HADAR SOBOL:  Kairos (the supreme moment)   

August 28 – October 2, 2010

Valley House Gallery is pleased to present our first exhibition of Israel born Hadar Sobol. In a union of thread and drawing, Sobol traces her journey of identity as an artist and new mother in a new country.   

“Kairos” refers to the qualitative dimension of time. It describes a moment of undetermined time during which something special happens. Sobol’s work draws its inspiration from the narrative of a woman’s inner voyage. During this voyage, as she confronts the changes in her life, she finds that in addition to experiencing pain, she is provided with the opportunity to re-create herself.   

Opening Reception: 
Saturday, August 28, 6:00 to 8:30 p.m.

Artist Talk: 
Saturday, September 11, 11:00 a.m.

12 Major Paintings by Early Dallas Artist OTIS DOZIER (1904-1987)

August 30 – October 2, 2010

The paintings will not be available to preview before the exhibition opens at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 28   

After August 28, the paintings can be seen online at
http://www.valleyhouse.com   

“Otis Dozier painted a certain time and place into existence.  Ostensibly, his subject was the flora and fauna of the American Southwest, but his true subject was the universality of the rhythms of the natural world.  His mantra was “Look for the universal in the regional.”  What a contrast with the current cliche “global art,” which, in essence, means “follow fashion and money!” 

Otis’ “universal” was beyond the ego, beyond the subjective.  And, although someday his works, like all landscape painting, will become images of a vanished world, a time no one remembers, what a treasure they are for us!  Could any of us see the exquisite design of Southwestern flora or the geometry of native rock formations echoed in fair weather clouds if not for his paintings?  His tools were a gift for drawing, an infallible color sense, and an insatiable curiosity.”
