Join some of Dallas' best artist talent at the Magnolia Gallery on November 6 from 8-10 for an open portfolio exchange. Now in it’s eighth year, The Dallas Portfolio Exchange announces its annual exhibition to be held at the Magnolia Gallery, 3699 McKinney Avenue, Dallas,75204 214-764-9106 (located inside the Magnolia Theatre in the West Village) on November 6 thru January 6. An opening reception will be held on Friday, November 6 from 8 to 10 pm.
Featuring works by Danny Piassick (Betty Lou Phillips has him on speed dial for the photography of her numerous publications) and so many others...
David Lyles conceived the exchange in 2001 in an effort to collect and share fine art photography with his contemporaries in the Dallas commercial market. This year’s exchange includes several new photographers and the subject matter has become a commentary on our daily world.
Each of the 12 professional photographers selected submits 13 identical,archival, photographic prints from one single image; and each artist receives a portfolio of each others work with the 13th print being framed and displayed in various Dallas venues over the course of the year. All of the artists choose their own image to trade and exhibit. Although commercial assignment images are discouraged, none of the imagery is edited by David in an attempt to encourage total creative freedom.
“I’ve had the opportunity to collect some magnificent fine art prints over the last seven years through this exchange; I hope you can join me in celebrating our eighth season opening at the Magnolia Gallery, where you’ll have an opportunity to meet the talent and associate faces with all of these fabulous images.”
This year the twelve contributing photographers are: Fernando Ceja,Stewart Cohen, Adam Fish, Rusty Hill, Phil Hollenbeck, Scott Jenke,David Lyles, Scogin Mayo, Nancy Newberry, Danny Piassick, Hal Samples and Ken Smith.
