EXHIBITS

April 14 – May 6
Reception – Saturday, April 14th, 7pm-10 pm

Verisimilitudiness
by Kalee Appleton
Downstairs / Front Gallery

Verisimilitudiness is the quality of having the appearance of being true or real. It’s not a real word, but just wait. Kalee Appleton’s solo exhibition, Verisimilitudiness, is the last and final exhibition by Appleton at 500X Gallery, so naturally it will be the most verisimilitudinessy of them all. The work being exhibited will indeed be based on truth (its photography after all), but in reality, its full of lies. Not little white lies, but big huge enormous lies that pull you in and seduce you. These huge lies are in the form of broad expansive landscape photographs that are inspired by mainstream photographic backdrops. Yes, the kind you had your photograph taken with as a youngster. As this description of the exhibition might indicate, this work also calls into questions the nature of fine art photography within the realm of the art world.

False Memory
by Lynné Bowman Cravens
Upstairs / Main Gallery

False Mercury is a continuation of Cravens’ exploration of the body through distortions and duplicates.  In this installation, she utilizes mirrors and origami to jumble the body and question the barrier between the physical and mental.  Segmenting and focusing on different body parts, Cravens creates abstract origami sculptures that show the multiplicity present in our physical forms, and the disconnect with our mental selves.  Through the use of mirrors, she invites the viewer to perceive themselves, layered within the carefully constructed compositions.  Literally reflecting on where one begins and the other ends.

In Search of the Uncanny Valley
by Ross Faircloth
Upstairs / Main Gallery

Utilizing a Sony PS4 and the game Grand Theft Auto V, I submersed myself into the uncanny valley of Los Santos.  These images are captured in a documentary style throughout the large ‘sandbox’ style gameplay with the characters’ phone camera.  I have printed them with archival methods in the darkroom to add permanence to an image originating from what is normally an impermanent medium.  The interplay between this analog output of a digital source by means of the documentary photo style are key in this work. Although this game is not the most realistic in terms of graphics currently available, it is close enough to be confused with our reality upon first glance.  In that way the images serve as markers, but to what at this point isn’t clear. Maybe it’s just the beginning of the trip through the valley, or the turning point, when we begin to accept what was once maybe too ‘uncanny’ because at this moment we still create and control it.

Constructing the Psychographic
by Jennings Sheffield and Chris Ireland
Downstairs / Project Space

In 2014, Cambridge Analytica obtained information from over 250,000 Facebook users. Focusing on the Facebook “likes” recorded by those users and their friends, Cambridge Analytica utilized this data and information to help influence the outcome of the presidential election. This collaboration represents the physical manifestation of data retrieved and collected over 7 days from the artists’ Facebook feeds. The data mined is presented as wallpaper, creating a physical space made of virtual information. Then the artists utilized a psychographic survey application developed by the University Cambridge designed to predict personality traits through Facebook content, and ran their own Facebook pages and feeds to gain “insight” into their own personalities. Constructing the Psychographic presents the nature of the digital footprints we share so freely on the internet, and questions the validity of constructing identity through the individual profiles created.

The Gravity of it All
by Abby Sherrill and Tabatha Trolli
Upstairs / Project Space

“The Gravity of It All”, pairs the work of Abby Sherrill and Tabatha Trolli in an exhibition interpreting each artists’ experience of time and space. Both Sherrill and Trolli work with combinations of found objects and mixed media drawing through installation, with an interest in exploring the perception of meaning. Sherrill’s interests lie in the philosophical and psychological spaces between learning, language and reality. Often through illusion and layered pattern, the work emulates the accelerated complexity of deciphering meaning in a fictive world. Sherrill uses symbols and terminology borrowed from the laws of physics to cope with feelings of anxiety and disorientation. Trolli’s relationship with objects is connected to how she interprets the body, the emotional self and human consciousness. Casts of interior spaces are quiet references to our relationship with time and space and how we choose to occupy them. These ghosts of spaces become inflated memories and meaning that displaces our obligation to be present in this moment.  These objects are abstract representations of mindless ritualistic behavior suggesting paranoia or altered perceptions. They become disruptions in the routine…the mundane…the accepted.

Jody Martin Solo Exhibit: WRAPPED IN DREAMS;
EXPLORING THE DREAMS OF SMALL TOWN TEXAS

March 6 – 31, 2018
West Gallery

RECEPTION Sunday, March 11, 2-4pm

As I travel the highways and back roads of my home state, I’m delighted and inspired by what I see. I get glimpses of people’s dreams in the way they live, what they’re busy doing, and how they choose to go about being Texans. From the yard art they cherish to the rusty old pickups that take them back to the dreams of yesterday, their surroundings hint of their spirit. Their faces reflect hardship and hope, pride and playfulness, duty and dreams. Join me in exploring the dreams of small town Texas!

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

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!

“With all of the chaos in the news and our lives, from leadership concerns to horribly destructive weather and all of the pain and sorrow in between, I’ve chosen to focus on the beauty in our world.

This “Glass Half Full” show features imagery that focuses on love, health, spirituality and my favorite qualities of the human soul. It is a joyful and colorful collection of paintings that aims to bring smiles and comfort to the viewer.”
