    Sculptor Kevin Box is continuing his exploration of paper.  His work celebrates the delicate nature of paper in museum quality bronze, stainless steel and aluminum castings.  He mentions that "...he looks at a piece of paper as a "tabla rosa", a clean slate, perfect potential."  Box's sculpture is easily recognized. He began his career in printmaking and then transitioned into sculpture. His study and fascination of origami is also easily recognized. Origami paper planes, crumpled ideas and innovative abstractions are all themes that inspire this portfolio of sculpture. His final bronze sculptures are cast by hand and completed with hand finished touches, exclusive to his work. His compositions are familiar; Birds, horses, the Pegasus and the all too familiar representation of the hand game, Ro Sham Bo, better known as Rock-Paper-Scissors. Combinations of materials such as stone boulders taken from his land in New Mexico along with highly manipulated bronze and steel are all combined and presented as if they were always one. The sculptures range in size from monumental outdoor pieces to small table top pieces. Box has installed many works both nationally and internationally. Box’s practical experience has allowed him to travel locally, nationally and most recently to Bangkok and Sai Noi Thailand. Box attended Pratt Institute, NY, and received his BFA from the school of Visual Arts, NY.  Box was honored in 1998 with the Presidential Grant while attending school in New York.

    Rich Bowman is back in Dallas for his 3rd exhibition with the Gallery.  Bowman is continuing his exploration of painting the sky by studying the density and variance of color. His paintings examine the effects the sky and atmosphere have on the landscape and the people below. The shadows and transparency of endless hues of color are represented in each of his paintings. Capturing the moods of the Midwestern sky is nothing short of a spiritual retreat for Bowman. He comments that "these familiar places calm my soul. The simple act of translating this subject matter grounds me, in truth my mediation."  Bowman's dusky sky-scapes are rich in color and captivating because of the intensity. They can be both calming and disturbing. Violent thunderheads loom overhead and at the same time the experience he shares on the ground is calm and peaceful. Bowman was born in Sherman TX; he currently lives in Kansas City, MO. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts, Kansas City Art Institute.

    Pamela Nelson    "The Pink Bazaar" (detail)  5' x 26'    acrylic on canvas
 
     
   

Nationally and internationally recognized artist Pamela Nelson is presenting her second exhibition at Craighead Green. Not only known for her lively acrylic on canvas paintings, Nelson also held the prestigious position of Presidential Appointee, US Commission for Fine Arts, elected vice-chair and was also appointed to the Public Arts Committee, City of Dallas. Her paintings can be seen in public and private collections around the globe.  Nelson titled this exhibition "The Pink Bazaar". This installation is composed of eleven paintings. The paintings are shown in an environment she created in the gallery to represent both a bazaar and a booth at an art fair. Nelson comments that " the arrangement mimics the sacred art booth which is repeated throughout the world as collectors worship at the art fair cathedrals" The installation is also reflective of her strong opinions about the commerce of art and art prices that she feels are now in the pink. Her reference to pink is also seen buy her painting the walls pink, a compassionate color, nurturing and feminine. Nelson comments that “20 years ago she constructed an installation influenced by the Wendy Reeves collection at the DMA. It was a time of transition in my life. Now, I am in another transition time, living alone, married to art. And time for another installation."
