Opening Reception Saturday, August 4, 2012
Mary Tomás Studio Gallery is pleased to host the annual Creative Arts Center of Dallas (CAC) Juried Student and Faculty Exhibit. Since 1965, CAC has been cultivating creativity providing visual arts classes to students of all skill levels and experiences for more than 45 years. CAC has become one of the top adult art education destinations within the North Texas area serving a range of students from teenagers to senior citizens and from beginning to emerging artists.
More than 180 entries were received for the 2012 competition with approximately two-dozen works selected for this important exhibition. Categories included works in oil, watercolor, mixed media, ceramics, and new for 2012 – textiles, fabric and jewelry.
CAC believes the creative spirit exists within us all, and community can be built from a group of people creating art. CAC values diversity, which is reflected in its instructor and membership base. The Creative Arts Center of Dallas (CAC) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.
Artist, curator, and gallery owner Mary Tomás has long encouraged emerging artists by showing their work in a gallery setting. “We have such a wealth of local talent that rarely gets seen by the public” says Tomás. This is the third year Mary Tomás Studio Gallery has hosted the CAC Juried show in her gallery located on Dragon Street in the exciting Design District in Dallas, TX. She has taken a number of CAC artists on as frequent exhibitors in her gallery.
In addition to the CAC exhibition, Mary Tomás Studio Gallery will feature works by professional artists newly associated with the gallery. These artists include Dawn Waters Baker, Marshall Harris, Mark Perry and Damian Robinson.
