Fort Works Art presents I Wanna Be A Cowboy By Marshall Harris

Jan. 4-Feb. 20

Fort Works Art, in conjunction with the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, presents I Wanna Be A Cowboy, an exhibition showcasing original graphite on mylar drawings and limited edition prints by Fort Worth artist Marshall Harris.

Coinciding with the annual Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo, this exhibition includes several of Harris’ original Saddle drawings, as well as his renowned ‘The Hand That Feeds’ drawing, on loan from collectors. This will be the first time these incredible original works will be on view to the public in Fort Worth. Keeping in the western theme, Harris will also have new additions to his colorful Psychedelic Saddle series that are available in various sizes.

Marshall Harris creates extremely complex and larger than life drawings executed with graphite on mylar. Each piece is labor intensive, comprising 300 – 400 hours spent rendering every small and seemingly insignificant characteristic of his subject, be it a scar on human skin or the creases found on a well-loved leather saddle. With his extraordinary and obsessive attention to detail, Harris invites you as the viewer to see the history of commonplace objects and the impact they have on our lives.
