[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

Centrifugal Force by Robertus van der Wege

Robertus van der Wege is a storyteller who loves using a variety of materials to help in the storytelling process — Wood, stone, metal, and ceramic all lend varying permanence; textures, colors, and differing nuances to each story. The stories he likes to tell are stories of the human condition. In addition to that, he likes borrowing from these sources to create objects that become metaphors for today’s humanity and challenges.

Wege sees himself as an object maker whose work attempts to offer a new perspective on environment, art, history, and religion. The fact that some of these materials may be in found objects, or created as new forms, also lends to the story. Wege sought to create sculpture that has been engaging for young and old alike, and strives to have the viewer become more engaged with his work after their initial visual encounter. It is particularly rewarding for him when that experience is shared by more than one person, such as a parent with a child, or an experience among friends. This is one of the reasons that his work is often kinetic and invites human interaction. As Wege believes that many of the solutions to today’s problems exist within our collective human story.

Centrifugal Force by Robertus van der Wege will be on view March 2 – March 28, 2018. The closing reception will be March 24, 2018; 6-9 pm during our Spring Gallery Night at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center.

[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.

“OBLIVIOUS” by Patrick Mcgrath Muñiz

“OBLIVIOUS” by Patrick Mcgrath Muñiz

March 2 – March 29, 2018 

Reception: March 24, 2018; 6 – 9pm 

The work presented in OBLIVIOUS is Houston-based artist Patrick McGrath Muñiz’s response to the capitalist consumerist society with its apparent indifference to the rising threat of climate change. After experiencing Harvey in Houston, and witnessing Hurricane Maria passing over Puerto Rico and Irma in Florida, where most of his family and friends live, Muñiz feels the responsibility to tell the story of climate change the way he knows it. As an artist with a Roman Catholic background and growing up in the island of Puerto Rick, Muñiz has a deep personal interest in reconnecting with history by adopting Renaissance painting techniques and retablos reminiscent of Spanish Colonial Art in his painting, bridging historical continuity between the Colonial and the Neo-colonial narratives present in the Anthropocene, an epoch defined by the enormous impact of human activities on the Earth’s ecosystems.

Patrick McGrath Muñiz is an artist from Puerto Rico who currently exhibits his work across the U.S. and abroad while residing and working in Houston, Texas. His work consists primarily of oil paintings addressing current issues such as Neo-Colonialism and Consumerism. Patrick’s work can be found at the Albuquerque Museum in New Mexico, the Mesa Contemporary Art Museum in Mesa, Arizona, the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia, as well as a number of private collections in the United States, Caribbean, and Latin America.

Art Exhibition: The Landscape Architecture of Lawrence Halprin

Art Exhibition: The Landscape Architecture of Lawrence Halprin

Date: January 26 – February 19, 2018

Adress: Fort Worth Community Arts Center
1300 Gendy Street
Fort Worth, Texas 76107

Business Hours: 9 AM – 5 PM

The Landscape Architecture of Lawrence Halprin is a traveling photographic exhibition about the life and work of Lawrence Halprin (1916-2009), one of the nation’s most important and influential landscape architects. The exhibition, which debuted at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., is organized and curated by The Cultural Landscape Foundation, a Washington, D.C.-based non-profit. Created in 2016 during the centennial anniversary of Halprin’s birth, the exhibition features 56 newly commissioned photographs by leading landscape photographers of dozens of Halprin’s major works, ranging from recently rediscovered residential projects created early in his career in the 1950s to the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial in Washington, D.C. capstone projects such as the Yosemite Falls approach and Stern Grove in San Francisco; it also includes Heritage Park Plaza in Fort Worth. The exhibition both honors the influential designer and calls attention to the need for informed and effective stewardship of his irreplaceable legacy.

“Off The Grid” opens Jan. 5 at FWCAC

Fort Worth Community Art Center will open a new exhibit, “Off the Grid”, a series of light-hearted vignettes created from individual photographs of debris collected from Eagle Mountain Lake on January 5. The exhibit will be on view until Feb 15, 2018 and contains over thirty original pieces by local photographer Becky Wilkes.

During the drought of 2014, receding water levels unveiled hidden shorelines and abundant debris. During walks on the beach, Wilkes photographed the debris in situ, often not knowing what she was photographing until it was unearthed. Akin to ancient superstition, she felt that if she captured an object’s image, she was responsible for it. Dutifully, she pushed her wheelbarrow along the beach to assist in the removal of these items.

From the debris, Wilkes built digital collages, or “Grids”, to include each of the nearly 6000 items as they was found on the lakefront or rephotographed in the studio. Eventually, she began to explore other representations for the material and individual items fell “Off the Grid” into vignettes. Debris over time, combined with sun, wind and wave breaks apart into interesting bits of color, sometimes recognizable, sometimes not. Without being overly obvious and quite whimsical, the viewer is lead to consider the impact of bottles and other debris in our recreational areas.

With the abundant runoff of the May 2015 flood, and subsequent barrage of debris filling the lake, Wilkes began to understand the migratory nature of trash in our waterways flowing from our drainage ditches and roadways. Eagle Mountain Lake, while only 9 square miles in size, is fed by a watershed of over 800 square miles. “The painful reality is that by accidental or intentional action, the countryside is being inundated on a massive scale by the individual fingerprints of personal irresponsibility.”

Fort Worth Community Arts Center is located at 1300 Gendy Street, Fort Worth TX. Hours of operation are Tuesday through Saturday, 9AM – 5PM.

Becky Wilkes lives with her husband on Eagle Mountain Lake in Azle, TX. Educated as a Chemical Engineer at Texas A&M, she spent much of her life as a stay-at-home mother of four children who have now blessed her with a multitude of perfectly fantastical grandchildren. She continues her study of photography at the Northeast Campus of Tarrant County College.

Ruth A. Keitz: Silent Interiors That Speak opens Nov. 3

28 Harrison Avenue #3

 

The Fort Worth Community Art Center is pleased to announce a juried solo exhibition by Ruth A. Keitz from Los Fresnos, TX. The exhibition opens Friday, November 3, 2017 and runs until Wednesday, November 22, 2017. A reception honoring the artist will take place on Friday November 3, from 6 to 8 in the evening in Gallery 6 at 1300 Gendy Street, Fort Worth, 76107.

Ruth A. Keitz has been involved in art since elementary school. She participated in Saturday art classes at the Carnegie Institute in Pittsburgh, PA from fourth grade through high school. (Well known graduates of the Carnegie Institute program include Philip Pearlstein and Andy Warhol.)

However, it was her father who ran a part-time business painting lines for parking lots, crosswalks, and directional traffic arrows who claimed to have taught her how to paint while working for him summer nights. Perhaps there is more truth than fiction here considering the linear structure of many of her works and the recurring subject matter of night skies.

After graduating with a BA in art from Allegheny College in Meadville, PA, she went to the University of Texas at Austin to continue her education. She was a student of Kelly Fearing and Michael Frary. She completed her MFA in art education with a minor in studio art and a PhD in curriculum and instruction with a minor in studio art.

Her art explores the concept of linear perspective and the concept of the picture plan appearing to advance or recede. Her training in art history has influenced her art:

  • Renaissance linear perspective and the Renaissance concept of the picture plane as a window to the world with its perceived depth and space;
  • Baroque compositions that spill towards us from the picture plane.

The stuff of her art is as likely to be the discards of industrialization as the discards of nature. She enjoys the “thingness,” the uniqueness of objects and materials: texture, shape, color, contrast. All the work uses an extensive mix of found man-made and natural materials.

Her mixed media and collage works include series, such as, “Silent Interiors,” “Fragmented Box,” “Night Windows,” “Moonrise Rift,” “28 Harrison Ave,” “1601 Pine Hollow Road,” and “Doors with No View.”

Website: RuthKeitzArt.com includes a preview of the exhibition, “Nov. 3-22: Silent Interiors That Speak”


Artist’s Statement

Silent Interiors That Speak

My mixed media collages and constructions reflect my interest in the physicality of objects, their “thingness”: textures, shapes, colors. Regardless of the subject matter, message, or symbolism, all my work uses mixed media and often includes a variety of found objects. The stuff of my art is likely to be ropa usada or other man-made discards or the discards of nature.

“Silent Interiors That Speak” explores how we create a space/room where we live and where we work. The Silent Interiors include former classrooms where I have taught, former offices, views from rooms in my home, views of room in what was my sister’s home, and empty rooms in my childhood home.

HOW WE LOOK OUT OF A ROOM TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD

G-115 Classroom: views through the window of the classroom door, across the hall, through the window
of another classroom door, and through the window of that classroom to the outside.

LHSB 1.602 Classroom: the architectural view of the adjacent buildings would change depending on where I stood and the daily weather conditions; the sky, changing and unchanging; walls that were some days impenetrable and other days nonexistent; an entry door with a window that had no view; never determining the exact hue of the neutral white walls, sometimes warm sometimes cool!

View from the Studio: explores the same view which is never the same. Changes in seasonal or daily light create patterns of shadows that harmonize and contrast with the lattice covered pergola and the tile accent. My private patch of sky changes its color. Usually the varying patch of blue is empty, but sometimes I am startled by the glimpse of a fleeting airplane or a bird.

HOW THE OUTSIDE WORLD SPILLS INTO OUR SPACE/ROOM

Night Window: explores images of the darkened sky as seen by the naked eye and as revealed by the unconscious mind at night in dreams: sometimes the sweetly poetic and sometimes the omnia noctis (omens of the night).

Moonrise Rift: explores the sensuous texture of the sky and the
palpable quality of its blackness as the brilliant glow of the moon tears and tatters the fabric of night.

G-115 Classroom/Camera Obscura: examines the outside visual world spilling into the classroom. Like the tiny pinhole of the Renaissance camera obscura, the window of the silent, empty room floods the space with the inverted images of the outside world.

HOW PART OF US REMAINS IN A SPACE/ROOM AFTER WE LEAVE

PB1: remembering a shared office space that became an office only for me.

28 Harrison Ave: remembering the rooms of my sister’s home which are now silent.

HOW OUR MEMORY RESHAPES THE PAST OVER THE PASSAGE OF TIME

1601 Pine Hollow Road: looking back over the elapsed years to the spaces and rooms that shaped me.

EIGHT: Curated by Art Room opens Sept. 9

Artwork:
Tiger Hunting in Korea, Oil on panel, 16 x 20 inches, 2016

“EIGHT” 
On exhibit September 9 – 27, 2017 
With reception from 6 – 9 pm on Saturday, September 9th

Exhibited at the
Fort Worth Community Arts Center
1300 Gendy St
Fort Worth, TX 76107

http://fwcac.com


Art Room is pleased to announce its upcoming group exhibition “EIGHT” in conjunction with the Fort Worth Art Dealer’s Association’s Fall Gallery Night 2017. Exhibited at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, “EIGHT” represents the work of local, regional, and national artists, including Charis Ammon, Lauren Hana Chai, Alicia Eggert, Nathaniel Evans, Mariell Guzman, Jessica McClendon, and Melissa Mohammadi.

The artists featured in “EIGHT” transform their blank canvases – whether that be linen, paper, yupo, or the landscape – into rhythmic, gestural works that express a curiosity of self, time, and place. Through a narrative exploration of the personification of inanimate objects, Charis Ammon’s paintings consider the way in which borders and portals affect proprietorship. Her window blinds, fences, and walls bring about questions regarding one’s relationship with the “inside and outside world.” Lauren Hana Chai creates work using unconventional methodologies that include mixed media and oil on a variety of matrixes that reference her multicultural Eastern / Western upbringing. Her work reflects her own identity, as well as addresses taboo, feminism, sexuality, violation, and oppression. While using time and language as artistic materials, Alicia Eggert investigates the notion of absence and presence through an exploration of cycles, time, and weather. Her work questions the way one understands the past, present, and future in combination with the way one relates her or himself to time and experience.

“EIGHT” will run through September 27, 2017, at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center. Gallery hours are MondayFriday, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm. For additional information please contact Nathan Madrid, Katie Murray, or Deedra Baker at artroomfw@gmail.com, and visit our website www.artroom.space for more information about upcoming shows and to join our mailing list. An exhibition catalog will be available for purchase.
