A new cast of emerging DFW artists are at 500X, showcasing a range of traditional and contemporary art. Works ranging from photography, printmaking, textile, installation, paintings, video, performance, and conceptual works investigate a variety of content and formal concerns. These 16 active artists have ties to and collaborated with other artist groups such as Art Conspiracy, aphophenia underground, Deep Ellum Windows, Gallery Project in Detroit, Hatch Show Print, Homecoming Committee, Performance SW, The Junior Ward, and Wild Pony Editions, to name a few. They work in the community as educators, coaches, professionals, and mentors across the DFW area. They work and are involved with institutions such as Dallas Museum of Art, UNT, UTD, UTA, Collin College, Dallas Public Library, Modern Art Museum of Forth Worth, Urban Outfitter, Transit Bike Company, and Tarleton State University.
As the oldest artist run co-op in Texas, the idea of collaboration, finding fresh talent and building community is what this current group hopes to continue to foster. Come out to the first show of the 2014 Season, RIPE PRODUCE: A MEMBER SHOW to see what exciting and fresh ideas have been harvested by this upcoming talent within DFW.
