November 14
Teresa Hubbard / Alexander Birchler, an artist couple based in Austin and Berlin, have been working collaboratively in film, photography, and sculpture since 1990. Their suggestive work invites open-ended reflections on place and cinema and, as stated by Jordan Amirkhani in Daily Serving, is “propelled by the artists’ fascination with the open circuits of social life, memory, and history that sit just outside the frame of moving images.”

For Tuesday Evenings, Hubbard / Birchler discuss Grand Paris Texas, the 2008 video piece commissioned by the Modern and described by Jeffrey Kastner for Artforum as interweaving “the physical and social space of a dead cinema, a forgotten song and the inhabitants of a small town,” in relation to their most recent works, Flora and Bust, featured in the Swiss Pavilion of the 57th Venice Biennale for the exhibition Women of Venice, curated by Philipp Kaiser.

Summer Photo and Video Camps for Kids, Teens and Adults

The Dallas Center for Photography has created two programs focused on kids and teens scheduled in June and July. Both programs are broken out into different sessions for similar age groups and run over five days.

  • The DCP Summer Photo Camps teach students how to create pictures with the materials and technique that have been used to make photographs for over 150 years, including digital technology and hands-on methods.  Details and registration can be found here.
  • The DCP Summer Video Camps teach kids skills about making little movies using whatever technology available to them. The workshop covers hands-on production, shooting and editing of an individual mini-movie and a larger group project.
Details and registration can be found here. 

Since adults don’t get to play often enough, we are also offering a summer photo camp for adults. It covers similar handmade photography techniques as the program for kids and teens and is spread out over four consecutive Sunday afternoons. More details here
The Dallas Center for photography has been the leading photographic training center in Dallas for six years. Our workshops cover a range of styles, subjects and aspirations, always encouraging experimentation. We also provide movie nights, gallery shows, and events, for community building, and to engage and inspire.
Dallas Center for Photography is located near I35 and Inwood, about 3 miles north of downtown Dallas, Texas: 4756 Algiers, Dallas, 75207

LuminArte Presents: Terra Firma Architecture and Landscape May 9th – June 20th, 2015

LuminArte presents an international exhibition of paintings, photography and video ranging from plein air compositions to surreal landscapes and architectural abstractions.

This eclectic exhibition of artworks, depicting views of the natural world juxtaposed with cityscapes, opens on May 9th with an artist reception from 7:00 – 10:00PM and runs through June 20th. Artists include Jesus Barranco Mora, Jose Vincent Cascale, Alvin Gill-Tapia, Bonnie Teitelbaum, Al Wildey, Teri Starkweather, Michael Carlyle, Mark Ashton Vey, Norma Drimmer, Judith Seay, Jim Pescott and Richard Vaux. Both the reception and exhibition are free and open to the public.

Mark Ashton Vey _Canyons
Based in Valencia, Spain, Jesus Barranco Mora and Jose Vincent Cascale both depict architecture and landscape in vibrant compositions, focused on the more sublime atmospheric elements that create awe inspiring depictions of our modern relationship between civilization and nature. In a similar fashion, Santa Fe artists Alvin Gill-Tapia and Bonnie Teitelbaum explore other stages of this experience, with Gill-Tapia illustrating the sensual, organic nature of Southwester adobe structures, while Teitelbaum embodies landscape through a more abstract expressionist mode, reminiscent of the painterly applications of J.M.W. Turner.

Within the plein air works of Mexico based artist, Michael Carlyle, we find references to Impressionism, expressed through dynamic brushstrokes and vibrant color schemes. Canadian artist, Jim Pescott takes the impressionist style to another level through his “dot paintings,” which are centered on light, shadows and colors; while the brightly hued, textural images by LA artist, Teri Starkweather promote a more serene, elegant vision of nature’s splendor.

As we descend further into abstraction, we find the archetypal landscapes of Richard Vaux. Based in New York, Vaux combines dry media such as charcoal with acrylic to create a vast, surreal horizon, combining elements of a spiritual imagery with grounded portrayals of the physical world. On the other side of the Surrealist spectrum are the animated scenes of British artist, Mark Ashton Vey. Vey began his career in the music industry as the front-man for the band, Rare Bird, which traveled worldwide and opened for such acts as The Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd. Now living and working in Nice, France, Vey considers his style of painting “Art Musicalism” and has numerous international collectors, including Julian Lennon.

In the abstract photography of Michigan artist, Al Wildey, one can observe the hustle and bustle of modern life, as viewed through the lens of this experienced international photographer. The almost frantic perspective and overlay of imagery makes the architectural subject seem alive, pulsating and filled with movement. Norma Drimmer,a multimedia artist based in Berlin, Germany incorporates similar techniques while utilizing multiple images to form unearthly landscapes, produced by combining detailed forms with distant perspectives.

Dallas artist, Judith Seay is the metallic Matisse of the group, forming transcendental forests of gold and silver leaf. Inspired by natural colors, shapes and textures, Seay loves to combine elements to make a composition that is intriguing and meaningful.

FRAMING DESIRE: Photography and Video
Feb 21, 2015 – Aug 23, 2015

The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth presents FRAMING DESIRE, an exhibition showcasing over 40 recent acquisitions alongside iconic photographs and videos from the permanent collection. The Museum has acquired key works by Cory Arcangel, Artemio, Larry Clark, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Rineke Dijkstra, Debbie Grossman, Candida Höfer, Misty Keasler, Ragnar Kjartansson, Robert Mapplethorpe, Gordon Matta-Clark, Ryan McGinley, Nicholas Nixon, Catherine Opie, Orit Raff, Laurie Simmons, Allison V. Smith, Arne Svenson, Frank Thiel, and Gillian Wearing.

Andrea Karnes, curator of FRAMING DESIRE, comments, “This exhibition highlights several of the most important contemporary artists of the last four decades, with a number of new acquisitions that meaningfully add context to the Modern’s growing collection in the areas of photography and video.” Karnes adds, “The artists included here explore the premise of desire, a topic that has been investigated in art in intriguing ways for centuries. The works are grouped into three themes of desire: Ages, Rooms, and Scapes. These updated takes on the traditional subjects of portraiture, architecture, and landscape make the well-traversed themes seem more magnified and provocative, especially when they are couched within the framework of desire.”
