The Artists Showplace Gallery is delighted to host one of the premier art events of the season. Plein Air Southwest Salon is a juried competition, exhibition and sale sponsored by the Outdoor Painters Society and showcased every April in Dallas. The annual event seeks to promote an appreciation for the process of en plen air, which is French for “in open air”. Most of the works were completed in a single painting session, painted outdoors on location, and are characterized by the bold use of color, design and the freshness of paint application.
The exhibit runs from April 8 to May 13. The opening reception and presentation of awards will take place on Saturday, April 8, from 3:00 to 6:00. On Sunday, April 9, the gallery will be open from 1:00 to 5:00, with artist demonstrations from 2:00 to 4:00.

11,000 Pairs of Handmade Baby Booties Go on Display in Dallas to Launch 100+ MILLION MISSING Traveling Art Exhibit
Exhibit features baby booties handmade by at-risk women in 30 developing countries
100+ MILLION MISSING is a traveling art exhibit to raise awareness of gendercide and to combat the extreme devaluation of women that leads to gendercide. The exhibit will feature 11,000 pairs of handmade baby booties, each pair representing 10,000 “missing” women and girls due to gendercide. Demographic scholars estimate 100 million to 125 million females are missing in the world today. The booties are the work of 500 women from women’s cooperatives in 30 developing countries. Many of the cooperatives were formed by nonprofits to help vulnerable women by providing them fair pay for work. The women used their income from making the baby booties to buy better food, medical care and schooling for their children. Dallas area high school students and knitting groups also contributed.
An “Artists Respond” section will highlight artwork produced by professional, gallery-exhibited artists from Dallas-Fort Worth and the international community, including gendercide-affected countries. Gendap.org requested the artists to offer their personal responses to gendercide and to the baby bootie installation.
Exhibit runs daily February 10 through February 15, 11am to 6pm

Gendercide Awareness Project
Beverly Hill, President & Founder, 214-924-3143
The United Nations Population Fund estimates that currently 100-125 million women and girls are missing in the world due to sex-selective abortions, female infanticide, gross neglect of girls, preventable maternal death, and lack of food and shelter for older women.
The Gendercide Awareness Project began in early 2011 when founder Beverly Hill of Dallas, Texas, recruited a team of volunteers to raise awareness about the little-known problem of gendercide. From 2011 to 2016 the Gendercide Awareness Project, a Dallas-based 501(c)3 charity focused on preventing gendercide, has educated the public while raising funds to purchase 11,000 pairs of baby booties. The organization focuses on two initiatives:
Educating at-risk girls and empowering women with fair pay for work is critical to ending gendercide

Opening Reception, Sunday, September 11, 2016, 3 – 6 PM at Brick Haus Collective, Artist Talk 3:30 PM
August 30 – December 4, 2016, FREE
This fall, the Greater Denton Arts Council and Brick Haus Collective proudly present a simultaneous showing of works by artist Giovanni Valderas. Valderas’ sculptural paintings present images and iconography that draw on his Latin American heritage. His works investigate identity, family, and most recently, address the social implications of gentrification in southwest Dallas. In his series Forged Utopia, Valderas creates public installations of piñata-like billboards that mimic real estate signage, but with phrases of common Spanish slang that, when placed in context, cryptically comment on the changing landscape they inhabit. A selection of his paintings will be shown at the Murchison, while an installation of his billboards will be displayed outdoors in the Brick Haus Collective green space. http://dentonarts.com/exhibitions/

Beautiful Souls: Artwork By Sierra Barnes
We are excited to have a brand new artist for this upcoming show.
Just in time for Mother’s Day, Sierra Barnes offers the kind of beautiful art that
pairs well with honoring the sacred energy of the feminine. Join us for an
opening reception from 7-10 p.m. April 29 at Art Is Life Studio.
At 19 years old, Sierra is self-taught artist born and raised in Dallas, Texas.
In 2002 she was diagnosed with Craniopharyngioma, a type of brain tumor
derived from pituitary gland embryonic tissue. This as well as other obstacles
and challenges in her life have not stopped her from pursuing her artistic passion.
It has instead inspired and motivated her as an artist as well as a person.
“Nobody’s perfect but everyone has beauty within them.
These pieces of art I have created were inspired by my own
struggles and experiences,” Sierra said.
Sierra is also a writer and writes a poem to go along with every single
piece of art she creates. Each of them are hand-written and attached
to the back of the painting.
“This art show is about how we are the souls within us and not just our
bodies,” Sierra said. “We can find beauty within our flaws and
imperfections. We judge one another and we sometimes judge ourselves.”
We look forward to seeing you. There will be light snacks served as well as
non-alcoholic beverages keeping in the studio’s mission of providing a
safe, sober space for individuals in recovery.

Watercolor paintings by Connie Logan Levsen
Exhibit: March 27 to May 30
Reception: Friday, April 24, 6 to 8 pm
Gallery Hours: Tuesday-Friday, 1 to 5 pm
Saturday, 10 am to Noon
From weapons to watercolors…see how one Artist went from a 30-year career in law enforcement to painting the delicate facets of crystal vases, tea-cups, and vintage quilts. This solo exhibition of Connie Logan Levsen is on view until May 30. A reception is scheduled for April 24 from 6-8pm.
From the artist:
I think of my paintings as a “moment in time” depicting ordinary objects and extraordinary people. My artwork does not take critical views of social, political or cultural issues. I strive to paint interesting objects and people using vivid colors and light, simply because I find it enjoyable and challenging.
I have always loved art, but like most I spent most of my time and energy earning a living in a more traditional way. In 2008 I retired after 30 years plus in law enforcement. Now I have time to paint…and paint…and paint.

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 creatively through the use of mixed media and recycled materials.
Opening Reception: Saturday, November 15 from 6:00-9:00 pm
Exhibit on display through January 10th.

We played Cowboys and Indians as children. In Texas these games were ingrained in us as part of our culture. We were not told the real story of Cowboys or Indians. Many countries still believe that Cowboys wear Stetsons, western shirts. huge belt buckles, boots and spurs.

Mention the iconic Frida Kahlo today and one conjures up images of an elaborate floral hairdo, photos with a pet monkey, and a woman of distracting beauty. Despite the colorful images we envision, Kahlo’s life was filled with emotional and physical turmoil, which led her to paint the surrealistic story of her life.
Featuring original works from 18 local artists, The Frida Show is an eclectic exhibit honoring the influence, passion, and inspiration of the iconic Mexican painter, Frida Kahlo.

We are looking for postcards, letters, journal pages,sketches, and

From the mundane to the sacred, there are many forms of containment that can be found in our daily lives; from the familiar cup that holds your coffee, to an heirloom photo in a treasured locket. Clothing contains our bodies as our subconscious contains our dreams, all the while we build ships in bottles, and wrap gifts in boxes. From the womb that holds us in the beginning, to the urn that contains our ashes in the end; it seems we prefer our belongings, bodies, thoughts, and sometimes even our lives to be contained.
Exhibit remains on display November 16-January 11. Additional view times include Fridays 6-8pm, Saturdays 12-6pm, and Sundays 12-4pm.

When life brought these three South American women to Dallas, it was not obvious how much they had in common given their very different personalities and backgrounds. Dancing tango was one of the first activities that Sabrina, Barbara and Miriam embraced together. The music of the tango first conquered their hearts, then inspired their art.
Tango is explosive emotions, meticulous calculation, spontaneous synchronicity, creative interpretation… Qualities that these three artists bring to life in each of the paintings chosen for this show.
