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!
- 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 to read my bloviations, go to Ralphart.com, if you just want to see the art, go to RonTaylorCrouch.com.
I also joined the Texas Artists Coalition – a great organization that is a program of the Arts Council of Fort Worth. I ended up being included in 6 separate exhibitions at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center over the course of the year:
- TAC Impromptu Invitational Spring Gallery Night 2019 (March 1 – 30)
- Solo Show[Down] 2019 ( July 5 – 24)
- 14th Annual TAC Juried Exhibit (August 2 – 21)
- Animalia, curated by Barbara Koerble (August 2 – 21)
- TAC Impromptu Invitational Fall Gallery Night 2019 (September 7 – 27)
- TAC Small Works Show 2019 (November 1 – December 1)
Getting involved gave me an opportunity to make the acquaintance of Jonathan Mark Levy, who was the Programs and Gallery Manager at the time.
Elsewhere, I’ve gotten involved in Art Room, a fairly new arts organization based on Fort Worth’s bustling South
