Art at Main St.: our critic’s highlights

Posted 10:43am on Thursday, Apr. 18, 2013

The variety of art found at the Main St. Fort Worth Arts Festival is quite broad. In the first block of booths between Second and Third streets, I found Daniel and Stephanie Wright’s bags — quite nice — worked with aged surplus military material and new leather trim and detailing. They are in the emerging artists section, booth 352. Also catching my eye were the ornately surfaced ceramics by Don McWorter that seem a mash-up of Southwestern and Asian influences, at booth 334. Terrie Mangat’s unusual quilts, which she embroiders, appliqués, paints and beads, found at booth 311, are fun, and Fort Worth-based glass artist Raymond Rains’ new seashell-shaped glass pieces in booth 301 should be a stop as well. The best plan for seeing it all is to check out the festival’s website, www.mainstreetartsfest.org, look at the artists’ brief slide shows, and note your favorites. That way, if you get sidetracked by the music, a bite of food or copious amounts of adult beverage, you still have your plan of action.
