Sugar and Wood, New Paintings by Anna Membrino & Omar Rodriguez-Graham, June 23rd 6-8pm

 

SUGAR AND WOOD
New Paintings by Anna Membrino and
Omar Rodriguez-Graham 

JUNE 23 – AUGUST 4, 2012
OPENING RECEPTION: SATURDAY JUNE 23, 6-8PM 

Marty Walker Gallery celebrates the beginning of summer with an exhibition of new work from Anna Membrino andOmar Rodriguez-Graham. Their compositions question the boundaries between painting and sculpture as they illicit a debilitating sense of space within the canvas surface. The unfamiliar realism of these scenes evokes curiosity coupled with a sense of desolation. This exhibition will mark the artists first time showing with the gallery.


Anna Membrino, Untitled (Sugar Series no. 26), 2012, acrylic on canvas, 60 x 60 in.

Anna Membrinos Sugar Series indulges in the liquid spillage of paint. These anthropomorphic landscapes originate from studies of molded and shaped candy that become sticky and strangely corporeal. Her forms translated into paint preserve the enticing moment of the sculptures’ seduction into vibrant and unfamiliar forms. Large-scale canvases are intended to be visually and physically immersive, as layers and veils of paint reveal candy in foreign soft and fleshy states. Membrino currently lives and works in Dallas, TX. She has recently earned an M.F.A. in painting from Southern Methodist University in Dallas.                         


Omar Rodriguez-Graham, Composicion #25, 2011, oil on canvas, 13.8 x 11.8 in.

Born and raised in Mexico, but trained in the United States, Omar Rodriguez-Graham builds minimal and painted sculptures as source for painted still lives. In this series, Composiciones, Rodriguez-Graham embraces the transparency of painting. His intimate canvases are rooted in composition and the formalism. Rodriguez-Graham’s use of stoic colors and emphasis of form, parallel the great tradition of realism. He aims at an objective sculptural truth through brush strokes and tone. His uncompromising structures founded in simplicity of right angles exist somewhere between pure formalism and the influence of the real.             

Rodriguez-Graham completed his M.F.A. in Painting from Temple University in Philadelphia, and has since been featured as an emerging artist on ABC News. Recent exhibitions since 2009 include: Arroniz Arte Contemporáneo, México D.F., México, Museo de Arte Moderno, México D.F., México. The artist lives and works in Mexico City, Mexico.

Sons and Daughters of the Sun and Star opens June 16

Sons and Daughters of the Sun and Star: A Collaborative Project between Texas Christian University and Hiroshima City University Sculpture Departments

Opening Reception at Fort Worth Contemporary Arts Saturday evening, June 16th, 7 – 9 pm with all artists in attendance

From bonds that germinated during the Sun & Star 96 Festival in Texas, which was a celebration of the culture and traditions of Japan in the Dallas/Fort Worth Area, a friendship formed between members of the sculpture departments at Texas Christian University (TCU) and Hiroshima City University (HCU).

As the educational and artistic result of this friendship, the current students at their respective universities in Texas and Japan will further this exchange by preparing work for and participating together in two group exhibitions. The exhibitions, one in Fort Worth and one in Hiroshima in the Summer of 2012, will feature artwork by graduate and doctoral students along with their faculty advisors in the sculpture departments of both TCU and HCU.

For ten days prior to the first exhibition at Fort Worth Contemporary Arts, the visiting artists from HCU will be partnered with one of his or her transcontinental colleagues at TCU, who will act as his or her area guide and assistant as they prepare work for the exhibition. This process will be mirrored for the second exhibition in Japan, and will result in two shows that are inclusive of the same group of artists, but unique in the works they produce. The resulting collaborative exhibitions will examine how an exchange of our indigenous environments and ideas changes the way we think and create as individual artists. In the same manner that the conversation started at the Sun & Star 96 Festival, it is our hope that the partnership fostered by these exhibitions will continue to be cultivated by the academic communities we belong to, as well as by all of us within our individual artistic practices. Please join us for this very special show.

Exhibition on view June 16 – July 7, 2012 Summer Gallery Hours: Saturdays 12 – 5 pm or by appointment (contact theartgalleries@tcu.edu for appointment)

The Art Hotel Gallery Conversations Art Exhibit will start people talking

The Art Hotel Gallery presents Conversations an art exhibit featuring 16 diverse artists from The Art Hotel Collective paired with younger up and coming artists. Art becomes the conduit for bridging the gap between generations. Conversations features an exciting artistic dialogue and provides insight into creativity and the universal language of art.

The co-op artists selected artwork from students at the Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, Keller High School, Lake Highlands High School and the Shelton School. The professional artist’s visual response to the student’s work is a fascinating exchange of colors, symbols, iconography, styles and design. In the end viewers will attach their own meaning to the work.

Artists represented in this show are Carol Blanchard Parks, Jacque Forsher, Johanna Roffino Hulsey, Karen Jacobi, Melissa Wertz, Michelle Stroescu, Marilee Vergati-Haynes, Rachel Garay Kolb, Rita Barnard, Sharon Neel Bagley and Sherry Houpt. Students participating in Conversations are Abi Hernandez, Ally Hulsey, Anya Bosworth, Bunny Trahan, Cara Latimer, Elizabeth Housewright, Ellen Manning, Geovanna Cuevas, Kaity Reaves, and Tori Baker.
