In 2007, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth hosted Ron Mueck, featuring the artist’s figures that are extraordinarily realistic, except in scale – they are always depicted much smaller or larger than life. The exhibition broke attendance records for the Museum as Mueck’s stunning works became a must-see for visitors from across the region. Now a decade later, Ron Mueck returns to the Modern for a special project showcasing six major works created between 2008 and 2018, including two sculptures making their North American debut.

Spanning painting, sculpture, collage, and installation, Kamrooz Aram’s work investigates the complex relationship between Western modernism and classical non-Western art. By highlighting their formal connections, he reveals the typically downplayed role that non-Western art and design have had in the development of modernism and its drive toward abstraction. Challenging the traditionally Euro-centric narrative established by art history, Aram’s work sets forth to disrupt this perceived hierarchy by merging and equalizing Western and non-Western forms. The artist will present all new work for this exhibition.

Known for his collaborations with pop icon Kanye West and fashion house Louis Vuitton, and for vibrant anime-inspired characters, Japanese artist Takashi Murakami blurs the boundaries between high and low culture, ancient and modern, East and West. Organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, this major retrospective features 50 paintings that span three decades of Murakami’s career, from the artist’s earliest mature works to his recent, monumentally scaled paintings.
The exhibition shows how Murakami’s art is rooted in traditions of Japanese painting and folklore, and highlights the artist’s careful attention to craft and materials. It also showcases his astute eye for the contemporary influences of globalization, media culture, and the continued threats of nuclear power.

The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth presents a major survey of works by Laurie Simmons, organized by Andrea Karnes, senior curator, with full support of the artist. This exhibition will showcase the artist’s photographs spanning the last four decades, from 1976 to the present, a small selection of sculpture, and two films.
Simmons’s career-long exploration of archetypal gender roles, especially women in domestic settings, is the primary subject of this exhibition and is a topic as poignant today as it was in the late 1970s, when she began to develop her mature style by using props and dolls as stand-ins for people and places.

After the holidays the gallery will begin the long process of closing. Currently many artists are offering work for discounts ranging from 20-50% through December. January will be the month of closing and I will have fixtures and some art of my own at a discount as well. We will lock the doors Jan. 15.
We’ve had a two and a half year run in Marshall that was successful on many levels. However, I am transitioning to produce events, consulting work, and lessons from my studio through Gingko Art Productions. We may not have a store front, but there will always be art in my life.
The gallery is located at 212 N. Washington Ave. in Marshall, TX.
So, come see Wonderland of Lights in Marshall TX, shop and dine in this historic town, ice skating, and numerous other fun activities….then come see Gingko Leaf Gallery where Art is for the Imagination!

The Chinati Foundation and MASS MoCA are two acclaimed centers for art that have repurposed abandoned spaces to create innovative and internationally recognized centers for the display of art.
The Forum’s 2017 Design Symposium will present the directors of these two centers in compelling conversation as they each overview their organization, including how the site was repurposed as a center for the display of art, often at a scale and scope not possible in more conventional settings. Ms. Moore and Mr. Thompson will highlight some of the iconic art on display at their centers.
Ms. Moore will also overview the new master plan for Chinati, and Mr. Thompson will highlight the major MASS MoCA campus expansion that was recently completed. The symposium will conclude with a moderated conversation and audience questions.

Having just celebrated my first anniversary at the Dallas Museum of Art, I am excited about the many successes that we have achieved together, and by how much we continue to learn about the ways to best serve the community. It continues to be a great honor for me to lead this institution and live in this remarkable city, and I want to thank you for your participation in and support of our many exhibitions and programs over the past year.
As we build on these successes and look forward, Museum leadership and staff are carefully examining how to continue the DMA’s achievements in cultivating connections with its existing audiences, and to make the DMA a welcoming place for our entire community. We are also reaffirming our commitment to making the DMA a 21st-century museum in every way.
As an initial step toward these goals, we have developed a renewed mission and vision for the Museum, which will serve as our guide as we create new initiatives and programs and look to the DMA’s future:
The Dallas Museum of Art is a space of wonder and discovery where art comes alive.
The DMA will:
We are pleased to share this new mission with you, our visitors, supporters, and community. I hope that you find it compelling and will enjoy many visits to the DMA in the coming year as we embark on this new path. I also hope that by sharing in our excitement, you will continue your support of the Museum, and if you are not yet a DMA Member, that you will consider joining.

The City of Dallas, through its Office of Cultural Affairs (OCA), is embarking on a year-long process to create the Dallas Cultural Plan—the first since 2002—which will analyze the city’s cultural priorities, determine how Dallas residents experience the arts and culture in their daily lives, and strategically guide how the City supports these activities throughout Dallas.
Dallas already has an amazing arts scene and community – it has grown tremendously with something to do, see, and experience artistically every day. Now, let’s keep arts and culture growing across the city.
Join us at any one of our four kickoff events being held across the city. During these public conversations, in a variety of activities, you will learn about the Dallas Cultural Plan process and share your thoughts, hopes and dreams for Dallas’ cultural future.

We have found the perfect spot for us with a landlord who not only loves artists, but isn’t frightened off by tenants who work over open flames daily, run kilns regularly beyond 2000 degrees, and hammer noisily day and night! In fact, Mr. Harkinson, our landlord, is partnering with us in the cost of building out our new space.
We’re excited about our new home!
We are in the Midcourt Commons on Midway, just north of Beltline Road. That’s less than 2 miles from both of our former Village on the Parkway and Proton locations.
Our new space is in a beautiful red brick building in an attractive, well-kept office park with great security. It is one of four buildings situated in a large rectangular formation that gives the complex a campus feel. We have an abundance of parking and our space is easily accessible from major highways.
I want to thank you for your patience and continued support during our short tenure at Valley View. While we are glad that we were able to stay open for you in temporary quarters, we simply can’t wait to get back to offering all of the classes you know and love, plus a few surprises. All of the departments will be offering the full range of classes and techniques that were offered at our previous location. One thing that we are very excited about is getting our kiln yard back so we can try out our brand new gas kiln and a new salt kiln we will be building. We know how much you clay peeps love your cone 10 firings.
When we’ll move
The Board and department heads are still working tirelessly to make sure our space is ready for us. We are completing the finish-out requirements for the new location to make it as functional and safe as possible while being mindful of budget and build out time. Given our unusual needs, we expect the build-out to be complete in early September, with the move occurring shortly thereafter.
We’ll need your help
Finally, if you’ve read this far, please allow me to take an additional moment of your time to thank the Relocation Committee and the Board for the gazillions of hours they’ve spent viewing sites, working on space planning, and ploughing through numbers for countless location possibilities. We have looked at almost every viable spot within a 15 mile radius over the last two and a half years and built space plans and financial models for about half of them. You all have my, and the entire Guild’s, appreciation for your dedication and hard work which has resulted in us finding this terrific new permanent home.
Watch for regular updates in our monthly newsletter, updates on our site, and for special email updates from me from time to time. We plan to have opportunities to tour the new location and meetings to answer questions. There are opportunities for you to be involved throughout the process.

The goal for this project is to create a creative platform for community engagement focusing on themes about suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention. The finished artwork will serve as a memorial to the thousands of individuals in our community who have died by suicide. The deadline for this is 3/17/2017.

Energetically Supporting the Arts for Ten Years
It’s June 2007 and Home by Design Magazine announces “..a new exciting art gallery, featuring local and international artists, now calls Granbury home”. The gallery opened in an 80-year-old house transformed into five rooms of unique, original artworks called Your Private Collection Art Gallery. One great feature of the location was a New Orleans style courtyard garden, which was a great gathering spot for art events and wine tastings.
Stacey Watkins, co-owner and one of the featured artists, was the primary reason for opening the gallery. Stacey had invented a new medium using her knowledge of science along with resin, metals, fused glass and other materials to create works of glow-in-the-dark fantasy. The gallery was a way to introduce this unique art.
According to the other owner, Linda Watkins, “The gallery was a way to introduce Stacey’s unique art. Your Private Collection was also founded on other principles—original art by awarded artists located within a 60 mile radius and displaying a large variety of mediums since art preference is different for each individual. This allows the gallery to work one-on-one with the artists to fill any needs a client might have.”
After one year, the gallery moved from one block off Granbury’s Historical Square to its current location at 106 N. Houston on the square. The three room gallery now represents over 50 artists and has been stated as “a must see” by Southern Living Magazine.
What makes this gallery flourish at a time when many galleries are closing? It is Your Private Collection Art Gallery’s historical location in a top-destination, small town; its renown anchor artists including Soon Y Warren, Sharon Markwardt, Bob Cook, Stacey Watkins, Aaron Thane Tate and Randy Meador and frequent introduction of new artists and art. It is events, like monthly Last Saturday Gallery Nights, which combine art with fun and personal relationships between the artists, clients and guests.
The goal of the gallery is to continue helping clients to build and enjoy their own private collection. A visit to the gallery, its website, www.yourprivatecollection.com , or its Facebook page, shows the results of ten years of energetically supporting the arts.
