Your Private Collection Art Gallery 10th Year Anniversary featuring Soon Y Warren on July 29

Your Private Collection Art Gallery

Celebrates Ten Years of Art and Success

Featuring Artist Soon Y Warren

You Are Invited

July 29 5-8pm

In 2007, Linda Watkins opened Your Private Collection Art Gallery in an 80-year-old Granbury house boasting five rooms of unique, original artworks.  A New Orleans style courtyard garden provided a great gathering spot for art events and wine tastings.

Watkins, original owner, founded the gallery to introduce the unique art of Stacey Watkins Martin, her daughter and current owner—a new medium she invented using her knowledge of science to incorporate minerals, resin, metals and fused glass to create works of glow-in-the-dark fantasy.                        

Ten years later, the gallery is still a premier destination in Granbury.  Located on the Historic Square on Houston Street since 2008, Your Private Collection displays not only regional talent; but also, international and national artists bringing collectors to events and shows. The three room gallery now represents over 50 artists and has been stated as “a must see” by Southern Living Magazine.                                                    

“Our artists display a large variety of mediums,” said Watkins. “Since art preference is different for each individual, the gallery can work one-on-one with the artists to fill any needs a client might have.” 

Sharon Markwardt, international, contemporary Western artist agrees. “The owners and staff at Your Private Collection know art, and have assembled an amazing variety of high quality art in many styles.”  Markwardt, with Your Private Collection since 2008, said the “awesome” staff makes all the difference.  “They have always treated me well, and I love the way they interact with clients, both long-standing and potential collectors.”

Award-winning Watercolorist, Bob Cook, said he is “proud’ to hang his work with

“..the best variety of artists.” A long-time artist at Your Private Collection, Cook values the professional staff and how much they enjoy promoting his work.

Chuck Roach, acrylic, Western artist, also appreciates this “..professionally run gallery with experienced salespeople.  I am honored to be in a gallery that promotes not just Western art, but art in general.  Stacey has an eye for talent!”   

Your Private Collection Art Gallery commemorates its tenth anniversary with a reception for Soon Y Warren known for detail and luminescence in her work.  Warren, one of the gallery’s original artists, is not only a top, national and international watercolorist, but is also published and highly awarded.  The gallery houses the single largest collection of her work.

                                             

                                             Soon Y Warren

 

Your Private Collection Art Gallery continues to flourish with its historical location in a top-destination, small town—Granbury, Texas.  It continues to draw renowned artists including Soon Y Warren, Sharon Markwardt, Bob Cook, Stacey Watkins, Aaron Thane Tate and Randy Meador.  As well, the gallery frequently introduces new artists and art and hosts events like monthly, Last Saturday Gallery Nights.

Perhaps the most important reason for its success is the combination of art with fun and personal relationships between the artists, clients and guests—the feel is bright, friendly and positive. 

Galleries of Granbury—Last Saturday Gallery Night

Because of continuing construction, please use parking lots across from Langdon Center on Pearl St or the parking lot at Library/Shanley House.  A narrated tram is running every 15 minutes from locations from 5:30-7:30pm.  Other venues with met-the-artists include Artefactz, D’Vine Wine, Against the Grain, Dora Langdon Center and LGAA Shanley House.

Black and White & Read all Over opens July 27 at Kettle Art

Kettle Art proudly presents ‘Black & White and Read all Over’ featuring Illustrators Brad Albright, William Bubba’ Flint and Miguel ‘Miggy’ Aguilar. Illustrations are everywhere. In the papers, on the web, on products, on billboards and more. They instruct, amuse, infuriate, tell us what to buy /where to go, and overall are an integral part of our lives. The three artists we present come from three diverse areas of illustration and essentially cover all previously mentioned aspects of living in America.

This show runs through August 19, 2017

About the Artists

Brad Albright is a multidisciplinary artist, illustrator, and merch designer working with leading licenses in music, entertainment, and publishing. Guided by a lifelong love of drawing, his specialties include album cover illustration and 3D poster design for retro red/blue glasses. As inspired by music, comics, literature and movies, his line-art illustrations often revel in science fiction, horror, and Wild West genres. The pieces on display include gig posters, personal illustrations, and pop-culture inspired poster art, most of which are presented in 3D with provided glasses.

William Bubba Flint recieved his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Southern Methodist University. His Editorial Cartoons appear in The Dallas Morning News, The Dallas Cowboys Star magazine, The Katy Trail Weekly, The White Rock Lake Weekly, Park Cities People, Preston Hollow People and Amusement Today. Flint has also illustrated six children books. Artist Statement: I describe my work as Future Paintings of the Past! I find inspiration from all areas of Pop Culture. Childhood memories constantly creep into my paintings. With a nod to Pop Surrealism, Lowbrow and Underground, I want the paintings to give a quick glimpse into a universe that almost makes you smile…

Miguel “Miggy” Aguilar has been part of the Dallas underground since the early 2000’s when he introduced his first three comic books under the title of “Mr. Zombie”. After that he started showing his lowbrow artwork at bars around the Deep Ellum area. He was invited to show in his first gallery show at Nine Eyes Gallery in the winter of 2005 where he met the artist & future gallery owner Frank Campagna of the great Kettle Art. In addition to the lowbrow ink style work that has made him a regular feature at the gallery he has continued to work in the comic book medium, done fliers for bands and is now showing interest as a fine art painter, some of which will be featured in this show.

The first ever Texas Latino Comic Con July 29 at the Latino Cultural Center

The first ever Texas Latino Comic Con Spotlights Latino Talent

Texas Latino Comic Con

Dallas, Texas-  Our stories matter. The first ever Texas Latino Comic Con is coming to Dallas Texas July 29th.  In collaboration with the Latino Cultural Center of Dallas, this comic convention is a first of its kind in Texas highlighting Latino artists, writers and creators in the comic book community. The convention will feature local artistic talent, a Latino character centered cosplay contest, and special guests. The event will be free for the public. In conjunction with Dusk and Rio Bravo Comics we are excited announce Texas Latino Comic Con.  Our stories matter!

One of our first guest announcements is the creator of El Peso Hero, Hector Rodriguez.  El Peso Hero has been one the most internationally talked about Latino superhero in decades.  With modern social issues such immigration, human trafficking and institutional corruption, El Peso Hero has garnered attention and praise from the Latino community and been featured on Univision, CNN, Telemundo, Fusion, CW, La Reforma, PRI The World and countless of other media sites worldwide. It has even won the prestigious Emmy Award for best news story by Univision news anchor Angel Pedrero and has won an award by the Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce for most innovative book. Among the appeal of the comic book is that El Peso Hero speaks only Spanish. All of the other characters in the comic book speak English. It is important to portray rich diversity.

The other guest announcement is Eliamaria M. Crawford, originally of San Angelo, Texas.  Starting at a very young age Elia always had a passion.  First in high school started drawing stick figure doodles as her primary go- and eventually started, what-was, her Elia in a Box Webcomic then. She also had the privilege of drawing comics for her high school newspaper, the Campus Corral. Then in college she drew comics for the university newspaper, The Shorthorn, and started doing custom & freelance work. That is when Elia in a Box Comics, the brand, took off and she started doing cool projects from custom wedding graphics, to convention poster art, and even contributing comics to many zines and projects.  From college she eventually did the hit book “Humans Really Irritate Me,” a collection of quotes of UTA’s Dr Allan Saxe, drawn in Elia’s unique style.

lindamood4JUROR: Patsy Lindamood

Learning from from nationally and internationally recognized pastelists and wildlife artists, Patsy has emerged with a style uniquely her own, marked by strong, colorful, yet infinitely detailed compositions in a representational style.  She has become a nationally award winning artist in her own right.

Her work derives from research and observation of creatures in their environments, in the wild whenever possible. Trips to state and national parks have provided great adventure and abundant inspiration. Wildlife also regularly visit her property in Huntsville, and it is not unusual to pass deer or roadrunners on her weekday routes.

Working in pastel, graphite, colored pencil, and watercolor or watercolor pencil, Lindamood’s paintings are life-size, bold with color, rich with texture, and bursting with presence. She frequently paints on cradled artist boards, Pastelboard or Mylar.

For more about Patsy and her art, see her website at http://www.lindamoodfineart.com.

RSVP to Short Story Series

About the Artist: http://www.ro2art.com/carol-trice-short-story-series.html/

Carol Trice’s textile paintings evoke a familiar sensation of connectedness, illustrating the intersections and ties that are found in interpersonal relationships. Her bold, thick lines are emblematic of the fleeting and the sometimes intense interactions that people encounter on a regular basis. Her works are made using dense black thread that intersects and laces along a gridded background. Some of the pieces are methodical while others are disorderly, mimicking the experience of human interaction, whether brief or prolonged. Carol Trice’s pieces are exquisitely representative of daily colloquies.

Tuesday Evenings at the Modern FILMS Presents a selection from Doug Aitken: Electric Earth – July 25

 

July 25; 7 pm

A screening of filmic works by Doug Aitken as related to Doug Aitken: Electric Earth, approximately 2 hrs.

Aitken belongs to a generation of artists such as Philippe Parreno, Pierre Huyghe and Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, for whom film functions as a medium for experience, and exists as form as much as subject matter.
Philippe Vergne, “You Are Here and So Am I,” Doug Aitken: Electric Earth 

Doug Aitken is an American artist and filmmaker. Defying definitions of genre, he explores every medium from film and installations to architectural innovations. Aitken is at the frontier of 21st-century communication. Utilizing a wide array of artistic approaches, his eye leads us into a world where time, space, and memory are fluid concepts.
This special evening is an opportunity to showcase various filmic works included inDoug Aitken: Electric Earth, as well as more recent work, including the filmic documentation of Underwater Pavilions, Aitken’s ambitious, large-scale installation produced by Parley for the Oceans and presented in partnership with The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. His most recent project, Mirage, is an artwork that distills the recognizable structure of a house into the essence of its form and allows it to reflect, merge with, and disappear into the landscape.
Doug Aitken, Black Mirror (still), 2011, video installation with three channels of video (color, sound), three monitors, freestanding room, mirrors, 13:20 minutes/loop, installation dimensions variable

A screening of filmic works by Doug Aitken as related to Doug Aitken: Electric Earth, approximately 2 hrs.

WestBend Debuts Public Art Program with Snap & Seek July 20

Collection of 26 pieces is one of the largest concentrations of public art in Fort Worth

  

FORT WORTH, Texas (July 11, 2017) – Selfies and shares abound with the latest wave of public art at WestBend, Trademark Property Co.’s University District mixed-use development. Twelve new works splashed across the property expand its already impressive public art program, bringing added color, character and a unique spirit to the property.

 

The new works showcase a variety of style and medium by both local and national artists, including 10 murals by Dallas-based artist Kyle Steed, a site-specific “LOVE” sculpture by San Francisco artist Laura Kimpton, and a mural by local artist Lauren Childs. These join prior works by local artist Devon Nowlin and a rotating photography exhibit from the Amon Carter Museum of American Art.

 

“When it comes to retail places today, it’s all about creating experiences. Carefully curated public art activates a space and makes it unique, all while contributing to the vibe of the neighborhood and the city,” said Terry Montesi, CEO, Trademark Property Co. “Most importantly, art is to be enjoyed. We invite our guests to interact with the works and share them with one another, and make them a part of their life. We want WestBend to be an extension of the world-class Fort Worth Arts District.”

 

New art at WestBend includes:

·         Kyle Steed:  Dallas-based artist Kyle Steed makes his Fort Worth debut with 10 WestBend murals that include quotes and references to famous Texans. There are a total of nine murals in the parking garage, consisting of five elevator vestibule works; three small works in stairwells, including a Willie Nelson quote, and Happy Trails mural on the exit wall; as well as a Patsy Cline quote near Drybar.

·         Laura Kimpton: Kimpton’s steel “LOVE” sculpture is celebratory and optimistic in spirit, sending a positive message to WestBend visitors. Located in the green space near Woodhouse Day Spa, the sculpture includes hundreds of programmable LED lights that change color at night. The piece is a part of Kimpton’s Monumental World Series that began at the 2009 Burning Man Festival and has since had permanent installations at the Apple store in San Francisco’s Union Square and Santa Rosa, Calif.; Las Vegas and Reno, Nevada; and additional appearances at dozens of art and music festivals across the globe.

·         Lauren Childs: Childs’ first mural, “The Little Things,” depicts succulents with vibrant color and texture, bordering on sculptural, and is located between Woodhouse Day Spa and CorePower Yoga. An advocate for local art, Childs co-founded Fort Works Art, which began as an event-based pop-up organization and has now opened its first permanent gallery space in the Cultural District in Fort Worth.  

In addition to these new works, WestBend also recently unveiled the second iteration in its Amon Carter Museum of American Art series. Thanks to a partnership with the Amon Carter, WestBend is home to a rotating selection of nine, 4-by-6-foot reproductions from the museum’s renowned photography collection, presented on backlit film and displayed in lightboxes. Each iteration of the series is curated by the Amon Carter and is on display at WestBend for six-month intervals. The second iteration launched this month and will be on display through the end of the year.

 

Other public art at WestBend includes five photographic murals by Fort Worth artist and TCU graduate, Devon Nowlin.  The murals, which face the Trinity River and Trinity River Trails and Tom Thumb, capture the shopping and dining experience, health and fitness, and the natural surroundings of WestBend.

 

To celebrate its public art program, WestBend will host a #WestBendLove Snap & Seek on Thursday, July 20 at 7 p.m. with artists Lauren Childs, Devon Nowlin and an Instagram takeover by Kyle Steed. The event kicks off on Level 6, the top floor of the free parking garage located behind Tyler’s, and the first 50 guests to check in will receive a free swag bag illustrated by Steed. #WestBendLove will feature a polaroid scavenger hunt, frozen treats, drinks from HG Sply Co., surprises, and the opportunity to meet the artists in attendances. To RSVP, click here.

 

WestBend’s public art is one aspect of a property redevelopment focused on evolving the University retail district by delivering a walkable critical mass of retail and restaurants, urban-style pedestrian experiences, and Trinity River/Trinity Trails connectivity. In addition to public art, the redevelopment includes newretail, trailside restaurants, office space, and property amenities. Bartaco and Warby Parker recently announced they will open new locations at the property.

 

The redevelopment will continue with phase II, which will include a property expansion onto the adjacent 3.5-acre tract immediately south of WestBend. Conceptual planning is underway to develop additional mixed-use space featuring added ground floor retail, a boutique hotel, and multi-family units.

 

At full build-out, WestBend will include 670,000 square feet of walkable urban retail, restaurant, office, multi-family, and hospitality space.
