The 33% – Artists from the Cultural District March 25

IMG_1058

Join us this Spring Gallery Night 2017 at the Grackle Art Gallery to experience art, culture, and live music. A mix of phenomenal local artists with works guaranteed to dazzle the senses will be showcased.

The majority of people who work at fine art museums are active artists. Museums are powered by artists.
The Grackle Art Gallery is hosting this show in honor and celebration of this truth. The idea for this show originated from staff at The Amon Carter Museum of American Art where we chose the theme Works on Paper and Photography to tribute the great Works on Paper and Photography collection that sets this museum apart in the Fort Worth Cultural District.

In creating this show, we are enriching the community of Fort Worth by promoting these local artists with a space to show work together.

This show has been curated by Allester Vinteers and Shane Green, both passionate and recognized local community artists.

We give special thanks to the folks at The Grackle Art Gallery for granting us the opportunity to use their space and to everyone else who’s helped us make this a reality!

This is a free event. Come join us to support the local Art Community.

FUN, FRESH, ALIVE and HERE!

*The show itself will be on view by appointment starting on the 19th of March. We are also having a Matinee the day after Gallery Night, Sunday, March, 26th from 12-3pm.

Here’s a list of the amazing musicians who will be playing live at our Art Show during Spring Gallery Night 2017!!!
*Swirve
*Canyon Kafer
*Jeff Dazey
We give special thanks to Clint Niosi for arranging this line up of awesome musical talent!

Your Private Collection Art Gallery Presents Jack Wolfsen

1JackWolfsenad2

YOUR PRIVATE COLLECTION ART GALLERY

Presents Jack Wolfsen at Last Saturday Gallery Night

March 25, 5-8pm

 Jack Wolfsen, award-winning sculptor, creates his imaginative works using wood, bronze, steel and cement.  Wall décor, single-standing sculptures and furniture are all part of this successful artist’s work. He is recognized for his work with barbed wire and has received many awards for his creations of old, barbed wire scavenged from Texas Ranches. His tree sculptures begin with barbed wire and are reborn in natural art.

How does Wolfsen feel as he creates each piece? “‘Enjoyment’ is the word that comes to mind,” he said.  “I never get tired of the look on people’s faces when they are in awe and discover that the sculpture is made of recycled barbed wire.”

finishing touches

Life scenes, like “Finishing Touches,” are created with hundreds feet of wire and welds.                                           

One of his sculptures, which contained over 3300 welds, won an award at the Texas State Fair

Art Competition. He has competed in many art shows, including the Rio Brazos Art Exhibition and the Stars Over Texas competition. Wolfsen was recently honored with ‘Best of Show” at the prestigious, juried Breckenridge Fine Art National and International competition and show in Breckenridge, Texas.

Linda Watkins, Co-owner of Your Private Collection, believes that, “Good art should make you feel something. For example, does it evoke excitement, peace, relaxation? Does it remind you of a past experience, a moment or a place? With Jack Wolfsen, one definitely feels a range of emotions.”   

Galleries of Granbury—Last Saturday Gallery Night

Come celebrate Wolfsen’s art at Your Private Collection Art Gallery on March 25 as part of Galleries of Granbury’s Last Saturday Gallery Night.

The Galleries of Granbury will host “Last Saturday Gallery Night” (a free art walk) on the last Saturday of each month. All are open until 8pm with “meet the artists”, opening receptions, demonstrations, hors d’oeuvres, wine and music.

Come visit – Artefactz, Langdon Center Art Gallery, Shanley House Art Gallery, Against the Grain Studio, and Your Private Collection Art Gallery along with D’Vine Wine and The Pan Handle on March 25 5-8 pm.

Aaron Thane Tate and Cynthia Ross featured at Your Private Art Collection Aug. 27

YourPrivateCollection-August

Your Private Collection Art Gallery is proud to present

Aaron Thane Tate and Cynthia Ross as their featured artists at Granbury’s Last Saturday Gallery Night on August 27—5-8pm 

Aaron Tate’s work in solid worked, blown, and cast glass includes natural subjects, made objects, and landscapes. Tate has developed a style in which the images are often beautiful or classic and, yet, enigmatic. By the use of a repetitive light and dark technique superimposed on the surface color, he is able to affect an atmospheric quality to sculptures.

Tate worked in lead positions with world-renowned glass artists Dale Chihuly and Martin Blank in Seattle for 13 years. Projects included the famous Chihuly’s Persian and Sea Forms, the Ikebana series, the Seattle Symphony chandelier and the Bellagio ceiling.

Some of my pieces are happy and uplifting and others make one pensive and thoughtful. That is what the artist strives for—a personal response to a sculpture, an object, that evokes something from one’s personal experiences in this space-time.” said Tate.

Cynthia Ross constantly pushes to create new and exciting elements in her art, incorporating the colors and textures found in nature. When she is not honing her skills in the studio, she can be found taking photographs or searching for items she wants to emulate in glass.  Cynthia finds she draws consistently on her landscape design background when creating movement and using color.

Last Saturday Gallery Night –Your Private Collection is one of five galleries which host this free art walk on the last Saturday of each month on the Historic Square in Granbury.

These “Galleries of Granbury” also include Artefactz, Langdon Center Art Gallery, Shanley House Art Gallery and Uptown Arts-John G. Campbell Gallery. D’Vine Wine and EnVision Creatives  also are destinations. All are open until 8pm with “meet the artists,” opening receptions, art demonstrations, hors d’oeuvres, wine and music. 

Your Private Collection reminds you that someone can show you the technical aspects of artwork, but a relationship with art is developed by spending time viewing art and meeting artists and adds a new love in your life.

Sculptors Margaret Drake and Stacey Watkins at Your Private Collection in Granbury on July 30

Your Private Collection--Drake-Watkins

Your Private Collection Art Gallery is proud to present sculptors Margaret Drake and Stacey Watkins as their featured artists at Granbury’s Last Saturday Gallery Night on July 30, 2016


Margaret Drake
, bronze sculptor and Western Artist, lives on a ranch near Glen Rose, Texas.  Studying under renowned artists, Margaret focuses on portraiture and figurative art.  Her Native Americans and horses have been accepted into juried competitions including the Bosque Art Classic, Mountain Oyster, Estes Park, Breckenridge Fine Art Show, Little Rock’s “Sculpture at the Rivermarket” and the Loveland “Sculpture in the Park” Show.  Working with both water- and oil-based clays, Drake loves the “..wonder when that lifeless lump of clay comes alive.” She closely supervises the creation of her bronze pieces at the foundry. “I will always want to challenge myself by creating pieces that express movement and power,” said Drake, “..to tug at the emotions of my audience.
There is beauty and symmetry everywhere out there, waiting to be captured and celebrated.”

Stacey Watkins, phosphorescent sculptor, has found her passion and her voice through her art and her own spiritual journey.  Her art, like life, is full of a variety, color, and science.  She set no boundaries when it comes to the use of mediums ranging from glass, metal, paint, and resin.  Watkins combines these mediums with resin impregnated with blends of phosphorescent pigment, unique because it absorbs UV light to glow in the dark with bright contrasting vibrant colors.  Her artwork is true expression of continuing life in its ability to change visually and create dialogue with the viewer.  “I want people to be able to look at my art and see something that may strike a spark in their imagination and give them a feeling of the Lord’s presence,” said Watkins. She is the owner of Your Private Collection Art Gallery and has been honored in many national and international competitions and shows.

Your Private Collection reminds you that someone can show you the technical aspects of artwork, but a relationship with art is developed by spending time viewing art and meeting artists and adds a new love in your life.
