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.

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.
