Artspace111 - BigBoldTexas
Exhibition on Display: March 23 - June 2, 2024

FW Art Dealers Association Spring Gallery Night, Saturday March 23

Artspace111 is proud to present the latest solo exhibition BigBoldTexas featuring artist Jon Flaming. Flaming creates large-scale canvases complete with larger-than-life characters that speak to vast and bold themes of the West. Honoring the rich history of ranch hands, farmers and tool pushers, Flaming’s art draws on many influences: a mixed bag of styles from heroes of the genre like Remington, Russell, Dixon and Dunton. His style calls to mind a fresh take on primitive, outsider, folk, modern, contemporary and naive art. The spirit of the West is heroic, gritty and confident, but tenderly values family, generosity and community, themes all found within his work. Flaming’s graphic style fuses iconic western palates and symbols like the cowboy or cowgirl, bucking broncos and rodeo regalia to create a distinct visual voice to capture the heart of the Lone Star State at large.

BigBoldTexas will be on view March 23 - June 2, 2024. Opening reception during Fort Worth Art Dealers Association Spring Gallery Night, Saturday March, 23 from 12-9pm. Visitors may also visit the gallery during regular gallery hours, Tuesday – Friday 11am -5pm, and Saturday 11am -2pm.

"Flaming’s work lives and breathes the cultural aesthetic of the west."

– Margery Gossett, Gallery Director 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.
