Inspired by the Japanese aesthetic of Wabi-Sabi, in this exhibit of abstract watermedia paintings Hailey Herrera integrates freeform lines and shapes; finding her inspiration from nature and her surroundings. Unless she has a specific theme in mind, she begins with some calligraphic lines without a preconceived idea of result. In the process of interplaying lines and shapes spontaneously, an idea emerges and the painting reveals something new to which her intuition and emotion responds. This spontaneous decision process leads to a fascinating and unconventional result.
The work displayed at Elm Street Studio is an ongoing study of experimentation in watermedia abstract painting. Please join us at Elm Street Studio in Keller, TX for a complimentary reception and meet the artist on Friday, March 24 from 6 to 8 pm. For more information and to see images of Herrera’s work, please visit www.ElmStreetStudioKeller.com. Fresh Paint: Watermedia Abstracts by Hailey Herrera will be on display through April 27, 2017.

Stereotropes Opening Reception
Mokah Gallery in Dallas, Texas
Stereotropes is a show that takes a lighthearted look into daily narratives influenced by current and nostalgic pop-culture. Conversations take place in a visual language where voice becomes color as two voices build a new narrative from opinions and memories. On a most basic level the show looks at the relation of tropes, archetypes and clichés as parallels are drawn between subject matters as conversations flow through times of serious discussion, to joking and outright insult wars. The images presented are created to be viewed with the use of 3D glasses so the viewer can decipher each voice separately along with seeing each image in all its collaborative and chaotic glory.
Reception runs from 6pm-9pm. Thomas Caleb Menikos and Michael Veronese will be giving an artist talk at 7:30pm.
Mokah Art Gallery, an extension of Life in Deep Ellum, serves to promote culture and art in Deep Ellum and surrounding communities. At the Cultural Center, Mokah Art Gallery exhibitions feature contemporary art of local artists from the experimental, the emerging, and the established.

Join us on Saturday, June 13th from 6-8 p.m. at the Moudy Gallery at TCU for the My Fort Worth: Snapshots of our Communities exhibition.
Over the course of four weeks ACT United artists engaged Boys and Girls Club participants in photography workshops. Participants learned about the history of documentary photography, elements of art, and principles of design in order to document their everyday lives and the communities with which they identify. The selection of works by these young artists illustrates common themes evident in a variety of lives. The purpose of this project is to create links across neighborhood lines reminding us of our shared collective experiences. The culmination of their work will be brought together in a photography exhibition showcasing various communities from the city of Fort Worth. This exhibition is in partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Fort Worth, WoCA Community Arts Initiative and The Art Galleries at TCU.

Galleri Urbane Marfa + Dallas is pleased to announce Déjà vu: a collective show with this year’s Dallas Art Fair artists. The exhibition opens on Saturday, May 16 from 6:00 to 8:30 PM and runs through June 20.
Bouncy by Andrea Marie Breiling
The show includes artists: GailPeter Borden, Andrea Marie Breiling, Jessica Drenk, Rachel Hellmann, Dylan Cale Jones, Samantha McCurdy, Irby Pace and Jason Willaford.
Viewers will recognize form, color and motion as motifs in the show. Below artists’ précis of what you do not want to miss. The show comprises of a portion of Borden’s 46 foot 32 piece installation which unquestionably depicts the artist’s architectural influence. Yet, his artwork finds its sole character removed from the conventional concepts of architecture. If Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s Color Theory is used as model to understand Borden’s work, one can say that the impressions of color reaching our brain are molded by three elements: perception, the mechanism of human vision and the way our brains digest data.
Irby Pace, a native of Odessa, Texas, is the artist behind the sold-out and beloved photograph Prada. Featured in this month’s Patron magazine, Pace’s multi-colored smoke clouds are set up in gorgeous open landscapes and spaces and placed systematically to highlight negative space.
Implement 38 by Jessica Drenk
Jessica Drenk works are widely collected and sought after. Drenk’s knowledge and admiration of nature influence her installations and sculptures. Her organic sculpture Implement 38, made of hundreds of pencils, show her tremendous talent when it comes to craftsmanship and her inspiration from systems of information.
Samantha McCurdy’s eye-catching Samantha McCurdy SS15 installation will immerse visitors in a multi-sensory experience. McCurdy originally from Philadelphia, is a local favorite, bringing what was inspired by an accident into a sensual playful artwork with fashion notes.
Andrea Marie Breiling’s series of large scaled paintings are decidedly choreographed and composed over time. In Bouncy, viewers can trace through her several layers the deliberately considered steps made during its creation. “Composed of explosive gestures, garish colors, acidic overtones, and gritty surfaces, they are dark and moody like the night, but radiant and charged like the blood orange moon.”
The newest works by Jason Willaford, America and Guilt Quilt (edition 3 of 3 still available) explore his most recent ideas on evolution and process; multidimensional objects are transformed into topographic images. The public is invited to attend an opening reception starting at 6:00 PM on May 16, 2015.

ARTIST RECEPTION & ART EXHIBITION
SATURDAY, MAY 16, 2015 5PM-8PM
Preview THE PROMISE by artist Chris Panatier at WALL Gallery in the Dallas Design District. Utilizing rich bright oils and abstract layers, Panatier creates gracefl movement with color on canvas and palate knife. Motivated by music, the artists artistic flow is characterized by the variability of his series and remarkable depth of which he says comes about through an intense painting process. Chris revisits a bold technique in his latest body of work THE PROMISE on exhibition at WALL Gallery through June 13, 2015. Join us for an evening of art and conversation at WALL on Dragon.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Chris views music as the fuel for everything he does. He doesn’t think of it as ambient noise or light-hearted entertainment, but rather as an essential element of life. Chris credits his love of music (especially extreme metal) for bringing his art to where it is today. As his passion for music deepened over the last five years or so, so did Chris’s commitment to forcing himself to broaden his imagination, creativity and technical skill. The effort put forth by some of Chris’s favorite bands stood as an example for him and where he would commit to take his art. Chris’s art occupies three distinct genres: heavy oil abstracts and figurative oil work that have been exhibited on many occasions and album art for metal bands in the U.S., U.K., Finland, Sweden, Portugal, Brazil, Italy and Denmark.
Chris is self taught but looks up to and is influenced by Michael Borremans, Jeremy Geddes, Jenny Saville, Linde Martin, JMW Turner and many more.
Chris’s latest series of abstract oil paintings entitled “The Promise” encompasses his attempt to fix emotion in visual form directly onto the canvas.
Chris was born in Bartlesville, Oklahoma and received his undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Texas at Austin. He has been a trial lawyer for fifteen years, a drummer for five years, retired from amateur rugby for three years and father to a cherub for one year.

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.
Join us for a reception at Slant on Saturday, February 15, 6-10 pm, during the Midtown Artwalk (at 13331 Preston Rd, inside Valley View Mall at Preston/LBJ). http://slantx.weebly.com

Marshall-McPhail Gallery will hold an Artist Reception for Darla Bostick on February 8, 2014, 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Darla Bostick is the featured artist of a one-woman show hosted by the Marshall-McPhail Gallery in North Dallas from January 1 through March 31, 2014.
The opening reception with the Denton-based artist in attendance will be held February 8, 2014 from 2-6 PM. The public is invited to this free wine and cheese reception.
Darla uses her camera as a sketchbook when traveling to capture the colors of a region, its architecture, unique landscapes and the daily life of people. She has traveled to 53 countries at last count. She is a Denton, Texas resident and her love of travel is evidenced primarily in her photographic images which later inspire collages, watercolor, acrylic, and mixed media paintings.
Her motto is “Art is Life!” Her hope is to touch the viewer through her images and show the world as she sees it.
She is president of the Society of Watercolor Artists in Fort Worth. She teaches weekly watercolor classes at Hobby Lobby in Denton. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Texas Tech University and has been involved in the arts since that time as an art educator in Iowa, Arizona, New Mexico, Missouri and Texas.
Darla is active as a painter, photographer and demonstration artist for several art associations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Recognized as a painter/educator, she has also judged art venues. In 2008 Darla began what has become an annual event: a week-long workshop/retreat at Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, NM. This workshop/retreat combines photography, watercolor and mixed medias and has attracted artists from coast to coast. Besides workshops in Texas and New Mexico, she has taught workshops in Sedona, Arizona and Branson, Missouri.
Darla can be contacted at 940-320-5660 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also visit her on the web at: www.darlabostick.com.
