Sunset at Chinati, K. Yoland Speaks and A Week of Services at Entrance

16 Feb 2013

Opening this Sunday February 17th, ENTRANCE will host a week of services provided, in the gallery, by artist Alex Schmidt. For one week only, Schmidt will create an installation of drawings and furniture and offer yoga classes (for kids and adults), therapy sessions, a reading hour, and stick-and-poke tattoos. Appointments are encouraged and a detailed schedule is available at the gallery. The exhibition begins with a celebration this Sunday (2/17) at 8 pm. Email Alex at [email protected] for questions or appointments. All services open to all and offered by donation at ENTRANCE 107 S Dean St. Marfa, Texas.

If you’re looking for good times in Marfa this Saturday night, you’ll be hard-pressed to top last night’s Gary P. Nunn party — featuring a decadent cupcake buffet and a dance floor of whirling cowgirl dervishes — but you can’t go wrong with Sunset at Chinati — an opportunity for an “evening viewing of Donald Judd’s 100 untitled works in mill aluminum and 15 untitled works in concrete Saturday, February 16 from 5:30 – 7:00 PM.” Free for locals and members, $10 for everybody else.

And before that, artist-in-residence K. Yoland will be giving a talk at 4pm to mark the final night of Then There Was Land, her weeklong exhibition at Marfa Contemporary. For more information, visit Marfa Contemporary.

Michael Roch at Entrance

1 Feb 2013

Entrance, the “24/7 art space” operated in part by Ballroom’s Exhibition & Programs Coordinator Rosa McElheny has something for your Marfa weekend …

ENTRANCE announces “Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,” a solo exhibition by Marfa artist Michael Roch. The show features new paintings that explore Roch’s interest in surface, craft and childlike subject matter. Rabbits, bears, penguins and abstract marks playfully inhabit these canvases amid the flat, exacting environment of joint compound, latex paint, color and form.

“Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens” opens with a reception from 6 – 8 pm Friday, February 1. The show remains on view 24 hours a day through February 15. ENTRANCE is located at 107 S. Dean Street.
