Reception – December 9, 7pm-10 pm


A Thing Added
Downstairs / Main Gallery

participating artists: Scott Bell, Kathleen Janvier, Adam Knoche, Kathy Lovas, Abby Sherrill, Kristina Smith

The definition of the word adjunct is: a thing added to something else.  The adjunct professors in our DFW community are diverse and studious additions to our university arts programs. This December, 500x Gallery has selected a group of artists who balance their studio time with the demands of a sometimes strenuous teaching schedule.


Squeeze Machine 
joint exhibition by Molly Valentine Dierks and Yuni Lee
Upstairs / Project Space

Squeeze Machine brings together the work of Molly Valentine Dierks and Yuni Lee in a 2 person show that explores the artists’ shared interest in the links between humanity and nature. Drawing on the disciplines of Ikebana, Japanese woodblock prints, and traditional Korean artwork, the large-scale paintings and installation borrow from the bright color-scapes and simulacrae of post-industrial culture, creating foreign landscapes from new and recycled materials and forms. Translating elements both familiar and strange, Squeeze Machine is inspired by machinery and ecology, questioning how technology and nature converse in the human void of longing and intimacy.

Box 13 –
