A Successful Dallas Art Fair

We could not have asked for a more positive experience at the Dallas Art Fair last week. The gallery was featured in coverage from Art in America, Interview Magazine, and CultureMap Dallas as a “must-see” of the fair, while selected artists received ample praise for their individual works. Gallery artist Penelope Umbrico was selected by Kenny Goss of the Goss-Michael Foundation as a “fair highlight,” and Ryan Wallace was chosen as the #1 “Artist Under 40 You Should Have on Your Radar” by Artsy, to name a few. The gallery placed works by various artists with prestigious local collections, as well as works by Ryan Wallace with the The Ring Art Center Foundation’s new permanent collection in Miami (FL).

Next up, we’ll see you in the Bay Area for the artMRKT San Francisco fair, May 15-18th at the Festival Pavilion – Fort Mason Center.

Also featuring Michael Bise, Kirk Hayes, Robert Jessup, Lawrence Lee, Trenton Doyle Hancock, and Folkert DeJong, among others, the show brings together artists working in painting, drawing and video who use comic or caracature-like forms to present dark yet often humorous narratives.

See For Me


Tim Bavington Inducted into UNLV Entertainer/Artist Hall of Fame

The gallery congratulates program artist TIM BAVINGTON on his induction into the UNLV Entertainer/Artist Hall of Fame last night!

Says the Las Vegas Review-Journal:

“[The new inductees are] Tim Bavington, a visual artist whose body of work includes the striking transformation of music into color; Sue Kim, a singer and musician who, with her sisters, left South Korea and became international singing stars; and, of course, the late Joe Williams, one of the most acclaimed jazz vocalists ever.

All three artists and entertainers — along with UNLV arts supporter June Brennan and UNLV alumnus Ronnie Vannucci of the band The Killers — will be honored Thursday evening during the 11th annual Nevada Entertainer/Artist Hall of Fame induction ceremony and dinner at UNLV.

Bavington, Kim and Williams, the three Hall of Fame honorees, will receive the Sidney award, named for award-winning movie director and producer George Sidney, who worked with such stars as Sidney Poitier, Tony Curtis, Frank Sinatra, Clark Gable, Ann-Margret, Lana Turner and Howard Keel. (Fans of Las Vegas cinema know that Sidney also directed Elvis Presley and Ann-Margret in 1964’s ‘Viva Las Vegas.’ “

We are very proud of Tim, and congratulate him on this career milestone.
