Opening Reception April 28, 6:30 p.m.
John Henry is known worldwide for his large-scale public works of art, which grace numerous museum, corporate, public and private collections. In the Dallas area, his sculptures may be seen in front of the Hall Arts Building in the Dallas Arts District.
The geometric forms that have defined John’s work for more than forty years have their aesthetic and historical base in Constructivism. John received a Ford Foundation grant to attend the Art Institute of Chicago, where he earned a BFA. He received an Honorary Doctor of Arts from the University of Kentucky in 1996. He was a founding member of ConStruct, the artist-owned gallery that promoted and organized large-scale sculpture exhibitions throughout the United States.
Some recent exhibitions include: OPEN 2007, Venice, Italy; Sarasota Season of Sculpture 4, Sarasota, FL, 2007; American Sculptors in the Shadow of the Alps, Art St. Urban, Switzerland, 2007; Sculpture a Wyoming Invitational at the University of Wyoming, Laramie, 2008; his one-man exhibition throughout the state of Florida, Drawing in Space: The Peninsula Project, 2008/09, Sculpture for New Orleans, 2009, and Art in the Garden at the San Antonio Botanical Garden, July 2009.
Henry’s exhibit at the Museum of Geometric and MADI Art opens April 28 and runs until July 23. John Henry will be onsite for the Opening and for an Arcadia Salon discussion on May 18 at 6:30 p.m.

Join JM Gallery Saturday, April 22, from 5 until 8 for our opening reception featuring ceramicist Linda Gossett.
JM Gallery is pleased to present a collection of porcelain assemblages by Linda Gossett. Starting with a curious cache of found objects, Linda recasts and playfully reassembles her material into talismanic figurines that appear both familiar and absurd. Mass-produced, plaster tchotchkes become refined collectibles in the style of 18th-century European ceramics—refined but nonsensical, as hands emerge from birds’ breasts, shoes grow out of a duck’s head on a deer’s body, and children’s legs run away with an eagle. This is an imagery of contrast meant to challenge our preconceptions. Where we normally expect to see cheap plaster knickknacks, we see light, fragile porcelain; but then, where we expect to see elegant subjects, we see new forms of absurdity and incongruity. With such contrasts, Linda questions cultural values—what do we value, what do we desire, and where does the desire for possession enter the conversation? As she explains, “I offer my art as a springboard for the imagination.”
|ABOUT JM GALLERY // JM Gallery offers works of art on paper and sculptural forms that engage both the eye and the mind. The gallery promotes artists who create smart, visually compelling work and showcases their art in a space that is inviting and accessible. JM Gallery is committed to working closely with artists as they develop their work and careers and to developing lasting relationships with collectors. In collaboration with area schools and non-profits, they enrich the creative community by teaching artists and collectors about navigating the complex world of art.

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.
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’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.

Photoshop for Artists
In this workshop you will gain confidence in the fundamental aspects of digital images, Photoshop editing and compositing. You will broaden your creative spectrum with techniques for overlaying and mixing your physical art and digital photography with your own creative style. You will also learn how to know with certainty what your digital colors should look like when reproduced physically.
The workshop is structured in morning and afternoon segments consisting of instruction and demonstration, followed by group discussion, then a block of time for experimentation, and, because the class size is kept small, ample time for Brad to provide one-on-one problem solving for each attendee during each experimentation session.
Topics include resolution, compression, layers, masks, selections, channels, transformations, curves, levels, histograms, filters, brushes, blends, gradients, groups, sharpening, textures, distortions, color spaces, and much more.
Brad will help you climb Photoshop’s steep initial learning curve quickly and safely, so you can confidently embark on your own personal exploration of the vast world of creative possibility that Photoshop opens up to you.
About the Instructor
Brad Funkhouser graduated from The University of Texas in 1986 with a degree in Computer Science and has lived in the North Dallas area ever since. He began using Photoshop with its initial release in 1990 and has actively ridden the leading edge in the emerging fields of digital imaging and color management, specializing in fine art reproduction services. He loves to research technologies, experiment, refine processes, and teach what he’s learned.

The Richard Brettell Award in the Arts at UT Dallas, established in 2016 with an endowment from Mrs. Eugene McDermott, recognizes the essential and fundamental role in the arts in the life of the university. The award honors an artist working in or between any of the broad spectrum of artistic endeavors, including the visual arts, music, literature, performance, and architecture/design.
Given every other year, the award consists of a prize of $150,000 and a week’s residence on the UT Dallas campus and in Dallas, during which the awardee will present a major public lecture and interact in a variety of venues with the students, staff and faculty of UT Dallas and with the larger arts community of the Dallas-Ft. Worth area.
Prospective awardees will be nominated by the Brettell Award Advisory Committee, composed of international leaders in arts and culture, with the selection of the awardee being made by an Executive Committee composed of university and community leaders.
The concept of the Brettell Award is inspired by the Eugene McDermott Award in the Arts at MIT, created by the McDermott Family at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1974. The MIT McDermott Award is also made every other year, and it is planned to schedule the two events in alternating years.

Kelsey Heimerman and Sammy Rat Rios
Curated by Seth Lorenz
Two women, lots of color and two ways of seeing the world.
Kelsey Heimerman is an objective painter that mainly paints “figures (that) are her metaphorical haystacks and they reflect our contemporary world. Using distortion, engorged layers of firm, deliberate and bleeding paint become objectified as they describe flesh, spaces, animals and a codex of modern iconography.As a seeker of knowledge and a person people are drawn to, Heimerman strives to become a part of the American female narrative. Influenced by Frida Kahlo, Keith Haring, Henry Darger, Hemonous Boch, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and Rosson Crow she continues diligently Project people projecting visions of a dreamlike futuristic world where all people are accepted.”
Sammy Rat Rios is a multifaceted Dallas artist, she is a musician, actress, and painter to name a few. Although her main focus is her music, her paintings are wonderful non-objective examples of her personal aesthetic. Everything she does, whether it be painting, singing, acting, or walking down the street, she does with a grace and style quite unique to herself. She is drawn to color, design, and clean simple aesthetics and she expresses these magnetisms boldly in her paintings.
