Exhibition: 02. April until 07.Mai 2011.

Opening: Saturday, 09. April 2011, 18:30 - 20:30.

Glas 206 | 2010 | oil on canvas | 30 x 45 cm
--Behind this mysterious title you can find the first prescription for the production of glass handed down. It was found in a library made of clay boards of the Assyrian king „Assurbanipal” (7". Century before Christ)

--In Eyfferths still life there are reflected glass envelopes combined with fruits, flowers and folding cloths. His compositions are unspectacular quiet and objective, there is no content-full charge. This is also because it is industrially produced, modern objects. It is about the state of the things, around surfaces, around perception. --It is about the exact vision.

--Thus the artist develops and refines on and on his own recipe to the representation of pictorial questions and his new works win in their clarity and objectivity at expression strength.

--Eyfferth was born in 1957 in Hanau and since 1993 he is freelance artist. Since 2006 he is a member of the Frankfurter Künstlergesellschaft, and since 2008 he is teaching at the Fachoberschule für Gestaltung, Hanau. In 1997 he got the Cläre-Roeder-Münch-Preis, in 2006 the culture price of the Main-Kinzig-Kreis and 2011 the second price of the Kunstpreises der Kulturstiftung der Sparkasse Karlsruhe

Friends of the Galerie Eigenheim,
--In 2011, the Galerie Eigenheim from Weimar awards again a scholarship for young artists. Because of space infrastructural changes the constitutions slightly modified compared to previous years. In the last 3 years the scholarship was coupled to a six-month residency in the premises of the gallery, it will be advertised as a one-month Artist in Residence program this year.
--Related to meaning of the name origin of the gallery, an artist or a group of artists can use all rooms of the Gallery from mid of July till mid of august for presentation, work and society. Together with our 3M program (muse, mentor, marketing), we are strongly supporting the scholarship holder during his stay and promote him/her work the best way we can.

--We hereby call for national and international artists of all directions to supply until May 31, 2011 for the scholarship at Galerie Eigenheim in 2011. We look forward to varied submissions and unusual concepts.

--At the scholarship no monetary funding is coupled. Housing and accommodation will be made available in Weimar. A regular presence during the fellowship is desired.

-- Freunde der Galerie Eigenheim,
--Auch im Jahr 2011 vergibt die Galerie Eigenheim aus Weimar wieder ein Stipendium an junge Künstler. --Aufgrund räumlich infrastruktureller Änderungen ist dieses jedoch in seinem Aufbau gegenüber den Jahren zuvor leicht Verändert. In den letzten 3 Jahren an einen halbjährlichen Atelieraufenthalt in den Räumlichkeiten der Galerie gekoppelt, wird das Stipendium dieses Jahr als ein einmonatiges Artist in Residence Programm ausgeschrieben.
--Ganz dem Sinne des Namensursprungs der Galerie werden einem Künstler oder einer Künstlergruppe für den Monat Juli die Räumlichkeiten der Karl-Liebknecht-Str. 10 in Weimar für Präsentation, Arbeit und Gesellschaft zur Verfügung gestellt. Zusammen mit unserem 3M Programm (Muse, Mentor, Marketing) liegt es uns stark daran dem Stipendiat während seines Aufenthaltes zu unterstützen und richtungweisend zu fördern.

--Hiermit fordern wir Künstler aller Richtungen aus dem In und Ausland dazu auf sich bis zum 31.Mai 2011 für das Stipendium 2011 der Galerie Eigenheim zu bewerben. Wir freuen uns auf vielseitige Einreichungen und ungewöhnliche Konzepte.

--An das Stipendium ist keine finanzielle Unterstützung gekoppelt. Übernachtung und Unterkunft wird in Weimar zur Verfügung gestellt. Eine regelmäßige Anwesenheit während der Stipendiums ist erwünscht.

--Galveston Arts Center is pleased to present Ann Wood: Garnish, a site-specific installation by Galveston-based artist Ann Wood. The exhibition will open during the April 30th ArtWalk and remain on view through June 5, 2011. Curator Clint Willour will lead a gallery talk with the artist at 6:30 pm during ArtWalk.
--Garnish will explore issues of attraction and repulsion, beauty and decay, seduction and perversion. --Wood uses a variety of media in her installations including yarn pom poms, faux flora and fauna, puffy paint, rubber and sequins. Rich, cake-frosting colors entice the visitor to enter an environment that at the outset appears absurdly saccharine and serene. Closer inspection often reveals that not all is as cheerful or tranquil as expected, as black crows dissolve into puddles of inky goo, tree branches ooze, and fallen cherry blossoms and fuzz balls blanket the ground.
--Statements on environmental policy and man versus nature are not what the artist intends, although the processes of growth and decay are forefront in her work. Taking a cue from traditional Dutch and Spanish still-life (or “dead nature”) paintings, Wood precisely arranges each tableau to include elements of not only both the living and the dead, but the processes in between. “Nature and the food chain have always informed my work, as has the idea of attraction/repulsion and traditional beauty,” writes Wood. “However, the idea of being lured into a dangerous situation has become a new conceptual obsession of mine…. [I’ve] started to look more closely at the natural cycle of growth and decay that occurs around me every day.” The artist also alludes to this duality with the title “Garnish,” citing its meaning as adornment, decoration, or embellishment, but also its legal connotations of warning, the extortion of money or withholding of funds.
--Ann Wood was born in Sacramento, California and raised in Eureka. Wood received a FBA in Art with an emphasis on painting from California State University at Chico. She earned an MFA in painting from the University of Texas at San Antonio. Her work has been included in exhibitions at venues across Texas including the Dallas Center for Contemporary Art; Arthouse, and Women & Their Work, Austin; the Arlington Museum of Art; the University of Texas at San Antonio Art Gallery and San Antonio College Visual Arts Center Gallery. Recent one-person exhibitions of her work have been shown at Lawndale Art Center, Houston, and San Jacinto College South. The artist lives and works in Galveston.
--Galveston Arts Center is operating in a temporary downtown gallery space—the site of the former Maceo’s Spice and Import Company located on the corner of Market and 25th Streets. The administrative offices are also at this location. The exhibition gallery and selections from GAC’s retail gallery, ArtWorks, are open to the public Tuesday through Saturday from 11 am to 5 pm and Sunday by appointment only.
Funding for GAC’s exhibition programs is provided by The Brown Foundation, Inc., Houston Endowment, Inc., Harris and Eliza Kempner Fund, The National Endowment for the Arts, Texas Commission on the Arts, the City of Galveston through the Hotel Occupancy Tax Fund, The Levin Family Foundation, and the generous support of the community, volunteers and an active membership. GAC’s Art for All Education Program is supported in part by the Harry S. and Isabel C. Cameron Foundation, Texas Commission on the Arts, The Brown Foundation, Inc., Alice Taylor Gray Foundation, Harris and Eliza Kempner Fund, and the Jr. League of Galveston County’s Community Assistance Fund.

"Medicina", new work by David Hale and Kris D, opening April 2nd, 2011.


--"Medicina is the connection that we all feel. We as a people are in a time of change; true medicine will help navigate us through this change...We see truth in its vast shapes and forms, and this is the well which we 'draw' from."
-David Hale and Kris D
--Our April show promises to be a visually stunning, large-scale installation with over 300 drawings and paintings, transforming our white walls into a microcosm of David Hale and Kris Ds unique reveries. The artists have also compiled their work into a handmade book, which will be available for purchase at the gallery, along with various prints and a limited-edition clothing line featuring the artists work printed on organic bamboo fabric. Live music at the opening by Rahasya from Athens.
--Please join us on April 2nd from 7-10 pm to eat, drink, and enjoy the work of these exceptional artists. Be sure to check out the openings at Beep Beep and Kibbee Gallery as well, as part of the monthly Ponce Crush art stroll!
New in the boutique!
--We have a spring selection of pendant necklaces from Boston designer Danielle Spurge (aka The Merriweather Council). Each necklace has a unique design that is hand-embroidered on fabric and encased in silver. A charming and slightly quirky gift that is perfect for all those charming, quirky girls you know.
--Resolve to turn over a new leaf this season with Screech Owl Designs eco-friendly, hand-printed blank journals. Each journal is printed on 100% recycled paper and features a selection of pen and ink illustrations on the front and back cover. Repose has 144 tiny sofas on which to contemplate peace and tranquility, while Propel offers you 108 propellors to move your life forward.
--Woodtecs iPhone/iPad docking stations are handmade from actual logs found near the artists home in upstate New York, and they still smell like cedar! Each dock is one of a kind and polished to perfection. We have dual and single docking stations available for you to connect your modern technology back to the earth, while recharging your home décor.
--Add to your art collection with our selection of prints by Nashville artist Hollie Chastain. Hollie uses found paper and collage techniques to create her detailed, intriguing scenes that are at once historical and slightly mystical. She often lets the materials dictate the subject matter, incorporating water stains, scribbles, and the natural aging of the found paper into her work, which makes for truly unique pieces.

Heart Is Where the Art Is: About Young Blood
Voted Best of Atlanta by Creative Loafing and Atlanta Magazine, Young Blood Gallery & Boutique is a place to find your passion. Young Blood gallery was founded in 1997 when owners Maggie White and Kelly Teasley saw a gap between the incredible talent of local, unknown artists and the opportunities they were being given within the traditional art establishment. Since then, Young Blood has led an explosion in independent galleries, while remaining at the forefront of cutting-edge art. Uniqueness, affordability and community remain the watch words of Young Blood.
