Arts Fort Worth and Support Fort Worth Art proudly present an invitation to artists, art enthusiasts, and creatives of all ages and skill levels to participate in a vibrant celebration of creativity and community.
We believe strongly that art is for everyone. The simple act of creating art has a profound impact on mental and physical health and wellbeing, and sharing that art plays a vital role in fostering social connections and creating community. The arts empower people to tell their own stories, contribute to the cultural landscape and enrich our city with a vibrancy like nothing else. Community art spaces like the Fort Worth Community Art Center are an essential component in making art accessible for all.
With this in mind, we invite you to participate in the upcoming exhibition Together We Make Art Happen to celebrate our North Texas community’s diversity through the arts and showcase the talents of regional artists and makers. All artwork delivered to the Fort Worth Community Arts Center between February 22 – 24 will be included in the exhibition and installed on a first-come, first-served basis salon-style in the Arts Center’s Marlene and Spencer Hays Foundation Gallery. Artwork will be on view from March 1 – March 23, and part of Fort Worth Art Dealer Association’s Spring Gallery Night, one of Fort Worth’s biggest art events.
