Valerie Hanks A Place for Us
Main Gallery – Downstairs
Valerie Hanks’ solo exhibition, A Place for Us, features new drawings & sculptures informed by the complex ideas surrounding place/space. Through a reliance on drawing & sculpture, Valerie links her personal experiences of longing for various things such as love, truth and understanding with historical, mythical and contemporary archetypes of feminine longings found in literature, film and life. Continuing to investigate the complexities of being human, Valerie’s new work reflects upon memories of home & the sensation of discovering a place where something can flourish.

“everything that was and everything that could be”
Members Space – Downstairs
“everything that was and everything that could be,” brings together artists Sheryl Anaya and Dannie Liebergot for a fundraising exhibition in preparation of a three-month residency in Ólafsfjörður, Iceland during Winter 2018-2019. Through loss, desire, endurance, and anticipation of isolation in darkness, each artist investigates what has taken place and responds to what could be through a collaborative installation. Drawing from personal experiences and navigating the unknown landscape through photography and sculpture, they examine ideas of dependency, intimacy, and symbiotic relationships between the past, present, and future.

Instagrammar is an exhibition of artists who have created photographic works inspired by and utilizing the Instagram social media application. Thinking beyond the standard displays of birthdays, family photos and selfies, these works were created to explore the unique possibilities that Instagram could offer as a content delivery system for creative expression. Instagrammar, curated by Chris Ireland, opens this November at 500X Gallery in Dallas, TX and includes works by Derrick Burbul, Arthur Fields, Evan Maloney, and Jessica Wohl.

Chunk is a project space exhibition featuring a series of new paintings and sculptural paintings by Scott Bell and Elise Thompson. The term “chunk” can refer to “a piece of something” to consume, such as cake, or a section of information built from several smaller elements. These artists inquire about notions of indulgence and desire through painting at levels both commercial and personal.
