5910 Cedar Springs Road , Dallas, TX
Start date: Friday, February 20, 2009
End Date: Friday, April 10, 2009
Trich, a 21-year-old native of the Dallas area, is an extraordinary contemporary artist who debuted in October 2007 with his sold-out show “I Do Not Exist.” “Eric Trich: omg!” will feature paintings and sculptures created under his mentor, Iranian-American artist Siros. Trich’s work is included in the collections of numerous prominent art patrons, including Barbara Hunt Crow, Margaret Crow and Priscilla Beshears, all of Dallas, as well as collectors in Iran, Dubai and Japan. Works for “Eric Trich: omg!” are on loan from the collections of Bill and Heather Esping, Brad Johnson, Mark Murphy, R. Keith Nordin, H.I.H. Princess Sarvenaz Pahlavi, and Jeff and Jan Rich, as well as the private collection of SGA Enterprises and a private collection in London, England. Trich’s second solo show, “American Lucky Coins,” held in July 2008, was also a sellout. Trich studied at the Art institute of Dallas and Southern Methodist University’s Meadows School of the Arts. “We are thrilled and honored to present the work of this up-and-coming young talent,” said Dr. Tim Seelig, Director of Art for Peace & Justice. “The arts express and define human nature and are also important tools in affecting social change. Eric’s work expresses what his generation is feeling while challenging all of us to look at our world through new eyes.”
Art for Peace & Justice (Art4PJ), based in Dallas, Texas, is a program of the non-profit Hope for Peace & Justice (www.h4pj.org), which is equipping progressive people of faith to be champions for peace and justice. Art4PJ utilizes the arts to educate, enlighten and inspire people and thereby create a cultural shift toward peace and justice. Enlisting artists across the country to become ambassadors and educators, prophets and priests for social transformation, Art4PJ uses music, drama, literature, dance and the visual arts to challenge people to work together to create beauty rather than destruction, unity rather than divisions and cooperation rather than conflict.
Also open all day Sunday.
