2018 Celebrating Irving: A View from My Window – Reception & Geocaching Kickoff April 15

In conjunction with the Irving Heritage Society‘s Celebrating Irving event, Irving Art Association is again hosting exhibits at the Jaycee Park Center for the Arts and the West Irving Library. The title of this year’s exhibit is “A View from My Window”.

For this exhibit we encouraged the community to create artwork depicting scenes or activities from this region of the country similar to the type of work created by Regionalist artist Grant Wood. We are happy to announce that more than 100 artists have contributed work for the exhibits this year, including 81 children through the IPAR recreation centers. See the Brochure for a list of artists, volunteers, sponsors and activities: IAA2018CelebrateIrvingExhibitBrochure

The artwork will hang in galleries at the Jaycee Park Center for the Arts from April 1 – April 27 and at the West Irving Library from March 25 – May 27.

The Artist Reception and Geocaching Kickoff will be on Sunday, April 15 at 2-4 pm. Everyone is invited!

The program will include certificates for everyone who participated, snacks, photo opportunities, and a family art activities table. Our local “Grant Wood” will present certificates (not the real Grant Wood but his artistic surrogate.) The Boy Scouts will also explain how to participate in the Celebrating Irving Geocaching activity.

Exhibit Locations:
Jaycee Park Center for the Arts, 1975 Puritan, Irving TX 75061
. Exhibit dates: April 1 – 27 
Reception, Sun. Apr. 15 2-4pm

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.

Rising Star Exhibition & Fundraiser presented by the Oak Cliff Society of Fine Arts Sept. 16 & 17

THE OAK CLIFF SOCIETY OF FINE ARTS – TURNER HOUSE ANNOUNCES 5th ANNUAL “RISING STAR” EXHIBITION & FUNDRAISER

Event Will Showcase Emerging Artists Nominated by Top Dallas Galleries

 

DALLAS – July 17, 2017 The Oak Cliff Society of Fine Arts – Turner House will present its fifth “Rising Star” exhibition and fundraiser September 16 and 17 at the historic Oak Cliff home. Several prestigious Dallas galleries have each nominated one emerging Texas artist who is not yet represented by a gallery to be in the group show.

 

A fundraiser reception will be held Saturday, September 16 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. and will feature speaker Katherine Wagner, Business Council for the Arts. Ticket prices are $85 per person ($50 for Oak Cliff Society of Fine Arts members.) Sponsorships are available and tickets may be purchased at the door. A public reception will be Sunday, September 17 from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. at Turner House, 401 N. Rosemont, Dallas, 75208.

 

According to artist Kenda North, co-chair of the event, the 100-year-old Turner House has a long history of showcasing Texas artists.  “Rising Star is an effort to continue that tradition and draw attention to some exciting new artists who are just beginning to gain attention in the art community, including such past Rising Stars as Diana Antohe, Spencer Evans, and Shawn Samuell,” she said.

 

Turner House has been hosting art exhibits for more than 100 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.

100+ MILLION MISSING Traveling Art Exhibit

gendercideexhibit

11,000 Pairs of Handmade Baby Booties Go on Display in Dallas to Launch 100+ MILLION MISSING Traveling Art Exhibit

Exhibit features baby booties handmade by at-risk women in 30 developing countries 

100+ MILLION MISSING is a traveling art exhibit to raise awareness of gendercide and to combat the extreme devaluation of women that leads to gendercide. The exhibit will feature 11,000 pairs of handmade baby booties, each pair representing 10,000 “missing” women and girls due to gendercide. Demographic scholars estimate 100 million to 125 million females are missing in the world today. The booties are the work of 500 women from women’s cooperatives in 30 developing countries. Many of the cooperatives were formed by nonprofits to help vulnerable women by providing them fair pay for work. The women used their income from making the baby booties to buy better food, medical care and schooling for their children. Dallas area high school students and knitting groups also contributed.  

An “Artists Respond” section will highlight artwork produced by professional, gallery-exhibited artists from Dallas-Fort Worth and the international community, including gendercide-affected countries. Gendap.org requested the artists to offer their personal responses to gendercide and to the baby bootie installation.  

See photos and a walk-through video.

OUR PURPOSE:

The United Nations Population Fund estimates that currently 100-125 million women and girls are missing in the world due to sex-selective abortions, female infanticide, gross neglect of girls, preventable maternal death, and lack of food and shelter for older women.

The Gendercide Awareness Project began in early 2011 when founder Beverly Hill of Dallas, Texas, recruited a team of volunteers to raise awareness about the little-known problem of gendercide. From 2011 to 2016 the Gendercide Awareness Project, a Dallas-based 501(c)3 charity focused on preventing gendercide, has educated the public while raising funds to purchase 11,000 pairs of baby booties. The organization focuses on two initiatives:

  1. For Women:  To provide modest financial support to at-risk women by commissioning baby booties from women’s cooperatives overseas, paying fair prices. To date, that income has allowed the women to provide 4,000 nourishing family meals — roughly 20,000 substantial individual meals.
  2. For Girls: To send at-risk girls to school in developing countries by supporting five schools for girls (or scholarship programs for girls) in Cambodia, Nepal, India, Uganda, and Guatemala. Each girl receives instruction, room, board (3 meals per day), health care, uniforms, and school supplies. 

Educating at-risk girls and empowering women with fair pay for work is critical to ending gendercide

These 15 active artists have ties to and have collaborated with other artist groups such as Art Conspiracy, aphophenia underground, Deep Ellum Windows, Gallery Project in Detroit, Hatch Show Print, Performance SW, Oil and Cotton, and Wild Pony Editions, to name a few. They work in the community as educators, coaches, professionals, and mentors across the DFW area. They work and are involved with institutions such as UNT, Brookhaven College, UTA, Collin College, TCU, Dallas Public Library, and the Modern Art Museum of Forth Worth.

As the oldest artist run co-op in Texas, the idea of collaboration, finding fresh talent and building community is what this current group hopes to continue to foster. Come out and help us kick off the 2016 season!

Non Pixelated opens July 2 at the Bath House

Non Pixelated: The Persistence of Painting in the Digital Age

 

 July 2-30, 2016

 Reception with the Artists: Saturday, July 2, 2016 (7-9 PM)

Featuring the work of eighteen DFW painters, the Non Pixelated exhibition explores the unceasing relevance of the traditional medium of painting in the context of our contemporary digital age. The exhibition includes the work of artists who, for the most part, have chosen not to shift completely from their use of analogue painting techniques to the more widely accessible mass digital media.

Unlike other exhibitions where the art pieces adhere to a certain theme or stylistic direction, the Non Pixelated show focuses mainly on presenting a collection of highly imaginative artwork that serves as irrefutable evidence that painting remains an enduring, vibrant, and ever-present form of art in a world that seems to be inundated and enthralled by digital imagery. The art pieces in this exhibition make a determined and resounding statement that the contribution of painting to the world of art continues to be, and will continue to be for a long time to come, of utmost prominence.

Non Pixelated includes paintings by Rita Barnard, Sarah Barnett, Awadh Baryoum, Bernard Bortnick, S. Chuck McCarter, Justin Clumpner, Ray-Mel Cornelius, Steve Danner, Jacque Forsher, Gale Gibbs, Duke Horn, Karen Jacobi, Darrell Madis, Alexa Mason, Julia McLain, Ruben Miranda, Monica Moody, and Madelyn Sneed.

The exhibition was curated by Enrique Fernández Cervantes.

Natural Impressions: Recent Artwork by Cecilia Thurman
cecekuathurman

Cecilia Thurman

Through October 1, 2016

Meet the Artist: Saturday, July 2, 2016(7-9 PM)

The White Rock Lake Museum, housed inside the Bath House Cultural Center, presents Natural Impressions, an exhibition of recent paintings by Cecilia Thurman.

Cecilia Thurman is a painter and a printmaker who lives in Dallas, near White Rock Lake. The acrylic on paper paintings featured in the Natural Impressions exhibition are the artist’s most recent body of work. The new series refers to Cecilia’s tremendous and abiding love of nature, which is unquestionably a constant theme that can be seen in many of her prints and paintings. The goal of the imagery, according to the artist, is to evoke the feeling of elements found in nature, and to express the poetry and mystery of the land that we all share.

Visit Cecilia’s website at www.ceciliathurman.blogspot.com
