Results: Works from the UD Iron Pour
April 12-22, 2018
Reception, April 18 | 5-7 p.m. with Introduction 5:45 p.m.
Thompson Loggia, Art History Building

In early March, an iron pour was held at on campus. With the help of the Texas Atomic Iron Pour Commission, 500 pounds of cast iron was broken and melted in an exciting fiery display. The event brought together artists, faculty, students, and spectators. All were there to watch the 2,500 degrees of molten iron pour from a cupola, or specifically designed furnace and into student and faculty made molds.

These molds were then cooled and broken open to reveal the results! Please join us to see the art that resulted from this fantastic project.

The UD Iron Pour was made possible with support from the Novinski Endowment, which generously supports programming in the arts.

Interstices | Kelly O’Briant
April 12-22, 2018
Reception, April 18 | 5-7 p.m. with artist talk 5:15 p.m.
Upper Gallery, Painting/Printmaking Gallery

Interstices is a unique glimpse into the many ways technology, science, and collaborative projects inform Kelly O’Briant’s art practice. O’Briant presents a series of interconnected small works created in gaps of time found between continuous projects and large exhibitions.

O’Briant is working with wildlife biologists and technicians in West Virginia and Virginia by using 3D printing to create decoys of Loggerhead Shrike birds for field research, she has been collaborating with ceramists in China, New York, and Texas to build an improved glaze test machine, and, closer to home, O’Briant is assisting The Cistercian Abbey Our Lady of Dallas to carry out a restoration project, on a colonial period crucifix, with artisans in Missouri.

The word “interstice” comes from the Latin “interstitium” which was derived from “inter” meaning “between” + “sistere” meaning “to stand” = to stand between. O’Briant demonstrates how the between spaces of art, research, and work can provide rich inspiration and opportunities for new works.

Please join us for the reception and hear more from Kelly O’Briant during her artist talk at 5:15 p.m., Wednesday, April 18.

Simeen Farhat: ‘Blood Shot is Blood Loved’ opens April 1st at Cris Worley

Farhat-Simeen-Blood-detail PR-Farhat-Blood-Shot-is-Blood-Loved

Exhibition Title: Simeen Farhat: ‘Blood Shot is Blood Loved’
Exhibition Dates: April 1, 2017 — May 6, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, April 1st from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Cris Worley Fine Arts, Dallas TX crisworley.com

flyer: PR-Farhat-Blood-Shot-is-Blood-Loved
Cris Worley Fine Arts is proud to present Blood Shot is Blood Loved, our second solo exhibition with Simeen
Farhat, opening with an artist’s reception on Saturday, April 1st, from 5 to 8 p.m. Blood Shot is Blood Loved will include a large-scale installation along with various multi-dimensional wall reliefs. The exhibition will be on view through May 6, 2017. In her work, Farhat often uses cast resin and acrylic to make intimately poetic sculptures that engage participants in the act of deciphering between material form and shadow, much like the process of deriving meaning from sensory perception; a visual analogue to the brutally nuanced struggle of human communication.

Inspiration for Blood Shot is Blood Loved began with Farhat’s poetic meditations on the dual nature of one of the most vital elements in the natural world—blood. As the artist writes, “I leave my traces many times. I can be either hot or cold. People both love and hate me—I scare them off; but they need me, too. My name is Blood.” In this installation, Farhat re-creates the moment a large-scale drop of blood hits ground, capturing the reverberating effects released by a passionate burst of energy. The ardent drop of blood is assembled from abstracted epigraphic forms, a signature of Farhat’s body of work. The direct metaphor with the liquid materiality of the human body evokes a realm of ideas inhabited by her previous works: A Teardrop in Disperse (2015), A Bubble Bursts (2015), and A Red Drop of Blood (2015). By rendering one example of the un-deniability of the human body, Blood Shot is Blood Loved quietly implicates the dichotomy between purity of life, and abject realities of violence that suppress human volition, globally. Mimicking the quality of blood as a provocative substance, the installation invites the viewer to actively explore the blood droplet as it spills into the gallery space.

Simeen Farhat was born in Karachi, Pakistan. She has lived and worked in the U.S. since 1992, receiving her BFA from Arizona State University, and her MFA from Texas Christian University. Her work has been exhibited globally in Austria, France, Germany, India, Singapore, Taiwan, the UK, at the National Art Gallery in Pakistan, and the Sharjah Museum of Modern Art, among others. Farhat participated in the 2009 Texas Biennial; In 2012 she was an Artist in Residence at the ORYX Foundation in Switzerland; and in 2015 she was invited to participate in an exhibition at the 56th Venice Biennale, In the Eye of the Thunderstorm: Effervescent Practices from the Arab World. Farhat’s work is represented in the Crown Prince of UAE’s Abu Dhabi Palace Collection, The U.S. Consulate in Jeddah, The Four Seasons Hotel in Dubai, and the Peninsula Hotel in Paris.

Dam Lam’s Coquette opens at Fort Works Art


Dan Lam’s MONUMENTAL Solo Exhibition 

opens August 2, 2016 at Fort Works Art!  



For more about the artist, see http://www.fortworksart.com/#/dan-lam/

FORT WORKS ART is pleased to announce “Coquette”, artist, Dan Lam’s first major exhibition. This exhibit will run from August 2, 2016 – September 17, 2016 with an opening reception, Friday, August 6 from 6-11:00 p.m. “Coquette” will be Lam’s first solo exhibition of this magnitude, and will feature all new large-scale installation work. Coupled with this, will be multiple “drippy” sculptures that she has become known for, that she will position in various “environments” throughout the gallery.

In today’s visual climate, it is extraordinarily rare to see an image that is unique. Even more so, for something to make you stop and stare. Dan Lam’s work does just that. Her use of color and vibrancy attracts the eye, but it is the ambiguous, multi-textural qualities that elicit powerful reactions from the viewer. Some are turned off, others delighted by these “drippy things.” This extreme contrast is one of the things that makes her work so powerful. “What are these creature-like forms? How are they made? What are they? Can I touch it?” Dan Lam’s work is quite obviously provocative.

Lam has tirelessly been working at Fort Works Art, in their first residency at their new space, preparing for this monumental show. Lam’s work and style are truly just beginning to evolve and although the objects she creates are tricky to identify, they are definitely impossible to forget. Please join us for this powerhouse exhibition that will run for 7 weeks at Fort Works Art’s new brick-and-mortar gallery in Fort Worth, TX.

Dan Lam was born in the Philippines to a Vietnamese family who relocated to Texas when she was a child. She currently resides in Dallas, TX where she works primarily alone in her studio. Lam received her B.F.A. in 2010 from the University of North Texas and later completed a Masters of Fine Arts degree at Arizona State University. She has been published in New American Paintings twice and featured on the Insider. As well as her representation by Fort Works Art, Lam’s work can be seen throughout the United Sates at other premier galleries.

2015 winner: Paint the Town by Stuart Hausmann



Winning work displayed on art wall in Dallas Arts District for one year, no entry fees 

DALLAS – Professional artists across Texas are invited to enter A Year on the Plaza Art Competition by Thursday, Aug. 25 at 3:00 p.m. for an exceptional exhibition opportunity for the winning artist.

Presented by The Catholic Foundation, the unique competition is accepting original work, searching for a piece of art to adorn a 28-foot-long by 9-foot-wide public art wall in the Dallas Arts District for one year. Submissions must measure 28 inches by 9 and 2/3 inches, and the winning work will be digitally enlarged to cover the wall. The winning artist receives a $2,500 stipend and honorable mentions receive $250 each.

“A Year on the Plaza Art Competition presents a unique opportunity for talented individuals in Texas to express themselves artistically and showcase their work in the Dallas Arts District,” said J. Matthew Kramer, president and CEO of The Catholic Foundation.

Submissions must be appropriate for the location of the Plaza on the Cathedral grounds but do not require a religious theme. There are no entry fees. The Request for Proposal is available at catholicfoundation.com.

Once the winning piece is selected by a panel of highly respected members of the local arts community, it will be unveiled during a public dedication ceremony in October 2016.

“Words can’t describe how exciting this is. If you are thinking about entering, go for it! What do you have to lose? As long as you enjoy art, then it’s worth it,” said 2015 winning artist Stuart Hausmann.

Lynne Harlow: Hey Sunshine at Liliana Bloch

Lynne Harlow

The Liliana Bloch Gallery is pleased to announce new exhibition by Lynne Harlow. The show, entitled Hey Sunshine, will open Saturday, April 2nd and will run through May 7th, 2016. The gallery will host a reception with the artist on Saturday, April 16 from 7 to 9:30 p.m.

Liliana Bloch Gallery
2271 Monitor St, Dallas, Texas 75226

Harlow’s works in Hey Sunshine continue her reductive exploration of light, color and material, placing added emphasis on the behavior of light in relation to color and space. The exhibition includes a combination of fine art and commercial materials that were employed for their inherent physical characteristics: the expansive glow of fluorescent Plexiglas, the subtle movement of vinyl curtain, the delicate translucency of sheer fabric. Theyare arranged in seemingly austere formal combinations, but each piece surpasses the formal to generate visual experiences that extend beyond the works themselves and into their surrounding space.

Lynne Harlow has exhibited her work nationally and internationally for the past 15 years, including in the United States, Mexico, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan. Her work was recently included in the 2013 deCordova Biennial at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, MA. Her additional museum exhibitions include MoMA PS1 (New York, NY); Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art (Ithaca, NY); Brattleboro Museum and Art Center (Brattleboro, VT); and Instituto de Artes Gráficas de Oaxaca (Oaxaca, Mexico).


Harlow has received awards from the Chinati Foundation, Rhode Island Foundation, and BAU Institute, and her work has been reviewed in publications, such as Artforum, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Providence Journal, and Artnet Magazine, among others. Harlow’s work is included in public collections, such as The Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Public Library, and Hunter College (all New York, NY); RISD Museum (Providence, RI); and The Philips Collection (Washington, DC). Harlow holds an MFA from Hunter College and a BA from Framingham State College. She lives and works in Providence, Rhode Island.
