Artspace111 - Future Tales | Jim Malone and Big Bend | A111 Artists

Both Exhibitions on Display: February 3 - March 19, 2022

Artspace111 presents Future Tales by Jim Malone. Most well-known for his alluring works on paper that feature impeccable illustrations of nature and national parks, Jim Malone has worked in a variety of mediums in his extensive 50-year career. This exhibition features works composed of elaborate representations of historic marker signs, geological formations, and nostalgic architecture. He incorporates text and collage to create spontaneous expressions. Referencing his time in Big Bend and other national parks, Malone's compositions lure the viewer in with visual promises of falling asleep under the stars, hiking tall mountains, and visiting historic landmarks. In Future Tales Malone looks to his past Big Bend adventures while raising hope for future excursions. The work becomes an adventure for him and the possibility of adventures for the viewer.

"Malone's intuitive draftsmanship flows freely on paper often inspired by the conical romantic landscapes of the 19th century in a nuanced, surreal form. These landscapes expand off the canvas and transport viewers to vast deserts and dreamlike mountainous regions. This exhibition is no different in its ability to enchant and inspire. The work reaches beyond the paper with collage and mixed media both calling our attention to the quiet and serene." - Margery Gossett, Gallery Owner, Artspace111

Along with Future Tales by Jim Malone, Artspace111 will also present Big Bend, a group exhibition of select Artspace111 artists whose work has been inspired by the Texas National Park. This exhibition will be in the great gallery exhibiting works by Dennis Blagg, Jill Johnson, Layla Luna, Winter Rusiloski, and more!

Artspace111 will host an artist reception on Thursday, February 3, 2022, from 5-8pm. This reception will provide an opportunity for guests and patrons to meet and visit with the artists. The gallery requests that guests RSVP via Eventbrite.

ABOUT ARTSPACE111

Located in downtown Fort Worth, Artspace111 specializes in the exhibition of Contemporary Texas Art.

In addition to the year-round schedule of solo and group exhibitions, the Artspace111 team 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.
