WAAS Gallery invites you to explore the foundational spark that ignites a million minds. The riveting phenomenon of simple ink on paper stirring light and darkness to iconize profound concepts transcending mere words to promote public consciousness, provoke social revolution, and inspire what we have come to recognize as modern digital media.
WAAS Gallery proudly invites you to PRINT THIS, our celebration of Photography, Graphic Design, and Typography, featuring the work of legendary Graphic Designer, Milton Glaser.
Milton Glaser is among the most celebrated graphic designers in the United States. He has had the distinction of one-man-shows at the Museum of Modern Art and the Georges Pompidou Center. In 2009, he was the first graphic designer to receive the National Medal of the Arts award. He was selected for lifetime achievement awards from the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum (2004) and the Fulbright Association (2011). As a Fulbright scholar, Glaser studied with the painter, Giorgio Morandi in Bologna, and is an articulate spokesman for the ethical practice of design. He co-founded the revolutionary Push Pin Studios in 1954 and New York Magazine with Clay Felker in 1968. In 1974, he opened Milton Glaser, Inc. where he continues to produce a prolific amount of work in many fields of design to this day.
As part of PRINT THIS, WAAS Gallery is also proud to announce these exhibiting artists:
Alex formally began his career as a fine art photographer in 2006. He is a member of Dallas Professional Photographers' Association (DPPA). In 2009, he won Best New Artist in the Dallas Observer, and Best Fine Art Photography in Dallas/Ft. Worth by Fashion Group International in 2012.
Jeremy’s photography is edgy, glossy and beautiful, moving his subjects out of familiar surroundings and into new, sometimes radically unexpected scenes, causing the viewer to look closer, deeper, to gather each compelling nuance.
Jonathan is a commercial photographer, based in Dallas, Texas, photographing subjects from all over the world. He enjoys collaborating with other creative artists, believing that the best work is produced through teamwork. His subjects include portraits, fashion photography, airborne BMX riders and Lady Ga Ga concert goers.
Harold is a photographer, videographer and film maker, covering various subjects from individual portraits, house construction instruction, all the way to the stark realities of being homeless in Dallas, Texas. His work explores each topic with the unflinching focus of a true documentarian.
Alberto’s work meditates on many aspects of dreams, the possible forms of alternate dimensions, and notions of other realities. He is fascinated by humanity's proclivity to fear, and uses his work to explore the disorienting space between reason and reality.
Scogin’s photography injects unexpected shapes and colors into familiar scenes, creating sometimes unsettling, always provocative imagery.
Curtis’s work draws from multiple perspectives to create interesting scenes that play with the mind and the eyes. Using Light as his main subject, Curtis takes viewers deeper into each compelling image.
Adam’s photography often utilizes 70s television-reminiscent composition and hues to challenge the viewer with unexpected, fascinating and humorous images imparting intriguing narratives through single scenes.
Lisa is a New York City-based visual artist creating photographs, video installations, and single-channel videos, focusing on the peculiar interactions between human constructs and the “natural” world. Lisa’s work has been exhibited internationally in venues including the Walker Art Center, Antwerp’s Museum of Contemporary Art, Madrid’s Reina Sofia National Museum of Art, and the Thierry Goldberg Projects and Memonta Art Gallery in New York.
Brian’s work includes monotone and multicolored screen-prints, graphics and typography, including subjects recently featured in his ALL THAT GLITTERS exhibition at The Magnolia Gallery. His gallery, The Public Trust, is located in East Dallas.
ROSS VON ROSENBURG
Ross is a painter, graphic designer, writer, and photographer. His work focuses on texture and the human figure to explore each subject through the combination of traditional art and contemporary ideas. He encourages his audience to reach out and look closer to see what his work says to them.
Karla’s work creates a harmonious dichotomy of sorts, intended to challenge the viewer to think critically about the subject matter and its impact on them. By approaching dark subjects from a sugary perspective, her work visually communicates her perspective and world-view about the subject at hand.
