Reception Jan. 25 for ‘In the Year 2000’ at the Moudy

Moudy Gallery:  In the Year 2000

January 22 – March 8, 2013

Reception Friday, January 25, 5 – 7 pm
RoadsideSeedBomb_detail_sm
Austin Stewart, “Roadside Seed Bomb” (detail)
Moudy Gallery presents “In the Year 2000,” a new-media and contemporary printmaking exhibition with work by Annie Bissett, Andrew DeCaen, Joshua Penrose, Austin Stewart, S.W.A.M.P., and Sang Mi-Yoo. These artists incorporate progressive technologies in their practice (including but not limited to: 3D printing, custom software development, interactive video projects, explosives, microprinted documents, wearable electronics, and robotics), or they utilize long-held traditional techniques at the service of contemporary social and political artistic speech. The themes expressed in the exhibition are partly lent by new-media’s suitable application to a political viewpoint, but they also speak widely about to our collective memory of expectations of the future and what it might look like. Often, that vision of the future (or recent past) is one of environmental degradation, food shortages and limited global resources, sprawl, economic inequality, and war.

“Landscape is our Sex”

David HEYMANN; Moderator

HHH Professor, UT Austin School of Architecture

Tuesday, 6:30 pm

22 January 2013

Here’s a familiar trope in architectural discourse: landscape is good, building is landscape, therefore, building is good. That three-car train of logic is currently the familiar basis of how most architects describe their own designs. Architects use this logic, because nothing sells like landscape. It’s our sex. Yet far too many of the buildings so justified over the past two decades forever violently disrupt their landscapes. How can this be? David Heymann discusses how architects misuse the rhetoric of landscape in architectural design today.

David Heymann is an architect, and the Martin S. Kermacy Centennial Chair in the School of Architecture at UT Austin. Heymann received a Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture from the Cooper Union, and a Master’s Degree in Architecture from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard. He worked for Tod Williams and Billie Tsien, and I.M Pei and Partners, prior to founding his own firm. The focus of Heymann’s writing and research is the complex relationship of buildings and landscapes, particularly natural landscapes. This is also the centerline of his architectural practice, with commissions for clients including the Audubon Society and President George W. and Laura Bush, for whom he designed an environmentally sustainable house in Crawford, Texas. His architectural work has been variously published, and recognized with design honors, including selection for Emerging Voices by the Architecture League of New York. He is currently working on a series of essays that ask how buildings make landscape.

               THE BEST OF CONTEMPORARY CRAFT ON DISPLAY IN DENTON

 

The Greater Denton Arts Council presents the 26th Annual Materials: Hard & Soft National Contemporary Craft Competition and Exhibition.

This exhibition, which has run continuously since 1987, was the idea of local artist, Georgia Leach Gough.  The name, Materials: Hard & Soft, refers to the entire range of fine craft.  This competition and ensuing exhibition still draws the attention of fans of contemporary craft across the country.  In 2006, the Texas Commission on the Arts designated this show as a “must see” exhibition in Texas.  It is one of the premier craft exhibitions in the country.

The juror this year is Jean W. McLaughlin, executive director of the Penland School of Crafts since 1998. McLaughlin came to Penland after serving 16 years at the North Carolina Arts Council as Director of Visual Arts and later Director of the Office of Statewide Initiatives. She has served on the board of the Craft Emergency Relief Fund, chaired a USA fellowship panel, and served on numerous NEA panels. A native of North Carolina, McLaughlin holds an M.A. in Liberal Studies from the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, North Carolina State University, and a B.A. in Studio Art with an emphasis in printmaking from University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. She also studied textiles at the California College of Arts and Crafts, NC State University, and Penland School of Crafts.

This year, we received entries from 207 artists, with a total of 568 pieces. Ms. McLaughlin chose 73 pieces for the exhibition.

As usual, the work submitted stretches the typical definition of craft.  Typically, craft is defined as having a functional purpose to separate it from fine art.  While there may be a reference to a purpose, these artists have stretched the boundaries of the craft definition.  The skill of the artist in manipulating their chosen material is readily apparent.  This opportunity to see first-hand the mastery of technique and manipulation of material draws viewers from many parts of the country.

The quality of work, as well as the duration of this exhibition, promotes Denton’s artistic community.  Drawing exhibitors and visitors nationally advances the perception that for two months Denton showcases the best craft in the country.  The excellent work continues to stretch the boundaries of artistic expression.

Opening reception is Friday, February 8, 2013, 6:00 – 8:00 pm, recognition of awards at 6:45 pm.

To obtain additional information about the exhibit either visit the GDAC’s website, www.dentonarts.com, or call 940-382-2787.

Fort Worth Contemporary Arts is proud to present Transmission, the 4th annual exhibition of new work by the school’s current MFA candidates, this year curated by Nathan Green of Austin’s Okay Mountain and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.  He chose exemplary works from each student’s catalog—works that highlight, summarize, and clarify each of the artist’s current state of mind.  The exhibition features a broad and diverse sampling of practices, conceptual concerns, and material choices; a high level of curiosity and experimentation is a constant.  Throughout the exhibition multifarious relationships exist between the artists in terms of their use of content, material, and execution; at times these relationships are harmonious, at times discordant. Nonetheless, the threads that connect these artists and their work provide us with an exciting array of perspectives that together reflect our contemporary experience.

Off the Wall: Maverick Quilts Reception Jan. 17

quiltreception

World Premiere on view at The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame January 17 through March 31, 2013

An exhibition of some thirty-five surprising and exceptional “Maverick” American quilts, most never before displayed publicly, is coming to Texas.  “OFF THE WALL: Maverick Quilts” will be on the display at The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame in Fort Worth from January 17 through March 31, 2013.   The exhibit, organized by The Quilt Complex in Albion, CA, explores the ingenious, wide-ranging, and sometimes wholly unexpected ways that American women interpreted traditional quilt designs.

Individual renditions of quilt designs are as varied as the American women who made them.  The quilts range from the elegant to the primitive, from predictable to wildly inspired.  These antique quilts are moving and amusing, formal or funky.  And all stops in between.

Included will be works that span almost two centuries of quilt making, including superb examples of some of the most iconic American quilt designs and techniques, such as a group of “Log Cabin” quilts, a variety of “Album” quilts, three wildly different versions of the familiar “Grandmother’s Flower Garden,” and several rare variations of the “crazy quilts” that were in vogue in the late nineteenth century.

Using pairs or groups of quilts of the same traditional designs, the exhibition explores personal, social, technological and cultural influences that result in the wildly different interpretations.

The simple Ninepatch design, (illustrated below in a vintage black and white photograph,) has been re-invented by a very inventive woman into a unique “take” we are calling “Whirling Ninepatch.” (illustrated below)

Additionally, there will be a variety of programs offered in conjunction with the exhibit – quilt demonstrations, lectures and opportunities to contribute a block to our community quilt.  Individuals who contribute who contribute a quilt block for our community quilt, will receive half price admission to the Museum that day.

“There are many obvious ties between quilts and those very women we honor in our Museum,” noted Diana Vela, associate executive director of exhibits and education. “Many of our Honorees were considered ‘mavericks’ in their time – doing things that were out of the ordinary, and going against traditionally prescribed roles. This exhibit nicely complements our mission to speak about those women who shaped the West and changed the world.”

Existentialism in Art: International Art Exhibition

Back to Earth by John Milton

LuminArte Gallery in the Dallas Design District starts off the New Year with a stimulating new exhibition, “Red – Existentialism in Art,” which examines our place in the universe and delves into the questions of subjectivity, spirituality and the nature of existence. Existentialism transcends systematic philosophies and affirms introspective “authenticity,” while the color red suggests a primal identity, passionate and profound. Each artist demonstrates this depth of experience and contemplation through very personal explorations of creativity, producing distinctly powerful and moving works of art.

Scheduled from January 19 – February 9, 2013, “Red” features a roster of international artists from around the US, India, Sweden, Russia, Mexico, Israel, England and Sierra Leone as well as a few local favorites, displaying artworks in the media of painting, sculpture, photography and video art. The reception for “Red” will be held on January 19 from 7-10PM at LuminArte Gallery, showcasing the artwork of Wewer Keohane, Puneeta Mittal, Alison Jardine, Kay Dalton, Gina Marie Dunn, Elizabeth Anyaa, Araceli Salcedo, Jim Lively, Ted Barr, Richard Bailey, Eitan Vitkon, Luba Muravyeva, Chinmay Mehta, John Milton, David Hodge and Hi-Jin Kang Hodge.

LuminArte Gallery is located at 1727 E. Levee Street, Dallas, Texas 75207. Hours are Monday through Friday, 11am – 5pm; and by appointment. For more information, call 214.914.4503 or visitwww.luminarte.com and follow on Facebook.
