James Zamora
Special K


Special K by artist James Zamora is a contemporary realist painting made with acrylic on canvas representing a Special K cereal boxes in a grocery store. The painting measures 24 x 24 and is priced at $1,200. As a realist painter I am attracted to the technical complexities of everyday life. My paintings reflect all the characteristics from the visual relationships our eyes record to the subtleties of the subconscious.    EDUCATION Texas Woman’s University             Masters of Fine Art in painting, May 2015 University of North Texas             Bachelors of Fine Art with concentration in painting, August 2010 SOLO EXHIBITIONS Environmental Awareness, Exhibit by Aberson, Tulsa, OK, 2017 New Aisle Paintings, Galeria de la Rosa, Fort Worth, TX, 2016 interiors, Ro2 Art, Dallas, TX, 2016 Cupcakes, Ro2 Art at Fluellen Cupcakes, Dallas, TX, 2014 Reality Bites, Ro2 Art at Magnolia Theater, Dallas, TX, 2013 SELECTED GROUP EXHIBITIONS Dallas Art Fair, Fashion Industry Gallery, Dallas, TX, 2016 Solo, Ro2 Art Project Room, Dallas, TX, 2016 One, Art Room Gallery, Fort Worth, TX, 2016 Art For Advocacy, Featured Artist, Fashion Industry Gallery, Dallas, TX, 2015 Anything but Ordinary, Bryant St. Gallery, Palo Alto, CA, 2015 New Works, Mason Fine Art, Atlanta, GA, 2015 Chaos, Ro2 Art, Dallas, TX, 2015 Clear Reflections, Mason Fine Art, Atlanta, GA, 2015 Yeah, It's Salon Style, Ro2 Art, Dallas, TX, 2015 Pool Party, Anya Tish Gallery, Houston, TX, 2015 Dallas Art Fair, Fashion Industry Gallery, Dallas, TX, 2015 The John Weinkein Juried Student Exhibition, Denton, TX, 2015 For Real, Ro2 Art, Dallas, TX, 2015 Ten, Robert Lange Studios, Charleston, SC, 2015 Post-Presence, Pop Up Gallery, Dallas, TX, 2014 Domestic Familiarity, Anya Tish Gallery, Houston, TX, 2014 August 8th Opening, Mason Murer Fine Art, Atlanta, GA, 2014 CHAOS, Ro2 Art, Dallas, TX, 2014 Fresh Blood, Mason Murer Fine Art, Atlanta, GA, 2014 Hunting Art Prize Gala, Friedkin Companies Campus, Gulf States Toyota, Houston, TX, 2014 Dallas Art Fair, Fashion Industry Gallery, Dallas, TX, 2014 TWU Research Symposium, Presentation, Denton, TX, 2014 Joanie's Bridge Brunch, Benefit for Dallas Homeless Shelter, Dallas, TX, 2014 Ro2 Art at The Magnolia, Dallas, TX, 2014 Through a Different Lens, Selected Works, University of Dallas, Dallas, TX, 2014 Texas Women’s University Selected Works, 500X Gallery, Dallas, TX, 2014 Objectified, Ro2 Art Downtown, Dallas, TX, 2013 Art for Advocacy, Fashion Industry Gallery, Dallas, TX, 2013 Fall with the GAP, 010 Gallery at TWU, Denton, TX, 2013 Group Show, Ro2 Downtown Gallery, Dallas, TX, 2013 Group Show, Gallery at Midtown, Dallas, TX, 2012 Zamora Art Exhibition, Cross Timbers Gallery, Stephenville, TX, 2012 Small Works Show, Ro2 Art Gallery, Dallas, TX, 2012 4on4, Invitational Group Show, Rising Gallery, Dallas, TX 2012 Group Show, Oxide Gallery, Denton, TX, January 2011 Group Show, Oxide Gallery, Denton, TX, November 2010 Group Show, Oxide Gallery, Denton, TX, October 2010 Group Show, Oxide Gallery at Banter, Denton, TX, September 2010 BFA Exhibition, Cora Stafford Gallery, Denton, TX, August 2010 COLLECTIONS Texas Woman’s University, Dallas, TX, 2013 Fluellen Cupcakes, Dallas, TX, 2013 Jordan Winery, Healdsburg, CA, 2011 Big Red, Austin, TX, 2010 PUBLICATION New American Paintings, #126, West, 2016 Art Materials, Quarto Publications, 2016 CBS DFW, Fresh Faces of DFW: Contemporary New Artist, 2015 The English Room, Artist Spotlight, 2015 Mist Gallery, Artist Feature, 2015 Houston Press, Pool Party Review, 2015 Papercity, Splash, 2015 The Huffington Post, A Hyperrealism That Questions Reality, 2015 New American Paintings, #114, West, 2014 Painting in Acrylics, The Indispensable Guide, Quarto Publications, 2014 LECTURES “For Real” Art Talk, Ro2 Art, Dallas, TX 2015 TEACHING EXPERIENCE Adjunct, Painting I & II, Grayson County College, Denison, TX, 2016 Adjunct, Art Appreciation, Grayson County College, Denison, TX, 2016 Adjunct, Painting I, Grayson County College, Denison, TX, 2015 Adjunct, Painting II, Grayson County College, Denison, TX, 2015 Adjunct, Art Appreciation, Grayson County College, Denison, TX, 2015 Graduate Teaching Assistant, Intro to Painting, Texas Woman’s University, Denton, TX 2015 AWARDS Honorable Mention, Crushed Can, 30"x30", Still Life, Art-Competition., 2015 First Place, Cold Brew, 24"x24", Denton , TX 2015 Honorable Mention, Well Read, 60"x30", Still Life, Art-Competition, 2014 First Place, Wine Corks, 18"x18", Gustine, TX 2014 Best of Show, Wine Corks, 18"x18", Gustine, TX 2014 Hunting Art Prize Finalist, 2014 First Place, The Traveler, 20"x20", Gustine, TX 2011 Best of Show, The Traveler, 20"x20", Gustine,TX 2011 First Place, Three Old Ladies, 24”x18”, Gustine, TX 2009 Best of Show, Boy in Pokémon Shirt, 24”x18”, Gustine, TX 2009 MURALS Waymire Mural, Argyle, TX 2010 Old Post Office Museum Director Mural, Bryson, TX 2008 Mi Familia Mural, Graham, TX 2007, Graham, TX 2007
