The Oak Cliff Society of Fine Arts was originally established at the home studio of the renowned Dallas artist, Frank Reaugh, in 1926. When founding member and former president Mrs. E.P. Turner passed away in 1938, the family home was deeded to the OCSFA. Plans for what would become I35 forced the E.P. Turner House to relocate to its current location at 401 N Rosemont Ave. where today it continues to serve as the home of the Oak Cliff Society of Fine Arts. The Society has been hosting art exhibits for more than 80 years, including recent exhibits highlighting works of The Dallas Nine, Women Artists of the Texas Centennial, and works by contemporary Oak Cliff artists. Located in the Winnetka Heights section of Oak Cliff, Turner House promotes the arts, celebrates life events, fosters community connections, and preserves history. It is known for its annual Salon Series, celebrating music, art, and architecture, as well as free community-focused events such as Movies on the Lawn. The organization received the 2013 Stewardship Award from Preservation Dallas for its decades-long commitment to historic preservation.

TACA 50th Anniversary Gala Sept. 8

TACA 50th Anniversary Gala to be Held on September 8th, 2017

DALLAS, Texas, July 6, 2017 – TACA has set Friday, September 8 for its 50th Anniversary Gala, to be held at Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek, 2821 Turtle Creek Blvd.

Wanda Gierhart, TACA’s 50th Anniversary Chair, said, “TACA’s Custom Auction Gala has historically signaled the commencement of Dallas’ black tie season. This year’s event will be exceptional as we celebrate the organization’s many successes over the last five decades. Because the organization is poised to expand its reach to include the visual arts, the party on September 8th will be the last of its kind, lending extra excitement to the proceedings while setting the stage for exciting changes in 2018.”

Gierhart, along with her fiancé, Chef Dean Fearing, are co-chairing the gala, which begins at 6:30 p.m. with cocktails, and continues with an exclusive TACA-commissioned performance, a luxury live auction, a delectable dinner and entertainment. The co-chairs for the gala are the TACA 50th Anniversary committee members.

TACA will present a commissioned celebratory performance directed by TITAS’ Charles Santos and choreographed by Dallas Black Dance Theatre’s Bridget Moore. The new work will include TACA’s grantees: Dallas Black Dance Theatre, Dark Circles Contemporary Dance and Bruce Wood Dance Project.

Gierhart added, “After the performance, we’ll begin our luxury live auction. As most of you know, when it comes to auctions, Ialways bring my A-game. Since this is TACA’s Golden Anniversary and TACA brought the concept of live auctions to Dallas five decades ago in the first place, I promise that this year’s packages will be appropriately irresistible.”

 

Following the live auction, guests will enjoy a delectable seated dinner throughout the Mansion’s labyrinth of stunning interior spaces, followed by a lively after-party. The dress, described as “black tie by decade – 1970s to present,” is a way to acknowledge the organization’s longevity and approach their attire with maximum creativity.

Wolford McCue, TACA Carlson president and executive director, said, “TACA has grown into a valued arts funding and service organization that provides an array of grants and innovative programs. Our investment in the arts translates to the premiere of new works, impactful residencies, community initiatives and greater opportunities for artists and audiences to connect. Our community reach will continue to grow as we implement a new strategic plan in 2018 that will focus on supporting all of the arts in Dallas by providing funds for visual arts organizations as well as performing arts. Even though this will be the last gala of its type, TACA will continue to hold exceptional events next year, and for many years to come.”

Unseenamerica is an 8-week curriculum-based program, taught by a professional photographer, teaches digital photography at nearby Bayles Elementary, which is CAC’s namesake school.  Bayles began as a one-room school house in 1981 near what is now Buckner International.  CAC was built during the WPA in 1935 and Bayles operated here until the mid-50s. The current DISD Bayles Elementary School opened in 1956 about a mile from CAC where it is currently. Significantly, Bayles is the oldest school operating under the same name in Dallas County.
Modeled on a program that originated in New York under Bread and
 Roses, the cultural arm of SEIU Local 1199, the largest labor union in the country, unseenamericawas originally designed to serve low-wage workers, day labors, homeless citizens and others often ignored in our society. When CAC brought the program to Dallas in 2008 we were the first to adapt the program for children.
 
Unseenamerica is far from a fun enrichment program for disadvantaged kids. It is designed to instill a stronger sense of self and community through artistic practice. Unseenamerica does not simply teach photography skills, but also creates community, enables the practice of democracy and promotes social justice.
Diana Pollak
Executive Director

CADD Fund Announces Finalists! Join us Sunday, March 5

CADDfund

Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas Present

CADD FUNd 2017

Sunday, March 5th, 5:00 – 7:30 pm

3015 AT TRINITY GROVES
3015 Gulden Lane

Dallas, Texas 75212

Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas will again celebrate creativity and community with a Sunday Soup Supper on March 5th at 3015 at Trinity Groves. CADD FUNd 2017 will be a fun, fast-paced evening of sharing innovative ideas about potential artistic projects. CADD FUNd 2017 will make possible a high-impact idea that needs the support of the DFW arts community.

The idea for the annual CADD FUNd was inspired by similar events throughout the United States such as Feast in Brooklyn, Incubate in Chicago and Spread in Santa Fe. Over the past several years, numerous organizations have taken the basic premise of a Sunday soup dinner – collect creative proposals, invite the public to pay, eat, and listen, and then democratically vote for a winner – and adapted it to their own local purposes.

This year’s CADD FUNd finalists were selected by three esteemed jurors including; Anna Smith, Curator of Education, Nasher Sculpture Center; Sue Canterbury, The Pauline Gill Sullivan Associate Curator of American Art, Dallas Museum of Art; and Dr. Rodger Kobes, art collector and enthusiast.

The six finalists are: Justin Archer/UNT, Jessie Barnes/UNT, Spencer Evans/UTA, Dannie Liebergot/UNT, Juan Negroni/SMU, and Diego Romo/UNT.

During the event on March 5th, the finalists will present short proposals for original and yet-to-be-realized new projects. Members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask questions and then the audience participants will vote for their favorite project. After a short recess to tally the votes, the winner of CADD FUNd 2017 will be announced!

The CADD FUNd is $2500 – $7500 + and beyond. Funds are raised by ticket sales and will go to the winner chosen by the audience. Tickets are $40 per person and are on sale now. Tickets will not be available at the door. In an effort to make CADD FUNd 2017 as accessible as possible for the students and artists, $10 of each ticket sold will be applied to jurors’ fees and administrative costs in lieu of charging application fees.

The 2015 CADD FUNd was awarded to Rachel Rushing for her project- Sunset Art Studios: An Oak Cliff artist run studio and exhibition space. Named for the former Sunset Streetcar Line, Sunset Art Studios is a culturally invested art space. A group of local artists develop their work while providing the surrounding community opportunities to directly engage in the process of art. Ms. Rushing will give a short presentation at the event about her project, Sunset Art Studios.

RESERVE YOUR SEAT TO VOTE – BUY YOUR TICKET TODAY! 

While CADD FUNd is about raising much-needed cash, we hope that it will also be a forum to discuss the many other needs and resources that help make projects happen.

DALLAS MUSEUM OF ART announces ART BALL Chairs Ann and Lee Hobson and reveals theme, “ALL THAT GLITTERS,” for 52nd ANNUAL GALA April 22, 2017

artball-banner-2017

The Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) recently announced local philanthropists Ann and Lee Hobson will serve as chairs of the 2017 Art Ball and unveiled “All That Glitters” as the theme of the annual fundraiser, which will be held Saturday, April 22, 2017, at the Museum in downtown Dallas. Proceeds from the event will support the DMA’s commitment to providing free access to its world-renowned collection, as well as various exhibitions and educational programs throughout the year.

“I’m very proud to be part of an event that supports the DMA, especially its commitment to free general admission, access, and educational programming.  All of the money raised by the Art Ball goes to toward the operating budget that supports access to art,” Ms. Hobson said. “Unfettered access to art is a cause that is very near to my heart, and it is my hope that this year’s Art Ball will allow us to share the Museum’s beautiful collection and educational resources with more visitors than ever before in 2017.”

Selected by the Hobsons, this year’s theme will embrace the romantic overtones and colors of a Parisian spring and was inspired by one of the Museum’s most recent acquisitions, Flowers in a Vase with Two Doves, by nineteenth-century French painter François Lepage. With the assistance of Todd Fiscus of Todd Events, the ethereal scene will be brought to life with extravagant floral displays, ambient music of the period and decadent shades of blue, soft lavender and ivory.

The evening will commence with a cocktail hour inspired by one of the Champs-Élysées’ most iconic landmarks, The Grand Palais. The internationally esteemed gallery was erected for the Universal Exhibition of 1900 and annually welcomes more than two million visitors to revel in the glory and grandeur of French art.

Art Ball 2017 will feature a luxury live auction, sponsored by Christie’s.  The live auction will be curated by Live Auction Chairs Merry Vose and Rajan Patel and will include an array of opulent items, such as: once-in-a-lifetime travel packages, curated culinary experiences, and unique entertainment opportunities. The evening will feature a lavish multi-course seated dinner catered by Cassandra Fine Catering.  After dinner, an element of surprise has been added to the celebration. The DMA has announced they will not reveal the theme or any after dinner details, but promise instead to deliver “Texas-sized surprises” exclusively for Art Ball patrons invited to attend the late-night festivities.

Noted sponsors in place for the evening include: AT&T, Christie’s, Curtis Specialized Moving and Storage, Dallas Art Fair Foundation, Delivery Limited, Inc., Forty Five Ten, Highland Park Village,        J.P. Morgan, Jennifer and John Eagle/John Eagle Dealerships, Melissa and Trevor Fetter/Tenet Healthcare, Neiman Marcus, Peggy and Carl Sewell/Sewell Automotive Companies, Sidley Austin LLP, Stanley Korshak, Modern Luxury Dallas and My Sweet Charity.

Over the past 20 years, the DMA’s Art Ball has raised more than $27 million to support the Museum’s mission of engaging and educating the community through art. Last year’s event raised $1.3 million in net revenue, and the 2017 gala is expected to continue the strong tradition of giving, which has greatly benefitted the Museum and its visitors for more than 50 years.

For more information about Art Ball 2017, as well as underwriting opportunities, please visit www.DMA.org or contact the Art Ball Office at artball@DMA.org or 214.922.1353.

Located in the nation’s largest arts district, the Museum acts as a catalyst for community creativity, engaging people of all ages and backgrounds with a diverse spectrum of programming, from exhibitions and lectures to concerts, literary events, and dramatic and dance presentations. Since the Museum’s return to free general admission in 2013, the DMA has welcomed more than two and a half million visitors, and enrolled more than 100,000 people in DMA Friends, a free program available to anyone who wishes to join focused on active engagement with the Museum.

The Dallas Museum of Art is supported, in part, by the generosity of Museum Members and donors, the citizens of Dallas through the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs, and the Texas Commission on the Arts.
