Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic Exhibition

EL137_16

OKCMOA is proud to present Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic on view summer 2017.

June 16, 2017 – September 10, 2017

Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic presents an overview of the artist Kehinde Wiley’s career including around sixty of his oil paintings, stained glass, and sculpture.  The exhibition highlights the range of Wiley’s production, starting with examples of early paintings executed around the time of his 2001 residency at the Studio Museum in Harlem. These figurative canvases of African-American men, inspired by Wiley’s observation of street life in Harlem, mark the beginning of his focused exploration of the male figure.

Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic is organized by the Brooklyn Museum. Oklahoma City will be the final stop for A New Republic which will also travel to Texas, Washington, Virginia, Arizona, and Ohio.

Contextual Assembly opening Feb. 23 at Kettle Art

Contextual_Assembly_square

Kettle Art proudly presents ‘Contextual Assembly’ a group exhibit featuring new works by Corey Godfrey, Hilda Lafleur, Roberta Masciarelli, and Amy Seymour.

From Corey’s soft, yarn focus on stones, to Hilda’s psychedelic imagery, to Roberta’s recycled constructions, to Amy’s imaginative world of clay, these four artists are united in whimsical, dream-like realities. This exhibit opens on Thursday, February 23, 2017, from 7:00-10:00pm, and runs through Saturday, March 18.

Kettle Art Gallery Deep in the Art of Ellum
2650-B Main Street  Dallas, TX 75226 www.kettleart.com

Roberta_Masciarelli_Animal_Condo

Corey Godfrey is a Texas-based artist whose past works have focused primarily on women as subject matter, utilizing yarn as her medium, a material traditionally associated with them. In her current series, Corey is inspired by stones found in nature that exemplify beauty, strength, and a profound sense of femininity. Corey holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from North Texas State University.

Roberta Masciarelli  is a Brazilian-born visual artist based in Dallas for the past eighteen years. Her art consists of sculptures, or constructions, created from found objects and materials, such as metal hardware. Having been a full-time artist for approximately ten years, Roberta has participated in art events within the US including Dallas, Washington DC, Santa Fe, Sedona, and New York. Internationally, she has exhibited in collective exhibits in England, Holland, Denmark, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, South Africa, New Zealand, Bosnia, Japan, Italy, and India. She earned a Bachelor of Architecture from Mackenzie University, Sao Paulo, Brazil.

HIlda Lafleur is a self-taught, Texas-born-and-bred artist. Hilda’s unique eye for color produces upbeat paintings inspired by frequent trips throughout Europe, further influenced by a life spent in Dallas during the turbulent sixties, seventies, and beyond. Her works are created on hand made canvas and painted with a unique concoction of acrylic paint and secret ingredients.

Amy Seymour is a Dallas native who has been creating art, sculpture, and photography for approximately twenty years. Amy’s work depicts a playful and mischievous vision from a dreamy realm within her subconscious view of the world around us.

CADD Fund Announces Finalists! Join us Sunday, March 5

CADDfund

Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas Present

CADD FUNd 2017

Sunday, March 5th, 5:00 – 7:30 pm

3015 AT TRINITY GROVES
3015 Gulden Lane

Dallas, Texas 75212

Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas will again celebrate creativity and community with a Sunday Soup Supper on March 5th at 3015 at Trinity Groves. CADD FUNd 2017 will be a fun, fast-paced evening of sharing innovative ideas about potential artistic projects. CADD FUNd 2017 will make possible a high-impact idea that needs the support of the DFW arts community.

The idea for the annual CADD FUNd was inspired by similar events throughout the United States such as Feast in Brooklyn, Incubate in Chicago and Spread in Santa Fe. Over the past several years, numerous organizations have taken the basic premise of a Sunday soup dinner – collect creative proposals, invite the public to pay, eat, and listen, and then democratically vote for a winner – and adapted it to their own local purposes.

This year’s CADD FUNd finalists were selected by three esteemed jurors including; Anna Smith, Curator of Education, Nasher Sculpture Center; Sue Canterbury, The Pauline Gill Sullivan Associate Curator of American Art, Dallas Museum of Art; and Dr. Rodger Kobes, art collector and enthusiast.

The six finalists are: Justin Archer/UNT, Jessie Barnes/UNT, Spencer Evans/UTA, Dannie Liebergot/UNT, Juan Negroni/SMU, and Diego Romo/UNT.

During the event on March 5th, the finalists will present short proposals for original and yet-to-be-realized new projects. Members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask questions and then the audience participants will vote for their favorite project. After a short recess to tally the votes, the winner of CADD FUNd 2017 will be announced!

The CADD FUNd is $2500 – $7500 + and beyond. Funds are raised by ticket sales and will go to the winner chosen by the audience. Tickets are $40 per person and are on sale now. Tickets will not be available at the door. In an effort to make CADD FUNd 2017 as accessible as possible for the students and artists, $10 of each ticket sold will be applied to jurors’ fees and administrative costs in lieu of charging application fees.

The 2015 CADD FUNd was awarded to Rachel Rushing for her project- Sunset Art Studios: An Oak Cliff artist run studio and exhibition space. Named for the former Sunset Streetcar Line, Sunset Art Studios is a culturally invested art space. A group of local artists develop their work while providing the surrounding community opportunities to directly engage in the process of art. Ms. Rushing will give a short presentation at the event about her project, Sunset Art Studios.

RESERVE YOUR SEAT TO VOTE – BUY YOUR TICKET TODAY! 

While CADD FUNd is about raising much-needed cash, we hope that it will also be a forum to discuss the many other needs and resources that help make projects happen.

GISA ELWAZIR DIPTYCH: A DIVIDED LAND (SCAPE)

GisaElwazirProtecting the Land

February 9 – March 4, 2017
Opening Reception:  Saturday, February 11, 5-8 pm
Haley-Henman Gallery at Gallery 422422 Singleton Boulevard, Dallas, Texas 75212 

Gisa Elwazir’s fourth solo exhibition at Haley-Henman

DALLAS, Texas (January 10, 2017)–Haley-Henman proudly announces Gisa Elwazir’s solo exhibition of new paintings titled Diptych:  A Divided Land (Scape).  The exhibition opens on Thursday, February 9th and continues until March 4th. An opening reception with the artist is Saturday, February 11th from 5-8 pm.

Gisa Elwazir is at her most complex expression of her leitmotif, organic abstraction.  This is her fourth solo exhibition of new paintings in this collection.   Haley-Henman is honored to be the premier venue of her new works that continually receive awards in juried competitions.

At the foundation of all these works is her medium of decalcomania, whereby she makes a texture of paint applied to the paper, like putting on a decal.  It is from this texture that the artist begins her creative process.  Decalcomania begins the rich layering of saturated colors, stippled transparencies of color, and the unfolding of spaces and forms.

For this exhibition, the viewer encounters the majority of works as diptychs in which the artist intentionally keeps a space between two continguous panels.  When a viewer approaches Gisa Elwazir’s paintings, there is an overall sense that something is happening.  The visual sense is assaulted with color interwoven by dynamic patterns of action.  These paintings are not static abstractions, nor are they static land (scapes).  As the viewer gets closer to the work, there is an increased visual experience of seeing stunning detail, with occasional plays of figurative and landscape references where the inner worlds of imagination come to life, and where the viewer can give their own meaning to the artist’s suggestions.

LuminArte Fine Art Gallery Presents: “Faces of the Earth” – Albena Hristova Feb. 17

Hristova2

LuminArte Fine Art Gallery presents: Exhibition “Faces of the Earth” February, 17-May 6th, 2017
“Faces of the Earth” is a collection of up close and personal observations of Natural Beauty unto the Eyes of the Beholder – Artist Albena Hristova.

“The Faces of the Earth” 
Exhibition – February 17th -May 6th 2017
Opening Exhibition (Meet and Greet) –  February 17th, 7-10:00pm

Featured Artist: International artist, Albena Hristova born and raised behind the Iron Curtain .

Gold Phoenix – Oil on Canvas
“For me everything starts with seeing, nothing rings more true to me than the eye of the beholder”.  Hristova examines the beauty and grandeur of Mother Nature through highly textured surfaces detailing a wide range of light and dark variances form dusk to dawn; inviting the viewer to make their own discoveries in these close encounters with the Earth.

Globally successful and acclaimed artist, Albena Hristova, was born and raised behind the Iron Curtain in Bulgaria. Her first influence was her mother, who at the time was the leading restorer of the Bulgarian National Gallery in Sophia. Following in her mentor’s footsteps, she started painting at an extremely young age and went on to complete 12 years of classical art education, as well as a Masters in Mural Painting from the Academy of Fine Arts in Sofia.

CAROLYN BROWN 
– THE PAINTED TOMBS OF SWIFT

Carolyn Brown has photographed the world but her upcoming exhibition is entirely focused on Fort Worth, Texas. Brown was offered the chance to document the long-abandoned buildings formerly owned by Swift and Company, a meatpacking giant that dwindled and eventually closed in 1971. Following the trend of other unused urban storehouses, these are slated to undergo renovation to provide residences and office space. Brown’s show, entitled “The Painted Tombs of Swift”, is a meditation on the interim between a finished past and an unfurled future. The building shells are laced with graffiti. Broken windows seep with plant life. Water pools on the floor. Carolyn captures the nuance of the place with confidence, relying on the space’s ability to render rather than dramatic camera angles. A professional in a magic environment.

CHRIS MASON – HIGHER STATES

New York born artist Chris Mason is still trying to find peace. His upcoming exhibition, “Higher States”, is concocted of both the old and the new. Known for his wire climbers (wire wound into figures trekking upwards), Mason has opened his work up to include different methods of ascension: meditation. His tightly wound figures are charged with the energy that comes from searching the soul rather than disciplining the body. They sit in repose, finding harmony though the rigid wire they’re composed of is at odds with their lax position. It makes sense when he claims the figures of High Renaissance and comic books as influences. Paradox abounds. The climbers are here as well. Weighed down by gravity’s pull on their material, they are fixed on their way north. We begin to see traces of ourselves in these bodies; against all odds we hang on, intent on moving forward despite the challenges we face.

Opening Reception for VANGUARD: Anniversary Exhibition Feb. 18

LAUBE_55-16_Dimensions variable (1MB)

Celebrating its fourth year in the Dallas Design District, Laura Rathe Fine Art (LRFA), presents ‘VANGUARD,’ a group anniversary exhibition featuring distinctive new works by various gallery artists, with an opening reception on Saturday, February 18th from 5-8pm.

Since opening its doors at its second location in February 2013, LRFA has experienced remarkable growth and continued success on Dragon Street. This is due in large part to the gallery’s continually expanding and remarkably diverse roster of contemporary artists. ‘VANGUARD’ will highlight this diversity and present works in a variety of media by midcareer and emerging artists from both Texas and abroad. Though they come from different backgrounds, each artist is producing work at the height of their careers.

LRFA has recently broadened its international focus. ‘VANGUARD’ will present new works by recent additions to the gallery roster including, German artist Michael Laube, South African Artist Gavin Rain, and Chinese Artist Zhuang Hong Yi. This year also marks the addition of nationally and internationally known artists, Hunt Slonem and Cassandria Blackmore.

The success of LRFA’s Dallas location is also owed to the continued support of the gallery’s enthusiastic and continually expanding collector base, whose passion for contemporary art mirrors the growth and success of the Dallas art market and the city’s art scene more broadly. LRFA is extremely grateful to the community for its continued support and looks forward to serving its patrons in the New Year!

VANGUARD’ will be on view through March 25, 2017.

The Modern Presents FOCUS: Stanley Whitney

Stanley Whitney

Jan 21, 2017 – Apr 02, 2017
Stanley Whitney investigates the intricate possibilities of color and form in the realm of abstract painting. Since the mid-1970s, Whitney has been known for his multicolored, irregular grids on square canvases. Taking the essentialist grid of minimalism as his cue, his configurations are loose, uneven geometric lattices comprised of vibrant stacked color blocks that vary in hue, shape, and the handling of the paint. Whitney also utilizes color as subject, and his paintings often refer to literature, music, places, and other artists, connections that are bolstered in his titles.


 

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.
  
Since the mid-1970s, Stanley Whitney has investigated the intricate possibilities of color and form in the realm of abstract painting. Whitney’s signature style features multicolored, irregular grids on square canvases. Taking the essentialist grid of minimalism as his cue, his configurations are loose, uneven geometric lattices comprised of vibrant stacked color blocks that vary in hue, shape, and the handling of the paint. Whitney also utilizes color as subject, and his paintings often refer to literature, music, places, and other artists, connections that are bolstered in his titles.
Working without preparatory materials, Whitney combines balance and intuition in his approach to painting, as each color block is painted sequentially in relation to the ongoing arrangement. This process is expressive, improvisational, and can be linked to jazz, which continually inspires the artist. As Whitney has stated, “The way that it’s a little offbeat, polyrhythmic; the way that things move. Nothing’s straight. Nothing’s regular. Everything’s a little crooked. And I think that’s really what comes out of the music. It comes out of the beat, it comes out of how people walk, the way people wear their hat, just a little off. I think about all of those kinds of things and want them in the painting.”
FOCUS: Stanley Whitney features new work by the artist, including three large-scale paintings.
Stanley Whitney was born in Philadelphia, and lives and works in New York and Parma, Italy. He earned a BFA from Kansas City Art Institute and an MFA from Yale University. Whitney has exhibited across the globe, having held solo exhibitions at The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York; Lagorio Arte Contemporanea, Brescia, Italy; Architettura Arte Moderna, Rome; Omi International Arts Center, Ghent, New York; University of Dayton, Ohio; University of Rhode Island, Kingston; Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia; Anderson Gallery, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond; and the Brooklyn Academy of Music, New York. Whitney was in the 50th Venice Biennale. He has also been included in many group shows at such venues as the Camden Arts Centre, London; American Academy in Rome; Contemporary Arts Museum Houston; University of Chicago; Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, Missouri; and the Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach. His prizes include the Robert De Niro Sr. Prize in Painting, American Academy of Arts and Letters Art Award, and a Guggenheim Fellowship.
 
The Director’s Council
The Director’s Council was formed in 1985 and supports the Modern with an annual acquisition for the permanent collection. The Director’s Council sponsors the FOCUS series, which presents three solo exhibitions organized each year. Each exhibition opens with an exclusive cocktail reception for the Council, giving the members an opportunity to meet the featured artist and discuss his or her work. One piece by each artist is chosen by the Museum director and curator to be part of the final selection voted on at the Council’s Purchase Meeting each May. This format provides members with an in-depth understanding of the Modern’s acquisitions process and offers a spirited and popular series of events. The annual dues, $600, include all the benefits of an Associate/Family-level membership and invitations to exclusive Director’s Council events.

Livedalen500xTo Lisa, With Love
Rachel Livedalen
 
This solo exhibition by Rachel Livedalen features new drawings that combine images of idealized femininity through canonical works of western art history with her love of 1990s Lisa Frank stickers and ephemera.

 

Cravens500x
House
Lynne Bowman Cravens
 
Cravens is exploring the idea of memory and nostalgia by photographing her childhood home. She used appropriated family photographs to serve as the anchor for the series. After examining the precise locations in the house in which the original photographs were taken, she then re-photographed the same areas. The building has undergone cosmetic changes over the past several years, and has transitioned from being her family’s home to becoming a rental property. From images full of artifacts and mementos, to starkly empty spaces, the house becomes barely recognizable. This project not only focuses on Cravens’ memories of the house, but also on how the recent physical changes done to the building affect perception of the space.
Lorenz500x
rabbit holes, the descent
Seth Lorenz
 
Lorenz’ new exhibition is the second chapter in the body of his work “rabbit holes,”. He continues to use elements of the home and objects of memory to investigate the intricacies of the human psyche and its’ emotional aptitude to cope, confront and heal from trauma and suffering.
Escapes
Julie Libersat
 
Escapes, a solo exhibition by Julie Libersat, explores the aesthetics of public space with works that blur the lines between virtual and real landscapes. Using 3D prints and images from the video game SIMS, Escapes presents a landscape that reflects the ubiquity and homogeneity of a placeless cityscape. The built environment directs our orientations and cultural values through the meaning we construct around the buildings and places occupied within memory, dreams and imagination. Our cities, neighborhoods and buildings reflect our personal, cultural and political histories and imaginaries. How does the design of the built environment colonize space and nature to manufacture desire in the landscape of capitalism?
January Project Spaces 
Replicate
Ross Faircloth and Ashley Whitt
Ross Faircloth: As our lives are becoming more and more influenced and connected to technology I have become interested in how and where this is taking place and more specifically at the possible outcomes of the lines between reality and simulated reality blurring to the point of non-existence. Video game consoles are increasingly becoming more than just for games and are hubs of entertainment in many homes. Contemplating the amount of control given to machines over our daily lives the images serve as a haunting reminder that a simulated world can be just as fragile and manipulated as our ‘real’ one, if not more so. We should be careful to place too much blind trust in these imperfect systems. The images in this series are created through a Playstation 4 and the game Call Of Duty: Black Ops III ®. The images are either multi-layered or cut-up to create another level of separation from reality.
Ashley Whitt: Inspired by the readings of scientists including Lawrence Krauss and Steven Hawking, the focus of Ashley Whitt’s work is a questioning of existence and reality. Responding to the theories that a multiverse could exist, Whitt creates visual parallel realities within her work. The dichotomy of the vast versus the miniscule is explored through a variety of imagery including landscapes and self-portraits. How would another universe look? Is it possible for two or more realities to exist at once? These questions are explored through analog and digital photographic imagery that is manipulated and layered in Photoshop.
Assembly #1
Alex Heffesse
Curated by Lindsey Larsen
 
Heffesse is a one-man enterprise. An inspector of the manufactured landscape. With a questionable production cycle that terminates at the prototype, the sculptural objects mimic a proof-of-principle, meaning, a demonstration in principle with the aim of verifying practical modes of production. The prototypes, in some degree, serve to verify key aspects of society. Creating enigmatic narratives of man-made environments. Past, present, and future. The prototype is the only truth in a world full of disguise.

Kathleen Ramirez “Fractured Sanctum” opens Jan. 8 in Irving

ramirezfracturedsanctum

FRACTURED SANCTUM EXHIBIT

Artist Kathleen Ramirez
January 8 – January 27, 2017
Jaycee Park Center for the Arts, West Gallery, 1975 Puritan, Irving TX 75061

RECEPTION Sunday January 8th, 2-4 pm

Fractured Sanctum attempts to capture experiences that break the solitude and safety of a person’s physical, mental, or emotional attributes. The sanctum – a personal, even sacred place – sustains fractures through trauma of the physical or emotional nature, or from the infection of mental diseases, many of which come on suddenly, viciously, and in some cases, predictably. Such experiences reveal unseen facets of an individual. The event of the fracture is a very personal one, and cannot be fully understood from a strictly singular perspective. Nearly all of these pieces are based either on personal experiences or on the experiences of individuals.

 

ramirezfractured2

Fractured Sanctum utilizes iridescent and interference paints in such a way that viewers must move around the pieces in order to see the colors shift and change right before their eyes. This serves to parallel the perception toward a person whose sanctum has been rent, as the cognizance of a fracture is better understood when viewed from multiple vantage points.

Sponsored by the Irving Art Association.

Artist Bio:

Kathleen Ramirez is a Texas-based artist and works primarily in printmaking, painting, and light installation. She received her BA in Art with a focus in Printmaking from the University of Dallas, and she intends to continue on to earn her MFA in the near future.

Murielle White – Mutation opens Jan. 7 at Cris Worley

Murielle White – Mutation
January 7 – February 11, 2017
Opening Reception:  
Saturday, January 7th from 5pm – 8pm
Cris Worley Fine Arts 1845 Levee St. #110 Dallas, TX 75207 214-745-1415 crisworley.com
Cris Worley Fine Arts is pleased to announce our second solo exhibition with Murielle White, entitled, Mutation. press release: pr-white-mutation

An opening reception for the artist will be held at the gallery, Saturday, January 7, from 5-8pm. The show will
run through Saturday, February 11.

In the spring of 2014, Murielle White was chosen out of 300 applicants to create a mural for the new Student
Union on the University of North Texas campus. Since White was born to a culturally diverse family, it was
important to her that the mural reflects the cultural diversity on campus, a theme already focal to her art
practice. Titled, Ocean of Possibilities, the 4 x 92-foot curved painting was installed on site in January of 2016.

Since that time, Murielle White has worked tirelessly on a body of work that had to wait while she completed the University’s commission. Along with her prevailing obsession with cultural identity, and inspired by recent
personal events, the artist began down a new path of self-discovery. This culminated in the seven new mixed
media paintings found in Mutation. In this body of work, White incorporates themes from her past, popular
iconography and language from the four countries of her grandparents, along with lone figures in silhouette,
that allude to a kind of personal transformation. Of note is the focus on line, lines demarking borders, lines
revealing cracks that at once, form innocuously, and grow into eventual great divides.

White graduated magna cum laude from the University of South Florida with a B.F.A. in Studio Art in 2006 and went on to receive her M.F.A. from the University of North Texas in 2010. She has studied abroad the traditional painting techniques of India and China. White has had solo exhibitions in Dallas, Houston and New Orleans and is in private and corporate collections.

CADD announces CADDfund 2017

caddfund

Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas Present
 
CADD FUNd 2017
 
Sunday, March 5th, 5:00 – 7:30 pm
 
3015 AT TRINITY GROVES
3015 Gulden Lane
Dallas, TX 75212

Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas will again celebrate creativity and community with a Sunday Soup Supper onMarch 5th at 3015 at Trinity Groves. CADD FUNd 2017 will be a fun, fast-paced evening of sharing innovative ideas about potential artistic projects. CADD FUNd 2017 will make possible a high-impact idea that needs the support of the DFW arts community.

The idea for the annual CADD FUNd was inspired by similar events throughout the United States such as Feast in Brooklyn, Incubate in Chicago and Spread in Santa Fe. Over the past several years, numerous organizations have taken the basic premise of a Sunday soup dinner – collect creative proposals, invite the public to pay, eat, and listen, and then democratically vote for a winner – and adapted it to their own local purposes.

This year’s CADD FUNd will be awarded to a current or previous B.A, B.F.A., M.A. or M.F.A. graduate or candidate from an institution within 100 miles of Dallas. Six finalists will be selected from all of the applicants by three esteemed jurors to be announced soon. (Past jurors included: Gabriel Ritter, Judy Deaton, William Rudolph, Michael Mazurak, Jed Morse and Justine Ludwig.)

During the event on March 5th, the finalists will present short proposals for original and yet-to-be-realized new projects. Members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask questions and then the audience participants will vote for their favorite project. After a short recess to tally the votes, the winner of CADD FUNd 2017 will be announced!

The CADD FUNd is $2500 – $7500 + and beyond. Funds are raised by ticket sales and will go to the winner chosen by the audience. Tickets are $40 per person and will go on sale in January. Tickets will not be available at the door. In an effort to make CADD FUNd 2017 as accessible as possible for the students and artists, $10 of each ticket sold will be applied to jurors’ fees and administrative costs in lieu of charging application fees.

The 2015 CADD FUNd was awarded to Rachel Rushing for her project- Sunset Art Studios: An Oak Cliff artist run studio and exhibition space. Named for the former Sunset Streetcar Line, Sunset Art Studios is a culturally invested art space. A group of local artists develop their work while providing the surrounding community opportunities to directly engage in the process of art. Ms. Rushing will give a short presentation at the event about her project, Sunset Art Studios.

While CADD FUNd is about raising much-needed cash, we hope that it will also be a forum to discuss the many other needs and resources that help make projects happen.

Anna Elise Johnson: INNER WORKINGS opens Nov. 19 at CWFA

innerworkings

ANNA ELISE JOHNSON 
INNER WORKINGS
NOVEMBER 19 – DECEMBER 31, 2016

OPENING RECEPTION:
Saturday, November 19th from 5pm – 8pm
Cris Worley Fine Arts 1845 Levee St. #110 Dallas, TX 75207 214-745-1415 Cris Worley, cris@crisworley.com
Cris Worley Fine Arts is proud to announce our first solo exhibition with, Anna Elise Johnson, entitled Inner
Workings. An opening reception for the artist will be held at the gallery, Saturday, November 19th, from 5-8pm.
The show will run through Saturday, December 31st.
Anna Elise Johnson’s three-dimensional collages utilize photographs of political, economic, and diplomatic
meetings to create small-scale, mise-en-scéne containing ambiguous, but striking narratives with characters
frozen in time. Delicate mists of spray paint, photography and India ink, suspended in a box of clear acrylic,
capture a chaotic stillness between figures that are defined by the void that their absence creates. It is unclear if these moments represent the past, present, or act as directive to the future political accounts. Both personal and broader social implications appear in Johnson ‘s work; here she examines the impact of our world leaders’ decisions and how one navigates this ambiguous and complex terrain.
Anna Elise Johnson currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. She was a prestigious Core Fellow at the
Glassell School of Art in Houston, TX from 2012 to 2014. Johnson received an MFA at The University of Chicago and a BFA from Washington University in St. Louis. She was granted an artist-in-residence at the Tottenham Hale International Studios in London, England, and was an artist’s assistant to Julie Mehretu. Johnson has been featured in over twenty group exhibitions throughout the nation, as well as internationally, in India, at the University of Chicago’s Delhi Center, in Slovenia, and multiple times in Germany, her birth country. She has also had solo exhibitions in Chicago, IL, Berlin, Germany, and at the Blaffer Museum in Houston, TX.

Jeanne Neal “Iterations” – Ro2 Art at the Magnolia

Ro2 Art AT THE MAGNOLIA

West Village I 3699 McKinney ave. Ste 100

Second Floor Bar

OPENING RECEPTION

Thursday, October 27, 68pm

Unanswered questions, mysteries, imponderables, and under lying meanings are a few of the concepts that are evoked through the work. As always, materials mark the beginning of my artistic endeavors. Oil paint, acrylic paint, papers, markers, inks and glues work together to become physical expressions of the quandaries of existence. Whether I literally scrape away to reveal the underlying layers, create unfamiliar shapes or symbols, or utilize mixed media in an unexpected way, the viewer is called upon to help complete the work through their own interpretation, look for the answers ( or the questions) and hopefully be moved to find the metaphors that tie into meaningful experience. – Jeanne Neal, 2016

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.

OPENING RECEPTION
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

angelcabralesoperation
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.
