CADD Announces 2017 Scholarship Winner! Taylor Jenkins

AND THE WINNER IS…
TAYLOR JENKINS
2017 CADD SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT
Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas is proud to present the 2017 CADD Scholarship to TAYLOR JENKINS, a dedicated young artist and graduating senior from Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Dallas, Texas.
Taylor was accepted into multiple university art schools and will attend the University of Michigan’s Penny W. Stamps School of Art and Design in the fall.

Artist Statement – When beginning a piece, I think about color, pattern, and texture immediately. I find inspiration in nature and the unexpected object around me. Heavy patterns found in fabric and wallpaper is evident throughout my work whether drawn or sculpted. These abstract concepts are incorporated into my art in an overt or passive manner. I enjoy challenging myself when it comes to mixing media, colors and textiles. Searching for beauty in abstraction, whether geometric or organic, makes me focus on my own interpretations. Different methodology and tools are dependent on what kind of project I am working on. I believe finding a way to incorporate multiple techniques into a single project makes a piece more interesting and gives it dimension. The artistic expression is a constant process for me because I continue to develop my ideas and vision for the finished product as I work.

CONGRATULATIONS TAYLOR!

CADD Announces 2016 Scholarship Winner! Netanel Saso

NetanelSaso1 NetanelSaso2

CADD Announces 2016 Scholarship Winner!
AND THE WINNER IS…

Netanel Saso
2016 CADD SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT
Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas is proud to present the 2016 CADD Scholarship to Netanel Saso (Netty), a dedicated young artist and graduating senior from Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Dallas, Texas. Netanel was accepted into multiple top-tier art schools and will attend The Cooper Union in New York City next year, and is planning on majoring in sculpture.
“Booker T. gave me the opportunity to explore forms of art I would have never been exposed to otherwise, such as printmaking, jewelry, and sculpture. This year, I decided to take AP 3D and AP 2D, to see how my ideas could combine and bounce off of each other in both classes. Having a lot of the teachers influence me and teach me consistent new things in both classes has truly made me realize that I had to get a BFA. Next year, I will be attending The Cooper Union in New York, one of the hardest schools to get into with an 8% acceptance rate. I plan to major in sculpture, because Booker T. made me realize how sculpture is endless, there are hundreds of things you can create, and many opportunities to find a job afterwards. Sculpture has been the most challenging class, and that is what I thrive on.“
                                                                                                                               NETANEL SASO
unnamed (15) unnamed (14)
Recommendations from her teachers at Booker T.
Netanel embodies the many unique characteristics that every educator seeks. She is artistically talented, hardworking, and always willing to accept the biggest challenge. I know her talents will continue to flourish in college and she will earn a place as one of our successful alumni!
Netanel has an impressive resume with awards, achievements, and extensive exhibition experience. She is the vice president of National Art Honor Society and loves to be involved in her community. As a high schooler, she has already developed a reputation as an artist and receives constant requests for murals and art commissions.
Netanel has proven to be a reliable and trustworthy senior. Faculty members like myself are always entrusting her with extra responsibility and requesting her assistance. She is good at gathering other students to help with our community art projects because so many of our underclassmen look up to her.
A talented visual artist, Netanel is a young woman whose brain and heart are outmatched only by her hard work and dedication to all that she takes on.
Netanel is undoubtedly a young woman who demands the best, not just of herself but of the people and the world around her, and she’s willing to work to get it. She possesses the personality, the drive, the grit, and the commitment to make a measurable mark at her chosen university as part of the class of 2019.

Alba Collection Symposium Dec. 4

alba symposium

Alba Collection Symposium Dec. 4

Join us for a public symposium at the Meadows Museum that will bring together established and emerging scholars for discussion and debate on a selection of masterpieces from the collection of the Alba family.
The morning session will be devoted to three keynote lectures that will narrate a story of the life and afterlife of the Alba collection, and raise broader questions about parallel collections throughout Europe. The first lecture will examine the dispersal of the Alba collection in the nineteenth century, the second will investigate the political appropriation of the collection during the Spanish Civil War, and the third will address conservation issues pertaining to specific objects. The afternoon session will take place in the exhibition galleries, where eight speakers will present “object biographies,” unfolding the stories of individual works on view in the exhibition. A break for lunch will follow the morning session, and the symposium will close with a reception for attendees.
This symposium is co-organized by the Meadows Museum and the Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art History at The University of Texas at Dallas.

“H. Paxton” Student Scholarship Auction to open at El Centro

“H. PAXTON”

Student Scholarship Fundraiser Auction

Jan. 26 – Feb. 5, 2015

Reception/Live Auction: TR 2/5 4-6 pm

Paxton Moore Fine Art Gallery

Telephone: 214-860-2115

Gallery Hours: M-W 10-4, TR 10-7, F 10-3

The H. Paxton Moore Fine Art Gallery announces our first exhibition for the spring semester, a student scholarship fundraiser auction, to raise money for the H. Paxton Moore Fine Art Gallery Fund. The gallery namesake, H. Paxton Moore, was a beloved longtime faculty member at El Centro and supporter of the fine arts, and when the gallery was named in his memory in 2007, a fund was created to benefit our students.

Each academic year, the gallery gives out $2500 in scholarships and awards to our visual fine arts students each year from the gallery fund. This ongoing generosity has made it important to replenish the fund, so that we may continue this mission in support of our students.
Works from a selection of approximately three dozen professional, faculty, and student artists, including Carlos Donjuan, Raymond Butler, Artist DIY, Randall Garrett, Annie Chrietzberg, and many  more will be available to bid on. During the exhibition, work will be available to purchase on the spot, at a “Buy It Now” price not to exceed $200. At the closing reception a live auction will be held, and works will be auctioned at any price, to the highest bidder. There will be plenty of small paintings, sculpture, framed works on paper, and artist multiples available.

Additionally, interested patrons may make a donation directly to the gallery fund, to benefit our visual fines arts students at:
