Sid Richardson Museum presents "Night & Day: Frederic Remington's Final Decade," which explores works made in the final decade of Remington’s life, when the artist alternated his canvases between the color dominant palettes of blue-green and yellow-orange. The works included range from 1900 to 1909, the year that Remington’s life was cut short by complications due to appendicitis at the young age of 48.

In these final years Remington was working to distance himself from his long-established reputation as an illustrator, to become accepted by the New York art world as a fine artist, as he embraced the painting style of the American Impressionists. In these late works he strove to revise his color palette, compositional structure, and brushwork as he set his Western subjects under an interchanging backdrop of the shadows of night and the dazzling light of day.

Throughout his career Remington revised and reworked compositions across media, from his illustrations to his oils to his three-dimensional bronzes. As part of this process of revision, Remington took extreme measures from 1907 to 1909 when, as part of his campaign toward changing the perception of his art, he destroyed well over 100 works that he felt did not satisfy his new standards of painting.

A contract made with Collier’s magazine that began in 1903 meant that many of the works he destroyed are preserved through halftone reproductions published by that journal. The inclusion of these images in this exhibition offers the opportunity to compare them with modified and remade compositions Remington produced in his final years.

Amon Carter Museum of American Art presents "Morning Light: Photographs of David H. Gibson"

In a world entrenched in societal division and ecological turmoil, it can be refreshing to step back and enjoy the quiet beauty of the natural world. Dallas photographer David H. Gibson has been exploring the beauty of the Southwestern landscape for more than 50 years, building a reputation as an astute interpreter of effervescent moisture and changing light. "Morning Light: The Photographs of David H. Gibson" takes viewers to two of his favorite sites, Cypress Creek in Wimberely, Texas, and Eagle Nest Lake nestled in the mountains east of Taos, New Mexico.

The 20 works in the exhibition draw attention to the artist’s repeated return to each site and his fascination with dawn’s break into day. In those mystical moments, he finds the essence of each spot. Through his photographs, Gibson coaxes us into getting up before dawn, stepping outside, and noticing the quick tempo of early morning’s changing light.

Ultimate party house with indoor pool hits market for $745,000 in Fort Worth

Wild house for sale

A seemingly inconspicuous home in east Fort Worth shows that you never really know what kind of wild-and-crazy stuff is going on inside a house - and not to judge a building by its exterior.

The four-bedroom, five-bathroom house at 1809 Carl St., four miles east of downtown Fort Worth, recently hit the market for $745,000. At first glance, it looks like many homes in the area. But a peek at the interior photos shows why it's attracted lots of attention on the Zillow Gone Wild Facebook page and Twitter account.

Called a fusion of “ultimate” party house and “coolest” investment property in its Zillow listing, the home seems to be built around an indoor, ground-heated swimming pool complete with slide and diving board.

Additional party house highlights include:

  • An outdoor kitchen
  • An outdoor shower
  • A hot tub
  • Air hockey and pool tables
  • Astro turf from TCU’s field
  • Party lighting
  • Enough parking for a tour bus
  • Multiple indoor and outdoor entertaining areas

The home, built in 1940, features 7,179 square feet of living space on less than half an acre of land. The property includes the main four-bedroom house plus a loft-style studio back house with a hot tub and underground wine cellar.

Thousands of commenters on Zillow Gone Wild shared their thoughts about the unconventional home. Several of them compared the house to game shows, 80s department stores and frat houses.

“It’s like an 80s department store and a game show had a baby. I’m overwhelmed and it was only pictures,” one critic wrote.

“This house screams frat house decorated with the entire contents of a furniture warehouse going out of business sale,” another critic commented.

Some commenters said the house had less than innocent undertones.

“There’s $700,000 worth of coke in that green carpet around the pool, guaranteed,” one commenter said.

Another commenter wrote, “Part Dave and Buster’s, part 1980s drug lord. I LOVE IT.”

Other, nicer comments noted the house’s bright, fun colors and the appeal of an indoor swimming pool.

Lance Blann of Dave Perry Miller Real Estate has the listing; attempts to reach him so far have been unsuccessful.

The heated indoor pool has a slide and a diving board.

Dallas-Fort Worth artist lands collection of colorful canvases at Target stores

Artist News

A local artist who creates colorful and vibrant art has a collection being sold at Target.

The artist is Roma Osowo of Dallas, and the 18-piece collection features a variety of abstract masterpieces ranging in designs and sizes, each unique but filled with Osowo's joyful and optimistic perspective. The collection is available in Target stores until Sunday, December 4, and online until Monday, September 4, 2023.

The collection came about when a home decor company saw the potential in her talent and made introductions to Target.

There are smaller canvases measuring 10" X 13" and 11" X 11", priced at $14.99, some of which have sold out; and larger canvases measuring 24" X 24", 24" X 30", and 36" X 36", priced from $50 to $85.

Osowo was born and raised in the British Virgin Islands, before migrating to the U.S. when she was 16. She spent more than a decade having a family and put art on the backburner, but returned to painting in earnest in 2017.

She favors rich, vibrant colors, calling herself a "color-loving abstract artist who creates vibrant, joy-filled art to elevate beautiful spaces."

She has also done cellphone cases, calendars, personal diaries, and other home goods, as well as a special clothing collection and resortwear for Trefle, a retailer based in the BVI.

Her work has been collected worldwide, and has been sold in a few retailers in the U.S. such as HomeGoods and Barnes & Noble. She's also has been featured in magazines such as Traditional Home and has worked with brands like Erin Condren, Pressed Juicery, Framebridge, Wexel Art, and Lemonade Pursuits.

“I want people to associate my name with the type of art and feeling they want to create in their homes,” she says. “As well as a name that reminds people that it’s never too late to pursue what you love.”
