“Why gnomes?” people ask. On a superficial level, gnomes are cute and funny. Viewers seem amused by seeing them constructed of improbable materials or placed in ridiculous situations.
However, beyond simple entertainment value, the gnomes have an additional purpose. I find that gnomes are an effective visual metaphor for disenfranchised people groups – the “others” among us.
Although gnomes can be appealing, we usually also find them slightly creepy. We tend to trivialize or demonize them and certainly don’t think of them as admirable characters who are adult in nature or hold any real power. – Janet Morrow
Fort Worth Art Collective Spring Show

Premiering on Spring Gallery Night, 2013, this pop-up concept combines raw space and raw talent to create a refined cultural experience for a limited time period. These exhibits combine contemporary works in a wide-range of media, showcasing a group of local artists, most of whom do not have gallery representation in the Fort Worth area. This collective is comprised of 28 artists working in a variety of media at various stages in their careers.

John and Janice Weaver
March 4 – 30, 2016
Reception: Saturday, March 19, 2016 (Spring Gallery Night) 6 – 9pm
Janice often enjoys painting on location. She is described as a colorist/modern impressionist. Brush strokes are maintained as a way to add interest.
John works with found local woods. This wood is often inhabited by worms and fungi that give it character. Although difficult to work, it is the uniqueness of this type of wood that produces a one of a kind piece of art.
“A challenge to turn, but worth it for the beauty.” –John Weaver
John and Janice create combined works that are “just fun”.
