A Priori Painting Exhibition: Jim Lively opening April 22 at Martsolf Lively

A Fresh Start

Martsolf Lively Contemporary

521 N. Interurban, Richardson, Texas 75081


A Priori Series of Paintings

by Jim Lively

April 22, 2017 – July 22, 2017

Opening Reception: Saturday, April 22, 2017, 6 to 9pm


Fashion designer, Paulette Martsolf and artist, Jim Lively brought their creative talents together to create an innovative concept of merging unique and original fashion with contemporary visual art. The concept gave birth to the endeavor known as “Allie – Coosh Lifestyle” and “Martsolf Lively Contemporary” where fashion gracefully and seamlessly collides with fine art. Previously, Paulette owned Allie-Coosh which featured her own creative fashion for twenty-four years located in Snider Plaza. Due to escalating rent, she decided to renovate the building she owned near downtown Richardson which housed her manufacturing. The renovations resulted in an industrial chic venue which now houses both her manufacturing, a fashion boutique, art gallery and artist studio.

Customed TailoredAs the renovations began to unfold, Jim contemplated as to what might be an appropriate theme for a series of paintings to christen the new venue. After some thought, he kept being drawn back to his days in college where he had the luxury of studying philosophy. Jim was always intrigued by the concept of a priori which may be defined as relating to or denoting reasoning or knowledge that proceeds from theoretical deduction rather than from observation or experience.

The first painting in this series is entitled “Fresh Start” which is an abstract piece that incorporates imaginary asymmetrical shapes into what appear to be wood grain slats. By its title, the painting is not dependent upon past experience but instead is forward looking and intended to be somewhat unique. Several of the pieces in the series such as the whimsically titled “Little Black Dress” embraces the theme of the Allie – Coosh Lifestyle and Martsolf Lively Contemporary of where fashion collides with art.

Flatbed Press is pleased to present New Cuban Color: Prints by Limonta, Mederos, and Valdes in the O2 Project Gallery space. Organized by Alfredo Felipe Valdes, works in this exhibition utilize the human form as a symbolic vehicle to explore moments of human experience: birth, death, love, or the idea of origin and guilt in our Western tradition. From the intricately textured collagraphs of Isolina Limonta to the expressive and painterly monoprints of Yordanis Garmendia Mederos and Alfredo Felipe Valdes, this exhibition captures a wonderful glimpse of the contemporary printmaking happening in Cuba today.

Tyler Shields: Provocateur opens Jan. 7


Samuel Lynne Galleries is pleased to invite you to the opening reception for photographer Tyler Shields’ exhibition “Provocateur” on January 7, 2017 from 5-8pm. Shields will be in attendance at the opening reception, which will also serve as a launch for his latest book Provocateur. The exhibition will be on view until February 11, 2017.

Tyler Shields is known for his unique brand of volatile and off-handed celebrity photography and has come to be recognized as “Hollywood’s Favorite Photographer.” The meaning behind his work goes so much deeper than the famous faces and materials inhabiting it. Often using dark and controversial subject matter, his photography challenges convention, forcing the viewer to contemplate the true nature of human existence.

Jay Bolotin: The Book of Only Enoch


Flatbed Press in Austin is pleased to present The Book of Only Enoch, a portfolio of 20 woodcut and relief etchings, and selected plates used to create the prints.

JANUARY 13 – MARCH 11, 2017
January 20, 2017 6-8PM RECEPTION

Bolotin tells the story of Only Enoch, a sensitive Jewish boy from Kentucky who is named after an apocryphal book left out of the Hebrew Bible whose protagonist “went to heaven and lived to tell the tale.” The viewer enters a world inhabited by people, flora, fauna, and heretofore unknown forms and spaces. And in ways that may remind us of epic story-tellers including William Blake and Lewis Carroll, Bolotin combines words and images to create worlds with their own logic, in order to tell captivating, bizarre and dreamlike stories.

Bolotin’s visual work is included in many public and private collections, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York; PAFA (Philadelphia); The University of Richmond Museum, Smith College Museum, and the Australian National Museum. He grew up in rural Kentucky.

The Book of Only Enoch is an ingredient in an ongoing trilogy of motion pictures called The Jackleg Testament, all constructed from Bolotin’s visual work. Part one of The Jackleg Testament – Jack & Eve, a woodcut motion picture, won Best Animation at the Santa Fe Film Festival, 2007.

Bolotin will give a brief performance at the reception, at 6:00 PM, Friday, January 20th, consisting of songs and a short film titled Kharmen, which combines a famous aria from the opera, Carmen, and the short stories of Russian absurdist writer, Daniil Kharms.

This exhibition is presented in conjunction with Landmarks (UT Austin). Organized and circulated by the University of Richmond Museums, Virginia, the exhibition is made possible in part with funds from the Louis S. Booth Arts Fund.

Molly DeVoss to Exhibit The Love Series Paintings

Dallas, TX – November 12, 2014/ — Trinity West Fine Art Gallery in the Dallas Design District announces the solo exhibition of artist Molly DeVoss’s new body of work “The Love Series”.

The Love Series contains three groups of work: “Aspects of Love”, which interpret the four Greek words for Love, “Spaces in Your Togetherness”, which represent Khalil Gibran’s writings on Love, and “Love Is”, which are ten paintings that represent aspects of Love.

Molly’s paintings, with multiple layers, unique textures and color palette, reflect her passion for the land of the Southwest. The human figure is a common theme in her work.

Molly DeVoss lives and creates her art in Dallas, Texas and Santa Fe, New Mexico. She has participated in numerous shows and her works are part of many individual and corporate collections in the United States and Japan. Molly states: “Present moments in time are captured in my art – movement, transitioning, feelings, and shifts – and often the human/spirit form emerges.”

The opening will be Saturday December 6th from 6-9pm at Trinity West Fine Art Gallery, a new addition to the Dallas Design District focusing on North Texas art and artists. Trinity West Fine Art is located at 2335 Valdina Street, Dallas, Texas, 75207.

The Artists Market — POSTPONED


It’s a movement. Not a one-night-only event. Conscious Existence Gear would introduces The Artists Market, a community of support, encouragement, diversity, and unity for the self-expressed. It is expected to bring a much needed and long overdue boost to the Dallas arts scene.

Think, your local farmers market, but for artists of all crafts: painters, sculptors, designers /fashionistas, poets, authors, musicians, photographers, DJs and all who provide a self-produced craft. It is a community of entrepreneurs in need of a place to call their own; where once a month, artists from different genres can showcase their products to the world. This is not a flea market or resale shop of mass produced items from large corporations, but a small village of people whose recipe for success consists of blood, sweat, tears, time, talent, long days, sleepless nights, missed meals, and low budgets. The goal of The Artists Market is to sell and market products to the general public. In addition, The Market also helps establish a network for like-minded artists and build connections to expand each artists customer and fan base. The movement is FREE to the public and powered by Conscious Existence Gear, a new clothing brand designed to bring verbal conversation back to society.

The Artists Market also presents “The Showcase:  Show Us What’cha Got!”, where qualified vendors have the opportunity to show the public their craft.

Deadline for application is April 4.

This movement is set to debut on May 18, 2014 at Lofty Spaces, 816 Montgomery in Dallas, TX.  In order to make this event a success, we need artists like you! If you are interested in being a vendor, email consciousexistencegear@yahoo.com for application and information.  Like us on Facebook at facebook.com/consciousexistencegear.  Check back to our website for more information.  (Currently being updated)

LuminArte Gallery hosts a Preview Reception of Jim Lively’s Sterling Vineyards Red Wine Paintings

LuminArte Gallery hosts a Preview Reception

Saturday, March 8, 2014, from 7pm to 10pm

of Jim Lively’s Sterling Vineyards Red Wine Paintings

A Pinot Noir Blend_2011 Sterling Pinot Noir_Acrylic_16inby16in canvas

Who could imagine attending an art exhibition at a prominent art gallery, if wine were not served? Wine is an essential component to enjoying and experiencing art. Sterling Vineyards and and LuminArte Gallery represented artist, Jim Lively are “partnering” to take the relationship of wine and art to the next level where wine actually becomes part of the creative process in making art.  Recently, Lively experimented with using wine as a medium for various figurative and abstract paintings in his new “Red Wine” series of paintings.  When the experimentation with the use of wine proved to be successful, he thought of approaching selected vineyards with the concept of incorporating exclusively one vineyard’s wine in a series of paintings.  When Lively pitched the idea to Sterling Vineyards, it was onboard and invited Lively to exhibit ten of his paintings from the new “Sterling Vineyards” series of red wine paintings during the 2014 Napa Valley Art in April from April 1 to April 30, 2014.  Along with Lively’s paintings, Sterling Vineyards will be exhibiting artworks by San Francisco artist Vaso Peritos , the “Story of a Winery” exhibition by Ansel Adams and selected pieces from the Sterling Vineyards Private Art Collection. Sterling Vineyards, 1111 Dunaweal Ln,Calistoga, CA 94515, www.sterlingvineyards.com.

Visitors to LuminArte Gallery are invited to preview the Sterling Vineyards series of red wine paintings before they are exhibited at Sterling Vineyards as part of the Napa Valley Arts in April. Lively’s other paintings from his “Red Wine” series will be also be on exhibit in his Studio 1 at LuminArte Gallery, 1727 E. Levee Street, Dallas, Texas 75207, www.luminarte.com.

Wine Squared is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new works by Robert Hamilton.

crying saint 5

Wine Squared is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new works by Robert Hamilton. Please join us on Thursday October 24, from 7-10 p.m., for the exhibition opening and to meet the artist. There will be door prizes, wine tastings, drink specials and live music.

To coincide with the upcoming “Day of the Dead Festival”, we will be hosting a countdown party to celebrate the upcoming weekend’s festivities! The Festival, including “Cirque Du Horror” will take place Saturday October 26th in Denton.

In the exhibition, Wine2 presents a series of artworks that display Hamilton’s continuing paper-mache/painting investigation. The word “paper-mache” often denotes sculpture and in this group of works, Hamilton combines the 2-D aspect of flat painting with the texture and sculpting feel of paper-mache. The canvases are clothed in paper and glue before ever receiving paint. This makes for a very uneven, very uneasy surface that works in conjunction with the often emotional, striking subject matter.

Robert Hamilton is a North Texas based artist who has exhibited painting and sculpture in and around the DFW area as well as Austin Texas. He is also very involved with the ambiance décor of the “Denton Day of the Dead Festival” and the joint performance, “Cirque Du Horror.” Walking skeletal sculptures and a rolling float are just some of the creations that have been displayed during these popular Denton events. He graduated from the University of North Texas in 1996 with a degree in drawing and painting.

Wine Squared is quickly becoming the Denton Square’s jewel amongst a collection of interesting store fronts. Owner Brook Ray is a true sommelier and offers incredibly unique wine and beer selections, forcing one reviewer to exclaim “…it is one of the best wine bars in Dallas and, for that matter, in Texas.”

Wine Squared hours: Sun 2-8pm
,Mon-Wed 4pm-10pm,
Thurs-Sat 4pm-12am
 110 W Oak St A
Denton, TX 76201

The exhibition will run from October 24th to December 28th.

For more info contact Robert Hamilton (214)641-4620 or hamilton@artbyhamilton.com  or visit the online portfolio www.artbyhamilton.com
