PRESS RELEASE: Margo Sawyer: Reflect

November 18, 2017 - Holly Johnson Gallery

Holly Johnson Gallery in Dallas is pleased to announce the opening of Reflect, by Austin-based sculptor Margo Sawyer. A reception for the artist will be held Saturday, November 18, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. The exhibition continues through February 3, 2018.

Throughout her career, Margo Sawyer has created installations which translate sacred spaces into a contemporary vocabulary. The central actor of Sawyer’s art is color.  Reflect 2017, is a large-scale floor installation that converses with the architecture in an ever-changing way, with the play of light and reflection moving throughout the space and uniting an array of complex and unexpected unions of color. Reflect, holds fragments of a career long fascination with glass, its optical color play, how transparency, reflectivity, luminosity, physicality, materiality, perceptual, material and shape affect the psychological effects of color, as a window into our emotions. Elements of the work were produced by the artist in residence at Pilchuck Glass School and recently at Franz Mayer of Munich, Germany in 2106...

REVIEW: John Adelman in Visual Art Source

November 3, 2017 - John Zotos

John Adelman’s artistic skills are fully in evidence in eleven new drawings completed this year, each executed on canvas in gel ink and acrylic.  They illustrate a wide range of formal approaches through which Adelman follows a strict set of rules to achieve his pictorial goals. This might be regarded as conceptualist process, but the result of his meticulous technique feels more important than the actions used to complete the pieces. He repeatedly uses text and certain shapes like nails traced on the surface while taking a tally. Many of the pieces, like the ethereal “38724," have the number of nails rendered over the surface as their title...

REVIEW: Dornith Doherty at the Amon Carter Museum of Art

October 23, 2017 - Arie Bouman of Arts+Culture Texas Magazine

A black circle fills the frame; a dark void within which small white flecks float. These white specks are plant seeds captured with an X-ray, their ghostly white shells and tails caught in a black petri dish. The piece, by the artist Dornith Doherty, is titled Finite and is part of an ongoing series from her project Archiving Eden; the eponymous show is on view at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art until Jan. 14, 2018....

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.

REVIEW: Michael Young in

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....
