Untitled, 36 x 36, Acrylic on Canvas, 13/2020, by Donna Howell-Sickles  
Artspace111 - The Rodeo Show
Exhibition on Display: January 15 - March 20, 2021
Since 1896, the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo is 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 in 2021, or at least not in the way Texans are used to. The only other time the Stock Show was canceled was in 1943, near the height of World War II. In order to share the spirit of the rodeo in a year when the arenas will be quiet, Artspace111 has been inspired to present artworks created to embrace rodeo culture and give patrons the opportunity to experience rodeo nostalgia through visual art.

SHELIA & HOUSTON HILL COURTYARD  
Shelia and Houston Hill Courtyard Gallery - New Sculptures
The Fort Worth Community Arts Center welcomes two distinct emerging artists Jihye Han and Ben Muñoz to the Shelia and Houston Hill Courtyard Gallery. Ben Muñoz's Compacted with Care examines the duality of the Muñoz's life as a husband, father, and artist. The single sculpture is constructed from the Muñoz's printmaking woodcuts and figuratively denotes life's building blocks' in which the artist reconfigures balancing between home life and artistic pursuits. The assembled sculpture resembles the wooden blocks formations he and his children build together during playtime. Jihye Han's Breaking Ground utilizing clay, cedar, and porcelain explores themes of separation and lonesomeness, drawing from the artist's Korean heritage and North and South Korea division. Breaking Ground consists of two site-specific structures designed specifically for the Courtyard Gallery.

Small Works  
Gallery Three - Small Works

Exhibition on Display: January 22 - February 27, 2021
Works by Michael Frank Blair
At their most basic level, the small works in this exhibition are manifestations of my time and presence in the studio. While appearing playful, they are seriously mulling over many of the formal and conceptual concerns I wrestle with, primarily the "fabric" of two-dimensional space, and its human significance. I generally shy away from direct imagery in my work but am deeply concerned with images as a phenomenon: their materiality, their perspectives and scales, their ontological slippages. ⁣⁣⁣

Exhibition on Display: January 22 – March 20, 2021
Works by Treslyn Shipley.
During this season of social distancing and isolation, the concept of crowds of people has become either obsolete or frightening. I began to paint crowds just a few months before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, and the subject of representing crowds transformed from a subtle narrative on the in-between moments of our lives in society to being nostalgic, poignant, and ironic. I have a collection of both completed and in the process of being completed paintings that depict gatherings of crowds as a thing...

Memory Beast  
Gallery Six - Memory Beast

Exhibition on Display: January 22, 2021 - March 20, 2021
Memory Beast is a project about storytelling. The stories we tell matter. Stories indicate what is important to us, they tell us who we are, and how we understand our relationship to the world around us. Stories create and maintain realities. Social realities, political realities, ecological realities. In Western culture, we have a problematic archetypal story of domination over nature, often called the progress narrative. These stories have brought us to a time of great ecological imbalance, in which we face climate change and mass extinction. From this viewpoint, what hope is there to be found, for a finite flourishing on a wounded earth?

Inspite of Everything  
Main Gallery - Inspite of Everything

Exhibition on Display: January 22 - Februry 27, 2021
Austin Lewis
My sculptures are inspired by phosphenes, the experience of seeing light without light actually entering the eye, which can be seen as flashes of light and sometimes complex 3D forms, that move and distort. I attempt to recreate this transcendent experience in real space by creating sculptural forms with parts that flow together in a way that creates visual movement to follow as the viewer moves around the sculpture.

Exhibition on Display: January 22 – March 20, 2021
Works by Kelly Berry
The Foodies series explores people and places of traditional street food and walk-up dining. Although unintentional, it can be viewed as counter to the trendy food truck scene. Some of the photographs have a documentary quality, while others are more fine art. I have no agenda when I approach these people and places. I simply photograph them as they present themselves. I chase and capture images from my memories and experiences while desperately hoping others will want to see them.

INSTALLING SOON – Artist Dan Corson's concept is based on airplanes, the migration patterns of birds, and the Fort Worth icon, the Texas Longhorn. A series of twelve footlong abstract forms resembling longhorns will be fabricated in frosted white, UV-stable, impact resistant acrylic and will be suspended from the concrete beams of the I-30 Bridge. The final design includes translucent abstract bird/longhorn sculptural components lit from within and angled to resemble a flock of birds flying out from the underside of the bridge. The structure supporting the components will be clamped to the concrete beams supporting the bridge and suspended above the median to clear truck height.

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
