2017 Cedars Open Studios

Saturday, November 18, 2017

10 am – 6 pm


Now in our 15th year, cedars open studios is the largest event of the year in The Cedars. The Cedars, Dallas, Texas has long been home to a diverse group of Dallas painters, photographers, sculptors and musicians who have contributed to the deep and gritty history of the neighborhood.

Watch live demos and meet renowned artists such as Bowman Glass / Artists in Glass, Albert Scherbarth, Rick Maxwell and TONY COLLINS art + home. Visit the growing number of galleries including Ro2 Art, Janette Kennedy Gallery and Cedars Art House.

Special exhibits this year include The Museum of Street Culture “Looking for Home” featuring the photography by Mary Ellen Mark. The installation in Encore Park Dallas traces the life of Tiny, a 13-year-old runaway teen when Mark first encountered her in Seattle, Washington, in 1983, while Mark was working on a story for Life Magazine.

Dallas Heritage Village at Old City Park exhibit “Neighborhoods We Called Home,” explores the historic neighborhoods of Dallas that served as strong, supportive communities for African American, Hispanic, and Jewish Dallasites from the early 1900s and beyond.

The evening will culminate with the annual tradition “The Decorating of the Tree” by Bowman Glass / Artists in Glass followed by special events at Buzzworks and the newly reopened Longhorn Ballroom!

Bike Friendly Cedars will lead a pedal powered tour of the studios and Lime Bike will have bikes available at a special rate for visitors.

If you’ve never been to the Cedars, now is a great chance to learn about the neighborhood – itself an evolving work of art.

Continental Gin Open Studios April 17 & 18


This Friday and Saturday
April 17th and 18th
The Continental Gin Building Opens their Doors for
Notable Artists
The Continental Gin Building (CGB) will be having an open house on April 17th from 6 to 10 p.m. and  April 18th from 2 to 8 p.m.
The tenants will open their studio doors and showcase the diverse talents that make them an outstanding community with immense positive impact on the City of Dallas.
The CGB is truly a community of diversified artists, designers (clothing, accessories, interior), craftsmen, film producers, modern to classic painters, photographers, etc… all who create a collaboration of talents.  
Participating artists include: Rob Aikey, Diána Antohe, Jay Bailey, Connie Roschlau Ball, Donna Davis Ball, Fannie Brito, Stuart Burne, Alan Cook, Patsi Davila, Alison De Vito, STATUS Design, Bill Planey Graphic Design, Marianna Gargour, Andrea Guay, Anne L. Hines, Jenny Keller, David Klucsarits, Nancy Miller, Ty Milner, Marsha Moser, Bob Nunn, Lindsey Owen, Jan Partin, Kim Petty, Paula Radvansky, Ethan SalazarKitty Snead, John Sustaita, Michael Sutton, Carroll Swenson-Roberts, VET and Leonard Volk. 
Featured artist, Stuart Burne (hosted by Heather Helen Ray), will be traveling all the way from Wales, UK to showcase his pieces. Stuart has grown up exploring the coast and has brought that to life with his paintings. He works with canvases using acrylic paints as well as painting on location to get the best images for his work. Stuart will bring paintings that show the Irish Sea, Virgin trains, Stena Line, Irish ferries and others. 
Originally a cotton gin factory built by Robert S. Munger, the CGB was the largest manufacturer of cotton-processing equipment in the United States. In 1982, John Tatum bought the building with the knowledge and vision that art contributes to the economy of communities. The 125 year old building is now known as the oldest art community in Deep Ellum.
The CGB has taken a unique approach by bringing in local and artistic talents. The tenants build masterpieces within the CGB walls. They are individual artists thriving within an interactive community. Under one roof, these tenants have created a symbiotic relationship, helping one another succeed. 
Local band Felix Flores, which is a folk, jazz and indie band, will be playing Friday, April 17th on the second floor of the CGB. Their style of music brings a great vibe to all things art. CGB will also be participating in the Deep Ellum Art Walk which will be taking place on Saturday, April 18th.
