Martin Delabano in An Artful Life



Martin Delabano in An Artful Life

September 11, 2010 – October 23, 2010

Presented by the Exhibition Advisory Panel of the Fort Worth Community Arts Center

Distinguished Texas Artist Martin Delabano grew up surrounded by family, art, artists and hand-made objects, and the influence of each is heavily apparent in his artwork. Working with his artist father at the Dallas Museum of Art, he met Rauschenberg, Nevelson, Moore and others. His home was filled with paintings, prints, drawings, Pre-Columbian, African, and New Guinea sculptures and baskets, as well as well-known early Texas artists such as Jerry Bywaters, Otis and Velma Dozier, Charlie Bowling and Octavio Medellin, who were family friends. Using the tools his wood-working grandfather handed down to him, Delabano fabricates amusing visual commentaries. He also creates delightful drawings and collages that echo the mixed media and multiple layers of his sculptures.

The Exhibition Advisory Panel of the Fort Worth Community Arts Center awards the Distinguished Texas Artist Award in even years to a living Texas artist who has shown excellence in their artwork and their service to the community.
