Work on exhibit this Fall (September edition)

A couple more chances to see some recent work coming up soon! I’ll have two larger pieces on display Gallery Night (September 7) in the TAC Impromptu Invitational Fall 2019 show at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, 1300 Gendy Street, Fort Worth 76107. Opening reception is 6 – 9 PM. Gallery Night runs from 12 noon until 9 PM at most participating galleries/exhibition spaces…

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…

Where is all the Art??

Just saw that Flickr, where most images on this site are hosted, is down for maintenance. Which means no images in my various galleries. Ouch! Until this maintenance is complete, you can visit my other site: https://www.rontaylorcrouch.com. It should be just fine.

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…

Save the date(s) – Spring 2019 show

Sadly – the show is no longer happening this spring. See the next post. I’m deliriously happy to be able to announce I’ll be in a 2 person show this spring with my friend, the fabulous artist Ann Ekstrom, who I’ve known since before I knew anything else. We’ll be hanging art at Gallery 414, where I’ve shown several times in the past. The 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…

Fifth Annual Artspace 111 Regional Juried Exhibition – see it (and me) now!

I spaced out posting this earlier, but the Fifth Annual Artspace 111 Regional Juried Exhibition (boy that’s a mouthful) is up, and I’m in it again this year. 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…

RonTaylorCrouch.com – now live!

I just finished getting all the tweaks and technical issues sorted out for https://www.rontaylorcrouch.com and it is now live! You’ll see a lot of the same content/images of art, but it’s primarily devoted to showing the art – just the art. Not near as much long boring talk (ahem) as is on www.ralphart.com. Please take a look! If you see any weirdness, let me know!…

Coming soon! New website: RonTaylorCrouch.com

On advice of my web-savvy oldest son, I’ve started developing a new website that focuses on just my art: www.rontaylorcrouch.com. The Ralph Art Website Project website will remain as the place where I wander and ramble and go off on long boring tangents; the new site will be focused on showcasing the art without a lot of jaw-boning. All the jaw-boning will remain here on…

Caturday!

I’ve recently started posting drawings of my cats (with the occasional cat painting) with the hashtag #Caturday on Saturday mornings, on Instagram and Facebook. Mostly they are just quick little sketches on 5 x 8 sketchbooks. They aren’t much but they are fun to do. Enjoy! (and follow me on Instagram!)

Cat Drawings

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on the the site.  The last 15 months have been pretty eventful. We had to put my poor, sick Hobbes (the ginger thug) down back in October of 2016. After a decent interval, two new cats joined the household: Baxter and O’Malley.  In December of 2016, Dorothy and I and the boys took a trip to NYC…
