‘Existentialism’ is a solo exhibit featuring the original works of Jonathan Ramirez. Please join us for an opening reception on Saturday, April 16 from 6:00-10:00 pm, during the Dallas Midtown Artwalk.
A note from the Artist:
I explore the process of death in both the human body and spirit. My work approaches the concept of human existence; the idea that our human forms come from the earth and return at death. Life and death exist simultaneously, and neither is to be more feared or celebrated than the other.
Human identity found solely in the physical bodies humans possess and material items used as social markers, run the risk of being rubbed out and dusted away. Human identity is found in the spirit and memories of the being, that they persist after death and decay.
“I’ve always been afraid to die, but I think I’m more afraid to live…”
– Jonathan Ramirez
SLANT gallery is located on the second level in the west wing of Dallas Midtown (Valley View) at 13331 Preston Rd. (LBJ & Preston).

Although it is child’s play, bubbles reveal the color spectrum that we cannot see. In keeping with Stuart Allen’s exploration with light and color, he has taken another step in presenting the color spectrum by photographing the amorphic shapes against the sky.

The gallery will host an opening reception for their upcoming exhibition “The Oil & Gas Show” on Thursday, Jan. 28 from 6 to 9 p.m. An investigation into the notoriously complex, elusive, political and intoxicating industry that is oil,
“The Oil and Gas Show” touches on issues of labor, finance, cultural variation and industrial development. The exhibition, which will be on view from Thursday, Jan. 28 through Sunday, Feb. 28 at the newly revamped LEVEL GALLERY (formerly WAAS Gallery), aims to expose the intricacies and complexities of the varying perspectives on the industry. It attempts to illuminate and hold in balance the vilification of the industry due to its harsh and real effects on the environment and the quality of many lives, while also illuminating the necessity of the industry and the ethical, intelligent and efficient practices already in place.
Various artists from around the nation will be involved in the kick-off show, including Brian Wagner (Philadelphia, PA), Jonas Criscoe, Thomas Macker (Jackson, WY), Nikki Moser, David Grassman (Pinedale,WY), Liz Appling (Austin, TX), and Dallas-based artists William Messimer and Blake Boettcher.

Samuel Lynne Galleries is pleased to announce the opening reception for artist Bernie Taupin’s exhibition Anarchaeology (an-ahr-kee-ol-uh-jee), curated by Karen & Michael Bivins, on September 12, 2015 from 5 – 8 pm. Artist will be in attendance at the opening reception, and the exhibition will be on view through October 23, 2015. For a digital catalogue of Bernie Taupin’s oeuvre, please use this link: http://issuu.com/slg2008/docs/bernie_taupin_issuu_catalogue_
Largely recognized for his longtime songwriting partnership with Elton John, Bernie Taupin continues to delight and surprise even those who think they know him best. In addition to lyricist, musician, producer, author, and award winner, Bernie Taupin is also a serious visual artist. He describes this creative avenue as, “simply the visual extension of what I have spent my life creating through words”.
Anarchaeology (an-ahr-kee-ol-uh-jee) comments on the ability of governments to cause chaos, create and perpetuate poverty and misery, and ultimately destroy civilizations. With titles like Agitate, Disambiguation, Lear In Madness, and Explore Noise, the paintings in this exhibition ignite intense emotion in viewers. The severely contrasting light and dark colors, fragmented edges, and torn middles of these paintings reflect the disturbance and pain of their subjects. There is harmony but it is somewhat harrowing. Viewers are able to draw similarities to the powerfully emotional artworks of Anselm Kiefer, Barnett Newman, Mark Rothko, and Clyfford Still – artists who Bernie Taupin has found a particular kinship with.
Bernie Taupin’s paintings often hover gracefully around the canons of both the Abstract Expressionist and Pop Art movements. His paintings are proof that abstraction can contain emotion, that nothing is off limits, and that painting has the power to be simultaneously violent and lovely. His stunning canvases are composed of abstract shapes, tantalizing color, and cryptic social commentary, captured in multimedia form. A man of limitless creativity, Bernie Taupin uses his alchemical skills to explore the visceral relationships between color and texture through his wide array of media; he often uses acrylic and oil paint, but stretches the standards of conventional media to include wood stains, spray paint, cheesecloth, wax, glass, bubble wrap, metal, and paper. His paintings become a product of his own kind of contained chance, as he controls and manipulates the dripping paint, in a way that almost can’t be contained by the canvas. The canvases in his body of work have been sewn, shellacked, smothered, and splattered upon using his arsenal of studio tools and weaponry.
Bernie Taupin’s artwork has been exhibited nationally from New York to Los Angeles, and his work can also be found in numerous significant private collections throughout the United States. Taupin’s newest exhibition, Anarchaeology (an-ahr-kee-ol-uh-jee) represents yet another evolution of his creative vision.

Songwriters are the poets of all times. They are archivists of history and call attention to societal issues by way of well crafted lyrical stories. Narrative artists are also record keepers of events of the past and present.
Listen is a collaboration of the narrative artist and poetic lyricist addressing political, ethical, and social issues. These may have been written about in the past and are still relevant concerns today. The artist will interpret and create a visual representation of these subjects. Though not literal, their work intends to inspire and inform the viewer from a particular perspective.
Join us for an opening reception on Saturday, May 16 from 6:00-10:00 pm. Art on display through July 11.

Zhulong Gallery is pleased to present my shoes, my stove, my life, a solo exhibition of recent digital works on canvas by London-based artist Luke Dowd. Earnest photographs of the artist’s stovetop serve as studies on both life and the formal and physical elements of image making. Evoking reflected light, the most subtle additions of color emphasize the act of technologic image-capture, be it through a scan of an already image, or the flash of a camera. Balanced arrangements and re-arrangements of a pair of the artist’s favorite shoes, a wine glass, various fruits shown from above, mirror the subdued aesthetic.
my shoes, my stove, my life will open on Friday, May 15, 2015 with an artist reception from 6-9P and run until June 20, 2015 at Zhulong Gallery, which is open Tuesday-Saturday 10A-5P. For more information or to schedule a private viewing, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

The H. Paxton Moore Fine Art Gallery at El Centro College presents:
“Dwayne Carter: Studies for an irrational.City”
March 19 – April 2, 2015
Reception: Thursday March 26th 4-6 pm
Paxton Moore Fine Art Gallery
El Centro College
801 Main Street / Dallas TX 75202
Gallery hours: M-W 10-4, TR 10-7, F 10-3
Dallas-based artist Dwayne Carter has been exploring the spaces in between real and virtual for many years, moving between drawing and painting, photography, video, digital imaging, and graphic design in his ongoing narrative project exploring individual and collective madness.
In his newest project, Studies for an irrational.City, we tour the backdrop of Dallas as a post-apocalyptic city, in which various characters undergo a series of dramatic interactions. Working with expressive oil and pencil paintings, based on both manual and digitally collaged studies, we journey through numerous local landmarks that have fallen into disarray.
No clues are given to help us decide whether ebola, past inequities, or simply apathy have left the Dallas Museum of Art, Dealey Plaza, DART stations and Deep Ellum in ruins. Rebirth emerging out of the ruins is hinted at in a visionary depiction of Fair Park as paradise. Primeval nature is celebrated as an ancillary to the city in ruins. Dante’s trilogy is used as a referent in this series of small painted studies based on the particular features of Dallas.
Studies for an irrational.City is the latest development in Carter’s ongoing Madness photo novella serie, and is a precursor to an upcoming group project that he is curating at the Bath House Cultural Center. This exhibition and the newest of these zines will be available this coming summer. He is a long-time faculty member teaching Multimedia at Richland College in Dallas.

(DALLAS) – National keynote speakers will lead an immersive and engaging discussion on the future of Dallas alongside city leaders and community members Feb. 27-28 during The Dallas Festival of Ideas, which is made possible by Bank of America, presented by the Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture and The Dallas Morning News, and produced in part by CrowdSource.
The Dallas Festival of Ideas urges community attendance to create a passionate and informed discussion on how and what will shape the next century in Dallas. The two-day event will begin Friday, Feb. 27 at the Dallas City Performance Hall by highlighting each of the five ideas for a world-class city: The Physical City, The Cultural City, The Innovative City, The Political City and The Educated City.
“This festival is about unveiling the next big idea, and taking that idea and applying it to Dallas,” said Bob Mong, editor of the Morning News. “The Dallas Festival of Ideas is about channeling progressive action. Something tangible will come out of this festival and I’m looking forward to the results.”
Keynote addresses and panel discussions on the various ideas will be delivered at multiple locations in the Dallas Arts District by nationally known speakers and Dallas-area panelists on topics that are essential to the future of Dallas, concluding with actionable next steps to improve the city. Free family programming will also be available at the Winspear Opera House Saturday, Feb. 28, from 9 a.m. until the closing ceremony.
There will also be a free panel open to the public focusing on “How can Dallas attract and retain its creative talent?”, introduced by Mayor Mike Rawlings and led by Southern Methodist University’s Zannie Voss (Booker T. Washington High School, 1 p.m.).

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Recycling, reusing, and repurposing has long been an important issue. We have become a “throw away” society. Excess has become a way of life. When is enough going to be enough?
In response to wasting our natural resources, many artists have become assemblage sculptors and painters.
This exhibit honors those artists who have expressed themselves creativety through the use of mixed media and recycled materials.
December Artwalk Reception, Saturday, December 20, 6:00-9:00 pm
Exhibit runs through January 10th
