Angelika Ejtel Solo Exhibition: Opening Reception | March 9 at ART7 Gallery


Fort Worth Community Arts Center presents: 

Angelika Ejtel: ‘And They Say Of Her Woman’

Please join us for the Opening Reception
Thursday, March 9, 6 – 8 PM

March 4 – March 22, 2017

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.

“Trans Dimensional Acquisitions” Holidaze at MFA Gallery Dec. 3



MFA gallery 419 N Tyler St, Dallas, TX 75208

Saturday, Dec. 3rd 6pm-9pm

Matt Bagley’s pan-dimensional archaeology travels have spanned past and future. This will be the last opportunity to see and hear about the cyborg conflict that morphs spacebug and robot traditions to create a new hybrid culture.

There will be performances by Professor Adroin a fourth dimensional viva voce chronicler. As well as, Professor R. Mutt, who traveled 100 years into the future- fulfilling Marcel Duchamp’s original vision for his bicycle wheel sculpture by combining musical and mechanical readymades with the world’s first kinetic sculpture.

Mighty Fine Arts presents “Trans Dimensional Acquisitions” featuring new work by Matt Bagley.


“Trans Dimensional Acquisitions” featuring new work by Matt Bagley.  Opens Sat. Nov.5 with a reception for the artist from 6-9pm and will run till Sun. Dec.11.

Mighty Fine Arts is located at 409A N,Tyler in Historic North Oak Cliff 75208.

Matt Bagley’s imaginative reveries find their underpinnings in the humid backwaters of South Louisiana. Matt is a bonafied swamp child who evolved from the primordial muck and mire to emerge as an artist and master printmaker, as well as a pan-dimensional archeologist, skateboard activist theologist and homespun philosopher. He has somehow managed to channel his multiple interests into coinciding narratives that inform his artistic practice. His storytelling is exemplified in the tales that he relates in his show: “The Feminist Fairytale” A band of women in the very distant past form an army with the animals to defeat a corrupt and paranoid queen, “Breussard the Alligator” the fun loving fashion hip alligator who returns from NYC to the swampland to make woodcuts prints and invent the “PRINT FROG”, “Space Bug Robot Wars” A cyborg conflict that morphs spacebug and robot traditions to create a new hybrid culture. Despite the far fetched threads Matt manages to ground his work in a commonality and empathy beyond his own personal concerns. Perhaps there’s a bit of the swamp in everyone that yearns for the acquisition of a trans-dimensional consciousness. Heavy assumptions indeed, that will be addressed and perhaps answered by coming out to Matt’s show!

Artist Reception: Saturday, September 10, 2016 from 5 – 8 pm
PDNB Gallery is pleased and honored to present Geof Kern’s second solo exhibition this fall. It will highlight work from 1987-1997. This time frame marks one of Geof Kern’s (b. 1950, New York City) most recognized periods of innovative fashion/ advertising/ editorial photography in his career.
His photographs are conceptual, often including surrealist references. Kern manipulated the medium (pre-photoshop) using multiple exposure, collage, photo sculpture and dioramas that soon catapulted his presence in the commercial photography world.
During this remarkable decade, his clients included important fashion houses and department stores: Bloomingdales, Selfridges in London, Takashimaya, Matsuda, Alexander Julian, and Neiman Marcus. Magazines he worked with included Esquire, Rolling Stone, Atlas, Discover, Eco Magazine, Spy (he was an editor one year), and Detour.
His work was highly sought after by some of the most acclaimed art directors of the era including John Jay, Fred Woodward, B.W. Honeycutt, D.J. Stout (Texas Monthly) and Rip Georges.
Kern is not based in New York, a city recognized as the capital of the creative arena. He has lived and worked in Dallas since 1978, while raising a large family. This exhibition gives the Dallas area (and beyond) the opportunity to see what Kern has forged in our own backyard. Some locals are familiar with his assignments with Dallas based, Neiman Marcus. But most are unfamiliar with the breadth of his accomplishments working with national and international clients such as the ones listed above.

Portfolio section page, 1990
Work prints from this period will be exhibited along with modern prints of the unique portfolio covers he presented to clients. This is a very distinct component of the exhibition that will illustrate Kern’s dedication to his work. These mixed media covers  include drawings, collage, paint and text, that offer his personal imprint on each portfolio.
Vintage prints will also be included in this industrious installation. These are gelatin silver prints that were made by the artist soon after the photograph was taken. In the art world, these are the most coveted prints to collect since a very small, finite number exist.
This is not the first time an art gallery has profiled work by a fashion/ advertising photographer in this area. Richard Avedon, Irving Penn (now at the Dallas Museum of Art) and Annie Lebovitz have been celebrated in local museum exhibitions. And The Dallas Contemporary has explored the fine line separating art and commerce with shows by Juergen Teller, Mario Testino, and Bruce Weber (upcoming).
Geof Kern’s photographs are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Art, Houston and the Musée Des Arts Décoratifs, Paris. He received the prestigious Infinity Award in Applied Photography from the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York as well as many other notable honors in his profession.

Earlie Hudnall, Jr. at PDNB


The compelling images by Earlie Hudnall, Jr, will be featured this Spring, in his second solo exhibition at PDNB Gallery.

Hudnall, who is one of the most notable African American photographers living today, has extensively documented the African American neighborhoods in Houston, Texas.  During his time at Texas Southern University in the late 1960’s,  he was hired to be a photographer for the Model Cities Program, part of Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty initiative. This project introduced him to the various communities of Houston such as the Fourth Ward, Fifth Ward, Trinity Garden and the Hispanic neighborhoods.  His photographs capture life as it is. He travels through neighborhoods documenting kids playing in the streets, women at church wearing elaborate hats, mothers hugging their kids, July 4th parades. Earlie Hudnall’s photographs were included in the traveling exhibition, African American Art: Harlem Renaissance, Civil Rights Era and Beyond, organized by the Smithsonian Museum of American Art.

Exhibition runs February 21 – May 9, 2015. Artist reception will be Saturday, February 21, 2015 from 5-8pm

Waleed Arshad – The Vortex Between Light and Dark opens Feb.16

Waleed vortex

February 16 – March 2, 2013

The opening reception and musical performance will be held on February 16, 2013 from 7 – 10PM at LuminArte Gallery, located at 1727 E. Levee St. in the Dallas Design District.

The vortex between light and dark pulls us into a black hole of distraction, a state of delusion brought on by the narcotizing effects of modern consumer culture. An individual becomes lost, intoxicated by triviality, and gives up control in a spiritual void. This is a state of exile from our true selves, our creative selves. Waleed Arshad, in a collaborative exchange with Phirip Divine and BroucLeon, creates a presentation of art and music in the service of salvation through artistic expression. Saturday, February 16, 2013 7:00pm until 11:00pm at LuminArte Gallery, 1727 E. Levee St., Dallas, Texas 75207 View Map · Get Directions http://www.luminarte.com/home.html
