Suzanne Sparks just returned from a month-long visit to Africa.  From Ngorongoro Crater to Victoria Falls to the Sarengeti to Karen Blixen’s home (from the movie ‘Out of Africa’), she traveled to visit villages, National Wildlife Parks and five different countries.  Suzanne stayed in tent-cabins and tracked wild animals in the ‘bush’.  Visiting traditional tribal peoples in their villages and hearing stories of their culture was enlightening.  Suzanne returned with her collection of  authentic tribal beaded jewelry and textiles.  Come and visit while Suzanne shares her adventures.  The slide show begins promptly at 10:15.  FREE but please call 817-266-3085 to let us know that you are coming.  We want to be sure to have enough cookies and punch.

Catharsis/Dream Memory opening March 12 at the OCCC

catharsisanddreammemory

Catharsis/Dream Memory

Reception: March 12, 2016, 5:30pm8:00pm

March 4, 2016 – April 8, 2016

Oak Cliff Cultural Center presents Catharsis and Dream Memory, a dual exhibition by Robert Ahboah and Andrea Rogers. Exhibits open March 4, 2016 and will close on April 8, 2016. A reception will be held for both exhibits on Saturday, March 12, 2016 from 5:30pm8:00pm.

Catharsis by Robert Ahboah

The inspiration for Catharsis came from a concept regarding an integration of Robert Ahboah’s cultural past and his present day life as a contemporary sculptor. Ahboah’s ideas involve minimal shapes and materials reminiscent of the survival and livelihood of the Native American Indian, including items such as the bow, the tipi, and the cradle-board. InCatharsis, he uses natural elements such as rawhide, deerskin and wood that his ancestors used, as well as a wide range of materials familiar in contemporary art like steel, nylon and PVC. As a full-blooded Native American Indian from Oklahoma, Ahboah often struggles with his identity as an Indian. Catharsis is Ahboah’s attempt at releasing strong and prideful emotions about his cultural roots contrasted to his contemporary reality.

Dream Memory by Andrea Rogers

Dream Memory is about mark making, process, organizing, and collecting. These actions extend into the actual creating process as well as the concept. Memory has been a common thread throughout Rogers’ work, literal and implied. Flowers and botanicals serve as metaphors for the earliest of memories, especially those moments of quiet exploration and realization of the young self. The storage of memories is referenced in the organization and composition of the pieces. Andrea Rogers makes them the way she wants to see them; not always the exact way they existed. Rogers uses printmaking techniques, as well as drawing and painting to create different textures and line. These differences in techniques separate the images, but the layering of them holds them together. The repetition of imagery and elements throughout Rogers’ work are meant to create a visual vocabulary that hints at a narrative, but specificity is not important to the artist. Instead, Rogers hopes to create an evolving visual syntax that changes and rewrites itself like a persistent memory.

February 2016 at the SMU Meadows Museum

CURRENT EXHIBITS
dalisurrealistsmu
Salvador Dalí: An Early Surrealist Masterpiece
Through June 19

The 1930s were one of the most creatively fruitful decades of Salvador Dalí’s career. L’homme poisson (The Fish Man) shows both his tremendous imagination as well as his technical adroitness, and offers a revealing glimpse into the artist’s inner psyche. After an auspicious beginning as part of the first exhibition of surrealist works held in the U.S., in 1931, the painting has remained out of the public domain for much of its existence. This exhibition celebrates the Meadows’ acquisition of L’homme poisson-the first painting by Dalí to enter the collection of a Texas museum-and presents a renewed look at this early masterpiece within the artist’s oeuvre of surrealism. Learn More

This exhibition has been organized by the Meadows Museum, and is funded by a generous gift from The Meadows Foundation.

Between Paris and Texas: Marie Cronin, Portraitist of the Belle Époque
February 14 – June 5

Between Paris and Texas: Marie Cronin, Portraitist of the Belle Époque is the first monographic exhibition of Cronin’s (1867-1951) art and will feature a focused selection of her paintings, including works shown in the salons of Paris, as well as official portraits of Texas statesmen that hang at the Texas State Capitol, such as Alfonso Steele (1817-1911), the last survivor of the Battle of San Jacinto. A Texas-raised artist, Cronin studied with Claudio Castelucho (Spanish, 1870-1927) in Paris during the first decade of the twentieth century. Following her return from Europe, Cronin would continue her artistic career back in Texas while also carrying out the exigencies of a family in the business of expanding railroad operations across the state. Learn More

This exhibition has been organized by the Meadows Museum, and is funded by a generous gift from The Meadows Foundation.

 

Process and Innovation: Carlotta Corpron and Janet Turner
February 14 – June 5

This exhibition will present the work of two pioneering artists working and teaching in Texas in the 1940s and 1950s, Carlotta Corpron (1901-1988) and Janet Turner (1914-1988). Corpron, working in photography, and Turner, working in painting and printmaking, both taught art education at Texas universities and came into their own maturity of style during the middle of the twentieth century. Process and Innovation: Carlotta Corpron and Janet Turner explores the work of both artists made during this period of consummate experimentation. This exhibition draws entirely from holdings within the Dallas area, including Bywaters Special Collections of SMU, which holds an impressive collection of art by both Turner and Corpron. Learn More

This exhibition has been organized by the Meadows Museum, and is funded by a generous gift from The Meadows Foundation.
