Your Private Collection Art Gallery’s Annual Open House Nov. 25

Saturday, November 25, 5-8pm

Your Private Collection invites you to join its once a year celebration. Known for world-class art and highly-awarded artists, the art gallery is sparkling with brand-new art and some new talent.

Meet our new, pastel artists, Cat Curtis and Julie Howard. Greet Lael Nelson, watercolorist; Kimm Lanus, mixed media; Jeremiah Bova, sculptor and Susie Monzingo, oil painter.

As well, all gallery artists and staff will be there to welcome you. Come share delightful conversation and rub elbows with top artists–Sharon Markwardt, Randy Meador, Bob Cook, Jack Wolfsen, Roberta Mallard, Van Johnson, Pam Tullos, Soon y Warren, Chuck Roach and many more.

The Your Private Collection family is diverse, friendly and gifted and will treat you like family. That is, according to owner and phosphorescent sculptor, Stacey Watkins. Each day she sees artists and customers connect through art.

“Each one of our artists creates with a sense of spirit guiding their hands and the viewer can feel this energy flowing from the art.”

Watkins is “passionate” about her gallery and its special atmosphere and invites you to share in it. “As we move into the Christmas season, it’s time to show love and be thankful. And I am so very thankful for our wonderful group of artists,” she said.

“Please join us to usher in the Holidays and to meet our artists.”

Galleries of Granbury venues are hosting holiday Open House Events, as well, from 5- 8 pm.
Your Private Collection Art Gallery, Artefactz, Against the Grain Studio and D’Vine Wine will offer a very merry evening of art.

This Saturday! 500x Openings include Valerie Powell and Tabatha Trolli, Project Spaces, reception 7-10pm

500x Gallery Exhibitions

November 11 – December 3, 2017

Reception – November 11, 7pm-10pm

 

On Water 
solo exhibition by Valerie Powell
Downstairs / Main Gallery

Valerie Powell’s solo exhibition, On Water, features new drawings and sculptures as well as a site specific wall installation, informed by the rising water of hurricane Harvey on the Houston area, where she lives. Inspired by both the devastation caused by Harvey as well as the resilience of the human condition witnessed by the kindness and generosity felt by many after the storm, this exhibition of new work explores the tension of being under/on water. Continuing to investigate the complexities of being human, Powell’s new work reflects upon memories of floating and the sensation of being carried by a force greater then yourself.  On Water maps both physical and psychological journeys navigating the space between disaster and hope.

Pass Trough Me 
solo exhibition by Tabatha Trolli
Upstairs / Main Gallery

Tabatha Trolli’s solo exhibition, Pass Through Me, invites the viewer to inhabit a tunnel-like space as one might if shrunken and placed inside of a whale…a tomb…an underwater cave.

The space itself is a passage, momentarily transfixed by its current place in time. Connections can be made between the physical body and the sculptural object. Objects are imbued with their own unique appeal and have no shame in their boldness. The sculptures are layered, worn and seem to have lived once before, an alternate existence with different meanings. The artist is inviting her viewer to a place, vulnerable yet unafraid, to stay true to oneself. Further, she aims to provoke them to consider their own relationship between the objects and themselves.

Plausible Structures?
Scotty Hensler
Downstairs / Project Space

“A pool of ambient information encompasses us; I unconsciously and consciously filter and sample from that expanse. There is a magnetic accumulation of notions and material that impress upon me about place and person.” This new work from Scotty Hensler is that amassing of materials, both physical and in thought, that spawn from the artist’s relationships with art, art history, people, structures. The exhibition will be all new paint and sculptural work with an installation art component. The materials are wood, oil and acrylic paint, foam, nylon, plastics, found objects.

seawiid
Nat Olmo
Upstairs / Project Space

seawiid is “an installation by Nat Olmo using remnants of sludgy trash water environments to explore accumulation as adornment and attempt to discover connections between artificiality and a traditional sense of ‘real’ or ‘natural’.”

October 10
Margaret Meehan was a Texas-based artist until her recent move to Richmond, Virginia, where she now lives, makes art, and teaches at Virginia Commonwealth University. Meehan, known for her research-heavy and figure-based multimedia work, has always been interested in the body – not necessarily how it physically works or even the figure as a genre, but how bodily difference has been perceived throughout time.
For Tuesday Evenings, Meehan presents “Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde,” a talk on how her work addresses monstrosity as a kind of otherness that goes beyond dualities and instead exists in shades of gray, a slippage between the categories that society defines us by and an acknowledgement of the monster that lives within us. In this clear-eyed and nuanced consideration of the intersections of myths, monsters, and miracles, Meehan examines how we decide whom we protect and whom we should be protected from by looking at notions of gender, vintage horror, and our own blood-stained American history.

Your Private Collection Presents Impressionist, Roberta Mallard August 26

Your Private Collection Art Gallery Presents

Roberta Mallard, Impressionist

Last Saturday Gallery Night

Saturday, August 26, 5-8 pm

Roberta Mallard will be the featured artist at Your Private Collection Art Gallery as part of Granbury’s Last Saturday Gallery Night. Mallard’s works of landscapes, portraits and animals painted in oil and acrylic have often been selected for national, juried art shows.

I paint light and the color it creates,” said Mallard. “I am greatly influenced by the Impressionists.  The greatest joy of painting is seeing the look on the faces of clients when they see their portrait or have just purchased a painting and hearing the words, “I love it.””

Mallard’s work can be found in Southwest Art in the current August issue, “Women in Art” and in the upcoming September issue “National Emerging Artists.”

Galleries of Granbury

All the seven Galleries of Granbury venues are open until 8 pm with “meet the artists”, opening receptions, demonstrations, hors d’oeuvres, wine and music. A narrated “gallery” tram will be running between the gazebo in the courthouse parking lot and the surrounding galleries. You don’t want to miss this wonderful evening of art.

Come Celebrate Roberta Mallard’s Art at Your Private Collection Art Gallery—Guitar music by Granbury’s Mayor, Nin Hulett and enjoy hors d’oeuvres and wine.

The last two decades have seen a monumental shift in historic preservation both in Dallas and across the country. This is reflective of a broader renewed interest in the built environment – old and new – specifically how buildings, landscapes and places impact our lives. Twenty years ago, there was very little research on the physical and mental impact of buildings and landscapes. Today there are many more studies available on the subject, as well as a greater general interest in how our surroundings affect our bodies and minds. 
 
It has been said that historic preservation efforts are like a town’s autobiography. The decision to keep or demolish something for the future is based on the values of a particular time and place and attitude. Dallas’s citizens are increasingly interested in the decision-making process that determines what their surroundings look like and how it will affect them. The Demolition Delay ordinance as one example of the citizenry’s growing focus on the preservation decisions being made in their city. The quality and quantity of the city preservation staff has grown to a complete office, and many team members hold degrees in historic preservation related fields. Many internal changes such as increased training, education, and public outreach are happening as a result of the Downtown Preservation Solutions Committee.
 
While there is clearly an increased interest in the historic built environment from both the public and local government, the decisions that impact citizens are still largely unguided.  With no city planning department, there is a lack of vision and coordination in how the city develops and re-develops. We are working off a Preservation Plan from 1987 and our surveys are decades old. These tools need to be updated to guide future development and preservation efforts.

Sharon Serrago: Going from Realism to Abstraction; IAA Meeting May 23

Purple Valley

Guest artist at the Tuesday, May 23rd meeting of the Irving Art Association will be Sharon Serrago. Her presentation will be on going from Realism to Abstraction, a subject many artists find fascinating. In the demo she will begin with a realistic drawing of the subject and an abstract drawing, then show step by step how to move a realistic picture into an abstraction of that subject.

Doors open at 6:30 pm and the Meeting starts at 7:00 pm at the Jaycee Park Center for the Arts in Irving.  Directions. Guests are welcome.

About the Artist: 

Sharon Serrago is a local area artist, teaching weekly watercolor and acrylic classes at her studio in Richardson, TX, a suburb of Dallas). As her teaching strength lies in design and color theory, her classes always focus on strong fundamentals. Sharon’s ability to quickly spot problem areas in paintings and her adeptness at offering solutions has caught the eye of many art clubs and organizations who have subsequently invited her to present demonstrations, offer critiques of members’ works, and judge competitions.

An entrepreneur with her hand in several businesses, Sharon’s first love is her art. While she frequently paints realistically, she is most at home when painting abstracts. Her styles are as diverse as her talents, all of which goes into making her one of Dallas’ interesting artists.

Dream Juice
Lindsey Larsen
 
Dream Juice is a contemplation of things in nature, like humans and all the other physical things… but also things that aren’t physical, like an experience, maybe? I mean experience with a capital E.
Abyss
Ashley Whitt
 
Abyss explores the dichotomy between order and chaos within the universe and within the self. Photographic collages and sculptural artist books are fabricated to illustrate the physical manifestations of anxiety and depression through the deconstruction of the photographic image.
Collages are made using a combination of alternative processes; lumen prints, chemigrams, and solvent transfers. To create the images, photographic prints are cut apart and sewn back together. Geometric and organic shapes mimic the patterns and phenomenons found within the universe. Abyss considers the correlation between the inner self and outer space as well as our desires to control and make sense of life and death.

Rachel Muldez: Quarks & Quasars at the OCCC

quarksquasars

Rachel Muldez presents
Quarks & Quasars

 

January 21 – Feburary 24
Opening Reception: Saturday, Jan. 21
5:30pm – 8:00pm

The Oak Cliff Cultural Center is proud to present the works of Rachel Muldez in Quarks & Quasars. Exhibition will run formJanuary 21, 2017 – Febraury 24, 2017 at 223 W Jefferson Blvd, Dallas, TX, 75208. Reception will take pace on Saturday, January 21st, from 5:30-8pm. Exhibtion and reception are FREE and OPEN to the public.

About the Exhibit:
Rachel Muldez believes evolution is all things taking part in the changing aesthetic of the created. The further the change, the more fantastical the outcome. Through her practice, like every physical action, comes a change in the physical aesthetic of what she sees around her. Being drawn to materials with the potential of life such as seeds, sprouts,cocoons, and nests causes her to ponder about other worlds. The objects Muldez collects end up in piles in her studio and await re-examination; taking days, months, or years for Muldez to become aware of their aesthetic potential.

The natural materials Muldez uses often look otherworldly. Objects made by beings other than humans, like nests and cocoons, further impress upon her a higher level of craftsmanship which she seeks to achieve. This constant reference back to nature in her work, is due to casual nature walks both in and out of urban settings.

Dedication

The 2017 KidFilm program is dedicated to educator and Weston Woods Studios founder Mort Schindel. One of the USA Film Festival’s National Advisory Committee Members, Mort Schindel passed away at 98 years of age this past summer leaving an incredible legacy to the world of children’s literature, media, literacy and learning.  Schindel created his company Weston Woods Studios in 1953 with the sole focus of bringing children’s literature to life on screen through iconographic animation (a technique he invented), making the content more exciting and accessible, encouraging millions of young readers.  Since then, the company has produced more than 350 motion pictures and 450 recordings — always honoring Schindel’s mission that “A film should bring kids back to the book.”

 

KidFilm Guest Bios

Tom Lichtenheld doodled his way through school then worked as a sign painter, set designer, printer and art director.  After a long career in advertising he accidentally (on-purpose) switched to creating children’s books.  His work is noted for its humor, expressive characters and rich detail.  He creates books that appeal to children and adults alike, and his portfolio of over twenty books offers something for every age.   A number of his books, including Stick and Stone, created with Beth Ferry, and Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site, created with Sherri Duskey Rinker, have been New York Times Bestsellers.

Anna Kang was born in the Bronx and grew up on Long Island where she spent most of her free time reading Teen Beat magazine, Archie comics, and watching movies at the local multiplex.  She studied International Relations and Asian Studies at Tufts University and Nanzan University in Japan, then followed her heart and moved to Los Angeles, where she received an M.F.A. from USC’s School of Cinematic Arts and discovered what made her happy — telling stories.  After graduating, Anna was selected to participate in the Sundance Institute’s Screenwriters Lab and Film Independent’s Directors Lab with her first feature script, The Lost Tribe of Long Island.  All of her experiences – personal, professional, and creative – led her to write her debut picture book, You Are (Not) Small.  Being able to create it with her talented illustrator-husband, Christopher Weyant, made the journey all the more rewarding for Anna.  Since creating their first book together, the duo has gone on to create two additional books thus far: Can I Tell You A Secret? and That Is (Not) Mine.

Christopher Weyant is a native of New Jersey and product of twelve years of Catholic School.  Both experiences led to a life of humor and satire.  A cartoonist for The New Yorker, Chris’ work has been published worldwide in newspapers, magazines, books and online, and he has worked on numerous national advertising campaigns.  His cartoons are in permanent collection at The Whitney Museum of American Art and The Morgan Library & Museum in New York City.  In 2014, the Nieman Fellowship for Journalism at Harvard selected Weyant to be a Nieman Fellow, the second cartoonist to receive that honor in Nieman Foundation’s seventy-five year history.  Chris’ work has been featured on “The Today Show,” “Meet The Press,” “ABC News With Diane Sawyer” “Late Night with Seth Meyers”, CNN, MSNBC, and Fox.   He is the winner of the 2015 Theodor Seuss Geisel Award for his first illustrated children’s book, You Are (Not) Small.  Chris graduated from Gettysburg College with a B.A. in Political Science and Economics planning on a career as a lawyer.  He gave it all up for a pen and a brush, and now lives outside New York City with his wife, Anna, and their two daughters.

Beth Ferry grew up by the beach where she spent most of the day reading.  Her favorite childhood memories involve sun, salt, sand, and scribbling stories.  She adores alliteration and the magic of rhyme done right.  Her favorite word is anticipation and she loves the feeling of holding a book in her hand because she knows, through personal experience, that the book is holding her hand right back!  Holding her own book, and having that dream come true, has been a feeling beyond compare for Beth.  So far, she has written three children’s books:  Stick and Stone, Land Shark, andPirate’s Perfect Pet.  Beth currently resides in New Jersey with her husband, three children and two bulldogs.

About KidFilmÒ DISD Outreach Programs

In addition to the KidFilm public weekend, special outreach programs are presented for thousands of Dallas Independent School District students (grades K–5) and educators.  Students attend programs selected especially for them.  Many of the films presented are book‑based and designed to be curriculum-interactive including relevant topics and issues (cultural awareness and diversity, compassion and tolerance, history, math, geography, the importance of education and reading, etc.)

 

About the USA Film Festival

The Art Kids at Brookhaven College Are Crazy/Busy Gearing Up For Their ONLY Student Art Sale and Fundraiser Of The Year!

And when I say “Kids,” I mean students aged from 17-75!
Something fabulous is going on at Brookhaven College! The energy is palpable- the music is blasting in the sculpture courtyard while sparks fly from metal,
pottery wheels whirl in Clay, waxes are finely carved and cast in Jewelry, blocks are inked in Printmaking, and students stand for hours before their easels,
absorbed with color, light and shadow in Drawing and Painting.

The Particulars:
Student Art Sale and Fundraiser, hosted by the Art Club of Brookhaven College
When: Wednesday December 7, 9am-6pm.
utopia2bowl

Why You (and everybody else) Should Shop At Our Sale:
This isn’t the typical week-end craft sale/carnival being held by every church and elementary school this time of year-
“We ain’t stringin’ beads”- as one longtime metalsmith student told me. This is a sale of art and fine craft by budding artists passionate
about their work, developing their own voice, as well as experienced artists who have taken classes for years striving to refine their work.

This is an excellent opportunity for the public to buy exceptional and unusual handmade fine craft and art at very reasonable prices!
