The Bath House Cultural Center and exhibition curator, Jose Vargas, invite visual artists to submit entries for the 24th Annual El Corazón art exhibition.
Since 1993, Mr. Vargas has organized the El Corazón art exhibition in Dallas. This popular exhibition is a beloved annual tradition at the Bath House Cultural Center that gives artists an opportunity to create various artistic interpretations of the human heart. This passionate and eclectic exhibition features a variety of ideas, styles, and concepts inspired by the heart (El Corazón), an important and universal symbol in art.
SUGGESTED THEME: Hearts and Music

Listening to music can be good for the heart. When you hear music, what feelings do you experience? Well, put those feelings onto a canvas (or other media). Think of this exhibition as El Corazón with a musical slant! Create a piece of art based on a favorite song, or a particular style of music, or musician. Or, perhaps, you can do a combination of a heart and a musical instrument. When it comes to combining the symbol of the heart and the concept of music, the possibilities are limitless.

About the Curator: Leon Robertson is a self-taught artist that works with primarily pen
and ink illustration. He has explored mixed media using found objects to create a series
titled, The Junkyard Birds. Because so much of his art is inspired by the use of language,
stories often unfold with his art. It is the reason why he prefers to work in an open-series
format. His work has been exhibited in local shows and galleries. Several of the
characters from his ARF & Soul Dog series were published in the book, 1000 Dog
Portraits: From the People Who Love Them. Leon’s passion for art, design and all things
creative was demonstrated in nearly two decades of working in the fashion and home
luxury retail markets.

About the Curator: Leon Robertson is a self-taught artist that works with primarily pen and ink illustration. He has explored mixed media using found objects to create a series titled, The Junkyard Birds. Because so much of his art is inspired by the use of language, stories often unfold with his art. It is the reason why he prefers to work in an open-series format. His work has been exhibited in local shows and galleries. Several of the characters from his ARF & Soul Dog series were published in the book, 1000 Dog Portraits: From the People Who Love Them. Leon’s passion for art, design and all things creative was demonstrated in nearly two decades of working in the fashion and home luxury retail markets.

THANK ART: A Pop Up Show About Artistic Gratitude call for artists

THANK ART: A Pop Up Show About Artistic Gratitude

Webpage for the show is at http://www.thankart.tumblr.com. The deadline for entering is November 1, 2017. The exhibition runs from November 6 to November 12 2017 with a reception on November 10, 2017.

Art has been an experience that has encompassed many meanings for me. Inspiration, escape, freedom, chance and dreams. I’m thankful for art for its diverse nature and how its significance has adapted to me as I’ve progressed through life.

Why do you THANK ART?

I’m inviting artists to share their interpretation of the theme THANK ART for an upcoming fall pop up show. Artists with work that meditates on the appreciation of the creative process in its various forms and guises are encouraged to submit. The expression of artistic gratitude in the work does not have to be explicit and can be defined in loose terms.

For instance, thankfulness for an artwork can be expressed because of its emotional experience or thankfulness can be expressed because the process of making a work offered some relief. There are no limits to your depiction of gratitude.

The exhibition will be on view at Dr. Jeckyll’s Beer Lab on 2420 West Park Row, Pantego, TX 76013.

If you’re interested in exhibiting please send three images of your work along with a short artist’s statement that describes how your relates to the theme of THANK ART TO Kim at submitarttokim@gmail.com.

Art in the Metroplex Grand Finale

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

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. Watch for details about a new show at this time next year in its place.

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.

ABOUT THE JUROR: Judy Tedford Deaton, Chief Curator and Director of Exhibitions and Collections, has been curating exhibitions and overseeing the art and history collections at The Grace Museum since 2006.

She is an author, art historian, frequent guest speaker, art consultant, art juror and panelist at museums and conferences such as American Alliance of Museums (AAM), Texas Association of Museums (TAM), Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas (CADD), Mountain Plains Museum Association (MPMA), and the Center for the Advancement and Study of Early Texas Art (CASETA). Deaton is currently a member for the CASETA board of directors and served on the 2015 Arts Create Grant Panel for the Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA) and was recently featured in the National Endowment for the Humanities, Humanities publication. She is also the recipient of CASETA awards for outstanding publications and exhibitions in 2014, 2015 and 2016 and the MPMA 2009 award for exhibition art publications.

ABOUT US: Located at 1300 Gendy Street, the FWCAC is part of the most architecturally significant museum districts in the United States. The striking modern Herbert Bayer building (with a later O’Neil Ford addition) opened to the public in 1954 as home to one of the most prestigious and oldest collecting organizations in the state of Texas, the Modern Museum of Fort Worth. When, in 2002, the Modern moved down the street, the Fort Worth Community Arts Center opened. The building has exhibited world class art and supported the performing arts for more than half a century. The Arts Council manages the FWCAC, provides leadership and funding to local arts organizations through our competitive Grants Program and administers the Fort Worth Public Art program.

Call for Artists – Peavy Landmark Tree Rebirth Competition – Friends of the Bath House Cultural Center

The Friends of the Bath House Cultural Center are sponsoring the Peavy Landmark Tree Rebirth Competition, an art exhibition and live auction that will take place during the annual Bath House Cultural Center Art MartNovember 17-19, 2017.

This project is in response to a recent incident where a landmark Dallas Park and Recreation pecan tree was vandalized. Twelve sections of the tree limbs (about 12” by 18” in size) were rescued. To celebrate the rebirth of the tree, the Friends of the Bath House would like to do a request for qualifications to select artists to reanimate each log into works of art.

The artwork will be on display during the Art Mart. The auction will take place on Sunday, November 19, 2017. Proceeds from the auction benefit the Friends of the Bath House Cultural Center, a not for profit organization that supports the center’s visual and performing art programs throughout the year.

Applications are due on Monday, September 18, 2017, by midnight.

To download an application and to get more details about this project, including information regarding prizes, deadlines, photographs of the landmark tree, and submission requirements, visit the website of the Friends of the Bath House Cultural Center at https://www.friendsofthebathhouse.org/competitions/
