'Object Permanence' Opening Reception
Aug
2
6:00 PM18:00

'Object Permanence' Opening Reception

Art Tooth is proud to present Object Permanence; a group exhibition featuring work by Sierra Forester, Shelby Orr, Audrey Travis, and Amy Young. The show consists of photography, sculpture, mixed media, and paintings.The exhibition is curated by Art Tooth staff (Aimee Cardoso, Shasta Haubrich, and Ariel Davis), as part of the Fort Worth Community Art Center Art Collective Residency Program. Object Permanence explores the understanding that objects continue to exist even when they cannot be perceived. Our natural instinct as a viewer of art is to try to figure out “what it is” or sometimes try to “get” what the piece is about. The variety of works, from a light pole covered in nails to partially obscured photo assemblages reference objects that are no longer visible but the viewer still understands.

Object Permanence will be on display in Gallery 9 at the Fort Worth Community Art Center from August 2-22, 2019, with an opening reception on Friday August 2, 2019 6-9pm.


About Sierra Forester:

“I work as an observer, a questioner, as an individual attempting to understand. Through autonomic gestures it is my aim to grasp and visualize our existence as well as the constructs that we build around us; however lofty that may be. Specifically, the social frameworks we use to navigate our relationship with the world as well as our perception of time are frequent studies in my practice. Minimal in form, the work

remains open-ended and porous with hopes of allowing a multitude of perceptions - amongst my own - to be drawn from the work.”



About Shelby Orr:

Shelby Orr is an artist and educator based in Fort Worth, Texas. Her work concentrates on the perception of self using photography, drawing, and sound. She has shown at the Masur Museum of Art, Houston Center for Photography, Spiva Center for the Arts, and, as a finalist for the Julia Margaret Cameron Award, was included in the 2016 Berlin Foto Biennale. In 2016, she completed a residency at CentralTrak: The UT Dallas Artist Residency. Along with her visual works, Orr writes and performs sound compositions and is one half of the creative collaboration KITBASHES.


About Audrey Travis:

Audrey Travis holds an MFA in sculpture from Texas Christian University (Fort Worth, TX) and a BFA in painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design (Savannah, GA). She was most recently awarded the Arch and Anne Giles Kimbrough Fund grant from the Dallas Museum of Art, following her residency at Kunstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin, Germany. Her current work explores monumentality through material, scale, and space. Travis lives and works in Dallas/Fort Worth where she is an Adjunct Professor of Art at Texas Christian University.

“I am drawn to the monolithic. I look to monuments of pure form and material, masses of stone, and moments of architecture. These hewn shapes evoke a sense of permanence and embody the elemental. I am interested in incorporating this language into my work, using simple acts and interventions to emulate the purity and gravity of these structures. These sculptures are meant to challenge the grandiose and monumental through material and scale.” -Audrey Travis


About Amy Young:

Amy Young is a self-taught, abstract expressionist artist known for her exploration of time, impermanence, and natural weathering. Graffiti and character-rich walls are her greatest sources of inspiration. She lives and works in fort worth, Texas.

The Girl Can't Help It

The Girl Can't Help It

Art Tooth proudly presents the opening of “The Girl Can’t Help It,” an exhibition featuring works from Christine Adame, Fari Rahimi, and Tiffany Wolf Smith.

In this all-female exhibition, artists explore themes related to both the personal and cultural shaping of feminine identity and experience. Regardless of very real barriers and external forces at play, every woman plays an active role in shaping their identity and environment, whether domestic, public or private. By centering this undeniable power to adapt and shape one’s reality, each of these artists inevitably complicates society’s limited definitions of the feminine. Through personal investigations of narrative, identity, shared space, and shared realities, they each reveal just some of the complexities of what it means to be female.

Presented in partnership with the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, “The Girl Can’t Help It,” is Art Tooth’s first exhibition of 2019, as part of their Art Collective Residency at FWCAC.

The opening reception for “The Girl Can’t Help It” will be held March 1st, 6-9 PM. The exhibition will be on view through March 30th, Spring Gallery Night 2019.

Art + Collective : Andria Matlock

Art Tooth and The Collective Brewing Project are proud to announce the artwork of Andria Matlock on display Thursday, December 13 - January 2 as part of the feature series Art + Collective. 

Artist Andria Matlock explores the intersecting worlds of fashion, design, photography, history, and fine art. Regarding herself “a graphic designer in photographer's clothing,” Matlock also moonlights as a painter, knitter, dancer, and art provocateur. Her dynamic and wide ranging practice incorporates a variety of media, including watercolor, digital and mixed media collage, and photography. 

Her first solo exhibition with Art Tooth will feature examples from Matlock’s most recent series of digital and mixed media collages, which draw inspiration from the twelve astrological signs of the zodiac. In these works, Matlock expertly layers elements of her own photographs with historical images of burlesque dancers and pinup models and vintage illustrations of flora and fauna. These startling combinations paired with Matlock’s bold use of color, graphic elements, and pattern provoke a variety of rich interpretations.

Andria Matlock studied art and design at Texas Woman’s University and the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in graphic design. Her independent art consortium, Wild.Pop, produces editioned prints of her original collages, paintings, and photographs. Matlock currently resides in Fort Worth, Texas, where she works for the Kimbell Art Museum and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.

Art + Collective: Katie McKay Jones

The Collective Brewing Project and Art Tooth are proud to announce the showcase of Katie McKay Jones artwork on display Thursday, November 1 - November 29 as part of the feature series Art + Collective. 

”My current work is a response to a lie I told my five year old. I told her that monsters aren’t real. After convincing her, I started to paint. The more I worked, the more my paintings appeared wild and belligerent. My brushstrokes became more aggressive; I created lines that were uncontrolled and messy. I began to see monsters everywhere.

 I have embraced these “monsters” and become more deliberate in creating them. For me, they represent life. They represent the constant noise of hatred and oppression, the inner struggle between right and wrong, the unwillingness to see and truly hear other people, and all the lies we choose to believe.  They represent the brokenness in this world.

 And yet in the loudness and chaos, there is beauty.  There are bright, bold color that compliment one another.  There are lines that are naïve and, even playful.  There are subtle textures and quietness in the details.

 I want the viewer to get close to my work, to feel the tension between loud and quiet, chaos and peace, weakness and strength. I want the viewer to find beauty in the brokenness and feel empowered by it.”

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 !
