Sharon Grimes

Sharon Grimes, of Longview, TX is a self taught contemporary abstract artist whose art is a personal expression of life, with all its textures and layers. Inspired by nature and the universe, her work typically features vivid colors and vibrant energy and is consistently characterized by strong composition, contrast, and texture, which demonstrate her remarkable understanding of color and composition. Sharon first became interested in art at a young age. She grew up loving to sketch people, animals and her surroundings. In her early twenties her passion for art blossomed as she was inspired by the many galleries and museums she frequented in London while living abroad for a year.

Grimes is a 2014 Hunting Art Prize finalist. Her work has been described by Sara Eyestone, artist, writer and curator for La Posada de Sante Fe Hotel and Spa, as a “feast for the eyes.” Grimes paintings have been exhibited in group exhibitions including the East Texas Regional Art Exhibit at Longview Museum of Fine Arts, P’s Gallery Regional Art exhibit and a solo exhibit at Classics Furniture and Interiors. Her art is also exhibited in public collections including Tyler Street Bistro, Regions Bank, Longview Museum of Fine Arts and The Women’s Center of East Texas. Her work is in many private collections throughout the United States and has been featured in the Piney Woods Live Magazine and the Longview News Journal.

Sharon Grimes has studied with renowned artist Xianng Zhang, William Kalwick, Jane E Jones and more recently Cheryl McClure of Overton, TX and Cody Hooper of Albuquerque, NM.

Her talent and love of art has led her to direct and conduct courses on the subject of Art as Meditation. She has also been commissioned by the First Lutheran church of Longview, TX to paint a” Spiritual Collection” which still hangs in the church today. She created a collage for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Sierra Leone, Africa as a commemoration to the victims of civil unrest. She has exhibited for several local art groups and taught at the Longview Museum of Fine Arts summer programs. She is a member of the Southwestern Society of Watercolor Artist.

El Corazon exhibition and photographs by Bob Curry at the Bath House Cultural Center

21st annual El Corazón exhibition
2015elcorazon
Bobbie Howard

February 7-March 7, 2015

Reception with the Artists:
Saturday, February 7 (7-9 PM)

The Bath House Cultural Center presents the 21st installment of its popular annual exhibitionEl Corazón, a passionate and eclectic show that features diverse creations inspired by the heart (El Corazón), an important and alluring symbol in art.

It is true that the number of symbols that have moved and inspired artists throughout history is immense and diverse. But it is also true that very few of those symbols have stirred the imagination of artists as passionately as the symbol of the human heart. The image of the heart is a recurring symbol that appears in works of art that date back to antiquity. Some renditions of the heart are present in talismans and amulets from Ancient Egypt. The heart also appears in ornamental patterns surrounding Greek mosaics from the Byzantine era. Roman Catholicism and other religions adapted the symbol of the heart to represent divinity and love through the arts. Other examples of the predominance of the heart in art are the heart-shaped masks by the Kwele people in Africa, the fresco paintings and stone carvings found in Mesoamerican ruins, the choice of the symbol for body tattoos in modern times, the proliferation of heart-inspired illustrations revolving around the celebration of St. Valentine, and all the other many appearances of the heart in contemporary art. All of these interpretations of the heart—love, passion, devotion, protection, disillusion, etc.—are clear evidence that when it comes to a multiplicity of assignation of meaning, the heart is truly a fascinating and enduring symbol.

Jose Vargas, who got the inspiration for the name of the exhibition from a deck of Mexican Loteria cards that had the picture of the heart with its name in Spanish, has curated this exhibition since 1993.

Participating Artists: Diana Almand, Carley Blackman Yonkman, Kim Carothers, Paul Carranza, Gabrielle Castañeda-Pruitt, Vicki Charlotta, J R Compton, Debi Cox, Linda DuBose, Lori Dudley, Jacque Forsher, Rebecca Guy, Robert Hamilton, Bobbie Howard, Jenny Keller, Joanna LaGrone-Headrick, Mike Mahler, Marcela Mihaloglou, Pavlina Panova, Carlos Alberto Quadra, Christina Ramirez, Janet Reynolds, Gail Roberts, Alfredo Rodriguez, Eloy J. Rodriguez, Jose Balmore Salazar Campos, Ruth K. Sanchez, Joe Sarate, Evan Sartin, Kate Schatz, Sabine Senft, Cece Skeith, Pam Stern, Sammy Thomason, Diane Torres, Mary Ann Turner, Jose Vargas, Tina Weger, and Kim Worthington.

Pollinators and Predators: Photographs by Bob Curry
Bob Curry
Bob Curry

Presented at the White Rock Lake Museum (located inside the Bath House Cultural Center).

February 7-April 25, 2015

Reception with the Artist:
Saturday, February 7 (7-9 PM)

The photography exhibition Pollinators and Predators distills an ordinary, often overlooked world into a fearsome visual beauty. With the aid of macro photography and other techniques, Dallas artist Bob Curry captures with extraordinary detail and sensibility images that depict the enchanting environment of small creatures. The artist gives the viewer a chance to have a close encounter with small scale pollinators and predators through a collection of images that display the magnificent grace and beauty of the photographer’s subjects as well as their fantastic interaction with their natural world.

Bob recalls that he started taking pictures when he was ten years of age. His first camera, Bob remembers, was a rummage sale relic. Growing up, he captured images of the life he lived. Those people, places and objects, Bob observes, have acquired a longevity beyond their meaning by becoming flat prisoners on photographic paper.

When asked about his interest in photography and the use of digital equipment, the artist states: “Over the years, I have explored and expressed my creative urge in many media, but I continued to revive my interest in the still photographic image. I am strangely attracted to create art forms that include a mechanical or overtly technical aspect as part of the finished work. I have returned to photography again for just that reason. The digital transformation of image creation has washed away time and tediousness of the analog process.”

JANUARY 5th DEMONSTRATION

donmullins

Don Mullins loves portrait painting because he enjoys the process of turning a blank canvas into a beautiful painted image. Each commission offers a new and exciting challenge – an adventure in art in which the client is a key collaborator. People painted by Don receive not only a one of a kind painting but also a one of a kind experience.

All of Don’s paintings are colorful and professional, but most distinctive is Don’s ability to capture a meaningful gesture or attitude to suggest the personality of the subject. These skills translate seamlessly into other portrait categories. Don paints executive portraits, official portraits, family portraits, children portraits and posthumous portraits.

Don Mullins is a prominent regional artist (Dallas – Fort Worth, North Texas and adjoining states). He has recently expanded his portrait painting reach nationally. Don has a long string of awards and recognition including the Portrait Society of America, Oil Painters of America, The Artist’s Magazine, Salon International, and the Lyme Academy of Fine Art alumni show to name a few. Trained at the prestigious Lyme Academy in Old Lyme, Connecticut, Don combines a proficiency in figurative art with a background in landscape painting.

Personal instructors include Deane Keller, Margaret Kessler, and Carroll Collier. The result of this learning experience is an expertise that allows Don the flexibility of painting the figure in the home, the office, the studio, or in an outdoor setting.

Classic Interpretations; 3 Artists, 3 Visions

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Jeannette Cuevas

Jeannette Cuevas, Pat Waymon and Arthur Guerra join their artistic talents to showcase acrylic, oil and watercolor painting with Texas landscapes and folk along with a variety of other subject matter for the August Public Art Show “Classic Interpretations; 3 Artists – 3 Visions.”

 

Artist Jeannette Cuevas‘ technique of watercolor with pastel over it creates a glow about her paintings that she says “creates a kind of sparkle between the layers of color. This works perfectly when painting images in sunlight and I am often compelled to capture the warmth and vibrance that is illuminated by it.” Her subjects reflect her life as a native Texan as well as the people and places she has encountered along the way. “I am fascinated by the beauty and simplicity of the everyday flow of living and I enjoy trying to capture the warmth and spirit of every aspect of it.”

Pat Waymons Western Enchantment

“Painting is an experience expressed by the artist through one’s wwork into the receptive viewer,” states Pat Waymon who enjoys painting still life and landscapes with oil. Her paintings reflect “her unique ability to capture the natural light in her scenes. Painting on location is one of the artist’s favorite painting experiences. She has painted all across the nation, sharing the beauty created by God.”

Arthur Guerras Pancho_Villa

World War II veteran and Texas native, Arthur Guerra is a master watercolor artist using it and oil as his primary techniques. Having studied at the Pratt Institute in NYC, and the Swedish Royal Academy, he “prefers to create individual works, each depicting a single subject rather that producing multiple works representing a series on one theme. Not only does this result in stunning variations in subject matter, but also in style and medium. Each modulates between techniques to best interpret the subject at hand.”

Join the Keller Public Arts Board at a reception where you can meet these fine artists on Thursday evening, August 14, 2014 from 7 to 9 pm at Keller Town Hall, 1100 Bear Creek Parkway. Enjoy the art along with conversation and refreshments. View the exhibit Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm August 4 to 28, 2014.
