Fresh Faces 2 X 2
Bath House Cultural Center
December 3, 2011 through January 28, 2012
The Bath House Cultural Center presents Fresh Faces 2 X 2, an art exhibition featuring artworks in a variety of media by more than forty local and regional artists. The exhibition runs from December 3, 2011 to January 28, 2012. The Bath House will be closed for the Holidays on the last week of December.
The Bath House will host an opening reception with the artists and curator on Saturday, December 3, from 7 to 9 PM. Both the exhibition and the reception are free and open to the public.
Fresh Faces sets out to highlight the exceptional talent and innovation of discovered and yet-to-be-discovered artists from the Dallas – Fort Worth (DFW) region in a diverse mixed media invitational exhibition organized by Dallas curator, Rita Barnard.
For years, the Bath House Cultural Center has demonstrated a consistent interest in and support for local talent. One of the goals of the center is to create exhibition opportunities for established and emerging artists who have never exhibited at the center before. Many artists, correspondingly, also seek a chance to find new venues to present their works of art to increase their professional growth. The Fresh Faces exhibition accomplishes the objectives of both the cultural center and the visual artist by introducing unseen and new talent to the Bath House artistic community and by creating an opportunity for artists to share their works with new audiences in a new art place.
The artists participating in the 2011 Fresh Faces exhibition are:
Ray Alvarez, Vicki Barringer, Carol Beesley, Coral Bourgeois, Todd Camplin, Michael Christopher, Dan Colcer, Brian A. Crawford, Dave Cudlipp, Kiki Curry, Chance Dunlap, Brett Dyer, Suzanne Edmonson, Peggy Epner, Angie Fitzgerald, Brad Ford Smith, George Fowler, Frankie Garcia III, Mary Gargour, Lydia Gowens, T.J. Griffin, Jeremy Hahn, Luke Haynes, Ellie Ivanova, Brian Keith Jones, Sonali Khatti, Dave Klucsarits, Bonny Leibowitz, Michael Longhofer, Laurie Mahoney, Jeanne C. Neal, Lisa Yelizaveta Nersesova, Ricardo Paniagua, Dean Pettit, Carolyn Rekerdres, Mike Salcido, Clint Scism, Brian Scott, Kasten Searles, Caroline Shaw Ometz, Jane Sublett, Steve Uriegas, Robin A. Walker, and Douglas Winters.

Ms. Barnard has also been in the freelance graphic arts business for more than twenty years.
