The Richard Brettell Award in the Arts April 11-13

brettell

The Richard Brettell Award in the Arts at UT Dallas, established in 2016 with an endowment from Mrs. Eugene McDermott, recognizes the essential and fundamental role in the arts in the life of the university. The award honors an artist working in or between any of the broad spectrum of artistic endeavors, including the visual arts, music, literature, performance, and architecture/design.

Given every other year, the award consists of a prize of $150,000 and a week’s residence on the UT Dallas campus and in Dallas, during which the awardee will present a major public lecture and interact in a variety of venues with the students, staff and faculty of UT Dallas and with the larger arts community of the Dallas-Ft. Worth area.

Prospective awardees will be nominated by the Brettell Award Advisory Committee, composed of international leaders in arts and culture, with the selection of the awardee being made by an Executive Committee composed of university and community leaders.

The concept of the Brettell Award is inspired by the Eugene McDermott Award in the Arts at MIT, created by the McDermott Family at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1974. The MIT McDermott Award is also made every other year, and it is planned to schedule the two events in alternating years.

Outdoor Painters Society’s Plein Air Southwest Salon

Mike Mahon - Santa Fe Wonderland

The Artists Showplace Gallery is delighted to host one of the premier art events of the season. Plein Air Southwest Salon is a juried competition, exhibition and sale sponsored by the Outdoor Painters Society and showcased every April in Dallas. The annual event seeks to promote an appreciation for the process of en plen air, which is French for “in open air”. Most of the works were completed in a single painting session, painted outdoors on location, and are characterized by the bold use of color, design and the freshness of paint application.

The exhibit runs from April 8 to May 13. The opening reception and presentation of awards will take place on Saturday, April 8, from 3:00 to 6:00. On Sunday, April 9, the gallery will be open from 1:00 to 5:00, with artist demonstrations from 2:00 to 4:00.

Dallas Quilt Show March 10 -12 at Dallas Market Hall

2017-dallas-show-round

Dallas Quilt Show 2017
“Its a Charmed Life!”

March 10 – 12, 2017

Friday, Saturday and Sunday
Dallas Market Hall

 

 

http://www.quiltersguildofdallas.org/2016_show_event_home

This year, the Show Chair’s Theme is “It’s a Charmed Life!”

Charm Quilts have been around for over 150 years. They are referred to by many names: One Patch, indicating a single shape; Beggar, indicating that the quilter begged for fabric; and Odd-Feller, indicating no repeats in fabrics. Some very recognizable patterns include 1000 Pyramids, Grandmother’s Flower Garden, Apple Core and Postage Stamp.

For the purposes of the show theme category, here are the rules:

  • ONE SHAPE ONLY! You can use various sizes of the same shape in the quilt.
  • You can repeat fabrics in the quilt.
  • The edges of the quilt may have partial shapes where the sides were squared up, but the body of the quilt can have only one shape.
  • Borders and applique are allowed but should be an accent, not the focus.

Quilts can be one-person, two-person or group. Add a little charm to your life in 2017!


Sponsored by the Quilter’s Guild of Dallas

A big THANK YOU to all the LGAA members that submitted work for the Spring Show Poster. You will see them hung around the historic square and around town. The decision was difficult and we were looking for work that paired up well visually with another piece. The decision was so difficult that we are going to use TWO posters this year. Congratulations to Pam Tullos, Telise Rodelv, James Stewart and Jill Randall.
