The Exhibition Advisory Panel of the Fort Worth Community Arts Center is proud to announce exhibitions by Shelley Scott and Delaney Smith, a collaborative, and Sharon Shero. Works will be on view in the Focus Galleries July 11 through August 23, 2014.
A reception for the artists will be held on July 11, 2014 from 6:00-9:00 p.m.

Shelley Scott and Delaney Smith have created collaborative pieces that mark a point of intersection between their individual processes. Scott finds unique properties in discarded materials that often suggest an idea or form to her. Smith is interested in the book as an object and the way people interact with its form is a major influence in her work. Scott and Smith have created a dialogue between sculpture and utility, raising questions between form and function.

Sharon Shero lets narratives be her compass whenever she creates a portfolio. She begins with a “germ” of a concept and since she prefers not to storybook the work, the series often evolves into an unexpected conclusion, with plot and image twists, turns, and the occasional “aha!” moment along the way. Most recently she has been immersed in photomontage, digitally collaging her own images. Regardless of the medium, photography will continue to underpin her work, even if it devolves to a miniature within an assemblage or is mutilated beyond recognition.
