In the galleries: ‘Panorama’ at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center

Posted 12:00am on Friday, Nov. 15, 2013

There is something peacefully contemplative about a well-painted cloudscape. Santa Fe-based artist Jamie Kirkland has an exhibit, “Panorama” at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, that is filled with low-horizon-line landscapes that make the sky their heroic star. “As a small child I traveled with my parents on a camping trip from Alabama to visit grandparents in Texas and then out to Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico. I can still recall the feeling of pure awe when we were on the other side of Dallas-Fort Worth and the horizon opened up to mythic proportions. Growing up in Alabama, surrounded by a dense thicket of vines and woods, this feeling of open, flat prairie and the huge expanse of sky felt otherworldly,” she says. She captures this ethereal otherness in her paintings, which will be on view at the FWCAC through Dec. 28. 1300 Gendy St., Fort Worth. Free. 817-738-1938; www.fwcac.com .
