Last Friday I went to the opening of the Art in the Metroplex show at the Ft. Worth Creative Arts Center, where my piece “Anomaly” was included in the exhibit.

A tradition in the area since 1983, the show was founded by a group of artists including Beth Lea Clardy, in collaboration with Texas Christian University Art Department faculty and staff. In 2014, the show was moved to the Fort Worth Community Arts Center. This year, over 200 artists entered the competition and Juror Peter Doroshenko of the Dallas Contemporary selected 34 pieces of the 600 submitted. (source:  fwcac.com).

The Ft. Worth Creative Arts Center is located right in the museum district of Ft. Worth, right by the Amon Carter Museum and the Will Rogers Memorial Center, and just a half block from the Kimbell Art Museum and the Modern Art Museum of Ft. Worth.

The show is up through October 29, so stop by and see it if you’re near downtown Ft. Worth.  There are some fantastic exhibits in the nearby museums (including Kahinde Wiley at the Modern), so make a day of it!

  1. I live in Dallas, but I love Ft. Worth! I would move there in a heartbeat. I feel like the Ft. Worth culture is much more laid back. And there is a better appreciation for the arts in Ft. Worth.

    1. Yes, I like the laid-back feel, too, as well as the strong arts presence. This was my first time exhibiting in Ft. Worth – but maybe more to follow!
