Mikey Hernandez  
Fort Worth Gallery - Transcending
Exhibition on Display: March 24 - April 29, 2023 | Works by Mikey Hernandez
I make process driven, large-scale, non-representational works on paper. Because my works are process-driven, discussing the process is essential. I started each piece with a wet-on-wet technique using watercolor, ink, gouache and water to create a pathway of color, forms and textures. When I was finished, I walked away and allowed the pigment to shift, water to evaporate and for the painting to dry. This was exhilarating as I worked with a process that allowed me to have control and relinquish control. When I returned, I decided if the first stage achieved the results I wanted. If it didn't, I put the artwork to the side and started again. Once I achieved the results that I wanted, I responded intuitively to the color and marks made on the paper by using chalk...
Dewane Hughes  
Rebecca Low Sculpture Gallery - Spring Gallery Night - Saturday
Gallery night is our most popular event of the year. Rebecca Low Sculpture Gallery has a diverse collection with over a dozen artists on exhibition. Please join us in welcoming our newest artist, Dewane Hughes. A distinguished professor of sculpture, Dewane's work has always dealt with language. Influenced heavily by the poets of the Beat Generation, as well as subsequent linguistic scholars such as Noam Chomsky and Marshall McLuhan, he tries to create a formal reality that speaks to the essence of communication. He contends that all "art" happens in the space between the object and the viewer. Offering large-to-small-scale pieces, they would be a fabulous addition to any collection. Between new pieces and new artists, this is going to be a spectacular show and we can't wait to share all these exquisite works with you!

BNSF Railway Gallery - Reverberation
Exhibition on Display: March 3 - April 29, 2023 | Works by Jay Chung
For five years, I have traveled to refugee camps throughout the world. In each country, the same extreme conditions have forced a new perspective in how I see the human condition and, ultimately, how I reflect on my artwork. Recently my work ruminates on how we can visualize human will and our aspirations and effectively present them. My processes for creating these series of pieces is embodied in meditation, deep rest, focused thought, and integration of quantum mechanics and the resonance of the physicality of our bodies. Take a deeper look. Humans are vibrations, and we respond to the echoes and reverberations and resonate with others. Everything life interacts with sends its seismic waves just by existing.
CTRL+X: Composed/desCompuestos  
Marlene/Spencer Hays Gallery - CTRL+X: Composed/desCompuestos
Exhibition on Display: March 3 - April 29, 2023 | Works by Gil Rocha and Cande Aguilar
CTRL+X is the keyboard shortcut for "cut." In this exhibit, CTRL+X represents artwork with a "rasquache," or DIY aesthetic, common in border, Mexican-American or Chicano working-class communities. The artworks are composed of often scavenged materials and concepts taken from cultural representations of ordinary, everyday objects and people. The artists in this joint exhibition, Gil Rocha and Cande Aguilar, are native to south Texas and have exhibited their artwork widely on the national and international level. Rocha and Aguilar create artworks that give the impression of being improvised, implying an almost-uncomposed (or descompuesto) resolution. Curated by Maritza Bautista

Tejuola Ori Oke Osin  
Fort Works Art - Michele Tejuola Turner: Lines Of Descent
Exhibition on Display: March 25th - April 29, 2023 | Works By: Michele Tejuola Turner
This is a retrospective with works spanning a period of over four decades and will be an intimate display of around a dozen gourds, each one recounting personal and collective narratives. Lines of Descent opens on Gallery Night, Saturday, March 25, 2023, with a reception from 12:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Tejuola does not fit into any established categories within the art world. Her chosen media is American gourds and African calabashes, which are carved, and hand-painted with narratives of ancestry relating to the African and African American experience. She elevates this traditional craft above that of just an artisan into one of an artist. This is done through her intricate and sophisticated figuration coupled with design elements that together create a...
Fort Works Art - The Ruins of Burg Worth
Exhibition on Display: March 25 - April 29, 2023 | Works By: Joshua Goode
Goode's first show at the gallery will feature a collection of created artifacts and remnants of an "ancient" past, while incorporating elements of performance art and an interactive installation. This exhibition opens on Gallery Night, Saturday, March 25, 2023. It is a reimagined history of Fort Worth - one where our city sits upon an ancient fortress both destroyed and preserved by the eruption of Eagle Mountain. By creating sarcophagi and various remains reminiscent of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D., Goode creates a new and imagined world that is full of extinct animals, objects, and artifacts. He challenges what we have learned throughout history in his development of these fictitious civilizations. Through his own research of local culture and his...

The group is presenting an exhibition titled, "Voices of 3rd Saturday Art 2023," at the Bernice Coulter Templeton Gallery, Texas Wesleyan University, 1415 E. Vaughn Blvd., Fort Worth, Texas 76105
Something Else: A Retrospective  
Frost Gallery - Something Else: A Retrospective

Exhibition on Display: February 3 - March 25, 2023 | Works by Bill Barter

I make things that I like. After many years of looking at art, contemporary art in particular, I have liked best work which is abstract with little or no recognizable imagery and has "something else" about it, some arrangement of formal qualities that grabs me. I have worked in oil and monotype, now exclusively oil, in a constant attempt to achieve that "something else."

Artspace111 - Western Modernity | Ed and Linda Blackburn
Exhibition on Display: March 25, 2023 – April 29, 2023 | • Opening Reception FWADA Spring Gallery Night, March 25th
The duo spent most of their careers in Fort Worth becoming important fixtures in the North Texas Art Community, advancing the history of contemporary Texas art. In 1962, the pair met in the art department at the University of Texas Austin. After individual stints in New York and Berkeley, California, the two married and drove the extensive drive from California to Fort Worth to teach at the Fort Worth Art Center, later to be called the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. Both began teaching figure and portrait painting classes, while Ed was also a part time guard as well as an installation assistant. As the Modern evolved, so did the Blackburn's careers. The two taught, exhibited, and curated all while continuing to paint

Moon Wobble  
Cufflink Art - possible magic
Exhibition on Display: March 26 through May 21, 2022 | Adam Fung
Adam Fung's exhibition, possible magic, examines how we navigate our trajectory within the Anthropocene's precarious states. Primarily using painting as means to survey the condition of the planet, Fung utilizes an array of research interests that touch upon issues such as eco-anxiety, climate change, the history of landscape imagery, and interconnected systems also known as hyperobjects. Intentionally working with oil paint, these slow moving, layered surfaces are a resistance to the slickness, speed, and expectations of the digital world or media we encounter daily. Each painting is executed with deliberate attention to surface, saturated color pallets, paint application, variety of linen textures, and the use of absorbent or reflective grounds.

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
