ArtsGoggle Registration Deadline Sept. 1

artsgogglefall2014

Saturday, October 8, 2016 | Noon to 10pm
 Join us as we celebrate the 14th anniversary of ArtsGoggle, 
the Near Southside’s most beloved community arts event.
What is ArtsGoggle?

Since its inception in 2003, ArtsGoggle has evolved into a popular festival of the arts in this eclectic neighborhood of historic elegance and urbanism. This free to the public, family-friendly event attracts a crowd as diverse as the neighborhood itself with live music, artistic displays of every kind, food, drink, and fun for everyone.

ArtsGoggle is unlike any event in Fort Worth, as residents from the nearby Fairmount, Mistletoe Heights, Berkeley Place, and Ryan Place neighborhoods are joined by medical district workers and visitors from throughout the region for a community arts festival focused in the Near Southside’s Park Place and Magnolia Villages. One of the event’s goals – along with celebrating art of all kinds – is to showcase the unique and memorable character of the Near Southside. Visitors are invited to park their cars and rediscover this revitalized urban neighborhood by foot or by bicycle, including Fort Worth Bike Sharing bikes.

ArtsGoggle prides itself in hosting a casual, approachable and vibrant environment to appreciate art and learn about the talents within our own community. For more than a decade, ArtsGoggle has been the launch pad for many artists showing their work for the first time. ArtsGoggle provides a supportive setting for both aspiring and professional visual artists, to display, sell and seek comment on their artwork.
Embracing all arts, the event also boasts an impressive program of performance art and music. The 2015 ArtsGoggle featured more than 100 bands, many of which have members who live or work in the Near Southside. The entertainment at ArtsGoggle is diverse and showcases music from a variety of cultures and styles. The event partners with arts organizations across Fort Worth to draw attention to their programs. In years past ArtsGoggle has hosted the Fort Worth Opera for pop-up concerts; showcased Ballet Folklorico de Azteca for a colorful dance performance; and hosted The Bucket List Jazz Band, a band dedicated to the lifelong dream of 90-year-old Jim Milam to resurrect Dixieland Jazz.

HOURS
Event hours are Noon to 10pm, a full day to offer patrons time to experience all that ArtsGoggle has to offer and will allow greater sales opportunities for our artists.

FOCUSED EVENT MAP
ArtsGoggle will focus on venues within the 2 mixed-use urban villages: Magnolia Village and Park Place Village. This condensed site map will provide a more manageable and enjoyable experience for our artists and patrons.

FEES
Each year as ArtsGoggle grows, so do the operating costs of the event. In order to produce an even higher quality event with the same great neighborhood experience, we have implemented a $40 registration fee for artists. The money collected provides vital funding to support improved communications, pre-event promotions, programs, signage and more.

AFFORDABLE FOR ARTISTS
The event is committed to keeping artist’s fees affordable by requiring a registration fee of only $40, with no others fees to participate. Each year as ArtsGoggle grows, so do the operating costs of the event. In order to produce an even higher quality event with the same great neighborhood experience, the money collected provides vital funding to support improved communications, pre-event promotions, programs, signage and more.

FREE TO THE PULIC
ArtsGoggle is free to the public, with no wristbands, tickets, admission costs. Unlike many popular for-profit events in Fort Worth, ArtsGoggle is produced by a not-for-profit community organization and thus has no need to produce revenue. Instead, the event is exclusively focused on creating an environment to appreciate and celebrate the arts. All funds raised for the event will be dedicated to producing a memorable and successful experience for artists, venues and patrons of all ages.

Near Southside, Inc., 1606 Mistletoe Blvd, Fort Worth, TX 76104
 

REGISTRATION IS OPEN

PARK PLACE VILLAGE:
Gallery at Goggle
This fall, the Near Southside will transform its streets, sidewalks and businesses into a one-day art experience like no other.  Businesses open their doors to show off the work of a wide array of local artists.  Park Place Avenue will host GALLERY at GOGGLE, featuring fine art and gallery-quality artists inside each of the participating businesses in Park Place Village.  Participating businesses range from a windows and doors retailer to restaurants, a coworking space to a music school.  In support of the Fort Worth arts community, these businesses clear their walls, rearrange furniture, and transform their traditional work environments into a gallery space dedicated to displaying the work of ArtsGoggle artists.  Venues receive no compensation for hosting artists; in fact, the Park Place Village businesses go to great expense to become a venue, with many opening during off-hours and making adjustments to their spaces to accommodate artists.  This unique partnership between business and artist is a distinctive feature of ArtsGoggle, and furthers the conversation about the importance of art in our everyday environments.  GALLERY at GOGGLE will also include an outdoor street festival for artists and stage with live music and performace art throughtout the festival.
Artists with previous gallery experience who wish to participate indoors or outdoors at Park Place Village are able to request this location on their ArtsGoggle Artist Application.  Once requested, we will work with Park Place Village business owners to identify a venue for your art to be exhibited. We hope you will join us for this special ArtsGoggle experience unique to Park Place Village!
MAGNOLIA VILLAGE: Taking it to the Street
In addition to Gallery at Goggle, ArtsGoggle hosts an outdoor street party spreading more than a mile across the Magnolia Village. The street festival closes Magnolia Avenue to car traffic from 8th Avenue to South Main Street and fills 16 blocks with more 650 visual artists booths and three stages with music and performance art of all varieties.

Artists wanting to participate outdoors at the Magnolia Village street party can request this location on their ArtsGoggle Artist Application, and can now even request a specific block. All artists will be allotted a 10’x10′ space, unless a larger space is requested. Artists must provide all their own supplies including tent, tables and displays.  However, we are able to provide a small amount of electricity to each booth to power booth lights and small electric device. Tents will line the center of Magnolia Avenue, placed side-by-side and back-to-back with power running between the tents for easy access. More details are provided online in the artist application.
All ArtsGoggle participation details are below.

The LCFA summer art gallery and art contest kicked off on Thursday July 14th.

During the opening reception co-founder Ewa Korzeniowska unveiled the works of local painter Dr. Chuck McCarter & sculptor Stephen Potter. Guests enjoyed hors d’ oeuvres, Go Texan wines and kid friendly fare. McCarter and Potter both spoke to the crowd of art enthusiasts and fans of the fine arts thanking the conservatory for supporting local artists and inspiring young creative talent in the local community.

Guests of the upcoming September 15th closing reception, as did guests enjoy at the opening celebration, will hear musical performances by students of both fine arts schools and pianist Eva Brandys who is also co-founder of LCFA and founder of sister school—Park Cities School of Music.

The Summer Art Gallery is open to the public through September 15th during open hours of LCFA.

Walt Davis, signature member and past president of the Southwestern Watercolor Society, began painting in watercolor over thirty years ago.  He has studied with such notable artists as Faith Helen Foust, Bud Biggs, Doug Walton, Louise Cadillac, Carole Barnes, Frank Webb, Mark Mehaffey, Richard Stephens, and bird artist John P. O’Neil.

Davis has taught watercolor, figure drawing, and plein air sketching at Eastfield Community College, Amarillo College, Panhandle Art Center, San Angelo Museum of Art, and in his studio in Commerce.  He has conducted demonstrations and workshops in Amarillo, Brownsville, Dallas, San Angelo and nine other Texas cities.

His work is carried by the Davis and Blevins Gallery in St. Jo, Texas, and his paintings hang in private collections in Washington State, Montana, Florida, Colorado, New Mexico, and cities throughout Texas.

His painting, Katy-did, Katy-didn’t, won the Margery Soroka Memorial Award in the 2013 American Watercolor Society competition in New York and was included in the Society’s traveling show.  Two other insect portraits won awards in 2014; one in the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies in Phoenix, Arizona, and the other in the Southwestern Watercolor Society show in Dallas.  With the acceptance of the painting Make My Day (see above) in the 2015 annual exhibition of the American Watercolor Society, Davis became a signature member of that prestigious organization.

TEXAS PROFESSIONAL ARTISTS:

ENTER ORIGINAL ARTWORK INTO A YEAR ON THE PLAZA ART COMPETITION BY AUG. 25

Winning work displayed on art wall in Dallas Arts District for one year, no entry fees 

DALLAS – Professional artists across Texas are invited to enter A Year on the Plaza Art Competition by Thursday, Aug. 25 at 3:00 p.m. for an exceptional exhibition opportunity for the winning artist.

Presented by The Catholic Foundation, the unique competition is accepting original work, searching for a piece of art to adorn a 28-foot-long by 9-foot-wide public art wall in the Dallas Arts District for one year. Submissions must measure 28 inches by 9 and 2/3 inches, and the winning work will be digitally enlarged to cover the wall. The winning artist receives a $2,500 stipend and honorable mentions receive $250 each.

“A Year on the Plaza Art Competition presents a unique opportunity for talented individuals in Texas to express themselves artistically and showcase their work in the Dallas Arts District,” said J. Matthew Kramer, president and CEO of The Catholic Foundation.

Submissions must be appropriate for the location of the Plaza on the Cathedral grounds but do not require a religious theme. There are no entry fees. The Request for Proposal is available at catholicfoundation.com.

Once the winning piece is selected by a panel of highly respected members of the local arts community, it will be unveiled during a public dedication ceremony in October 2016.

“Words can’t describe how exciting this is. If you are thinking about entering, go for it! What do you have to lose? As long as you enjoy art, then it’s worth it,” said 2015 winning artist Stuart Hausmann.
