October 4 – October 23, 2019
RECEPTION: Friday, October 4, 2019 @ 6 PM – 9 PM
The Fort Worth Community Arts Center is proud to partner with the Fort Worth Zoo to present “Through a Scope 2019”, an exhibition promoting the importance of all life on this planet. Through an array of mixed media, we intend to shed light on the delicate balance of the ecosystem by addressing the importance of all species that live within it. To further address these complexities, we are designing a comprehensive educational component for all ages. The goal of this exhibition is to bring awareness, open dialogue and knowledge sharing about the current issues around conservation. To accomplish this, we will hold a panel discussion with educators from The Fort Worth Zoo to blend the artistic mind with a scientific approach to the subject. Our hope is to inspire people to take positive steps towards the stewardship for our planet.
CALL TO ARTISTS: National call to artists over the age of 18, open to all disciplines. We are looking for artwork that address life on earth with a focus on the wild kingdom. All medias including oils, acrylics, pastels, watercolors, prints, drawings, mixed media, sculpture, video, installation, photography, and digital art. Through a Scope 2019 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. This show will be juried by FWCAC’s Curator, Jonathan Levy.
