Darlia Hobbs Experimental Painting Exhibit opens June 2 in Fort Worth

DarliaPaint can Fly

“Paint Can Fly – VII” by Darlia Hobbs

June 2 – June 29, 2017

Reception: June 2, 2017; 6 – 9pm

Fort Worth Community Arts Center

Darlia Hobbs has traveled to more than 14 countries and 10 oceans/ seas finding eclectic influences for her mixed-media, experimental, and abstract art. Since I began painting, the world of art has been like a rushing river as I stand on the shore and watch it flow by. It’s difficult to take my eyes off of the beautiful, ever-changing flow of ideas, art, and inspirations I see at different depths in the water. The temptation to touch and plunge into the water is irresistible. Once in the water, the feeling is so soothing and satisfying – yet does not quench my thirst for more.

Instinct and experimentation guide me through the process of each piece of art. Often, I dream of new ideas and variations of techniques I’ve seen or tried. What’s truly amazing and rewarding is the friendships of other artists and their willingness to share ideas and techniques. This allows each of us to choose many bright stars from across the art universe to create and evolve our own evergrowing and changing galaxy.

I like to remember some wisdom from artist Ellen J. Langer: “…rules often blind us.” And, “Once we learn how to do something, too often we stop experimenting, learning, and having fun.” NOT ME!

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.
