DALLAS – August 21, 2015 – The Creative Arts Center of Dallas (CAC), a nonprofit school of visual arts and community arts organization geared to beginning, emerging and working artists, will host its third exhibit featuring 21 self-taught artists from The Bridge, Dallas’ largest homeless service center. “From the Street” will open on Saturday, August 29 with an artist reception from noon to 2:00pm and runs through Sunday, October 18. The exhibit will be in the school’s main building at 2360 Laughlin Drive, Dallas, 75228.
Curated by Denny Doran who started the Self-Taught Artist program at The Bridge six years ago the show will include drawings, paintings and jewelry all of which will be for sale with all proceeds going to the artist. The group has also exhibited at Davis Foundry Gallery in Oak Cliff. The artists are: Lee Albritton, Dayna Alvarez, Jacques A. Brooks, Dorothy Burch, Monique Casey, Red Cook, T. Fran, Caroline Fulmer, Chris Harrison, Synicia Johnson, R.L. Jones, Stephen Kehr, Leon, Bubba Mitchell, Roger Montoya, Sister Sheila Moore, Nicole Nash, J.P. Perez, Christopher Stilley, Peter Taul and Sherrie Threlkeld.
The reception will offer an opportunity for the community to meet these artists, including Bubba “One-Eye” Mitchell, a former professional driver who became blind and homeless; Roger Montoya, a Vietnam vet who was on skid-row in Tulsa for over a decade and has recently found an apartment in Milwaukee along with a gallery who now represents him; Synicia Johnson who recently came into the program not speaking or making eye contact and when Denny told her that five her pieces were going to be in the show, she looked at him directly and said, “For Real”.
According to Diana Pollak, Executive Director for the Creative Arts Center of Dallas, the show is the culmination of months of work from these talented street artists. “From the Street” allow these artists a connection to the creative process that leads to many healing experiences and provides insight into the lives of our homeless citizens.”
Located on a two-acre campus four miles east of downtown Dallas, CAC offers more than 500 classes and workshops per year in such disciplines as ceramics, clay sculpture, creative writing, drawing, fiber, glass, jewelry, metal arts, mosaic, painting, photography, printmaking, stone carving and woodworking.
