Hecho En Dallas

So excited my paintings, "Connected" and "Detached" (above) were selected to be featured in the Hecho en Dallas Exhibition, currently on display at the Latino Cultural Center in Deep Ellum.

Hecho en Dallas
Exhibition is open until April 29, 2011

Hecho en Dallas 2011 features 46 artworks by 42 artists from Dallas and North Texas and includes a variety of themes and media. Over 100 artists submitted more than 300 artworks for review, making this one of the most popular juried shows in the history of the LCC. One reason this show is particularly significant to me is that two years I submitted some pieces, but they were not selected to show, and this year it was very special to receive notice that I was accepted. It really demonstrates the progress that is being made on this little creative journey that I'm on. 

The jurors for Hecho en Dallas 2011 were: Marty Ray, Professor of Ceramics and Sculpture and Art Programs Coordinator at North Lake College and founder of the White Rock Lake Artists Studio Tour; Elizabeth Mellott, professor of Photography and Book Arts at Collin College; and Awadh Baryoum, professor or Drawing and Painting at the Creative Arts Center of Dallas.

Me and my mom at the opening reception.  Mom is an Artist herself, specializing in custom murals, and has always been my biggest cheerleader.

I love watching people look at my paintings at openings.  Kind of stalker-ish? Maybe, but I could have literally sat here all evening and observed people looking at my paintings and the feelings it evoked in them.

Detail of "Detached"
The 8th Annual Hecho en Dallas (Made in Dallas) is a juried exhibition designed to showcase the recent work of professional artists who reside and are active in the artistic environment of the Dallas area. The exhibition is presented annually by the Latino Cultural Center in recognition of the talented pool of artists whose creative endeavors give vitality to the cultural movement in North Texas.
