Artspace111 - The Rodeo Show
Exhibition on Display: January 15 - March 20, 2021
Artists: Linda Blackburn, Rima Canaan Lee, Donna Howell-Sickles, and Jo LeMay Rutledge
Artspace111 is pleased to present The Rodeo Show, featuring artists Donna Howell-Sickles,
Jo LeMay Rutledge, Linda Blackburn, and Rima Canaan Lee.
This Group Show will celebrate Texas Rodeo Culture by showcasing women artists who have
first-hand experience with the rodeo and create work around the social influences the
rodeo has on Texas.
Sense 1896, the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo has been known as the most authentic
western lifestyle experience. It is an entertaining and unique part of Texas culture
that significantly enhances the way locals and tourists alike view Fort Worth. Due to
the COVID-19 pandemic, the rodeo will not be taking place, or at least not in the way
Texans are used to. The only other time this event was cancelled was in 1943, near the
height of World War II. Artspace111 has not taken this news lightly, and it has inspired
the gallery to present artworks created to embrace rodeo culture and give patrons the
opportunity to experience rodeo nostalgia through visual art.
In the Grand Tradition of the Fort Worth Rodeo, cowboys, both real and fictitious, are vivid, romantic and dangerous. - Linda Blackburn

Located in downtown Fort Worth, Texas, Artspace111 specializes in the exhibition
of Contemporary Texas Art. In 1980, twin brothers Daniel and Dennis Blagg
established Artspace111, converting a historic 1911 building into artist
studios and a small gallery space in order to support and celebrate the work
of local artists. In 2007, Margery Gossett and William Grella became the
Owner/Directors of Artspace111 and further developed the gallery into a
celebrated and distinguished 3,000 square foot art gallery. In addition to
the year-round schedule of solo and group exhibitions, ArtspaceIII designs
corporate and private art collections for clients throughout the country and
hosts special events in its distinctive gallery and sculpture gardens.
Artspace111 is dedicated to making contemporary art approachable to
individuals of all ages.
Artspace111 is located east of Downtown Fort Worth at Hampton Street and
Weatherford. The gallery is open Tuesday to Friday, 10 - 5 pm and Saturday by
appointment. To schedule a private viewing, contact Margery Gossett or Margo
Hudson by calling 817.692.3228 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
