    Summer of Art – 2022

    After a busy spring (shows in Dallas, Fort Worth, and Granbury), summer 2022 is heating up as well (sorry – couldn’t resist).

    “Recountable” at Bath House Cultural Center in Dallas

    This spring I was included in a juried show at Bath House Cultural Center as part of the ART214 Juried Exhibition. Enrique Fernández Cervantes, Visual Arts Coordinator / Curator at the BHCC contacted me after that show to invite me to participate in a new show he was putting together, Recountable, which focuses on the use of narrative and story-telling. The show, which opens July 2, 2022, features 15 DFW/North Texas Artists, including me.

    Dinner Table,” which I last showed in Fort Worth in 2016 at the late lamented Gallery 414, will be on exhibit, along with “Travelers,” painted in 2017.

    Exhibition Dates: July 2 – August 13, 2022
    Reception: Saturday, July 2 (5-7 PM) 
    Bath House Cultural Center: 521 E. Lawther Dr., Dallas, TX 75218

    9th Annual Texas Juried Exhibition at Artspace111

    I don’t mind saying, this one was a surprise. It’s been (ahem) several years since I’ve gotten in this show, which is always one of my favorites, whether I’m in it or not. The accepted piece is a painting of my friend of many years, Fort Worth Artist and Theater Wunderkind, John C. Moore. You just never know what a juror will (or won’t) respond to. Just glad to be part of the fun again!

    CHAOS8! 2022 at Ro2

    I was invited to participate in the CHAOS 7(?) small works show at Ro2 Art in Dallas a couple of years ago, then Covid reared its ugly head. Now it’s back, and I got invited again! Artists submit 1 – 4 works 12 inches or smaller. Details are still rolling in on this one – plus I’m currently working on small pieces. More when I know more!

    Exhibition Dates: Aug 6 – Sept 19, 2022
    Reception: Saturday, Aug 6 (times TBA)
    Ro2 Art: 1531 S Ervay, Dallas, TX, 76102

    2.62 Persons: A House; A Home; A Statistic; A Family

    I’ve been fortunate enough to get into several shows this spring, including two in Dallas as part of the ART214 exhibits, and two in the Rio Brazos show in Granbury, sponsored by Tarleton State University.

    Closer to home, Texas Artists Coalition’s upcoming exhibit, 2.62 Persons: A House; A Home; A Statistic; A Family will include three of my paintings. To say I was shocked all three of my entries were accepted would be an understatement! Two are old favorites from a couple of years old, but the third is fresh off the easel, so to speak.

    The exhibit will be shown at the newly rechristened Arts Fort Worth (formerly known as Fort Worth Community Arts Center). Arts Fort Worth has remodeled some of the galleries and the space is really impressive! As has historically been the case, there will be multiple openings all happening on the first Friday of the month, so be sure and wander through the galleries to see what else is going on.

    Hope to see you there!

    Exhibition Dates: April 1-30, 2022
    Reception: Friday, April 1 (6-9 PM)
    Address: Arts Fort Worth, 1300 Gendy St, Fort Worth, TX 76107

    ART214 in Dallas

    I was surprised and pleased to be notified I got *two* pieces accepted in this year’s ART214 Juried Exhibition, sponsored by the Dallas Office of Arts And Culture. ART214 is part of Dallas Arts Month, a city-wide celebration of Dallas arts.

    Puzzle,” which has been exhibited in Fort Worth a couple of times, will be on exhibit at the Bath House Cultural Center, at 521 E. Lawther Dr., Dallas, TX 75218, on White Rock Lake (not far from where my lovely bride grew up).

    Exhibition Dates: April 2-30, 2022
    Reception: Saturday, April 2 (5-7 PM) 

    Men on Sleeper; acrylic on canvas, 34 x 60 in, 2019

    Men on Sleeper,” will be on display at the Oak Cliff Cultural Center, at 223 W Jefferson Blvd, Dallas, TX 75208. This was last shown at my solo show, “Then and Now,” back in the fall of 2020, at the FWCAC (now renamed ArtsFortWorth). If you missed it because of the Covid lockdown, don’t feel bad…most people did.

    Exhibition Dates: April 23 – May 21, 2022
    Reception: Saturday, April 23, 2022 

    And that’s just the beginning…I’m in three other shows this spring: two in Fort Worth, and one in Granbury. More on those later. I’ll update this post with links once I’ve written something about them.

    Fall 2021 shows – updated

    Men drinking wine (cold room), acrylic on canvas, 30 x 40 in, 2020

    I’m happy to announce that I had two (two!!) pieces accepted to the 2021 CCAN Juried Exhibition, at the Center for Contemporary Arts, in Abilene, Texas. Show opens September 30, and will be up until November 27. This is a great venue – I had a piece in the 2019 Juried Exhibition (2020 was – well, we all know how 2020 was), and I was looking forward to entering this year. Imagine my surprise when I got two pieces in!

    UPDATE – I got an email yesterday informing me that “Men drinking wine” (shown above) has been chosen as a prize winner for the 2021 CCAN Juried Exhibition by juror Liz Trosper. At this point I don’t know *what* the prize is, but needless to say I’m jazzed!

    The Center for Contemporary Arts is open Tuesday through Saturday: 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., closed Sunday and Monday, and open 5 – 8 p.m. every second Thursday for ArtWalk.

    Summer 2021 shows

    While some house projects have kept me from being in the studio as often as I’d like, I’ve been included in several shows throughout this year. Currently (or soon to open) shows include the following:

    New Texas Talent XXVIII at Craighead Green

    Juror Christina Rees, Editor-in-Chief at Glasstire chose my painting “Untitled (news of the day)” for inclusion in New Texas Talent XXVIII at Craighead Green Gallery in Dallas. The show opened on July 11 and runs through August 22, 2021. Thanks to Christina Rees for the node, and Craighead Green for sponsoring. There is some fantastic work in this show.

    Art Room’s Now | Contemporary 2021 at FWCAC

    Juror Dr. Lauren Cross selected a recently completed painting, “Woman and man with roses,” for Art Room’s Now | Contemporary 2021. Show opens on July 23 and runs through September 4, 2021 at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, located at 1300 Gendy St., Fort Worth, TX 76107.

    I was in several other shows this spring as well, which have ended (though some are still visible on-line).
