Join JM Gallery Saturday, April 22, from 5 until 8 for our opening reception featuring ceramicist Linda Gossett.
JM Gallery is pleased to present a collection of porcelain assemblages by Linda Gossett. Starting with a curious cache of found objects, Linda recasts and playfully reassembles her material into talismanic figurines that appear both familiar and absurd. Mass-produced, plaster tchotchkes become refined collectibles in the style of 18th-century European ceramics—refined but nonsensical, as hands emerge from birds’ breasts, shoes grow out of a duck’s head on a deer’s body, and children’s legs run away with an eagle. This is an imagery of contrast meant to challenge our preconceptions. Where we normally expect to see cheap plaster knickknacks, we see light, fragile porcelain; but then, where we expect to see elegant subjects, we see new forms of absurdity and incongruity. With such contrasts, Linda questions cultural values—what do we value, what do we desire, and where does the desire for possession enter the conversation? As she explains, “I offer my art as a springboard for the imagination.”
|ABOUT JM GALLERY // JM Gallery offers works of art on paper and sculptural forms that engage both the eye and the mind. The gallery promotes artists who create smart, visually compelling work and showcases their art in a space that is inviting and accessible. JM Gallery is committed to working closely with artists as they develop their work and careers and to developing lasting relationships with collectors. In collaboration with area schools and non-profits, they enrich the creative community by teaching artists and collectors about navigating the complex world of art.

Reception Sunday, April 22, 2-4 pm
Twenty million Americans took to the streets on April 22, 1970 to protest the deterioration of their environment due to the ravages of the industrial revolution. By the end of that year, the first Earth Day had led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. By 1990, Earth Day was a global event, mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries. Today, in spite of climate change deniers and well-funded lobbyists, Earth Day has become the largest secular observance in the world, celebrated by more than a billion people every year, and a day of action that changes human behavior and provokes policy changes.
The TVAA Gallery once again celebrates Earth Day this April with an exhibit of art inspired by our concern for environmental issues.

Amélie Ducommun is a French-Swiss artist who lives and works in Barcelona. She was born in 1983 and graduated from Les Arts Décoratifs, Paris (ENSAD) and the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona. Ducommun’s striking paintings attempt to harness both the beauty and energy of natural landscapes. A seasoned traveler, the artist draws her creative inspiration from discovering new panoramas and exploring unfamiliar geographies. Much of her work focuses on the temporality and subjectivity of memory, foregrounding questions of perception and emotion,as well as the interrelation between natural elements. For Ducommun, truth can be found in first impressions, the fleeting moment when unfamiliarity compels a focus on emotional candor and unbiased observation.
Ducommun has participated in more than 60 exhibitions internationally, including Dak’art, and the Beijing Contemporary Art Biennale, and was silver medalist at the 9th painting games of the Francophonie in Nice. We are honored to represent Amelie Ducommun at WALL Gallery and invite you to this solo exhibition on view through May 12, 2017.

C12 PRESENTS A SOLO EXHIBITION
SHIFTING FANCY OF THE CROWD // WORKS BY HOWARD SHERMAN
ARTIST RECEPTION 01 APRIL 2017 | 6-9 PM
(ARTIST WILL BE IN ATTENDANCE)ON VIEW 25 MARCH – 6 MAY 2017
CIRCUIT 12 CONTEMPORARY, 1811 E. LEVEE ST, DALLAS TX, 75207
Howard Sherman received his Masters of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing from the University of North Texas in 2006. During his tenure at UNT, Sherman was fortunate enough to work with esteemed professor Vernon Fisher before Fisher’s retirement. It was during this time that the artist discovered and defined a visual language that has continued to evolve.
Sherman has been leading a new generation of bombastic contemporary painters in the Texas art world. His typically human-scale canvases carry traces of his background in cartooning, offsetting the loud, raw power of his aggressive paint strokes with a playful sense of humor. In contrast, the artist’s smaller works on paper reveal his intuitive use of material in a distilled, yet still assertive manner.
The large paintings facilitate the immense physicality within Sherman’s work, while leaving space for his keen sense of formal resolution. The frenetic and muscular heft of his work is balanced with a measured precision and a thoughtful integration of a number of historical art history influences. Sherman’s cartoonish figuration complements his bold use of abstract mark making which can be construed as portraits, punch lines or poems. He is constantly refining his visual and conceptual vocabulary, recently experimenting with sculptural surfaces and collage.
Only two years after completing his M.F.A., Sherman was featured in a solo traveling exhibition originating at the Art Museum of Southeast Texas. His work is in several museum collections and is on permanent display at Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas. The artist has been profiled numerous times in New American Paintings, appears in the 2010 book Texas Artists Today and was chosen for the cover of the recently released art history book Texas Abstract: Modern/Contemporary by Michael Paglia and Jim Edwards. Rice University is now collecting his personal artifacts for its research center.
In addition to his many accomplishments, Sherman continues to further his craft and studies. He has been awarded residencies at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts, School of Visual Arts, the McColl Center for Visual Art, Vermont Studio Center, Jentel Artist Residency Program and the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation.
Sherman has been in a number of solo exhibitions across the United States, and his work has been featured in group exhibitions in Texas, California, New York, Florida, Spain, India and Peru.
Sherman lives and works in Houston and New York City.

Mark Todd is a record collector and an artist who last year started painting his renditions of albums he was listening to in the studio each day.
With his illustrator, comic book style the albums each took on a new life and hilarity. We approached Mark about doing an exhibit like a true record fair, installed leaning up on the wall such as the racks of highly collected albums. He had enjoyed painting the records, but set out to create a record show with all fake records, true to his comic and zine style and cleverness.
Along with the records, we will have racks of rare books with artistic style and obscure subjects.

Kettle Art presents “Birds, Cats, Skulls, Yeah!” – Opening Reception: Thursday, March 30, 7:00-10:00pm
This group exhibition features many of our most prolific artists displaying fresh takes on three subject matters frequently gracing our walls. Birds have long been associated with freedom, spirits, messengers, prophecy, and feminine energies. Cats, in many cultures, represent power, creativity in spiritual matters, and resurrection. Hence, the mythology surrounding nine lives. Skulls represent life, death, and mortality. Three seemingly unrelated themes, bound by a common thread of devotion among creatives and enthusiasts.
Artists include: Erin Curry, Richard Ross, Brian Crawford, Katrina Rasmussen, Nicholas Williams, Erin Reeves, Johnny Hawkins, Jennifer Lafleur, Amber Campagna, Nick Glenn, Corey Godfrey, Clint Scism, Hilda Lafleur, Jeff Skele, George Wallace III, Amy Seymour, Bill Rogers, Steve Rainwater, Frank Campagna and many more.
The exhibit runs through Saturday, May 6.

YOUR PRIVATE COLLECTION ART GALLERY
Presents Jack Wolfsen at Last Saturday Gallery Night
March 25, 5-8pm
Jack Wolfsen, award-winning sculptor, creates his imaginative works using wood, bronze, steel and cement. Wall décor, single-standing sculptures and furniture are all part of this successful artist’s work. He is recognized for his work with barbed wire and has received many awards for his creations of old, barbed wire scavenged from Texas Ranches. His tree sculptures begin with barbed wire and are reborn in natural art.
How does Wolfsen feel as he creates each piece? “‘Enjoyment’ is the word that comes to mind,” he said. “I never get tired of the look on people’s faces when they are in awe and discover that the sculpture is made of recycled barbed wire.”
Life scenes, like “Finishing Touches,” are created with hundreds feet of wire and welds.
One of his sculptures, which contained over 3300 welds, won an award at the Texas State Fair
Art Competition. He has competed in many art shows, including the Rio Brazos Art Exhibition and the Stars Over Texas competition. Wolfsen was recently honored with ‘Best of Show” at the prestigious, juried Breckenridge Fine Art National and International competition and show in Breckenridge, Texas.
Linda Watkins, Co-owner of Your Private Collection, believes that, “Good art should make you feel something. For example, does it evoke excitement, peace, relaxation? Does it remind you of a past experience, a moment or a place? With Jack Wolfsen, one definitely feels a range of emotions.”

The Artists Showplace Gallery is delighted to host one of the premier art events of the season. Plein Air Southwest Salon is a juried competition, exhibition and sale sponsored by the Outdoor Painters Society and showcased every April in Dallas. The annual event seeks to promote an appreciation for the process of en plen air, which is French for “in open air”.

The exhibit runs from April 8 to May 13. The opening reception and presentation of awards will take place on Saturday, April 8, from 3:00 to 6:00. On Sunday, April 9, the gallery will be open from 1:00 to 5:00, with artist demonstrations from 2:00 to 4:00.

Exhibition Title: Simeen Farhat: ‘Blood Shot is Blood Loved’
Exhibition Dates: April 1, 2017 — May 6, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, April 1st from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Cris Worley Fine Arts, Dallas TX crisworley.com
Cris Worley Fine Arts is proud to present Blood Shot is Blood Loved, our second solo exhibition with Simeen
Farhat, opening with an artist’s reception on Saturday, April 1st, from 5 to 8 p.m. Blood Shot is Blood Loved will include a large-scale installation along with various multi-dimensional wall reliefs. The exhibition will be on view through May 6, 2017. In her work, Farhat often uses cast resin and acrylic to make intimately poetic sculptures that engage participants in the act of deciphering between material form and shadow, much like the process of deriving meaning from sensory perception; a visual analogue to the brutally nuanced struggle of human communication.
Inspiration for Blood Shot is Blood Loved began with Farhat’s poetic meditations on the dual nature of one of the most vital elements in the natural world—blood. As the artist writes, “I leave my traces many times. I can be either hot or cold. People both love and hate me—I scare them off; but they need me, too. My name is Blood.” In this installation, Farhat re-creates the moment a large-scale drop of blood hits ground, capturing the reverberating effects released by a passionate burst of energy. The ardent drop of blood is assembled from abstracted epigraphic forms, a signature of Farhat’s body of work. The direct metaphor with the liquid materiality of the human body evokes a realm of ideas inhabited by her previous works: A Teardrop in Disperse (2015), A Bubble Bursts (2015), and A Red Drop of Blood (2015). By rendering one example of the un-deniability of the human body, Blood Shot is Blood Loved quietly implicates the dichotomy between purity of life, and abject realities of violence that suppress human volition, globally. Mimicking the quality of blood as a provocative substance, the installation invites the viewer to actively explore the blood droplet as it spills into the gallery space.
Simeen Farhat was born in Karachi, Pakistan. She has lived and worked in the U.S. since 1992, receiving her BFA from Arizona State University, and her MFA from Texas Christian University. Her work has been exhibited globally in Austria, France, Germany, India, Singapore, Taiwan, the UK, at the National Art Gallery in Pakistan, and the Sharjah Museum of Modern Art, among others. Farhat participated in the 2009 Texas Biennial; In 2012 she was an Artist in Residence at the ORYX Foundation in Switzerland; and in 2015 she was invited to participate in an exhibition at the 56th Venice Biennale, In the Eye of the Thunderstorm: Effervescent Practices from the Arab World. Farhat’s work is represented in the Crown Prince of UAE’s Abu Dhabi Palace Collection, The U.S. Consulate in Jeddah, The Four Seasons Hotel in Dubai, and the Peninsula Hotel in Paris.

A big THANK YOU to all the LGAA members that submitted work for the Spring Show Poster. You will see them hung around the historic square and around town. The decision was difficult and we were looking for work that paired up well visually with another piece. The decision was so difficult that we are going to use TWO posters this year. Congratulations to Pam Tullos, Telise Rodelv, James Stewart and Jill Randall.
