About the Exhibit & Artists
Four local artists of different ethnicities and backgrounds from the Dallas area come together to invite people to have an experience that is both individual and unique, yet shared and similar to every viewer. This is the metaphor we are using as the overall message of how our life experiences are separate and different, yet we still understand the lessons and meanings learned and can share them with one another. The plan to accomplish this is by creating a literal timeline from birth to death, allowing the viewer to navigate chronologically forward or backwards at their leisure for understanding. Each artist use their own style of art to portray an era of life that is vital to personal identity, and how they are interconnected with each other.

The word “Disciplined” befits our struggles during life and how much better we become because of them. It is the form of how life has structured us and how we have transformed ourselves, learning from each previous era of life that creates a solid understanding that is taken to the next. The artists each have their own individual experiences that they express with their pieces, which both relate to how they perceive life and connect to the other artists’ pieces as the narrative progresses. Raymond’s work depicts his childhood and the longing for the happier times he enjoyed watching cartoons and playing with friends in the housing complex he grew up in. Robert’s pieces represent the trials of growing into adulthood from adolescence, and finding one’s place in life despite all the chaos of societal expectations and norm. Daniel expresses in his pieces the point in life where one has some understanding of the desired path in life and what obstacles lie in the way of personal growth, such as politics and religion, as well as realizing the truths behind life’s veils and illusions. Azn’s work depicts his understanding of mortality and what lies after death, and reflects on all the experiences that lead up to that point that provide clarity for the questions in life; experiences that answer the “why” only after meditation. The use of black and white in these pieces represents the moments in our life that affect our perspectives, and the pink represents the significance of those moments and our connection through them.

This show is the unified vision that exemplifies the idea that despite all different experiences, people can come together to share their thoughts and perspectives and move forward together.

THANK ART: A Pop Up Show About Artistic Gratitude call for artists

THANK ART: A Pop Up Show About Artistic Gratitude

Webpage for the show is at http://www.thankart.tumblr.com. The deadline for entering is November 1, 2017. The exhibition runs from November 6 to November 12 2017 with a reception on November 10, 2017.

Art has been an experience that has encompassed many meanings for me. Inspiration, escape, freedom, chance and dreams. I’m thankful for art for its diverse nature and how its significance has adapted to me as I’ve progressed through life.

Why do you THANK ART?

I’m inviting artists to share their interpretation of the theme THANK ART for an upcoming fall pop up show. Artists with work that meditates on the appreciation of the creative process in its various forms and guises are encouraged to submit. The expression of artistic gratitude in the work does not have to be explicit and can be defined in loose terms.

For instance, thankfulness for an artwork can be expressed because of its emotional experience or thankfulness can be expressed because the process of making a work offered some relief. There are no limits to your depiction of gratitude.

The exhibition will be on view at Dr. Jeckyll’s Beer Lab on 2420 West Park Row, Pantego, TX 76013.

If you’re interested in exhibiting please send three images of your work along with a short artist’s statement that describes how your relates to the theme of THANK ART TO Kim at submitarttokim@gmail.com.
