JUROR: E. Melinda Morrison

As a young woman, her B.A. in Fine Arts from the University of Texas at Tyler took a backseat to the corporate world for many years: advertising exec; graphic designer and art director of her own company; and later corporate and executive recruiter for national technology and digital marketing advertising companies.  Not surprisingly, she was recognized in national competitions for her print design and annual reports while living in Dallas but shortly after her move to Denver in 1994, the satisfied extrovert began to hear from the starving artist.  She says she “felt like her soul was drying up.”  An oil-painting class at the Art Students’ League of Denver rained water on that desert ground.

Over the next five years, Melinda studied painting at the Denver Arts League under the guidance of nationally known and accomplished masters such as Quang Ho, Kim English, Kevin Wechbach and Ron Hicks.  As her passion and skill grew, so did her dream to paint full-time.  She made the leap in 2003 and brought years of corporate skills into the new and intricate dance of a full-time professional art career.  She hasn’t looked back.  Since that decision, Melinda has had multiple one-woman shows in Santa Fe, New Mexico and participated in national and regional shows, and plein air events in the Southwest and Southeast gaining recognition for her figurative paintings.  She is a gifted teacher of workshops and is collected among collectors all across the US.

Recently, Melinda made a move from Colorado back to her home roots in Texas .  Choosing Fort Worth to be near family, Melinda opened her studio in her new home where she continues to paint and teach.

Melinda has been the featured artist in national and regional magazines and newspapers such as the American Art Collector, Southwest Art, Albuquerque Journal, The Santa Fean, and Focus Magazine.  She is a member of the Oil Painters of America, Outdoor Painters Society and the Portrait Society of America.  Melinda is currently represented by Alexandra Stevens Fine Art, Santa Fe, NM; Arts at Denver, Denver, CO; Greenwich House Gallery, Cincinatti, OH and OAGallery, Kirkwood, MO.

SDCC Calling All Female Artists of Color! Affirmations deadline Jan. 25

South Dallas Cultural Center and Urban Chatter invite female/women artists of color to submit work of any medium for this open call exhibition.

The intention of this exhibition is to show work that explores themes of identity, faith, religion, and the soul. Art should take into consideration how these themes connect to finding positivity and peace, and/or address inner tension and struggle as a woman of color. When addressing these themes, consider the repeated disrespect and unfair treatment of women. Think about the continuous micro-aggressions we endure and how they can alter our perceptions of ourselves and our importance in this world. With this psychologic warfare, it is important particularly for women to speak affirmations over our lives. We ask that you analyze and express these affirmations in your preferred medium.

AFFIRMATIONS

Exhibition Dates: February 10 – March 24, 2018

Submission Deadline: January 25, 2018 at 5:00 pm

Artists Notified: January 27, 2018

Delivery of Art: January 30 – February 3, 2018 (South Dallas Cultural Center)
