January and February 2021: JRB Art at The Elms will be exhibiting “Past, Present, and Future,” a show which features a selection of artists who have shown in the Gallery in the past 20 years, artists who currently show with the Gallery, as well as artists who will be exhibiting with the Gallery in the future. These artists will be shown “progressively,” i.e. every Tuesday a different artist will be introduced into the exhibition. The Gallery will be open to the public Tuesday through Saturday from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm, masks are required.

New Works at the Gallery

July 4, 2020 - Joy Reed Belt

Represented at international art fairs such as Art Miami’s Scope and Aqua Fairs, Art Basel, Red Dot London, and Hong Kong Contemporary, Michele Mikesell exhibits her dense, tactile paintings throughout the United States and across Europe and Asia. Using strippers, chisels, razor blades and solvents, Mikesell treats paint as color and matter, killing the idealized beauty of an expected image in order to revive it and create something arresting. Through this active participation with the surface of a painting, she generates a contradiction between worn paint and pristine image or surface. Mikesell received her MFA from the University of Oklahoma. She lives and works in South Dallas and Spain.

Please note that the gallery will be closed today, July 4th, for the holiday. We will reopen on Tuesday, July 7th. Have a fun, safe weekend!
