Opening Reception:  Saturday, January 14, 5-8 pm
Haley-Henman Gallery
422 Singleton Boulevard, Dallas, Texas 75212 

A conversation with some of the Group Nine members will be held at 7 pm during the opening reception

DALLAS, Texas (December 12, 2016)–Haley-Henman Gallery proudly announces the exhibition of collaborative works by Group Nine, a group of nine artists who have been working in monthly studio sessions of interdependent creativity.  The opening reception on Saturday, January 12, from 5-8 pm will feature an artist conversation at 7 pm. The event is free and open to the public.

Their collaboration formed out of informal networking sessions among friends in 1995.  They mounted their first exhibition, Group Nine:  Power in Collaboration, at the California State University, Northridge, in 1998, and since then, have consistently exhibited their works. Haley-Henman welcomes the opportunity to begin 2017 with an exhibition that spans the years of collaborative work from 1998 to 2007.

Karen Schifman, writing in January 2014 (Southern California Women’s Caucus for Art eNews) says, “Collaboration and community have played a significant role in feminist art practices since its beginnings. An outstanding example is Group Nine…women artists who literally painted together for more than 20 years…Their postmodern model of art challenges notions of authorship as well as the idea of a single artist working in a private workspace.”

Although each artist continues their individual practice of art which is distinctive, with no commonality to each others’ work, when they come together to collaborate, they do so by abandoning the ego of ownership and control, and begin the egalitarian process of negotiation and consensus as the work starts and evolves.  The social experience of creating together gave then a liberated feeling to go beyond their individual parameters of expression.
