Non Pixelated: The Persistence of Painting in the Digital Age
July 2-30, 2016
Reception with the Artists: Saturday, July 2, 2016 (7-9 PM)
Featuring the work of eighteen DFW painters, the Non Pixelated exhibition explores the unceasing relevance of the traditional medium of painting in the context of our contemporary digital age. The exhibition includes the work of artists who, for the most part, have chosen not to shift completely from their use of analogue painting techniques to the more widely accessible mass digital media.
Unlike other exhibitions where the art pieces adhere to a certain theme or stylistic direction, the Non Pixelated show focuses mainly on presenting a collection of highly imaginative artwork that serves as irrefutable evidence that painting remains an enduring, vibrant, and ever-present form of art in a world that seems to be inundated and enthralled by digital imagery. The art pieces in this exhibition make a determined and resounding statement that the contribution of painting to the world of art continues to be, and will continue to be for a long time to come, of utmost prominence.
Non Pixelated includes paintings by Rita Barnard, Sarah Barnett, Awadh Baryoum, Bernard Bortnick, S. Chuck McCarter, Justin Clumpner, Ray-Mel Cornelius, Steve Danner, Jacque Forsher, Gale Gibbs, Duke Horn, Karen Jacobi, Darrell Madis, Alexa Mason, Julia McLain, Ruben Miranda, Monica Moody, and Madelyn Sneed.
The exhibition was curated by Enrique Fernández Cervantes.

Cecilia Thurman is a painter and a printmaker who lives in Dallas, near White Rock Lake. The acrylic on paper paintings featured in the Natural Impressions exhibition are the artist’s most recent body of work. The new series refers to Cecilia’s tremendous and abiding love of nature, which is unquestionably a constant theme that can be seen in many of her prints and paintings. The goal of the imagery, according to the artist, is to evoke the feeling of elements found in nature, and to express the poetry and mystery of the land that we all share.
