EXPRESSIONS – New photography book by Randy Ziegler

DFW ©Randy Ziegler

My recently published photography book EXPRESSIONS is now available!

Excerpt from the book –  “The photographic images for this book are some personal favorites from my archives. Early in my photography career, I opened my eyes and ears to be a witness to humanity. A purveyor of life, always open to its influences and impressions. It was only natural that I would create images to preserve the unforgettable expressions of life, and share them with the world.”

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.

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.

CADD announces CADDfund 2017

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, TX 75212

Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas will again celebrate creativity and community with a Sunday Soup Supper onMarch 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 will be awarded to a current or previous B.A, B.F.A., M.A. or M.F.A. graduate or candidate from an institution within 100 miles of Dallas. Six finalists will be selected from all of the applicants by three esteemed jurors to be announced soon. (Past jurors included: Gabriel Ritter, Judy Deaton, William Rudolph, Michael Mazurak, Jed Morse and Justine Ludwig.)

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 will go on sale in January. 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.

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.

ABOUT CADD – Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas (CADD) is a non-profit membership organization of galleries formed in 2006 for the purpose of promoting the advancement of contemporary art on all levels. Members are committed to represent the highest standards of contemporary art, while recognizing the importance of integrity and responsibility in working with artists, collectors, museum professionals, and the cultural community of Dallas.

Each year CADD offers a Scholarship to a graduating high school senior from Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. The Scholarship is awarded to a student pursuing a Fine Arts degree at an accredited university or art institute. The scholarship may be used for tuition, books, equipment, travel, and/or supplies assisting the student in their academic endeavors. Proceeds from CADD events assists with the CADD Scholarship and CADD Educational Programs.

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.

And when I say “Kids,” I mean students aged from 17-75!
Something fabulous is going on at Brookhaven College! The energy is palpable- the music is blasting in the sculpture courtyard while sparks fly from metal,

absorbed with color, light and shadow in Drawing and Painting.

The Particulars:
Student Art Sale and Fundraiser, hosted by the Art Club of Brookhaven College

EASL: Give A Little….Help A Lot Today, November 29th, on GIVING TUESDAY!!!

easllogo2016

North Texas artists need your support!  To show your support, we hope you will make a gift to the Emergency Artist’s Support League.  As you probably know, visual artists and visual arts professionals often live within narrow financial constraints, even in the best of times. A medical crisis, fire, or other emergency can result in catastrophe.

In response, artists and arts professionals joined together to found EASL (Emergency Artists Support League) in 1992. EASL is operated by a 100% volunteer Board of Directors, allowing for maximum funds to be distributed to artists in need. Since its conception, EASL has provided over $475,000 in grant assistance to North Texas area visual artists and visual art professionals.

We want you to know that we are currently busy at work on new EASL initiatives; including new PR materials, a new website at EASL.US, and the distribution of a bi-annual E-Newsletter. In addition, new programs at area galleries, universities, and museums are being considered and will be rolled out later this year. Of course, the ever-popular Art Heist Art Auction will again bring artists and art collectors together in April 2018 to support local artists in need. We have great plans for the coming years, and we look forward to your participation as an EASL ambassador in our community.

The success of any organization is due in greatest measure to the support that it receives from the community it serves.  That is why we hope that you will support EASL today with a 100% tax-deductible contribution.

Donating is easy through our website at  EASL.US

Contributions mean a great deal to EASL, but they are even more important to artists and families in need. Again, thank you for your generous support.

Unseenamerica

Unseenamerica, our free curriculum-based arts initiative committed to giving underserved youth and teens a voice within their community is back in full swing with photography instructor Jessie Pollak. The program will culminate next spring in an exhibit of these 10 talented students’ work that will open at the kid’s school, Bayles Elementary, and travel elsewhere in the community. Stay tuned!
On Creativity…

Once upon a time civics was taught in our schools in which students had the opportunity to develop into engaged citizens. Today only eight states require that civics be taught at all. I just returned from the National Guild for Community Arts Education in Chicago where I had the opportunity to participate in a pre-conference presented by Michael Rohd of the Center for Performance and Civic Practice on developing such a practice using the arts as the driver. I became to wonder what it would be like to imagine our work as exchange, not just presentation. I began to envision the possibilities of becoming a community resource not just a space for the dissemination of culture. Don’t get me wrong, I think the Creative Arts Center does an amazing job of building community through creating art through the use of a strong studio practice. And I think we are addressing key social issues for underserved, marginalized and at-risk communities through such programming as ArtAbility, Camp MetalHead and unseenamerica as well as exciting collaborations with The Bridge and Café Momentum But civic practice using teaching artists working with individuals and groups to build healthier and more equitable communities is formidable work that impacts advocacy, dialogue, story sharing and capacity building. Rather than simply transactional, it is purposeful, intentional and authentic. One example of that process is a collaboration with Art 180 and Legal Aid in Richmond, Virginia which addresses the issue of mass incarceration intervening in the school to prison pipeline and creating a dialogue between young people and law enforcement. Young Chicago Authors and Kuumba Lynx Performance Ensemble are two groups employing spoken word, hip hop and rap to meet kids where they live and breathe. All you need to do is pick up a newspaper to see what is relevant in the lives of young people in many Chicago neighborhoods like just being able to safely walk to and from school. I came back from an exciting week in arts education in Chicago made all the more wonderful by the Cubs World Series win to an election that has changed the world as we thought we knew it overnight. Now even more than ever we will need this kind of work in our communities that give youth the voice they deserve to become active and engaged future citizens.

GREAT CAUSE AND WONDERFUL ARTIST

John Egeland

Medium: Acrylic on canvas                                Size: 16″ x 20″

Price: $2,000

The Guild is proud to assist John Egeland, one of its members, in a project we all feel is very worthy. John is a strong advocate of the homeless population in the Dallas area and donates much of his time to the cause. In addition, as part of our fall show Creme de la Creme, John is donating all profits from the sale of his beautiful painting, “Forsaken”, to the Dallas Life Foundation.

The story of Dallas LIFE starts with a man named Reverend Robert J. Key, one of the founders of the Union Gospel Mission in 1949. With Dallas’ homeless population growing in the post war years, Reverend Key left UGM to begin establishing the Dallas Rescue Mission. It was this endeavor that would become Dallas LIFE, now the largest homeless shelter in North Texas.
Dallas Rescue Mission opened its doors in 1954 in a small storefront location on Commerce Street. There, Rev. Key would minister to the men who came to him nightly for shelter and a hot meal. Rev. Key and his volunteers kept the shelter open every night for the next 25 years.

Please keep in mind that 3.5 million people in the US will be homeless this year. One third of those will suffer from chronic mental illness and 1.4 million will be children. These are staggering numbers that we should all want to see decrease rapidly. They need our help and we should all do our part to end the struggle for at least some of these.

Will you please help John, and more importantly the homeless community, by purchasing this beautiful work of art.

You can go visit our Creme de la Creme show and see this wonderful piece of art at the Frisco Discovery Center during normal business hours.
