The TX Studio Creative Residency

One resident is selected each month. 3 half day reservations with access to both Studio I & Studio II ($1200 Value) All residents will have the opportunity to showcase their work at our ‘End of Year’ gallery

https://www.thetxstudio.com/residency

On March 1st, The TX Studio opened its doors to Dallas as a Natural Light
Rental Studio. The  founders built The TX Studio to give Dallas’ creative community their own place to create. Available for hourly rental, The TX Studio is the first Dallas natural lightphotography studio equipped with rolling black and white backdrops, seasonal paper rolls, andhandmade tabletops.

Today, the founders are excited to announce the latest way they are fulfilling the studio mission:offering Dallas’ first ‘Creative Residency’ Studio Program.

This program will provide one creative individual each month with access to The TX Studio–free of charge.

“We’ve only been operating two months and the overwhelming support from the creative community has already been remarkable,” says co-founder, Doug Klembara. “We want to showDFW that we care about quality, creative work–and we’re serious about investing in it.”

Kelsi Klembara, Co-Founder and studio manager shares how The TX Studio ‘CreativeResidency’ program came to life. “We found out that one of the photographer’s using the space, Allie Norado, pooled funds with her friends to cover their total rental cost. They pulled off one of the most inspiring shoots we’ve had so far. After that, Allie approached us to see we were doing any type of ambassador program.” This prompted the TX Studio team to begin thinking about how to use The TX Studio to encourage rising creatives who want to make something beautiful.

The TX Studio is proud to announce that Allie Norado will be the first resident of this monthly program. Each resident receives 3 half-day shoots with access to both studios for free (valued at$1200). At the end of the year, the TX Studio will host a gallery event featuring the best of each resident’s work.

The application process for the May Creative Residency is now open and available to the public here: thetxstudio.com/residency.
A new resident will be announced during the final week of each month.

Giddens Gallery call for artists

Giddens Gallery is continuously reviewing portfolios and interviewing artists interested in joining the Gallery in marketing their art.

Contact the Gallery, 817-488-8600 or cheriegiddens@juno.com, for an appointment/interview.

Resident Artists Testimonies

“My experience with Giddens Gallery has been most rewarding.  Cherie and John have been warm and hospitable “hosts”.  They are both very easy to work with and amenable to suggestions.  The other artists in the gallery are some of the greatest people I have been around.  They bring an impressive mix of styles and media to our clients.  From my experience it is truly a first class operation without being elitist.”
Jerome Weilmuenster

“Giddens Gallery of Fine Art has widened my client base this past year.  With their interactive monthly gallery receptions, clients are invited to enjoy a wide variety of fine art in beautiful surroundings while noshing and sipping. As an artist, Cherie Giddens is an enthusiastic proprietor for those new to collecting as well as the more experienced. Both Cherie and John are involved with the city, art community and always reaching out to a broader audience both electronically and face-to-face. This has been my favorite and most profitable gallery association thus far.”
Rosemary Riddle-Achelpohl

“As a professional artist, I have found that Giddens Gallery has offered an excellent type of venue. The location is excellent, the gallery is beautiful, and the owners are gems.  I have the upmost confidence in their integrity and never worry about damage or loss of my paintings, delinquent or incorrect payment of sales.  Honesty, integrity and business principles reign at Giddens Gallery. It is these values that brought success to my art career and it is an honor to be associated with such an upstanding gallery with the same values.”

Participate in the 5X5 Art Show! Call for artists

My name is Savannah Lovelace and I am the Development Coordinator at The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children-Texas Regional Office. We have a big art show on May 5th at McKinney & Olive in downtown Dallas and are hoping the talented artists of DFW are willing to help by creating art to help protect a Dallas child. The Cinco De Mayo 5X5 Art Show benefits the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children-Texas Regional Office.

The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children Texas Regional Office provides safety education to children, families, schools and the larger community in Texas. We also provide training, technical assistance and resources to law enforcement personnel and others who investigate crimes committed against children, specifically cases of child sexual exploitation. According to the FBI, in 2016 there were 465,676 NCIC entries for missing children – 10% were from Texas. NCMEC never stops searching and our hope is that through our programs, we can work to reduce this number.

JuxtaPositions call for artists

JuxtaPositions

Deadline: May 10, 2018 Fee (USD): $40.00

The Painting Center, an artist-run gallery in Chelsea, announces a call for entries for its juried summer exhibition “JuxtaPositions”. We invite artists of all stripes to submit work that excites by forging new connections, and surprises by discovering unexpected juxtapositions.

Creativity isn’t only about making entirely new things out of whole cloth. The creative process can involve seeing old things in new contexts; joining things that previously seemed completely unrelated; or turning conventions, tropes and ideas upside down and inside out. Sometimes, these juxtapositions are humorous; sometimes, they are enigmatic, or striking; sometimes, they are shocking. High and low, serious and funny, real and fake, observed and invented, political and personal…these are all choices an artist can make in his or her work…but they aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive.

In a culture that is stuffed full of imagery, icons, argument, products, brands and just plain junk, can we invent something new by mining, reframing, re-contextualizing, and re-conceiving some of the ideas and objects that make up the cultural moment in which we live?

“JuxtaPositions” is open to all media. http://www.chicagoartistsresource.org/calls-for-artists/juxtapositions

Exhibition Dates: June 19 – July 14, 2018 – Deadline for Submission: May 10, 2018 – Notification Date: May 18, 2018 – Artwork Shipping/Delivery Dates: June 12 – June 16, 2018 – Opening Reception: Thursday, June 21, 6 – 8 pm – Application Fee: $40 for 1 to 5 images – Size Limitation: Artwork that exceeds 36″ in any dimension will not be considered. – Image Requirements: JPEGs must be 72 dpi. They should be at least 1600 pixels in any direction. Maximum file size for any individual image is 5 MB.

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 of 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.
