New Promotional Handout

LGAA members,
We have a new tool to help promote our wonderful art organization. We know we could never fit all the benefits that come with LGAA membership on one card. Especially the addition of new friendships with kindred spirits, so we tried to sum up the more concrete ones. The cards will be available soon. Watch for them at Shanley House Gallery.

LGAA Meeting, Monday, October 9th, 7:00 P.M. Guest artist John Hartley

Aloha  | 30 x 40  | Oil on Canvas | by John Hartley
LGAA Meeting, Monday, October 9, 7:00 P.M. at the Shanley House. Our guest artist will be John Hartley from Ft. Worth.

John Hartley discovered his life's passion while growing up in Piqua, Ohio. Encouraged to develop his talents in an academic environment, he moved to Fort Worth, Texas in 1982 to study art at Texas Christian University. After graduation, he began building a body of work that includes paintings, prints, and sculpture.

Exhibiting throughout Texas and the United States, his work has been critically received and is included in collections across the country. In 2013, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth purchased his painting, Night Duty, for their permanent collection, which also includes three of his monoprints from its 1990 exhibition, Forty Texas Printmakers. His exhibitions include shows at Kidder Smith Gallery in Boston and Martha's Vineyard, the Arlington Museum of Art, The Barth Galleries in Columbus, Ohio, and galleries in Fort Worth, Dallas and Houston, Texas.

He continues to make art today and remains active in the Fort Worth art community. He opened Gallery 414 in 1995, an alternative art gallery exhibiting local and regional contemporary artists. He has also been a teacher and a professional art handler, working with museums, private collectors and blue chip artists from around the world.

His art reflects his many interests: the human figure, toy collecting, social issues, and more. He actively promotes art education, and encourages young people to develop creative talent and thought. And he continues to explore new mediums and push his art to its fullest potential.
