Earth: Language and Symbols Opens January 20, 2012 at Cara and Cabezas Contemporary in KC Crossroads District

January 13, 2012

Press Release:

Earth: Language and Symbols

Curated by Darin M. White
January 20 – March 10, 2012
Opening: Friday, January 20, 2012, 6-9 pm
From the earth we emerge and we return to the earth.
We explore our world and grasp to adequately describe through language and
symbols who we are and why. Through sculpted clay, compressed burned trees
and dried pulp, minerals retrieved and many other ways we reach out to speak
about the space that we inhabit as we gaze into the heavens. While it may sound
mundane, in actuality there is life at it’s fullest to be explored, and held in our
open hands for however long we are given. This exhibition, featuring work by
Rex Hausmann and Jimmy Greenfield, attempts to dig deep into these notions
through material, action, thought and image.
– Darin M. White, Guest Curator


Universal Language: Rex Hausmann

Universal Language will exhibit a water painting performance, slide-show,
photographs, and drawings from a recent sojourn to Beijing and Hong Kong.
These elements explore an interaction the artist had with a calligraphy master
at the Temple of Heaven where he found that across many cultural barriers,
the two were able to bridge their varying cultural experiences by
communicating through brush and line. Additionally, Universal Language
will include an installation entitled Where There Is Land There Is War,
equating historical events that occurred at the Boston Common.

Signs…  Jimmy Greenfield
We live in a visual world of signs that guide, dictate, and define social norms.
Many of these are culturally specific, but others are universally understood
and form the basis of a symbolic language readable the world over.  The signs
depicted in this show are meant as warnings about the effects of unbridled
population growth that puts ever-increasing pressure on shrinking natural
resources, the wholesale and indiscriminate destruction of the environment,
and the inevitability of human conflict that will follow. Constructed on
desiccated earth, they are meant to inspire meditation about the future with
the hope that by doing so, humans will somehow rise above their differences
and recognize the extreme challenges ahead.  This “evolution of human spirit
and cooperation” is the only process through which we will be able to ensure
and maintain the survival of the living planet.

Rex Hausmann works as a full-time artist in San Antonio, Texas, and
New York City. He currently works in his family’s warehouses, home to
Hausmann Millworks: A Creative Community. Hausmann received a
bachelor of fine arts from the Savannah College of Art and Design. In
Atlanta, Hausmann studied under international artists Sandy Skoglund
and Patrick Dougherty. Hausmann has worked on projects and lectured
both nationally and internationally. His work and large projects often
revolve around identities found in communal and domestic contexts,
tracing their connections to religion and history. Hausmann credits
brother and musician Erik Hausmann as a major influence.
Since moving to NYC in the late 1970’s, Jimmy Greenfield has been
an avid sculptor, percussionist, environmentalist, and citizen activist
committed to community affairs.  In the late 1990’s, his sculpture
became more politically charged dealing specifically with issues of the
environment and human conflict.  To this end, in 2006, he created
Soapbox Gallery, a free street side public art venue in Brooklyn, NY
dedicated to inspiring and promoting uncensored socially relevant
work with a strong political narrative.

Darin M. White is an artist and independent curator based in
Lawrence, Kansas.  With his wife Shannon, a painter and arts advocate
they founded b.a.l.m. (beauty, art & life movement). Together they
promote creativity and action, and encouraging others in their art and
understanding. White continues to expand his artistic medium including:
sculpture, installation, printmaking, drawing, producing/ curating/
juroring exhibitions and writing art reviews and articles. His love and
awe of life and people are intertwined and explored in these various

Higher: Recent Drawings by Michael Krueger
Wonder Fair: Art Gallery, Shoppe & Studio (803 1/2 Massachusetts Street in Lawrence, KS)
Friday, February 25, 6-10pm (Ongoing until Apr. 24th)

From the Organizers:
The artworks for this exhibition explore a collective need to get higher, get lost, reach a higher place, and be transformed. The imagery in these drawings brings together a collection of utopian fetishes; objects and figures perched, often precariously, atop high places and craggy peaks. Through tiny glimpses of early American history and the so-called Age of Aquarius, the drawings also create warm but cautious vignettes of utopianism and escapism. Feelings of isolation, loneliness and abandonment permeate the drawings, contrasted by colorful elation and a sense of purpose through elevation.

Michael Krueger was born on January 5, 1967 in Kenosha Wisconsin. His family moved to South Dakota in 1970 and he spent his childhood years in Sioux Falls. These formative years in the West cultivated a fondness and curiosity for the history of Westward Expansion and the epic struggles that were cast on the Great Plains. In 1990 Michael earned a BFA from the University of South Dakota and in 1993 he graduated with an MFA from the University of Notre Dame. In 1995, Michael moved to Lawrence, Kansas for a teaching post at the University of Kansas. Michael’s creative research has taken him all over the globe from Asuncion, Paraguay to the United Arab Emeritus, to Scotland, England, Belgium, France and Italy. He has given over 100 lectures and workshops at venues such as Cranbrook Academy of Art, RISD, City College of New York, Edinburgh College of Art and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Boston, MA. He has recently had solo shows at Sunday L.E.S., New York, NY, Steven Zevitas Gallery, Boston, MA, Packer/Schopf Gallery, Chicago, IL, Bennington College, Bennington, VT and Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN. Recent group exhibitions include, KRETS Gallery, Malmo, Sweden, Baer Ridgeway, SanFrancisco, CA, Ambacher Contemporary, Munich, Germany, Glasgow Print Studio, Scotland, UK, Adam Baumgold, New York, NY and the Kala Art Institute, Berkeley, CA.

by Josh Adams

The Bourgeois Pig (6 East 9th Street in Lawrence, KS)
Friday, February 25, 6-9pm

From the Organizers:
“These paintings examine the spatial and emotional relationships between facial features and expressions of multiple stacked portraits. Each work is an amalgamation of two or more images of one person. Thoughtfully positioned, the faces dissolve into one another. Their union develops subtle disturbances of clarity and coherence, while seeming to invent one creature of new feeling.

I chose black and white to keep the focus on form and value. Furthermore, I employed a variety of mark making to stimulate the surface and draw attention to process—to yield a sense of transparency, motion and life.”

Josh Adams was born and raised in Kansas City. At an early age he showed artistic interests and was encouraged by his parents to take piano lessons. The piano lessons later turned into drum lessons, which lasted until the end of high school. Josh also found solace in drawing as a means of expression, but never fully pursued the outlet until college. He attended the University of Kansas and graduated in 2006 with a BFA in painting and a minor in art history.

Since graduating, Josh has exhibited his work locally in solo and group shows, toured the country playing music in various ensembles and moved to Los Angeles to seek a professional career in studio drumming-recording with Mike Andrews and Melanie Laurent. He currently lives in Lawrence where he works and makes art and music.

September 17, 2010

There was a great turn out for the first Final Friday event in the newly established
Downtown Lawrence Arts District.  In a more than anticipated highly energized
crowd an estimated 700-1000 individuals poured into the venue, perused
and discussed the art at the 739 Mass “Flash Space”.  It was encouraging to
have quite a bit of press come out for the show opening including Channel 6 News,
Journal World, Review Magazine, and another piece being put out by The Pitch.

There was an excellent review of the show by Ryan LaFerney with
Review Magazine .

Read the Journal Worlds viewpoint of the overall event here
and view some of the Journal Worlds general photographic images

Here are some images from the show opening at 739 Flash Space.
Thank you Lawrence and surrounding areas for your support of art!

The DWR Champagne Chair Contest™ Results 2008

February 5, 2008

Every year I think I will enter this contest after the first of the year.  It always comes at a time that just doesn’t work for my schedule.  This year I was determined to enter something.  I put together a piece from a design I had made a few years ago and then adjusted it.  It was not chosen of the top 50.  I am not one who likes to not win, however I am starting to learn that there is much to be learned in not winning.  Either way, in a couple of hours I produce a mini designed chair out of cork the gold champagne metal cap and the wiring – shown below.  Below that is a copy of The DWR Champagne Chair Contest™ Results 2008.  Click at the link at the bottom of the page to see the original article.

balm “destination” postcards & baker’s anniversary show

November 15, 2007

Show Opening Friday, Nov. 16th, 5-8 p.m.

Art Affair Gallery, 7th & High St, Baldwin, KS

BALM artists & Baker’s Anniversary Show

Beautiful pieces by area artists in all price ranges for gift giving.   Other featured artists include Karen Jacks, Vernon Brecha, Heather Smith Jones, Darin White, Jane Flanders,  Shannon White, D. S. Dunlap, Sam Wagner, Anh Sawyer…  Continue the conversation we began at the original “destination” original art postcard gathering with us.   Please ask questions, as artists love to talk about their artwork. 

View art postcards from other artists and exhibits online to understand the whimsical history and ideas behind “art as postcard”.  The concept celebrates personal voice, the beauty of handmade gifts, accessible artwork in matters of scale and economy, art as visual communication and thought provoking and what is more fun than the idea that one can theoretically or actually put a stamp on a gift and mail the original expression — no styrofoam peanuts, standing in long lines at the post office, reams of giftwrap, issue with wrong size or repeat gift — simple and thoughtful.   If you are truly inspired, then you can make your own art card as well and send or give yours to a friend.
