We Signed, oil on canvas, 30″ x 40″ by Grayson Harper

Buzzworms in the Backyard is an art exhibition with a purpose. For the uninitiated, Buzzworms asks artists to submit a piece of work that protests the practice of urban gas drilling. The contest is based out of the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, and tonight at the Center the winners of the contest will be revealed.

I asked Don Young of FW CanDo (Fort Worth Citizens Against Neighborhood Drilling Ordinance, the group that organizes the event) if he could provide me with one of the entries, and he sent me Grayson Harper’s oil painting We Signed, above. Don says that six artists will take home cash prizes tonight, but he says you’ll have to show up for the opening reception tonight at 6 to learn who they are.

  • Getting art out of the ivory tower galleries and integrating it into the community, like this exhibition, is a hallmark of the art revolution in painting – one of main points.
