Plush Gallery is reopening with a new space in the Dallas Design District!

Jeff Parrott

The debut exhibition of the new Plush Gallery will be "Joyride", a group show featuring new and established artists, and setting the tone for the gallery's new presence.
Artists include:
Brandon Behning (Santa Fe), member of the seminal Meow Wolf collective, and maker of elemental sculpture and painting.
Dylan Hollingsworth (Dallas), talented documentary and situational photographer, whose camera of choice is the Hasselblad.
Peter Ligon (Dallas), known for his idiosyncratic landscapes in oil and pen and ink.
Harlan Lovestone (Detroit), expressionist paintings on unstretched tarps reflect on African American experience.
Robert Moore (Dallas), painter and installation artist whose work combines shamanistic and narrative overtones.
Jeff Parrott (Chicago), a graduate student at the Art Institute of Chicago, and graduate of Texas A&M Commerce; his paintings render a compressed space of surreal and subconcious imaginings.
Robert Reedy (Dallas), printmaker/collage artist and experimental electronic musician.
Mark Todd (Los Angeles), reknowned illustrator whose work is published in GQ, Business Week, The New York Times and many others, showing his remixed comic book panels.

Mark Williams @ SMU

Stopped by SMU on Friday 10/8/10 to see Recent Paintings by Mark Williams in the Pollock Gallery and Small Drawings & Studio Notebooks in the Mildred Hawn Gallery. I became interested in Mark Willams art when I first saw it @ Barry Whistler Gallery in 2007 "Recent Paintings: Opportune Planes" exhibition.

These 2 exhibitions left me wanting to see more.

Thank you Mark for allowing us to peek inside your notebooks.
