New Works exhibition series introduces fresh contemporary art by innovative artists. Eric Zimmerman’s painstakingly rendered small and large-scale graphite drawings, functional sculptures, and archival sound works consider the history of American exploration and industry, progress and failures.

Imagine a place where artists Terry Allen, Michael Ray Charles, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Melissa Miller, James Surls, and Julie Speed, among others, collaborated with master printmakers to stretch the limits of their practice and the media. That place has thrived for twenty years in the form of Austin-based Flatbed Press, an active laboratory for innovative printmaking.

This exhibition focuses on how Flatbed Press has worked together with an array of nationally and internationally renowned artist to combine new technologies with traditional equipment and processes to yield this surprising diversity of prints. Alongside the prints, Collection Selections presents paintings, drawings, and sculptures by featured Flatbed printmakers.

Friday, December 3 | 6-9PM

Come together with friends to see the exhibition. Enjoy complimentary light bites, cocktails, and live music.

New @ Champion Contemporary

Dan Rushton "Planted"

Project Room: Chris Sauter "Exploding Silos"

Opening: Thursday Dec 2, 7-10 PM
Exhibition: Dec 2 - Jan 15, 2011

Presenting new and never seen before works at Champion, Dan Rushton’s paintings are visceral compositions in vibrant hues that contemplate otherworldly meditations on life.

Rushton employs an exacting collage technique in his works that involves the layering of multiple swathes of painted paper to create both seductive and jarring imagery. The graduation of materials builds a deep textural effect and coupled with his brushwork imbues the lustre-like sheen of ceramics. Furthermore, Rushton’s vivid palette and gradation forms a rhythmic dance of majestic robust blooms in moody contortions.

Incorporating classical allegorical references with traces of Greco-Roman aesthetic and past decorative genres, Rushton paints a world that has been reduced to figure, vessel and landscape. The figure only seen from the waist down is a stand in for all ego driven creatures, the vessel, a go between, between the figure and the landscape, and the landscape with foliage representing the world outside of ourselves. Each painting offers some aspect of the relationships between these subjects.

Last chance @ Lora Reynolds Gallery

October 21 – November 27, 2010

Opening Reception: October 21, 2010, 6-8 pm

Lora Reynolds Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of sculptures and works on paper by New York based artist, Tony Feher in our Project Room from October 21st to November 27, 2010.

Collecting and cultivating the beauty in everyday objects, Tony Feher infuses cast-off detritus with playful light and whimsy. His sculptures are comprised of carefully chosen plastic bottles, marbles, netting, boxes and other similar urban artifacts. They become animated with Feher's clever use of color, repetition and various juxtapositions often in response to a specific architectural space.

Feher will display a dynamic grouping of works including ‘Singer of Many,' 31 glass bottles with screw caps, water, and food coloring aligned on a painted wooden shelf, which collectively addresses traditional elements such as line, shape, volume and color in a contemporary and whimsical way. ‘Pink Hole,' an unfolded, glitter encrusted reincarnation of a three-dimensional French fry box, reinforces Feher's distinct ability to pull to the forefront the beauty and potential of the commonplace.

Tony Feher was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and received his BA from the University of Texas, Austin. He currently lives and works in New York and has exhibited in numerous institutions including the UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, The Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, the Serpentine Gallery, London, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago among others. In addition, Arthouse at the Jones Center has commissioned a new work including a constellation of hundreds of water bottles suspended from their second floor gallery ceiling in honor of the grand reopening taking place October 21-24. The public is invited to a reception on Thursday, October 21st from 6-8 pm. The artist will be in attendance.
