This Thursday, October 16, 2014 Kettle Art proudly presents extremes in photography with two openings in one night!

Justin Terveen will unveil ‘New Works’ in Gallery A, featuring recent ‘Dallas Heavy’ photographs and more.

Justin Terveen : New Works

Few artists have captured the beauty of a cityscape, or the hearts of adoring fans, quite like photographer Justin Terveen has done in Dallas.

Terveen’s breathtaking images of the skyline are found within countless blogs and publications across the internet, and in numerous private and corporate collections. When USA Today’s readers voted Dallas as Readers’ Choice for 2014 Best International Skyline, it was due in large part to Terveen’s iconic images.

Richard Andrew Sharum‘s ‘In the Heart’ featuring street photography from around the world, opens in Gallery B.

Richard Sharum

Richard Andrew Sharum debuts his compelling series documenting the often obscure landscape of urban spaces around the world and the inhabitants of these areas. Sharum’s images depict the contrast between flesh and architecture, the fragility of life juxtaposed with formidable concrete structures, and the light that both illuminates and deepens the shadows between them.

In recognition of Sharum’s work on the series abroad, he was selected among international applicants for the Magnum Photos (Paris) Masterclass with Jonas Bendiksen during HOST at FOTOGRAFIA EUROPEA 2014 in Reggio Emilia, Italy, and for the Magnum Photos (New York) Masterclass with Moises Saman and Abbas in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Both resulted in public exhibitions of his work in each respective city.

In Summer of 2014, Sharum launched “Observe Dallas”, a public installation project aimed at encouraging observers of anonymously placed photographs within the Downtown area to interact with their surroundings in unique ways.

Departing The Kingdom Of Sensibility

 

Kettle Art proudly presents “Departing the Kingdom of Sensibility” featuring works by sculptor Darlene Schaper, photographer Zoie Vandal, and painter Jodi VonRotten.

On view in this exhibit, three disparate mediums converge in an eclectic exploration of surrealism and the female artistic perspective.

Darlene Schaper is a Native Oregonian living in Dallas, Texas and a graduate of the Pacific NW College of Art. The artist’s work combines decorative elements and embellishes objects into 3-D sculptural worlds of wonder. Using vintage fur, lace, discarded toys, and much more, she reinvents obscure antiques and oddities into precious animals, sculptures, shrines and reliquaries. http://darleneschaper.wix.com/pet-art

Zoie Vandal is a multifaceted artist whose work encompasses a range of genres, including photography, music, dance, modeling, production, SFX, and set work. The artist’s stylized photographic images have recently been featured in Vogue and Dark Beauty magazines. http://www.ashotnthedark.com/

Jodi VonRotten is a visual artist and university professor concerned with the exploration of identity and the individual through the examination of boundaries and relationships, materials and process, and anatomy vs. the figure. The artist brings to life narrations that create a bridge between reality and the unseen reality. http://www.liesandprophecies.com/

Holiday Presence IX Postponed

 

Due to the icy, slick conditions created around Dallas/Fort Worth late last week, Kettle Art Gallery felt it necessary to postpone the official opening of Holiday Presence IX.

The staff felt that it was better for everyone to arrive safely to celebrate the holiday, than risk the potential of accident & injury trying to make it out for the show.

The wait will be worth it as your favorite local artists will be on hand Thursday night to welcome one-and-all & officially kick-off Holiday Presence IX. So, join us Thursday night for what promises to be a jolly fun time for all!

Till then, stay safe and warm!
