Dallas Piranha Printmakers at Mighty Fine Arts

Opening Reception
Saturday, August 12 at 6 PM – 9 PM

Location: Mighty Fine Arts 409A N.Tyler in Oak Cliff TX 75208

Mighty Fine Arts presents “Dallas Piranha Printmakers” curated by Matt Bagley, master printmaker and head honcho of Iron Frog Press, and featuring work by Courtney Googe, Brian McClure, Terri Thoman, Josh Monroe, Erica Guajardo, Mirka Hokkanen, Junanne Peck, Evita Tezeno, Una Scott, Chris Merlick, Lindsay Burris, Jack Russell, Angela Faz, Gary Uribe, Viktor Otrix, Paul “Arte Chambers” Robey, Scott Krakowski, Amber Crimmings and Matt Bagley.

“Dallas Piranha Printmakers” opens a window onto the burgeoning Dallas print maker community. Printmakers nationwide are experiencing a Renaissance and Dallas is no exception. Despite the lack of any central studio or hub print shop printmakers here have managed to create their own cultural millieu. To be certain these are old school print crafters eschewing digital and electronic technologies in favor of handmade, hand pulled manual dexterity and acumen. This is a DIY world done in home spaces, garage studios or spare closets, wherever an ink slinger can get away with making a mess.But like a pool of piranha they’re hungry for acknowledgement and want to take a bite out of your attention. So come out and support your local print artists and marvel at their virtuosity and fresh creative visions while enhancing your art knowledge of print techniques! Jump in the pool with some accomodating piranha who don’t bite but might want to share an art bone with you!

This show will open Sat, Aug 12 and will run till Sun. Sept.24.

Kathleen Wilke

Through April 30, 2016

Meet the Artist:
Saturday, March 12, 2016
(7-9 PM)

Silent Witness is a recent exhibition of art by Dallas photographer, Kathleen Wilke. The series, presented at the White Rock Lake Museum, features a collection of photographs that highlight the beauty, mystery, and allure of the lake.

Kathleen, an award-winning artist, has been celebrated for her underwater portraits, which have received enthusiastic praise for their ability to conjure up a graceful and spellbinding surrealistic world that the artist manages to create every time she sets out to capture the beauty and personality of her subjects. Despite the popularity of her portraits, Kathleen decided to put her underwater photography gear aside momentarily in order to focus her attention completely on producing this museum series, which was designed to document various aspects of life at or near White Rock Lake.

Texas Printmaking Exhibit at TWU – Flatbed Press & Peregrine Press

Miller_Water Spirits

Texas Printmaking – Selections from Flatbed Press / Austin & Peregrine Press / Dallas.

Exhibition Dates: September 24 to October 21, 2015

Reception: September 29, 5-7 pm

Lecture by Annalise Gratovich / Gallery Assistant at Flatbed Press:

September 29, 4-5 pm / West Gallery, Fine Arts Building, TWU in Denton

 

TWU Department of Visual Arts welcomes two of Texas’ prominent print publishing presses in a dual exhibition. Flatbed Press from Austin, Texas and Peregrine Press from Dallas, Texas. The works are a representation of printmaking in Texas from 1981 to today.

Flatbed Press – founded in 1989 by Katherine Brimberry and Mark L. Smith – is located in Austin, Texas in an 18,000 sq. ft. warehouse that was redeveloped in 1999 as a community of creative professionals. Visitors have compared the aesthetics of the space to New York City’s Chelsea-district warehouse galleries.

Since 1990 Flatbed Press has worked with over 200 artists to create etchings, lithographs, relief prints and monotypes. Flatbed Press, as publisher, has a portion of all these projects in their collection, and it is deep with amazing work. Some of the works chosen for this exhibition are by internationally and locally known artists who have worked in Austin at Flatbed Press. Among the artists showing will be Sterling Allen, Katherine Brimberry, Ann Conner, Suzi Davidoff, Teresa Gomez-Martorell, Melissa Miller, Dan Rizzie, Larry Scholder, James Surls, Randy Twaddle and others.

Peregrine Press – A Texas Legacy of printmaking, Peregrine Press existed for over ten years in Dallas, first at the studio and gallery located at Peak and Ross just east of downtown Dallas and later at a larger studio in Deep Ellum on Main Street.  Founded in 1981 by Mike and Jo Ann Hart with Gerry Lemke, Peregrine Press was one of the first fine art presses in Texas. The Harts and Lemke established their press with a commitment to collaborate with the emerging and established artists that lived and worked in Texas. Being located in Dallas gave Peregrine access to a group of young artists which included David Bates, John Alexander, Ed and Linda Blackburn, Dan Rizzie and also brought in seasoned Texas artists such as Otis Dozier, Joseph Glasco and Robert Gordy as well as many others.  Artists from outside the Texas realm also came to their door, including a memorable collaboration with Jean-Michel Basquiat.

At the end of the ten years of work, over 600 titles (editions and monotypes) with over 90 artists had been created.  The prints reveal the decade of the 80’s through the lens of the artists working at Peregrine. The prints exhibited here represent a small selection of the work that was created.
