[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.

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.

Photography Exhibit: And They Say Of Her Woman| Angelika Ejtel

Angelika_Ejtel_On The Edge of Passing_PROM_pic 5

The Fort Worth Community Arts Center is pleased to announce the opening reception for self-portrait photographer Angelika Ejtel’s exhibition “And They Say Of Her Woman”.

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.

Angelika uses herself as a subject for her images. She considers her photographic creation as a poetic experience in which she drowns and infuses herself and, as a result, it gives her the feeling that she is reborn with each portrait into a new being. Although, all of her photographs are self-portraits, they shouldn’t be necessarily read as self-presentations, rather they should be revealed as the multiplicity of “selves” available to one individual. To put it succinctly, her attitude towards the self is more of an exploratory journey between an awareness of self and an unawareness of some aspects of oneself.

The exhibition will be on view from March 4th through March 22nd, 2017.

Please, join us at ART 7 Gallery in Fort Worth, TX for a complementary reception, and meet the artist on Thursday, March 9th from 6 to 8 PM.
