Opening Reception for VANGUARD: Anniversary Exhibition Feb. 18

LAUBE_55-16_Dimensions variable (1MB)

Celebrating its fourth year in the Dallas Design District, Laura Rathe Fine Art (LRFA), presents ‘VANGUARD,’ a group anniversary exhibition featuring distinctive new works by various gallery artists, with an opening reception on Saturday, February 18th from 5-8pm.

Since opening its doors at its second location in February 2013, LRFA has experienced remarkable growth and continued success on Dragon Street. This is due in large part to the gallery’s continually expanding and remarkably diverse roster of contemporary artists. ‘VANGUARD’ will highlight this diversity and present works in a variety of media by midcareer and emerging artists from both Texas and abroad. Though they come from different backgrounds, each artist is producing work at the height of their careers.

LRFA has recently broadened its international focus. ‘VANGUARD’ will present new works by recent additions to the gallery roster including, German artist Michael Laube, South African Artist Gavin Rain, and Chinese Artist Zhuang Hong Yi. This year also marks the addition of nationally and internationally known artists, Hunt Slonem and Cassandria Blackmore.

The success of LRFA’s Dallas location is also owed to the continued support of the gallery’s enthusiastic and continually expanding collector base, whose passion for contemporary art mirrors the growth and success of the Dallas art market and the city’s art scene more broadly. LRFA is extremely grateful to the community for its continued support and looks forward to serving its patrons in the New Year!

VANGUARD’ will be on view through March 25, 2017.

RO2 Art presents Sharon Neel-Bagley Ready..1..2..3….


WHERE: The Magnolia Theatre, 2nd Floor Bar – West Village
WHEN: December 8 – January 20, 2015-16
OPENING RECEPTION: Wednesday, December 9, 6-8pm

Ro2 Art is pleased to present “READY..1..2..3….” featuring new photographs by Dallas-based artist, Sharon Neel-Bagley. The reception will be held Wednesday, December 9, from 6-8pm

These are not your ordinary floral photographs. They are high-speed shots taken at the moment of impact between the ammunition shot from a pellet gun and a chemically frozen flower. When I freeze these beautiful specimens with liquid nitrogen, they become brittle, allowing them to shatter, fracture, and crack in unusual ways. Shooting these flowers creates an explosion of energy, motion and color that only exists in a brief moment in time.
— Sharon Neel-Bagley, 2015

New York at PDNB: Michael Kenna, John Albok, Harold Feinstein, Morris Engel and Others


This late summer exhibition explores the diversity and evolving landscape of the Big Apple, from street scenes to architectural studies, through a survey of both vintage and modern views.

Photographs from the 1920’s – 1960’s of New York will include street scenes of kids playing and entertaining themselves in a variety of nostalgic city kid ways.

Summer scenes from Coney Island will be included. Both Morris Engel and Harold Feinstein captured the energy of Coney Island like no others.

Also included in this exhibition are the captivating and iconic images of New York by John Albok. A master at documenting everyday life, John Albok’s passion and gentle spirit captures the rich life of a majestic city.

Michael Kenna, a contemporary artist, provides us with stellar images of New York architecture. His studies of the enigmatic Brooklyn Bridge, the Chrysler Building, and Empire State building reflect his high regard for great design and engineering that dictate a great city.

This exhibition coincides with PDNB’s third Biennial FUN SHOW! New Items and reduced pricing will be added to the FUN SHOW! for the opening of the New York exhibition.

Opening event – Saturday, August 8, 2015 from 2:00 – 8:00 PM.

“A Black & White Interpretation of Nature” Reception Sept. 11


JB and Susan Harlin create their black & white photographs with “time-honored tools, working solely with film and traditional photographic paper in the wet darkroom.”

“It is said that color image is generally reality, while a black & white image can represent what is within the mind’s eye. The finished photographs that JB and Susan create are their interpretation of their experience. The uniqueness of their vision, coupled with the large and ultra large format negatives they make, allow detail and depth of imagery that is unique to their art form. The beauty and richness of high quality black & white contact prints is with itself an experience for the viewer. Hopefully, those that view their images will see as well as experience their interpretation of the things they photograph.”

Enjoy the photographic journey of JB and Susan during the month of September and be a part of a free reception in their honor from 7-9 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 11 at Keller Town Hall, 1100 Bear Creek Pkwy.

For more information please contact 817-743-4000 or publicarts@cityofkeller.com.
