A couple more chances to see some recent work coming up soon!
I’ll have two larger pieces on display Gallery Night (September 7) in the TAC Impromptu Invitational Fall 2019 show at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, 1300 Gendy Street, Fort Worth 76107. Opening reception is 6 – 9 PM. Gallery Night runs from 12 noon until 9 PM at most participating galleries/exhibition spaces and is always a lot of fun.
A little farther afield, I’ve got a recent piece in the Abilene Center for Contemporary Arts National Juried Competition, 220 Cypress St, Abilene, TX 79601. The open reception is September 14. For more information, go to the CCAN website.

I’m excited to announce I’m in several shows this summer at the Fort Worth Community Art Center.
I’ll be showing 2 works on paper during Solo Show[Down] 2019, juried by Christina Rees, Editor-in-Chief of Glasstire, the online Texas art magazine. One of the pieces is one of my favorite cat paintings ever.
The show runs from July 5 – July 24, 2019, with an opening 6 – 9 PM on July 5, and because of the 4th of July holiday, a reception 6 – 9 PM on July 12. come!
In addition I found out yesterday I’ve gotten two large pieces in the 14th Annual TAC Juried Exhibit, juried by Margery Gossett, director at Artspace111. This show opens August 2, 2019, with a reception 6 – 9 PM that night. I’ll also be participating in a show at the FWCAC that has been curated by my friend Barbara Koerble. More on both of these as I get the details.

Just saw that Flickr, where most images on this site are hosted, is down for maintenance. Which means no images in my various galleries.
Until this maintenance is complete, you can visit my other site: https://www.rontaylorcrouch.com. It should be just fine.
Tue, 19 Feb 2019 04:14:56 +0000New version of RonTaylorCrouch.com coming!
I’m in the final phases of getting ready to launch a new version of the RonTaylorCrouch.com website, which promises to have a much cleaner look and much better image management. I’m also looking into using the service to host the images that appear on this site.
Mon, 21 Jan 2019 16:44:58 +0000Gallery 414 to close
It is with great sadness that I share that I learned yesterday that Gallery 414, which has been serving the Fort Worth art community for almost 24 years, is closing.
As stated on the 414 website, “In 1995, founders John Hartley, Adele Krause and Razz Fiesler opened Gallery 414 as a space to promote and exhibit contemporary art in a variety of media and subject matter by new and established artists.” Sadly, Raza Fiesler passed away last year.
I missed a call yesterday from Adele Krause; her voice mail said “I need to talk to you about something important.” Knowing that the gallery space belonged to the estate of Razz Fiesler, who’d passed away last year, I knew the future of the gallery was somewhat up in the air. I called Adele back and she confirmed what I suspected – the estate had decided they could no longer support the gallery.
Their next show, scheduled to run from February 9 to March 3, 2019, will be their last. Unfortunately, the show that was to have followed, which would have me and Ann Ekstrom, has been cancelled.
If you’ve been there recently, you’ve noticed the once slightly ragged neighborhood now sports high-end condos on all sides of the lot Gallery 414 sits on. Hell, I can’t fault the folks who manage the estate – that property is now worth a lot more empty that the gallery itself. I would have done the same thing.
So this is a long way of saying, the show I had planned will not be happening in March as I’d previously announced. Ann and I are exploring other venues to have a show together. Unfortunately, because of scheduling, it may not be until next year. I’ll keep you posted.
In the meantime, my heartfelt thanks to John and Adele, and Gallery 414, for their support of me at a time when I was re-establishing myself as a painter, and needed a place to show, and their support of the arts community in general.
Gallery 414 will be missed.
