The Art Kids At Brookhaven Are Gearing Up For Their Biggest Sale Of The Year!

 

And when I say “kids,” I mean students aged 17 to 75!  Something fabulous is going on at Brookhaven College! The energy is palpable; the music is blasting in the sculpture courtyard, while sparks fly from metal, pottery wheels whirl in clay, waxes are finely carved and cast in jewelry, blocks are inked in printmaking, photographers are in the dark room, and students stand for hours before their easels, absorbed with color, light and shadow in drawing and painting. And Now Their Creations Are Available For Sale!                 

The Art Club of Brookhaven College presents a student art sale and fund-raiser December 1, 9am-7pm and December 2, 9am-6pm                  
New This Year– “Meet The Artist” Reception December 1, 6pm-7pm   – Jazz, sweet treats and a chance to mingle and chat with Brookhaven student artists represented in the sale and shop, shop, shop!                        

Our event is held on campus, INSIDE “S” Building (Student Services Building) Featuring; handmade jewelry, ceramics, sculpture, printmaking, photography, painting. How shoppers can pay; cash or check. Free admission including the reception, plenty of free parking

 

Why You (and everybody else) Must Shop Our Show;
This ISN’T the typical week-end craft sale/carnival being held by every church and elementary school this time of year.   “We ain’t stringin’ beads”– as one longtime metalsmith student told me. This is a sale of work by budding artists passionate about their work, developing their own voice, and experienced artists who have taken classes for years striving to refine their work. This is an excellent opportunity for the public to buy exceptional and unusual handmade fine craft and fine art at VERY reasonable prices.                     

Who The Fund-raiser Benefits;                   
Brookhaven’s Art Club. 20% of sales goes to scholarships and to bring talented artists to campus for workshops. So Don’t Be Tardy For The Party (hey! It’s still a good song!)  The tables will be piled high with treasure. Have an Individualist on your gift list? Love to wear or decorate your nest with unique, beautiful or funky finds?   I’ll be there with you, lining up, waiting for the doors to open!

Art + Object opening this Sat. 6-8pm at Marty Walker Gallery

Art + Object
A SMALL SCULPTURE INVITATIONAL  
NOVEMBER 20 – DECEMBER 23, 2010
Opening: Saturday, November 20, 6-8 pm

Sterling Allen Frances Bagley Richie Budd Thomas Feulmer Nathan Green Elliot Johnson M Margaret Meehan Pard Morrison Rod Northcutt Tom Orr Allison Schulnik Jay Shinn Wayne White Megan Whitmarsh Billy Zinser  

Marty Walker Gallery presents “Small Works: Art + Object” -a small sculpture invitational  featuring strange and fantastic small art objects from a selection of 16 stellar artists. This assembly of sculpture debunks the trend that “bigger is better,” and by working within a small format, these artists have created a mess of random creatures and fascinating objects that demonstrate the power of big ideas imagined in scaled-down and accessible forms.

P.A.I.N.T. at the Ft. Worth Botanical Gardens Restaurant

Perhaps you’ve seen them around town or in the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens or in the tour of the Hidden Gardens – oil and acrylic painters, water colorists, and pencilists, all en plein air (that’s a French expression for “in the open air”). These artists may have been from P.A.I.N.T. (Professional Artists in North Texas), a group of 15 artists who make a weekly practice of painting out of doors.

Earlier this year P.A.I.N.T. organized as a formal group to display and market their work after many years of painting together. Although the artists are all from the North Texas, many are represented nationally in shows and galleries. Their subjects are primarily landscapes and botanical subjects, and the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens is a favorite venue; yet these artists are accomplished in still life and figurative works, as well. The members of P.A.I.N.T. are: Ann Hardy, Arlene Butterworth Taylor, Beverly Richmond, Bonnie Dunn, Cecilia Robertson, Cheri Irwin, Claudia Davis, Frances White, Irma Ward, Jan Bateman, Paula Robinson, Shirley Kinworthy, Tendaris Walling, Tom E. Kellie, and Tosca Engisch.

P.A.I.N.T. will exhibit from November 16, 2010 through January 15, 2011. See a sampling of their talent while enjoying a delicious meal in the ambience of The Gardens Restaurant. For more about the group, contact Irma at irma700@tx.rr.com.

Frisco Arts presents ‘Texas Goes to France’ by Moya & Richardson

The Frisco Association for the Arts present the touring exhibition ‘Texas Goes to France’ with works by Diana Moya and D.K. Richardson. 

A delegation of Texas artists led by Moya traveled to Europe this summer to exhibit their artwork, representing the USA in two of the most beautiful international exhibitions dedicated to the art of pastel. D.K. Richardson stated, ”Words don’t quite convey the awe of seeing your paintings hanging among the works of other master pastelists from Europe, invited by the oldest Pastel Society in the world.” 

Paris, Texas? or Paris, France? In an interesting note, both artists start by interpreting the similarities of what they know versus an icon in this exciting venture, as they document their travels through paintings, photographs, and videos. 

Visit with Diana and D.K. for demos, free to the public November 27 and December 18 from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm and let their artwork transport you to beautiful places. Both artists will offer holiday rebates on portrait commissions and fine painting classes for children and adults. 

“Art is to be lived and shared. Every art piece you bring home needs to have a meaning to become part of an everlasting investment that will remain in your family for generations,” said Diana Moya. “I’m very happy to share our experiences with Frisco, a great city for the Arts.”

The exhibit will be available for viewing at the new Frisco Discovery Center Art Gallery from November 18 to December 30, 2010. After Frisco, the exhibit goes to the Dallas Downtown Gallery in April and to the Arlington Museum of Art in May 2011. The Frisco Discovery Center, located at 8004 N. Tollway, Frisco, TX 75034, gives the public an opportunity to meet the local artists and purchase their art. For more information visit www.dianamoya.com or email info@dianamoya.com.

Mark Crow & Marisa Williamson open Nov. 20 at the Arthello Beck gallery

Arthello Beck Gallery opens new works by Mark Crow and introducing Marisa Williamson, multi-disciplinary artist.

Arlington artist Mark Crow is essentially self-taught but one would never guess it from the technical skill and personal aesthetic exhibited in his paintings. His latest body of work, “The Onion Principle” delves into two of his passions, observing architectonic elements in the environment and their relationship to natural lifeforms and the human figure. His richly textured paintings pull the viewer into their layered surfaces, keeping one engaged with both admiring the painterly quality of them along marveling at the complex visual conversation rendered. Mark’s palette is relatively limited however the subtleties he manages to invoke by pixelating his imagery makes it seem much more varied. Free admission.

“Broadcast”, new multi-media works by Marisa Williamson

With her first one-woman show“Broadcast” at the Arthello Beck Gallery, Philadelphia native Marisa Williamson blends all of her artistic concerns. Marisa’s discourse on the influence of media on societal norms finds expression in video, works on paper and sculpture, of which all three media she uses effortlessly. Her “boxes” are three dimensional narratives that explore her favorite topic: television’s hold on the American psyche. She continues this conversation in her works on paper and tops the entire dialogue off with a video. We are excited to present Marisa Williamson in her first one-woman show and look forward to seeing more of her work in the future.

Mark Crow & Marisa Williamson openings: Saturday, Nov. 20, 2010 at 5 pm. Shows close January 1, 2011.

Cool stuff that went down

Tasty Greenville

We’ve been asked to be a part of a lot of festivals lately, and we LOVE the Greenville area. Rain attacked all day, but there was still a lot of cool that went down at the Taste of Greenville. 

 

See pics and read by David and Nicole Rodriguez here.

 

Clear the Air for one night

Our team-ups with local organization Hip Hops Helps Heal have always been incredible. H4 throws shows where local hip hoppers gather to perform to benefit charities (like the American Lung Association). We blow it out with the live art and spoken word. 

 

Here’s a gaggle of pics from the wild night

 

This is TRUE

The new jazz? A show that asked 20 poets to work with 20 artists they never met to create collaborative pieces for a gallery and live spoken word & art experience. What a rush. This is True was one of the coolest artlovemagic experiences ever. 

 

See pics and read the story here. 

 

ArtLoveMagic honored at city hall

Recently, the Mayor and City Council asked artlovemagic and the Deep Ellum Foundation to come in and speak about the success of our kid’s workshop programs. The whole thing was pretty much a mind blowing experience and something we’re very thankful for.

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 and Stanley Marcus, of Neiman-Marcus. The Cedars also boasted Dallas’ first old city park (now 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.
