Valley House Opening Receptions: ALLISON GILDERSLEEVE: High Frequency, and ANNE C. WEARY: True to Nature

Two exhibitions, ALLISON GILDERSLEEVE: High Frequency, and ANNE C. WEARY: True to Nature, open with a reception, Saturday, April 28, 6:00pm-8:00pm. Allison Gildersleeve will give an artist talk earlier in the day, at 11:00am. Anne Weary will give an artist talk on May 5, at 11:00am.

Allison Gildersleeve: High Frequency

April 28 – June 2, 2018

Artist Talk: Saturday, April 28, 11:00am

Behind my canvases, collages, and drawings lies a singular proposition: places are not inert; they are repositories for all that passes through them. My work is an inquiry into the experiences and sensations manifestly lodged within our surroundings—not as formal histories but as personal, ever-changing narratives. I deliberately return again and again to familiar settings—wooded areas, home interiors, open highways, back country roads—to show that repeated visits to the same place invariably result in wildly divergent depictions. The practice of drawing is an essential part of my work. One wall of my studio is dedicated to my drawings; it becomes a storyboard for the project at hand. I’m interested in the point where imagery breaks down into abstraction, but not completely—I always want to catch it before the sensation of place dissolves into pure mark making.

Brooklyn-based painter Allison Gildersleeve spent her youth in rural Connecticut, where she was born. She earned a BA from the College of William & Mary, Williamsburg, Virginia, in 1992, and an MFA in 2006 from Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York. Valley House has represented Gildersleeve since 2014. A catalogue will accompany the exhibition.

Anne C. Weary: True to Nature

April 28 – June 2, 2018

Opening Reception: Saturday, April 28, 6:00pm – 8:00pm

Artist Talk: Saturday, May 5, 11:00am

Where I draw is the home and world of the animals–deer, foxes, coyotes, rabbits, armadillos, and wild pigs—and of course birds. They’re all around somewhere when I’m drawing quietly and my land is a safe habitat for them. I cannot resist the beauty and atmosphere of the woods-unspoiled and untouched by humankind.

Anne Weary’s studio is the outdoors and her drawings express a spiritual reverence for nature. On her land in Italy, Texas, she sets up a table in the woods, along the creek, or in a pasture, and makes finished drawings on site with graphite, charcoal, or conte. A drawing can take up to two months, one at a time, and Anne hopes the seasons don’t change her subject.

Anne Weary was born in Dallas, and Texas land has inspired her art for most of her life. She began studying with Dallas artist Olin Travis at age 12. In 1979, she earned a 4-year certificate from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts where she studied with Lou Sloan. Her focus was on drawing and she was awarded two prizes for excellence in drawing.

Valley House’s founder Donald Vogel mentored Anne Weary and we have represented her since 1987. Her drawings are in the collections of the Arkansas Arts Center, Dallas Museum of Art, El Paso Museum of Art, The Grace Museum, San Antonio Museum of Art, and Tyler Museum of Art.

April 20-22:  Steve Uriegas:  Fresh Landscapes
April 27-28:  Don Simmons:  Road TripPlease scroll down for more information on this upcoming show.

Fresh Landscapes by Steve Uriegas

Friday, April 20, 6 – 9 pm
Saturday, April 21, 4 – 9 pm
Sunday, April 22, 1 – 4 pm

Steve is exceptionally excited to show his new landscapes done in what he describes as Angular Expressionism. Raised in the coastal city of Corpus Christi, TX, Steve spent most of his childhood drawing, taking inspiration from comic books, album art and the colorful decor of his Hispanic heritage. In later years his artistic concepts have been inspired by observation, human emotion, inward struggles, spirituality and daily life.


Road Trip…photography by Don Simmons

Friday, April 27, 6-9 pm
Saturday, April 28, 6-9 pm

Please join Don as he relives some of his favorite road trips of the last several years, including trips to California, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, and around north Texas.  The main focus will be on landscapes and “urban decay” in both color and black and white, shot both digitally and on film.  There will be a little something for everybody to enjoy…

April 18th Receptions for “Results: Works from the UD Iron Pour” and “Interstices: Kelly O’Briant”

Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery at the University of Dallas: Please join us for 2 receptions in 1 night – April 18, 2018 5-7pm. For more information on all these events, email gallery@udallas.edu or call Christina Hayes Haley, the Gallery Manager at 972-721-5087.

Note: There is a lot of construction happening around us, so we are a little hard to find! If you have a smartphone enter 2910 Haggar Circle into Maps to find the Haggerty Art Village from there it is easy to find the Painting/Printmaking building.


Results: Works from the UD Iron Pour
April 12-22, 2018
Reception, April 18 | 5-7 p.m. with Introduction 5:45 p.m.
Thompson Loggia, Art History Building

In early March, an iron pour was held at on campus. With the help of the Texas Atomic Iron Pour Commission, 500 pounds of cast iron was broken and melted in an exciting fiery display. The event brought together artists, faculty, students, and spectators. All were there to watch the 2,500 degrees of molten iron pour from a cupola, or specifically designed furnace and into student and faculty made molds.

These molds were then cooled and broken open to reveal the results! Please join us to see the art that resulted from this fantastic project.

The UD Iron Pour was made possible with support from the Novinski Endowment, which generously supports programming in the arts.


Interstices | Kelly O’Briant
April 12-22, 2018
Reception, April 18 | 5-7 p.m. with artist talk 5:15 p.m.
Upper Gallery, Painting/Printmaking Gallery

Interstices is a unique glimpse into the many ways technology, science, and collaborative projects inform Kelly O’Briant’s art practice. O’Briant presents a series of interconnected small works created in gaps of time found between continuous projects and large exhibitions.

O’Briant is working with wildlife biologists and technicians in West Virginia and Virginia by using 3D printing to create decoys of Loggerhead Shrike birds for field research, she has been collaborating with ceramists in China, New York, and Texas to build an improved glaze test machine, and, closer to home, O’Briant is assisting The Cistercian Abbey Our Lady of Dallas to carry out a restoration project, on a colonial period crucifix, with artisans in Missouri.

The word “interstice” comes from the Latin “interstitium” which was derived from “inter” meaning “between” + “sistere” meaning “to stand” = to stand between. O’Briant demonstrates how the between spaces of art, research, and work can provide rich inspiration and opportunities for new works.

Please join us for the reception and hear more from Kelly O’Briant during her artist talk at 5:15 p.m., Wednesday, April 18.

At 500x this weekend: Kalee Appleton, Lynné Bowman Cravens, Ross Faircloth, Tabatha Trolli

500x Gallery

 

EXHIBITS

April 14 – May 6
Reception – Saturday, April 14th, 7pm-10 pm

Verisimilitudiness
by Kalee Appleton
Downstairs / Front Gallery

Verisimilitudiness is the quality of having the appearance of being true or real. It’s not a real word, but just wait. Kalee Appleton’s solo exhibition, Verisimilitudiness, is the last and final exhibition by Appleton at 500X Gallery, so naturally it will be the most verisimilitudinessy of them all. The work being exhibited will indeed be based on truth (its photography after all), but in reality, its full of lies. Not little white lies, but big huge enormous lies that pull you in and seduce you. These huge lies are in the form of broad expansive landscape photographs that are inspired by mainstream photographic backdrops. Yes, the kind you had your photograph taken with as a youngster. As this description of the exhibition might indicate, this work also calls into questions the nature of fine art photography within the realm of the art world.

False Memory
by Lynné Bowman Cravens
Upstairs / Main Gallery

False Mercury is a continuation of Cravens’ exploration of the body through distortions and duplicates.  In this installation, she utilizes mirrors and origami to jumble the body and question the barrier between the physical and mental.  Segmenting and focusing on different body parts, Cravens creates abstract origami sculptures that show the multiplicity present in our physical forms, and the disconnect with our mental selves.  Through the use of mirrors, she invites the viewer to perceive themselves, layered within the carefully constructed compositions.  Literally reflecting on where one begins and the other ends.

In Search of the Uncanny Valley
by Ross Faircloth
Upstairs / Main Gallery

Utilizing a Sony PS4 and the game Grand Theft Auto V, I submersed myself into the uncanny valley of Los Santos.  These images are captured in a documentary style throughout the large ‘sandbox’ style gameplay with the characters’ phone camera.  I have printed them with archival methods in the darkroom to add permanence to an image originating from what is normally an impermanent medium.  The interplay between this analog output of a digital source by means of the documentary photo style are key in this work. Although this game is not the most realistic in terms of graphics currently available, it is close enough to be confused with our reality upon first glance.  In that way the images serve as markers, but to what at this point isn’t clear. Maybe it’s just the beginning of the trip through the valley, or the turning point, when we begin to accept what was once maybe too ‘uncanny’ because at this moment we still create and control it.

Constructing the Psychographic
by Jennings Sheffield and Chris Ireland
Downstairs / Project Space

In 2014, Cambridge Analytica obtained information from over 250,000 Facebook users. Focusing on the Facebook “likes” recorded by those users and their friends, Cambridge Analytica utilized this data and information to help influence the outcome of the presidential election. This collaboration represents the physical manifestation of data retrieved and collected over 7 days from the artists’ Facebook feeds. The data mined is presented as wallpaper, creating a physical space made of virtual information. Then the artists utilized a psychographic survey application developed by the University Cambridge designed to predict personality traits through Facebook content, and ran their own Facebook pages and feeds to gain “insight” into their own personalities. Constructing the Psychographic presents the nature of the digital footprints we share so freely on the internet, and questions the validity of constructing identity through the individual profiles created.

The Gravity of it All
by Abby Sherrill and Tabatha Trolli
Upstairs / Project Space

“The Gravity of It All”, pairs the work of Abby Sherrill and Tabatha Trolli in an exhibition interpreting each artists’ experience of time and space. Both Sherrill and Trolli work with combinations of found objects and mixed media drawing through installation, with an interest in exploring the perception of meaning. Sherrill’s interests lie in the philosophical and psychological spaces between learning, language and reality. Often through illusion and layered pattern, the work emulates the accelerated complexity of deciphering meaning in a fictive world. Sherrill uses symbols and terminology borrowed from the laws of physics to cope with feelings of anxiety and disorientation. Trolli’s relationship with objects is connected to how she interprets the body, the emotional self and human consciousness. Casts of interior spaces are quiet references to our relationship with time and space and how we choose to occupy them. These ghosts of spaces become inflated memories and meaning that displaces our obligation to be present in this moment.  These objects are abstract representations of mindless ritualistic behavior suggesting paranoia or altered perceptions. They become disruptions in the routine…the mundane…the accepted.

Samuel Lynne Galleries Presents Brandon Boyd: OptiMystic

Samuel Lynne Galleries is pleased to announce the opening reception for Brandon Boyd’s exhibition OptiMystic on Saturday, May 12th, from 5-8pm. The artist will be in attendance at the opening reception, and the exhibition will be on view through June 2, 2018.

A Los Angeles, CA native, Boyd is famously recognized as the vocalist and frontman of Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum selling rock band, Incubus. In the early 2000’s each band member began to individually explore creative avenues outside of the band – art, film, and literature – allowing Boyd to discover his natural talent as a painter. His work as a singer- songwriter is well-documented and universally acclaimed, but his other life’s work as a visual artist is garnering increasing attention and devoted audiences of its own.

Fort Works Art Spring Gallery Night

Spring Gallery Night

Reception March 24th, 12 – 9pm
featuring three incredible exhibitions:

Out of Focus: Fabiola Valenzuela and Jesse Hernandez

My Eyes Are Up Here: Kate Stipp and Megan Van Groll

Adam Palmer: The Sentimental Circus

Exhibition runs March 21st through May 5th, 2018

Out of Focus

Artists Jesse Sierra Hernandez and Fabiola Valenzuela will utilize Fort Works Art gallery for an exploration of cultural identity titled Out Of Focus — through mixed medium representations that showcase Latinx roots, sociopolitics, and personal claims of culture. Out Of Focus unique installations and multi-faceted work poses a first generation perspective of displacement.

Jesse Sierra Hernandez, New York Hotel Room                Fabiola Valenzuela, Tu Que Sabes Pocha


My Eyes are Up Here

In the upper gallery, My Eyes Are Up Here showcases figurative artists Kate Stipp and Megan Van Groll. This exhibition will feature artistic revelations about the female experience, and the emotional, psychological, and cultural forces that shape the lives of women.


Kate Stipp, Constance                                                 Megan Van Groll, Crush

Adam Palmer: Sentimental Circus

In the FWA satellite gallery, Adam Palmer will show a series of abstract installations and drawings that are vibrant with fine lines of intentional color titled, The Sentimental Circus. Growing up in the 80’s in the small west Texas town of Monahans, Palmer used MTV, Nickelodeon and HBO as a form of escapism. These sources provide an aesthetic that he tries to portray in his work. In his latest body of work “The Sentimental Circus” Palmer has tried to capture certain periods in his life using the shapes, symbols and colors of that time. Adam Palmer, The Lost Art of Cookie Baking: Insect Olympics

Our next exhibition Dwelling: Paintings by Peter Ligon + Layla Luna opens Friday, March 23rd at 5:30 p.m. and will include artist talks on the night.

José Ignacio Alvarado: Venezuelan Sculptor exhibit opens March 17 at Frisco Fine Art

Frisco Fine Art is excited to bring the work of Venezuelan sculptor José Ignacio Alvarado to North Texas. Please join us for an opening reception and to meet the artist on Saturday, March 17, from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m.

Alvarado, an architect and designer, was born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1951. Throughout his distinguished career, he has been a university professor, the author of Arquitectura para todos (Architecture for All), a columnist at Diario Los Andes and a critic for Artefacto magazine. He has also taken part in ecological projects for zoos and botanical gardens.

Alvarado creates his sculptures out of metal ribbon, incorporating the space around the sculpture into the piece. The dance of the ribbon in the air creates a flowing figure which, when combined with color, results in a spiritual response from the viewer.

“Throughout my career as an architect, I satisfied people´s need for functionality. However, I have come to understand that mankind also needs to feel spiritual satisfaction, which has to be sought. This search is the focus of my work.”

Alvarado´s artwork has been exhibited in the U.S., Venezuela and Aruba.

Kettle Art proudly presents “Belladonnas”, a women’s collective exhibit showcasing the talent of local and diverse Dallas artists who exhibit strength, grace, and optimism in the community. In celebration of National Women’s History Month, this exhibit exemplifies the persistence, acceptance, and beauty of being a woman.

Opening Reception, Thursday, March 1st from 6:00pm – 9:00pm.

This exhibit runs through Sunday, April 8th.
A special sneak peek begins Thursday, February 22nd at 6:00pm.

ARTIST HIGHLIGHTS:

ERIN CURRY displays the underlying beauty and marvelousness of the world.

MINJI KANG-WATROUS shares her customary Korean influences, highlighting the beauty in her culture.

DANI KENT depicts images of femininity, resilience, and growth.

JAMIE WALTERS provides hope and gratitude for a woman’s journey through life.

ARTIST STATEMENTS:

ERIN CURRY: “Starting off as a biologist, I knew my affinity for the natural world was something I needed to pursue. While working for the Dallas Zoo, I discovered that I was to be a biologist turned artist. I picked up drawing about 4 years ago, and now I am showing my work all over the country.

Using NanoLiner ink pens, I draw my unique cubist characters onto handmade wood panels as well as Bristol media paper, which I then elevate into shadowboxes. The subject matter is inspired not only by my biology background, but for my love of anything oddly beautiful. I want my work to inspire and bring attention to the underlying beauty and marvelousness of the world around us!”

MINJI KANG-WATROUS: Minji is a Korean-born artist, currently living in the Dallas area. She is a self-taught artist who has been creating art for the last 15 years. Her work is a modern take on the traditional arts that have been passed down from her mother, who is an established Korean artist. Minji incorporates hanji (traditional Korean paper), as well as multimedia elements in her works, focusing on nature. From series to series, her works evolve. Previous works include a juxtaposition of nature to architecture, and the beauty of nature with contrast in finish.

For years, Minji has created art to assist and raise funds for numerous art auctions and fundraisers. Her work is known throughout the Dallas art community by her signature detailed floral, geometric, and abstract designs on board. The simplicity of her compositions inevitably draws the viewer closer for a more appreciated visual balance, which she perfects through depth and perspective.

DANI KENT: Dani Kent specializes in realistic, yet whimsical, watercolor paintings. She is a practicing artist and local art educator, born and raised in DFW. Her artwork depicts images of femininity, resilience, and growth arising from the exploration of those themes in her life and in the lives of those around her.

It is through her love of family, and in the service of education, that her art is shaped. Her work investigates themes of motherhood, and the dichotomy of femininity. There is a pervasive wonder in Dani’s watercolor paintings as she investigates the play between the subtleties of building gradual color fields to bold contrasting values. She exhibits a love for the fluidity of her medium to achieve a steadiness between hard and soft. Conceptually, her work focuses on the contrast and struggle between tough and gentle, resilience and beauty, and a womanly balance between power and grace.

JAMIE WALTERS: Jamie’s work represents the bright, beautiful light at the end of the tunnel. If you’re struggling through life, the vibrant colors give you hope. If you’re “living in the light,” the art is a daily reminder of gratitude.

The striking colors, flow of the brush, and elegant use of the pallet knife make Jamie’s work unique. Her signature style completes each piece with a resin technique.

“The most exhilarating feeling is finding a piece of art you connect with and love. It might not be the largest and most pristine piece in the show, but you have an undeniable connection to it.”

J. Vincent Scarpace Exhibit opens March 5th at the Mesquite Arts Center

J. VINCENT SCARPACE

Widely regarded as colorful, completely original, and whimsical, the original works of J. Vincent Scarpace, represent, in his own words, “a personal journey through the use of basic of art elements: line, shape, and color – resulting in an arrival, just past experimentation, at unique works of art which purposely resemble fish.” Perhaps best known for his abstract fish art, he’s followed his passion for the creative process, discovering that therein may lay the true reason for his next work of art, and next step in life for him – the pursuit of one’s own creative potential. For more about the artist, see the website http://ipaintfish.com/

Open Monday-Friday 8-5pm  Mesquite Arts Center https://www.cityofmesquite.com/158/Arts-Center

Reception: Saturday, March 3, 5-8 pm
Conversation: Saturday, March 10 at 3 pm

Haley-Henman proudly announces Gisa Elwazir’s newest series of paintings titled, Facades. These paintings are part of her continuing collection of organic abstractions. The artist will receive visitors at Open Studio 516 on Saturday, March 3 from 5-8 pm. An artist conversation will be on Saturday, March 10 at 3 pm. Other visits may be arranged by calling or texting Haley-Henman at 214-532-3225.

Gisa Elwazir says, “The title Facades is drumming up the Trump era by questioning Fake News, Human Rights Survival, the means of being Evangelical, the further Denigrating of Politicians and Women Rights issues. It is befitting the title by way of interpreting Facade, which means ‘Face’ meaning of the front or face of a building, but alternatively Facade can also be connected to Fake, which would mean something superficial or a misinterpretation that is used to conceal something. It shouts out: Appearance, Show, How it looks! But Facade is more than meets the eye.”

Visits by appointment, please call or text 214-532-3225

February 13
Ron Mueck’s hyper-real sculptures of the human figure are tender portrayals of people in their most intimate, isolated and vulnerable moments. Manchester Art Gallery on the 2008 ARTIST ROOMS exhibition featuring the work of Ron Mueck
Charlie Clarke, Ron Mueck’s long-time exhibition manager, is in conversation with the Modern‘s Senior Curator, Andrea Karnes as they discuss the work and career of Ron Mueck, from his first acclaimed sculpture, Dead Dad, to his most recent installation of 100 giant skulls, Mass, with a particular focus on the works in the Modern‘s exhibition Ron MueckAfter gaining international attention with Dead Dad in the controversial and popular exhibition Sensation in 1997, Mueck’s first one-person show was at Anthony d’Offay Gallery in 1998. As stated for a recent exhibition at the Sara Hildén Art Museum in Finland, “Mueck has since shown himself to be a major sculptor whose work elicits an immediate emotional response. . .. Mueck’s subject matter – for all its universality – is deeply private, concerning the unspoken thoughts and feelings of all human beings.”

For this Tuesday Evenings presentation, serving as a preview for the exhibition Ron Mueck, which opens February 16, Clarke relays stories of his experiences with the artist and sheds light on the processes and decisions that infuse Mueck’s extraordinary sculptures with an enduring quality that leaves viewers entranced.

February 20
 
Awareness can feel like a bright island in an ocean of namelessness. The unthought and the unseen wash the shores, leaching into the ground of the mind under sagging frames of reference. There is endless erosion of the coastline, a subversive give-and-take. Objects are soaked with feelings and their identities compromised. Abstractions are contaminated. 
“Land” in Land, ed. Carroll Dunham (New York: Nolan/Eckman Gallery, 1989). Reprinted in Into Words: The Selected Writings of Carroll Dunham
Carroll Dunham, an important New York-based artist working in painting, drawing, and printmaking, discusses his practice, from coming into his own in the late 1970s to his current contributions as a maker and a writer within the continuum of art. Known for a conceptual approach, which includes aspects of abstraction and representation, Dunham is admired, especially by fellow artists, for his authentic and unyielding pursuit of consequential artworks. The artist Paul Chan confirms this admiration in his Publisher’s Foreword for the recently released book Into Words: The Selected Writings of Carroll Dunham: “I have admired Carroll Dunham’s work for many years. I still remember vividly his painting in America Is Hard to See, the inaugural exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art’s new building in 2015. When I entered the room where it hung, I gasped. The painting was at once exuberant, provocative, and entrancing. It literally took my breath.”
This Tuesday Evenings presentation is a special opportunity to hear from one of contemporary art’s most imperative voices and gain insights into a career that developed through a sensitivity to the past, an astute awareness of the present, and a personal insistence on making what needs to be made.

Cindi Holt: Inside Looking Out opens Sat., Feb. 3 at Valley House

Join us for the opening reception for “Cindi Holt: Inside Looking Out” this Saturday, February 3, 6:00pm–8:00pm. View images of paintings in the exhibition online at www.valleyhouse.com

Cindi Holt is a self-taught artist who was first inspired to paint in 1985 when she was 34 years of age. Her richly-detailed paintings are imaginative, carefree responses to a place. Even the formal rooms she painted of the Texas Governor’s Mansion in the 1990’s have an energetic warp described by Clint Willour, “Patterns are chalk-a-block: bumping into one another; climbing over each other; jostling for space. Flowers on tables mate with those in the carpet and in paintings on the wall. Furniture takes on human form: chairs bow and tables stand on tiptoe…”

Central Market commissioned Cindi Holt to paint a three-panel panorama of the highlights of Fort Worth for their Fort Worth store, and a four-part mural for their cafe at the Preston Royal location in Dallas. The original paintings are on view at The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History and the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, respectively. Her painting “The Red Room” graced the 2004 Christmas card from The White House.

Cindi Holt is a California native who lives in Fort Worth and has been represented by Valley House Gallery since 2003.

Cindi Holt will give an Artist Talk on Saturday, February 17, at 11:00am.

The exhibition will be on view through March 10, 2018.

Color Me… Contemporary! Feb. 3 at Southwest Gallery

In celebration of contemporary art Southwest Gallery cordially invites you to
 
COLOR ME CONTEMPORARY
Saturday, February 3rd  from 1-5 pm
 
MEET THE ARTISTS
 and experience their colorful new works!
4500 Sigma Rd.  Dallas, Texas 75244    972.960.8935    800.272.9910   www.swgallery.com

Paul Walden refers to “Apparent Chaos” when viewing his paintings in a limited sense. They appear chaotic but the subconscious elements create order and harmony within the composition. “The repetition of the painting & the layering techniques I have developed are the tools that allow the perceptions of an underlying order to emerge.”

Mark Whitmarsh creates relationships that excite the eye through exploration of light, color and space.  “As I build layers of color, a personal iconography evolves on the painted surface.”

Tony Saladino‘s use of color and subject matter make for beautifully executed works that are not only pleasing to the eye but thought-provoking as well. “I try to use each medium’s scale and characteristics to its advantage, to give my imagination an avenue which can explore truth on a two dimensional plane.

Dennis Johnson‘s paintings do not have to relate to anything or follow rules. It simply invites us to think, to reflect, to open our mind to the possibility that all art has to do is make us feel.

Rachel Meginnes + Kelly O’Briant: What Remains opens Feb. 1 at Haggerty Gallery in Irving

New Exhibition | Rachel Meginnes + Kelly O’Briant: What Remains

Please join us for the opening reception of What Remains on Thursday, February 1, 5:30-8 p.m.

  • Artist talk | 5:30 to 6 p.m., Art History Auditorium
  • Reception | 6 to 8:00 p.m., Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery

What Remains speaks to both visual and conceptual depth – of the inherent memory embedded in the works of artist-educator Rachel Meginnes and Kelly O’Briant, assistant professor of ceramics, at the University of Dallas. For Meginnes, actual material, in the form of reclaimed textiles, forms the foundation of her process, a physical and metaphorical layering of wear and re-adapting, moving forward and revealing the past. In the work of O’Briant, the remainders are often phantom forms – a chimaera or abstraction of scientific theory. Her work in ceramics has explored the notions of dark matter, light and shadow, the passage of time. For this exhibition, O’Briant mines the emotional effect of unsettlement and reconstruction – the physical act of carrying the past forward.

We are delighted that both artists will be on campus to give an artist presentation at the reception on Thursday, Feb.1 at 5:30 p.m. in the Haggar Auditorium in the Art Village on the University of Dallas campus, followed by a reception in the gallery. The exhibition is available for viewing through Saturday, Mar. 3, 2018.  

This exhibition is curated by Kathryn Gremley, Director of Penland Galler and travels to us from the Penland School of Craft in North Carolina. To view an online catalog of the show and for more information on the great work they do at Penland visit here.
