PHIL CRAWSHAY GALLERY
Phil Crawshay specializes in exquisitely detailed, large format fine art photography, often referred to as “HD for photography.”
The work represents the decades of Crawshay’s dedicated involvement and experience within the photography and digital media field. Every piece is handcrafted and produced at the gallery by Crawshay.
By utilizing many different processes, he is able to produce images of stunning clarity at very large sizes.
“Image sharpness across the whole image is extremely important to me,” he says. “Rather than just produce an arty composition, I try to capture the entire scene so it can be transported back to one’s own living environment in the most realistic and detailed way possible.”
The attention to detail does not stop at the photography. At the gallery you will see each piece beautifully presented using a process known as face mounting. This involves adhering the fine art print to the rear of acrylic, which produces an incredibly smooth surface that attracts the light in such a way that it appears to be almost backlit. The added advantage is that the piece is completely sealed and will never degrade. It is an extremely difficult process to achieve.

TONY COLLINS ART
A visit to Tony Collins Art is full of unexpected surprises.
Collins’ work is bold, vibrant and diverse. You will find paintings, drawings and sculptures as well as reasonably priced prints and an eclectic selection of functional artistic metalworks.
His newest digital series, Gun Show, takes an explosive look at the gun as an art form, while exploring the emotions involved in conflicts.
Also a working studio, this Cedars-based operation stays true to the neighborhood’s rich manufacturing roots. Originally a pork rind factory, Collins and his wife, Holly, repurposed the building into an art, lighting and custom metal factory. On any given day, you might see light fixtures in progress that will end up in well-known eateries, like Dickey’s Barbeque, On the Border, Chili’s or Uncle Julio’s.
Collins’ artistic and fabricating talents, combined with some sophisticated equipment, help this small business land large projects and proudly keeps manufacturing alive in the Cedars.
Tony Collins Art is also known for building the structure that showcases the original Pegasus, which now stands at the Omni Dallas Hotel. Their Pegasus corner is a great place to learn some Dallas history and pick up a Pegasus souvenir! Call 214-565-1963 for an appointment.

JEN MAULDIN GALLERY
Jen Mauldin Gallery, located in the Bishop Arts District, showcases a variety of contemporary works by local emerging and mid-career artists.
Our winter exhibition welcomes Hobbes Vincent in At the Circus. Vincent, a surrealist sculptor, works with a variety of mediums to create pieces ranging in size, including The Stag. At 13 feet long, it is currently featured in the lobby of Dallas’ Fairmont Hotel.
Vincent is an often barefoot, occasionally axe-wielding, eternally grinning intellectual giant who weaves one hell of a tall tale. You never know whether you’re getting an accurate portrait of reality or one that’s been manipulated into something far more interesting. His reality, much like his sculptures, is masterfully altered. When asked where he draws his inspiration, Vincent’s answer tends to lie somewhere between mischief and hyperbole. His remarkable attention to even the smallest details makes his surreal sculptures incredibly lifelike while still entirely fantastical. His style, in concert with his eccentric imagination, means every piece is at once immediately identifiable and entirely unique.
Vincent’s exhibition will feature new works and opens November 18.

GINGER FOX GALLERY
The Ginger Fox Gallery, located in the Bishop Arts District, is adding a second location in the Dallas Design District, opening in January 2018.
“We are taking over the much-loved Jones Walker Home space at 1531 Dragon St., next to Christopher Martin Gallery. We wish Tony and Max, the owners of Jones Walker Home, all the best with their new endeavor in Taos, New Mexico,” says Lara Humphrey.
Humphrey and Ginger Fox opened the Bishop Arts gallery five years ago. “We love the district, but we need more space,” says Humphrey. By adding a second location, the duo will be able to show more of Fox’s work as well as art by other artists.
The larger 5,000-square-foot space on Dragon Street will also allow Fox to work in an on-site studio where she will have room for larger-scale paintings.
“We have a real hands-on approach in every aspect of the business, and we are committed to continue providing that level of involvement and care at both locations. We are so excited to have the opportunity to continue to grow and provide inspiring artwork to more people,” Humphrey says.
GINGER FOX GALLERY
CHRISTOPHER MARTIN GALLERY
Founded 22 years ago in Dallas, Christopher Martin Gallery has created the perfect atmosphere to present reverse glass paintings and limited editions by Christopher H. Martin. The gallery is located in the Dallas Design District, with branches in Aspen and Santa Fe. The gallery participates at acclaimed art fairs in Miami, New York, Aspen and Palm Springs. Currently on display are recent works by Christopher H. Martin and sculptures by Gregory Price and Brandon Reese.
Gregory Price’s path to a finished glass sculpture most often employs casting, molding, forming and fusing techniques. The final gesture seems to be in constant play between motion and gravity. His work reveals new directions in the realm of contemporary sculpture, and specifically those artists working with glass.
Brandon Reese’s stoneware sculptures are predominantly known for their simple, familiar forms created in a variety of methods and at scales that push the traditional boundaries of ceramic art. Reese’s fascination with architecture and patterns in life become the language that exposes his intrigue with the relationships that connect individuals. The gallery is proud to show works by these talented artists.

“I have found that the passion of my life is working with the shifting energies of molten glass into its final stages of artistic completion. Glassblowing, for me, is a magical act of translating the ethereal into solid form. And the creation of each piece is a journey, as I strive to trust in the path the glass chooses for me,” says Gappa.

BISHOP ARTS MODERN GALLERY
Cameron Smith continues to evolve as both a gallerist and artist-in-residence at his Bishop Arts Modern gallery nestled inside studio one at the Bishop Arts Co-Op. His latest works are a fusion of media, with his Kind of Blue installation garnering patrons from Grammy winners to professional athletes and designers alike. Smith’s latest installation features works inspired by his global travels as a jazz personality and curator for the Java Jazz Festival in Jakarta, the Cancun Jazz Festival, and the Dave Koz and Friends at Sea cruise. “The musicians have been a huge inspiration to me on so many levels, both as collaborators and as my closest friends. My work and travel with Chris Botti and Sting, in particular, have shaped the way I look at the world and my artistic practice,” says Smith.
The Bishop Arts District has been the perfect backdrop for Smith’s gallery and creative space, and patrons are taking notice. With the explosion of upscale loft living and apartments in the neighborhood, the gallery has become a hub for collectors to gather and secure original works and collaborate on the overall design of their living spaces.

BEAUDRY GALLERY & FRAMING
Guggenhome is a showroom featuring contemporary art and furniture design located at 1426 North Riverfront Blvd. The curated presentation inside allows both designers and collectors the opportunity to visualize a piece of art in the context of our living environment. Each piece in the collection represents a different perspective and technique that explores contemporary abstract art.
Tamara White’s work is a study in texture and the interaction of color and shadow. The organic process of watching a painting come together drives artist Julie Dailey. Using acrylic and acrylic media, she allows each piece to dictate its composition. Breaking the flat plane of a painting is Glenn Comtois’ mission. The interaction of finishes, materials and texture creates movement across each work. Rick Griggs’ artistic journey began in his father’s wood-centric workshop. The concept of converting something from its rough and economic state to an asymmetrical piece of art is inherent in his 1967 series.
The common themes of design, color, emotion, texture and material culminate in the unique modern collection at Guggenhome. Where the art of living meets the art we live with.

If you want it 100 percent real, then you will love the artwork of Sierra Barnes.
She is a young, self-taught artist in Dallas. Barnes created one of her first paintings in 2002 at five years old after being diagnosed with craniopharyngioma (brain tumor). She named the painting Complicated (pictured). In 2003, she was granted her wish by the Make-A-Wish Foundation of North Texas to meet singer/actress Hilary Duff. Today, Barnes continues to work with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. All of the obstacles and challenges she’s been through have only inspired her and motivated her as an artist, as well as a person. With every piece of art she creates, Barnes writes a poem to go along with it, which comes handwritten by her on the back of each piece. She paints abstract and abstract figure paintings using different mediums and techniques. Barnes’ art is inspired by her daily life, the things she observes and the things she’s been through. Art helps her cope in a world full of chaos.
LMB ART GLASS
Now just a year old, LMB Art Glass strives to bring vibrant and unique handblown art glass to the Dallas Design District. The collection includes work from more than 50 artists located all over the United States and Canada.

Some create very large sculptural pieces and frequently design unique installations, while others focus on intricate designs with very precise details.
Although new to the Dallas market, the gallery was previously located in Kansas and has longstanding relationships with all of the featured artists, many of whom have work included in private and corporate collections as well as glass and contemporary museums across the country. LMB Art Glass is a young gallery, but is the exclusive Texas dealer of many well-established artists.
The selection at LMB Art Glass focuses on quality and diversity, with pieces ranging from jewelry and small gift items to free-form focal pieces. The color, texture and dimension of each piece is unique and best explored in person.

“With all of my heart and soul, I am a painter,” says Emilie Beadle. Her paintings are constructed through an orderly and yet free-flowing arrangement of color. Paint gets slapped on in many layers with a palette knife. She finds this method to be mentally freeing, and it allows her to focus on placement of color and texture. From her nostalgia-inducing Cityscapes and breathtaking aspen forests to her vibrant abstracts, this style is the one constant.
Beadle’s travels led her to Hawaii where her initial training introduced her to painting with a palette knife. Her work is constantly and boldly evolving with great intention. Often, her inspiration comes from day-today life and her surroundings. She finds inspiration in sunlight streaming through the trees, a quiet street at dawn, the vibrant energy found in the city. She is also inspired by emotions and strives to let them shine though, particularly in her abstract work.
Beadle’s work has been compared to famous artists such as Hofmann, Pissarro and Klimt by Chicago Tribune art critic Lori Waxman. Her work can be found in many private, corporate and public art collections, such as the Henry Ford Hospital and Bank of America. This past spring she was featured on the PBS television program Detroit Performs.

ABSTRACT ART BY NAOMI
As a self-taught artist, Naomi Butler’s painting style and techniques keep evolving and will probably continue to do so. “It would be boring to me to paint in the same style all of the time,” says Butler of Abstract Art by Naomi.
Most of her paintings now have many layers to them before they are completed. Having fun with paint is the main focus of her work, along with design, color, composition, cohesion, shapes and marks, and Butler sometimes experiments with texture to enhance a design as well. She loves all kinds of color schemes—bright, neutral and in-between. Butler understands the importance of creating something unique for each client.
Doing commission artwork has opened the door to so many possibilities and learning opportunities, which continues to bring new creative aspects to her art. “I love a challenge and am always excited to see what the next painting is going to be,” says Butler.
Follow her on Instagram @naomi.butler to see new artwork as it’s posted.

WILLIAM CAMPBELL CONTEMPORARY ART
William Campbell Contemporary Art is please to show the artwork of Beverly Penn in a new exhibition, Perpendicular to the Force of Gravity, open from October 21 to November 25, which includes Penn’s signature cast bronze sculptures generated from botanical forms. A suite of six botanical monoprints will accompany the new sculptures.
Penn’s sculptures hang on the wall like vertical landscapes, visually mapping the space they occupy and presenting the viewer with a complex array of ornate lines and textures that call attention to the beauty of natural forms, both inherent and manipulated. The artist describes their meandering patterns as analogous to the rhizomatic structures present in the weeds and other invasive plants that inform her work. The resultant sprawl evokes a controlled chaos—nonlinear, complex pathways meticulously arranged and contorted to serve a specific aesthetic purpose.
Paintings by Lloyd Martin will also be introduced. From Rhode Island, Martin has exhibited extensively in New York and we are excited to represent his work in Texas! His geometric works are layered with the history of his underpainting, layers of color adding depth and softening the geometry.
WILLIAM CAMPBELL CONTEMPORARY ART
Debra Paysinger taught high school science and math for 10 years, but the arrival of her third child sent her into early retirement. A plethora of needlepoint projects allowed her artistic expression within the constraints of parenthood. When all the kids learned to drive, Paysinger found herself with time for painting, and the last needlepoint project went into a drawer–– unfinished.
The artist’s master’s degree in biology has informed her subject matter, as she paints birds, lures, sea life and rabbits—or raddits, as she endearingly refers to them. She owns the trademark for the term “the raddit” and each is numbered within the painting.
Paysinger assigns a not-to-berepeated human name to each bird she paints. These names are found on the back of each work.
You can find Paysinger’s art in Studio 151 Fine Arts Gallery on Church Street in Charleston, South Carolina, and Ellen Taylor Interiors + Design in the Vista in Columbia, South Carolina.
