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.
