Reception: July 18, 6-9 in partnership with Morgan Mercantile
With "Blooms," Katie Toon explores permanence and impermanence through the
tender and intimate beauty of flowers. Composed of enlarged photographs of
flowers in various stages of life and decay and an installation piece of
organza and satin fabric petals and flowers suspended from the ceiling
further inundate the viewer with the fleeting and transient. The scale of
the photographs and installation is designed to immerse the audience in
softness and luminescence, connected with the ephemeral.
About Art Tooth
Art Tooth is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit hybrid gallery project that develops
community engagement through innovative partnerships between artists,
cultural spaces, and local businesses.
Based in Fort Worth, we produced more than two dozen exhibitions and programs
across North Texas beginning in 2016, including professional development
workshops for local cultural producers. Between galleries, organizations, and
artists, our influence on the region has grown substantially over a short time.
Last fall, we were honored to be selected as the Fort Worth Community Art
Center's first ever Art Collective in Residence. This partnership gives us a
home and also a place to host many of our programs.
