Join us this Spring Gallery Night 2017 at the Grackle Art Gallery to experience art, culture, and live music. A mix of phenomenal local artists with works guaranteed to dazzle the senses will be showcased.
The majority of people who work at fine art museums are active artists. Museums are powered by artists.
The Grackle Art Gallery is hosting this show in honor and celebration of this truth. The idea for this show originated from staff at The Amon Carter Museum of American Art where we chose the theme Works on Paper and Photography to tribute the great Works on Paper and Photography collection that sets this museum apart in the Fort Worth Cultural District.
In creating this show, we are enriching the community of Fort Worth by promoting these local artists with a space to show work together.
This show has been curated by Allester Vinteers and Shane Green, both passionate and recognized local community artists.
We give special thanks to the folks at The Grackle Art Gallery for granting us the opportunity to use their space and to everyone else who’s helped us make this a reality!
This is a free event. Come join us to support the local Art Community.
FUN, FRESH, ALIVE and HERE!
*The show itself will be on view by appointment starting on the 19th of March. We are also having a Matinee the day after Gallery Night, Sunday, March, 26th from 12-3pm.
Here’s a list of the amazing musicians who will be playing live at our Art Show during Spring Gallery Night 2017!!!
We give special thanks to Clint Niosi for arranging this line up of awesome musical talent!
Inspired by the Japanese aesthetic of Wabi-Sabi, in this exhibit of abstract watermedia paintings Hailey Herrera integrates freeform lines and shapes; finding her inspiration from nature and her surroundings. Unless she has a specific theme in mind, she begins with some calligraphic lines without a preconceived idea of result. In the process of interplaying lines and shapes spontaneously, an idea emerges and the painting reveals something new to which her intuition and emotion responds. This spontaneous decision process leads to a fascinating and unconventional result.
The work displayed at Elm Street Studio is an ongoing study of experimentation in watermedia abstract painting. Please join us at Elm Street Studio in Keller, TX for a complimentary reception and meet the artist on Friday, March 24 from 6 to 8 pm. For more information and to see images of Herrera’s work, please visit www.ElmStreetStudioKeller.com. Fresh Paint: Watermedia Abstracts by Hailey Herrera will be on display through April 27, 2017.
Join us for happy hour on Friday, January 20, from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m., as we celebrate our local artists, who add so much beauty and diversity to our gallery. Enjoy wine and light refreshments, meet the artists, and browse 12,000 square feet of contemporary and traditional fine art, including original paintings by local, national and international artists, handcrafted jewelry, art glass, and more.
In a continued effort to reexamine the objecthood of photographic backdrops used in mainstream portrait studios, Appleton conceptualizes the photographic backdrop by making these large format backdrops the focal point within a real world landscape as well as using them as backdrops for additional backdrops. While with previous work a similar approach explored the parallel use of early digital landscape photography often appearing on computer monitors coupled with digital manipulation techniques, this new work explores a straight photography method as well as a nostalgic approach by referencing the final product of mainstream portrait photography and the customary act of cutting images from a gridded portrait sheet for distribution to family and friends.
Choose Your Own Adventure
Choose Your Own Adventure is a solo exhibition highlighting a colorful collection of drawings and small sculptures that explore the idea of wandering. Inspired by the book series of the same name, Powell continues to investigate the human condition using shrinkable plastic as her primary medium. Powell creates playful narratives which invite the viewer to visually wander through a series of imagined spaces while being encouraged to make their own conceptual connections. Travel inspired imagery inform the series of drawings, while mapping specific memories inform the series of small hanging sculptures in the exhibition.
Composer, producer, dj, and installation artist. He owns and operates New Media Recordings, a production company and creative venue on the south side of Fort Worth. Talambas does original scores and sound design for a number of films, and has recorded, produced, programmed, mastered, and arranged for a variety of local, national and international artists in a myriad of genres. Talambas consistently employs technology, improvisation and space into the pieces he composes, creating site specific, and musician specific electro-acoustic works.
Bury Them Breathing
Michael’s work is based on recent and historical social topics such as race, war, immigration, and politics. His goal is to show the viewer an entangled web of similarities through historical and present models of social dynamics. Thus embracing the viewers gaze, warming them up to the cold world that exists around them.
Downstairs Project Space
An exhibition curated by Clint Bargers
Upstairs Project Space
Arbitrary Ambition – curated by
Works by Michelle Bonilla, Nicole Bosley, Carlee Cox, Sam Granado, Joelle Nagy and Olivia Nucci.
Arbitrary Ambition uses traditional craft techniques in order to subvert stereotypical ideas of gender. Embroidery, crochet, and domestic objects are used as a means to discuss the problematic associations of craft and femininity. Stereotypically a site of feminine production and labor, craft is devalued within the art market and thus occupies a lower position within the cultural hierarchy. This show aims to elevate the position of craft through its interdisciplinary use, shift in scale, and aggressive attitude. The artists featured in the exhibition are all undergraduate students at TCU enrolled in the course, Feminist Concepts and Strategies in Studio Art.
Saturday November 5 – 10:00am – 12:00, with Suzanne McNeill-Sparks
Party featuring a Slide Show of photos, Suzanne’s Sketchbook of Africa, Beaded Jewelry, and Safari Stories.
Suzanne Sparks just returned from a month-long visit to Africa. From Ngorongoro Crater to Victoria Falls to the Sarengeti to Karen Blixen’s home (from the movie ‘Out of Africa’), she traveled to visit villages, National Wildlife Parks and five different countries. Suzanne stayed in tent-cabins and tracked wild animals in the ‘bush’. Visiting traditional tribal peoples in their villages and hearing stories of their culture was enlightening. Suzanne returned with her collection of authentic tribal beaded jewelry and textiles. Come and visit while Suzanne shares her adventures. The slide show begins promptly at 10:15. FREE but please call 817-266-3085 to let us know that you are coming. We want to be sure to have enough cookies and punch.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
Erica Guajardo is an Oak Cliff based artist who specializes in bold designs across public and gallery spaces, and textiles/handbags. She holds degrees in printmaking and interior design, as well as a Bachelor of Arts from UTA. In 2014, she was selected as one of the artists to participate in the “Parking Meter Project” in Deep Ellum. Along with that, she has painted in nearly 100 different venues and festivals, and instructed “painting with a twist classes” in the metroplex.
Registration is limited to 20 students. Registrants must arrive by 6:55 PM. Spots will be given up to those on a waiting list after 6:55 PM.
You are invited to “Not All Who Wander are Lost,” a presentation by Artist Gail Cope at the Visual Arts Society of Texas’ (VAST) monthly meeting on October 6th, from 7 – 9 p.m, at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center, 400 East Hickory St, Denton.
“Not All Who Wander are Lost” will reveal how a lifetime of travel and study have influenced Cope’s art. In addition, she will discuss the techniques developed on her way to becoming dotty, or as she likes to call it, “A Neopointilist.” Gail Cope: Artist Statement
Curiosity and inventiveness have long been hallmarks of my work in the classroom and now in my paintings. One of my goals at the graduate level is to incorporate the experimentation with layers, bubbles, pointillism and media with meaning, symbolism and philosophy. After more than six decades of living, the lessons learned show in the works; the layers are complicated, overlapping and difficult to separate.
Inspiration comes from studying past and modern masters as well as reading philosophy and comparative religious texts. The labyrinth is a visible representation of the journey of life for many cultures and certainly is part of my work. The layering of structure over chaos plays a role in representing the attempt of the mind to bring some sense and insight into the apparently random and disordered universe.
Layering different media with a variety of images evokes the overwhelming glut of information and images from modern technology. Learning to focus on the important, relevant and meaningful makes a painting evocative of the struggles facing all humans. If the artist can find the quiet spaces among the loud and jumbled places, then there is hope.
Gail Cope received her M.F.A. from Texas Woman’s University in 2013. To find out more about Gail, see: www.gailcopearts.com

UNT on the Square presents an exhibition of paintings and drawings by Sam Ivie from August 15th-September 3rd, 2016. There are 30-40 images in this show, which is the largest number of images ever presented by the artist to the public. The opening reception for the exhibit is on Thursday, August 18th, 6:00-7:30pm.
This workshop takes place in the beautiful, historic town of Grapevine, Texas September 16 & 17, 2016.
Our 2 days together will include step by step demonstrations, one on one individual easel time, and fun exercises to learn how to loosen up and create bold, colorful paintings.
I use the “Alla Prima” method of painting (working wet into wet) and I will teach you how to layer with transparent and opaque oils, and how to keep your paints from getting muddy. We will work on technique, color mixing, composition, light, and brush strokes. Students will learn to see “Impressionistically” and explore to ability to “suggest” rather than “render” the subject.
Come prepared to have a relaxing, fun-filled learning experience. This class is for all levels of painting from beginners to advanced! For more information and to register, click here.

Non Pixelated: The Persistence of Painting in the Digital Age
July 2-30, 2016
Reception with the Artists:Saturday, July 2, 2016 (7-9 PM)
Featuring the work of eighteen DFW painters, the Non Pixelated exhibition explores the unceasing relevance of the traditional medium of painting in the context of our contemporary digital age. The exhibition includes the work of artists who, for the most part, have chosen not to shift completely from their use of analogue painting techniques to the more widely accessible mass digital media.
Unlike other exhibitions where the art pieces adhere to a certain theme or stylistic direction, the Non Pixelated show focuses mainly on presenting a collection of highly imaginative artwork that serves as irrefutable evidence that painting remains an enduring, vibrant, and ever-present form of art in a world that seems to be inundated and enthralled by digital imagery. The art pieces in this exhibition make a determined and resounding statement that the contribution of painting to the world of art continues to be, and will continue to be for a long time to come, of utmost prominence.
Non Pixelated includes paintings by Rita Barnard, Sarah Barnett, Awadh Baryoum, Bernard Bortnick, S. Chuck McCarter, Justin Clumpner, Ray-Mel Cornelius, Steve Danner, Jacque Forsher, Gale Gibbs, Duke Horn, Karen Jacobi, Darrell Madis, Alexa Mason, Julia McLain, Ruben Miranda, Monica Moody, and Madelyn Sneed.
The exhibition was curated by Enrique Fernández Cervantes.
Natural Impressions: Recent Artwork by Cecilia Thurman
Through October 1, 2016
Meet the Artist:Saturday, July 2, 2016(7-9 PM)
The White Rock Lake Museum, housed inside the Bath House Cultural Center, presents Natural Impressions, an exhibition of recent paintings by Cecilia Thurman.
Cecilia Thurman is a painter and a printmaker who lives in Dallas, near White Rock Lake. The acrylic on paper paintings featured in the Natural Impressions exhibition are the artist’s most recent body of work. The new series refers to Cecilia’s tremendous and abiding love of nature, which is unquestionably a constant theme that can be seen in many of her prints and paintings. The goal of the imagery, according to the artist, is to evoke the feeling of elements found in nature, and to express the poetry and mystery of the land that we all share.

DALLAS – CYDONIA is pleased to announce its thirteenth exhibition: THE THIRTEEN MOST BEAUTIFUL… FEATURING FRANCES BAGLEY AND INTRODUCING JAYCE SALLOUM, MONICA TAP, CONRAD VENTUR, AND SUN YOU. THE EXHIBITION OPENS SATURDAY, JUNE 18 AND CLOSES ON SATURDAY, JULY 30, 2016.
FRANCES BAGLEY AND CONRAD VENTUR WILL BE PRESENT FOR THE RECEPTION ON SATURDAY, JUNE 18 FROM 6 TO 8PM.
When the duration of suspension supersedes the moment, we are able to reflect on the representation of those qualities of life that engage us. Beyond mere seduction, beauty as agency functions as a wellspring of fascination and contemplation. The synthesis of dialogical opposites, surface and meaning, create an alternative portrait unbound from convention. In 13 Most Beautiful, Brooklyn-based artist Conrad Ventur revisits and records Warhol’s subjects 45 years after the original footage was taken. For Ventur, utopia is found in people, not destinations. Participation, in all its forms, must be an emotional journey. People transport us. Unlike Warhol, he is not consumed with fame and celebrity. Ventur unhinged the personas Warhol flattened. He humanized them through the development of real, sincere relationships with those filmed. Warhol’s Screen Tests were the origins of what we have come to know as reality television. Ventur attempts to clarify that history, its staging and curation.
Through thirteen individual works of art, five artists unmask diverse attitudes about pleasure for the eyes. Instead of grouping together art illustrating Kant’s definition, beauty as the action between an object and the brain, as embedded with moral value,Thirteen Most Beautiful wanders down alternative paths where beauty is exploited as a tool. The works escape classical notions of exoticism borne from the “second” sex or the myth of the woman. Beauty is not the message; beauty is the medium in a show dominated by photography and sculpture.
A large-scale photo installation of flowers by Lebanese-Canadian Jayce Salloum serves as a second anchor of the exhibition. Salloum’s photography and its documentary traditions work in conjunction with typologogy. “[A]rt – its making, curation, and dissemintation – becomes one of many means of achiving” and deeper ontological inquiry. 1 For Salloum, flower collection 2004 – 2016 represents notions of ‘the natural,’ of our relations to nature and beauty. Photography functions as a process to reflect on how to begin to understand notions of what is natural and beautiful. His photos attempt to create some sense out of “an ‘imitation of life’ that never comes close enough.” Where does this sense of longing come from?
Poetic, painted images of photographic snapshots by Canadian Monica Tap generate soft observation. Sculptures by Brooklynite Sun You charm by employing beauty tropes while being composed out of meaningless materials found in junk shops and hardware stores. Dallas-based Frances Bagley’s bronze Cleopatra’s Collar commands a presence without ever directly representing female anatomy. The Thirteen Most Beautiful… presents the results of engaging beauty for more than its façade.
THE THIRTEEN MOST BEAUTIFUL COLLECTIVE SHOW OPENS ONSATURDAY, JUNE 17 AND RUNS UNTIL SATURDAY, JULY 30, 2016.

Turn the common into something unusual and artistic
Marina May is an IT professional and lives and works in Dallas. Five years ago she discovered an incredible form of art – Painting on Rocks. Now it is her passion, her hobby and her part time business.
To Marina, rock painting is an especially good technique for rediscovering your dormant abilities. With a little guidance, people of all levels of ability can experience the magic of “bringing stones to life”. She uses natural, non-manufactured rocks and acrylic paints to create realistic paintings on smooth rock “canvases,” giving this style of painting a truly unique creativity.

Gallery 414 is pleased to announce Meditations from the Median, a one person exhibition featuring non-representational paintings and drawings by Erik Skjolsvik. The exhibition opens on Saturday, January 23, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM, with the artist in attendance; and the reception is free and open to the public.
Using ink on paper and ink on Kozo paper adhered to canvas or linen, Skjolsvik renders calligraphic forms in repetition until he intuitively halts. The end product reflects controlled chaos or possibly a quiet spiritual quest. Whatever the interpretation, the titles may reference feelings of past or present, theory of mental inhibitions or ambitions and unpopular culture. The non-representational forms are not conscious abstractions of anything that he conceives of through premeditated processes; they are rather like documented feelings or behaviors created with a few simple materials.
Meditations from the Median will highlight mostly recent works from 2014 and 2015. One of the galleries will be devoted to the same body of work that spans twenty years. The older work will be the tiny journal like drawings created all over the country during his travels as a preparator for museums.
