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.

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.
