You are invited to a presentation by encaustic artist Teri Muse at the Visual Arts Society of Texas’ (VAST), May meeting on May 4th, 2017, from 7 – 9 p.m., at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center, 400 East Hickory St, Denton. During the presentation, Teri Muse will look back at the variety of techniques and media that she has used over the years, ending with a discussion about her current choices of working with encaustic or acrylic/collage.
Teri Muse was born in 1956 in Waco, Texas. She received art lessons from a local artist and they sparked in her a lifelong passion for art. She received a BFA in art education in 1978 from the University of North Texas, Denton, Texas. In 1982, she received her MFA from Texas Woman’s University, Denton, Texas. Her Master’s degree major study was in papermaking and textiles, studying with Corky Stuckenbruck. Ceramics was her minor, studying with J. Brough Miller.
Her early art career centered on paper-making. She made her own paper canvases in various shapes. Working with Beverly Gordon Fine Art/Dallas, Nimbus Gallery/Dallas and Miriam Perlman/Chicago her work was commissioned for large public spaces, including the Westin Hotel/Birmingham, the American Heart Association/Dallas, and Prudential Life Insurance/Chicago.
As Muse settled with her family in the DFW area, she entered into a career of art education in the local private and public schools. This career has run parallel to her fine art career.
After a 2004 trip to Paris, France, Muse created a series of wood assemblages inspired by Picasso. Milled wood scraps from her husband’s wood shop and found driftwood pieces were combined into colorful, found object art guitars.
The search for ever more interesting color and texture led Muse to the encaustic technique of painting with melted wax. It creates unusual luminosity and translucency and allows Muse to include papers and materials into the layers of wax, something she also likes to do in her acrylic paintings. Her collections of maps, fabrics, sheet music and postage stamps become a backdrop for her “asemic”, or wordless, writing—linear elements running throughout her works for years and grounding them with the dual traits of strength and mystery. Muse continues to explore a variety of media to engage her creativity.

William Greiner & Nancy Lamb
Opening Reception | Thursday, December 8, 2016 | 5:00pm to 8:30pm
Exhibition on Display | December 8, 2016 – February 4, 2017
From the latest edition of 360 West: “Near & Far & Up & Down flips expectations by showing the paintings and mixed-media works of a well-known photographer alongside the photography of a well-known painter. New Fort Worth resident William Greiner’s photography has been seen in major museums from coast to coast; Fort Worth native Nancy Lamb’s bright paintings reveal a refreshingly off-kilter perspective on social events. See a new side of both in their joint exhibit.” Laura Samuel Meyn.

ANNA ELISE JOHNSON
NOVEMBER 19 – DECEMBER 31, 2016
Workings. An opening reception for the artist will be held at the gallery, Saturday, November 19th, from 5-8pm.
meetings to create small-scale, mise-en-scéne containing ambiguous, but striking narratives with characters
frozen in time. Delicate mists of spray paint, photography and India ink, suspended in a box of clear acrylic,
capture a chaotic stillness between figures that are defined by the void that their absence creates. It is unclear if these moments represent the past, present, or act as directive to the future political accounts. Both personal and broader social implications appear in Johnson ‘s work; here she examines the impact of our world leaders’ decisions and how one navigates this ambiguous and complex terrain.
Glassell School of Art in Houston, TX from 2012 to 2014. Johnson received an MFA at The University of Chicago and a BFA from Washington University in St. Louis. She was granted an artist-in-residence at the Tottenham Hale International Studios in London, England, and was an artist’s assistant to Julie Mehretu. Johnson has been featured in over twenty group exhibitions throughout the nation, as well as internationally, in India, at the University of Chicago’s Delhi Center, in Slovenia, and multiple times in Germany, her birth country. She has also had solo exhibitions in Chicago, IL, Berlin, Germany, and at the Blaffer Museum in Houston, TX.

Ro2 Art AT THE MAGNOLIA
West Village I 3699 McKinney ave. Ste 100
Second Floor Bar
Thursday, October 27, 6–8pm
Unanswered questions, mysteries, imponderables, and under lying meanings are a few of the concepts that are evoked through the work. As always, materials mark the beginning of my artistic endeavors. Oil paint, acrylic paint, papers, markers, inks and glues work together to become physical expressions of the quandaries of existence. Whether I literally scrape away to reveal the underlying layers, create unfamiliar shapes or symbols, or utilize mixed media in an unexpected way, the viewer is called upon to help complete the work through their own interpretation, look for the answers ( or the questions) and hopefully be moved to find the metaphors that tie into meaningful experience. – Jeanne Neal, 2016

Mike O’Brien’s two-dimensional works are a unification of sculpture, painting, and photography. He creates abstract dioramas upon a 6 foot by 2 foot tall stage where compositions are built using paper and canvas pieces he has painted or drawn upon, then torn, warped, and crushed. These manipulated paper and canvas pieces are arranged into compelling scenes that are photographed and printed. The process of transforming two-dimensional space into three-dimensional space, and back again in the final printed image is a theme that O’Brien embraces. “I like the questions that arise from the finished print. What kind of space is this? Where is the background? I like the energy that the twisted paper and fabric imply. Some forms remind me of dancers at a honky tonk and at the same time take me back to my boyhood hunting turtles and snakes along the bayous of Texas and Louisiana.”
O’Brien began his mixed media work during his time studying fine arts at the University of Houston. Following his time at UH he relocated to Austin and became a sculptor for the Texas State Parks and Wildlife Department. Over the next 23 years he fabricated everything from life-sized plastic house flies to eleven foot high mammoths cast in bronze, crisscrossing the state learning its rich and varied natural and cultural histories. Following a devastating automobile accident in 2013, O’Brien returned to his interest in mixed media artwork, bringing to his studio practice the specialization and interest acquired during his time as a sculptor, specifically his time constructing dioramas. “When finished the dioramas become worlds unto themselves where time stops and all action is frozen. I realized that I felt the same way about these dioramas as I did about my abstract multimedia artwork.
Mayhem, Method and Medium runs from October 21st to December 31st, with an Artist’s Reception the evening of October 21st from 6-8pm. The artist will be in attendance. Flatbed Press, Austin. http://www.flatbedpress.com/

Reception, Saturday, August 6, 8-10pm
for Tony Vincenti’s MFA exhibition “Bardoment”
For Tony Vincenti’s MFA show at CentralTrak (title), he explains his work as a “collage of experience”, mixing still image, moving image, and sound. The artist finds resonance in the description of collage as “the chance meeting of two worlds” and he notes that this process can extend for years.
“I think art is meant to develop a person internally; to help him learn how to organize experience, to see harmonies and to foster harmonic growth.”
Vincenti finds meditation more helpful to his practice than “art school discourse” His studies have been focused on aesthetic philosophies, like aucitya, rasa theory, chi-yun, Vincenti says he’s drawn to individuals who bring a spiritual or genuinely mystical quality to their vocation. He’s influenced by the likes of Meister Eckhart (priest), the poet Edward Taylor, and Morihei Ueshiba (martial artist).
In an attempt to organize an active and creative mind, Vincenti journals voraciously, which he claims helps him preserve memory and aids in his organization. The artist says, “It’s a way of waiting for the kairos, and acting later when the opportunity opens up.”
CentralTrak, The University of Texas at Dallas Artists Residency, established in 2008, is dedicated to the creation, presentation, and advancement of the contemporary arts. As a live/work space for eight artists, it serves as a community center in the North Texas area for broad intellectual discourse around the arts. While the residency promotes artistic experimentation through its support of production, the companion gallery encourages critical engagement in a local urban context through exhibitions and related programs. By building on the forward-thinking academic resources of the School of Arts & Humanities at The University of Texas at Dallas, CentralTrak unites artists from an expansive range of creative disciplines to extend and challenge contemporary notions of artistic practice, creative expression, and the role technology plays in these processes.

Please join us this Saturday, July 30 from 5 until 8, for an opening reception featuring work by Shayema Rahim and Lesli Robertson.
JM Gallery presents the work of two women who find beauty in unexpected materials. Lesli Robertson fuses concrete and textiles in provocative objects that force us to question the boundaries between brutal strength and refined delicacy. In works featured in this show, Lesli uses detritus from her life and studio, including woven pieces, broken forms, and pieces cut from earlier works to create “Remnants,” a series of new forms that document and comment on the material objects that define the work of her hands.
Shayema Rahim transforms drab wax into brilliantly colored encaustic paintings, full of emotion and spirit, that reveal her passion and let us share it with her. Painting in encaustic combines beeswax, resin, and pigment into deep, complex layers and allows Shayema to create lyrical works whose textures, colors, and patterns evoke the rhythm and tone of music and to express the emotional struggles and joys that have defined her as a person and an artist.
|ABOUT JM GALLERY // JM Gallery offers works of art on paper and sculptural forms that engage both the eye and the mind. The gallery promotes artists who create smart, visually compelling work and showcases their art in a space that is inviting and accessible. JM Gallery is committed to working closely with artists as they develop their work and careers and to developing lasting relationships with collectors.

Beautiful Souls: Artwork By Sierra Barnes
We are excited to have a brand new artist for this upcoming show.
Just in time for Mother’s Day, Sierra Barnes offers the kind of beautiful art that
pairs well with honoring the sacred energy of the feminine. Join us for an
opening reception from 7-10 p.m. April 29 at Art Is Life Studio.
At 19 years old, Sierra is self-taught artist born and raised in Dallas, Texas.
In 2002 she was diagnosed with Craniopharyngioma, a type of brain tumor
derived from pituitary gland embryonic tissue. This as well as other obstacles
and challenges in her life have not stopped her from pursuing her artistic passion.
It has instead inspired and motivated her as an artist as well as a person.
“Nobody’s perfect but everyone has beauty within them.
These pieces of art I have created were inspired by my own
struggles and experiences,” Sierra said.
Sierra is also a writer and writes a poem to go along with every single
piece of art she creates. Each of them are hand-written and attached
to the back of the painting.
“This art show is about how we are the souls within us and not just our
bodies,” Sierra said. “We can find beauty within our flaws and
imperfections. We judge one another and we sometimes judge ourselves.”
We look forward to seeing you. There will be light snacks served as well as

Muzeion Gallery invites you to experience the new encaustic and mixed media series, Hidden Voices, by Texas based artist, Elizabeth Schowachert and to attend the opening reception on Saturday, February 6th from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. The exhibition runs through March 5th, 2016. Both the opening reception and exhibition are free and open to the public; and the artist will be in attendance.
Elizabeth Schowachert was born and raised in Northern California, and has always had a deep appreciation and affinity with the sea and the natural beauty of the Northern California coastline. Her paintings reflect her deep love of and spiritual relationship with nature. For her, discovery and creative exploration are an essential part of art making. Her work is as much about the process of discovery as it is about the articulation of an idea, a feeling or a place. Creating art is an essential part of who she is and her hope is that her work reflects, her ideas, her passions and the deep spiritual connection she feels to nature. Elizabeth practices out of her studio located in a suburb of Dallas.
In Hidden Voices, the artwork transcribes a language that only the subconscious fully understands, with images that never clearly take shape, but instead layer upon one another to create what cannot be articulated with words. It speaks to the things we hold deep inside ourselves, sometimes to protect, sometimes to forget. It intends to access those deep places within ourselves, that are buried in the subconscious and that flicker at the surface of our memory, providing glimpses into the past experiences that have molded us into who we are.
This exploration of past experiences relates not only to personal identity, but to cultural identity. The voices of the past are expressed in the recent works by the artists through reflections of Meso-American design motifs couple with abstract expressionist mark making. In this way, the artwork draws from both Modernism and from Pre-Columbian art and creates a connection between the past and the present, exploring existential concepts and spiritual revelations. To further explore this profound connection, this showcase of contemporary abstract paintings will be accompanied by a selection of Pre-Columbian sculpture and textile works from Muzeion’s exclusive collection of antiquities, including artifacts from Mexico, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Colombia and Peru.

“Some Assemblage Required”

6pm – 9pm
Show dates Dec 6-16
Tuesday – Saturday
11:00am – 6:00pm
Giddens Gallery is pleased to announce “Transitions” by Julie Campbell.
“I Love to gather interesting images and objects from various books, newspapers and graphics to assemble them in unique ways. Then these cut paper pieces and assemblages inspire me to incorporated the different elements in my paintings. I like it when people can see the progression of thought from one piece to the next and come up with their own ideas of what the works mean to them.
Some Pieces are inspired by my own experiences but most of them grow organically from the found images and become meaningful to me as I layer the subject matter into the final work of art.
Objects in my works include a doll arm found on the beach, wooden pieces from an abandoned in Colorado, Cracker Jack toys, Green Stamps, Sonic cup toppers from the 1970’s, antique match boxes and matches, and typewriter ribbon spools. See what you can find and what memories you have of them.”

Sculpture and Watercolor of Jordan Grimes
An Evening with the Artist, Reception Jan. 14, 7 – 9 pm
“My work is inspired by the deep roots that run through my family history involving the Native American culture and their beliefs. My ancestor Cynthia Ann Parker was an American child who was kidnapped at the age of nine by a Comanche war party. She would go on to fully assimilate herself into the Comanche tribe and live with them for the next 24 years of her giving birth to a son who would be the famous Comanche Indian chief Quanah Parker . Cynthia was “rescued” from her captors and spent final sad years refusing to re-enter her old form of life and would eventually die of a broken heart some would say. My sculptures are greatly influenced by this story and are a celebration of life and the Native American’s connection with nature and all things that reside in it. This connection with nature that the Native American culture shared is a primary reason for the inclusion objects found in and provided by nature. My work is greatly influenced by Native American philosophy and religion as well. The overwhelming love for nature and all things in it that all native cultures share has greatly inspired me and affected my life. My work is meant to remind people of the hidden beauty that lives all around us by merging life and nature into one.” To view more of Jordan’s work visit www.jordangrimes.com.
