FWCAC June Events

Several new exhibits brighten up June for us. We hope to see you here on June 8th to meet the artists. The Focus Galleries highlight an Austin artist’s paintings of mysterious places, constructed out of the everyday but eluding identification as such; and a Denton artist who literally constructs work out of concrete, encasing fibers and textural and even textual material.

In other galleries: Classical paintings; collage and assemblages; textured paintings; angels and moons for sale; travel photography; more collage and assemblages; and the TAC Featured Artist’s collage work.

In the Theatres: dance, dance and more dance, interspersed with a dramatic play, a trip to Oz and jukebox heaven.

Z’s Cafe offers a diverse menu of reasonably-priced specials every day, plus panini, sandwiches and salads. Eat at Z’s and get a voucher for FREE PARKING! Externs from the Fort Worth Culinary School and Le Cordon Bleu of Dallas are working with Z’s, so they will be having some Super Special entrees this summer.

Remember! If you park in the Western Heritage Garage, we can give you a voucher for $3 off your parking of 90 minutes or less!

Special events this month: gallery reception; two musical theatre camps; a special dinner; and a bachelor auction. For more details on these and other events. 
Gallery receptions are free and open to the public.

  • Focus Gallery One: Inside. Outside
  • Through June 23, 2012
    Through June 23, 2012

    The paintings of Gladys Poorte represent interiors and landscapes which are the product of a long process of construction. They are also concerned with the relationship among objects and characters in a place, their tension or balance, the dance or the stillness among them.

    According to Poorte, “It’s the artist acting as Creator, building universes; or as a child, building imaginary worlds to play in; or as a stage designer building a set where a story will take place.” Her work explores the need to play, to rehearse, to build models.

  • Focus Gallery Two: Stratum
  • Through June 23, 2012
    Through June 23, 2012

    Over the past 6 years Lesli Robertson has traveled to Uganda and worked with Ugandan cultural arts. Her research has allowed her to work with textile elements from her personal collection, as well as those acquired in Uganda, to create sculptures that explore the relevance, history and identity associated with these materials.

    In her current body of work, Robertson is taking elements and works from the past and employing them in new forms that serve to document and comment on the material objects that define our personal time. “The process of layering these fragile pieces within concrete is meant to pose a delicate balance between the materials; the layers allude to written text and recordings.”

    Focus Gallery Exhibitions are presented by the Exhibition Advisory Panel of the Fort Worth Community Arts Center. The mission of the EAP is to exhibit contemporary art with a focus on regional artists in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana.

  • Classical Artists AraDona and Julia
  • Reception for the Artists
    June 8, 20126 – 9PM
    June 2 – 29, 2012

    Award-winning artists AraDona and Julia Stjernström are influenced and inspired by the great art treasures of the Old Italian Master Painters. Julia captures the feeling of motion in the image. Her anatomical knowledge and skill in composition reflect the strong impact the classical era has on her work. Aradona is known for his portraiture and his ability to depict the heart of the subject, whether human or animal.

    In this exhibit, AraDona and Julia are presenting their artworks from the time following their academic studies in Florence. The paintings were produced in Italy, Sweden and the U.S., and display a broad spectrum of genres from Renaissance-style to Nordic wildlife to the figure in Scandinavian landscapes. Also included are paintings that resulted from a unique opportunity, when the two artists were allowed to paint the dancers from the Royal Opera of Sweden.

  • Artifacts of Faith, Hope and Love
  • Reception for the Artist
    June 8, 20126 – 9PM
    June 6 – 29, 2012

    Michele Mayfield is a self-taught artist of 20 years. She specializes in altered art books/journals and collage pieces. Michele’s art is a three dimensional expression of faith, hope and love through brilliantly colored and textured objects.

  • Nature’s Surroundings
  • Reception for the Artist
    June 8, 20126 – 9PM
    June 6 – 29, 2012

    Coming to art as a second career, Colleen A. Zeiler gained a variety of life experiences and now views art as a vehicle of self-expression. Her interests include landscape paintings that display a three-dimensional effect with texture through the use of impasto and pallete knife.

    Zeiler’s cultural background and experiences, as well as the influences of those around her, have imbued her work with a passion for life and nature, rather than the somber tones or the emotions that are representative of some of life’s struggles. She continues to explore and communicate her view of nature through the expression of her artwork, utilizing non-traditional painting processes.

  • Angeluna Sale
  • Art Sale
    June 8, 20126 – 9PM
    June 8 – 29, 2012

    Remember Angeluna Restaurant? Remember the thematic paintings on the wall? When Angeluna closed, they asked us to take the paintings. Many have been returned to the artists or their families. The rest were either donated back to the FWCAC or the artists were never found or identified. We have a few great examples of those works here at the FWCAC, and we are offering them for sale as a fundraiser for us this month.

    Come in and purchase a bit of Fort Worth history!

  • 24 Months
  • Reception for the Artist
    June 8, 20126 – 9PM
    June 6 – June 29, 2012

    The images in this collection are photographs taken by Danny Deen in the past 24 months in Alaska, Tanzania, Tuscany, Venice, Patagonia, and Cuba. Deen and his dad shared a passion for photography, but he was encouraged by his dad to make it a hobby – not a profession. So at the age of 50, Deen finally had time to begin taking some photography workshops and has been traveling and photographing ever since.

  • Casting Shadows
  • Reception for the Artist
    June 8, 20126 – 9PM
    June 6 – 29, 2012

    Scott Wright is drawn to the aged, the battered, the discarded and the forgotten. Incorporating found objects, consumer detritus, bits of this and that, the effluvia of our shared, forgotten and infinitely manufactured landscape, Wright’s sculptural assemblage pieces contain objects and materials that are easily recognizable; familiar items heavily used, cherished mementos of lives long gone. Each piece contains both the familiar and the new, yet resonate with a history both real and mythical, reminding us of our fleeting and tentative place within the world we share.

  • Texas Artists Coalition Featured Artist: Nancy Standlee; Torn Paper Paintings
  • Through June 29, 2012
    Through June 29, 2012

    Nancy Standlee’s art is a means of self expression and it is always evolving and taking a new direction. She tends to use intuitive colors and is comfortable with representational and non-objective subjects. Nancy says, “I don’t strive for a photographic reproduction of an image as I feel like a camera can do a better job. Art has an emotional dimension and I’d like to leave something for the viewer’s imagination.”

  • SPECIAL EVENTS:
  • June 8, 2012; 6 – 9PM: Gallery Receptions
    Receptions for all the new exhibits in the galleries. Park in the Western Heritage Garage and receive a parking voucher for $3 off parking.

Her research has allowed her to work with textile elements from her personal collection, as well as those acquired in Uganda, to create sculptures that explore the relevance, history and identity associated with these materials.

    In her current body of work, Robertson is taking elements and works from the past and employing them in new forms that serve to document and comment on the material objects that define our personal time. “The process of layering these fragile pieces within concrete is meant to pose a delicate balance between the materials; the layers allude to written text and recordings.”

    Focus Gallery Exhibitions are presented by the Exhibition Advisory Panel of the Fort Worth Community Arts Center. The mission of the EAP is to exhibit contemporary art with a focus on regional artists in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana.

  • Classical Artists AraDona and Julia
  • Reception for the Artists
    June 8, 20126 – 9PM
    June 2 – 29, 2012

    Award-winning artists AraDona and Julia Stjernström are influenced and inspired by the great art treasures of the Old Italian Master Painters. Julia captures the feeling of motion in the image. Her anatomical knowledge and skill in composition reflect the strong impact the classical era has on her work. Aradona is known for his portraiture and his ability to depict the heart of the subject, whether human or animal.

    In this exhibit, AraDona and Julia are presenting their artworks from the time following their academic studies in Florence. The paintings were produced in Italy, Sweden and the U.S., and display a broad spectrum of genres from Renaissance-style to Nordic wildlife to the figure in Scandinavian landscapes. Also included are paintings that resulted from a unique opportunity, when the two artists were allowed to paint the dancers from the Royal Opera of Sweden.

  • Artifacts of Faith, Hope and Love
  • Reception for the Artist
    June 8, 20126 – 9PM
    June 6 – 29, 2012

    Michele Mayfield is a self-taught artist of 20 years. She specializes in altered art books/journals and collage pieces. Michele’s art is a three dimensional expression of faith, hope and love through brilliantly colored and textured objects.

  • Nature’s Surroundings
  • Reception for the Artist
    June 8, 20126 – 9PM
    June 6 – 29, 2012

    Coming to art as a second career, Colleen A. Zeiler gained a variety of life experiences and now views art as a vehicle of self-expression. Her interests include landscape paintings that display a three-dimensional effect with texture through the use of impasto and pallete knife.

    Zeiler’s cultural background and experiences, as well as the influences of those around her, have imbued her work with a passion for life and nature, rather than the somber tones or the emotions that are representative of some of life’s struggles. She continues to explore and communicate her view of nature through the expression of her artwork, utilizing non-traditional painting processes.

  • Angeluna Sale
  • Art Sale
    June 8, 20126 – 9PM
    June 8 – 29, 2012

    Remember Angeluna Restaurant? Remember the thematic paintings on the wall? When Angeluna closed, they asked us to take the paintings. Many have been returned to the artists or their families. The rest were either donated back to the FWCAC or the artists were never found or identified. We have a few great examples of those works here at the FWCAC, and we are offering them for sale as a fundraiser for us this month.

    Come in and purchase a bit of Fort Worth history!

  • 24 Months
  • Reception for the Artist
    June 8, 20126 – 9PM
    June 6 – June 29, 2012

    The images in this collection are photographs taken by Danny Deen in the past 24 months in Alaska, Tanzania, Tuscany, Venice, Patagonia, and Cuba. Deen and his dad shared a passion for photography, but he was encouraged by his dad to make it a hobby – not a profession. So at the age of 50, Deen finally had time to begin taking some photography workshops and has been traveling and photographing ever since.

  • Casting Shadows
  • Reception for the Artist
    June 8, 20126 – 9PM
    June 6 – 29, 2012

    Scott Wright is drawn to the aged, the battered, the discarded and the forgotten. Incorporating found objects, consumer detritus, bits of this and that, the effluvia of our shared, forgotten and infinitely manufactured landscape, Wright’s sculptural assemblage pieces contain objects and materials that are easily recognizable; familiar items heavily used, cherished mementos of lives long gone. Each piece contains both the familiar and the new, yet resonate with a history both real and mythical, reminding us of our fleeting and tentative place within the world we share.

  • Texas Artists Coalition Featured Artist: Nancy Standlee; Torn Paper Paintings
  • Through June 29, 2012
    Through June 29, 2012

    Nancy Standlee’s art is a means of self expression and it is always evolving and taking a new direction. She tends to use intuitive colors and is comfortable with representational and non-objective subjects. Nancy says, “I don’t strive for a photographic reproduction of an image as I feel like a camera can do a better job. Art has an emotional dimension and I’d like to leave something for the viewer’s imagination.”

    Small Breaths: Recent Works by Cat Snapp opens June 15

    The Greater Denton Arts Council presents Small Breaths: Recent Works by Cat SnappMs. Snapp’s recent work explores the physical interaction with book and box structures in abstract sculptural form. The viewer is invited to touch and manipulate these hand-made compartments, pages, and pieces as a point of meditation on human interaction. The work employs stitching, printed patterns, compulsive repetition of shapes, and varied textural surfaces as one would explore automatic drawing to search emotions, desires and fears about one’s personal relationships.

    The artist’s book form is an interactive art form in which the completion of a piece occurs once the reader handles it. It is because of this vital interaction that these pieces exist in this format. A close conversation takes place between the book and the viewer. It is a one-on-one, intimate experience, much like two people might become involved in a heart-bearing conversation. The viewer guides the discussion by choosing where to start, when to turn the page, how long to pause and when to return. The book functions as a conduit in expressing thoughts that typically cannot be shared with others and as much as it is its own entity, its function as a channel of communication between two people is essential. It provides an opportunity for both artist and reader to express thoughts that typically might not emerge in direct conversation.

    In her artist’s statement, Ms. Snapp says, “I want the viewer to replicate physically what occurs mentally in these various situations presented. I want the viewer to take apart and reorganize pieces that explore ideas of anxiety and control. If a book is influenced by the hiding away of emotions, then the viewer will be unable to access the most important part of a piece. Just as in relationships and conversations, some clues as to the intention of pieces are subtle, indistinct, and the receiver of these cues interprets them as one’s experience and willingness allows.”

    Small Breaths: Recent Works by Cat Snapp will be on display from June 15 through July 22, 2012. The opening reception will be Friday, June 15, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. The exhibit is open Tuesday through Sunday from 1:00 to 5:00 pm.  Admission is free.

    The Frontiers of Flight Museum presents Vectors: Abstractions in Aviation Art June 15

    The Frontiers of Flight Museum will open the art exhibition Vectors: Abstractions in Aviation Art by Don Parr on Friday, June 15. The exhibition that features abstract paintings and constructions with aviation themes will be on display through Sept. 21. Hours are Mondays-Saturdays 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sundays 1-5 p.m. The Frontiers of Flight Museum is located at 6911 Lemmon Avenue, Dallas, Texas 75209. For information, call 214-350-3600 or visit The Flight Museum website. 

    Dates:

    June 15-September 21, 2012

    About the Artist

    Don Parr is a Dallas financial advisor and artist. While living in New York City in the 1970s, he was inspired by the contemporary artists in the abstract impressionist, minimalist and color field genres and created his first paintings. After a 35-year hiatus he returned to his art, using color field and abstract impressionist techniques with aviation themes. Many of his current works employ aluminum panels and constructions with aircraft designs and are the focus of his 2012 show, Vectors, at The Frontiers of Flight Museum in Dallas. 

    Parr’s works portray the functional aesthetics of aircraft design —an elegant balance of strength, weight, and aerodynamic efficiency. His art captures the essence of this balance with artistic abstraction that facilitates appreciation of the underlying uncontrived, pure aesthetics. He focuses on early airplanes with fabric covered wood frames as well as those with all-metal construction with riveted aluminum panels. Parr constantly seeks new methods to celebrate this extraordinary expression of function rarely found in man-made products. 

    The Frontiers of Flight Museum is located on the southeast corner of Dallas Love Field Airport at 6911 Lemmon Avenue (at University). Over 25 aircraft and space vehicles are on display, including the Command Module from the Apollo 7 space mission, a complete Southwest Airlines Boeing 737, and the one-of-a-kind Vought V-173 “Flying Pancake.” Comprehensive and engaging exhibits include thousands of rare aviation artifacts, photographs and memorabilia. Hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Regular admission rates are $8 for adults; $6 for seniors (65+); $5 for children/youth ages 3 through 17; and free for children under age 3. For more information, call (214) 350-1651 or visitwww.flightmuseum.com

    Dallas Artist Featured on HGTV Property Brothers Show

    Artist Steve Lawrences’ Work Featured on Hit T.V. Show                                                 

    Steve Lawrence resident artist at the M Mansions Dallas’ amazing work of art will be featured prominently on the season premier of Property Brothers on HGTV, Wednesday, June 6th at 8pm CST. The art piece is called “the Morgan”Stevea self-taught artist with a classical education, studied art history in Rome as well as photography and gross anatomy in college. Steve naturally gravitated to art production, producing an astonishing amount of work-his color-drenched canvases have come to define his dynamic style. His paintings look like beautiful accidents, belying the labor-intensive nature of his craft.  For Steve, the process is as important as the product and he attends to every detail personally. Before his paintbrush touches the canvas, he applies layer upon layer of plaster for singular textural effects. These ‘color fields’ are favored by both personal and commercial collectors because of their ability to either blend into or command attention in their space.

    Steve’s art has been featured in magazines and newspapers throughout Texas and his upcoming art exhibit opening in Fall 2012 at the M Mansions Dallas will be unrivalled with art aficionados vying for his one of a kind art pieces.

    WAAS Gallery presents Alberto Mena: Dream With Me

    “I think there is a lot that we don’t see. For instance, it is estimated that 23% of the universe is composed of dark matter, and 72% dark energy; something that we can’t even see, and it is all around us. I find that completely fascinating.”—Alberto Mena

    With the cooperation of the B Hollyman Gallery, WAAS Gallery is hosting Alberto Mena’s first exhibition in Dallas.  Dream With Me will be on exhibit from June 28. 2012 to July 26, 2010.  The opening reception will be held June 28th, from 7:00-10:00 p.m. and include a PA by Mena, inspirational music by The Harmonic Alchemy Project, and complimentary bites and libations. 

    Alberto Mena will host a private lecture and Q&A on June 29th, from 11:00-1:00 p.m.

    2722 Logan Street, Dallas, TX 75215

    About Alberto Mena

    Alberto Mena grew up in south Texas and studied art at the University of Texas at Austin. After graduating with a BA in Studio Art, he moved to New York City and became influenced by the many movements of the city. He was ultimately intrigued by the art of photography. He began working as an illustrator for “Business Week Magazine” where he was able to develop his digital illustration skills. He combined his love for photography with these computer skills to create work that is part photograph and part digital drawing.

    Mena makes pictures that meditate on dreams, the possible forms of alternate dimensions, and notions of other realities. He is also inspired by science fiction films of the 1950s. His most recent body of work, While I Sleep is an exercise into seeing something void of color, while challenging the space between reason and reality. He produces large black and white digital photographs that fit somewhere between abstract and supernatural. He applies various digital elements to his process, beginning with stills from 1940s and 50s films; these stills serve both as inspiration and literally as the background for his images. Mena shoots scenes from his television screen, and begins his manipulation; often removing characters and pieces of the scene. He incorporates new objects to the reconstructed image, creating the surreal quality they promise to deliver. By combining familiar sets with the unknown, Mena contemplates the assumptions of our given world.

    Mena received his BA in Studio Art at the University of Texas at Austin. He lives and works in New York City. This is his first solo exhibition in Dallas, Texas.  Collective works can be found at B. Hollyman Gallery.  www.bhollymangallery.com

    WOODTURNING ON DISPLAY IN MEADOWS GALLERY June 15

    The art of woodturning can be traced back to 1300 BC, when the Egyptians developed a process for creating shaped objects from pieces of wood. Denton-based Golden Triangle Woodturners have built upon this ancient tradition and infused the craft with new techniques and ideas.

    The group consists of approximately 70 members who are united by a common interest in wood art and craft, especially as expressed in turned pieces. The exhibition will consist of “natural” turnings that display the beauty of the log as well as highly refined pieces that reveal the inner beauty of the wood. Some pieces are functional while others are highly sculptural.

    Turning and surface enhancement techniques employed by members include mineral inlay, pyrography, thin edge turning, piercing, air brushing, off center turning, metal leaf inlay, and carving, as well as traditional turning. The common thread is that the artist started with a log and used the lathe as a major tool in creating their art.

    Golden Triangle Woodturners is a community of artisans whose purpose is to promote woodturning as an art and craft. Members with all skill levels from beginner to expert are welcome and encouraged to actively participate in club activities, including displaying their pieces.

    Golden Triangle Woodturners contributes to the community through providing hand turned bowls to the Empty Bowls Project, which raises money to feed the hungry, and boxes to the Beads of Courage Program, which helps children and families coping with serious illnesses.

    Turning Logs to Art will be on display from June 15 through August 10, 2012. The opening reception will be Friday, June 15, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. The exhibit is open Tuesday through Sunday from 1:00 to 5:00 pm.  Admission is free.

    Rembrandt etchings open June 9th at the AMA

    Exhibit: Rembrandt: An Evolution of Etchings

    June 9th – August 12th (10am – 5pm)

    The Arlington Museum of Art presents etchings of Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (1606-1669). The exhibition examines the evolution of an etching from copper plates. While Rembrandt is widely known for his paintings, he’s critically acclaimed for his mastery of the art of etching. Rembrandt achieved dramatic detail while incorporating the use of light and dark. Of the three hundred or so known etchings by Rembrandt, the Arlington Museum of Art will show works from the four major themes of his work including self-portraits and portraits, biblical scenes, genre scenes and landscapes. The exhibition showcases some of the most celebrated etchings as well as some of the lesser known and rarely exhibited pieces.
