THE RODEO SHOW: Linda Blackburn, Rima Canaan Lee, Donna Howell-Sickles, Jo LeMay Rutledge
Featuring the artwork of Linda Blackburn, Rima Canaan Lee, Donna Howell-Sickles, Jo LeMay Rutledge. The exhibition will be on display January 15 - March 20, 2021, with an opening reception on January 30th, 2021 from 12 - 7pm.
THE RODEO SHOW is a group exhibition showcasing women artists who create work informed by Western culture, which is distilled in popular stock show and rodeo events. Since 1896, the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo has been known as the most authentic western lifestyle experience. This celebrated event is a unique display of Texas culture that highlights the history of Fort Worth as the vital center of livestock commerce for the entire nation. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the rodeo will not be taking place in 2021. The only other time this event was canceled was in 1943, near the height of World War II. In order to share the spirit of the rodeo in a year when the arenas will be quiet, Artspace111 has been inspired to present artworks created to spotlight Western culture and give patrons the opportunity to experience rodeo nostalgia through visual art.
*Artspace111 is currently open Wednesday - Friday 11-5 and by appointment. To make an appointment to view the exhibition or artwork by our represented artists, please email Art@Artspace111.com or call (817) 692-3228.
