100+ MILLION MISSING Traveling Art Exhibit

11,000 Pairs of Handmade Baby Booties Go on Display in Dallas to Launch 100+ MILLION MISSING Traveling Art Exhibit

Exhibit features baby booties handmade by at-risk women in 30 developing countries 

100+ MILLION MISSING is a traveling art exhibit to raise awareness of gendercide and to combat the extreme devaluation of women that leads to gendercide. The exhibit will feature 11,000 pairs of handmade baby booties, each pair representing 10,000 “missing” women and girls due to gendercide. Demographic scholars estimate 100 million to 125 million females are missing in the world today. The booties are the work of 500 women from women’s cooperatives in 30 developing countries. Many of the cooperatives were formed by nonprofits to help vulnerable women by providing them fair pay for work. The women used their income from making the baby booties to buy better food, medical care and schooling for their children. Dallas area high school students and knitting groups also contributed.  

An “Artists Respond” section will highlight artwork produced by professional, gallery-exhibited artists from Dallas-Fort Worth and the international community, including gendercide-affected countries. Gendap.org requested the artists to offer their personal responses to gendercide and to the baby bootie installation.

Exhibit runs daily February 10 through February 15, 11am to 6pm

WHERE:
Fashion Industry Gallery, Dallas Arts District

OUR PURPOSE:

The United Nations Population Fund estimates that currently 100-125 million women and girls are missing in the world due to sex-selective abortions, female infanticide, gross neglect of girls, preventable maternal death, and lack of food and shelter for older women.

The Gendercide Awareness Project began in early 2011 when founder Beverly Hill of Dallas, Texas, recruited a team of volunteers to raise awareness about the little-known problem of gendercide. From 2011 to 2016 the Gendercide Awareness Project, a Dallas-based 501(c)3 charity focused on preventing gendercide, has educated the public while raising funds to purchase 11,000 pairs of baby booties. The organization focuses on two initiatives:

  1. For Women:  To provide modest financial support to at-risk women by commissioning baby booties from women’s cooperatives overseas, paying fair prices. To date, that income has allowed the women to provide 4,000 nourishing family meals — roughly 20,000 substantial individual meals.
  2. For Girls: To send at-risk girls to school in developing countries by supporting five schools for girls (or scholarship programs for girls) in Cambodia, Nepal, India, Uganda, and Guatemala. Each girl receives instruction, room, board (3 meals per day), health care, uniforms, and school supplies. 

Educating at-risk girls and empowering women with fair pay for work is critical to ending gendercide

HKS Inc. named architect for new UNT College of Visual Arts and Design building

HKS Inc. named architect for new UNT College of Visual Arts and Design building

DENTON (UNT), Texas – HKS Inc., one of the largest architectural firms in the U.S., has been named as lead architect, in association with design architect Lake|Flato Architects, for the University of North Texas College of Visual Arts and Design’s new building.

HKS Inc. is known for creating state-of-the-art, environmentally friendly structures that promote a sense of community. The firm has worked on such notable developments as the American Airlines Center and the W Dallas–Victory Hotel and Residences in Dallas, as well as UNT’s own Apogee Stadium. They will be partnering with other progressive companies to develop the project.

“HKS/Lake|Flato, along with Brightspot Strategy and our consultant team, are honored to be selected to provide programming services for UNT’s new College of Visual Arts and Design building,” said Mark Vander Voort, principal and senior vice president of HKS Inc. “HKS and Lake|Flato are a complementary and proven architectural team with a shared commitment to the design of vibrant, creative learning spaces. Brightspot is a strategic programming consultancy that partners with leading universities around the country to craft innovative, achievable strategies for their spaces, services and people.”

Greg Watts, the college’s dean, said he wants the public involved in the planning process for the new building. There will be multiple opportunities for students, faculty, staff and Denton residents – especially in the nearby area – to provide input.

“I believe that we are building a community,” Watts said. “The physical space will be our home – an iconic and transformational environment. It also will be a gateway between UNT and our neighbors, offering gallery spaces and unique cultural experiences.”

The UNT System Office of Facilities Planning and Construction is managing the project, and staff has scheduled strategy meetings and focus groups throughout February and March with UNT faculty and students to best assess needs. A program plan identifying a design approach is expected from HKS, Inc. this spring that will help develop a construction timeline.

The new CVAD building will be funded with $70 million in tuition revenue bonds approved by the Texas Legislature in spring 2013. Those funds may be supplemented by donors should the opportunity arise.

Watts said he is looking forward to having a new space to not only showcase the excellence of the CVAD’s students and faculty, but to provide opportunities for continued growth.

“This will be a site for creativity and innovation for art design thinkers and practitioners that is long overdue,” Watts said. “We are delighted that this project is underway.”

Experiment, Fabricate Online, Exhibit in NYC: Digital Fabrication Residency

Digital Fabrication Residency is a professional development program engaging artists with digital tools for project visualization and fabrication workflows for 3D printing, CNC routing, laser cutting, digital embroidery, textile printing, animation and other platforms. A core concept of this program is to engage in the digital craft of making as it concerns technology augmenting with traditional fabrication concepts, processes and materials. Residents learn software workflows and become knowledgeable in current applications of technology in the production of art. Residents accepted into the summer and fall programs will have the opportunity to exhibit artworks created in the program in an exhibition in NYC organized by Digital Fabrication Residency.

Our program consists of an Online Program that includes group workshops, individual project development, guest speakers and invaluable resource information for understanding digital fabrication workflows. We also offer an Online/Onsite residency that is specifically catered to individual project goals that develop initially through online project development finalizing with onsite learning with machines and fabrication with the artist. Both programs provide artists with limited licenses to selected software and optional 3D print, laser cut, textile print or digital embroidery resources. Also as part of our programing, Digital Fabrication Residency hosts online guest speaker presentations during the residency session that are open to residents and the public.

To learn more about the range of topics covered in DFR Group Workshops visit: http://www.digitalfabricationresidency.com/residency-workshops/

FOMO by Erika Jaeggli at WAAS Gallery

WAAS Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibit of new works, titled “FOMO”, by artist Erika Jaeggli. The gallery will host an artist reception from 6 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, May 9 and the exhibition will remain on view through Saturday, June 13.
fomo-erika-jaeggli
Jaeggli’s artistic output to date has been concerned with creating contemplative works and installations that address subjects of gender, economy and climate change. Continuing to use metaphor and visual storytelling as artistic material, Jaeggli’s work references both past and contemporary culture in “FOMO” (Fear of Missing Out). In large-scale charcoal drawings, she reinterprets sentiments of emptiness and angst found from the advent of postcards to present-day engagement with social media. The result is an intersection of modern culture with a highly contemplative imagination.

The gallery is open Sunday through Friday by appointment only, please call Brandy Michelle Adams at (626) 731-5683. Saturday from 12-5 p.m.

TWU Department of Visual Arts welcomes five artists working mainly with sculptural and assemblage elements for our next exhibition. Each artist uses nature, natural materials and human nature as a springboard to create work that reorganizes nature, plays games on assumptions and takes the commonplace and turns it on it’s head. Very different approaches to sculpture and an inventive use of materials bring these artists together in Supranatural Realistic.

Exhibition Dates: September 30 to October 22, 2014

Reception for the artists: September 30, 5-8 pm

TWU Department of Visual Arts welcomes three painters working in abstraction for our next exhibition. Each artist develops imagery in very unique ways, while still attending to formal elements of painting and composition.

Mackey_11_delicate.measure72

Michelle Mackey has exhibited her work recently at Holly Johnson Gallery in Dallas, Texas. Her works explore time and memory, the way that places, experiences and events are remembered/reinterpreted. The images in her work derive mainly from the physical structures in her environment. She states: “I look at the surface mix of cracked mortar, shiny metal, peeling paint, and rusty scaffolds; I hear the rhythmic distance from chimney to chimney, branch to branch, and window to window; I think of the structural soundness of repetition, from the frame to the brick. As I work, I periodically refer back to these environmental sources, as well as conversations, books, music, patterns and other sources for ideas on color, form, and composition.” These formal elements are presented in paintings that show the extremes of materials and techniques in the making. Sanding, scraping, burning, dissolving and rebuilt layers and the resulting textures and colors inform the barely discernible structures that the paintings started with. The artist received an M.F.A. from Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY (1999) and a B.A. from Furman University, Greenville, SC (1997). She currently divides her time between Brooklyn, NY and Dallas, TX.

 

McNeil_Moving_in_Retrograde_oil_2013 72

Marcelyn McNeil’s work is developed through a process of taping areas to be painted and pouring paint on canvas laid horizontally as well as vertically. This process is both formal and idiosyncratic. Simple clear forms are identified as she develops a work, forms that embody assertiveness, a kind of peculiarity, and vulnerability at the same time. The masses present in her work have a way of being both flat and dimensional. She is thinking about sculpture and three dimensionality continually as she paints, embracing trial and error while developing her peculiar animated forms. Marcelyn earned an M.F.A. from the University of Illinois, Chicago and a B.F.A. from the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon. She is represented by Conduit Gallery in Dallas, Texas and recently had a show of work there in 2014. Ms. McNeil lives and works in Houston, Texas.

Tady_Octagon Vibration Series_Oscillation Expansion 72-1

Lorraine Tady’s work incorporates mechanical-like systems that are subjected to or are participants in an indirect and formal examination of structure; or a subverted diagrammatic, engineering process. The paintings show evidence of searching line, rough outlines covered over and then brought back through scraping or sanding.

Corrections to the image and forms as they are developed are very important in the work. Ms. Tady states, “The language of line propels the work, and I use it to help make visible the parts, and to find the answer to ‘what connects to this, how is this connected to that, etc.” Lorraine is represented by Barry Whistler Gallery in Dallas, Texas. She has been included recently in “Parallel Process” at the gallery and had a solo exhibition there in 2013. Ms. Tady lives and works in Dallas, Texas.

The East l West Galleries are on the first floor of the Fine Arts Building, at the corner of Texas & Oakland streets (300 Texas Street), TWU campus in Denton, Texas, 76201.

Gallery hours are Monday – Friday, 9am to 4pm, when the university is in session. Weekends by appointment only.
