2.62 Persons: A House; A Home; A Statistic; A Family

I’ve been fortunate enough to get into several shows this spring, including two in Dallas as part of the ART214 exhibits, and two in the Rio Brazos show in Granbury, sponsored by Tarleton State University. Closer to home, Texas Artists Coalition’s upcoming exhibit, 2.62 Persons: A House; A Home; A Statistic; A Family will include three of my paintings. To say I was shocked all…

ART214 in Dallas

I was surprised and pleased to be notified I got *two* pieces accepted in this year’s ART214 Juried Exhibition, sponsored by the Dallas Office of Arts And Culture. ART214 is part of Dallas Arts Month, a city-wide celebration of Dallas arts. “Puzzle,” which has been exhibited in Fort Worth a couple of times, will be on exhibit at the Bath House Cultural Center, at 521…

Looking back at 2019

2019 was pretty much a breakout year for me in several ways. For starters, a new website (https://www.rontaylorcrouch.com), urged on me by my millenial sons, who told me pointblank, “Nobody knows or cares who ‘Ralph Art’ is – use your real name.” They also said I talked too much on the Ralphart.com website. “Just show your art and don’t ramble on.” So if you want…

Upcoming show – Solo Show[Down] 2019 at FWCAC

I’m excited to announce I’m in several shows this summer at the Fort Worth Community Art Center. I’ll be showing 2 works on paper during Solo Show[Down] 2019, juried by Christina Rees, Editor-in-Chief of Glasstire, the online Texas art magazine. One of the pieces is one of my favorite cat paintings ever. The show runs from July 5 – July 24, 2019, with an opening…

Fall ArtsGoogle 2018 – I’ll be there!

The weather has gotten cold and wet, which means it’s time for Fall ArtsGoogle in Fort Worth’s Near SouthSide. I’ll have a handful of pieces, old and new, at Broadway Baptist Church, at 305 W Broadway Ave, just south of downtown Fort Worth, Texas.  Come in and say hi – I’ll be set up in the Narthex (the lobby in front of the sanctuary). While…

B/W&C opening

B/W&C show – update with images

The B/W&C show has come to a close and we’ve pulled the pieces from Gallery 414. It was a great success. We had close to 200 people (at best count) to the opening on October 22, and a respectable stream of visitors on the following weekends. Many thanks to Leo Wesson and Kipp Baker for agreeing to participate with me in this endeavor, and especially…

Hanging the show at Gallery 414

B/W&C Opening tonight (October 22)

The show is hung, the food (and beer) is bought! Tonight is the opening for our show at Gallery 414. You’ll see me and photographer/friends Kipp Baker and Leo Wesson. We’ll be standing around, awkwardly waiting for people to ask us about the work and the like. Mostly we are looking forward to getting a chance to visit with friends and family. Opening is from…

Preliminary announcement: show this fall

Just a quick “reserve this date” thing. I’m on the calendar, awaiting final dates for a show this fall at Gallery 414, here in Fort Worth.  I’ll be showing there with a couple of old long-time photographer friends, Kipp Baker and Leo Wesson. Still in the planning stages, but should be mostly new paintings, with a few older, larger pieces. Plus photos by Leo and…
