ARTICLE: Joan Winter in LUXE magazine

September 8, 2017 - Tate Gunnerson

Hiking through a dense bamboo forest isn't easy, a fact that Dallas artist Joan Winter quickly realized while winding through the towering green shoots on Awaji Island. The experience was one adventure on a recent six-week trip to Japan she took for both artistic inspiration and a weeklong woodblock-printing class in Kyoto...

ARTICLE: Arts + Culture Magazine - 'Dallas Gallerists Shape the Design District'

September 1, 2017 - Nancy Zastudil

The art scene in Dallas has long been influenced by avant-garde women: From the The Betty McLean Gallery, which opened in 1951 as one of the first modern art galleries in Texas, to Valley House Gallery, founded by Peggy and Donald Vogel, to the visionaries of today who show no signs of slowing down...

REVIEW: Michael Young in ModernDallas.net

August 18, 2017 - Todd Camplin

Something as simple as a line can create a range of emotional suggestions. Next, to the point, the line is the simplest expression in making visual art. Essential and at the core of nearly every work of art throughout the ages. The line helps direct our eyes through an art piece, whether implied or actual. Thick marks can give a feeling of boldness, while a thin wavy line can draw out from the viewer a feeling of nervousness and being unsure. The power of this art element can feel spiritual as well and structurally material....

INTERVIEW: Dornith Doherty in Patron Magazine

August 17, 2017 - Steve Carter

Acclaimed North Texas artist Dornith Doherty has been photographing seed banks around the world since 2008, and the capstone exhibition, Dornith Doherty: Archiving Eden, has just opened at the Amon Carter. The show is a spellbindingly beautiful collection of 15 large-scale images, both of the seed banks themselves and digital collages from x-ray images Doherty took in the labs. Patron spoke with Doherty at the Museum the day before the August 12 opening.

PATRON: Your “Archiving Eden” project has consumed you for nearly 10 years—does the origin of this exploration date back to when you learned of the Svalbard Global Seed Vault in Norway, the so-called “doomsday vault”?.....

INTERVIEW: Dornith Doherty at KERA Art & Seek

August 11, 2017 - Anne Bothwell

Photographer Dornith Doherty spent nine years documenting remote seed vaults around the world — and the seeds inside them. She even got inside the so-called doomsday vault, in Norway, near the North Pole, designed to help preserve samples of botanical life in case of worldwide catastrophe.

Her large, ghostly images capture life inside seeds as small as a grain of sand.  You can see them in her new book, “Archiving Eden,” and in the show by the same name at Amon Carter Museum of American Art.

For our weekly State of the Arts, I spoke Doherty about how she makes her ethereal work. Here are some excerpts from our conversation...

BOOK REVIEW - Dornith Doherty: Archiving Eden in Photo Eye Blog

July 17, 2017 - Laura M. André

In 2015, Syrian researchers made the first ever withdrawal from the Svalbard Global Seed Vaultto recover wheat, barley, and grass samples that had been lost when the Aleppo-based seed bank was destroyed in that country's civil war. That is exactly why the Svalbard "Doomsday Vault" exists. To date there are over 1,700 repositories like the one formerly based in Aleppo (which has since moved to Beirut), designed to function as natural safe deposit boxes for food crops and plant diversity in case of natural or man-made disasters....
