Urban Sketchers DFW: March 17 SketchCrawl at St. Patrick’s Cathedral

St Patrick’s Cathedral for a St. Patrick’s Day SketchCrawl!

This March our monthly outing falls on St. Patrick’s day!  We’ll meet at Bailey’s Barbeque located at 826 Taylor Street at 12:00 for lunch.  We’ll walk a couple blocks east to arrive at St. Patrick’s Cathedral at 1206 Throckmorton St, Fort Worth, TX 76102 arriving at 1:30 pm for 2 hours of sketching inside or outside the beautiful church.  We’ll reconvene at 3:30 in front of the Church to compare sketches and OOH and AAH.

There is FREE parking in Sundance Square Garage 3, located at 420 Throckmorton St. about 8 blocks away.  As well as FREE street parking on Saturdays (if you can find it).  Omni Hotel is located across from the Church; however there is a $22 daily parking fee.

Bring a friend, and if this is your first outing with us, welcome!  A sketch outing isn’t a class, workshop or competition.  It’s an opportunity for creative people to meet each other, draw together, and share their sketches with each other and online.

What are the rules?

1.  There are no rules.

2.  Anyone can participate, be it to draw for 20 minutes or the full scheduled time.

3.  Any level of ability is welcome, from veteran artists to first time sketchers.

4.  Bring your own sketching gear.  A hat and sunscreen are a good idea.

5.  Kids under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

If you have questions shoot me an email at ViningPaula@att.net.  Hope to see you there!.

Cordelia Bailey on Elm Street opens March 7 in Keller

“Photography is making art with pixels. When working in this medium, you have to find the essence of a scene and tell a story. The viewer, who is bombarded with images from life all day, needs to be captivated quickly. You must seize their eye before they move on.”

Cordelia Bailey on Elm Street, a photography exhibit highlighting some of Bailey’s more accessibly beautiful photographs, is on display from March 7 to April 27, 2018 at Elm Street Studio in Keller. Please join us for a closing reception and Artist’s talk on Friday, April 27th from 6:00 to 8:00pm. For details and to see more of Bailey’s work, visit www.ElmStreetStudioKeller.com.

Extra in the Ordinary: Sarah Graham Exhibition at Elm Street Studio

Elm Street Studio is proud to showcase the stunning watercolors of Sarah Graham in our January 2018 Solo Exhibition. Discover for yourself why her work has won international recognition and why her portraits are said to capture the spirit of a person. Grahams’ paintings are a response to “real life” challenges, in pursuit of deeper and perhaps more powerful realities – realities made more beautiful by the fact that they have been built on difficulties.

Her work will be on display from January 3 to March 2. Meet the artist in person at our Artist’s Reception, Jan 20 from 7-9pm. Complimentary wine and hor d’oeuvres will be served. A portion of art sale proceeds will benefit the Agape Clinic in Dallas. For more information, please visit www.ElmStreetStudioKeller.com

Amon Carter’s ‘Party on the Porch’ on Sept. 26


Amon Carter Museum of American Art Hosts ‘Party on the Porch’ on September 26

FORT WORTH, Texas—The Amon Carter Museum of American Art invites the community to Party on the Porch on Saturday, September 26 from 5–10 p.m. This free event marks the completion of the museum’s renovation project and includes live music, food trucks and art.

Guests can listen to three fantastic local bands, Quaker City Night Hawks, The Unlikely Candidates and Ginny Mac, and eat at a variety of food trucks, including Bellatrino, Central Market, Gypsy Scoops, Steel City Pops and Taco Heads. The Photo Bus, a vintage photo booth in an original 1966 Volkswagen bus, is coming to the Amon Carter as well, and drinks will be available for purchase from Bar Louie, who will have a full satellite bar on site. Special lighting effects throughout the evening will highlight the portico.

Ginny Mac kicks off the live music at 5:30 p.m. with a blend of country-and-western swing, Americana, hot jazz and international music. Next up are The Unlikely Candidates, a local indie rock band whose first single, “Follow My Feet,” spent 20 weeks on the Billboard Chart. Headlining the party is the four-man band Quaker City Night Hawks, whose hometown brand of southern rock combines Texas boogie, Memphis soul and heavy blues.

The extended gallery hours for Party on the Porch (until 9 p.m.) allow guests to visit their favorite Amon Carter artworks and go on a social media scavenger hunt. Docents will be on hand offering tours of the permanent collection and exhibitions.

Free parking is available at the UNT Health Science Center lot and east garage on Clifton Street (immediately north of the museum). For helpful information about Party on the Porch parking and accessibility, call 817.989.5030 or email visitors@cartermuseum.org. Visit the museum’s website for a schedule of events, and follow the hashtag #ACMparty on its social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) for updates. Please no pets or outside food or drink. The museum is pleased to recognize the Party on the Porch sponsors Meador Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram and Fort Worth Weekly.

The museum’s facade renovation began in February 2015 and included updating the glass panels and replacing the revolving front door. The new glass aids in art conservation, helps keep the gallery spaces temperate and gives visitors the ability to enjoy the downtown view from inside the museum without the barrier of shades. The new entryway allows all visitors, especially those with strollers and wheelchairs, to easily enter the museum.


“The completion of our renovation project marks a threshold moment in the museum’s history,” says Director Andrew J. Walker. “While glancing back at our history, we look forward to our future, affirming our commitment to the local community and transforming our footprint into a gathering space for all audiences.”
