Two Worlds considers a loaned work by American artist Norman Lewis (1909-1979) titled Untitled (Subway Station), 1945, and selections from the Old Jail Art Center’s permanent collection as the artists explore the balance between depicting reality and investigating non-objective creations through abstraction." The show includes works by members of the Fort Worth Circle, a Texas artist group from the mid-twentieth centry.
An exhibition of works by Fort Worth-based artist Helen Altman. From the Old Jail: "Altman’s work centers around common materials, objects, and images of animals and nature. The objects she utilizes in her work often derive from the flawed or discarded. Altman then makes alterations to these objects elevating them into the realm of “art,” thereby forcing interpretation of her choices and manipulations."
