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

Now celebrating its 47th year, the USA Film Festival is a Dallas-based, 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to the encouragement and recognition of excellence in the film and video arts.  The Festival’s year-round programs and events include KidFilm, special monthly programs and premieres, TexFest, and the USA Film Festival held each spring.  The USA Film Festival is supported in part by the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs and the Texas Commission on the Arts. More information about the Festival is available online at www.usafilmfestival.com.

Brookhaven College Student Art Sale & Fundraiser Dec 7

goblets

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

Where: On the campus of Brookhaven College, in the lobby of “S” building (Student Services building)
Featuring: handmade jewelry, ceramics, printmaking, photography,drawings, painting
How shoppers can pay: cash or check.
Free admission and plenty of free parking.

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!
utopibowl3
Who The Fundraiser Benefits:
Brookhaven’s Student Art Club- 20% of sales goes to scholarships, and to bring artists to campus for workshops/demos.
.
So Don’t Be Tardy For This Party!
The tables will be piled high with treasure. Have An Individualist to buy a gift for? Love to wear handmade jewelry or decorate your home with unique, beautiful or funky finds? Want to experience cutting-edge creativity?
I’ll be there with you, lining up, waiting for the doors to open!

Scorch and Drag | Prints and Sculpture by John Robert Craft

johnrobertcraft

OPENS June 17, 2016
OPENING RECEPTION
June 17 2016; 6-8pm
CLOSES
August 27, 2016
HOURS
Tuesday-Friday 10am-5pm; Saturday noon-5pm

http://www.flatbedpress.com Austin, TX

John Robert Craft, sculptor and printmaker, possesses an innate interest in ferrous metals, used
to create an inseparable dialogue between his two and three-dimensional work. His sculptural
work is abstract, solid and heavy, influenced by studies in geology and the metallurgy of his
choice medium: ferrous metals. Within his printmaking practice, these solid cast-iron sculptural
pieces are utilized as tools to create minimalistic abstract images that map the energy and
direction of the sculpture across the printmaking substrate, iron or wood, while documenting the
sculpture’s mass, movement, and form. They create nebulous images on paper, suggesting
both at the same time a microcosmic view resembling particle movement or a larger
macrocosmic approximation of stellar movements through space. Scorch and Drag will exhibit
several mid and large-scale sculptures alongside the monotype and relief prints they were used
to create.
Jack’s most recent project with Flatbed, the Fire Etching Suite, will also be on exhibition in it’s
entirety. This work consists of two diptychs, one tetraptych and two oversized individual prints.
The suite is a study in intaglio of the degradation of ferrous metals through the use of heat and
oxidation.
Join us for this wonderful opportunity to see John Robert Craft’s sculptures and prints exhibited
together. Scorch and Drag runs from June 17 to August 27, with an opening reception the
evening of June 17th from 6-8pm.

DAVID YARROW: “Getting Close” Wildlife Photography April 11 – 17

Kimberly Aston presents
 
DAVID YARROW: Getting Close
 
APRIL 11TH-17TH, 2016
  
IN TANDEM WITH DALLAS ARTS WEEK
 
DALLAS, TEXAS, MARCH 29,2016 — World-renowned and best selling wildlife photographer David Yarrow will make his Dallas debut with ‘Getting Close’ via a series of exhibitions hosted by Kimberly Aston at Dallas Arts Week. Starting on Monday, April 11th with a private dinner hosted at the home of Anne and Steve Stodghill, Yarrow will showcase his internationally recognized photographs at the Perot Museum, The Space on Oaklawn and the Joule Hotel.  Yarrow will be exhibiting the largest selection of his work to date.  It is an honor to have him in Dallas, thanks to Kimberly Aston. 

NOTE:
  Yarrow’s images come in two sizes and are massive in scale, printed by Bow Haus in Los Angeles, CA. Their proprietorial printing process employs technology that transcends generic digital prints by allowing for bespoke allocations. All prints are on 315gsm Hahnemühle photo rag Baryta paper and varnished after processing to give both endurance and sheen.

     Amboseli is about dust and its capture should make the picture, not be ancillary to it. This meant not only shooting into the late light but also shooting from behind the giraffe. This was at odds with a fairly standard rule of mine to be positioned ahead or at least parallel to a moving subject – but given all the other factors involved; it appeared that breaking this rule would be the most effective way to tell the story.

A descendant of the prevalent Yarrow shipbuilding dynasty, founder of his own personally funded $230m hedge-fund, Clareville Capital Partners LLP, and now the world’s best selling wildlife photographer, Yarrow is relevant and respected worldwide. David is vastly connected across the globe. His network includes close friends like Prince William and most recent ex: model and actress Elizabeth Hurley, both who can attest to David’s talent and compassion.

Since the widely popular release of his fine-art photography books Nowhere (2007) and Encounter (2013), Yarrow is anticipating the 2016 August release of his new book, Wild Encounters. The book, which will detail his photographs and the extraordinary measures taken to capture the wildlife images, will include a foreword written by Prince William, Duke of Cambridge.

 

David is committed to Tusk Trust, African preservation charity, as their affiliated photographer. Tusk, whose Royal Patron is HRH the Duke of Cambridge, recently marked its 25th anniversary and receives a percentage of proceeds from David’s print and book sales to support its 53 projects in 18 African countries. Ellen O’Connell, Executive Director of Tusk USA says, “David Yarrow is not only an extraordinarily talented photographer but an invaluable supporter and partner of Tusk.  David’s unique talents bring visibility and awareness to critical issues facing the world’s wildlife. Driven by passion and commitment to the earth’s natural resources, David is as much a conservationist as he is an artist.  David’s financial support of Tusk is extraordinary but it may be the emotional impact of David’s work that will ultimately have the greatest effect on the fate of the world’s wildlife.”

 

David Yarrow expends tremendous effort scouting and traveling to the most remote corners of the world, whether it entails enduring 30 hours of waiting on a Cape Town boat dock or -35°F weather in wintery Northeastern China, to yield stunning, seemingly impossible wildlife stills. The great lengths to which he pushes himself to photograph these images include risky strategies such as tying chickens around his neck as bait and crouching in shallow mud banks inches away from an alpha lion, all of which allow raw close encounters with some of the most dangerous animals in the wild. Yarrow’s work sharply reflects the unique detail and character of his subjects. His stills expose the delicate yet aggressively primal balance of raw nature, moving with the fluidity and gracefulness of a cinematic phrase- as if he is choreographing the subjects. Kimberly Aston, who first met David at Art Basel in Miami Beach says, “David is not just a wildlife photographer; he is a curator of fine art who creates images that illustrate authentic encounters between him and the endangered, often dangerous species of the world.”

Lion King
 
 
I wanted an angle from the ground looking up right underneath a jumping lion and this required placing the camera in a muddy stream in the hope that the lion would jump so as not to get wet. Seconds after the picture was taken the lion took my camera hostage but the image that survived the mauling conveys beauty, power and vitality.
 
 
The Circle of Life
Those 20 minutes I spent that Sunday with the herd were spectacular and it was not hard to take something good. But one image ‘The Circle of Life’ stood out and the reaction from those I quickly showed it to homed in on the image’s grace and serenity. The composition has spirituality to it and in retrospect I made good quick decisions on both camera bodies and lenses. The photograph has a very good chance of passing the test of time. The detail is very pleasing and the composition is a gift that perhaps the hours of persistence deserved.
 
 
Cry Me a River
This portrait of a majestic and dangerous lion, walking with such conspicuous alertness, was captured on a dry river bed near the border between South Africa and Zimbabwe. It is an unusual image for me in that the remote was fitted with Nikon’s flagship 58m lens rather than a wide angle. This was a good decision as it allowed a little more sense of place as well as huge clarity of detail in the lion’s face.
 
 
 
Mankind
Over a year on, I look back on that glorious evening of 28th December 2014. I did a good job, and the two days on a shocking road, followed by hours of walking in 42-degree heat and then wading through four feet of water known to house the odd Nile crocodile, were worth it to capture this moment.

ABOUT DAVID YARROW
 
David Yarrow, 50, was born in Scotland and is based in London. He was named Young Scottish Photographer of the Year at the age of 20 and in the same year shot his internationally syndicated photo of Maradona at The World Cup for Times Newspaper. Since turning his lens on the natural world, David has become widely regarded as the UK’s best selling fine-art photographer of his genre and now serves as a Nikon Ambassador.
 
David’s latest collection of images from South Sudan, worth over $1m, featured in the Holden Luntz Gallery (Palm Beach) exhibition ‘Beasts of the Earth and the Spirit of Man’ and was also on show during the Spring Masters Art Fair in New York earlier this year. His limited edition ‘Mankind’, a huge monochrome image of Dinka cattle herders, has been featured on Fox News and Ivo Niehe’s Dutch TV show, and is also part of a year-long exhibition of his most prized wildlife images at the Rotella Gallery in New York and Las Vegas. David has exhibited his work in several single man shows this year, including The Iris Gallery in Boston and Aspen, two at the Kunsthuis Gallery in Amsterdam, a one time only exhibition at the world famous Bührle Museum in Zurich and the final show of the year at Rotella Gallery in New York City.

UPCOMING EXHIBITS

Between Paris and Texas: Marie Cronin, Portraitist of the Belle Époque

February 14-June 5, 2016 

This is the first monographic exhibition of Cronin’s (1867-1951) art and will feature a focused selection of her paintings, including works shown in the salons of Paris, as well as official portraits of Texas statesmen that hang at the Texas State Capitol, such as Alfonso Steele (1817-1911), the last survivor of the Battle of San Jacinto. A Texas-raised artist, Cronin studied with Claudio Castelucho (Spanish, 1870-1927) in Paris during the first decade of the twentieth century. Following her return from Europe, Cronin would continue her artistic career back in Texas while also carrying out the exigencies of a family in the business of expanding railroad operations across the state.

Process and Innovation: Carlotta Corpron and Janet Turner
February 14-June 5, 2016

This exhibition will present the work of two pioneering artists working and teaching in Texas in the 1940s and 1950s, Carlotta Corpron (1901-1988) and Janet Turner (1914-1988). Corpron, working in photography, and Turner, working in painting and printmaking, both taught art education at Texas universities and came into their own maturity of style during the middle of the twentieth century. Process and Innovation: Carlotta Corpron and Janet Turner explores the work of both artists made during this period of consummate experimentation. This exhibition draws entirely from holdings within the Dallas area, including Bywaters Special Collections of SMU, which holds an impressive collection of art by both Turner and Corpron.

The Instigators: Celebrating 10 Years of Kettle Art reception Nov. 5

Richard_Ross_Pondering_the_Astronauts_from_a_Summers_Field

Richard_Ross_Pondering_the_Astronauts_from_a_Summers_Field

Kettle Art presents “The Instigators: Celebrating 10 Years of Kettle Art”. Please join us for the opening reception on Thursday, November 5th, 7:00pm to 10:00pm. The exhibit runs through Saturday, November 28.

Call them what you will: rabble rousers, provocateurs, radicals, or champions. The art world has always needed them, and Dallas is no exception. This now-legendary group of unrepresented artists joined forces in November of 2005 to open Kettle’s doors, while simultaneously launching careers that have made our city, and in many ways the rest of the world, take notice. Co-founder Kirk Hopper served as art consultant and financial adviser before establishing Kirk Hopper Fine Art in 2008, also located in Deep Ellum.

Conceived by artist and muralist Frank Campagna as a two-pronged concept, the gallery’s mission was to 1) offer opportunities for regional artists and patrons alike to experience art in a casual and supportive atmosphere, and 2) return the Deep Ellum neighborhood back to its artistic roots.

With this goal in mind, Kettle has proudly collaborated with organizations and arts groups across the North Texas region such as the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, American Society of Media Photographers Dallas, Art Conspiracy, Art Hash, ArtPlace America, Cykochik, D Magazine’s Big D Reads, Dallas Art Dealers Association, Dallas Association of Young Lawyers, Dallas Observer, Dallas Video Festival, Deep Ellum Arts Festival, Deep Ellum Community Association, Deep Ellum Wine Walk, END Design, Folksie/Make Shop & Studio, Instant Film Society, Lollipop Shoppe, Lone Star Wind Orchestra, Naked Girls Reading, Observe Dallas, Shag Carpet, The Sixth Floor Museum, The Urban Fabric, TunnelVisions, Wordspace Dallas, and the 45 Suicide Prevention Fund, as well as hosting performances by numerous musical acts, including the Deathray Davies, Telegraph Canyon, Unconscious Collective, Whiskey Folk Ramblers, Yells at Eels, and many more.

The Instigators are:

Sergio Garcia
Cathey Miller
Mark S. Nelson
Judith Lea Perkins
Richard Ross
Erica Felicella
Cabe Booth
Amber Campagna
Frank Campagna

Through the years, other great talents have also joined the Kettle ranks. These artists include:

Clint Scism
Corey Godfrey
George Fowler
George Wallace
Justin Clumpner
Steve & Erin Reeves
Jodi Von Rotten
Johnny Hawkins
Hilda LaFleur
Miguel Aguilar
and more.
