Blinders  
Love Texas Art - Blinders | Works by Jacob Lovett
Exhibition on Display: September 10 - November 6, 2022
The gallery will be open Noon – 8pm, with the artist reception from 6-9pm. In the series Blinders, Lovett explores the concept of truth and our individual journey to find it. He beautifully and delicately renders bronc and bull riders clinging to their opponent, both rider and animal in independent although tethered struggle. Through these works, Lovett is depicting the sometimes-violent struggle to find truth, both with ourselves and with forces in the world around us. In a clean greyscale color palette against crisp white backgrounds, Lovett brings the terms Western and Modern together in each of his 20 oil paintings. Join us on Fall Gallery Night as we celebrate his hard work and first solo exhibition.

Artspace111 - Paradigm Shift | Works by Ender Martos
Exhibition on Display: September 10 – October 29, 2022
Artspace111 presents Paradigm Shift, by Texan-Venezuelan artist Ender Martos. A paradigm shift is an intense transformative process that lacks a true beginning, middle, and end. Martos’ upcoming show celebrates this concept through a carefully thought-out presentation of curated wall pieces created through the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as a brand new series where the artist explores new materials that help convey a sensation of shifting process and movement. The exhibit will showcase dynamic three-dimensional wall sculptures created with monofilament, colored acrylic mirror and other media. In the pursuit of elevating our perspectives, Martos’ artworks often call for unchoreographed movement from viewers. As with some of the pieces, motions...

Exhibition on Display: June 3 - July 30, 2022 | Works by Becky Wilkes
Artist Statement: Seldom are we privileged to witness the final journey of love between our parents in intimate detail. Till Death Do Us Part shares the tender and mature relationship between two 89 year-olds reconnected following near death experiences. After 67 years of marriage, COVID-19 created an untenable situation for my parents. Mom was recovering from a recent stroke and was discharged to live independently. Dad suffered from congestive heart failure and was newly placed on hospice within the same facility. When lockdowns eliminated our participation in their care and illuminated systemic failures, we moved them to our home in Azle, Texas.

Cufflink Art - possible magic
Exhibition on Display: March 26 through May 21, 2022 | Adam Fung
Adam Fung’s exhibition, possible magic, examines how we navigate our trajectory within the Anthropocene’s precarious states. Primarily using painting as means to survey the condition of the planet, Fung utilizes an array of research interests that touch upon issues such as eco-anxiety, climate change, the history of landscape imagery, and interconnected systems also known as hyperobjects. Intentionally working with oil paint, these slow moving, layered surfaces are a resistance to the slickness, speed, and expectations of the digital world or media we encounter daily. Each painting is executed with deliberate attention to surface, saturated color pallets, paint application, variety of linen textures, and the use of absorbent or reflective grounds.

Hello 2021  
TranSystems Corporation Gallery - Their Neck of the Woods
Exhibition on Display: March 4 - 26, 2022 | Works by Amber Hart
I grew up in a small Louisiana neighborhood where neighbors became close friends, and the social events were frequent with an open invitation. In 2012, my perspective on the suburbia lifestyle shifted dramatically. Dallas's suburbs sit at a constant building stage and was an introduction into the reality of “cookie cutter” homes. My neighborhood acted as a subway station and me and my neighbors were just passengers waiting for the right platform to get off at. I began to realize that the homes were built as temporary holding spaces. Social events are few and far in between. Just a passive aggressive strong odor of barbeque from a few houses down would let you know that one was close by. These two drastically different environments led me to...

The Sh'ma Project: Move Against Hate, harnesses the power of the arts to teach young adults about the Holocaust and human rights. Sh'ma – which means 'listen' in Hebrew -- comes from the central prayer of the Jewish liturgy. The Sh'ma Project entreats the audience to listen and respond to one family's story of the Holocaust using three different approaches: dance film, Upstander Workshops, and free Open Educational Resources. The Sh'ma Project creates a safe space for young adults to learn about the Holocaust and to explore, identify, and ultimately reject hate speech and behaviors that lead to atrocities and genocide.

Joshua Reiman is a sculptor and filmmaker. His films deal with themes of exploration, artistic expression, race, nature, and contextual inquiry. His short films offer an array of lush landscapes with characters that guide audiences through layered conceptual ideas about art, history, and popular culture. Within a spatial sculptural practice, I seek to produce thoughtful physical objects, installations, and cinematic experiences that instigate reflective moments for an audience. I work with themes of personal and cultural identity through conceptual and material inquiry. I assess how fictional or historical narratives can frame or scaffold an artwork. Through experiential learning, my practice stands at a crossroads of theatrical simulation and challenging...

Greg Brown  
Texas Artists Coalition - Artist Spotlight - Greg Brown
Greg Brown was born in Washington, D.C., in 1969, but grew up in the Dallas area. From 1993-2001 he worked for Neiman Marcus at the downtown Dallas location as the Men's Designer Sportswear specialist. When he left the store, he had many Gianni Versace ties he didn't want to discard, especially since Versace had been murdered in 1997. In 2007, Greg had the idea to paint with the ties. Thru trial-and-error, what has been created is a collection of Versace Tie Paintings. Each canvas is painted in correspondence to a certain tie and then the tie is permanently attached. Most importantly, each tie is pre-death, which Gianni himself had a hand in creating. As time goes by, though, these ties are becoming less accessible. Over the years, Greg's paintings have been shown in many galleries and featured in the American Airlines' Admirals Clubs in Miami and Chicago.

The Animalis Works team, artists Dharmesh Patel and Autumn Ewalt, was inspired by the revitalization and conservation of Northwest Community Park as an ecosystem. Particularly interested in its reemergence as a stopping point on the migration route of the monarch butterflies, the team designed a series of larger-than-life butterfly sculptures. Each beautiful butterfly sculpture calls to mind this migration, encapsulating the energy and vibrance of nature. Placed along two trails each butterfly appears to have just landed, inviting viewers to interact with the work while exploring the park. The sculptures hold a total of approximately 6500 embedded crystal prisms which are activated by sunlight throughout the day, casting colorful patterns of refracted light
