Marina Adams, OZ, 2018, Acrylic on linen,  88 x 78  
The Modern - FOCUS: Marina Adams

Exhibition on Display: November 6, 2020 - January 10, 2021
By: Marina Adams
Contemporary artist Marina Adams will show seven energetic abstract paintings from the past four years that are immersive in scale, as well as recent small gouache works on paper. Adams explores the relationship between color and shape in her acrylic-on-linen paintings, where organic forms of solid color abut and interlock. Her work balances organization and improvisation; she sketches out her compositions before she paints, but there is an immediacy made obvious by loose, confident brushstrokes, where drips and bands of color overlap.

Sharon Grimes contemporary abstract artist  
Sharon Grimes - Contemporary Abstract Artist

Sharon Grimes of Longview, TX, is a self-taught contemporary abstract artist whose art is expressed with vivid colors and vibrant energy in all of its textures and layers. She first became interested in art at a young age and grew up loving to sketch people, animals, and surroundings. In her early Twenties, her passion for art blossomed as she was inspired by the many galleries and museums she frequented in London while living abroad for a year. It is fascinating to see how she ventures onto a new project with a birch panel that is constructed for her locally, with a 2 inch cradle. For her artworks, Grimes uses quite a selection of products and this is why she describes her work as Mixed Media.

Circle Theatre - George Orwell's 1984

Thursday, October 29, 2020 – Thursday, November 4, 2020 at 8pm (CT)
Based on the iconic classic dystopian novel by George Orwell and adapted for the stage by Michael Gene Sullivan, 1984 brings us the story of Winston Smith, who lives in the state of Oceania—a nation where fervent, unquestioning patriotic zeal is expected of every citizen, having rebellious thoughts is a crime, and where the love for anything but The State is treason. A ferocious and provocative adaptation of one of the most prescient works of literature of the last century. The reading will be streamed through Vimeo and you can reserve your ticket(s) using code 1984 at checkout.

Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District  
Stockyards National Historic District - Step into the West

Fort Worth is where the West begins, and nothing embodies Western heritage better than the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District. From the original brick walkways to the wooden corrals, every inch of the Stockyards tells the true history of Texas’s famous livestock industry. The Fort Worth Herd is the world's only twice daily cattle drive, held every day at 11:30 AM & 4:00 PM in the Fort Worth Stockyards. When the railroad arrived in 1876, Fort Worth became a major shipping point for livestock, so the city built the Union Stockyards, two and a half miles north of the Tarrant County Courthouse, in 1887.

Jubilee Theatre presents Trey Anthony's “Da Kink in My Hair” streaming August 14th–August 30th  
Jubilee Theatre - Da Kink In My Hair

Performance: Streaming August 14th – August 30th
By: Trey Anthony
Da Kink in My Hair honors the importance of hair for Black Women. Director Junene K. (pictured left) states "What am I gonna do with this hair?" It's not just a cosmetic question, it is a life direction question. Hair is a crown, it is a symbol of identity, an unweighted accessory that carries so much weight. Our hair goes with us through many of life's journeys. It grows, it falls out, we color it, we straighten it, we manipulate it and it becomes the silent voice to our story.”

Amon Carter - Meditations: Eleanore Mikus at Tamarind

Exhibition on Display: September 19, 2020–April 18, 2021

The more you look, the more you see. Beginning in the 1960s, artist Eleanore Mikus (1927–2017) created monochromatic, contemplative abstractions that respond to the light and shadows of their surroundings in an almost sculptural way. These experimental compositions draw you in, rewarding those willing to linger in front of her subtle, sometimes puzzling, pieces with moments of peaceful calm.

Ken O'Toole - Abundance  
Ken O'Toole - Where We Are Now
Since then the "new normal" has become more than just a inconvenience. So, there have been divisions over the matter. Like myself, many made their precautions part of their everyday life. Some grew complacent Others merely threw caution to the wind. Sadly, the last group made it necessary to continue our safety procedures by spreading the virus. As you know, this has also cost many lives. So, I responded with new work that expressed not only my grief for those we have lost, but also my frustration with what I see as the root cause of this and other maladies festering in our country. This is a photographic series documenting sculptural drawings I created. Thank you for your interest.
