I recently visited the Fort Works Art Gallery
located at 2100 Montgomery Street just down the street from the Amon Carter Museum of American Art in Fort Worth, Texas. They’re currently hosting a more than 30 year career retrospective, Chaos and Cosmos,
of the photographic works of Kate Simon
, with over 100 of her gelatin silver photographs on display. From their write up: “Kate Simon is a portrait photographer best known for her imagery of numerous artists, writers and musicians–from Andy Warhol, William S Burroughs to Iggy Pop. Kate has works in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the National Portrait Gallery/Smithsonian Institution, the Andy Warhol Museum, and more.”
Most of my favorite pieces in the show were her concert images, as she manages to capture the energy so beautifully of David Bowie, Sir Elton John, Mick Jagger in the midst of some of their performances.

I also was really struck by a series of portrait shots of Madonna. One in particular I stared out for many long minutes. The genius of the composition here is just striking. See how the white stones climbing up the building frame her on either side from behind. The shadow cast upon the building, Madonna in dark looking outfit, the skirt billowing to the right, and then the dark patch of color in the bottom right from where she precariously perches on the ledge. The darks of the composition draw your eye on the diagonal from the upper left to the bottom right. Her atypical pose gives a sense of personality and vitality to the shot.

The gallery is free to visit during their hours:
- Tuesday – Friday 11am-5pm
- Saturday 10am-6pm
- Closed Sunday & Monday
P.S. And if anyone wants to gift me that Madonna image, go for it.

Due to the forecast calling for wind and thunderstorms, organizers have decided to cancel Hurst’s celebratory Arts March Pop-Up, the Belaire Event Series – Spring Celebration this Saturday, March 23, 2019.
While the city is rescheduling it for April 27, I have prior commitments on the new date so will no longer be able to participate. I wanted to update all my followers so no one showed up looking for me and expecting a party, and finding neither.
My next festival appearance will be next weekend, Saturday, March 30 at the Bedford Arts Festival. Both admission and parking are free, and there will be an art marketplace, performances, food trucks, kids activities and more! I hope to see you there!
I’ll be bringing my photography to the Belaire Event Series – Spring Celebration which is a Pop-Up event held Saturday March 23rd from noon to 6pm.

Thanks to everyone who came out to support me during my photography exhibition Life in Frame, at Elm Street Studio in Keller, Texas. The show closed on March 1st, and it’s always a little bittersweet taking your art down off the wall at the end of an exhibition. But there’s always more opportunities around the corner!
If you missed your chance to swing by during the exhibit, here’s a few snapshots of the show.
Keller’s Elm Street Studio hosts the art show Life in Frame from January 9th through March 1st, featuring the works of local, award-winning photographer KC Hulsman. The exhibition is a celebration of life as well as the beauty of age and decay. The public is invited to the free artist reception on Friday, February 1at 6pm located inside the gallery located at 139 South Elm Street in Keller, Texas. Both Elm Street Studio and the artist KC Hulsman are committed to giving back to their local community, so a portion of all exhibition sales will be donated to the Humane Society of North Texas.
As a Hurst resident, finding opportunities to present my art locally to my neighbors is a rare occurrence. So I’m pleased to announce that my award-winning photography will be featured in my first ever solo exhibition “Life in Frame” inside the Hurst Public Library’s gallery. The free art exhibition will be on view during the library’s regular business hours from November 2nd through November 29th. [Please check with the library directly for any changes in their hours around the Thanksgiving holiday].
I’ve created a public Facebook Event so you can share across social media, as well as mark your FB calendar as interested or going with all the relevant details:
I’m pleased to announce that some of my photographic work (selections from my long exposure carnival ride series) will be on display in the “100 For 100” Exhibition at Fort Works Art Gallery located at 2100 Montgomery Street in Fort Worth, Texas. The show will run from October 27 through November 10.
Tickets to the Opening Day reception party (Oct. 27 from noon to 9pm) will be $10, with all proceeds going toward the non-profit organization Gallery Of Dreams to support future exhibition opportunities and events for local artists. The remaining days of the exhibition are free and open to the public to view during normal gallery hours.
