SUNDAY, October 11, 2015

For twenty-nine years, the Bath HouseCultural Center has presented its annualDía de los Muertos art exhibition. One of the longest-running Día de los Muertos events in the region, this exhibition of altars and contemporary art draws inspiration from the ancient Mexican tradition of the Day of the Dead. The annual autumn custom merges aspects of pre-Columbian ceremonial rites and the Catholic observance of All Saint’s Day. Throughout the years, this fascinating marriage of cultures and beliefs has given birth to a type of artistic imagery, styles and aesthetics that have been admired and embraced by artists from Mexico and, increasingly, from many parts of the world.

This year, the main focus of the Bath House exhibition is on the depiction of the festive side of the Day of the Dead.

The show includes art by Chandra Armstead, Cynthia Armstrong, Robin Bachtler Cushman, Sissy Bingham, Dan Birlew, Penelope Bisbee, Angie Bolling, Amy Branch-Lambert, Tarran Caldwell, Hector Cantu, Paul Carranza, Gabrielle Castañeda Pruitt, Carlos Castellanos, Justin Clumpner, Cynthia Daniel, Dan Dudley, Lori Dudley, Brett Dyer, Ann Slate Gaspari, Kelly Giesecke, Cynthia Green, DJ Guerra, Melissa Hayes, George Wayne Hensley, Michael Hilden, Duke M. Horn, Mary Ann Kaylor, Joanna LaGrone-Headrick, Craig Lewis Hoffman, Miriam Lizcano, Rebecca Martin, Cyndi McDonnell, Brian McGregor, Malachy McKinney, Marcela Mihaloglou, Vincent Morin, Jr., Alicia Norrigan, Teri Novelen, Sharon O’Callaghan Shero, Eva Peña, Kristen Penrod, Kelly Pevehouse, Beth Herrin-Phelps , E.

Sartin, Kate Schatz, Linda Slaughter, Fancy Oliver Tanner, Madeleine Terry, Sammy L. Thomason, Mary Ann Turner, Jose Vargas, Judy Williamson, Theresa Wood, and Mayra Viviana Zamora.

Post: Recent artwork by Shawn Saumell

 

 shawnsaumell2

October 10, 2015-January 30, 2016

Presented at the White Rock Lake Museum, located inside the BathHouse Cultural Center.

Shawn Saumell is a visual artist born in New York who currently lives and works in Dallas. When the artist was first asked to develop a new exhibition, he considered the mission of the White Rock Lake Museum of bringing the preservation of the environment to the forefront of public discussion. The artist’s new show,Post, is an important project that echoes some of the ideas and concepts of ecological conservation that are regularly presented in the museum.

Post features a series of prints mounted on aluminum panels that depict colorful, yet desolated and otherworldly desertscapes. Within some of the artist’s imagined environments, he includes abandoned metal buildings and other structures that might represent societies or cultures perhaps long-gone. These landscapes could symbolize Earth or other planets whose civilizations may have made similar self-destructive choices to their environment. The title of the exhibition refers to the co-relation of Mr. Saumell’s invented spaces with views and thoughts about post-war, post-natural disaster, post-nuclear winter, post-apocalyptical world, post-Earth civilization, and other similar concepts.

More information about the artist can be found at www.shawnsaumell.com.
