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.

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.

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!.”

February 13
Ron Mueck’s hyper-real sculptures of the human figure are tender portrayals of people in their most intimate, isolated and vulnerable moments. Manchester Art Gallery on the 2008 ARTIST ROOMS exhibition featuring the work of Ron Mueck
Charlie Clarke, Ron Mueck’s long-time exhibition manager, is in conversation with the Modern‘s Senior Curator, Andrea Karnes as they discuss the work and career of Ron Mueck, from his first acclaimed sculpture, Dead Dad, to his most recent installation of 100 giant skulls, Mass, with a particular focus on the works in the Modern‘s exhibition Ron MueckAfter gaining international attention with Dead Dad in the controversial and popular exhibition Sensation in 1997, Mueck’s first one-person show was at Anthony d’Offay Gallery in 1998. As stated for a recent exhibition at the Sara Hildén Art Museum in Finland, “Mueck has since shown himself to be a major sculptor whose work elicits an immediate emotional response. . .. Mueck’s subject matter – for all its universality – is deeply private, concerning the unspoken thoughts and feelings of all human beings.”

For this Tuesday Evenings presentation, serving as a preview for the exhibition Ron Mueck, which opens February 16, Clarke relays stories of his experiences with the artist and sheds light on the processes and decisions that infuse Mueck’s extraordinary sculptures with an enduring quality that leaves viewers entranced.

February 20
 
Awareness can feel like a bright island in an ocean of namelessness. The unthought and the unseen wash the shores, leaching into the ground of the mind under sagging frames of reference. There is endless erosion of the coastline, a subversive give-and-take. Objects are soaked with feelings and their identities compromised. Abstractions are contaminated. 
“Land” in Land, ed. Carroll Dunham (New York: Nolan/Eckman Gallery, 1989). Reprinted in Into Words: The Selected Writings of Carroll Dunham
Carroll Dunham, an important New York-based artist working in painting, drawing, and printmaking, discusses his practice, from coming into his own in the late 1970s to his current contributions as a maker and a writer within the continuum of art. Known for a conceptual approach, which includes aspects of abstraction and representation, Dunham is admired, especially by fellow artists, for his authentic and unyielding pursuit of consequential artworks. The artist Paul Chan confirms this admiration in his Publisher’s Foreword for the recently released book Into Words: The Selected Writings of Carroll Dunham: “I have admired Carroll Dunham’s work for many years. I still remember vividly his painting in America Is Hard to See, the inaugural exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art’s new building in 2015. When I entered the room where it hung, I gasped. The painting was at once exuberant, provocative, and entrancing. It literally took my breath.”
This Tuesday Evenings presentation is a special opportunity to hear from one of contemporary art’s most imperative voices and gain insights into a career that developed through a sensitivity to the past, an astute awareness of the present, and a personal insistence on making what needs to be made.

[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.

Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth 2018 Advanced Exhibition Schedule

January 27 – March 18
Nina Chanel Abney’s paintings are visually frenetic, reflecting the fast-paced energy of life today. Her imagery refers to such diverse subjects as pop culture, world events, and art history in compositions with flattened, simplified forms. Abney’s works commonly incorporate snippets of text, disembodied figures and silhouettes, and geometric abstract shapes. Themes that relate to American society, including celebrity culture, race, sexuality, and police brutality, are broached in her paintings. By touching on serious subjects in a colorful palette and graphic style, Abney’s work is, as the artist states, “easy to swallow, hard to digest.”

In 2007, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth hosted Ron Mueck, featuring the artist’s figures that are extraordinarily realistic, except in scale – they are always depicted much smaller or larger than life. The exhibition broke attendance records for the Museum as Mueck’s stunning works became a must-see for visitors from across the region. Now a decade later, Ron Mueck returns to the Modern  for a special project showcasing six major works created between 2008 and 2018, including two sculptures making their North American debut.

March 31 – June 17

Spanning painting, sculpture, collage, and installation, Kamrooz Aram’s work investigates the complex relationship between Western modernism and classical non-Western art. By highlighting their formal connections, he reveals the typically downplayed role that non-Western art and design have had in the development of modernism and its drive toward abstraction. Challenging the traditionally Euro-centric narrative established by art history, Aram’s work sets forth to disrupt this perceived hierarchy by merging and equalizing Western and non-Western forms. The artist will present all new work for this exhibition.

Known for his collaborations with pop icon Kanye West and fashion house Louis Vuitton, and for vibrant anime-inspired characters, Japanese artist Takashi Murakami blurs the boundaries between high and low culture, ancient and modern, East and West. Organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, this major retrospective features 50 paintings that span three decades of Murakami’s career, from the artist’s earliest mature works to his recent, monumentally scaled paintings.

The exhibition shows how Murakami’s art is rooted in traditions of Japanese painting and folklore, and highlights the artist’s careful attention to craft and materials. It also showcases his astute eye for the contemporary influences of globalization, media culture, and the continued threats of nuclear power.

October 14 – January 27
The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth presents a major survey of works by Laurie Simmons, organized by Andrea Karnes, senior curator, with full support of the artist. This exhibition will showcase the artist’s photographs spanning the last four decades, from 1976 to the present, a small selection of sculpture, and two films.
Simmons’s career-long exploration of archetypal gender roles, especially women in domestic settings, is the primary subject of this exhibition and is a topic as poignant today as it was in the late 1970s, when she began to develop her mature style by using props and dolls as stand-ins for people and places.

Jan. 22 SWA Meeting: Nancy Maas demonstration

NEXT MEETING Monday, Jan. 22, 2018 . 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. For directions see website: http://www.swawatercolor.com/

Guest Artist: NANCY MAAS

Find out more about Nancy at her website: https://nmaas.com

In the words of the artist:

Painting provides a great deal of pleasure in my life, with a small dose of stress if things aren’t turning
out as I hoped. My Texas home studio is a dedicated space in which I can get as dirty as I like. There are
two “stations”, one for watercolor and the other for acrylics (a large easel serves both). I tend to be
rather free with paint as I start a new work, especially with acrylics, so the room is looking the part after
five years of throwing color spontaneously. Our dog Charle is my constant companion in the studio,
along with NPR (music only; no news) and a Diet Dr. Pepper.
I like to work a few hours at a time, starting in the morning and sometimes continuing in the afternoon. Break time consists of everything from lunch to walking the dog or biking with a friend, running an errand or going to the Y. I find if I leave an unfinished painting and come back after a time away, I can better see what needs to be done next. A mirror in my studio also helps, plus critique sessions, like SWA’s which I am determined to take better advantage of, and Tony Saladino’s which meet a few times a year.
In response to a question about good advice received, I would have to say that Randy Meador’s rule of putting down a good wash of fresh color, followed by LEAVING IT ALONE, is my first commandment
(which, sad to say, I often break). Also, Tony Saladino urges us to SIMPLIFY, which is especially
relevant to me in acrylics where I am constantly paring down an image (Let’s just say I don’t often bring
my watercolor weavings to his meetings). These two principles can keep me going for years. Otherwise,
as someone who always loved art but didn’t take a fine arts degree, books about watercolor masters like
Winslow Homer and John Singer Sargent inspire me and can provide help in solving a problem.

As to mechanics, I use a baseline of Winsor & Newton paints, plus a few Daniel Smith’s (quinocridone
burnt orange), Holbein “opera”, and a few others. Sometimes I resort to white gouache to retrieve
whites, but only very sparingly. Critical brushes include several of the Silver Black Velvet synthetics, a
one inch flat, and, perhaps surprisingly, some larger “Simply Simmons” rounds. Now that my teaching career and the responsibilities of raising a family are in the past, I can paint at will – a privilege I almost feel I don’t deserve. In Spanish the word for retired is “jubilado/a”, suggesting a state of joy. That’s me now!

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.
