Justin Locklear is lucky. He knew what he loved to do , had to do, from an early age. As early as elementary school in Atlanta, Georgia, he was doing pretty much anything involving performance.

Artist Spotlight: Vernon Fisher's Pursuit Of The Frivolous And The TragicArtist Spotlight: Vernon Fisher's Pursuit Of The Frivolous And The Tragic

Fri, 12 Aug 2016 14:55:13 +0000

By the early 1980s, Vernon Fisher was part of a loose group of artists who broke with abstract painting. He’d been painting abstract works himself in the ’70s but, discouraged, he began playing with books and texts, scraps he found around his studio. One day, he was printing out words with an old Dymo plastic label maker.

Five years ago, Longhui Zhang flew from China to Denton — his first time outside China. When he landed at DFW, North Texas was not what he expected. He wasn’t expecting a Hollywood Western, but this certainly didn’t look like New York or LA, either.

Artist Spotlight: Denton Violinist Petra KellyArtist Spotlight: Denton Violinist Petra Kelly

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 16:46:04 +0000

Petra Kelly is not a singer-songwriter. She's not a band leader, she's not the vocalist out front. She's the fiddle player off to the side. But she's the epitome of a gigging musician. Kelly waits for the right moment to pitch in the tonal effects her violin can bring to a song -- lift it with ethereal wails or gun it forward, backing up the bass guitar's chopping rhythms.

Sedrick Huckaby paints portraits of people, often his own family members. And for more than a decade now, many of the portraits he’s painted happen to be of quilts. Old-fashioned, family-sewn quilts, the kind made from bright scraps and strips of color, whatever fabric leftovers were at hand.

A concert hall to rival the best in the world. In 1989, planners set the stakes high for the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas. They persevered through two bond elections, a recession and public protests.

Near the Bath House Cultural Center on White Rock Lake, there’s a large semi-circle of poles standing in the water. They’re part of an environmental installation designed as rest stops for birds. It sounds peaceful enough, but artists, lake activists and neighborhood groups are sharply at odds over the bird roosts. What triggered the dispute? The city’s lack of maintenance of the artwork.
