The Book Forest Installation at the Irving Arts Center


The Book Forest Installation, Irving Arts Center

December 1, 2016January 29, 2017
ARTIST TALK Dec. 10, 1:00pm
Artists VET and Sheila Cunningham join forces to showcase the power of trees and books, contemplating the transitional phases of both. Their installation transforms the Focus Gallery into a forest of altered books that have been folded, manipulated and stacked to mimic trees, plants and ground cover. The exhibit inspires conversation about re-purposing, recycling and conservation.

Process to Product opens April 14 at the Creative Arts Center of Dallas


CAC’s ongoing exhibition ‘Process to Product’ opens Thursday, April 14th 6 – 8pm with five new teaching artists exploring the journey from conception to a finished solution. Their experience, translated through their hands and hearts, using specific tools and materials, ultimately leads to a piece of finished art.

Curated by CAC Instructor Susan Giller, the show features the process and work of Sheila Cunningham (book arts); Chuck McCarter (painting); Suzanne Morgan (fiber arts); Robert Moore (abstract art) and Art Wells (stone sculpting). This installment of the exhibition series will be on view at CAC through June 18th.
