Dallas Arboretum Presents Artscape Reimagined 2017 With More than 100 Artists

 

DALLAS, Texas (January 24, 2017) — From April 29 to 30, the Dallas Arboretum hosts Artscape Reimagined 2017, a juried fine art and fine craft show and sale that brings together more than 100 outstanding artists from around the country in one of the most beautiful gardens in the world, according to Architectural Digest. A special members preview will be held on April 28 before it opens to the public April 29 and 30.

 

Artscape Chair Kaki Hopkins said, “Set amidst an explosion of spring color, Artscape will transform the Dallas Arboretum’s Pecan Grove into a unique gallery of artistic creations. The event offers our guests the opportunity to both view and acquire beautiful works of art.”

 

The show features a variety of mediums including painting, sculpture, 2-D and 3-D mixed media, photography, fiber, ceramics and more.  This year’s event features a significant increase in the number of artists showing and selling fine arts and crafts. New this year will be a University Zone with artwork from students and faculty. In addition, Dallas galleries will display and sell select artwork in the historic DeGolyer House.

 

In addition to Artscape, guests will be able to enjoy ZimSculpt, a world renowned exhibition of modern Zimbabwean stone sculptures, which will also be beautifully incorporated in the garden as the largest collection ever featured in the southern U.S. with more than 100 hand-carved pieces, which are available to view and to purchase. Two Zimbabwean artists will also demonstrate their artistry as they carve stone into modern sculptures.

 

On May 12 at 6 p.m. at Dallas Arboretum’s Rosine Hall, Artscape continues with an inaugural celebratory awards dinner and auction to honor a top arts contributor. Betty Crawford and Frankie Horn are co-chairing the dinner, and Heritage Auctions will host the live and online auctions.

 

Led by Hopkins, key committee members include David Dike of David Dike Fine Art; Brian Shivers, Dallas Arboretum past board chairman; Patricia Meadows, well known arts consultant and appraiser; Robert Bellamy of Robert Bellamy Designs; Salvador Impastato of Studio Outside; Michael Faircloth of Michael Faircloth Designs; Gail Sachson of Ask Me About Art; Judy Gibbs and Michael Jenkins, both community leaders, among others. More information can be found at http://www.dallasarboretum.org/visit/seasonal-festivals-events/artscape.

 

A members-only preview will take place on Friday, April 28 from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. Reservations will be required. Members will have a chance to preview and shop at a sneak peek before Artscape opens to the public on Saturday, April 29.

 

Among many artists of note who have juried into this year’s show include Brad Oldham (sculpture); Jim Bowman, Carlyn Ray (both glass); Elizabeth Anyaa, Valerie Guignol (both fiber); and Lynn Armstrong (ceramics).
