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.

Geof Kern: Life, Death, Beauty and Garbage, Selected Work Pictures 1987-1997

Geofkern_FigurewithPrintersTray_1989PDNBGallery_PDNBGallery

PDNB Gallery is pleased and honored to present Geof Kern’s second solo exhibition this fall. It will highlight work from 1987-1997. This time frame marks one of Geof Kern’s (b. 1950, New York City) most recognized periods of innovative fashion/ advertising/ editorial photography in his career.  His photographs are conceptual, often including surrealist references. Kern manipulated the medium (pre-photoshop) using multiple exposure, collage, photo sculpture and dioramas that soon catapulted his presence in the commercial photography world. Exhibition runs from September 10th thru October 8th. Geof Kern will be attending the artist reception Saturday, September 10th from 5-8pm.

Stuart Allen: Bubble

12041_StuartAllen_1stdibs

Although it is child’s play, bubbles reveal the color spectrum that we cannot see. In keeping with Stuart Allen’s exploration with light and color, he has taken another step in presenting the color spectrum by photographing the amorphic shapes against the sky. Each bubble makes visible the color we do not see with the naked eye. Artist reception, Saturday, April 30, 2016 from 5-8 PM. Exhibition will run April 30 – June 18, 2016
