It’s become as much a rite of a Fort Worth spring as the ubiquitous blooming of bluebonnets along every North Texas highway and byway: Spring Gallery Night.
So much of Spring Gallery Night remains comfortably the same. It’s still sponsored by Fort Worth’s arty perennial, the Fort Worth Art Dealers Association – it of the catchy acronym, FWADA. It still will unfold at every willing and available local art gallery, or commercial space. And it will still offer a socially-conducive mix of gallery talks, browsing, and various special events, all built around every aspect of the local visual art scene.
If one is looking for a waterfront-wide tour of what Fort Worth’s art world is currently up to, then Spring Gallery Night’s more than 40 galleries and museums will provide just that colorful snapshot. But Spring Gallery Night also entices various retailers, even restaurants, to lend their walls for at least one night in Spring to the noble service of displaying fine art.
If variety in fine visual art is what you’re craving, then you need look no further than the diverse lineup of exhibits that Spring Gallery Night will showcase. Just a teaser sampling reflects an eye-popping range: From the Amon Carter Museum of American Art’s continued luscious menu of pieces as part of its on-going Art and Appetite: American Painting, Culture, and Cuisine, or Artes de la Rosa Gallery at the Rose Marine Theater’s Transcendent Death Journeys (displaying the art of the Mexican-American painter, Anita Rodriguez), to the all in the family artistic prowess of Artspace 111’s Sibling Rivalry: Daniel Blagg, Dennis Blagg, Doug Blagg, and Woodrow Blagg, or how about Rebecca Low Sculptural Metal Gallery & Studio’s New Works by Nic Noblique, to the William Campbell Contemporary Art gallery’s latest show: Enigmas: New Drawings by Jake Gilson.
