There are always lots of great art events in the DFW region, and this weekend is no exception. Here’s a few of my picks for a family art outing.
October 28, 6:30 – 9 pm
Reception for the Community Art Showcase at the Arlington Museum of Art
Every year artists from the DFW area are invited to exhibit their work in the Arlington Museum of Art during October and November. It’s not a juried competition, but there’s still an enormous amount of talent on display. The show actually opened earlier this month, but Friday night is the reception.
October 30, 2011, 2 – 4 pm
Reception for the 11th Annual Art Connection Member’s Exhibition at the Irving Arts Center
Don’t miss the annual exhibition at the Irving Arts Center featuring members of the center’s Art Connection program. There’s artwork in a wide variety of media from a wide range of ages.
