An artful and culturally-rich event!
A nation rich in diversity, Indonesia is a reflection of the pluralism that marks the Asia-Pacific region. Over the centuries, various civilizations, races, faiths and cultures have found a home in the archipelago. Today, it is a nation of a quarter of a billion people, dispersed among no less than 17,508 islands.
The arts and culture of Indonesia will come together this fall at the Artists Showplace Gallery in Dallas. The works of 39 artists from the artists' community of Koperjati in East Java will be on exhibit for a limited time, exclusively at the gallery. East Java is a center of multiculturalism, and as a result, cultures such as Surabayan, Chinese, Pandalungan, Pesisiran, Arabic, and Mataraman have influenced the artistic processes of those who joined this community. The artists believe that in this global era, local cultures must be preserved in the international arena and that art plays a critical role in defining cultural identity.
Join us for complimentary wine, hors d'oeuvres, and the chance to win fabulous door prizes!
It's a great opportunity to enjoy artwork by local, national and international artists while you mingle with the community.
Indonesian Artists will be here to paint live.
The Artists Showplace Gallery invites you to cool off with our

Plein Air Southwest Salon is a juried plein air competition, exhibition and sale sponsored by the Outdoor Painters Society and showcased each April in Dallas, Texas. The Salon features plein air paintings from the "best of the best" painters working today.
Plein Air Southwest Salon has earned the reputation as one of the premier events of Spring. The Outdoor Painters Society sponsors the event to promote an appreciation for the process of painting “en plein air” which is French for “in open air”. Most works are completed in a single painting session, painted outdoors on location and are characterized by the bold use of color, design and the freshness of paint application.
The Artists Showplace Gallery is pleased to spotlight three talented area artists on the rise. The exhibit runs from Friday, March 10 through Thursday, March 30. A reception to meet the artists will be held on Saturday, March 11, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Complimentary wine and appetizers will be served.

Artists' Showplace Gallery welcomes the Outdoor Painters Society's Ted Clemens and Randy Saffle from April 30 through May 26. A reception to meet the artists will be held on Saturday, April 30, from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The reception will feature live artist demonstrations as well as stunning jewelry by returning Santa Fe jewelry artist Mitzi, who will also be at the gallery on Friday, April 29.
Native Texan Randy Saffle is an award-winning oil painter whose rural upbringing is a major influence on his work. He views his paintings as those of a storyteller: "These places, these objects, each contain their own stories and invite the viewer to step into them, digging up their own memories."
Although not a native Texan, Ted Clemens is most inspired by the people and landscapes of his adopted state. His spirituality is evident in his philosophy about art: "Doesn't matter how well you draw or paint. Creating isn't just pretty pictures. It's heart and soul."
