1st Annual Keller Art Walk call for artists

Arts take center stage in new Keller festival

A new family-friendly festival celebrating the arts is coming to Old Town Keller thanks to a partnership between the city’s Public Arts Board and the local nonprofit Keller Public Arts Society.

Keller, TX – The first annual Keller Art Walk, scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 14 from 3 to 8 pm, will honor the artists selected for the city’s new rotating art program and celebrate the recently completed improvements in Old Town Keller.

Location: Old Town Keller West

Earlier this year, the Arts Board initiated the inaugural phase of a rotating art-on-loan program to fill the sculpture pads added during the city’s recent updates to Old Town Keller West. The pads are located along the strolling promenade that runs north-south adjacent to the eclectic restaurants and small businesses in the area.

For Phase I of the program, the Arts Board selected five sculptures for a two-year exhibit; in 2018, they will select and install six additional pieces, also for a two-year exhibit. The staggered phases will bring new pieces to Old Town each year, providing a dynamic and engaging attraction that will help draw interest and foot traffic to the area.

The Keller Art Walk will be a community event with a unique, strolling atmosphere aimed at showcasing the arts in Keller. Patrons will have the opportunity to meet the artists whose work is on display in Old Town and watch plein-aire, or outdoor, artists create captivating paintings along the promenade. Student musicians from Keller ISD and a variety of local vendors and professional entertainers will also be featured throughout the event.

Sponsorships and vendor spots are still available. Applications can be found at www.cityofkeller.com/artwalk. For more information, call 817-743-4000 or email publicarts@cityofkeller.com.

About KPAS: Keller Public Arts Society is a 501(c)3 corporation dedicated to supporting public art in Keller.  Our mission is to provide a platform for on-going support and participation in the preservation and growth of the local artistic community through collaboration with city government and civic organizations, as well as local businesses, clubs and individuals interested in supporting the arts.  Membership is free.

ABOUT US: Located at 1300 Gendy Street, the FWCAC is part of the most architecturally significant museum districts in the United States. The striking modern Herbert Bayer building (with a later O’Neil Ford addition) opened to the public in 1954 as home to one of the most prestigious and oldest collecting organizations in the state of Texas, the Modern Museum of Fort Worth. When, in 2002, the Modern moved down the street, the Fort Worth Community Arts Center opened. The building has exhibited world class art and supported the performing arts for more than half a century. The Arts Council manages the FWCAC, provides leadership and funding to local arts organizations through our competitive Grants Program and administers the Fort Worth Public Art program.

Call for Artists – Creativity on Tap

Call for Artists – Creativity on Tap

Creativity on Tap provides a showcase for beer lovers to pay homage to all aspects of the brewing arts. Do hops, grains, malt and pint glasses get your creative juices flowing? How about that fragrance of the hops when you walk into a brewhouse? Maybe it’s the beautiful color as beer flows out of the tap or the beads of condensation on the specialty glass that lovingly cradles a seasonal Belgian or Pilsner?

Whatever inspires you, now’s the time to be part of a great, fun time.

Creativity on Tap is a component of Ricochet17—a daylong, citywide celebration of the arts and creativity in Richardson.

The tables are not in an area secured over night and must be reset daily. Art Show information can be found at:www.Infinicon.net/artshow.html.
