Located in the same building that houses the TCU School of Art, Moudy Gallery showcases student work, including exhibitions by undergraduates and MFA students. This 900-square-foot space also functions as a responsive place for one-off or pop-up projects that students and faculty develop. TCU regularly shows its support for local professional artists by providing a collaborative environment in the Moudy Gallery as a testing ground for work-in-progress. Exhibitions or events of this kind help artists get involved in numerous ways and significantly benefit TCU students by enabling them to develop their professional networks with the local creative community.

During Family Week, the Moudy Gallery will feature New Faculty Showcase: Dian Jian, TCU Assistant Professor of Art. Dan Jian is a visual artist who works across painting, drawing, animation, and video. At TCU, Dan teaches drawing and painting. She has exhibited her work internationally and here in the United States. Her Moudy Gallery showcase will feature new drawings and animations.

Friday, September 24  |  12:00-5:00pm | 2900 West Berry Street
Fort Worth Contemporary Arts (2900 West Berry Street) was established as a satellite space in 2008 to offer a platform for innovative contemporary art from an international context. Its regular changing exhibition program reflects significant developments in art and often features artists’ work that has never been shown in Texas before or is being made on-site during a residency period. During Family Week, Fort Worth Contemporary Arts will feature the work of artists Dani and Sheilah ReStack.

As partners and collaborators, Dani and Sheilah ReStack make video and photographic installations that explore connections between the domestic and the feral in contemporary life. Their approach weaves together real and mythical understandings of family, intimacy, place, desire and ritual. They often employ aspects of social practice and performance as a means to examine queerness, site-specific histories and human-animal relationships. Dani ReStack is an Associate Professor of Art at The Ohio State University. Sheilah ReStack is an Associate Professor of Art and Chair of Studio Art at Denison University.
