50 Years of Art & Love: The Peggy Nichols Collection (Nov.)

TVAA Downtown Gallery ~ Art Exhibition

Invitation for 50 Years of Art & Love -
The Peggy Nichols Collection
October 26 – November 16, 2017

About the Show:
For over 50 years, Peggy Nichols collected art to adorn the walls of her Dallas home. For her, it was never just about filling a void on a wall; it was about filling her heart with love and mind with joy. Art was a way to lift her spirits and cope with the realities of life after a hard day of work. Art was her escape. It was an emotional investment. A way to get lost in the imagination and worlds of so many artists that she adopted as her extended family. Her collection, which is comprised of mostly contemporary artists and photographers, unveils incredible moments in history and the risks artists take pursuing their craft. Works from these national and internationally acclaimed artists can be found in museums and galleries around the world. At 76, Peggy Nichols wants to share her collection with others in hopes that they too may see the love and joy that has filled her heart and mind for so many years. All work in this exhibition will be available for purchase.

Curator: Leon Robertson is a self-taught artist that works with primarily pen and ink illustration. He has explored mixed media by using found objects to create a series titled, The Junkyard Birds. Because so much of his art is inspired by the use of language, stories often unfold with his art. It is the reason why he prefers to work in an open-series format. He has exhibited his work in local shows and galleries. Several of the characters from his ARF & Soul Dog series were published in the book, 1000 Dog Portraits: From the People Who Love Them. Leon’s passion for art, design and all things creative, continues to grow in the nearly two decades of working in the fashion and home luxury retail markets.

Reception: November 4th, 2PM – 4PM

Black & Light (June)

June 1 – 30, 2017

Reception, Sunday June 4, 2:00 – 4:00 pm

Black & Light celebrates the beauty of darkness, light, and the contrasts they create. These universal opposites reveal each other’s beauty, such as the silhouettes and dramatic lighting in a photograph, the abstractions and illusions of light in a painted work, and even literal light manipulation in a three dimensional work. Artists are invited to submit work in any medium to explore and reveal the beauty of black, light, shadow, and luminosity through personal interpretation. The use of black in artwork is highly encouraged, though not required. The uses of LEDs and other physical sources of light in a piece are also welcome. All media welcome.

Please submit up to three entries (jpgs at 72 dpi and no longer than 1800 pixels on longest side) to Curator Kathleen Ramirez by MAY 21st @ thegemlord@yahoo.com Phone: 210-792-9870 Email: thegemlord@yahoo.com

2017 Abstracted Redacted (MAY)

May 1 – 31, 2017
Reception Sunday, May 7, 2-4 pm

The website for the TATE informs us that abstract ” means to separate or withdraw something from something else. Abstract art is art which is not representational, it could be based on a subject or may have no source at all in the external world.”
When sensitive information is removed or obscured from a document before it is published, it is said to have been redacted. In writing, this is a form of editing.
In this exhibit, we hope to show your abstract work with some redaction. You are the creator and must decide how that occurs. Will you use text which you conceal? Will you have an area in your piece that has had some content removed? Will a sculpture obviously show us a missing part? Perhaps the way you portray this idea will be more subjective. Perhaps it will be very literal. Subtle or not, you decide! All media welcome.

2017 Earth Day Exhibition (APRIL)

April 3 – 28, 2017
Reception Sunday, April 22, 2-4 pm

Twenty million Americans took to the streets on April 22, 1970 to protest the deterioration of their environment due to the ravages of the industrial revolution.  By the end of that year, the first Earth Day had led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. By 1990, Earth Day was a global event, mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries. Today, in spite of climate change deniers and well-funded lobbyists, Earth Day has become the largest secular observance in the world, celebrated by more than a billion people every year, and a day of action that changes human behavior and provokes policy changes.

The TVAA Gallery once again celebrates Earth Day this April with an exhibit of art inspired by our concern for environmental issues. All media welcome.
