Preservation is the ART of the City
Presented by Historic Fort Worth, Inc
September 8 – 24, 2016
Fort Worth Community Arts Center
Each September Historic Fort Worth, Inc. produces a month-long, multi-pronged event called Preservation is the Art of the City™ at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, 1300 Gendy Street. In its 14th year, the primary component is an art show and sale that runs the entire month. Recognizing that great cities need studio artists who can earn a living, the artists in this show set and receive the fair market value for each of their artworks, which represents 65% of the total sales price, with the remaining 35% going to HFW as a charitable gift from the patron. Artists have the option of entering works into a special section called Stories of the City. During the month thousands of people visit the show. The following list of HFW events and programs occur within the gallery space. Each exposes new audiences to works by talented regional artists. Featured Artist: John Hartley.
