Additional Information

PERSONAL STATEMENT
Lorraine Tady contributes to the Arts and Humanities and ATEC programs through Painting, Drawing, Design and Printmaking classes. Her classes share knowledge in the traditions of art making, contemporary art, and experimental design. Students are guided and encouraged to find knowledge through research, exploration and making. Whether pursuing careers in art or simply finding enrichment, Tady motivates students to develop an awareness of their own artistic voice and the context of their investigations.

Tady’s interests in interdisciplinary study are evident in her UT Dallas Visual Art Gallery curatorial projects. 2016 Drawing Quote Unquote explored the diversity of drawing; 2014 Collective Bargaining (co-curated with Diane Durant) on local artist collectives; 2012 Sonic Architectonic exploring sound in art; 2010 Color System, Color Strategy on the various ways color theories manifest; 2010 Catalyst regarding individual artist’s visions; and 2008 Alchemy or Change on the subtext and importance of art-making processes and material choices.

Her own work visualizes intuitive architectural mapping and spaces, while playing games with lines, shapes, parts and process through a pseudo conceptual engineering inquiry. Working in serials such as the L.E.D. Series and the Octagon Vibration Series, Tady’s art has been influenced by excursions to northern New Mexico; Cape Cod, Massachusetts; New York, NY; Paris, France; London and Kent, England; and Westfjords and Reykjavik, Iceland.

Her current position at UT Dallas follows full-time visiting positions at Southern Methodist University (2000-2003), Baylor University, Waco, TX (Spring 2004), and University of Dallas, Irving, TX (2005-2006). Following a fellowship from Yale University, Tady attended the Yale Norfolk Summer School of Music and Art (1988), and received an MFA at Southern Methodist University, Dallas, TX (1991).

Her dedication to research and practice as an artist is evident in her professional exhibition activity (1987 to the present) both in Texas and in a variety of national and international art spaces. Tady has been represented by the Barry Whistler Gallery, Dallas, TX, since 1994, and received the 1993 Dallas Museum of Art Kimbrough Award, the 2010 New York Ruth and Harold Chenven Foundation Award, and recently the 2015 Otis and Velma Dozier Travel Grant (to Iceland) from the Dallas Museum of Art. She was also nominated for the Joan Mitchell Foundation 2006 Painters and Sculptors Grant (NYC), the 2007 Arthouse Texas Prize (Jones Center, Contemporary Art for Texas), and the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Grant (2010). Her work was one of 33 artists included in the Texas Abstract: Modern + Contemporary publication by Fresco Books in 2015.
