The Dragon that Never Sleeps – a solo exhibit by Anna Crowley Ford

15181526_10210919676535282_1070945995647659688_n

Anna Crowley Ford’s installation consists of over 40 handmade ceramic heads in her own likeness. Each describes a different feeling or experience that she has when she is attacked by migraines. She has beautiful photographs of herself along with her story. The exhibit will include a video that she has made of herself doing simple tasks while experiencing these migraine headaches. There is a meter that goes with each vignette that tracks The escalation of her pain and nausea as she performs these tasks.

It is a beautiful and important work of art. Since so many people suffer from migraine headaches and other debilitating situations I believe as many people as possible should have an opportunity to see this exhibit.

Join us for a 2nd chance reception on Saturday, December 17 from 6:00-9:00 pm.  Exhibit on display through January 14.  For an alternate viewing time, please contact the gallery.

The Small Gallery is located in the west wing of Valley View mall, at 13331 Preston Rd., Dallas, Texas (@ LBJ/Preston).

His use of strong colors and extreme light/dark contrasts achieve a spatial depth that brings the earth to life on these small works on paper.

Capture
You are invited to join the Small Gallery for an opening reception titled 1•2•3

An opening reception will be held during the Midtown Artwalk on Saturday, May 21, from 6:00-9:00 pm.

The Small Gallery is located in the west wing of Valley View at 13331 Preston Rd. (Preston/LBJ).

1. John P. Irizarry – 
As an artist my paintings are dramatic like my personality. My abstractions call for your undivided attention. My sense of space is simple but fresh. The paintings are liberating fantasies where animated shapes meet color, lines and form to pull together as structural manifestations of a dream like state. I strive for each painting to succeed in constant movement and add energy to the viewers of my work.
2. Art in Venezuela –
We present expressions that represent a small snapshot of the Art in Venezuela, from the perspective of its creators.  The observer will find common themes, those that are part of what being “Venezolano” means. “The objective of art is not to adorn but to transcend…A piece of art is the eternity”. 
 – Oswaldo Vigas
3. Sammy Thomason
At a pen turning club meeting a member showed me a pen made with watch parts. I had to know where he got all of the parts and how he did it. “Go to the Internet and enter steampunk” was all he said. A new world was opened to me! Victorian Science Fiction. Where have you been all of my life? Wood, metal, brass, clocks, steam power, and gears, doesn’t get any better!

Listen – Songs of the Times: May 16 at the Small Gallery

robert moore

Songwriters are the poets of all times. They are archivists of history and call attention to societal issues by way of well crafted lyrical stories. Narrative artists are also record keepers of events of the past and present.

Listen is a collaboration of the narrative artist and poetic lyricist addressing political, ethical, and social issues. These may have been written about in the past and are still relevant concerns today. The artist will interpret and create a visual representation of these subjects. Though not literal, their work intends to inspire and inform the viewer from a particular perspective.

Join us for an opening reception on Saturday, May 16 from 6:00-10:00 pm. Art on display through July 11.

MENAGERIE…an exhibit with bite!

SLANT invites you to experience the wild side of art!

Mother Nature has filled the world with a vast array of creatures!  From the strange to the beautiful, on land, in the air and sea, there are animals we love and animals we fear. We have hunted them, and they have hunted us. While some become beasts of burden, others become our best friends. From those we pet, to those we protect, whether furry, feathered, finned, fanged, clawed, pawed or hoofed, we are fascinated with both real and imagined creatures of all kinds.

Participating artists: Sharon Neel Bagley, Rita Barnard, Angie Bolling, Anya Bosworth, Ariel Bowman, Liz Conrad, Du Chau, Vicki Charlotta, Suzanne Edmondson,  Jacque Forsher, Anna Fritzel, Kevin Gilmore, April Greenlee, Johanna Roffino Hulsey, Karen Jacobi, Laurie Mahoney, Margo Miller,  Kendall Scott, Bradley Strickland, Janet Welch, Derrick White, John Williams.

On display now through January 9, 2015
Additional view times are: Fridays. 6-8 pm, Saturdays 12-6 pm, and Sundays 12-4 pm.

SLANT is located at 13331 Preston Rd (LBJ & Preston) in Dallas, in the west wing of Dallas Midtown (Valley View).

Reduce – Reuse – Recycle

1415112202

Recycling, reusing, and repurposing has long been an important issue. We have become a “throw away” society. Excess has become a way of life. When is enough going to be enough? In response to wasting our natural resources, many artists have become assemblage sculptors and painters.

This exhibit honors those artists who have expressed themselves creatively through the use of mixed media and recycled materials.

Opening Reception: Saturday, November 15 from 6:00-9:00 pm
Exhibit on display through January 10th.
For additional information and view times, please visit our website at:
smallgallery.weebly.com

The Small Gallery is located in the west wing at Dallas Midtown (Valley View) at 13331 Preston Rd., in Dallas (LBJ & Preston).
