ART214 Gallery reception at the Bath House Cultural Center on April 8

Exhibition Dates: March 24-April 21, 2018
Reception: Sunday, April 8, 2018 (5-7 PM)

As part of Dallas Arts Month, four cultural centers of the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs (OCA) are hosting a multi-venue juried exhibition to showcase the works of artists who live and work in Dallas and the Greater North Texas region from late March to early June.

Through this exhibition, OCA hopes to discover and develop relationships with new artists, provide opportunities for artists to exhibit their work for the first time ever or for the first time in one of our cultural centers, and cross pollinate artists who have previously exhibited at one cultural center by exhibiting their work at a different center. Another goal of this collaborative project is to draw in new audiences who have never been to (or even heard of) our Cultural Centers and to share audiences who frequent a specific center but have never experienced the others.

Kettle Art proudly presents “Belladonnas”, a women’s collective exhibit showcasing the talent of local and diverse Dallas artists who exhibit strength, grace, and optimism in the community. In celebration of National Women’s History Month, this exhibit exemplifies the persistence, acceptance, and beauty of being a woman.

Opening Reception, Thursday, March 1st from 6:00pm – 9:00pm.

This exhibit runs through Sunday, April 8th.
A special sneak peek begins Thursday, February 22nd at 6:00pm.

ARTIST HIGHLIGHTS:

ERIN CURRY displays the underlying beauty and marvelousness of the world.

MINJI KANG-WATROUS shares her customary Korean influences, highlighting the beauty in her culture.

DANI KENT depicts images of femininity, resilience, and growth.

JAMIE WALTERS provides hope and gratitude for a woman’s journey through life.

ARTIST STATEMENTS:

ERIN CURRY: “Starting off as a biologist, I knew my affinity for the natural world was something I needed to pursue. While working for the Dallas Zoo, I discovered that I was to be a biologist turned artist. I picked up drawing about 4 years ago, and now I am showing my work all over the country.

Using NanoLiner ink pens, I draw my unique cubist characters onto handmade wood panels as well as Bristol media paper, which I then elevate into shadowboxes. The subject matter is inspired not only by my biology background, but for my love of anything oddly beautiful. I want my work to inspire and bring attention to the underlying beauty and marvelousness of the world around us!”

MINJI KANG-WATROUS: Minji is a Korean-born artist, currently living in the Dallas area. She is a self-taught artist who has been creating art for the last 15 years. Her work is a modern take on the traditional arts that have been passed down from her mother, who is an established Korean artist. Minji incorporates hanji (traditional Korean paper), as well as multimedia elements in her works, focusing on nature. From series to series, her works evolve. Previous works include a juxtaposition of nature to architecture, and the beauty of nature with contrast in finish.

For years, Minji has created art to assist and raise funds for numerous art auctions and fundraisers. Her work is known throughout the Dallas art community by her signature detailed floral, geometric, and abstract designs on board. The simplicity of her compositions inevitably draws the viewer closer for a more appreciated visual balance, which she perfects through depth and perspective.

DANI KENT: Dani Kent specializes in realistic, yet whimsical, watercolor paintings. She is a practicing artist and local art educator, born and raised in DFW. Her artwork depicts images of femininity, resilience, and growth arising from the exploration of those themes in her life and in the lives of those around her.

It is through her love of family, and in the service of education, that her art is shaped. Her work investigates themes of motherhood, and the dichotomy of femininity. There is a pervasive wonder in Dani’s watercolor paintings as she investigates the play between the subtleties of building gradual color fields to bold contrasting values. She exhibits a love for the fluidity of her medium to achieve a steadiness between hard and soft. Conceptually, her work focuses on the contrast and struggle between tough and gentle, resilience and beauty, and a womanly balance between power and grace.

JAMIE WALTERS: Jamie’s work represents the bright, beautiful light at the end of the tunnel. If you’re struggling through life, the vibrant colors give you hope. If you’re “living in the light,” the art is a daily reminder of gratitude.

The striking colors, flow of the brush, and elegant use of the pallet knife make Jamie’s work unique. Her signature style completes each piece with a resin technique.

“The most exhilarating feeling is finding a piece of art you connect with and love. It might not be the largest and most pristine piece in the show, but you have an undeniable connection to it.”

El Corazón exhibition opens Feb. 3 at the Bath House

Curated by Jose Vargas

Exhibition Dates: February 3-March 17, 2018

Reception: Saturday, February 3, 2018 (7-9 PM)

Bath House Cultural Center


Featuring live music by Bnois King Band

El Corazón exhibition has been one of the most popular art events at the Bath House Cultural Center since the show was first presented in 1993. Every year, this Dallas exhibition presents over sixty regional, national and international artists with pieces that explore multiple interpretations of the human heart (El Corazón), an important and stimulating symbol in art.

The Bath House is celebrating the musical arts in 2018 by hosting a music festival (Lake-a-Palooza!) and unveiling two new music-themed mural paintings inside the building’s lake level later this year.  In line with the celebration, Jose Vargas, the Curator of the show, also suggested a theme of music for this year’s El Corazón exhibition.  He states that: “When it comes to combining the symbol of the heart and the concept of music, the possibilities are endless.”  Music, however, is not the only concept explored by the participating artists, making this show as diverse and engaging as it has always been.

The exhibition features art by Andres Aceves, Mirtha Aertker, Pablo Azar, Rita Barnard, Jessica Bell, Kimberly Bradshaw Meadows, Kristina Carbrey, Sara Cardona, Kim Carothers, Andrea Cook, Sharon Covington, Mariana De Yta , Jenna Deslaurier, Glenn Downing, Martha Francis, Charlene Goldman, Brandy González, Rebecca Guy, Justin Higgs, Jessica Hills, Chad Hines, Marcela Kourkova, MaryEllen Lacy, Cindy Lemmon, M3AT, Jackie MacLelland, Marian Maldonado-Pagán, Samuel Chuck McCarter, Sarah McDaniel , Margo Miller, Yamel Molerio, Karla Mora Mora, Crystal Murley, Sharon O’Callaghan Shero, Caroline Ometz, Julie Pearson, Maia Pizarro, Michelle Purvis, Christopher Rahmeh, Ann Ranson, Ellen Ray, Gail Roberts, Rene Rocha, Lesley Rucker, Joe Sarate, Teresa Shields, Mary Southall, Pam Stern, Christine Stoddard, Wendy Tigchelaar, Mary Ann Turner, Jose Vargas, Lisa Vollrath, Joan Wheeler, ME Wilcox, Lorena Williams, and Kelly Witte.

About the Curator: Leon Robertson is a self-taught artist that works with primarily pen and ink illustration. He has explored mixed media using found objects to create a series titled, The Junkyard Birds. Because so much of his art is inspired by the use of language, stories often unfold with his art. It is the reason why he prefers to work in an open-series format. His work has been exhibited in local shows and galleries. Several of the characters from his ARF & Soul Dog series were published in the book, 1000 Dog Portraits: From the People Who Love Them. Leon’s passion for art, design and all things creative was demonstrated in nearly two decades of working in the fashion and home luxury retail markets.

A Present Abstract opens Nov. 18 at CYDONIA

FORT WORTH – CYDONIA is pleased to announce A Present Abstract, an exhibition of drawing, sculpture, and photography by Niall McClelland, Jade Rude, Jon Sasaki, Derek Sullivan, and Jim Verburg.

Curated by writer and curator Alex Bowron, the exhibition opens on Saturday, November 18, 2017 and runs until Saturday, December 16, 2017A reception honoring the curator will take place at 909 Currie Street in the Fort Worth Cultural District on Saturday November 18, starting at 6 until 8 in the evening.

Flyer: Illustrated Press Release _ A Present Abstract

A Present Abstract features two works by each artist that originate from the same or a related series. Works act as points of study within the artists’ greater practice that employ abstraction as a tool for reconciling contemporary art’s relationship with the past. By addressing the legacy of art-historical abstraction and its continued influence on art-production today, these artists create new and aptly self-assured forms of abstract representation. The works display a convergence between representation and abstraction that operate between perception and the physical object.

Níall McClelland’s practice has long involved unpredictable and unconventional approaches to reproduction. With his latest ink-on-paper drawings, McClelland methodically crops, enlarges, and simplifies self-sourced imagery themed around machismo, the genius and hero figures, utopia, and their inevitable collapse. Although removed from their original context and transformed into contemporary, benign versions of historical Op Art, the imagery maintains the aura of its original source. In these works, the line between cool and cringe-worthy is blurred, the anti-climax is fetishized, and the apocalypse is romanticized.

 

Other works explore the relationship between reality and representation though challenging the space between the pictorial, the illusionistic, and the actual. Jade Rude uses perception-shifting tactics to explore formal elements of space and form. Her two works Dürer Solid, Form and Flat and Dürer Solid Unfolded and Flattened are formalist explorations of the ‘Dürer Solid,’ which was modeled after the truncated rhombohedron depicted in the iconic engraving Melencolia I (1514) by Albrecht Dürer. Rude’s work destabilizes the viewer’s perception of two and three- dimensionality.

Jon Sasaki’s series of charcoal rubbings are crude reproductions of famous works on paper. By employing a method of transfer meant for obtaining surface detail to a one-dimensional piece, Sasaki performs both an homage and an erasure of the original. The resulting monochromatic charcoal squares contain nuances that are mostly the result of Sasaki’s hand and maintain a precarious connection to the content and concept of the original works.

In his Mirror Drawing series, Derek Sullivan probes the reflective surface of a standard everyday bathroom mirror. Resulting drawings are both abstract and representational at once, capturing the optical effects of reflected light and shadow through a technique that prioritizes pattern and surface. Sullivan’s multi-disciplinary practice combines the visual aesthetic of modernist design and geometric abstraction with the forms and strategies of conceptual art to create a cacophony of messages and inter-work refractions.

Jim Verburg represents light and shadow through a complex and emotional approach to minimalism. His works both echo and reimagine the historical canon of abstract expressionism, presenting delicate portraits of depth, focus, and texture that emit infinitely subtle visual noise. By mimicking the characteristics of reflection, absorption, opacity, and translucence, Verburg treats light as both material and subject, in order to push the boundaries of the physical by prioritizing the intangibilities of form.

A Present Abstract encourages viewers identify with the characteristics of contemporary abstraction. Each artist employs abstraction as part of their conceptual framework as well as their formal approach. In these infinitely nuanced works, viewers witness the juxtaposition between the pure pleasure of looking and a habitual self- reflexivity that is often present in contemporary art. What was once a revolutionary turn of events in the history of art has become a normalized formal technique of artistic expression. Viewers have long understood and accepted abstract art as ‘Art.’ As such, contemporary artists employing abstraction today must do what contemporary artists do best: grapple with their inheritance through acts of apotheosis, appropriation, reconfiguration, and disregard.

Alex Bowron is an art-writer and curator based in Toronto. She holds an MA in Critical Cultural Theory from the University of Leeds, UK and a BFA in Sculpture/Installation from OCAD University. Bowron’s writing has appeared in publications, galleries, and artist projects in Canada and abroad. She is Manager of Operations at MKG127 and current acting Coordinator for the Canadian Art Foundation’s annual fundraising auction.

Níall McClelland grew up in Toronto, spent many of his summers in Northern Ireland, and studied in Vancouver. His work has been published in Adbusters, Arkitip, Color, Design Anarchy, Hunter and Cook, I-Live-Here, Lowdown, Made, and The Walrus, among others. Recent exhibitions include In The Dark at Eleanor Harwood (San Francisco); Resurrection at Cinders Gallery (Brooklyn). The artist was also included along with Jeremy Jansen, Ellsworth Kelly and Richard Serra in the group show Black To Back And Light at CR in 2009. Níall McClelland is based in Toronto where he is represented by Clint Roenisch Gallery.

Jade Rude works in a variety of media including sculpture, installation, photography, and video. Her work addresses surface aesthetics and employs perception-shifting tactics to playfully examine the relationship between reality and representation. Rude has studied at the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary, the Norwich University of the Arts in Norwich, U.K., and the University of Oslo in Oslo, Norway. Recent exhibitions and projects include Unfixed at Zalucky Contemporary, Toronto, The Golden Solid at YYZ Artist’s Outlet, Toronto, Surface and Strategem at Division Gallery, Toronto, The Gaze, part of the 10 x 10 photography exhibition at the Gladstone Hotel, Toronto, W: at the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives, Toronto and Instant Messaging and Other Texts, a project for the Art Gallery of York University (AGYU) Vitrines, Toronto. In addition to exhibiting in Canada, Rude has also participated in group exhibitions in the US, England, Japan, Australia, Argentina, and Columbia. Her work appears in numerous public and private collections in Canada and beyond. Jade Rude is based in Toronto.

Jon Sasaki is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice includes performance, video, objects, and installation. He has had solo exhibitions at the Ottawa Art Gallery, the Southern Alberta Art Gallery, the Art Gallery of Ontario, as well as a 2015 performance project at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit. Sasaki has participated in recent group exhibitions at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, (Seoul, South Korea), Platform Art Spaces (Melbourne, Australia); Nihonbashi Institute of Contemporary Art, (Tokyo, Japan); and the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (Toronto). He has completed various recent public art commissions, and his video work has screened at numerous locations in Canada and abroad. He was the recipient of the 2015 Canadian Glenfiddich Artists in Residence Prize (Dufftown, Scotland.). He holds a BFA from Mount Allison University (Sackville, NB). Jon Sasaki is based in Toronto where he is represented by Clint Roenisch Gallery.

Derek Sullivan employs drawing, painting, sculpture, book works, and installation to question familiar forms and genres, often to examine the links between one discipline and the next. Sullivan holds a BFA from York University and an MFA from the University of Guelph. He has exhibited throughout Canada and internationally, including solo shows the Southern Alberta Art Gallery, the University of Waterloo Art Gallery, Optica, Mercer Union, Kiosk, White Columns, and Librairie Florence Loewy. In 2012, Sullivan was shortlisted for the Sobey Art Award. Derek Sullivan is based in Toronto and is represented by Galerie Antoine Ertaskiran in Montreal, Galerie Emmanuel Hervé in Paris, Susan Hobbes Gallery in Toronto, and Galerie Tatjana Pieters in Ghent.

Jim Verburg’s practice stems from photography and is inspired by the subtle, nuanced, and fleeting affects of light. Solo exhibitions include Afterimage at Galerie Nicolas Robert, Montréal (2014), What is Missing / What is Seen for widmertheodoridis, Zurich at VOLTA NY, New York City (2015), Light Becomes Form, The Horizon Rests Into View at Texas Contemporary, Houston (2015), and Impermanent Horizon at Galerie Nicolas Robert, Montréal (2016). Recent projects include a public art installation for the city of Ottawa, a choreographed work for the Toronto Dance Theatre, a book project with Fw: Photography in Amsterdam; group exhibition For you / And me at Paul Kuhn Gallery (Calgary), and solo projects at Zalucky Contemporary (Toronto), and Rodman Hall Art Centre (Brock University, St Catharines Ontario).

Made for T.V. opens Nov. 2 at the Kettle

Made for T.V. – Opens Thursday, 11/ 2
“A group exhibition curated by Raymond Butler”

https://www.facebook.com/events/121672301856698

November 2 – November 18
Kettle Art

2650 Main St, Dallas, Texas 75226
Kettle Art is proud to host ‘”Made for TV” a group exhibition featuring the work of Christopher Machorro, Franco Fazio, Max Quest, and guest curator Raymond Butler. Together these artists explore pop culture, street art, cartoons, video games, etc. reflecting sentimental values from their personal perspectives.. All works use vibrant colors and playful imagery to entertain, challenge, and guide the viewer.

Made for T.V – About the Artists.

Christopher Machorro : I specialize in illustration with a background in Graphic Design and Street Art. My art style comes from a combination of Pop Surrealism, Graffiti, and Low Brow Art where I emphasize the combination of different colors as my focus when producing works. Some of my inspiration come from adult swim animations, pop culture, and music which influence the imagery produce.

Max Quest : I go by the name Max Quest, originally born in Mexico I grew up watching anime and Saturday morning cartoons on Cartoon Network. What stood out to me the most about those shows were the bright vivid colors. No matter what the mood being fed by the images portrayed the colors mellowed the tone by masking it with this fun spectrum of color. Which sometimes hid in plain sight violence, tragedy, or sadness. These shows along with my passion for drawing inspired me to explore my interest in color. Today my work uses the same techniques to represent metaphors of my own personal experiences. It’s a way for me to cope with adulthood and make sense of the world around me. The images in my work spawn from graffiti, cartoons and pop culture.

Franco Fazio :As an artist, my work often represents a transition of states, and heavy juxtaposition as a mean of challenging and subverting the perceived merit of traditional imagery within art. My work pulls heavily, and sometimes directly from ideas associated with pop-culture and street art. I often try to sample small aspects of established works within fine art and submerge them into heavily pop-culture influenced pieces as a means of asking questions; namely, is the incorporation of a pre-established and successful work cheapened in a contemporary context? And are the two worlds mutually exclusive? I like to think that the contrast of imagery and different cultural contexts persuades viewers to analyze the contrasting elements as a cohesive idea. Another consistency in my work is the implementation of vague and abstracted figures, often intertwined by a gloved hand attached to a seemingly endless arm. I use this as a physical representation of my love of pop-culture and its hold on me, and what I believe to be its hold on society to a greater extent. The reach of pop-culture is powerful, and I think it’s often discredited. Whether viewed as cynical or endearing, It’s my perspective that contemporary artists should be encouraged to borrow and recycle ideas from established work in an effort to shift preconceived perceptions of originality—allowing for alternative methods to describe the work in a new context, this redefines the appropriated imagery and allows for the juxtaposition of elements to suggest new meaning in ideas.

Raymond Butler: I’m a Dallas based artist and curator. Currently, I am the Gallery Director of the H. Paxton Moore Gallery at El Centro College. In the past, my work has consisted of painting, drawing, sculpture, and collage. My most recent work revolves around my experiences growing up in a rough part of Dallas in the ’90s. There weren’t a lot of children in my neighborhood to play with, so I spent a lot of time watching television, eating sandwiches, drawing and hanging out with family.

The Importance of Sandwiches and Cartoon houses:
It seems like a random thing to mention in the grand scheme of my childhood, but I found creative inspiration in the remembrance of sandwiches, the food of champions for most kids growing up poor in America. For some time, I’ve been creating handmade wooden versions of sandwiches I call “Sammys.” They are a nostalgic, tongue-in-cheek representation of the ups and downs of my upbringing. They are all different in some ways; anthropomorphised cartoonishly, sometimes missing details of what one might expect to be on a sandwich. This could be interpreted a number of ways, but I’m focusing on how the contents of the sandwiches depended on the availability of resources from my childhood.

Like the cartoons I adored so much, these pieces are not only an expression of the time and environment of my youth but also an escape: the Sammys make absurdly funny faces, almost in reaction to those cartoons, which in turn offered humor, violence, and endless entertainment away from the realities of my world. But it wasn’t all doom and gloom. Buried within the systemic and social otherization experienced, was a sense of community, of belonging; we worked together and helped each other out despite our own personal barrier.

The End and The Beginning opens Sept. 2 at TWU East | West Galleries

The End and The Beginning

East | West Galleries, Texas Woman’s University, 9/2/17 – 10/15/17

Opening Reception, 9/2/17, 5-7pm

Curated by Danielle Avram, TWU Gallery Director

The End and The Beginning is part of an ongoing dialogue about the intersections of humanity, technology, spirituality, and the possibility of magic and mythos amidst chaos. This iteration explores the cyclicality of ecosystemic adaptations that derive from responding to continual shifts in physical, emotional, mental, and technological landscapes. At an ever-increasing rate our pasts and presents are written, forgotten, and rewritten in an effort to rectify who we have been and who we are, with who we should be, and what we could become. Yet who we are at any given point in time may simply be the result of adjusting to the aftermath of our predecessors – a point along a continual loop of creation and destruction, a point of no end and no beginning, or a point that is both the end and the beginning. Are we working towards something imperceptibly larger or merely evolving/devolving as dictated by circumstance?

Featuring work by Morehshin Allahyari, Martin Back, Sean Miller, and Jenny Vogel.

EIGHT: Curated by Art Room opens Sept. 9

Artwork:
Tiger Hunting in Korea, Oil on panel, 16 x 20 inches, 2016

“EIGHT” 
On exhibit September 9 – 27, 2017 
With reception from 6 – 9 pm on Saturday, September 9th

Exhibited at the
Fort Worth Community Arts Center
1300 Gendy St
Fort Worth, TX 76107

http://fwcac.com


Art Room is pleased to announce its upcoming group exhibition “EIGHT” in conjunction with the Fort Worth Art Dealer’s Association’s Fall Gallery Night 2017. Exhibited at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, “EIGHT” represents the work of local, regional, and national artists, including Charis Ammon, Lauren Hana Chai, Alicia Eggert, Nathaniel Evans, Mariell Guzman, Jessica McClendon, and Melissa Mohammadi.

The artists featured in “EIGHT” transform their blank canvases – whether that be linen, paper, yupo, or the landscape – into rhythmic, gestural works that express a curiosity of self, time, and place. Through a narrative exploration of the personification of inanimate objects, Charis Ammon’s paintings consider the way in which borders and portals affect proprietorship. Her window blinds, fences, and walls bring about questions regarding one’s relationship with the “inside and outside world.” Lauren Hana Chai creates work using unconventional methodologies that include mixed media and oil on a variety of matrixes that reference her multicultural Eastern / Western upbringing. Her work reflects her own identity, as well as addresses taboo, feminism, sexuality, violation, and oppression. While using time and language as artistic materials, Alicia Eggert investigates the notion of absence and presence through an exploration of cycles, time, and weather. Her work questions the way one understands the past, present, and future in combination with the way one relates her or himself to time and experience.

“EIGHT” will run through September 27, 2017, at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center. Gallery hours are MondayFriday, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm. For additional information please contact Nathan Madrid, Katie Murray, or Deedra Baker at artroomfw@gmail.com, and visit our website www.artroom.space for more information about upcoming shows and to join our mailing list. An exhibition catalog will be available for purchase.
