IMPORTANT NOTE: The visual arts project is a labor of love by our Executive Producer Dana Schultes, who selects and programs work on top of leading our organization. Our business is theatre, but we believe that since we have the ability and the venue necessary to help lift up local visual artists, we should do so. And we love being able to support local artists!

That being said, please note that our theatre and cafe customers are our first order if business. We cannot make arrangements for special viewings during the 1.5 hours prior to each show that we offer dinner service. Artist receptions are held at the show opening following performances or on non-show nights at the discretion of cafe and theatre management. We do our best to make everyone’s vision a reality. When special requests are made, we will do our best to make it happen. However, compromise and understanding ​are key. In other words, we are in the business of drama, but we prefer to keep it on the stage where it belongs.

We love our local arts community and are honored and humbled to have the space to be able to feature their wonderful work. Thank you for all you contribute to our region.

best, Marketing Director Jen

1st Annual Keller Art Walk call for artists

Arts take center stage in new Keller festival

A new family-friendly festival celebrating the arts is coming to Old Town Keller thanks to a partnership between the city’s Public Arts Board and the local nonprofit Keller Public Arts Society.

Keller, TX – The first annual Keller Art Walk, scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 14 from 3 to 8 pm, will honor the artists selected for the city’s new rotating art program and celebrate the recently completed improvements in Old Town Keller.

Location: Old Town Keller West

Earlier this year, the Arts Board initiated the inaugural phase of a rotating art-on-loan program to fill the sculpture pads added during the city’s recent updates to Old Town Keller West. The pads are located along the strolling promenade that runs north-south adjacent to the eclectic restaurants and small businesses in the area.

For Phase I of the program, the Arts Board selected five sculptures for a two-year exhibit; in 2018, they will select and install six additional pieces, also for a two-year exhibit. The staggered phases will bring new pieces to Old Town each year, providing a dynamic and engaging attraction that will help draw interest and foot traffic to the area.

The Keller Art Walk will be a community event with a unique, strolling atmosphere aimed at showcasing the arts in Keller. Patrons will have the opportunity to meet the artists whose work is on display in Old Town and watch plein-aire, or outdoor, artists create captivating paintings along the promenade. Student musicians from Keller ISD and a variety of local vendors and professional entertainers will also be featured throughout the event.

Sponsorships and vendor spots are still available. Applications can be found at www.cityofkeller.com/artwalk. For more information, call 817-743-4000 or email publicarts@cityofkeller.com.

About KPAS: Keller Public Arts Society is a 501(c)3 corporation dedicated to supporting public art in Keller.  Our mission is to provide a platform for on-going support and participation in the preservation and growth of the local artistic community through collaboration with city government and civic organizations, as well as local businesses, clubs and individuals interested in supporting the arts.  Membership is free.

WestBend Debuts Public Art Program with Snap & Seek July 20

Collection of 26 pieces is one of the largest concentrations of public art in Fort Worth

  

FORT WORTH, Texas (July 11, 2017) – Selfies and shares abound with the latest wave of public art at WestBend, Trademark Property Co.’s University District mixed-use development. Twelve new works splashed across the property expand its already impressive public art program, bringing added color, character and a unique spirit to the property.

 

The new works showcase a variety of style and medium by both local and national artists, including 10 murals by Dallas-based artist Kyle Steed, a site-specific “LOVE” sculpture by San Francisco artist Laura Kimpton, and a mural by local artist Lauren Childs. These join prior works by local artist Devon Nowlin and a rotating photography exhibit from the Amon Carter Museum of American Art.

 

“When it comes to retail places today, it’s all about creating experiences. Carefully curated public art activates a space and makes it unique, all while contributing to the vibe of the neighborhood and the city,” said Terry Montesi, CEO, Trademark Property Co. “Most importantly, art is to be enjoyed. We invite our guests to interact with the works and share them with one another, and make them a part of their life. We want WestBend to be an extension of the world-class Fort Worth Arts District.”

 

New art at WestBend includes:

·         Kyle Steed:  Dallas-based artist Kyle Steed makes his Fort Worth debut with 10 WestBend murals that include quotes and references to famous Texans. There are a total of nine murals in the parking garage, consisting of five elevator vestibule works; three small works in stairwells, including a Willie Nelson quote, and Happy Trails mural on the exit wall; as well as a Patsy Cline quote near Drybar.

·         Laura Kimpton: Kimpton’s steel “LOVE” sculpture is celebratory and optimistic in spirit, sending a positive message to WestBend visitors. Located in the green space near Woodhouse Day Spa, the sculpture includes hundreds of programmable LED lights that change color at night. The piece is a part of Kimpton’s Monumental World Series that began at the 2009 Burning Man Festival and has since had permanent installations at the Apple store in San Francisco’s Union Square and Santa Rosa, Calif.; Las Vegas and Reno, Nevada; and additional appearances at dozens of art and music festivals across the globe.

·         Lauren Childs: Childs’ first mural, “The Little Things,” depicts succulents with vibrant color and texture, bordering on sculptural, and is located between Woodhouse Day Spa and CorePower Yoga. An advocate for local art, Childs co-founded Fort Works Art, which began as an event-based pop-up organization and has now opened its first permanent gallery space in the Cultural District in Fort Worth.  

In addition to these new works, WestBend also recently unveiled the second iteration in its Amon Carter Museum of American Art series. Thanks to a partnership with the Amon Carter, WestBend is home to a rotating selection of nine, 4-by-6-foot reproductions from the museum’s renowned photography collection, presented on backlit film and displayed in lightboxes. Each iteration of the series is curated by the Amon Carter and is on display at WestBend for six-month intervals. The second iteration launched this month and will be on display through the end of the year.

 

Other public art at WestBend includes five photographic murals by Fort Worth artist and TCU graduate, Devon Nowlin.  The murals, which face the Trinity River and Trinity River Trails and Tom Thumb, capture the shopping and dining experience, health and fitness, and the natural surroundings of WestBend.

 

To celebrate its public art program, WestBend will host a #WestBendLove Snap & Seek on Thursday, July 20 at 7 p.m. with artists Lauren Childs, Devon Nowlin and an Instagram takeover by Kyle Steed. The event kicks off on Level 6, the top floor of the free parking garage located behind Tyler’s, and the first 50 guests to check in will receive a free swag bag illustrated by Steed. #WestBendLove will feature a polaroid scavenger hunt, frozen treats, drinks from HG Sply Co., surprises, and the opportunity to meet the artists in attendances. To RSVP, click here.

 

WestBend’s public art is one aspect of a property redevelopment focused on evolving the University retail district by delivering a walkable critical mass of retail and restaurants, urban-style pedestrian experiences, and Trinity River/Trinity Trails connectivity. In addition to public art, the redevelopment includes newretail, trailside restaurants, office space, and property amenities. Bartaco and Warby Parker recently announced they will open new locations at the property.

 

The redevelopment will continue with phase II, which will include a property expansion onto the adjacent 3.5-acre tract immediately south of WestBend. Conceptual planning is underway to develop additional mixed-use space featuring added ground floor retail, a boutique hotel, and multi-family units.

 

At full build-out, WestBend will include 670,000 square feet of walkable urban retail, restaurant, office, multi-family, and hospitality space.

CAC Hosts Live Mural Painting Project to be Held 7.7 at Victory Plaza to Honor Fallen Officers – volunteers needed

EVENT: 7.7 Live Mural Painting Project
WHEN: Friday, July 7, 2017 from 4:30am to 4:30pm

WHERE: Victory Plaza outside of WFAA-TV, Channel 8 Studios, 3030 Olive Street, Dallas, 75201

WHAT: In collaboration with WFAA-TV Channel 8 (ABC), Creative Arts Center of Dallas (CAC) will be organizing a community-focused live mural painting project as a way to pay tribute to the four Dallas Police Department officers as well as the DART officer who lost their lives that day. The focus is to give both the general and the arts community a way to pay their respects in a lasting and meaningful way. CAC teaching artists Lynn Armstrong & Katrina Doran have created an interpretative portrait for each of the four DPD officers as well as the DART officer in a way that celebrates each of their lives and allows the community to learn more about them and how each officer lived his life and what they were passionate about. Volunteers will help participants paint the murals and anyone can participate either as a volunteer or as a painter. No art experience is required and all supplies are included.

WFAA-TV will be broadcasting live throughout the day starting with “Daybreak” and in the morning the Dallas Police Choir is scheduled to perform during the morning news show. There are five two-and-a-half hour shifts that artists and others may sign up to serve as volunteers who will help people paint the murals.
Please sign up at the link below:
BACKGROUND:
Not only is CAC a visual arts school, it is a thriving arts community for a diverse range of students from teens to seniors. Located on a two-acre campus four miles east of downtown Dallas, the nonprofit community arts organization is geared to beginning, emerging and working artists. Offering more than 500 classes and workshops per year in such disciplines as ceramics, clay sculpture, creative writing, drawing, fiber, glass, jewelry, metal arts, mosaic, painting, photography, printmaking and stone carving, CAC also offers free arts programming to at-risk and underserved children through programs, such as Art as a Second Language Camp MetalHead and unseenamerica. CAC recently launched ArtAbility, a new program for people with developmental and intellectual disabilities.
The Creative Arts Center held a mural competition this spring in collaboration with the Cedars Social’s new container bar that faces the Dallas Police Department Headquarters employing the “ground·swell,”. CAC has completed several live mural painting projects, including a 20′ mural for Savor Dallas.
