CADD’s Summer Bus Tour on July 22


CONTEMPORARY ART DEALERS OF DALLAS

 
presents
CADD SUMMER BUS TOUR
SATURDAY, JULY 22, 2017
5:00-9:00 pm

CADD has been promoting the visual arts through unique programming since 2006 and the bus tours have been going strong since 2010. Bus tour participants might gain access to artist’s studios, galleries, private collections, corporate collections, art installations or other special venues!

The July 22nd CADD BUS TOUR

will visit three CADD member galleries, as well as Polsinelli’s art collection, and a private collection. Refreshments will be served at each gallery with a light supper served at the end of the evening in a private home. Proceeds from CADD events assists with the CADD Scholarship and CADD Educational Programs. Buy your ticket and join us!

The bus tour begins at CONDUIT GALLERY. Participants will park their cars at 5pm and proceed inside to view two exhibitions. The first is a group exhibition of works by gallery artists, including Marcelyn McNeil, Vincent Falsetta, Roberto Munguia and Jules Buck Jones. The second is a collaborative installation between James Sullivan and Hellen Ascoli exploring issues of the body, its presence and place within different societies. The original siting was an installation at Concepcion 41, in Antigua, Guatemala. It is titled, “Mi Cuerpo está aquí…..mi cuerpo no está aquí –(2)”.

Your 2nd stop is POLSINELLI. Polsinelli is an Am Law 100 firm with approximately 800 attorneys in 20 offices, serving corporations, institutions, and entrepreneurs.  The firm’s national art collection embodies the energy, diversity, innovation, and forward-facing realities of the communities in which it is embedded. The 63,000 square foot Dallas office is marked by efficient design and a hospitality-driven approach that streamlines the work environment, creating a distinctive client experience and forming an elegant backdrop for the art collection.  A grand staircase serves as the centerpiece of the lobby, oriented to showcase views of Dallas’ skyline, and graced by a ceramic sculpture by Lauren Mabry.  Among the forty artworks displayed are works by area artists Joan WinterTommy FitzpatrickMatthew CusickDornith Doherty and John Holt Smith. Holly Johnson will ably replace the firm’s curator for this tour.

Then jump on the bus to visit two CADD galleries at 1845 Levee Street.

CRIS WORLEY FINE ARTS is pleased to introduce four new artists in this summer’s exhibition, Introductions. Marc Dennis, Adrian Esparza, Sherry Owens, and Robert Sagerman display radical and unique talents in sculpture and painting. Hyper-realist artist Marc Dennis brings levity, humor and virtuosity to his sumptuous oil paintings, depicting subjects from the art historical canon infused with contemporary themes. Adrian Esparza has inspired international attention through his deconstruction of the Mexican sarape, using its colorful yarn to create large-scale geometric forms. Sherry Owens is a prominent Texas sculptor known for her exquisite sculptures made from repurposed crepe myrtle branches and bronze. Informed by his academic studies in art history and Kabbalist Mysticism, Robert Sagerman creates paintings that awe and impress with titles that correspond to the number of strokes made by the artist. Repetition as a form of meditation gives way to a mystical experience.

HOLLY JOHNSON GALLERY features two exhibitions. Michael Young: Updrafts, is an exhibition of new paintings by Austin-based artist. Young’s inspiration is drawn from a lexicon of interrelated subjects such as Mimbres pottery, tantric art, geology, seismographs, modernist and colonial architecture, stereotomy, desert landscapes, petroglyphs, Japanese pottery, Native American design languages, textiles, microphotography, bee hives and the study of pollen.Michelle Mackey: Doubletake, is an exhibition of new paintings by the Dallas/Brooklyn-based artist. Within Mackey’s art there is a palpable sense of multi-dimensionality and spatial transference — where settings and imagery fragment and converge.  She uses light and its power to confuse structural logic, so that these paintings suspend between the known and the unknown.

Your final stop of the evening will be the private collection at the spectacular home of LORI and TOM REISENBICHLER. Refreshments and a light supper will be served.

CADD Announces 2017 Scholarship Winner! Taylor Jenkins

AND THE WINNER IS…
TAYLOR JENKINS
2017 CADD SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT
Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas is proud to present the 2017 CADD Scholarship to TAYLOR JENKINS, a dedicated young artist and graduating senior from Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Dallas, Texas.
Taylor was accepted into multiple university art schools and will attend the University of Michigan’s Penny W. Stamps School of Art and Design in the fall.

Artist Statement – When beginning a piece, I think about color, pattern, and texture immediately. I find inspiration in nature and the unexpected object around me. Heavy patterns found in fabric and wallpaper is evident throughout my work whether drawn or sculpted. These abstract concepts are incorporated into my art in an overt or passive manner. I enjoy challenging myself when it comes to mixing media, colors and textiles. Searching for beauty in abstraction, whether geometric or organic, makes me focus on my own interpretations. Different methodology and tools are dependent on what kind of project I am working on. I believe finding a way to incorporate multiple techniques into a single project makes a piece more interesting and gives it dimension. The artistic expression is a constant process for me because I continue to develop my ideas and vision for the finished product as I work.

CONGRATULATIONS TAYLOR!

3015 Gulden Lane
Dallas, TX 75212


Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas will again celebrate creativity and community with a Sunday Soup Supper on October 18th at 3015 at Trinity Groves. CADD FUNd 2015 will be a fun, fast-paced evening of sharing innovative ideas about potential artistic projects. The CADD FUNd 2015 will make possible a high-impact idea that needs the support of the Dallas-Fort Worth arts community.The idea for the annual CADD FUNd was inspired by similar events throughout the United States such as Feast in Brooklyn, Incubate in Chicago and Spread in Santa Fe. Over the past several years, numerous organizations have taken the basic premise of a Sunday soup dinner – collect creative proposals, invite the public to pay, eat, and listen, and then democratically vote for a winner – and adapted it to their own local purposes.

This year’s CADD FUNd will be awarded to a current or previous B.A, B.F.A., M.A. or M.F.A. graduate or candidate from an institution within 100 miles of Dallas. Six finalists will be selected from all of the applicants by an esteemed group of jurors including: Justine Ludwig, Director of Exhibitions and Senior Curator at The Dallas Contemporary; Jed Morse, Chief Curator at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas and Michael Mazurek, Dallas artist and Curator at the Goss-Michael Foundation.

During the event on October 18th the six finalists will present short proposals for original and yet-to-be-realized new projects. Members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask questions. The audience participants then vote for their favorite project. After a short recess to tally the votes, the winner of CADD FUNd 2015 will be announced!

The final amount awarded to the CADD Fund Winner is solely dependent on ticket sales. More tickets sold mean more funds for the winner! Tickets are $40 per person. In lieu of charging artists an application fee, $10 of each ticket sold will be applied toward event and administrative costs. Tickets will not be available at the door.

We hope that CADD FUNd will also be a forum to discuss the many other needs and resources that help make projects happen.
