Arty Pants

Over the years, during this issue I have shared stories about my amazing art teacher Elizabeth De Wolfe and my love of the MAIN ST Fort Worth Arts Festival. My daughter recently chaperoned “The Noodle’s” field trip to the Kimball and she told me that she just didn’t get looking at art. I told her art is subjective, it’s how the art you see makes you feel. I can remember the first time I saw the Degas Ballerina paintings. I was no more than 10 years old and had high hopes of becoming a prima ballerina. When I took one look at that painting, I was transported into that French dance class. I am just knowledgeable enough about some artists to sound like I know what I am talking about. In reality, I pick my favorites and when asked about someone I don’t know, I excuse myself for some sort of urgent matter.

April in Fort Worth is the kick-off of one of my favorite times. So go to the Modern and enjoy brunch, walk through the Kimball, attend the Main St Arts Festival, listen to one of the many amazing musicians playing on the numerous patios across the city.

The cover is a painting done by local artist James Hinkle. He introduced us to the wonderful people at Arts Fifth Avenue and we are blessed to call him a friend.

As always, we are thankful to be allowed to share our stories with you and hope that you reach out and share yours with us.

See you around town!
