Art in the Metroplex Grand Finale entry deadline Sept. 15

FORT WORTH COMMUNITY ARTS CENTER IS PROUD TO PRESENT: Art in the Metroplex Grand Finale

EXHIBITION DATES: October 6 – October 25, 2017 RECEPTION: Friday, October 6, 2017 6pm-9pm

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION – September 15, 2017

https://fortworthcommunityartscenter.submittable.com/submit/91730/art-in-the-metroplex-grand-finale

Art in the Metroplex was first held in 1983. At its root, the exhibit was the brainchild of two people who wanted to work together. Beth Lea Clardy was an established Fort Worth artist, a 1940 graduate of the TCU art program and one of a quartet of concerned citizens who in 1978 founded the non-profit Committee for an Artists’ Center. Ronald Watson was an artist and educator on the faculty of the TCU Department of Art and Art History. He assumed the chairmanship of the TCU art department in 1982 with a goal of “seeking greater collaboration between the university and Fort Worth artists and organizations. Through its proud 33 year history, Art in the Metroplex has exhibited the work of thousands of local artists but much like all great things, it too must come to an end. Ann Ekstrom, daughter of Clardy and renowned artist has decided to alter the show’s format as we move into the 21st century making this Art in the Metroplex the finale.

CALL TO ARTISTS: Open call to all artists in the DFW Metroplex and surrounding areas – Tarrant, Dallas, Collin, Cooke, Denton, Ellis, Grayson, Hill, Hood, Hunt, Jack, Johnson, Kaufmann, Navarro, Palo Pinto, Parker, Rockwall, Somervell and Wise. Open to artists over the age of 18, all disciplines with no theme. All medias including oils, acrylics, pastels, watercolors, prints, drawings, mixed media, sculpture, video, installation, photography, and digital art. Art in the Metroplex Grand Finale will occur in our premier, 3000 square foot, Front Gallery at The Arts Center. All artwork must be original and must not infringe upon any copyright or the rights of any person.

PRIZES:

·          Grand Prize Winner: Solo Show in our Main Gallery at Art7, a storefront gallery located on Crockett St. in Fort Worth’s bustling 7th Street area.

·          Runners Up: A group exhibition occurring simultaneously as the solo show in the Back section of the Art7 Gallery.

1st Annual Keller Art Walk call for artists

Arts take center stage in new Keller festival

A new family-friendly festival celebrating the arts is coming to Old Town Keller thanks to a partnership between the city’s Public Arts Board and the local nonprofit Keller Public Arts Society.

Keller, TX – The first annual Keller Art Walk, scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 14 from 3 to 8 pm, will honor the artists selected for the city’s new rotating art program and celebrate the recently completed improvements in Old Town Keller.

Location: Old Town Keller West

Earlier this year, the Arts Board initiated the inaugural phase of a rotating art-on-loan program to fill the sculpture pads added during the city’s recent updates to Old Town Keller West. The pads are located along the strolling promenade that runs north-south adjacent to the eclectic restaurants and small businesses in the area.

For Phase I of the program, the Arts Board selected five sculptures for a two-year exhibit; in 2018, they will select and install six additional pieces, also for a two-year exhibit. The staggered phases will bring new pieces to Old Town each year, providing a dynamic and engaging attraction that will help draw interest and foot traffic to the area.

The Keller Art Walk will be a community event with a unique, strolling atmosphere aimed at showcasing the arts in Keller. Patrons will have the opportunity to meet the artists whose work is on display in Old Town and watch plein-aire, or outdoor, artists create captivating paintings along the promenade. Student musicians from Keller ISD and a variety of local vendors and professional entertainers will also be featured throughout the event.

Sponsorships and vendor spots are still available. Applications can be found at www.cityofkeller.com/artwalk. For more information, call 817-743-4000 or email publicarts@cityofkeller.com.

About KPAS: Keller Public Arts Society is a 501(c)3 corporation dedicated to supporting public art in Keller.  Our mission is to provide a platform for on-going support and participation in the preservation and growth of the local artistic community through collaboration with city government and civic organizations, as well as local businesses, clubs and individuals interested in supporting the arts.  Membership is free.

Abstract Acrylic Workshop with Jan Sitts Dec. 6-9

Jan’s experience and enthusiasm create an atmosphere of fun and spontaneity inspiring new directions and discovery through innovative combinations of design and materials. By combining aggressive textures and unusual mediums with various “raw” materials in the abstract painting we get surprising results. The layering method yields a magnetism that is particular to mixed media. Many techniques, materials, compositions and above all emotion, play off each other in creating the work. Part of the adventure is not knowing where you are going until you get there! You will become thrilled with possibility as you journey through this process. You will learn to let go of painting habits and gain the knowledge of layering textures, colors and feelings while executing shapes utilizing a structure of positive and negative space.

All of the paints used will be waterbased.

Jan is an internationally recognized art instructor and juror, and recently published an art book, TEXTURE COLOR FEELING. All of her workshops are different, so if you have taken one from her it will not be the same!

When: Wednesday-Saturday, December 6-9, 2017. Workshop begins at 9:30 am each day and goes until 4pm. There will be an hour break for lunch.

Ages: 16+

Where: Highland Village Art House
6100 Long Prairie Rd #800
Flower Mound, TX 75028

Richard Hickam: Expressions of Color opening Sept. 16

Bivins Gallery is pleased to present Richard Hickam: Expressions of Color from September 16 through October 21, 2017.

A celebrated painter for over forty years, Richard Hickam’s vibrant works have been exhibited in museums across the United States. Transitioning from photorealistic paintings to large-scale abstracts to figurative abstractions, Hickam’s style, technique, and influences are constantly evolving.  Whether it be the quirky and convention-breaking features of his human subjects, or his vivid jewel-toned abstractions, Hickam continues to explore the bold manipulation of color and brushstroke as the main subjects of his paintings. The topic of numerous publications, Hickam’s rich palette and accomplishments as a master of characterization have brought him recognition as a historically significant American painter.

An opening reception will be held at Bivins Gallery on September 16, 2017 from 5 to 8 p.m.

“Strong Color” – Avery Kelly & Steve Uriegas exhibit in Keller

Avery Kelly and Steve Uriegas share their talents as palette knife painters in the August public art show at Keller Town Hall. The Keller Public Arts program is pleased to highlight their art for this month long event from August 2nd through August 30th. The larger than average paintings will take your breath away with the bold color and individual subjects. 

“Miss Kelly’s work centers on the beauty and energy of the natural world. Specializing in oil painting and relief printmaking, she strives to convey a sense of joy and mystery through her work.”

“My current style, I coined Angular Expressionism, came by way of trial and error. The most important element of the technique is the use of pallet knives only, no brushes. It’s a process that took me a couple of years to develop and at this point I’m very comfortable in it. It’s an application that is systemized and choreographed. With this framework in place, I’m provided the liberty to search deeper for new ideas and concepts. It provides a structure I can work within using the canvas as my page and colors as my words. The reason I paint is because it gives me a way to express myself without the absoluteness of words.”

Join Avery and Steve for an Evening with the Artists, Thursday, August 10th from 7 to 9 pm at Keller Town Hall. Enjoy the music of the Southlake Community Band on the back patio, share refreshments and exchange in conversation around the art.

For more information please contact publicarts@cityofkeller.com or call 817-743-4000. Visit our website at www.cityofkeller.com/publicarts.

Forged Paint: Carefully Crafted – Lee Hill at Gallery 414

FORGED PAINT: CAREFULLY CRAFTED

THE PAINTINGS OF LEE HILL

 

Fort Worth, Texas – Local artist and architect Lee Hill will exhibit a body of work that includes paintings from the past three years at Gallery 414 from Saturday, September 9, to Saturday October 8th, 2017.  Opening reception will coincide with the Fort Worth Art Dealers Association’s Fall Gallery night from 12 pm to 9pm September 9th.  Working in mostly acrylic mediums, Hill’s paintings are made up of large scale drafted abstractions layered over bold color fields generated by various painting techniques including weathering, spray painting, pouring and staining.

Hill’s work will take over the entire gallery space at Gallery 414 in a solo show Titled “Forged Paint: Carefully Crafted” which alludes to the definition of the word “Forged” as a way to create work through intense focus or great effort.  On exhibit will be recent paintings that point to a new direction in the use of color as a result of his recent studio research and visits to New York City.

Hill has described himself as an abstract painter firmly rooted within the neo-modernist movement and influenced by the universal processes involved in designing and building manmade structures across the natural and urban landscapes. His work is defined by both sharp and soft lines that extend from edge to edge on the canvas resulting in a language of mark making that symbolically alludes to man’s interaction with his environment in both historical and contemporary contexts.

The artist has acknowledged his roots in abstract hardedge painting particularly in the work of various contemporary working artists such Carmen Herrera, Carrie Moyer, Cecil Touchon and Caio Fonseca. Another influence is within the Manifesto of Canadian artist Andre Durand who writes that, “The Neo-Modern Manifesto sets out a programme for a revitalized approach to art founded on art history, discipline, and philosophy. Neo-Modernism sees art as an expression of the most sublime spiritual principles and interpretations of the universe and man’s existence, in line with the belief that the reality we live in is but a mirror of a deeper one that can only be reached through inspiration and imagination.”

In addition to his work as a painter, Hill is also a longtime Associate Principal at Hahnfeld Hoffer Stanford Architects in Fort Worth, Texas. He has been the lead project architect on well-known local landmarks such as the TCU Brown Lupton University Union (BLUU), Arborlawn United Methodist Church, Temple Beth-el and project designer for the ongoing conversion of the historic Fort Worth Masonic Home School into the new home campus for ACH Child and Family Services.

Summer Art Festival opening August 11 at The Artists Showplace Gallery

The Artists Showplace Gallery is celebrating the season with three hot contemporary artists: Randy Jacobs, Kathy Metcalf and Christina Yielding, and book sculptor Keith Kriegel.

The exhibit runs from Friday, August 11 through Thursday, August 31. A reception to meet the artists and watch live demonstrations will be held on Friday, August 11, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Complimentary wine and appetizers will be served.

Shortly after 9/11, self-taught artist Randy Jacobs turned to painting as an expression of his overwhelming emotions. He is best known for his multiple layers of texture. His mediums range from acrylic to mixed media, including ink, watercolor and iridescence.

Book sculptor Keith Kriegel, a graduate of the Baylor College of Dentistry, loves the attention to detail that book carving requires. Using a surgical blade, he enjoys discovering what is hidden behind each page.

A native of Dallas, Kathy Metcalf says that at the turn of the 21st century, she found herself in fervent need of self-expression. Completely self-taught, she views painting as a “catharsis for the soul” that gives her a sense of peace and joy. Her work is bold in color and texture.

Christina Yielding’s innovative techniques for creating her mixed-media paintings include using a variety of scrapers rather than brushes. Painting solely on wood, Christina builds a custom frame around every dynamic piece. Her work has been featured in solo and group shows throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

For more information, call the gallery at 972-233-1223 or visit www.theartistsshowplace.com.
