Ricardo Paniagua has become known as a visual artist for his trompe l’oeil constructions and dream-inspired canvases. The descendent of generations of master tile artisans, Paniagua’s creativity manifests itself in precise geometry and does not rely on a catalogue of historical art references. Rhythm and form unite his geometric sculptures, wall sculptures, and tondos with the deep spirituality of many of his canvas paintings. The solo exhibition will open at Bivins Gallery with a reception on Saturday, December 9, 2017 from 5 to 8pm. Complimentary valet parking will be provided, as well as validated self-parking.

Bivins Gallery Solo Exhibition Announcement Featuring Richard Hickam: Expressions of Color

Richard Hickam | Mulberry Forest | 1990 | oil on canvas | 67″ x 57″

Opening reception on Sat., September 16, 2017, 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Bivins Gallery in the Uptown Dallas Crescent complex.

Bivins Gallery is pleased to present the vibrant paintings of master colorist Richard Hickam in RichardHickam: Expressions of Color, on view from September 16 through October 21, 2017. The show will occupy the main gallery, and will trace Hickam’s artistic development from photorealism to large-scale abstracts to figurative abstractions, and his dedicated examination of the manipulation of color and brushstroke. Karen and Michael Bivins will host an opening reception for the exhibition with the artist in attendance at BivinsGallery on Sat., September 16, 2017 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. Complimentary valet parking will be provided for the opening and for all guests of Bivins Gallery during normal business hours.

Richard Hickam’s style, technique and influences are constantly evolving, yet his rich palette and unique characterizations make his work distinguishable. Hickam’s career began in the 1970s and was initially influenced by the photorealistic movement that surrounded him. Hickam’s affinity for pushing conventional boundaries transformed his style in the 1980s and 1990s, where his brushstroke loosened and took on an energetic gestural impasto, resulting in a series of large-scale abstractions. In the late 1990s, Hickam began exploring figurative abstraction. Discernable from this body of work are his portraits, whose striking features reflect a collection of inspirations, often combining physical aspects of multiple characters in Hickam’s own life. Through all his stylistic transitions, Hickam’s bold handling of color and tone remain the main subjects of his paintings.

Richard Hickam has been a celebrated American painter for over forty years, and his works have been exhibited in museums across the United States. His career has been the topic of numerous publications, and his works can be found in both private and public collections, including the Richmond Museum of Art, the Columbus Museum of Art, the Canton Museum of Art, and the Beck Center Museum.

Jack Whitten: Earlier Works at Bivins Gallery

Jack Whitten

Bivins Gallery is pleased to present Jack Whitten: Earlier Works from April 1-May 6, 2017.

Created during a five-year period in the late 1960s, the paintings and works on paper featured in Jack Whitten: Earlier Works reference race, cosmology, music, and politics. Influenced by personal relationships with Willem de Kooning, Martin Luther King, Jr., Miles Davis, Philip Guston, and Franz Kline, the abstractions reflect the social and political turmoil of the era. The conversation will be joined by Dallas’s own local artist Spencer Evans, whose work references issues of identity and image in the black community. Please join us at the opening reception on April 1 from 5 pm – 8pm, at the gallery’s Uptown location, to continue the dialogue. Bivins Gallery is located at 300 Crescent Court, Suite 100,Dallas, TX 75201. http://www.bivinsgallery.com/ Please contact anna@bivinsgallery.com for more details.
