    Women Painting Women

    Emma Amos, Three Figures, 1966

    May 15, 2022 - September 25, 2022

    Women Painting Women is a thematic exhibition featuring 46 female artists who choose women as subject matter in their works. This presentation includes approximately 50 evocative portraits that span the late 1960s to the present. International in scope, Women Painting Women recognizes female perspectives that have been underrepresented in the history of postwar figuration. Painting is the focus of the exhibition, as traditionally it has been a privileged medium for portraiture, particularly for white male artists. The artists here use painting and women as subject matter as vehicles for change and range from early trailblazers like Alice Neel and Emma Amos to emerging artists such as Jordan Casteel and Apolonia Sokol. Some, such as Jenny Saville, work on large canvases, producing images that dwarf the space around them, while others, including Somaya Critchlow, paint on a modest scale that invites close viewing. All place women—their bodies, gestures, and individuality—at the forefront. 

    Four themes trend in the works included in Women Painting Women: The Body, Nature Personified, Color as Portrait, and Selfhood. Through these themes, the artists conceive new ways to activate and elaborate on the portrayal of women. Replete with complexities, realness, abjection, beauty, complications, everydayness, and joy, the portraits in this exhibition make way for female artists to share the stage with their male counterparts in defining the image of woman and how it has evolved.

    The Fort Worth Botanic Garden | Botanical Research Institute of Texas is em-BARK-ing on a new adventure with new “Dog Days” to take place five weekends in 2022. On these weekends, guests are invited to bring their four-legged family members to the Garden for a day of frolicking and fun. 

    Official Dog Days dates are as follows: 
    February 19-20 

    May 21-22 

    July 16-17 

    August 20-21 

    November 19-20 

    “Fort Worth dog lovers can give their canines a new ‘leash’ on life in a beautiful, outdoor setting,“ said Patrick Newman, FWBG|BRIT CEO and President and proud owner of two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Charlie and Milo. “Dog Days offers yet another way for local residents to explore and discover the many wonders of our 120-acre campus.” 

    Dog Days will be held during regular Garden hours: 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. in the winter and 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. in the summer. Regular admission is required for humans, with an additional $5 per dog. FWBG|BRIT Members receive free admission and pay $5 per dog — with complimentary bandana(s). For the health and happiness of our furry friends, hydration stations will be available across the campus. 

    To ensure the success of Dog Days and safety of all participants, the Garden asks that guests and pets adhere to specific rules and etiquette:  

    • All dogs must be leashed, more than four months old and up to date on vaccinations. 
    • Waste must be bagged and placed in trash receptacles. The Garden will have bags available for use. 
    • Dogs must be socialized and well-behaved. If dogs are seen acting aggressively, Garden staff reserves the right to ask owners to leave.
