The University of Dallas Upper Gallery is pleased to present Barometer, an exhibition featuring works by John Adelman. An artist talk will be held on Friday, March 5, from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. followed by an artist reception from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
The drawings of John Adelman are a result of a unique method using rules of an equation set by the artist. His methods complexity is masked by the overall ethereal appearance of the work. Upon closer examination, one may discover layers of miniscule lines made by handwritten dictionary definitions and traced objects. In addition, Adelman's new work exploring negative space through shaped paper and broadened use of color will be exhibited.
Adelman received a B.F.A. in Drawing, Painting, and Printmaking from The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio in 1992. He received a M.F.A. in Drawing and Painting from the University of North Texas in Denton in 2006. Currently, John Adelman resides in Houston, Texas and is represented by Holly Johnson Gallery in Dallas, Texas and Access Art in Bexley, Ohio.

The University of Dallas Haggerty Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition Landscape
Affected curated by Kim Cadmus Owens. In this exhibit artists paint landscape as subject
or point of departure. The works in the show range from observed places, simulated
environments, to complete fabrications of place. All the artists deal differently
with space and illusion but the content of each is informed by some form of a lens
through which the artist looks. This lens may literally take on the form of a camera,
the minds eye, or may involve a technology or technique which makes evident a form
of mediation. No matter the method, the imagery and sense of space is undoubtedly
affected by the way each artist embodies the transformation through painting. Artists
included in this exhibit are Scott Anderson, David Linneweh, Christopher Schade, Jackie
Tileston, Tommy Fitzpatrick, William Betts, Russ Havard, Daniel Blagg, Seth Adelsberger
and Michael Francis.
Landscape Affected opens in the Haggerty Gallery located in the Art History Building of the Haggerty Arts Village on the University of Dallas campus.
