Art Here Lately #14

Art in the Hinterlands  — I once wrote negative opinions about an amateurish show in Rockwall, Texas. These artists invited me back to see their latest work.

Visiting Old Friends on the White Rock Lake Artist's Studio Tour 

Nada Dada 2012 — not the Dallas Art Dealers Associations humongous art walk, just a bunch of seven galleries, of which I picked four

Terry Hays and I created and curated Curate. Collaborate: Cura! Cura! Cura! at the Bath House, the first of a series of exhibitions curated by one known curator (me, J R Compton) who then picks someone else (Terry Hays) to work with to curate a curated exhibition.

This story features Bernardo Cantu, Eric de Llamas and Sam England, Ashley Bryan, Kim Alexander, Tim Harding, Sunny Sliger, Diane Sikes and Sedrick Huckaby

There's also a story about The Artists by Terry Hays.

Which is followed by The Thursnight Addendum — the show opened that Saturday (I think I remember), but it did not come all together until the Thursnight before. Lots of pictures showing a show coming together at long last.  

The Oak Cliff Visual Speed Bump Art Tour 2012

Dichroic reflections, neo-geo shards, lemur tails, subaqua-ography, yarn bombs, big burger art, hand-shakes, Trailer Cakes & Red Velvet Cakes - another one of those, throw-them-all-together art reviews of a bunch of openings, events and stuff that happened on one day or afternoon and night.

Shamrock Hotel +  Continental Gin Open Houses + Billy Hassell at The MAC — usually, we love, love, love open houses, and always we like like like Billy Hassell, about whose work I've been writing almost as long as I've been writing for this rag. Plus a few years.

Radical Regionalism panel 

Cassandra Emswiler Gilds the Silk Lily — sometimes a really really fine show happens and I get to take pix.

Xpo excerpts, rubber rubbings + food art on a wet night
