Ho ho ho!
It’s July in Texas and hotter than two fireflies mating in a wool sock, but art lovers around here look forward to the annual Collectors of Fort Worth Art show and sale like children awaiting Christmas morn.
This weekend’s event marks the 10th anniversary of the show and sale, and it looks to be the best yet. Oil and watercolor paintings, prints, drawings, and other works by early Fort Worth and Texas artists will cover the walls at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center.
Show times are 5 to 9 p.m. today and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. tomorrow. Admission is free. Address: 1300 Gendy St. near the Amon Carter Museum and Will Rogers Coliseum.
Various mediums are available to see and enjoy, and if anything catches your eye you can make an offer.
Prices are usually reasonable at this show. And it’s not an artsy fartsy affair so don’t be afraid to show up in shorts and sandals.
On display will be works by early Fort Worth artists such as Bill Bomar, Cynthia Brants, David Brownlow, Scott Gentling, George Grammer, Dwight Holmes, Josephine Mahaffey, Blanche McVeigh, Juanita Montgomery, Hal Normand, Thelma Park, Hedwyn Sanders, Bror Utter, and many others.
