Not Listening
Not Listening, a solo exhibition by Scott Bell Not Listening hopes to describe the curse of our current over-stimulated culture. The works in the exhibition act as a visual representation of the struggle to be present while in a constant search for distraction. This will be Bell’s third solo show as a member of 500X.

Makin’ Groceries
Makin’ Groceries is a phrase I use which means to buy groceries. Inspired by a nostalgic memory, this work explores the phrase as an act of resourcefulness by using found objects and discarded materials to create something out of nothing. Bio: Jer’Lisa Devezin was born and raised in the Lower 9th ward of New Orleans, LA. She received her BA from Dillard University of New Orleans in 2011 and earned her MFA from Southern Methodist University, Dallas Tx. in 2019. Jer’Lisa’s practice is interdisciplinary with an emphasis in ceramics, metal, mixed media, and video/performance. Her experimental investigations through sculpture, and performance explore the relationships between physical labor, sexuality, and black womanhood. Much of her influence comes from the aesthetics and culture of the diaspora, specifically African and Haitian art, Black culture, and nostalgic memories of New Orleans. Jer’Lisa was an artist in residence with the Joan Mitchell Center of New Orleans, and her work has been presented at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. She currently works as instructional special in art and adjunct professor of Ceramics and Art appreciation with Dallas College and is also an adjunct faculty of Art Appreciation with Tarrant County College.

They Die Only to be Reborn Again They Die Only to be Reborn Again is an exhibition by Narong Tintamusik. Through large scale painting and sculpture, Tintamusik explores innocence, sexuality, and the metamorphosis of trauma. Deriving his lived experiences as a sexual abuse survivor, the work illustrates how life is being altered and corrupted. Using the emergence of springtime as a backdrop, stunted figures frolicked amongst beautiful flowers and lively insects. Water washes away the shame and guilt contained in tainted bodily secretions. This concoction of both fear and desire spring forth pollinators that seek to taste the nectar of the surrounding blooms. Once nature has run its course, the land went from abundance to desolation and back again. An endless cycle of life and death that offers both solitude and paralysis to Tintamusik. He desires to break this sequence within his lifetime to be reborn again.
