ABOUT THE JUROR

Augie N’Kele, a U.S. citizen since 1995, was born in Kisangani, Democratic Republic of Congo, Africa in 1953. His first exhibition was in Texas 1992.

A recommendation from the Dallas Museum of Art led to a PBS special, Art Journeys Gallery: Out of Africa into America, produced by the Art Museum of South Texas at Corpus Christi in 1997. The program was syndicated nationally on PBS stations and broadcast to schools via Satellite in the Classroom.

In 2003, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri invited N’Kele to lecture in conjunction with their exhibition, Art of the Lega: Meaning and Metaphor in Central Africa.

N’Kele has exhibited throughout Texas, Tennessee, North Carolina, Iowa, Nevada, Oklahoma and the country of Norway. He has also conducted artist residencies, working with students from kindergarten through college in Irving, Dallas, Southlake and Fort Worth. His most recent Residency was at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History.

Ithaca University in New York included N’Kele on a list of 20th century African Americans who have made important contributions to the humanities for Forgotten Heritage, a series of sculptures with a historical theme.

Other honors and awards include:
Leadership Award, Texas Association of Black Personnel in Higher Education, in recognition of outstanding accomplishments and contributions in art

GREAT CAUSE AND WONDERFUL ARTIST

John Egeland

Medium: Acrylic on canvas                                Size: 16″ x 20″

Price: $2,000

The Guild is proud to assist John Egeland, one of its members, in a project we all feel is very worthy. John is a strong advocate of the homeless population in the Dallas area and donates much of his time to the cause. In addition, as part of our fall show Creme de la Creme, John is donating all profits from the sale of his beautiful painting, “Forsaken”, to the Dallas Life Foundation.

The story of Dallas LIFE starts with a man named Reverend Robert J. Key, one of the founders of the Union Gospel Mission in 1949. With Dallas’ homeless population growing in the post war years, Reverend Key left UGM to begin establishing the Dallas Rescue Mission. It was this endeavor that would become Dallas LIFE, now the largest homeless shelter in North Texas.
Dallas Rescue Mission opened its doors in 1954 in a small storefront location on Commerce Street. There, Rev. Key would minister to the men who came to him nightly for shelter and a hot meal. Rev. Key and his volunteers kept the shelter open every night for the next 25 years.

Please keep in mind that 3.5 million people in the US will be homeless this year. One third of those will suffer from chronic mental illness and 1.4 million will be children. These are staggering numbers that we should all want to see decrease rapidly. They need our help and we should all do our part to end the struggle for at least some of these.

Will you please help John, and more importantly the homeless community, by purchasing this beautiful work of art.

You can go visit our Creme de la Creme show and see this wonderful piece of art at the Frisco Discovery Center during normal business hours.

500X is ready to kick off the new season with the annual members show. Welcoming the addition of it’s newest members, this group of emerging DFW artists will be showcasing a range of traditional and contemporary art. Works ranging from photography, printmaking, textile, installation, painting, video, performance, and conceptual works investigate a variety of content and formal concerns.

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!
