Closing Reception for Lara Lenhoff May 31- Life Walk Fundraiser

dyslexic stoplight

In South Africa, 18.5% of the adult population has HIV or AIDS. In 2016, an art group I was part of raised a substantial amount for Life Walk to help the community in Dallas afflicted with this virus.

On May 31 at 6 PM-9PM, the closing reception for this Solo Show will be taking place at Artspace at Metropolitan Press. Live music by Lizbet Kloot Palmer of the Last City starts at 7. If you claim to be a supporter of the arts in this city, don’t miss the 25 paintings created. 20% of proceeds are going to Life Walk.

Art Exhibit and Reception: Capturing the Dream | Irma Ward

finley_irma-ward

Capturing the Dream | Irma Ward

Reception:
Friday, January 27
6:00 to 8:00 pm

Ward begins with a sketch that can be contrived as a recognizable scene or accessible shapes, then transforms the surface, layer after layer, until the painting is complete. Ward shares a favorite quote from Marc Chagall speaking about the meaning of ‘abstract,’ “…something which comes to life spontaneously through a gamut of contracts….and pervades both the picture and the eye of the spectator with conceptions of new and unfamiliar elements.” With Wards paintings, too the final image may have no visible connection with the initial sketch, but will inspire the viewer to find “new and unfamiliar elements.

“Capturing the Dream, paintings by Irma Ward” will be on view from January 3 to February 27 at Elm Street Studio in Keller, Texas. Please join us for a complimentary reception and meet the artist on Friday, January 27th from 6 to 8pm. To see more of Wards’ work and for details, please visit www.ElmStreetStudioKeller.com.

IrmaWard.capture2jpg

In addition to her abstract pieces, Ward is sharing with us a portion of a wonderful series she has created called “Diary of Susie Swimmer.” Ward explored a 30 day challenge to create a new painting every day for a month. For continuity, Ward designed still life paintings and included the same ceramic figurine – Susie Swimmer in each of the 30 paintings. Stop by to see some of these whimsical painting, and read the story associated with each.

A portion of all art sale proceeds will benefit the Disabled American Veterans.

Gallery Hours: Tuesday to Friday from 1 to 5pm and by appointment

GREAT CAUSE AND WONDERFUL ARTIST

John Egeland

Medium: Acrylic on canvas                                Size: 16″ x 20″

Price: $2,000

The Guild is proud to assist John Egeland, one of its members, in a project we all feel is very worthy. John is a strong advocate of the homeless population in the Dallas area and donates much of his time to the cause. In addition, as part of our fall show Creme de la Creme, John is donating all profits from the sale of his beautiful painting, “Forsaken”, to the Dallas Life Foundation.

The story of Dallas LIFE starts with a man named Reverend Robert J. Key, one of the founders of the Union Gospel Mission in 1949. With Dallas’ homeless population growing in the post war years, Reverend Key left UGM to begin establishing the Dallas Rescue Mission. It was this endeavor that would become Dallas LIFE, now the largest homeless shelter in North Texas.
Dallas Rescue Mission opened its doors in 1954 in a small storefront location on Commerce Street. There, Rev. Key would minister to the men who came to him nightly for shelter and a hot meal. Rev. Key and his volunteers kept the shelter open every night for the next 25 years.

Please keep in mind that 3.5 million people in the US will be homeless this year. One third of those will suffer from chronic mental illness and 1.4 million will be children. These are staggering numbers that we should all want to see decrease rapidly. They need our help and we should all do our part to end the struggle for at least some of these.

Will you please help John, and more importantly the homeless community, by purchasing this beautiful work of art.

You can go visit our Creme de la Creme show and see this wonderful piece of art at the Frisco Discovery Center during normal business hours.

Matthew Alexander Exhibit at Alan Barnes Fine Art

Alan Barnes General Invite
World renowned British impressionist Matthew Alexander will be exhibiting at Alan Barnes Fine Art from November 20- December 18. Alexander is one of the leading Impressionist painters in British 20th Century Art.  Born to be a painter, his father was a painter – his brother is a painter and the conversation in the family seldom strayed from the continual struggle that ensues the creative process.  Alexander’s paintings are timeless yet modern making him one of the most sought after impressionist artists today.  Alexander’s exhibits at the Royal Academy London, the British Institution as well as the Royal Society of British Artists have been preludes to his continuous sell out shows on London’s Cork Street.
Light on the Landscape is a special collection of small oil paintings that speak of sunlight; sunlight when it breaks through clouds, and shadows where they congregate, painted especially for this Dallas exhibition.  Alan Barnes Fine Art is the sole representative of Alexander’s work in the United States.

Art in the Metroplex

AIM logo

Works by 33 North Texas artists have been accepted for the 2014 Art in the Metroplex juried exhibition, which will be on view October 3-30 at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center. Thirty-six works featuring a wide array of media, subject matter and styles were selected from nearly 700 submitted by over 250 artists from Tarrant, Dallas and surrounding counties.

A reception for the artists will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. October 3 at the Arts Center. An awards ceremony will follow a talk by juror Sara-Jayne Parsons at 6:30 p.m.

Exhibiting artists will include Carol Benson, Daniel Blagg, Jim Brightwell, Daphne Carrasco, Janet Chaffee, Leah E. Clausen, Rachel Fischer, Jan Ayers Friedman, Adam Fung, Betsey Gravatt, John Hartley, Trish Igo, Ellie Ivanova, Sam Ivie, Marilyn Jolly, Lance Jones, Mary Jung, Nancy Lamb, Lorrie McClanahan, Doris Mobley, Katie Murray, Devon Nowlin, Jill O’Brien, Patricia Rubio Paredes, Kathy Robinson-Hays, Aaron Roe, Winter Rusiloski, Abby Sherrill, Carroll Swenson-Roberts, Diana Synatzske, Diana Walker-Gladney, David Willburn and Vance Wingate.

After a brief hiatus, TCU handed over the reins of the Art in the Metroplex exhibit to the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, so this decades-long tradition of a multi-county show could continue. A fixture at TCU for 30 years, Art in the Metroplex was a collaboration between Templeton Art Center and the TCU School of Art. FWCAC is proud to be the new home of this significant regional exhibit.

Juror Sara-Jayne Parsons is the new director of The Art Galleries at TCU, lending a link to the former home of the show. Ms. Parsons has been the exhibitions curator of The Bluecoat in Liverpool, UK, for the past six years, and is a contributor to Source and Art Monthly Australia. She received her MA in art history from the University of North Texas in 1996, and served as assistant director of the UNT Art Galleries. She is completing a Ph.D. in art history at the University of Texas at Austin.
