Art Worth Coming October 2023

Art Worth Coming October 2023



Art Worth, a festival on the lawn at Will Rogers Memorial Center, will mark its second year, October 20, 21 & 22.  A celebration of visual arts and classical music, Art Worth will feature exhibitions by 80 Artists who have been selected from hundreds of applicants; these artists were chosen for their superlative level of skill, in 3-D disciplines ranging from glass and metal work to wood and clay, as well as 2-D media, such as painting, print-making, and photography. 

 In addition to Artists’ displays, Art Worth will also offer live-demonstrations of glass-blowing, metal pours, potters’ wheel, & wood-turning. The three-day event will also showcase Classical Music performances by area ensembles ranging from elementary and high schools to TCU’s Opera Studio and professional companies. A full selection of Food & Libations will be available, too! 

The second annual edition of Art Worth will take place Friday, October 20, and Saturday, October 21, from 10am to 6pm; open hours for Sunday, October 22, are from 11am to 4pm.  

The 80 invited artists were selected from hundreds of applicants by jurors, Janelle Montgomery (curator/researcher);  Pamela Summers (artist); Rebecca Low (gallery owner), and Amy Bishop (WRR radio host). Artists from across the United States, as well as North Texas, were chosen for the outdoor exhibition.    

Produced by ArtWorks Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Art Worth is Fort Worth’s newest fine art and fine craft festival. The festival is free and open to the public. “We’re excited to stage this event in the heart of the Cultural District. Art Worth adds another dimension to the amazing arts resources with which we share this location; during our festival weekend, the assets of Fort Worth’s renowned museums will be augmented with art that is contemporary and accessible. We think Art Worth’s greatest value is the chance to meet the exhibiting artists; plus, see how some of their work is made through our demonstrations.” said Greg Belz, Executive Director for ArtWorks Foundation.  

Art Worth chose the lawn at Will Rogers Memorial Center for its verdant outdoor setting and proximity to renowned museums, restaurants, theaters, and other arts institutions sited in Fort Worth’s Cultural District. 

Art Worth’s goal is a heightened public appreciation for, and understanding of, the role that visual arts play in our daily lives. The festival presents opportunities for individuals to enjoy learning through demonstrations of fine craft skills and artist conversations, as well as to start or add to their own collections. There will also be live classical music and a range of food, wine and other libations offered. 

“Fort Worth is a proven Mecca for art festivals,” said Belz.  “Main Street is one of the nation’s best; our smaller festival is not intended to be as massive, but we do strive for the same level of quality presented in the spring. Our fall show provides a bookend to the Texas festival season, and a second chance for artists and buyers to meet each other.”  Art Worth’s location also provides ease of access to the entire North Texas community; there is ample parking within the blocks surrounding the site.

There is more about the festival on Art Worth’s website, or on  Art Worth’s  Instagram and Facebook pages.

ArtWorks Foundation exists to help artists grow in their business and their work through programs, exhibitions, and education initiatives in several southern states.

Jammie Holmes: Make the Revolution Irresistible at The Modern

Jammie Holmes: Make the Revolution Irresistible at The Modern

The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth Presents

Jammie Holmes: Make the Revolution Irresistible

On View August 11–November 26, 2023 – FREE Opening Weekend August 11-13!


The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth presents the exhibition Jammie Holmes: Make the Revolution Irresistible, on view August 11 to November 26, 2023. This is the first solo museum exhibition of the artist and is accompanied by a publication with contributions by exhibition curator María Elena Ortiz, Dr. Lauren Cross, Emory Douglas, and the artist.

Holmes creates captivating paintings that show the visual and conceptual significance of the Black figure. Challenging stereotypes, Holmes explores notions of masculinity, mourning, childhood, and race. His works are filled with emotion and painterly gestures; his figures are often depicted in vulnerable situations or simply engaging in moments of contemplation. Rooted in the lived experiences of Black communities in the United States, Holmes is part of a continuum of painters that explore the human figure in current social and political conditions.

Highlighting Southern histories and contemporary realities, the exhibition includes approximately 15 paintings ranging from early to recent works, showcasing the breadth of Holmes’s signature approach toward painting. An early work that references his hometown of Thibodaux, Louisiana, BOX FAN HEROES, 2019, is a vignette of Holmes’s Southern upbringing that garnered national attention. The exhibition features striking paintings and deeply personal works; Blame the Man, 2021, captures a spiritual moment that alludes to how groups form bonds for resistance, while one of Holmes’s most recent works, Lefty, 2023, is a composition honoring veterans and the 1960s civil rights movement. Collectively, these works represent Holmes’s community—the lens through which the artist explores this nation’s history and invokes connections to essential themes of human existence.

Inspired by the culture of his hometown, Jammie Holmes’s figurative and expressive paintings elevate common events in everyday life such as death, grief, faith, and family, into scenes of conviction and compassion. He garnered national attention in 2020 for a public artwork in which he hired planes in Dallas, Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami, and New York to display banners with the last words of George Floyd, killed by police days before in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

His work has been exhibited at institutions including Columbus Museum of Art, Ohio; Dallas Museum of Art, Texas; Los Angeles County Museum of Art, California; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas; Nassima Landau Foundation, Tel Aviv, Israel; and National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC. His work is included in the collections of Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, East Lansing, Michigan; Brooklyn Museum, New York; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, California; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, Durham, North Carolina; Nassima Landau Foundation, Tel Aviv; Pérez Museum of Art Miami, Florida; and Xiao Museum of Contemporary Art, Rizhao, China.

The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is a leader in collecting, showing, and interpreting art from the 1940s to the present. Situated in the heart of the Cultural District, the creative center of the city, the Modern has been housed since 2002 in an elegant concrete, glass, and steel building designed by the renowned Japanese architect Tadao Ando. In addition to 53,000 square feet of soaring, light-filled gallery space and landscaped grounds with outdoor sculptures, the museum features a reflecting pond, theater, education center, gift shop, and café, creating a thriving hub for our community and beyond.

Founded in 1892, the Modern is the oldest museum in Texas; however, our mission has changed over the years. Today, we strive to connect audiences of all ages and backgrounds with the most compelling art and ideas of our time. Showcasing the work of historically significant, mid-career, and emerging artists, the Modern is known for its evolving collection, which is international in scope. The Museum’s holdings include influential artists from Pablo Picasso, Philip Guston, Anselm Kiefer, Martin Puryear, and Agnes Martin to Mark Bradford, Teresita Fernández, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, and Kehinde Wiley. We have a long history of close relationships with the living artists we show and collect, many of whom visit the museum regularly to give talks and lead workshops.

The Modern is a center of lifelong learning and exchange. Our programs include tours, lectures by leading figures in the art world, youth and adult classes, art camps, workshops, and a range of small-group studio and gallery programs led by the Museum’s educators, docents, and community artists. We also present critically acclaimed first-run films and partner with other local arts organizations to offer music, dance, and theater.

Camp at the Y is a time for kids to explore, discover and create in a place that encourages confidence and community. Whether you are interested in day camp, overnight camp, or one of our specialty camps, YMCA Camp Carter offers opportunities for kids to experience new hobbies, interests and adventures while learning what it means to be a good friend and leader.         

Day Camp now is offering three different options in our program, all Day camp programs will have an opportunity to canoe, go through a challenge course element and archery while also experiencing camp activities throughout the week. Campers will also have an opportunity to swim in the lake, the pool or do water activities/play in the afternoons as we start getting into the heat of the summer on a rotating basis, each week is subject to availability. Registration is open earlier than before, which gives you more time to sign up for those weeks before the spots fill up for the summer.

Traditional: Campers will travel in groups of 1:10 with two groups combined 2:20 to allow for more supervision and give campers an extra set of eyes while in their groups.

All camper activities are subject to availability and rotating basis throughout the summer! 

Specialty: Campers will focus in on three of the five days specifically on the skill area chosen which allows for a total of 9 class time frames throughout the week while also completing traditional camp activities and following the weekly theme of traditional camp. 

Fully Themed: Campers will dawn costumes, make believe and step into fully immersive camps while playing games, art and getting to experience camp activities but in more of an immersive atmosphere through costumes, games and magic. We encourage imagination and look forward to fostering growth and imagination through these camps!
