Metrognome Collective Art Shows

For Fort Worth Gallery Night, the not-for-profit artists co-op Metrognome Collective is thrilled to present three shows in three different venues around Fort Worth.

  • The Metrognome Peep's Show: This new show of art by Fort Worth artists: Mark Penland, Adam Werner, James Lassen, Jill Foley, Delaney Allen, Jesse Barnett, Christopher Blay, Nick Prendergast, Paul Leicht, and more. The Peeps Show will be located in our temporary gallery space on the ground floor of the Lancaster Lofts building located at 1324 East Lancaster Ave. Fort Worth, Texas 76102. The show is being sponsored by Flora Brewer of the Lancaster Lofts to spread the word about the future home of The Studios at Lancaster Lofts. The Studios will be newly constructed prestige artist's studios and a gallery, aimed at developing a new arts district just east of downtown Fort Worth. Intended to be the working home for ten carefully chosen fine and commercial artists, The Studios are a badly needed resource for the Fort Worth arts community. Metrognome's Peep's Show is Sept. 8, and the gallery will be open from 12pm to 12am. Admision is free.

  • The Chat Room Pub Show: The prints of Andrew Kendall are on display. Andrew is a talented printmaker from north Texas, and his distinctive, gritty work, inspired by collecting trash, strikes an delicate balance between the worlds of pop and urban style street art. The art perfectly suits the eclectic crowd at the Fairmount neighborhood's Chat Room, and complements their fine selection of spirits. On display through Oct. 1 at the Chat Room Pub, 1263 W. Magnolia Ave.

  • Arts Goggle: Metrognome artists will be displaying work at the amazing Spiral Diner, Fort Worth's only vegan restaurant. The Fort Worth Arts Goggle is on Friday, September 7, from 5-10pm at various locations. The Spiral Diner and Bakery is at 1314 W Magnolia Ave.
