From Venice to Spain, from Titian to Velázquez, the definition of the painterly brushwork uses a vocabulary of failure related to the idea of stain-a formless area of color that soils or conceals the surface underneath.

http://www.meadowsmuseumdallas.org/about_Ribera_Drawings.htm

47 of Ribera’s drawings (nearly a third of the artist’s surviving output), 12 prints, 11 paintings, and one relief sculpture will be on display, demonstrating the technical skill and extraordinary originality of this Golden Age master. Co-organized with the Museo Nacional del Prado, the exhibition marks the publication of the first catalogue raisonné of the artist’s drawings, published jointly by the Meadows Museum, the Museo Nacional del Prado, and Fundación Focus. The Meadows Museum is the only U.S. venue for this exhibition.

Meadows Lecture Series: Reflecting on Ribera: Art and Culture in Spain and Spanish Naples, 1600-1700

LUIS MARTÍN LECTURE SERIES IN THE HUMANITIES

Reflecting on Ribera:
Art and Culture in Spain and Spanish Naples, 1600-1700
Four Fridays, February 3 – March 3, 10:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Adam Jasienski, assistant professor of art history, SMU

This lecture series investigates the world and work of Spanish-born artist Jusepe de Ribera (1591-1652), the subject of the forthcoming exhibition  Between Heaven and Hell: The Drawings of Jusepe de Ribera

meadowslectureseries2(opening March 12). A careful analysis of specific artworks by Ribera and his contemporaries will situate the artist within the broader context of the global Iberian empire, in which his chosen hometown of Naples played an integral role. Some of the themes examined will include Ribera’s confrontation with the legacies of Caravaggio and Domenichino, his penchant for violent scenes of martyrdom and suffering, the appeal of his stark realism, and his creation of images that were both effective religious objects and cutting-edge contemporary artworks. Coffee and pastries served in the Founders Room before each lecture at 10 a.m.

 

Advance registration required. $50 for the 4-part series; free for Museum members, SMU staff, faculty and students. To register, please call 214.768.8587.

Sedrick Huckaby named 2016 Moss/Chumley North Texas Artist Award Winner

SedrickHuckabyMossChumley

MEADOWS MUSEUM ANNOUNCES

2016 MOSS/CHUMLEY ARTIST AWARD WINNER SEDRICK HUCKABY

Dallas, TX—January 20, 2017—The Meadows Museum at SMU announces that Sedrick Huckaby has won the 2016 Moss/Chumley North Texas Artist Award. The award is given annually to an outstanding North Texas artist who has exhibited professionally for at least ten years and has established a proven track record as a community advocate for the visual arts. Huckaby received the award last night at a private reception held at the Museum; his portrait Rising, Sonny, Son (2014) will be on view at the Museum through February 12.

“Huckaby is both interpreter and innovator. His portraits reveal a deep knowledge of a centuries-old painting tradition that, through depicting his own reality, Huckaby has made into an art that is truly authentic to him,“ said Nicole Atzbach, Meadows Museum curator and chair of the jury panel.

SedrickHuckabyMossChumley2

This year’s Moss/Chumley Award winner is a Fort Worth native known for large-scale paintings incorporating a thick, impasto technique. Drawing inspiration from his African-American roots, his subject matter has shifted over the years from paintings of traditional quilts to insightful portraits of himself, family and friends. His latest work, incorporating mixed media, delves into the subject of incarceration. His self-portrait Sedrick, Sed, Daddy (2014) was a finalist in the distinguished 2016 Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition at the National Portrait Gallery, in Washington, DC, and featured in the competition’s resulting exhibition The Outwin 2016: American Portraiture Today. Huckaby’s recent solo exhibitions include Sedrick Huckaby, Valley House Gallery & Sculpture Garden, Dallas, Texas (2016); Sedrick Huckaby: The 99%, UNT ArtSpace Dallas, University of North Texas, Dallas, Texas (2015); and Just A Few Patches, Walton Art Center, Fayetteville, Arkansas (2014). He has exhibited at art fairs in Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Cleveland and Chicago. His work can be found in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, Minneapolis Institute of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among others.

Jury member Joan Davidow, director emerita of the Dallas Contemporary, commented, “I’ve watched his work mature in the years since his solo show as part of our Mix! Series. Those early patchwork quilt paintings were luscious! The work was personal, energetic and fresh…and I learned he was a lovely human being to boot. He deserved to be seen.” David Leggett, another jury member, as well as the Meadows Museum’s membership manager and a practicing artist, said, “For me his work has a colorful warmth. It is not only beautiful (especially his quilts and the familiar legacy he paints with regard to quilts), but his latest work If Perhaps by Chance, I Find Myself Encaged (2016) seizes the social-political struggles and issues of today. His work may be autobiographical but it’s also relevant.”

The Moss/Chumley Award was founded to recognize not only talented artists living in North Texas, but also to acknowledge those who have proven track records as community advocates for the arts. Huckaby consistently works to cultivate and encourage young artists by leading workshops for high school and community college students, performing speaking engagements at local schools, and serving as a juror or judge at student art shows. His community involvement also extends to ACT-SO (Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics), The KEEN Group, Imagination Celebration, and the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center.

At the reception Huckaby remarked, “I am humbled to be the recipient of the Moss/Chumley award because it is an award that is not just based on the merit of the work, but also on the merit of the person.”

Sedrick Huckaby obtained a bachelor of fine arts degree from Boston University and a master of fine arts degree from Yale University. Upon graduation, Huckaby was the recipient of numerous awards and honors. With funds from the Alice Kimball English Traveling Fellowship, Huckaby was able to travel the U.S. and abroad studying the works of Henry Tanner. Huckaby returned from European travels in 2001, and after settling back into his home town of Fort Worth, he began to work and teach there. Winner of a Guggenheim Fellowship and a Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant, he is presently assistant professor of painting in the Art Department of the University of Texas at Arlington.

The jury for the 2016 Moss/Chumley award included Atzbach and Leggett as noted above; Danielle Avram, freelance arts writer and gallery director, Texas Woman’s University;  Joan Davidow, co-director, SITE131 and director emerita, Dallas Contemporary; Shelley DeMaria, curatorial assistant, Meadows Museum; Heyd Fontenot, artist and former director of Central Trak; and Annette Lawrence, 2015 winner of the Moss/Chumley Award and professor and chair of studio art, University of North Texas.

Moss/Chumley Memorial Fund and Artist Award

The Moss/Chumley Memorial Fund was created in 1989 by Frank Moss and the Meadows Museum as a tribute to Jim Chumley; Moss’s name was added to the fund upon his death in 1991. Moss and Chumley were two Dallas art dealers who made outstanding contributions to the visual arts in North Texas during the 1980s. The pair operated the Nimbus Gallery on Routh Street from 1980 to 1987 and the Moss/Chumley Gallery at the Crescent Court from 1986 to 1989, where they showcased numerous new artists.

 

Established in 1995, the Moss/Chumley Artist Award is given in their memory.  The award—which carries a cash prize of $2,500—is open to artists working in any medium who live in one of the eleven North Texas counties: Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Hunt, Johnson, Kaufman, Parker, Rockwall, Tarrant and Wise.

Past recipients have included Isabelle duToit, Juliette McCullough, Catherine Chauvin, Kaleta Doolin, David Dreyer, Susan Kae Grant, David Hickman, Tracy Hicks, Stephen Lapthisophon, Darryl Lauster, David McCullough, Bob Nunn, Sherry Owens, Ludwig Schwarz, Noah Simblist, Janet Tyson, Marie Van Arsdale, Mary Vernon, Marilyn Waligore and Christopher Blay.

About the Meadows Museum

The Meadows Museum is the leading U.S. institution focused on the study and presentation of the art of Spain. In 1962, Dallas businessman and philanthropist Algur H. Meadows donated his private collection of Spanish paintings, as well as funds to start a museum, to Southern Methodist University. The Museum opened to the public in 1965, marking the first step in fulfilling Meadows’s vision to create “a small Prado for Texas.”

Today, the Meadows is home to one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of Spanish art outside of Spain. The collection spans from the 10th to the 21st centuries and includes medieval objects, Renaissance and Baroque sculptures, and major paintings by Golden Age and modern masters. Since 2010 the Museum has been engaged in a multidimensional partnership with the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid, which has included the exchange of scholarship, exhibitions, works of art and other resources.

A SURREAL EXPERIENCE

Visit the Museum Shop for Dalí-related merchandise, perfect for upcoming Mother’s Day, Graduation, and Father’s Day gifts!

CURRENT EXHIBITS

Salvador Dalí: An Early Surrealist Masterpiece
Through June 19
The 1930s were one of the most creatively fruitful decades of Salvador Dalí’s career. L’homme poisson (The Fish Man) shows both his tremendous imagination as well as his technical adroitness, and offers a revealing glimpse into the artist’s inner psyche. After an auspicious beginning as part of the first exhibition of surrealist works held in the U.S., in 1931, the painting has remained out of the public domain for much of its existence. This exhibition celebrates the Meadows’ acquisition of L’homme poisson-the first painting by Dalí to enter the collection of a Texas museum-and presents a renewed look at this early masterpiece within the artist’s oeuvre of surrealism. Learn More
This exhibition has been organized by the Meadows Museum, and is funded by a generous gift from The Meadows Foundation.

Between Paris and Texas: Marie Cronin, Portraitist of the Belle Époque
February 14 – June 5
Between Paris and Texas: Marie Cronin, Portraitist of the Belle Époque is the first monographic exhibition of Cronin’s (1867-1951) art and will feature a focused selection of her paintings, including works shown in the salons of Paris, as well as official portraits of Texas statesmen that hang at the Texas State Capitol, such as Alfonso Steele (1817-1911), the last survivor of the Battle of San Jacinto. A Texas-raised artist, Cronin studied with Claudio Castelucho (Spanish, 1870-1927) in Paris during the first decade of the twentieth century. Following her return from Europe, Cronin would continue her artistic career back in Texas while also carrying out the exigencies of a family in the business of expanding railroad operations across the state.

Process and Innovation: Carlotta Corpron and Janet Turner
February 14 – June 5
This exhibition will present the work of two pioneering artists working and teaching in Texas in the 1940s and 1950s, Carlotta Corpron (1901-1988) and Janet Turner (1914-1988). Corpron, working in photography, and Turner, working in painting and printmaking, both taught art education at Texas universities and came into their own maturity of style during the middle of the twentieth century. Process and Innovation: Carlotta Corpron and Janet Turner explores the work of both artists made during this period of consummate experimentation. This exhibition draws entirely from holdings within the Dallas area, including Bywaters Special Collections of SMU, which holds an impressive collection of art by both Turner and Corpron. Learn More

Alba Collection Symposium Dec. 4

Join us for a public symposium at the Meadows Museum that will bring together established and emerging scholars for discussion and debate on a selection of masterpieces from the collection of the Alba family.
The morning session will be devoted to three keynote lectures that will narrate a story of the life and afterlife of the Alba collection, and raise broader questions about parallel collections throughout Europe. The first lecture will examine the dispersal of the Alba collection in the nineteenth century, the second will investigate the political appropriation of the collection during the Spanish Civil War, and the third will address conservation issues pertaining to specific objects. The afternoon session will take place in the exhibition galleries, where eight speakers will present “object biographies,” unfolding the stories of individual works on view in the exhibition. A break for lunch will follow the morning session, and the symposium will close with a reception for attendees.
This symposium is co-organized by the Meadows Museum and the Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art History at The University of Texas at Dallas.
