Buzzworms Winners Announced

Buzzworms in the Backyard turned out a large crowd of protest art viewers last night at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center.

The art exhibition offers a unique experience for a Fort Worth gallery and a good first effort for a show with such a controversial theme. As artist Carol Ivey put it, a seed has been planted.

Tammy Gomez and Sound Culture goose-bumped the sizable crowd with her latest performance art piece, "Greed, Caution." As Don Young of FW Can Do put it, "It was art that does more than sit on a pedestal or grace a corporate boardroom wall. It was art to inspire action."

Awards totaling $1,000 were presented to three works selected by acclaimed artist and curator, Benito Huerta. The winners:

  • First Place: Jennifer Danson

  • Second Place: Joel Kiser

  • Third Place: Lori Thomson

  • Jennifer and Joel are both students at TCU. Lori is the owner or the Firehouse Gallery.

    Buzzworms in the Backyard is open to the public through December 29.
