Sacred: New Works By Justin Clumpner – Reception June 16 at Kettle Art

Justin_Clumpner_Sacred

Kettle Art Presents: “Sacred: New Works By Justin Clumpner” 

Opening Reception: Friday, June 16, 5-8pm

Kettle Art proudly presents “Sacred: New Works By Justin Clumpner” featuring current illustrations and paintings by the artist, as well as an exclusive, immersive installation, in the artist’s first solo exhibition at the gallery.

Clumpner’s work continues to explore the implications of America as a “Christian nation.” Working primarily in paint and collage, he depicts symbolic narratives built around portraiture. Using newspaper and advertisements as source material, Clumpner looks to our contemporary existence to find the maddening, the ironic, and the absurd. He uses this imagery to create secular icons of morality inspired by the stained glass windows and illuminated manuscripts that were ever-present in his upbringing. Using these same symbolic elements mixed with contemporary imagery, he creates something both new and familiar.

As Clumpner explains:

We have declared ourselves a Christian nation, but problematically the generosity, sacrifice, and love of our Christian saints do not align with the needs of contemporary America. We will need new saints. Saints of greed and division. Saints that tear apart man and nature, looking for every lucrative resource, and then building walls to protect that wealth. With that in mind, I have created this monument.

“Retail Space – What Works in Dallas”
13 June 2017
Tuesday, 6:30 pm, Informal reception at 6:15 pm
NOTE VENUE LOCATION:
One Arts Plaza Conference Center
Ground Level, One Arts Plaza Building, 1722 Routh Street | Dallas, TX 75201
(at intersection of Flora and Routh Streets)
Free Parking Available in One Arts Surface Parking Lot located behind (to the east of) One Arts Plaza Building
 
The birthplace of Neiman Marcus and home to NorthPark, Dallas is a city whose identity has been built on the art of retail excellence. From fine dining to world-class luxury shopping that bridges art and fashion, Dallas has, in many ways set the highest standard for retail across the nation. In recent years, however, there has been a noticeable shift towards themed, gimmicky trends, in both shopping and dining.
 
Fighting to break free of a cycle of trends, consumers are now searching for undeniable authenticity and lasting culture. Shaking off buzzwords, they instead want immersive, visceral experiences. This Panel will explore the future of the retail landscape, and how innovative design can shape memorable environments and genuine experiences.

untitled_princezaar

Prince Zaar chose not to stay in the Royalty lineup in Camaroon, but to continue his work in sacred geometry and criminal justice in the US.  He uses ink to execute large scrolls he refers to as trianglerism which are intense, beautiful, and psychedelic.

Rich Cali works with ink on vintage paper recording images from his soul and subconscience with direct subjects transformed to read as elegant autobiographic imagery.

Dan Phillips works with gouache on paper which express his talent as a furniture maker. Simplistic graceful femininity subjects float on his paper.

Anthony Dominguez worked on the streets of NY with dark fabrics and simple uncommon materials such as white-out.  He worked on pieces he could roll and transport for a mobile work space.  His work is allegories from his thoughts about the timeless and repeated state of man and the world.

Robert Ryan is a tattoo artist from New Jersey who when not tattooing is working to maintain clarity and an enlightened state of the mind with his teacher in India.  His work in ink describes this journey.

All five artists are working or have worked within what we would call “the HINTERLAND” – an area lying beyond what is visible or known.

MFA Exhibitions open June 3 at CentralTrak: Jessie Bowers and Chun Yi (Ronald) Wu

Centraltrak2016logo

CentralTrak hosts reception for two final MFA exhibitions

This Saturday, June 3rd from 8-10pm

Please join us at CentralTrak this Saturday, June 3rd from 8-10pm for a reception celebrating Jessie Bowers and Chun Yi (Ronald) Wu, two recent MFA graduates.

Jessie Bowers: Dis-Location

Dis-Location is a meta-gallery created by the artist by intertwining two unique gallery spaces into one show. A virtual gallery was digitally fabricated for the viewer to experience the show in their mind, while the physical gallery space was incorporated as a way to experience the other part in person.

 

Chun Yi (Ronald) Wu: Zodiac of Virtual and Real

This show features 12 Zodiac constellation Pepakura sculptures and wall reliefs representing each sign of the Zodiac.

“Multi-Family Housing in Dallas” 
The Dallas Architecture Forum, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing public education about architecture, design and the urban environment, will continue its 2016-2017 Panel Discussion Series on June 6, 2017 with “Multi-Family Housing in Dallas” moderated by Paris Rutherford, Principal of Catalyst Urban Development.

The venue for the Panel Series for this season is the Dallas Black Dance Theater building directly behind One Arts Plaza.

“With the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex experiencing such dramatic population growth in the past two decades, there is an increased demand for multi-family housing.  Just what should it look like to satisfy the demands of today’s market?  Where should it be located, and what will the future hold for multi-family projects if the demand changes? “The Dallas Architecture Forum is pleased to present this next panel in its 2016-17 series of thought-provoking Panel Discussions on topics impacting the citizens of Dallas both locally and globally,” stated Forum Executive Director Nate Eudaly. “Moderator Paris Rutherford will be joined by subject matter experts to discuss this timely topic and how it will shape future growth decisions for Dallas.

Dallas-Fort Worth and North Texas have a current population of roughly 7.1 million people, more than double in the number of residents over the last twenty years. We are experiencing a population surge among the highest in the United States. Forbes quotes DFW as building 10% of the apartments nationwide, and it seems that the demand for multi-family housing in the region is almost insatiable. This also represents a shift in the type of housing that the Metroplex has historically demanded, moving from suburban single-family residences to condensed and stacked urban living.
 
What exactly precipitated this shift, and what does the future hold for these building types? Will suburban centers in North Texas, which have tended to hold out on such projects, be forced to begin to build multi-family style buildings due to overwhelming demand? And what happens to these buildings in the future when demand is not as high, or if the population migrates? We will discuss these questions as well as other important considerations of the multi-family housing boom during this Panel.

Fine European Art Auction Exceeds 1.3 Million at Heritage Auctions

Heritageeuropeanauction

May 24 sale sees Henrietta Rae’s Psyche surpass $300,000

DALLAS (May 26, 2017) – Regarded by many as the most significant and ambitious work of the Victorian artist’s career, Henrietta Rae’s Psyche before the throne of Venus sold for $324,500, the second-highest price ever for the artist at auction, to lead Heritage Auction’s $1.3+ million Fine European Art auction.

Psyche features a total of 14 full-length figures, and is a testament to Rae’s celebrity as the finest woman painter of the female nude in pre-modern Britain. The work subsequently was owned by “celebrity collectors” William Randolph Hearst and Amon G. Carter.

“There is no doubt that Henrietta Rae set out to create a major artistic statement when she painted Psyche before the throne of Venus,” notes Dr. Marianne Berardi, Senior European Painting Expert at Heritage. “This mythological composition not only took her over two years to complete, but required that she build a new painting studio in order to accommodate its ambitious dimensions. It’s wonderful that Rae, who had to contend with so much chauvinism in the male-dominated art world of her time, chose to paint this myth that was populated entirely by women.”

French artists filled out the remaining top spots in the auction, with French Post-Impressionist Henri Baptiste Lebasque’s Sur les bords de la Marne, 1901 large tour de force selling for $125,000 and Fauvist Maurice de Vlaminck’s Rue de village, circa 1920-22 and Ferme gaveling for $65,625 and $57,500, respectively.

French academic painter Guillaume-Charles Brun’s work The young rag seller, 1870 sold for $52,500, while noted French cityscape painter Maurice Utrillo’s Rue Lepic à Montmartre sold for $48,750.

Belgian artist Anto Carte’s The Annunciation, 1923 sold for $47,500. A large painting of the The Virgin Mary adoring the Christ Child, circa 1645 by rare Baroque painter Matteo Loves brought $32,500.

Additional highlights include, but are not limited to:

Neige, circa 1890 by Jean-Baptiste-Armand Guillaumin: Realized $45,000

Paysage d’automne aux environs de Saint-Tropez, 1922 by Henri Charles Manguin: Realized $42,500

Divinitié, 1967 by Vu Cao Dam: Realized $37,500

Maris Ruenes: Sculpture Purses at the West Irving Library

Ruenesceramicpurse

INSIDE THE CLOSET: SCULPTURE PURSES

Maria Ruenes is an Irving Art Association member who works in 3-D art forms: clay sculpture and paper mache Alebrijes.  From our September demonstrator  Pastor Garcia, she learned the paper mache technique of making the Mexican style fantastical creatures.  An exhibit is planned for fall for the Alebrijes.

Her exhibit of clay and ceramic purses is currently on view in the glass cabinets at the West Irving Library (4444 W. Rochelle near the intersection of Rochelle & Esters.) May 28 through July 30, 2017

Brochure:  IAA2017MariaRuenesExhibitBrochure

Her Artist Statement:

First, when I began to work with clay I was just playing with it. I made vases, bowls, boxes, etc. Suddenly I wanted to do something different, something that could express my feelings.

At this point I thought about purses. Purses are an expression of fashion, taste, and comfort. They have to be functional but beautiful at the same time. And I remember my mother with her purse every single moment of the day. Since those days I realized how important a purse is. There are purses for every occasion, so I think of a special moment to create a new purse. If I am peaceful and calm, I think about the beach, so I make a beach purse, or a tote. If I am more excited and want to go out and have fun, I do an evening purse, or a clutch.

So that’s the way I work, I express my feelings through them. Each one is unique as life itself. Every single moment you live is unrepeatable so the purses are the same. They are unrepeatable and unique. I have memories for each one, so each one has a different story.

One Step Ahead Artist Talk June 17 at SDCC

onestepaheadJune17

“One Step Ahead”

Artist Talk
Sat. June 17, 2017 3:00pm – 5:00pm

One Step Ahead is a joint exhibition by Lyndon Barrois Jr. and Kahlil Robert Irving, that excavates a pivotal period of American culture and politics, examining loss as a stifling of progress. Reflecting on the affects of the assassinations of Civil Rights leaders Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr., Barrois Jr. and Irving mine cultural iconography, both celestial and terrestrial, presenting metaphorical and juxtapositional gestures that bring historic concerns into our present condition. Through both traditional and inventive strategies of making, One Step Ahead draws from the eponymous 1967 song by Aretha Franklin, which touches on time and the inevitability of heartbreak where love is concerned. In acknowledging two lives, two assassinations, and two directions of thought towards the progress of Black life in the United States, the artist hope to prompt past, present, and future reflections on mortality, while working to translate their perspectives into alternate ways of understanding identity and protest.

About the Artists:

Lyndon Barrois Jr. has exhibited nationally, including solo exhibitions at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, the University of Illinois Springfield Visual Arts Gallery, Fort Gondo Compound for the Arts (St. Louis), and group exhibitions at La Esquina (Kansas City), the Chicago Artist Coalition (Chicago) and Blackburn 20/20 Gallery (New York), to name a few. He received an MFA from the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Art at Washington University in St. Louis. He has held residencies at Atlantic Center for the Arts, Arteles Creative Center in Finland, and Nes Artist Residency in Iceland. Barrois Jr. was a teaching artist at the Stony Island Arts Bank in Chicago and a faculty member at Washington University and Webster University. He is currently the Museum Educator at Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis.

Kahlil Robert Irving is a multimedia artist living and working in Saint Louis, Missouri. He recently completed his undergraduate degree at the Kansas City Art Institute, double majoring in Art History and Ceramics. Currently he is pursuing a Master of Fine Arts at Washington University in St. Louis. At Washington University, Irving is a Chancellor’s Graduate Fellow. His work in the collections of the Riga Porcelain Museum, in Riga, Latvia; Foundation for Contemporary Ceramic Art in Kecskemet, Hungary, and the Ken Ferguson Teaching Collection at the Kansas City Art Institute in Kansas City, Missouri. His work has also been exhibited at the Vox Populi Gallery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Kansas City Artist Coalition, Kansas City, Missouri; Glassell School and Museum of fine art, Houston, Texas; and the Visual Arts Center, Boise State University, Boise, Idaho.

Darlia Hobbs Experimental Painting Exhibit opens June 2 in Fort Worth

DarliaPaint can Fly

“Paint Can Fly – VII” by Darlia Hobbs

June 2 – June 29, 2017

Reception: June 2, 2017; 6 – 9pm

Fort Worth Community Arts Center

Darlia Hobbs has traveled to more than 14 countries and 10 oceans/ seas finding eclectic influences for her mixed-media, experimental, and abstract art. Since I began painting, the world of art has been like a rushing river as I stand on the shore and watch it flow by. It’s difficult to take my eyes off of the beautiful, ever-changing flow of ideas, art, and inspirations I see at different depths in the water. The temptation to touch and plunge into the water is irresistible. Once in the water, the feeling is so soothing and satisfying – yet does not quench my thirst for more.

Instinct and experimentation guide me through the process of each piece of art. Often, I dream of new ideas and variations of techniques I’ve seen or tried. What’s truly amazing and rewarding is the friendships of other artists and their willingness to share ideas and techniques. This allows each of us to choose many bright stars from across the art universe to create and evolve our own evergrowing and changing galaxy.

I like to remember some wisdom from artist Ellen J. Langer: “…rules often blind us.” And, “Once we learn how to do something, too often we stop experimenting, learning, and having fun.” NOT ME!

Amon Carter presents “The Polaroid Project” June 3 – Sept. 3

Polaroid carey_196_thumb

Amon Carter Museum of American Art Presents “The Polaroid Project: At the Intersection of Art and Technology”

FORT WORTH, Texas—The Amon Carter Museum of American Art presents The Polaroid Project: At the Intersection of Art and Technology, a sweeping overview of the Polaroid phenomenon featuring the work of more than 100 artist-photographers along with examples of the tools and artifacts that helped make Polaroid a household name. The exhibition, which makes its U.S. debut at the Amon Carter, highlights the wide-ranging and often surprising uses of Polaroid materials through 136 images, including works by such heralded artists as Ellen Carey (b. 1952), Chuck Close (b. 1940), Marie Cosindas (b. 1925), Barbara Crane (b. 1928), David Hockney (b. 1937), Robert Rauschenberg (1925–2008) and Andy Warhol (1928–1987). The exhibition is on view June 3 through September 3, 2017; admission is free.

“Polaroid was the epitome of instant imaging long before the digital age,” says Joy Jeehye Kim, Assistant Curator of Photographs. “This show reveals the energy of artists who embraced the technology as a novel medium of experimentation.”

Visitors to the exhibition will see how artists experimented in black-and-white and color and produced images ranging widely in size and shape from modest 3” x 4” portraits to large dream-like mosaics built from 20” x 24” prints. Pervading all is an atmosphere of constant experimentation and energetic play as artists interrogate and reimagine the very purpose of photography.

Polaroid nitsch_1007_s

The Polaroid Project reveals the Polaroid Corporation’s technical and marketing roots, but it also showcases the company’s unusually strong and extensive commitment to art, starting with founder Edwin Land’s (1901–1991) close friendship with the great landscape photographer Ansel Adams (1902–1984), who often tested the Corporation’s new cameras and films in the mid-1950s and was an avid promoter of its achievements.

The Polaroid Corporation stood proudly at the forefront of photographic image-making in a world that had come to believe that easier and faster meant better. The company’s invention and production of finely designed, high-quality, yet easy-to-use cameras and films brought virtual immediacy to a medium that previously lived by the notion of “shoot and wait.” Land was a proud, ever-pushing genius who never hesitated to sound messianic in his pronouncements about Polaroid’s technical achievements. Like the romantic scientists of a hundred years earlier with whom he identified, Land believed his invention would not merely serve mankind in myriad ways, at work and in leisure, in the arts and the sciences, but even advance democracy.

During Polaroid’s prime, its cameras and films were purchased by millions of amateurs and countless professionals. While families recorded their anniversaries and graduation parties, filmmakers and fashion photographers made test shots, scientists recorded their observations, and police documented crime scenes, artists embraced the new medium as a grand new tool for image-making and experimentation. At the heart of it all was instantaneity—no longer did photographers have to send films to a lab, and wait for days or weeks, or even go into a darkroom for a laborious chemical process. With Polaroid’s instant range, photographer and subject could watch together as the image took form before their eyes. Polaroid not only transformed photography, it set the foundation for the expectation of immediate results we are so accustomed to today.

Supplementing the exhibition’s artworks are rare artifacts from the Polaroid Corporation archives that trace the development of the technology from Land’s early work with 3D photographs in military service during World War II and his initial development of instant cameras and film to the company’s famous SX-70 and Spectra cameras. In addition to presenting production models of both cameras and films, the exhibition also includes prototypes made of paper, plastic and wood that illuminate the creative puzzle-solving of the company scientists, engineers and technicians working through how to shift photography from fast to instant by way of elegant packaging. Together, the objects and photographs reveal how artists helped shape Polaroid even as Polaroid coaxed artists into exploring new ways of seeing and visually imagining the world.

“The exhibition drives home the company’s deep belief that art could and should be made anytime, anywhere, by anyone,” says Kim. “Polaroid, quite literally, taught the public not merely a new way of seeing, but a new way of relating to the world.”

Interactive cards that include information about the Polaroid Corporation’s cameras, film and history will be scattered throughout the exhibition for visitors of all ages to use. Large print labels will also be available for use in the galleries.

The Polaroid Project has been organized by the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography, Minneapolis/New York/Paris/Lausanne, in collaboration with the MIT Museum, Cambridge, Mass., and the WestLicht Museum for Photography, Vienna. After the exhibition closes at the Amon Carter, it travels to the WestLicht Museum for Photography, where it is on view December 5, 2017 to March 4, 2018. In 2018 and 2019, the exhibition will also tour theC/O Berlin, Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg, McCord Museum in Montreal and MIT Museum.

In conjunction with the exhibition, the Amon Carter will sell a catalogue for $40 in the Museum Store.

PAM FRITZ featured artist

Pam has been a member of LGAA for 17 years. Lately, her work has been abstract and non objective and she has switched from water color to acrylic.  Pam loves bright colors and is coming out of a “red phase”.  She has also been working with collage and Zen Tangle, so mixing everything together seems to be her new path.  Pam says her art association is a great group to be inspired by and she is looking forward to being the featured artist at ‘Last Saturday Gallery Night.’ Below is a sample of Pam’s beautiful works.

Art of the West Debuts in June 10-12 Fine and Decorative Arts Auction

DixonHeritage

Highlights from premier western artists include Maynard Dixon, Gene Kloss, Harry Jackson and Phillip Goodwin

 

DALLAS, Texas (May 24, 2017) – Heritage Auctions is pleased to debut Art of the West, which will be included in theJune 10 Fine and Decorative Arts including Estate auction and showcases over 100 paintings by historical and contemporary Western Artists. June’s Art of the West division will feature entry level price points as well as strong quality works from artists such as Maynard Dixon, Gene Kloss, Harry Jackson and Phillip Goodwin.

 

“As the western market continues to thrive and market values continue to increase, I wanted to make sure that Western Art remains accessible to collectors at various levels,” explained Director of Western Art Alissa Ford. “This mid-season sale also allows consignors to participate in an earlier auction if waiting for the fall is not an option.”

 

Dixon moved in 1940 to Tucson, Arizona, where he began to explore the Hispanic and Native American life of the region.Portrait of a Native American, 1940 (est. $3,000-5,000) is most likely the product of the artist spotting a compelling subject on one of his explorations and creating a highly finished work accentuating the striking features of the young woman.

GoodwinHeritage

Goodwin’s The Hunter (est. $2,000-3,000) is an appealing study that depicts his love for hunting, fishing, cowboy scenes and scenes featuring firearms.

 

Any collection of western memorabilia isn’t complete without a work by the renowned novelist and cowboy artist Will James. His dynamic sketch To the Boy Scouts, Hoping you Never Lose a Stirrup, study, 1926 (est. $3,000-5,000) illustrates James’ talent for capturing the energetic movement and iconic imagery of the life of the cowboy.

 

Several outstanding works represent the female artists of the West, including Ila McAfee’s Fawn (est. $2,000-3,000), which captures her lifelong love for modeling animals, and Gene Kloss’ etchingsStaurolite Ledge Above Taos, 1973 (est. $1,000-1,500) and Age-old Rhythm, 1973 (est. $800-1,200) which demonstrates Kloss’ nationally acclaimed and meticulous etching methods depicting the life and landscape of the Southwest. Louisa McElwain’s Silver Rain (est. $4,000-6,000) also displays her love for the Southern landscape through the use of a bold palette and strong surface aesthetics created by use of the palette knife.

 

Among the highlights of the sale, which include a strong representation of western and wildlife sculpture, is Harry Jackson’s Pony Express III (est. $2,000-3,000).

 

Noted contemporary western artists in the June auction include Ray Swanson, Joe Velazquez and Tim Solliday. Swanson’s Navajo Brothers, 1975 (est. $6,000-8,000), Velazquez’s Approach of a New Season (est. $3,000-5,000) and Solliday’s Desert Landscape (est. $4,000-6,000) are all highly refined works that capture the beauty of the great American West.

 

Heritage Auctions continues to grow the market for Art of the West, and is looking continually for original pieces through consignment. Contact Alissa Ford at 214-409-1926 or alissaf@ha.com if you are interested in consigning your Art of the West.
