Opening Sat., Nov. 4 at Ro2 Art | Joshua Goode: Pegasus Armor + Erika Duque: Paraíso

Joshua Goode
Pegasus Armor

November 4 – December 2

Opening Reception:
Saturday, November 4, 7-10 pm

Ro2 Art is pleased to present ‘Pegasus Armor,’ a solo exhibition featuring new works by Dallas artist Joshua Goode. The show will run from November 4 through December 2, 2017. There will be an opening reception held Saturday, November 4, from 7-10 p.m. at Ro2 Art, located at 1501 S. Ervay Street in Dallas’ Cedars neighborhood.

As an artist, Joshua Goode fabricates convincing archaeological evidence to support the existence of the imaginary Aurora-Rhoman civilization, preserving his childhood memories in the guise of ancient artifacts. This personal mythology is bolstered by Goode’s staged archaeological digs, which allow the artist to adopt and distort both the historical and mythological aspects of various regions around the world. Inspired by amateur archaeologists such as Heinrich Schliemann who discovered Troy, and by past elaborate hoaxes like that of the Piltdown Man, Goode uses his “discoveries” to manipulate and verify his invented civilization.

About the artist


Erika Duque
Paraíso

November 4 – December 2

Opening Reception:
Saturday, November 4, 7-10 pm

Paraiso reflects on artist Erika Duque’s recent trip to Tulum, Mexico and the lush jungles and vegetation that she saw during her time there. Paraiso translates to paradise in Spanish and Duque’s paintings reflect the tropical paradise of her trip with bright vibrant colors of orange and reds as well as sharp verdant greens. Duque painted with a specific color palette and looser strokes in order to intensify the dream like qualities of the subject matter and take the viewer to a pleasurable worry free locale. For Duque, the paintings in Paraiso reflect both memories and pleasure.

Genesis   ….and other works that embrace Life
Art by Darby LaGrave

Friday and Saturday, November 17-18, 5pm-9pm
5pm-9pm, with artist talk at 7pm both evenings

Darby draws inspiration from the expanse of the universe to the fragile creatures around her rural home to create elegant compositions that carry a message of hope, of relationship, of life.
“Genesis is the beginning. There are moments when we have vision, hope, dreams higher than we believe possible.  And yet, what are the possibilities?  What does our hope for the future spring from?  A new beginning, beginning to grow, the dawn of newness, fresh, uncluttered, uninhibited. Rest in the Presence, the hope of a future is yours.  Genesis is the future.”  –Darby

500x Gallery Exhibitions
October 7th to November 5th
Opening Reception Saturday, Oct. 7th, 7-10pm

EXPO 2017
Downstairs / Main Gallery

Curated by Sara-Jayne Parsons

Featured artists:

Dannie Liebgot, Kristina Smith, Teresa Larrabee, Jonas Criscoe, Adrianna Touch, Dario Bucheli, Amy Dierdorf, Emily Loving, Michelle Hinojosa, Narong Tintamusik, Cande Aguilar, Selwa Moharram, Francisco Alvarado, Anna Lee, Austin Sparks, David Namaksy, Sierra Forester, Jon Ashcraft, Jeanne Neal, Raciel Camargo, Bunim Kim, Kiran Sattar, Audrey Travis, Bernardo Vallarino, Barbara Horlander, Jennise Burgos, Kendra Smith, Ricardo Orozco, Blake Weld
500X Gallery, Texas’ oldest, artist-run, cooperative galleries, hosts one of North Texas’ most anticipated annual juried competitions. Expo 2017 is open to all artists over the age of 18 living in Texas.  The exhibition will be running from October 7th – November 5, 2017, with a reception October 7, from 7pm-10pm.
This years juror is Sara-Jayne Parsons. As the Director of the Art Galleries at TCU in Fort Worth, British curator Sara-Jayne Parsons drives the international vision of Fort Worth Contemporary Arts and promotes professional development of students and local artists through programming in Moudy Gallery. Before moving to Fort Worth in 2014 Parsons was the Exhibitions Curator at the Bluecoat in Liverpool, UK, where for eight years she produced a diverse, contemporary exhibition programme. In that time she was also a collaborative member of the curatorial team for the Liverpool Biennial. She has also published critical writing in various contemporary art magazines including Source, Art Monthly Australia and ArtLies, and has published essays in numerous exhibition catalogues.


We Made Cool – Ari Brielle
Downstairs / Project Space

We Made Cool is a body of work by Ari Brielle that examines notions of black femininity, strength and softness. Candy painted colors and natural motifs decorate portraits that explore black culture, consumption and experience. Ari Brielle is an emerging visual artist based in Dallas, Texas. She completed her BA at the University of North Texas in 2016 where she cultivated her studio practice and studied Interdisciplinary Art and Design. Brielle has exhibited in Texas and New York, and was recently nominated as one of Dallas’ Rising Stars by Liliana Bloch Gallery.


A Call From The Center of Things 
– Bárbara Cartier
Upstairs / Project Space

Bárbara Cartier energetically explores the tricky territory between painting and sculpture using a variety of materials and methods to create sculptural forms reminiscent of organic objects such as eggs and river rocks. Her use of vibrant colors and silky smooth surfaces suggest a “new car” seduction; polyurethane and fiberglass forms become outsized shining gems, transformed by hand and machine resulting in an ornate illusion of weight and volume. Teamed with collages, these totemic forms challenge decoration in a playful manner to create a kaleidoscopic installation intent on alchemy.

Born in Argentina, Bárbara Cartier now lives and works in Panama. Featuring new sculpture and collages, A Call From The Center of Things will be her first solo exhibition in the United States. This exhibition is sponsored by the Art Galleries at TCU.


2017 Member’s Exhibition

Upstairs / Main Gallery

Welcoming the addition of its newest members, this group of emerging Texas artists will be showcasing a range of media investigating a variety of content and formal concerns. Now on exhibition until November 5th.

Featured artists:

Kalee Appleton, Clint Bargers, Lynne Bowman-Cravens, Molly Dierks, Ross Faircloth, Chris Ireland, Steven Foutch, Julie Libersat, Seth Lorenz, Valerie Powell, Justin Strickland-Hoff, James Talambas, Tabatha Trolli, Tony Veronese, and Ashley Whitt.

OJAI Junket opening Sept. 24 – a triple threat tour of Dallas art!

OJAI Joint Administrative Intelligence Junket

  • When: Sunday, September 24, 4-6 PM 
  • Where: 500X, The Box Company, Ro2 Art

Chris Dreier and Gary Farrelly’s farcical bureaucratic agency, The Office for Joint Administrative Intelligence (OJAI) has invaded Dallas with two shows, Fruit Efficiency at Ro2 Art and A Hard Place at 500X Gallery. If you haven’t had a chance to see the brilliant work of the bureaucracy in action yet, now may be your last chance, as both shows are drawing to a close this Sunday.

Luckily, Ro2 Art, 500X, and The Box Company have teamed up to bring you an exciting triple threat tour of both OJAI shows, plus Ro2 Artist Julie Libersat’s show with Nic Mathis, Intersections, at The Box Company. It will be a wild ride filled with bureaucracy, architecture, roads, and postcards. Our first stop will be at 500X at 4:00 PM to see A Hard Place, a celebration of brutalist architecture curated by Gundula Schmitz of Laura Mars Gallery (Berlin) and Gary Farrelly. From there we will venture to The Box Company to check out Julie Libersat and Nic Mathis’ show, Intersections, which centers around roads, intersections, and all things paved. Our final stop will be at Ro2 Art to see Fruit Efficiency, a show featuring Chris Dreier and Gary Farrelly’s fictitious, bureaucratic corporation, OJAI. We hope you will join us on this artistic junket across Dallas to see these three important shows before they close!

The rugged cowboy life of riding the open range, cattle driving, breaking wild horses, working in severe cold or heat, gun slinging, drinking in Saloons, is the stuff of great fiction.

New exhibitions with Fannie Brito, Teri Muse, Diane Walker-Gladney and S. Chuck McCarter at the Bath House

Join us for the opening reception of our two new art exhibitions
Saturday, July 8, 2017 • 7-9 PM
Featuring live music by Percussion Things – Free and open to the public

Recollective: Paintings by Fannie Brito, Diane Walker-Gladney and Teri Muse

July 8-August 5, 2017

One of the most interesting aspects of abstract painting is the medium’s ability to inspire the viewer to experience the work from two different, yet interconnected, sensorial perspectives: the perception of the work centered on the outward qualities that make the painting attractive and captivating, and the nonconcrete, subliminal aspects of the art that often require subjective decoding and active participation of the public. The three artists featured in the Recollective exhibition, Fannie BritoTeri Muse, and Diane Walker-Gladney, are aware of the interlinked relationship of the material and the intangible every time they create their works. Although each of the artist’s is focusing on diverse impressions and is using different technical approaches to do her work, the viewer can still detect a number of concepts and viewpoints that all of the artists are sharing.

The Recollective exhibition brings together the artists’ common interests and sensibilities and explores the power granted by the art of painting to evoke enduring images, memories, and emotions. Through abstract paintings, formed with multiple layers of color, texture, implied texts, and vivid expressiveness, the painters attempt to rescue a hidden or almost forgotten recollection. The process of painting becomes a vehicle to the subconscious world of the artists and the final works are an earnest effort to remember some occurrence or experience that is transplanted from the memory to the canvases. An essential task of the viewer in the gallery then becomes to extract his own personal messages and remembrances from the field of color and marks so that, as a result, the exhibition turns into a collaborative reminiscing act that is both rich and engaging..

Whimsical:

Recent Paintings by S. Chuck McCarter

July 8-August 5, 2017

The paintings from S. Chuck McCarter’s new exhibition, Whimsical, at the Bath House Cultural Center, faithfully reflect the artist’s natural inclination for the playful interaction of art elements and the world of his experiences, real and imagined. He affirms that art is his mind at play and that colors, shapes, and surface textures are his sandbox from which his content emerges.

The inspiration for Chuck’s work come from childhood stories, fairy tales, ancient historical epics, the Bible, Native American narratives and careful observations of daily life and its oddities. The artist includes humans, animals, metaphorical imagery, and multicultural references in his work. Although some of the artist’s work is based on research and study, he describes his work as an often evolving and ever-changing process that he embarks upon intuitively and spontaneously, often with the aid of meditation and inner exploration. Through relaxed contemplation, inwardness, and silence, the painter finds his deepest soul, letting the piece dictate what it wants to become. The artist explains: “Correct painting, so to say, can only happen or be expressed when the colors themselves are allowed to lead, letting specific shapes and themes arise from the color’s interaction. When the practicioner is neither impossing himself on the process, nor trying to take control, real art can take place.

S. Chuck McCarter is a visual artist, exhibition curator, and a recently retired art professor. He lives and works near White Rock Lake in East Dallas.

Lindsey Larsen
 
Dream Juice is a contemplation of things in nature, like humans and all the other physical things… but also things that aren’t physical, like an experience, maybe? I mean experience with a capital E.
Abyss
Ashley Whitt
 
Abyss explores the dichotomy between order and chaos within the universe and within the self. Photographic collages and sculptural artist books are fabricated to illustrate the physical manifestations of anxiety and depression through the deconstruction of the photographic image.
Collages are made using a combination of alternative processes; lumen prints, chemigrams, and solvent transfers. To create the images, photographic prints are cut apart and sewn back together. Geometric and organic shapes mimic the patterns and phenomenons found within the universe. Abyss considers the correlation between the inner self and outer space as well as our desires to control and make sense of life and death.

Courtney Asztalos & Nydia Blas, Jessica Dean Camp & Cole Don Kelley, Angela Deane & Alisson Bittiker, Lee Deigaard & Elizabeth Stone, Hobbes Ginsberg & Andi Icaza, Michelle Groskopf & Alexander Coggin, Janna Ireland & Morgan Rachel Levy, Natalie Krick & Lissa Rivera, Ian Lewandowski & Caiti Borruso, Juan Madrid & Maggie Stockman, Ross Mantle & Chris Maggio, Noelle McCleaf & Michael McCraw, Zora Murff & Rana Young, Amy Lynn Powell & Maddie McGarvey, Tamara Reynolds & Matthew Genitempo, David Soffa & Liz Calvi, Sasha Tivetsky & Melissa Spitz, and Tara Wray & Carrie Elizabeth Thompson.

object/non-object
Kelsey Heimerman and Sammy Rat Rios
Curated by Seth Lorenz
 
Two women, lots of color and two ways of seeing the world.
Kelsey Heimerman is an objective painter that mainly paints “figures (that) are her metaphorical haystacks and they reflect our contemporary world. Using distortion, engorged layers of firm, deliberate and bleeding paint become objectified as they describe flesh, spaces, animals and a codex of modern iconography.As a seeker of knowledge and a person people are drawn to, Heimerman strives to become a part of the American female narrative. Influenced by Frida Kahlo, Keith Haring, Henry Darger, Hemonous Boch, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and Rosson Crow she continues diligently Project people projecting visions of a dreamlike futuristic world where all people are accepted.”
Sammy Rat Rios is a multifaceted Dallas artist, she is a musician, actress, and painter to name a few. Although her main focus is her music, her paintings are wonderful non-objective examples of her personal aesthetic. Everything she does, whether it be painting, singing, acting, or walking down the street, she does with a grace and style quite unique to herself. She is drawn to color, design, and clean simple aesthetics and she expresses these magnetisms boldly in her paintings.
