Art List

This week there's a screening of what looks to be a pretty incredible short documentary about the Lake Como neighborhood in Fort Worth, directed by the Fort Worth husband wife team of Betsy and Carl Crumb. It's at the Rose Marine Theater on Thursday, December 3 (can't seem to find a starting time, but try 7PM). See the trailer here. PS: just got confirmation from Ben Rogers at Metrognome that it is, in fact, at 7PM.

Did you hear they've just broke ground to build a new $185-Million Museum at Victory Park called the Perot Museum of Nature & Science?


Reading between the lines
Kim Cadmus Owens
Holly Johnson Gallery
Thursday, Dec. 3, 5-8 pm

States of Exception
Gallery walk-through and open studios:
Thursday, Dec. 3, 5:30-8:30 pm

I saw this a few weeks ago. Pretty spare and artsty-fartsy, though the MVRDV video about vertical farming (entitled Pig City) was very thought-provoking.


Holiday Presence
Kettle Art
Opens Friday, Dec. 4, in the evening.

Kettle's "fifth annual 'Holiday Presence' exhibit featuring original, affordable art and unique gifts."

Billy Hassell
William Campbell Contemporary Art
Opens Friday, Dec. 4, 5-8 pm

Billy seems kind of like a technicolor David Bates. I like it. Speaking of Bates, are you familiar with his stuff? It's pretty incredible -- he's one of our finest North Texas artists. Check some out here. More goodness here. A New York Times review here. I just yoinked one for the feature image above.


Rebecca Carter and Thomas Feulmer
500X Gallery
Opens Saturday, Dec. 5, 7-10 pm

Wow on the Rebecca Carter stuff (cool web site home page design, too). Combined with Thomas Feulmer, it should be a good & odd collection.

Art for the Masses
Dahlia Woods Gallery
Opens Saturday, Dec. 5, 6-8:30 pm

John Hartley
Mighty Fine Arts
Opens Saturday, Dec. 5, 6-9 pm
