THE CATHOLIC FOUNDATION UNVEILS WINNING ARTIST, DEDICATES GIFT OF HUGE PUBLIC ART AT CULMINATION OF 5TH ANNUAL CATHOLIC FOUNDATION PLAZA ARTIST COMPETITION

DALLAS – The Catholic Foundation has announced J. Lynn Kelly as the winner of the 5th Annual Catholic Foundation Plaza Artists Competition. His work, “Downtown Playground” was unveiled during a public dedication ceremony in the Dallas Arts District.

The winning art will be displayed on a 28’ by 9’8” wall for approximately one year at The Catholic Foundation Plaza, which is free and open to the public and located on the grounds of the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe in the Dallas Arts District. “Downtown Playground” offers Kelly’s artistic vision of the Dallas Arts District. His intent was to directly involve the viewer in the District’s many art exhibition and performance venues. He arranged the venues in his work to artfully divide the space of the picture plane, which invites the public “to dance their eyes around all of the attractions.”

Kelly, the grand prize winner, received a $2,500 stipend, in addition to having his artwork displayed in the Dallas Arts District for one year. Two honorable mentions, Laura Moore with “Peaceful, Calm” and Susan Barnett with “The Plaza” received $250 each

“These places [depicted in the winning artwork] represent a freedom of spirit that we must constantly nourish, making time to relax our pace so that our spirits might join with the artist’s visions and have space to unfold and enlarge,” said J. Lynn Kelly. “Without this we risk becoming isolated and small in a world that can seem so large and uncaring. The people of the Cathedral reach out every day to show others that they do care about one another. What better place than this to display public art which reminds us of the undiminished persistence of the caring spirit, and I hope my art can in some way contribute to that.” 

Earlier this year, The Catholic Foundation invited professional artists living in the North Texas area to submit proposal designs for consideration. A panel of highly respected members of the local arts community then chose the winning piece.

This year’s Selection Committee included one representative from The Catholic Foundation; Cindy M. Gummer, owner of The Enchanted Galleries; Katherine Wagner, CEO of the Business Council for the Arts; Patricia B. Meadows, Art Connections; David C. Hickman, sculptor; Pamela Nelson, Dallas artist; Gary Skotnicki of Architexas, the architectural firm and designer of the Plaza; and David Zvanut, the 2009 competition winner.

“The Dallas Art District is an interactive and inspirational gem in the heart of our city, and Lynn’s artwork captures the vibrant atmosphere our community is fortunate to have,” said Edwin M. Schaffler, President and CEO of The Catholic Foundation. “Each year, we are honored to showcase a talented local artist through this competition, and we know the public will enjoy Lynn’s winning artwork during their visits to the Dallas Arts District as much as we will.” 

Former winners include Marty Ray’s “Celebrate Life, Celebrate Art” in 2006, Ann Cushing Gantz’s “Trumpeting Angels” in 2007, Pamela Nelson’s “Magic Carpet” in 2008, and David Zvanut’s “Music on Parade” in 2009. The competition will be open to artists in summer 2011, and artists are invited to visit www.catholicfoundation.com to learn about participating in future competitions.

The Catholic Foundation Plaza, dedicated in October 2006, was a gift from The Catholic Foundation to the Dallas community to commemorate the Foundation’s 50th anniversary. In addition to the art wall, the 3,900-square-foot public space is an oasis for Dallas citizens and visitors to enjoy.

Chartered in 1955 by a group of dedicated Catholic laymen, The Catholic Foundation is a donor-focused community foundation that guides benefactors in compassionate charitable giving endeavors, utilizing extensive expertise to carry out the various philanthropic goals of its donors. The Foundation’s planned giving programs connects donors directly with organizations they wish to support within the Diocese of Dallas and elsewhere, whether that is a home parish, Catholic school or a community-based charity. Thanks to the generosity of donors both past and present, The Foundation has provided approximately $24 million to local organizations through hundreds of grants over the past 54 years, and donor-advised funds maintained at the Foundation have accounted for even more grants amounting to millions of dollars.

As a geologist and a clay artist, Steve Hilton has developed an appreciation for the anomalies in the many forms of life, clay, rock, and soil covering the Earth’s landscape.

Carlos Baz was born in Mexico City and did studies of photography in New York City. Baz’s photography is very spontaneous, and in many cases he tries to capture the dark side of the human life. The photographing of people who have been brutalized by life isn’t easy; it’s emotionally tough. Carlos Baz tries to use his talent to highlight the human beauty in different forms. He loves to combine the natural with the modern. Baz’s photography reflects the beauty of our streets, our parks, our buildings, and our cities. What the common person cannot see with their eyes they will see with Carlos Baz’s photos.

November 5, 2010

November 5 – 29, 2010

Connection is defined as the state of having something in common. The commonality in the artwork of Susie Harrison and Pam Stern is an emphasis on the figure, particularly the female figure, and their connection to the natural world. Harrison captures this in intense, fantastical drawings; Stern creates sculptural ceramics which are slip-painted with female faces, entwined with foliage and scenes from her magic-filled childhood.

TAC Featured Artist: Jessica Ray: A Retrospective

 

Through December 18, 2010

 

Through December 18, 2010

Award-winning artist and poet Jessica Ray is known for her striking paintings, sculpture, and poetry. Intricately designed and detailed, her mixed media paintings and sculptures capture expressions that touch the human heart.

Mother and child, celestial/astronomical renderings, and nature are among the subjects this native Texan has chosen to interpret since beginning her professional career in art. Ray believes that her work is a way for people to better understand how we are connected to one another. “If my work can make people think about our relationships to each other and the world around us, then maybe we will feel compelled to protect and cherish them.”- Jessica Ray

The Gallery at Clifton Capital Building: Perspectives & Perceptions

 

Through November 19, 2010

 

5201 Camp Bowie

 

9 – 5PM

Through November 19, 2010

The Fort Worth Community Arts Center has a new satellite gallery, in partnership with Clifton Capital Partners, Inc. Located at 5201 Camp Bowie, The Gallery at Clifton Capital Building will be open Monday – Friday during regular business hours.

Nancy Lamb paints people un-posed and off-guard. In trying to catch the true spirit of the moment, Lamb introduces a penetrating quality that is created by slipping behind the social façade to uncover the mask society demands. Nancy Lamb tries to capture a still-life of the psychology of this suspended expression and combine it with textures, fabric, and designs that go along with the visual rhetoric.

Daniel Blagg doesn’t travel far to find material. “Many of my subjects are within a few blocks of my studio,” says the artist, whose warehouse workspace is in an industrial district in Fort Worth, TX. “I am drawn to neglected areas that are in a state of limbo. For me, they have an element of something that’s very ordinary, very American.” The Texas native uses techniques of photorealism to depict symbols of urban blight: abandoned buildings, derelict gas stations, and empty streets. Blagg tries to elevate the mundane. The imagery that Blagg uses is so familiar that one cannot help but be drawn in by these everyday scenes. (Kidder Smith Gallery)

500X OPENING Nov. 6 – Nate Glaspie and Tiffany Wolf

500X Gallery

500 Expositon Ave.

Dallas, Texas 75226

214.828.1111 | 500x.org

HOURS: Saturday & Sunday Noon-5pm, and Weekdays by appointment

Nate Glaspie

Constructed from found materials, Nate Glaspie’s visual art initially seem industrially made. This is contributed through the process of relying on the identity of the found materials he chooses. An Apple keyboard box becomes a painting, periodicals from the 70′s become sketchbooks for a continuation of ideas and other materials from stray origins become anew through an artist’s sensitive eye.

 

 

Tiffany Lynn Wolf

My thoughts around femininity, insecurity, and home drive my work. I use the process of making as a mechanism for coping with the actual reality versus the preconceived ideal – having the control over an evolving process of making and destroying of objects and idea and developing a relationship of sentimentality and rejection.  I am interested in place… in my place… in my impact on my place…

Silenced Suffering: The Comfort Women Project

During the Second World War (1932-1945), hundreds of thousands of Korean women became “comfort women,” which is a euphemism for women forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese Imperial Army.These women were conscripted into many Asian countries from Korea and imprisoned at the military comfort stations. Since Japan’s defeat in 1945, many of them committed suicide or remained in foreign countries instead of returning to Korea, as they were ashamed and attempting to hide from their past. Since Japan’s defeat, the comfort women have struggled through the physical and emotional consequences of their enslavement for more than sixty years. To date, only two hundred women have testified about their ordeals out of the estimated two hundred thousand women whose lives were impacted by this experience. They overcame the difficulties of publicly speaking out in hope that their testimony would help prevent history from repeating itself.

Approximately two hundred thousand women were involved in sexual slavery in four hundred comfort stations during this war. In this project, I metaphorically portray the number of the comfort women and their testimonies in order to explore their tragic historical memories.

Collaborators since 1998, Krista Connerly and Thomas Feulmer look back at three of their action-based works that involve ideas like intimacy, distribution and audience.

 

 

UPSTAIRS PROJECT ROOM

The show is a celebration of sparkle, sugar, and mischievous delight.  Delicious temptations which stimulate the senses and tempt the mores. This effort is an extension of an ongoing dialogue between the artists.
