DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION - November 15, 2018
EXHIBITION DATES: January 4 – February 20, 2018 RECEPTION: Friday, January 4, 2018
CALL TO ARTISTS: The Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo is the oldest continuously running livestock show and rodeo. It has been held annually in Fort Worth, Texas since 1896, traditionally in mid-January through early February. In March 1918, the Fort Worth Stock Show first went indoors at Cowtown Coliseum in the Fort Worth Stockyards. A century later, the Stock Show Rodeo is held at the Will Rogers Memorial Coliseum and has been there since 1944. The Fort Worth Community Arts Center, neighbor to the Will Rogers Memorial Coliseum, will dedicate January and February, 2019 to the spirit of the west. 9000 sq ft of gallery space will be dedicated to works that embrace the spirit and theme of western based artwork. All mediums accepted including oils, acrylics, pastels, watercolors, prints, drawings, mixed media, sculpture, video, installation, photography, and digital art with no size restrictions. The show will occur in Fort Worth Community Arts Center’s premier, 3000 square foot, Front Gallery. All artwork must be original and must not infringe upon any copyright or the rights of any person. We invite artists from all 50 states to submit works of a western theme. The show will run from Friday, 01/4/19 to 02/20/19. The Stock Show Rodeo anticipates more than 1 million people during the run of the event. The show is jurored by the FWCAC Staff.
ABOUT FWCAC: Located at 1300 Gendy Street, the FWCAC is part of the most architecturally significant museum districts in the United States. The striking modern Herbert Bayer building (with a later O’Neil Ford addition) opened to the public in 1954 as home to one of the most prestigious and oldest collecting organizations in the state of Texas, the Modern Museum of Fort Worth. When, in 2002, the Modern moved down the street, the Fort Worth Community Arts Center opened. The building has exhibited world class art and supported the performing arts for more than half a century. The Arts Council manages the FWCAC, provides leadership and funding to local arts organizations through our competitive Grants Program and administers the Fort Worth Public Art program.
