Art List

The big thing this weekend is the final show at CADD Art Lab. And/Or and now this. We're so screwed!


CADD Art Lab
Artists’ Talk Thursday, Sept. 3, 7 pm

Sorry to be a little uncreative today, but here's a little copy 'n' paste: "The Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas present LAUNCH with an opening reception and third-anniversary celebration at the CADD Art Lab on Thursday, July 16, 5-8 pm. This exhibition showcases art by current and recently graduated studio art graduate students from Master of Fine Arts programs located in the Dallas, Fort Worth, and Denton area.

Richland College Brazos Gallery
Opens Thursday, Sept. 3, noon - 1 pm
Through October 9. (972) 238-6339
featuring work by David Connolly, Paul Greco, and Harmony Padgett

DUDE: I just realized after writing all the below that this opening happened today at noon. Agh. Anyway...

I really wish I could see more of Harmony Padgett's stuff. She seems to have no web presence at all, but the thumbnails you can see on a few of the gallery sites (#1, #2, #3) look pretty interesting. Check out David Connolly's stuff linked above (also, the featured image, titled Pattern #3).


Magical Means: Drawings by Anna Zemánková
Southern Methodist University Pollock Gallery
Opens Friday, Sept. 4, 5-7 pm

Lazy, lazy: "Using an idiosyncratic and highly individualized lyrical language of biomorphic abstraction, self-taught Czech artist Anna Zemánková (1908–1986) made drawings of striking originality and beauty. Zemánková, a Prague housewife who suffered from chronic depression, began making her richly abstracted unfolding floral-like compositions in 1960, at the age of fifty-two. She often executed her drawings while in a trancelike state, and her works appear to undergo anorganic transformation on the paper, resulting in graceful, fantastic flower/star/leaf shapes."


Brian Fridge, Amy Revier, Edward Setina, Matthew Lopas, and Paul Slocum
McKinney Avenue Contemporary
Opens Saturday, Sept. 5, 5:30-7:30 pm
