Haley-Henman proudly announces Jill Nonnemacher’s open studio installation of new sculptures and paintings, titled Subject to Interpretation. For Nonnemacher, painting is the unifying process used with different media: paper, canvas, burlap, string, wire, plaster and clay. This variety affects the range of expressions. Nonnemacher’s interest in the dynamic movement of form compels her to search, investigate, and reveal possible transformations of a structure and how it expresses the emotionality of self in more abstract and expressionistic directions.
Nonnemacher’s first solo exhibition at Haley-Henman in 2016, titled Modeling the Subconscious presented an interactional performance piece, ”Experience the Transcendent”. She continues to develop her interest in Art experiences that encourage social interaction. With these new works Nonnemacher is much more eclectic in her expression, which invites different interpretations. Her intuitive process brings forth a spectrum of psychological states that create an interactive synergy to the collective whole, where a painting on paper talks with a clay sculpture. This types of interaction is indeed part of many installations, yet for Nonnemacher, she uses relationships of space, form and color, not only by individual works, but also by their placement among others. In other words, the studio installation is a conscious, sculptural work to increase the viewer’s social participation in the interpretation between and among the artworks.
The recipient of many awards and held in private collections, Nonnemacher recently received the Third Place Award in Sculpture at the 2018 Regional Juried Exhibition, “Plano 125”.

Haley-Henman announces their collaboration with Art on Henderson for Joshua West’s exhibition titled, Of Intuition And Blindness. The artist will be in attendance for a reception on Saturday, April 6 from 6-8 pm. A conversation and a closing reception will be additional opportunities to meet and talk with the artist.
Joshua West says, “The clash of current events in my paintings brings together historic and futuristic references in a sort of orchestral madness. They are visual shorthand for broader topics that intersect my mind. Taking inspiration from the way dreams force our unconscious to confront our deepest fears, each painting weaves a seamless tapestry of visual references, styles and symbols.
Joshua West’s paintings in this exhibition are big and bold. Vibrant color and theatricality entice the viewer to delve into their own intuitive connections to explore changing social landscapes. Joshua West invites “viewers to enter each painting for an open-ended encounter with the beautiful, the emotional and the mysterious.
Art on Henderson is located at 1802 McMillan, Dallas Texas 75206 on the corner of Henderson next to Houndstooth Coffee. For further information, please call/text Haley-Henman at 214-532-3225. ###
