"A Stake in the Ground:

The Case for DMA Transparency and Its Future" Participant Biographies
Chapman Kelley
There are few painters fortunate enough to be collected by the DeKoonings and Hirshhorns among thousands of collections; or to have won major national recognition from Edward Hopper and Jacques Lipchitz and to have been invited to lecture at Harvards Graduate School of Design and Yales School of Art and Architecture and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, about his important Wildower Works. There stands out as conspicuous among a number of awards and collections to the extent that in 1965 Whos Who In The South and Southwest awarded Mr. Kelley its Second Biennial Citation in Art, the same year that Dr. Michael DeBakey received it in medicine and U.S. Senator J. William Fulbright in government. Mr. Kelleys award was sandwiched between awards to artists Jasper Johns and Gene Davis before the program was discontinued. Born in San Antonio, Texas 1932, Chapman Kelleys rst New York exhibition was resoundingly received in 1963 (sold out and featured with color illustration in Life Magazine, September 20, 1963). Since the middle fties, Kelley has participated in many of this countrys major national group exhibitions.

Arthur Koch
Giant logs turned inside out, limbs contorted into uid arches, stumps sliced and polished into sensuous wedges. When you walk in and confront the mini-forest of shapes, you want to run your ngers over them, wrap your sts around the built-in handles, rock the carefully balanced serpentine shapes on their foundations. When art makes you yearn for that kind of interaction, it's working." Christina Rees, Dallas Observer, 1998

Jeanne Koch
Having earned her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, Jeanne Koch currently resides in Dallas, Texas. Koch has shown her work at different galleries in the area over the years, such as the Adams-Middleton Gallery on Maple Avenue. Her latest representation is the Christie Gallery, also based in Dallas, Texas. She and her husband Arthur have been highly innovative art instructors on a college level. Together they formulated a highly vanguard program where students were exposed to a work ethic, while in Taos, New Mexico in association with Southern Methodist University. This work ethic spanning more than an eight hour day resulted in productivity from the students that was far greater than anyone anticipated. Currently Ms. Koch has donated her artwork to a fund raising event known as the Art Heist, where donors upon paying a set fee to participate, are permitted to select one of hundreds of professional artworks to take home.
