JM Gallery: Reception Nov. 5 – Jay Bailey, Doug Gray, and Susan Perkins

baileygrayperkins

Join JM Gallery Saturday, November 5th from 5 until 8 for an opening reception featuring work from Jay Bailey, Doug Gray, and Susan Perkins.

Jay Bailey, Doug Gray, and Susan Perkins work in different mediums, but they share a powerful aesthetic and vision. Each expresses volumes with just a few simple gestures. The vision they express with those gestures is one of hope in a world where people too often feel threatened and alone.

In Jay’s paintings and drawings, line and color coalesce into uneasy, conflicted figures that we see as embodiments of the “other” but also as reflections of ourselves—despite perceived differences, the human condition is shared.

Doug creates dramatic narratives in ceramics, using abstract avian forms to express the power of human connection in the face of anxiety and the unknown.

And Susan weaves fiber and paper into clean, calligraphic forms that both represent and embody the interconnected nature of our community; a community that is at once beautiful and damaged, yet inextricably bound together. We invite you to come enjoy the works of Jay, Doug, and Susan and to share with us in their vision.
ABOUT JM GALLERY // JM Gallery offers works of art on paper and sculptural forms that engage both the eye and the mind. The gallery promotes artists who create smart, visually compelling work and showcases their art in a space that is inviting and accessible. JM Gallery is committed to working closely with artists as they develop their work and careers and to developing lasting relationships with collectors.

Lynne Harlow: Hey Sunshine at Liliana Bloch

Lynne Harlow

The Liliana Bloch Gallery is pleased to announce new exhibition by Lynne Harlow. The show, entitled Hey Sunshine, will open Saturday, April 2nd and will run through May 7th, 2016. The gallery will host a reception with the artist on Saturday, April 16 from 7 to 9:30 p.m.

Liliana Bloch Gallery
2271 Monitor St, Dallas, Texas 75226
http://www.lilianablochgallery.com/

Harlow’s works in Hey Sunshine continue her reductive exploration of light, color and material, placing added emphasis on the behavior of light in relation to color and space. The exhibition includes a combination of fine art and commercial materials that were employed for their inherent physical characteristics: the expansive glow of fluorescent Plexiglas, the subtle movement of vinyl curtain, the delicate translucency of sheer fabric. Theyare arranged in seemingly austere formal combinations, but each piece surpasses the formal to generate visual experiences that extend beyond the works themselves and into their surrounding space.

Lynne Harlow has exhibited her work nationally and internationally for the past 15 years, including in the United States, Mexico, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan. Her work was recently included in the 2013 deCordova Biennial at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, MA. Her additional museum exhibitions include MoMA PS1 (New York, NY); Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art (Ithaca, NY); Brattleboro Museum and Art Center (Brattleboro, VT); and Instituto de Artes Gráficas de Oaxaca (Oaxaca, Mexico).

heysunshine

Harlow has received awards from the Chinati Foundation, Rhode Island Foundation, and BAU Institute, and her work has been reviewed in publications, such as Artforum, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Providence Journal, and Artnet Magazine, among others. Harlow’s work is included in public collections, such as The Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Public Library, and Hunter College (all New York, NY); RISD Museum (Providence, RI); and The Philips Collection (Washington, DC). Harlow holds an MFA from Hunter College and a BA from Framingham State College. She lives and works in Providence, Rhode Island.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

“VINTAGE ARTS BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE”

Denison, Texas – IT IS THAT TIME AGAIN AND THE EXCITEMENT IS BUILDING……The Fourth Annual Blackland Prairie Artisan and Fibre Faire will take place at Texoma Exposition and Livestock Show Grounds at Loy Lake Park on October 17 and 18, 2015.

This festival is an annual event that brings together artists from Texas and surrounding states to sell their creations and the tools of their trade in a festival atmosphere.  In addition to shopping, attendees will be treated to free demonstrations by skilled artisans in what are considered by many to be “lost arts” such as spinning, weaving, rug-hooking, soap-making, wood carving, indigo dying, silk reeling and more.  The event is designed to engage the community.  Over 35+ artisans (returning favorites and new ones) will be offering their products including baskets, pottery, textiles, carvings, and jewelry.

In addition, musical entertainment will be provided by Bud Rager (the “Singing Son of Gun”), Stacey Whitson and the band, Not Together.  The Faire will have a designated location for the public to drop off knitted/crocheted items such as hats and scarves that will be donated to The Grayson County Shelter.

The festival and all demonstrations are free.  It is put on annually by the Blackland Prairie Artisan and Fibre Faire Committee, a group of experienced business owners, farmers, and fiber artists who share the common goal of promoting the arts in North Texas, and who have a wide range of experience and expertise in all areas of fiber production and use.

For additional information and a list of participating vendors and times of demonstrations, please go to www.bpaff.com. Flyer: BlacklandFlyer2015

wocabannerimage.2

The Prayers exhibition is extended until October 18th, 2014. To schedule private or group tours email us at info@wocaprojects.com or call (817) 901-7135

Through October 18th: WoCA Projects features Prayers: Flags and Fibers by Nicole Dane, an exhibition highlighting the works of fiber artist Nicole Dane. Dane’s work uses of a broad range of artistic media such as hand-woven and dyed textiles, metalworking, and various sculptural techniques. Her current body of work explores the concept of prayer and the transient quality of material and self in the context of existence. Expressed through her sculptures and wall-hangings, prayer is the exploration and sharing of a material manifestation of hope.

Prayers will be the featured exhibition during the Fort Worth Art Dealer’s Association’s Fall Gallery Night on Saturday, September 6th, from 2-9 p.m. Additionally, the Riverside Arts District will have its second Better Block event, Embrace the Street 2, on the same day from 11-9 p.m. So come out and enjoy a day full of art-making, food, and fun.

Nicole Dane was the winner of WoCA’s (Inter)Connections exhibition “Best of Show”  in October 2013, winning an opportunity for a solo-exhibition at the gallery.

April Public Art Show
Keller Town Hall • April 1 to 29, 2013
8 a.m. to 5 p.m. • Monday through Friday

Cathy Shepherd and Barbara Oliver Hartman bring their individual art forms to Keller Town Hall, 1100 Bear Creek Parkway for the month of April. Both ladies create with a pallet of brilliant color, texture and varied shapes using different media on their ultimate canvases.

Cathy brings her creations to life with iridescent transparent glass layered together with mosaic cut dichroics, blending blown and fused glass shards for more visual energy. “She strives to create art that is beyond her expectations leaving the viewer with the ‘WOW’ factor.”

ForDebbyAndCharles CS

Quiltmaking allows Barbara a means to express herself through the “warmth and softness” of the fibers with their “diversity and unlimited possibilities and inspiration.” “The work she is doing today reflects her attitudes about herself, life in general, with a little social commentary added for good measure.”

Join Cathy and Barbara Thursday evening, April 11th from 7 to 9 p.m. at Keller Town Hall for a special reception in their honor and enjoy their art along with conversation and refreshments. The show is free and suitable for all ages.
