EIGHT: Curated by Art Room opens Sept. 9

Artwork:
Tiger Hunting in Korea, Oil on panel, 16 x 20 inches, 2016

“EIGHT” 
On exhibit September 9 – 27, 2017 
With reception from 6 – 9 pm on Saturday, September 9th

Exhibited at the
Fort Worth Community Arts Center
1300 Gendy St
Fort Worth, TX 76107

http://fwcac.com


Art Room is pleased to announce its upcoming group exhibition “EIGHT” in conjunction with the Fort Worth Art Dealer’s Association’s Fall Gallery Night 2017. Exhibited at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, “EIGHT” represents the work of local, regional, and national artists, including Charis Ammon, Lauren Hana Chai, Alicia Eggert, Nathaniel Evans, Mariell Guzman, Jessica McClendon, and Melissa Mohammadi.

The artists featured in “EIGHT” transform their blank canvases – whether that be linen, paper, yupo, or the landscape – into rhythmic, gestural works that express a curiosity of self, time, and place. Through a narrative exploration of the personification of inanimate objects, Charis Ammon’s paintings consider the way in which borders and portals affect proprietorship. Her window blinds, fences, and walls bring about questions regarding one’s relationship with the “inside and outside world.” Lauren Hana Chai creates work using unconventional methodologies that include mixed media and oil on a variety of matrixes that reference her multicultural Eastern / Western upbringing. Her work reflects her own identity, as well as addresses taboo, feminism, sexuality, violation, and oppression. While using time and language as artistic materials, Alicia Eggert investigates the notion of absence and presence through an exploration of cycles, time, and weather. Her work questions the way one understands the past, present, and future in combination with the way one relates her or himself to time and experience.

“EIGHT” will run through September 27, 2017, at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center. Gallery hours are MondayFriday, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm. For additional information please contact Nathan Madrid, Katie Murray, or Deedra Baker at artroomfw@gmail.com, and visit our website www.artroom.space for more information about upcoming shows and to join our mailing list. An exhibition catalog will be available for purchase.

The Essential Nature and Freddie McCoo exhibitions at the Bath House

 

Join us for the opening reception of our two new art exhibitions
Saturday, September 2, 20177-9 PM
Featuring live music by Percussion Things – Free and open to the public
Resurface: Artwork by Freddie McCoo

Freddie McCoo’s experiences growing up in St. Louis, Missouri, began to shape his core of artistic sensibilities from an early age. His modest upbringing, careful observation of the world around him, and subsequent deep interest in subjects that focus on social, economic, political, cultural and spiritual issues are clearly manifested in his paintings, murals, and mixed media art.

Freddie’s work is constantly in a state of evolution. Some of his earlier works depict themes that draw inspiration from music, relationships, and the predicaments of living in a disadvantaged community. The artist presently continues to revisit those topics, but his interests have broadened to include concepts that investigate biblical imagery, history, cultural identity, and contemporary political concerns. When it comes to his style and technique, some might suggest that his experience working in large scale murals has provided the artist with the dexterity and clarity to infuse all of his works—through his choices of colors, textures, composition, and scale—with an admirable sense of monumentality and relevance.

A common feature in Freddie’s work is the use of symbols and texts, which often require thorough exploration by the viewer and, often, a bit of decoding. Freddie explains that he has come to appreciate the diversity of symbols and text as long-standing tools of visual communication. He states: “When thoughtfully juxtaposed, both text and symbol can become significantly more relevant and thus begin to reveal certain deep-seated truths.”


The Essential Nature

Featuring artwork by Ruda Anderson, Maureen Brouillette, Jenny DeLaughter, Viola Delgado, Cecelia Feld, Nancy Ferro, Susan Lecky, Mylan Nguyen, Silvia Thornton, Cecilia Thurman, Edith Torres Avendano,and Sarita Westrup.

In every creative discipline, artists express their experiences and emotions in innumerable ways. The methods, techniques, or arrangements that artists choose to illustrate their works’ central idea or principal theme are unsurprisingly diverse, given the universe of perspectives, beliefs, and personal partialities with which artists view the world. Art forms also vary in the degree of extensiveness or simplicity demonstrated by artists as they explore and communicate a message. Whereas some literary works employ long texts that are written with the intention of expanding on a main topic to offer a more meticulous study of a subject through further elaboration, visual art tends to be a deliberate process of elimination and reduction used by many artists to strip concepts and thoughts to their bare essentials.

This exhibition examines the notion that a work of visual art is fully capable of conveying, effectively and economically, complex ideas and narratives. The pieces presented in the show demonstrate that a picture is worth the meaning of ten thousand words. Whether with representational or abstract works, the participating artists express a multiplicity of messages with art that stand for qualities such as clarity, conciseness and simplification. The practical task—intentional or otherwise—of reducing unnecessary elements during the making of visual art does not subtract substance from the works. Reduction of elements in visual arts, normally, does not translate into a dilution of meaning; instead, it leads to an experience where the art reveals only the most indispensable and utterly fundamental aspects of the narratives and concepts investigated by the artists.

Southwestern Watercolor Society 54th Annual Member Exhibition opens August 30th

Southwestern Watercolor Society is pleased to announce it’s 54th Annual Member Exhibition beginning August 30 through September 30, 2017 to be held at the Eisemann Center, 2351 Performance Dr. Richardson, TX. Viewing hours are 10:00AM to 6:00PM, Mondays through Saturdays.  The awards ceremony and reception is Sunday, September 24th. from 4:00PM to 6:00PM at the Eisemann Center.  Keiko Tanabe is this year’s juror.  

Keiko was born in Kyoto, Japan and currently lives in San Diego, California, U.S.A.  Primarily self-taught, she embarked on a professional art career as a watercolor painter in 2005 after working in international relations and marketing.  Since then, her work has earned many awards and recognitions on national and international level.  Her work appears in private and corporate collections in many countries.  Her work was also featured in numerous art publications including L’Art de l’Aquarelle (France & UK), Practique des Arts (France), Watercolor Artist (US) and Artists & Illustrators (UK).  She is also a sought-after workshop instructor, teaching watercolor courses both in the U.S. and abroad.  She is currently a member of National Watercolor Society (signature), American Watercolor Society,4North American Watercolor Artists and American Impressionist Society. Her website: https://ktanabefineart.com/

SWS has a long and rich history. The first Society organizational meetings for SWS were held in 1963. The first official meeting was held in January 1964 at N.R. Crozier Tech high school in downtown Dallas. The Society was granted a charter by the State of Texas in May of 1964.

It all started with the influence of Edgar Whitney and Naomi Brotherton. Naomi, charter SWS member, studied with Ed Whitney on several of his New England station wagon tours. Naomi convinced Ed Whitney to stop in Dallas on his way to the west coast on tour. While in Dallas he presented his book, “Watercolor, the How’s and Whys.”

The first conversation about forming the Society took place at a one of these Ed Whitney classes. It was the Whitney class that formed the invitation for an organization meeting in December of 1963. Over 50 people attended the first organizational meeting.

54 years later SWS has grown to over 400 members to be one of the largest and notable watercolor societies in the nation. Each year SWS honors Edgar Whitney with the SWS Membership Show / Edgar A. Whitney Award for Transparent Watercolor and Naomi Brotherton with the “Naomi Brotherton Award, Best of Show” for the top winner, instituted last year. Naomi at 96 still is active in SWS and teaches classes in her Dallas studio.

Bivins Gallery Solo Exhibition Announcement Featuring Richard Hickam: Expressions of Color

Richard Hickam | Mulberry Forest | 1990 | oil on canvas | 67″ x 57″

Opening reception on Sat., September 16, 2017, 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Bivins Gallery in the Uptown Dallas Crescent complex.

Bivins Gallery is pleased to present the vibrant paintings of master colorist Richard Hickam in RichardHickam: Expressions of Color, on view from September 16 through October 21, 2017. The show will occupy the main gallery, and will trace Hickam’s artistic development from photorealism to large-scale abstracts to figurative abstractions, and his dedicated examination of the manipulation of color and brushstroke. Karen and Michael Bivins will host an opening reception for the exhibition with the artist in attendance at BivinsGallery on Sat., September 16, 2017 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. Complimentary valet parking will be provided for the opening and for all guests of Bivins Gallery during normal business hours.

Richard Hickam’s style, technique and influences are constantly evolving, yet his rich palette and unique characterizations make his work distinguishable. Hickam’s career began in the 1970s and was initially influenced by the photorealistic movement that surrounded him. Hickam’s affinity for pushing conventional boundaries transformed his style in the 1980s and 1990s, where his brushstroke loosened and took on an energetic gestural impasto, resulting in a series of large-scale abstractions. In the late 1990s, Hickam began exploring figurative abstraction. Discernable from this body of work are his portraits, whose striking features reflect a collection of inspirations, often combining physical aspects of multiple characters in Hickam’s own life. Through all his stylistic transitions, Hickam’s bold handling of color and tone remain the main subjects of his paintings.

Richard Hickam has been a celebrated American painter for over forty years, and his works have been exhibited in museums across the United States. His career has been the topic of numerous publications, and his works can be found in both private and public collections, including the Richmond Museum of Art, the Columbus Museum of Art, the Canton Museum of Art, and the Beck Center Museum.

Roberta Mallard, Impressionist

Last Saturday Gallery Night

Saturday, August 26, 5-8 pm

Roberta Mallard will be the featured artist at Your Private Collection Art Gallery as part of Granbury’s Last Saturday Gallery Night. Mallard’s works of landscapes, portraits and animals painted in oil and acrylic have often been selected for national, juried art shows.

I paint light and the color it creates,” said Mallard. “I am greatly influenced by the Impressionists.  The greatest joy of painting is seeing the look on the faces of clients when they see their portrait or have just purchased a painting and hearing the words, “I love it.””

Mallard’s work can be found in Southwest Art in the current August issue, “Women in Art” and in the upcoming September issue “National Emerging Artists.”

Galleries of Granbury

All the seven Galleries of Granbury venues are open until 8 pm with “meet the artists”, opening receptions, demonstrations, hors d’oeuvres, wine and music. A narrated “gallery” tram will be running between the gazebo in the courthouse parking lot and the surrounding galleries.

New Works by Matt Manalo in Project Space opening Aug. 19 at KHFA

Assimilation 01. Mixed Media on Panel. 12 x 12 inches.


OPENING 
RECEPTION

Saturday, August 19, 2017

 

New Works by Matt Manalo

August 19 – September 23, 2017

 

 

Kirk Hopper Fine Art (3008 Commerce Street) is pleased to exhibit New Works by Houston artist, Matt Manalo. This exhibit will feature Matt’s most recent mixed media paintings in our project space, opening Saturday, August 19th, with a public reception for the artist from 6.00 – 8.00 pm.

 

Originally from Manila, Philippines, Manalo creates work as a form of an ongoing journal of experiences from his time living in the Philippines in juxtaposition to his life in the United States. At the age of 18, Matt Manalo and his family decided to move to the United States in pursuit of a better life. Although living in a city as diverse as Houston he continues to reconcile his old life with his new life in the largest city in Texas. Matt states, “As an artist, I was looking for a tangible outlet to express my feelings, memories and newfound experiences.” He is constantly redefining his definition of “Home,” while struggling with memories from his homeland and the feeling of being split into two pieces emotionally.

 

Manalo’s work represents an abstracted image of a specific place or memory from either back home or from his new surroundings in Houston. The artist incorporates repetitive marks, shapes, collage and/or stamped images and scratch marks on his work. They signify the amount of “to and fro” with flashbacks that he has when making a piece. One notable aspect of Manalo’s work is the significant amount of physical or visual texture on the surface, which represents the grittiness of living in a city like Manila. As one will notice, Filipino artist Matt Manalo has two very different stories to tell.

 

Concrete (Gray). Mixed Media on Panel. 12 x 12 inches.

 

 

Artist Biography                                     

 

Matt Manalo was born and raised in Manila, Philippines. He moved to the

United States along with his family to pursue his education. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting with a minor in Art History at the University

of Houston. He has always been drawn to making art since he was a child. He grew up being heavily influenced by comic books and cartoons. His intuitive art making process includes the processes of collage, painting, and sculpture. His work talks about his identity as a Filipino and the places he has lived in.


 

 

 

Kirk Hopper Fine Art is located at

3008 Commerce Street, Dallas, Texas 75226 in the Deep Ellum neighborhood.

Gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday from 12pm – 6pm or by appointment.

Michael and Ron Heinlen: Photography Exhibit at JM Gallery

Join JM Gallery August 5, from 5 until 8 for our opening reception featuring photography from Michael and Ron Heinlen.

 

JM Gallery is pleased to present works by Ron and Michael Heinlen, father and son photographers who look for the extraordinary hidden within the seemingly ordinary. Ron’s camera is his constant companion, and he collects images from around the world. Many of his photographs capture everyday city scenes—a man eyeing produce in a Boston storefront or a pair of beggars in Beijing—that appear fleeting, but reveal a sense of the shared humanity we too often forget. Michael finds beauty in ordinary and decayed forms, like the graceful lines and shadows of telephone wires or the suggestive patterns of crumbling concrete and broken glass in an abandoned building. He photographs common objects that we may “see” but that remain unseen, re-visioning them into novel forms and exposing the grace that surrounds us. Whether by memorializing the routine or by shifting perspectives, both father and son focus on the commonplace and elevate their subjects.

30% of all sales from this show will be donated to Big Thought. For 30 years, Big Thought has collaborated with local partners to bring creative learning opportunities to youth in Dallas neighborhoods with the greatest need. Students in these high-need neighborhoods do not have equitable access to crucial out-of-school education, which widens the opportunity gap. Big Thought develops and facilitates after-school, in-school, summer, and community programs that stimulate the imagination, instill and strengthen crucial social and emotional learning skills, and impact academic achievement.

Richard Hickam: Expressions of Color opening Sept. 16

Bivins Gallery is pleased to present Richard Hickam: Expressions of Color from September 16 through October 21, 2017.

A celebrated painter for over forty years, Richard Hickam’s vibrant works have been exhibited in museums across the United States. Transitioning from photorealistic paintings to large-scale abstracts to figurative abstractions, Hickam’s style, technique, and influences are constantly evolving.  Whether it be the quirky and convention-breaking features of his human subjects, or his vivid jewel-toned abstractions, Hickam continues to explore the bold manipulation of color and brushstroke as the main subjects of his paintings. The topic of numerous publications, Hickam’s rich palette and accomplishments as a master of characterization have brought him recognition as a historically significant American painter.

An opening reception will be held at Bivins Gallery on September 16, 2017 from 5 to 8 p.m.

“Strong Color” – Avery Kelly & Steve Uriegas exhibit in Keller

Avery Kelly and Steve Uriegas share their talents as palette knife painters in the August public art show at Keller Town Hall. The Keller Public Arts program is pleased to highlight their art for this month long event from August 2nd through August 30th. The larger than average paintings will take your breath away with the bold color and individual subjects. 

“Miss Kelly’s work centers on the beauty and energy of the natural world. Specializing in oil painting and relief printmaking, she strives to convey a sense of joy and mystery through her work.”

“My current style, I coined Angular Expressionism, came by way of trial and error. The most important element of the technique is the use of pallet knives only, no brushes. It’s a process that took me a couple of years to develop and at this point I’m very comfortable in it. It’s an application that is systemized and choreographed. With this framework in place, I’m provided the liberty to search deeper for new ideas and concepts. It provides a structure I can work within using the canvas as my page and colors as my words. The reason I paint is because it gives me a way to express myself without the absoluteness of words.”

Join Avery and Steve for an Evening with the Artists, Thursday, August 10th from 7 to 9 pm at Keller Town Hall. Enjoy the music of the Southlake Community Band on the back patio, share refreshments and exchange in conversation around the art.

For more information please contact publicarts@cityofkeller.com or call 817-743-4000. Visit our website at www.cityofkeller.com/publicarts.

Concrete Jungle: DNA+Genetics Diaries of Native Americans: Reception July 29 at the OCCC

Concrete Jungle: DNA+Genetics
Diaries of Native Americans
July 29, 2017 – September 1, 2017

Reception: July 29, 2017
5:30pm – 8:00pm

Oak Cliff Cultural Center and American Indian Heritage Day in Texas present Concrete Jungle: DNA (Diary of Native Americans) and Genetics. An exhibit that focuses on breaking the perceptions and deceptions that are commonly associated with Native Americans. Concrete Jungle: DNA and Genetics will be on display from July 29 – September 1, 2017. A reception will be held on Saturday, July 29, 2017, from 5:30pm – 8:00pm. Exhibit and gallery reception are FREE and open to the public.

About the Exhibit

The most researched but least understood are the American Indians. American Indians, also known as “urban indians” live in the North Texas region. “Urban Indians” often deal with stereotypes and racism by well-meaning citizens who are not knowledgeable of American Indians. The DNAs of the American Indians are earth and sky, past and future, evolution and continuation, genocide and survivalists. The modern DIARY OF NATIVE AMERICANS is breaking the mold of today’s perception and deception of American Indians by sharing the duality that Urban Indians must exist in. Our American Indian community is trying to hold on to its cultural preservation, while addressing assimilation to the mainstream society.
