Since 2011 CADD has invited the public to its highly successful fundraiser, Eat Your Art Out. The event, sometimes dinner and sometimes brunch, promises to be unique, fun, and adventurous - including brunch at a mystery destination followed by a special art tour. Destinations differ but may include a collector’s home, an artist’s studio, a CADD member gallery, or another artistic location in Dallas. Proceeds fund the CADD Scholarship and other CADD Educational Programs.
Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas presents: CADD BUS TOUR Saturday, November 2nd, 2019 9:30 am - 1:30 pm
Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas is excited to announce the November 2nd Bus Tour hosted by CADD members Holly Johnson Gallery and Cris Worley Fine Arts at 1845 East Levee Street. Initiated in 2010, these popular bus tours offer participants unique access to Dallas’ most esteemed sites for contemporary art. Guests are provided light refreshments along the way and transported to each location on a private, luxury bus. Previous tours have included visits to the art collection of Cowboy’s AT&T Stadium, corporate art collections, architecturally significant homes and prestigious private collections, as well as many artist's studios.
The day will begin with an exclusive tour of the Deedie Rose Collection and The PumpHouse. The modern home was designed by architect, Antoine Predock. The collection focuses on European, Latin American and American contemporary art, with a particular emphasis on Latin America. It also includes an extensive contemporary artist jewelry collection. Artists on view include Janine Antoni, Louise Bourgeois, Jeppe Hein, Jim Hodges, Liz Larner, Gordon Matta-Clark, Juan Muñoz, Gabriel Orozco, Damián Ortega, Richard Serra, Mira Schendel, Meg Webster, and Lawrence Weiner. Originally a pump station supplying water to the Township of Highland Park, The PumpHouse (featured above) is now a space for art.
The bus tour will continue on to view the art collection and home of Newt Walker and Ashley Tatum. The Walker/Tatum art collection is a blend of both individuals’ memories of the past and hopes for the future. They love nature and have hobbies that enable each of them to spend quality time in the great outdoors. They are fond of wildlife and have concerns about environmental conservation and often these beliefs are visible in their art, whether realist or abstract. Humor, beauty and inspiration are favored over political or Noir themes. (John Alexander's, Taboo Family featured left)
The Bus Tour will conclude with gallery tours and light refreshments at your host galleries. At Cris Worley Fine Arts you will view two exhibitions; Harry Geffert (1934 - 2017): The Paper Works, a rare glimpse into Geffert’s exploration of dimensional cast paper sculptures and Steven Charles: Sewn to the Sky, featuring several new large-scale paintings, works on paper, and a rare sculpture. At Holly Johnson Gallery you will view two exhibitions as well; Kim Cadmus Owens: Forced Perspective, including recent paintings, digital paintings and sculptures, drawings and prints by the Dallas Based artist and William Steiger: Inventor, a solo show of paintings and collages that speaks to the artist’s ongoing fascination with the ‘Age of Invention’.
