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…

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…

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…

New – now sign up for email updates!

I launched the revamped Ralph Art Website over the weekend, and one of the features I’m most interested in seeing whether people use is the email update service. Here’s how it works – signing up puts you on a list I’ll use to send out email updates about upcoming exhibitions, new stuff on the website, and general announcements. “Oh fine,” you’re thinking, “That’s all I…

Updates to the website

Talking about technical updates to a website – boy, that’s some exciting stuff.  Okay, so here are the major improvements. New theme (re-skin) is cleaner, easier to navigate. At least I hope so Added some functionality (content delivery network) that should make pages load faster, which, on image heavy pages, is a big deal. Started hosting the gallery images on a photo sharing service, should…

Update – show this fall at Gallery 414

Okay – mark your calendars: I now have dates for the fall show I’m doing with Leo Wesson and Kipp Baker at Gallery 414. Opening will be Saturday, October 22 from 6 to 9 PM; show will be up from October 22 through November 20, and the gallery will be open during that period on Saturdays and Sundays. Gallery 414 is located at 414 Templeton, in…
