Fresh Tracks

 

March 22 - April 28, 2013
Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery
Art History Building, Haggerty Art Village

 

 

Organized by Kim Cadmus Owens and Michael Francis, fresh tracks is an exhibition that developed out of a conversation between artists regarding abstract painting. The artists in the exhibition engage directly with the substance of painting. They are aware of its history and discourse and forge their own territory within its long trajectory. In their work they unleash the power of seemingly formal investigations of color, line, shape, and space to pose perceptual and conceptual questions. These abstract dialogs allow the viewer to trace familiar materials through new thought processes and lay fresh tracks, encouraging an audience now educated in the "art of the abstract" to discern its contemporary implications.

Exhibiting artists include David Aylsworth, Trey Egan, Vincent Falsetta, Nathan Green, Raychael Stine, Marcelyn McNeil, Michelle Mackey, Brian Ryden, and Eli Walker.

John Adelman

 

Exhibition Dates: February 28 - March 19, 2010
Upper Gallery, Painting/Printmaking Building
Haggerty Art Village

The University of Dallas Upper Gallery is pleased to present Barometer, an exhibition featuring works by John Adelman.

The drawings of John Adelman are a result of a unique method using rules of an equation set by the artist. His methods complexity is masked by the overall ethereal appearance of the work. Upon closer examination, one may discover layers of miniscule lines made by handwritten dictionary definitions and traced objects. In addition, Adelman's new work exploring negative space through shaped paper and broadened use of color will be exhibited.

Adelman received a B.F.A. in Drawing, Painting, and Printmaking from The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio in 1992. He received a M.F.A. in Drawing and Painting from the University of North Texas in Denton in 2006. Currently, John Adelman resides in Houston, Texas and is represented by Holly Johnson Gallery in Dallas, Texas and Access Art in Bexley, Ohio.

 

Landscape Affected

 

Exhibition Dates: April 3 - May 3, 2009
Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery
Art History Building, Haggerty Art Village

 

 

The University of Dallas Haggerty Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition Landscape Affected curated by Kim Cadmus Owens. In this exhibit artists paint landscape as subject or point of departure. The works in the show range from observed places, simulated environments, to complete fabrications of place. All the artists deal differently with space and illusion but the content of each is informed by some form of a lens through which the artist looks. This lens may literally take on the form of a camera, the minds eye, or may involve a technology or technique which makes evident a form of mediation. No matter the method, the imagery and sense of space is undoubtedly affected by the way each artist embodies the transformation through painting. Artists included in this exhibit are Scott Anderson, David Linneweh, Christopher Schade, Jackie Tileston, Tommy Fitzpatrick, William Betts, Russ Havard, Daniel Blagg, Seth Adelsberger and Michael Francis.
