MAIN ST. FORT WORTH ARTS FESTIVAL BRINGING THE “ART AND SOUL” OF TEXAS TO DOWNTOWN FORT WORTH FOR 33RD YEAR ON APRIL 19-22

Texas’ largest arts festival will bring together thousands in attendance to experience the finest in arts, music, food and culture

 

FORT WORTH, TEXAS (February 12, 2018) — MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival (MAIN ST.) will hit the streets of Downtown Fort Worth on April 19-22, 2018, for its 33rd year, bringing together tens of thousands of people to celebrate the sights, sounds, and tastes of the highest-ranking arts festival in Texas. Spanning more than 27 city blocks from the Tarrant County Courthouse to Sundance Square Plaza to the Fort Worth Convention Center, MAIN ST. will feature 223 juried artists from across the U.S., chart-topping entertainers, authentic Texas cuisine, and arts-and-crafts activities for the whole family.

 

Ranked by the ArtFairSourceBook.com as #4 fine art event in the U.S., MAIN ST. has gained both local and national recognition year-after-year. The annual, free event is a three-time recipient of the “Grand Pinnacle” award and back-to-back winner of the “Zenith” award from the International Festivals and Events Association over the past several years. Last year, MAIN ST. received Fort Worth Magazine’s Best of Fort Worth “Readers’ Choice – Festival” award, and was listed as one of InStyle’s under-the-radar arts festivals you need to start planning for now.”

 

“MAIN ST. is one of Fort Worth’s most anticipated and well-attended events,” said Becky Renfro Borbolla, chairman of the Festivals and Events Committee for Downtown Fort Worth Initiatives, Inc. “It brings together people from all walks of life to our award-winning Downtown business district to celebrate incredible art and music in an urban setting.”

 

GET INFORMED

1,273 artists applied to exhibit this year, and only 223 were selected. Last year’s Best of Show-winner Marvin Blackmore and Best Emerging Artist-winner Matt Tumlinson will be returning, along with People’s Choice-winner Tai Taeoalii and other festival favorites. Approximately $4.6 million worth of art is expected to be sold across 15 mediums, including ceramics, jewelry, mixed-media, printmaking, digital, fiber, leather, painting, sculpture, drawing pastels, glass, metalwork, wood and photography. Over 25 aspiring local artists will also be featured on 3rd and 4th Streets, sponsored by Frost, with a focus on Texas art. For more information, visit “Fine Art Showcase.”

 

This year’s musical lineup features hundreds of performers across a variety of genres, ranging from country, rock ‘n’ roll, jazz, soul and R&B. Festivalgoers can enjoy musical performances on the UTA Main Stage and Sundance Square Stage, along with plenty of street performances throughout MAIN ST.’s “magnificent mile.” Headliners include folk music group Jamestown Revival, contemporary swing band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Latin Jazz ensemble Pacific Mambo Orchestra, Americana group Shane Smith & The Saints, and many more. For more information, visit “Music on MAIN.”

 

MAIN ST. attracts many of the region’s top culinary artists to the streets of Downtown, and features a wide variety of food and beverages, including crawfish, turkey legs, bratwurst, gourmet hamburgers, funnel cakes, frozen treats and more. Festivalgoers can also enjoy local, national and international craft beers in the “Craft Brew Pavilion” or wines by-the-glass in the “Wine Experience” tasting tent. For more information, visit “Culinary Arts.”

 

Also returning for 2018 is “MAIN ST. Creates!,” presented by Wells Fargo, an outdoor arts-and-crafts studio for children and families featuring balloon design, face paint, mural walls, jewelry, sand art, and more. Opening at 10 a.m. daily at the north end of the festival, “MAIN ST. Creates!” is also home to the Tarrant County College’s “Young People’s Art Fair,” showcasing art from more than 200 emerging, young artists. For more information, visit “MAIN ST. Creates!.”

MAIN ST. couldn’t take place without the tremendous support and dedication of more than 1,200 volunteers, sponsored by Frost. Volunteers assist with all festival operations, from hospitality to merchandise sales, and receive perks including free t-shirts, food and beverages, merchandise discounts, and more.

Out of Focus Artist Feature: Jesse Sierra Hernandez

Featured Artist: Jesse Sierra Hernandez

Out of Focus is on display until May 5, 2018

Fort Worth, TX—Jesse Sierra Hernandez is an accomplished Fort Worth artist whose work ranges from smaller works on paper to large-scale oil paintings, which depict religious icons, political themes and women, clothed and unclothed.

Hernandez has struggled with a stutter ever since he was a child and began drawing and painting to serve as a voice that didn’t require speaking. This voice grew louder as he began oil painting in 1992 and started to pursue themes of the human form, religion and social observations within a museum setting. Jesse is inspired by his personal convictions, plus admiration for Baroque artists. He was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. His work has been shown in over a dozen solo and group exhibitions, including Gallery 414 ‘Inside The Lines’ (2015).

He initially received his education in commercial art and studied under illustrator Don Punchatz from 1991 to 1995. In addition to painting, Hernandez is the Senior Preparator for the Kimbell Art Museum, a position he has held since 2001. Prior to that, he served as curator and art director for Fort Worth’s Studio 4 gallery and 7th Street Gallery.

Milan Gallery closing in Sundance Square March 31

Good evening Facebook friends! Seems like a rainy afternoon is an appropriate time to announce that AFTER 25 YEARS, this Saturday, March 31 will be our last day in Sundance Square.
Some of you may know we have been looking to relocate to Main Street in Grapevine, but unfortunately we have not been able to secure a location there yet (but are working on it) and our Sundance Square lease is ending. We will be open through Thursday, and will be moving remaining pieces into storage on Friday and Saturday. If you’ve been watching a particular piece of art, but haven’t made the purchase, now would be a great time to see what kind of a deal we can make you. The less inventory we have to move, the better.

We can’t say thank you enough for the support and friendship you have showed us over the years! Clients, artists, new friends and old friends that have known us since the beginning – sharing many shows, special events and personal milestones with our family and staff has given us endless memories to take with us.
We will still be able to get your artwork from Thomas Arvid, Bob Callender, Gabe Leonard and others – just give us a call.
Please stay tuned for our next chapter!

April 3
“The work’s a combination of radicalism and humanism,” she says. “When I stand in front of these paintings, it forces me to be there in a way I recognize as essential to my well-being.” 
Artist Roni Horn quoted in Howie Kahn, “Home Is Where the Art Is: The Ryman Family,”
Wall Street Journal, November 17, 2015
Courtney J. Martin, Deputy Director and Chief Curator at the Dia Art Foundation, presents “Encounters with Space, Depth and Distance: Robert Ryman, circa 20thC.” The American painter Robert Ryman is well known for his use of achromatic surfaces. Though his work is frequently read as white paintings, Ryman has been deeply engaged with a number of compositional concerns outside of hue or color for more than 60 years. In this lecture, Martin examines Ryman’s interaction with space, depth, and distance as questions of painting, rather than sculpture.
This Tuesday Evenings lecture draws on the 2015 – 2016 exhibition of Ryman’s paintings that Martin curated for the Dia Art Foundation. In a Wall Street Journal article of November 17, 2015, Martin comments on the Dia exhibition: “White is what everyone thinks of when they think of Ryman. I’m hoping we’ll disturb that.”

Adam Palmer: Sentimental Circus

In the FWA satellite gallery, Adam Palmer will show a series of abstract installations and drawings that are vibrant with fine lines of intentional color titled, The Sentimental Circus. Growing up in the 80’s in the small west Texas town of Monahans, Palmer used MTV, Nickelodeon and HBO as a form of escapism. These sources provide an aesthetic that he tries to portray in his work. In his latest body of work “The Sentimental Circus” Palmer has tried to capture certain periods in his life using the shapes, symbols and colors of that time.

11 Women Photographers – Chicks Who Shoot – March 24

The Eyes of 11 Texas Women

Tracy Costello, Shari Hunt, Rose Reyes, Nikki Sumrow, Kelle Moulton, Joyce Marshall, Heather Scott, Destiny Sosa, Debbie Collins, Camille Wheeler, Alicia Wells

The Grackle Art Gallery in Fort Worth is doing Spring Gal lery Night right with an All-Women Photography Show, celebrating 11 talented Texas Women Photographers.

The show, Co-Curated by local Texas photographers Kelle Moulton and Alicia Wells, will take place March 24 from 7-11pm.

The show explores the stereotype, the science and the psychology of how women photographers differ from their male counterparts.

The women in this exhibit all take very different types of photographs. They weren’t chosen based on their subject matter, their age, or even their years of experience. They were chosen because their photos grabbed our attention. Their photos engaged us, made us want to know more.

In talking to the women, they all had a story that was influencing their work. Stay-at-home-mother. Working two jobs. Divorced. Single parent. Journalist. College student. Starving artist. Retired. Teacher. Nurse. No one had the same story, or the same photos. Or even the same reason for taking their photos.

On March 24 you are invited to gaze into the eyes of their portraits, get lost in their sunsets, wonder at their macros, and in general celebrate the journey that has resulted in the work you will see in this collection.

This is a one-night-only, free event. Please make plans to stop by as you make the Spring Gallery Night rounds. Enjoy some: lite bites, sweet tunes, and a view of Texas through the eyes of 11 women who call Texas home.

Special thanks to the Grackle Art Gallery, Matthew J. Sacks, Linda Little and really everyone who has worked to make this happen. With very special thanks to Clint Niosi for coordinating the smooth acoustics of musicians: Amanda Hand, Rebecca Jozwiak, Deanna Valone.

Michael Holter watercolor demo for SWA March 19

NEXT MEETING Monday, March 19, 2018 . The Society of Watercolor Artists meets every third Monday from September through May..  Time: 7pm. (6:30 critique by Jo Williams) Location: University of North Texas Health Science Center, Bldg. 2 – Everett Hall, Fort Worth, TX 76107. For directions see website: http://www.swawatercolor.com/

Guest Artist: Michael Holter

Texas artist, Michael Holter works in both watercolor and oil. Michael’s work has received numerous awards and recognition and can be found in private and corporate collections in the US and several foreign countries. His current work in two categories: watercolor figurative and oil landscapes (both plein air and studio). Although Michael has been painting most of his life, his work experience spans a wide range of creative endeavors, from art teacher, creative director and businessman in fine art and commercial art. Michael has owned and operated two galleries. Michael holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Art Education and an MA in Visual Communication.

Michael is a signature member of The National Watercolor Society, The Transparent Watercolor Society of America, The Outdoor Painter Society, the Southwestern Watercolor Society and The Society of Watercolor Artists. He is also a member of the American Watercolor Society, the Portrait Society of America and the American Impressionist Society.

Michael says, “I think of my work as impressionistic. I like to represent people or places and allow the painting to evolve from the structure of what is recognizable. The challenge is to balance the care needed to make the representation interesting? and perhaps believable, with the freedom, looseness and painterly quality that makes painting so unique and expressive.”

“I have been influenced by artists such as Charles Reid, Richard Schmid, Burt Silverman, Frank Webb, John Singer Sargent, Ted Nuttall and many others. Even though I have an art degree, most of what I put into practice is self-taught through studying the work of these distinguished artists and much painting.”
“My wife, Cyndy, and I grew up in on the wide-open plains of North Dakota and arrived in Plano, TX by way of Minnesota (I can paint a snowy winter landscape with the best of ’em) prior to our east coast years in Virginia. We often travel enjoying the beauty of God’s creation.”

[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
