Kim Cadmus Owens & Allison V. Smith
February 25 – March 30, 2013
Opening Reception: Friday, March 1, 5:30 – 8 PM
Dallas based artists, Kim Cadmus Owens and Allison V. Smith both portray vividly colored landscapes in their work, but each through her own unique style and media. Owens' paintings, drawings and prints reimagine the urban landscape in abstractions that convey a sense of dynamic movement in static settings. Smith's photographs capture quirky rural Texas vignettes in evocative compositions that express a subtly minimalist aesthetic. Both artists communicate the idea of personal experience of place in their distinctive imagery.
Kim Cadmus Owens lives in Dallas after having lived in New York, Baltimore and San Francisco. She received a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and her MFA from Towson University. She teaches undergraduate and graduate level drawing, digital media and painting classes at the University of Dallas where she is an Associate Professor of Art.
Allison V. Smith also lives in Dallas where she is a freelance photographer after working for many years as a staff photographer at newspapers such as the Dallas Morning News (1998-2004) and the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram (1996-1998). Her fine art photography has been exhibited throughout the United States and her editorial and commissioned work has appeared in publications such as Le Monde, the New York Times, Texas Monthly and Maine magazine.
