Milan Gallery closing in Sundance Square March 31

Good evening Facebook friends! Seems like a rainy afternoon is an appropriate time to announce that AFTER 25 YEARS, this Saturday, March 31 will be our last day in Sundance Square.
Some of you may know we have been looking to relocate to Main Street in Grapevine, but unfortunately we have not been able to secure a location there yet (but are working on it) and our Sundance Square lease is ending. We will be open through Thursday, and will be moving remaining pieces into storage on Friday and Saturday. If you’ve been watching a particular piece of art, but haven’t made the purchase, now would be a great time to see what kind of a deal we can make you. The less inventory we have to move, the better.

We can’t say thank you enough for the support and friendship you have showed us over the years! Clients, artists, new friends and old friends that have known us since the beginning – sharing many shows, special events and personal milestones with our family and staff has given us endless memories to take with us.
We will still be able to get your artwork from Thomas Arvid, Bob Callender, Gabe Leonard and others – just give us a call.
Please stay tuned for our next chapter!

Closing Gingko Leaf Gallery

Gingko Leaf Gallery will close soon. But Christmas shopping is going strong!

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!

Plano Art Association closing its gallery facility


Update regarding
Plano Art Association
Gallery Facility

As many of you know, PAA has discontinued occupancy
of it’s gallery space at EastSide Village in the
Arts District in Downtown Plano.

Circumstances related to a major increase in the lease
renewal rate made it impossible for the association to afford
continued  occupancy. Every attempt was made to negotiate a responsible path forward to retain the space, but to no avail.

Going forward, the association will certainly continue
to inspire and encourage its member artists and achieve
the mission of the organization:

“The Plano Art Association is dedicated to
encouraging the visual arts development of the
membership, and inspiring awareness of the visual arts
by sharing the joy, passion and beauty
within and beyond our Plano community.”

New venues are being explored for regular member meetings
and upcoming scheduled exhibits. We will keep everyone
informed as the options and opportunities are identified.

Although the gallery has been a milestone event in the
history of the Plano Art Association, the organization
has thrived for more than four decades and it will
certainly do so for decades to come. The closing of the
gallery comes very close to the end of term of our
current excellent leadership. We all look
forward to choosing a new executive team
that can build on the strong
accomplishments of the last few years.
Soheyla Rashidyan
President, Plano Art Association

Your Private Collection Art Gallery Anniversary & History


1YPCtenhistoryA Little History About Your Private Collection Art Gallery

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, , or its Facebook page, shows the results of ten years of energetically supporting the arts.

CADD Announces CADD FUNd Winner 2015


Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas
 Announce Winner for the 2015
CADD FUNd Competition

The 2015 CADD FUNd was awarded on October 18 to Rachel Rushing for her soon to be realized project- Sunset Art Studios: An Oak Cliff artist run studio and exhibition space.
Named for the former Sunset Streetcar Line, Sunset Art Studios will be a culturally invested art space. A group of local artists will develop their work while providing the surrounding community opportunities to directly engage in the process of art.


SUNSET ART STUDIOS – An Oak Cliff artist-run studio and exhibition space

The winnings of CADD FUNd ($4000) will provide some of the general operating expenses, including rent and utilities for one year, and supplies for community-activating projects that will bring members of the surrounding neighborhoods together to participate in our individual practices.

OPEN STUDIOS will be an accessible way for artists to share their work in an energetic format while giving the public access to the sometimes mysterious process of art-making. This setting will create an atmosphere of openness and cultural exchange that will welcome the public to directly engage with art.

STUDIO COLLABORATIONS will combine artists and invited guests to work together on projects – taking part in their studio practices. The focus of these interactions will be sharing ideas, backgrounds, and processes. Collaborations will result in the production of a monthly zine to share documentation of artist-community interactions.

ART HAUNT will be an immersive art experience to take place the month of October 2016. Art Haunt will be created by bringing historical artworks known for their surreal and unsettling qualities into three-dimensional form within the Studios. The 2016 Art Haunt will delve into all things subconscious and whimsical through the recreation of iconic works by Salvador Dalí.

Each of these projects highlights the goal of Sunset Studios, to create meaningful interactions between the public and passionate, approachable artists.

About the Winner

rachaelrushingCommunity-based experiences like the idea for Sunset Art Studios inform Rachel Rushing’s personal work – focusing on interconnectivity, photographic materiality, and non-traditional photographic installations. Working in video projection, photographic installation, and sculptural books, she is continually aware of the experience of looking as a connective thread between herself and the viewer. Her specific interest in installation work directly connects with the goals for Sunset Art Studios – to work with local artists to create open and encouraging public-art experiences.The impetus for Sunset Art Studios stems from her five years of experience with Oil and Cotton, an Oak Cliff art supply store, community art school, and hive for creative minds. Through Oil and Cotton she works with the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, creating monthly activities that integrate arts and sciences, and with the Latino Cultural Center, teaching photography and optics to local high school students.

Rachel Rushing was born in Natchitoches, Louisiana and attended Louisiana Tech University where she received a BFA in Photography, before moving to Dallas, TX where she received an MFA in Studio Art from the University of North Texas. She is currently an Instructor of Introductory and Intermediate Photography at Mountain View College. She is also the Arts Coordinator for Oak Cliff Earth Day, a member of alt8, a photography collective, and co-host and producer of the Art Funk podcast. She previously taught Advanced Photography at the University of North Texas.

Bob Malenfant and his staff are remodeling a portion of their 16,000 square foot facility to make us a fabulous new 2,300 square foot art glass gallery space.
We plan to complete our move in one week and will be up and running in the new gallery by the 1st of November.
Lot’s of ornaments and other goodies are on their way to arrive in plenty of time for your holiday gift buying!

New Fund for Acquiring Art Created by Women at the Nasher

Work by Phyllida Barlow

Work by Phyllida Barlow

Nasher Sculpture Center Announces Gift from The Kaleta A. Doolin Foundation Establishing New Acquisitions Fund for Art Created by Women


Fund will provide initial $750,000 to the Nasher Sculpture Center for purchasing work by women artists; important work by Phyllida Barlow to be first acquisition

DALLAS, Texas (August 10, 2015) – Nasher Sculpture Center announces the formation of a new fund for the acquisition of work by women artists: the Kaleta A. Doolin Acquisitions Fund for Women Artists. Established with the generous seed gift from the foundation named for author, artist, and arts patron Kaleta A. Doolin, the fund will provide an initial $750,000 toward the purchasing of work by women artists, helping substantially grow both the Nasher Sculpture Center’s collection of work by women artists and, with a keen focus on living artists, its contemporary art holdings.

“It is the Nasher Sculpture Center’s great fortune to be granted this generous acquisitions gift, and we could not be more grateful to Ms. Doolin or excited about the possibilities this gift affords,” says Director Jeremy Strick. “To be able to expand and enrich the Collection’s holdings of work made by women artists is of paramount importance, helping round out the permanent collection and highlight the tremendous contributions that women have made, and continue to make, to sculpture.”

The first work to be purchased with the fund will be by the British artist Phyllida Barlow, whose exhibition ‘tryst’ opened at the Nasher in May and runs until August 30, 2015. The acquired work, called untitled:hangingmonument2015, features a large, wrapped, tubular form that hangs horizontally from a tall steel structure.  Held aloft by a black rigging strap, the long, heavy column is rendered weightless. For Barlow, the horizontal form in the piece stems from an experience in Texas in 2003 during an artist residency with University of Texas at Dallas when she and her husband, on a drive through the oil fields, witnessed an enormous, amorphous form being extracted from the ground, dripping with oil and muck. Like the other works featured in ‘tryst,’ Barlow made untitled:hangingmonument2015 specifically for the exhibition at the Nasher.

“To begin with the purchase of a work by Phyllida Barlow—an artist at the height of her career, of great influence to younger generations of artists, and with deep ties to the Nasher—is very meaningful for the museum,” continues Mr. Strick. “We look forward to other such tremendous additions to the Nasher Collection that can now be made thanks to this focused and important fund.”

Works acquired through the Kaleta A. Doolin Acquisitions Fund for Women Artists will augment the Nasher Collection’s important sculptures by women artists, including Magdalena Abakanowicz, Nancy Grossman, Barbara Hepworth, and Beverly Pepper.

To learn more about the Kaleta A. Doolin Acquisitions Fund for Women Artists, and for information on how to make a charitable contribution to it, please contact Martha Hess, Director of Development, at +1 214.242.5153 or

Amazon joins the online art gallery biz


AMAZON ART has just been announced by Amazon. It’s still in beta, but you can now order original art online. For the official press release, click here.

Amazon describes AMAZON ART ( as “a marketplace that gives customers direct access to more than 40,000 works of fine art from over 150 galleries and dealers. At launch, Amazon Art will showcase artworks from more than 4,500 artists. The store is one of the largest online collections of original and limited edition artwork for purchase directly from galleries and dealers. The new store features easy-to-use discovery tools to help open the art world to customers and offers detailed information about the works of art. Customers can explore fine art from galleries of all sizes, including Paddle8 in New York, Holden Luntz in Palm Beach, The McLoughlin Gallery inSan Francisco, Modernbook in San Francisco and Catherine Person Gallery in Seattle.”

The viewing interface is quite flexible: Besides searching on artist or keywords, you can refine results by media, subject (abstract, figures, etc.), style, price range, size, orientation (portrait etc.), color and even seller. Some outstanding omissions: sculpture, installations, glass, and mosaic. The usual Amazon “sorts” are available for browsing: price high to low, customer reviews, etc. Or you can browse the “featured” works or galleries.  If you wish to be notified of new works, Amazon offers a fine art mailing list.

The Amazon name is a big advantage, but will it put a dent in online art sales from eBay, Etsy, ArtSpace and other established art marketers? Much of the sales through those outlets are from artists not promoted by galleries, so perhaps not. The fact that some art galleries are now selling their inventory through Amazon gives hope to both established and struggling galleries, as well as a wider market for their artists. It also provides convenience to art lovers to have so much quality inventory in one place.

So far, selling on Amazon is not an option for individual artists, but one can hope. At this point the artist who wishes to sell through Amazon must meet the standards of a participating gallery to be included.
