Art List


Cora Cohen (see also wikipedia), Gabriel Dawe, Kyle Kondas, Chris Kysor, Peter Ligon, Jennie Ottinger, Lorraine Tady, and Johnny Robertson
Visual Arts Building at the University of Texas at Dallas
800 W. Campbell, Richardson, TX 75080
September 25 : 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Curated by John Pomara. Seems that Cora Cohen is probably the highlight here. Johnny Robertson wins this year's award for most annoying web portfolio gallery ever, but his paintings are pretty. But my favorite here is easily Jennie Ottinger (so amazing: this, this, and this, plus the featured image above). Here is an interview with Ms. Ottinger. And there's much more good stuff here.


Mid-century Ideology & Imagery meets Modern Chaos
Jonathon Kimbrell and Kat Gardner
Cameron Gallery
1414 Dragon Street, Dallas, TX 75207
September 26 : 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Oh, Kat Gardner. So hard to make a decision about that. Almost as titillating (artistically, of course) as my favorite North Texas artist Haylee Ryan Yale. A quick look at Jonathan Kimbrell's site makes you realize he's the "mid-century ideology & imagery", which I guess leaves Kat Gardner with "modern chaos".

Nineteenth Anniversary
Kittrell/Riffkind Art Glass Studio
5100 Belt Line Road, #820, Dallas, TX 75254
September 26 : 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Some of this glass looks really amazing, like this (Mark Abildgaard) and this (Anna Booth) and this (Steve & Claudia Beckwith) and this (Steven Anderson). They've got an all day event going on Saturday at their Addison location (Southeast corner of Belt Line and the Tollway).
