The Essential Nature and Freddie McCoo exhibitions at the Bath House

 

Join us for the opening reception of our two new art exhibitions
Saturday, September 2, 20177-9 PM
Featuring live music by Percussion Things – Free and open to the public
Resurface: Artwork by Freddie McCoo

Freddie McCoo’s experiences growing up in St. Louis, Missouri, began to shape his core of artistic sensibilities from an early age. His modest upbringing, careful observation of the world around him, and subsequent deep interest in subjects that focus on social, economic, political, cultural and spiritual issues are clearly manifested in his paintings, murals, and mixed media art.

Freddie’s work is constantly in a state of evolution. Some of his earlier works depict themes that draw inspiration from music, relationships, and the predicaments of living in a disadvantaged community. The artist presently continues to revisit those topics, but his interests have broadened to include concepts that investigate biblical imagery, history, cultural identity, and contemporary political concerns. When it comes to his style and technique, some might suggest that his experience working in large scale murals has provided the artist with the dexterity and clarity to infuse all of his works—through his choices of colors, textures, composition, and scale—with an admirable sense of monumentality and relevance.

A common feature in Freddie’s work is the use of symbols and texts, which often require thorough exploration by the viewer and, often, a bit of decoding. Freddie explains that he has come to appreciate the diversity of symbols and text as long-standing tools of visual communication. He states: “When thoughtfully juxtaposed, both text and symbol can become significantly more relevant and thus begin to reveal certain deep-seated truths.”


The Essential Nature

Featuring artwork by Ruda Anderson, Maureen Brouillette, Jenny DeLaughter, Viola Delgado, Cecelia Feld, Nancy Ferro, Susan Lecky, Mylan Nguyen, Silvia Thornton, Cecilia Thurman, Edith Torres Avendano,and Sarita Westrup.

In every creative discipline, artists express their experiences and emotions in innumerable ways. The methods, techniques, or arrangements that artists choose to illustrate their works’ central idea or principal theme are unsurprisingly diverse, given the universe of perspectives, beliefs, and personal partialities with which artists view the world. Art forms also vary in the degree of extensiveness or simplicity demonstrated by artists as they explore and communicate a message. Whereas some literary works employ long texts that are written with the intention of expanding on a main topic to offer a more meticulous study of a subject through further elaboration, visual art tends to be a deliberate process of elimination and reduction used by many artists to strip concepts and thoughts to their bare essentials.

This exhibition examines the notion that a work of visual art is fully capable of conveying, effectively and economically, complex ideas and narratives. The pieces presented in the show demonstrate that a picture is worth the meaning of ten thousand words. Whether with representational or abstract works, the participating artists express a multiplicity of messages with art that stand for qualities such as clarity, conciseness and simplification. The practical task—intentional or otherwise—of reducing unnecessary elements during the making of visual art does not subtract substance from the works. Reduction of elements in visual arts, normally, does not translate into a dilution of meaning; instead, it leads to an experience where the art reveals only the most indispensable and utterly fundamental aspects of the narratives and concepts investigated by the artists.

Newly Discovered Norman Rockwell Masterpiece Brings $1.6 million at Heritage Auctions

Austin, Texas, family learns ‘framed print’ is actually original painted study

Dallas, Texas (Aug. 20, 2017) — “Tough Call,” a classic original masterpiece by Norman Rockwell  — discovered hanging in Austin, Texas, and considered nothing more than a cheap print  —  has sold for a staggering $1.6 million at a public auction of high-end sports memorabilia held by Heritage Auctions in Dallas. The 16-inch by 15-inch painting was expected to sell for $300,000 but instead realized more than five times pre-auction estimates, once again breaking the record for any Rockwell study.

The buyer remains anonymous at this time.

 

“It is remarkable to still discover such an important Norman Rockwell original artwork after so many years,” said Chris Ivy, director of Sports Memorabilia at Heritage Auctions. “The art community and sports fans all over the world owe thanks to Beans Reardon’s family for preserving this piece of Americana for future generations despite not quite understanding what they had.”

 

The original painting for “Tough Call” was published as a 1949 Saturday Evening Post cover and became an instant classic of American illustration art. Rockwell’s study for the piece (a preliminary work that guided the master’s hand) was gifted to umpire Beans Reardon.

 

Auction house experts realized the work, signed by Rockwell, was much more than a simple print of the famous work. Close inspection showed it was an original oil on paper study for one of Rockwell’s most famous paintings.

 

“The Rockwell discovery is a wonderful story and the auction price exceeded all expectations,” added Chris Ivy, director of Sports Auctions at Heritage.

 

This is the second Rockwell study sold in Dallas recently, as Heritage Rockwell’s study for “Triple Self Portrait”  commanded over $1.3 million just months ago by Heritage Auctions, itself more than tripling any previous record for a Rockwell study.

 

Heritage Auctions is the largest fine art and collectibles auction house founded in the United States, and the world’s largest collectibles auctioneer. Heritage maintains offices in New York, Dallas, Beverly Hills, San Francisco, Chicago, Palm Beach, Paris, Geneva, Amsterdam and Hong Kong.

The Internet’s most popular auction-house website, HA.com, has over one million registered bidder-members, and searchable free archives of four million past auction records with prices realized, descriptions and enlargeable photos.

Bivins Gallery Solo Exhibition Announcement Featuring Richard Hickam: Expressions of Color

Richard Hickam | Mulberry Forest | 1990 | oil on canvas | 67″ x 57″

Opening reception on Sat., September 16, 2017, 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Bivins Gallery in the Uptown Dallas Crescent complex.

Bivins Gallery is pleased to present the vibrant paintings of master colorist Richard Hickam in RichardHickam: Expressions of Color, on view from September 16 through October 21, 2017. The show will occupy the main gallery, and will trace Hickam’s artistic development from photorealism to large-scale abstracts to figurative abstractions, and his dedicated examination of the manipulation of color and brushstroke. Karen and Michael Bivins will host an opening reception for the exhibition with the artist in attendance at BivinsGallery on Sat., September 16, 2017 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. Complimentary valet parking will be provided for the opening and for all guests of Bivins Gallery during normal business hours.

Richard Hickam’s style, technique and influences are constantly evolving, yet his rich palette and unique characterizations make his work distinguishable. Hickam’s career began in the 1970s and was initially influenced by the photorealistic movement that surrounded him. Hickam’s affinity for pushing conventional boundaries transformed his style in the 1980s and 1990s, where his brushstroke loosened and took on an energetic gestural impasto, resulting in a series of large-scale abstractions. In the late 1990s, Hickam began exploring figurative abstraction. Discernable from this body of work are his portraits, whose striking features reflect a collection of inspirations, often combining physical aspects of multiple characters in Hickam’s own life. Through all his stylistic transitions, Hickam’s bold handling of color and tone remain the main subjects of his paintings.

Richard Hickam has been a celebrated American painter for over forty years, and his works have been exhibited in museums across the United States. His career has been the topic of numerous publications, and his works can be found in both private and public collections, including the Richmond Museum of Art, the Columbus Museum of Art, the Canton Museum of Art, and the Beck Center Museum.

Nneka Osueke: Memoirs of Self Love

Showing August 7-25, 2017 | Reception August 10, 6-9pm

Join us this Thursday, August 10 from 6 to 9pm for this month’s ArtSpace reception. Nneka Osueke’s solo show, titled Memoirs of Self Love, showcases her contemplative yet bold nature, the keen eye with which she examines her inner and outer world.

From the artist:
A first-generation Nigerian with a background in fashion and psychology, Nneka Osueke picked up the drawing pencil at the age of 5, painted at 9, and sketched her first fashion illustration at 11. Her work is a direct conversation of the matters of her heart. With uses of surrealism, abstraction and sculpture, she lures out the unconscious, toying with that which reveals and hides itself in, cycles through, torments, and frees the human psyche.

You can find Nneka on Instagram @southernfriedambitious or online at www.nnekaosueke.com or www.southernfriedambitious.com


ArtSpace hours: Monday-Friday, 9am-4:30pm & for the Artist Reception, August 10, 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. To find out more or if you are an artist interested in showing, contact us through our website, www.metpressinc.com

Dallas Piranha Printmakers at Mighty Fine Arts

Opening Reception
Saturday, August 12 at 6 PM – 9 PM

Location: Mighty Fine Arts 409A N.Tyler in Oak Cliff TX 75208

Mighty Fine Arts presents “Dallas Piranha Printmakers” curated by Matt Bagley, master printmaker and head honcho of Iron Frog Press, and featuring work by Courtney Googe, Brian McClure, Terri Thoman, Josh Monroe, Erica Guajardo, Mirka Hokkanen, Junanne Peck, Evita Tezeno, Una Scott, Chris Merlick, Lindsay Burris, Jack Russell, Angela Faz, Gary Uribe, Viktor Otrix, Paul “Arte Chambers” Robey, Scott Krakowski, Amber Crimmings and Matt Bagley.

“Dallas Piranha Printmakers” opens a window onto the burgeoning Dallas print maker community. Printmakers nationwide are experiencing a Renaissance and Dallas is no exception. Despite the lack of any central studio or hub print shop printmakers here have managed to create their own cultural millieu. To be certain these are old school print crafters eschewing digital and electronic technologies in favor of handmade, hand pulled manual dexterity and acumen. This is a DIY world done in home spaces, garage studios or spare closets, wherever an ink slinger can get away with making a mess.But like a pool of piranha they’re hungry for acknowledgement and want to take a bite out of your attention. So come out and support your local print artists and marvel at their virtuosity and fresh creative visions while enhancing your art knowledge of print techniques! Jump in the pool with some accomodating piranha who don’t bite but might want to share an art bone with you!

This show will open Sat, Aug 12 and will run till Sun. Sept.24.

New Works by Matt Manalo in Project Space opening Aug. 19 at KHFA

Assimilation 01. Mixed Media on Panel. 12 x 12 inches.


OPENING 
RECEPTION

Saturday, August 19, 2017

 

New Works by Matt Manalo

August 19 – September 23, 2017

 

 

Kirk Hopper Fine Art (3008 Commerce Street) is pleased to exhibit New Works by Houston artist, Matt Manalo. This exhibit will feature Matt’s most recent mixed media paintings in our project space, opening Saturday, August 19th, with a public reception for the artist from 6.00 – 8.00 pm.

 

Originally from Manila, Philippines, Manalo creates work as a form of an ongoing journal of experiences from his time living in the Philippines in juxtaposition to his life in the United States. At the age of 18, Matt Manalo and his family decided to move to the United States in pursuit of a better life. Although living in a city as diverse as Houston he continues to reconcile his old life with his new life in the largest city in Texas. Matt states, “As an artist, I was looking for a tangible outlet to express my feelings, memories and newfound experiences.” He is constantly redefining his definition of “Home,” while struggling with memories from his homeland and the feeling of being split into two pieces emotionally.

 

Manalo’s work represents an abstracted image of a specific place or memory from either back home or from his new surroundings in Houston. The artist incorporates repetitive marks, shapes, collage and/or stamped images and scratch marks on his work. They signify the amount of “to and fro” with flashbacks that he has when making a piece. One notable aspect of Manalo’s work is the significant amount of physical or visual texture on the surface, which represents the grittiness of living in a city like Manila. As one will notice, Filipino artist Matt Manalo has two very different stories to tell.

 

Concrete (Gray). Mixed Media on Panel. 12 x 12 inches.

 

 

Artist Biography                                     

 

Matt Manalo was born and raised in Manila, Philippines. He moved to the

United States along with his family to pursue his education. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting with a minor in Art History at the University

of Houston. He has always been drawn to making art since he was a child. He grew up being heavily influenced by comic books and cartoons. His intuitive art making process includes the processes of collage, painting, and sculpture. His work talks about his identity as a Filipino and the places he has lived in.


 

 

 

Kirk Hopper Fine Art is located at

3008 Commerce Street, Dallas, Texas 75226 in the Deep Ellum neighborhood.

Gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday from 12pm – 6pm or by appointment.

Victory Park Debuts Five New Murals

DALLAS (Aug. 9, 2017) – Visitors to Victory Park may notice that the district seems a little more colorful than they remember, thanks to a new series of vibrant, geometric murals by local artist Lesli Marshall. The selfie-worthy works are the latest installment in Victory Park’s initiative to bring a renewed sense of energy and individuality to the district through public art.

 

“Victory Park is going through an amazing transformation, and the color and life in these murals reflect the new vibe of the area,” said Marshall. “It’s always exciting to stumble upon art in unexpected areas. In a parking garage, which is usually boring and industrial, people will discover these giant murals and interact with them.”

From goldfish swimming amongst diamonds to a mythical phoenix bird soaring over mountains, each new mural brings personality and a sense of discovery to an unexpected place: inside the parking garage on Victory Park Lane.

 

For inspiration, Marshall and her team members, Sarah Reyes and Daniel Driensky, looked to five adjectives – radiant, victorious, fierce, strong, and brave – and conceptualized five corresponding murals, each with its own animal and color scheme, painted in bold, bright strokes. Joining the “radiant” goldfish and “brave” phoenix, are “victorious” lions, a “fierce” steer, and “strong” elephants.

Splashed throughout the garage, with one on each level, the intention of the murals is twofold: to bring art into the district and to serve as a creative wayfinding mechanism.

 

“We could just paint numbers on each level like everywhere else does, but the new Victory Park isn’t like everywhere else,” said Terry Montesi, CEO, Trademark Property Co.  “Art is a powerful medium that can transform a space visually and impact how people experience a space emotionally. It’s one of the most important ways that we are adding texture, character, and soul to the district and fostering a vibe that is completely unique to Victory.”

The murals follow the unveiling of Victory Park’s first public art work this spring: an eight-foot steel sculpture in the “V-sign” hand gesture by California-based artist Nathan Mabry. The district will continue to roll out additional public art in the coming months, including a large sculpture by Las Vegas artist Tim Bavington, set to be installed this fall near the W Dallas – Victory Hotel.

 

The added public art comes as Victory Park owner Estein USA and retail partner Trademark Property Co. continue theirredevelopment efforts to evolve the district into a more authentic, walkable and soulful urban neighborhood.

In addition to the new public art, Victory Park transformation efforts include a full remerchandising, 85,000 square feet of new retail space, and key district enhancements to streets, sidewalks, storefronts, parking, technology and public spaces to promote a more vibrant, user-friendly experience.

 

Redevelopment efforts are also resulting in a number of new tenants, adding to the more than 20 retailers and restaurants that currently call Victory Park home. A curated collection of seven new local food and beverage tenants will open in the next year, including concepts from Tristan Simon, HG Sply Co.’s Elias Pope, This & That Concepts, Brooke Humphries, and Mesero. Other openings in the coming months include Orangetheory Fitness, Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas – Victory Park, and The 23, a new 285-unit mixed-use apartment community by LMC. Additional parking and a state-of-the-art valet program, as well as lighting and technology upgrades, will also roll out in 2017.

About Victory Park

Victory Park is a 75-acre mixed-use development in downtown Dallas surrounding the American Airlines Center, home of the Dallas Mavericks and Dallas Stars. Victory Park features more than 220,000 square feet of retail, restaurant and entertainment space; 621,000 square feet of Class-A office space; the 252-room W Dallas – Victory Hotel; more than 3,300 residential units; and the Perot Museum of Nature & Science. Victory Station provides access to DART Light Rail and the Trinity Railway Express. The popular 3.5-mile jogging and bicycle path, The Katy Trail, is also directly accessible. Victory Park is a property of UST XVI Victory Park, a German real estate investment fund managed by affiliates of Estein USA based in Orlando, Florida.  UST XVI became an equity owner of Victory Park in 2005 and the sole owner of the majority of the Victory Park buildings in 2009.

Michael and Ron Heinlen: Photography Exhibit at JM Gallery

Join JM Gallery August 5, from 5 until 8 for our opening reception featuring photography from Michael and Ron Heinlen.

 

JM Gallery is pleased to present works by Ron and Michael Heinlen, father and son photographers who look for the extraordinary hidden within the seemingly ordinary. Ron’s camera is his constant companion, and he collects images from around the world. Many of his photographs capture everyday city scenes—a man eyeing produce in a Boston storefront or a pair of beggars in Beijing—that appear fleeting, but reveal a sense of the shared humanity we too often forget. Michael finds beauty in ordinary and decayed forms, like the graceful lines and shadows of telephone wires or the suggestive patterns of crumbling concrete and broken glass in an abandoned building. He photographs common objects that we may “see” but that remain unseen, re-visioning them into novel forms and exposing the grace that surrounds us. Whether by memorializing the routine or by shifting perspectives, both father and son focus on the commonplace and elevate their subjects.

30% of all sales from this show will be donated to Big Thought. For 30 years, Big Thought has collaborated with local partners to bring creative learning opportunities to youth in Dallas neighborhoods with the greatest need. Students in these high-need neighborhoods do not have equitable access to crucial out-of-school education, which widens the opportunity gap. Big Thought develops and facilitates after-school, in-school, summer, and community programs that stimulate the imagination, instill and strengthen crucial social and emotional learning skills, and impact academic achievement.

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.

Sci-Fi Summer Film Series

The USA Film Festival and the
Angelika Film Center Dallas
Present Sci-Fi Summer Film Series
DALLAS — The USA Film Festival and the Angelika Film Center Dallas will partner to present Sci-Fi Summer Film Series, a 4-film series in August featuring contemporary and classic science fiction films.
The series will take place at 7:00pm on Tuesdays in August at the Angelika Film Center, 5321 E. Mockingbird Lane,  Dallas, Texas.
Village of the Damned (1960) – Tuesday, August 8th, 7:00pm
Logan’s Run (1976) – Tuesday, August 15th, 7:00pm
Dark City (1998) – Tuesday, August 22nd, 7:00pm
Attack the Block (2011) – Tuesday, August 29th, 7:00pm
“For this fun, big-screen series, we picked some of our favorite films from the past five decades that rightly deserve classic status – several of which were overlooked at the time of their release (Attack the Block and Dark City),” said Ann Alexander, Managing Director for USA Film Festival.
VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED (1960) — After all the residents (human and animal) of the quaint English village of Midwich go mysteriously unconscious for 4 hours one day, all of the women of child-bearing age awake to find that they are pregnant.  When 12 otherworldly children are subsequently born – all on the same day – the fun really begins.  The wonderful George Sanders gets to play a sympathetic and heroic character for a change and he does it with terrific grace as the children’s chief advocate.  Faithfully adapted by German director Wolf Rilla from John Wyndham’s spooky novel (“The Midwich Cuckoos”) in gorgeous black and white, this eerie classic still has the power to chill — and the last scene will have you holding your breath!  Not rated.
LOGAN’S RUN (1976) — Welcome to the 23rd Century – an idyllic domed world of pleasure where everything is perfect.  Until you turn 30 years old, that is, when inhabitants are sent for “renewal” ascending heavenward on a carousel as friends and family applaud (where they are actually killed).  Logan 5 (Michael York) is a “sandman” in this fabulous futuristic world assigned to intercept “runners” who attempt to escape the city.  When Logan is double-crossed by the computer-mind that rules the city, he decides to take a runner himself and the beautiful Jessica 6 (Jenny Agutter) joins him.  The Dallas-filmed cult classic features super-cool shooting locations including the Dallas Apparel Mart and the Fort Worth Water Gardens.  The cast also includes Farrah Fawcett and Peter Ustinov.  Rated R.
DARK CITY (1998) — In a city that never sees a sunrise, who are the mysterious group of bald men who drug the city’s inhabitants and manipulate their memories – and what do they want?  Nothing is as it seems in Alex Proyas’ grimy neo-noir masterpiece.  Starring Rufus Sewell, Jennifer Connelly, Kiefer Sutherland, William Hurt, Richard O’Brien, Ian Richardson and Colin Friels.  Rated R.
ATTACK THE BLOCK (2011) — Alien invaders get more than they bargained for in this London-set kids-vs-aliens super-fun, old-school creature feature.  Overlooked at the time of its release, Joe Cornish’s feature debut is a rip-roaring good time that deserves modern classic status.  The cast of (then) unknown kids includes the film debut of John Boyega who stars as Finn in the new Star Wars films.  Also starring Nick Frost as the tower block’s resident drug dealer and Jodie Whittaker who, as announced this summer, will be the first woman to play The Doctor in the Doctor Who film series.  Rated R.
TICKETS are $11 each per screening and are on sale now at www.angelikafilmcenter.com
