The New Art Darlings will be on view for one more week at the Fort Worth Community Art Center, 9-5PM Monday - Saturday. Stop by for a glass of wine and conversation with the artists in attendence on Saturday, November 24, 2-4PM.
The New Art Darlings, curated by Susan Roth Romans, partner at Ro2 Art, has been in development for over a year. While older women artists are finally getting some of the attention they have so long deserved, Susan also recognized how many older women artists Ro2 Art currently works with. This exhibition features thirteen women artists in their mid 60s through mid 80s who've shown with Ro2 Art in the past several years.
The show took on a new importance with the passing of Cuyler Etheredge. Cuyler has been a significant part of Ro2, and with her passing, Susan decided to dedicate the show to her. Unlike the others, who have been working artists their entire lives, Cuyler began painting at age 65, mastering several mediums and gaining acclaim for the stylized realism of her works.
