Selldorf will speak on Wednesday, April 5 at 6:30 p.m., with check-in at 6:00 p.m., in the Horchow Auditorium at the Dallas Museum of Art, with reception immediately following.
“The work of Annabelle Selldorf encompasses numerous art-centered projects, from galleries to major museums in the U.S. and abroad, with a focus on contemporary art ranging from the early 20th century German and Austrian art of the Neue Galerie to modern art since 1950 at the Contemporary Art Museum of San Diego. With this body of work that features her celebrated elegant restraint and attention to detail, we believe she will give a program of great interest to the Dallas community in collaboration with the Dallas Art Fair,” stated Nate Eudaly, Executive Director of The Dallas Architecture Forum.

Presented in collaboration with Dallas Art Fair
 
Selldorf Architects is a 65-person architectural design practice founded by Annabelle Selldorf in New York City in 1988. The firm creates public and private spaces that manifest a clear and modern sensibility to enduring impact. Since its inception the firm’s guiding principles have been deeply rooted in humanism — in the individual experience. At every scale and for every condition, the work of Selldorf Architects is brought to life—and made complete—by those who use it.
 
The firm’s clients include cultural institutions and universities such as the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the Clark Art Institute, Neue Galerie New York, Pratt Institute and Brown University. In addition, the firm has created numerous galleries for David Zwirner, Hauser & Wirth, and Gladstone Gallery among others, and designed exhibitions for the Whitney Museum, Gagosian Gallery, Frieze Masters, and the Venice Art Biennale. Residential design is also an integral part of the firm’s portfolio having realized the ground-up construction of large condominium buildings, custom private homes, and renovations of townhouses and individual apartments.
 
Award-winning projects include the recently completed 30,000 sf LEED Gold Gallery building (the highest environmental rating a new building can achieve in New York) which is the first LEED certified commercial gallery in the U.S. for a second David Zwirner location in Chelsea; as well as Sunset Park Material Recovery Facility, a new recycling facility and education center on the Brooklyn waterfront – the largest of its kind in the United States. The firm’s renovation of The Clark’s Museum Building opened to critical acclaim in 2014. In spring of 2016, the newly renovated Steinway Hall opened a 17,500 sf flagship showroom for Steinway & Sons which includes a retail showroom, a 72-seat recital hall, recording studio, and concert artists’ space. Selldorf Architects is currently designing an expansion for the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego and is converting a former rail depot into LUMA Arles, a new contemporary art center in Arles, France.
 
Annabelle Selldorf, FAIA, is the Principal of Selldorf Architects. Born and raised in Germany, she received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the Pratt Institute and a Master of Architecture degree from Syracuse University. Ms. Selldorf is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, and serves on the boards of the Architectural League of New York and the Chinati Foundation. In 2014, she was the recipient of the American Academy of Arts and Letters’ Award in Architecture and in 2016 she received the  Medal of Honor from the American Institute of Architects New York Chapter. Selldorf Architects’ new monograph, “Selldorf Architects: Portfolio and Projects,” was published by Phaidon Press in the spring of 2016.

Simeen Farhat: ‘Blood Shot is Blood Loved’ opens April 1st at Cris Worley

Farhat-Simeen-Blood-detail PR-Farhat-Blood-Shot-is-Blood-Loved

Exhibition Title: Simeen Farhat: ‘Blood Shot is Blood Loved’
Exhibition Dates: April 1, 2017 — May 6, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, April 1st from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Cris Worley Fine Arts, Dallas TX crisworley.com

flyer: PR-Farhat-Blood-Shot-is-Blood-Loved
Cris Worley Fine Arts is proud to present Blood Shot is Blood Loved, our second solo exhibition with Simeen
Farhat, opening with an artist’s reception on Saturday, April 1st, from 5 to 8 p.m. Blood Shot is Blood Loved will include a large-scale installation along with various multi-dimensional wall reliefs. The exhibition will be on view through May 6, 2017. In her work, Farhat often uses cast resin and acrylic to make intimately poetic sculptures that engage participants in the act of deciphering between material form and shadow, much like the process of deriving meaning from sensory perception; a visual analogue to the brutally nuanced struggle of human communication.

Inspiration for Blood Shot is Blood Loved began with Farhat’s poetic meditations on the dual nature of one of the most vital elements in the natural world—blood. As the artist writes, “I leave my traces many times. I can be either hot or cold. People both love and hate me—I scare them off; but they need me, too. My name is Blood.” In this installation, Farhat re-creates the moment a large-scale drop of blood hits ground, capturing the reverberating effects released by a passionate burst of energy. The ardent drop of blood is assembled from abstracted epigraphic forms, a signature of Farhat’s body of work. The direct metaphor with the liquid materiality of the human body evokes a realm of ideas inhabited by her previous works: A Teardrop in Disperse (2015), A Bubble Bursts (2015), and A Red Drop of Blood (2015). By rendering one example of the un-deniability of the human body, Blood Shot is Blood Loved quietly implicates the dichotomy between purity of life, and abject realities of violence that suppress human volition, globally. Mimicking the quality of blood as a provocative substance, the installation invites the viewer to actively explore the blood droplet as it spills into the gallery space.

Simeen Farhat was born in Karachi, Pakistan. She has lived and worked in the U.S. since 1992, receiving her BFA from Arizona State University, and her MFA from Texas Christian University. Her work has been exhibited globally in Austria, France, Germany, India, Singapore, Taiwan, the UK, at the National Art Gallery in Pakistan, and the Sharjah Museum of Modern Art, among others. Farhat participated in the 2009 Texas Biennial; In 2012 she was an Artist in Residence at the ORYX Foundation in Switzerland; and in 2015 she was invited to participate in an exhibition at the 56th Venice Biennale, In the Eye of the Thunderstorm: Effervescent Practices from the Arab World. Farhat’s work is represented in the Crown Prince of UAE’s Abu Dhabi Palace Collection, The U.S. Consulate in Jeddah, The Four Seasons Hotel in Dubai, and the Peninsula Hotel in Paris.

Jack Whitten: Earlier Works at Bivins Gallery

Jack Whitten

Bivins Gallery is pleased to present Jack Whitten: Earlier Works from April 1-May 6, 2017.

Created during a five-year period in the late 1960s, the paintings and works on paper featured in Jack Whitten: Earlier Works reference race, cosmology, music, and politics. Influenced by personal relationships with Willem de Kooning, Martin Luther King, Jr., Miles Davis, Philip Guston, and Franz Kline, the abstractions reflect the social and political turmoil of the era. The conversation will be joined by Dallas’s own local artist Spencer Evans, whose work references issues of identity and image in the black community. Please join us at the opening reception on April 1 from 5 pm – 8pm, at the gallery’s Uptown location, to continue the dialogue. Bivins Gallery is located at 300 Crescent Court, Suite 100,Dallas, TX 75201. http://www.bivinsgallery.com/ Please contact anna@bivinsgallery.com for more details.

Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas
Announce
2017 CADD FUNd Winner
Spencer Evans 
MFA Candidate-Intermedia
University of Texas at Arlington

spencerevansContemporary Art Dealers of Dallas celebrated creativity and community with a Sunday Soup Supper on March 5th. CADD FUNd 2017 was awarded to Spencer Evans in the amount of $5000.
During the event finalists presented proposals about potential artistic projects. It was a fun evening sharing innovative ideas. The other finalists included; Justin Archer/UNT, Jessie Barnes/UNT, Dannie Liebergot/UNT, Juan Negroni/SMU, and Diego Romo/UNT.
Finalists were selected by  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 2017 CADD FUNd will aid Spencer Evans in traveling to Lagos, Nigeria to conduct research on differences

between Black American and Nigerian/African identity. He has been invited to conduct his research by the President of the Nigerian Baptist Theological Seminary, Dr. Emiola Nihinlola and the Vice Chancellor of Bowen University, Dr. Matthews Ojo. These invitations  include participating schools:  University of Lagos (Lagos), University if Ibadan (Ibadan), Bowen University (Iwo), and Nigerian Baptist Theological  Seminary (Ogbomoso). Evans will live among Nigerian students to develop a clear and direct understanding of their lives, mindsets, and sense of self.  He will hold and record group discussions and interviews regarding the social conditioning that shaped their sense of identity and how it differs from the millions of African descendants living in the U.S.

Traveling to Nigeria is crucial to his research because he recently learned that his mother’s paternal ancestry is from Nigeria and Cameroon. Also crucial are the conversations he has had with his Nigerian friends regarding a perception-rooted rift between Africans and Black Americans. He plans to gain further insight from interviews, discussions, and daily interactions with his Nigerian brothers and sisters.

Photography, drawing, and painting will be components of his research in Nigeria. He plans to show his appreciation by donating a work of art to each of the universities participating.

Dallas Quilt Show March 10 -12 at Dallas Market Hall

2017-dallas-show-round

Dallas Quilt Show 2017
“Its a Charmed Life!”

March 10 – 12, 2017

Friday, Saturday and Sunday
Dallas Market Hall

 

 

http://www.quiltersguildofdallas.org/2016_show_event_home

This year, the Show Chair’s Theme is “It’s a Charmed Life!”

Charm Quilts have been around for over 150 years. They are referred to by many names: One Patch, indicating a single shape; Beggar, indicating that the quilter begged for fabric; and Odd-Feller, indicating no repeats in fabrics. Some very recognizable patterns include 1000 Pyramids, Grandmother’s Flower Garden, Apple Core and Postage Stamp.

For the purposes of the show theme category, here are the rules:

  • ONE SHAPE ONLY! You can use various sizes of the same shape in the quilt.
  • You can repeat fabrics in the quilt.
  • The edges of the quilt may have partial shapes where the sides were squared up, but the body of the quilt can have only one shape.
  • Borders and applique are allowed but should be an accent, not the focus.

Quilts can be one-person, two-person or group. Add a little charm to your life in 2017!


Sponsored by the Quilter’s Guild of Dallas

TVAA’s Earth Day exhibit call for art

2017 Earth Day Poster

TVAA Downtown Gallery announces a call for entries (Due on March 20)
EARTH DAY April 03 – 28, 2017

Twenty million Americans took to the streets on April 22, 1970 to protest the deterioration of their environment due to the ravages of the industrial revolution. By the end of that year, the first Earth Day had led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. By 1990, Earth Day was a global event, mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries. Today, in spite of climate change deniers and well-funded lobbyists, Earth Day has become the largest secular observance in the world, celebrated by more than a billion people every year, and a day of action that changes human behavior and provokes policy changes.

The TVAA Gallery will once again celebrate Earth Day this April with an exhibit of art inspired by our concern for environmental issues. Work in any medium will be considered.

Prospectus: 2017 Earth Day Prospectus (doc) and 2017 Earth Day Prospectus (pdf)

Artist’s Statement: “I rely on instinct a great deal and my sketchbook when selecting subjects for my paintings. The lion’s share of my work is done in one sitting as my real struggle in painting is to capture the initial vision for any given piece. I am most often motivated by capturing a definitive lighting condition and how it influences shape and value rather than faithfully representing the subject as witnessed. Watercolor is uniquely suited for this task as “light” is reserved from the first brush strokes and must be protected throughout the painting process. The underlying narrative in my work is not based on any theme in particular but quite simply how “place” is inhabited and used daily. I often use remember atmospheric and lighting conditions in my work and say that I paint from life and memory simultaneously. My watercolors are not only a translation of what I see, but more importantly, an expression of how I choose to view the world.“

An Empire on Parade: Art and Architecture of the Texas Centennial Exposition March 14

Texas Centennial architecture

Art Deco Experts Jim Parsons, David Bush Headline Heritage Auctions’ Art & Design Speaker Series

An Empire on Parade: Art and Architecture of the Texas Centennial Exposition to be Discussed March 14

Dallas-basedHeritage Auctions recently launched a new Art & Design Speaker Series and the second installment will be heldMarch 14, at the Dallas Design District Showroom, 1518 Slocum Street. Entitled An Empire on Parade: Art and Architecture of the Texas Centennial Exposition the event will feature award-winning Art Deco authors Jim Parsons and David Bush speaking about art and architecture of Fair Park – the public spaces, buildings, sculptures and murals that were designed for the 1936 exposition.  The authors will bring the Centennial Exposition to life in their illustrated lecture, discussing Fair Park’s distinctive buildings and artwork and the stories behind their design.

“Creating the Art Deco art and architecture of Fair Park for the 1936 Texas Centennial Exposition was a monumental task in the depths of the Great Depression — in fact, the exposition’s promoters coined a word, ‘Texanic,’ to describe its scope,” said Jim Parsons. “Today, Fair Park houses one of the world’s largest collections of Art Deco buildings, and it is the only surviving fairgrounds from the golden age of world’s fairs.”

A native of Baytown, Texas, Jim Parsons, puts a passion for the state’s history and architecture to work as director of special projects and walking tours chairman for Preservation Houston who has also written about and photographed cities across the United States. David Bush was born and raised in New Orleans, where he developed his lifelong interest in historic architecture. Jim and David are co-authors of three award-winning books about Art Deco architecture in Texas: Houston Deco, Hill Country Deco and Fair Park Deco. Their fourth book, Dallas-Fort Worth Deco, is due for a late summer release by TCU Press of Fort Worth.

“Our goal with the speaker series is to engage the North Texas design community with thoughtful and informative presentations relating to design trends and key influencers. The March event featuring award-winning authors and Art Deco experts Jim Parsons and David Bush will further elevate the Speaker Series as a must-attend event for North Texas designers and collectors,” said Ed Beardsley, Vice President of Heritage Auctions.

The Art & Design Speaker Series is designed to entertain and inform North Texas designers and art collectors about new design trends, discuss developments in the art community and introduce clients to interesting art and designer personalities. The March 14event which will begin at 6 p.m. will also highlight the upcoming March 17-19 Through the Modernist Lens: A Distinctive Hollywood Collection of Art Deco and 20th Century Art auction. A book signing will follow the presentation and Q&A session.

The inaugural event of 2017 featured nationally known interior designer John Phifer Marrs speaking about Clients with a Dream: Creating Beautiful Interiors for Collectors in February and was a resounding success.

Reception March 3 for Jeremy Lock at JM Gallery

unnamed (39)

Join JM Gallery Friday, March 3, from 6 until 9 for an opening reception featuring photographs from Jeremy Lock. 

JM Gallery, 1722 Routh Street Suite 106, Dallas, Tx 75201

During his adrenaline-filled career as a military photographer, Jeremy Lock documented battles, disasters, and everyday life in Afghanistan, Iraq, Japan, Haiti, Mongolia, and many other locations. He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for distinguished service in Iraq, and was named Military Photojournalist of the Year seven times. Though no longer in the military, Jeremy’s intense vision and passion continue to motivate and inspire him and his work. He travels constantly, documenting landscapes that evoke the frightening power and awesome beauty of our world and capturing images of the people who occupy it that evoke the essence and reality of humanity at its finest and its worst. As he explains, “Not only do I get to live my life, but I’ve been able to live the lives of those I photograph, even if it was just for a moment. I thrive on sharing those experiences.” For this show, Jeremy shares his experiences with a collection of aerial landscapes and portraits from around the world. The vistas and people, though far-flung and diverse, are united in his photographs by pattern, shape, color, and texture. African deserts, Alaskan tundra, an old man’s face—all very different, yet with so much in common, if we know how to look. These photographs help us to see past our differences and understand how much of the world and our human experience within it are held in common.
