2017 IAA Photography Exhibition Preview Gallery

This is the first year that Irving Art Association has sponsored a juried exhibition devoted solely to photography. We received a great response to our call and are proud to announce that work from 44 photographers from the Dallas-Fort Worth area has been selected to be in the show.  For the Preview Gallery go to http://irvingartassociation.org/2017/10/2017-iaa-photography-exhibition-preview-gallery/

Juror is Mark Thompson, an award-winning photographer, videographer and filmmaker. Mark began his career as a painter before discovering his penchant for digital media, at which point he began making the move from being a full-time painter to full-time professional photographer and videographer. Over the years Mark’s training and experience has touched on a variety of different genres that include everything from commercial & product photography to fine art and even filmmaking. Mark has worked as photographer for such outfits as CBS News, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Deep Ellum Foundation, and the Lyndie Wilkes Advertising Agency (just to name a few), his photography as been shown in art galleries all over North Texas, and he is currently producing his first feature-length documentary film.

75 works will be in the exhibit opening October 29 at the Jaycee Park Center for the Arts, Irving TX. The Reception & Awards Ceremony will be Sunday, November 5th, from 2-4pm. The show will be on view through December 1st.  Selected works will travel to the West Irving Library for an exhibit Dec. 3 – Jan. 7, 2018.

Congratulations to those IAA members whose work was selected: Tina Alvarez, Eleanore Avery, Amy Keng, Ron Kreml, Liang Li, Quentin Ochs, Kathleen Ramirez, Alfredo Santesteban and Mary Ann Vela.

Winning art from A Year on the Plaza art competition now on display in Dallas Arts District

Created by Adriana Rivera, “The Tree of Life” uses vivid colors to convey the importance of teaching

family values and respect to the next generation

 

DALLAS (Oct. 12, 2017) – The Catholic Foundation has announced Adriana Rivera as the winner of the 2017 ‘A Year on the Plaza’ Art Competition. Her artwork, “The Tree of Life,” was unveiled on the 28-by-9-foot public art wall in The Catholic Foundation Plaza during a ceremony on Oct. 11 and will remain on display for one year.

As a child, Rivera was intrigued by paintings of beautiful landscapes and would create her own imitations with flower petals and stones. Her father first taught her how to draw, and now her husband and son serve as her support system in following her passion for art. Her winning piece, “The Tree of Life,” conveys her emphasis on teaching family values and respect to the next generation.

“I entered the competition because I thought it would be a good way to demonstrate what I do,” said Rivera. “In this case, I realized I had an opportunity to carry a positive message to people through my painting.”

Located on the grounds of the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe across from the Meyerson Symphony Center, The Catholic Foundation Plaza was dedicated in 2006 as a gift from The Catholic Foundation to the Dallas community to commemorate the Foundation’s 50th anniversary. The 3,900-square-foot public space is an oasis for Dallas citizens and visitors to enjoy at no cost.

“In addition to bringing bright and vivid colors to the Plaza, Adriana Rivera’s piece encompasses an important message for us all,” said J. Matthew Kramer, President and CEO of The Catholic Foundation. “We congratulate Adriana, as well as all of the artists who entered the competition, for their talent and creativity. We hope visitors of the Dallas Arts District will enjoy her work as much as we do.”

Rivera’s artwork, along with submissions by other Texas professional artists, was reviewed by a panel of highly respected members of the local arts community before being selected. This year’s selection committee included: Reverend Stephen Bierschenk, rector of the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe; Cindy M. Gummer, owner of The Enchanted Galleries; Jim Keyes, 2013 ‘A Year on the Plaza’ Art Competition winner; Patricia B. Meadows, Art Connections; Katherine Wagner, CEO of the Business Council for the Arts; and architect Gary Skotnicki. Juan J. Hernandez’s “Trinity River Bottoms” and Ron Mabry’s “Flora and Crockett, Dallas” were selected as honorable mentions in this year’s competition.

Former winners include Marty Ray’s “Celebrate Life, Celebrate Art” in 2006, Ann Cushing Gantz’s “Trumpeting Angels” in 2007, Pamela Nelson’s “Magic Carpet” in 2008; David Zvanut’s “Music on Parade” in 2009; J. Lynn Kelly’s “Downtown Playground” in 2010; Rebecca Guy’s “Dallas in Wonderland” in 2011; Cornelius Brackens Jr. “When the Troops Come Marching Home” in 2012; Jim Keyes’ “Homage to The Concertgebouw” in 2013; Barbara Dybala’s “The Dallas Arts District Word Search,” in 2014; Stuart Hausmann’s “Paint the Town” in 2015; and Tanya Joiner Slate’s “Trinity River Origami” in 2016.

Nel Dorn Byrd’s 14th Annual Open Studio Tour Nov. 4 & 5

I will be featuring plein air paintings at my 14th annual OPEN STUDIO TOUR, November 4 & 5.  Working quickly on location, I strive to capture the essence and feel of a subject.  I search for sites with sunshine and cast shadows and limit my painting time to an hour or less for each painting.  The scenes are from small Texas towns as well as sites in Denton and Collin Counties.  I have some paintings relating to the peanut industry that was big business in Aubrey previous to 1980; there is the old peanut drying facility next to the railroad tracks downtown – it is a painter’s paradise!  You can visit my website, neldornbyrd.com, and click on Plein Air and see many of the paintings I will be showing.

The challenge of competing in juried exhibitions continues to intrigue me.  I hate it when my work is rejected, but always enjoy the thrill of acceptance,  even though I have to pack and ship which is a “real pain”.  I was excited to have a painting  accepted into Watercolor USA again this year!   “Meter Mates”, image size 22 x 30, hung at the Springfield Art Museum in Springfield, MO June 2 – August 27.    My painting, “The Popper Building”, was accepted in the 32nd Annual Texas & Neighbors Exhibition in Irving;  this painting was done from a plein air piece that I did at the SWS Paint Out in Greenville.   “October Elegance” was included in the VAST Membership Juried Exhibition in June at UNT on the Square, Denton,  and received an award.  And “Waiting Renovation” has been accepted in the Kansas Watercolor Society National Exhibition in Whichita, Kansas.

VAST and the Denton Poet’s Assembly join together each year to present Merging Visions, an exhibition of artwork & poetry.  My painting, “Barbed Wire”, was my interpretation of a poem titled, “Fences”, by the poet, Patrick Marshall.  This was my first time to participate  and I very much enjoyed the venture.  The exhibition hung  at the UNT Art Building in the Lightwell Gallery in the early summer months.

My friend and fellow watercolor artist, Gaylord O’Con, included my work in several permanent collections  in Texas and Oklahoma using  my watercolor paintings presented as large, oversized glicee’s.   In April, I did a watercolor demo for the Farmers Branch Carrollton Art Association and an afternoon workshop.

I appreciate your continued interest and support.  The pursuit of watercolor has been a lifelong endeavor; there is constant inspiration from nature, a wonderful  camaraderie with other artists, and the sheer joy of painting!

My OPEN STUDIO TOUR & SALE will be November 4 & 5 and you are invited; along with my plein air works, I will again have note cards.  Hours are 10 to 5 both Saturday & Sunday and I will have a drawing for an original painting given as a door prize. (image below)  Last year’s winner was Lillian Stracener.
If you’ve not yet come since I’ve moved to the country, I hope you will  stop by.  This is my 4th tour since relocating and I am about five miles NE of Denton, just off of FM 428. I have a beautiful view out my studio windows.  Address is 3800 Elm Bottom Circle, Aubrey, TX & my cell # is 972-839-2993.  I  will look forward to seeing you November 4 or 5.

Art Market set for November 4 and 5

This two-day event, scheduled for November 4 and 5, will feature the studios and exhibits of 21 Plano area artists.They are members of the Plano Art Association. The studio locations are throughout the Plano area, from Allen to Richardson to Wylie as well as East and West Plano.

Hours are Saturday, November 410:00 am to 5:00 pm

New this year, the tour will feature an Art Market venue. Six artists will be displaying their work at AramArt Institute at 2309 W. Parker Road, just West of Custer Road.

For 13 years a group of artists in the Plano and surrounding art community have hosted this tour of their studios each November. For the first time, this year, PAA has taken on this highly successful event and opened it up to their members.

A special website has been set up with an interactive map that tour goers can use to plot their own tour route. Samples of each artist’s art work is also displayed on the site.

By meeting artists and learning more about their creative processes, you gain a deep appreciation for their work. Often prices are especially friendly when dealing directly with the artists,” according to Gene Dillard, President of Plano Art Association.

Stolen for 40 Years, Norman Rockwell Masterwork May Bring $1 Million at Heritage Auctions

American Art Auction offers fresh-to-market paintings, works on paper and sculptures Nov. 3 in Dallas

 

DALLAS, Texas (Oct. 13, 2017) – Recently returned to a family after it was stolen more than 40 years ago, Norman Rockwell’s endearing Lazybones (Boy Asleep With Hoe), also known as Taking a Break, is expected to sell for more than $1 million in Heritage Auctions’ Nov. 3 American Art Auction in Dallas. The 1919 Saturday Evening Post cover makes its auction debut, highlighting an exceptional array of Golden Age illustration.

Purchased for less than $100 in 1954 and stolen in June of 1976, Rockwell’s painting stands as one of the artist’s first Saturday Evening Post covers, produced in 1919 when he was only 25. Lazybones illustrates not simply the classic Rockwell subject of childhood, but the quintessential American prankster-adventurer, Huck Finn. With his straw hat and bandana, work shirt, and tattered pants with suspenders, Rockwell’s character comes straight out of the pages of Mark Twain’s celebrated novel. Not least, the painting has its own wild back-story, ripped from the headlines, as it was taken from Robert and Teresa Grant’s house in New Jersey during a well-planned burglary. With the help of special FBI agents, the painting was recovered and returned to the family in March.

“The provenance of this masterwork is as remarkable as the painting itself,” said Aviva Lehmann, Director of American Art at Heritage Auctions. “We are thrilled to bring this classic Rockwell to auction, and find its new home.”

Heritage is also pleased to present The Golden Age: Property from a Distinguished New York Collection.  Comprised of 43 works spanning the Golden Age of Illustration, the single-owner collection embodies an era of unprecedented excellence in magazine and book illustration. The artists of this period captured the nostalgia of simple, innocent times and everyday life through accessible narrative. As such, their content was ideally suited for the imaginative tales published in periodicals of the time, including the Saturday Evening Post, Cosmopolitan, Ladies Home Journal, and Life, among others.  A large portion of the collection is comprised of original illustrations that were reproduced as covers of these magazines.  Impeccably curated, it features works by the best storytellers of the Golden Age, including works by the iconic Joseph Christian Leyendecker (Est. $100,000-150,000) and Maxfield Parrish (Est $8.000-12.000).

Additional iconic works from masters of American Illustration Art includes Bump Mobile, The Saturday Evening Post cover, June 22, 1940, by Albert W. Hampson (est. $30,000-$50,000) and Amateur Nite—Cowboy Bill’s Ramblers, The Saturday Evening Post cover, January 11, 1936, by Monte Crews (est. $20,000-30,000).

The Nov. 3 auction will also feature a spectacular oil by George Henry Durrie titled Winter in the Country, A Cold Morning (est. $300,000-$500,000). Painted circa 1863, this masterwork romanticizes the seasonal pleasures of bucolic life with great composition and attention to detail, prompting one notable Durrie scholar to proclaim the work “one of his best contributions to native winter landscape painting in the nineteenth century.”

Offered for the first time in nearly 30 years, William Merritt Chase’s Untitled (Nude Resting in a Chair), circa 1888. Chase executed the pastel as a classroom demonstration while teaching at the Art Students League in New York. The swivel chair upon which the model sits can be seen in a photograph of Chase, standing in his famous Tenth Street Studio in New York that was reproduced in a 1947 article about the famed studio building in The Villager.

Interior (est. $80,000-$120,000) by Louis Ritman is emblematic of the artist’s unique brand of American Impressionism, painted while the artist lived and worked in Giverny, France.  Interior has descended in the same family for more than 100 years and was last seen publically in 1912 at the Cincinnati Museum’s “19th Annual Exhibition of American Art.

Other highlights of the auction include:

 

Heritage Auctions is the largest fine art and collectibles auction house founded in the United States, and the world’s largest collectibles auctioneer. Heritage maintains offices in New York, Dallas, Beverly Hills, San Francisco, Chicago, Palm Beach, London, Paris, Geneva, Amsterdam and Hong Kong.

The Internet’s most popular auction-house website, HA.com, has over one million registered bidder-members, and searchable free archives of four million past auction records with prices realized, descriptions and enlargeable photos. Reproduction rights routinely granted to media for photo credit.

Ruth A. Keitz: Silent Interiors That Speak opens Nov. 3

28 Harrison Avenue #3

 

The Fort Worth Community Art Center is pleased to announce a juried solo exhibition by Ruth A. Keitz from Los Fresnos, TX. The exhibition opens Friday, November 3, 2017 and runs until Wednesday, November 22, 2017. A reception honoring the artist will take place on Friday November 3, from 6 to 8 in the evening in Gallery 6 at 1300 Gendy Street, Fort Worth, 76107.

Ruth A. Keitz has been involved in art since elementary school. She participated in Saturday art classes at the Carnegie Institute in Pittsburgh, PA from fourth grade through high school. (Well known graduates of the Carnegie Institute program include Philip Pearlstein and Andy Warhol.)

However, it was her father who ran a part-time business painting lines for parking lots, crosswalks, and directional traffic arrows who claimed to have taught her how to paint while working for him summer nights. Perhaps there is more truth than fiction here considering the linear structure of many of her works and the recurring subject matter of night skies.

After graduating with a BA in art from Allegheny College in Meadville, PA, she went to the University of Texas at Austin to continue her education. She was a student of Kelly Fearing and Michael Frary. She completed her MFA in art education with a minor in studio art and a PhD in curriculum and instruction with a minor in studio art.

Her art explores the concept of linear perspective and the concept of the picture plan appearing to advance or recede. Her training in art history has influenced her art:

  • Renaissance linear perspective and the Renaissance concept of the picture plane as a window to the world with its perceived depth and space;
  • Baroque compositions that spill towards us from the picture plane.

The stuff of her art is as likely to be the discards of industrialization as the discards of nature. She enjoys the “thingness,” the uniqueness of objects and materials: texture, shape, color, contrast. All the work uses an extensive mix of found man-made and natural materials.

Her mixed media and collage works include series, such as, “Silent Interiors,” “Fragmented Box,” “Night Windows,” “Moonrise Rift,” “28 Harrison Ave,” “1601 Pine Hollow Road,” and “Doors with No View.”

Artist’s Statement

Silent Interiors That Speak

My mixed media collages and constructions reflect my interest in the physicality of objects, their “thingness”: textures, shapes, colors. Regardless of the subject matter, message, or symbolism, all my work uses mixed media and often includes a variety of found objects. The stuff of my art is likely to be ropa usada or other man-made discards or the discards of nature.

“Silent Interiors That Speak” explores how we create a space/room where we live and where we work. The Silent Interiors include former classrooms where I have taught, former offices, views from rooms in my home, views of room in what was my sister’s home, and empty rooms in my childhood home.

HOW WE LOOK OUT OF A ROOM TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD

G-115 Classroom: views through the window of the classroom door, across the hall, through the window
of another classroom door, and through the window of that classroom to the outside.

LHSB 1.602 Classroom: the architectural view of the adjacent buildings would change depending on where I stood and the daily weather conditions; the sky, changing and unchanging; walls that were some days impenetrable and other days nonexistent; an entry door with a window that had no view; never determining the exact hue of the neutral white walls, sometimes warm sometimes cool!

View from the Studio: explores the same view which is never the same. Changes in seasonal or daily light create patterns of shadows that harmonize and contrast with the lattice covered pergola and the tile accent. My private patch of sky changes its color. Usually the varying patch of blue is empty, but sometimes I am startled by the glimpse of a fleeting airplane or a bird.

HOW THE OUTSIDE WORLD SPILLS INTO OUR SPACE/ROOM

Night Window: explores images of the darkened sky as seen by the naked eye and as revealed by the unconscious mind at night in dreams: sometimes the sweetly poetic and sometimes the omnia noctis (omens of the night).

Moonrise Rift: explores the sensuous texture of the sky and the
palpable quality of its blackness as the brilliant glow of the moon tears and tatters the fabric of night.

G-115 Classroom/Camera Obscura: examines the outside visual world spilling into the classroom. Like the tiny pinhole of the Renaissance camera obscura, the window of the silent, empty room floods the space with the inverted images of the outside world.

HOW PART OF US REMAINS IN A SPACE/ROOM AFTER WE LEAVE

PB1: remembering a shared office space that became an office only for me.

28 Harrison Ave: remembering the rooms of my sister’s home which are now silent.

HOW OUR MEMORY RESHAPES THE PAST OVER THE PASSAGE OF TIME

1601 Pine Hollow Road: looking back over the elapsed years to the spaces and rooms that shaped me.

Major awards – more can be found listed in the catalog:

 


Our 54th Annual Membership Exhibition awards reception was held on Sunday, September 24. Guests seemed to enjoy the sweet & savory hors d’oeuvres, drinks & taking in all the beautiful art to the jazz tunes of Paul Utay’s band. We were able to change the layout and accommodate seating for 135. We had 185 in attendance. Some from as far away as Minnesota!
Many vendor gifts were awarded, several past members were honored with Memorial awards and
SWS awarded 1st, 2nd, 3rd place, as well as, a new award named “The President’s Award” which
was funded by past SWS Presidents to the tune if $500. We also awarded $1,000 to Alicia Farris
for the Edgar Whitney Transparent Watercolor Award and a $1,500 prize to our Naomi Brotherton,
Best of Show to Ingrid Albrecht for her intriguing And Off To The Park We Go watercolor piece! In
total we awarded over $12,000! But, the icing on the cake was likely that our dear Naomi Brotherton won 1st place…she is quite the effervescent artist at 97!
The show was hung for the month of September at the lovely Eisemann Center in Richardson,
Texas.
Many patrons of the arts were able to enjoy our art as they took in other shows there. A number of reception guests commented how this was likely our strongest show ever. Congratulations are in order, again, to everyone in the Exhibition. We hope even more of our members will take the opportunity to enter next year!

500X Gallery, Texas’ oldest, artist-run, cooperative galleries, hosts one of North Texas’ most anticipated annual juried competitions. Expo 2017 is open to all artists over the age of 18 living in Texas.  The exhibition will be running from October 7th – November 5, 2017, with a reception October 7, from 7pm-10pm.
This years juror is Sara-Jayne Parsons. As the Director of the Art Galleries at TCU in Fort Worth, British curator Sara-Jayne Parsons drives the international vision of Fort Worth Contemporary Arts and promotes professional development of students and local artists through programming in Moudy Gallery. Before moving to Fort Worth in 2014 Parsons was the Exhibitions Curator at the Bluecoat in Liverpool, UK, where for eight years she produced a diverse, contemporary exhibition programme. In that time she was also a collaborative member of the curatorial team for the Liverpool Biennial. She has also published critical writing in various contemporary art magazines including Source, Art Monthly Australia and ArtLies, and has published essays in numerous exhibition catalogues.


We Made Cool – Ari Brielle
Downstairs / Project Space

We Made Cool is a body of work by Ari Brielle that examines notions of black femininity, strength and softness. Candy painted colors and natural motifs decorate portraits that explore black culture, consumption and experience. Ari Brielle is an emerging visual artist based in Dallas, Texas. She completed her BA at the University of North Texas in 2016 where she cultivated her studio practice and studied Interdisciplinary Art and Design. Brielle has exhibited in Texas and New York, and was recently nominated as one of Dallas’ Rising Stars by Liliana Bloch Gallery.


A Call From The Center of Things 
– Bárbara Cartier
Upstairs / Project Space

Bárbara Cartier energetically explores the tricky territory between painting and sculpture using a variety of materials and methods to create sculptural forms reminiscent of organic objects such as eggs and river rocks. Her use of vibrant colors and silky smooth surfaces suggest a “new car” seduction; polyurethane and fiberglass forms become outsized shining gems, transformed by hand and machine resulting in an ornate illusion of weight and volume. Teamed with collages, these totemic forms challenge decoration in a playful manner to create a kaleidoscopic installation intent on alchemy.

Born in Argentina, Bárbara Cartier now lives and works in Panama. Featuring new sculpture and collages, A Call From The Center of Things will be her first solo exhibition in the United States. This exhibition is sponsored by the Art Galleries at TCU.


2017 Member’s Exhibition

Upstairs / Main Gallery

Welcoming the addition of its newest members, this group of emerging Texas artists will be showcasing a range of media investigating a variety of content and formal concerns. Now on exhibition until November 5th.

Featured artists:

Kalee Appleton, Clint Bargers, Lynne Bowman-Cravens, Molly Dierks, Ross Faircloth, Chris Ireland, Steven Foutch, Julie Libersat, Seth Lorenz, Valerie Powell, Justin Strickland-Hoff, James Talambas, Tabatha Trolli, Tony Veronese, and Ashley Whitt.

Woman, flower, earth are creators in our life & they all interact in the process of fertility, reproduction & generosity. My art collection represents this association.
