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!

The Enigma of Divination – works on paper by Dennis Gonzalez with music by Ataraxia

image

The Grackle Art Gallery is honored to present a solo exhibition of works on paper by Dennis Gonzalez on May 14th. He will be performing with his new group Ataraxia and displaying his new works on paper.

His artwork is a mix of cultural icons and mystical symbols presented with vibrant colors on black backgrounds which create a rich tableau that appears to contain ancient messages.

Ataraxia’s premier performance at the Benbrook Public Library’s “Music Monday” was an enlightened and brilliant masterwork of Eastern-tinged jazz. The trio consists of Dennis Gonzalez (trumpet, gongs, percussion and vocals), Drew Phelps (contrabass and percussion) and Jagath Lakpriya (tabla). The music is spacious in quality and flows with Eastern rhythms.

4621 El Campo, Fort Worth, Saturday, May 14th, 7-11pm, 817-615-0681, Free.

2016 MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival April 14 – 17

MainSt2016logo

APRIL 14-17, 2016 IN DOWNTOWN FORT WORTH

The 31st MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival (MAIN ST.) kicks off April 14 in Downtown Fort Worth, bringing thousands of spectators to experience the sounds, sights and tastes of the #1 ranked arts festival in Texas. Encompassing more than 27 city blocks, MAIN ST. will spotlight 208 jury-selected local and national artists, showcase nearly 140 chart-topping musical groups, offer culinary dishes from across the state, and provide arts-and-crafts activities for the entire family.

In the 1980s, MAIN ST. began as part of an urban revitalization campaign to reawaken the city’s core by showcasing Downtown Fort Worth’s shops and restaurants. Today, MAIN ST. is a multi-faceted festival that transforms downtown into an outdoor gallery and concert stage for four full days, bringing in more than $28 million in economic impact annually. It has been listed as one of the “Top 100 Events in North America” by the American Bus Association (ABA), is a three-time winner of the “Grand Pinnacle” Award from the International Festivals and Events Association (IFEA), was named one of the nation’s 10 best art festivals by USA Today in 2015, and snagged Fort Worth, Texas magazine’s “Best of 2015” Reader’s Pick Festival award.

MainSt2016art

“Every year, MAIN ST. attracts thousands of art enthusiasts, culinary connoisseurs and musical gurus to Fort Worth for a weekend dedicated to art, food, music, and culture,” said Larry Anfin, chairman of the Festivals and Events Committee for Downtown Fort Worth Initiatives, Inc., producer of MAIN ST. “It has been incredible to witness MAIN ST.’s transformation into one of the nation’s top outdoor arts festivals, and if the 2016 MAIN ST. is anything like the previous 30 years, it is certainly going to be an unforgettable event for all those involved.”

The prize-winning art will take main stage at the 31st MAIN ST. Of the 1,500 applications received, only 208 artists were selected to exhibit their art. Many of the award-winning artists from the 2015 festival will be exhibiting again in 2016, including Best Of Show-winner Terry Evans (wood), Merit Award-winner David Conn (printmaking), and Juror Award-winner Andrew Carson (sculpture). Mediums include jewelry, digital, mixed-media, leather, fiber, painting, sculpture, drawing/pastels, metalwork, photography, ceramic, wood and glass. By the end of the festival, more than $4.6 million worth of art is expected to be sold. Details including artist statements, booth numbers, contact information, and more can be found online at MAIN ST.’s “Fine Art Showcase.

The 2016 MAIN ST. musical lineup is teeming with local, regional and national talent, who will be taking the stage at four different locations in downtown, including the UT Arlington MAIN Stage, Sundance Square Stage, Star-Telegram Performing Arts Stage, and Frost ‘Locals-Only’ Stage. Starting at noon daily, nearly 140 headliners will bring a vast array of musical genres to the festival, ranging from jazz and country to Latin and blues. Headliners include funk-soul-jazz saxophonist Maceo Parker, Afro-Cuban jazz artist Poncho Sanchez, Texas soul singer Luke Wade, Austin-based rock group Band of Heathens, Celtic rockers The Killdares, multimedia troupe Squonk Opera, and many more. An entertainment schedule, performance dates and times, and musician biographies can be found online at MAIN ST.’s “Music on MAIN” page.

The food featured at this year’s MAIN ST. will give festivalgoers a chance to taste authentic Texas cuisine, including brisket sandwiches from Riscky’s BBQ, fajita nachos from Bobby’s Fajitas, Fletcher’s Corn Dogs, grilled chicken satay from Thai Tina’s, Baja Smoothies, gumbo from Crawfish Connection, Bahama Mamas from Schmidt’s German Village, and more. Times Ten Cellars’ “Wine Experience” tasting tent and the “Craft Brew Pavilion,” serving local, national and international craft beers, are also returning in 2016.

Stevie Ray & Jimmie Vaughan Public Art Tribute Approved – Call for entry Coming

cod
PUBLIC ART INSTALLATION HONORING
STEVIE RAY AND JIMMIE VAUGHAN
APPROVED FOR KIEST PARK IN OAK CLIFF

The Dallas Park Board has approved a contract with the Oak Cliff Foundation confirming contributions of $68,000 for a new public art installation honoring Dallas natives and world-renowned blues musicians, Stevie Ray and Jimmie Vaughan to stand at Kiest Park in Oak Cliff, near the brothers’ childhood home. The move came just two days before Saturday’s induction of the late Stevie Ray Vaughan and his band Double Trouble into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cincinnati, OH. A call for artists will be issued this summer.

“We are pleased to be able to develop a public art commission to honor the lives and contributions of Dallas’ own Vaughan Brothers,” says Office of Cultural Affairs Interim Director, David Fisher. “Placing the work at Kiest Park, near their childhood home, is exactly the right location.”

The project will honor the Vaughan Brothers as important contributors to the history and culture of Dallas. The sibling blues guitarists Jimmie Vaughan (born in 1951) and Stevie Ray Vaughan (1954-1990) were born and raised in the Oak Cliff neighborhood of Dallas. They began playing guitar during their childhood and by their mid-teens were semi-professional musicians. The brothers relocated to Austin in the mid-1970s, forming individual bands that influenced the blues revival of the 1980s. Stevie Ray Vaughan was killed in a helicopter crash in August of 1990.

“The Dallas Park Board enthusiastically supported moving ahead with the contract for the Oak Cliff Foundation to contribute partial funding for the project,” says Office of Cultural Affairs Public Art Manager, Kay Kallos. “I think everyone felt this kind of recognition in Dallas is long overdue.”

The total project budget of $142,000 includes $74,000 from the 2006 Bond Program for public art projects in parks and $68,000 from the Oak Cliff Foundation. Of that, $87,200 will be allocated for the artwork, $40,000 for maintenance and $14,800 for administrative costs.

Oak Foundation Board Member, Kirby Warnock helped move the project forward. “We’re pleased the Oak Cliff Foundation could help bring this project to fruition,” says Warnock. “Now we’re calling on the public to join the campaign.” Donations to the Vaughan Brothers Art Project can be made online at http://vaughanbrosart.com/donate/

All hippies, young and old welcome!

Dress Attire: HIPPIE

DJ “Gene the Scream” from KNON, 89.3 FM.
email: underground@knon.org

“Notes from the Underground” is a show that will remind Baby Boomers, and introduce younger listeners, to a time in American History when the youth culture flexed its muscle while at once injecting a feeling of love and peace into the American psyche.

It was the blossoming of Rock ‘N’ Roll.

The music could be haunting, beautiful, and mind expanding. It was anti-war and pro-love. In short, Notes from the Underground will pull you in, turn you around, and leave you smiling. So reserve a ticket on trans-love airways and fly with me, your host Gene, on Notes from the Underground.

Live Painters!

2014 MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival April 10-13

mainst2014logo

The largest arts festival in Texas and one of the finest in the U.S. is returning to Downtown Fort Worth for its 29th year on April 10-13, 2014. Presented by Coors Distributing Company of Fort Worth and produced by Downtown Fort Worth Initiatives, Inc., the four-day MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival (MAIN ST.) spans more than 27 blocks from the Tarrant County Courthouse to the Fort Worth Convention Center while showcasing 213 hand-selected juried artists.

 

Also billed as Fort Worth’s largest, free music festival, MAIN ST. features 120 distinct performances throughout the weekend, including local and national entertainment acts and musicians, performance artists, dancers and street performers. Culinary options from local restaurants, beer and wine tastings, family-friendly arts-and-crafts activities and more complete the scene, providing four days of excitement on the historic red bricks of Main Street and throughout the beautiful new Sundance Square Plaza.

 

“The MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival has become the city’s most beloved annual event, and, even more importantly, continues to fulfill its original purpose of changing perspectives and enhancing the quality of life of Downtown Fort Worth,” said Marilyn Ackmann, chairman of the Festivals and Events Committee for Downtown Fort Worth Initiatives, Inc., the producers of MAIN ST. “The Festival has also been a major catalyst for our city’s cultural growth by welcoming and bringing together people from all sides of life, from local cowboys, foodies and music lovers to artistic mavens, gallery owners and global art dealers and collectors. It is because of these reasons that MAIN ST. has risen to be one of the top-rated, fine arts festivals in the country and received worldwide acclaim and recognition.”

 

STAR OF THE SHOW: THE ART

In addition to being the largest arts festival in Texas and in the Southwest region of the United States, MAIN ST. is annually ranked as one of the finest arts festivals in the U.S., as referenced in both the Art Fair Sourcebook and The Harris List.

 

Art enthusiasts can choose from a variety of creative and original works of art from 15+ mediums, such as sculpture, painting, digital, fiber, printmaking, mixed media, ceramics, photography, wood, glass, jewelry, and metalwork, with more than $4.6 million worth of art expected to be sold. MAIN ST. is a juried art fair, which means that artists must submit their work to an esteemed panel of national and local judges before being selected to exhibit. Of the nearly 1,400 applications received, only 213 artists were selected to exhibit at the 2014 festival, including the 26 award-winning artists from the 2013 festival.  Each exhibiting artist will be present at their corresponding booths during festival hours to discuss their work and explain the processes and materials used in displayed works.

 

Details including artist statements, booth numbers, contact information and more can be found on MAIN ST.’s iPhone application or on its website’s “Fine Art Showcase,” here: www.MainStreetArtsFest.org/Experience-Main-St./The-Art/.

 

MUSIC ON MAIN!

This year’s MAIN ST. will be jamming with free, live music beginning at 11 a.m. daily during all four days of the festival, bringing to Downtown Fort Worth the biggest names in country, rock, folk, blues, jazz, Latin rock and more.  More than 100 national, regional and local musicians will entertain on three different stages, including performances from the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra and the Fort Worth Opera, five-time Grammy Award-winning blues guitarist Robert Cray, chart-topping hybrid country / rock vocal group The Mavericks, nine-time Grammy Award-winning Latin jazz pianist Eddie Palmieri, Austin-based eclectic singer / songwriter Bob Schneider, the 2013 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition gold medal winner Vadym Kholodenko, and more than 10 performances from the world-famous Chinese Acrobats who will demonstrate acrobatic stunts and feats of balance, flexibility, coordination and strength.

 

“Performances by Fort Worth’s world-renowned, resident performing arts organizations is an incredibly special and wonderful addition to MAIN ST.,” said Jay Downie, the festival’s producer. “The new Sundance Square Plaza provides a vibrant, engaging venue for the FWSO, Opera and Cliburn performances. The willingness of these organizations to showcase their talents to thousands of patrons during our Downtown celebration is a special opportunity for our guests and visitors.”

 

Details including a comprehensive entertainment schedule, musician biographies, stage sponsors, and performance dates and times can be found on MAIN ST.’s “Music on MAIN” page, here: www.MainStreetArtsFest.org/Experience-Main-St./Music-On-Main/.

 

CULINARY ARTS

MAIN ST. is bringing back “festival-favorites” and the best in local cuisine in 2014, allowing revelers to experience a wide range of culinary arts.  Whether it’s tenderloin tamales or brisket tacos from Reata, smoked turkey legs or authentic Texas BBQ from Riscky’s, Louisiana crawfish from the Crawfish Connection, German bratwurst or “Bahama Mamas” from Schmidt’s Of German Village, handmade crepes from Crepe Crazy, zesty chicken fajita nachos or steak fajitas from Bobby’s Fajitas, or original corny dogs from Fletcher’s and McKinney’s, festival-goers have choices to satisfy almost any taste bud.

 

Soft drinks, smoothies, iced tea and lemonade as well as beer, margaritas, Mojitos, and Texas wines will also be available for sale.  To buy food and beverages, coupons are required, and can be purchased in-person at the MAIN ST. ticket booths or in advance online, here: Store.MainStreetArtsFest.org.

 

In addition, to help support and raise awareness for water conservation, the Tarrant Regional Water District will be sponsoring free water stations throughout the festival, featuring Fort Worth’s nationally renowned municipal water dispensed with a state-of-the-art U/V filtration system and chilled to perfection.

 

FUN FOR ALL AGES AT “MAIN ST. CREATES!”

The family-favorite “MAIN ST. Creates!” program, presented by Wells Fargo, is back for 2014 and will anchor the north end of the festival. The hands-on, arts-and-crafts outdoor art studio is home to the Young People’s Art Fair (featuring the work of more than 300 student artists from the Fort Worth community), children’s entertainment, educational programs, and interactive activities, such as ceramic painting, art demonstrations, clay sculpting, and rock climbing.

 

“MAIN ST. Creates!” is open from 10 a.m. – 9 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday (April 10-12), and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday (April 13). More details can be found online, here: www.MainStreetArtsFest.org/Experience-Main-St./Main-St-Creates.

HISTORY

MAIN ST. traces its beginnings to the early 1980s when the City of Fort Worth set in motion a campaign of urban revitalization in the Central Business District. As momentum began to build, businessman Robert Bass spearheaded the initial effort in 1986 to create an event showcasing the attractions of the city’s reawakening downtown core.

 

Mr. Bass and other prominent civic leaders envisioned a multi-faceted festival that would transform downtown into an outdoor gallery and concert stage on an early spring weekend. The inaugural MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival was a three-day event involving 140 artists, 60 performance groups and 600 volunteers. Attendance was approximately 80,000.

 

Nearly three decades later, Downtown Fort Worth has become a thriving, 24-hour live-work-play environment. The MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival, meanwhile, has followed a parallel trajectory, evolving into the biggest and best-attended event of its kind in the Southwest.

MAIN ST. is annually produced by Downtown Fort Worth Initiatives, Inc., and is free to the public.  Festival hours* for 2014 are:
