Gallery 414
Gallery Night Hours: noon–9:00 p.m.
On view: Put on your thinking cap for Fort Worth artist Rob Caslin’s solo exhibition Sweat Saves Blood, an exhibition of interlocking bodies of work haunted by malevolent forces. The gallery becomes a tripartite apparatus, intoning psychic violence and the dissolution of spatial form. War Graffiti dominates the initial sequence functioning as textual provocation leading one into the transitional zone of Psychotropic Topographies. Terminating the sequence is an obdurate fortification oscillating between conduit/structure, which occupies the final sector as a Disaggregated Spatial Form.

The Art Galleries at TCU:
Moudy Gallery

William Campbell Contemporary Art
Gallery Night Hours: noon–9:00 p.m.On view through October 15: Steve Murphy: All the Words Have Been SpokenAs a result of continued reductive investigation into the classical elements of sculpture, Murphy juxtaposes the elements of form, volume, surface, and edge into multiple formats. The works are created in such a way that they hint at motion that is about to occur or has just happened, allowing the viewer to feel as if there is more to the work than just the static object. Murphy’s intent is to be nonspecific, allowing the viewer to bring their own references to the work and find their unique connection to each piece.
