Fort Works Art - New Meanings
A Solo Exhibition by Austin Uzor - Exhibition Dates: September 9, 2021 - November 6, 2021
Fall Gallery Night & Opening Reception: Saturday, September 11, 2021, 6 - 9 PM
Austin Uzor is a rising talent whose moody and atmospheric works are quietly revolutionizing the potential of contemporary painting. In his first solo exhibition, post-graduate school, Uzor transforms the gallery's entire first floor into a site-specific installation by building an immersive environment out of painting and sculpture. 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 House of Asterion: The Single-Family House  
Frost Gallery - The House of Asterion: The Single-Family House
Exhibition on Display: July 2 - August 7, 2021 | Works by Dennis Chiessa, Paul Dennehy, Don Gatzke, Elizabeth Kang
This exhibition presents a series of houses. Collectively, they challenge and push back on single-family housing trends that produce increasingly larger houses occupied by fewer and fewer people. It features built and speculative projects that reimagine the possibilities of this typology as it questions the necessity of large houses and our collective preconceptions of the house. It features seven houses presented through drawings, photographs, and models that range in size from 900 to 1,950 square feet. The work and the exhibition are inspired by Jorge Luis Borges' The House of Asterion in which the narrator, Asterion, describes his house as being "the same size as the world; or rather it is the world".

An Escape To A Hidden Lane  
Marlene/Spencer Hays Gallery - An Escape To A Hidden Lane
Exhibition on Display: July 2 - August 7, 2021 | Works by Maria Villanueva
My art practice that focuses on researching the human and natural ecologies that form, shift, and influence beliefs and truths. I draw from the disciplines of geology, geography, biology, and digital technology, aiming at more deeply connecting human beings to the natural and urban environments. I work with geographical data, virtual and augmented reality technologies, and natural elements like soil, rocks, and trees. I am inspired by Guy Debord’s idea of Psychogeography, which describes the psychological experience of exploring the city and illuminating forgotten, discarded, and marginalized aspects of hyperlocal communities. I construct sculpture installations, often site-specific, using found materials consisting of soil, plants, trash, or trees.

Rice and Lentil 2020  
Vista Gallery - Herbs, Spice and Everything Nice
Exhibition on Display: July 2 - August 7, 2021 | Works by Niva Parajuli
In this series, I explore the phenomenon of migration and acculturation using herbs, spices and plaster. In my studio, I mix spices and herbs used in domestic Nepali cooking with plaster and water. I knead, spread and lather the mix onto various platforms or mold. While the mixture cures, it becomes a form that retains the essence of its subcomponents and yet is uniquely itself. The exothermic reaction between water and plaster activates the aroma from within the spices and creates the ambience of a fragrant Nepali kitchen. The process of making these pieces is similar to that of cooking. I throw in spices and ingredients, “according to personal taste”, a common vernacular used in Nepalese recipes.

Dogs of the Southwest  
Gallery Three - Dogs of the Southwest
Exhibition on Display: July 2 - August 7, 2021 | Works by Sandy McGrath
Most artists paint what they love. I'm no different. I love all animals, but have a crazy love for dogs. I am also attracted to the pottery and rugs found in and around Santa Fe, New Mexico and therefore try to incorporate those shapes, designs, and colors into my work. I enjoy using bright, vivid colors with sharp, precise lines and work mostly in acrylics on canvas. I always start with a real life photo to sketch my subject. My subject transforms into a more contemporary creation, but still has the personality and look of the original real life subject. I like my painting surface to be very smooth and sleek without texture. In order to get that finish, I thin down my paint, but then have to add more layers to get vibrant colors.

Armando Sebastian  
Fort Worth Gallery - Parallel Universe
Exhibition on Display: May 21 - July 17, 2021
Works by Armando Sebastian
My first trip out of my home town was to Mexico City when I was 5 years old, there are a few things that I remember very clearly: our visit to Teotihuacan; the two pyramids of the Sun and the Moon, with stone carvings of snakes and humans all over the place, people praying, people picnicking, people selling all kinds of things. I remember the Cathedral and the Alameda Central while driving in my grandpa's old truck listening to Trio Ballads. Once when we were walking in downtown Mexico City I felt a mysterious presence in the air, I remember being so excited because my mom was always telling me tales about everything...

Gale Gibb  
Central Gallery - If You Listen, I Will Tell You A Story
Exhibition on Display: May 21 - July 17, 2021
Works by Gale Gibb
My individual stories have been developing over many years and as art have slowly amorphized everyday life into life “writ” large. I cherish connections, symbols, metaphorical creations and developed icons pointing to the small and large, the trivial and the universal. A story can give order to all of the fragmented and scattered chaos of the “now”. I grew up with stories being told and retold over the years. Sometimes those stories changed and created a whole flurry of new stories probably having little to do with truth. So in my own work, I tell stories that are sometimes personal and sometimes a simple statement on society at large.

Phantasmagoria  
BNSF Gallery - Phantasmagoria
Exhibition on Display: May 21 - July 17, 2021
Presented by House of Iconoclasts
We have lost an entire year on Phantasmagoria, the deep exploration ship that carried us prior to the Incident. The hypersleep chambers seemed to have wiped any recollection of our objectives. As we cautiously emerge, brushing the dust off of each other's backs, uncertain how to fully engage or move forward collectively as we once did, if we ever did. Now we must plot a new course together and discover what new possibilities await. What will keep us connected to accomplish our new mission? How will we thrive creatively in this new atmosphere?

Once a Day Swallow a Small Sun  
Main Gallery - Once a Day Swallow a Small Sun
Exhibition on Display: April 16, 2021 - June 26, 2021
Third Space DFW Juried Show
Once a Day Swallow a Small Sun focuses on reflections of the queer experience through health and well-being. The definition of what queer health means is broad to include multiple perspectives and allow artists to freely interpret this concept. There needs to be creative attention to this aspect of the queer experience because health is often a taboo topic to discuss both within and outside of the LGBTQIA+ community. The title of this exhibition is taken from a verse in a Sam Sax poem: On PrEP or on Prayer ["when i say pre-exposure prophylaxis"] By Sam Sax

REBECCA LOW SCULPTURE GALLERY  
Rebecca Low Sculpture Gallery, Inc - Featured Artist: Tatara Siegel
Gallery Hours: 11-4 Wednesday-Saturday, Or any time by Appointment
Tatara Siegel is our featured artist and her sculptures are a must see! She has always been fascinated and motivated by asking questions and answering those questions with new questions. Analyzation has always been a tool that she has found to be invaluable to her process of making art. It allows her to, metaphorically, pick away at surface layers of information and eventually come to a root of truth. Her work consists of mixed media sculpture, focusing mostly in glass and ceramic. The work consists of levels of different narratives between the viewer's perception, the materials being utilized, and the stage in which the work is placed.

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.

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
