Your Private Collection Art Gallery Presents Jack Wolfsen

1JackWolfsenad2

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.”

finishing touches

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.”   

Galleries of Granbury—Last Saturday Gallery Night

Come celebrate Wolfsen’s art at Your Private Collection Art Gallery on March 25 as part of Galleries of Granbury’s Last Saturday Gallery Night.

The Galleries of Granbury will host “Last Saturday Gallery Night” (a free art walk) on the last Saturday of each month. All are open until 8pm with “meet the artists”, opening receptions, demonstrations, hors d’oeuvres, wine and music.

Simeen Farhat: ‘Blood Shot is Blood Loved’ opens April 1st at Cris Worley

Farhat-Simeen-Blood-detail PR-Farhat-Blood-Shot-is-Blood-Loved

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

flyer: PR-Farhat-Blood-Shot-is-Blood-Loved
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.

Jack Whitten: Earlier Works at Bivins Gallery

Jack Whitten

Bivins Gallery is pleased to present Jack Whitten: Earlier Works from April 1-May 6, 2017.

Created during a five-year period in the late 1960s, the paintings and works on paper featured in Jack Whitten: Earlier Works reference race, cosmology, music, and politics. Influenced by personal relationships with Willem de Kooning, Martin Luther King, Jr., Miles Davis, Philip Guston, and Franz Kline, the abstractions reflect the social and political turmoil of the era. The conversation will be joined by Dallas’s own local artist Spencer Evans, whose work references issues of identity and image in the black community. Please join us at the opening reception on April 1 from 5 pm – 8pm, at the gallery’s Uptown location, to continue the dialogue. Bivins Gallery is located at 300 Crescent Court, Suite 100,Dallas, TX 75201. http://www.bivinsgallery.com/ Please contact anna@bivinsgallery.com for more details.

Reception March 3 for Jeremy Lock at JM Gallery

unnamed (39)

Join JM Gallery Friday, March 3, from 6 until 9 for an opening reception featuring photographs from Jeremy Lock. 

JM Gallery, 1722 Routh Street Suite 106, Dallas, Tx 75201

During his adrenaline-filled career as a military photographer, Jeremy Lock documented battles, disasters, and everyday life in Afghanistan, Iraq, Japan, Haiti, Mongolia, and many other locations. He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for distinguished service in Iraq, and was named Military Photojournalist of the Year seven times. Though no longer in the military, Jeremy’s intense vision and passion continue to motivate and inspire him and his work. He travels constantly, documenting landscapes that evoke the frightening power and awesome beauty of our world and capturing images of the people who occupy it that evoke the essence and reality of humanity at its finest and its worst. As he explains, “Not only do I get to live my life, but I’ve been able to live the lives of those I photograph, even if it was just for a moment. I thrive on sharing those experiences.” For this show, Jeremy shares his experiences with a collection of aerial landscapes and portraits from around the world. The vistas and people, though far-flung and diverse, are united in his photographs by pattern, shape, color, and texture. African deserts, Alaskan tundra, an old man’s face—all very different, yet with so much in common, if we know how to look. These photographs help us to see past our differences and understand how much of the world and our human experience within it are held in common.
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.

Photography Exhibit: And They Say Of Her Woman| Angelika Ejtel

Angelika_Ejtel_On The Edge of Passing_PROM_pic 5

The Fort Worth Community Arts Center is pleased to announce the opening reception for self-portrait photographer Angelika Ejtel’s exhibition “And They Say Of Her Woman”.

Inspired by the poetry of a famous Polish poet H.  Poswiatowska, in this exhibition of self-portraits, Angelika Ejtel integrates the images that belong to her most feminine works. They encompass the motifs of dark love, never-ending longing and hidden desires. Woman and her intimate world(s) portrayed in the poems of Poswiatowska, takes the face and body of the artist in her photographs. This is just a tiny study of what womanhood is in its broad spectrum of meanings.

Angelika uses herself as a subject for her images. She considers her photographic creation as a poetic experience in which she drowns and infuses herself and, as a result, it gives her the feeling that she is reborn with each portrait into a new being. Although, all of her photographs are self-portraits, they shouldn’t be necessarily read as self-presentations, rather they should be revealed as the multiplicity of “selves” available to one individual. To put it succinctly, her attitude towards the self is more of an exploratory journey between an awareness of self and an unawareness of some aspects of oneself.

The exhibition will be on view from March 4th through March 22nd, 2017.

Please, join us at ART 7 Gallery in Fort Worth, TX for a complementary reception, and meet the artist on Thursday, March 9th from 6 to 8 PM.

Art Exhibit: Fresh Paint | Hailey Herrera

Screen Shot 2017-02-16 at 12.33.00 PM

Inspired by the Japanese aesthetic of Wabi-Sabi, in this exhibit of abstract watermedia paintings Hailey Herrera integrates freeform lines and shapes; finding her inspiration from nature and her surroundings. Unless she has a specific theme in mind, she begins with some calligraphic lines without a preconceived idea of result. In the process of interplaying lines and shapes spontaneously, an idea emerges and the painting reveals something new to which her intuition and emotion responds. This spontaneous decision process leads to a fascinating and unconventional result.

The work displayed at Elm Street Studio is an ongoing study of experimentation in watermedia abstract painting.  Please join us at Elm Street Studio in Keller, TX for a complimentary reception and meet the artist on Friday, March 24 from 6 to 8 pm. For more information and to see images of Herrera’s work, please visit www.ElmStreetStudioKeller.com. Fresh Paint: Watermedia Abstracts by Hailey Herrera will be on display through April 27, 2017.

In 2003, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri invited N’Kele to lecture in conjunction with their exhibition, Art of the Lega: Meaning and Metaphor in Central Africa.

N’Kele has exhibited throughout Texas, Tennessee, North Carolina, Iowa, Nevada, Oklahoma and the country of Norway. He has also conducted artist residencies, working with students from kindergarten through college in Irving, Dallas, Southlake and Fort Worth. His most recent Residency was at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History.

Ithaca University in New York included N’Kele on a list of 20th century African Americans who have made important contributions to the humanities for Forgotten Heritage, a series of sculptures with a historical theme.

Contextual Assembly opening Feb. 23 at Kettle Art

Contextual_Assembly_square

Kettle Art proudly presents ‘Contextual Assembly’ a group exhibit featuring new works by Corey Godfrey, Hilda Lafleur, Roberta Masciarelli, and Amy Seymour.

From Corey’s soft, yarn focus on stones, to Hilda’s psychedelic imagery, to Roberta’s recycled constructions, to Amy’s imaginative world of clay, these four artists are united in whimsical, dream-like realities. This exhibit opens on Thursday, February 23, 2017, from 7:00-10:00pm, and runs through Saturday, March 18.

Kettle Art Gallery Deep in the Art of Ellum
2650-B Main Street  Dallas, TX 75226 www.kettleart.com

Roberta_Masciarelli_Animal_Condo

Corey Godfrey is a Texas-based artist whose past works have focused primarily on women as subject matter, utilizing yarn as her medium, a material traditionally associated with them. In her current series, Corey is inspired by stones found in nature that exemplify beauty, strength, and a profound sense of femininity. Corey holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from North Texas State University.

Roberta Masciarelli  is a Brazilian-born visual artist based in Dallas for the past eighteen years. Her art consists of sculptures, or constructions, created from found objects and materials, such as metal hardware. Having been a full-time artist for approximately ten years, Roberta has participated in art events within the US including Dallas, Washington DC, Santa Fe, Sedona, and New York. Internationally, she has exhibited in collective exhibits in England, Holland, Denmark, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, South Africa, New Zealand, Bosnia, Japan, Italy, and India. She earned a Bachelor of Architecture from Mackenzie University, Sao Paulo, Brazil.

HIlda Lafleur is a self-taught, Texas-born-and-bred artist. Hilda’s unique eye for color produces upbeat paintings inspired by frequent trips throughout Europe, further influenced by a life spent in Dallas during the turbulent sixties, seventies, and beyond. Her works are created on hand made canvas and painted with a unique concoction of acrylic paint and secret ingredients.

Amy Seymour is a Dallas native who has been creating art, sculpture, and photography for approximately twenty years. Amy’s work depicts a playful and mischievous vision from a dreamy realm within her subconscious view of the world around us.

Meet the artist at the upcoming reception on Saturday, February 11, 2017 from 4:30pm to 7:30pm.

The paintings…are a synthetic blend between abstract and Trompe-l’œil illusion. Ranging between abstract minimalism to geometric abstraction, each piece reflects a balance of classical geometry creating fiery optical effects on handmade panels.

Bogomir Bogdanovic Estate Retrospective Exhibition at Southwest Gallery

Bpgp,orBpgdampvoc

Southwest Gallery is excited to announce a special Estate Retrospective Show for
(1923-2011)
Saturday, February 11th from 1-5 pm
Southwest Gallery 4500 Sigma Rd.  Dallas, Texas 75244    972.960.8935    800.272.9910   www.swgallery.com

This special retrospective exhibition features his life’s work of the seasons in Oil, Watercolor and Pastel. Meet the artists son, Milan Bogdanovic, February 11th from 1-5 pm to get an exclusive look into the life of Bogomir Bogdanovic.

Born in Senje, Yugoslavia, in 1923, Bogdanovic studied Art and Architecture at Belgrade University and then immigrated to New York in 1957, at the age of 34.
While making a living as an illustrator for a manufacturing company, he painted the seasonal beauty of New York City in oil and watercolor. His heart’s desire was also to capture the picturesque countryside of upstate New York where he discovered the quaint town of Warwick, satisfying his need to be close to New York City for the artists market and the serene subject matter he loved to paint.
Bogdanovic’s work consists of varied subjects, primarily of breathtaking landscapes dotted with people from New York City, Warwick, and neighboring Sussex County. “I paint everything,” he says, but not abstractions, as he prefers his art to be recognizable; “it’s an amazing experience to watch a painting reveal itself, be it on paper or canvas.” Enduring long hours in snow and ice, he enjoys painting on location, rarely using photographs unless he has taken them himself. Bogdanovic compares his profession to being a hunter, searching for the ideas worth talking about. His choices have been the right ones – enabling him to take many painting honors throughout his long career.  He passed away March 25, 2011 survived by his son.

GISA ELWAZIR DIPTYCH: A DIVIDED LAND (SCAPE)

GisaElwazirProtecting the Land

February 9 – March 4, 2017
Opening Reception:  Saturday, February 11, 5-8 pm
Haley-Henman Gallery at Gallery 422422 Singleton Boulevard, Dallas, Texas 75212 

Gisa Elwazir’s fourth solo exhibition at Haley-Henman

DALLAS, Texas (January 10, 2017)–Haley-Henman proudly announces Gisa Elwazir’s solo exhibition of new paintings titled Diptych:  A Divided Land (Scape).  The exhibition opens on Thursday, February 9th and continues until March 4th. An opening reception with the artist is Saturday, February 11th from 5-8 pm.

Gisa Elwazir is at her most complex expression of her leitmotif, organic abstraction.  This is her fourth solo exhibition of new paintings in this collection.   Haley-Henman is honored to be the premier venue of her new works that continually receive awards in juried competitions.

At the foundation of all these works is her medium of decalcomania, whereby she makes a texture of paint applied to the paper, like putting on a decal.  It is from this texture that the artist begins her creative process.  Decalcomania begins the rich layering of saturated colors, stippled transparencies of color, and the unfolding of spaces and forms.

For this exhibition, the viewer encounters the majority of works as diptychs in which the artist intentionally keeps a space between two continguous panels.  When a viewer approaches Gisa Elwazir’s paintings, there is an overall sense that something is happening.  The visual sense is assaulted with color interwoven by dynamic patterns of action.  These paintings are not static abstractions, nor are they static land (scapes).  As the viewer gets closer to the work, there is an increased visual experience of seeing stunning detail, with occasional plays of figurative and landscape references where the inner worlds of imagination come to life, and where the viewer can give their own meaning to the artist’s suggestions.

CINDY J. HOLMES
THUS SPAKE DERRIDA

March 9 – April 1, 2017
Opening reception:  Saturday, March 11, 5-8 pm
Haley-Henman Gallery at Gallery 422
422 Singleton Boulevard
Dallas, Texas 75212

a solo exhibition of new paintings

DALLAS, Texas (February 4, 2017)– Haley-Henman proudly presents Cindy J. Holmes’ solo exhibition of new paintings titled Thus Spake Derrida.  This is her third solo exhibition at Haley-Henman, which focuses on the human figure. The opening reception on Saturday, March 11 from 5-8 pm is free and open to the public.  The exhibition is from March 9 through April 1, 2017.

For this exhibition, Holmes has pushed the boundaries toward abstraction. Indeed, these paintings reference the Bay Area Figurative Movement that has generated itself as a distinct style since the 1950s, and which continues today in Holmes’s work.  But her existential position is different.  Instead of reintegrating elements of realism into painting, such as what the Bay Area artist did when they went beyond Abstract Expressionism, Holmes starts with realism and then takes it apart.

 

For Holmes, the figure is not stepping into an abstraction.  Her process breaks the rules of figurative artwork, and in this deconstructed way, removes the binary oppositions of beauty/ugly, whole/parts, man/woman.
Holmes allusion to Nietzsche in the title of her exhibition resonates with her paintings as “…authentic art, which allows freedom above things.  We need all exuberant, floating, dancing, mocking, childish, and blissful art lest we loose our freedom above things our ideal demands of us…” (Nietzsche 1882, The Gay Science: With a Prelude in Rhymes and an Appendix of Songs (1974), translated with a commentary, Walter Kaufman, N.Y., Vintage Books, p. 164).
