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.”

All media may be submitted.

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.

The Dallas Museum of Art’s new mission statement

Dear DMA friends and supporters,

Having just celebrated my first anniversary at the Dallas Museum of Art, I am excited about the many successes that we have achieved together, and by how much we continue to learn about the ways to best serve the community. It continues to be a great honor for me to lead this institution and live in this remarkable city, and I want to thank you for your participation in and support of our many exhibitions and programs over the past year.

As we build on these successes and look forward, Museum leadership and staff are carefully examining how to continue the DMA’s achievements in cultivating connections with its existing audiences, and to make the DMA a welcoming place for our entire community. We are also reaffirming our commitment to making the DMA a 21st-century museum in every way.

As an initial step toward these goals, we have developed a renewed mission and vision for the Museum, which will serve as our guide as we create new initiatives and programs and look to the DMA’s future:

The Dallas Museum of Art is a space of wonder and discovery where art comes alive.

The DMA will:

  • Place art and our diverse communities at the center around which all activities radiate.
  • Pursue excellence in collecting and programming, present works of art across cultures and time, and be a driving force in contemporary art.
  • Strengthen our position as a prominent, innovative institution, expanding the meaning and possibilities of learning and creativity.

We are pleased to share this new mission with you, our visitors, supporters, and community. I hope that you find it compelling and will enjoy many visits to the DMA in the coming year as we embark on this new path. I also hope that by sharing in our excitement, you will continue your support of the Museum, and if you are not yet a DMA Member, that you will consider joining.


Agustín Arteaga
The Eugene McDermott Director

Peace. Beauty. Light.
Three aspects that Rebecca Zook consciously incorporates into her paintings. As a native Texan, she grew up with an appreciation of the unique beauty that Texas offers. Wandering the trails, playing in the creek near her childhood home and befriending every creature she encountered, Rebecca found a true love in nature. This connection is something that’s remained a part of her throughout her life and this love of the landscape and its inhabitants is expressed through each brushstroke.

Daeter and Froment: Poetic Densities opens Oct. 27 at the Geometric MADI

An exhibit featuring the painted wood reliefs of Elvira Daeter and Joel Froment opens with a reception on October 27, 2017 from and runs through January 21, 2018 at the the Museum of Geometric and MADI Art .

Elvira Daeter is a Dutch artist who has been painting in a constructivist, abstract, geometric style for many years.  She likes the MADI idea of eliminating the rectangular frame, which creates an horizon for creative imagination.  She says,  “MADI means to me power, cheerfulness, freedom, creativity, movement, abstraction, dimension and invention, concerning form, content, and light.  It is a challenging style.

French artist Joel Froment has been a MADI artist from the time Carmelo moved from Buenos Aires to Paris and created a MADI movement in France.  Much of his work is kinetic, as is one of the two pieces owned by the MADI in Dallas.  There are now more than twenty MADI artists living in France, although some of these were born in South America or Japan.  For many years Froment has been the President of MADI International.

This exhibit is guest curated by Mokha Laget and will feature an Arcadia Salon Discussion with the artists and curator on November 2, 2017.

A small exhibition of still lives by Houston artist, John Herrin, will be on view at PDNB Gallery.

The exhibition highlights how Herrin pursues the beauty of nature with great technical and visual acumen.

Opening Reception Nov. 18 for STALLMAN / MARS : ‘Iconic Patterns’

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, with an 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/

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.

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.

Stolen for 40 Years, Norman Rockwell Masterwork May Bring $1 Million at Heritage Auctions

American Art Auction offers fresh-to-market paintings, works on paper and sculptures Nov. 3 in Dallas

 

DALLAS, Texas (Oct. 13, 2017) – Recently returned to a family after it was stolen more than 40 years ago, Norman Rockwell’s endearing Lazybones (Boy Asleep With Hoe), also known as Taking a Break, is expected to sell for more than $1 million in Heritage Auctions’ Nov. 3 American Art Auction in Dallas. The 1919 Saturday Evening Post cover makes its auction debut, highlighting an exceptional array of Golden Age illustration.

Purchased for less than $100 in 1954 and stolen in June of 1976, Rockwell’s painting stands as one of the artist’s first Saturday Evening Post covers, produced in 1919 when he was only 25. Lazybones illustrates not simply the classic Rockwell subject of childhood, but the quintessential American prankster-adventurer, Huck Finn. With his straw hat and bandana, work shirt, and tattered pants with suspenders, Rockwell’s character comes straight out of the pages of Mark Twain’s celebrated novel. Not least, the painting has its own wild back-story, ripped from the headlines, as it was taken from Robert and Teresa Grant’s house in New Jersey during a well-planned burglary. With the help of special FBI agents, the painting was recovered and returned to the family in March.

“The provenance of this masterwork is as remarkable as the painting itself,” said Aviva Lehmann, Director of American Art at Heritage Auctions. “We are thrilled to bring this classic Rockwell to auction, and find its new home.”

Heritage is also pleased to present The Golden Age: Property from a Distinguished New York Collection.  Comprised of 43 works spanning the Golden Age of Illustration, the single-owner collection embodies an era of unprecedented excellence in magazine and book illustration. The artists of this period captured the nostalgia of simple, innocent times and everyday life through accessible narrative. As such, their content was ideally suited for the imaginative tales published in periodicals of the time, including the Saturday Evening Post, Cosmopolitan, Ladies Home Journal, and Life, among others.  A large portion of the collection is comprised of original illustrations that were reproduced as covers of these magazines.  Impeccably curated, it features works by the best storytellers of the Golden Age, including works by the iconic Joseph Christian Leyendecker (Est. $100,000-150,000) and Maxfield Parrish (Est $8.000-12.000).

Additional iconic works from masters of American Illustration Art includes Bump Mobile, The Saturday Evening Post cover, June 22, 1940, by Albert W. Hampson (est. $30,000-$50,000) and Amateur Nite—Cowboy Bill’s Ramblers, The Saturday Evening Post cover, January 11, 1936, by Monte Crews (est. $20,000-30,000).

The Nov. 3 auction will also feature a spectacular oil by George Henry Durrie titled Winter in the Country, A Cold Morning (est. $300,000-$500,000). Painted circa 1863, this masterwork romanticizes the seasonal pleasures of bucolic life with great composition and attention to detail, prompting one notable Durrie scholar to proclaim the work “one of his best contributions to native winter landscape painting in the nineteenth century.”

Offered for the first time in nearly 30 years, William Merritt Chase’s Untitled (Nude Resting in a Chair), circa 1888. Chase executed the pastel as a classroom demonstration while teaching at the Art Students League in New York. The swivel chair upon which the model sits can be seen in a photograph of Chase, standing in his famous Tenth Street Studio in New York that was reproduced in a 1947 article about the famed studio building in The Villager.

Interior (est. $80,000-$120,000) by Louis Ritman is emblematic of the artist’s unique brand of American Impressionism, painted while the artist lived and worked in Giverny, France.  Interior has descended in the same family for more than 100 years and was last seen publically in 1912 at the Cincinnati Museum’s “19th Annual Exhibition of American Art.

Other highlights of the auction include:

This years juror is Sara-Jayne Parsons. As the Director of the Art Galleries at TCU in Fort Worth, British curator Sara-Jayne Parsons drives the international vision of Fort Worth Contemporary Arts and promotes professional development of students and local artists through programming in Moudy Gallery. Before moving to Fort Worth in 2014 Parsons was the Exhibitions Curator at the Bluecoat in Liverpool, UK, where for eight years she produced a diverse, contemporary exhibition programme.

She has also published critical writing in various contemporary art magazines including Source, Art Monthly Australia and ArtLies, and has published essays in numerous exhibition catalogues.


We Made Cool – Ari Brielle
Downstairs / Project Space

We Made Cool is a body of work by Ari Brielle that examines notions of black femininity, strength and softness. Candy painted colors and natural motifs decorate portraits that explore black culture, consumption and experience. Ari Brielle is an emerging visual artist based in Dallas, Texas. She completed her BA at the University of North Texas in 2016 where she cultivated her studio practice and studied Interdisciplinary Art and Design. Brielle has exhibited in Texas and New York, and was recently nominated as one of Dallas’ Rising Stars by Liliana Bloch Gallery.


A Call From The Center of Things 
– Bárbara Cartier
Upstairs / Project Space

Bárbara Cartier energetically explores the tricky territory between painting and sculpture using a variety of materials and methods to create sculptural forms reminiscent of organic objects such as eggs and river rocks. Her use of vibrant colors and silky smooth surfaces suggest a “new car” seduction; polyurethane and fiberglass forms become outsized shining gems, transformed by hand and machine resulting in an ornate illusion of weight and volume. Teamed with collages, these totemic forms challenge decoration in a playful manner to create a kaleidoscopic installation intent on alchemy.

Born in Argentina, Bárbara Cartier now lives and works in Panama. Featuring new sculpture and collages, A Call From The Center of Things will be her first solo exhibition in the United States. This exhibition is sponsored by the Art Galleries at TCU.


2017 Member’s Exhibition

Upstairs / Main Gallery

Welcoming the addition of its newest members, this group of emerging Texas artists will be showcasing a range of media investigating a variety of content and formal concerns. Now on exhibition until November 5th.
