  • FOCUS GALLERY ONE: Demeter’s Faithful Iason
  • Reception for the Artist
    September 10, 2011 6 – 9PM
    September 10 – October 22, 2011

    A childhood in the deep rural South left its mark on Jim Burton. The love and loathe relationship that he feels with the images and ideas from his past allows him to confront and re-imagine that culture and the sentimentality with which it is usually addressed.

    To accomplish these ideas in his work, Burton uses the conceit of his adoptive brother as a Southern Iason, who slavishly serves his personal goddess Demeter through his devotion to his crops. Demeter is the goddess of the harvest and the seasons. Iasion’s mythical tools are trucks and tractors and CB radios. Before he is slain by the vengeful hand of Zeus (for his hubris in loving Demeter), we are given a view of his life, his toils, his longings.

  • FOCUS GALLERY TWO: Reflecting the Ride
  • Reception for the Artist
    September 10, 2011 6 – 9PM
    September 10 – October 22, 2011

    The images in this collection of paintings by Rick Mullings are the result of inspiration and memories from motorcycle rides taken through the heart of the American West which reflect the innocence of the raw beauty of these landscapes as found by earlier travelers in the 18th and 19th centuries.

    Among those states where these sojourns took place are New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, and South Dakota. The light and time of day reflected in the clouds and skies, tell of storms come or gone, as well as the rising or setting of the sun on eternal mountains and plains.

    Focus Gallery Exhibitions are presented by the Exhibition Advisory Panel of the Fort Worth Community Arts Center. The mission of the EAP is to exhibit contemporary art with a focus on regional artists in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana.

  • OTHER GALLERIES: Preservation is the Art of the City
  • Reception
    September 10, 2011 6 – 9PM
    September 9 – 24, 2011

    The ninth annual Preservation is the Art of the City® art show and sale will be open to the public from September 9 through 24. Preservation is the Art of the City® promotes and supports local studio artists and historic preservation in Fort Worth, Texas. More than 200 works of art by 53 regional artists will be exhibited, and every work is for sale at prices ranging from $100 to $10,000. The show is organized by and supports Historic Fort Worth, Inc.

    The Featured Artist, Fort Worth native Nancy Lamb, is an eight-year veteran and past Artist Award winner at Preservation is the Art of the City. Her featured artwork is a quirky series of over 60 watercolors, “Things Around the House and in the Garden.”

  • Rhythm & Blues: The Music of the Loom
  • Reception for the Artists
    September 10, 2011 6 – 9PM
    September 10 – 29, 2011

    Rhythm and Blues: the Music of the Loom will feature a wide variety of items woven in the past two years by the more than 70 Fort Worth Weavers Guild members from the greater Fort Worth area, some of whom have been weaving for over 50 years. There will also be a sale of Guild members’ handwoven pieces on Saturday, Sept. 10 from 2 – 9 p.m., and a reception from 7 – 9 p.m. the same day, in conjunction with Fall Gallery Night activities sponsored by the Fort Worth Art Dealers Association.

    Founded in 1955 by five Fort Worth weavers, the Guild’s mission is to sponsor a regular time when fiber artists can come together to share techniques and sources, to mentor new members and weavers, and to promote excellence in the ancient art of weaving. For further information, contact: Jean Walbridge, folkart@airmail.net or 817-921-6676 or the Fort Worth Weavers Guild at www.fortworthweaversguild.org

  • A Raven and Its Treasures
  • Reception for the Artist
    September 10, 2011 6 – 9PM
    September 10 – 29, 2011

    Metaphorical sculptures by ceramic artist Stormie Parker explore the inner most desires of us all. These terra cotta clay sculptures depict Ravens with intricately carved nests containing stolen trinkets which symbolize the heart’s desire. Therein you will find love and lust, fun and games, heart and home, age and wisdom. Upon viewing these birds and their cache you most certainly will connect with the contents of their treasures. (WHAT’S IN YOUR NEST??)

  • Botanical Season
  • Reception for the Artist
    September 10, 2011 6 – 9PM
    September 10 – 29, 2011

    Donna Wood captures her floral and other botanical subjects through drawings and studies, and avoids keeping a photographic record. She enlarges the imagery to the edge of the field so it can immerse and pull the viewer into the work. She uses colors inspired from the subjects, and repeatedly pulls the pigment throughout and across the painting.

  • Eclectic Creations
  • Reception for the Artist
    September 10, 2011 6 – 9PM
    September 10 – 29, 2011

    For Mary Morgan, the beauty of art is in the process, a journey of exploration and actualization. Color captures her; moreover, unifying colors is a unique and rewarding challenge for her, with endless possibilities. Morgan’s work is highly personal and a reflection of her internal climate, but each viewer should feel free to interpret and process as they wish.

  • 3-D Mixed Media on Stainless Steel
  • Reception for the Artist
    September 10, 2011 6 – 9PM
    September 10 – 29, 2011

    Colors, shapes, and design have transcended from paper to Byron May’s current “canvas”, stainless steel. He creates art simply for the joy of creating art, enjoying the process of transforming what he imagines into what he creates. He takes the collage of elements that are unassembled in his mind and creates art that excites and fascinates him.

  • TAC Featured Artist: Ellie Ivanova – Dreamscapes
  • Through September 29, 2011
    Through September 29, 2011

    Ellie Ivanova takes exception to the concept of photography as a truthful representation of reality. She sees her photography as the material expression of the ways in which we unwittingly shape the memories of the past, and how our past informs our desires for the future. It is an interpretation of the worlds outside and inside, a reconciliation of both and a discovery of their meaning.

    Most of the photographs in this series are done with a plastic Holga camera. With its soft focus, distortions and irregular vignetted corners, it is the perfect medium to convey the metaphors of dreams and memories in which a central subject becomes just a topos within a blurred world.

  • SPECIAL EVENTS:
  • September 8, 2011; 6:30 – 9:30PM: Preservation is the Art of the City Reception with the Artists
    This is the only opportunity to preview and purchase the art before the show opens to the public. Reservations are $100 per person/$75 for HFW members and include valet parking.

    David Tripp Exhibit Reception Sept. 10

    David Tripp, American Watercolorist, Painter of Cultural Relics
    Reception: September 10, 2011 5:00pm- 9:00pm

    Weiler House Fine Art Gallery is proud to have an exhibit and sale of works by David Tripp, American watercolorist.

    David M. Tripp is a Teacher of Art History and Philosophy at Martin High School, Arlington, TX. David has also taught religion and philosophy at the university level. For the past fifteen years, he has developed his watercolor and collage theory to embrace yesterday’s communities and intellectual heroes kept alive by our visual memories and academic sentiments.

    David is a native Missourian, growing up in St. Louis, sojourning with grandparents in rural southeast Missouri, and studying art in rural northeast Missouri. He has lived in Texas these past thirty years. His watercolor subjects are drawn from a host of “recollections” that comprise cities, small towns, and rural stretches throughout the midwest and southwest, particularly old Route 66.  David finds inspiration in the art of Edward Hopper and Andrew Wyeth, along with the writings of Marcel Proust and William Wordsworth.  These geniuses, along with others, he regards as kindred spirits in the way that they were frequently surprised by the revelatory powers of objects and primal memories from the past.  The appeal of David’s paintings springs from the universal belief of belonging, the cherishing of our past, our recollections, our cultural relics.  David through his art brings a conciousness to our own individual recollections, cultural relics, and a sense of common belonging.

    Preservation is the Art of the City reception Sept. 8

    The ninth annual Preservation is the Art of the City® art show and sale will be open to the public from September 9 through 24 at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, 1300 Gendy Street in the heart of the Fort Worth Cultural District.  More than 200 works of art by regional artists will be exhibited, and every work is for sale at prices ranging from $100 to $10,000.  The show is organized by Historic Fort Worth, Inc., and the presenting sponsors are XTO Energy Inc. and the Star-Telegram. 

    Preservation is the Art of the City® promotes and supports local studio artists and historic preservation in Fort Worth, Texas.  The 53 participating artists, who work in a broad range of media, styles and subject matters, receive 65% of the purchase price of their sold artwork. At least 10 new artists are introduced each year, and a jury assures high quality while maintaining a balance of established and young, emerging artists.

    “Stories of the City” is a special preservation-themed category. Popular with both artists and buyers, these works range from wildly abstracted interpretations of the theme to realistic depictions of well-loved Fort Worth landmarks.  Another special section is composed entirely of small artworks, which tend to have proportionately smaller prices but are just as beautiful as their larger counterparts.   

    OPENING:The Reception with the Artists on Thursday, September 8 at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center is the only opportunity to preview and purchase the art before the show opens to the public.  Reservations are $100 per person/$75 for HFW members and include valet parking. 

    Promptly at 6:30 p.m., the Honorary Co-Chairs, art collectors Suzy and Ray Rhodes, will be recognized.  Sponsored cash awards for outstanding artworks will be presented to the winning artists.  The festive evening continues with art sales, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres until 9:30 p.m.

    Preservation is the Art of the City reception Sept. 8

    The ninth annual Preservation is the Art of the City® art show and sale will be open to the public from September 9 through 24 at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, 1300 Gendy Street in the heart of the Fort Worth Cultural District.  More than 200 works of art by regional artists will be exhibited, and every work is for sale at prices ranging from $100 to $10,000.  The show is organized by Historic Fort Worth, Inc., and the presenting sponsors are XTO Energy Inc. and the Star-Telegram. 

    Preservation is the Art of the City® promotes and supports local studio artists and historic preservation in Fort Worth, Texas.  The 53 participating artists, who work in a broad range of media, styles and subject matters, receive 65% of the purchase price of their sold artwork. At least 10 new artists are introduced each year, and a jury assures high quality while maintaining a balance of established and young, emerging artists.

    “Stories of the City” is a special preservation-themed category. Popular with both artists and buyers, these works range from wildly abstracted interpretations of the theme to realistic depictions of well-loved Fort Worth landmarks.  Another special section is composed entirely of small artworks, which tend to have proportionately smaller prices but are just as beautiful as their larger counterparts.   

    OPENING:The Reception with the Artists on Thursday, September 8 at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center is the only opportunity to preview and purchase the art before the show opens to the public.  Reservations are $100 per person/$75 for HFW members and include valet parking. 

    Promptly at 6:30 p.m., the Honorary Co-Chairs, art collectors Suzy and Ray Rhodes, will be recognized.  Sponsored cash awards for outstanding artworks will be presented to the winning artists.  The festive evening continues with art sales, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres until 9:30 p.m.

                   PAINTINGS AND CLAY SCULPTURE ON DISPLAY IN GOUGH GALLERY

    The Greater Denton Arts council presents paintings and clay sculptures by Steven J. Miller.

    From Miller’s artist’s statement:

    My paintings are narratives about human relationships with each other and the natural world. The goal of my work is not to be judgmental but to describe the complexity of these relationships. In the past few years I have been looking at the Hudson River School, thinking about how they would portray today’s world.

    I render my artwork in a realistic style that leans towards cartoon. This style has been influenced by Asian art, mostly Japanese, with their use of asymmetry and flat plains and by the tight detail found in Persian miniatures.

    Opening reception is September 11, 2011, 2-4 pm.
