JUROR: E. Melinda Morrison

As a young woman, her B.A. in Fine Arts from the University of Texas at Tyler took a backseat to the corporate world for many years: advertising exec; graphic designer and art director of her own company; and later corporate and executive recruiter for national technology and digital marketing advertising companies.  Not surprisingly, she was recognized in national competitions for her print design and annual reports while living in Dallas but shortly after her move to Denver in 1994, the satisfied extrovert began to hear from the starving artist.  She says she “felt like her soul was drying up.”  An oil-painting class at the Art Students’ League of Denver rained water on that desert ground.

Over the next five years, Melinda studied painting at the Denver Arts League under the guidance of nationally known and accomplished masters such as Quang Ho, Kim English, Kevin Wechbach and Ron Hicks.  As her passion and skill grew, so did her dream to paint full-time.  She made the leap in 2003 and brought years of corporate skills into the new and intricate dance of a full-time professional art career.  She hasn’t looked back.  Since that decision, Melinda has had multiple one-woman shows in Santa Fe, New Mexico and participated in national and regional shows, and plein air events in the Southwest and Southeast gaining recognition for her figurative paintings.  She is a gifted teacher of workshops and is collected among collectors all across the US.

Recently, Melinda made a move from Colorado back to her home roots in Texas .  Choosing Fort Worth to be near family, Melinda opened her studio in her new home where she continues to paint and teach.

Melinda has been the featured artist in national and regional magazines and newspapers such as the American Art Collector, Southwest Art, Albuquerque Journal, The Santa Fean, and Focus Magazine.  She is a member of the Oil Painters of America, Outdoor Painters Society and the Portrait Society of America.  Melinda is currently represented by Alexandra Stevens Fine Art, Santa Fe, NM; Arts at Denver, Denver, CO; Greenwich House Gallery, Cincinatti, OH and OAGallery, Kirkwood, MO.

FIRST PLACE
“Dutch Tulips” by Dennis Crayon

“I am painting Trompe-l’œil where part of the painting is in focus the same ways that when you remember something part of the memory is focused and part of the memory is cloudy or deteriorated. I forced grew these tulips at home in the middle of the winter it gave me memories of past springs.”

SECOND PLACE
“Be Who You Are” by Leighann Foster

“You Cannot be Something You Are Not.”

THIRD PLACE
“Bluebonnets in the Early Afternoon” by Liz Rugg

“Can you see the shadows cast by clouds in the afternoon sky?”

PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD
“Late Summer Evening” by Joan Chamberlain

“Flowers from a late summer garden cast interesting shadows across a patio table, set for a couple of wine lovers. Like looking for shapes in the clouds, I can find fun characters in the long, cast shadows of the bottle, flowers and leaves. Can you see the guard dog baring his teeth at anyone daring to steal a sip of wine?”

Dutch Art Gallery Reception Dec. 2 for Annual Fall Show

11th Annual Fall Show
December 2, 2017 – January 19, 2018

The Dutch Art Gallery Presents 
“Do You See What I See”.

RECEPTION Saturday, December 2, 2017 11th annual Fall Show.

For images see http://dutchartgallery.net/product-category/show-winter-2017/

This theme can include the following interpretations:
Abstract/Modern artwork. Example: Hidden image that conveys a hidden image or emotional feeling
Traditional artwork.  Example: Boulder, plant, tree, etc. that has a hidden image in it.
A unique perspective. Example: Flower or bug (any object) with a magnified view that takes the piece into an Abstract, or traditional image.
The plan is for the Gallery to have a folded card next to the artwork describing the hidden element the Artist saw or created in the piece. This allows the customer to observe and participate with the Artist…almost like a treasure hunt.

We received a great response to our call and are proud to announce that work from 44 photographers from the Dallas-Fort Worth area has been selected to be in the show.  For the Preview Gallery go to http://irvingartassociation.org/2017/10/2017-iaa-photography-exhibition-preview-gallery/

Juror is Mark Thompson, an award-winning photographer, videographer and filmmaker. Mark began his career as a painter before discovering his penchant for digital media, at which point he began making the move from being a full-time painter to full-time professional photographer and videographer. Over the years Mark’s training and experience has touched on a variety of different genres that include everything from commercial & product photography to fine art and even filmmaking. Mark has worked as photographer for such outfits as CBS News, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Deep Ellum Foundation, and the Lyndie Wilkes Advertising Agency (just to name a few), his photography as been shown in art galleries all over North Texas, and he is currently producing his first feature-length documentary film.

75 works will be in the exhibit opening October 29 at the Jaycee Park Center for the Arts, Irving TX. The Reception & Awards Ceremony will be Sunday, November 5th, from 2-4pm. The show will be on view through December 1st.  Selected works will travel to the West Irving Library for an exhibit Dec. 3 – Jan. 7, 2018.

Congratulations to those IAA members whose work was selected: Tina Alvarez, Eleanore Avery, Amy Keng, Ron Kreml, Liang Li, Quentin Ochs, Kathleen Ramirez, Alfredo Santesteban and Mary Ann Vela.
