Saturday, September 19, JM Gallery hosted an artist reception celebrating works by members of the Texas Sculpture Association (TSA). The pieces included in “Illumination: a juried exhibition,” were hand-selected by a panel of three distinguished judges – Mark LaRoe, Jed Morse and Gail Sachson. The exhibition will be on display now through October 31, with a special award ceremony to be held at JM Gallery, October 16 in conjunction with AURORA.
Saturday evening, aficionados had the opportunity to meet the artists, learn about their work and interact with the pieces. Featured artists include Rebecca Boatman, Jim Bowman, Karmien Bowman, Jim Brightwell, Reba Browning and Glen Spelis, Michelle Crider, Jerry Dodd, Antoaneta Hillman, Rebecca Low, Jim Mace, Roberta Masciarelli, Jill Nonnemacher, Nan Phillips, Stephen Potter, Carlyn Ray, Marco Rubino, Breanne Schwarz, Cathy Shepherd, Scott Shubin, Shelley Smith, Robertus Van der Wege, Sam Watson, and Carole Wolanow.
Since 1983, the TSA has been offering programs and events aimed at educating sculptors and their collectors and promoting the role of sculpture in shaping the spirit and character of our urban environment. Its members have helped inspire an excitement for the arts in North Texas and they have shown at numerous local and national venues.
JM Gallery is pleased to collaborate with the TSA in advancing its goals through the presentation of this exciting exhibition of their works.
