Edge of a Story  
Vista Gallery - Edge of a Story
Exhibition on Display: April 16, 2021 - June 26, 2021
Works by Dan Jian
My work explores landscape as a motif and metaphor that conveys a depth of meaning through the reductive representation of form. As an immigrant, I find landscape acquires meaning through memories. Through reflection and recollection, we are the subjects overwriting a landscape’s original narrative while holding the potential of all future memory. The current work draws pictorial references from Buddhist mural painting in Tang dynasty caves, China (Mogao Caves at Dunhuang), in which stories and narratives are constantly shifting due to the flattened and sometimes ambiguous background.

AEROCACTUS  
Frost Gallery - Aerocactus
Exhibition on Display: April 16, 2021 - June 26, 2021
Works by Peter Harrington
An aesthetic influence for me has been with the Imagist School of Chicago, however, my work has taken its own path into uncharted territory. My paintings are a kind of Kabuki of characters enacting a brief, poetic drama. Often in an iconic, totemic expression. An unlikely, but inevitable intersection of elements from primitive nature and the human presence, toward a philosophical whole. Friends have commented on the humor and inventiveness of the way that things are put together, pointing to the pure ideas behind the resolved work. Some years spent living in Zen monastic communities...

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

Artspace111 - The Jane Series

Exhibition on Display: May 13 - June 26, 2021 Opening Reception May 13, 2021, 5-8 PM
Artspace111 is excited to introduce The Jane Series by Layla Luna. Through abstracted colorful geometric paintings, Luna uses the concept of pie charts and mud pies to address the over-analysis of our daily lives in the digital age. Luna compares the pie chart shape to the shape of the nostalgic childhood mud pie; a symbol of the simplicity of life, childhood freedom, and creating with abandon. Through many facets in the work, Luna subtly hints at female artist empowerment. The Jane Series references her inherited middle name, Jane; a name she shares with her cousin, maternal grandmother, mother, and daughter.

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.

TranSystems Gallery - Between Monuments
Exhibition on Display: March 5 – April 10, 2021
Works by Sarah DePrentis
Between Monuments is an exhibition of new sculptural works by Texas-based artist Sarah DePetris. It is based on a series of​ ​“monuments” found beneath Texas highway underpasses and abandoned construction sites. Contrasting contemporary ruins with fragments and monuments from antiquity, the works reimagine overlooked and discarded piles of rubble as icons and objects of potential. They are suspended between destruction and resurrection; the made and unmade. Often site-specific, vibrant, and defying gravity, they create accessible bridges between the real and imagined.

Works by Jose "Mr. Lonely" Salinas
Jose "Mr. Lonely" Salinas' first solo exhibition, From Behind the Walls portrays his life, dreams, and regrets during his time incarcerated in prison, sharing his struggles with addiction and longing for home from "behind the walls." Salinas’ work is greatly influenced by and embodies Chicano imagery and the work in From Behind the Walls infuses those elements with vignettes of an imprisoned person's life and fantasies: religious icons, temptations, and family members. Images of hope and hopelessness weave throughout Salinas' work and he states that his artwork became a source of therapy, allowing him to stay focused.

Exhibition on Display: March 26 – May 15, 2021
Works by Justin Burns
Kopperl, Texas like many small towns, is just a small blip on a map and most people would never know it was there. I wanted to visually showcase the beauty of the decay of this small town. Each artwork has little hints of either personal family stories or someone familiar with the community would know. Eventually these spaces will disappear and will become a distant memory of a time of how things used to be and will disappear with the people who hold special memories to them. These structures were designed for purpose and a force of permanence and yet the ruins linger as a reminder when the train used to stop in Kopperl, TX.

Works by Melissa Gamez Herrera
Te Digo Que Lo Llevo En La Sangre (I’m telling you that I carry it in my blood) is a working portrait of women workers who are involved in labor rights advocacy within the context of the maquiladora (assemblage factory) industry in Mexico. The phrase Te Digo Que Lo Llevo En La Sangre comes from a conversation I had with a former maquiladora worker, named Pilar Perez, in which she details her experience working for the maquiladora, and her experience in organizing workers and activism. The resulting artwork I make includes photographs, handmade books, video, sculpture and works on paper.

Works by Lindy Chambers
What is really going on here? Outside the city are strange things that frighten people. It gets really dark and you can see the stars among other things that are unusual. Things you drive by, don't notice, take for granted, don't experience because you look but don't see. Is what you look at the truth of what you see? You have to engage in my large paintings, be part of them, ask questions of what you are looking at, the great and different objects in rural Texas. Objects never noticed, homes to animals, trailers with inhabitants that leave influences on the land. Hopeful nature, scary nature, experience, see, feel, be part of it.

The Fort Worth Community Arts Center welcomes two distinct emerging artists Jihye Han and Ben Muñoz to the Shelia and Houston Hill Courtyard Gallery.

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.

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
