Opening Reception Nov. 18 for STALLMAN / MARS : ‘Iconic Patterns’

Dallas Design District gallery, Laura Rathe Fine Art, presents the exhibition, ‘Iconic Patterns,’ featuring new works by acclaimed artist duo, Stallman, and contemporary mixed media artist, Robert Mars, with an opening reception on Saturday, November 18th from 5-8pm.

DALLAS DESIGN DISTRICT / 1130 Dragon St., Suite 130 / Dallas, TX 75207 / 214.761.2000

http://www.laurarathe.com/

Though their work differs greatly in terms of technique, subject, and medium, Stallman and Mars share an interest in creating dynamic compositions that incorporate energetic forms, patterns, and colors. LRFA’s first exhibition featuring the work of Robert Mars, ‘Iconic Patterns,’ will be on view through December 30, 2017.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Based in the Pacific Northwest, artists Stephen Stum and Jason Hallman (collectively known as Stallman) meld their creative energies to produce mesmerizing works that fall somewhere between the categories of painting and sculpture. Since 2012, they have collaborated on their Canvas on Edge series, which molds painted strips of canvas into compositions that shift in color and form depending on the viewer’s perspective. The strips’ painted edges gather to create elevated line drawings that recall cellular processes and organic forms drawn from nature.

Represented in five states, Stallman have exhibited their work in such far-flung cities as New York, Seattle, Chicago, Miami, and Laguna Beach, California. Recently awarded the Carol Duke Artist Award of Excellence from the Bellevue Art Museum ARTSfair, their work has also been featured in many publications, including Vanguard Seattle, My Modern Met, LUXE Interiors + Design, and Fahrenheit magazine.

Robert Mars’s mixed media works layer vintage paper ephemera, acrylic polymer image transfers, and hand-painted elements to reveal striking contemporary visions of America’s past. Chronicling the artist’s fascination with 50s and 60s American iconography, Mars’s work depicts popular consumer goods and architectural and mechanical icons of the era, alongside striking portraits of bygone celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, and Audrey Hepburn. Mars’s careful manipulation of color, text, and symbol transform these age-old icons into images that resonate with renewed contemporary vitality.

A graduate of Parsons School of Design and currently based in Connecticut, Robert Mars has exhibited his work worldwide in such cities as Munich, Tokyo, Amsterdam, London, New York, Los Angeles, and Paris. In 2016 the Evansville Museum of Art in Indiana hosted a solo exhibition of his work, which is also permanently held in the collections of the Coral Springs Museum of Art, the International Museum of Collage, and the New Bedford Art Museum.

One-Day Workshop in Classical Drawing Techniques at The Society of Figurative Arts

Drawing Fundamentals – The Block In

Date: Sunday, October 22nd

Time: 10am – 4pm

Studio: 3306 Wiley Post, Carrollton, Tx. Suite 104

Cost: $75

This one-day workshop will focus on one of the most fundamental aspects of drawing – the block-in. We will show you a series of exercises rooted in tradition that will help you achieve a strong start to build on. We will start by doing short block-ins from various Bargue plates and gradually extend the time allotted to each one. The fundamental principles to be stressed are gesture, proportion, shape accuracy and abstracting from nature. Visual examples and demos will be provided to help students gain a better idea of how to approach this important skill. Students who are comfortable with the Bargue plates will be able to move on to block-ins from the cast.

Materials needed:

Drawing pad, 18 x24 (Strathmore 400 series, for example)

Graphite pencils (range from 6B to 6H)

Kneaded eraser

To enroll, go to: http://tsofa.com/index.php?page=enrollment or call 972-679-1625 for more info.

THANK ART: A Pop Up Show About Artistic Gratitude call for artists

THANK ART: A Pop Up Show About Artistic Gratitude

Webpage for the show is at http://www.thankart.tumblr.com. The deadline for entering is November 1, 2017. The exhibition runs from November 6 to November 12 2017 with a reception on November 10, 2017.

Art has been an experience that has encompassed many meanings for me. Inspiration, escape, freedom, chance and dreams. I’m thankful for art for its diverse nature and how its significance has adapted to me as I’ve progressed through life.

Why do you THANK ART?

I’m inviting artists to share their interpretation of the theme THANK ART for an upcoming fall pop up show. Artists with work that meditates on the appreciation of the creative process in its various forms and guises are encouraged to submit. The expression of artistic gratitude in the work does not have to be explicit and can be defined in loose terms.

For instance, thankfulness for an artwork can be expressed because of its emotional experience or thankfulness can be expressed because the process of making a work offered some relief. There are no limits to your depiction of gratitude.

The exhibition will be on view at Dr. Jeckyll’s Beer Lab on 2420 West Park Row, Pantego, TX 76013.

If you’re interested in exhibiting please send three images of your work along with a short artist’s statement that describes how your relates to the theme of THANK ART TO Kim at submitarttokim@gmail.com.

Slideshow with photographs from American National parks Oct. 14

National State Park Slide show: Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017  from 7 pm to 8 pm

This slideshow shows one man’s use of slide film as a medium, his love of nature and in particular Our National Park System. One of very few people who have visited and photographed all the National Parks in the continental United State during a time when slide film and in particular Kodak’s Kodachrome slide film was king.

Location: Blue House Too, 934 Watters Creek Blvd, Allen, TX 75013

David J. Stana: “My journey through life has been with an instrument to record the beauty of what I see on earth. I endeavor to capture the essence of what I see in its purest form and offer it as my interpretation for others to enjoy.”

David’s multi-image slide show is produced to present his photography with what was then State of the Art equipment in slide shows, it event had an actual computer to control the images. This has become a lost art form since slides have been for the most part replaced with digital imaging.

David J. Stana, Cr. Photog., CPP

David J. Stana has a very diverse background in photography as well as the audio/visual field including Producer, Director, Photographer, Cinematographer & Staging Director. His passion for photography and image capture started with his love of nature. For more than four decades starting in 1975 he traveled extensively throughout the National Parks. During that time he had photographed all the National Parks in the continental United States and Hawaii. The images in this collection are from film (slides) and are not Photoshop creations. The process includes high resolution slide transfer (scanning), archival pigment printing by Nash Editions, and high quality framing using museum glass. The intent of each step in the process was to keep the images as close as possible to what David saw when first looking at the image through his camera viewfinder.

David owns a diverse photography business that focuses on traditional studio portraits & commercial photography, including architecture. He has been honored with numerous international awards including a number of international Telly Awards, Matrix Awards, Nikon Response and Recognition Awards, “Flight” (was displayed in the New York Museum of Modern Art) Color Camera Club Awards and PPA – Professional Photographers of America merits. His commercial clients include a list of the Fortune 500 such as AT&T, Metropolitan Life, Alcoa, 84 Lumber, Cornell University, Snap-On-Tools, UPMC, National Council of Community Hospitals, The Coleman Company, Neiman Marcus & Raytheon to name a few.

Art Exhibit: America in Kodachrome

America in Kodachrome” is about the days when slide film photography may have been at its best and image capture was at its purest before the influence of computers. What you saw through the viewfinder was what you got and the only real manipulation of the image was with camera exposure. Sure you had focus and depth of field and different ISO films but shooting slides was very limited on the latitude the film could handle. …and no control during the processing of the image.

Location:

Blue House Too ArtSpace

934 Watters Creek Blvd, Allen, Texas 75013

This exhibit is about one man’s use of slide film as a medium, his love of nature and in particular Our National Park System. One of very few people who have visited and photographed all the National Parks in the continental United State during a time when slide film and in particular Kodak’s Kodachrome slide film was king. David J. Stana: “My journey through life has been with an instrument to record the beauty of what I see on earth. I endeavor to capture the essence of what I see in its purest form and offer it as my interpretation for others to enjoy.”

Beyond the exhibited images on the walls David will be exhibiting several Multi-Image slide shows produced to present his photography starting with his earliest presentation entitled “Moods” that was produced over 40 years ago and with what was then State of the Art equipment in slide shows with an actual computer to control the images. This has become a lost art form since slides have been for the most part replaced with digital imaging and the slide show is now a video on You-Tube.

Come and see what media was like before MTV and smart phones and see an exhibit of unaltered images directly out of the camera and learn what shooting slide film was all about!!

Moments, Martin Lam Nguyen Solo opening Oct. 5 at UD’s Haggerty Gallery

The Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery is honored to present Moments, a solo show by Martin Lam Nguyen. Please join us for either the opening reception on October 5, 6-8 p.m. or our closing reception November 3, 6-8 p.m. The exhibition runs through from October 5, to November 5, 2017.

A devoted priest, long serving educator, and accomplished artist, Nguyen brings the many parts of his life together in the studio. Meditation and prayer join the rhythmic stroke of intricate line work in drawings and lessons from a life marred by war mixed together with joyful religious service, like ink and water on paper, with the desire to teach and inspire.

Martin Lam Nguyen was born in Vietnam; he arrived in America as a refugee in 1979 and became a priest of the Congregation of the Holy Cross a decade later. He joined the art department of the University of Notre Dame in 1995 and continues there as Associate Professor of the Department of Art, Art History and Design.

Moments brings together three of Nguyen’s major multi-year projects; Mountain Waits, Lucie, and Painting the Social Network for the first time. Encompassing every inch of the gallery, in an impressive installation, thousands of cataloged moments are laid out in a grid format in each project. The result is abounding repetition and yet individuality, as each painted or drawn image, like the moments they depict, reads as unique and personal.

However, Nguyen’s work is less about him and more about us, the viewer, as he creates a space for us to contemplate the moments of our own lives while viewing his work in the present moment.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The visual arts project is a labor of love by our Executive Producer Dana Schultes, who selects and programs work on top of leading our organization. Our business is theatre, but we believe that since we have the ability and the venue necessary to help lift up local visual artists, we should do so. And we love being able to support local artists!

That being said, please note that our theatre and cafe customers are our first order if business. We cannot make arrangements for special viewings during the 1.5 hours prior to each show that we offer dinner service. Artist receptions are held at the show opening following performances or on non-show nights at the discretion of cafe and theatre management. We do our best to make everyone’s vision a reality. When special requests are made, we will do our best to make it happen. However, compromise and understanding ​are key. In other words, we are in the business of drama, but we prefer to keep it on the stage where it belongs.

We love our local arts community and are honored and humbled to have the space to be able to feature their wonderful work. Thank you for all you contribute to our region.

best, Marketing Director Jen
