In her art, Madeline Irvine concentrates on the beauty of the natural world. Irvine’s large salt crystal installations in Buffer Zones focus on the giant kelp forests beneath the ocean surface and the waves they help moderate. Along with coral reefs, kelp and mangrove are essential buffers between the enormity and power of the ocean and the essential fragility of the coast. Yet, the nature is endangered on many levels caused by global warming. Through her installation, Irvine hopes to raise awareness for environmental issues and contribute to the preservation of the world.
Buffer Zones by Madeline Irvine will be on view at Fort Worth Community Arts Center July 6 through July 27, 2018. The opening reception is July 6, 2018; 6-9pm.

MARCH FEATURED ARTIST
LAYNE JOHNSON | “CHASING THE LIGHT” SOLO SHOW
March brings landscape artist Layne Johnson to the gallery with his solo show and demonstration. Dutch Art Gallery will host a Meet the Artist reception during our March First Thursday Event as well as a demonstration by the artist that Saturday. You can get to know Layne a little better by reading our Artist Spotlight article, but be sure to come by the gallery to meet him and see his work in person, including new pieces. Solo Show on view through March 31st.
A very focused and driven artist, Layne set his sights on making art his career early in life and squarely hit the bullseye. You’ll find him painting on nearly a daily basis though he does “try to take weekends off”. Inspired by the painters of the Hudson River School, Layne’s work is described as a blend of Luminism, Classical Realism with the added touch of American Impressionism. Having transitioned from an earlier hyper-realistic style, his looser painting technique is still quite detailed and depicts light in the landscape skillfully. His primary goal is to capture the beauty and serenity of a particular location to create a “sense of place” and an emotional connection to it. He wants the viewer to be reminded to slow down, take a breath and appreciate the beauty that’s right in front of them.
MEET THE ARTIST RECEPTION | LAYNE JOHNSON
Thursday, March 1st 6-8pm

In 2006, photographer Chris Ireland started to take photos of the ordinary daily minutia surrounding his mother, father, and brother who still resided in the same home he grew up in on 8867 Edgehill Road. Initially, observing his family’s routine felt like a comforting exercise in nostalgia, as the artist had struggled to define himself the first few years away from home. In 2016, Ireland returned home more often not long after an accident that left his mother permanently brain damaged. The images in this series are moments in time, separated by 10 years that show the daily patterns and rhythms of life that do not necessarily change, but adapt to alterations in the family dynamic.
Ordinary Time by Chris Ireland will open to public at Fort Worth Community Arts Center on April 6, 2018, through April 28, 2018. Opening reception will be on April 6, 2018; 6-9pm.

Robertus van der Wege is a storyteller who loves using a variety of materials to help in the storytelling process — Wood, stone, metal, and ceramic all lend varying permanence; textures, colors, and differing nuances to each story. The stories he likes to tell are stories of the human condition. In addition to that, he likes borrowing from these sources to create objects that become metaphors for today’s humanity and challenges.
Wege sees himself as an object maker whose work attempts to offer a new perspective on environment, art, history, and religion. The fact that some of these materials may be in found objects, or created as new forms, also lends to the story. Wege sought to create sculpture that has been engaging for young and old alike, and strives to have the viewer become more engaged with his work after their initial visual encounter. It is particularly rewarding for him when that experience is shared by more than one person, such as a parent with a child, or an experience among friends. This is one of the reasons that his work is often kinetic and invites human interaction. As Wege believes that many of the solutions to today’s problems exist within our collective human story.
Centrifugal Force by Robertus van der Wege will be on view March 2 – March 28, 2018. The closing reception will be March 24, 2018; 6-9 pm during our Spring Gallery Night at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center.

Steve was raised in Dallas, Texas where he resides and graduated with BFA from SMU. He worked as a graphic designer and art director for over 30 years. Now retired, his artistic pursuits are inspired by his love for the natural beauty of the Hill Country.

MAIN ST. FORT WORTH ARTS FESTIVAL BRINGING THE “ART AND SOUL” OF TEXAS TO DOWNTOWN FORT WORTH FOR 33RD YEAR ON APRIL 19-22
Texas’ largest arts festival will bring together thousands in attendance to experience the finest in arts, music, food and culture
FORT WORTH, TEXAS (February 12, 2018) — MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival (MAIN ST.) will hit the streets of Downtown Fort Worth on April 19-22, 2018, for its 33rd year, bringing together tens of thousands of people to celebrate the sights, sounds, and tastes of the highest-ranking arts festival in Texas. Spanning more than 27 city blocks from the Tarrant County Courthouse to Sundance Square Plaza to the Fort Worth Convention Center, MAIN ST. will feature 223 juried artists from across the U.S., chart-topping entertainers, authentic Texas cuisine, and arts-and-crafts activities for the whole family.
Ranked by the ArtFairSourceBook.com as #4 fine art event in the U.S., MAIN ST. has gained both local and national recognition year-after-year. The annual, free event is a three-time recipient of the “Grand Pinnacle” award and back-to-back winner of the “Zenith” award from the International Festivals and Events Association over the past several years. Last year, MAIN ST. received Fort Worth Magazine’s Best of Fort Worth “Readers’ Choice – Festival” award, and was listed as one of InStyle’s “under-the-radar arts festivals you need to start planning for now.”
“MAIN ST. is one of Fort Worth’s most anticipated and well-attended events,” said Becky Renfro Borbolla, chairman of the Festivals and Events Committee for Downtown Fort Worth Initiatives, Inc. “It brings together people from all walks of life to our award-winning Downtown business district to celebrate incredible art and music in an urban setting.”
1,273 artists applied to exhibit this year, and only 223 were selected. Last year’s Best of Show-winner Marvin Blackmore and Best Emerging Artist-winner Matt Tumlinson will be returning, along with People’s Choice-winner Tai Taeoalii and other festival favorites. Approximately $4.6 million worth of art is expected to be sold across 15 mediums, including ceramics, jewelry, mixed-media, printmaking, digital, fiber, leather, painting, sculpture, drawing pastels, glass, metalwork, wood and photography. Over 25 aspiring local artists will also be featured on 3rd and 4th Streets, sponsored by Frost, with a focus on Texas art. For more information, visit “Fine Art Showcase.”
This year’s musical lineup features hundreds of performers across a variety of genres, ranging from country, rock ‘n’ roll, jazz, soul and R&B. Festivalgoers can enjoy musical performances on the UTA Main Stage and Sundance Square Stage, along with plenty of street performances throughout MAIN ST.’s “magnificent mile.” Headliners include folk music group Jamestown Revival, contemporary swing band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Latin Jazz ensemble Pacific Mambo Orchestra, Americana group Shane Smith & The Saints, and many more. For more information, visit “Music on MAIN.”
MAIN ST. attracts many of the region’s top culinary artists to the streets of Downtown, and features a wide variety of food and beverages, including crawfish, turkey legs, bratwurst, gourmet hamburgers, funnel cakes, frozen treats and more. Festivalgoers can also enjoy local, national and international craft beers in the “Craft Brew Pavilion” or wines by-the-glass in the “Wine Experience” tasting tent. For more information, visit “Culinary Arts.”
Also returning for 2018 is “MAIN ST. Creates!,” presented by Wells Fargo, an outdoor arts-and-crafts studio for children and families featuring balloon design, face paint, mural walls, jewelry, sand art, and more. Opening at 10 a.m. daily at the north end of the festival, “MAIN ST. Creates!” is also home to the Tarrant County College’s “Young People’s Art Fair,” showcasing art from more than 200 emerging, young artists. For more information, visit “MAIN ST. Creates!.”
MAIN ST. couldn’t take place without the tremendous support and dedication of more than 1,200 volunteers, sponsored by Frost. Volunteers assist with all festival operations, from hospitality to merchandise sales, and receive perks including free t-shirts, food and beverages, merchandise discounts, and more. Those interested in being a part of this year’s festival can get involved by simply signing up online.
The new, enhanced Friends of the Festival program is another great way to get behind-the-scenes and participate in an upgraded MAIN ST. experience, while supporting the efforts to maintain the John F. Kennedy Tribute sculpture in General Worth Square. The Friends of the Festival program provides businesses with networking opportunities and exposure through logo placements, dinners, VIP Pavilion access, special receptions with invited artists, and more.
MAIN ST. is annually produced by Downtown Fort Worth Initiatives, Inc., and is free to the public. The official hashtag for 2018 is #MainSt2018. Festival hours for 2018 are:
