Opening Reception:
Saturday, January 21, 2017

Fort Works Art is pleased to announce This is the Fort, an exhibition featuring 10 local artists – Bernardo Vallarino, Carey Meiners, Clay Stinnett, Collin Howell, Jay Wilkinson, John Worley, Lee Hill, Leigh Ann Williams, Marshall Harris and Patricia Murphy.

This is the first time since the gallery has brick-and-mortared that they have presented a group exhibition featuring solely DFW artists. Coinciding with Fort Worth’s Annual Stock Show & Rodeo, Fort Works Art takes a turn towards the west, but with their typical twist, that is far from traditional.  Focusing on the theme that the gallery takes its’ name from, Fort Worth, This is the Fort brings a strong and fresh roster of artists together for a show that will feature images that all Texans will relate to.

The Modern Presents FOCUS: Stanley Whitney

Stanley Whitney

Jan 21, 2017 – Apr 02, 2017
Stanley Whitney investigates the intricate possibilities of color and form in the realm of abstract painting. Since the mid-1970s, Whitney has been known for his multicolored, irregular grids on square canvases. Taking the essentialist grid of minimalism as his cue, his configurations are loose, uneven geometric lattices comprised of vibrant stacked color blocks that vary in hue, shape, and the handling of the paint. Whitney also utilizes color as subject, and his paintings often refer to literature, music, places, and other artists, connections that are bolstered in his titles.


 

The FOCUS series is organized by the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth for the Director’s Council, a group that supports acquisitions at the Museum. The series features three solo exhibitions annually, organized by Assistant Curator Alison Hearst. FOCUS exhibitions are open to the public and are included in general museum admission: $10 for adults; $4 for seniors (60+) and students with identification; free for children 12 and under; free for Modern members.
  
Since the mid-1970s, Stanley Whitney has investigated the intricate possibilities of color and form in the realm of abstract painting. Whitney’s signature style features multicolored, irregular grids on square canvases. Taking the essentialist grid of minimalism as his cue, his configurations are loose, uneven geometric lattices comprised of vibrant stacked color blocks that vary in hue, shape, and the handling of the paint. Whitney also utilizes color as subject, and his paintings often refer to literature, music, places, and other artists, connections that are bolstered in his titles.
Working without preparatory materials, Whitney combines balance and intuition in his approach to painting, as each color block is painted sequentially in relation to the ongoing arrangement. This process is expressive, improvisational, and can be linked to jazz, which continually inspires the artist. As Whitney has stated, “The way that it’s a little offbeat, polyrhythmic; the way that things move. Nothing’s straight. Nothing’s regular. Everything’s a little crooked. And I think that’s really what comes out of the music. It comes out of the beat, it comes out of how people walk, the way people wear their hat, just a little off. I think about all of those kinds of things and want them in the painting.”
FOCUS: Stanley Whitney features new work by the artist, including three large-scale paintings.
Stanley Whitney was born in Philadelphia, and lives and works in New York and Parma, Italy. He earned a BFA from Kansas City Art Institute and an MFA from Yale University. Whitney has exhibited across the globe, having held solo exhibitions at The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York; Lagorio Arte Contemporanea, Brescia, Italy; Architettura Arte Moderna, Rome; Omi International Arts Center, Ghent, New York; University of Dayton, Ohio; University of Rhode Island, Kingston; Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia; Anderson Gallery, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond; and the Brooklyn Academy of Music, New York. Whitney was in the 50th Venice Biennale. He has also been included in many group shows at such venues as the Camden Arts Centre, London; American Academy in Rome; Contemporary Arts Museum Houston; University of Chicago; Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, Missouri; and the Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach. His prizes include the Robert De Niro Sr. Prize in Painting, American Academy of Arts and Letters Art Award, and a Guggenheim Fellowship.
 
The Director’s Council
The Director’s Council was formed in 1985 and supports the Modern with an annual acquisition for the permanent collection. The Director’s Council sponsors the FOCUS series, which presents three solo exhibitions organized each year. Each exhibition opens with an exclusive cocktail reception for the Council, giving the members an opportunity to meet the featured artist and discuss his or her work. One piece by each artist is chosen by the Museum director and curator to be part of the final selection voted on at the Council’s Purchase Meeting each May. This format provides members with an in-depth understanding of the Modern’s acquisitions process and offers a spirited and popular series of events. The annual dues, $600, include all the benefits of an Associate/Family-level membership and invitations to exclusive Director’s Council events.

“Duets: A Comparison of Realities” extended through January 14

duets2

Duets has been extended until January 14, 2017 at FORT WORKS ART. After a successful showing at Scope Miami we have extended Duets for your viewing pleasure. Please stop by and visit us in the New Year!

Duets challenges the viewer to both compare and contrast the artists that have been paired together. Recognizably similar in visual language, there are also visible differences that can be noted between Lauren Childs and Alonsa Guevara; Riley Holloway and Tim Okamura; and finally Dan Lam and Sergio Garcia.

Lauren Childs and Alonsa Guevara are most recognizable for their affinity for color and texture throughout their paintings, as well as the way in which they paint. Between Riley Holloway and Tim Okamura they share a likeness for touching on cultural issues and highlighting historically left out people in their portraits. Dan Lam and Sergio Garcia are the most recognizably different, but it is their process, techniques and materials that share similarities. These are clearly different artists but to see their work together heightens the viewer’s awareness of distinctions between the works.

Artists include: Lauren Childs, Sergio Garcia, Alonsa Guevara, Riley Holloway, Dan Lam and Tim Okamura.

Saturday, December 10th from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The Cowtown Indie Bazaar is an annual handmade and vintage show produced by North Texas M.A.D.E., Inc.

http://www.cowtownindiebazaar.com/

Admission: Admission is free.

Location: Round Up Inn (downstairs) in the Amon G. Carter Exhibits Center, directly across the street from the Museum of Science and History.  The Exhibits Center is part of the Will Rogers Memorial Center complex located in Fort Worth’s Cultural District.

Parking: Will Rogers Memorial Center charges a nominal fee for parking. For more details, please link with the official website and FAQ’s. (See Map Below)

The event started in the fall of 2010 and was quickly followed by a spring event in 2011. The first shows were coordinated by the Etsy Fort Worth Team leadership, however there was a change in leadership soon after, and the Cowtown Indie Bazaar was put on hold until 2014 when North Texas M.A.D.E. took over the organization and brought this amazing handmade shopping event back to life.

From the latest edition of 360 West: “Near & Far & Up & Down flips expectations by showing the paintings and mixed-media works of a well-known photographer alongside the photography of a well-known painter. New Fort Worth resident William Greiner’s photography has been seen in major museums from coast to coast; Fort Worth native Nancy Lamb’s bright paintings reveal a refreshingly off-kilter perspective on social events. See a new side of both in their joint exhibit.”  Laura Samuel Meyn.

Jim Stewart Demo Nov. 21 for Society of Watercolor Artists

swalogo2015

Our next SWA meeting is November 21 at 7pm with Jim Stewart as our demo artist.

The Society of Watercolor Artists meets every third Monday from September through May.   (6:30 critique by Jo Williams; meeting at 7pm) Location: University of North Texas Health Science Center, Bldg. 2 – Everett Hall, Fort Worth, TX 76107. Directions.  website: http://www.swawatercolor.com/

About Jim Stewart:

James (Jim) Stewart, is a retired architectural designer in the commercial real estate development business, who has had a passion for painting since the late 1950’s.  After high school he served six months active duty in the US Army, then enrolled at McMurray College in the spring of 1962.  As an art major he became a muralist, ‘plein air’ and studio painter working in all mediums.  In addition he served as the college Gallery Master, student assistant to the Department Head, was a volunteer assistant with the Abilene art museum, and was a commercial advertising artist for the local Channel 11 television studio.  He was twice awarded in collegiate division art shows.  His mural “Texas Under Six Flags” still remains in the J. Rollins Library at McMurray.

Jim’s professional career was centered in Dallas where he served as VP of Architecture for the Vantage Companies ’67 –

’77, Projects Design and Development  Manager for the Collins – Ridnour  Company ’78 -’83, VP of Project Design and Development for Centre Development ’83 -’92 and Partner-VP of Development for Champion Partners ’93-’03.  Throughout his professional career he kept his interest in painting by producing commission works and golf related illustrations, however this took a backseat to competitive golf, tennis, racquetball, and motocross racing.  In retrospect he muses, “I should have spent more time painting, as I never received an injury from a paint brush”.

After retiring in mid-2003, he and his wife and some close friends, moved to Lake Chapala, Mexico, which lies just south of Guadalajara, where they lived until returning to Texas in December of 2008.   In addition to being an avid golfer, Jim reignited his passion for painting in 2010 and received Best of Show in his first juried event.  To date, he has been awarded and accepted into thirty five juried invitational, open,  and national exhibitions.  He is currently a Signature Member of the International Society of Acrylic Painters, a Signature Member of the Society of Watercolor Artists, and is a member the Lake Granbury Art Association, and the Pecan Plantation Art Guild.  He has won six Best of Show Awards, three Peoples’ Choice Awards and numerous Jurors’ and Meritorious Awards.

Stewart has studied with such Texas notable artists as Robert Miller, Bud Biggs, Jim Jones, Carol Collier,  Naomi Brotherton, and Scott Myers.  He is an awarded traditional painter who is rigid in conforming to the ‘fundamental principles of art’, and believes the success of a painting is found in its composition, accuracy, dramatic impact, and most importantly public appreciation.  Of his Peoples’ Choice Awards, he states “these are my most artistically fulfilling accomplishments”.   In the future he hopes to study with other traditional painters and believes that “the learning curve is proportional to the effort one makes to excel”.

DUETS: A Comparison of Realities at Fort Works Art

duetslogo

Exhibition: November 15 – December 30

Opening Reception: November 19 from 6-9PM

FORT WORKS ART will open Duets a Comparison of Realities on November 15, 2016. The exhibition will feature Tim Okamura, Sergio Garcia and Alonsa Guevara, artists with international credentials, superior talent and global recognition. Riley Holloway, Dan Lam and Lauren Childs will exhibit new works created for this visual conversation between their contemporary kinsmen.

Three pairs of artists will reveal, compare and contrast their ideas of art making. The various styles and concepts incorporated in the show are united through each artist’s provocative voice, the way they handle materials and the statements they choose to create.

timokamura

Tim Okamura and Riley Holloway are figurative artists that depict the power of women, minority populations and family. Okamura is a contemporary painter that paints his subjects in urban settings and uses a combination of graffiti and realism. Okamura has a long list of achievements that include commendation by United States Vice President Joe Biden, placement in the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery and finalist in the Outwin Boochever award for Portraiture.

rileyholloway2

Riley Holloway creates portraits on oil and wood panel. His distinctive style combines loose brushstrokes, charcoal, text and texture. He developed his signature style while working in Florence. In 2012 he completed an art residency with the Fairmont Hotel in Dallas and was a finalist in 2015 for the Hunting Prize.

sergiogarcia6

Sergio Garcia and Dan Lam are sculptors contrasting the link between reality and ambiguity. Garcia’s recent figural work is convincingly realistic and unsettlingly funny. The technical fluency of Garcia’s work and symbols never seize to conjure up questions of how and why.

danlam

Dan Lam, a millennial artist with soaring popularity recently closed “Coquette” at Fort Works Art that featured 90 pieces of sculpture. Her foam and resin pieces were developed while pursuing an MFA at Arizona State University. Lam’s art has been published twice in New American Paintings and featured on Insider.

alonsaguevara2

Alonsa Guevara and Lauren Childs are painters that understand and represent the cycles of nature and life in their work. Each of these women began art making at the age of 12. They each developed hyperbolic attributes, pushing the boundaries of color and texture.

Alonsa Guevara’s seven years of living in the Ecuadorian jungle is the source of ceaseless inspiration that manifests in lush depictions of nature through a vivid palette. Guevara was recognized with the New York Academy Art Fellowship in 2014 and named Time Out New York’s five most important new artists.

Lauren Childs is an award-winning artist with work that is published and shown throughout Texas and New York. Childs was a winner of the Siglo de Oro International Competition and was most recently a finalist in the show “Face It: Brooklyn,” juried by Managing Editor of ARTnews, Annette Rose-Shapiro. Her work continues to explore issues of the human condition. Childs is the owner of Fort Works Art. Her days are spent painting, developing shows for the gallery and inspiring a new generation of artists.

Arts Goggle festival Oct. 8 in Fort Worth

artsgoggleoct8

Saturday, October 8
| Noon to 10pm
 Join us as we celebrate the 14th anniversary of ArtsGoggle, 
the Near Southside’s most beloved community arts event.
 
500+ ARTISTS | 50 BANDS | 15 BLOCKS
      FREE EVENT
This fall, Fort Worth’s Near Southside will transform its streets, sidewalks and businesses into a one-day art experience like no other.  Celebrating it’s 14th year, ArtsGoggle is a popular festival of local arts in Fort Worth’s Near Southside, an eclectic neighborhood of historic elegance and urbanism. 
 
FREE TO THE PULIC
ArtsGoggle is free to the public, with no wristbands, tickets, admission costs.  Unlike many popular for-profit events in Fort Worth, ArtsGoggle is produced by a not-for-profit community organization and thus has no need to produce revenue.  Instead, the event is exclusively focused on creating an environment to appreciate and celebrate the arts.  All funds raised for the event will be dedicated to producing a memorable and successful experience for artists, venues and patrons of all ages.
artsgoggleoct2016

Park Place Village’s Gallery at Goggle features fine art and gallery-quality artists inside each of the participating businesses in Park Place Village.  Participating businesses range from a windows and doors retailer to restaurants, a co-working space to a music school.  In support of the Fort Worth arts community, these businesses clear their walls, rearrange furniture, and transform their traditional work environments into a gallery space dedicated to displaying the work of ArtsGoggle artists.  Venues receive no compensation for hosting artists; in fact, the Park Place Village businesses go to great expense to become a venue, with many opening during off-hours and making adjustments to their spaces to accommodate artists.  This unique partnership between business and artist is a distinctive feature of ArtsGoggle, and furthers the conversation about the importance of art in our everyday environments.  GALLERY at GOGGLE will also include an outdoor street festival for artists and stage with live music and performance art throughout the festival.

 

Magnolia Village Takes it to the Street In addition to Gallery at Goggle, ArtsGoggle hosts an outdoor street party spreading more than 14 blocks across the Magnolia Village. The street festival closes Magnolia Avenue to car traffic from 8th Avenue to Hemphill Street and fills the street with more than 500 visual artists showcasing their works and 4 stages with music and performance art of all varieties.

Music on Magnolia will be cranking out tunes from local favorites

  • The Rahr & Son’s Brewing Company Stage at 8th Avenue will feature cow punk rockersHoly Moly, pop masters The Hendersons, Fort Worth Weekly’s 2016 Best Live Band Animal Spirit, the genuinely addictive sounds of  VVOES, and Dallas indie legends The Deathray Davies.
  • Tarrant County College stage at Avoca Coffee will feature musicians from of the Fort Worth Symphony and the best of Fort Worth’s singer songwriters including Kevin Aldridge,Jacob Furr, Christa Russell, Luke McGlathery, Darrin Kobetich,Alex Rhea, and Wayne Floyd. An acoustic performance from headliner Joe Gorgeous at 9:00pm closes the show.
  • The FWADA & Chimera Brewing Stage at SiNaCa Studios will offer an eclectic mix of world music and funky favorites including pop violinist Zuriek Merek, the billowing sounds of bagpipes from Scottish Pipe and Drums, Americana band The Phantom Sensation, rhythm rockers Trái Bơ, and an epic ending with an alt-country throw down from Vandoliers.
  • The Chat Room stage brings the rock with an all-star line up to include folk favorites Telegraph CanyonWar PartyGollay, Un Chien, Mills & Co. and The Unlikely Candidates.

Performances on Park Place 

Music Junkie Studios Stage is throwing down the gauntlet with a stellar line up of reggae, blues, jazz and funk-rock performances.  Not to miss moments include silt walkers from Amphibian Stage productions throughout the day, the UNT Jazz Trio at 4:00pm, and Bandaoke, karaoke with a live full band to back you, from 8:00pm to 10:00pm.

 

Art Tooth: Public Printing Project Art Tooth is a newly established hybrid art gallery representing emerging and mid-career contemporary regional artists.  Staying true to their “pop up gallery” concept, Art Tooth will offer ArtsGoggle patrons an opportunity to “cut their teeth” on building an art collection in a one-day ArtsGoggle installation called Public Printing Project.  An outdoor gallery will host 10 large-scale works by celebrated local artists.  The pieces are each valued at $1,000-$5,000 dollars.  Each artwork will have 100 limited edition signed prints available for purchase, prices ranging $10-$50, during ArtsGoggle.  After all prints are sold, one lucky print-purchaser will be randomly selected for each piece as the winner of the original artwork.

EVENT PRODUCER
ArtsGoggle is presented by Near Southside, Inc., the non-profit redevelopment organization working to revitalize this important urban neighborhood, in partnership with our sister organization Historic Southside, Inc.  The event has regularly drawn crowds of 7,000-10,000 and in 2015 experienced incredible growth with a crowd estimated at 30,000 attendees filling the streets with visitors of all ages.  The scene is a wonderfully pleasant testament to the community spirit that fills the Near Southside.
ArtsGoggle is an expansion of Near Southside Inc.’s efforts to promote the Near Southside and build the community fabric essential to our continued development.  Since our founding in 1995, NSI has led development and promotional initiatives that have successfully transformed the Near Southside into one of the region’s most distinctive and vibrant urban districts.  Signs of NSI’s 20-year revitalization effort are evident throughout the district, perhaps most apparent along Magnolia Avenue, S. Main Street and Park Place Avenue, home to the city’s most eclectic selection of locally-owned restaurants and pubs.
