Danville Chadbourne and John Adelman

Nicole Longnecker Gallery starts the new year with dual exhibitions featuring new work by Danville Chadbourne and from John Adelman. The exhibits both feature established Texas artists who have long been admired by collectors.

 

“We are excited to start 2018 showing new work from two wonderful Texas artists,” said gallery owner Nicole Longnecker. “Danville will show some two-dimensional pieces which utilize his unique aesthetic to great effect. John Adelman’s latest drawings continue to build on his established process-driven body of work. I believe our collectors will find pleasant surprises in both exhibits.”

 

DANVILLE CHADBOURNE: Danville Chadbourne was born in Bryan, Texas in 1949. He received a BFA in 1971 from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas and an MFA in 1973 from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. After teaching studio art and art history at the college level for 17 years at various institutions, Chadbourne quit teaching 1989 to devote himself full-time to his art. He has exhibited extensively at both state and national levels, including over 100 one-person exhibitions. His work is included in numerous private and public collections, and was featured in the November 2010 issue of Sculpture Magazine, and in the February 2010 and January 2006 issues of Ceramics Monthly.

Primarily a sculptor in clay and wood, Chadbourne works in a range of materials and in both two- and three-dimensional formats. Over the years he has created a complex body of work unified by a primal iconography and artifact-like quality emerging from a very personal and consistent formal, aesthetic and philosophical sense.

He has lived and worked in San Antonio, Texas since 1979.

JOHN ADELMAN: John Adelman received an M.F.A. in Drawing and Painting from the University of North Texas, Denton, Texas (2006) and a B.F.A. in Drawing, Painting, and Printmaking from The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio (1992).

 

Adelman follows rules that dominate his mark-making, his exploration of subject matter, and even his tools - which are almost exclusively limited to black, blue, and white gel ink pens. These works are accumulative and compulsive, and anything but austere. Intricate and labor-intensive; they also portray how far he is willing to go to follow the rules and achieve order. He often deploys the dictionary and its definitions as source material, yet also adheres to the rigors of chance, outlining tens of thousands of objects as they fall on his page. With his use of unconventional materials and his obsessive method, Adelman's work could easily be overly simplified, if it weren't for the understated beauty in the results.

 

He currently lives and works in Houston, Texas.
