Matthew Bourbon  
Fort Worth Gallery - Hive
Exhibition on Display: September 10 - October 30, 2021 | Works by Matthew Bourbon
For several years now I have been painting basic abstract shapes as containers for the human body, architecture, industrial objects, and various other natural forms. I wonder about these seemingly disparate categories of things, and how they share many similarities of form and substance. To focus my paintings, I have corralled my practice into a series of nominal heads. The “head” I choose to name each painting is a nod to my studio ruminations and the seat of our intellect that we imagine residing in our brains. Essentially, I am using my painting as a place to undo some of my impulses to think of myself as a solely unique human, separate from all other things. With a bent toward the philosophic, my work is made from a wondering about this...

Heyd Fontenot  
BNSF Gallery - Civil Lies
Exhibition on Display: September 10 - October 30, 2021 | Works by Erin Stafford and Heyd Fontenot
CIVIL LIES, a two-person art exhibition at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, opens September 10 and runs through October 30, 2021. Texas-based interdisciplinary artists Heyd Fontenot and Erin Stafford each present their complex artworks in a thematic and aesthetic dialog. Visually delightful, yet politically provocative, the artists tread dangerously through a minefield of questioning power structures, nationalism, history, gender, and the false promises of comfort-in-conformity. Recognized as a figurative painter and former director of the artists’ residency CentralTrak, Heyd Fontenot presents a continuous 68 foot wall-scaled painting featuring multiple figures and a plea for empathy.

Brock/Transystems Gallery-Breaking Through: Portraits, Prints, Paper
Exhibition on Display: September 10 - October 30, 2021 | Works by Laura Post
My work redefines portraiture by expanding the boundaries of the print medium. I reconsider the stability provided by a matrix, used to create multiple prints, to produce varied outcomes. This generates a new whole from the repetition of parts, like unique paper sculptures and pulp paintings. The artwork interrogates the history of printmaking and papermaking, as well as their voice in contemporary art. By combining matrices that span the origins of the medium to the newest technologies, I create multi-faceted paper sculptures to explore how individuals are shaped by their familial network. This includes non-Western and Western traditional print processes, handmade paper, and post-digital techniques like 3D scans to expand the definition...

Gallery Three - The Grammar of Animacy
Exhibition on Display: August 13 - October, 2021 | Works by Angela Faz
Who is water? If water could talk, what would they say? What might the West Fork and Clear Fork River bodies remember when meeting the great Arkikosa River (Trinity River) in Dallas? The Grammar of Animacy is the foundation of the work with the New Stories: New Futures project called "Remembering: Water has a memory." The exhibition's title, The Grammar of Animacy, was derived from Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants by Robin Wall Kimmerer, a scientist and enrolled member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation. In Braiding Sweetgrass, the author describes how English does not give us many tools for respecting animacy.

Other works in the show pivot away from the loud and expressive as in Eye In The Sky, a softer, quieter drawing of ancient and modern amphibians alongside the moon,

Jungseok Oh  
Central Gallery - Record
Exhibition on Display: July 23 - September 4, 2021 | Works by Jungseok Oh
I usually create sculptures inspired by my daily life and my RECORD series also started with my personal experience which was extremely tough. These works of art are a kind of recording of the species which are facing the risk of extinction. The sculptures capture and highlight the pains experienced by these disappearing lives. I weld steel wires, which are very strong and indestructible, and this reflects my obsession and fear of the loss of life. All living things share a connection. The creatures are part of Nature. It's time to be aware that selfish and reckless destructions of other's lives by us will eventually lead to our own demise because we humans are part of the Nature as well.

A Solo Exhibition by Austin Uzor - Exhibition Dates: September 11, 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.

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.

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
