Join our friends at JM Gallery Tomorrow for an artist talk with Kyle Hobratschk

This Wednesday, December 9 at 6:30 p.m., JM Gallery, located right here in One Arts Plaza, will be hosting an artist talk with Kyle Hobratschk, a young artist who hails from Saudi Arabia but earned his BFA from SMU in 2011. The exhibition he shares with fellow artist, Shelly Scott, called Dimensions has already received accolades from PaperCity Magazine editor, Patricia Mora  

Kyle will be discussing his unique creative process which begins with the construction of small, imaginary architectural models inspired by his affinity for historical monuments, roof tops, silos and even headstones. Next, each structure is rendered using aquatint, a print process that produces deep, velvety tones and shadows. Each model is represented in several different pieces using a variety of angles and perspectives. When Kyle is not working at his studio in Bishop Arts, he is often in Corsicana where he offers students 6-week fellowship opportunities where they can reside and hone their craft at his newly renovated 100West Corsicana studio.

You don’t want to miss Kyle’s unique series! Join us tomorrow evening for a glass of wine, an intimate gathering with the artist and to learn more about his fascinating process. And remember, all pieces on display at JM Gallery are available for purchase. This is the perfect time to give a gorgeous piece to the art aficionados in your life, or treat yourself and your home to a beautiful oil painting or etching just in time for the holidays.

JM Gallery's current and phenomenal installation

JM Gallery was abuzz on the evening of November 7, as art collectors and enthusiasts filtered in and out of the gallery for a chance to meet artists Kyle Hobratschk and Shelley Scott. The opening reception was met with much enthusiasm, and art aficionados were intrigued by the pieces enjoyed mingling with the artists and learning about their processes and inspiration.

Viewers were especially interested in Shelley’s sculptures of household tools such as clamps, glue, and abstract shapes. Her work, almost primitive, provides unexpected perspectives towards the preconceived notions of dimension.

Similarly, Kyle’s pieces were praised for their representation of structural spaces. His artistic process is particularly interesting.  After building small architectural structures, he renders them using a traditional printing process producing prints and painting of deep, velvety shadows and abstract shapes.

If you missed a chance to attend the artist reception, Kyle Hobratschk and Shelley Scott’s exhibition will be on display at JM Gallery now through December 19. The gallery is open Tuesday through Thursday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.

YOU'RE INVITED: Join JM for an artist reception

What are your Saturday plans? Join us at JM Gallery for a very special artist reception for Kyle Hobratschk and Shelley Scott. The show, which will be on display from November 7 0 December 19, features pieces that challenge the viewers’ perceptions of space. Kyle’s prints and oil paintings reflect architectural design with their references to warehouses, cornerstones, barns and ancient temples. Though these images are not actual buildings, they exude visually powerful structures.

Sculpture Shelley Scott’s pieces integrate our perception of two and three-dimensional space. Two-dimensional images seem to be solid structures, while three-dimensional objects appear to be flat drawings. The contrast in her pieces is truly captivating and intriguing.

Don’t miss out on a chance to be the first to see Kyle and Shelley’s work! Join us for snacks and beverages as well as good conversation. You’ll be able to meet and greet the artists and gain insight into their creative processes. The reception will take place at JM Gallery, located at One Arts Plaza, on Saturday from 5 – 8 P.M.

An evening with The Mountaintop and Jorge's Tex Mex

Has your curious nature ever led you to question the thoughts and emotions of Dr. Luther King Jr. the night of his brutal assignation? Dallas Theater Center’s The Mountaintop tells the story of this civil rights leader’s last hours on earth. The thought provoking Broadway hit and 2010 winner of Britain’s Olivier Award for Best New Play portrays Dr. King in a very raw manner; without the mythology associated with his modern memory. The setting takes place in Memphis’ Lorraine motel, and audience members will experience an intimate production, sitting just a few feet from the talent on stage.

The Mountaintop provides insight and context into the times of one of America’s most infamous assignations. It has been described as “…unexpected, provocative, and, at times, dangerous…” (Nancy Churnin The Dallas Morning News). Purchase your tickets (available now through Nov. 15) to experience a remarkable performance starring Hassan El-Amin as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 

Swing by Jorge’s Tex Mex café and make a night of it with tasty hand-crafted margaritas and sizzling fajitas. Skip the Uber! Jorge’s is located right here in One Arts Plaza and offers a variety of house specials, classic Tex-Mex faves and an assortment of tacos and cocktails. You can view their tasty menu here.

Aurora at One Arts Plaza and JM Gallery was a HUGE success!

AURORA-Powered by Reliant drew record-breaking crowds to One Arts Plaza and JM Gallery. The plaza hosted a phenomenal light installation as part of the Dallas AURORA lights festival co-founded in 2013 by local artists Shane Pennington and Joshua King. An estimated 50 thousand people strolled through the Dallas Arts District, awestruck by the expansive light, sound, performance and new media event that stretched across the 68-acre district from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. October 16, 2015.

Istanbul artist, Memo Akten’s installation known as Simple Harmonic Motion was housed in One Arts Plaza, garnering the attention of passersby and guests dining on the patios of Tei An, Jorge’s Tex Mex Café, and Proof + Pantry. The vivid light beams perfectly outlining the perimeter of the plaza’s fountains, shot straight up into the sky overlapping each other as they met in the moonlight. The dramatic music, a collection of simple, multilayered rhythms accompanied the neon blue lights. Viewers were encouraged to play with the lights, waving their hands and arms to create movement in the installation and disrupt the stiff pattern of the lasers.

One Arts Plaza hosted a “Be Social” contest for viewers inspired by the brilliant installation with four gift cards up for grabs, one to each One Arts Plaza restaurant. The four winners were chosen for their photos of Simple Harmonic Motion uploaded to their Instagram, Twitter and Facebook accounts using the hashtags #OneArtsMemo and #ArtAtOneArts and tagging @OneArtsPlaza.

Just a few feet away, JM Gallery hosted an award reception for its current juried exhibition, “Illumination,” which features 36 pieces crafted by members of the Texas Sculpture Association. A panel of three expert judges including Jed Morse (Chief Curator of Nasher Sculpture Center), Gail Sachson (Art & Seek and Ask Me About Art) and Mark LaRoe (prolific collector and Managing Director at Deutsche Bank) each selected 12 works submitted by dozens of artists, making the exhibition an eclectic collection ranging from contemporary abstract designs to antique masterpieces engineered from repurposed materials.

The reception drew dozens of art aficionados wanting to meet the artists behind the sculptures on display at JM Gallery. Gallery director Chris Heinlen announced the winning pieces unanimously chosen by the jurors with Octopus Hand by Robertus Van der Wage taking Honorable Mention, Agreements by Rebecca Boatman receiving Runner Up, and Jim Bowman’s Eschatology of Radiology welcoming Best in Show.

JM Gallery Owner Michael Heinlen congratulated all the winners, and with Red Zingari in hand, the artists continued to mingle with guests and friends, explaining the inspiration and vision behind each piece. By the end of the evening, three works had been sold, and a few conversations leading to solo exhibitions were all abuzz.

“Illumination” will be on display now through October 31. All works are available for purchase and can be viewed five days a week. The gallery is open Tuesday through Thursday and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.

WE ARE ALL HOMELESS Artist Reception was a HUGE success

On Tuesday evening, One Arts Plaza hosted an artist reception for Willie Baronet, the visionary behind the WE ARE ALL HOMELESS project. His project, on display in the One Arts Plaza lobby, consists of hundreds of homeless signs, which he has bought and collected while traveling across the United States. Its purpose is to challenge beliefs on what it means to be homeless. Is home a physical place of comfort and safety? Or is it a place of emotional security and identity?

The reception was met with positive response. Viewers enjoyed bites from One Arts Plaza’s restaurant Proof + Pantry and champagne from Contadi Castaldi Franciacorta Brut NV. In addition to hearing from Baronet, Teresa Hiser and Dr. David Woody with The Bridge and Sherri Ansley with the Housing Crisis Center shared information about their organizations and the work they do with the homeless community.  Guests also left messages on the interactive display describing what home means to them.

If you missed out on the reception, stop by the One Arts Plaza to see Baronet’s WE ARE ALL HOMELESS installation now on display until October 4, 2015. You can also join us on next Wednesday, September 23 from 6pm – 8pm for a special Artist Talk.  

Viewers observe the installation while enjoying snacks provided by Proof + Pantry.

Artist Willie Baronet discusses his work process.
