Linda Dee Guy, OMNIBUS
January 13 – February 13, 2014
The work of Linda Dee Guy embraces history, technology, and perception as they relate to process. For her current exhibition at Moudy Gallery, the artist’s eighth at Texas Christian University, she has mounted an intelligent, thought-provoking, and playful exploration into the philosophy and phenomenon of art that challenges viewers to reconcile contrasting elements into a meaningful whole.
Guy currently lives and works in St. Petersburg, Florida. She received her M.F.A. in printmaking from The Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, in 1976, and her B.A. from the University of South Florida, Tampa, in 1974. From 1976 – 2012 Guy held a Professor of Art position at Texas Christian University, where she taught lithography, screen printing, digital media, and mixed media to an emerging generation of North Texas artists.
A brochure publication accompanies the exhibition with an essay by Megan Gratch, Curatorial Assistant at the Dallas Museum of Art.
FORT WORTH CONTEMPORARY ARTS
Works pictured by Ryan Goolsby, Lucia Simek, Jennifer Guest, and Courtney Hamilton
TCU MFA 2014
January 18 – March 7, 2014
Opening reception Saturday, August 24, 6 - 8 pm
Fort Worth Contemporary Arts is pleased to present New Order, an exhibition of graduate painting, drawing, and sculpture from new and returning MFA candidates. Works by Tara Cook, Ryan Goolsby, Jennifer Guest, and Lucia Simek featured in the exhibition provide a glimpse of their thesis work as we look ahead to their upcoming solo exhibitions (which begin March 24), and work presented by four new first-year candidates Courtney Hamilton, Alyssa Hawkins, Fernando Johnson and Maxwell Morris bring a new voice to the conversation.
Certain currents of thought — ideas of construction and formation, artifice and posing, and nascent inklings of identity — trend throughout the work, describing, perhaps, connections that develop out of the artists’ natural proximity and understanding of one another in an MFA program, or perhaps they signal a wider set of concerns as expressed in art dialogues at this moment.
Fort Worth Contemporary Arts is located at 2900 W. Berry Street at the corner of W. Berry and Greene.
FWCA Hours: Wednesday – Saturday, 12 – 5 pm
Moudy Hours: Monday – Friday, 11 am – 4 pm. Saturday, 1 – 4 pm.
