J.U.L. presents ‘FLOOD OF EMOTION’/Artists Healing JAPAN Fundraiser

Saturday, April 9th at 7pm at

Allied Stone

2405 Crown Road Dallas, TX

For one night only, more than 100 artists, photographers, and sculptors will be donating works that will be for sale and in a silent auction to help raise money for those in need in Japan. There will also be videos, Japanese foods, and live music.

Sendai, with a population of one million, was the closest major city to the epicenter of the Japanese earthquake. Sendai and Dallas have been International Friendship Cities since 1997 and part of the Japan-America Society of Dallas/Fort Worth. Since the alliance was formed, the cities have shared cultures and experiences through exchange programs.

Now — as Japan tries to recover from the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crisis — those on this side of the friendship are VERY concerned for their friends abroad. Dallas, Fort Worth and Southlake are three cities in the area that share sister-city relationships with Japan.

SO!! On APRIL 9TH here in DALLAS, well over 100+ artists, photographers, sculptors, chefs, poets and performers will raise money for Japan and Sendai-OUR SISTER CITY..♥ – the event is called:

-FLOOD OF EMOTION/Artists Healing JAPAN Fundraiser-

It was created just days ago by some artist friends who wanted to do something for our neighbors across the pond.

100% OF THE MONEY will go toward the beneficiaries UNICEF-for medication and aid, to those needing immediate medical help ..BUT we also want to donate to one more HIGH-FOCUS organization ..still TBD (top5 beneficiaries still in research .. posted after friday thou/!!/ )

REGISTER

THIS event will be FREE to attend but any donation amount is appreciated :)

Objects of Desire opening April 8

“Objects of Desire” curated by June Mattingly

place: ilume GALLERIE, 4123 Cedar Springs Road April 7-30 during the Dallas Art Fair

benefitting: AIDS Arms Inc. Dallas // Faces of Life by Jorge Rivas

opening reception: April 8, 6-10pm April 8 -10 // 1pm – 10pm

Albert Scherbarth + Bryan Wetz + Chris Lattanzio + Chris De Dier Danny Kamerath + Etty Horowitz + George Tobolowsky + John Knott Mark Bushey + Michael Wilson + Keith Livingston + Omar Angel Perez Russell Buchanan + Steve Kinder + Stephen Elwood Sybille Bauer/ Luis Meza/Francisco Rizo

A major event is planned for Dallas’ collectors and appreciators of fine custom crafted and designed objects of art for purchase for the home/office ranging from screens, benches, bookcases, chairs and lamps. None of these individualized furniture creations by Texas-based artists and architects have yet been offered to the public.

Sixteen important and recognized artists and architects were invited by June Mattingly and Jeffrey Levine to participate in this original concept for a show. A space with close proximity to the Dallas Art Fair in a first floor, newly redefined restaurant/residential area was taken into consideration, making the new on-the- scene ilume GALLERIE the ideal choice to hold this art-filled show.

Functional, memorable, classic furniture dates as far back as a regal Renaissance throne, a Louis XIV baroque chair, to the omnipresent Marcel Breuer “Barcelona” to the over-copied Eames chairs/ottomans. The Postmodern period of the late 70s blurred boundaries between craft and art and set the stage for acceptance of furniture by artists as art, by artists such as Scott Burton and Isamu Noguchi. In the swing into the 21st century, look for notable furniture by Frank Gehry stamped with the KnollStudio logo and by Ron Arad in the Vitra miniatures chair collection, historical icons for contemporary design.

Who is to say one of the one-of-a-kind treasures in “Objects of Desire” won’t produce a not-to-be- forgotten, up-to-the-minute artistic addition to one’s coveted surroundings?

Sponsors: ilume GALLERIE + Jeffrey Levine publisher of moderndallas.net + Dish + Fin + Red Mango + Manik and Natly Tequilas + Scott+Cooner

DeAnna Cochran, Josef Jasso, Kat, Kiki Curry, Freeman, Ric Leichliter, Ronald Radwanski, Jorge Rivas, Joshua K. Stuart , J Taylor

About the High School

Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts was created to provide a program of excellence in the arts which meets the needs of the students and the community. It is the school of choice for students with special talents and the desire and commitment to develop their potential. Intensive training in the performing or visual arts allows students to explore the demands of an artistic career. A rigorous academic program offers all courses required for the state’s three graduation plans including a host of honors courses and Advanced Placement courses. Students are selected through audition, interview, portfolio or other demonstration of artistic aptitude, and the student population reflects the ethnic enrollment of the district at large. On the average, 150 graduating seniors boast $1.5 – $3.5 million dollars in college scholarships in both arts and academic majors.

The Visual Arts Cluster, led by Dolores Cuello Tompkins, provides an intense education in the studio arts: drawing, design, painting, printmaking, painting, sculpture, ceramics, photography and jewelry. Special Advanced Placement art courses enhance the curriculum and prepare students for professional schools and future career options.
