Spring Gallery Night

Reception March 24th, 12 – 9pm
featuring three incredible exhibitions:

Out of Focus: Fabiola Valenzuela and Jesse Hernandez

My Eyes Are Up Here: Kate Stipp and Megan Van Groll

Adam Palmer: The Sentimental Circus

Exhibition runs March 21st through May 5th, 2018

Out of Focus

Artists Jesse Sierra Hernandez and Fabiola Valenzuela will utilize Fort Works Art gallery for an exploration of cultural identity titled Out Of Focus — through mixed medium representations that showcase Latinx roots, sociopolitics, and personal claims of culture. Out Of Focus unique installations and multi-faceted work poses a first generation perspective of displacement.

Jesse Sierra Hernandez, New York Hotel Room                Fabiola Valenzuela, Tu Que Sabes Pocha


My Eyes are Up Here

In the upper gallery, My Eyes Are Up Here showcases figurative artists Kate Stipp and Megan Van Groll. This exhibition will feature artistic revelations about the female experience, and the emotional, psychological, and cultural forces that shape the lives of women.


Kate Stipp, Constance                                                 Megan Van Groll, Crush

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

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.

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.
