SOCKS ON FIRE - John Carlisle Moore's Annual Art Extravaganza
Featuring the works of: John Carlisle Moore, Painter/Photographer; Wally Knight, Sculptor; and Harry Hoggard, Graphic Artist.
About the Artists:
John Carlisle Moore – This will be his 10th anniversary of producing this event at Arts 5th. His Art openings are always a little bit different. Fun for the whole family! A long time painter, writer, and photographer, his imagery is reliably eclectic and evolving, but always with an essential narrative bouncing through his work. This year, he will have 10 new paintings along with some older pieces which are continuously updated. (Shows too numerous to mention here across the US., also in many private collections)
Wally Knight – Works exclusively in secret behind the “Pine Curtain” in Nacogdoches, TX. This is his fourth appearance at this event. Wally wanders scrap heaps across the states in search of discarded gizmos, vacuum cleaners, boxes, old foxes, wires, bulbs, stories, radios, and reassembles them into stories which delight the mind and emerging with a new reason for being. (again, numerous shows across the South, and in many private collections
Harry Hoggard - In addition to his well regarded history as one of Fort Worth’s most noted Blues Harmonica Players, he is also an astonishing artist utilizing primarily Prisma Color pencils with which he generates portraits of musicians of all calibers in performance. It was his recent portrait of Miles Davis in performance that got him into this show. But do not be mistaken. He has a long line of such portraits that he has produced and we are only too happy to have him in this show.
