Head of the Class

“Head of the Class” showcases the work of artists and K-12th grade art instructors including C.J. Davis, Ollie Gee, Devyn Gaudet, Terry Horn, and Leigh Ann Williams

Art Tooth and Art7 are excited to present “Head of the Class,” a showcase of work from Fort Worth art instructors beginning with a fundraising reception on July 14th from 7-9pm. This exhibition will highlight the work of artists who also teach K-12th grade art. Personal artistic practice often becomes secondary to the demanding and stressful work of this career. In addition to struggling with work/life balance, Dallas-Fort Worth's teachers receive some of the lowest pay in the country. Currently the average salary of a Texas art teacher is $52,987 compared to the US average of $62,830, but salaries can begin as low as $27,320 with a sluggish increase to $31,560 after five years. In Fort Worth the average pay is a $48,890 compared to the higher-paying Houston area.  These numbers don’t include the average costs of living, including student loan debt, rising housing costs in the area, and the hundreds of dollars these artists spend to supplement school supplies in their classrooms. Therefore, to build a stronger Fort Worth community, we should ensure teachers of any subject are given extra support.

“Head of the Class” will highlight the artwork of some of Fort Worth’s hardest working artists in the show at the west 7th satellite gallery of Fort Worth Community Arts Center’s (FWCAC), Art 7. Proceeds from this exhibition will go directly to fund teachers and their classrooms. Art Tooth will collect donations at the opening reception, and all sales directly benefit participating artists. FWCAC’s will also use a portion of their proceeds to purchase school supplies to be donated to FWISD.

The show includes a diverse range of art styles including the playful watercolors of Ollie Gee and Rebekah McKnight, ornate mixed media works of Terry Horn, and rural landscape photos by Devyn Gaudet. Participating artists include: C.J. Davis, Kay Ford, Devyn Gaudet,  Ollie Gee, Terry Horn, Sean Ibanez, Rebecca James, Michelle Justice, Rebekah McKnight, and Leigh Ann Williams. 

The sure to be fun-filled and jam-packed opening reception is free to the public with a suggested donation of $5-$10. The event will include, beer, wine and a DJ.

Donations can be sent in here !

'Take Us To Your Leader' Opening Reception

Art Tooth Presents "Take Us To Your Leader" by Billi London-Gray. 
Event Details:
Open February 26 - March 28
Opening Reception March 2, 6-9 pm
Special Event Inclusion: Feb 24th, 2018 Celebration of the Arts March 24th Spring Gallery Night.

Art Tooth is excited to present "Take Us To Your Leader" by Billi London-Gray. This show is the chosen piece of our Art Tooth at FWCAC Art in the Dark Call for Submissions.

The interactive exhibit will make it's debut the night of Fort Worth Community Arts Center's 2018 Celebration of the Arts on February 24th. (tickets available at https://goo.gl/fcVHYu ). We will also host an opening reception on March 2nd from 6-9 and the show will be on view for Gallery Night. (Tickets for our pArty Bus (https://goo.gl/tdf5EW) include this stop).

Billi London-Gray's work deals with the relationship between language, belief, and power. The use of power, the means of its acquisition, and the manipulation of belief through language have led to historic traumas and contemporary crises that demand scrutiny. She scrutinizes the way language and beliefs are used to subjugate people. She is concerned by the rhetorical shift in our political arena, toward discounting civil discourse and privileging deaf arrogance. Her goal is to prompt her audience to rethink their assumptions and make their own critical inspections through encounters with her videos, sculptures, books, zines, sound compositions, photos, and drawings. 

Billi London-Gray has exhibited throughout the United States and internationally. She is a recipient of the San Marcos Arts Advocacy Award, the McDowell Center Innovative Project Award for Visual Artists, and the Ideas in Art Award from the James S. Barnett Jr. Foundation. She co-directs the itinerant exhibition space Zosima Gallery. She holds a B.A. in theology from Criswell College and an M.A. in liberal arts from St. John’s College. She will complete her M.F.A. in intermedia studio at The University of Texas at Arlington in 2018.
