Art Notes

Posted September 10, 2008 by ANTHONY MARIANI in Arts

Carved from a piece of red sandstone that was part of Fort Worth’s first public library, sculptor Evaline Sellors’ “Head of Eve” is the centerpiece of Cultural Cornerstones: The Sculpture of Gene Owens and Evaline Sellors at the Fort Worth Library through October 18. “It’s a key sculpture,” said the library’s Janet Tyson, a local artist and art historian who curated the exhibit. “Owens and Sellors are the best and most important sculptors that Fort Worth has ever produced.” The exhibit came about via research Tyson was doing on the artist. The piece had been lying in storage at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. Sellors died in 1995. Owens is 77. A public reception for the artists is on Fri., Sept. 26. Visit www.fortworthgov.org/Library. … Also on October 18, New Music guru Herb Levy’s Other Arts organization begins its second season by presenting Special Forces, a live performance of an animated film, by Living Cinema: Quebecois filmmaker Pierre Hébert and San Francisco composer/performer Bob Ostertag. Hébert creates a film on the spot that corresponds to and plays off Ostertag’s improv’d score. Tickets are $25, $20 for students and seniors, and are available at the door.
