SemosMauldin & Canvas Dallas present "The Show Must Go On" artist reception
SemosMauldin Bespoke Art Consultancy will present "The Show Must Go On," their curation of Canvas Hotel Dallas. Formerly the NYLO Dallas South Side, Canvas has been reinvented in January 2019 as an art-centric destination in an eclectic South Dallas neighborhood undergoing a renaissance of culture, shopping, art, and music.
Designed by Studio 11 Design, the refreshed environs will include a substantial collection of inspiring contemporary works curated by MK Semos and Jen Mauldin. Partners in the hospitality-focused art consultancy, the duo are known for their facility in balancing aesthetics and scale, as well as their expertise in selecting works from both international and local artists that add meaning to each space.
For Canvas, SemosMauldin has curated well-known figures in the Dallas art community and beyond to reflect what is unique about both the city and the site itself. Permanent works include Haylee Ryan’s story-based work Female Bust with Floral Headpiece, a Sister Studio collaboration inspired by the natural beauty of a floral artist’s uncommon arrangements, as well as Hugo G. Urrutia’s textural work Grand Paradiso, oil lacquer on carved Baltic birch. The event will feature 20 rotating works from other local artists, including Kyle Steed, Riley Holloway, Danny Joe Rose III, Kartel, Michele Mikesell, Courtney Miles, Sara Cardona, Lori Fox, Derek Nemunaitis, Ann Chisholm, and Jeremy Biggers.
The exhibit will be on view through April 30.
