William Campbell Contemporary Art Announces New Ownership

William Campbell Contemporary Art Announces New Ownership

The Storied Fort Worth Gallery Begins a New Chapter

FORT WORTH, TEXAS – Fort Worth’s renowned and enduring art gallery, William Campbell Contemporary Art, transitioned to new ownership in December of 2020. Pam and Bill Campbell, who have owned and operated the gallery and frame shop on Byers Avenue for forty-six years, transferred their legacy as purveyors and stewards of contemporary art to new hands.
 
Fort Worth Contemporary Art Partners has purchased William Campbell Contemporary Art and Gallery One Frames. FWCAP founders are Jadz Pate, Clayton Snodgrass, Tim Locke, J.W. Wilson, and Peeler Howell. Howell has worked as the Campbells’ gallery assistant since August 2017, and will continue to manage day-to-day operations.
 
“Fort Worth Contemporary Art Partners has no desire to do anything fundamentally different from what Bill and Pam have created over the last forty-six years,” said Howell. “We want to continue to cultivate the relationships they have created with the artists, clients, and customers, and anybody that has an interest in contemporary art, or art in general. Bill and Pam have been ideal mentors, and will continue to be so.”
 
As much fixtures in the Metroplex art scene as their brick-and-mortar space, Pam and Bill Campbell have made an indelible imprint on the Fort Worth art community, championing contemporary artists and making their work accessible to a broad audience base.
 
“Though we are going to really miss seeing our clients on a regular basis-many who have become such great friends over the years-and working with our artists who are like family to us, we couldn’t have wished for a better scenario,” said the Campbells. “We are excited to see William Campbell Contemporary Art continue beyond our retirement and look forward to the gallery’s future in Peeler and his partners’ extraordinary and talented hands.”
 
As the gallery changes hands, patrons will notice very little difference aside from a fresh set of legs. The Campbell name will remain as homage to its founders, as will the location and stable of artists. “We will carry the Campbell torch forward into the future while always honoring its past,” Wilson said.
 
The new owners believe in the mission set forth by the Campbells more than four decades ago, and remain dedicated to upholding the values that have made William Campbell Contemporary Art a Fort Worth institution. “We are committed to exhibiting the same quality of art and service that Fort Worth has grown accustomed to,” they said.

Mayfest Festival Canceled For 2021

Mayfest Festival Canceled For 2021

Trinity Collaborative, Inc. announced the Mayfest festival is canceled for 2021, but
plans have begun for the 50th Anniversary Mayfest in 2022

FORT WORTH, Texas – Trinity Collaborative, Inc. announces the
cancelation of the Mayfest 2021 festival in the overall interest of public health and
safety due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. It is our social responsibility to continue
to place the safety and wellbeing of our patrons, volunteers, vendors, partners and
community as our top priority.

This difficult decision was made with great care and deliberation after numerous
meetings with public health officials. At this time, a gathering as large and populous as
Mayfest negates the efforts to minimize the effects of COVID-19. The cancelation will
help advance the health of our community, allowing for future opportunities to safely
congregate and unite once again.

We are enthusiastically planning the 50th Anniversary of Mayfest, which will take place
May 5th – 8th, 2022. Now more than ever, we look forward to connecting people to the
river, our parks and each other in a safe, welcoming environment.

Trinity Collaborative, Inc., formally known as Mayfest, Inc., recently expanded the
organization’s operations to produce other events and introduce new programs in
addition to the annual Mayfest festival. Plans are underway for new, exciting
developments that support the organization’s mission to raise and contribute funds for
the Trinity River, surrounding parks and community programs.

We appreciate your continued support during this time and encourage you to follow
us on social media or visit our website for the most current information.

Billy Bob’s Texas Announces Shows for Anniversary Celebration

Billy Bob’s Texas Announces Shows for Anniversary Celebration

FORT WORTH, Texas –   Billy Bob’s Texas first opened on April 1, 1981- celebrating its grand opening for an entire week. The celebration kicked off with Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers on opening night. Exactly 40 years later, the World’s Largest Honky Tonk will celebrate its 40th anniversary with the Gatlin Brothers on April 1, 2021. 

The celebration doesn’t stop there, following the Gatlin Brothers will be Hank Williams Jr. on April 2 and 3, Midland on April 8, 9, and 10, and Dwight Yoakam on April 16 and 17.

NEW CONCERTS ANNOUNCED!

More new shows have just been announced to Billy Bob’s concert calendar. 

Jamey Johnson & Randy Houser’s Country Cadillac Tour

February 4, 2021

Country singer/songwriters Jamey Johnson and Randy Houser will share the stage on their unforgettable co-headlining Country Cadillac Tour, which will begin on Feb. 4 at Billy Bob’s in Fort Worth, Texas. More shows are being added due to popular demand.

The two longtime friends will perform acoustically and swap stories, jokes, and songs. It will be an unforgettable, irreverent and spontaneous evening because no two shows will be alike. They both delivered headline-worthy solo sets before joining forces onstage at the show’s end in 2009 when they performed together at New York’s Bowery Bar. As CMT wrote, “(Johnson) and Houser traded vocals on what amounted to a honky-tonk/Outlaw country jukebox—with the pair tearing through Merle Haggard’s “Ramblin’ Fever,” the Charlie Daniels Band’s “Long Haired Country Boy,” the Marshall Tucker Band’s “Can’t You See” and more by the likes of George Jones, Johnny Paycheck and other renegade forebears.” Johnson and Houser had discussed touring together for years, but their overwhelming solo touring demands hadn’t allowed an opportunity to plan a significant co-headlining tour. This acoustic tour, which will feature proper social distancing and other COVID-19-recommended measures, has been years in the making.

The Steel Woods

March 18, 2021

With a pair of critically acclaimed Woods Music/Thirty Tigers releases under their belts in Straw in the Wind (2017) and Old News ­(2019), Nashville-based The Steel Woods have lived up to their name as a hybrid musical force both in the studio, but especially live. The band’s two original members are native sons of the south who both hail from small-town backgrounds. The Alabama-born Wes Bayliss played harmonica from the age of eight in his family’s gospel band, eventually teaching himself piano, bass, and drums. Jason “Rowdy” Cope turned his love of Jimmy Page and Jimi Hendrix into a career as a session guitarist/songwriter and producer, moving to Los Angeles, then playing in Jamey Johnson’s band for nine years.  The two met in Nashville playing the same gig one night in some out-of-town dive, and immediately discovered an affinity for each other. Part hard-edged Southern rock, part Americana roots country folk, man-made, yet organic, rock but also bluegrass, R&B, blues, gospel, soul, and heavy metal, The Steel Woods’ completed their first recordings barely months after they first met before being joined by current bassist Johnny Stanton. And while their albums have received kudos, it is live where The Steel Woods truly shine, expanding on the blueprints on record, involving the crowd in a joyous, communal experience.

Samantha Fish

March 26, 2021

Genre-defying guitarist, singer, and songwriter Samantha Fish will take the stage at Billy Bob’s Texas on March 26, 2021. Anyone who has ever heard Fish’s previous albums knows that she has earned a place in the top rank of contemporary blues guitarists and that her voice can wring the soul out of a ballad and belt out a rocker with roof-shaking force.

Midland

April 8-10, 2021

Hailing from Dripping Springs, TX lead vocalist Mark Wystrach fronts Midland’s rich sound that is rounded out with lead guitarist/vocalist Jess Carson and bass player/vocalist Cameron Duddy. Rooted in tradition in both sound and style, the trio initially garnered attention playing clubs in the region. Their critically-acclaimed sophomore albumLET IT ROLL (Big Machine Records) earned the No. 1 position on Billboard’s Top Country Album Sales chart upon release, receiving praise from outlets such as Rolling Stone, Variety, NPR, and Entertainment Weekly among others. Wystrach, Carson, and Duddy all played an integral role in writing the 14-track album with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne which features Country Radio’s Top 40 and climbing single “Cheatin’ Songs.” The album was produced by Dann Huff, McAnally, and Osborne and was a follow-up to the critically acclaimed debut album, ON THE ROCKS (Big Machine Records). Launching in 2017 with rave reviews, ON THE ROCKS was declared “the year’s best Country album” by Washington Post. Their 2x Platinum-certified chart-topping debut “Drinkin’ Problem,” which offers an intentional nod to Country music reminiscent of the 1970s and 80s, earned the band their first GRAMMY® Awards nominations for Best Country Song and Best Country Duo/Group Performance. Midland was also named New Vocal Group of the Year at the 2018 ACM Awards and is nominated for Group of the Year at the 2020 ACM Awards.

When they stepped foot on this foreign land, they carried with them traditions of family, culture, food, movement and song, many of which we all enjoy today,” says FWO General Director Afton Battle. “This celebration of Black History is more than a month. It’s more than the 28/29 days in February, it is an expression. An expression of all things excellent about Black people and our culture.” 

“Fort Worth Opera’s celebration of Black History Month is long overdue and appropriate in this time. We are overjoyed to have a line-up of A+, international Black classical and non-classical artists, living both locally in the DFW metroplex and throughout the county. It is my distinct joy and pleasure to introduce, many for the first time, this roster of Black Excellence to the city of Fort Worth.” 

Fort Worth Opera is also excited to announce the Tarrant County Pearls Chapter of The Society, Incorporated as a 2020/2021 Season Sponsor. This new alliance will feature a year-long partnership with FWO’s Children’s Opera Theatre, and the Chapter will serve as one of the official sponsors for A Night of Black Excellence: Past, Present, and Future and Black History Month. The Tarrant County Pearls Chapter and this remarkable non-profit national organization of women are dedicated to enhancing, exposing, and promoting youth in the arts to better our communities. Focusing on under-served children, they provide support for young literary, visual, and performing artists. Founded 37 years ago in Washington, D.C., The Society, Incorporated now has 27 chapters in 15 states across the United States. The Tarrant County Pearls Chapter became the organization’s newest chartered Chapter on October 11, 2020. 

Chapter President Kristin Vinson Wright says, “The Tarrant County Pearls are beyond excited to partner with the Fort Worth Opera as they continue a rich tradition of delivering the passion, excitement, and art of opera throughout Tarrant County with compelling cultural and educational programmatic activities.”

About Fort Worth Opera: Founded in 1946, Fort Worth Opera is poised to celebrate its 75th anniversary in 2021. For the last fifteen years, FWO has become one of the leading American companies dedicated to nurturing and performing new opera, in addition to producing traditional repertoire with rising American stars. Our acclaimed Frontiersprogram was held online this fall with our first digital Libretto Workshop. The company’s Children’s Opera Theatre typically reaches about 60,000 students across North Texas each season with live, interactive performances. 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, FWO has created an online educational curriculum for local music students to supplement their in-school studies, and COT can also now serve entire families and communities beyond the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. Fort Worth Opera is committed to celebrating all North Texans, and through our ongoing Noches de Ópera program, the company offers exciting community-driven events and powerful operas that represent the diverse cultures of all of the Americas.
