Kincaid exhibition closes this weekend -don't miss it!


TED KINCAID exhibition installation

Last chance to view
- Ted Kincaid's new celestial photographs inspired by Walt Whitman's 'Song of Myself', I Do Not Want The Constellations Any Nearer / L.A. Skies will be on view until Saturday, February 13.

And if you are looking for Valentines weekend plans, consider an art themed afternoon and visit Marty Walker Gallery to see Kincaid's critically acclaimed work, and then swing by The Dallas Museum of Art and see the exhibit Performance/Art with work by gallery artists Frances Bagley & Tom Orr, among others. Also on display at The Dallas Museum of Art, part of their permanent collection, is a fantastic photograph by Ted Kincaid.

"If Picasso was right, that “art is a lie,” then photography is a whopper, and Kincaid, a Dallas-based artist acclaimed for nuanced, digital manipulation, can stretch the truth like nobody’s business."
"... in Constellation’s ten-part grid of cloud portraits, Kincaid offers us a perspective like one we might have if lying on a hilltop, looking straight up into a partly cloudy sky. Not only are we enabled to stare long at these meteorological wisps, which in real time as fleeting and liquid as reflections on water, but we may also realize, while considering their circular, rondo format, that it is the same way the brain outlines our every view.
