Mokah Art Gallery presents recent works by Gisela-Heidi Strunck

Mokah Art Gallery presents: Gisela-Heidi Strunck 

September 23 – October 23, 2010

Reception October 9, 6-10pm as part of the 2010 Fall D.E.E. P. ArtWalk

The recent sculptures of Gisela-Heidi Strunck evoke a sense of spiritual passage through merging fully saturated colors and contrasting tactile forms. The structural elements of her work are inspired by architectural and ornamental components observed from her travels to India. Repetition of identical forms and symmetrical configurations connect the work to the many cultures that have influenced her in the past.

Due to brain surgery in 2003, Gisela-Heidi Strunck lost her eyesight as well as sense of smell and taste changing her life and art  substantially. With assistance from her husband, Artist Juergen Strunck, Gisela-Heidi Strunck continues to convey her love of art.

Gisela-Heidi Strunck’s work is on view at the Mokah Art Gallery September 23 through October 23 with a reception on Saturday, October 9th from 6 -10pm. 

Mokah Art Gallery, an extension of Life in Deep Ellum, serves to promote culture and art in Deep Ellum and surrounding communities. At the Cultural Center, Mokah Art Gallery exhibitions feature contemporary art of local artists from the experimental, the emerging, and the established. For further information please contact Courtney Miles at courtneyleemiles@gmail.com.

2010 Distinguished Texas Artist Award: Martin Delabano

Martin Delabano, artist, art teacher and community member, has been selected by the Fort Worth Community Arts Center to receive its 2010 Distinguished Texas Artist award. The Fort Worth Community Arts Center is mounting an exhibition of Mr. Delabano’s work titled An Artful Life. The exhibition will run from September 11 through October 23 at the Center. An artist reception will be held Saturday, September 11, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. in conjunction with the Fort Worth Art Dealers Association’s Fall Gallery Night.

The pieces included in this mixed-media exhibition feature textural assemblages of hundreds of found objects. “Layered, stacked and packed into the frame, life’s discarded minutiae coalesce into a singular narrative. It’s abstract, yet deliberate; full, but not chaotic. The overall effect is one of abundance, of visual wealth,” says art historian Elizabeth Delaney of Delabano’s artwork.

Delabano’s artistic and humanitarian contributions to the community led to his selection for the Distinguished Texas Artist award. In addition to making art, he teaches art classes to middle school students at St. John’s Episcopal School. For 20 years, he has shared his knowledge of and passion for art with scores of St. John’s students, many of whom have graduated to attend Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. Even after graduation, his former students maintain their ties with Mr. D, as he is known around the school, chatting on the alumni Facebook page he moderates and catching up at reunions.

Delabano’s commitment to Carter Blood Care Center has been another constant in his life. Over the years, he has donated more than 21 gallons of blood platelets to Carter. “I have been blessed in this life,” says Delabano, who began donating when two of his friends were affected by cancer, “and I want to do something to give back.”

For Delabano, art serves not only as a means of self-expression, but also as a hook for engaging others; a way for him to give thanks for all he has, and at the same time, joy to others. Says Delabano, “I am an artist – not with the singular vision I had as a young man – but one who is living an artful life; and it’s a rich life, indeed.”

The Fort Worth Community Arts Center is located at 1300 Gendry St. Fort Worth, TX 76107. Hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. http://www.fwcac.com/

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, an educational resource for the community at large and as the facilitator of Edith Baker Art Scholarship and Artist Career Development Fund that 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 non-profit 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 increase public awareness of the role and responsibilities of reputable art dealers and non-profit visual art spaces.

ABOUT THE EDITH BAKER ART SCHOLARSHIP AND ARTIST CAREER DEVELOPMENT FUND

In celebration of its 20th anniversary in 2005, the Dallas Art Dealers Association (DADA) created the Edith Baker Art Scholarship and Artist Career Development Fund honoring the respected owner and director of The Edith Baker Gallery in Dallas. One of DADA’s founding members, Edith owned and directed The Edith Baker Gallery for nearly 30 years before retiring in 2004. The Edith Baker Art Scholarship benefits a student pursuing study of the visual arts through a cash award and career development activities such as a gallery show, a mentorship and an internship. Proceeds from individual donations, annual DADA events and collection jars at each DADA member location support the Edith Baker Art Scholarship, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Visit www.dallasartdealers.org or e-mail info@dallasartdealers.org for more information.

Tim HURSLEY
Architectural Photographer, Little Rock

Most people see most architecture as still images on a page. Thus the photographer’s eye and skill is a major part of architecture in our culture. Timothy Hursley started while a teenager as assistant to the pioneering Balthazar Korab and grew to the top of his profession with commissions like Andy Warhol’s Factory and the new MoMA, Guggenheim Bilbao.

FORUM 2010-2011 PANEL SEASON
The Dallas Architecture Forum’s 2010-2011 Panel Season continues the Forum’s exploration of important issues that impact us, both locally and globally. Subject matter experts will moderate thought-provoking discussions among panelists on the topics listed below.  The Panels occur in an informal environment, allowing audience members to also actively participate.   Plan to join us for these informative and important programs.

Allison V. SMITH
“Seeing Space”
5 October 2010
This Panel will explore thoughts on the “use” of space in composition. What is “open” space”?  “Empty space”? When is a composition “complete”? 
Does this mean “full”? Insights regarding “figure” and “ground” will be shared.

Bang DANG
“Deconstructing the Design Process”
23 November 2010
Designers discuss openly and honestly the origins, complexities 
and contradictions of their own design process. How does one 
begin that initial sketch on a blank sheet of paper? Where does 
that moment of clarity come from? How much is intuition a factor?
How is this process refined and tested?

Katherine SEALE
Affordable Housing and Historic Preservation”
14 December 2010
Affordable Housing and Historic Preservation are natural allies, 
utilizing existing building stock and retaining cultural identity and 
heritage for a number of Americans.  But too often these worthy 
goals do not work in productive harmony.  The panel will consider 
the interests of historic preservation and affordability from an environmental, social, and economic perspective.

Gary CUNNINGHAM, FAIA
“The Design of Sustainability – Science and Sensibility”
8 February 2011
While the practice of sustainability goes way back, it is a current topic 
these days. We will be discussing sustainability in multiple contexts, 
be it the newest technology, lifestyle, or time tested regional design, 
and perhaps, how all of these can flow together to present a new 
aesthetic and approach to the built environment.

Brad GOLDBERG
“The Trinity River Project: An Update”
22 March 2011
This panel will explore, through its participants, the continuing vision 
for the Trinity River - the complexities, realities and commitment to 
recover, through beauty, the source of our city.

Doug NEWBY
“Location, Location, Location”
5 April 2011
The panel will discuss how a site inspires design and how an architect re-imagines that site.

All Panels will be at 6:30 pm, and will be held at the Dallas Center for Architecture, 1909 Woodall Rodgers Freeway, Suite 100, Dallas, TX 75201.
