24th Annual VideoFest Sept. 21-25

The 24th Annual VideoFest will open Sept. 21 with a special screening of Jean-Luc Godard’s latest film Socialism at 7 p.m. at The Texas Theatre in North Oak Cliff. The remainder of the VideoFest screenings will be at the Angelika Film Center at Mockingbird Station in Dallas, Sept. 22-25, 2011.

The oldest and largest video and film festival in the nation, VideoFest shows a diverse range of works by regional, national and international video and film artists that are hard to find at the local video store, the movie theater or on Netflix. Because VideoFest is different than a traditional film festival or just going to a movie, expect something different!  This year we want to really show Dallas what VideoFest is all about; we want to rock the boat, push buttons, and take the new advent of media to the next level. We have opened a new category that we feel expresses exactly what we wish to achieve: The Subgenre. We are looking for music videos, skating videos, and similar projects that represent counterculture and subculture. These are the underground films, the Harriet Tubman’s, the Tyler Durdens, the middle fingers of cinema and television, if you will. For the fourth year in a row, VideoFest will be presented thru iTunes.

Media sponsors are D Magazine and Arts+Culture.

Highlights of this year’s VideoFest include:

the winner of the “Silence The Opera Singer” for Angelika theaters nationwide;

the winner of D Magazine’s “Dallas Stories” competition;

the winners of the 24 Hour Video Race;

the winner of 8th Annual Albert Mayles Award for an emerging documentarian;

The Texas Show, a juried compilation of short film and video by Texas artists;

Guts N Glory, a live performance event where teams shoot 100 feet of film in sequence then VF develops it in time for event without the teams seeing it, meanwhile the teams create a performance piece to accompany their films;

Siggraph Electronic Theater, the best selections from this annual computer graphics event;

The London International Advertising Awards, the best commercials from around the world;

Slackers Dallas Style, marking the 20 Year Anniversary of the pivotal film Slackers by Texas Filmmaker Richard Linklater.

Wednesday, Sept. 21st  7 p.m.*

Thursday, Sept. 22nd  7-11:30 p.m.

Friday, Sept. 23rd  7-11:30 p.m.

Saturday, Sept. 24th  noon-11:30 p.m.

Sunday, Sept. 25th  10:30 a.m.-10 p.m.

Patrons may purchase day passes ($25 or $35 depending on day) or All-Festival passes ($150) for over 150 programs making this Festival the best deal in town. Seniors (60 or older) get $10 off. Some selected programs will be $6 per program available at event only. Tickets will be available at the door or online at videofest.org. Visit www.videofest.org for more information or call 214-428-8700.

ABOUT VIDEOFEST 

VideoFest is now the oldest and largest video festival in the United States, and continues to garner critical and popular acclaim. Since 1986, VideoFest has specialized in independent, alternative, and non-commercial media, presenting hard-to-find works rarely seen on television, in movie theaters, or elsewhere, despite their artistic excellence and cultural and social relevance. Even in a Web 2.0 environment where everything is seemingly available on the Internet, the VideoFest provides curatorial guidance, a critical voice in the wilderness navigating the vast and diverse landscape of media, helping to interpret its cultural and artistic significance. The event still provides a communal environment for real-time, face-to-face dialogue between makers and audiences.

ABOUT VIDEO ASSOCIATION OF DALLAS

The mission of the Video Association is to promote an understanding of video as a creative medium and cultural force in our society, and to support and advance the work of Texas artists working in video and the electronic arts.   The Video Association of Dallas (VAD) is a 501(c)(3) organization incorporated on April 25, 1989.   It began in 1986 a weekend event, “Video As A Creative Medium”, presented at the Dallas Museum of Art by independent curators Barton Weiss and John Held. That first event, which included two nights of video by selected local and national video artists, was a great popular success, which led to the founding of the Dallas Video Festival (DVF) in 1987.  Video Association of Dallas presents the 24 Hour Video Race, The Program at Conduit Gallery, the Texas Tour, the Youth Media Jam, Three Star Cinema, Rock n Reel, college showcases and other programs throughout the year.

Elva Robinson & Geraldine Brettman exhibit

This month’s exhibit in the Irving Art Association’s East Gallery features local artists Elva Robinson and Geraldine Brettman. It will be on view through August 25th at the Jaycee Park Center for the Arts in Irving. For more images click here.

ELVA ROBINSON

Elva Robinson is a Fort Worth resident, and a self-taught artist. She has worked in a variety of arts and crafts media over the course of her life, but only within the past few years has she begun to seriously consider art as a career. She is currently working in a unique combination of photography, digital manipulation, and paper sculpture, sometimes combined with acrylics.

Elva believes in constantly asking “What if?” This is what led to the technique she is using now, and she continues to ask the same question as she explores the possibilities of using other media in combination with what she is already doing. She believes that to stop questioning what she does is to invite stagnation of the creative process. Website: www.robinsongimages.com

GERALDINE BRETTMAN

I’m constantly looking for new and better ways to convey my inner thoughts and ideas. I bring together all of these experiments in my artwork with the results being what the viewer sees in the end. I use color to set a somber mood and then carry on with a rough overlay of color and grind down the color to a white or lighter background keeping the color above. I prefer to render my lines horizontally and bring a vertical line through the horizontal lines to stop the viewer from exiting the piece. The large vertical line also brings them back into the  horizontals and there the viewer notices the texture in the piece.

My work is influenced by my exposure to the Southwest to which I was born and raised in Northern New Mexico where I grew up. The land was always in front of me and there would always be something breaking up the land, whether it, be a mountain, a pine tree, a post, a telephone pole.  The horizontals in my work are the land the strong vertical is the object that breaks up the land. The textures are the roughness and rawness that is so much a part of the southwest.

The land was always in front of me and there would always be something breaking up the land, whether it, be a mountain, a pine tree, a post, a telephone pole.  The horizontals in my work are the land the strong vertical is the object that breaks up the land. The textures are the roughness and rawness that is so much a part of the southwest.

Dallas Art Dealers Association Fall Gallery Walk Sept. 24

The annual Fall Gallery Walk will be Saturday, Sept. 24, 2–8 p.m. and will feature over 35 of DADA’s member galleries, museums, and nonprofit art spaces. This FREE event allows art lovers to socialize and roam (in a car) from gallery to gallery all in one day. A new part of the DADA Gallery Walks is the DADA Docents program. Select DADA galleries will host high school and community college students who are trained as docents to help educate the public and hone the students’ public speaking skills.  Donation jars for the Edith Baker Art Scholarship and Artist Career Development Fund will be on hand. See www.dallasartdealers.org for a downloadable Gallery Guide and a Fall Gallery Walk flyer with exhibition listings. Hours vary; please see individual listings. Call 214.914.1099 or e-mail info@dallasartdealers.org. Arts & Culture DFW is the media sponsor of the event. 

As is customary, DADA will offer educational opportunities via its panel discussions for artists and art lovers on the morning of Fall Gallery Walk. This Fall the panels will focus on  Art of Oak Cliff: Then and Now.  Panel 1 will be from 10:30 a.m. to noon and is entitled Oak Cliff Art Then.  Panel 2 will be from 1 to 2:30 p.m. and is entitled Oak Cliff Art Now.  Panelists are to be announced. Tickets ($10 per panel) can be purchased online atwww.dallasartdealers.org or at the door. Proceeds benefit DADA’s Edith Baker Art Scholarship and Artist Career Development Fund. The panel discussions will be held at Oak Cliff Cultural Center, 223 W. Jefferson Blvd. This year the Creative Arts Center is partnering with DADA to present these panels.  Funding is provided by Office of Cultural Affairs City of Dallas and Texas Commission on the Arts. 

 The MAC, 3120 McKinney Ave., will showcase the finalists for the Edith Baker Art Scholarship at a reception on Sept. 9, 5–7 pm. All of the proceeds benefit the student artists and DADA’s Edith Baker Art Scholarship and Artist Career Development Fund. The exhibition and reception are free. The exhibition continues through Sept. 11. Call 214-953-1212 for more information about the exhibition or visit http://www.the-mac.org.

ABOUT DADA

The Dallas Art Dealers Association is an affiliation of established independent gallery owners and not-for-profit art organizations in the Dallas metropolitan area. DADA serves as a standard bearer for ethical practices in the art business, as an educational resource for the community at large, and as the facilitator of the Edith Baker Art Scholarship and Artist Career Development Fund, which provides funding for visual art students. The Dallas Art Dealers Association, organized in 1985 by June Mattingly of Mattingly Baker Gallery, is a 501(c)(6) organization. 

Like the Art Dealers Association of America, membership in DADA is by invitation of the board of directors. In order to qualify for membership, a dealer or nonprofit space must have an established reputation for honesty, integrity, and professionalism among their peers, and must make a substantial contribution to the cultural life of the community by offering works of high aesthetic quality and presenting worthwhile exhibitions. DADA is dedicated to promoting the highest standards of ethical practice within the profession and to increasing public awareness of the role and responsibilities of reputable art dealers and nonprofit visual art spaces.

ABOUT THE EDITH BAKER ART SCHOLARSHIP AND ARTIST CAREER DEVELOPMENT FUND
 

To celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2005, DADA created a scholarship honoring a respected member of the Dallas art community and one of its founding members, Edith Baker. Edith owned and directed The Edith Baker Gallery in Dallas for nearly thirty years before retiring in 2004. Every year, the Edith Baker Art Scholarship and Artist Career Development Fund financially benefits a student pursuing the study of visual arts in college as well as presents Art Chicas at La Reunion TX, a career fair at Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, juried exhibitions of Booker T. and Dallas County Community College students’ artwork, and biannual educational events.

ABOUT CREATIVE ARTS CENTER

Creative Arts Center of Dallas (CAC) provides a nurturing environment for people to discover, develop, and express their artistic visions.  Located on a two-acre campus four miles east of downtown Dallas, CAC offers more than 500 classes and workshops per year in such disciplines as ceramics, clay sculpture, drawing, glass, jewelry, metal arts, mosaic, painting, photography, printmaking, and stone carving. CAC also offers free arts programming to disadvantaged children. Not only a visual arts school, CAC is also a thriving arts community for a diverse range of students from teens to seniors.  Visit CAC at 2360 Laughlin Drive in East Dallas or http://www.creativeartscenter.org.

Select DADA galleries will host high school and community college students who are trained as docents to help educate the public and hone the students’ public speaking skills.  Donation jars for the Edith Baker Art Scholarship and Artist Career Development Fund will be on hand. See www.dallasartdealers.org for a downloadable Gallery Guide and a Fall Gallery Walk flyer with exhibition listings. Hours vary; please see individual listings. Call 214.914.1099 or e-mail info@dallasartdealers.org. Arts & Culture DFW is the media sponsor of the event. 

As is customary, DADA will offer educational opportunities via its panel discussions for artists and art lovers on the morning of Fall Gallery Walk. This Fall the panels will focus on  Art of Oak Cliff: Then and Now.  Panel 1 will be from 10:30 a.m. to noon and is entitled Oak Cliff Art Then.  Panel 2 will be from 1 to 2:30 p.m. and is entitled Oak Cliff Art Now.  Panelists are to be announced. Tickets ($10 per panel) can be purchased online atwww.dallasartdealers.org or at the door. Proceeds benefit DADA’s Edith Baker Art Scholarship and Artist Career Development Fund. The panel discussions will be held at Oak Cliff Cultural Center, 223 W. Jefferson Blvd. This year the Creative Arts Center is partnering with DADA to present these panels.  Funding is provided by Office of Cultural Affairs City of Dallas and Texas Commission on the Arts. 

 The MAC, 3120 McKinney Ave., will showcase the finalists for the Edith Baker Art Scholarship at a reception on Sept. 9, 5–7 pm. All of the proceeds benefit the student artists and DADA’s Edith Baker Art Scholarship and Artist Career Development Fund. The exhibition and reception are free.

ABOUT DADA

The Dallas Art Dealers Association is an affiliation of established independent gallery owners and not-for-profit art organizations in the Dallas metropolitan area. DADA serves as a standard bearer for ethical practices in the art business, as an educational resource for the community at large, and as the facilitator of the Edith Baker Art Scholarship and Artist Career Development Fund, which provides funding for visual art students. The Dallas Art Dealers Association, organized in 1985 by June Mattingly of Mattingly Baker Gallery, is a 501(c)(6) organization. 

Like the Art Dealers Association of America, membership in DADA is by invitation of the board of directors. In order to qualify for membership, a dealer or nonprofit space must have an established reputation for honesty, integrity, and professionalism among their peers, and must make a substantial contribution to the cultural life of the community by offering works of high aesthetic quality and presenting worthwhile exhibitions. DADA is dedicated to promoting the highest standards of ethical practice within the profession and to increasing public awareness of the role and responsibilities of reputable art dealers and nonprofit visual art spaces.

ABOUT THE EDITH BAKER ART SCHOLARSHIP AND ARTIST CAREER DEVELOPMENT FUND
 

To celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2005, DADA created a scholarship honoring a respected member of the Dallas art community and one of its founding members, Edith Baker. Edith owned and directed The Edith Baker Gallery in Dallas for nearly thirty years before retiring in 2004. Every year, the Edith Baker Art Scholarship and Artist Career Development Fund financially benefits a student pursuing the study of visual arts in college as well as presents Art Chicas at La Reunion TX, a career fair at Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, juried exhibitions of Booker T. and Dallas County Community College students’ artwork, and biannual educational events.
