There Is Still Time To Reserve Your Table for November Artwalk


The November Midtown Artwalk will be on Saturday November 19 and this is the Saturday before Black Friday and the Thanksgiving holiday.

This is an opportunity for mall shoppers to catch up on holiday sales and my advice to you is to have some quick selling items. Items that are $10-$20 and that don’t eat up your cost.

Movies that are out and have been keeping the mall busy are:
Dr. Strange
Almost Christmas

There are more movies, but these are the popular top three.

If you would like to reserve a booth please let me know by Friday the 18th.  Booth space is $50.

October Artwalk at Valley View : Halloween Party and Artists’ Booths


Saturday, October 15, 2016, come on over to Valley View and let’s have a Halloween Artwalk Festival. 

Booth Fees are now back down to $50 and you can come as early as 1pm to set up.

I will continue to honor whatever previous arrangements you’ve made with Michelle–I want this Artwalk person transition to be easy for everyone.

Artwalk Halloween Event

This is the October Artwalk so this means Halloween fun time. Dress up on your Halloween costume and let’s make the mall festive.

The idea is to energize the movie goers and get them excited about Artwalk and the art galleries. When they are excited, they will want to come and support local artists.

So if they see people dressed up as their movie characters, giving out candy, etc, they will spend more time and hopefully money on your art.

Halloween Costume Idea:

Dress up as a character from your favorite movie. I can tell you that Suicide Squad was a huge hit in the mall–there was an event with cosplay (people dressing up as their favorite characters) and the mall was super busy on opening weekend.

Movies That Will Be Released on Artwalk Weekend

Some of the popular movies that will bring in the crowds will be released on Artwalk Weekend are:

Max Steel
The Accountant
Kevin Hart: What Now?

Remember that our AMC has the lowest priced tickets in town. $6 for movies and $8 for 3D–these are the evening prices every day including opening weekends so take advantage of this.

On Saturdays it gets busier after 5pm and the crowds come for the movies up until 12 am.

Movies are the main reason people come to Valley View Mall–it’s what it’s known for so if we make the movie goer’s experience unique they will bring their friends and so on.

Ideas To Attract People To Your Booth or Gallery

Give out more than wine. People expect the wine now so we need to get a bit creative. Since this is Halloween Artwalk, you can give out candy and treats.

Dress up your gallery a little bit for the holiday. Skulls are in as well so having some quick selling prints of your art with skulls or something creepy/Halloween themed may sell faster.

Here is a Pinterest board filled with great Halloween ideas you might find useful. 

How To Make This Artwalk A Huge Success:

Make sure you have your business cards and flyers ready. Maybe attach a piece of candy to them to make them memorable.

Let me know how many tables you need and if you need electricity as soon as possible. Remember first come first served.

Invite your friends. Call them, tell them to dress up and remember this is a fun and FREE event. Create a Facebook Event from your own account–grab the images from GMT’s event if you need them.

Stop by Skypony or GMT for Artwalk flyers if you need them–we provide them free of charge.

As always, I am here for any questions, comments, and ideas on how to make Artwalk a huge success.

ArtsGoggle Registration Deadline Sept. 1


Saturday, October 8, 2016 | Noon to 10pm
 Join us as we celebrate the 14th anniversary of ArtsGoggle, 
the Near Southside’s most beloved community arts event.
What is ArtsGoggle?

Since its inception in 2003, ArtsGoggle has evolved into a popular festival of the arts in this eclectic neighborhood of historic elegance and urbanism. This free to the public, family-friendly event attracts a crowd as diverse as the neighborhood itself with live music, artistic displays of every kind, food, drink, and fun for everyone.

ArtsGoggle is unlike any event in Fort Worth, as residents from the nearby Fairmount, Mistletoe Heights, Berkeley Place, and Ryan Place neighborhoods are joined by medical district workers and visitors from throughout the region for a community arts festival focused in the Near Southside’s Park Place and Magnolia Villages. One of the event’s goals – along with celebrating art of all kinds – is to showcase the unique and memorable character of the Near Southside. Visitors are invited to park their cars and rediscover this revitalized urban neighborhood by foot or by bicycle, including Fort Worth Bike Sharing bikes.

ArtsGoggle prides itself in hosting a casual, approachable and vibrant environment to appreciate art and learn about the talents within our own community. For more than a decade, ArtsGoggle has been the launch pad for many artists showing their work for the first time. ArtsGoggle provides a supportive setting for both aspiring and professional visual artists, to display, sell and seek comment on their artwork.
Embracing all arts, the event also boasts an impressive program of performance art and music. The 2015 ArtsGoggle featured more than 100 bands, many of which have members who live or work in the Near Southside. The entertainment at ArtsGoggle is diverse and showcases music from a variety of cultures and styles. The event partners with arts organizations across Fort Worth to draw attention to their programs. In years past ArtsGoggle has hosted the Fort Worth Opera for pop-up concerts; showcased Ballet Folklorico de Azteca for a colorful dance performance; and hosted The Bucket List Jazz Band, a band dedicated to the lifelong dream of 90-year-old Jim Milam to resurrect Dixieland Jazz.

Event hours are Noon to 10pm, a full day to offer patrons time to experience all that ArtsGoggle has to offer and will allow greater sales opportunities for our artists.

ArtsGoggle will focus on venues within the 2 mixed-use urban villages: Magnolia Village and Park Place Village. This condensed site map will provide a more manageable and enjoyable experience for our artists and patrons.

Each year as ArtsGoggle grows, so do the operating costs of the event. In order to produce an even higher quality event with the same great neighborhood experience, we have implemented a $40 registration fee for artists. The money collected provides vital funding to support improved communications, pre-event promotions, programs, signage and more.

The event is committed to keeping artist’s fees affordable by requiring a registration fee of only $40, with no others fees to participate. Each year as ArtsGoggle grows, so do the operating costs of the event. In order to produce an even higher quality event with the same great neighborhood experience, the money collected provides vital funding to support improved communications, pre-event promotions, programs, signage and more.

ArtsGoggle is free to the public, with no wristbands, tickets, admission costs. Unlike many popular for-profit events in Fort Worth, ArtsGoggle is produced by a not-for-profit community organization and thus has no need to produce revenue. Instead, the event is exclusively focused on creating an environment to appreciate and celebrate the arts. All funds raised for the event will be dedicated to producing a memorable and successful experience for artists, venues and patrons of all ages.

Near Southside, Inc., 1606 Mistletoe Blvd, Fort Worth, TX 76104


Gallery at Goggle
This fall, the Near Southside will transform its streets, sidewalks and businesses into a one-day art experience like no other.  Businesses open their doors to show off the work of a wide array of local artists.  Park Place Avenue will host GALLERY at GOGGLE, featuring fine art and gallery-quality artists inside each of the participating businesses in Park Place Village.  Participating businesses range from a windows and doors retailer to restaurants, a coworking space to a music school.  In support of the Fort Worth arts community, these businesses clear their walls, rearrange furniture, and transform their traditional work environments into a gallery space dedicated to displaying the work of ArtsGoggle artists.  Venues receive no compensation for hosting artists; in fact, the Park Place Village businesses go to great expense to become a venue, with many opening during off-hours and making adjustments to their spaces to accommodate artists.  This unique partnership between business and artist is a distinctive feature of ArtsGoggle, and furthers the conversation about the importance of art in our everyday environments.  GALLERY at GOGGLE will also include an outdoor street festival for artists and stage with live music and performace art throughtout the festival.
Artists with previous gallery experience who wish to participate indoors or outdoors at Park Place Village are able to request this location on their ArtsGoggle Artist Application.  Once requested, we will work with Park Place Village business owners to identify a venue for your art to be exhibited. We hope you will join us for this special ArtsGoggle experience unique to Park Place Village!
MAGNOLIA VILLAGE: Taking it to the Street
In addition to Gallery at Goggle, ArtsGoggle hosts an outdoor street party spreading more than a mile across the Magnolia Village. The street festival closes Magnolia Avenue to car traffic from 8th Avenue to South Main Street and fills 16 blocks with more 650 visual artists booths and three stages with music and performance art of all varieties.

Artists wanting to participate outdoors at the Magnolia Village street party can request this location on their ArtsGoggle Artist Application, and can now even request a specific block. All artists will be allotted a 10’x10′ space, unless a larger space is requested. Artists must provide all their own supplies including tent, tables and displays.  However, we are able to provide a small amount of electricity to each booth to power booth lights and small electric device. Tents will line the center of Magnolia Avenue, placed side-by-side and back-to-back with power running between the tents for easy access. More details are provided online in the artist application.
All ArtsGoggle participation details are below.
Artists are defined as visual artists working in studio arts. Painters, photographers, woodworkers, weavers, printmakers, sculptors, potters, jewelers, illustrators and artists of all mediums may now register online! The visual artist application fee is $40 and all money collected is used towards event production expenses.
