Located in the swiftly growing Dallas Design District in Dallas, TX, Samuel Lynne Galleries has a reputation both locally and nationally as a stable for contemporary art in Dallas. Samuel Lynne Galleries is additionally known for fostering artists in the Reflectionist school.

The Reflectionist school is based on a system of artistic thought that abstractly emphasizes the mirroring of energy and human life in the universe. This burgeoning school of artistic thought attempts to express and physically manifest these positive — and otherwise abstract or intangible — forces, which artist JD Miller (the founder of the Reflectionist School) refers to as the "three dimensional envelope of life" through his 3D oil paintings. Miller's production of organic forms and natural tendency toward the capturing of light is the hallmark of this sculptural oil technique.

Just as Impressionism developed around a core group of artists in late 19th century Paris, Reflectionism is beginning to foster a following around a core group of artists in Dallas. Characterized by thin, visible, and textured strokes, Impressionism manifested the cultural changes in Paris, as the city began to emerge as the epicenter for art, music, and ethos for Parisians like Monet, Renoir, and Cezanne as well as expats like Morisot. Similarly, Dallas is growing rapidly as a cultural Mecca in the heartland of the U.S., transforming rapidly in terms of demographics, economics, and investment in the arts.

Reflectionism, in turn, is growing throughout the country and the world around key groups of artists mentored by JD Miller, the school’s founder. This is characterized by the use of bold colors and the thick, sculptural application of oil paint (3D Oil), directly mirroring the times and place JD Miller and the other Reflectionists live.

In addition to Reflectionist artists JD Miller, Lea Fisher, and Philip J. Romano, Samuel Lynne Galleries is pleased to now represent the premier internationally acclaimed artist, Tom Holland. Holland’s wall-mounted and freestanding epoxy on aluminium paintings have been included in such museums as the Guggenheim, the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the San Francisco Museum of Art. Holland’s pairing of rough, unfinished metalworking and vibrant dripping colors of epoxy paint contrast for a one of a kind sensory experience.

Samuel Lynne Galleries is pleased to be able to showcase its accomplished and esteemed artists to the Hamptons community as the official fine art sponsor of the Hampton Classic Horse Show, bringing together the finest of contemporary art and the finest of equestrian tradition.
