MFA Gallery
 (409A N. Tyler / Dallas / Oak Cliff)

(on view: 09.17 – 10.30.16)

Part of the 2016 Freefall Festival in Dallas
   
Dystopian Dreams, the kind when you’re half-asleep and strung out from what went down the night before. The ones where you’re falling forever and the ground never comes. Where the end comes and clouds of nuclear dust cross the horizon as you embrace in one last kiss. Of clown cars filled with endless costumed weirdos. Of webcam fantasies gone way wrong, trapped in a story you’re paying for, both literally and figuratively. Scenarios played out night after night, with occasional glimpses of higher ground, rainbows and such, just enough to whet your thirst for something more.

Dwayne Carter – Actors engaged on colorful landscapes of fallen utopias.
Randall Garrett – Dream paintings float above a cemetery of haunted personas.
Thor Johnson – Cartoon expressionist scenes of violence and gore.
Patrick Patterson-Carroll – A webcam one act in photo and text.

Patricia Rodriguez: The Roots Remain at Mountain View’s Oak Cliff Gallery

Rodriguez The Roots Remain

The Cliff Gallery at Mountain View College is commencing the 2016-2017 school year with a highly anticipated exhibition from visual artist, Patricia Rodriguez. The Roots Remain is a collection of Rodriguez’s work from over the past six years.

Rodriguez’s paintings invite the viewer to connect with nature and explore our personal relationships to it. Vines, leaves, tree trunks, and even human organs radiate off the canvas, color saturated and bright. The forms create a rhythm that is both alluring and spontaneous. Each painting lures the viewer closer in a quest to follow the movement of each vine as it dances and intertwines with another.

An Oak Cliff native, Patricia Rodriguez is a freelance artist, graphic designer, and muralist with a background in visual arts and music. She is an alumna of the Art Department at Mountain View College and has worked as an artist for over 18 years. Her painting, “Between Dreams,” was recently selected and displayed in Landscapes: A Sense of Place exhibition at the Brooklyn Gallery in New York City.

The Roots Remain opens on Monday, August 29th and will be on display until Friday, September 23rd. A closing reception will be held on Friday, September 23rd from 7 p.m.–9:30 p.m. The Cliff Gallery is located at 4849 West Illinois Avenue in room W136. Its hours of operations are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m.–4 p.m. For more information about The Roots Remain and other gallery programming, please contact Tori Phillips, Gallery Coordinator, at 214-860-3649.

CADDfund

Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas
 Announce Winner for the 2015
CADD FUNd Competition

The 2015 CADD FUNd was awarded on October 18 to Rachel Rushing for her soon to be realized project- Sunset Art Studios: An Oak Cliff artist run studio and exhibition space.

SUNSET ART STUDIOS – An Oak Cliff artist-run studio and exhibition space

The winnings of CADD FUNd ($4000) will provide some of the general operating expenses, including rent and utilities for one year, and supplies for community-activating projects that will bring members of the surrounding neighborhoods together to participate in our individual practices.

CADDfund2
OPEN STUDIOS will be an accessible way for artists to share their work in an energetic format while giving the public access to the sometimes mysterious process of art-making. This setting will create an atmosphere of openness and cultural exchange that will welcome the public to directly engage with art.

STUDIO COLLABORATIONS will combine artists and invited guests to work together on projects – taking part in their studio practices. The focus of these interactions will be sharing ideas, backgrounds, and processes. Collaborations will result in the production of a monthly zine to share documentation of artist-community interactions.

ART HAUNT will be an immersive art experience to take place the month of October 2016. Art Haunt will be created by bringing historical artworks known for their surreal and unsettling qualities into three-dimensional form within the Studios. The 2016 Art Haunt will delve into all things subconscious and whimsical through the recreation of iconic works by Salvador Dalí.

Each of these projects highlights the goal of Sunset Studios, to create meaningful interactions between the public and passionate, approachable artists.

About the Winner

rachaelrushingCommunity-based experiences like the idea for Sunset Art Studios inform Rachel Rushing’s personal work – focusing on interconnectivity, photographic materiality, and non-traditional photographic installations. Working in video projection, photographic installation, and sculptural books, she is continually aware of the experience of looking as a connective thread between herself and the viewer. Her specific interest in installation work directly connects with the goals for Sunset Art Studios – to work with local artists to create open and encouraging public-art experiences.The impetus for Sunset Art Studios stems from her five years of experience with Oil and Cotton, an Oak Cliff art supply store, community art school, and hive for creative minds. Through Oil and Cotton she works with the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, creating monthly activities that integrate arts and sciences, and with the Latino Cultural Center, teaching photography and optics to local high school students.

Rachel Rushing was born in Natchitoches, Louisiana and attended Louisiana Tech University where she received a BFA in Photography, before moving to Dallas, TX where she received an MFA in Studio Art from the University of North Texas. She is currently an Instructor of Introductory and Intermediate Photography at Mountain View College. She is also the Arts Coordinator for Oak Cliff Earth Day, a member of alt8, a photography collective, and co-host and producer of the Art Funk podcast. She previously taught Advanced Photography at the University of North Texas.
