Maegan Kirschner  
Texas Artists Coalition - Artist Spotlight

Featured Artist: Maegan Kirschner
I am an artist that uses industrial and recyclable materials to create artwork that is considered mixed media. Paints, papers, and metal become expressive parts of the overall project. My work is of the abstract genre and becomes fluid as it is conceived. The work focuses on canvas being the base, but I branch out to sculpture pieces as well. I have multiple sclerosis (MS) which can create a challenge physically creating the work. The process of thinking out a project to physically creating allows an outlet for physical, mental, and cognitive therapy in living with MS.

Scent of Broq_pa  
Frost Gallery - Scent of Broq_pa
Exhibition on Display: May 28th - June 26th
Works by Ziesook You
Broqpa is the name of a small village in Nepal. Ziesook first learned of it from a TV documentary, The Last Empire. Ziesook was moved by what she learned about a small village located at the end of the Silk Road in Nepal named Broq-pa. In Broq-pa, the symbolic meaning of flowers is very special. In the Nepalese culture, flowers symbolize love, happiness, and appreciation for God. Broq-pa’s women are committed to growing flowers in their garden and decorate their hair with flowers every day. Ziesook wanted to incorporate this traditional symbolism from Broq-pa into her work and into her own personal life.

Works by John Storm
John Storm creates a magpie collection of bits and pieces of daily life, artistic influences, and memories. He embraces a playfulness, openness, and serendipity in the moment of creating. The influence of outsider art, wabi-sabi, imperfection and street art, fuel John's quest for a pure child-like freedom of expression. John’s drawings, paintings and collage work embody his vibrant creative approach which sees everything as possible artistic inspiration. The imagery, symbolism, and color palette of his work take the viewer on a visual journey to experience their own memories and reference points. John ultimately wants the viewer... ???

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?

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.

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.

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
