Fort Worth sculp­tor Dou­glas B. Clark continues to find his in­spi­ra­tion in the wildlife of Texas and the Western United States. His bronze sculp­tures por­tray the details of the anatomy as well as cap­ture the per­son­al­ity of the in­di­vid­ual an­i­mal. His goal as an artist is to share his ad­mi­ra­tion and re­spect for these iconic an­i­mals with the viewer. His sculp­tures al­low the col­lec­tor to bring a bit of the Amer­i­can West into the home or of­fice.

Clark’s works can be seen on his web­site and at gal­leries across the South­west in­clud­ing In­sight Gallery, David Dike Fine Art, and Acosta Strong Gal­leries. He will be demon­strat­ing his work at In­sight Gallery’s an­nual Texas Masters show this spring. In June he will again be par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Sum­mer Stam­pede at the Na­tional Ranch­ing Her­itage Cen­ter at Texas Tech Univer­sity. Each year the con­test adds two works of art to the permanent col­lec­tion at the arts cen­ter with the win­ners of its pur­chase awards. Last year, Her­man Walker gar­nered the John Steven Jones Pur­chase Award and Sil­ver Medal Oil/acrylic with Quit­tin’ Time. Kathy Tate’s Faded Love won the Art Pa­trons Pur­chase Award, along with Gold Medal Oil/acrylic.

Ev­ery spring, the Bosque Arts Cen­ter hosts a dream week­end for art col­lec­tors with its Big Event fundraiser, this year held April 6 and 7. Cow­boy Artists of Amer­ica mem­bers Martin Grelle, Bruce Greene and Teal Blake are just a few of the na­tion­ally renowned artists con­tribut­ing orig­i­nal pieces to this year’s live auc­tion, which also fea­tures unique jew­elry, trips, din­ners and events. The week­end be­gins with a din­ner and dance with mu­sic by Grady Gaines and the Texas Upset­ters on Fri­day night, when guests will have a chance to pre­view the items in the 2018 auc­tion.
