A Message from our New Program and Exhibition Manager

Jonathan Mark Levy

Hello Texas Artist Coalition,
I am very excited for this upcoming year as we have many great exhibitions planned as well as some new ones in the works. For anyone who has upcoming show or exhibitions please share that info with me so that I can add it to the T.A.C. website.

Furthermore, a really great opportunity has come up with our partners 7th Street Development. As some of you know, they host an annual street Fair called Crockett Creates (formerly pARTy on Crockett) which falls on April 15th. This year, not only do they have approx. 25 outdoor spots available for Dallas-Fort Worth artists, they are also opening a store front on that block for additional indoor exhibitors. This is a 1 day event where they are expecting over 3000 people to attend. The best part is, it is only $5 to submit and $25 to participate. The deadline for submissions is 3/15/2017 but they are accepting early entries for promotional purposes so do not hesitate because spaces are limited. If interested or you know people who are, please submit here:  www.submittable.com

In addition to that, the Suicide Awareness Coalition (SAC) invites artists to submit conceptual proposals for an interactive artwork that will support the SAC mission: raising awareness about suicide in our community. The goal for this project is to create a creative platform for community engagement focusing on themes about suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention. The finished artwork will serve as a memorial to the thousands of individuals in our community who have died by suicide. The deadline for this is 3/17/2017. For more info on that please click here: SAC

ART7 Fall Gallery Night & Exhibition Opening

Join us for Fall Gallery Night on Saturday, September 10th from 6-9pm.

“Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.”  — Helen Keller

ART7 Community Gallery will present Somewhere in the Dark, an exploration of the other side of the light by 34 artists. Artworks in this exhibit may feature somber tones and monochromatic hues with moments of vibrancy amongst the colors of night. The participating works create a serene space; an artistic cathedral where viewers can consider the shadows in their own lives and the dual nature of the absence of light: the calm of darkness as well as its gravity.

FWCAC: OCTOBER IN THE ARTS CENTER

FWCAC focus

In the Spotlight

Charles Field and a Lifetime of Landscape

Although surrounded by Pop-Art and Abstract Expressionism in the 1960’s, Charles Field adhered to a style consistent with the Bay Area painters, where the figure emerged from a painterly space. In the late 70’s, he was converted to landscape by the view out his studio window. His subjects have ranged from the fringes of urban expansion to the vast space of West Texas, the Gulf Coast, the Tuscan hills, Nova Scotia, Ireland, the Northern California Coast, the Aegean Sea and New Mexico. 

 
Field, a native Californian, received his B.A. from Stanford University and his M.F.A. from the University of Washington. Before beginning his teaching tenure at UTSA in 1974, he was on the faculties of the University of New Mexico, the University of Texas at Austin, Western Illinois University and the American Institute for Foreign Study in London. He is a Fellow of the Ballinglen Arts Foundation in Ireland. He retired from UTSA in
CharlesFieldlandscape2002, after influencing hundreds of students with his expressive landscapes.
Field has had more than 20 solo exhibitions and numerous group exhibitions in the United States and abroad. His work is represented in many public collections including the McNay Art Museum, the SBC Center, USAA, McGraw-Hill in New York, Austin Museum of Art, Texas Instruments, Akin Gump L.L.P., Fulbright & Jaworski L.L.P., Texaco, Kronkosky Foundation, SBC Corporation and UTSA.

Reception: September 12, 2015 6-9pm

Sam Ivie: Meticulous Surfaces Exhibit Reception Aug. 7

Exhibit2

Fort Worth Community Arts Center is hosting a solo exhibit for the work of Sam Ivie. The exhibit features work in watercolor, oil and ink drawings created in a stippling technique. The exhibit runs from August 7th-29th, 2015. An opening reception for the exhibit is on Friday, August 7th, 6-9pm.

My work is a combination of invented imagery and various other visual references. The subject matter currently moves from figurative imagery to portraiture and some still life images of robot toys or cars. Although the subject matter shifts from one to the other, all three are related.

“Surface is one thing that connects all three forms of imagery. In both painting and drawing, I work in a meticulous manner which never fails to leave behind some evidence of pencil, pen or brush. This is only visible upon closer inspection, but subject matter and composition usually draw the viewer in.”
