About P.A.I.N.T.

Professional Artists in North Texas is a group of accomplished and passionately committed artists who make a regular practice of painting

out of doors. Their subjects are primarily landscapes and botanical settings, though they are skilled in still life and figurative works as well.

The group includes oil and acrylic painters, water colorists, and pencilists, all en plein air (the French expression for “in the open air”).

Although the artists reside in communities throughout North Texas, many are represented nationally in shows and galleries and have ties

to universities and professional organizations throughout the country.

Mokah Art Gallery is proud to present “Alight”, an exhibition of paintings by David Anthony Harman.

David Anthony Harman is a native painter of Dallas, Texas. He graduated with a Bachelors degree in Painting from the University of Dallas in May ’10. Unable to abandon the studio life, he immediately moved into the Continental Gin Artist Studios in Deep Ellum, and is devoting a year to painting full time. 

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.

ROAD TRIP: CHARLOTTE SEIFERT opens Saturday, February 12, 2011 with an Artist’s Reception from 6-8:00pm

“Road Trip: New Paintings by CHARLOTTE SEIFERT” opens on Saturday, February 12, 2011 with an Artist’s Reception from 6:00-8:00pm at Norwood Flynn Gallery..  The show continues through Saturday, March 5, 2011.

Norwood Flynn Gallery is pleased to showcase “Road Trip,” new work by Charlotte Seifert. In this vibrant new body of work, Charlotte continues her exploration of painting as a way of remembering.  Invoking landscapes from her early paintings, but in a fresh, more complex way, she continues to draw the viewer into the nature of paint, memory, and experience.  The show continues through March 5, 2011.

All shows are free and open to the public.  The public may call 214-351-3318 or visit for information.

Charlotte Seifert Artist Statement for “Road Trip.”

ROAD TRIP  Over the past year I have taken several road trips to New Mexico and Arizona.  The time spent in the car watching the landscape zoom by, as well as actually being in the landscape inspired me back to my love of land, sky and mountains.  While working on the idea of road trips and fleeting images seen in motion, I realized that life is a big road trip. We are all passing through.  And there are times when we try to stop the car and make our home at a lovely rest stop.  But life has a way of moving, moving, moving on.  

The image of feet appear in several pieces, representing the moving on.  Dogs and birds also show up in the work as part of the imagery of flight and wandering. The brush strokes are often gestural and swirling as the wind.

“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


The Dallas Architecture Forum provides a continuing and challenging public discourse on architecture and urban design in – and for – the Dallas area. The Forum offers presentations of architecture through public lectures by designers, critics, and historians; through topical discussions; and through occasional study tours to buildings and cities locally and throughout the world. The Dallas Architecture Forum serves as an inclusive arena where people interested in and concerned with the built environment, non-professionals and professionals alike, may interact intellectually and socially.

Our membership comes from business, development, public affairs, education, the arts and from the design fields.

This mix of interests and ties is one of the strengths we bring to our involvement with architecture. Support for the Forum’s programs is a grassroots effort, coming from membership subscriptions at all levels and from the generous sponsorship of Forum seasons and events. Visit or call 214-764-2406.

From Blues to Hip Hop at the TVAA Downtown Gallery

The TVAA Downtown Gallery announces the opening of the exhibition From Blues To Hip Hop, curated by Mary Ann Turner, on Tuesday, February 1, 2011. A reception with the Artists will be held on Sunday, February 6 [rescheduled to Feb. 14, 2-4 pm], . The exhibition closes on Monday, February 28, 2011.

From Blues To Hip Hop features the work of John Carpenter, Marvin Crow, Andrea Davis, George Dollins, Spray Gleaves, Jose Angel Hernandez, KeLaine Kvale, Ann McDonald, Junko Otsu, Jan Partin, Paul Pena, Bernard Perroud, Carmen Lax-Ray, Walter Ray, Esther Ritz, and Mary Ann Turner. For centuries every culture has created rhythms, sounds, and lyrics that reflect universal emotions. Artists may not write the songs or the words, but visual artists of every medium can and often do express responses to the music they hear through their art. From Blues to Hip Hop represents these artists’ responses to the music that feeds their creative spirits.

Please join us for the reception on Sunday, February 6 from 2 to 4. The Gallery is easily accessible by DART’s Pearl Street stop, and the reception is free and open to the public.

The Downtown Gallery is located in the Plaza of the Americas, Suite G207, 700 N Pearl Street, Dallas, Texas 75201. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, ten to four in the afternoon. Please visit to learn more about the TVAA Downtown Gallery.
