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 Winter, Tommy Fitzpatrick, Matthew Cusick, Dornith 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.
5:00 pm Arrive promptly, park and visit Conduit Gallery at 1626 C Hi Line Drive.
5:30 pm Get on the bus and head to Polsinelli to view their art collection.
6:30 pm Visit Cris Worley Fine Arts & Holly Johnson Gallery at 1845 Levee Street.

8:45 pm Return to Conduit Gallery to retrieve your car.
Tickets are $75.00 each
Seating is limited

Guests are provided with transportation, tour, refreshments, and a light supper.
The Bus Tour is approximately 4 hours long.

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.

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.

ANNA ELISE JOHNSON

Workings. An opening reception for the artist will be held at the gallery, Saturday, November 19th, from 5-8pm.
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.
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.
