Members on the Road Dallas

Join us as we visit the Dallas Museum of Art to see the exhibition Ida O’Keeffe: Escaping Georgia’s Shadow. Ida Ten Eyck O’Keeffe was recognized as a gifted artist during her life, but her efforts were overshadowed by those of her famous older sister. This exhibition showcases for the first time approximately fifty works by Ida O’Keeffe including paintings, watercolors, prints and drawings. Lunch follows. We then drive to Valley House Gallery and enjoy a private tour.

Fee: $100 includes transportation, lunch, and all tour fees and gratuities. Space is limited. For reservations, contact Mary Lynn Sloane at 817.989.5063 or marylynn.sloane@cartermuseum.org.

Experts Talk on the Carter: Lauren Cross & Vicki Meek

How has the diversity of America been reflected throughout American art history and today? Dive into the topic with experts Lauren Cross and Vicki Meek to learn more about how the current art scene is representing both race and gender, or at times the lack of representation. Experts Talk on the Carter (etc.) is a new lecture series where thought leaders in various fields turn their eye to works in our collection, helping us see art in new ways through the lens of their own work and passions.

The first etc. lecture this spring features Lauren Cross, local artist and professor in the Interdisciplinary Art and Design Studies program at the University of North Texas. Cross is the founder of the Fort Worth-based arts organization WoCA Projects (Women of Color in the Arts), which highlights the works of women artists of color through exhibitions, film screenings, artist talks and lectures, and community arts education.

Cross will be joined by Vicki Meek, a local artist, independent curator, and cultural criticism writer for Dallas Weekly. With over forty years of arts administrative experience, including working as a senior program administrator for a state arts agency, a local arts agency, and running a nonprofit visual arts center, Meek retired in 2016 as the Manager of the South Dallas Cultural Center in Dallas, a center focused on the African-American community.

Seating is limited; reservations are recommended. Registration for this program opens February 1.
