Winter Works 2021: A Group Exhibition  
Cufflink Art - Winter Works 2021: A Group Exhibition
Exhibition on Display: November 10 through December 23, 2021
Cufflink Art is pleased to announce our affiliation with Fort Worth-based artist Adam Fung. The gallery will be showcasing Fung's work for their upcoming group exhibition, Winter Works 2021. Fung uses painting to call attention to subjects such as climate change, natural landscapes and patterns that play a role in the make-up of our surroundings, whether it is the environment or the universe. He conducts his own research, a vital element in the process of creating his work, by personal and direct interactions such as an expedition and artist residency in Antarctica and numerous visits to Far West Texas and New Mexico. His paintings can be found in public art collections at Microsoft, South Bend Museum of Art, and the U.S. Department...

Greg Brown  
Texas Artists Coalition - Artist Spotlight - Greg Brown
Greg Brown was born in Washington, D.C., in 1969, but grew up in the Dallas area. From 1993-2001 he worked for Neiman Marcus at the downtown Dallas location as the Men's Designer Sportswear specialist. When he left the store, he had many Gianni Versace ties he didn't want to discard, especially since Versace had been murdered in 1997. In 2007, Greg had the idea to paint with the ties. Thru trial-and-error, what has been created is a collection of Versace Tie Paintings. Each canvas is painted in correspondence to a certain tie and then the tie is permanently attached. Most importantly, each tie is pre-death, which Gianni himself had a hand in creating. As time goes by, though, these ties are becoming less accessible. Over the years, Greg's paintings have been shown in many galleries and featured in the American Airlines' Admirals Clubs in Miami and Chicago.

Town & Country  
Artspace111 - Town & Country: Douglas Blagg & Suzanne Gentling
Exhibition on Display: October 29th - December 4, 2021
Witty details from urban landscapes juxtapose observations from country living, including vast landscapes, skyscapes, and details of Texas flora in this exhibition. Both from important North Texas artist families, Douglas Blagg, and Suzanne Gentling offer opposite views of the Texas landscape in the realist tradition. Blagg's work focuses on urban landscape through watercolor with a high attention to detail and use of vibrant color. Gentling guides the viewer in another experience, showing gentle traditional countryside through watercolor, pastels, photography, and lithographs. Both artists use the vehicle of landscape to meditate on the mysteries of the world that surrounds them.

Joe Allred  
Rebecca Low Sculpture Gallery, Inc - Get Your Art On
Featured Artist: Guest Artist: Joe Allred
Lawrence E. "Joe" Allred, PhD began creating metal sculptures later in life, in 2015 after a long career in biomedical science and academia. Joe always had artistic energy. In his early life and university education his creative outlets were in writing fiction and live theater. He was the only science student at the university who also had a drama scholarship partially funding his undergraduate education. Joe's sculptures begin when he chooses or fabricates steel pieces with interesting properties: size, shape, texture, and mass. He lives with them, looking at them sometimes for months.

Women, Art and Technology: Ornament and Adornment  
Marlene/Spencer Hays Gallery - Women, Art & Technology
Exhibition on Display: November 5 – December 11, 2021 | Works by Eliza Au, Mary A. Johnson, Liz Trosper, Julie Libersat, Naomi Peterson, Jihye Han and Lara Asam
This exhibition brings together a group of women artists who create ornament through digital means. Each artist uses ornament in different ways to achieve different means. The goal of this exhibition is to challenge the stereotype that men and technology go hand in hand; and that women in current times are using these tools to create art that speaks to their own experiences, views, and values. By bringing together interdisciplinary artists and artists from different artistic fields, what is revealed is a cross-section of how and why technology is used in each individual's art practice.

SOMOS  
TranSystems Gallery - SOMOS
Exhibition on Display: November 5 - December 11, 2021 | Works by Gerardo Macías Robles
As a first generation Mexican-American, my culture and heritage has directly influenced me to use my artistic ability as a mediator by exposing some hardships that many north and central immigrants face. Somos is a body of work that pays homage to immigrants, many of whom have sacrificed everything for their families to have an opportunity at achieving the American Dream. The definition of the American Dream has evolved and differs from person to person, but for myself and many others, the goal remains – build a legacy. By bearing fruits in unfavorable conditions, we ("first-gens") are tasked with reaping those fruits to then bear more.

BNSF Gallery - CITADEL
Exhibition on Display: November 5 - December 11, 2021 | Works by Yuni Lee
CITADEL collectivizes both the constructed and the natural by examining technology and ecology through the lens of painting. The construct is that of nature and technology as both explorative and whole in the World we share. Lee's large-scale painting 6ft x 15ft will peer over into the space with towering heights. With swirling frenetic patterns in dizzying detail, the paintings connect order and chaos in nature to human advancement - the geometries of power grids, urban sprawl and circuit boards (to include three to five variety size of paintings) both dazzle and elicit the imagination. Inspiring the paintings elements of contemporary and traditional visual culture – the bright color. scrapes and simulacra of cities and the materials...

I Waited  
Gallery Three - The Deconstructed Self
Exhibition on Display: November 5 - December 12, 2021 | Works by Natalie Christensen
In 2014 I moved from the state of Kentucky to New Mexico leaving my lifelong home and my 25-year career as a psychotherapist behind. While it was an exciting moment it was also a time of questioning and reflection. Like many artists who have come to New Mexico, I was immediately drawn to the distinctive Southwestern light. The beauty of the natural environment is evident to most people; however, my interest was to explore the more banal peripheral landscapes that often go unnoticed by the casual observer. I began by photographing color fields and geometric shapes. I was interested in the way light and shadow could spark complex narratives, and I quickly became aware that these isolated moments in the suburban landscape were rich...

House of Spit and Knees  
Central Gallery - House of Spit and Knees
Exhibition on Display: November 5 - December 11, 2021 | Works by Cosmo Jones
I prefer to allow styles, materials, and techniques to drift as I experiment based on instinctual decision making. I feel this gives my paintings their own kind of consciousness. The purpose of my work is simply to allow truths to uncover themselves and then to present those discoveries to viewers. It is up to the viewers to find what is useful to them. This is how I fulfill my role as an artist—by moving into gray areas of reality and mystical states of consciousness in order to bring something back as an offering. I don’t worry about technique or procedure. If I have an idea, I do it. If I have an affinity in the moment to use some imagery or a adopt a technique, I don’t hesitate. I try not to worry if things “make sense,” allowing my conscious and unconscious desires...

Illustrations from the Book of Horse  
Brock/Visiting Angels Gallery-Illustrations from the Book of Horse
Exhibition on Display: November 5 – December 11, 2021 | Works by Rick Steinburg
In my series Illustrations From the Book of Horse I am making illustrations for an imaginary reference book on all things horse. Some of the pieces illustrate the adventures and mishaps of characters that developed along the way. I also did pieces that illustrate the birth of the first horse, pieces that refer to Texas horse culture, a piece that illustrates a second rate Wild West show, and pieces that illustrate the coming of the automobile and the reaction of horses and riders to its arrival. While these scenes are fictional, they are closely related to our reality; pulled from history and my family's Texas experience, sourced from my elders. Many of these stories involve humor, while others connect the past with the ever changing world we live in.

Olive Pemberton  
Frost Gallery - Olive Pemberton: A Century of Beauty
Exhibition on Display: September 24 - December 11, 2021 | Works by Olive Pemberton
This exhibition recognizes the accomplishments of Olive Pemberton in a retrospective survey of her career work. Pemberton studied and exhibited with artists of the Fort Worth Circle. Her work ranges stylistically from realism to abstraction. Her admiration for artists such as Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, and Amadeo Modigliani can be seen in some paintings as she explores adaptations of technique, color and composition. Some of her signature works are highly abstract, with vertical veiled panels of color setting off simple abstracted figures and trees in the landscape. She most often painted with oil and casein, but also enjoyed sculpting with clay. The exhibition is primarily drawn from the Pemberton family collection, but other works from...

A Solo Exhibition by Austin Uzor - Exhibition Dates: September 11, 2021 - November 6, 2021
Fall Gallery Night & Opening Reception: Saturday, September 11, 2021, 6 - 9 PM

For New Meanings, he reimagines a new space that exists beyond the confines of the self and the different worlds that we all move around in. In the current climate, where all our cultural identities have been thrown into flux, his work touches on the core of what the American dream is and what it means.

The assembled sculpture resembles the wooden blocks formations he and his children build together during playtime.

When Air Becomes Sky  
Fort Worth Public Art - When Air Becomes Sky

The Animalis Works team, artists Dharmesh Patel and Autumn Ewalt, was inspired by the revitalization and conservation of Northwest Community Park as an ecosystem. Particularly interested in its reemergence as a stopping point on the migration route of the monarch butterflies, the team designed a series of larger-than-life butterfly sculptures. Each beautiful butterfly sculpture calls to mind this migration, encapsulating the energy and vibrance of nature. Placed along two trails each butterfly appears to have just landed, inviting viewers to interact with the work while exploring the park. The sculptures hold a total of approximately 6500 embedded crystal prisms which are activated by sunlight throughout the day, casting colorful patterns of refracted light
