Alternative Process Photography Artist Talk June 17 at JM Gallery

jmgalleryphotographers

Join JM Gallery tomorrow Saturday, June 17, at 1:30 for an artist talk with photographers Peter Blackburn, Amy Holmes George, Frank Lopez, Kathy Lovas, and Susan Sponsler-Carstarphen.

JM Gallery is excited to work with photographer and teacher Frank Lopez in presenting an exhibition of works by local photographers who explore the limits of technology and chemistry through experimental processes that challenge our notions of how photographs are made. These artists use a variety of processes—some old, some new, and some in combination—to create images that cannot be reproduced using standard methods. Frank, for example, scratches, tears, and bleaches exposed Polaroid film and then scans and retouches the images to create abstract works that illustrate the process itself. Susan Sponsler-Carstarphen offers cyanotype images on fabric that recall ancient “wanted” posters, but present portraits of men and women standing up for victims of racial profiling and police brutality. Amy Holmes George’s ziatype prints are still lifes composed of babies, duckies, ring toys, and children’s clothing that appear at once concrete and dreamlike; familiar, yet strangely haunting. Kathy Lovas presents Police Blotter, an artist’s book in which Polaroid pinhole photographs of newspaper crime reports, school photos, and encyclopedia texts are layered to pose the questions: “Who will become a criminal?” and “Who will become a victim?” And Peter Blackburn works with gum bichromate printing, a 19th-century technique that produces rich, painterly images, to capture the energy of dance.
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.

Woodturning Art Exhibit in June at The Artists Showplace Gallery: Reception June 17

woodturnersjune

The Artists Showplace Gallery is pleased to present the stunning work of nationally recognized woodturners Kevin Bassett and Gary Sanders from Saturday, June 3, to Friday, June 30. A reception to meet the artists will be held on Saturday, June 17, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served.

Kevin Bassett’s interest in the art of woodturning evolved from his extensive study of plant pathology in his home state of Colorado, followed by a distinguished 40-plus-year career as a certified arborist. He describes his work as a collaboration with nature. “Even though I choose the shape, form and utility of a piece of a tree, ultimately the tree has its own voice. I am only a conduit through which the tree is able to speak.”

Gary Sanders, a retired firefighter from Greenville, Texas, began woodturning professionally in 1993. His artwork has been accepted into national juried woodturning exhibitions, and he has work in private collections and museums. Gary teaches locally and has conducted woodturning demonstrations across the country and in Australia. He is known for his finishing techniques and his eye for detail.

On Creativity…
On June 29th from 6:30 – 8pm CAC will be hosting its fifthunseenamerica show featuring the work of eight very talented 3rd 4th and 5th graders from nearby Bayles Elementary and we hope you will join us to view their work and welcome them to CAC! A culminating exhibit opened at the students’ school last month, and after it shows at CAC will travel throughout the community to such venues as galleries, libraries and businesses impacting hundreds of people who view the exhibition.
Unseenamerica is an 8-week curriculum-based program, taught by a professional photographer, teaches digital photography at nearby Bayles Elementary, which is CAC’s namesake school.  Bayles began as a one-room school house in 1981 near what is now Buckner International.  CAC was built during the WPA in 1935 and Bayles operated here until the mid-50s. The current DISD Bayles Elementary School opened in 1956 about a mile from CAC where it is currently. Significantly, Bayles is the oldest school operating under the same name in Dallas County.
Modeled on a program that originated in New York under Bread and
 Roses, the cultural arm of SEIU Local 1199, the largest labor union in the country, unseenamericawas originally designed to serve low-wage workers, day labors, homeless citizens and others often ignored in our society. When CAC brought the program to Dallas in 2008 we were the first to adapt the program for children.
 
Unseenamerica is far from a fun enrichment program for disadvantaged kids. It is designed to instill a stronger sense of self and community through artistic practice. Unseenamerica does not simply teach photography skills, but also creates community, enables the practice of democracy and promotes social justice.

Sacred: New Works By Justin Clumpner – Reception June 16 at Kettle Art

Justin_Clumpner_Sacred

Kettle Art Presents: “Sacred: New Works By Justin Clumpner” 

Opening Reception: Friday, June 16, 5-8pm

Kettle Art proudly presents “Sacred: New Works By Justin Clumpner” featuring current illustrations and paintings by the artist, as well as an exclusive, immersive installation, in the artist’s first solo exhibition at the gallery.

Clumpner’s work continues to explore the implications of America as a “Christian nation.” Working primarily in paint and collage, he depicts symbolic narratives built around portraiture. Using newspaper and advertisements as source material, Clumpner looks to our contemporary existence to find the maddening, the ironic, and the absurd. He uses this imagery to create secular icons of morality inspired by the stained glass windows and illuminated manuscripts that were ever-present in his upbringing. Using these same symbolic elements mixed with contemporary imagery, he creates something both new and familiar.

As Clumpner explains:

We have declared ourselves a Christian nation, but problematically the generosity, sacrifice, and love of our Christian saints do not align with the needs of contemporary America. We will need new saints. Saints of greed and division. Saints that tear apart man and nature, looking for every lucrative resource, and then building walls to protect that wealth. With that in mind, I have created this monument.

MFA Exhibitions open June 3 at CentralTrak: Jessie Bowers and Chun Yi (Ronald) Wu

Centraltrak2016logo

CentralTrak hosts reception for two final MFA exhibitions

This Saturday, June 3rd from 8-10pm

Please join us at CentralTrak this Saturday, June 3rd from 8-10pm for a reception celebrating Jessie Bowers and Chun Yi (Ronald) Wu, two recent MFA graduates.

Jessie Bowers: Dis-Location

Dis-Location is a meta-gallery created by the artist by intertwining two unique gallery spaces into one show. A virtual gallery was digitally fabricated for the viewer to experience the show in their mind, while the physical gallery space was incorporated as a way to experience the other part in person.

 

Chun Yi (Ronald) Wu: Zodiac of Virtual and Real

This show features 12 Zodiac constellation Pepakura sculptures and wall reliefs representing each sign of the Zodiac. The characters are a combination of mythology, fantasy, and the oral storytelling tradition. Throughout his MFA, Wu used 3D modeling programs to create conceptual sculptures with the Digital Fabrication process in mind.

Wu will have his main installation in the main lobby of the Edith O’Donnell Arts and Technology building on campus and a part in CentralTrak’s gallery.

Jessie Bowers combines a physical show with a virtual gallery at CentralTrak

Fine European Art Auction Exceeds 1.3 Million at Heritage Auctions

Heritageeuropeanauction

May 24 sale sees Henrietta Rae’s Psyche surpass $300,000

DALLAS (May 26, 2017) – Regarded by many as the most significant and ambitious work of the Victorian artist’s career, Henrietta Rae’s Psyche before the throne of Venus sold for $324,500, the second-highest price ever for the artist at auction, to lead Heritage Auction’s $1.3+ million Fine European Art auction.

Psyche features a total of 14 full-length figures, and is a testament to Rae’s celebrity as the finest woman painter of the female nude in pre-modern Britain. The work subsequently was owned by “celebrity collectors” William Randolph Hearst and Amon G. Carter.

“There is no doubt that Henrietta Rae set out to create a major artistic statement when she painted Psyche before the throne of Venus,” notes Dr. Marianne Berardi, Senior European Painting Expert at Heritage. “This mythological composition not only took her over two years to complete, but required that she build a new painting studio in order to accommodate its ambitious dimensions. It’s wonderful that Rae, who had to contend with so much chauvinism in the male-dominated art world of her time, chose to paint this myth that was populated entirely by women.”

French artists filled out the remaining top spots in the auction, with French Post-Impressionist Henri Baptiste Lebasque’s Sur les bords de la Marne, 1901 large tour de force selling for $125,000 and Fauvist Maurice de Vlaminck’s Rue de village, circa 1920-22 and Ferme gaveling for $65,625 and $57,500, respectively.

French academic painter Guillaume-Charles Brun’s work The young rag seller, 1870 sold for $52,500, while noted French cityscape painter Maurice Utrillo’s Rue Lepic à Montmartre sold for $48,750.

Belgian artist Anto Carte’s The Annunciation, 1923 sold for $47,500. A large painting of the The Virgin Mary adoring the Christ Child, circa 1645 by rare Baroque painter Matteo Loves brought $32,500.

Additional highlights include, but are not limited to:

Neige, circa 1890 by Jean-Baptiste-Armand Guillaumin: Realized $45,000

Paysage d’automne aux environs de Saint-Tropez, 1922 by Henri Charles Manguin: Realized $42,500

Divinitié, 1967 by Vu Cao Dam: Realized $37,500

Art of the West Debuts in June 10-12 Fine and Decorative Arts Auction

DixonHeritage

Highlights from premier western artists include Maynard Dixon, Gene Kloss, Harry Jackson and Phillip Goodwin

 

DALLAS, Texas (May 24, 2017) – Heritage Auctions is pleased to debut Art of the West, which will be included in theJune 10 Fine and Decorative Arts including Estate auction and showcases over 100 paintings by historical and contemporary Western Artists. June’s Art of the West division will feature entry level price points as well as strong quality works from artists such as Maynard Dixon, Gene Kloss, Harry Jackson and Phillip Goodwin.

 

“As the western market continues to thrive and market values continue to increase, I wanted to make sure that Western Art remains accessible to collectors at various levels,” explained Director of Western Art Alissa Ford. “This mid-season sale also allows consignors to participate in an earlier auction if waiting for the fall is not an option.”

 

Dixon moved in 1940 to Tucson, Arizona, where he began to explore the Hispanic and Native American life of the region.Portrait of a Native American, 1940 (est. $3,000-5,000) is most likely the product of the artist spotting a compelling subject on one of his explorations and creating a highly finished work accentuating the striking features of the young woman.

GoodwinHeritage

Goodwin’s The Hunter (est. $2,000-3,000) is an appealing study that depicts his love for hunting, fishing, cowboy scenes and scenes featuring firearms.

 

Any collection of western memorabilia isn’t complete without a work by the renowned novelist and cowboy artist Will James. His dynamic sketch To the Boy Scouts, Hoping you Never Lose a Stirrup, study, 1926 (est. $3,000-5,000) illustrates James’ talent for capturing the energetic movement and iconic imagery of the life of the cowboy.

 

Several outstanding works represent the female artists of the West, including Ila McAfee’s Fawn (est. $2,000-3,000), which captures her lifelong love for modeling animals, and Gene Kloss’ etchingsStaurolite Ledge Above Taos, 1973 (est. $1,000-1,500) and Age-old Rhythm, 1973 (est. $800-1,200) which demonstrates Kloss’ nationally acclaimed and meticulous etching methods depicting the life and landscape of the Southwest. Louisa McElwain’s Silver Rain (est. $4,000-6,000) also displays her love for the Southern landscape through the use of a bold palette and strong surface aesthetics created by use of the palette knife.

 

Among the highlights of the sale, which include a strong representation of western and wildlife sculpture, is Harry Jackson’s Pony Express III (est. $2,000-3,000).

 

Noted contemporary western artists in the June auction include Ray Swanson, Joe Velazquez and Tim Solliday. Swanson’s Navajo Brothers, 1975 (est. $6,000-8,000), Velazquez’s Approach of a New Season (est. $3,000-5,000) and Solliday’s Desert Landscape (est. $4,000-6,000) are all highly refined works that capture the beauty of the great American West.

 

Heritage Auctions continues to grow the market for Art of the West, and is looking continually for original pieces through consignment. Contact Alissa Ford at 214-409-1926 or alissaf@ha.com if you are interested in consigning your Art of the West.

Studio Portrait Lighting Intensive

A Weekend Workshop: June 17 & 18

 studioportraitlighting
This weekend intensive is a thorough, hands-on exploration of the fundamentals of portrait lighting in the studio. From the simplest of lighting set-ups to the most complex configuration, the starting point of any lighting formula is the key light. Knowing how and where to place the primary light source is crucial. This is where we will begin in Studio Portrait Lighting Intensive.

On day one you will learn how to competently use a single light source and you’ll begin to see first-hand just how creatively flexible single source lighting can be. On day two we’ll add more lights, experiment with reflectors, fill light, feathering, edge lighting and how to interact with a subject. You’ll get to put all of your new knowledge to work with real models.

Kettle Art Presents “Summer Session: Creative Works By DFW’s Teaching Artists” Reception June 8

Summer Session 4x6

Kettle Art proudly presents “Summer Session: Creative Works By DFW’s Teaching Artists”

As William Butler Yeats said, “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”  Teaching artists balance between educating and producing, constantly stoking their own creative flames while igniting a passion for art in their students.  Concurrently working to enrich the lives of children, while maintaining professional practices, they both strengthen the artistic community and enhance their understanding of their individual crafts.  This exhibition highlights the work of some of the finest artist educators working in primary and secondary schools in Dallas-Fort Worth.  Please join us in celebrating their work and dedication to our community.

Participating artists include:

Chris Bingham
Devyn Gaudet
Dani Kent
Loughridge C. Murrell III
Katrina Rasmussen

Opening reception June 8 at Kettle Art.

On view through July 8

Hidden Nature Sopheap Pich at Crow Collection of Asian Art, opens Saturday, June 24, 2017

The Crow Collection of Asian Art is pleased to announce the presentation of a solo exhibition of the work of Sopheap Pich, recognized today as Cambodia’s most internationally prominent contemporary artist. This exhibition will feature his large-scale sculpture, Rang Phnom Flower (2015), his most ambitious single-form sculpture to date. Twenty-five feet in length, its complex construction is composed of hundreds of strands of rattan and bamboo. The sculpture is that of the cannonball tree (“rang phnom” in Khmer), which in Southeast Asia is associated with the sal tree under which the Buddha was born. This tree is often planted near Buddhist temples; many can be found around the temples near Pich’s studio on the outskirts of Phnom Penh. In fact, the plant originated in the Americas and was introduced by Europeans to Sri Lanka, where it was soon revered for its resemblance to the sal tree, which does not grow in tropical climates. It was then brought to Southeast Asia by Sri Lankans, who were responsible for the revitalization of Buddhism in that region. Pich’s tree is created at enormous over-sized scale, which conveys the power of nature, but also brings forward the plant’s abstract qualities by using precise grid–like structure and geometric shapes, in order to consider concepts of scale, the natural and the industrial, and the large that can be found within the small.

Hidden Nature: Sopheap Pich will be on view from June 24, 2017-January 7, 2018 in the Mezzanine.

About the Artist:

Sopheap Pich (b. 1971) is recognized today as Cambodia’s most internationally prominent contemporary artist.  Born in Battambang, Cambodia, he moved with his family to the United States in 1984, and received his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1999.  In 2002, he returned to Phnom Penh, Cambodia, where he continues to be based.  Pich is known for working with local materials such as bamboo, rattan, burlap from rice bags, beeswax and earth pigments gathered from around Cambodia and making sculptures that are inspired by bodily organs, vegetal forms, and abstract geometric structures.  His childhood experiences during the genocidal conditions of late 1970s Cambodia has had a lasting impact on his work, informing its themes of time, memory and the body.

His work has been featured in numerous international museum exhibitions and biennials throughout the world, notably Documenta 2012, and a 2013 solo exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art (Cambodian Rattan: The Sculptures of Sopheap Pich), which was the museum’s first solo show given to a contemporary Southeast Asian artist.  Major museum collections of his work include The Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (New York), Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris), M+ Museum for Visual Culture (Hong Kong), Singapore Art Museum, Queensland Art Gallery, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Albright-Knox Art Gallery (Buffalo), and Cleveland Museum of Art.  Most recently, he has been selected to present in the main exhibition at this year’s 57th International Venice Biennale (La Biennale di Venezia), Viva Arte Viva, curated by Christine Macel.

State: Texas
Fee: $0.00
Entry Deadline: 6/1/17

The Public Art Program of the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs requests the submission of qualifications from artists for consideration to design, fabricate and install a free-standing, outdoor public artwork that will be a tribute to the life and work of Dallas artist Arthello Beck, Jr.

Arthello Beck, Jr., Dallas African-American artist, was born in Dallas on July 17, 1941. He was the first African American to own and operate an art gallery in Dallas. Arthello believed his art was a means of communication, a vital therapeutic form of expression for the young and old. His paintings reflected positive images of African-American people and culture; congregations at river baptisms, ladies at a beauty shop, children learning, sports scenes and dads reading to their babies are just some of the everyday scenes Beck captured on canvas.

Artwork should create a space or environment that invites community interaction with the artwork and incorporates themes central to Arthello Beck’s work.  Themes include references to positive African American experiences appropriate for children and adults in the surrounding neighborhoods. The Project Budget is $81,488.
