About the Artist: http://www.ro2art.com/carol-trice-short-story-series.html/

Carol Trice’s textile paintings evoke a familiar sensation of connectedness, illustrating the intersections and ties that are found in interpersonal relationships. Her bold, thick lines are emblematic of the fleeting and the sometimes intense interactions that people encounter on a regular basis. Her works are made using dense black thread that intersects and laces along a gridded background. Some of the pieces are methodical while others are disorderly, mimicking the experience of human interaction, whether brief or prolonged. Carol Trice’s pieces are exquisitely representative of daily colloquies.

THE OAK CLIFF SOCIETY OF FINE ARTS – TURNER HOUSE ANNOUNCES 5th ANNUAL “RISING STAR” EXHIBITION & FUNDRAISER

Event Will Showcase Emerging Artists Nominated by Top Dallas Galleries

 

DALLAS – July 17, 2017 The Oak Cliff Society of Fine Arts – Turner House will present its fifth “Rising Star” exhibition and fundraiser September 16 and 17 at the historic Oak Cliff home. Several prestigious Dallas galleries have each nominated one emerging Texas artist who is not yet represented by a gallery to be in the group show.

 

A fundraiser reception will be held Saturday, September 16 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. and will feature speaker Katherine Wagner, Business Council for the Arts. Ticket prices are $85 per person ($50 for Oak Cliff Society of Fine Arts members.) Sponsorships are available and tickets may be purchased at the door. A public reception will be Sunday, September 17 from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. at Turner House, 401 N. Rosemont, Dallas, 75208.

 

According to artist Kenda North, co-chair of the event, the 100-year-old Turner House has a long history of showcasing Texas artists.  “Rising Star is an effort to continue that tradition and draw attention to some exciting new artists who are just beginning to gain attention in the art community, including such past Rising Stars as Diana Antohe, Spencer Evans, and Shawn Samuell,” she said.

 

Turner House has been hosting art exhibits for more than 100 years, including recent exhibits highlighting works of The Dallas Nine, Women Artists of the Texas Centennial, and works by contemporary Oak Cliff artists. Located in the Winnetka Heights section of Oak Cliff, Turner House promotes the arts, celebrates life events, fosters community connections, and preserves history. It is known for its annual Salon Series, celebrating music, art, and architecture, as well as free community-focused events such as Movies on the Lawn. The organization received the 2013 Stewardship Award from Preservation Dallas for its decades-long commitment to historic preservation.

Thematic Challenge: All You Need is Love & Art
In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of “The Summer of Love” and Irving Arts Center’s “Summer of ’17,” participating artists are invited to create artwork which explores the theme of “All You Need is Love & Art.” Characterized by the spirit of revolution and social change, the 1960s were a turbulent and exciting time.  Through the works of those artists who choose to find inspiration in this theme, we hope to capture a bit of the culture, music and art of this most groovy decade.   Special prizes will be awarded to member artists who choose to compete in this category (note – this is completely optional).

FUTURE GLOW Reception Sept. 9th at Cris Worley

 

FUTURE GLOW
SEPTEMBER 9 – OCTOBER 7, 2017
Opening Reception:  
Saturday, September 9th from 5pm – 8pm
Cris Worley Fine Arts
1845 Levee St. #110
Dallas, TX 75207
Cris Worley Fine Arts is proud to present Future Glow, our third solo exhibition with Trey Egan, opening with an artist’s reception on Saturday, September 9th, from 5 to 8 p.m. Future Glow will include large-scale paintings in oil on canvas. The exhibition will be on view through October 7.
Trey Egan’s abstract compositions are known primarily for their method of creation, in which Egan translates the rhythms of contemporary electronic music into rich channels of color. This working method allows Egan to delve into his subconscious and deconstruct the digitally produced musical compositions, then re-materialize the sounds in pigmented tactile maneuvers. His work creates an effect of self-organized, indefinite, organic bursts on canvas, reminiscent of formative 20th century abstract expressionist painters.
According to the artist, “I have been thinking about the layering of sounds in a musical composition and how they can be compared to the layers of my paintings.” The bliss Egan finds in electronic genres, such as progressive trance, future bass, and liquid dubstep, allows him to continue the development of a singular visual language that deals with the relationship between the subconscious and physical space. His energetic canvases invite the viewer to perceive the lush swatches of color, activating their own memories and experiences.
Trey Egan gained his Master of Fine Art in 2013 from the University of North Texas College of Visual Art and
Design. Following Egan’s debut in 2012 at ArtHouston he was selected to exhibit at the 2013 Texas Biennial in San Antonio. Egan has participated in many juried group exhibitions including some juried by: Peter Doroshenko (Executive Director, Dallas Contemporary), Toby Kamps (Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, The Menil Collection), Clint Willour (Curator Emeritus, Galveston Arts Center), and artists Annette Lawrence, Vincent Falsetta, and Erick Swenson among others. His work can be found in numerous private and public collections including Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP, Kristin Farmer Autism Center, The Landes Group, Trive Capital, and the UT Southwestern William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital.

July 1st Reception for Johannes Boekhoudt, Kenneth Burris, and Doug Gray

Join JM Gallery Saturday, July 1, from 5 until 8 for our opening reception featuring work from Johannes Boekhoudt, Kenneth Burris, and Doug Gray.

Join us this summer as we look back and enjoy a collection of works that explore meaning through abstraction. Doug Gray’s avian forms reduce nature to its essence in both shape and spirit. Arranged in groups, these ceramic birds portray—and evoke—human emotion, as they confirm the enduring power of human connection in the face of adversity. Johannes Boekhoudt similarly distills a range of emotions in his black and white drawings. He attacks the paper with forceful, aggressive lines, some of which coalesce into self portraits of an artist in a passionate struggle to find his place in the world, while others reveal a seemingly inescapable conflict between rich and poor, rulers and ruled, the elite and the common. In contrast to the explosive, spontaneous strokes of Johannes’s works, the lines in Kenneth Burris’s drawings are finely drawn and meticulously detailed. The images they convey, however, are no less expressive and no less powerful. Kenneth presents urban landscapes that combine realistic imagery (skyscrapers, power lines, satellite dishes) with fantastical details (pyramids, thorn trees, fishermen) that force us to question how we perceive our own “real” worlds. Each of these artists shares an ability to see past the surface and to express the essence of his subjects.

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.

A native of Dallas, Metcalf says that at the turn of the 21st century, she found herself in fervent need of self-expression. Completely self-taught, she views painting as a “catharsis for the soul”, giving her a sense of creativity, peace and joy. Her work is bold in color and texture and reflects the mood of the moment.

Woodturning Art Exhibit in June at The Artists Showplace Gallery: Reception June 17

woodturnersjune

The Artists Showplace Gallery is pleased to present the stunning work of nationally recognized woodturners Kevin Bassett and Gary Sanders from Saturday, June 3, to Friday, June 30. A reception to meet the artists will be held on Saturday, June 17, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served.

Kevin Bassett’s interest in the art of woodturning evolved from his extensive study of plant pathology in his home state of Colorado, followed by a distinguished 40-plus-year career as a certified arborist. He describes his work as a collaboration with nature. “Even though I choose the shape, form and utility of a piece of a tree, ultimately the tree has its own voice. I am only a conduit through which the tree is able to speak.”

Gary Sanders, a retired firefighter from Greenville, Texas, began woodturning professionally in 1993. His artwork has been accepted into national juried woodturning exhibitions, and he has work in private collections and museums. Gary teaches locally and has conducted woodturning demonstrations across the country and in Australia. He is known for his finishing techniques and his eye for detail.

Caroline Mousseau: Surrounding Isolations opens June 16 at CYDONIA

FORT WORTH – CYDONIA is pleased to announce the return of Caroline Mousseau in her second solo exhibition Surrounding Isolations. The exhibition opens onFriday, June 16, 2017 and runs until Saturday, July 29, 2017. A reception will take place on June 16, from 6 to 8 in the evening at 2955 Crockett Street, Fort Worth, 76107.

CYDONIA concludes its 2016-17 exhibition year with Caroline Mousseau, the last in our all-female year of programing. The artist’s style is immediately recognizable: repetitive, thick, impasto-like brushstrokes of manipulated oil paints are painstakingly applied in repetitive strokes. The merit of her paintings is not determined by the optical experience for the viewer alone, but Mousseau also incorporates a dialogue about textures and possibilities of paint itself. Powdered pigments mixed with linseed oil are manipulated to stand on her will. Squeezed out of tube, paint is amorphous, but the artist molds, sculpts, and controls the medium to her exacting vision. Tiny, dried ridges of stacked paint lean towards the viewer in a masterful display of uniformity.

The artist describes her latest series: “These works do not strive to capture the landscape, as painting often has attempted to throughout history, but rather to exist within it.” Mousseau’s inspiration comes from the ambiguity that can be found when one cannot fully comprehend her surroundings. For her, this is the point at which representation and abstraction intersect, and the viewer can begin to “deconstruct the process of observation.” Viewing landscape, like abstraction, is an exercise in perception, noting that repetition is a recurring feature within nature.

Painting, in and of itself, is not only a medium, it is the monolithic genre within art. By choosing to work in painting, Mousseau implicitly negotiates the long history between painting, landscape, and abstraction. Applying derivative elements of these sub genres, she is able to create hybrid works. Her works are as stylistically lyrical in composition as they are Greenberg-ian in application. The Vancouverite carefully composes a large mass of undulating, ribbon-like trails on an exposed underpainting. The plane of the canvas where a viewer enters and exits is clearly demarcated. Paint doesn’t strive to be something other than itself. Weaving in and out of its own properties, each painting represents two types of the medium’s viscosity. The underpainting is flat, the material gliding on the canvas with ease; the dominant abstraction represents the second less-fluid state of paint’s materiality. Her attention to the materiality of paint demonstrates self-evident process and resulting interconnectedness to the optical experience. Her use of color is autonomous from propelling these gestures towards any true sense of representation, with palates stemming from the environs of her hometown, Winnipeg, as well as Vancouver. Titles add a playful and evocative overtone that summons imagination.

This exhibition is supported by the Fort Worth Arts Council.

Caroline Mousseau graduated as the valedictorian of Emily Carr University of Art + Design in 2012. She studied at l’École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in 2010. Mousseau has exhibited throughout Canada, and in 2014, she was curated in the exhibition 100 Painters of Tomorrow, with an eponymous book launch, in London and New York. In March 2015, CYDONIA mounted Mousseau’s first solo exhibition. The artist was met with strong Canadian support for her solo presentation at Art Toronto 2016. In February 2017, she was curated in a two-person presentation at Zona Maco in Mexico City entitled Another Chance to Do Right: Emerging Aesthetics Featuring Repetition, Pattern, and Rhythm. In April 2017, Mousseau was curated in her first museum appearance, abNext: Contemporary Abstraction by Emerging Canadian Artists, at the Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Oshawa, Ontario.

Patrick Turk: The Demiurge Exhibition opens June 17 at Mystic Lyon

Exhibition Title: Patrick Turk: The Demiurge Exhibition Dates: June 17 – October 17, 2017 Opening Reception: Saturday, June 17th from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Please join us in celebration of artist Patrick Turk’s new public art installation, The Demiurge, made possible by an Individual Artist Grant Award, funded by the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance. An opening reception will be held, Saturday, June 17th, from 6-9pm. The installation will be on view through Saturday, October 17th at Mystic Lyon in Houston, TX.

The Demiurge is the builder of the Universe and all things material. It is the force through which Everything is conceived and created. It is atomic and molecular. It is liquid, gas, and solid. It is bacteria, amoeba, and fungi. It is plants, animals and all of us.

Quasi-scientist and self-taught artist, Patrick Turk explores the mysteries of the universe in his highly detailed and imaginative hand-cut paper assemblages. Images taken from any number of resources including: science- fiction novels, encyclopedias, history and scientific diagrams, are cut and assembled in oftentimes multidimensional surfaces to create a curious and dark narrative. Says Turk, “The intense levels of detail become a microcosm, forming a reflection of the human relationship to the plasticity of time and space, and to the process of self-unfolding.”

Patrick Turk was born in Galveston, Texas and lives and works in Houston. His assemblages have been exhibited throughout Houston in galleries including Art Storm, Lawndale Art Center and Rudolph/Projects/Art Scan as well as galleries in Galveston, Texas and Los Angeles, California. In 2013, he was an Artist in Residence at the Lawndale Art Center. His works have been published several times in Mung Being Magazine and include high profile commissions for the 2009 Houston Art Car Parade Poster as well as the Philokalia album cover by Golden Cities. Patrick Turk is one of 60 artists included in the 2016 book, The Art of Found Objects: Interviews with Texas Artists (Texas A&M Press), authored Robert Craig Bunch.

“Flow”: Fluid Abstracts by Mary Galbraith opens June 17 at Frisco Fine Art

Mary Galbraith

Frisco Fine Art welcomes local abstract artist Mary Galbraith in the exhibit “Flow”, from June 17 to July 1. A reception to meet the artist will be held on Saturday, June 17, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.

The exhibit will showcase her most recent work: stunning, fluid acrylic paintings that evoke both calm and movement. Galbraith has a solid foundation in nearly every medium. As early as high school, she was participating in painting workshops throughout Texas and became an accomplished photorealistic artist. Now an advocate for experimentation, she broke from the tight constraints of photorealism to explore the looseness and abandon of fluid acrylics.  “Now that I’ve finally stepped out of my self-imposed box, I’ve never felt more free.”

Artist Statement

I am always conscious of my place in the landscape and my impact on the environment. In my work I respond to visual influences that reflect time through cyclical natural processes. My work has been influenced by information gathered at various “sites”, places in the natural environment that I have responded to visually. The connection of the natural in conjunction with mechanized systems that we as humans are a part of, influence my work.  I am interested in how we as human beings in the 21st century interact with the landscape. We often have the best intentions in mind but in actuality we cause more harm than good. Through the tangible experiences that shape our lives we see life, death, decay, and rebirth. These extremes in life and nature make me aware of my own impermanence and just like the highest mountains whither to sand so will my body turn to dust. I make objects that represent these natural processes of time and life and show a depleted barren depiction of the future of our fragile landscape.

The idea of time in my work is activated on two levels, one of actual time that I occupy and also geological time that has come before me and will continue long after I’m gone. I am interested in the current time in history in regards to the human interaction and neglect of stewardship to the land that we all share. Whether that is the depletion of natural resources or the over excavated landscape in search of these finite materials. The landscape in which we are currently observing is being transformed by human interactions rather than geological time. Through this process our civilization is altering and shaping the vary planet that we all inhabit and re writing our own geological history in the dirt.

My work has a sense of artifact with a raw natural appearance. I respond to artifactual quality of my work on a visceral and conceptual level. I see the artifact as being able to speak not just about change but also about context and content of a civilization.  I use hand built and mold processes to create an environment for the clay to react naturally to the elements of the firing. To allow the clay to do what in nature it would without my interaction. I incorporate my hand through use of tooling of the surface to create faults and tears to insinuate the infiltration of the man and machine. I see this way of working as cyclical and returning to the bare essentials of art-making and finding the essence of the material and its structure. The violence in volcanic eruptions and earthquakes are what shape this earth and create the beautiful structures that I directly respond to. I incorporate these observations into my work but in conjuncture the land is also being changed through mining, drilling, and excavation.  I see this accumulation of processes as a way to show the honest of our landscape.

Sacred: New Works By Justin Clumpner – Reception June 16 at Kettle Art

Justin_Clumpner_Sacred

Kettle Art Presents: “Sacred: New Works By Justin Clumpner” 

Opening Reception: Friday, June 16, 5-8pm

Kettle Art proudly presents “Sacred: New Works By Justin Clumpner” featuring current illustrations and paintings by the artist, as well as an exclusive, immersive installation, in the artist’s first solo exhibition at the gallery.

Clumpner’s work continues to explore the implications of America as a “Christian nation.” Working primarily in paint and collage, he depicts symbolic narratives built around portraiture. Using newspaper and advertisements as source material, Clumpner looks to our contemporary existence to find the maddening, the ironic, and the absurd. He uses this imagery to create secular icons of morality inspired by the stained glass windows and illuminated manuscripts that were ever-present in his upbringing. Using these same symbolic elements mixed with contemporary imagery, he creates something both new and familiar.

As Clumpner explains:

We have declared ourselves a Christian nation, but problematically the generosity, sacrifice, and love of our Christian saints do not align with the needs of contemporary America. We will need new saints. Saints of greed and division. Saints that tear apart man and nature, looking for every lucrative resource, and then building walls to protect that wealth. With that in mind, I have created this monument.
