The TVAA Downtown Gallery will exhibiting works by all artists who joined TVAA during 2015 – 2017.

About the Curator:
Leon Robertson is a self-taught artist that works with primarily pen and ink illustration. He has explored mixed media 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. His work has been exhibited 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 was demonstrated in nearly two decades of working in the fashion and home luxury retail markets.

This is why we get up every morning!
Dallas Thursday Artists

Show dates February 3-28
Reception Saturday, February 3 between 1 pm to 2 pm

The Dallas Thursday Artists, is a group of artists united by their love of art! We come from diverse backgrounds including a Chemical Engineer, teacher, illustrator, Librarian, even a Canadian. We use different media to create our art such as pottery, watercolor, oil, acrylic, pen and ink and mixed media. We meet weekly to make art, talk about art, critique art and discuss different techniques and media. Our studio is the whole of the DFW area. We paint outside locations like The Arboretum, Klyde Warren Park and Sundance Square (when the weather is good). And when it’s too hot or too cold our studio moves inside to places like the Amon Carter Museum, DMA, antique shops, The Galleria or North Park Mall. We learn from each other and have grown as artists, we get up every morning to make art!
