January Exhibition

Please join us this Saturday, January 7, 2017 from 6:00-9:00 PM for the opening reception of Windows of Opportunity. At the Martin Place 1799 N Graves Street McKinney, TX 75069. All ages are welcome. Brian Magnuson's handcrafted black and white silver gelatin prints allow the viewer to reflect on the human condition through his stunning images of window. As a new year is upon us, it is a time to move forward with a positive light and realize that each of us are fragile and possibly broken like these windows. We each have our own story to tell and so do the windows. Come and share in this opportunity to be encouraged and uplifted.

Wayne H. Lambert, the artist behind Almost Art, has been creating 3-dimensional art pieces & unusual paintings for more than 30 years. Wayne was co-owner of Showcrafters Inc., a Dallas-based theatrical design and fabrication company for more than 25 years. After each Showcrafters’ ‘gig’, there was usually a large quantity of unusual items and leftover scenery that could never be used again. So, he began crafting his unique pieces from surplus items and the old scenery.

 

A theatrical lighting/scenic designer by trade, Wayne continues to use found objects and ‘leftovers’ in his work. Three of his pieces were selected for the Greater Denton Arts Council’s Open Call Show in the Spring of 2016, including Faded Glory, currently on display at The Martin Place. His painting titled Stingray and the 3-D piece Pirate & Pig were selected as two of the top 10 winners of the Texas Biggest Ten for Art competition. These pieces will be on display July 20 through September 4 at the Katy Contemporary Arts Museum in Katy, Texas.

 

When not traveling across the country as a lighting designer or babysitting his two grandchildren Jack & Whittlei, Wayne can be found at his studio in East Texas where he continues to create his unique pieces from found objects and repurposed paintings.
