It’s Alive! Alive! The Resuscitation of Art in the Metroplex


Fort Worth Community Arts Center

Art In The Metroplex, one of the oldest annual open-call visual art shows in the state, took a three-year break after a 28-year run at Texas Christian University, but now it’s back at The Fort Worth Community Arts Center. Art in the Metroplex’s call for entries is open to artists in most of the counties in the North Texas region and is a guest-curated affair.

This year’s curator is Sara-Jayne Parsons, who we yesterday announced has just taken the position of Curator of the Galleries at TCU. Previous curators include Polly Apfelbaum, Toby Kamps, and David Pagel. The show has ranged from tight and spare to inclusive and riotous; it all depends on the disposition of that year’s curator, as well as, of course, the quality of the submissions. Historically, there have been cash prizes for the top selections, also decided by the curator.

Call for submissions is open now and runs through August 25. There is a $35 fee to enter. Guidelines for entry can be found here.
