2017 Cedars Open Studios

Saturday, November 18, 2017

10 am – 6 pm

https://www.facebook.com/events/300191423781359/

Now in our 15th year, cedars open studios is the largest event of the year in The Cedars. The Cedars, Dallas, Texas has long been home to a diverse group of Dallas painters, photographers, sculptors and musicians who have contributed to the deep and gritty history of the neighborhood.

Watch live demos and meet renowned artists such as Bowman Glass / Artists in Glass, Albert Scherbarth, Rick Maxwell and TONY COLLINS art + home. Visit the growing number of galleries including Ro2 Art, Janette Kennedy Gallery and Cedars Art House.

Special exhibits this year include The Museum of Street Culture “Looking for Home” featuring the photography by Mary Ellen Mark. The installation in Encore Park Dallas traces the life of Tiny, a 13-year-old runaway teen when Mark first encountered her in Seattle, Washington, in 1983, while Mark was working on a story for Life Magazine.

Dallas Heritage Village at Old City Park exhibit “Neighborhoods We Called Home,” explores the historic neighborhoods of Dallas that served as strong, supportive communities for African American, Hispanic, and Jewish Dallasites from the early 1900s and beyond.

The evening will culminate with the annual tradition “The Decorating of the Tree” by Bowman Glass / Artists in Glass followed by special events at Buzzworks and the newly reopened Longhorn Ballroom!

Bike Friendly Cedars will lead a pedal powered tour of the studios and Lime Bike will have bikes available at a special rate for visitors.

If you’ve never been to the Cedars, now is a great chance to learn about the neighborhood – itself an evolving work of art.

STALLMAN / MARS : ‘Iconic Patterns’ at Laura Rathe

Dallas Design District gallery, Laura Rathe Fine Art, presents the exhibition, ‘Iconic Patterns,’ featuring new works by acclaimed artist duo, Stallman, and contemporary mixed media artist, Robert Mars. Though their work differs greatly in terms of technique, subject, and medium, Stallman and Mars share an interest in creating dynamic compositions that incorporate energetic forms, patterns, and colors. LRFA’s first exhibition featuring the work of Robert Mars, ‘Iconic Patterns,’ will be on view through December 30, 2017. Opening reception on Saturday, November 18th from 5-8pm.

DALLAS DESIGN DISTRICT / 1130 Dragon St., Suite 130 / Dallas, TX 75207 / 214.761.2000

http://www.laurarathe.com

 

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Based in the Pacific Northwest, artists Stephen Stum and Jason Hallman (collectively known as Stallman) meld their creative energies to produce mesmerizing works that fall somewhere between the categories of painting and sculpture. Since 2012, they have collaborated on their Canvas on Edge series, which molds painted strips of canvas into compositions that shift in color and form depending on the viewer’s perspective. The strips’ painted edges gather to create elevated line drawings that recall cellular processes and organic forms drawn from nature.

Represented in five states, Stallman have exhibited their work in such far-flung cities as New York, Seattle, Chicago, Miami, and Laguna Beach, California. Recently awarded the Carol Duke Artist Award of Excellence from the Bellevue Art Museum ARTSfair, their work has also been featured in many publications, including Vanguard Seattle, My Modern Met, LUXE Interiors + Design, and Fahrenheit magazine.

 

 

Robert Mars’s mixed media works layer vintage paper ephemera, acrylic polymer image transfers, and hand-painted elements to reveal striking contemporary visions of America’s past. Chronicling the artist’s fascination with 50s and 60s American iconography, Mars’s work depicts popular consumer goods and architectural and mechanical icons of the era, alongside striking portraits of bygone celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, and Audrey Hepburn. Mars’s careful manipulation of color, text, and symbol transform these age-old icons into images that resonate with renewed contemporary vitality.

A graduate of Parsons School of Design and currently based in Connecticut, Robert Mars has exhibited his work worldwide in such cities as Munich, Tokyo, Amsterdam, London, New York, Los Angeles, and Paris. In 2016 the Evansville Museum of Art in Indiana hosted a solo exhibition of his work, which is also permanently held in the collections of the Coral Springs Museum of Art, the International Museum of Collage, and the New Bedford Art Museum.

Elements: Brenda Woodson & Asher Swan at ArtSpace at Metropolitan Press


Now Showing at ArtSpace at Metropolitan Press: Elements

November 1-22, 2017 | Reception November 9, 6-9pm

ArtSpace at Metropolitan Press presents the November show, Elements, curated by The Artsy Monkey LLC. Artist Brenda Woodson and Photographer Asher Swan have joined forces for a unique exhibition of paintings and photography that explore the four major elements.

Showing: November 1-22, 2017
Viewing Hours: MondayFriday, 9am-4:30pm
Artist Reception: Thursday, November 9, 6-9pm

From Brenda Woodson: “I create abstract acrylic paintings utilizing the circle to explore perfection, the self, and wholeness… The painting technique I use involves scraping paint onto the canvas to create a focal point and then texturizing the surface to reveal irregularities and imperfections. This creates a contrast between the symbolic shape and the imperfect reality. My art aims to represent how, in our individual journey for wholeness, we must learn to accept imperfections in ourselves and others.”

From Asher Swan: “When selecting these images for this show I wanted to depict a unique perspective of what the elements of nature can encompass. I wanted to give thought and resonance to the landscape to which we live through my imagery. The abandoned series I call “The Things we leave Behind” I have selected because we as humans tend to inhabit a place and when done leave it the wind and let earth have it back. The images tell the story of that. What once was so dear and important to someone is now left to the Elements to regain.”

To find out more about the artists or The Artsy Monkey LLC, visit www.facebook.com/artsymonkey.


ArtSpace hours: MondayFriday, 9am-4:30pm & for the Artist Reception, November 9, 6-9pm

Open to the public, the ArtSpace gallery is located inside the Metropolitan Press building at 1250 Majesty Drive in Dallas. We feature both up-and-coming and established artists on a monthly rotation.

The morning program will engage in a conversation exploring the religious context and significance of Zurbarán’s works from the vantage points of Judaism, Islam, and Christianity, while the afternoon sessions will focus on broad historical, art historical, and musical contexts.

Jacob and the Bishop:
Where Faith and Art Meet
Tuesday, November 14, 7:30 p.m
N.T. Wright, Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at St. Mary’s College, University of St. Andrews, Scotland
Bishop Richard Trevor of Durham bought Jacob and His Twelve Sons by the Spanish master Francisco de Zurbarán in 1756, and extended the Long Dining Room at Auckland Castle to provide a worthy showcase for the group. The purchase of the series was intended to communicate to the leaders of northern England the fact, which was very controversial at the time and from time to time since then, that the Jewish people and their traditions have a valued and honored place in national life. Apart from brief absences for exhibitions, the paintings have been there ever since, still conveying the same message for consideration by today’s pluralistic society. The paintings invite contemplation of the way in which art reflects on ancient traditions and out into the wider world. They also communicate the way in which faith and art, so often polarized today, can and perhaps should inform and reinforce one another. As the former Bishop of Durham, Wright lived daily in the presence of Zurbarán’s Jacob and His Twelve Sons at Auckland Castle.

Tauba Auerbach studied at Stanford University and has had numerous solo exhibitions including Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, UK; Bergen Kunsthall, Norway; Malmö Konsthall, Sweden; Wiels Contemporary Art Center, Belgium; Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art, San Francisco, CA; as well as participated in numerous group exhibitions in institutions such as the Academy of Arts, Architecture, and Design, Prague, Czech Republic; National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C.; SFMOMA, San Francisco, CA; and Musee D’Art Moderne, Paris, France.

Join JM Gallery for an Reception Nov. 11 Featuring Photography from Shawn Saumell

Join JM Gallery this Saturday, November 11, from 5 until 8 for our opening reception featuring photography by Shawn Saumell. First 50 guests will receive a complimentary copy of Shawn’s limited edition artist book A Lot to Say.

Shawn Saumell returns with two bodies of work, a ply and in a moment…for a moment, asking us to reconsider our understanding of photography and perception.  With a ply, Shawn explores our perceptions of reality and the way photographs “represent” that reality. On one level, these are simply images of tissues suspended in space and photographed. But they are much more than pictures “of” tissues. Disassociated from its original context, the physical reality of the tissue transforms into something else. Undulating, overlapping planes float in a mysterious space and appear as anything from metaphysical landscapes to conceptual architecture. As Shawn explains, “A clean pure energy is charged from the taint of our daily lives teetering on the idea of an aesthetic truth.” in a moment…for a moment explores our notion of time and moments. It is often said that photographs capture “moments,” but what is a moment? And can we capture a moment to dwell in it without the effects of time? We think of moments as points in time, distinct from the past and the future. Such moments, though, are meaningful only in light of our memories of the past and our expectations for the future. Neither past nor future, each moment becomes the past in an instant—in a moment?—as we flow, unceasing, into the future. These images, themselves captured moments, evoke the ephemeral nature of time and memory and question what it means to exist in a moment.

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.

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.

Through a wide variety of craft media such as basketry, botanical dyes, ceramics, and installation art, Tierra Firme creates a variety of portraits about a personal subject, their home on the TXMX borderlands. Investigating ideas of memory, construction of identity, land, and sky, Tierra Firme reinterprets the narrative of the borderlands through an intimate lens.

The exhibition Orbital Migration draws its name from the idea of the cyclical relationship Latinos have with their homeland, whether emotional, monetary, or through movement. The term is also used in astronomy to refer to a major change of a planet’s orbit around its host star. Furthering the exhibition’s connection to the sky, land, and identity, Tierra Firme is inspired by the panoramic mountain aesthetics of the West Texas region, the tropical deserts of the South Texas Plains, and the civic border landscape.

 

Artists’ Bio:

TIERRA FIRME is the project-based collaboration of Analise Minjarez & Sarita Westrup. These daughters of the border region also pursue individual artist practices grounded in Fibers + Sculpture.

TIERRA FIRME speaks to their identity as women born and raised on the border of Texas and Mexico. Their project based installation explores issues of duality, authenticity, cultural geography, and migration. Through creating artworks that respond to the physical landscape of the region, TIERRA FIRME reflects on the bi-cultural aesthetics of their border home.

Recently, Tierra Firme was awarded the 2017 Arch and Anne Giles Kimbrough Fund Award from the Dallas Museum of Art. Tierra Firme has exhibited works at Brick Haus Studios in Denton, TX, Box 13 Artspace in Houston, TX, Pegasus Plaza, Oak Cliff Cultural Center, Latino Cultural Center, and Kirk Hopper Gallery in Dallas, TX. They currently live and work in Denton and Dallas, TX.

FERNANDO TABUENCA
FOUNDER AND PRINCIPAL, TABUENCA & LEACHE ARQUITECTOS
PAMPLONA, SPAIN
 
14 November 2017
Tuesday, 7:00 pm
 
Reception and check-in 6:15 from 6:156:55
Magnolia Theater, West Village
Presented in partnership with UTA-CAPPA
 
Since its foundation in 1994 by Fernando Tabuenca and Jesús Leache, Tabuenca & Leache Arquitectos, a firm settled in Pamplona (Spain), has developed a wide variety of projects, from urban design to architectural design (new buildings for residential, industrial, cultural, sport, education, religious, etc.), and also renovations, interior design and product design.
 
In the late 90’s, Tabuenca and his partner were selected by the prestigious architects Rafael Moneo and Alvaro Siza, together with five other young architectural teams, to be among the most relevant emergent Iberian architects and to show their early work at the 1st Spanish-Portuguese Architectural Encounters organized by Dukes of Soria Foundation held in Lisbon.
 
Since then, they have received many awards and recognitions in Spain from architects associations and institutions such as FAD, CSCAE, COAVN, COAM, ASCER, EGURTEK, to mention but a few, and from abroad: Fondazione Frate Sole, University of Ferrara, Faith and Form-American Institute of Architects, ECOLA, European Union Prize-Mies Van der Rohe and other well-known institutions. Their works have been published in various international magazines like El Croquis, A&V, Arquitectura Viva, Casabella, Detail, Architekture Aktuell, AIT, Octogon, A+U and many others.
 
Two significant built projects are the restoration and renovation of the Constable’s House and Saint George’s Parish Church, both in Pamplona. The first project has been published in the latest issue of Casabella magazine and in many other publications, and has won an American Architectural Prize. The Parish Church has received the Honor Award for Religious Architecture (IFRAA), has been exhibited at the AIA Small Project Awards Exhibition in Chicago and has also been broadly published in architectural magazines.
 
Fernando Tabuenca has lectured in Spain, Italy, France and Taiwan. At the present time, he is an associate professor in the College of Engineering and Architecture at the University of Zaragoza. Tabuenca has also taught in Pamplona, Madrid and Buenos Aires, and he is now a visiting associate professor at Cornell University.
 

About the Dallas Architecture Forum
 
The Dallas Architecture Forum is a not-for-profit civic organization that brings leading architectural thought leaders from around the world to speak in Dallas and also fosters important local dialogue about the major issues impacting our urban environment.  The Forum was founded in 1996 by some of Dallas’ leading architects, business, cultural and civic leaders, and it continues to benefit from active support and guidance from these citizens. The Forum fulfills its mission of providing a continuing and challenging public discourse on architecture and urban design in – and for – the Dallas area. The Dallas Architecture Forum’s members include architects, design professionals, students and educators, and a broad range of civic-minded individuals and companies intent to improve the urban environment in North Texas.  The Forum has been recognized nationally with an AIA Collaboration Achievement Award for its strategic partnerships with other organizations focused on architecture, urban planning and the arts.  For more information on the Forum, visit www.DallasArchitectureForum.org
 
Among the over 230 speakers who have addressed the Forum’s Lecture Series  are Shigeru Ban,  Brad Cloepfil,  Diller + Scofidio, Peter Eisenman, Michael Graves,  Daniel Libeskind,  Thomas Phifer,  Rafael Vinoly, Juhani Pallasmaa, AIA Gold Medal Winner Peter Bohlin, and  regional architects David Lake and Ted Flato.  Pritzker Prize winners speaking to the Forum have been Kazuyo Sejima, Rafael Moneo, Thom Mayne, Rem Koolhaas and Norman Foster (the latter two in collaboration with the ATT Performing Arts Center).   Other speakers for the Forum have been leading designers Calvin Tsao, Andrée Putman, and Karim Rashid; landscape architect Michael Van Valkenburgh; and National Trust President Emeritus Richard Moe.  Important critics, authors and patrons who have spoken to the Forum include Emily Pulitzer, Terence Riley, Pulitzer Prize winners Robert Campbell and Blair Kamin, Aaron Betsky, and the late David Dillon.
 
The Forum organizes and presents an annual series of Panels—local, informal, open, and offered free of charge as a public service to the community—led by a moderator who brings a subject of local importance along with comments by participating panelists.  Moderators and Panelists have also come from both other Texas cities as well as from national institutions that were connected with particular Panel subjects.  Panels offer attendees the opportunity to participate in creating discourse.  Important topics addressed in Panels in recent years include: “Thoughts on the Dallas Comprehensive Plan”; “The Kimbell Expansion: A Discussion”; “Filling Out the Dallas Arts District”; and “Re-envisioning the Trinity”.

On Creativity…
In Oaxaca creativity is not just something people pursue, it’s imbedded in how they live their lives. I’m here this week for Dia de
los Muertos and can’t help but feel I’m a lucky particle inside a kaleidoscope of colors, shapes, tastes, sounds, aromas and rhythms.
Expression is everywhere and is valued as a vital part of life. You can thank the indigenous cultures which are the main ingredient (with a dash of colonialism) of this artful living. Whether it’s hand-painting colorful wooden sculptures with an agave paintbrush, shaping black pottery, hand weaving intricate textiles or cooking one of the seven famed mole dishes, “doing” and “making” are intertwined with being.
In Oaxaca there is a beautiful union between the sacred and the everyday, and nowhere is that more expressed in its Dia de los Muertos festival. During this time the living come together to rejoice the return of their ancestors. The joy, humility and devotion is present throughout the celebration.
If you want to partake in creativity on steroids, come to Oaxaca and expect to be bewitched.

Diana Pollak
Executive Director

Opening Sat., Nov. 4 at Ro2 Art | Joshua Goode: Pegasus Armor + Erika Duque: Paraíso

Joshua Goode
Pegasus Armor

November 4 – December 2

Opening Reception:
Saturday, November 4, 7-10 pm

Ro2 Art is pleased to present ‘Pegasus Armor,’ a solo exhibition featuring new works by Dallas artist Joshua Goode. The show will run from November 4 through December 2, 2017. There will be an opening reception held Saturday, November 4, from 7-10 p.m. at Ro2 Art, located at 1501 S. Ervay Street in Dallas’ Cedars neighborhood.

As an artist, Joshua Goode fabricates convincing archaeological evidence to support the existence of the imaginary Aurora-Rhoman civilization, preserving his childhood memories in the guise of ancient artifacts. This personal mythology is bolstered by Goode’s staged archaeological digs, which allow the artist to adopt and distort both the historical and mythological aspects of various regions around the world. Inspired by amateur archaeologists such as Heinrich Schliemann who discovered Troy, and by past elaborate hoaxes like that of the Piltdown Man, Goode uses his “discoveries” to manipulate and verify his invented civilization.

About the artist


Erika Duque
Paraíso

November 4 – December 2

Opening Reception:
Saturday, November 4, 7-10 pm

Paraiso reflects on artist Erika Duque’s recent trip to Tulum, Mexico and the lush jungles and vegetation that she saw during her time there. Paraiso translates to paradise in Spanish and Duque’s paintings reflect the tropical paradise of her trip with bright vibrant colors of orange and reds as well as sharp verdant greens. Duque painted with a specific color palette and looser strokes in order to intensify the dream like qualities of the subject matter and take the viewer to a pleasurable worry free locale. For Duque, the paintings in Paraiso reflect both memories and pleasure.

The Dallas Architecture Forum presents the 2017 Dallas Design Symposium with speakers Jenny Moore, Director, Chinati Foundation and Joseph Thompson, Founding Director, MASS MoCA.

The Chinati Foundation and MASS MoCA are two acclaimed centers for art that have repurposed abandoned spaces to create innovative and internationally recognized centers for the display of art.

The Forum’s 2017 Design Symposium will present the directors of these two centers in compelling conversation as they each overview their organization, including how the site was repurposed as a center for the display of art, often at a scale and scope not possible in more conventional settings. Ms. Moore and Mr. Thompson will highlight some of the iconic art on display at their centers.

Ms. Moore will  also overview the new master plan for Chinati, and Mr. Thompson will highlight the major MASS MoCA campus expansion that was recently completed.  The symposium will conclude with a moderated conversation and audience questions.

Art Con is Art Conspiracy’s signature event that began in 2005. Combining the forces of creativity and philanthropy, we set out to create public awareness for the arts and to bring artists and musicians together – to “conspire” for the benefit of the local arts scene. Since Art Conspiracy began operation, it has raised close to $300,000 for small programs that provide arts and music programming in North Texas, including Music Is Our Weapon, Make Art with Peace, La Reunion, Girls Rock Dallas, My Possibilities and Preservation Link, among other worthy causes.

Completed works will be presented for live auction with bids starting at $20, raising money for this year’s beneficiary, SEEK the Peace http://seekingpeace.org/.

Made for T.V. – Opens Thursday, 11/ 2
“A group exhibition curated by Raymond Butler”

November 2 – November 18
Kettle Art

2650 Main St, Dallas, Texas 75226
Kettle Art is proud to host ‘”Made for TV” a group exhibition featuring the work of Christopher Machorro, Franco Fazio, Max Quest, and guest curator Raymond Butler. Together these artists explore pop culture, street art, cartoons, video games, etc. reflecting sentimental values from their personal perspectives.. All works use vibrant colors and playful imagery to entertain, challenge, and guide the viewer.

Made for T.V – About the Artists.

Christopher Machorro : I specialize in illustration with a background in Graphic Design and Street Art. My art style comes from a combination of Pop Surrealism, Graffiti, and Low Brow Art where I emphasize the combination of different colors as my focus when producing works. Some of my inspiration come from adult swim animations, pop culture, and music which influence the imagery produce.

Max Quest : I go by the name Max Quest, originally born in Mexico I grew up watching anime and Saturday morning cartoons on Cartoon Network. What stood out to me the most about those shows were the bright vivid colors. No matter what the mood being fed by the images portrayed the colors mellowed the tone by masking it with this fun spectrum of color. Which sometimes hid in plain sight violence, tragedy, or sadness. These shows along with my passion for drawing inspired me to explore my interest in color. Today my work uses the same techniques to represent metaphors of my own personal experiences. It’s a way for me to cope with adulthood and make sense of the world around me. The images in my work spawn from graffiti, cartoons and pop culture.

Franco Fazio :As an artist, my work often represents a transition of states, and heavy juxtaposition as a mean of challenging and subverting the perceived merit of traditional imagery within art. My work pulls heavily, and sometimes directly from ideas associated with pop-culture and street art. I often try to sample small aspects of established works within fine art and submerge them into heavily pop-culture influenced pieces as a means of asking questions; namely, is the incorporation of a pre-established and successful work cheapened in a contemporary context? And are the two worlds mutually exclusive? I like to think that the contrast of imagery and different cultural contexts persuades viewers to analyze the contrasting elements as a cohesive idea. Another consistency in my work is the implementation of vague and abstracted figures, often intertwined by a gloved hand attached to a seemingly endless arm. I use this as a physical representation of my love of pop-culture and its hold on me, and what I believe to be its hold on society to a greater extent. The reach of pop-culture is powerful, and I think it’s often discredited. Whether viewed as cynical or endearing, It’s my perspective that contemporary artists should be encouraged to borrow and recycle ideas from established work in an effort to shift preconceived perceptions of originality—allowing for alternative methods to describe the work in a new context, this redefines the appropriated imagery and allows for the juxtaposition of elements to suggest new meaning in ideas.

Raymond Butler: I’m a Dallas based artist and curator. Currently, I am the Gallery Director of the H. Paxton Moore Gallery at El Centro College. In the past, my work has consisted of painting, drawing, sculpture, and collage. My most recent work revolves around my experiences growing up in a rough part of Dallas in the ’90s. There weren’t a lot of children in my neighborhood to play with, so I spent a lot of time watching television, eating sandwiches, drawing and hanging out with family.

The Importance of Sandwiches and Cartoon houses:
It seems like a random thing to mention in the grand scheme of my childhood, but I found creative inspiration in the remembrance of sandwiches, the food of champions for most kids growing up poor in America. For some time, I’ve been creating handmade wooden versions of sandwiches I call “Sammys.” They are a nostalgic, tongue-in-cheek representation of the ups and downs of my upbringing. They are all different in some ways; anthropomorphised cartoonishly, sometimes missing details of what one might expect to be on a sandwich. This could be interpreted a number of ways, but I’m focusing on how the contents of the sandwiches depended on the availability of resources from my childhood.

Like the cartoons I adored so much, these pieces are not only an expression of the time and environment of my youth but also an escape: the Sammys make absurdly funny faces, almost in reaction to those cartoons, which in turn offered humor, violence, and endless entertainment away from the realities of my world. But it wasn’t all doom and gloom. Buried within the systemic and social otherization experienced, was a sense of community, of belonging; we worked together and helped each other out despite our own personal barrier.

Donald Vogel exhibition opens Nov. 4 at Valley House Gallery

Donald S. Vogel (1917-2004): A Celebration

November 4 – December 2, 2017

Join us for the opening reception on Saturday, November 4, 6:00pm-8:00pm, for an exhibition of paintings, drawings, and watercolors by Donald S. Vogel, artist and founder of Valley House Gallery, celebrating the 100th anniversary of his birth year.

Donald S. Vogel, along with his wife Peggy, founded Valley House Gallery in 1954. As a studio painter, Vogel allied himself with the temperaments of Vuillard, Renoir, and Bonnard.  In his paintings, he created imagined worlds of color and light; contemplative works that emerge as “moments of pleasure.” His philosophy was to “rejoice and celebrate each new day, knowing it is a gift in itself, and produce something of worth to be shared.”

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.

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.
