From Blues to Hip Hop at the TVAA Downtown Gallery

The TVAA Downtown Gallery announces the opening of the exhibition From Blues To Hip Hop, curated by Mary Ann Turner, on Tuesday, February 1, 2011. A reception with the Artists will be held on Sunday, February 6 [rescheduled to Feb. 14, 2-4 pm], . The exhibition closes on Monday, February 28, 2011.

For centuries every culture has created rhythms, sounds, and lyrics that reflect universal emotions. Artists may not write the songs or the words, but visual artists of every medium can and often do express responses to the music they hear through their art. From Blues to Hip Hop represents these artists’ responses to the music that feeds their creative spirits.

Please join us for the reception on Sunday, February 6 from 2 to 4. The Gallery is easily accessible by DART’s Pearl Street stop, and the reception is free and open to the public.

New Alchemy: Andrew K. Currey Feb. 1-28

Emerging Artist, Andrew K. Currey, is coming to the Design District of Dallas for the month of February to showcase his work at the upcoming fine art gallery: 1111 Studio Gallery. (Located at 1111 Dragon St., Dallas, TX). The exhibition will open February 1 and will close on February 28; the opening reception will be held on Saturday, February 12 at 6:30 P.M. to 10:00 P.M. The Exhibit will showcase large-scale paintings and drawings. Live improvisation jazz guitars will accompany the artwork during the opening reception, courtesy of Dallas musicians: Kenny Hada, and Carlos Pulledo. 

Andrew K. Currey paints large-scale work focusing on his life as a “Type One” diabetic in order to create an autobiographical narrative about living with this disease. Using modern day medical devices juxtaposed with images of nature (bees, horses, and botanical elements), “New Alchemy” explores the surrealist lifestyle behind Diabetes and the people who live with it. 

Andrew K. Currey was born in Pueblo, Colorado, and received his Bachelor in Fine Arts with emphasis in Painting and Drawing from the University of North Texas. He also spent time in Florence, Italy restoring 15th century paintings at the Lorenzo Di Medici School in Florence. This experience led to his exploring the use of symbolism and visual metaphors in his paintings, while at the same time developing a style of stressed and aged texture on canvas.

“Across the Ages” opens Feb. 4; reception Feb. 11

The Fort Worth Community Art Center, 1300 Gendy Street, will be hosting 3 artists in the Front Gallery, February 4-27. The exhibit is called “Across the Ages”.

All  artists are from the Fort Worth area. This will be the first time that 15 year old Faith Bruton will have a public show. She will share the space with Mazie Pannell and Jane Hansen. All have studied with European Master Grigor Aleksi of Sabka Fine Art Gallery on 7th Street. 

All three artists have very different styles, subject matter and ages. Faith is willingly to say she is 15; Jane admits to being in the 60’s but prefers 39 and Mazie admits to being 82. 

Faith Bruton, born in Tulsa, Okla., moved with her family to Fort Worth at 2. She became enamored with art watching painting programs at KERA. Her 6th birthday party was help at Amon Carter Art Museum. She has studied with Grigor Aleksi for 4 years. She also enjoys classical guitar and travel. In fact she has visited 29 countries throughout Europe and Asia. She attends the ninth grade at Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts.


Mazie Pannel, 82, is a Texas original. While being a mother (3), grandmother of many and great grand mother, Maxie was always interest in art.  She began her artistic endeavors by painting trunks; moved on to making dolls, doing everything from making the doll, painting it, making the dress and much more. Some are life size. Her present art career came about when she started taking classes at Sabka about 3 years ago. She is very interested in painting people.  She recently started doing landscapes. 



The final presenter this February is Jane Hansen who moved to Fort Worth in 2006. Originally from Detroit,  Ms. Hansen has an extensive background in marketing and 
management A very dedacated art collector for many years, she decided it was time to try it out herself with the help of an individual teacher. In 3 1/2 years she has explored painting people (a favorite) landcapes and other living creatures like lions, tigers, dogs and horses. She recently opened a web page to sell her work. More details are available on her web page: Janehansenart.com. The art and giclee prints (special prints on canvas) will be available for  purchase.  Twenty percent of the sale will go to FWCA.

The reception for the FWCA Focus Art Show, “Across All Ages” will be on February 11 at 6 p.m.Admission is Free. Food and beverages will be available.

Pollock Gallery Exhibit: Selections 1: “I Went Through My Bin Again (with Open Robe)”:

A Very Short Introduction to Frances Stark

What:                Frances Stark is an artist who writes and a writer who draws. Through much of her varied production, Stark has reshaped and redescribed from the poin of view of a female artist the intellectual and physical activities typically associated with writing. Her work is a vivid, gently humorous reconstruction of the foibles and frustrations of authorship. At the heart of Stark’s work is an abiding love of self-reflection and skepticism; the inventive expression of such values provides the viewer with a constant reminder of the fragility of the artist’s enterprise. The exhibit is organized by Michael Corris, chair of SMU’s Division of Art, with the cooperation of The Rachofsky House and other notable Dallas collections. “Selections 1” is the first in a series of biennial exhibitions curated by noted guest curators, critics, writers and artists focusing on contemporary artists, topics and issues of their choosing.

When:             Feb. 7 – Mar. 19, 2011. Hours are 11-5 Mon., Tues., Thurs. and Fri., and 1-5 Sat.

                            Opening Reception Feb. 11 from 5-7 p.m.

Where:            Pollock Gallery in Hughes-Trigg Student Center, 3140 Dyer St. on SMU campus,

                        Dallas (75205)

2011 Painted Violins for the FWSO – Auction Feb. 24

DFW Artist Ernie Benton Creates Painted Violin 
Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra
2011 Painted Violins
Passions from the Palette

Earnest “Ernie” Benton, Jr. is a contemporary artist who loves listening to music. In particular, he loves listening to jazz as he paints. He is at a point in his life where he can not only create his art work but can also give back to the world some of his time, energy, ideas, and occasionally even his art work.

Ernie was recently invited to participate in the Fort Worth Symphony’s “Painted Violins – Passions from the Heart” fundraising event. He along with thirty-one other professional and celebrity artists of regional and national importance have taken bare wooden violins as their canvases, using classical symphonic pieces as their inspiration, and created strikingly individual and vibrant works that reflect a variety of styles and media as well as personal concepts of art and music.

The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra shares the joy and beauty of symphonic music with nearly 65,000 children through more than 100 engaging programs each year. Through innovative educational events, in-school concerts, free neighborhood performances, and an extensive touring program, the Orchestra strives to ensure that children of all ages from every walk of life, every ethnic origin, and all backgrounds have the opportunity to experience live symphonic music. Since the beginning of November 2010 the completed violins have been displayed at a number of venues in Fort Worth, including Gallerie Kornye West, the Sid Richardson Museum and the Bass Performance Hall lobby during FWSO concerts.

Ernie is self-taught, having started drawing when very young. As the years went by, he continued to train himself by observing other art and by creating his own pieces. He has created numerous acrylic paintings and also enjoys working in pastels. His strong, colorful, bold work is sometimes realistic and sometimes abstracted. Ernie tries to paint everyday and enjoys painting at night in his home studio. He says of his creative process, “I am inspired by passion, beauty, and the abstracts and intangibles of music, thought, form and figure. I love to create paintings to share my visions with the world so that just for a moment the viewer becomes a part of my story. My hope is that all who view my work will have a mood-changing experience that takes them on a short journey to peace, beauty, well-being, and serenity. The creative process of putting line and form on canvas or paper will always be an essential part of my life.”

He is very active in art organizations and charity groups that benefit from his membership and support and includes the Visual Arts Society of Texas, the Irving Arts Center, the Irving Art Association, the South Western Watercolor Society, and the Pastel Society of the South West just to name a few. He seems untiring in his efforts to create and promote art. He has won countless awards and prizes, and has been juried into numerous art exhibitions and festivals.

Learn more about the “Painted Violins” project at the Fort Worth Symphony website.

You can also see Ernie’s art and a lot more about him by checking www.strictlyearnest.com .

The exclusive Auction Event will be held at the Chesapeake Energy Plaza February 24, 2011, 6:30 p.m.

Winners of the TAG Members Show

Member’s Juried Show
TAG members made quite a showing Christmas week in spite of
the busy time of year. They delivered 85 entries to fill the gallery.
We tried a new approach and accepted entries in subject
categories rather than by media. Categories were Figures and
Portraits, Still-life, Non- Objective, Landscapes, and 3D, and
Sculpture. It was interesting to have watercolors and mixed media
competing with oils or pen and ink.
The show was ably judged by Judy Sager. Judy is a long time
educator and teacher in all media, as well as an exhibiting artist.
As it turned out there were winners in each of the various media.
Awards were all cash for this show. Best of Show received $200.
1st Place $100, 2nd $75, and 3rd 50.
Many thanks to all our members who entered. You have shared
your talents and your techniques. You have represented our
Guild beautifully and you have inspired us all. Happy Painting!

HOURS: Saturday & Sunday Noon-5pm, and Weekdays by appointment

MAIN GALLERY
Imprints: Three Generations of 500X curated by Leslie Murrell
Imprints: Three Generations of 500X joins the work of three former members of 500X Gallery whose shared interests in line and composition manifest in distinct and intriguing ways. Tom Orr incorporates and abstracts his fingerprint in a large-scale silkscreen; Vance Wingate’s drawings investigate the intersection of mathematical ratios and human intuition; and Natalie Macellaio poetically addresses the cracks found on the gallery floor below. 

Tom Orr was part of 500X, the oldest artist-run space in Texas, at its inception in 1978. He helped construct the very walls of the gallery, and his work here features Fatboy (1978), a readymade included in the first exhibition in this space. A comparison with the recent silkscreen Fingerprint Series #3 (2006), featuring the repeating forms of his fingerprint, reveals a continuous and consistent exploration of themes spanning thirty years. 

Vance Wingate manipulates a self-imposed set of rules to investigate the tension between rigid systems and intuitive intervention. His drawings investigate the potential permutations to be found in connecting dots located along the golden section of the paper. Each series adheres to a slightly different set of systems and processes, some additive and some subtractive, producing nuanced variations.

Natalie Macellaio represents the most recent class of 500X artists. In Imprints, she represents the cracks of the gallery floor in silver on the wall above them. She brings out the formal beauty of these mundane imperfections by mirroring them in precious materials. The transformation of this space’s particular scars also brings a heightened sense of focus to the immediate surroundings.

This exhibition is curated by current 500X member Leslie Murrell, an art historian, educator and curator. 

Scott Hilton: Excellent Specimens (in Nines)
The tintype is a photograph of unimpeachable physicality. Its process is tangibly demanding, unforgiving, and reverential. It cannot be rushed or it rebels, as the silver salts that form the tintype are “alive,” like all Alchemical metals. Excellent Specimens is a speculation on the tintype’s chemical and optical carnality.

UPSTAIRS GALLERY
Bernardo Cantu: Inter-dimensional Relics from the Barrio 2
Bernardo’s abstract sculptural paintings act as relics from a twisted sci-fi meets the barrio, alternate reality or imagined space. Bernardo is a third generation Mexican American who was born seven miles from the Tex-Mex border in Weslaco, TX. His body of work delivers a socially significant message as it explores questions of cultural identity, tears through barriers, stretches limits and creates vast new possibilities. Bernardo’s work Is a product of a larger decolonizing enterprise, that functions from a mentality of what Walter Mignolo calls border gnosis; knowledge developed at the borderland, that takes form at the margins of the modern Western world.

Bernardo Cantu a recent MFA-Drawing and Painting graduate from UNT, is featured in edition #90 of New American Paintings, and an artist in the 2011 Texas Biennial. He will also be included in an as of yet unannounced up and coming artists group exhibition curated by Cris Worley. Come see this artist showcase a recent body of work that may not be shown again in its entirety in Dallas.
