April 25 

Richard Tuttle, often identified as a critical figure in the evolution of Conceptual and Minimalist art, has throughout his long and industrious career created a particularly varied body of work that actually eludes historical or stylistic categorization. Tuttle’s conviction to the contemporary, rather than the past or future, makes his every move unpredictable and as such, rejuvenating. It is understandable that his influence, while allusive, has been sought by every generation since his pioneering 1975 solo exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art curated by Marcia Tucker, who later founded the New Museum.
For this Tuesday Evenings presentation, Richard Tuttle discusses new work as seen in a few recent exhibitions, including Richard Tuttle: The Critical Edge at The Met Fifth Avenue;Richard Tuttle: 26 at Pace Gallery; Richard Tuttle at de Hallen Haarlem in the Netherlands; and Richard Tuttle: to The Night Sky of Lima at Museo de Arte de Lima. This new work, like that of the past, reflects the artist’s commitment to materials, his poetic approach to making art, and ultimately his faith in the fragility and beauty of the world.
Richard Tuttle, living and working in Mount Desert, Maine; Abiquiu, New Mexico; and New York, has been the subject of numerous major solo exhibitions, including a major traveling retrospective organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in 2005. In 2014, he exhibited in the Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall and, simultaneously, London’s Whitechapel Gallery presented Richard Tuttle: I Don’t Know. The Weave of Textile Language. Tuttle’s work has been featured in renowned international group exhibitions, including several Venice Biennales and Documenta exhibitions. He was the Artist in Residence at the Getty Research Institute in 2012/2013. In 2016 to 2017 he has had the above mentioned solo exhibitions in addition to several group exhibitions from New York to Edinburgh.

Many Hats/One Head – The Accidental Curator

Robert Storr is a painter who supported himself by sheetrocking, carpentry, and house painting, along with occasional art writing, when in 1990, with only an MFA in studio art, Storr was picked out of the chorus line by the newly appointed Kirk Varnedoe, Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, to be a curator in that same department. What followed was an eventful twelve-year run at MoMA, with his tenure ending as Senior Curator. Then there was a stint as the first Rosalie Solow Professor of Modern Art at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, as well as the overall directorship of the 2007 Venice Biennale, making Storr the first and, thus far, only US-born curator chosen for this role in the 112-year-old exhibition. All of this was followed by the deanship of the Yale University School of Art.
Still a professor of painting at Yale, for this Tuesday Evenings presentation Storr talks about learning on the job as a way of life during a period of extraordinarily complex, rapid, and far-flung changes in the “art world” — now a polycentric, culturally diverse, and ever-morphing economic and politic alternate reality — as well as the abiding values that draw people to art and into an “art community” primarily inhabited by makers of various kinds.
Robert Storr lives and works in New York. In addition to his posts at The Museum of Modern Art, New York University, Yale University School of Art, and his role as director of the 52nd Venice Biennale, Storr has curated and published catalogues for numerous exhibitions, including monographic shows on Elizabeth Murray, Gerhard Richter, Tony Smith, and Robert Ryman. In April 2016, Storr was awarded the insignia of Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French Ambassador to the US. As a renowned author and critic, he has been a contributing editor at
Art in America since 1981 and regularly contributes to exhibition catalogues and art publications such as ArtForum, Frieze, Parkett, Corriere della Sera (Milan), and Art Press.His most recent publication, Intimate Geometries: The Work and Life of Louise Bourgeois, was released on February 15, 2017.

”I am Laurie Goldstein-Warren and I live in West Virginia. I have been painting watercolors for sixteen years. Art has always been a part of my life. When I was young, ballet, tap and jazz dancing was my creative outlet. I was a dancer in the Rochester Academy of Performing Arts dance troupe until the age of 18. Later on my creative path took me to hair styling. I opened my own salon in New York and competed in fantasy hair competitions. I loved these particular shows because you had to create something never seen before, more avante garde than styles you would see on the street.

When I moved to West Virginia in 1998 and found myself in the countryside, I went back to one of my first creative loves, art. After many years of studying the art of watercolor with some fantastic teachers and mentors, I have been so fortunate to have found success in this field. My artwork has been shown all over this country and has been exhibited in Canada, China and Japan. I now enjoy teaching my workshops and jurying exhibits around the country. I found my voice in art… find yours….Create!

How To Publish Coloring Books For Fun & Profit

Attn: Artists!
Learn to Publish Your Own Coloring Book

Know an artist that could use additional income from their art?

One of the most astounding trends in books this century has been the boom of coloring book sales. And, according to experts and all the indicators, the sales trend is only going to continue growing bigger.

One reason for the popularity of coloring books is the expansion of art therapy and the use of coloring by stressed adults as a way to relax. So, the demand for new and different coloring books for adults is high.

The 33% – Artists from the Cultural District March 25

IMG_1058

Join us this Spring Gallery Night 2017 at the Grackle Art Gallery to experience art, culture, and live music. A mix of phenomenal local artists with works guaranteed to dazzle the senses will be showcased.

The majority of people who work at fine art museums are active artists. Museums are powered by artists.
The Grackle Art Gallery is hosting this show in honor and celebration of this truth. The idea for this show originated from staff at The Amon Carter Museum of American Art where we chose the theme Works on Paper and Photography to tribute the great Works on Paper and Photography collection that sets this museum apart in the Fort Worth Cultural District.

In creating this show, we are enriching the community of Fort Worth by promoting these local artists with a space to show work together.

This show has been curated by Allester Vinteers and Shane Green, both passionate and recognized local community artists.

We give special thanks to the folks at The Grackle Art Gallery for granting us the opportunity to use their space and to everyone else who’s helped us make this a reality!

This is a free event. Come join us to support the local Art Community.

FUN, FRESH, ALIVE and HERE!

*The show itself will be on view by appointment starting on the 19th of March. We are also having a Matinee the day after Gallery Night, Sunday, March, 26th from 12-3pm.

Here’s a list of the amazing musicians who will be playing live at our Art Show during Spring Gallery Night 2017!!!
*Swirve
*Canyon Kafer
*Jeff Dazey
We give special thanks to Clint Niosi for arranging this line up of awesome musical talent!

March 28

Places of a Present Past

Noah Simblist, a curator, writer, and artist, presents “Places of a Present Past:The Historiographical Impulse in Art Practice.” In this context, the artists that Simblist discusses act as historians. However, these artist-as-historians are “less interested in the truth than the way we feel through the legacies of past traumas. They reveal the oblique ways that we repress historical trauma, burying it in the very sites of their origin,” says Simblist. His talk focuses on a publication that he edited, Places of a Present Past,whichbrings together three exhibitions showcasing the work of video and new media artists working internationally that were presented at SMU’s Pollock Gallery in 2014, curated by Simblist and the Pollock Gallery’s 2014 curatorial fellow, Sally Frater. These exhibitions shared a common theme: addressing the traces of trauma on particular sites and paying close attention to the lasting impacts of war. The exhibitions explored in the publication include Jin-me Yoon’s Extended Temporalities; the group show Where Are You From?, which included artworks by Aissa Deebi, Kamal Aljafari, and Dor Guez recounting the story of the Israeli occupation of Palestine; and the Sarah Morris film 1972.

Noah Simblist is Chair and Associate Professor of Art at SMU’s Meadows School of the Arts. His artwork has been shown internationally; he has curated, co-curated, and co-produced exhibitions and events, including, most recently, New Cities Future Ruins in Dallas in 2016; and he has contributed to Art Journal, Modern Painters, Art Papers,Terremoto, Art Lies, Art Pulse, Art21, and other publications. He has contributed to and edited publications, including Beyond the Aesthetic and the Anti-Aesthetic and Public Servants: Art and the Crisis of the Common Good, and is in the process of editing a volume about Tania Bruguera’s The Francis Effect, a project co-produced by the Guggenheim Museum, the Santa Monica Museum of Art, and SMU.

Angelika Ejtel Solo Exhibition: Opening Reception | March 9 at ART7 Gallery

SOLO-EXHIBITION-POSTER

Fort Worth Community Arts Center presents: 

Angelika Ejtel: ‘And They Say Of Her Woman’


Please join us for the Opening Reception
Thursday, March 9, 6 – 8 PM

March 4 – March 22, 2017

Inspired by the poetry of a famous Polish poet H.  Poswiatowska, in this exhibition of self-portraits, Angelika Ejtel integrates the images that belong to her most feminine works. They encompass the motifs of dark love, never-ending longing and hidden desires. Woman and her intimate world(s) portrayed in the poems of Poswiatowska, takes the face and body of the artist in her photographs. This is just a tiny study of what womanhood is in its broad spectrum of meanings.

Bev Boren watercolor demo Feb. 20 for SWA

bevborenswa1

NEXT MEETING FEBRUARY 20th. The Society of Watercolor Artists meets every third Monday from September through May with the exception of January, because of MLK day.  Time: 7pm. (6:30 critique by Jo Williams) Location: University of North Texas Health Science Center, Bldg. 2 – Everett Hall, Fort Worth, TX 76107. Directions see website: http://www.swawatercolor.com/

Guest Artist: BEV BOREN

Bev Boren was born and raised in Texas and now resides in Trophy Club, Texas with her husband Ben.  She is a signature member of the Outdoor Painters Society and the Southwestern Watercolor Society.  She is also a member of the Oil Painters of America, American Impressionist Society, and American Watercolor Society.

Her work is primarily the result of her need to paint.  Inspiration can come at any time and in any place.  She is not confined to one subject area.  She loves  to paint a variety of subject matter as well as working in various mediums.  Bev’s paintings are created with things that capture her eye whether it’s a still life, landscape, or capturing a person’s personality.  Painting is her way of connecting with the world and the people around her and sharing those experiences along the way.

In her words “Trying to describe or explain my efforts at painting or drawing seems like a futile effort.  After all, I want my work to express itself without the necessity of words.  My best hope is that my work will stand simply on its own, and find a connection with viewers where words fail”.

For more about the artist, see her website http://bevboren.com/
