner once a week at home. Why? There’s the simplicity. They’re so delicious all by themselves, they require almost no dressing up. There’s the health aspects. Eaten without the skin, duck breasts are as lean as white meat chicken or turkey. They also contain more iron per serving than most other poultry, and even some cuts of beef. There’s also the ease. Duck breasts are as easy to cook as steak and can be prepared in 15 to 20 minutes. Duck often is sauced with fruit; humans long ago realized that the acid in fruit acts as a great counterbalance to the richness of the duck. A classic of French cuisine, canard a l’orange (duck with orange sauce) employs bitter oranges, which are not readily available in this country. So for this recipe, I added orange slices to the juice in the sauce. The white pith in the peel provides a bitter edge. The sherry wine vinegar and Dijon mustard are there to offset the sweetness of the orange juice. One whole duck breast — two halves — can feed two to three people. (Each breast weighs from 1 to 1 1/4 pounds.) Cooking it is so simple that my teenaged son learned how to do it the first time I showed him. After it is cooked, while it rests, the duck will give off a delicious liquid that you can either add to the sauce, as in this recipe, or pour over the plain sliced duck breast, if you don’t make a sauce. DUCK BREASTS A L’ORANGE Start to finish: 40 minutes (15 minutes active) Servings: 6 2 whole Peking duck breasts, (4 halves, about 2 to 2 1/2 pounds total)

Kosher salt and ground black pepper 1 medium shallot, minced (about 1/4 cup) 3 small oranges 1 1/2 tablespoons sherry vinegar 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch dissolved in 2 teaspoons water 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard Chopped fresh chives, to garnish Using a very sharp knife, lightly score the skin on each duck breast half in a crisscross pattern. Sprinkle them lightly on all sides with salt and pepper. Heat a large skillet over mediumhigh until hot. Reduce the heat to medium and place the duck breasts, skin side down, in the skillet. Cook for 10 minutes, or until the skin looks very crispy. Do not pour off the fat; the liquid fat in the pan helps to render out the fat in the skin. When the duck skin is crisp, transfer the breasts to a plate. Pour off all but 2 teaspoons of the fat from the pan (reserve it for another use, such as sauteing vegetables). Return the duck to the skillet, skin side up, and cook for another 3 to 5 minutes for medium-rare. Transfer the duck to a clean plate, skin side up. Cover it loosely with foil and let it rest while you make the sauce. Juice 2 1/2 of the oranges (you need about 1/2 cup of juice). Thinly slice the remaining half. Without cleaning the skillet, return it to medium heat and add the shallots. Saute until they are golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the orange juice and simmer until reduced by half. Add the sherry vinegar and simmer 2 minutes. Add the chicken broth and the orange slices and simmer until slightly syrupy, or reduced by about 1/3. Whisk the cornstarch mixture to make sure the cornstarch is dissolved, then whisk it into the sauce. Simmer, whisking for 1 minute. Add the mustard and any juices that have collected in the plate the ducks breasts are on. Season with salt and pepper. Remove and discard the skin from the duck, if desired (separating it by slicing off the skin with a paring knife). Thinly slice the duck and arrange on 6 plates. Spoon some of the sauce with the orange slices over each portion, then sprinkle with chives.
