The Fort Worth Biennial is a survey exhibition occurring every two years highlighting and celebrating the artistic talents of Texas. After missing the 2020 Biennial due to the pandemic, Arts Fort Worth will focus on the local creative community that kept us going through the shut down, highlighting Fort Worth and Tarrant County Artists.
Arts Fort Worth celebrates our community’s diversity through the arts, and showcase the talents of regional & national artists and art groups. The Biennial was the first exhibition at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, under the title The 39-Hour Show. In 2004, the exhibition became a biennial in even-numbered years.
Open to Tarrant County artists living or working at all levels may submit up to 3 artworks open to all disciplines with no theme. All mediums accepted including oils, acrylics, pastels, watercolors, prints, drawings, mixed media, sculpture, video, installation, photography, and digital art with no size restrictions. The exhibition will occur in Art Fort Worth’s Frost & Dale Brock & Visiting Angels Galleries . All artwork must be original and must not infringe upon any copyright or the rights of any person.

Juror’s Selection
The prize is a Solo Exhibition during Spring or Fall Gallery Night 2023, an event that occurs once a year during March. It is one of our most popular openings of year.

Gallery and exhibition period will be worked out between selected artist and exhibitions manager.
