[Art Exhibition] Buffer Zone by Madeline Irvine opening July 6

In her art, Madeline Irvine concentrates on the beauty of the natural world. Irvine’s large salt crystal installations in Buffer Zones focus on the giant kelp forests beneath the ocean surface and the waves they help moderate. Along with coral reefs, kelp and mangrove are essential buffers between the enormity and power of the ocean and the essential fragility of the coast. Yet, the nature is endangered on many levels caused by global warming. Through her installation, Irvine hopes to raise awareness for environmental issues and contribute to the preservation of the world.

Buffer Zones by Madeline Irvine will be on view at Fort Worth Community Arts Center July 6 through July 27, 2018. The opening reception is July 6, 2018; 6-9pm. For more information about this exhibition, please visit: http://www.fwcac.com/?exhibition_detail/5753

[Art Exhibition] Ordinary Time by Chris Ireland

In 2006, photographer Chris Ireland started to take photos of the ordinary daily minutia surrounding his mother, father, and brother who still resided in the same home he grew up in on 8867 Edgehill Road. Initially, observing his family’s routine felt like a comforting exercise in nostalgia, as the artist had struggled to define himself the first few years away from home. In 2016, Ireland returned home more often not long after an accident that left his mother permanently brain damaged. The images in this series are moments in time, separated by 10 years that show the daily patterns and rhythms of life that do not necessarily change, but adapt to alterations in the family dynamic.

Ordinary Time by Chris Ireland will open to public at Fort Worth Community Arts Center on April 6, 2018, through April 28, 2018. Opening reception will be on April 6, 2018; 6-9pm. For more information about this exhibition, please visit http://www.fwcac.com/?exhibition_detail/5756

[Art Exhibition]Thus, We Scatter, as We Go by Nathan Porterfield

Fort Worth Community Arts Center is proud to present, Thus, We Scatter, as We Go by Nathan Porterfield. The exhibition date is March 2, 2018-March 29, 2018, from 9AM-5PM. The closing reception will be on our Spring Gallery Night, March 24, 2018, from 6PM-9PM.

Nathan Porterfield’s current work involves individual identity in current culture, in reference to American history. Using accessible, common materials, he creates a confluence of patterns to imply the intersection of countless sensibilities and convictions. The imagery has developed recently into portraits, or sorts, in which the subjects (Units of Resistance) express their perspectives.

Nathan’s works are an homage to those, oppressed and repressed who have stood for change and therein been the backbone of progress. His works are portraits of personal individuality, yet homogeneous spirit.

Thus, We Scatter, as We Go is a survey of his production from 2015 and 2016, with a concentration on alternative materials and exploring the subtleties of evolving society.
