Dallas Design District Gallery, Laura Rathe Fine Art, announces a solo exhibition I AM THE SUN, featuring new works by renowned artist, Meredith Pardue. The opening days will take place on Friday, May 14th and Saturday, May 15th. The artist will be in attendance on Saturday, May 15th from 1-4pm. Appointments are recommended.
Meredith Pardue’s solo exhibition I AM THE SUN, is rooted in humankind’s relationship with the sun, and the inherent mystery and rituals this rapport has inspired throughout human history. Pardue’s palette ranges from explosive saturation to moody and dark monochromes. The mark making of this body of work spans from brushwork reminiscent of mid-century abstract expressionists to raw, primitive strokes. The exhibition also includes compositions with pod like forms that seem to undulate around, within, and beyond the parameters of the canvas in what has become Pardue’s signature aesthetic over the last decade.

Waggoner’s impressive installations are intricately mapped to suit their surroundings and are inspired by forms found in nature and abstract visions of landscapes. She incorporates various materials in her work, including precious metals, such as 22k Gold, palladium, and bronze, which add depth and illuminate each individual vessel. Waggoner harmonizes organic forms and geometric patterns to create compelling compositions that distinctly transform any space. Continue reading →

Just before Christmas there was a massive warehouse fire behind the Cohn Drennan Contemporary gallery. The Dallas Fire Department was not able to gain access to the fire because DART rail runs behind the warehouse. In order to begin suppression of the fire, the DFD ran a fire hose through the building, up the stairs and down the hall above the gallery in order to break out a window in the back of the building and get as much water on the fire as possible.

The Cohn Drennan Contemporary’s owner Cathy Drennan and Mary Tomás owner of the Mary Tomás Gallery have collaborated together to create a show which features each owners works as painters.
