Henry Finkelstein

Finkelstein continues his investigation of color and rhythm, with a dynamic quality largely influenced by the Abstract Expressionists. He states, “Unlike strictly abstract painters, I paint mostly from direct observation. Nature offers me a necessary resistance that I find challenging. To this day, discovering new color relationships as I paint from nature remains a central focus of my work.”

Valley House Gallery & Sculpture Garden, 6616 Spring Valley Road

6 to 8:30 p.m.

Frances Bagley & Ryan Burghard: Where You End and I Begin: Relational Dialectics

Local legend Frances Bagley becomes the first Dallas-based artist to show at Cydonia, in a two-person exhibition based on the ideas of marriage and commitment. Bagley answers Ryan Burghard’s call though the presentation of alternative, figurative works. In the context of Burghard’s practice, Bagley’s forms become the missing coefficient. The space where Bagley begins and where Burghard ends is core to the concept.

CYDONIA, 167 Payne Street

6 to 8 p.m.

Soliloquy: Mylan Nguyen

The Public Trust presents Mylan Nguyen in the second installment of Soliloquy, a series of solo exhibitions featuring a single piece of artwork. The series challenges the viewer to engage with an artist’s work by removing familiar viewing elements such as comparison and contrast from the traditional exhibition format. In this, there is the hope to create a more focused dialogue about the artist’s work. For the artist, it exchanges the pressure of having to fill a space with creating a single work to hold the room.

The Public Trust, 2271 Monitor Street

6 p.m.

Art Con 11

Art Con 11 will feature more than 150 local artists who have been challenged to stretch their talents to create a piece of collectible art within 24 hours on a piece of signature Art Con 18 x 18 board. Completed works will be presented for live auction starting at $20, raising money for this year’s beneficiary, Make Art with Purpose.

Skeletons in the Closet

Butch Anthony is an artist not easily defined. One who collects bizarre objects and transforms them into strangely beautiful art for one of America’s favorite roadside attractions, his “Museum of Wonder.” Butch’s artistic spirit sees him apply his talents to a number of different modes and mediums, and he calls his specific genre of work “intertwangelism” — an ism of his own creation.
