Beyond Natural

September 19-November 2, 2013

Guest Curated by Lisa Hatchadoorian

This group exhibition of eight contemporary artists from around the country combines sculpture, installation and ceramics that explore nature and botanical forms in all of their chaos, growth, human cultivation, decorative aspects, and fantastical artificial beauty. Re-creations and constructions of nature offer a rich dichotomy: they are painstakingly researched, but ultimately artificial. This tension between the natural and the simulated has been taken up by a number of contemporary artists, and the works assembled here explore the myriad ways that artists have shaped-or commented upon-our viewing of our natural world through various layers of decoration, fantasy, pattern, artifice and ornament.

@ UNT Art Gallery, Art 100 | Sep 19, 2013 | Submitted by UNT Art Galleries

The UNT Art Gallery invites you to an opening reception for Beyond Natural, an exhibition of contemporary art by eight national artists, curated by Lisa Hatchadoorian. 

Reception, 5-7 pm, UNT Art Gallery

Gallery Talk starting at 6 pm, with Lisa Hatchadoorian and participating artists Mari Andrews, Beverly Penn, Judy Hoffman, and Roberley Bell

 

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
The eight artists in Beyond Natural creatively obsess over nature and the environment. These contemporary artists from around the nation delve into and deconstruct nature, landscape, and botanical forms in all of their chaos, human cultivation, decorative aspects, and fantastic artificiality. Through their artworks, these artists explore the constantly changing role of human to nature as well as our impact on the landscape and the environment.

A dialogue around nature, environment, and art almost always places beauty as the central focus. The eight artists in Beyond Natural do not deny the power of beauty in nature, but they also seek to show another side of the conversation. With varied materials, from weighty bronze to ethereal collectables, these artists explore nature, including cultural myths associated with landscape as well as an ambivalence that often sits just below the surface in our relationship to the natural world.

ARTISTS
Mari Andrews, Karen Rich Beall, Roberley Bell, Gregory Euclide, Amy Gross, Judy Hoffman, Leigh Taylor Mickelson, Beverly Penn

CURATOR
Lisa Hatchadoorian was most recently the curator at the Nicolaysen Art Museum in Casper, WY, the only contemporary art museum in the state. She has a B.A. in Art History and Music from the University of Virginia and an M.A. in Curatorial Studies of Contemporary Art from Bard College. Ms. Hatchadoorian has over a decade of experience curating, conceiving, and writing about contemporary art exhibitions in the corporate, non-profit, and academic sectors. She has been a visiting lecturer at Casper College and has taught art appreciation at Rowan University in NJ. She has written reviews for New Art Examiner and Exit Express.

Reception for the Artists: February 22, 6:00 - 8:30 pm
 
On view: February 22 - March 16, 2013
 
Anya Tish Gallery is pleased to announce Dimensions Variable, a group exhibition asking the age-old question, "Does size matter?" Artists, Vincent Falsetta, Orna Feinstein, George Grochocki, Dmitri Koustov, Steve Murphy and Charlotte Smith, will each present multiple works in their established style but in a range of sizes, from small, intimate, tabletop pieces to large, wall filling works. As artists change their scale, will the work's content, context and/or meaning also change? Gallery visitors will be able to see and decide for themselves.
 
Vincent Falsetta has been successfully exhibiting work since 1972. A professor of painting at North Texas University, Falsetta is an abstract artist who focuses on a deliberate process of continuous linear flow of color. His painting process explores the physical qualities of the paint that convey an electric flow in every direction, all at once.  
 
Orna Feinstein has dedicated her artistic pursuits to the study of geometry found in nature through the traditional practice of monoprinting using non-traditional materials like Plexiglas, panels and fabric. No longer limited to a two-dimensional realm, Feinstein creates kinetic sculptures, site -specific installations and interactive works that move and vibrate into the space of the viewer.  
 
Working between the cities of Warsaw, Poland and Houston, Texas,
George Grochocki has constructed a body of work in the tradition of "one-image" systemic paintings. Grochocki purposefully limits himself to the colors white, black, silver and gold. For the artist, these colors are symbols that represent the notions of tranquility, confinement, separation and tension. Grochocki's work has a profound simplicity and elegance built upon his unique synthesis of color and form that forge a bridge between a scientific and an artistic understanding of the world.
 
Russian-born Dmitri Koustov is an intuitive artist of abstract oil paintings who now lives and works in College Station, TX. Through various processes and techniques, Koustov creates a composition riddled with movement and texture.
 
Geometric shapes have intrigued sculptor, Steve Murphy, since 1979. The contrast of industrial materials welded into sleekly curving sculptures allows his work to not only be strong but graceful. The constant exploration of scale in Murphy's work only enhances the maturity of his concepts.
 
The native Texan artist, Charlotte Smith, has generated a strong following for surface-centered paintings. With a fresh take on repetition, Smith takes painting from two dimensions to three through carefully layered blobs of paint that project from the surface while still revealing the colors that came before.

Artist Laura Beard Recursions Exhibition at Hunt Gallery
Opening Reception Friday, Jan.25, 2013
 
 
The Cecille R. Hunt Gallery at Webster University will present work by former St. Louis artist and educator Laura Beard, featuring a public opening reception on Friday, Jan. 25 from 6-8 PM at 8342 Big Bend Blvd.
 
Beard's work has been described by art critic Jeff Daniel as "having an ability to move forward while keeping a firm grip on art history's recent past." In a recent essay on Beard's current work, Robert Jessup writes:
"Composition in a picture comes down to the balance between the forces of expansion and the forces of contraction. Expansion taken to its extreme results in the all-over, homogeneous field. Contraction taken to its extreme results in a dot of infinite compression. These competing forces are ever at play in Beard's fields of marks. But so, too, is the play of time. In Beard's paintings, the viewer is always being tugged, pulled, pushed, started and stopped, and dragged along again. It also must be understood that the overall composition of the painting almost never aligns itself with the passive neutrality of the rectangle's horizontal and vertical aspects. There is always another force at play in Beard's paintings: the force of gravity acting on the painter/viewer herself. That is why there seems to always be a diagonal warping of the weavings of paint. Ultimately, in her paintings, the space begins and ends with the painter's (and the viewer's) physical being."
 
 

 
 
Prior to going to the University of North Texas in 2009, where Beard is an assistant professor of painting and drawing, she taught in the art departments of Webster University (1998-2009) and Washington University (2004-2009). Beard completed her BFA in painting and printmaking at Colorado State University in 1988, and earned the MFA in painting at University of Washington, Seattle (1990). Furthermore, she has a prolific and impressive exhibition portfolio - visit http://www.laurabeard.com for a complete list of her work.
 
Beard will discuss her work during an artist lecture, open to the public, on Friday, Jan. 25, Noon - 1pm in Sverdrup, room 101.
 
The exhibition will remain on view through February 23, 2013
 
Recursions is made possible in part through the generosity of Susan S. Block, and support from the Missouri Art Council, the Regional Arts Commission, the Santo Foundation and the Leigh Gerdine College of Fine Arts.

In the Year 2000
January 22 - March 8, 2013
Reception Friday, January 25, 5 - 7 pm

Moudy Gallery presents "In the Year 2000," a new-media and contemporary printmaking exhibition with work by Annie Bissett, Andrew DeCaen, Joshua Penrose, Austin Stewart, S.W.A.M.P., and Sang Mi-Yoo. These artists incorporate progressive technologies in their practice (including but not limited to: 3D printing, custom software development, interactive video projects, explosives, microprinted documents, wearable electronics, and robotics), or they utilize long-held traditional techniques at the service of contemporary social and political artistic speech. The themes expressed in the exhibition are partly lent by new-media's suitable application to a political viewpoint, but they also speak widely about to our collective memory of expectations of the future and what it might look like. Often, that vision of the future (or recent past) is one of environmental degradation, food shortages and limited global resources, sprawl, economic inequality, and war.

Annie Bissett (Massachusetts) employs traditional Japanese woodblock printing (moku hanga or ukiyo-e) to create imagery that conflates the flourished designs of paper money with language exposing the distance between the American Dream and the reality of the 99%.

Andrew DeCaen (Texas) creates prints and three-dimensional constructions with imagery that layers the social aspects of eating and sharing meals, an intimate and vital daily activity, with the ephemera and by-products of a global industry of food production.

Joshua Penrose (Ohio), trained in music composition and new media art, develops bridges between procedural sound art and interactive video installation.  His work may take the form of anything from fermenting mead (honey-wine) in a gallery to guerilla-installed audio devices at crosswalks in major cities.

Austin Stewart (Colorado) is currently portraying a fabricated character he calls "The Militant Gardener," wherein his work explores the way that modern devices of destruction or warfare can be hacked or controlled for more "green" purposes.  The scope of this work ranges from shotgun shells filled with wildflower seeds to robotic drones that survey a barren land looking for prime planting locations.

Sang-Mi Yoo (Texas) develops patterns in lasercut wool felt and screenprints based on her memory of the repetitive architectural forms of standardized residential neighborhoods as they first appeared in her birthplace of South Korea in the 1970s. Her project explores "how politics in education and urban planning have influenced our way of thinking and visual perceptions."

S.W.A.M.P. (Studies of Work Atmosphere and Mass Production; Michigan & New Zealand) is a collaborative entity focused on critical themes addressing the effects of global corporate operations, mass media and communication, military-industrial complexes, and general meditations on the liminal area between life and artificial life. SWAMP has been making work in this vein since 1999 using a wide range of media, including custom software, electronics, mechanical devices, and often times working with living organisms.

Event | UNT's Inagural Quiz Bowl Tournament Deadline Extended

@ CVAD | Nov 5, 2012 - Nov 13, 2012 | Submitted by ADMIN

Student Activities and Alpha Chi Honor Society are hosting UNT’s inaugural NAQT Quiz Bowl tournament on November 16 and 17, and we would appreciate your assistance in getting the word out to students. For those of you who are not familiar, this is a national program that we have adopted this year. Teams of four students compete in a question and answer game of general knowledge and quick recall. Game questions cover a range of topics from history and science to sports and popular culture. There are prizes for the top two teams. The deadline to register is 5pm on Friday, November 9, or until 7 more teams sign up (whichever comes first). Students may sign up in teams or as individuals, to be placed on a team. More information and registration forms can be found at http://studentactivities.unt.edu/programs.

 

In order for this event to be successful, we need UNT Faculty and Staff members to volunteer at the event in a variety of roles, from moderating (reading the questions/running the game) to scorekeeping. There will be a mandatory volunteer training session on Monday, November 12, at 3pm (done by 4:30pm; location TBD) to help familiarize volunteers with the tournament set up. We will attempt to provide a backup training for those who cannot make it on November 12. Faculty and staff interested in volunteering at any point during the tournament can sign up at http://studentactivities.unt.edu/programs.

Wood fired lidded jar with blue and brown salt glaze.In his 38th year at the University of North Texas, Regents Professor of Art Elmer Taylor shares in this exhibition four decades of pottery and other elements that tell the story of form. The show concentrates on selected ceramic pieces from 2010-2012 that meet Taylor's exacting standards in melding the inherent qualities of clay and glaze with the craftsman's skill. Historical pieces chronicle influences on and references from Taylor's decades-long practice, including collected pottery, 1940s era handmade Japanese furniture, photographs, and memorabilia. For Taylor, from the neon in his hometown city of Los Angeles, to his experience pheasant hunting in Nebraska and his love of writing with a fountain pen, his pots need to reflect who he is and what he has experienced. Early, during his apprenticeship in England with Master Potter Michael Leach, Taylor learned to set a standard to meet each day in the studio -- a practice he has imparted to thousands of students at UNT and continues to demonstrate today.

Mirrored glass sculpture by Austin Ballard, titled "Scaffolding: Character Study"

Austin Ballard, Scaffolding (Character Study), 2011, mirrored glass and sewn plastic pennants, 6 x 3 x 11 inches. 

Contemplating Limits is a group exhibition featuring sculptures by Austin Ballard (North Carolina), photographs by Robin Dru Germany (Texas), and paintings by Kirsten Macy (Texas and California) and Gary Passanise (Missouri). The works in this exhibition convey ideas about structure, where structure may be thought of as the cultural, physical, and political elements of human life that manifest as expectations, perceptions, and histories. The artists' viewpoints evoke questions about the truth of these elements and invite us to consider how we relate to the moody and otherworldly images before us. Through varied processes, each artist engages with ideas of structure as ethereal propositions, revealing inherent limitations in the ways we shape and frame human experience.

She has published two books, Observation and Image-Making in Gothic Art (Cambridge, 2005), awarded the 2009 John Nicholas Brown prize by the Medieval Academy of America, and Visualizing Medieval Medicine and Natural History, 1220-1550 (Ashgate U.K., 2006), co-edited with historians of science Karen M. Reeds and Alain Touwaide. A third project—Reading beyond the Text: Image, Word, and the Illustrated Tractatus de Herbis—is nearing completion. Professor Givens’ research has received the generous support of fellowships and grants from the American Council of Learned Societies, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the J. Paul Getty Foundation, the American Philosophical Society, and the University of Connecticut. Her current project, Marketing Modernism: Sweden, Denmark, and the Good Life, addresses a formative alliance between design theoreticians and Nordic policy makers between 1920 and 1960.  Professor Givens attended the University of California at Berkeley and the University of Lund, Sweden. Her degrees include a B.A. in Graphic Design as well as the Ph.D. in History of Art.

Nick Cave

The UNT Art Galleries and the UNT Institute for the Advancement of the Arts have partnered to host visual artist Nick Cave as the 2011-2012 Artist in Residence, commissioning Cave to create a new work of public art at UNT. Internationally recognized for his Soundsuits and for working with communities to choreograph public performances, Cave is creatiing a new performance piece to take place on campus in March. The piece, titled Heard, involves 30 horses running through the grounds, being corralled by 50-100 percussionists, and breaking apart into 60 hybrid beings that move in increased improvisation. The creation of the horse suits, choreography, musical score and performance are the result of Nick Cave's collaboration with UNT students and faculty in visual art, dance, theater, and music, as well as the surrounding community. 

Nick Cave works between sculpture, installation, performance, video, designed object, and fashion.  He is professor and chairman of Fashion Design a the School of the Arts Institute Chicago. He has had numerous one person exhibitions, notably a traveling exhibition, Nick Cave: Meet Me at the Center of the Earth, organized by the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. Awards include the Joan Mitchell Foundation Award, Artadia Award, United States Artist Award, Joyce Foundatin Joyce Award, and Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award. Cave's works are in many art collections, including the Brooklyn Museum of Art, NY; Birmingham Museum of Art, AL; Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, IL; and the Studio Museum in Harlem, NY. Cave is represented by Jack Shainman Gallery in New York.

Jill Downen's site-responsive sculpture installations consider the interdependent, metaphoric and physical relationships between human bodies and the spaces they build, inhabit and repair. Through the phenomena of temporality and perception, Downen sees in built spaces a prolongation of self-of human energy, forms and decay. Her recent project, Counterparts, at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, is described as a site of wonder. Downen's art interprets a particular space by exploring its identity. Her investigation of the UNT Art Gallery, Dust and Distance, reveals a room that "breathes between the expanse of the reflective floor and the gridded weight of the concrete ceiling." This results in a place of retreat, where body, mind and architecture intersect.

Jill Downen's art is a focused investigation of the symbiotic relationship between the human body and architecture expressed in temporal installations, drawings, and models.  Her art envisions a place of interdependent relation between the human body and architecture, where the exchanging forces and tensions of construction, deterioration, and restoration emerge as thematic possibilities. In 2010, Downen was named a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation fellow. Significant awards include a 2009 MacDowell Colony National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship with additional support from Leon Levy Foundation and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. In 2007, she was awarded a Cité International des Arts Residency, Paris, France where she first exhibited "Hybrida" an ongoing series of works on paper. Downen was selected for the 2004 Great Rivers Biennial, a grant and exhibition sponsored by Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis and the Gateway Foundation.  Downen has been invited to lecture about her work extensively, including at The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C. and the 2007 Luce Irigaray Circle Conference on philosophy in New York.  In addition, the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts in St. Louis has invited her participation in symposiums on modern and contemporary art. Downen maintains a studio in St. Louis, MO, and is represented by the Bruno David Gallery.  She holds a BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute and an MFA as a Danforth Scholar from Washington University.

The 5th annual Collections, Cultures, and Collaborations exhibition features highlights from the CVAD permanent collection, along with excerpts of related research papers by CVAD Art History graduate students under the direction of Dr. Jennifer Way.  The Collections research and exhibition series was created in 2007 by Dr. Way, Associate Professor of Art History, and Rina Kundu, then Lecturer in Art Education, in collaboration with the UNT Art Gallery.

The series has engaged with important Texas collections, including The Rachofsky Collection, the Flatbed Press Collection, and the Neiman Marcus Art collection, as well as our own. Artists in this exhibition are Vernon Fisher, Nic Nicosia, Willem de Kooning, Judy Chicago, Anri Sala, Patrick Caulfield, Robert Motherwell, Henri Chopin, Eduardo Paolozzi, and Cindy Sherman.

The CVAD permanent collection has grown from its beginnings in the early 1970s through gifts from donors such as the Pepsi Bottling Company and the Martin S. Ackerman Foundation. Past and present faculty, including Don Scaggs, Judy Youngblood, Jerry Austin, Harlan Butt, and Vernon Fisher, have generously donated their to this collection. By actively collecting works from students throughout the years, we are building a relevant and rich history of the arts at UNT.

ART gives BACK
 
Dear Artist,

Art Gives Back is your opportunity to help the city of Plano libraries in these tough times, as well as make a little bit of cash and raise your profile.

 

The Plano Art Association has partnered with the Plano library system to create a new community art exhibit to be displayed in all Plano libraries.


Sales of the artworks will be split between the artist and the library, who will use it to buy art books.


The Details

The PAA has purchased fifty 4" x 4" canvasses, ready to be turned into beautiful small artworks that will be displayed in an exhibit that moves between the libraries in Plano.  

 

They will be sold for $50 ($25 will go to the artist, and $25 to the Library), and will also feature on an online page, complete with a Purchase button, so everyone will be able to see the works and details of the artist.

 

This is a fun way to bring art further into the everyday lives of the community, and the free-standing, mobile "art cart" will be very eye-catching and beautiful.

 

We only have fifty slots available, so if you would like to take part please email us at planoartassoc@gmail.com with the subject line "I'm In!".


You can then collect a canvas (we are asking for a $5 payment at the time you collect the canvas to help us cover the cost), and have your completed work available by the May 31st deadline.

 

The exhibit opens in early June, and we will have an inaugural event to celebrate the launch of the Art Gives Back program!

 

Interested? Email us at planoartassoc@gmail.com with the subject line "I'm in!" and we'll mail you further instruction!

 

Thank you for caring for this precious public resource, and we look forward to seeing your artwork!

 

Warm regards,

 

The PAA's Art Gives Back team:

Ann Marie Newman, representing the North 40 Storytelling Guild of Plano, tells the tale "Anansi Tries to Steal all the Wisdom of the World," incorporating African masks.

Decee Cornish is an award-winning storyteller, recognized by the Griots of Johannesburg, South Africa, as an "Urban Griot," or oral historian, who holds a Coming Up Taller Award for work with at-risk kids, has seen five of seven continents, and has been telling stories for nearly a decade.

Toni Simmons is an author and international storyteller, whose children's book The Cheese Chase: Why Dogs Chase Cats is winner of the iParenting Media Award and who was designated by the National Endowment for the Arts and as American Masterpiece touring artist.

Ryan Attaway, a student teller in the 5th grade at WS Ryan Elementary in Denton and a member of Campfire Tellers since the 3rd grade, will tell a story that combines the well-known "Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears" by Verna Aardema, combined with a lesser known West African tale dealing with the topic of slavery.

To hear more stories and attend workshops on how to tell your own, you may visit the 26th Annual Texas Storytelling Festival March 10-13, 2011, at the Denton Civic Center.  For more information, www.tejasstorytelling.com.

@ UNT Art Gallery | Mar 1, 2011 - Mar 26, 2011 | Submitted by UNT Art Gallery

Curated by Lesli Robertson, Lecturer, Fibers

This exhibition presents the work of an international group of artists and designers, who engage with one material: bark cloth. Material Evolution highlights the centuries-old process of making cloth from the bark of mutuba trees in Uganda, Africa—a process that persists in the realm of the handmade and, in the last 20 years, has enjoyed a cultural and commercial resurgence in Uganda and abroad. Working through personal experience with bark cloth, the artists translate this material into a new form, helping to ensure its cultural survival and exploring understanding of what a material can signify.

@ UNT ART Gallery | Nov 9, 2010 - Dec 18, 2010

Black and White Photograph of a woman in the dining room by Lupita Murillo TinnenThe year 2010 has been filled with festivities in commemoration of the centennial of the Mexican revolution and the bicentennial of the Mexican independence movement against Spain. Commemoration of heritage and nation can also lead to an investigation into notions of remembrance and nostalgia.

The term "recuerdo" can refer to both experienced memory and an object that conjures remembrance in the personal and collective mind and that can be used to commemorate heritage and nationality. A "recuerdo" can be evoked by color, sight, smell, etc, and can stimulate nostalgia for a past time or a present, but fleeting moment. 

The artists in this exhibition incorporate elements of nostalgia either remembered or captured through objects and locations both private and public where cultural commonalities and shared experiences exist. Their works attempt to capture heritage on the periphery of everyday existence.

Curated by Suzanne Ramljak and organized by the Center for Craft, Creativity and Design, a regional center of the University of North Carolina, this traveling exhibition explores the distinctions and commonalities between jewelry and blacksmithing, two realms of metalsmithing that rarely interact despite their shared medium, including 40 objects by 14 national artists.  Together these objects reveal the engaging range of works arising from both the jeweler's bench and the blacksmith's forge, spanning wearable ornament to large-scale sculpture.

Rudolph Blume Fine Art ArtScan Gallery is pleased to invite you to a show of paintings by Denton's Matthew Bourbon. In the fractured narrative world of his paintings, at first we see human beings existentially detached from one another. The figures that populate Bourbon's world are often defined by abstracted shapes and lines, creating individuals that are masked and trapped in the picture plane. The viewer then becomes aware of the bourgeois, domestic settings these figures inhabit. Relationships emerge and are defined less by emotional content than by expressionistic gestures like geometric abstraction, loose brushstrokes or blobs of color. Bourbon's paintings are marked by his gift for creating a world filled not just with characters that are existentially fraught, but also with the charged space between them.

Exhibition, Film, Symposium
April 8th and 9th

The Open Shutter Iraq project is part of the Contemporary Arab and Muslim Cultural Studies Institute’s commitment to support cultural activities and programs at UNT and the larger community of North Texas.

Project description:
The Open Shutter Iraq project includes an exhibition, film, panel discussion, and a one-day symposium.
A 102 minute feature documentary, OPEN SHUTTERS IRAQ (directed by Maysoon Pachachi) will be screened on Thursday April 8th.
Directed by Eugenie Dolberg, the exhibition examines the human reality of war, behind the collective headlines, through the eyes of 9 women. The exhibition is mounted at the UNT on the Square Gallery, April 7-May 14. It consist of nine photographic essays and writing by women from all over Iraq, of different social and political backgrounds with no previous photographic experience, examining the lived experience of war and occupation and telling their story in their own voices--the human reality of war, behind the collective headlines.
On April 9th, a one-day seminar on Oral literature and ritual culture in Muslim Middle East and South Asia is planned, and followed by a discussion panel with the film director and project director.
The day will end with the exhibition opening reception at 5:30.
 
Film Synopsis
The film documents a remarkable photography project; a group of women, from five cities in Iraq, live and work together in a traditional courtyard house in the Old City of the Syrian capital, Damascus. There they learn to take photographs, and at the same time, present their ‘life maps’ to each other; large charts full of family photos, scrawled poetry and quotations, the names of emotions and crisscrossing green, red and black marker lines, detailing all the ups and downs, forwards and reverses of their lives. With grief, humor, defiance, the women are able to unearth memories and tell stories, which have remained buried for 30 years in the course of just trying to survive devastating years of war, dictatorship and sanctions. In the end, they have woven together the threads of their individual lives into a collective fabric.  And because this is a creative project, the experience is transformative; the act of remembering and listening is dynamic and productive.
 
As one woman says, ‘It is our feelings taking the pictures, not us’.

Event | Modern Ruin

@ Dallas TX | Feb 20, 2010 - Feb 21, 2010 | Submitted by Admin

MODERN RUIN

February 20-21, 2010
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 20, 8-11pm
 5030 Greenville Avenue, Dallas, TX just south of Lovers Lane)

On Thursday, September 25, 2008 the U.S. Government took over Washington Mutual, selling most of it to JPMorgan Chase.
 
Roughly a year earlier, at the height of a frenzied economic bubble, Washington Mutual began building a new 1 million dollar branch at 5030 Greenville Avenue, just south of Lovers Lane. Just after its completion, the government seized WaMu, and JPMorgan Chase decided not to occupy the building.
 
The new building was never opened, never used, and has sat as an empty shell for more than a year.
 
On February 20, 2010, Modern Ruin-a two-day exhibition organized by Christina Rees and Thomas Feulmer-will open. The two-day exhibition will be the only use for the million-dollar building before the demolition process begins the following week. The bank building is a truly modern ruin - a building that never met its purpose, and only existed as potential activity, potential economy, and hoped-for growth.
 
Seeking to take advantage of the space-its social and cultural connotations, its materials, and its presence as direct and immediate evidence of the current economic condition-15 artists will create work inspired by and in dialogue with the building. Some artists will alter the building's materials and corporate interior, while others will stage actions and interventions within, and still others will use the background of the space as context for their work.
 
Artists in the exhibition :
 
Frances Bagley
Tim Best
Michael Corris
Thomas Feulmer
Annette Lawrence
M
Margaret Meehan
Tom Orr
Richard Patterson
Cam Schoepp
Noah Simblist
Christoph Trendel
Terri Thornton
Kevin Todora
Jeff Zilm
 
Please join us for the opening reception/intervention with the artists the night of Saturday, Feb. 20, 2010, 8-11pm. The exhibition will be open to the public on February 20th and 21st, 12-5pm, though in the case of some artists the work left behind will be documentation of the actions that took place the night before.

Event | On the Body: Selected Work from The Rachofsky Collection

@ UNT Art Gallery | Dec 15, 2009 | Submitted by Victoria DeCuir
On the Body: Selected Work from The Rachofsky Collection presents works in a variety of media that raise questions about the human body and how we understand it as a physical, social and scientific presence in the world. With this focus, the exhibition stays true to one of the Collection's concentrations: works that have a decidedly psychological and personal dimension.

During the fall semester, graduate students in "Museum Education" and "Methodologies of Art History and Visual Culture," studied the artworks included in On the Body from many different perspectives. Their research will be featured in the exhibition's interpretative materials and public programs.

This exhibition continues the "Collections, Cultures and Collaborations" series at the College of Visual Arts and Design, a project in which graduate art education and art history students create original scholarship on works in a private, public or corporate collection. This is the first collaborative exhibition between The Rachofsky House and a local university.

Reception, 6:30 pm / Lecture, 7:00 pm

EcoArtTech was founded by Cary Peppermint and Leila Christine Nadir in2005 as a collaborative platform for art-making that merges environmental concerns with digital technologies. EcoArtTech is a 2009 Artist Fellowship recipient of the New York Foundation for the Arts.  Their most recent works include Untitled Landscape #5, a digital environmental piece commissioned by the Whitney Museum of Art for its website, and Eclipse, an internet-based work commissioned by Turbulence of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc.

By examining how digital technologies can make ecological problems more salient, by reusing or recycling obsolete technologies for new uses, and by exploring how digital spaces and the public domain may require environmental protection, much like nature, EcoArtTech engages in re-imagining the relationship between nature and technology.

About Fluid Frontier

EcoArtTech will be in residence at the College of Visual Arts and Design at UNT as part of a year-long exploration of the environment as an ongoing personal, geographical and cultural experience.  This exploration is titled Fluid Frontier, a residency, exhibition and symposium program organized by CVAD in conjunction with the 3rd biennial water conference at UNT, WaterWays 2010 organized by the Philosophy of Water Project.  Look for more Fluid Frontier programming March 3 - 5, 2010.  Fluid Frontier is supported in part by grants from the Texas Commission on the Arts, UNT Fine Arts Series, CVAD Gallery and Visiting Artist and Scholar Committee, and Wells Fargo.

Visiting scholar Dr. Elizabeth Mansfield

From Plato to Plastic Surgery: Artists and Ideal Beauty

Few tales of artistic triumph can rival the story of Zeuxis Selecting Models. Recorded in antiquity, the legend tells of the Greek painter Zeuxis and his attempt to paint an image of the famous beauty, Helen of Troy. When he realized that a single model could not match Helen’s mythic perfection, he combined the best features of five different women to create an ideal image. Revived during the Renaissance, the story of Zeuxis Selecting Models dramatizes the West’s preoccupation with idealization in art. In this lecture, Elizabeth Mansfield will present new interpretations of artworks by Angelica Kauffman, Pablo Picasso and Orlan to show that the Zeuxis legend can be understood not only as a theory of art making but as the record of a cultural primal scene, manifesting the West’s long-standing ambivalence toward mimetic representation and the ideal.

Join CVAD Visiting Artist Trenton Doyle Hancock--Monday June 29 at 8:30 am in ART room 226

 Trenton Doyle Hancock was born in 1974 in Oklahoma City, OK. Raised in Paris, Texas, Hancock earned his BFA from Texas A&M University, Commerce and his MFA from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University, Philadelphia. Hancock’s prints, drawings, and collaged felt paintings work together to tell the story of the Mounds—a group of mythical creatures that are the tragic protagonists of the artist’s unfolding narrative. Each new work by Hancock is a contribution to the saga of the Mounds, portraying the birth, life, death, afterlife, and even dream states of these half-animal, half-plant creatures. Influenced by the history of painting, especially Abstract Expressionism, Hancock transforms traditionally formal decisions—such as the use of color, language, and pattern—into opportunities to create new characters, develop sub-plots, and convey symbolic meaning.

@ UNT Art Gallery | May 16, 2009 - Jun 20, 2009 | Submitted by Tracee Robertson

The Hock Shop Collection: Reflections from the Heart and Soul

Over the last 25 years, A.C. "Ace" Cook, a former airline pilot, pawn shop operator and true Texan, has developed a nationally renowned collection of early Texas art, which he displays on the walls of the Bull Ring, his ice cream and beer parlor in the Fort Worth Stockyards.

Paintings from the collection have been in major exhibitions, including: the Amon Carter Museum, the Los Angeles Autry National Center, the Panhandle-Plains Museum, the Denton Center for the Visual Arts, the Tyler Museum of Art and the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts.

The exhibition at the UNT Art Gallery focuses on the narratives and stories that weave together the soul of Mr. Cook's legendary collection. He generously shared those stories with a graduate student in the College of Visual Arts and Design.

The University of North Texas Art Gallery and the Crow Collection of Asian Art continue their partnership with Wenda Gu, internationally acclaimed sculptor and installation artist, bringing him to North Texas to work with College of Visual Arts and Design students and talk about his recent projects.  Wenda Gu first visited UNT in 2003 when he created an original installation at CVAD titled “From Middle Kingdom to Biological Millennium” and participated in a symposium titled “Transnation: Contemporary Art and China,” moderated by art historian Dr. Jennifer Way.  Inspired by funders for the original project who called for the creation of an ongoing relationship with an artist, the UNT Art Gallery and the CVAD proudly join again with the Crow Collection of Asian Art to engage with Wenda Gu and share his extraordinary vision with students and the public.
