Central Library

Still Life: Wildlife and Everything in Between

This exhibit features a wide variety of wildlife and still life, plus portraits and abstract pieces of art. The mixed media works include paintings, photographs and sculptures. All the artists live in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, but originally come from across the nation and the world. Differences in artist inspiration prompt a range of responses to the same subject matter.

On display in the Gallery from October 24 to December 6. There will be a reception from 2 - 4 p.m. on Sunday, December 6.

Hazel Vaughn Leigh: Where the Boys Were

Hazel Vaughn Leigh founded the Fort Worth Boys’ Club in 1935 in cooperation with the Kiwanis Club. Under Hazel’s leadership, the Club engaged and organized thousands of Fort Worth boys. Photographs, documents, and artifacts illustrate the history of Hazel Vaughn Leigh’s work.

On display in the West Wing from July 1 to December 31.

Ella Mae Shamblee Branch

Paper Noir

These collages create a micro-narrative from posters, books and drawings. The landscape features familiar but unrecognizable forms, generating pulp sensations of seduction, unease and climactic tension. The works are a conscious acceptance of colliding images and ideas.

On display from November 1 - 30. There will be a reception from 4 - 6 p.m. on Saturday, November 7.
