CHRISTOPHER MARTIN GALLERY
Founded 22 years ago in Dallas, Christopher Martin Gallery has created the perfect atmosphere to present reverse glass paintings and limited editions by Christopher H. Martin. Located in the Dallas Design District, the gallery is directed by Natalie Crosby. Christopher Martin Galleries are also located in Aspen, Colorado, and Santa Fe, New Mexico. The gallery also participates at acclaimed art fairs in Miami, the Hamptons, New York City, Chicago, Aspen and Palm Springs.
Currently on display at the Dallas gallery are selections of work by Christopher H. Martin and sculptures by Michael Enn Sirvet for the Winter Show. Martin abstracts his observations of nature using his signature reverse painting technique applied to the back of acrylic panels. At first glance, Martin’s and Sirvet’s works display a rational balance and an undeniable harmony. Upon contemplation, the pieces reflect an organic sense of existence and a natural ability to transform the spaces that they inhabit.
While creating his Aria Discs, Martin was inspired by the orbits of moons and planets in the solar system. The discs feature subtle metallic hues and iridescence. The Aria Discs were chosen by Art Miami as Special Projects for Art Wynwood, during Presidents’ Day weekend 2017.

GINGER FOX GALLERY
Ginger Fox Gallery is kicking off its fifth year in the Bishop Arts District. The gallery primarily features paintings by Ginger Fox, but also represents a select group of other local fine artists, including Juli Price and Jennifer Lashbrook.
Ginger Fox began professionally showing her artwork over 15 years ago at established, highly regarded galleries across the country before collaborating with partner Lara Humphrey to open and show exclusively at Ginger Fox Gallery.
Upon visiting the gallery you will find several series of paintings mastered by Fox, from magical realism to abstract expressionism. “People are surprised by my abstracts if they are first introduced to my detailed realism. In fact, I have been painting abstract expressionism for over 20 years,” Fox says.
She attributes her range to the fact that she is ambidextrous and paints with both hands— sometimes at the same time. Fox feels as though it might help her in accessing both brain hemispheres, with each side functioning in very different ways. Detail work seems to require one way of thinking—in which stopping and starting is not a problem—while the purely intuitive, loose style of abstract expressionism requires another.

BISHOP ARTS MODERN
Bishop Arts Modern gallery, at 518 W. Davis St., is the anchor of the burgeoning Bishop Arts Co-op in Dallas and has quickly established itself as a trusted resource for designers and collectors with an eye for modern style, minimalism and authenticity. The Co-op’s seven studios and common gallery space are home to some of the region’s most evocative and best-known artists, including Willie Baronet, Loran Thrasher, Liz Dodd, Shoby Modjarrad, as well as the Decorazon Gallery. “I wanted to give emerging artists from the Bishop Arts District a fullthroated and uncensored voice, so I launched the BAM gallery as a canvas on which they can create freely and connect with patrons who understand just how undervalued their works truly are,” says Cameron Smith, the gallery’s owner, curator and artist in residence.
The gallery has a muscular, minimalist stance with whitewashed open spaces bathed in natural light, glistening bone-colored concrete floors and complimentary cocktails should you desire. The gallery invites you to attend ARTX4, featuring new works from Cameron Smith in the first of four exhibitions titled Life in Black & White, which premieres the evening of Saturday, April 8, with the artist in attendance.
Bishop Arts Modern
After living all over the world, New Zealand-based artist Scott Dawson settled in Dallas and created CINQ Gallery. The gallery supports sophisticated talent with a focus on providing emerging and mid-career artists a platform to showcase and develop their individual talents. CINQ’s style and sensibility offers a unique blend of artistic disciplines and design, creating an enjoyable experience for both the artist and viewer.
CINQ’s philosophy is to celebrate the diverse nature of producing and experiencing art. The gallery features the work of a multitude of artists, from both local and international backgrounds. Artists John Peralta and Adriana Cobo-Frenkel explore sculpture through natural and man-made materials, while artistic layers, both physical and metaphorical, fascinate mixed-media artists Shayema Rahim, Robert Oltarzewski and Jennifer Wagner. Abstract photographer Rodolfo Choperena creates dazzling prints on metal, and artists Steven Tye Culbert, Katie O’Sullivan and Oscar Mejia live in a world of vivid paintings. With degrees in photography and design, Dawson brings his own painting, drawing and printmaking talent into the gallery.
WALL Gallery is an exceptional art space located in the Dallas Design District. Our principal focus is the representation of local and international contemporary artists whose diverse practices include painting, drawing, sculpture and jewelry design. A schedule of art exhibitions throughout the year bring art collectors and designers the most current series of contemporary art by the gallery’s established group of artists. A truly unique space, WALL Gallery is open to the public and sets itself apart in the Dallas Design District with its 2,000-square-foot modern industrial interior and beautiful 1,700-square-foot courtyard surrounded by a lush wall of bamboo. The gallery space is fully equipped and available for event rental and provides a beautiful setting for your private event. This spring we are exhibiting large-scale wood sculpture created by artist Jeff Robinson, scheduled to open March 16, and French-Swiss artist Amélie Ducommun’s latest series of abstract paintings based on a study of water movement, opening April 1. May 8 an exhibition is scheduled to open for New York artist Kim Schmitt Thomas. Her series of acrylic on wood paintings have a street art aesthetic with layers of figures that carry a deep dialogue within the artist’s soul.
Tom Hoitsma’s art can be transcendent. The size of the work, the heavily layered paint and the almost sculptural quality of the 4-inch-deep canvases create a dynamic visual experience. “Something happens when I create work at a certain scale,” Hoitsma observes. “In all of my work a sense of the physical is very important. Putting the brush in paint, placing the paint on the canvas or wood. The goal is for the painting to change the air in the room.”
Hoitsma studied with worldrenowned art historian and author Harry F. Gaugh, who was integral to fostering Hoitsma’s interest and understanding of the “monumental” large-scale abstract expressionist painters of the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s. While still attending college, Hoitsma had the opportunity to intern with the celebrated feminist artist Miriam Schapiro. This experience changed the course of his work and continues to influence his painting to this day.
“Exploring how specific combinations of marks and colors affect me in profound ways is the focus of my work today,” he says. “I refer to my current large-scale paintings as deconstructed landscapes, and while the starting point is often inspired by landscape and/or the natural world, the objective is a vibrant, tactile visual experience.”

Bee Street Studio is a warehouse- style gallery offering full-service art consultation. It is owned and operated by motherdaughter team Ann Catherine Easterling and Delaney Campbell.

PHIL CRAWSHAY GALLERY
Phil Crawshay specializes in exquisitely detailed, large format fine art photography, often referred to as “HD for photography.”
The work represents the decades of Crawshay’s dedicated involvement and experience within the photography and digital media field. Every piece is handcrafted and produced at the gallery by Crawshay.
By utilizing many different processes, he is able to produce images of stunning clarity at very large sizes.
“Image sharpness across the whole image is extremely important to me,” he says. “Rather than just produce an arty composition, I try to capture the entire scene so it can be transported back to one’s own living environment in the most realistic and detailed way possible.”
The attention to detail does not stop at the photography. At the gallery you will see each piece beautifully presented using a process known as face mounting. This involves adhering the fine art print to the rear of acrylic, which produces an incredibly smooth surface that attracts the light in such a way that it appears to be almost backlit. The added advantage is that the piece is completely sealed and will never degrade. It is an extremely difficult process to achieve.

HOLDER DANE GALLERY AND STUDIOS
The soft expressions in oils by Pamela Blaies represent the variety of art within the inviting Holder Dane Gallery space. The old masters-style hint of light on glass and silver with roses bent against flow-blue pottery demonstrate Blaies’ classical style of soft-edged brushstrokes.
David Robin Hoyt is new to the gallery and brings a fresh contrast with his stark, white mid-century modern forms. His cleanly carved lines create subtle shadows and pleasing curves. Sculptures range from tabletop size (pictured) to commissioned wood forms that rise 25 feet and fill lofty heights in both lobbies and residences.
Pam Stern’s Reliquaries, done in her illustrator style, are the most sought after of all her highly original sculpture.
A rare bird oil painting by Ann Hardy is only a small part of her very large talent. Adding to her lifetime of achievements, Hardy recently received her Masters Signature Membership in the Outdoor Painters Society and Signature Membership from the American Impressionist Society.
MT Hunt brings an exciting abstract representation to the gallery. Her large-scale acrylic paintings feature bold colors that recede into floating layers of movement and reflect the passion that Hunt paints into her canvases.

Stufflebeam, who now runs the space on her own, is also among the gallery’s artists and paints primarily in abstract acrylics. “I paint with music,” she says, “and put down what I’m feeling onto the canvas.”
Two of the gallery’s newest additions are Laura Eisen Hunt an acrylic painter with a graphic design background who sometimes includes multimedia collages in her repertoire, and Mary Ann White who is also a multimedia and acrylic artist. In addition to occasional openings, Art on the Boulevard also holds open-house soirees every season.

Art connects us to our hearts. When you experience that soul ache, you have found your art language. Striving to create art that spoke to her and others’ deepest levels led Amy McKenzie to study art at The University of Texas while majoring in Interior Design. She also studied under renowned portrait artist Kay Polk. Now primarily focused on abstract art in a variety of media, McKenzie explores different textures and palettes to create a visual feast for the eyes with each painting. Gaining inspiration from nature, she prefers a strong composition of neutral tones with pops of bright color. Accented with intuitive strokes of charcoal or pastel, her paintings resonate on a subconscious level. With patrons all over the country, art by Amy McKenzie has become more recognizable and more valuable to collectors. Complementing many interior styles, McKenzie’s paintings create a beautiful focal point and conversation piece, without distracting from the overall design of a space. View her artwork in person at Kerr Collection in the Dallas Design District or contact her directly for availability of existing paintings or custom commission work. Happy to work with clients directly or through their designers, McKenzie uses fabric or paint swatches to perfectly harmonize her art with your overall design scheme.

Known among his friends as the Saltwater Cowboy, Bob Graham is an artist based in Charleston, South Carolina, whose love of the West knows no bounds. Over his two-and-half-decade career, Graham has mastered art through storytelling in his emotionally expressive paintings and drawings.
“My goal is to tell a story to evoke an emotion in the viewer. I feel art is a journey whose elusive goal is to communicate beauty that the creator has placed before us,” Graham says.
Combining his love of Western art and horses, his work often portrays the rugged rodeo cowboy who sought to explore, tame and ultimately survive the challenges of the vast wilderness of America. He enjoys painting people, especially cowboys. “I’m intrigued by their love of nature, their bond with their horses and their cowboy code of ethics. They evoke a spirit of a bygone era. While my work is essentially realistic, I always try to leave something to the viewer’s imagination. I want viewers to leave with their own story about the painting and to finish it in their own mind. Accuracy, attention to detail and dramatic impact are all characteristics that I try to instill in my work. I want my art to sing. I want to capture that unique sense of feeling in that one moment in time.”
