“Dance Partners” –Group Sculpture Exhibition


ARTISTS: Rachael Anderson, Minna Jain, Linda Gossett, Abby Bagby

DATE: July 26 – Aug 14, 2016, Opening Reception July 30, 6-9pm

LOCATION: 2803 Taylor St, Dallas, TX, 75226


Dance Partners is a collaborative exhibition of wearable sculptures created by artists Abby Bagby, Minna Jain, Linda Gossett, and Rachael Anderson. The vision for the show is to bring together four artists with very different styles yet finding rhythmic congruity in their love for the unlikely, humorous invention, obsessive touch, and the push pull dynamics of repulsion/attraction. All four artists engage nostalgia and handy-craft aesthetics in their work, engaging “women’s work” with a combination of sincere curiosity and crass social commentary. These pieces break the static gallery with bouncing light, tactile synesthesia, noise, fluttering, and clatter. This show is not shy; it boldly gyrates to the pulse of its own drummer and provokes ecstatic physical reactions.



Umbrella is an art gallery that exists within the cultural center of Life in Deep Ellum, an organization built on the idea that vibrant community exists where individuality is celebrated, and all are welcome. It is a space for exploration, a place to stretch and to grow for both established and emerging artists. Due to its non-commercial status, Umbrella opens the door for artists to try something new, to push their artistic limits, and to exhibit this experimental spirit freely. Its unique functionality, size, and shape offer an opportunity to produce bodies of work that both stand out from and harmonize with the gallery space itself.
