Gallery Report - August 5, 2016
Denton's Arts scene has always been vibrant, and it's about time it's highlights the local arts offerings on a weekly basis. Welcome to the first edition of the weekly Gallery Report where we hope to keep you up to date on local exhibitions., pop-up art shows, and other installations.
Right now the list is a little light since the Universities are still on summer break (we've only got a couple more weeks left!) but it won't be long before we are back in full swing of arts all the time. If there is something we missed, let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org
Art Glass Ensembles
513 Bolivar St.
If you like art oversized and nifty stained glass, then head over to Art Glass Ensembles on Bolivar Street where their gallery spaces features two pieces created in 1990 by local artist Terry Sewell. Sewell is known for being the president and owner of Denton Glass Company.
The Bearded Monk
122 E. McKinney St.
Bearded Monk may be a beer store but they have no wall that otherwise lack visual pop. Their boastful list of featured artists include Richard Bradley, Sierra Landeruth, Matthew Sallack, Garret Dennington, Sanford Black, Roy Warren Lunt, Nellie Montgomery, and Eric Mancini. Some of these amazing pieces sell for as low as $20!
Patterson-Appleton Arts Center
400 E Hickory St.
The Patterson-Appleton Arts Center has an epic set of presentations scheduled to be featured in Festival Hall where you can examine unique sculptures crafted by Benjamin Terry. You can see this homegrown talent without paying a dime! You can also buy a yearly membership (for as low as $25 for students) and get into exhibits for free all year. Just saying.
Mulberry Street Cantina
110 W Mulberry St.
This trivia and margarita hotspot has amazing pyrography by Jeremy Sale depicting an epic home run swing from arguably the greatest Texas Ranger ever. MSC also features huge pieces of work made by James Rosin as well as Light and Orbock Art.
Scrap Denton Re:Vision Gallery
420 S. Bell Ave.
Being conscientious about recycling and reusing items is key. Starting this weekend SCRAP Denton proudly presents soft sculptures created by UNT CVAD students in which the works are made from at least 75% reused, repurposed, and upcycled materials. The reception is from 6 - 8pm on August 5th, but work will remain in their gallery for the remainder of the month. If you see something you’d like to buy, you can do that too.
901 Ave. C, Ste 101
tAd is a non-for-profit artist run space that is open Monday - Saturday, 11am - 9pm, located inside the Bowellery. Current exhibitions includes Traces of the Others as part of their Outskirts: Bodies, Places, & Identities series, a project that explores politics and women's issues as told by artists from diverse backgrounds.
West Oak Coffee Bar
114 W Oak St, Denton, TX 76201
The West Oak folks feature an artist of the month in their corridor at the back of their shop. Rather than feature a strictly visual artist, the current flavor is a musician Erik Beruvides. The album covers designed by Kathleen Clark evoke a sense of cultural pride that reveals how proud the artist is of his family’s history. Across 3 albums his songs are structured to present a narrative representing Erik’s grandparents journey as immigrants from Cuba.
