Artspace111 is pleased to present The Rodeo Show, featuring artists Donna Howell-Sickles, Jo LeMay Rutledge, Linda Blackburn, and Rima Canaan Lee.
This Group Show will celebrate Texas Rodeo Culture by showcasing women artists who have first-hand experience with the rodeo and create work around the social influences the rodeo has on Texas.
Sense 1896, the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo has been known as the most authentic western lifestyle experience. It is an entertaining and unique part of Texas culture that significantly enhances the way locals and tourists alike view Fort Worth. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the rodeo will not be taking place, or at least not in the way Texans are used to. The only other time this event was canceled was in 1943, near the height of World War II. Artspace111 has not taken this news lightly, and it has inspired the gallery to present artworks created to embrace rodeo culture and give patrons the opportunity to experience rodeo nostalgia through visual art.
