Art List


Waxy 100
The Encaustic Center
580 West Arapaho, Suite 271, Richardson, TX 75080
August 14 : 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

I'm actually going to go to this because A) it's literally in "The Richardson Heights" and B) encaustic has really grown on me over the last year. It's a really old art form dating back several thousand years, some pieces of which still exist. Jasper Johns used it for his Flag paintings. Evidently, "the event will include a demonstration by Bonny [Leibowitz] on Painterly Techniques and Deanna [Wood] on Painting and Collage." Featured image in encaustic by Deanna Wood.

5 x 7 On The Road
Dunn and Brown Contemporary Gallery
5020 Tracy Street, Dallas, TX 75206
August 14 : 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

5 x 7 is a fundraising road show from Austin's Arthouse. They're peddling 5" x 7" boards with original art on them for $100 each. The coolest part, though, is that "All pieces are displayed anonymously – only when you purchase a work of art will you discover who created it."

Gail Delger
Carrie Kersey
Jean McComas
Natalie Prikhodko
Visual Arts Coalition of Dallas
2902 Maple Avenue, Dallas, TX 75201
August 14 : 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Borderline vanity gallery. Well, after reading the definition again, I guess it's really an "artist-run initiative".


Home Grown Emerging Young Artists
Melissa Archer, Thomas Colley, Maria Cortes, Alex Hamrick, Rudy Jacoby, Huy Nguyen, Zeke Raney and Olivia Rodriguez
Upper Room Gallery of Unity Church of Christianity
3425 Greenville Avenue, Dallas, TX 75206
August 15 : 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Young enough that none of them seem to have any web presence whatsoever, except Alex Hamrick, whom you've seen here before.

A Memorial Celebration for the life of Andrew F. Sie
Stan's Eye
Light & Sie
129 Leslie Street, Dallas, TX 75207
August 15 : 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Evidently Andrew Sie died at the beginning on July due to "long-term" illness. The first half is the memorial, then the second half is going to be a selection of works from Stanley Light's personal collection.

Gary Perrone Gallery
5840 Alpha Road, #B, Dallas, TX 75240
August 15 : 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
