lindamood4JUROR: Patsy Lindamood

Learning from from nationally and internationally recognized pastelists and wildlife artists, Patsy has emerged with a style uniquely her own, marked by strong, colorful, yet infinitely detailed compositions in a representational style.  She has become a nationally award winning artist in her own right.

Her work derives from research and observation of creatures in their environments, in the wild whenever possible. Trips to state and national parks have provided great adventure and abundant inspiration. Wildlife also regularly visit her property in Huntsville, and it is not unusual to pass deer or roadrunners on her weekday routes.

Working in pastel, graphite, colored pencil, and watercolor or watercolor pencil, Lindamood’s paintings are life-size, bold with color, rich with texture, and bursting with presence. She frequently paints on cradled artist boards, Pastelboard or Mylar.

For more about Patsy and her art, see her website at http://www.lindamoodfineart.com.

Fall 2017 ArtsGoggle – REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!

fallartsgoggle

Saturday, October 21, 2017 | Noon to 10pm
Join us as we celebrate the 15th 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 Magnolia Village. 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 2016 ArtsGoggle featured more than 90 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 a street festival and venues within the Magnolia Urban Village. This condensed site map will provide a more manageable and enjoyable experience for our artists and patrons.
AFFORDABLE FOR ARTISTS
The event is committed to keeping artist’s fees affordable by requiring a registration fee of only $45, 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.
EVENT PRODUCER
ArtsGoggle is presented by Near Southside, Inc., the non-profit redevelopment organization working to revitalize this important urban neighborhood, in partnership with our sister organization Historic Southside, Inc.  The event has regularly drawn crowds of 7,000-10,000 and in 2016 experienced incredible growth with a crowd estimated at 40,000 attendees filling the streets with visitors of all ages.  The scene is a wonderfully pleasant testament to the community spirit that fills the Near Southside.
ArtsGoggle is an expansion of Near Southside Inc.’s efforts to promote the Near Southside and build the community fabric essential to our continued development.  Since our founding in 1995, NSI has led development and promotional initiatives that have successfully transformed the Near Southside into one of the region’s most distinctive and vibrant urban districts.  Signs of NSI’s 20-year revitalization effort are evident throughout the district, perhaps most apparent along Magnolia Avenue, S. Main Street and Park Place Avenue, home to the city’s most eclectic selection of locally-owned restaurants and pubs.
Tax Information
Historic Southside, Inc., managed by Near Southside, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  Sponsorship contributions made to Historic Southside, Inc. are deductible as charitable donations.  W-9 forms will be provided at your request.

MAGNOLIA VILLAGE: Taking it to the Street
ArtsGoggle is 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 18 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 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.
STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS
 
ARTISTS
Artists are defined as visual artists working in studio arts. Painters, photographers, woodworkers, weavers, printmakers, sculptors, potters, jewelers, illustrators and artists of all mediums may now register online! The visual artist application fee is $45 and all money collected is used towards event production expenses. Check out our new, easy, step-by-step registration process.
 

TO GET STARTED Go to www.nearsouthsidefw.org

and create a user account if you have not already done so in the past.  For example, if you registered for last year’s ArtsGoggle or this year’s Friday on the Green market you will already have a username and password. When you login you’ll be able to access a customized user portal where you can view the ArtsGoggle application and all future artist opportunities. You can access the login link for your account from any page on the website always located at the upper right hand corner and you’ll be taken to your user portal.

STEP 1 In the portal, click on the grey “Artist” tab and create an Artist Profile.  If you participated in last year’s ArtsGoggle you will already have an artist profile so please make sure to carefully review last year’s Artist Profile for accuracy! You must have an artist profile before being able to access an artist application.
Artist profiles are used to keep a database of artist information on file with Near Southside, Inc. to notify you of future artist opportunities. When applicable, we will share your information with our business partners seeking artists for special projects such as murals, art exhibitions, or privately commissioned works. Please make sure to provide accurate information and high quality work sample photos, as the information in your artist profile is also used to evaluate the quality of your work for inclusion in ArtsGoggle. The profile should be easy to complete, but if you begin working on it and need to stop you are now able to SAVE YOUR PROGRESS and return at a later date to complete your work.
STEP 2 Purchase the ArtsGoggle Artist Application for $45 using our safe online payment system.
STEP 3 Fill out your ArtsGoggle Artist Application. Now that you have purchased the application it will always be accessible to you from your user portal. Like your artist profile, you’ll be able to return to your ArtsGoggle Artist Application at your convenience to finalize the details of your ArtsGoggle participation. This includes the ability to request a specific block placement and being placed near another participating artist. You can also return to update your work sample photo, artist statement and other information printed in the official ArtsGoggle Program. ALL APPLICATION INFORMATION MUST BE SUBMITTED PRIOR TO SEPTEMBER 4, 2017.  Artists who do not complete their application prior to September 4will forfeit their position at ArtsGoggle with no refund.

On Creativity…
On June 29th from 6:30 – 8pm CAC will be hosting its fifthunseenamerica show featuring the work of eight very talented 3rd 4th and 5th graders from nearby Bayles Elementary and we hope you will join us to view their work and welcome them to CAC! A culminating exhibit opened at the students’ school last month, and after it shows at CAC will travel throughout the community to such venues as galleries, libraries and businesses impacting hundreds of people who view the exhibition.
Unseenamerica is an 8-week curriculum-based program, taught by a professional photographer, teaches digital photography at nearby Bayles Elementary, which is CAC’s namesake school.  Bayles began as a one-room school house in 1981 near what is now Buckner International.  CAC was built during the WPA in 1935 and Bayles operated here until the mid-50s. The current DISD Bayles Elementary School opened in 1956 about a mile from CAC where it is currently. Significantly, Bayles is the oldest school operating under the same name in Dallas County.
Modeled on a program that originated in New York under Bread and
 Roses, the cultural arm of SEIU Local 1199, the largest labor union in the country, unseenamericawas originally designed to serve low-wage workers, day labors, homeless citizens and others often ignored in our society. When CAC brought the program to Dallas in 2008 we were the first to adapt the program for children.
 
Unseenamerica is far from a fun enrichment program for disadvantaged kids. It is designed to instill a stronger sense of self and community through artistic practice. Unseenamerica does not simply teach photography skills, but also creates community, enables the practice of democracy and promotes social justice.
