Coming to the Geometric MADI Jan. 26: African Ancestral Legacies

African Ancestral Legacies

Opening January 26 at the Museum of Geometric and MADI Art in Dallas is African Ancestral Legacies featuring works by Naomi Wanjiku Gakunga and Tunde Odunlade.

Naomi Wanjiku Gakunga’s mabati art uses galvanized sheet metal to contemporize traditional activities she observed while growing up in Central Kenya. Naomi manipulates metal to explore both material transformation and the contradiction between its qualities.

She says of her art, “I borrow from numerous techniques and processes, which combine in a single aesthetic purpose. I want viewers of my art to experience an intricate and intriguing setting that can be perceived and contemplated endlessly.”
Tunde Odunlade is a print and textile artist. Tunde’s work uses both contemporary and traditional techniques to create art with unusual depth and texture. He is a quadruple-threat artist, with a professional portfolio as an artist, musician, actor, and storyteller.

Tunde Odunlade’s life is well described by his motto: “He who does not attempt the absurd can never achieve the impossible.”

 

Tunde will play African drums, and Naomi will dance, during the opening reception, 6 p.m. January 26, 2018.  An Arcadia Salon discussion will be held February 1, 2018 at 6 p.m. The exhibit runs through April 22, 2018, and is guest curated by Phillip Collins.
About The Museum of Geometric and MADI Art:
Located in Uptown Dallas, the Museum of Geometric and MADI Art (the MADI) is the only museum dedicated to MADI art and the primary point of focus for the MADI movement in the United States.

MEADOWS MUSEUM ACQUIRES LAST PAINTING OF SPANISH MASTER MARIANO FORTUNY Y MARSAL

In the Private Collection of an American Family Since Fortuny’s Death, It Represented the

Best of Foreign Art in the Americas at 1893 Chicago World’s Fair

 

DALLAS (SMU), January 18, 2018— The Meadows Museum, SMU, announced today that it has acquired Beach at Portici, the last painting of famed Spanish artist Mariano Fortuny y Marsal (1838-1874). The nearly finished painting—which is unusual for its large scale, relative to much of the artist’s work—depicts the enjoyment of a summer day at the beach, and demonstrates Fortuny’s hallmark ability to capture light in paint. Fortuny was an especially popular artist with 19th-century American collectors and audiences, as the particularly American provenance of this work reveals. Reflecting the high esteem in which Fortuny’s works were held, Beach at Portici was featured prominently in the American Pavilion’s “Loan Collection of Foreign Masterpieces Owned in the United States” at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Considered one of the most important international exhibitions of the 19th century, these works were selected to show off to the Fair’s wide audiences—more than 27 million people visited during its six-month run—the richness and breadth of paintings owned by American collectors and museums, and implicitly, American economic prowess, and refined taste in fine art.

Beach at Portici will be on view at the Meadows Museum beginning January 19, 2018. From June 24 through September 23, it will be the subject of a focused exhibition, At the Beach: Mariano Fortuny y Marsal and William Merritt Chase, where it will be paired with a loan from the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, Chase’s Idle Hours (c. 1894). The Spanish artist had a significant impact on many important American artists and perhaps especially on Chase, who knew his work well and greatly admired it.

In the artist’s possession at the time of his death, Beach at Portici was acquired by the prominent New York collector Alexander Turney Stewart in 1875, and remained with Stewart’s heirs on the East Coast until the Meadows acquired it. The acquisition complements the only oil painting by the artist currently in the Museum’s collection: a smaller, study composition for the painting of the same stretch of beach at Portici. The newly acquired painting includes essential elements of Fortuny’s developing style, such as the dynamically posed figures, the use of strong architectural elements in the background to define the space around the figures, brushwork that anticipates the rise of Impressionism, and meticulous attention to detail.

“Painted in Italy, sold in Paris after his death, and owned exclusively by American collectors in the decades since, Beach at Portici embodies the international character of Fortuny’s brief career,” said Mark Roglán, the Linda P. and William A. Custard Director of the Meadows Museum. “For these reasons, as well as its obvious beauty, it makes a perfect acquisition for the Meadows, addressing our mission to bring the best of Spanish art to American audiences, and to highlight its role in the development of America’s own culture and aesthetic.”

Beach at Portici demonstrates the evolution in Fortuny’s painterly technique as his career progressed, and highlights why his works were so celebrated and sought-after both during his lifetime and after his death. His landscapes capture the extraordinary beauty in everyday moments, and in this work—with the contrast between the extreme attention to detail in some places, such as the trees, beach, and ruins in the background, and his loose handling of paint in other areas, such as the foliage in the foreground of the painting—the viewer can see hints at how his style might have continued to develop had he lived.

Mariano Fortuny y Marsal was born in the Catalonia region of Spain and did his early training in Barcelona, before leaving for further study in Rome. He subsequently spent most of his brief working life in Italy or France, interwoven with travel in Morocco and other parts of North Africa, as well as in southern Spain. During his travels, Fortuny collected carpets, Hispano-Moresque pottery, Islamic metalwork, arms and armor, fabrics and textiles, all of which influenced both the style and subject of his work. His drawings and paintings of historical subjects—such as of the Spanish-Moroccan War (1859-1860), which he memorialized in the painting The Battle of Tetuan (1862-1864)—and his other depictions of 18th-century courtly life, were so popular that the term Fortunismo came to be applied to any artistic representation of those themes during this period. Despite his short life, he is known to have been very prolific.

With his wide-ranging travels and long history of working outside of his home country, Fortuny represents the first generation of truly cosmopolitan Spanish painters. Likewise, the development of his style parallels larger trends in Spanish painting, particularly in the context of European modernism. Fortuny’s works were equally popular in America during his lifetime and in subsequent decades and were acquired by a number of prestigious public institutions here including: the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Harvard Art Museums; the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; the Walters Art Museum, Baltimore; and the Hispanic Society of America, New York City.

Beach at Portici was purchased with funds from Mary Anne Cree, Mrs. Eugene McDermott, Susan Heldt Albritton, Linda P. and William A. Custard, Gwen and Richard Irwin, Shirley and Bill McIntyre, Cyrena Nolan, Peggy and Carl Sewell, Pilar and Jay Henry, Barbara and Mike McKenzie, Caren Prothro, Marilyn Augur, Dr. and Mrs. Lawrence S. Barzune, Diane and Stuart Bumpas, The Honorable Janet Kafka and Mr. Terry Kafka, the Mr. and Mrs. Walter M. Levy Fund of Communities Foundation of Texas, Stacey and Nicholas McCord, Linda and John McFarland, Catherine Blaffer Taylor, Julie and George Tobolowsky, Cheryl and Kevin Vogel, Diane and P. Gregory Warden, Natalie and George Lee, Bethany and Samuel Holland, President R. Gerald and Gail Turner, Kathleen and Mark Roglán, and an Anonymous Donor.

 

About the Meadows Museum

The Meadows Museum is the leading U.S. institution focused on the study and presentation of the art of Spain. In 1962, Dallas businessman and philanthropist Algur H. Meadows donated his private collection of Spanish paintings, as well as funds to start a museum, to Southern Methodist University. The Museum opened to the public in 1965, marking the first step in fulfilling Meadows’s vision to create “a small Prado for Texas.”

Today, the Meadows is home to one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of Spanish art outside of Spain. The collection spans from the 10th to the 21st centuries and includes medieval objects, Renaissance and Baroque sculptures, and major paintings by Golden Age and modern masters. Since 2010 the Museum has been engaged in a multidimensional partnership with the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid, which has included the exchange of scholarship, exhibitions, works of art, and other resources.

Art Con Select 13 opens Jan. 20 at Kettle Art

Art Con Select 13 
Kettle Art Gallery
2650 Main Street, Dallas TX

Saturday, January 20, 2018
6:00pm-9:00pm

In November 2017, Kettle Art was offered the opportunity to curate an exhibit to spotlight artists that participated in Art Con 13 who caught our eye. The tricky part is the artists are judged on a single piece of work and they must have never shown at our gallery before. These ‘twists’ make this show exciting to put together as we never know what we’ll end up with. However, we do know from past adventures that working with Art Conspiracy is always a blast. We are honored to present Art Con Select 2018 and the results of this unusual curation process.

The artists we have invited to exhibit this year include: Elizabeth Baca, Rachel Spire, Andrew Johnson, Jessica Martinez, Alexis Gabrielle, Luan Luu, Jordan Edwards, Nightshade’s Utopia, Leighton Autry, James, Bevard Hargrave, Gina Bartok, Sully Ridout, Benjamin Painter and Michelle Dekkers.

This show runs through Sunday, January 28th.

Opening Reception: Tiny and Her Children, 1985-1999 + Picturing Homelessness

OPENING RECEPTION: Tiny and Her Children, 1985-1999 + Picturing Homelessness
Saturday, January 27
12:30 – 2:30pm
The Stewpot

 

The Museum of Street Culture at Encore Park, in association with the Mary Ellen Mark Foundation, invites you to the opening of Picturing Homelessness, featuring artworks by children, grades 1-5, in The Stewpot’s Saturday Kids’ Club, and Tiny and Her Children, 1985-1999, the second installation in the incremental and progressive exhibition Looking for Home: A Yearlong Focus on the Work of Mary Ellen Mark.

The opening reception, January 27 from 12:30 – 2:30pm, will include a free taco lunch and a public dialogue with the children artists, their parents, Stewpot clients and staff, and the general public. This program is the first in The Museum of Street Culture Dialogue Series.

Picturing Homelessness was developed as an educational initiative by The Stewpot’s Saturday Kids’ Club and The Museum of Street Culture. The children’s artworks, to be installed in the arched windows of The Stewpot on Young Street and Park Avenue, were created through the collaborative efforts of children in the Saturday Kids’ Club, who were asked to discuss and reflect on issues and stereotypes of homelessness, ideas of home, and how and why we should work to end homelessness.

Tiny and Her Children, 1985-1999 and Picturing Homelessness will be on view on the street and inside The Stewpot. Beginning January 29, 2018, docent led tours by Stewpot clients will be available, free of charge, Monday, Wednesday, Friday 12-1pm.

Looking for Home is curated by Alan Govenar (founding director, The Museum of Street Culture at Encore Park) and Martin Bell, Meredith Lue, and Julia Bezgin (Mary Ellen Mark Foundation), and is supported in part by Encore Park Dallas, Documentary Arts, The Florence Gould Foundation, The Kaleta A. Doolin Foundation, The Stewpot, First Presbyterian Church of Dallas, Moody Foundation, and the Restoration Fund of Communities Foundation of Texas.
Exhibition Design: Studio Adrien Gardère, Architects: Oglesby Greene

The Museum of Street Culture is located in Encore Park in the heart of an historic area of downtown Dallas, flanked by the Farmers Market, City Hall, and the Main Street District. Pioneered by The Stewpot of First Presbyterian Church of Dallas and formally organized as a non-profit organization in 2013, Encore Park is a community of social and cultural services located on the south side of Young Street and on the east and west sides of the 500 block of Park Avenue. Encore Park brings together people of all cultures and faiths through dialogue, education, service, music, and art in the pursuit of abundant life, building community at the crossroads of creativity and caring.

The intention of this exhibition is to show work that explores themes of identity, faith, religion, and the soul. Art should take into consideration how these themes connect to finding positivity and peace, and/or address inner tension and struggle as a woman of color. When addressing these themes, consider the repeated disrespect and unfair treatment of women. Think about the continuous micro-aggressions we endure and how they can alter our perceptions of ourselves and our importance in this world. With this psychologic warfare, it is important particularly for women to speak affirmations over our lives. We ask that you analyze and express these affirmations in your preferred medium.

TVAA’s 2018 New Members Exhibition – reception Jan. 6

New Members Exhibition
January 4 – February 1, 2018

RECEPTION JANUARY 6TH, 2-4PM

The TVAA Downtown Gallery invites all artists who have joined TVAA during 2015 – 2017 to show their work in the 2018 New Members Exhibition. There is no theme for this show, and all media is welcome.

 

About the Curator: Leon Robertson is a self-taught artist that works with primarily pen
and ink illustration. He has explored mixed media using found objects to create a series
titled, The Junkyard Birds. Because so much of his art is inspired by the use of language,
stories often unfold with his art. It is the reason why he prefers to work in an open-series
format. His work has been exhibited in local shows and galleries. Several of the
characters from his ARF & Soul Dog series were published in the book, 1000 Dog
Portraits: From the People Who Love Them. Leon’s passion for art, design and all things
creative was demonstrated in nearly two decades of working in the fashion and home
luxury retail markets.

Call for Art – 2018 El Corazon Exhibition – Bath House Cultural Center – deadline Jan. 6

Exhibition Dates: February 3-March 17, 2018

Entries Deadline: Saturday, January 6, 2018

Applications close at 11:59 PM, Mountain Time Zone, on deadline date.

All entries must be submitted online at www.callforentry.org

Direct Link:

The Bath House Cultural Center and exhibition curator, Jose Vargas, invite visual artists to submit entries for the 24th Annual El Corazón art exhibition.
Since 1993, Mr. Vargas has organized the El Corazón art exhibition in Dallas. This popular exhibition is a beloved annual tradition at the Bath House Cultural Center that gives artists an opportunity to create various artistic interpretations of the human heart. This passionate and eclectic exhibition features a variety of ideas, styles, and concepts inspired by the heart (El Corazón), an important and universal symbol in art.
SUGGESTED THEME: Hearts and Music

Listening to music can be good for the heart. When you hear music, what feelings do you experience? Well, put those feelings onto a canvas (or other media). Think of this exhibition as El Corazón with a musical slant! Create a piece of art based on a favorite song, or a particular style of music, or musician. Or, perhaps, you can do a combination of a heart and a musical instrument. When it comes to combining the symbol of the heart and the concept of music, the possibilities are limitless.

FIRST PLACE
“Dutch Tulips” by Dennis Crayon

“I am painting Trompe-l’œil where part of the painting is in focus the same ways that when you remember something part of the memory is focused and part of the memory is cloudy or deteriorated. I forced grew these tulips at home in the middle of the winter it gave me memories of past springs.”

SECOND PLACE
“Be Who You Are” by Leighann Foster

“You Cannot be Something You Are Not.”

THIRD PLACE
“Bluebonnets in the Early Afternoon” by Liz Rugg

“Can you see the shadows cast by clouds in the afternoon sky?”

PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD
“Late Summer Evening” by Joan Chamberlain

“Flowers from a late summer garden cast interesting shadows across a patio table, set for a couple of wine lovers. Like looking for shapes in the clouds, I can find fun characters in the long, cast shadows of the bottle, flowers and leaves. Can you see the guard dog baring his teeth at anyone daring to steal a sip of wine?”

Moss and Chumley were two Dallas art dealers who made outstanding contributions to the visual arts in North Texas during the 1980s. The pair operated the Nimbus Gallery on Routh Street from 1980 to 1987 and the Moss/Chumley Gallery at the Crescent Court from 1986 to 1989, where they showcased numerous new artists. Established in 1995, the Moss/Chumley North Texas Artist Award is given in their memory.

The winner will be announced in February 2018.

 

About the Meadows Museum

The Meadows Museum is the leading U.S. institution focused on the study and presentation of the art of Spain. In 1962, Dallas businessman and philanthropist Algur H. Meadows donated his private collection of Spanish paintings, as well as funds to start a museum, to Southern Methodist University. The Museum opened to the public in 1965, marking the first step in fulfilling Meadows’s vision to create “a small Prado for Texas.”

 

Today, the Meadows is home to one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of Spanish art outside of Spain. The collection spans from the 10th to the 21st centuries and includes medieval objects, Renaissance and Baroque sculptures, and major paintings by Golden Age and modern masters. Since 2010 the Museum has been engaged in a multidimensional partnership with the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid, which has included the exchange of scholarship, exhibitions, works of art, and other resources.

500x Exhibits this December: A Thing Added, Squeeze Machine & Box 13

December 9, 2017 – January 7, 2018,
Reception – December 9, 7pm-10 pm

 

A Thing Added
Downstairs / Main Gallery

participating artists: Scott Bell, Kathleen Janvier, Adam Knoche, Kathy Lovas, Abby Sherrill, Kristina Smith

The definition of the word adjunct is: a thing added to something else.  The adjunct professors in our DFW community are diverse and studious additions to our university arts programs. This December, 500x Gallery has selected a group of artists who balance their studio time with the demands of a sometimes strenuous teaching schedule.

 

Squeeze Machine 
joint exhibition by Molly Valentine Dierks and Yuni Lee
Upstairs / Project Space

Squeeze Machine brings together the work of Molly Valentine Dierks and Yuni Lee in a 2 person show that explores the artists’ shared interest in the links between humanity and nature. Drawing on the disciplines of Ikebana, Japanese woodblock prints, and traditional Korean artwork, the large-scale paintings and installation borrow from the bright color-scapes and simulacrae of post-industrial culture, creating foreign landscapes from new and recycled materials and forms. Translating elements both familiar and strange, Squeeze Machine is inspired by machinery and ecology, questioning how technology and nature converse in the human void of longing and intimacy.

Box 13 –
Houston Art Collective

Upstairs / Main Gallery

participating artists: Kristy Peet, Daniela Koontz, Emily Link, Caroline Roberts, Melinda Laszczynski, John Forse, Claire Chauvin, David McClain, Lance Brown, Jessica Kreutter, Patrick Phipps, Alexander Squier, Tudor Mitroi

This group show will featured artists from Box 13 Artspace, an artist run nonprofit innovative environment for the creation and advancement of experimental contemporary art in Houston.

John Cobb and Henry Finkelstein exhibitions at Valley House

Opening reception was held on Saturday, December 9, 6:00pm-8:00pm, for two exhibitions, “John Cobb: Reclamation” and “Henry Finkelstein: Paintings.” Preview the exhibitions online at www.valleyhouse.com and scroll down to learn more.

Both exhibitions will be on view through January 20, 2018.

ABOUT John Cobb:

“These small works are the result of a tribulation. Eyes that could see only double, a heart that gave out from chemo, facial surgery to remove half the face; I lived only in hope against hope to be able to work again. With that old dear longing, restored face, renewed heart, and improving health, I started again to recline upon the shores of Texas waterways and vistas wishing to express as simply as possible my love and delight at being able to see and paint again. Also included in this exhibition will be the egg tempera panel, “Christmas,” one of the recent paintings completed for “The Chapel” installation, now 36 years in the making.”
“God bless us one and all.” – Tiny Tim in A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
– John Cobb

When John Cobb enrolled in RISD in 1974, his realist tendencies were ostracized. Using funds intended for his education, Cobb moved to Europe, bought a Vespa, and learned by independent study in museums and by making watercolors in Morocco, Portugal, Spain, France, and Italy. When funds ran low he returned to Austin to finish his art degree at St. Edward’s University. Valley House Gallery has exhibited his work since 2010.

ABOUT Henry Finkelstein:

“Unlike strictly abstract painters, I paint mostly from direct observation. Nature offers me a necessary resistance that I find challenging. To this day, discovering new color relationships as I paint from nature remains a central focus of my work. I am not interested in documenting that fact of where I am, but in trying to convey what that place says to me. I go there, I enjoy the light, I enjoy the history. I’m more interested in my direct feelings from what I see, which come mostly from color. When I draw for a while, looking for a motif, color starts to give me a real buzz and I get excited. For me it’s the feeling I can imbue into the work and hopefully communicate to someone else. It is never fixed, but rather it lives on in its own right. This is the simplicity that I seek.”
– Henry Finkelstein

Henry Finkelstein returns for his eighth solo exhibition at Valley House Gallery since 2002. A residency at Rochefort-en-Terre in Brittany, France, in 1992, and again in 2000, introduced him to this region where he returns each summer to paint. Finkelstein earned his MFA in painting from Yale University School of Art in 1983, followed by a Fulbright Grant to study in Italy. In 1994, he was elected a National Academician. Finkelstein has taught painting and drawing in New York City since 1996.

We look forward to seeing you at Valley House!

Meditation and Abstract Painting FREE workshop at the Bath House Cultural Center

Workshop Date: Saturday, December 16, 2017 (10 AM-4 PM)

Conducted by S. Chuck McCarter

The Bath House Cultural Center will host a free workshop by S. Chuck McCarter on Saturday, December 16, and we want you to be a part of it.


ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:

Experience various approaches to abstraction as you discover and develop your personal artistic signature. Learn the guidelines for color use, concept, composition and design as you stretch the boundaries of your imagination. Learn to trust your own creative instincts—be adventurous with hands and tools, sometimes leaving your brushes behind. Push the boundaries of your materials as well as your art. With guidance and support, you’ll be encouraged to experiment fearlessly and work on your own body of work with the mentoring required for your personal artistic development. Experiment and play your way to beautiful, original and expressive abstract/non-objective paintings.

Space is limited to 10 adult students.

Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

Cecy Turner Oil Landscape Workshop Jan. 23-25

January 23-25, 2018

Oil painting Landscape (Intermediate/Advanced)

Artists’ Showplace Gallery, 15615 Coit Rd., #230, Dallas, TX 75248

http://theartistsshowplace.com/cecy-turner-workshop

Cost: $290 (three days)

Contact: Artists’ Showplace Gallery 972-233-1223

In this workshop we will concentrate largely on UNIFYING A PAINTING by working on achieving color harmony. This will not be a “color workshop,” as I don’t believe that color is THE most important thing in a painting. However, color harmony is many times the thing a person who views a painting will love about it and not even realize it. We will not be using a “mother color” and adding it to every color we mix; instead we will focus on what I call “bending a color.” Also in the workshop, composition, focal point and ways to lead the eye around the painting will also be stressed to further unify a painting.

Recipe of the Month
Christmas Morning Cake

Bouquet With Red Berries Paperweight by Ken Rosenfeld
‘Tis the Season for parties and celebrations with friends and family — a time for treasured traditions and extra special goodies to eat.  This holiday recipe has been so popular over the years that I thought I’d share it with you once again — a new tradition!

My mother always served a wonderful Christmas Morning Cake for brunch during the holidays.  It was a much anticipated part of every Christmas — and often requested as a birthday treat.

This cake has to sit for a couple of days to absorb all the citrus-y goodness poured over the top — presenting a serious temptation to sneak a nibble when nobody else is around…
