Fictional 2 & White Rock Lake at the Bath House

Join us for these exciting art events at the Bath House Cultural Center:
Fictional 2
White Rock Lake: An Inspiring Work of Art
A Year of Celebrations

Fictional 2

July 9-August 6, 2011

Opening Reception with the Artists: Saturday, July 9, 2011 (7-9 PM)

Free and open to the public

After its popular debut last year, Fictional is returning once again in 2011 with a new collection of highly original and imaginative artwork. Fictional is designed as a collaborative project between the Bath House gallery and the 13th Annual Festival of Independent Theatres (FIT). In the same spirit as FIT, which strives to celebrate the talent of local independent theatre companies, the exhibition also has as its main goal to provide a showcase for the innovative, transcendent, and thriving art created by local and regional visual artists.

To compile the artwork for this exhibition, artists were asked come up with their own artistic interpretations of the plots of the eight one-act plays that are being presented as part of FIT. Artists were not given a detailed description of the plays; rather, they received a list of short phrases or blurbs derived from the theatrical productions from which they selected themes for their works of art. Because the artists had no thorough knowledge of the content of the plays, they ended up creating personal, unique, and independent interpretations of the themes, based solely on the few words of the blurbs.

The participating artists are Amelia Anthony, Matt Bagley, Rita Barnard, Kimberly Bradshaw Meadows, Debbie Buie, Lisa Cannon, Jane Cornish Smith, Emily Connor, Alfie Coy, Cynthia Daniel, Christa Diepenbrock, Cuyler Etheredge, Valarie Evans, Jacque Forsher, Jose A. Hernandez, Juan J. Hernandez, Yessenia Hernandez, Richard Howdy, Ellie Ivanova, Carmen Kelley, Rachel Knowles, KeLaine Kvale, Julius Longshaw, Rachel Lord, Terri Neal, Sharon Neel-Bagley, Melia Newman, Cap Pannell, Paul Peña, Ginn Powell, Octaviano Rangel, Rolando Reyna, Lesley Rucker, Stäcy Smith, Jeanne Sturdevant, Madeleine Terry, Jessica Trevizo, Mary Ann Turner, VET, Jon Walz, Melissa Wertz, andMichele Wertz.

White Rock Lake: An Inspiring Work of Art

Photographs by J R Compton, Brian Hiltz, and Todd Landry

June 25-October 1, 2011

At the White Rock Lake Museum

Opening Reception with the Artists: Saturday, July 9, 2011 (7-9 PM) 

“Beautiful,” “enchanting,” “mesmerizing,” “a jewel in the heart of the city,” “the people’s playground.” These are some of the superlatives and nicknames given to White Rock Lake throughout the years by the large number of people who have visited this magnificently scenic destination in Dallas. All of those people have been spellbound by the lake’s beauty and grace, and visual artists are no exception.

Painters spend afternoons at the lake painting a landscape, sculptors have found objects from nature for their sculptures at the lake, and young art students have gathered at the park to sketch and draw the natural surroundings.

Photographing the lake has brought joy to many artists, too, including the three photographers featured in this exhibition, J R Compton,Todd Landry, and Brian Hiltz. The three photographers have come to recognize White Rock Lake as a true ecological, recreational, and cultural treasure that possesses an exquisite and elegant presence that is worth capturing on film and digital photographic media.

The sources of inspiration for the three artists are diverse, but their affinity for capturing images of nature brings them together in this project organized by the White Rock Lake Museum in celebration of the Centennial of the lake. The photographers evoke a deep sense of serenity and introspection with their images. They also reveal things and moments that are often overlooked in our daily life. The photographers focus on what is frequently imperceptible or disregarded in nature and bring it forward with great skill and a reverential artistic eye, allowing the viewer to perceive the astounding splendor of our oasis in the middle of the city. 

To see more of the photographers’ artwork, visit their websites atwww.jrcompton.comwww.toddlandryphotography.com, and www.brianhiltz.com.

July at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center

We have stuff happening this month that is worth draggin’ yourself out into the heat for! Come into our cool and enjoy incredible art, events and theatre. Park in the Western Heritage Garage and get a voucher for $2 parking of 90 minutes or less. 

The Focus Galleries present two local young men who are inspired by the music they listen to in the studio, with audacious, wild and challenging results.

In other galleries: A mixed-media artist in a solo exhibit; examples of Texas art from private collections; selections from local galleries in their annual exhibit; and narrative photography by a transplanted Bulgarian.

There are oceans of special events at the FWCAC: Early Texas art sale, pottery and ceramic sale; a class on mosaic making; a panel discussion on public art; a bachelors auction; and a week of the arts for educators. See the calendar at fwcac.org or at worthgoing.com for more details on these and other events. Gallery receptions are free and open to the public.

July 1 & 2, 2011: Collectors of Fort Worth Art Tenth Annual Show & Sale 
Collectors of Fort Worth Art proudly presents the tenth annual show and sale of early Fort Worth and Texas art. Since 2003 this annual event has made hundreds of examples of early Texas art in all price ranges available to Fort Worth collectors. As always, works by Fort Worth artists active before 1950 will be the focus of this event, augmented by works from across the State. Dealers from Fort Worth, Dallas, San Antonio and Houston will offer a full range of prints, drawings, watercolors, and oil paintings. Sale dates are Friday July 1, 2011 5PM – 9PM and Saturday July 2, 2011 10AM – 5PM.

Receptions: July 8 6-9pm

FOCUS GALLERY ONE: What Happened Was…

July 8 – August 25, 2011

The urban culture surrounding Hip-Hop music inspires Andrew Stalder, as evidenced by the graffiti-like marks and materials he uses. As graffiti is emblematic of the past presence of the tagger, so Stalder’s work is about the trace of his existence, a remainder and reminder that lives on in the world. The paintings of Andrew Stalder are a kind of self-portrait – a realization of self through the physical act of painting. They capture the sensation of the moment during the process. Stalder’s works are also about materials, mark-making, rhythm, color and expression. He eschews brushes, prefering stencils, spray cans, markers and other tools.

FOCUS GALLERY TWO: That Dog Don’t Hunt

July 8 – August 25

Timothy Harding is intersted in artworks that require a viewer’s presence and political ideology to properly function. Each viewer, with their own socio-political baggage, creates their own meaning and experience of the work. Harding’s approach to his work addresses ideas such as being an American, being a member of the global community, being a member of a social network and listening to heavy-metal music. His working methods aim to achieve two main goals: Create an intense visual experience; and keep just enough information from the viewer to foster an environment of purely unique interpretations.

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.

Looking for the Lone Star: Early Texas Art from Private Fort Worth Collections

July 8 – 29, 2011

This exhibit is organized by Collectors of Fort Worth Art, a group dedicated to the preservation of Fort Worth art and its history. Many of Fort Worth’s most exciting art collections are housed in private homes. This exhibit will showcase 45 examples of early Texas art produced in Fort Worth and other Texas cities, generally before 1970. Selections from each collection are made by that collection’s owner, assuring a highly varied exhibit where personal taste and individual aesthetic enjoy free reign.

Selections 2011

July 8 – 30, 2011

Each year the Fort Worth Art Dealers Association (FWADA) presents an exhibition featuring a variety of works from each FWADA member gallery. FWADA members include independent art dealers, non-profit exhibition spaces, museums, and university galleries. These institutions bring noteworthy and meaningful art before the public by organizing, funding, and hosting open exhibitions.

TAC Featured Artist: Ellie Ivanova – Dreamscapes

July 8 – September 29, 2011

Ellie Ivanova takes exception to the concept of photography as a truthful representation of reality. She see 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.

July 8 & 9, 2011: Texas Pottery & Sculpture Sale

July 1 & 2, 2011: Collectors of Fort Worth Art Tenth Annual Show & Sale 
Collectors of Fort Worth Art proudly presents the tenth annual show and sale of early Fort Worth and Texas art. Since 2003 this annual event has made hundreds of examples of early Texas art in all price ranges available to Fort Worth collectors. As always, works by Fort Worth artists active before 1950 will be the focus of this event, augmented by works from across the State.

Sale dates are Friday July 1, 2011 5PM – 9PM and Saturday July 2, 2011 10AM – 5PM.

Receptions: July 8 6-9pm

FOCUS GALLERY ONE: What Happened Was…

July 8 – August 25, 2011

The urban culture surrounding Hip-Hop music inspires Andrew Stalder, as evidenced by the graffiti-like marks and materials he uses. As graffiti is emblematic of the past presence of the tagger, so Stalder’s work is about the trace of his existence, a remainder and reminder that lives on in the world. The paintings of Andrew Stalder are a kind of self-portrait – a realization of self through the physical act of painting. They capture the sensation of the moment during the process. Stalder’s works are also about materials, mark-making, rhythm, color and expression. He eschews brushes, prefering stencils, spray cans, markers and other tools.

FOCUS GALLERY TWO: That Dog Don’t Hunt

July 8 – August 25

Timothy Harding is intersted in artworks that require a viewer’s presence and political ideology to properly function. Each viewer, with their own socio-political baggage, creates their own meaning and experience of the work. Harding’s approach to his work addresses ideas such as being an American, being a member of the global community, being a member of a social network and listening to heavy-metal music. His working methods aim to achieve two main goals: Create an intense visual experience; and keep just enough information from the viewer to foster an environment of purely unique interpretations.

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.

Looking for the Lone Star: Early Texas Art from Private Fort Worth Collections

July 8 – 29, 2011

This exhibit is organized by Collectors of Fort Worth Art, a group dedicated to the preservation of Fort Worth art and its history. Many of Fort Worth’s most exciting art collections are housed in private homes. This exhibit will showcase 45 examples of early Texas art produced in Fort Worth and other Texas cities, generally before 1970. Selections from each collection are made by that collection’s owner, assuring a highly varied exhibit where personal taste and individual aesthetic enjoy free reign.

Selections 2011

July 8 – 30, 2011

Each year the Fort Worth Art Dealers Association (FWADA) presents an exhibition featuring a variety of works from each FWADA member gallery. FWADA members include independent art dealers, non-profit exhibition spaces, museums, and university galleries. These institutions bring noteworthy and meaningful art before the public by organizing, funding, and hosting open exhibitions. In addition, they work to stimulate the community’s awareness of visual art through educational programs, by supporting art competitions such as Art in the Metroplex and with events such as Fort Worth Gallery Night and Artist’s Christmas. FWADA also supports and participates in EASL, the Emergency Artists Support League, which provides emergency economic aid to artists who have suffered major misfortunes.

Flow: Dalton Maroney 1982 – 2011 at the AMA

 

Flow: Dalton Maroney 1982 – 2011

Curator: Benito Huerta 

 

This is Mr. Maroney’s first survey exhibition and is comprised of approximately 17 sculptures and 6 works on paper created over a 29 year period.  Maroney, an avid fisherman who spends his summers fly fishing in Colorado rivers, has followed a disciplined linear pattern of working with variations of the boat form over the years.  His yearly fishing ritual is as contemplative as it is active and it underlies and informs the focus of his work. He uses the boat as a starting point to explore nuances in his sculptural materials and form, with some pieces appearing more figurative and others becoming abstract.  Coloration, which early in his career was minimal, has evolved into richly nuanced hues that add another dimension to the work.  His visual language includes metaphors for fishing, the landscape and water – where he is at ease.  This message is clearly imparted by his pristinely-crafted wooden sculptures. The exhibit runs June 1 – July 31 at the

This is Mr. Maroney’s first survey exhibition and is comprised of approximately 17 sculptures and 6 works on paper created over a 29 year period.  Maroney, an avid fisherman who spends his summers fly fishing in Colorado rivers, has followed a disciplined linear pattern of working with variations of the boat form over the years.  His yearly fishing ritual is as contemplative as it is active and it underlies and informs the focus of his work. He uses the boat as a starting point to explore nuances in his sculptural materials and form, with some pieces appearing more figurative and others becoming abstract.  Coloration, which early in his career was minimal, has evolved into richly nuanced hues that add another dimension to the work.  His visual language includes metaphors for fishing, the landscape and water – where he is at ease.  This message is clearly imparted by his pristinely-crafted wooden sculptures. The exhibit runs June 1 – July 31 at the
