Artist, James Zamora discusses his work in the exhibition.
Thumping rhythmic beats from the house D.J. added to the atmosphere as crowds walked through inspecting images and enjoying conversation.
The event was catered by Chile Pepper Grill and Denton’s Audacity Brew House.
Though there was no defined theme for the exhibition, the pieces were meant to inspire a sense of realism. Submissions from Madrid, for example, showcased intense portraits of people across several ethnicities.
One is the first of several exhibitions held in the Art Room located near Montgomery Plaza on West 7th street.
Alison Jardine, a British artist currently working in Dallas, says she was thrilled to be a part of the project’s beginnings.
“Given that it fits the theme, I do hope to work together again in the future,” said Jardine.
Local artist and event spectator Maria Cervantez said she was excited for the opening of a small gallery in Fort Worth.
“It’s great for local artists to have options closer to home to display their work,” said Cervantez.
The gallery hours are by appointment only. For more information or to make an appointment, visit their website.
