ArtsGoggle, the fall crawl through Fort Worth’s near south side, returns Saturday evening, and continues to grow. Organizer Fort Worth South says the event will feature more than 200 artists, 50 bands and three village hubs this time.
Artists will be positioned on the street in booths and in some of the entertainment venues. Others bring their own mobile galleries, such as Jenna Robinson, who sells vintage and retro clothing from Lulu’s Unique Shop, inside a brightly decorated Airstream trailer.
New gallery Cocanour Studios has opened and timed its debut to ArtsGoggle. While a bit off the beaten path at 207 S. Jennings Ave., it is worth a side trip to see Jeff Cocanour’s paintings of historic views of Fort Worth.
The Goggle has even lured one of Fort Worth’s most celebrated galleries into participating. William Campbell Contemporary Art is staking out wall space in the Moncrief Cancer Institute, which is a good sign of recognition. Denton’s Brave Combo will be playing at The Live Oak; this is the only event with an entry fee, at $14.
The semiannual ArtsGoggle is gaining steam and quality participants. It’s what Main St. Fort Worth Arts Festival was decades ago.
