Summer Art Festival opening August 11 at The Artists Showplace Gallery

The Artists Showplace Gallery is celebrating the season with three hot contemporary artists: Randy Jacobs, Kathy Metcalf and Christina Yielding, and book sculptor Keith Kriegel.

The exhibit runs from Friday, August 11 through Thursday, August 31. A reception to meet the artists and watch live demonstrations will be held on Friday, August 11, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Complimentary wine and appetizers will be served.

Shortly after 9/11, self-taught artist Randy Jacobs turned to painting as an expression of his overwhelming emotions. He is best known for his multiple layers of texture. His mediums range from acrylic to mixed media, including ink, watercolor and iridescence.

Book sculptor Keith Kriegel, a graduate of the Baylor College of Dentistry, loves the attention to detail that book carving requires. Using a surgical blade, he enjoys discovering what is hidden behind each page.

A native of Dallas, Kathy Metcalf says that at the turn of the 21st century, she found herself in fervent need of self-expression. Completely self-taught, she views painting as a “catharsis for the soul” that gives her a sense of peace and joy. Her work is bold in color and texture.

Christina Yielding’s innovative techniques for creating her mixed-media paintings include using a variety of scrapers rather than brushes. Painting solely on wood, Christina builds a custom frame around every dynamic piece. Her work has been featured in solo and group shows throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Black and White & Read all Over opens July 27 at Kettle Art

Kettle Art proudly presents ‘Black & White and Read all Over’ featuring Illustrators Brad Albright, William Bubba’ Flint and Miguel ‘Miggy’ Aguilar. Illustrations are everywhere. In the papers, on the web, on products, on billboards and more. They instruct, amuse, infuriate, tell us what to buy /where to go, and overall are an integral part of our lives. The three artists we present come from three diverse areas of illustration and essentially cover all previously mentioned aspects of living in America.

This show runs through August 19, 2017

About the Artists

Brad Albright is a multidisciplinary artist, illustrator, and merch designer working with leading licenses in music, entertainment, and publishing. Guided by a lifelong love of drawing, his specialties include album cover illustration and 3D poster design for retro red/blue glasses. As inspired by music, comics, literature and movies, his line-art illustrations often revel in science fiction, horror, and Wild West genres. The pieces on display include gig posters, personal illustrations, and pop-culture inspired poster art, most of which are presented in 3D with provided glasses.

William Bubba Flint recieved his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Southern Methodist University. His Editorial Cartoons appear in The Dallas Morning News, The Dallas Cowboys Star magazine, The Katy Trail Weekly, The White Rock Lake Weekly, Park Cities People, Preston Hollow People and Amusement Today. Flint has also illustrated six children books. Artist Statement: I describe my work as Future Paintings of the Past! I find inspiration from all areas of Pop Culture. Childhood memories constantly creep into my paintings. With a nod to Pop Surrealism, Lowbrow and Underground, I want the paintings to give a quick glimpse into a universe that almost makes you smile…

Miguel “Miggy” Aguilar has been part of the Dallas underground since the early 2000’s when he introduced his first three comic books under the title of “Mr. Zombie”. After that he started showing his lowbrow artwork at bars around the Deep Ellum area. He was invited to show in his first gallery show at Nine Eyes Gallery in the winter of 2005 where he met the artist & future gallery owner Frank Campagna of the great Kettle Art. In addition to the lowbrow ink style work that has made him a regular feature at the gallery he has continued to work in the comic book medium, done fliers for bands and is now showing interest as a fine art painter, some of which will be featured in this show.

About the Artist: http://www.ro2art.com/carol-trice-short-story-series.html/

Carol Trice’s textile paintings evoke a familiar sensation of connectedness, illustrating the intersections and ties that are found in interpersonal relationships. Her bold, thick lines are emblematic of the fleeting and the sometimes intense interactions that people encounter on a regular basis. Her works are made using dense black thread that intersects and laces along a gridded background. Some of the pieces are methodical while others are disorderly, mimicking the experience of human interaction, whether brief or prolonged. Carol Trice’s pieces are exquisitely representative of daily colloquies.

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.

Kirk Hopper Exhibit: TXMX – DANIELA CAVAZOS MADRIGAL | ANALISE MINJAREZ | SARITA WESTRUP

OPENING IN JULY

CLOSING RECEPTION Saturday, August 12, 2017

 

TXMX

DANIELA CAVAZOS MADRIGAL | ANALISE MINJAREZ | SARITA WESTRUP

July 15 – August 12, 2017

 

Kirk Hopper Fine Art (3008 Commerce Street) is pleased to present a three-person exhibit featuring artists Daniela Cavazos Madrigal (San Antonio), Analise Minjarez (Denton), and Sarita Westrup (Dallas). The show opens on July 15 and runs through August 12, with a closing reception from 6.00 – 8.00 p.m.Saturday, August 12.

 

Using unconventional materials such as cement, wire, and discarded textiles, artists Daniela Cavazos Madrigal, Analise Minajrez, and Sarita Westrup tackle issues of migration, cultural identity, and the fracturing of our communal fabric. All three artists grew up in border towns of Texas and each explores the truths of the migrant trajectory.

 

Daniela Cavazos Madrigal sources discarded clothing from warehouses in her native Laredo (which sells mounds of clothing by the pound) and embroiders lyrics from popular corridos, Mexican narrative themed ballads about oppression and daily life. Madrigal doesn’t view these items as just clothing but as deeply personal artifacts that are symbolic of identity and shelter, and as stand-ins for the human body.  Daniela states, “My body of work is built around the illusive notion of the American Dream.” The understanding that inequity is systematic and difference is often met with hostility is the driving force behind the conception her work.

Analise Minjarez incorporates found objects, textiles, and native crops to evoke a minimalistic aesthetic that echos the beauty and fragility of life on desolate borderlands. Most recently, Minijarez has been exploring the ideas of nets as both a textile binding technique and as a symbol for the sky and stars shared between two countries. Analise states, “I engage in the repetition of net making to contemplate both the tension necessary to create the knots of a net and the social strain between people living on separated land. In addition, the net, although commonly perceived as a barrier, provides portholes of cultural and social understanding.”

 

In addition to using natural found material, Sarita Westrup experiments with man-made materials such as plastics, cement, and wire, materials that can all be found peppered throughout the border landscape. Westrup casts plastic water bottles and jugs out of cement, evoking sentimental offerings to those who have made the journey across the border. Westrup’s materials reference Mexican American identity and border trafficking, and question stability along the border region.

Jay Wilkinson at Fort Works Art

everyone poops
Los Fantasmas Ambulantes

June 28 – July 29, 2017

OPENING RECEPTIONS was June 28
Artist Jay Wilkinson, deals in the exploration of the human condition and the intrinsic similarities that exist amongst us all. Utilizing portraiture, he deconstructs his works in hopes of revealing the soft and emotional underbelly that exists in the viewer, and not the person represented in his paintings. This is achieved in his use of blocking out sections of the individuals faces creating a tension and allowing the viewer to place themselves into the work. This instantaneous nostalgia in conjunction with his powerful use of negative space through abstraction, is what sets his work apart from other oil painters of his genre.
Fort Works Art is committed to bringing life, vitality and energy to the art scene in Fort Worth, TX. They are a resource for both seasoned collectors and the everyday individual. Existing somewhere between a gallery, a cultural center and a museum, Fort Works Art strives to continually evolve into its own entity, free from the traditional labels of the art world.

FUTURE GLOW Reception Sept. 9th at Cris Worley

 

FUTURE GLOW
SEPTEMBER 9 – OCTOBER 7, 2017
Opening Reception:  
Saturday, September 9th from 5pm – 8pm
Cris Worley Fine Arts
1845 Levee St. #110
Dallas, TX 75207
Cris Worley Fine Arts is proud to present Future Glow, our third solo exhibition with Trey Egan, opening with an artist’s reception on Saturday, September 9th, from 5 to 8 p.m. Future Glow will include large-scale paintings in oil on canvas. The exhibition will be on view through October 7.
Trey Egan’s abstract compositions are known primarily for their method of creation, in which Egan translates the rhythms of contemporary electronic music into rich channels of color. This working method allows Egan to delve into his subconscious and deconstruct the digitally produced musical compositions, then re-materialize the sounds in pigmented tactile maneuvers. His work creates an effect of self-organized, indefinite, organic bursts on canvas, reminiscent of formative 20th century abstract expressionist painters.
According to the artist, “I have been thinking about the layering of sounds in a musical composition and how they can be compared to the layers of my paintings.” The bliss Egan finds in electronic genres, such as progressive trance, future bass, and liquid dubstep, allows him to continue the development of a singular visual language that deals with the relationship between the subconscious and physical space. His energetic canvases invite the viewer to perceive the lush swatches of color, activating their own memories and experiences.
Trey Egan gained his Master of Fine Art in 2013 from the University of North Texas College of Visual Art and
Design. Following Egan’s debut in 2012 at ArtHouston he was selected to exhibit at the 2013 Texas Biennial in San Antonio. Egan has participated in many juried group exhibitions including some juried by: Peter Doroshenko (Executive Director, Dallas Contemporary), Toby Kamps (Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, The Menil Collection), Clint Willour (Curator Emeritus, Galveston Arts Center), and artists Annette Lawrence, Vincent Falsetta, and Erick Swenson among others. His work can be found in numerous private and public collections including Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP, Kristin Farmer Autism Center, The Landes Group, Trive Capital, and the UT Southwestern William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital.

INTRODUCTIONS June 24 – August 26 at CWFA!

INTRODUCTIONS
MARC DENNIS | ADRIAN ESPARZA | SHERRY OWENS | ROBERT SAGERMAN

EXHIBITION DATES

June 24th – August 26th, 2017

OPENING RECEPTION  Saturday, June 24th from 5 – 8pm

Adrian Esparza, Sunroof, 2017, sarape, nails, wood, enamel, 82 x 164 inches

1845 LEVEE STREET, SUITE 110 | DALLAS, TX 75207

Cris Worley Fine Arts is pleased to introduce four new artists in this Summer’s upcoming exhibition, Introductions. Marc Dennis, Adrian Esparza, Sherry Owens, and Robert Sagerman display radical and unique talents in sculpture and painting. A reception will be held Sat., June 24, from 5 to 8 pm. The exhibit continues through August 26.

Marc Dennis (Brooklyn): Hyper-realist artist Marc Dennis brings levity, humor and virtuosity to his sumptuous oil paintings. The artist cites Southern European figurative masters such as Caravaggio, Velasquez, and Manet, and Northern European still-life masters, such as Bosschaert, Davidsz de Heem, and Rachel Ruysch as influences. Dennis’ paintings often depict subjects from the art historical canon infused with contemporary themes to form a critical perspective. The juxtaposition of pop-cultural iconography and artistic masterpieces subverts our sanctified views of art history’s most noble subjects.

Dennis received his BFA from The Tyler School of Art of Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and his MFA from The University of Texas at Austin. Over a dozen high profile private and public collections across the U.S. possess works by Marc Dennis. These include the collections of Larry Gagosian, Larry and Marilyn Fields, Bill and Maria Bell, and Glenn and Amanda Fuhrman. Public collections include The Rockwell Museum of Western Art, The Jack S. Blanton Museum of Art, and the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University.

Adrian Esparza (El Paso): Adrian Esparza explores material culture by “re-instilling lost value in found objects.” Esparza has inspired international attention through his deconstruction of the Mexican sarape. The artist reconstructs geometric forms using colorful thread from the sarape. Drawing inspiration from modern architecture, physical landscapes, and mid-century minimalist artists, Esparza depicts dramatic one and two-point perspectives to form striking dimensionality and volume.

Adrian Esparza received his BFA from the University of Texas at El Paso and his MFA from California Institute of the Arts in 1998. Artist residencies include ArtPace in San Antonio and the Border Art Residency in La Union. Esparza’s creative reinvention draws international appreciation from Mexico City to Berlin as well as in the U.S. Most recently, the Dallas Museum of Art featured Esparza’s pieces through the Center for Creative Connections Visiting Artists Project. Esparza’s works reside in the permanent collections of multiple museums including the Dallas Museum of Art, the El Paso Museum of Art, and the Perez Miami Art Museum.

Sherry Owens (Dallas): Sherry Owens is a prominent sculptor in the continuum of contemporary artists in Texas. Owens is known for her exquisite sculptures made from repurposed crepe myrtle branches. She constructs dense and often chaotic forms through a labor-intensive process of carving and composing. Entwined branches transform light to expand and shift perspective. This interlacing technique mimics the delicate intricacy found in nature.

Sherry Owens received her BFA from Southern Methodist University. Owens won the Moss/Chumley North Texas Artist Award in 1999, the Artist/Craftsman Award from the AIA Dallas in 2014, and was chosen as the West Texas Triangle Artist in 2010 with a comprehensive survey at five West Texas museums. She co-founded the Emergency Artists’ Support League and served as president of the Texas Sculpture Association. Owens recently completed a large public art project for the Love Field Modernization Program at Love Field Airport in Dallas. Her work has been shown throughout Texas and the southwest and internationally in Peru, Germany, Greece, Turkey, and India.

Robert Sagerman (Jersey City): Informed by his academic studies in art history and Kabbalist Mysticism, Robert Sagerman creates pieces that awe and impress. The artist mills his own oil paint to build layer upon layer on canvas with a palette knife. The title of each piece then corresponds to the number of strokes made by the artist. Repetition as a form of meditation gives way to a mystical experience.

The artist received his BFA (1990) and MFA (1998) from Pratt Institute. A published scholar, he also holds an MS in Art History from Pratt Institute as well as an MA in Religious Studies and a PhD in Hebrew and Judaic Studies from New York University. During this time, he recieved two fellowships, one grant, and a certificate of excellence from NYU and the Pratt Institute. Sagerman’s work has been reviewed by Art in America, NY Arts Magazine, Kunstforum International, Art News and the Atlanta Journal Constitution among many others. He is in the public collections of the Portland Art Museum, The Karl Ernst Osthaus-Museum, and the Museum Für Konkrete Kunst.

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.

Caroline Mousseau: Surrounding Isolations opens June 16 at CYDONIA

FORT WORTH – CYDONIA is pleased to announce the return of Caroline Mousseau in her second solo exhibition Surrounding Isolations. The exhibition opens onFriday, June 16, 2017 and runs until Saturday, July 29, 2017. A reception will take place on June 16, from 6 to 8 in the evening at 2955 Crockett Street, Fort Worth, 76107.

CYDONIA concludes its 2016-17 exhibition year with Caroline Mousseau, the last in our all-female year of programing. The artist’s style is immediately recognizable: repetitive, thick, impasto-like brushstrokes of manipulated oil paints are painstakingly applied in repetitive strokes. The merit of her paintings is not determined by the optical experience for the viewer alone, but Mousseau also incorporates a dialogue about textures and possibilities of paint itself. Powdered pigments mixed with linseed oil are manipulated to stand on her will. Squeezed out of tube, paint is amorphous, but the artist molds, sculpts, and controls the medium to her exacting vision. Tiny, dried ridges of stacked paint lean towards the viewer in a masterful display of uniformity.

The artist describes her latest series: “These works do not strive to capture the landscape, as painting often has attempted to throughout history, but rather to exist within it.” Mousseau’s inspiration comes from the ambiguity that can be found when one cannot fully comprehend her surroundings. For her, this is the point at which representation and abstraction intersect, and the viewer can begin to “deconstruct the process of observation.” Viewing landscape, like abstraction, is an exercise in perception, noting that repetition is a recurring feature within nature.

Painting, in and of itself, is not only a medium, it is the monolithic genre within art. By choosing to work in painting, Mousseau implicitly negotiates the long history between painting, landscape, and abstraction. Applying derivative elements of these sub genres, she is able to create hybrid works. Her works are as stylistically lyrical in composition as they are Greenberg-ian in application. The Vancouverite carefully composes a large mass of undulating, ribbon-like trails on an exposed underpainting. The plane of the canvas where a viewer enters and exits is clearly demarcated. Paint doesn’t strive to be something other than itself. Weaving in and out of its own properties, each painting represents two types of the medium’s viscosity. The underpainting is flat, the material gliding on the canvas with ease; the dominant abstraction represents the second less-fluid state of paint’s materiality. Her attention to the materiality of paint demonstrates self-evident process and resulting interconnectedness to the optical experience. Her use of color is autonomous from propelling these gestures towards any true sense of representation, with palates stemming from the environs of her hometown, Winnipeg, as well as Vancouver. Titles add a playful and evocative overtone that summons imagination.

This exhibition is supported by the Fort Worth Arts Council.

Caroline Mousseau graduated as the valedictorian of Emily Carr University of Art + Design in 2012. She studied at l’École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in 2010. Mousseau has exhibited throughout Canada, and in 2014, she was curated in the exhibition 100 Painters of Tomorrow, with an eponymous book launch, in London and New York. In March 2015, CYDONIA mounted Mousseau’s first solo exhibition. The artist was met with strong Canadian support for her solo presentation at Art Toronto 2016. In February 2017, she was curated in a two-person presentation at Zona Maco in Mexico City entitled Another Chance to Do Right: Emerging Aesthetics Featuring Repetition, Pattern, and Rhythm. In April 2017, Mousseau was curated in her first museum appearance, abNext: Contemporary Abstraction by Emerging Canadian Artists, at the Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Oshawa, Ontario.

“Flow”: Fluid Abstracts by Mary Galbraith opens June 17 at Frisco Fine Art

Mary Galbraith

Frisco Fine Art welcomes local abstract artist Mary Galbraith in the exhibit “Flow”, from June 17 to July 1. A reception to meet the artist will be held on Saturday, June 17, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.

The exhibit will showcase her most recent work: stunning, fluid acrylic paintings that evoke both calm and movement. Galbraith has a solid foundation in nearly every medium. As early as high school, she was participating in painting workshops throughout Texas and became an accomplished photorealistic artist. Now an advocate for experimentation, she broke from the tight constraints of photorealism to explore the looseness and abandon of fluid acrylics.  “Now that I’ve finally stepped out of my self-imposed box, I’ve never felt more free.”

untitled_princezaar

Prince Zaar chose not to stay in the Royalty lineup in Camaroon, but to continue his work in sacred geometry and criminal justice in the US.  He uses ink to execute large scrolls he refers to as trianglerism which are intense, beautiful, and psychedelic.

Rich Cali works with ink on vintage paper recording images from his soul and subconscience with direct subjects transformed to read as elegant autobiographic imagery.

Dan Phillips works with gouache on paper which express his talent as a furniture maker. Simplistic graceful femininity subjects float on his paper.

Anthony Dominguez worked on the streets of NY with dark fabrics and simple uncommon materials such as white-out.  He worked on pieces he could roll and transport for a mobile work space.  His work is allegories from his thoughts about the timeless and repeated state of man and the world.

Robert Ryan is a tattoo artist from New Jersey who when not tattooing is working to maintain clarity and an enlightened state of the mind with his teacher in India.  His work in ink describes this journey.

All five artists are working or have worked within what we would call “the HINTERLAND” – an area lying beyond what is visible or known.

Christina Yielding at Frisco Fine Art

Christina Yielding

Frisco Fine Art welcomes local modern artist Christina Yielding on Saturday, May 27, from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Then, on Sunday, from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m., we will celebrate Memorial Day with live painting demonstrations by Christina. Refreshments will be served.

Christina began painting 15 years ago. Her innovative techniques for creating her mixed-media paintings include using a variety of scrapers rather than brushes. Painting solely on wood, Christina builds a custom frame around every gorgeous piece. Her work has been featured in both solo and group shows throughout  the Dallas-Fort Worth area. “The boundless and infinite nature of this work frees my imagination and silences my thoughts to allow for happy accidents infused with a measure of grace that influence the finished project.”

For more information, call the gallery at 214-872-1917 or visit www.friscofineart.com. Frisco Fine Art is located at Stonebriar Center, on the upper level next to Dillards.

Jorge Alegria: Supernova at Kirk Hopper

supernovaalegrialeft: Jorge Alegría. Nemotids, 2017. 11 x 14 inches. Graphite on paper.

SUPERNOVA | JORGE ALEGRÍA

May 13 – June 24, 2017

 

Kirk Hopper Fine Art (3008 Commerce Street) is pleased to welcome our first solo exhibition for artist Jorge Alegría, entitled SUPERNOVA.  This exhibit will feature Alegría’s most recent drawings and opens Saturday, May 13th, with a public reception for the artist from 6.00 – 8.00 p.m.

Kirk Hopper Fine Art is located at 3008 Commerce Street, Dallas, Texas 75226 in the Deep Ellum neighborhood. Gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday from 12pm – 6pm or by appointment. Phone: 214-760-9230, Email: giovanni@kirkhopperfineart.com, Website: www.kirkhopperfineart.com

Supernova is a further exploration into the visual imagination of Jorge Alegría’s series, Heaven: The War of the Angels. Heaven is a series of works based on a personal fictional narrative of the same name, originating from the Bible, spanning the cosmos and centuries into the future. The new drawings represent scenes of environments, creatures, and civilizations found in events from that narrative.

Alegría’s seductively detailed drawings tap into his stream of consciousness and pull from his boyhood interests of dinosaurs, bible stories, bird watching, and ant farms to create a dark and dystopian world. The War of the Angels begins during the story of Noah, with people and animals being gathered and relocated throughout the cosmos, while a distant angel seeks revenge by inflicting catastrophe. Alegría’s drawings reveal the fragility of our own reality and how disconnected we have become from grace and redemption. His drawings reflect a life of complex moods for complex times.

 

Biography

Jorge Alegría is a native of Corpus Christi, Texas. He studied at Del Mar College and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. Alegría has been exhibiting his work regionally for nearly two decades. Recent group exhibitions include the contemporary drawing biennial Texas Draws III at Southwest School of Art in 2014 and Slipstream, curated by Susie Kalil at Kirk Hopper Fine Art in 2016. In 2004, he and a friend started the independent art space Residence, hosting critiques, curating exhibits, and posting art reviews. The space was revived in 2013, renamed The Living Room, which featured one-night shows of selected artists. Alegría is represented in several collections, including the Art Museum of South Texas.

Katherine Bernhardt at the Modern

kbernhardt-2-web

The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth Presents
FOCUS: Katherine Bernhardt      
April 8-July 9, 2017
For a review of the show, see Nancy Zastudil’s article at Arts + Culture Texas: Funny (But Not Too Funny): Katherine Bernhardt at The Modern http://artsandculturetx.com/funny-but-not-too-funny-katherine-bernhardt-at-the-modern/

The FOCUS series is organized by the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth for the Director’s Council, a group that supports acquisitions at the Museum. The series features three solo exhibitions annually, organized by Assistant Curator Alison Hearst. FOCUS exhibitions are open to the public and are included in general museum admission: $10 for adults; $4 for seniors (60+) and students with identification; free for children 12 and under; free for Modern members.

 
In Katherine Bernhardt’s recent “pattern” paintings, various objects from everyday life repeat within a single composition. The combinations are often humorous, such as in the frankly titled Windex cigarettes basketball, 2016, where the three items repeat and float flatly atop a solid ground of cobalt blue. Emojis, Aquafresh toothpaste, cigarettes, Duracell batteries, and Sharpies are among the subjects Bernhardt paints using simplified, gestural forms. Drawn to these objects for their visual qualities more than for their thematic connections to one another, Bernhardt’s compositions, or “patterns,” are primarily driven by her interest in color and form.
Bernhardt combines opposing styles and methods within any given canvas. For example, her backgrounds are abstract, thin pools of acrylic paint, while her figurative foregrounds are executed with spray paint, forming sketchy, drippy silhouettes. By combining lush washes of color with spray-painted illustrations, her works have diverse passages that simultaneously resemble color field painting and graffiti.
West African, Moroccan, and Caribbean textiles are strong influences, as Bernhardt states: “My interest is in Dutch wax printing on African fabrics, so that’s what I’ve been influenced by. They have all these funny combinations of things that wouldn’t necessarily go together — sunglasses and birds, or whatever it might be.” Her paintings are also inspired by travel; in the large-scale Untitled, 2017, included in the exhibition, brightly hued pink and black toucans, bunches of yellow bananas, and neon pink papayas suggest a tropical scene and are subjects the artist introduced after visiting Puerto Rico. The birds and fruits are set against a swirling neon green, orange, and brown field and are surrounded by Doritos and cigarettes, another example of Bernhardt’s intermingling of incongruent items in a manner similar to the textiles that inspire her.
Bernhardt’s paintings also echo the hand-painted signs at bodegas and markets across the globe, which advertise everything from fresh produce to laundry detergent. Her works reflect on the images and goods we are surrounded by on a daily basis. The artist’s FOCUS exhibition at the Modern will feature eleven new paintings and a series of works on paper, each relating to her exploration of pattern and shape, which is rooted in ordinary subject matter but invigorated by Bernhardt’s cartoonish style and bold use of color. This is her first solo exhibition in Texas and her second museum exhibition to date.
Katherine Bernhardt was born in Saint Louis and currently lives in New York. She received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York and her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has exhibited widely across the globe, including recent solo exhibitions at the Contemporary Art Museum, Saint Louis; Carl Freedman Gallery, London; Venus over Manhattan, New York; CANADA, New York; Roberto Paradise, San Juan, Puerto Rico; and Gallery Loyal, Stockholm. Bernhardt has participated in many group shows at such venues as the Atlanta Contemporary; Kunstforeningen GL Strand, Copenhagen; Saatchi Gallery, London; Foundation Salomon, Annecy, France; Macro Future, Rome; and the Extra City Kunsthal, Antwerp.

TVAA’s 2017 Abstract Redacted Reception May 7

May-TVAAA-Gallery-Poster1-471x600

May 1 – 31, 2017
Reception Sunday, May 7, 2-4 pm

The website for the TATE informs us that abstract ” means to separate or withdraw something from something else. Abstract art is art which is not representational, it could be based on a subject or may have no source at all in the external world.”

When sensitive information is removed or obscured from a document before it is published, it is said to have been redacted. In writing, this is a form of editing.

In this exhibit, we hope to show your abstract work with some redaction. You are the creator and must decide how that occurs. Will you use text which you conceal? Will you have an area in your piece that has had some content removed? Will a sculpture obviously show us a missing part? Perhaps the way you portray this idea will be more subjective. Perhaps it will be very literal. Subtle or not, you decide! All media welcome.

Dream Juice is a contemplation of things in nature, like humans and all the other physical things… but also things that aren’t physical, like an experience, maybe? I mean experience with a capital E.
Abyss
Ashley Whitt
 
Abyss explores the dichotomy between order and chaos within the universe and within the self. Photographic collages and sculptural artist books are fabricated to illustrate the physical manifestations of anxiety and depression through the deconstruction of the photographic image.
Collages are made using a combination of alternative processes; lumen prints, chemigrams, and solvent transfers. To create the images, photographic prints are cut apart and sewn back together. Geometric and organic shapes mimic the patterns and phenomenons found within the universe. Abyss considers the correlation between the inner self and outer space as well as our desires to control and make sense of life and death.

Kelli Vance
We Provide Our Best Offering to the Universe
2017, oil on canvas, 60 x 36 inches

Cris Worley Fine Arts is proud to present Sappers and Miners, our second solo exhibition with Kelli Vance, opening with an artist’s reception on Saturday, May 13th from 5 – 8 pm.
Sappers and Miners will include a series of large-scale paintings produced in oil on canvas. The exhibition will be on view through June 17, 2017.
Kelli Vance is known for her photorealistic paintings, which explore psychologically thrilling themes from voyeurism to assumed identity. Her work is primarily driven by complex narratives surrounding socially constructed notions of femininity that romanticize alternative forms of beauty.
Working from staged photographs, Vance enhances tension in the subjects of her chosen models through her painterly play with light and textures including hair, rope, cake icing, and wet skin. She muffles provocative shouts existing within her compositions by depicting only portions of their narratives, keeping actions hinted by the titles relegated outside the frame.
In the recent work of Sappers and Miners, Vance suspends her depictions of female figures in tantalizing situations, in favor of subdued rituals. An arsenal of occult magic follows her figures in We Provide Our Best Offering to the Universe (2016) and Sun Eaters (2016) as they attempt to locate their locus of control in preparation for psychological battle. This sublime search for power is echoed by a palette of black and white, erasing any evidence of opulence from Vance’s earlier cinematic scenes. These new works summon viewers to seek serenity when reality becomes chaotic.
Kelli Vance was born in Garland, Texas receiving her BFA from the University of North Texas in 2005 and her MFA from the University of Houston in 2008. She was included in the 2009 Texas Biennale, in 2014 she was a finalist for the Hunting Art Prize, and in 2017 she received a Houston Arts Alliance Individual Artist Grant. Vance’s work has been shown widely across Texas as well as in Los Angeles, Chicago, and New Mexico.

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.

Many Hats/One Head – The Accidental Curator

Robert Storr is a painter who supported himself by sheetrocking, carpentry, and house painting, along with occasional art writing, when in 1990, with only an MFA in studio art, Storr was picked out of the chorus line by the newly appointed Kirk Varnedoe, Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, to be a curator in that same department. What followed was an eventful twelve-year run at MoMA, with his tenure ending as Senior Curator. Then there was a stint as the first Rosalie Solow Professor of Modern Art at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, as well as the overall directorship of the 2007 Venice Biennale, making Storr the first and, thus far, only US-born curator chosen for this role in the 112-year-old exhibition. All of this was followed by the deanship of the Yale University School of Art.
Still a professor of painting at Yale, for this Tuesday Evenings presentation Storr talks about learning on the job as a way of life during a period of extraordinarily complex, rapid, and far-flung changes in the “art world” — now a polycentric, culturally diverse, and ever-morphing economic and politic alternate reality — as well as the abiding values that draw people to art and into an “art community” primarily inhabited by makers of various kinds.
Robert Storr lives and works in New York. In addition to his posts at The Museum of Modern Art, New York University, Yale University School of Art, and his role as director of the 52nd Venice Biennale, Storr has curated and published catalogues for numerous exhibitions, including monographic shows on Elizabeth Murray, Gerhard Richter, Tony Smith, and Robert Ryman. In April 2016, Storr was awarded the insignia of Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French Ambassador to the US. As a renowned author and critic, he has been a contributing editor at
Art in America since 1981 and regularly contributes to exhibition catalogues and art publications such as ArtForum, Frieze, Parkett, Corriere della Sera (Milan), and Art Press.His most recent publication, Intimate Geometries: The Work and Life of Louise Bourgeois, was released on February 15, 2017.

Ambreen Butt, Pia Camil and Keer Tanchak Exhibits at the Dallas Contemporary

DallasContemporaryButtCamilTanchak

8 APRIL – 20 AUGUST 2017

AMBREEN BUTT

What is left me

Ambreen Butt’s What is left of me addresses current political oppression and violence globally through large-scale resin installations and collage-based works. The creation of each piece is labor intensive and built upon meditative repetitive forms. Butt studied traditional Indian and Persian miniature painting at the National College of Art in Lahore and has built a unique visual language based upon that training.

PIA CAMIL

Bara, Bara, Bara

Through a wide variety of media ranging from installation to performance and ceramics, Pia Camil explores themes of art history, consumerism and the Mexican urban landscape. Investigating urban ruin through interpretations of abandoned billboards, dollar stores, and iconic works of art, Camil addresses the aesthetic language of modernism and its relationship to retail and advertising.

KEER TANCHAK

Soft Orbit

Keer Tanchak’s site-specific exhibition embodies the idea of time travel through art history and focuses on the last two years of the artist’s studio practice. Tanchak’s approach to painting demonstrates how the medium is always operating in a web of tradition and cultural references. The exhibition serves as a metaphorical X-ray machine that exposes the building block of the language of painting: brushwork, color, and light.
