This week art takes center stage in Lower Oak Lawn as two exciting exhibits make their Design District debuts. From mixed media to multi-media, you’re sure to enjoy the colorful creativity presented in these two shows.
Jerrold Burchman at Gremillion & Co. Fine Art
Thursday, March 27, 5:00-7:00 p.m.
California-based artist Jerrold Burchman debuts “Recent Paintings and Collage,” a new exhibition at Gremillion & Co. Fine Art. A reflection of his intuitive response to the natural world, his new works strike a balance of determined structural organization and free improvisation of form and color.
The artist, whose works have been described as lyrical and poetic, continues his ongoing interest in color nuance, paint manipulation, linear gesture, and experimental process.
“For the past several years I have been working on a series of paintings and mixed media collages that respond to the variety and complexity of nature: intricate surface patterns, erosion, random stains, etc. These paintings are symbolic rather than literal. The collages are intimate in scale, creating a dialogue between found materials and a combination of paint processes. I attempt to create images that are both mysterious and timeless.”
Jerrold Burchman’s exhibit will be on display through April 26, 2012
An Industrial American Dirge at LuminArte
Saturday, March 24, 7:00 p.m.
This Saturday, LuminArte Gallery opens “An Industrial American Dirge,” a multi-media installation originated by Kenneth John Verdugo that incorporates found objects, instruments and digital video. Conceived as an aesthetic visual response to Jeffrey Gascon Bello’s compositions, select elements filling the room will serve as percussion walls, providing an opportunity for the duo to “play the room”. The entire Trinity Gallery within LuminArte will be devoted to this exciting an intriguing multi-media installation.
Original works of art consistent with the theme will also be featured in in LuminArte’s Levee and River Edge galleries. Featured artists include Phil Stein of Bethlehem, PA, Shelly Shanks and Sergio Santos of Houston and Jamie Labar and Jim Lively of Dallas.
