Sarah Ball reviewed in Dallas Morning News

Dallas Morning News   |   May 10, 2017   |   by Lee Cullum

"Sarah Ball is not the person you would pick out of a gallery crowd as the one who has  painted pictures that are so monumental (though miniature),  so original (though derived from photographs), so candid (though highly formalized) and so heartbreaking (though deceptively calm).  She is a reticent, gifted introvert who has no taste for self-promotion." 

Sarah Ball in Patron Magazine

"Close inspection of the oil-on-board paintings reveals another astonishing piece of Ball’s aesthetic: the surfaces are immaculately brushstroke-free, her subjects seemingly emerging from a world away, as if conjured through some arcane alchemy."

"Ball’s signature picture framing combined with her use of naturalism, complete with glazing and other techniques, invigorates and modernizes these lost people, identifying the viewer with them as historical figures, as well as foregrounding the opening of an invitation to consider the plight of millions of people like them, displaced and vulnerable in the contemporary world."

Heyd Fontenot's 'KULT KLASSIC' reviewed in Glasstire

Glasstire   |   Nov 15, 2016   |   by Christina Rees

"When I walked into Heyd Fontenot’s explosively celebratory, ultra-queer vaudeville of an
at Conduit a couple of weeks ago, I felt about five massive feelings, all at once. The first, though, was glee, in the way that shooting the middle finger at someone or something can feel so defiantly gleeful. It was clear that Fontenot, a longtime Texas favorite, is done being polite or even moderately accommodating. Good."
