Alternative Process Photography Artist Talk June 17 at JM Gallery

jmgalleryphotographers

Join JM Gallery tomorrow Saturday, June 17, at 1:30 for an artist talk with photographers Peter Blackburn, Amy Holmes George, Frank Lopez, Kathy Lovas, and Susan Sponsler-Carstarphen.

JM Gallery is excited to work with photographer and teacher Frank Lopez in presenting an exhibition of works by local photographers who explore the limits of technology and chemistry through experimental processes that challenge our notions of how photographs are made. These artists use a variety of processes—some old, some new, and some in combination—to create images that cannot be reproduced using standard methods. Frank, for example, scratches, tears, and bleaches exposed Polaroid film and then scans and retouches the images to create abstract works that illustrate the process itself. Susan Sponsler-Carstarphen offers cyanotype images on fabric that recall ancient “wanted” posters, but present portraits of men and women standing up for victims of racial profiling and police brutality. Amy Holmes George’s ziatype prints are still lifes composed of babies, duckies, ring toys, and children’s clothing that appear at once concrete and dreamlike; familiar, yet strangely haunting. Kathy Lovas presents Police Blotter, an artist’s book in which Polaroid pinhole photographs of newspaper crime reports, school photos, and encyclopedia texts are layered to pose the questions: “Who will become a criminal?” and “Who will become a victim?” And Peter Blackburn works with gum bichromate printing, a 19th-century technique that produces rich, painterly images, to capture the energy of dance.

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.

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!

Frida Kahlo on view at PDNB Gallery

Kahlo by Muray

Nickolas Muray, Frida Painting “The Two Fridas”, c. 1939

FRIDA KAHLO

March 1 – April 15, 2017

Simultaneously with the Dallas Museum of Art’s highly anticipated exhibition, “Mexico 1900-1950: Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Jose Clemente Orozco, and the Avant-Garde”, PDNB Gallery will be exhibiting a special selection of photographs of the influential Mexican Surrealist painter and icon, Frida Kahlo.
PDNB Gallery, 154 Glass Street, Suite 104, Dallas, TX 75207
The exhibition will highlight the playful and candid portraits of Frida taken by artist and close companion, Lucienne Bloch(1909-1999).
Lucienne Bloch,
Frida Biting her Necklace, 1933
By an encounter with the great Mexican muralist, Diego Rivera, Bloch was subsequently introduced to Frida, and the two developed a deep friendship. During Diego’s turbulent stay in the United States, Bloch became an important figure in Frida’s life, helping her overcome a number of obstacles that would later reflect in the artist’s most important paintings. Bloch would also document many of Diego’s prominent mural works including “Unity Panel” at the New Workers School in New York, 1933, (included in the exhibition) and the only surviving photographs of the controversial Rockefeller Center mural, which was destroyed in 1934.
Also featured in this exhibition are the vibrant color and black & white photographs of Frida Kahlo by the master photographer and Frida’s long time lover, Nickolas Muray(1892-1965). Throughout their ten years on and off affair, Muray would photograph Frida during his visits to Mexico and while she was in New York for her solo exhibition at the Julian Levy Gallery. The images included by Muray reveal the eccentric, colorful and forceful figure that was Frida through both candid moments and studio settings.
The powerful work of the artist, Delilah Montoya(1955), paying homage to Frida, through surrealist and alternative photographic processes will also be featured.
This exhibition will be on view from March 1 – April 15, 2017.
Nickolas Muray, Frida Kahlo, 1939

Photography Exhibit: And They Say Of Her Woman| Angelika Ejtel

Angelika_Ejtel_On The Edge of Passing_PROM_pic 5

The Fort Worth Community Arts Center is pleased to announce the opening reception for self-portrait photographer Angelika Ejtel’s exhibition “And They Say Of Her Woman”.

Inspired by the poetry of a famous Polish poet H.  Poswiatowska, in this exhibition of self-portraits, Angelika Ejtel integrates the images that belong to her most feminine works. They encompass the motifs of dark love, never-ending longing and hidden desires. Woman and her intimate world(s) portrayed in the poems of Poswiatowska, takes the face and body of the artist in her photographs. This is just a tiny study of what womanhood is in its broad spectrum of meanings.

Angelika uses herself as a subject for her images. She considers her photographic creation as a poetic experience in which she drowns and infuses herself and, as a result, it gives her the feeling that she is reborn with each portrait into a new being. Although, all of her photographs are self-portraits, they shouldn’t be necessarily read as self-presentations, rather they should be revealed as the multiplicity of “selves” available to one individual. To put it succinctly, her attitude towards the self is more of an exploratory journey between an awareness of self and an unawareness of some aspects of oneself.

The exhibition will be on view from March 4th through March 22nd, 2017.

Please, join us at ART 7 Gallery in Fort Worth, TX for a complementary reception, and meet the artist on Thursday, March 9th from 6 to 8 PM.

“Through the Lens: Found Object/Readymade” at CentralTrak

UTDcentraltrak

“Through the Lens: Found Object/Readymade”

Saturday, January 21st from 8pm-10pm
CentralTrak presents
Through the Lens: Found Object/Readymade curated by UT Dallas photography and aesthetic studies professor Marilyn Waligore and will feature artists
Susi Brister, Francesca Brunetti, Rachel Cox, Shannon Duncan, Paho Mann, and Kristy Peet.
Guided by Surrealist and Dada practices of the 20th century, contemporary artists use photography and video to document two categories of objects: the found object and the readymade. The designation of the readymade upsets the mass-produced object’s functionality: engaging in play while disrupting work; incorporating humor; challenging the definition of art by presenting works that are ready-to-go — chosen and then recontextualized. Meanwhile, the identification of the found object connects to the unconscious, often tapping the historical context of a previous era, the supposed recollections of a previous owner, which informs the current viewer’s awareness. These actions address the concept of authorship, the definition of art, and the place of the object in commodity culture. The use of photography and video in contemporary art to re-present the object frames it a second time, echoing the relationship between selection and presentation of the object and image.


Events during the run of the exhibition will include two panel discussions with the artists.

Thursday, February 2 at 7pm
will include Rachel Cox, Paho Mann, and Kristy Peet.
Thursday, February 9 at 7pm
will have Susi Brister, Francesca Brunetti, and Shannon Duncan.

Tyler Shields: Provocateur opens Jan. 7

tyler-shields-prada-popcorn

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.

FOCUS: Lorna Simpson at THE MODERN

moveableness_2015_lsimpson_detail3_reduced

 

The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth Presents

FOCUS: Lorna Simpson  

November 19, 2016 – January 15, 2017

 

The FOCUS series is organized by the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth for the Director’s Council, a group that supports acquisitions at the Museum. The series features three solo exhibitions annually, organized by Assistant Curator Alison Hearst. FOCUS exhibitions are open to the public and are included in general museum admission: $10 for adults; $4 for seniors (60+) and students with identification; free for children 12 and under; free for Modern members. 
Since the beginning of her career in the mid-1980s, Lorna Simpson has become known for her conceptual photographs and videos that question the nature of representation, and challenge historical and preconceived views of racial and sexual identity. Rooted in her longstanding interest in photography and photographic collage, Simpson’s recent paintings incorporate found imagery, often taken from AP photographs and vintage magazines, which the artist overpaints and divides across several panels. These paintings continue to investigate identity, while also confronting current events both public and private. FOCUS: Lorna Simpson is the first museum exhibition to feature the artist’s acrylic, ink, and silkscreened paintings.
One motif featured consistently throughout the all-new works created for FOCUS: Lorna Simpson is photographs of women taken from issues of Ebony magazine from the 1950s to 1970s. On Ebony, Simpson states, “For me, the images hearken back to my childhood, but are also a lens through which to see the past fifty years in American history.” For this exhibition, the Ebony images are collaged with dissimilar Associated Press photos featuring natural elements, such as fire, water, and ice, which often signal disaster and upheaval (either natural or manmade), as seen in her largest works to date, Famous Statue Damn and Famous Statue Volcano [both 2016]. These two paintings have a mirrored foreground image that features a woman’s head from a wig ad placed on a nude female sculpture; however, the works have disparate backgrounds – one illustrates an overflowing dam, while the other depicts a smoking volcano. Taken out of their original editorial or advertising contexts, the images are combined and abstracted to create new meaning. Famous Statue Damnsuggests the recent floods in Haiti, and the smoke cloud in Famous Statue Volcano connects to the plumes from riots following police brutality past and present that Simpson has more explicitly illustrated in other related works from this year.
Another series in the exhibition features close-ups of the heads of women from wig ads in Ebony magazine. In place of their hair are spiky ice formations, as seen in Head on Ice #2, 2016. Ice repeats in several of the works and is symbolic of endurance. As Simpson states, “It’s like this notion of the persistence needed for living under ice – one cannot survive in the cold, but then, don’t we live in intolerable, impossible political times and expect to survive?”
Lorna Simpson was born in Brooklyn, where she continues to live and work. She received a BFA in photography from the School of Visual Arts, New York, and an MFA in visual arts from the University of California, San Diego. Simpson has exhibited extensively, both nationally and internationally, including recent solo exhibitions at the Jeu de Paume, Paris; Brooklyn Museum; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. Simpson has participated in distinguished international exhibitions such as Documenta 8 and 11, Kassel, Germany, and the 44th and 56th Venice Biennales; in 1990, she was the first African-American woman to exhibit work in the Venice Biennale.

Reflections . . .

_rjz02614-copy

I recently had the pleasure of viewing the current art exhibition at the Kimball Art Museum, Monet: The Early Years.  The exhibition includes paintings that concentrate on the first phase of Claude Monet’s illustrative career.  The young genius was well on his way in artistic development and imagination as is evident by the caliber of the paintings.

I was most captivated with Monet’s paintings of water and reflections given my own enjoyment of capturing reflections with my camera.  Monet’s obsession with the painting of water and reflections was apparent by his keen ability to capture its many changing effects and moods.  Something I can truly appreciate as the slightest change in your camera position or the wind on the surface of the water can produce a profound change in your image.

I would like to believe Monet would have appreciated the photograph that you see.  It is a reflection of a stone building on a meandering stream.  Captured during a partly sunny morning using a Nikon D810 camera with a Nikon 300mm f4 Phase Fresnel lens.  Exposure was f10 @1/25 second; which was slow enough to allow the ripples on the water to create the intent I desired.

Kalee Appleton
Platinum Package
 
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.
Valerie Powell
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.

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

Upstairs Project Space
Arbitrary Ambition – curated by

Rachel Livedalen
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.

Ed Kashi Near and Far Photography Workshop

ed-kashi-workshop-dallas-center-for-photography-07

Photographer Ed Kashi is a member of the highly respected VII Photo Agency and is known for his penetrating and insightful photography on social and political issues both domestic and international. He is equally renowned for his workshops, which challenge photographers at all skill levels to devote their time and talents to create compelling stories through pictures. As he has told previous workshop attendees “We’re all here because we love photography but for each of us it means something different.”

DCP is happy to bring Ed back to Dallas to lead a workshop on the concept of Working Near and Far. Over four days you’ll meet at the studio and go out in the field to discover what photography means to you in the context of visual story telling. Some of the ideas and topics that Ed will explore with you:

  • Near: Photographing a detail in your home that tells where you live and what you do to.
  • Personal history: Telling a story in pictures of your own life.
  • Keeping in close: How to approach and photograph someone you have access to.
  • Finding the exotic in your own back yard: “You don’t have to go to Afghanistan to make great pictures.”
  • Far: discussing how photography can report and affect geopolitical issues.
  • How social media and image sharing platforms like Instagram can be used to curate and publish visual stories.

When: February 1 -5, 2017

Where: Dallas Center for Photography

Cost: Early registration (ends January 3 at 11:55pm) is $975. Late registration is $1125.
