The Bath House Cultural Center and exhibition curator, Jose Vargas, invite visual artists to submit entries for the 24th Annual El Corazón art exhibition.
Since 1993, Mr. Vargas has organized the El Corazón art exhibition in Dallas. This popular exhibition is a beloved annual tradition at the Bath House Cultural Center that gives artists an opportunity to create various artistic interpretations of the human heart. This passionate and eclectic exhibition features a variety of ideas, styles, and concepts inspired by the heart (El Corazón), an important and universal symbol in art.
SUGGESTED THEME: Hearts and Music
Listening to music can be good for the heart. When you hear music, what feelings do you experience? Well, put those feelings onto a canvas (or other media). Think of this exhibition as El Corazón with a musical slant! Create a piece of art based on a favorite song, or a particular style of music, or musician. Or, perhaps, you can do a combination of a heart and a musical instrument. When it comes to combining the symbol of the heart and the concept of music, the possibilities are limitless.

The Essential Nature and Freddie McCoo exhibitions at the Bath House

 

Join us for the opening reception of our two new art exhibitions
Saturday, September 2, 20177-9 PM
Featuring live music by Percussion Things – Free and open to the public
Resurface: Artwork by Freddie McCoo

Freddie McCoo’s experiences growing up in St. Louis, Missouri, began to shape his core of artistic sensibilities from an early age. His modest upbringing, careful observation of the world around him, and subsequent deep interest in subjects that focus on social, economic, political, cultural and spiritual issues are clearly manifested in his paintings, murals, and mixed media art.

Freddie’s work is constantly in a state of evolution. Some of his earlier works depict themes that draw inspiration from music, relationships, and the predicaments of living in a disadvantaged community. The artist presently continues to revisit those topics, but his interests have broadened to include concepts that investigate biblical imagery, history, cultural identity, and contemporary political concerns. When it comes to his style and technique, some might suggest that his experience working in large scale murals has provided the artist with the dexterity and clarity to infuse all of his works—through his choices of colors, textures, composition, and scale—with an admirable sense of monumentality and relevance.

A common feature in Freddie’s work is the use of symbols and texts, which often require thorough exploration by the viewer and, often, a bit of decoding. Freddie explains that he has come to appreciate the diversity of symbols and text as long-standing tools of visual communication. He states: “When thoughtfully juxtaposed, both text and symbol can become significantly more relevant and thus begin to reveal certain deep-seated truths.”


The Essential Nature

Featuring artwork by Ruda Anderson, Maureen Brouillette, Jenny DeLaughter, Viola Delgado, Cecelia Feld, Nancy Ferro, Susan Lecky, Mylan Nguyen, Silvia Thornton, Cecilia Thurman, Edith Torres Avendano,and Sarita Westrup.

In every creative discipline, artists express their experiences and emotions in innumerable ways. The methods, techniques, or arrangements that artists choose to illustrate their works’ central idea or principal theme are unsurprisingly diverse, given the universe of perspectives, beliefs, and personal partialities with which artists view the world. Art forms also vary in the degree of extensiveness or simplicity demonstrated by artists as they explore and communicate a message. Whereas some literary works employ long texts that are written with the intention of expanding on a main topic to offer a more meticulous study of a subject through further elaboration, visual art tends to be a deliberate process of elimination and reduction used by many artists to strip concepts and thoughts to their bare essentials.

This exhibition examines the notion that a work of visual art is fully capable of conveying, effectively and economically, complex ideas and narratives. The pieces presented in the show demonstrate that a picture is worth the meaning of ten thousand words. Whether with representational or abstract works, the participating artists express a multiplicity of messages with art that stand for qualities such as clarity, conciseness and simplification. The practical task—intentional or otherwise—of reducing unnecessary elements during the making of visual art does not subtract substance from the works. Reduction of elements in visual arts, normally, does not translate into a dilution of meaning; instead, it leads to an experience where the art reveals only the most indispensable and utterly fundamental aspects of the narratives and concepts investigated by the artists.

New exhibitions with Fannie Brito, Teri Muse, Diane Walker-Gladney and S. Chuck McCarter at the Bath House

Join us for the opening reception of our two new art exhibitions
Saturday, July 8, 2017 • 7-9 PM
Featuring live music by Percussion Things – Free and open to the public

Recollective: Paintings by Fannie Brito, Diane Walker-Gladney and Teri Muse

July 8-August 5, 2017

One of the most interesting aspects of abstract painting is the medium’s ability to inspire the viewer to experience the work from two different, yet interconnected, sensorial perspectives: the perception of the work centered on the outward qualities that make the painting attractive and captivating, and the nonconcrete, subliminal aspects of the art that often require subjective decoding and active participation of the public. The three artists featured in the Recollective exhibition, Fannie BritoTeri Muse, and Diane Walker-Gladney, are aware of the interlinked relationship of the material and the intangible every time they create their works. Although each of the artist’s is focusing on diverse impressions and is using different technical approaches to do her work, the viewer can still detect a number of concepts and viewpoints that all of the artists are sharing.

The Recollective exhibition brings together the artists’ common interests and sensibilities and explores the power granted by the art of painting to evoke enduring images, memories, and emotions. Through abstract paintings, formed with multiple layers of color, texture, implied texts, and vivid expressiveness, the painters attempt to rescue a hidden or almost forgotten recollection. The process of painting becomes a vehicle to the subconscious world of the artists and the final works are an earnest effort to remember some occurrence or experience that is transplanted from the memory to the canvases. An essential task of the viewer in the gallery then becomes to extract his own personal messages and remembrances from the field of color and marks so that, as a result, the exhibition turns into a collaborative reminiscing act that is both rich and engaging..

Whimsical:

Recent Paintings by S. Chuck McCarter

July 8-August 5, 2017

The paintings from S. Chuck McCarter’s new exhibition, Whimsical, at the Bath House Cultural Center, faithfully reflect the artist’s natural inclination for the playful interaction of art elements and the world of his experiences, real and imagined. He affirms that art is his mind at play and that colors, shapes, and surface textures are his sandbox from which his content emerges.

The inspiration for Chuck’s work come from childhood stories, fairy tales, ancient historical epics, the Bible, Native American narratives and careful observations of daily life and its oddities. The artist includes humans, animals, metaphorical imagery, and multicultural references in his work. Although some of the artist’s work is based on research and study, he describes his work as an often evolving and ever-changing process that he embarks upon intuitively and spontaneously, often with the aid of meditation and inner exploration. Through relaxed contemplation, inwardness, and silence, the painter finds his deepest soul, letting the piece dictate what it wants to become. The artist explains: “Correct painting, so to say, can only happen or be expressed when the colors themselves are allowed to lead, letting specific shapes and themes arise from the color’s interaction. When the practicioner is neither impossing himself on the process, nor trying to take control, real art can take place.

S. Chuck McCarter is a visual artist, exhibition curator, and a recently retired art professor. He lives and works near White Rock Lake in East Dallas.

Non Pixelated: The Persistence of Painting in the Digital Age

 

 July 2-30, 2016

 Reception with the Artists: Saturday, July 2, 2016 (7-9 PM)

Featuring the work of eighteen DFW painters, the Non Pixelated exhibition explores the unceasing relevance of the traditional medium of painting in the context of our contemporary digital age. The exhibition includes the work of artists who, for the most part, have chosen not to shift completely from their use of analogue painting techniques to the more widely accessible mass digital media.

Unlike other exhibitions where the art pieces adhere to a certain theme or stylistic direction, the Non Pixelated show focuses mainly on presenting a collection of highly imaginative artwork that serves as irrefutable evidence that painting remains an enduring, vibrant, and ever-present form of art in a world that seems to be inundated and enthralled by digital imagery. The art pieces in this exhibition make a determined and resounding statement that the contribution of painting to the world of art continues to be, and will continue to be for a long time to come, of utmost prominence.

Non Pixelated includes paintings by Rita Barnard, Sarah Barnett, Awadh Baryoum, Bernard Bortnick, S. Chuck McCarter, Justin Clumpner, Ray-Mel Cornelius, Steve Danner, Jacque Forsher, Gale Gibbs, Duke Horn, Karen Jacobi, Darrell Madis, Alexa Mason, Julia McLain, Ruben Miranda, Monica Moody, and Madelyn Sneed.

The exhibition was curated by Enrique Fernández Cervantes.

palmercardweb
Dallas artist, Anna Palmer, has been visiting and photographing White Rock Lake for several years and has never ceased to be amazed at the diversity of life that exists in that place. Anna believes that the lake is a popular attraction and destination for a variety of reasons. The artist observes that many people visit the lake to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

The serene setting of the lake offers a tranquil refuge for those who seek a temporary respite from urban stress. Considered a peaceful haven in the middle of the city, White Rock Lake provides a placid atmosphere that appeals to a large number of visitors every day.

But Anna points out that the lake also provides the public with a livelier side that comes from the rich ecosystem found in the area. She expresses that the undisturbed nature and untamed wildlife of the lake are as enticing and stimulating as the gentler side of the lake. Her exhibition offers views of both sides of the ever-changing natural world that one can experience at our beautiful oasis in Dallas.
