The Greater Denton Arts Council presents Ekphrasis: A Collaboration Among the Arts, October 11-13, 2012

What:  “Ekphrasis: A Collaboration Among the Arts” 2012 Inaugural Symposium

Where:  Center for the Visual Arts, 400 E. Hickory St., Denton, TX 76201

When: October 11-13, 2012

Details:  A symposium designed to discover and explore the artistic impact when intertwining the disciplines of visual art, dance, music, and the written word.

EXPLORE COLLABORATIVE POSSIBILITIES IN THE ARTS

The Greater Denton Arts Council presents Ekphrasis: A Collaboration Among the Arts.

This inaugural symposium has a special focus on collaborative possibilities in the arts. It is designed to discover and explore the artistic impact when intertwining the disciplines of visual art, dance, music, and the written word. It is aimed at those with an interest in and vision of the significant relevance that artistic collaborations and interdisciplinary approaches can have throughout the community. The symposium will be held October 11 – 13, 2012 at the Center for Visual Arts.

Ekphrasis (from the Greek) is generally considered to be an experience in which one medium of art attempts to relate to another medium by defining and describing its essence and form. Through this process the artworks, in combination, take on even greater relevance. Almost any artistic media may be the subject for this type of expressive collaboration.

Thursday, October 11th, evening is free and open to the public. Festivities will include a reception and book signing for Passion, Art, Community: Denton, Texas, in Word and Image, a reading by 2010 Texas Poet Laureate karla k. morton, and a chance to discuss artwork with the artists.

Friday, October 12th, will feature several informative speakers, including:

  • Pat Porter, former CEO North Texas Business for Culture and the Arts – Arts Advocacy/Cultural Tourism
  • Michelle Kraft, Ph.D. – Art and Communities/Arts Education: Interdisciplinary Connections – The Role of Narrative in Community-Based Education
  • Martha Peters, Public Art Director, Arts Council of Fort Worth and Tarrant County – Public Art/Public Policy
  • Donna Howell-Sickels, Cowgirl Artist – Arts and Heritage
  • Craig Schaefer, Associate Executive Director, Membership, Marketing, and Development, National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame – Arts and Heritage
  • Honor Moorman – Education/Interdisciplinary Connections

The Friday evening session will begin at 7:00 p.m. at the Center for Visual Arts. It promises to be exciting, with readings from eight Texas Poets Laureate, including Jim Hoggard, Jan Seale, Cleatus Rattan, Larry Thomas, Alan Birkelbach, Paul Ruffin, Dave Parsons, and karla k. morton.

The symposium will conclude on Saturday morning, October 13th. It will begin at 9:00 a.m. with a Potpourri of Arts, a reading by karla k. morton, and a performance by Carol Lynn Mizell ofMake It Red and a work commissioned specifically for the event that features music and dance.

Cost:
Thursday:   free and open to the public
Friday:        $50 for a full day (workshops and evening event)
                   $25 student rate (workshops and evening event)

VISIONS OF DENTON FROM DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES


What:
      Denton Through Two Lenses: Walter Eagleton and Tom Judd

Where:   Gough Gallery, Center for the Visual Arts, 400 E. Hickory St., Denton, TX 76201

When:     August 26 – October 28, 2012

Details:     Featuring photographs by Walter Eagleton and Tom Judd

                  Tuesday – Sunday from 1:00 – 5:00 pm.  Free and open to the public.

The Greater Denton Arts Council presents Denton Through Two Lenses: Walter Eagleton and Tom Judd. The exhibition features photographs of Denton, Texas and the surrounding area. Both photographers bring their unique perspective to every image.

Walter Eagleton’s artistic career began as a studio photographer.  Walter holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, as well as a Master of Music degree from the University of North Texas.

Walter is an active member of Professional Photographers of America (PPA), Texas Professional Photographers Association (currently serving as President), Fort Worth PPA, and Dallas PPA.  Walter’s work has been featured in several PPA national conventions, from Las Vegas to Chicago to New Orleans, and in January 2010, Walter was awarded the Bronze Photographer of the Year medal at the National convention in Nashville.

Thomas Judd has been making photographs for almost 40 years. What began as a hobby in the late 1960’s eventually turned into a career.

Growing up in rural upstate New York, Tom learned to develop film and make black and white prints in a home darkroom. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Professional Photography from Southern Illinois University in 1980 and has made a career as a working photographer ever since. He is experienced in most areas of commercial, product, and portrait photography. Tom has always kept a place in his life for making photographs that are purely for artistic pursuits. His fine art photographs are widely exhibited, have won numerous awards, and are held in private collections throughout the United States.

The two photographers are also represented in Passion, Art, Community: Denton, Texas, in Word and Image, an exhibition showing concurrently in the Meadows Gallery.

The opening reception on August 30, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. will also include a book signing by karla k. morton, Walter Eagleton, Tom Judd, and the other artists featured in Passion, Art, Community: Denton, Texas, in Word and Image. Books will be available for purchase at the reception. Passion, Art, Community: Denton, Texas, in Word and Image is a project of the City of Denton Public Art Committee.

The Center for the Visual Arts is located at 400 E. Hickory Street, Denton, Texas, 76201. Additional information can be found at http://www.dentonarts.com/ .

AF Panel Discussion about Issues Raised by Impact of Museum Tower on the Nasher Sept. 8 at DMA

Dallas Architecture Forum to Present a Panel Discussion about Issues Raised by Impact of Museum Tower on the Nasher Sculpture Center and Surrounding Area Called Aesthetics and The City

September 8, 2012 at Dallas Museum of Art 

Dallas Architecture Forum, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing challenging and on-going public discourse about architecture, design and the urban environment, will present a moderated panel discussion on Aesthetics and The City on Saturday, September 8 at 2:30 p.m. at the Dallas Museum of Art, 1717 N. Harwood St. Krys BOYD, Host of KERA’s “Think,” will serve as Moderator. Admission is free and no reservations are necessary. There will be open seating on a space-available basis for this Panel. For more information on the Dallas Architecture Forum, visit www.dallasarchitectureforum.org or call 214-764-2406.

The difficult issues raised by the construction of Museum Tower and its real effect on Dallas Arts District neighbor Nasher Sculpture Center open many questions as to legal development rights of a property owner in Texas and larger civic and even cultural responsibility. At what point should the built environment be held to a higher standard? Should the City itself be the arbiter of such criteria and if so, by what mechanism? Is an Arts District, or any other site of cultural import, a sensitive context requiring special legal protections or tools such as an Environmental

Impact Statement? What are the limits of a ‘pro-development’ mindset? Panelists including Veletta Lill, Executive Director of the Dallas Arts District, and architect Vel Hawes will join moderator Krys Boyd in discussing these very important issues. 

About the Dallas Architecture Forum

The Dallas Architecture Forum is a not-for-profit civic organization that brings leading architectural thought leaders from around the world to speak in Dallas and also fosters important local dialogue about the major issues impacting our urban environment. The Forum was founded in 1996 by some of Dallas’ leading architects, business, cultural and civic leaders, and it continues to benefit from active support and guidance from these citizens. The Forum fulfills its mission of providing a continuing and challenging public discourse on architecture and urban design in – and for – the Dallas area. The Dallas Architecture Forum’s members include architects, design professionals, students and educators, and a broad range of civic-minded individuals and companies intent to improve the urban environment in North Texas. The Forum has been recognized nationally with an AIA Collaboration Achievement Award for its strategic partnerships with other organizations focused on architecture, urban planning and the arts. For more information on the Forum, visit www.DallasArchitectureForum.org

Among the over 130 speakers who have addressed the Forum’s Lecture Series are Shigeru Ban, Brad Cloepfil, Diller + Scofidio, Peter Eisenman, Michael Graves, Daniel Libeskind, Thomas Phifer, Rafael Vinoly, Juhani Pallasmaa, AIA Gold Medal Winner Peter Bohlin, and regional architects David Lake and Ted Flato. Pritzker Prize winners speaking to the Forum have been Kazuyo Sejima, Rafael Moneo, Thom Mayne, Rem Koolhaas and Norman Foster (the latter two in collaboration with the ATT Performing Arts Center). Other speakers for the Forum have been leading designers Calvin Tsao, Andrée Putman, and Karim Rashid; landscape architect Michael Van Valkenburgh; and National Trust President Emeritus Richard Moe. Important critics, authors and patrons who have spoken to the Forum include Emily Pulitzer, Terence Riley, Pulitzer Prize winners Robert Campbell and Blair Kamin, Aaron Betsky, and the late David Dillon.

The Forum organizes and presents an annual series of Panels—local, informal, open, and offered free of charge as a public service to the community—led by a moderator who brings a subject of local importance along with comments by participating panelists. Moderators and Panelists have also come from both other Texas cities as well as from national institutions that were connected with particular Panel subjects. Panels offer attendees the opportunity to participate in creating discourse. Important topics addressed in Panels in recent years include: “Thoughts on the Dallas Comprehensive Plan”; “The Kimbell Expansion: A Discussion”; “Filling Out the Dallas Arts District”; and “Re-envisioning the Trinity”. 

For more information on the Dallas Architecture Forum, visit www.dallasarchitectureforum.org. For questions about the Forum, call 214-764-2406.

The Patricia Arnold and Friends Exhibit is on display in the main gallery of Jaycee Park Center for the Arts in Irving from July 29 – August 23. Reception is Sunday, August 12 from 2-4 pm. Directions.

Pat, as she prefers to be called, started her art career in 2000 after retiring from nursing. She has exhibited in a number of venues including galleries in California and Frisco, Texas. Her art is, as she puts it, pretty eclectic, “I end up drawing and painting things that give me joy, no so much a permanent style but what I believe will communicate and give joy and humor.” She is also so pleased to share the Gallery with her good friends and artists Susan Murray, D’Anna Robinson, Bill Dollaway and Stephen Hackley. “My hope is that our art will make you happy and enjoy our art in the future.” Visit her website at parnold.artspan.com
