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/

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.

Existing somewhere between a gallery, a cultural center and a museum, Fort Works Art strives to continually evolve into its’ own entity, free from the traditional labels of the art world. They exist to support the arts, to give back to the community and to inspire youth.

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.

We’ve got the time and  s p a c e.

All we need is you.

Equal consideration will be given to emerging and established artists alike, so dream big!
Ultimately, ART7 wants to showcase the creation process from conception to communal collaboration to the finished product. Art is an evolution that takes time, and more than anything, we want to expose the community to that process. This is the time to have a meaningful and multi-layered cultural exchange between people of all manners.
Come tell your story.

Opening Reception | Thursday, December 8, 2016 | 5:00pm to 8:30pm

Exhibition on Display | December 8, 2016 – February 4, 2017

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.

#Near&Far&Up&Down Social Media Contest!
Join us Thursday, December 8th from 5:00 – 8:30 to participate in our Social Media Contest for a chance to win original artwork!
