The Modern Staff Art Show  
Marlene/Spencer Hays Gallery - Dance Like a Rodeo Tornado
Exhibition on Display: January 13 - February 25, 2023 | Works by artists of the West
The "West" is a physical place defined by the U.S. government as a region west of the American Great Plains. As with other regional boundaries of the United States, time and movement have made that boundary an uncertain mark on the map. This too holds true of our notions of the West - a construct of history, myth, and our own perceptions. Amon Carter pitched a slogan for Fort Worth, rather than relying on longitudes and geography, he evoked the West as a state of mind, steeped in Romanticism: Where the West Begins. Dance Like a Rodeo Tornado is a Western & Rodeo themed exhibition comprised of artworks by thirty-two artists exploring the history, people, landscape, wildlife, and fantasy of the areas in the western regions and reflecting the...

The Space Between  
Artspace111 - The Space Between | Matt Clark and William Greiner
Exhibition on Display: January 19, 2023 – March 18, 2023 | Opening Reception Thursday, January 19 6-8 pm
With work focused on the abstract and organic, Matt Clark brings thoughtful design to the expertly captured landscape photography of William Greiner. The series was theorized after a post-pandemic road trip, where the pair gained inspiration from the rugged elevations of New Mexico and the burnished highways of Texas. Clark and Greiner explore the space between abstract painting and representational photography by combining their respective mediums. The original photographs of the American West created by Greiner meet with acrylic painted patterns by Clark to create intricate routes through the composition. Exploring new means of collaboration, the duo delves into the space between past and present, need and want, the physical and...

If I Would Have Did, I Would Have Done  
Fort Worth Gallery - If I Would Have Did, I Would Have Done
Exhibition on Display: January 6 - February 25, 2023 | Works by Joshua Steven Bryant
The artworks are a continuation of Bryant’s research on the intersection of queerness, disability, and community. The show is a blend of paintings, sculptures, and digital work. Featuring objects at varying degrees of manipulation, they use the domestic as a locale to consider the function of a queer body within the “American Dream.” Formally, the artist uses intuitive processes to compose with pops of texture and color as a mirror to how they must adjust their identity to each space in order to create a sense of comfort. Conceptually, this introspective continuation highlights the intersection of Joshua’s idealism, egotism, and regret while reviewing how a community might look free from the pressure of mastery, preconceptions, and expectations.

Appropriated Portrayals  
TranSystems Gallery - Appropriated Portrayals
Exhibition on Display: January 6 - February 25, 2023 | Works by Kelly Waller
I believe that art is a reflection of time and place. I consider the body of work to be self-portraits, as they reflect my intuitive decision-making in the arrangement and form of the piece. The imagery throughout the work reflects a sense of place. All the materials are found in antique or resale shops in cities I have lived or places in which I have had personal associations. Through these works, I am trying to relate to the idea that we are a product of our own environment and the decisions in life we make. We are also products of the media that we choose to consume. Using magazine imagery and physical alterations, I hope to reference the censorship and control that people have over media as well as the way in which we censor ourselves from other people.

Flora  
Arts Fort Worth - Flora
Exhibition on Display: January 6 - 28, 2023 | Works by Claire Moore
This series of paintings is inspired by a return to nature prompted by the pandemic and a move to Texas following over a decade in New York City. As health concerns regarding indoor gatherings escalated, the amount of time Claire spent outdoors grew. Long walks and new hobbies like gardening provided solace and a reprieve from stress, grief, and the monotony of domestic environments. Extended periods digging in the soil and tending a garden, coupled with a sense of confinement as we sheltered in place, inspired new tightly cropped compositions investigating previously overlooked details of plant life. Dense foliage envelops the canvas simultaneously evoking comfort, akin to the pressure of a weighted blanket, and claustrophobia.

More Than This...  
Frost Gallery - More Than This...
Exhibition on Display: December 2, 2022-Janauary 28, 2023 | Curated by Anne Allen
"Go and sit in your cell, and your cell will teach you everything", Abba Moses, as recounted by Annie Dillard in Pilgrim at Tinker Creek. "The simpler the moment in front of you the more anxious I become. I could be doing something, I should be doing something. But a life under constant threat of novelty isn't a life; it's exhaustion. ...I give myself the chance to remember that this is wrong-that most of life is ordinary; that ordinary isn't the enemy but instead something nourishing and unavoidable, the bedrock upon which the rest of experience ebbs and flows", Mike Powell, from Washing Dishes, The New York Times Magazine. "The secret of seeing is, then, the pearl of great price. If I thought he could teach me to find it and keep it forever I would stagger...

How to Build a Rainbow  
Dale Brock and Visiting Angels Gallery - How to Build a Rainbow
Exhibition on Display: December 2, 2022 - January 28, 2023 | Works by Sarah DePetris
How to Build a Rainbow is an exhibition of new multi-dimensional drawings by Dallas-based artist Sarah DePetris. The works capture the energy and potential of the almost and the not-yet-made. With imagery of found stones, rainbows, bricks, and abstracted landscapes, the exhibition reimagines its subjects as icons and objects of potential. Exploring the distance between absence and presence, the work transforms the gallery into an immersive space of possibility. The play between positive and negative space in the 2D works balances the visual weightlessness of the suspended casts and contrasts heavier and more grounded marks and subjects. The exhibition makes the heavy light and blurs the boundary between the real and imagined.

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
