First Sculpture: Handaxe to Figure Stone

January 27, 2018 – April 28, 2018

First Sculpture: Handaxe to Figure Stone is the first museum exhibition to present ancient handaxes and figure stones as works of art. Traditionally understood as the longest-used tool in human history, with examples dating back more than 2 million years, some handaxes are equally fascinating for their non-utilitarian, aesthetic qualities.

Cindi Holt: Inside Looking Out opens Sat., Feb. 3 at Valley House

Join us for the opening reception for “Cindi Holt: Inside Looking Out” this Saturday, February 3, 6:00pm–8:00pm. View images of paintings in the exhibition online at www.valleyhouse.com

Cindi Holt is a self-taught artist who was first inspired to paint in 1985 when she was 34 years of age. Her richly-detailed paintings are imaginative, carefree responses to a place. Even the formal rooms she painted of the Texas Governor’s Mansion in the 1990’s have an energetic warp described by Clint Willour, “Patterns are chalk-a-block: bumping into one another; climbing over each other; jostling for space. Flowers on tables mate with those in the carpet and in paintings on the wall. Furniture takes on human form: chairs bow and tables stand on tiptoe…”

Central Market commissioned Cindi Holt to paint a three-panel panorama of the highlights of Fort Worth for their Fort Worth store, and a four-part mural for their cafe at the Preston Royal location in Dallas. The original paintings are on view at The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History and the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, respectively. Her painting “The Red Room” graced the 2004 Christmas card from The White House.

Cindi Holt is a California native who lives in Fort Worth and has been represented by Valley House Gallery since 2003.

Cindi Holt will give an Artist Talk on Saturday, February 17, at 11:00am.

The exhibition will be on view through March 10, 2018.

First Exhibition to Explore Eduardo Chillida’s Multitude of Media to Open at the Meadows Museum

Related Show Highlights Chillida’s Connections to Dallas

Dallas, TX – February 1, 2018 – This spring, the Meadows Museum will present Dallas’s first exhibition dedicated exclusively to the work of Eduardo Chillida (1924–2002). Chillida, one of Spain’s most celebrated modern sculptors, is famous for his monumental iron and stone sculptures that shape both urban and rural landscapes. This exhibition includes 66 of the artist’s works, from his sculptures, to his drawings, collages, gravitations, graphic works, and a selection of his books. Co-curated by William Jeffett, chief curator of exhibitions for The Dalí Museum, and Ignacio Chillida, the artist’s son, the works in Memory, Mind, Matter: The Sculpture of Eduardo Chillida come exclusively from the Museo Chillida-Leku in Hernani (San Sebastián, Spain); the exhibition travels to Dallas from the Salvador Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida. A complimentary exhibition, Chillida in Dallas: De Musica at the Meyerson, is curated by Meadows/Mellon/Prado Curatorial Fellow Amanda W. Dotseth and will focus on the landmark commission by Chillida at Dallas’s Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center. The two exhibitions will open on February 4, 2018, and run through June 3.

Memory, Mind, Matter: The Sculpture of Eduardo Chillida focuses on the mature part of Chillida’s career, when he produced works such as Peine del Viento XV (Wind Comb) in 1976 and Elogio del Horizonte (Eulogy to the Horizon) in 1990, while also presenting important, rarely displayed works. The exhibition addresses the artist’s interest in space and form, which is anchored to the human body and to organic elements found in nature. His works express both the power of nature and humanity’s physical strength. Instead of seeing his works as abstract—an idea Chillida rejected—the exhibition demonstrates his connection to the pre-war avant-garde’s interest in human subjectivity and its poetic notions of form. The exhibition also includes a reflection on the artist’s engagement with poetry and philosophy in his artists’ books, and his admiration for writers of the period.

 

Chillida is also celebrated for the variety of media used in his works, including iron, stone, ceramic, alabaster and paper. His iron and steel sculptures are made of solid metal, while his alabaster works are made from a single piece of stone. His works on paper, known as gravitations, include the layering of pages to create a collage, creating an effect of shadows, weight and tension between the paper. Additionally, the pieces of paper are stitched together, which creates a contrast of negative and positive space in the cut outs. In connection to his Basque roots, Chillida’s works evoke interlocking fingers, arms and hands. He saw hands as an instrument for interaction with the earth: they are how the artist holds and shapes his materials. Eduardo Chillida’s use of natural forms in connection with the Basque country is best described in the artist’s own words: “In my Basque Country I feel at home, like a tree that is adapted to its territory, rooted in its earth but with its arms open to the world.”

 

“Eduardo Chillida is well-known to our community, by sight if not by name, as Dallas is fortunate to be home to one of his most important public sculptures,” said Mark Roglán, the Linda P. and William A. Custard Director of the Meadows Museum. “This exhibition shows Chillida’s different sides through his visionary use of materials, from the power of stone to the lightness of paper. We are thrilled to bring these works to Dallas and expand our understanding of one of the most important and influential modern Spanish sculptors.”

 

Chillida in Dallas: De música at the Meyerson, explores the monumental sculpture located in front of the Morton H. Myerson Symphony Center in Dallas. Chillida was selected for the commission by the Dallas Symphony Foundation Arts Committee, in close consultation with architect and Committee member I.M. Pei. What resulted was the impressive De música, Dallas XV (On Music, Dallas XV), which contains two imposing 15-foot-high cylinders of more than 3 feet in diameter, with commanding and elegant arm-like extensions. The work embodies Chillida’s artistic philosophy, his interest in Saint Augustine (after whose treatise on music the sculpture is named), and in the mystical number three. De música is the only public work by Chillida on display in Dallas and represents a dialogue between Chillida and architect I. M. Pei, who designed the Symphony Center’s glass and granite building.

 

Memory, Mind, Matter: The Sculpture of Eduardo Chillida will be accompanied by a catalogue with full color illustrations of the 66 works by Eduardo Chillida in the exhibition, along with an introduction by the artist’s son Ignacio Chillida, and essays by Hank Hine (Director of The Dalí Museum), Nausica Sanchez (Fundación Eduardo Chillida-Pilar Belzunce), and William Jeffett. The catalogue includes the artist’s biography, use of media, distinctive motifs, and artists’ books.

GALLERY TALK: Chillida in Dallas Part II: Chillida in Dallas

Scott Winterrowd, director of education, Meadows Museum

 

Born in San Sebastián, Spain, in the Basque region, Eduardo Chillida’s works are international, located in Spain, Europe, and the Americas. Throughout his career, Chillida debuted exhibitions at The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Museum of Modern Art in New York, including retrospectives at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (1966), and the Carnegie Institute in Pittsburgh (1979). He received several awards, including the Graham Foundation Award for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, the International Grand Prize for Sculpture at the Venice Biennale, both in 1958; the Kandinsky Prize in 1960; and the Carnegie Prize in 1964 and in 1979, shared with painter Willem de Kooning.

 

This exhibition is co-organized by The Dalí Museum and Fundación Eduardo Chillida–Pilar Belzunce, in collaboration with the Meadows Museum, SMU, Dallas. Additional support for the Meadows Museum’s presentation is generously provided by The Meadows Foundation.

 

About the Fundación Eduardo Chillida–Pilar Belzunce

All works presented in Memory, Mind, Matter: The Sculpture of Eduardo Chillida have been graciously loaned by the Fundación Eduardo Chillida–Pilar Belzunce. The foundation was created in 2000 and is based in Hernani, Spain. The foundation was formed with the purpose to “deepen the knowledge of the artistic work of Mr. Eduardo Chillida Juantegui, promoting its knowledge and dissemination.” The foundation is connected with the Museo Chillida-Leku which opened in 2000. The museum showcases the largest collection of Eduardo Chillida’s work and provides an intimate space for visitors to enjoy the works of this great, modern sculptor.

 

About the Meadows Museum

The Meadows Museum is the leading U.S. institution focused on the study and presentation of the art of Spain. In 1962, Dallas businessman and philanthropist Algur H. Meadows donated his private collection of Spanish paintings, as well as funds to start a museum, to Southern Methodist University. The museum opened to the public in 1965, marking the first step in fulfilling Meadows’s vision to create “a small Prado for Texas.”

 

Today, the Meadows is home to one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of Spanish art outside Spain. The collection spans from the 10th to the 21st centuries and includes medieval objects, Renaissance and Baroque sculptures, and major paintings by Golden Age and modern masters. Since 2010 the museum has been engaged in a multidimensional partnership with the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid, which has included the exchange of scholarship, exhibitions, works of art, and other resources.

On Creativity…
The Nasher Sculpture Center is presenting a must-see, jaw-dropping, simply stunning exhibition through April 28. First Sculpture: Handaxe to Figure Stone is the first ever museum exhibition to present ancient handaxes and figure stones as works of art. Proposed by American artist, Tony Berlant, who has amassed a large collection of Paleolithic stones, research for the exhibition lasted nearly a decade and brought in notable archeologists, anthropologists, historians, neuroscientists and artists from around the world.
The oldest artifact is a large pebble found in South Africa – The Makapansgat Pebble – is the earliest known example of a hominin (our pre-historic ancestors) recognizing and collecting a found object that resembled a face, demonstrating a capacity for symbolic thinking. But what’s evenmore astounding is this artifact is estimated to be 2.3 million years old!
Artist Unknown, Makapansgat Pebble, ca. 2.5 million
The word “artifact” comes from two Latin words – arte or “by skill” and factum or “to make”. So, when the Neanderthals began shaping stones into tools, they essentially were the very first makers. And those makers evolved from making just simply utilitarian tools, to developing an aesthetic intent.
As Dr. Naama Goren-Inbar, a professor of archaeology at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, pointed out in her talk at the recent  Nasher’s 360 Speaker Series, artistic process is evident everywhere, including planning, spatial thinking, contingency and cooperation. Archaeologists have been able to determine that select handaxes were made by the same individuals. Pre-historic man discovered that tools could be both functional and beautiful.
You can travel back in time to discover the origins of sculpture and artistic intent on Feb 10 from 10am to noon as you create your own stone carving during the Nasher’s Rock of Ages Workshop.

El Corazón exhibition has been one of the most popular art events at the Bath House Cultural Center since the show was first presented in 1993. Every year, this Dallas exhibition presents over sixty regional, national and international artists with pieces that explore multiple interpretations of the human heart (El Corazón), an important and stimulating symbol in art.

The Bath House is celebrating the musical arts in 2018 by hosting a music festival (Lake-a-Palooza!) and unveiling two new music-themed mural paintings inside the building’s lake level later this year.  In line with the celebration, Jose Vargas, the Curator of the show, also suggested a theme of music for this year’s El Corazón exhibition.  He states that: “When it comes to combining the symbol of the heart and the concept of music, the possibilities are endless.”  Music, however, is not the only concept explored by the participating artists, making this show as diverse and engaging as it has always been.

The exhibition features art by Andres Aceves, Mirtha Aertker, Pablo Azar, Rita Barnard, Jessica Bell, Kimberly Bradshaw Meadows, Kristina Carbrey, Sara Cardona, Kim Carothers, Andrea Cook, Sharon Covington, Mariana De Yta , Jenna Deslaurier, Glenn Downing, Martha Francis, Charlene Goldman, Brandy González, Rebecca Guy, Justin Higgs, Jessica Hills, Chad Hines, Marcela Kourkova, MaryEllen Lacy, Cindy Lemmon, M3AT, Jackie MacLelland, Marian Maldonado-Pagán, Samuel Chuck McCarter, Sarah McDaniel , Margo Miller, Yamel Molerio, Karla Mora Mora, Crystal Murley, Sharon O’Callaghan Shero, Caroline Ometz, Julie Pearson, Maia Pizarro, Michelle Purvis, Christopher Rahmeh, Ann Ranson, Ellen Ray, Gail Roberts, Rene Rocha, Lesley Rucker, Joe Sarate, Teresa Shields, Mary Southall, Pam Stern, Christine Stoddard, Wendy Tigchelaar, Mary Ann Turner, Jose Vargas, Lisa Vollrath, Joan Wheeler, ME Wilcox, Lorena Williams, and Kelly Witte.

The Janette Kennedy Gallery Presents Not Comets: the Early Years of Charles Messier, French Comet Hunter

The Janette Kennedy Gallery Presents Not Comets: A Biographical Account of the Early Years of Charles Messier, French Comet Hunter

Photos and objects by Tom Sale with additional works from Amie Carson, Dottie Love, Julia Schloss and Becky Ramotowski

WHAT:                Tom Sale is known for his elaborate historical narratives such as 2014 Florence Project (about the life of Florence Nightingale). Not Comets: A Biographical Account of the Early Years of Charles Messier, French Comet Hunter is told mainly through photographs (with a few sculptures and objects). Messier was an 18th century French astronomer whom the gallery visitor will discover had many secrets not told in today’s history books. Images hint at the science of photography being used decades before photography is known to be invented, and in Messier’s astral world, it is not only scientific instruments he used to detect heavenly objects. Sale also called on a few friends to help tell this story. A fabric sculpture by Amie Carson, nontraditional photography by Becky Ramotowski, historical avian photography by Dottie Love, and a whimsical series of photographs by Julia Schloss round out this story of stars and an unusual friendship.

[Art Exhibition]Thus, We Scatter, as We Go by Nathan Porterfield

Fort Worth Community Arts Center is proud to present, Thus, We Scatter, as We Go by Nathan Porterfield. The exhibition date is March 2, 2018-March 29, 2018, from 9AM-5PM. The closing reception will be on our Spring Gallery Night, March 24, 2018, from 6PM-9PM.

Nathan Porterfield’s current work involves individual identity in current culture, in reference to American history. Using accessible, common materials, he creates a confluence of patterns to imply the intersection of countless sensibilities and convictions. The imagery has developed recently into portraits, or sorts, in which the subjects (Units of Resistance) express their perspectives.

Nathan’s works are an homage to those, oppressed and repressed who have stood for change and therein been the backbone of progress. His works are portraits of personal individuality, yet homogeneous spirit.

Thus, We Scatter, as We Go is a survey of his production from 2015 and 2016, with a concentration on alternative materials and exploring the subtleties of evolving society.

“OBLIVIOUS” by Patrick Mcgrath Muñiz

“OBLIVIOUS” by Patrick Mcgrath Muñiz

March 2 – March 29, 2018 

Reception: March 24, 2018; 6 – 9pm 

The work presented in OBLIVIOUS is Houston-based artist Patrick McGrath Muñiz’s response to the capitalist consumerist society with its apparent indifference to the rising threat of climate change. After experiencing Harvey in Houston, and witnessing Hurricane Maria passing over Puerto Rico and Irma in Florida, where most of his family and friends live, Muñiz feels the responsibility to tell the story of climate change the way he knows it. As an artist with a Roman Catholic background and growing up in the island of Puerto Rick, Muñiz has a deep personal interest in reconnecting with history by adopting Renaissance painting techniques and retablos reminiscent of Spanish Colonial Art in his painting, bridging historical continuity between the Colonial and the Neo-colonial narratives present in the Anthropocene, an epoch defined by the enormous impact of human activities on the Earth’s ecosystems.

Patrick McGrath Muñiz is an artist from Puerto Rico who currently exhibits his work across the U.S. and abroad while residing and working in Houston, Texas. His work consists primarily of oil paintings addressing current issues such as Neo-Colonialism and Consumerism. Patrick’s work can be found at the Albuquerque Museum in New Mexico, the Mesa Contemporary Art Museum in Mesa, Arizona, the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia, as well as a number of private collections in the United States, Caribbean, and Latin America.

Color Me… Contemporary! Feb. 3 at Southwest Gallery

In celebration of contemporary art Southwest Gallery cordially invites you to
 
COLOR ME CONTEMPORARY
Saturday, February 3rd  from 1-5 pm
 
MEET THE ARTISTS
 and experience their colorful new works!
4500 Sigma Rd.  Dallas, Texas 75244    972.960.8935    800.272.9910   www.swgallery.com

Paul Walden refers to “Apparent Chaos” when viewing his paintings in a limited sense. They appear chaotic but the subconscious elements create order and harmony within the composition. “The repetition of the painting & the layering techniques I have developed are the tools that allow the perceptions of an underlying order to emerge.”

Mark Whitmarsh creates relationships that excite the eye through exploration of light, color and space.  “As I build layers of color, a personal iconography evolves on the painted surface.”

Tony Saladino‘s use of color and subject matter make for beautifully executed works that are not only pleasing to the eye but thought-provoking as well. “I try to use each medium’s scale and characteristics to its advantage, to give my imagination an avenue which can explore truth on a two dimensional plane.

Dennis Johnson‘s paintings do not have to relate to anything or follow rules. It simply invites us to think, to reflect, to open our mind to the possibility that all art has to do is make us feel.

Rachel Meginnes + Kelly O’Briant: What Remains opens Feb. 1 at Haggerty Gallery in Irving

New Exhibition | Rachel Meginnes + Kelly O’Briant: What Remains

Please join us for the opening reception of What Remains on Thursday, February 1, 5:30-8 p.m.

  • Artist talk | 5:30 to 6 p.m., Art History Auditorium
  • Reception | 6 to 8:00 p.m., Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery

What Remains speaks to both visual and conceptual depth – of the inherent memory embedded in the works of artist-educator Rachel Meginnes and Kelly O’Briant, assistant professor of ceramics, at the University of Dallas. For Meginnes, actual material, in the form of reclaimed textiles, forms the foundation of her process, a physical and metaphorical layering of wear and re-adapting, moving forward and revealing the past. In the work of O’Briant, the remainders are often phantom forms – a chimaera or abstraction of scientific theory. Her work in ceramics has explored the notions of dark matter, light and shadow, the passage of time. For this exhibition, O’Briant mines the emotional effect of unsettlement and reconstruction – the physical act of carrying the past forward.

We are delighted that both artists will be on campus to give an artist presentation at the reception on Thursday, Feb.1 at 5:30 p.m. in the Haggar Auditorium in the Art Village on the University of Dallas campus, followed by a reception in the gallery. The exhibition is available for viewing through Saturday, Mar. 3, 2018.  

This exhibition is curated by Kathryn Gremley, Director of Penland Galler and travels to us from the Penland School of Craft in North Carolina. To view an online catalog of the show and for more information on the great work they do at Penland visit here.
