Event features unveiling of new mixed media collection, sculptures and benefits Alley’s House
On Saturday, April 3 from 5-9 p.m., Dallasites will celebrate the grand opening of brock studio|gallery and the official unveiling of local artist, Joey Brock with the exhibition of his new series, Northwestern Exposure, and sculptures by Rick Maxwell.
A Texas native, Brock focuses on communicating the clash between urban and natural environments in his works and draws heavily from his frequent travels for inspiration. His latest mixed media collection was inspired by his travels to the Pacific Northwest and incorporates acrylic paint, conté crayon, pencil and paper on clayboard and canvas.
“There is a unique balance that dances between the natural landscapes as they collide with the manmade environment,” said Brock. “I find that there is a certain beauty in the collision of these two worlds and the balance that will eventually emerge.”
Brock first introduced his art six years ago by donating a piece for auction to Alley’s House, a Dallas-based non-profit dedicated to supporting teen mothers. The event served as his foray into the interior design community and since then, private and corporate collectors have enjoyed Brock’s art. In
appreciation, a percentage of opening night sales will be donated to Alley’s House.
The gallery is located at 1320 E. Griffin St. and Brock’s entire collection can be viewed at www.joeybrockart.com.
