Umbrella Gallery presents B-sides: New Works by The Color Condition

Umbrella B-sides

B-sides: New Works by The Color Condition
Umbrella Gallery
2803 Taylor Street
Through March 11, 2017

The Color Condition, otherwise known as the Dallas-based duo Sunny Sliger and Marianne Newsom with special contributions from Vince Young, invite us to experience the common and truly extraordinary world around us with their seriously playful fits of imagination.

B-sides is an exhibition of The Color Condition’s wildly beautiful sculptural installations that will illuminate moments otherwise hidden – negative space, sculptural pauses and the life of the inanimate mark. Color, texture, and movement inspire these works in a symbiotic collision of intuition and visualization, a pattern language of delight. The installation seeks not only to transform Umbrella Gallery, but to allow the space – its natural elements and people – to transform the art, letting go of control and bringing it to life.


–from the Deep Ellum Texas Newsletter – subscribe at deepellumtexas.com

About Umbrella Gallery:
Umbrella is an art gallery that exists within the cultural center of Life in Deep Ellum, an organization built on the idea that vibrant community exists where individuality is celebrated, and all are welcome. It is a space for exploration, a place to stretch and to grow for both established and emerging artists. Due to its non-commercial status, Umbrella opens the door for artists to try something new, to push their artistic limits, and to exhibit this experimental spirit freely. Its unique functionality, size, and shape offer an opportunity to produce bodies of work that both stand out from and harmonize with the gallery space itself.

Contextual Assembly opening Feb. 23 at Kettle Art


Kettle Art proudly presents ‘Contextual Assembly’ a group exhibit featuring new works by Corey Godfrey, Hilda Lafleur, Roberta Masciarelli, and Amy Seymour.

From Corey’s soft, yarn focus on stones, to Hilda’s psychedelic imagery, to Roberta’s recycled constructions, to Amy’s imaginative world of clay, these four artists are united in whimsical, dream-like realities. This exhibit opens on Thursday, February 23, 2017, from 7:00-10:00pm, and runs through Saturday, March 18.

Kettle Art Gallery Deep in the Art of Ellum
2650-B Main Street  Dallas, TX 75226 www.kettleart.com


Corey Godfrey is a Texas-based artist whose past works have focused primarily on women as subject matter, utilizing yarn as her medium, a material traditionally associated with them. In her current series, Corey is inspired by stones found in nature that exemplify beauty, strength, and a profound sense of femininity. Corey holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from North Texas State University.

Roberta Masciarelli  is a Brazilian-born visual artist based in Dallas for the past eighteen years. Her art consists of sculptures, or constructions, created from found objects and materials, such as metal hardware. Having been a full-time artist for approximately ten years, Roberta has participated in art events within the US including Dallas, Washington DC, Santa Fe, Sedona, and New York. Internationally, she has exhibited in collective exhibits in England, Holland, Denmark, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, South Africa, New Zealand, Bosnia, Japan, Italy, and India. She earned a Bachelor of Architecture from Mackenzie University, Sao Paulo, Brazil.

HIlda Lafleur is a self-taught, Texas-born-and-bred artist. Hilda’s unique eye for color produces upbeat paintings inspired by frequent trips throughout Europe, further influenced by a life spent in Dallas during the turbulent sixties, seventies, and beyond. Her works are created on hand made canvas and painted with a unique concoction of acrylic paint and secret ingredients.

Amy Seymour is a Dallas native who has been creating art, sculpture, and photography for approximately twenty years. Amy’s work depicts a playful and mischievous vision from a dreamy realm within her subconscious view of the world around us.

CADD Fund Announces Finalists! Join us Sunday, March 5


Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas Present

CADD FUNd 2017

Sunday, March 5th, 5:00 – 7:30 pm

3015 Gulden Lane

Dallas, Texas 75212

Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas will again celebrate creativity and community with a Sunday Soup Supper on March 5th at 3015 at Trinity Groves. CADD FUNd 2017 will be a fun, fast-paced evening of sharing innovative ideas about potential artistic projects. CADD FUNd 2017 will make possible a high-impact idea that needs the support of the DFW arts community.

The idea for the annual CADD FUNd was inspired by similar events throughout the United States such as Feast in Brooklyn, Incubate in Chicago and Spread in Santa Fe. Over the past several years, numerous organizations have taken the basic premise of a Sunday soup dinner – collect creative proposals, invite the public to pay, eat, and listen, and then democratically vote for a winner – and adapted it to their own local purposes.

This year’s CADD FUNd finalists were selected by three esteemed 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 six finalists are: Justin Archer/UNT, Jessie Barnes/UNT, Spencer Evans/UTA, Dannie Liebergot/UNT, Juan Negroni/SMU, and Diego Romo/UNT.

During the event on March 5th, the finalists will present short proposals for original and yet-to-be-realized new projects. Members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask questions and then the audience participants will vote for their favorite project. After a short recess to tally the votes, the winner of CADD FUNd 2017 will be announced!

The CADD FUNd is $2500 – $7500 + and beyond. Funds are raised by ticket sales and will go to the winner chosen by the audience. Tickets are $40 per person and are on sale now. Tickets will not be available at the door. In an effort to make CADD FUNd 2017 as accessible as possible for the students and artists, $10 of each ticket sold will be applied to jurors’ fees and administrative costs in lieu of charging application fees.

The 2015 CADD FUNd was awarded to Rachel Rushing for her project- Sunset Art Studios: An Oak Cliff artist run studio and exhibition space. Named for the former Sunset Streetcar Line, Sunset Art Studios is a culturally invested art space. A group of local artists develop their work while providing the surrounding community opportunities to directly engage in the process of art. Ms. Rushing will give a short presentation at the event about her project, Sunset Art Studios.


While CADD FUNd is about raising much-needed cash, we hope that it will also be a forum to discuss the many other needs and resources that help make projects happen.

IDENTITY Artist Residency Program in Oak Cliff – deadline Feb. 15

identity residency

Artist Residency Program: Proposals due February 15, 2017

Preservation of one’s own culture does not require contempt or disrespect for other cultures.

 -Cesar Chavez

Sunset Art Studios and the Oak Cliff Cultural Center are now accepting proposals for Identity: I am one, I am many, a collaborative residency and exhibition program.

Sunset Art Studios, from artists Rachel Rushing and Emily Riggert, is a social practice studio in Elmwood run with the core principle of connecting people with the arts in an approachable way. This focus emphasizes the value of multiple viewpoints from diverse groups of individuals. The artistic process opens up the mind to creative problem solving, and seeing complex issues in fresh ways.

In our current political climate this mentality is vital to the survival of a civil and democratic society where all people are created equal and valued equally. The arts are manifestations of these values.

Inspired by the words of Cesar Chavez, Identity: I am one, I am many is a group exhibition exploring the ways we define ourselves and the world around us. Artists in Residence at Sunset Art Studios, and the SAS coordinating artists look at identity through the lens of culture, politics, gender, community, and more to forward discussions vital to our society.

Texas is a multicultural space home to veterans, students, immigrants, entrepreneurs, artists, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and friends. Through this program artists are encouraged to apply whose work considers these complex identities.

Two artists will be selected for 4-week residencies at Sunset Art Studios during the months of March and April 2016. Residents will be provided with

  • Shared studio space

  • Limited studio furniture

  • Large exhibition wall

  • Connections with local community members, activists, and galleries.

  • Free WIFI

Work produced during each residency will be included in the May 2016 I am one, I am many exhibition at the Oak Cliff Cultural Center along with the work of the Sunset Art Studios coordinating artists.



Artists must be 21+ to participate in this program, and must be residents within Dallas city limits. Artists of color, LGBT+, and women applicants are encouraged to apply. Special consideration will be given to those whose proposal incorporate community activation, participatory making or viewing experiences, and/or social engagement with the local neighborhood.

Proposals will only be accepted online HERE

TVAA’s Still Life Exhibit call for entries

March 1 – 31, 2017

TVAA Downtown Gallery http://tvaa.org

Plaza of the Americas – Suite G-207, 700 N Pearl PO Box 347, Dallas, Texas 75201



Although the French refer to still life as “nature morte” meaning “dead life,” the art form generally means a collection of still objects that had been alive, such as fruit, cut flowers or dead animals, thus “still life.” Over the centuries this genre has evolved to include most any collection of inanimate objects, whether or not portrayed realistically.  It is common for artists to learn still life drawing or painting early on in their studies. So whether it is an artwork from your past or a new project, bring out your still life paintings or drawings and celebrate this art form that has endured throughout history.

Please submit up to three entries (jpgs at 72 dpi and no longer than 1800 pixels on longest side) to Curator Terri Nelson by February 20th at tvaagallery.stilllife@gmail.com

Dallas Edition: Call for Nasty Women Exhibition


This is the Dallas sister of the Nasty Women exhibition launched in New York. It is one of many national exhibitions organized around the demonstration of solidarity among female artists and allies who identify with being a Nasty Woman in the face of threats to roll back women’s rights, individual rights, abortion rights, immigration rights, racial and environmental justice. It also serves as a fundraiser to support organizations defending these rights.

This call is open to Nasty Women Artists of all ages, races, religions, sexual orientations, gender or non-gender identifications, economic backgrounds, immigrants and non-immigrants.

This exhibition will take place on March 3rd, the anniversary of the 1913 Women’s Suffrage Parade on Washington. We hope to honor the struggle of our fore-mothers, while also acknowledging their shortcomings. It is no secret that historically feminism has been plagued by a general white-washing of equality with only the causes of cisgendered, straight, able bodied, white women being worth fighting for. This has been a mistake in the struggle for equality. The Dallas Nasty Women Exhibition encourages explorations of women’s history and women’s rights through all of the intersectional lenses those who identify as women must push through.

100% of proceeds from the sale of artworks will go to Dallas Area Rape Crisis Center. Dallas Area Rape Crisis Center is committed to the prevention of sexual violence in North Texas and compassionately serving those impacted by it. www.dallasrapecrisis.org

March 3, 7 – 9 pm reception and sale

March 4, gallery open 10 am – 2 pm cash/card and carry

Andrew Kochie: 90 Degrees reception Feb. 11 at ArtSpace

Now showing at ArtSpace at Metropolitan Press, 90 Degrees by Andrew Kochie.

Meet the artist at the upcoming reception on Saturday, February 11, 2017 from 4:30pm to 7:30pm.

The paintings…are a synthetic blend between abstract and Trompe-l’œil illusion. Ranging between abstract minimalism to geometric abstraction, each piece reflects a balance of classical geometry creating fiery optical effects on handmade panels.

Jo Moncrief’s Abstract Acrylic Workshop 2017




The focus of this workshop will be on ways to create abstract acrylic paintings that are luminous, with great contrast and interest.

The emphasis will be for each student to understand the steps in creating abstract art & complete as many paintings as possible during the workshop. Jo Moncrief will explain how she uses composition, color, value, the principles & elements of design, contrast and the rule of thirds while working through a painting to finality.
She will demonstrate the advantages of a limited palette, the Munsell Color Wheel vs. the traditional color wheel and how grays enhance any painting.  She will demonstrate how to use color as a value and the surprising benefits of learning how to read paint labels. You will also be taught the bias of colors and how they affect your palette and the importance  of a focal point.
Jo Moncrief is a local Dallas artist who exhibits her artwork in national and local juried art shows, festivals and exhibitions.

GisaElwazirProtecting the Land

February 9 – March 4, 2017
Opening Reception:  Saturday, February 11, 5-8 pm
Haley-Henman Gallery at Gallery 422422 Singleton Boulevard, Dallas, Texas 75212 

Gisa Elwazir’s fourth solo exhibition at Haley-Henman

DALLAS, Texas (January 10, 2017)–Haley-Henman proudly announces Gisa Elwazir’s solo exhibition of new paintings titled Diptych:  A Divided Land (Scape).  The exhibition opens on Thursday, February 9th and continues until March 4th. An opening reception with the artist is Saturday, February 11th from 5-8 pm.

Gisa Elwazir is at her most complex expression of her leitmotif, organic abstraction.  This is her fourth solo exhibition of new paintings in this collection.   Haley-Henman is honored to be the premier venue of her new works that continually receive awards in juried competitions.

At the foundation of all these works is her medium of decalcomania, whereby she makes a texture of paint applied to the paper, like putting on a decal.  It is from this texture that the artist begins her creative process.  Decalcomania begins the rich layering of saturated colors, stippled transparencies of color, and the unfolding of spaces and forms.

For this exhibition, the viewer encounters the majority of works as diptychs in which the artist intentionally keeps a space between two continguous panels.  When a viewer approaches Gisa Elwazir’s paintings, there is an overall sense that something is happening.  The visual sense is assaulted with color interwoven by dynamic patterns of action.  These paintings are not static abstractions, nor are they static land (scapes).  As the viewer gets closer to the work, there is an increased visual experience of seeing stunning detail, with occasional plays of figurative and landscape references where the inner worlds of imagination come to life, and where the viewer can give their own meaning to the artist’s suggestions.

Meadows Lecture Series: Reflecting on Ribera: Art and Culture in Spain and Spanish Naples, 1600-1700


Reflecting on Ribera:
Art and Culture in Spain and Spanish Naples, 1600-1700
Four Fridays, February 3 – March 3, 10:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Adam Jasienski, assistant professor of art history, SMU

This lecture series investigates the world and work of Spanish-born artist Jusepe de Ribera (1591-1652), the subject of the forthcoming exhibition  Between Heaven and Hell: The Drawings of Jusepe de Ribera

meadowslectureseries2(opening March 12). A careful analysis of specific artworks by Ribera and his contemporaries will situate the artist within the broader context of the global Iberian empire, in which his chosen hometown of Naples played an integral role. Some of the themes examined will include Ribera’s confrontation with the legacies of Caravaggio and Domenichino, his penchant for violent scenes of martyrdom and suffering, the appeal of his stark realism, and his creation of images that were both effective religious objects and cutting-edge contemporary artworks. Coffee and pastries served in the Founders Room before each lecture at 10 a.m.


Advance registration required. $50 for the 4-part series; free for Museum members, SMU staff, faculty and students. To register, please call 214.768.8587.

Bob and Jean Smith Auditorium

This program is made possible by gifts from The Fannie and Stephen Kahn Charitable Foundation and The Eugene McDermott Foundation.

JM Gallery Presents: An Artist Talk with Johannes Boekhoudt Feb. 11

BoekhoudttalkJM Gallery opens its third year with Black & White, an exhibition of drawings by Johannes Boekhoudt.

Artist Talk Feb. 11, 2017 1:30 pm
JM Gallery, 1722 Routh Street
Suite 106, Dallas, Tx 75201

Johannes is an internationally acclaimed artist whose works have shown in galleries and museums in Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe, and the United States. He is best known for large, expressionistic paintings that reveal social injustice and lay bare the suffering and loss caused by hatred, intolerance, and arrogance.

The works in this show explore similar themes, but on a different scale. Here, Johannes offers drawings, primarily in black and white, that are smaller and more personal—but no less expressive and impassioned—and his presence is felt in each forceful stroke. We sense not only the power of their messages, but also the intensity of the artistic and spiritual force that created them. In this way, Johannes exploits the power of drawing as a medium. As he explains: “The pencil gives way to a powerful freedom of expression, which expresses the traces of each movement of the hand. With longing, I dream that this sense of freedom is able to reach those who feel trapped and anxious in a world without freedom.” That dream is realized through the purity and immediacy of the black and white drawings that evoke both the struggles and hopes of life in an often troubled age.

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.

Cindy J. Holmes: THUS SPAKE DERRIDA reception March 11 at Haley-Henman


Image: Cindy J. Holmes Walking Man Acrylic on canvas, 36 x 36 inches


March 9 – April 1, 2017
Opening reception:  Saturday, March 11, 5-8 pm
Haley-Henman Gallery at Gallery 422
422 Singleton Boulevard
Dallas, Texas 75212

a solo exhibition of new paintings

DALLAS, Texas (February 4, 2017)– Haley-Henman proudly presents Cindy J. Holmes’ solo exhibition of new paintings titled Thus Spake Derrida.  This is her third solo exhibition at Haley-Henman, which focuses on the human figure. The opening reception on Saturday, March 11 from 5-8 pm is free and open to the public.  The exhibition is from March 9 through April 1, 2017.

For this exhibition, Holmes has pushed the boundaries toward abstraction. Indeed, these paintings reference the Bay Area Figurative Movement that has generated itself as a distinct style since the 1950s, and which continues today in Holmes’s work.  But her existential position is different.  Instead of reintegrating elements of realism into painting, such as what the Bay Area artist did when they went beyond Abstract Expressionism, Holmes starts with realism and then takes it apart.


For Holmes, the figure is not stepping into an abstraction.  Her process breaks the rules of figurative artwork, and in this deconstructed way, removes the binary oppositions of beauty/ugly, whole/parts, man/woman.
Holmes allusion to Nietzsche in the title of her exhibition resonates with her paintings as “…authentic art, which allows freedom above things.  We need all exuberant, floating, dancing, mocking, childish, and blissful art lest we loose our freedom above things our ideal demands of us…” (Nietzsche 1882, The Gay Science: With a Prelude in Rhymes and an Appendix of Songs (1974), translated with a commentary, Walter Kaufman, N.Y., Vintage Books, p. 164).
