Downtown Symbolism Comes Alive at Artist vs Architect

On Nov.14, Dallas’ One Arts Plaza was a stunning collage of innovative art and conversational architecture that united artists and attendees from all over the metroplex and beyond. Participating sponsors included Fiat, Veev, Matthew Shelley Photography and Patron Magazine to name a few.

The featured artists and architects were paired off by a panel of experts in the two fields and creatively “dueled it out” via canvases, sculptures, oil paintings, photography and other avenues of superb and  virtuous expression.

Upon review of all submissions, the  12  pairs of artists and architects were given two themes and were to  create a collaborative piece and an individual piece of work. A third artistic piece was optional for all contestants.

Throughout the evening, guests had the opportunity and pleasure of bidding via silent auction on all of the created works. Additionally a select few pieces, were placed in a live auction for bid during the evening. All proceeds from the auction were donated to a chosen charity beneficiary.

After hours of awe-inspiring artwork, mingling,  libations and high energy music, topped off with the beautiful host and charity enthusiast Leeanne Locken as MC for the evening, the voting was declared over and the winning pairs were announced. 

Congratulations to the 2013 AvA Winner architect Gardner Vass of Perkins+Will. This piece is called Grove Avenue NO.22 —

What intrigued us so much about all the collaborations of the contest was how well the artists worked together. Was everyone able to work well with their partners? Were they able to find common ground on their creations? Winners Ali Golzad and Meredith Quigley were surely able to.

“From the start when we met it was very clear that our understanding of our roles as individuals living on this planet was very close. which made it easy for us to decide early on
what type of project we wanted to work on,” said Golzad. “With this piece we just wanted to tell the story of many people who live in the shadows of the big corporations and government, working hard every day towards their dreams.”

Congratulations were soon due to the  2013 AvA Winner architect Gardner Vass of Perkins+Will and the collaborative winners artist Ali Golzad & architect Meredith Quigley from OMNIPLAN. Special recognition went to Hai Nguyen for being pour artist favorite of the night.

At this point, I also came up with the name of my piece, “Dallas 12 & 4”. These numbers refer back to the shadow-lines at certain times of the day in the 3-D model, 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. I thought at these moments, that the shadow-lines were the most interesting as they created new relationships between building planes and also surfaced as new objects within my diagram. In order to create a hierarchy within the model, I used color to better distinguish the two times of day,” explained Amador Saucedo of his 3-D piece.

We wanted to incorporate both structural elements and emotional elements in a way that would delightfully surprise people… a piece that looked nothing like an architectural design, nor a piece of photographic art. Sean & I both wanted it to be a whimsical, fun, yet aesthetically pleasing and functional design, proving the truth that “Less Is More,”

said photographer Carolyn Collins about her collab piece with artist Sean O’Brien.

New Dallas resident Andrew Cortez,

“was fascinated by the sprawling urban fabric and the vast network of interconnected roads that weave throughout the metro. This was the story I wanted to tell with my piece. I wanted to abstractly share a journey through the city, experiencing the vibrant life and energy within it, and the spontaneous moments that occur when a new piece of it is discovered.”

Cortez’s piece Anxious Awakening reminds us of the abstract vivid-ness of Deep Ellum, a sector of Dallas that the artist has yet to explore, but coincidentally has heard a lot about.

“What inspires my art and design, specifically for 4000, was to see how far you can push the formal and physical limits of common items by adding a simple “connector.” In this case the item was 4000 binder clips and the “connector” was 70 pieces of thin piano wire,” informed Sean O’Brien.

“Most of the time when people see it they don’t realize that it’s binder clips…and when they do, the reaction is mixed. Some people are confused, and others laugh but I think everyone is intrigued.
Personally as a designer, I like to incorporate humor into my work when I can. This happened to be the perfect storm of poetic form and irony, ” he added.

The  silent and live auction raised over $10K for Family Compass (formerly known as Child Abuse Prevention Center.)

Timbaland celebrated his recently announced divorce last night in Paris with Jay Z and Lenny Kravitz. They partied at Club 79 after Jays concert at Bercy Arena. The three guys popped 30 bottles of Ace of Spades, and their tab of over $27,000 was comped. Timb mingled with the ladies, while the other guys posed for pics. Timbaland’s wife filed for divorce this week and asked for the rapper to pay child support on two kids — one he fathered, one he didn’t.

Miguel Parties in Dallas!

Last Sunday Nov. 10, Journalicious! spotted Miguel getting his party on at Monroe’s in Dallas. He pleasured the ladies by singing not one, but two songs! In the first clip he sings Adorn to the party promoters request. In the second video, there must have been some kind of technical malfunction because Miguel has to sing another song “How Many Drinks” and doesn’t seem too happy about interrupting his partying with the ladies surrounding him. At first he’s not really even into it, but soon he realizes he’s surrounded by fans and really gets into the song. lol
