Art List

I've been enjoying the new free 10" from And/Or Gallery's Paul Slocum's Tree Wave. You too can have the free recording -- get you it here. The image at the right is by Dallas artist John Alexander Taylor, entitled Wheat House (6'x4', vinyl on etched plexiglass). More details about his opening this weekend are below.


Say Anything
Ruben Nieto
Gabriel Dawe
T.J. Griffin
Jill Hoes
[among up to a 15-person-group of "emerging young artists"]
Visual Art Building at University of Texas at Dallas
800 West Campbell Road, Richardson, Tx 70080
August 28 : 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

"The work ranges from hybrid forms of painting to digital video, installation art to new forms of graphic design. The varied use of materials and the range of visual diversity is highly reflective of today’s young emerging artists."

Fuck I hate "young emerging artists". (It just sounds so groaty.) But if you're looking for "sweet young artists", I can definitely hook you up.


Still Lifes and Tables
Mary Vernon
Valley House Gallery and Sculpture Garden
6616 Spring Valley Road, Dallas, Tx 75254
August 28 : 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

This one is amazing: Hedgehog (by Mary Vernon).



2009 Arts Faire
Lakewood Summer Arts Faire
2443 Abrams Road, Dallas, Tx 75214
August 29 : 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM (cost $2.00)

Can't tell if this is pretty much the same thing as the Cottonwood Arts Festival, but hipper?


TVAA Citation 2009
Art Centre of Plano
1039 East 15th Street, Plano, Tx 75074
August 29 : 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

No artists listed. Lucky me!


The Whole Show
Kettle Art
2714 Elm Street, Dallas, Tx 75226
August 29 : 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

No artists listed. Lucky me! Evidently this is going to be a silent auction "featuring a whole lotta Artists you should know and Love". Kettle Art is a quality organization down in the middle of it.


John Alexander Taylor
Haylee Ryan Yale
Mokah Gallery
2803 Taylor Sreet, Dallas, Tx 75226
August 29 : 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM

There is something definitely titillating about Haylee Ryan Yale's web site. Maybe it's that when combined with her name, the front page looks more or less like a porn profile. But from looking at her portfolio, she can definitely draw. She just needs to escape the shadow of recent art school graduation. This exhibition features Ms. Yale's paintings along with installation material by John Alexander Taylor. There is some really cool stuff here. His "work deals with high-contrast images of the industrial world made into black vinyl. His work is a journal of images that he has collected off the highways of North Texas". He seems to be a (n unknown?) local master of printmaking.
