Fall 2022 art happenings

I’m in a few more shows this fall – very exciting! Fort Worth Biennial 2022 at Arts Fort Worth The outbreak of Covid put the kibosh on the previous Biennial. Of the three pieces I entered for this year’s Fort Worth Biennial, I was especially happy the juror,  Lilia Kudili, chose “Programming Man.” It’s a big painting and has almost everyone of my favorite things…

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.

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

One of the pieces is one of my favorite cat paintings ever. The show runs from July 5 – July 24, 2019, with an opening…

But you’d best hurry – this is the last week it’ll be up; show closes after July 28! As always it’s a fascinating show, full of good work. I’ve got pretty good placement this year – my…

New show: Aoelian – of the wind

I’m in a show that opens Friday November 25, the day after Thanksgiving, from 7 – 10 PM at Arts 5th Ave. Cast aside the usual Black Friday Shopping Madness (except for art shopping) and join us! Arts 5th Ave is a cozy fun environment nestled snugly in the heart of Historic Fairmount in Mid-South Fort Worth. This will be fairly different than the show that just…

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…

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.
