Mark Bradford - Eve, 2001, Mixed media on canvas  
The Modern - End Papers

Exhibition on Display: March 8, 2020 - January 10, 2021 By: Mark Bradford
Over the past two decades, Mark Bradford has created monumental works of abstract painting and collage. This exhibition focuses on the key material and fundamental motif Bradford employed early in his career and has returned to periodically over the past two decades: end papers. Bradford’s mature work began with his experimentation with end papers while a student at the California Institute of the Arts in the late 1990s. He had grown up in his mother’s beauty salon, eventually becoming a hairdresser himself, and was therefore quite familiar with the small papers used to protect hair from overheating during the process for permanent waves.

William Campbell Contemporary Art - Alignments

Alignments will feature a curated collection of Tolman's recent large-scale and moderately sized nonrepresentational paintings inspired by his tangible and spiritual interactions with his immediate environment. "These are abstract works that primarily are influenced by the natural world and are often informed by a sense of place," writes the artist, who frequently spends time outdoors both studying and communing with his surroundings. He also draws inspiration from his travels abroad, and has spent a good deal of time in Portugal, where several of the current paintings materialized.

Frost Gallery - Serene Disturbances

Exhibition on Display: October 9-December 12, 2020
Works by Dameon Lester
Our perceptions of existence are bound by our humanity. These limitations prevent us from comprehending the greater resonance of our actions. My art suggests an uneasy continuum between the known and unknown, as well as the controlled and controlling elements of the world that surrounds us. My sculptures and drawings abstract the glacial ice sheets, fragments, and crevasses encapsulating the increasingly ephemeral quality of nature’s assumed permanence and resilience.

Exhibition on Display: November 13 - December 12, 2020
Works by Michelle Gonzalez and Austin Uzor
Misplaced Memories is a two-person exhibition addressing present realities affected by past events through paintings by Michelle Cortez Gonzales and Austin Uzor. When left unpreserved and without witness, our fickle and fleeting memories are retold through physical artifacts and reproductions of ambiguity that, over time, become our truths. Finding ourselves at this crossroads of uncertainty, we seek comfort in our memories of the past and navigate our journey through them. Together, Gonzales and Uzor attempt to narrate stories for the future when the vocabulary of the past is temporarily lost.

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.

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.

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.
