Preservation is the Art of the City
September 8 - September 23, 2017
Fall Gallery Night :September 9, 2017; 6 - 9pm
Each September Historic Fort Worth, Inc. produces a month-long, multi-faceted event called Preservation is the Art of the City® at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, 1300 Gendy Street. In its 15th year, the primary component is an art show and sale that runs the entire month. Recognizing that great cities need studio artists who can earn a living, the studio artists in this show receive 65% of the sales price of their sold artworks and have the option of entering works into a special section called Stories of the City. During the month thousands of people visit the show. Special events during the month include the Party with the Artists, Gallery Night and the Cantey Lecture & Preservation Awards.
This year’s Honorary Chairman is Michael J. Bennett, AIA and the Featured Artist is Val Hunnicutt. The Cantey Lecturer is Beth Wiedower.
