deadWEST: STRUCTURE AND CHANGE is an exhibition of artists working in a variety of media that takes place in Winter Rusiloski and Angel Fernandez’s studio. DeadWEST: GALLERY AND STUDIO was conceived as an alternative artist space in North Texas, with a location that is due west of the Dallas and Fort Worth Cultural Districts. Rusiloski is a transplant of the Northeastern United States to Texas, and Fernandez is a transplant of Mexico to Texas, to the Northeast and back to Texas. This is their third curatorial collaboration where numerous themes percolate throughout the works of selected artists; the two dominant themes are STRUCTURE and CHANGE.

Numerous artists address physical and geometric STRUCTURE within their work. The varied media is given a permanent and solid quality while others defy specific definition in their use of atmospheric and fleeting characteristics. Material is of paramount importance in the embrace of craftsmanship and process.

CHANGE is a dominant theme in regard to transformation of materials. Some are repurposed constructions born from discarded elements while others contextualize materials in unexpected ways.  In addition to physical CHANGE there is an exploration of shifting social and cultural dynamics.

Saturday, October 15, 7-10pm

“Enfolding represents my research into the burgeoning field of Bio Art. The sculptures and paintings in this series are meditations. Existing somewhere between absurdity and scientific discourse, they act as analogies to the cross disciplinarian work and research taking place in the fields of art and science.”
– Val Curry, 2016




October 15 – November 12, 20161501 South Ervay in The Cedars



Saturday, October 15, 7-10pm


Angel Cabrales presents ‘OPERATION: AL PASTOR,’ an exhibition which places its focus on the social impact of Mexican culture and its recent presence in conservative politics. Cabrales satirically reframes the taco as a symbol of cultural power, reimagining “TACO” as an acronym for “Tactically Appetizing Culinary Offensive” that has successfully infiltrated American culture by way of American stomachs.

PAUL MANES – ‘HAREM’ opens Oct. 15 at Cris Worley


Paul Manes, Tathātā, 2016, oil on canvas, 78 x 84 inches




October 15th – November 12th
 Saturday, October 15th from 5 – 8pm
Cris Worley Fine Arts is proud to announce its third solo exhibition with American artist, Paul Manes, entitled Harem. An opening reception for the artist will be held at the gallery,Saturday, October 15th, from 5-8pm. The show will run through Saturday, November 12th.
Paul Manes, Harem, 2016, oil on canvas, 78 x 104 inches
In recent years Manes’ practice has focused on vast representational subject matter: stacked and tumbling bowls, foreshortened piles of fresh cut logs, reflective pools of raindrops, fighter planes, and rugged swamps. In Harem, we see the development of an idea that was in its seedling stages in his previous exhibition at CWFA. A single painting, 78 x 104 inches, entitled, Hieder’s Balance, now in a private collection in Dallas, would be the springboard for a new endeavor into the elusive, floating web, featured entirely in this latest body of works. Manes explains, “Some of my recent paintings involve a screen or net, which implies a separation between two things. That is the lie. What reveals and what is revealed are the same thing. Without the revealer there would be no revealed.” In fact, this Buddhist philosophy, of the inevitable interconnectedness of all, is a theme well known to the artist and has persisted in various manifestations throughout his oeuvre.
Harem also comes on the heels of a monumental international exhibition in Brussels, Belgium, in September 2016, curated by art historian and filmmaker, Barbara Rose, in conjunction with the City of Brussels, and Roberto Polo Gallery. Paul Manes is one of eight American and eight Belgian artists featured together. Rose firmly establishes that the artists in the Painting After Postmodernism exhibition are making an important contribution to the continuum of the history of painting, asserting that,  “…painting as an autonomous discipline can still make fresh, convincing statements as a living, evolving, significant art form that communicates humanistic values in an increasingly inhuman, technology driven globally networked world.”
Manes has had an extensive career. He studied fine art at both Lamar University in Beaumont, TX and at the Graduate School of Fine Arts, Hunter College, New York. Domestically, he has shown cross-country, in museums and galleries alike, including in Los Angeles, New York, Palm Beach, Atlanta, New Orleans, Beaumont, Austin, Dallas, and Houston. Internationally, Manes has exhibited in Milan, Monte Carlo, Rome, Paris, Bologna, Munich, and most recently in Brussels, Belgium, in the epic, Painting After Postmodernism exhibition, curated by Barbara Rose. Manes’ work is frequently collected in both the public and private sectors, and can be found in the collections of: the Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Art Museum of Southeast Texas; Yoko Ono and Emeril Lagasse. His monumental work, The Entry of Christ into New York II, was most recently acquired for the lobby of the Hôtel de Ville (City Hall), in Brussels, Belgium.
Cris Worley Fine Arts is located at: 1845 Levee Street # 110, Dallas, TX 75207
Gallery Hours are Tuesday – Saturday from 11am – 5pm and by appointment.

Dallas Contemporary: Laercio Redondo, Pedtro Reyes and Bruce Weber




Past Projects for the Future


For Future Reference


Far From Home


161 Glass Street, Dallas Texas 75207

Laercio Redondo Memory from Brasília, 2012.

Laercio Redondo Memory from Brasília, 2012.

BRUCE WEBER Dallas Contemporary is pleased to present “Far From Home,” a new exhibition by the American photographer Bruce Weber. Over the past four decades, Weber has traveled the globe to produce groundbreaking and occasionally controversial imagery for the fashion industry’s leading publications and brands. From Vietnam to South Africa, Morocco to Brazil and beyond, Weber has consistently imagined his fashion sittings as the starting point for a broader exploration of each location’s vibrant culture and unique characters. In addition to over 250 photographs—a majority of which have never been exhibited—“Far From Home” will feature a selection of Weber’s travelrelated short film works. This Dallas Contemporary exhibition will be the largest presentation of Weber’s work since his 1999 survey at the National Portrait Gallery in London. A new catalog will accompany the opening of the exhibition.

Photographer and filmmaker Bruce Weber first rose to international prominence in the early eighties on the success of images that combined classical styling with more visceral underpinnings of desire, mood, and sexuality. His ability to construct a seamless sense of romance and drama created the central public images for fashion houses like Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Versace, Abercrombie and Fitch and Louis Vuitton, as well as earning him an enduring presence as a contributor to magazines at the very highest levels in the industry. Throughout his career, Weber continues to work in various forms–he has directed seven short and feature length films, published 39 books, and has held more than 60 exhibitions world-wide–extending his lifelong exploration of the nature of human relationships.

The exhibition is curated by Peter Doroshenko, Executive Director of Dallas Contemporary


One of the foremost contemporary artists in Brazil, Laercio Redondo uses his work to unearth hidden
memories. Redondo has exhibited widely in South America and Europe, and Dallas Contemporary is
pleased to present his first United States exhibition. Redondo creates installations and multimedia
works that emerge from his deep research into cultural dynamics, Brazilian architecture and its
practitioners. In this exhibition he examines such important Brazilian figures as Athos Bulcão, Lina Bo
Bardi and Lota de Macedo Soares.

Central to the exhibition is a new film installation, Detour, that traverses the distance between
Flamengo Park designed by de Macedo Soares, where the main art museum in Rio de Janiero is
located, and Casa Samambaia, de Macedo Soares’ private home outside the city, in the hills of
Petrópolis. The soundtrack of the film brings attention to the architect’s conspicuous absence from
Brazilian collective memory. The piece exemplifies Redondo’s ability to illuminate the implications of
collective forgetting – which he positions as both specific to Brazil and universal. Other important
historical figures evoked in the exhibition are artist Athos Bulcão, and architect Lina Bo Bardi.
Bulcão is highlighted in the video Retoque. In this work a tile mural by Bulcão is translated into a
musical score. In a video work titled The Glass House we see documentation of Bo Bardi’s iconic
home on two occasions, one in 1999 and the other in 2008. It brings attention to the lived-in nature
of the home, in contrast to being seen as an architectural remnant.
Laercio Redondo was born in 1967 in Brazil and is currently based between Rio de Janeiro and
Stockholm, Sweden. He received his MFA at Konstfack, University of Art, Crafts and Design in
Stockholm, Sweden. He has had solo exhibitions internationally in Spain, Germany, and Cuba in
addition to Brazil.

The exhibition is curated by Justine Ludwig, Director of Exhibitions and Senior Curator of Dallas


Pedro Reyes’ show at Dallas Contemporary explores the legacy of Greek statuary and Greek
philosophy, creating a bridge between sculpture and systems of thought. This exhibition comprises
recent works by the artist made in stone in combination with some previous works where he has
dealt with the use of space and volumes to organize ideas such as the case of Philosophical Casino,
a set of dices that feature quotes from philosophers and are meant to be used as an oracle in a
participatory event. A recent sculpture, Plato’s Cave, uses the famous allegory of the philosopher
and translates it into an architectural space. Reyes pays homage to other key figures in Philosophy
such as Epicurus and Socrates in stone-carved busts where he finds a middle-way between
abstraction and figuration, modern and ancient languages, primitive totemism and modern art. In
Colloquium, speech bubbles made in marble interlock in the style of a house of cards; an allegory of
polyphony representing voices, opinions, languages and emotions.

As a further study of sculpture, in
the series Flat Statues, the artist has re-worked photographs of statuary from different geographies
and historical periods, which he has printed on cloth, cut, and reassembled on a canvas.
Pedro Reyes was born in Mexico City in 1972, where he lives and works. He studied architecture at
the Ibero-American University in Mexico City. Solo exhibitions include Hammer Museum, Los Angeles
(2014); ICA, Miami (2014); The Power Plant, Toronto (2014); Whitechapel Gallery, London
(2013); Walker Art Center, Minneapolis (2011); Guggenheim Museum, New York (2011); CCA
Kitakyushu, Japan (2009); Bass Museum, Miami (2008) and San Francisco Art Institute (2008).
Group exhibitions include Beijing Biennale, Beijing (2014), documenta 13, Kassel, Germany (2013),
Liverpool Biennial, UK (2012), Gwangju Biennial, South Korea (2012), Lyon Biennale, France (2009)
and the 50th Venice Biennale (2003).

The exhibition is curated by Justine Ludwig, Director of Exhibitions and Senior Curator of Dallas

Quasi-scientist and self-taught artist, Patrick Turk explores the mysteries of the universe in his highly detailed and imaginative hand-cut paper assemblages. Images taken from any number of resources including: science-fiction novels, encyclopedias, history and scientific diagrams, are cut and assembled in oftentimes multidimensional surfaces to create a curious and dark narrative. Says Turk, “The intense levels of detail become a microcosm, forming a reflection of the human relationship to the plasticity of time and space, and to the process of self-unfolding.”
This latest body of work consists of 10 five-sided, three-dimensional assemblages, each referencing various pictorial interpretations of the Garden of Eden, a subject matter endeavored by artists throughout the history of art. Turk says that he chose the topic rather fluidly. “It really just started when I found these beautiful images of foliage… I thought, wouldn’t it be cool to do The Garden of Eden?”
Patrick Turk was born in Galveston, Texas and lives and works in Houston. His assemblages have been exhibited throughout Houston in galleries including Art Storm, Lawndale Art Center and Rudolph/Projects/Art Scan as well as galleries in Galveston, Texas and Los Angeles, California. In 2013, he was an Artist in Residence at the Lawndale Art Center. His works have been published several times in Mung Being Magazine and include high profile commissions for the 2009 Houston Art Car Parade Poster as well as the Philokalia album cover by Golden Cities. Patrick Turk will be one of 60 artists included in the forthcoming book, The Art of Found Objects: Interviews with Texas Artists (Texas A&M Press), authored Robert Craig Bunch, and released in the fall of 2016. He will also be featured in the concurrent exhibition, The Art of Found Objects, held at Lone Star College – Kingwood in November 2016.
Cris Worley Fine Arts is located at: 1845 Levee Street # 110, Dallas, TX 75207
Gallery Hours are Tuesday – Saturday from 11am – 5pm and by appointment.

Matthew Bourbon and Ashley Whitt – Opening Aug. 27th




August 27 – October 1, 2016

Opening Reception: Saturday, August 27th from 6:00pm – 8:00pm



Different Versions of You, 2016. 39 x 29 inches. Acrylic on Canvas


Dallas, August 2016

Kirk Hopper Fine Art (3008 Commerce Street) is excited to announce our first solo exhibition for artist Matthew Bourbon, entitled IF. Bourbon’s paintings sit in an uncomfortable limbo between heady ideas and dumb form. “How to paint the things of life is a chronic issue that seems somehow relevant with how to actually be in the world,” Matthew states.  He is after a kind of painting that is filled with all the contradictions one sees in everyday life. The exhibition opensSaturday, August 27th with a public reception for the artist from 6.00 – 8.00p.

Matthew Bourbon’s paintings exploit color and narrative, stirring convoluted memories that allow the viewer to compose moot stories.  Skepticism is the bedrock of his relationship to art. For the organization of this show the artist thought of creating and bringing work together, less to “say” one large thing, but rather like the range of songs on an old-fashioned music album.  Each painting he makes is a thing in and of itself and also shares company with the others.  He wants his art to embody a mystery of intent.  “I am assembling several puzzles without the comfort of a simple key or a concise guide,” he states.  Bourbon intends the paintings to push us back on ourselves, so we are left to reconcile what we see in the paintings with our own personal histories and experience.  That’s not to say there is no direction in his work—it is just found in some strange combination of his interests and the ebb and flow of the painting process.

Matthew Bourbon is an artist and writer.  Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Bourbon earned separate undergraduate degrees in Studio Art and Art History from the University of California at Davis.  Relocating to New York City, Bourbon earned his Masters of Fine Arts degree from the School of Visual Arts. Since then, his art has been exhibited nationally and internationally. 




August 27 – October 1, 2016

Opening Reception: Saturday, August 27th from 6:00pm – 8:00pm

An Ordered Chaos #27 (Nest), 2016.

Archival Inkjet Print, 20 x 20 inches in 32 by 32 inch frame.  Edition 1 of 5


Dallas, August 2016

Kirk Hopper Fine Art (3008 Commerce Street) is pleased to announce our inaugural show in our project space for artist Ashley Whitt, entitled SYSTEMS. The artist will debut photographs from her new series, An Ordered Chaos. The exhibition opens Saturday, August 27th with a public reception for the artist from 6.00 – 8.00p.

An Ordered Chaos explores the dichotomy between order and chaos within the universe and within the self. Using a flatbed scanner as a camera, surreal environments are created using objects such as hair, thread, plants, and grid paper. These objects serve as symbols for order and chaos within each constructed image.

Tension and harmony between order and chaos exist within the self and the cosmos. These paradoxes include the order of the solar systems versus the exploding of stars, or the order of scheduling your day versus the chaos of traumatic events or depression. Eventually some scientists believe the universe will become dark and empty as the last stars die, before returning to chaos. Similarly, the feeling of the darkness of depression can empty the self before the chaos of confronting an issue. An Ordered Chaos considers this correlation between the inner self and outer space as well as our desires to control and make sense of life and death.

Ashley Whitt graduated from Texas Woman’s University where she earned her MFA in Photography in 2012. She graduated from UT Arlington with a BFA in Photography in 2009. Ashley currently teaches in the Dallas/Fort Worth area for Dallas County and Collin County Community Colleges. She is also a member of 500X, one of the oldest artist cooperative galleries in Texas. Her work has been shown locally, nationally, and internationally including Texas, Vermont, California, China, and India.

Kirk Hopper Fine Art is located at

3008 Commerce Street, Dallas, Texas 75226 in the Deep Ellum neighborhood.

Gallery hours are TuesdaySaturday from 12pm – 6pm or by appointment.

Richard Ross: Hiraeth opens August 25 at Kettle Art


Kettle Art is proud to present ‘Hiraeth’ featuring works by Richard Ross with special guest Jesse Sierra Hernandez. The exhibit opens on Thursday, August 25, 7:00 – 10:00PM, and runs through Saturday, September 17. Kettle Art is located at 2650-B Main Street in Deep Ellum.
What can be said about Richard Ross and his work that has not been said before… Genius? Prolific? Mystifying? Mythical? Collectable? These words, and many more, all ring true to countless art lovers throughout the DFW metroplex.  “All I can tell you is that Kettle Art got extremely lucky that Spring day in 2006 when Richard walked in to drop off some work for an open group show.  During the install, four or five pieces sold before they even got up off the floor” recalls gallery owner Frank Campagna. ‘” had to call him to ask if he had more.” To make a long story short, he did, and promptly delivered several additional pieces of his ‘whimsical masterpieces’ before the opening. In all, Richard Ross’ works clearly resonate with those who see them, and these viewers can’t help but be charmed.
Richard L. Ross, Artist Statement:Ross-a conversation with fear

intense form of longing or nostalgia

As I come upon my 50th year as a traveler on the road to the store, I’m taking a moment to stop and remember some of the milestones along the way. I’ll be hosting a reflective show of my art work, along with a very special guest Jesse Sierra Hernandez, who helped me on this journey 20 years ago while we were both working out of Fort Worth Artist and Co. and St. Mary’s artist studios.

Richard L. Ross, Artist Bio:
Ross is a self-taught artist from Irving, Texas with a degree in history from the University of Dallas. He began forming his artistic voice in the atmosphere of the early hardcore punk scene of Dallas.  During this time, he found glimpses of beauty in the chaos of specific moments, and the    to question the grand narratives that had formed his life’s early foundations. Ross developed his own metanarrative which he has called “The Road to the Store”, based on the Kantian concept that beliefs are formed from the question “what can I hope”. Ross sees himself as a traveller along the road, with this question motivating his destination as one going to the store to shop for basic needs and desires.  In his body of work, Ross has created a symbolistic cast of characters who play out his narrative in beautiful glimpses of the chaos and uncertainty within the journey.

Pablo Picasso: Ceramics
November 12, 2016 through February 12, 2017

One of the most iconic artists of the Twentieth Century, Pablo Picasso was introduced to ceramics in his mid sixties, and instantly immersed himself in the medium. Working of the Madoura Pottery in Southern France, he was given free rein to design as the mood struck him. Although known his paintings, sculptures, and graphics, the Spanish artist spent 25 years near the end of his life developing these ceramic pieces that speak to his imagination, wit, and quest for new and innovative ways to weave beauty and utility into a harmonious fabric.

This exhibit is thanks to the Rosenbaum Collection.

Shayema Rahim and Lesli Robertson open at JM Gallery July 30


Please join us this Saturday, July 30 from 5 until 8, for an opening reception featuring work by Shayema Rahim and Lesli Robertson.

JM Gallery presents the work of two women who find beauty in unexpected materials. Lesli Robertson fuses concrete and textiles in provocative objects that force us to question the boundaries between brutal strength and refined delicacy. In works featured in this show, Lesli uses detritus from her life and studio, including woven pieces, broken forms, and pieces cut from earlier works to create “Remnants,” a series of new forms that document and comment on the material objects that define the work of her hands.

Shayema Rahim transforms drab wax into brilliantly colored encaustic paintings, full of emotion and spirit, that reveal her passion and let us share it with her. Painting in encaustic combines beeswax, resin, and pigment into deep, complex layers and allows Shayema to create lyrical works whose textures, colors, and patterns evoke the rhythm and tone of music and to express the emotional struggles and joys that have defined her as a person and an artist.


ABOUT JM GALLERY // JM Gallery offers works of art on paper and sculptural forms that engage both the eye and the mind. The gallery promotes artists who create smart, visually compelling work and showcases their art in a space that is inviting and accessible. JM Gallery is committed to working closely with artists as they develop their work and careers and to developing lasting relationships with collectors. In collaboration with area schools and non-profits, they enrich the creative community by teaching artists and collectors about navigating the complex world of art.

Art Room Exhibition “THREE,” opening July 9th

Artwork:Daryl Ganon, The Extent of an Unpredicted Event, 30“ x 40”, Acrylic on canvas.

On exhibit July 9th –  27th
Opening July 9th @ 5pm
With Reception 6-9pm
Food, drinks, and music provided

Art Room is pleased to announce its upcoming group exhibition entitled “THREE,” representing the work of local, regional, and national artists including: Chubrika, Drigo, Daryl Gannon, Zachary Greer, Usama Khalid, Shawn Vales, Robert Weiss, and Jave Yoshimoto.

The work in “THREE” is best described as colorful globalization that recognizes and identifies with our current political culture and climate. With the help of the Internet and the constant bombardment of information from electronic media, the artists showing work in “THREE” are taking advantage of the accessibility of material no longer prohibited. This fast-paced exchange of information is driving these artists to quickly deliver their version of the story to the viewer. The artists in “THREE” are creating work within current Social Art Movements inspired by previous artistic endeavors. Chubrika, Greer, and Khalid explore issues concerning sensitive or controversial subjects resulting in work with a psychological impact that both tortures and keeps us asking for more.

“THREE” will run through July 27, 2016. Gallery hours are by appointment only. For additional information please contact Nathan Madrid, Katie Murray, or Deedra Baker atartroomfw@gmail.com, and visit our website www.artroom.space for more information about upcoming shows and to join our mailing list. An exhibition catalog will be available for purchase.
