Every week Annie makes it a point to pick up a free copy of Fort Worth Weekly. It always gives fun suggestions for things to do here in Fort Worth. This week there is a small flyer inside the Weekly that encourages its readers attend Saturday’s Spring Gallery Night. We are blessed with many art museums, university art galleries, non-profit exhibition spaces, and art dealers here in Fort Worth that contribute to our city’s cultural and esthetic richness.
Annie wants to share a few places that have wonderful art and encourage you to visit them this weekend. For example, Artes De La Rosa Cultural Center for the Arts, 1442 N. Main Street, has a solo exhibition by Bernardo Valarino “Between Dying and Death.” Go by between 12 noon and 9 pm. Please call 817.624.8333 or visit http://www.artesdelarosa.org for more information.

This is the spot where art meets science. As a non-profit entity, the primary focus of the Atrium Gallery is to support our local art community by acting as a forum for both emerging and renowned artists to share their works with the community. The Atrium Gallery is an active public exhibition space and as such, has approximately 10 shows a year featuring a diverse range of works. The gallery, a proud member of the Fort Worth Art Dealers Association, also serves to augment and enhance the academic environment of the Health Science Center and strives to foster a respect and understanding of the visual arts.”
