I always remember being able to draw, even before I could write, and I knew I was going to be an artist. I’ve had a few detours as life has progressed, including a stent as an IT professional, managing web servers, but continue to make art as much as possible. I hope you enjoy some of the images I’ve posted. 

Thanks for stopping by!

  • Gallery 414 to close

    It is with great sadness that I share that I learned yesterday that Gallery 414, which has been serving the Fort Worth art community for almost 24 years, is closing.

    As stated on the 414 website, “In 1995, founders John Hartley, Adele Krause and Razz Fiesler opened Gallery 414 as a space to promote and exhibit contemporary art in a variety of media and subject matter by new and established artists.” Sadly, Raza Fiesler passed away last year.

    I missed a call yesterday from Adele Krause; her voice mail said “I need to talk to you about something important.” Knowing that the gallery space belonged to the estate of Razz Fiesler, who’d passed away last year, I knew the future of the gallery was somewhat up in the air. I called Adele back and she confirmed what I suspected – the estate had decided they could no longer support the gallery.

    Their next show, scheduled to run from February 9 to March 3, 2019, will be their last. Unfortunately, the show that was to have followed, which would have me and Ann Ekstrom, has been cancelled.

    If you’ve been there recently, you’ve noticed the once slightly ragged neighborhood now sports high-end condos on all sides of the lot Gallery 414 sits on. Hell, I can’t fault the folks who manage the estate – that property is now worth a lot
