White Space is proud to announce Bright Black Lines, its latest group exhibit showcasing the works of 12 artists, including featured artists John McLaughlin and JM Rizzi. The exhibit will run through December 7th. A closing reception will be held on November 29th from 6-9PM during which all works will be available for cash-and-carry purchase. JM Rizzi will also be present during the reception to create a live mural beginning at 8PM.

JM Rizzi, better known as JMR, has adapted a unique mixture of neo-abstract expressionism with hints of contemporary pop to create a style all his own. Originally hailing from Brooklyn, New York and now residing in Dallas, JMR has grown up with the influences of street art and the established art world constantly around him. Through his own individual, hybrid street style, he has dedicated himself to helping art fit into the outside world. In addition to exhibition in Dallas and New York, JMR has been featured in numerous publications and websites worldwide, including The New York Times, The London Sunday Times Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, The Village Voice, Japan Vogue, Elle Magazine, Juxtapoze Magazine, Animal Magazine, WoosterCollective.com, Brooklynstreetart.com, Huffingtonpost.com, Ekosystem.org, and Streetsy.com. Learn more about JM Rizzi at http://jmrizzi.wix.com/jmrizzi#!__public.

The work of guest artist, John McLaughlin (Michigan), explores the relationship between humans and their environment. Child-like scribbles are combined with highly finished drawing and collage elements to create abstract works that still retain references to natural and man-made objects. Entirely self-taught, McLaughlin is an intuitive artist who allows his pieces to develop organically in both form and meaning, and his works are a source of constant discovery for both him and the viewer. McLaughlin is represented in numerous art collections and reviews, including: author, Michael Corbin 30 Hottest Artists for 2012; Meat for Tea Magazine: 3 drawings chosen Jan 2012; Sarabande Books Louisville Ky. catalog cover 2012; Art of This World: Mary Ann Wakely; author Michael Corbin interview; and artist interview at Whopple.  Three of McLaughlin’s works are in the world tour exhibit “Circus Terminal” for 2012-2013, sponsored by Uncooked Culture.  Learn more about John McLaughlin at www.drawinghermit.com.

Bright Black Lines also includes the works of the following artists: Robb Conover, Nix Johnson, Christian Millet, Andy Morris, Kevin Obregon, Julia Pappas, Richard Ross, Mike Salcido, Fred Villanueva, and Hunter Wild.

White Space is Dallas’ first venue to integrate gallery space with a full-service corporate meeting and events facility, offering artists exposure to a nationwide audience and business teams an inspiring environment where they can create, explore and express their best ideas.  Situated in Dallas’ Historic West End, White Space is located at 2001 N Lamar Street, Suite 500 (corner of N Lamar & Munger).  Exhibit hours are Monday through Friday, 9AM-5PM and by appointment. Call 214.272.2450 or contact us at www.whitespacedallas.com.

“When Kodachrome was King” Mid-Show Reception Nov. 14

“When Kodachrome was King” features twenty Nash edition prints of fine art photographer, David J. Stana’s photographs taken between 1975-1985.

All are invited to the FREE and PUBLIC mid-show reception and gallery talk:

Wednesday, Nov 14, from 7-9PM 
Frisco Art Gallery at the Frisco Discovery Center 
8004 N. Dallas Parkway, 
Frisco, TX 75034. 

Please RSVP to djstana@tx.rr.com

http://www.friscodiscoverycenter.com/index.php/events/when-kodachrome-was-king-gallery-talk-and-reception/

Questions? Call 972-668-5180 or email the Exhibit Coordinator: pprater@friscoarts.org

David’s interest in photography began in 1975 when traveling throughout the country visiting all of the National Parks.

His goal was to capture the essence of the beauty that he saw and document it for others to enjoy.

During this decade of discovery he photographed with slide film. The camera was both capture device and darkroom all in one as there is very little you can do with a slide after it has been exposed. During this time, David primarily used professional Kodachrome slide film which had to be kept cool and each roll had to be documented and mailed back to the lab. In most cases he was not able to see the actual image until his return, several months after that special image was captured.

The images presented this November are twenty of his favorites; some are from his collection of award winners, including “Flight”(1975) that hung in New York’s MoMA. 

This is the first time in almost 40 years that they have been displayed and offered for viewing. 

Can’t make the reception? The exhibit closes December 1st.

CLASSIC CHILDREN’S BOOK ILLUSTRATIONS ON VIEW IN THE MEADOWS GALLERY 

The Greater Denton Arts Council presents All The World’s A Stage: Anita Lobel.

Anita Lobel’s name is synonymous with the best in children’s literature. She is the creator of such classics as Alison’s Zinnia and Away from Home, and she received a Caldecott Honor for her illustrations in On Market Street. She is the creator of three books about her cat, Nini, One Lighthouse, One Moon (a New York Times Best Illustrated Book), Nini Here and There, and Nini Lost and Found. Her childhood memoir, No Pretty Pictures: A Child of War, was a finalist for the National Book Award. Anita Lobel lives in New York City.

The author states, “I usually plan a book as a play. The pictures become ‘scenes’ with ‘principals’ and ‘chorus’ grouped and regrouped according to what is then happening in the story. Writing and illustrating books for children is a form of drama for me. I approach the construction of a picture book as if it were a theatre piece to be performed, assigning dialogue, dressing the characters, and putting them into an appropriate setting.”

This exhibition was organized by the National Center for Children’s Illustrated Literature, Abilene, TX.

The exhibition will open with a reception on Monday, November 19, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 1:00 to 5:00 pm.

About The Cedars Neighborhood

Historically, the Cedars was among Dallas’ first elegant neighborhoods, named after the forest of cedar and oak trees lining its streets. The Cedars became home to some of Dallas’ great leaders, including Alexander Sanger, of Sanger-Harris, Stanley Marcus, of Neiman-Marcus and Aaron Spelling of TV production fame. The Cedars also boasted Dallas’ first old city park (now Dallas Heritage Village), the city’s first water pump station, its first telephone exchange, first zoo, and numerous stately mansions. 

As Dallas grew, the Cedars, already home to many of the city’s leading businesses, embraced the new industrialization. The quiet, Victorian village, perched on the south edge of Downtown Dallas, became a thriving industrial center with factories and warehouses, such as the old Sears-Roebuck building (now South Side on Lamar lofts), which is home to numerous artists and civic leaders. Eventually, as commerce evolved, the Cedars became ripe for a new wave of people who realized the potential of this convenient, eclectic and historic neighborhood. These people are now transforming the Cedars into a unique community that nurtures vibrant, creative people who enrich Dallas with character and culture. The Cedars Open Studio Tour is an annual celebration of this evolving, eclectic neighborhood. 

The Cedars is located just south of Downtown Dallas and I-30, between I-35 and I-45.  Dallas Heritage Village (formerly Old City Park) will serve as the hub for the event, and their gates will be open free to the public along with free parking. South Side on Lamar, Corinth Park, Lee Harvey’s and participating artists will also provide free parking.  The DART Cedars Station is within walking distance of numerous artists’ studios. Visit www.cedarsopenstudios.com for a map of the tour and more information.

About The Cedars Open Studios

The Cedars is home to fine artists and craftsmen working in every genre. Their studios, just south of downtown, have helped the neighborhood come alive. Once a year the studios are open to the public. Come see where ideas are created, and where art, community and economic development come together to make the Cedars such a unique area of Dallas.

FWCAC: November in the Arts Center

 

In the Spotlight 
Cozette Phillips

What instigated this series of artworks?

I am interested in humanity’s changing relationship to wild animals. With the introduction of taxidermy, television and the internet, our experience with the animal is more likely to occur in our living room or from the comfort of our favorite armchair.

 

Which came first for you – the idea or the materials?

The idea came first. I felt that it was important to incorporate materials that reinforced the Victorian era aesthetic. During that time period, taxidermy became a popular hobby of the leisure class, gaining entry into the home environment as well as museum collections. Hunting was no longer just for survival, but for sport, thereby altering our relationship to the animal and its natural environment.

Blissful Blues and Pointillism Purples: Susan Mapes Kemper opens Nov. 19

The Greater Denton Arts Council presents Blissful Blues and Pointillism Purples: Susan Mapes Kemper.

Kemper’s brightly colored, textural paintings feature the subjects that surround her, such as plants, animals, and other objects of domestic life. For her usually humorous paintings, Kemper employs a semi-pointillist style that she calls Blue Collar Impressionism.

She has degrees in Biology and English and taught science for 30 years. She began to paint after she retired.

“Like most folk artists, I am not a professionally trained artist, and have developed this style because I like to use texture and bright colors,” Kemper states.

The exhibition will open with a reception on Monday, November 19, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 1:00 to 5:00 pm.

The Center for the Visual Arts is located at 400 E. Hickory Street, Denton, Texas, 76201.

McKinney Artist Studio Tour: Nov. 10 & 11

 

McKINNEY ARTIST STUDIO TOUR PUTS LOCAL ARTISTS ON THE MAP. MAST connects community with artists in their studios:
 
DATES: Nov. 10: 10am-7pm
Nov. 11: noon-5pm

McKINNEY, Texas (October 23, 2012) – Twenty two artists and three galleries from the greater McKinney area are participating in the 4th Annual McKinney Artist Studio Tour (MAST), a collaboration that provides a unified voice among McKinney’s visual artists to generate awareness of local artists and enhance the public art experience.

This is the forth year for the artists to open their studios to the community. Each year, the tour surpasses expectations – growing both in the number of artists participating and in the number of people visiting the artists’ studios. The artists are making their entire process of creation visible, giving those who come to the tour a chance to see what goes on behind-the-scenes.

“I had the privilege of going on the first White Rock Lake Artists Studio Tour in the mid-90’s. There were 11 studios on the tour. This year there were 47 studios and 5 art centers. I wanted to start this in McKinney,” said MAST founder, pottery artist and teacher Sona Knox, downtown McKinney Art House.

MAST is comprised of McKinney visual artists who create original works of art and art galleries who promote local artists. This fall’s show embodies the group’s heart-felt mission, which is to introduce the public to artists in their studios and to spark interest in the processes, materials and ideas related to art.

Although the artists work in diverse ways with a wide variety of media, they all share a passion for creating art. Some are critically acclaimed artists whose work has been collected world-wide. Others are emerging on the art scene. The McKinney Artist Studio Tour brings together this selection of artists at various stages in their careers. MAST gives the public a chance to explore the ways in which the artists approach their art practices through the use of techniques, materials and processes.

The galleries on the tour are all located in Historic Downtown McKinney. They are The Garret Art Gallery, Orisons and Diggin It.

Artists participating in the open studio tour are found on both the historic east side of McKinney as well as the west side. They are: Pattie Bowler – watercolors, acrylics and mixed media; Pernie Fallon – pastel, oil; Guy Giersch – photography; Weeda Hamdan – oil and mixed media; Lynne Hubner – printmaking; Sona Knox – pottery, painting, teaching; Leo Malboeuf – oil; Kerry Randol-Johnston – pottery, painting; Cate Robbins – 2D media; Anne Royer –

acrylic and oil; L.C.

MAST is a once-a-year opportunity to visit the artists in their own creative environments where they are surrounded by their preferred objects of inspiration — the things they collect, the things they are given, the things they make, the things they love, the things that motivate them as they go through their creative process. While you are there, you will more than likely be lucky enough to bump into some of the most influential sources of the artists’ encouragement and insight – the studio dogs and cats, children, students, family, friends, neighbors, collectors and other artists who are such essential elements, even muses, of each studio. What better way to appreciate the artists and collect their art than on this most personal level?

Tickets for this event are $7 per person and may be purchased at the participatiing galleries in downtown McKinney. Tickets are also available at each art studio and via http://mast2012.eventbrite.com

McKinney Artist Studio Tour: Nov. 10 & 11

 

McKINNEY ARTIST STUDIO TOUR PUTS LOCAL ARTISTS ON THE MAP. MAST connects community with artists in their studios:
 
DATES: Nov. 10: 10am-7pm
Nov. 11: noon-5pm

McKINNEY, Texas (October 23, 2012) – Twenty two artists and three galleries from the greater McKinney area are participating in the 4th Annual McKinney Artist Studio Tour (MAST), a collaboration that provides a unified voice among McKinney’s visual artists to generate awareness of local artists and enhance the public art experience.

This is the forth year for the artists to open their studios to the community. Each year, the tour surpasses expectations – growing both in the number of artists participating and in the number of people visiting the artists’ studios. The artists are making their entire process of creation visible, giving those who come to the tour a chance to see what goes on behind-the-scenes.

“I had the privilege of going on the first White Rock Lake Artists Studio Tour in the mid-90’s. There were 11 studios on the tour. This year there were 47 studios and 5 art centers. I wanted to start this in McKinney,” said MAST founder, pottery artist and teacher Sona Knox, downtown McKinney Art House.

MAST is comprised of McKinney visual artists who create original works of art and art galleries who promote local artists. This fall’s show embodies the group’s heart-felt mission, which is to introduce the public to artists in their studios and to spark interest in the processes, materials and ideas related to art.

Although the artists work in diverse ways with a wide variety of media, they all share a passion for creating art. Some are critically acclaimed artists whose work has been collected world-wide. Others are emerging on the art scene. The McKinney Artist Studio Tour brings together this selection of artists at various stages in their careers. MAST gives the public a chance to explore the ways in which the artists approach their art practices through the use of techniques, materials and processes.

The galleries on the tour are all located in Historic Downtown McKinney. They are The Garret Art Gallery, Orisons and Diggin It.

Artists participating in the open studio tour are found on both the historic east side of McKinney as well as the west side. They are: Pattie Bowler – watercolors, acrylics and mixed media; Pernie Fallon – pastel, oil; Guy Giersch – photography; Weeda Hamdan – oil and mixed media; Lynne Hubner – printmaking; Sona Knox – pottery, painting, teaching; Leo Malboeuf – oil; Kerry Randol-Johnston – pottery, painting; Cate Robbins – 2D media; Anne Royer –

acrylic and oil; L.C. Tobey – art glass; Ann Williams – photography and multimedia; Carol Williams – watercolor, charcoal; Linda Alred – Acrylics, Ink, Pencil; Kelly Bartlett – Oil Pastels; Laura Canfield – Pottery; Julia Forsyth – Printmaking; K.D. Hafley – Acrylics; Gail McLaughlin – Pottery, Watercolor; Lisa LaBarge – Pottery; Kristin Sholl – Sculpture, Painting; Pattie Bowler – Acrylic, Mixed Media, Watercolor and Renee Wrenwood – watercolor.

Art Con 8 Artist List


The mission of Art Conspiracy is to inspire Dallas art and music scenes to join forces for the benefit of a local non-profit art and/or music organization.

Art Conspiracy is at it again, bringing their signature artist antics, local music, ruckus live auction and thousands of fellow conspirators to a warehouse near you.

On Saturday, November 10, Art Con 8 will invade 960 Dragon Street from 7pm to midnight. More than 150 artists converge on a warehouse-turned-art studio to create unique works of art on Art Con’s signature 18×18-inch plywood boards that will be auctioned live in a fun, free-for-all format. Art Conspiracy events are designed to be affordable and offer everyone a chance to purchase original artwork with opening bids starting at $20.

In between crazy art auctions, local bands Blackstone Rangers, Daniel Hart, and headliner Burning Hotels will play the Art Con 8-bit pixelated, digitized, CMYK stage designed by Conspirator and visual artist, Edward Ruiz.

“Art Conspiracy brings artists on-site to create artwork,” says Erik Glissmann, Executive Director, Art Conspiracy. “We bring the artist community and audience involvement together for a unique style of fundraising. The event serves as an annual showcase of emerging visual artists and musicians. The all-volunteer Art Conspiracy team transforms the venue into a pop-up gallery/concert hall with a fresh look every year.”

Art Conspiracy was formed to create awareness for the arts, and to bring artists and musicians together to “conspire” for the benefit of a local nonprofit arts organization. Nonprofits with an annual budget of less than $400,000 that offer creative programming in the form of art or music that gives back to youth, families, and citizens within the Dallas city limits are considered to be chosen as the Art Conspiracy’s annual beneficiary.

This year Art Conspiracy is proud to announce two beneficiaries will receive funds:

Girls Rock Dallas is dedicated to empowering girls and women through the use of music education to promote self-esteem and confidence. They provide girls in the Dallas area a safe female-oriented place to fully express themselves without the worries of negative peer pressures or judgment. Their programs allow girls and women to have access to music education, thereby cultivating their creative side.

W. T. White Academy of Visual and Performing Arts – Ceramics Program is dedicated to helping students succeed, regardless of socioeconomic status, physical, mental, or language limitations, or lack of previous education. The Ceramics Program is funded from donations and/or student sponsorships. It serves 300+ students per year, allowing them opportunity to express themselves through clay.

Since 2005, Art Conspiracy has raised over $140,000 for groups including:

Musical Angels, a program that teaches hospitalized children to make music with their own hands and hearts.

Today Marks the Beginning’s MasterPEACE program which uses art to impact awareness of social issues and teach children about non- violence.

Resolana, a community-based nonprofit organization that provides holistic, gender-sensitive, rehabilitative programming for incarcerated women.

Preservation LINK, an organization that teaches audio and visual media to students in South Dallas and Fair Park.

La Reunion TX, an arts residency in the making on a 35 acre urban forest engaged as outdoor studio space and gallery.

St. Anthony Community Center, a center that offers visual art, music and dance to more than 800 children in South Dallas.

Art Conspiracy is proud to partner with Art&Seek, which brings coverage of North Texas arts and culture to KERA FM, KERA television, KXT 91.7 FM and to the web at artandseek.org. This year Art&Seek volunteers will be at Art Conspiracy offering all co-conspirators a chance to flex their creative muscles by creating an 8-bit graffiti installation.

Art Conspiracy is street level philanthropy. Members of the creative community in North Texas pool their talents to create bi-annual fundraising events that support other nonprofit arts programs. Art Conspiracy events are designed to be affordable and offer everyone a chance to purchase original artwork at a reasonable level. Art Conspiracy is a 501c3 organization with IRS nonprofit status (so your donations are tax deductible!) More information is available
