Opening Reception April 28, 6:30 p.m.

John Henry is known worldwide for his large-scale public works of art, which grace numerous museum, corporate, public and private collections. In the Dallas area, his sculptures may be seen in front of the Hall Arts Building in the Dallas Arts District.

The geometric forms that have defined John’s work for more than forty years have their aesthetic and historical base in Constructivism.  John received a Ford Foundation grant to attend the Art Institute of Chicago, where he earned a BFA. He received an Honorary Doctor of Arts from the University of Kentucky in 1996. He was a founding member of ConStruct, the artist-owned gallery that promoted and organized large-scale sculpture exhibitions throughout the United States.

JM Gallery Presents: Ceramicist Linda Gossett April 22

LindaGossettgateway

Join JM Gallery Saturday, April 22, from 5 until 8 for our opening reception featuring ceramicist Linda Gossett.

JM Gallery is pleased to present a collection of porcelain assemblages by Linda Gossett. Starting with a curious cache of found objects, Linda recasts and playfully reassembles her material into talismanic figurines that appear both familiar and absurd. Mass-produced, plaster tchotchkes become refined collectibles in the style of 18th-century European ceramics—refined but nonsensical, as hands emerge from birds’ breasts, shoes grow out of a duck’s head on a deer’s body, and children’s legs run away with an eagle. This is an imagery of contrast meant to challenge our preconceptions. Where we normally expect to see cheap plaster knickknacks, we see light, fragile porcelain; but then, where we expect to see elegant subjects, we see new forms of absurdity and incongruity. With such contrasts, Linda questions cultural values—what do we value, what do we desire, and where does the desire for possession enter the conversation? As she explains, “I offer my art as a springboard for the imagination.”

 

ABOUT JM GALLERY // JM Gallery offers works of art on paper and sculptural forms that engage both the eye and the mind. The gallery promotes artists who create smart, visually compelling work and showcases their art in a space that is inviting and accessible. JM Gallery is committed to working closely with artists as they develop their work and careers and to developing lasting relationships with collectors. In collaboration with area schools and non-profits, they enrich the creative community by teaching artists and collectors about navigating the complex world of art.

______________________________________________________________________

April 25 

Richard Tuttle, often identified as a critical figure in the evolution of Conceptual and Minimalist art, has throughout his long and industrious career created a particularly varied body of work that actually eludes historical or stylistic categorization. Tuttle’s conviction to the contemporary, rather than the past or future, makes his every move unpredictable and as such, rejuvenating. It is understandable that his influence, while allusive, has been sought by every generation since his pioneering 1975 solo exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art curated by Marcia Tucker, who later founded the New Museum.
For this Tuesday Evenings presentation, Richard Tuttle discusses new work as seen in a few recent exhibitions, including Richard Tuttle: The Critical Edge at The Met Fifth Avenue;Richard Tuttle: 26 at Pace Gallery; Richard Tuttle at de Hallen Haarlem in the Netherlands; and Richard Tuttle: to The Night Sky of Lima at Museo de Arte de Lima. This new work, like that of the past, reflects the artist’s commitment to materials, his poetic approach to making art, and ultimately his faith in the fragility and beauty of the world.
Richard Tuttle, living and working in Mount Desert, Maine; Abiquiu, New Mexico; and New York, has been the subject of numerous major solo exhibitions, including a major traveling retrospective organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in 2005. In 2014, he exhibited in the Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall and, simultaneously, London’s Whitechapel Gallery presented Richard Tuttle: I Don’t Know. The Weave of Textile Language.

“Spatial Planes Are Implied” by Donna Park at Gidden Gallery

spacialplanes

“Spatial Planes Are Implied” by Donna Park
“In recent work there have been layers of horizontal, vertical and diagonals using transparent washes with gradation in color to add depth to the color field. Spatial planes are implied with the lines. The use of line, value and impasto in the composition makes it appear three dimensional. These add textural variations with hard edges that are unpredictable emerging through the surface.”

Many Hats/One Head – The Accidental Curator

Robert Storr is a painter who supported himself by sheetrocking, carpentry, and house painting, along with occasional art writing, when in 1990, with only an MFA in studio art, Storr was picked out of the chorus line by the newly appointed Kirk Varnedoe, Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, to be a curator in that same department. What followed was an eventful twelve-year run at MoMA, with his tenure ending as Senior Curator. Then there was a stint as the first Rosalie Solow Professor of Modern Art at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, as well as the overall directorship of the 2007 Venice Biennale, making Storr the first and, thus far, only US-born curator chosen for this role in the 112-year-old exhibition. All of this was followed by the deanship of the Yale University School of Art.
Still a professor of painting at Yale, for this Tuesday Evenings presentation Storr talks about learning on the job as a way of life during a period of extraordinarily complex, rapid, and far-flung changes in the “art world” — now a polycentric, culturally diverse, and ever-morphing economic and politic alternate reality — as well as the abiding values that draw people to art and into an “art community” primarily inhabited by makers of various kinds.
Robert Storr lives and works in New York. In addition to his posts at The Museum of Modern Art, New York University, Yale University School of Art, and his role as director of the 52nd Venice Biennale, Storr has curated and published catalogues for numerous exhibitions, including monographic shows on Elizabeth Murray, Gerhard Richter, Tony Smith, and Robert Ryman. In April 2016, Storr was awarded the insignia of Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French Ambassador to the US. As a renowned author and critic, he has been a contributing editor at
Art in America since 1981 and regularly contributes to exhibition catalogues and art publications such as ArtForum, Frieze, Parkett, Corriere della Sera (Milan), and Art Press.His most recent publication, Intimate Geometries: The Work and Life of Louise Bourgeois, was released on February 15, 2017.

Ambreen Butt, Pia Camil and Keer Tanchak Exhibits at the Dallas Contemporary

DallasContemporaryButtCamilTanchak

8 APRIL – 20 AUGUST 2017

AMBREEN BUTT

What is left me

Ambreen Butt’s What is left of me addresses current political oppression and violence globally through large-scale resin installations and collage-based works. The creation of each piece is labor intensive and built upon meditative repetitive forms. Butt studied traditional Indian and Persian miniature painting at the National College of Art in Lahore and has built a unique visual language based upon that training.

PIA CAMIL

Bara, Bara, Bara

Through a wide variety of media ranging from installation to performance and ceramics, Pia Camil explores themes of art history, consumerism and the Mexican urban landscape. Investigating urban ruin through interpretations of abandoned billboards, dollar stores, and iconic works of art, Camil addresses the aesthetic language of modernism and its relationship to retail and advertising.

KEER TANCHAK

Soft Orbit

Keer Tanchak’s site-specific exhibition embodies the idea of time travel through art history and focuses on the last two years of the artist’s studio practice. Tanchak’s approach to painting demonstrates how the medium is always operating in a web of tradition and cultural references. The exhibition serves as a metaphorical X-ray machine that exposes the building block of the language of painting: brushwork, color, and light.

The Richard Brettell Award in the Arts at UT Dallas, established in 2016 with an endowment from Mrs. Eugene McDermott, recognizes the essential and fundamental role in the arts in the life of the university. The award honors an artist working in or between any of the broad spectrum of artistic endeavors, including the visual arts, music, literature, performance, and architecture/design.

Given every other year, the award consists of a prize of $150,000 and a week’s residence on the UT Dallas campus and in Dallas, during which the awardee will present a major public lecture and interact in a variety of venues with the students, staff and faculty of UT Dallas and with the larger arts community of the Dallas-Ft. Worth area.

Prospective awardees will be nominated by the Brettell Award Advisory Committee, composed of international leaders in arts and culture, with the selection of the awardee being made by an Executive Committee composed of university and community leaders.

The concept of the Brettell Award is inspired by the Eugene McDermott Award in the Arts at MIT, created by the McDermott Family at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1974. The MIT McDermott Award is also made every other year, and it is planned to schedule the two events in alternating years.
