TVAA’s 2017 Abstract Redacted Reception May 7

May-TVAAA-Gallery-Poster1-471x600

May 1 – 31, 2017
Reception Sunday, May 7, 2-4 pm

The website for the TATE informs us that abstract ” means to separate or withdraw something from something else. Abstract art is art which is not representational, it could be based on a subject or may have no source at all in the external world.”

When sensitive information is removed or obscured from a document before it is published, it is said to have been redacted. In writing, this is a form of editing.

In this exhibit, we hope to show your abstract work with some redaction. You are the creator and must decide how that occurs. Will you use text which you conceal? Will you have an area in your piece that has had some content removed? Will a sculpture obviously show us a missing part? Perhaps the way you portray this idea will be more subjective. Perhaps it will be very literal. Subtle or not, you decide! All media welcome.

Kelli Vance – ‘Sappers and Miners’ opens Saturday 5/13 at CWFA!

KELLI VANCE

Sappers and Miners

kellivance

Kelli Vance, Sappers and Miners, 2017, oil on canvas, 78 x 90 inches

EXHIBITION DATES

May 13th – June 17th

OPENING RECEPTION 

Saturday, May 13th

from 5 – 8pm

Kelli Vance
We Provide Our Best Offering to the Universe
2017, oil on canvas, 60 x 36 inches

Cris Worley Fine Arts is proud to present Sappers and Miners, our second solo exhibition with Kelli Vance, opening with an artist’s reception on Saturday, May 13th from 5 – 8 pm.
Sappers and Miners will include a series of large-scale paintings produced in oil on canvas. The exhibition will be on view through June 17, 2017.
Kelli Vance is known for her photorealistic paintings, which explore psychologically thrilling themes from voyeurism to assumed identity. Her work is primarily driven by complex narratives surrounding socially constructed notions of femininity that romanticize alternative forms of beauty.
Working from staged photographs, Vance enhances tension in the subjects of her chosen models through her painterly play with light and textures including hair, rope, cake icing, and wet skin. She muffles provocative shouts existing within her compositions by depicting only portions of their narratives, keeping actions hinted by the titles relegated outside the frame.
In the recent work of Sappers and Miners, Vance suspends her depictions of female figures in tantalizing situations, in favor of subdued rituals. An arsenal of occult magic follows her figures in We Provide Our Best Offering to the Universe (2016) and Sun Eaters (2016) as they attempt to locate their locus of control in preparation for psychological battle. This sublime search for power is echoed by a palette of black and white, erasing any evidence of opulence from Vance’s earlier cinematic scenes. These new works summon viewers to seek serenity when reality becomes chaotic.
Kelli Vance was born in Garland, Texas receiving her BFA from the University of North Texas in 2005 and her MFA from the University of Houston in 2008. She was included in the 2009 Texas Biennale, in 2014 she was a finalist for the Hunting Art Prize, and in 2017 she received a Houston Arts Alliance Individual Artist Grant. Vance’s work has been shown widely across Texas as well as in Los Angeles, Chicago, and New Mexico.

Cris Worley Fine Arts is located at: 1845 Levee Street # 110, Dallas, TX 75207
Gallery Hours are Tuesday – Saturday from 11am – 5pm and by appointment.

HOURS
Tuesday-Friday 10am-5pm; Saturday noon-5pm

Through installation, sculpture and printmaking Sean Caulfield’s work considers the ways our envi- ronment is transformed by forces of urban and industrial growth. The visual images and environ- ments he creates blur boundaries between the biological and the technological, the organic and the mechanical; they challenge viewers to consider the implications of this merging.

“Central to my work is the role that society, community and the individual has in the moment of change. Focusing on broader themes of mutation, metamorphosis, and regeneration involving both the landscape and the individuals that inhabit it, I aim to raise challenging questions for viewers about the role they play. Ultimately, my work focuses on the idea that crisis and change – whether it be environmental, political, or personal – can be a significant and positive catalyst for rebirth, growth and courage.” Sean Caulfield

John Henry is known worldwide for his large-scale public works of art, which grace numerous museum, corporate, public and private collections. In the Dallas area, his sculptures may be seen in front of the Hall Arts Building in the Dallas Arts District.

The geometric forms that have defined John’s work for more than forty years have their aesthetic and historical base in Constructivism.  John received a Ford Foundation grant to attend the Art Institute of Chicago, where he earned a BFA. He received an Honorary Doctor of Arts from the University of Kentucky in 1996.

JM Gallery Presents: Ceramicist Linda Gossett April 22

LindaGossettgateway

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.
