Art Chic@s Open House and Reception Oct. 29

La Reunion TX invites you to 2011 Art Chic@s Open House and Reception (Oct 29, 2011). website: http://lareuniontx.org/

The 2011 Art Chic@s Open House and Reception will showcase work created at the La Reunion TX site by seven local artists assisted by Dallas-area high school students. Students learn from this experience about the creative process, about logistics, and about art as a profession.

This year, for the first time, male artists are being teamed with high-school boys to create a site-specfic installation. Art Chicas and Art Chicos work on separate days but will come together to show their work at this Open House.  But not only will they show their work, some will also be performingtheir work–or hanging it in a most dramatic way.

The artists: Bernardo Diaz, Art Garcia, Frankie Garcia III, Aralyn McGregor, Lyndsey Rieple, Emily Riggert and Jennifer Sereno.

Thanks to our sponsors and Mentor Madres and Padres: Zaida Basora, Sally Horchow, Jessica Stewart Lendvay, Leslie MacLean, Julie Porter, Lucilo Peña, Catherine Rose, the Hall Foundation, UNT Dallas and Eventbrite. And thanks to our Honorary Chair, The Honorable Elba Garcia, who will join us for the event, and to all of the volunteers who make this event happen.

Art Chic@s is a collaboration of La Reunion TX, the Dallas Art Dealers Association and the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas.

The exact location, the LRTX site in west Oak Cliff, will be sent by email a few days before the event.  Long pants, long sleeves and sturdy shoes are a must: this is an as-yet-undeveloped site.  We’re working on it!

New Paintings by Dion Johnson at Marty Walker

MARTY WALKER GALLERY PRESENTS:

DION JOHNSON
NEW PAINTINGS

VIDEO ROOM: BRIAN FRIDGE

OCTOBER 15 -NOVEMBER 12, 2011 / Opening: Saturday, October 15, 6-8pm

Marty Walker Gallery is pleased to present large-scale, color-field abstract paintings of Los Angeles-based artist Dion Johnson. Bringing California hard edge painting into the new millennium, Johnson combines flat planes of bold commercial colors, creating shifting fields that recall paintings of Karl Benjamin and John McLaughlin.

The strata of color inspired by LA’s overabundant billboards, architecture and buzzing traffic transforms the congested urban culture into simplified synthetic cityscape of vivid clarity. Johnson, like McLaughlin, explores the movement between the planes of color, like subtle pauses that linger in musical compositions, setting the colors to pulsate between thin stripes and expanding wide slabs, flat space and unexplored depths. While Johnson’s interest is rooted in landscape and environment, his paintings lack any representational forms to evoke an openness recalling an almost utopian eternal Southern California summer – light, rich, and abundant.

Johnson lives and works in Los Angeles, received his BA from the Ohio State University and an MA from Claremont University. Johnson has exhibited nationally in museums and galleries from New York, Los Angeles, Santa Fe, and Columbus, Ohio.

VIDEO ROOM: BRIAN FRIDGE, Sequence 36.2, 2011

In his first exhibition at the gallery, Dallas artist Brian Fridge merges sculpture in a virtual realm with video, inspired by Malevich, theories in physics, Belgian artist Panamarenko’s flying machines, and Arte Povera’s celebration of endless change, process, and the flow of energy. For this exhibition, the artist will share Sequence 36.2 which begins with a tiny mandala-like form appearing to morph into simultaneously a plant-like object vacillating between growth and inky plumes. His constructed scenes suspend time and recognition, and when combined with camera recordings of magnetic phenomena such scenes become shifting, dimensional abstractions.

Fridge received his MFA from University of Texas at Dallas and has been recognized with the Dallas Museum of Art Kimbrough Fund, Whitney Biennial, and ArtPace Artist-in-residence, and has had numerous national and international gallery and museum exhibitions.

Sincerely, John Marcucci, Ph.D.
