Chris uses the “Alla Prima” method of painting (working wet into wet) and will teach you how to layer with transparent and opaque oils, and how to keep your paints from getting muddy. She will show you how to take an ordinary photograph, and use artistic license to paint from the heart by infusing clean, bold color, loose brush strokes, and beautiful lighting. There will be an emphasis on color mixing, composition, brushwork, and more. Learn to see “Impressionistically,” and explore your ability to “suggest” rather than “render” the subject. Come prepared to have a relaxing, fun-filled learning experience.

Banking on Art- Historic Cumby State Bank Art Exhibition July 15th

HISTORIC CUMBY STATE BANK ART EXHIBIT

FEATURING WORKS BY CURTIS FREDERICK

SATURDAY, JULY 15

3:00 TO 7:00 PM

 

History and the contemporary meet in a celebration of art and architecture at the Historic Cumby State Bank on Saturday, July 15. The 117 year-old bank building, recently renovated and restored, incorporates an abstraction of non-traditional materials and applications all within a historical context – a perfect backdrop to Curtis Frederick’s modern paintings and sculptures.

 

Frederick was born and raised in the Dallas area. Although he showed artistic promise at a young age, events would take Frederick away from his passion for many years. Fortunately, for both Frederick and the community, he has been given another opportunity to pursue his artistic dreams.

 

His paintings reflect the modernist styles of Marc Chagall, Jackson Pollock and William De Kooning.  Chagall’s work is a synthesis of cubism, symbolism and fauvism while Pollock and De Kooning, notable members of a group of abstract expressionists known as the New York School, liberated art from a spatial dimension to the limitless boundaries of expression.  The treatment of the human form and use of unconventional materials by artists such as Henry Moore, Tony Cragg and Doug Jeck are reflected in Frederick’s sculptures.

 

The exhibit is scheduled for Saturday, July 15 from 3 to 7 pm. The Cumby State Bank is located at 201 W. Main St in Cumby, Texas. For more information, please visit http://www.curtisfrederickfineart.com or call 214-240-9605.

Opening Reception for the 2017 Merging Visions Exhibition June 25

MV 2017 logo 300

You are invited to the Opening Reception for the Merging Visions Exhibit, on Sunday, June 25th, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the UNT Lightwell Gallery, at 1201 West Mulberry Street, Denton, TX.  (Please note that this reception has changed from May 21st To JUNE 25th). As an added feature during the reception, 15 of the poets will read one of their poems while an image of the art paired with their work is being shown. The public also is invited to cast a vote for which of the poets and artists created the best ‘pairing.’ A tally of the votes will determine which of the top 3 poets and artists will receive the “People’s Choice Award” for this year.

This exhibition is a joint effort from members of the Visual Arts Society of Texas (VAST) and the Denton Poets’ Assembly (DPA).  It is an exhibition of art paired with poetry. This is the ninth year for this collaborative art and poetry exhibition. This is the first year that the UNT College of Visual Arts and Design has joined as a co-sponsor and host of the event.

This beautiful exhibit contains 44 works of art and 44 poems. Each piece of art is hung beside a poem with which it is paired. Either the artist or the poet initiated the process of ‘pairing’ their works. Various art media, such as paintings, drawings, imaginative fiber or textiles, prints, and photographs, comprise the works from 38 VAST artists. A wide range of poetry from 24 of the DPA poets completes the ‘pairings’ in the exhibit.

To commemorate the works in the exhibit, VAST and the DPA have published a 100 page catalog, entitled “Collections,” in which all of the exhibited works are displayed. This year the Denton Benefit League granted funds to assist VAST in the catalog’s production. A limited number of catalogs will be available for purchase at the reception.

For the past 6 years, volunteers from VAST and DPA have accomplished the remarkable task of producing both an exhibit and its accompany color catalog. The catalog also underscores the basic theme of this endeavor, that collaboration and new perspective benefit everyone. Through it, the artist, the poet, and the viewer continue to share the ‘voice’ these two forms of art lend to each other.

The Denton Public Library and the Special Collections Department in the University of North Texas Libraries have archived single copies of each consecutive issue of the catalog.

 After the reception, those wanting to see the Merging Visions Exhibit can visit the UNT Art Building, 1201 W. Mulberry, Denton, TX, from May 22 through June 27th, during Gallery hours: Monday – Friday, 8:00 am – 10:00pm; Saturday and Sunday, noon – 8:00 pm

Please join us in celebrating these written and visual arts.

“Abstract Perspective: The Art of Kathy Metcalf” June 24

Kathy Metcalf2

Frisco Fine Art welcomes multimedia artist Kathy Metcalf in the exhibit “Abstract Perspective”, on display from June 24 until July 8.  A reception to meet the artist will be held on Saturday, June 24, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.

A native of Dallas, Metcalf says that at the turn of the 21st century, she found herself in fervent need of self-expression. Completely self-taught, she views painting as a “catharsis for the soul”, giving her a sense of creativity, peace and joy. Her work is bold in color and texture and reflects the mood of the moment.

Upcoming Oil Painting Workshops with Chris Brandley

Grand_Finale_in_Venice_Chris_Brandley_web

Coming in July and September (Keller and Grapevine, Texas):

Chris’s workshops include step by step demonstrations, one on one individual easel time, and fun exercises to learn how to loosen up and create bold, colorful paintings. She holds nothing back, and talks through the process and colors during the demo! Chris uses the “Alla Prima” method of painting (working wet into wet) and will teach you how to layer with transparent and opaque oils, and how to keep your paints from getting muddy. She will show you how to take an ordinary photograph, and use artistic license to paint from the heart by infusing clean, bold color, loose brush strokes, and beautiful lighting. There will be an emphasis on color mixing, composition, brushwork, and more. Learn to see “Impressionistically,” and explore your ability to “suggest” rather than “render” the subject. Come prepared to have a relaxing, fun-filled learning experience. This class is for all levels of painting from beginners to advanced!

Woodturning Art Exhibit in June at The Artists Showplace Gallery: Reception June 17

woodturnersjune

The Artists Showplace Gallery is pleased to present the stunning work of nationally recognized woodturners Kevin Bassett and Gary Sanders from Saturday, June 3, to Friday, June 30. A reception to meet the artists will be held on Saturday, June 17, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served.

Kevin Bassett’s interest in the art of woodturning evolved from his extensive study of plant pathology in his home state of Colorado, followed by a distinguished 40-plus-year career as a certified arborist. He describes his work as a collaboration with nature. “Even though I choose the shape, form and utility of a piece of a tree, ultimately the tree has its own voice. I am only a conduit through which the tree is able to speak.”

Gary Sanders, a retired firefighter from Greenville, Texas, began woodturning professionally in 1993. His artwork has been accepted into national juried woodturning exhibitions, and he has work in private collections and museums. Gary teaches locally and has conducted woodturning demonstrations across the country and in Australia. He is known for his finishing techniques and his eye for detail.

A Moment in Cuba | Amy McMurry – Reception June 16

Sun Kissed Card

A Moment in Cuba is McMurry’s work that shares the beauty witnessed during her visit. The exhibit runs through June 24, 2017. Please join us for a complimentary reception to meet the artist on Friday, June 16th from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. Visit www.ElmStreetStudioKeller.com for more information.

“Flow”: Fluid Abstracts by Mary Galbraith opens June 17 at Frisco Fine Art

Mary Galbraith

Frisco Fine Art welcomes local abstract artist Mary Galbraith in the exhibit “Flow”, from June 17 to July 1. A reception to meet the artist will be held on Saturday, June 17, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.

The exhibit will showcase her most recent work: stunning, fluid acrylic paintings that evoke both calm and movement. Galbraith has a solid foundation in nearly every medium. As early as high school, she was participating in painting workshops throughout Texas and became an accomplished photorealistic artist. Now an advocate for experimentation, she broke from the tight constraints of photorealism to explore the looseness and abandon of fluid acrylics.  “Now that I’ve finally stepped out of my self-imposed box, I’ve never felt more free.”
