Samuel Lynne Galleries To Represent Internationally Acclaimed Artist, Metis Atash

Screen Shot 2017-04-20 at 1.02.01 PM

Samuel Lynne Galleries is pleased to announce our exclusive Texas representation of Miami-based fine art sculptor, Metis Atash. Atash’s creations combine conceptual, minimalist, and pop art traditions. Her devotion for art, design, and fashion is apparent in her one-of-a-kind sculptures that award their living spaces with an aura of captivating experience. The gallery will present a showcase of her stunning “Punk Buddha” series in an exhibition titled “Buddha Goes Punk”. The artist will be in attendance at the exhibition, which will be on view from May 13, 2017 through June 24, 2017.

Born and raised in Munich, Metis Atash is German by nationality, but truly a citizen of the world. Her vast global travels led her to the Indonesian Island of Bali, where the lifestyle, culture, and philosophies quickly resonated with her, and eventually became the trajectory for her artistic style and her purpose as an artist. Bali is a place where love is the only energy to be found, and the location has appropriately become the source of inspiration for her “Punk Buddha” pieces. These unique sculptures are a fusion of worldly pleasures and spiritual insights, which have come to redefine the meaning of living. The sculptural figures radiate a presence far greater than their child-like size, due to their sparkling materiality and strong totemic essence.

Samuel Lynne Galleries will showcase Atash’s signature series of “Punk Buddha” sculptures that have gained widespread popularity around the world. Sculpted in fiberglass, covered with acrylic paint, and meticulously bathed by hand in upwards of 20,000 Swarovski crystals, this collection embodies the artist’s life journey, and her associations to Daoism. All her pieces are subject to a multi-step process of clay modeling, molding, sculpting, sanding, and lacquering. The objects of her work are based on the spiritual being, and these Buddha sculptures are inspired by ancient Daoist teachings. “Dao” translates to “path” or “way of life” and Atash has ensured that her creations reflect this property. They are also a reflection of her respect for Haute Couture, as well as contemporary art history. Each “Punk Buddha” is named for an iconic figure in fashion and art – from Basquiat to Balmain, Warhol to Hermes, Kusama to Chanel. With their dazzling exteriors, each resting figure is aimed to be perceived as the mirror of our eternal souls. They are a reflection of the relationship between humanity and the cosmos, health and longevity, action through inaction, and they represent the duality of life – the spiritual and the physical of our beings that produce harmony within the universe.

Atash’s entrepreneurial spirit has lead to the rise of her work around the globe. Her artwork has been exhibited in select galleries throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe, and has been featured in important international magazine publications such as Vogue, Elle Decor, Architectural Digest, and Haute Living.

100+ MILLION MISSING Traveling Art Exhibit

gendercideexhibit

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.  

See photos and a walk-through video.

Exhibit runs daily February 10 through February 15, 11am to 6pm

OUR PURPOSE:

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:

  1. For Women:  To provide modest financial support to at-risk women by commissioning baby booties from women’s cooperatives overseas, paying fair prices. To date, that income has allowed the women to provide 4,000 nourishing family meals — roughly 20,000 substantial individual meals.
  2. For Girls: To send at-risk girls to school in developing countries by supporting five schools for girls (or scholarship programs for girls) in Cambodia, Nepal, India, Uganda, and Guatemala. Each girl receives instruction, room, board (3 meals per day), health care, uniforms, and school supplies. 

Educating at-risk girls and empowering women with fair pay for work is critical to ending gendercide

Giovanni Valderas: Conspicuous Craft

Murchison Performing Arts Center, University of North Texas
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/

Capture
You are invited to join the Small Gallery for an opening reception titled 1•2•3

An opening reception will be held during the Midtown Artwalk on Saturday, May 21, from 6:00-9:00 pm.

The Small Gallery is located in the west wing of Valley View at 13331 Preston Rd. (Preston/LBJ).

1. John P. Irizarry – 
As an artist my paintings are dramatic like my personality. My abstractions call for your undivided attention. My sense of space is simple but fresh. The paintings are liberating fantasies where animated shapes meet color, lines and form to pull together as structural manifestations of a dream like state. I strive for each painting to succeed in constant movement and add energy to the viewers of my work.
2. Art in Venezuela –
We present expressions that represent a small snapshot of the Art in Venezuela, from the perspective of its creators.  The observer will find common themes, those that are part of what being “Venezolano” means. “The objective of art is not to adorn but to transcend…A piece of art is the eternity”. 
 – Oswaldo Vigas
3. Sammy Thomason
At a pen turning club meeting a member showed me a pen made with watch parts. I had to know where he got all of the parts and how he did it. “Go to the Internet and enter steampunk” was all he said. A new world was opened to me! Victorian Science Fiction. Where have you been all of my life? Wood, metal, brass, clocks, steam power, and gears, doesn’t get any better!

Beautiful Souls: Artwork By Sierra Barnes April 29

FullSizeRender_27

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. 

Where: Art Is Life Studio 1200 E Collins Blvd, #106 Richardson, Texas 75081

Home base for the event is the Richardson Public Library where there will be a major yarn bombing, information desk, and a temporary public art installation of “BIRD” in partnership with sculptor Brad Oldham.

While Brad Oldham’s “BIRD” graces the exterior of the library near the city hall fountain, a group of artists from Urban Sketchers will be sketching the scene for the day as well as a plethora of plein air artists will capture the natural beauty of the area.

Heading south around noon, stop at Four Bullets Brewery, Richardson Food Truck Park or Tavern on Main Street to satisfy those creative hunger pangs.

Venture on south afterwards to Richland College and enjoy the steel drum band, dance performances and create some art with Chartreuse using recycled and repurposed materials. Make a swing by McKamy Spring Park to hear a string quartet from the RSO, the Contemporary Chorale and a theatrical display by actors from the Richardson Theatre Centre. There will be no drought of things artistic and creative to do at Ricochet15!

Watercolor paintings by Connie Logan Levsen
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.

Reduce – Reuse – Recycle

1415112202

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.
For additional information and view times, please visit our website at:

The Small Gallery is located in the west wing at Dallas Midtown (Valley View) at 13331 Preston Rd., in Dallas (LBJ & Preston).
