The Oak Cliff Society of Fine Arts was originally established at the home studio of the renowned Dallas artist, Frank Reaugh, in 1926. When founding member and former president Mrs. E.P. Turner passed away in 1938, the family home was deeded to the OCSFA. Plans for what would become I35 forced the E.P. Turner House to relocate to its current location at 401 N Rosemont Ave. where today it continues to serve as the home of the Oak Cliff Society of Fine Arts. The Society has been hosting art exhibits for more than 80 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.

Dallas Piranha Printmakers at Mighty Fine Arts

Opening Reception
Saturday, August 12 at 6 PM – 9 PM

Location: Mighty Fine Arts 409A N.Tyler in Oak Cliff TX 75208

Mighty Fine Arts presents “Dallas Piranha Printmakers” curated by Matt Bagley, master printmaker and head honcho of Iron Frog Press, and featuring work by Courtney Googe, Brian McClure, Terri Thoman, Josh Monroe, Erica Guajardo, Mirka Hokkanen, Junanne Peck, Evita Tezeno, Una Scott, Chris Merlick, Lindsay Burris, Jack Russell, Angela Faz, Gary Uribe, Viktor Otrix, Paul “Arte Chambers” Robey, Scott Krakowski, Amber Crimmings and Matt Bagley.

“Dallas Piranha Printmakers” opens a window onto the burgeoning Dallas print maker community. Printmakers nationwide are experiencing a Renaissance and Dallas is no exception. Despite the lack of any central studio or hub print shop printmakers here have managed to create their own cultural millieu. To be certain these are old school print crafters eschewing digital and electronic technologies in favor of handmade, hand pulled manual dexterity and acumen. This is a DIY world done in home spaces, garage studios or spare closets, wherever an ink slinger can get away with making a mess.But like a pool of piranha they’re hungry for acknowledgement and want to take a bite out of your attention. So come out and support your local print artists and marvel at their virtuosity and fresh creative visions while enhancing your art knowledge of print techniques! Jump in the pool with some accomodating piranha who don’t bite but might want to share an art bone with you!

This show will open Sat, Aug 12 and will run till Sun. Sept.24.

Oak Cliff Film Festival June 16 – 19, 2016

oakclifffilmfestivallogo

The 5th Annual Oak Cliff Film Festival (OCFF) will take place June 16-19, 2016 at the Texas Theatre, Kessler Theater, Bishop Arts Theatre Center, and numerous other venues around Jefferson Boulevard and the Bishop Arts District.

http://oakclifffilmfestival.com/

 

For the schedule and to buy tickets see http://www.prekindle.com/festival/id/24390158211445252

The 2016 festival theme is inspired by the New Hollywood era in which a wave of auteur filmmakers were given the freedom to tell the stories they wanted to tell. These directors broke through the established conventions of the studio system and slapped it with a jolt of energy, sexuality, realism, and artistry that it had desperately needed. These films built new paradigms and communities and utilized new technologies that made production accessible for more filmmakers.

The Oak Cliff Film Festival was established in 2012 as a regional film festival in the Oak Cliff area of Dallas, Texas. The festival has received national acclaim from prominent sources including The New York Times, Filmmaker Magazine, and Moviemaker Magazine. Led by the Aviation Cinemas team, who took over operations at the Texas Theatre in December of 2010, and backed by the 501 3(c) Oak Cliff Foundation.
