See a Western Master Afresh in “Another Frontier: Frederic Remington’s East”

T

The Sid Richardson Museum, a free museum located in historic Sundance Square in Fort Worth, has opened a new exhibition that promises to reveal a little-known side of artist Frederic Remington, best known for his iconic paintings depicting the American West. “Another Frontier: Frederic Remington’s East” features rarely loaned paintings and

the artist grew up. The paintings, letters, photographs, sketches, and diary entries take visitors far from Remington’s West to introduce them to the artist’s circle of Eastern friends, and to his beloved North Country. Remington’s New York studio was surrounded by the landscapes of the North Country, from the lakes and foothills of the Adirondacks to the Saint Lawrence River and the forests of Canada, inspiring him to re-create their beauty on canvas. “Another Frontier: Frederic Remington’s East” includes paintings of a campsite at Chippewa Bay, sketches of Remington and his wife, Eva, in the St. Lawrence River, a photo of Remington in the studio of his

artifacts from the Frederic Remington Art Museum in Ogdensburg, New York, and archival items from the St. Lawrence University Special Collections Library in Canton, New York, both located in the region where Small Oaks, Frederic Remington (1861-1909), Oil on canvas, 1887, Frederic Remington Art Museum, Ogdensburg, NY

Remington’s art so profoundly shaped perceptions of the Old West that many are not aware that he was an Easterner born and bred. He grew up in the North Country of New York, attended Yale, briefly settled in

River Drivers in the Spring Break Up, Frederic Remington (1861-1909), Oil on canvas, ca. 1905, Frederic Remington Art Museum, Ogdensburg, NY

the West, and then lived in New York and Connecticut. He made numerous trips to the West over the years, but composed the majority of his illustrations, paintings, and sculptures in the East. The display of Remington’s paintings of the American West from the Sid Richardson Museum’s permanent collection, with the special exhibition, “Another Frontier: Frederic Remington’s East”, offer an exceptional opportunity to see this Western master afresh. Photo Fun at The Sid Escape to Remington’s North Country in front of Boathouse at Ingleneuk. Post your

and Charles M. Russell (1864-1926) from the personal collection of legendary Texas oilman and philanthropist Sid W. Richardson (1891-1959). Free and Open Daily The museum, located at 309 Main Street in Sundance Square, is free and open daily. Free valet parking is available in Sundance Square.

West is Among the Best for Culture and Shopping-and-Dining Delights

A

by Michael H. Price

As long as we’re “out where the West begins,” as an iconic figure in Fort Worth’s history described this Cowtown, then we might as well look even further westward within the city itself. Pioneering publisher and civic booster Amon Carter may have intended to give Dallas the razz when he coined that phrase — but the West hardly could have picked a keener starting point than Fort Worth. And Fort Worth, in turn, hardly could have picked a site more right for its burgeoning west side Cultural District. Rippling with heavy-duty commercial, artistic and residential growth since the dawn of the 21st century, the west side overall has seen its very skyline change with the transformation of a busy West Seventh Street into a streamlined conduit connecting the downtown area’s Sundance Square development with the Cultural District. Heading west (naturally) from downtown Fort Worth, one finds the Cultural District radiating from the intersection where Seventh Street crosses University Drive and, in the process, morphs into the historic, brick-paved Camp Bowie Boulevard. Visitors in search of western-style discoveries — from plain-and-fancy dining to fine art and varied entertainment — will find such delights in volume on the west side. Cultural attractions, restaurants, mainstream and special-interest shopping, and lavish natural gardens flourish as a reminder of how Fort Worth has built upon its frontier origins. Several of the world’s finer museums, playhouses and galleries anchor a vast Cultural District. The hand-laid red-brick pavement of Camp Bowie Boulevard is an attraction in itself, lined with an everexpanding array of art galleries, stage-andscreen auditoriums, boutiques, scholarly museums, restaurants and lounges, and shopping malls. 6

The Cultural District The Fort Worth Museum of Science & History commands the westward view of the district from Montgomery Street, and just northward are additional cultural touchstones: Designed by renowned architect Philip Johnson, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art houses a definitive collection of American paintings, photography, and sculpture. The collection spans early nineteenth-century art to mid-twentieth century modernism. It is also home to nearly 400 works by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell. Nearby is the Kimbell Art Museum still living up to Newsweek’s description as “arguably the most beautiful museum in America” including its new Renzo Piano Pavilion addition. The neighboring Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is the oldest such museum in Texas — housed in a workof-art 2002 building designed by worldrenowned Japanese architect, Tadao Ando, and featuring bold gallery exhibitions, concert attractions and, every weekend, leading-edge independent-studio films. The Museum of Science & History, anchoring a campus within the Cultural District, has been designed by similarly renowned architects Ricardo and Victor Legorreta. Inside the Museum of Science & History, one finds vast galleries of Texas-bred dinosaur specimens and the state’s oil-and-gas heritage, in addition to the Cattle Raisers Museum, the Fort Worth Children’s Museum, Stars Café, and a new digital Noble Planetarium. The Omni Theater, an IMAX® superscreen dome, links with the Museum of Science & History and boasts a new digital sound system and enhanced lighting.The National Cowgirl Museum & Hall of Fame is next door to the FWMS&H.The NCM&HF honors women of the American West from

those who lived and worked on ranches or who led an expedition, or sat before an easel, aimed a rifle and hit the bull’s eye, or sat on the Supreme Court. When the museum meanderings trigger an appetite for fine dining, two long-established, museum-based cafés stand ready to serve. The Kimbell Buffet Restaurant offers indoor or patio lunch and a light evening menu within one of the most beautiful modern buildings in America. The Modern Art Museum’s 250-seat Café Modern, with an outdoor terrace, overlooks a serene reflecting pond. The Modern’s full-service kitchen delivers superb cuisine for lunch, Sunday brunch, and scheduled seasonal dinners. The Great Outdoors offers breakfast subs, lunch and dinner subs, soups, salads and all natural ice cream. Off University on White Settlement Road, a Texas barbecue tradition reigns at Angelo’s, offering a half-century of first-class BBQ and ultra-chilled beer. The Fort Worth Community Art Center, at the district’s western edge, showcases work by the city’s homegrown community of artists, in addition to live-theater venues. Neighboring the museum community is the city’s landmark Will Rogers Memorial Center, a versatile 85-acre entertainment complex — with 45 acres housing the Will Rogers Coliseum & Auditorium. Its majestic Pioneer Tower dates from the Texas Centennial Celebration of 1936. Still the most imposing site within the district, the coliseum holds pride of place as the first domed structure of its kind in the world. The complex also boasts an equestrian center and exhibit halls, home to the annual Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. Showplaces of Heritage and Artistry and Nature Shoppers can find a broad selection of merchandise in the Cultural District’s specialty shops. European antiques and upholstery can be found at Domain XCIV and the dh collection boasts progressive furniture designs in an appetite-whetting environment. 8

Southward off University Drive, visitors can experience the glories of nature at Trinity Park, a pristine oasis bordered by a fork of the placid Trinity River. Here, picnickers, joggers, and strollers can explore meandering pathways or travel on a miniature railroad. Opposite the park, across University Drive, Fort Worth’s Botanic Garden beckons — the oldest such site in Texas, a lush 109-acre tapestry of dappled shade accented by vibrant splashes of color. The Garden is home to thousands of species of native and exotic plants in 21 specialty gardens. The European-designed Rose Garden features more than 3,400 roses, and the 10,000-square-foot Conservatory houses tropical flowers and foliage from around the world. An on-site Gardens Restaurant serves light lunches and refreshments — with a view of the Garden and a varied gallery that often displays the work of local artists. Adjacent to the Botanic Garden is the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT) whose mission is to “reduce its footprint on the natural world as well as protect and restore ecosystem services.” BRIT’s building was designed as an example of how much of this can be accomplished. A short distance southward lies the illustrious Fort Worth Zoo, nationally ranked among the finest. The Zoo is home to thousands of animals, both native and exotic. Viewing facilities and natural habitat exhibits are set up for optimal views of the animals, often separated from their observers by only a river, a waterfall, or a large window. Shaded rest spots and picnic tables are available, with several on-site eateries. Across from the Zoo, Log Cabin Village offers another view of the city’s rich frontier history boasting seven authentic log homes, dating from the mid-to-late 1800s. Perioddressed interpreters greet visitors inside each cabin offering a living history of the home and its origin. The mood to explore might be triggered by art, dining, shopping, or the wonders of nature. Fort Worth’s west side meets all these interests and then some!

Coffee Shops in Fort Worth

By Laurie James, Food Blogger, Visit Fort Worth

Four coffee shops where you can work a little and caffeinate a lot! AMPERSAND 3009 Bledsoe St., Fort Worth, TX 76107 Ampersand offers the best of both possible worlds: coffeehouse by day, cocktail bar by night. During the day, Ampersand’s staff decant the airroasted coffee in beverages as simple as a Chemex pour over to more complex like a macchiato, latte or a dirty chai. You can also indulge in boozy combos with excellent names: Live Fast, Chai Young (with rum), A Whole Latte Love (spiked with vanilla vodka), and the cognac-infused hot chocolate Hennything Is Possible. AVOCA COFFEE 1311 W. Magnolia Ave., Fort Worth, TX 76104 The folks at Avoca Coffee Roasters take their beans seriously. Since 2011, owners Garold LaRue and Jimmy Story have taken Fort Worth with them as they pursued the best in micro-roasted batches of coffee. Forging partnerships with local eateries and regional grocery stores, the brand bloomed –– from breweries to barbecue joints to donut shops, you can find their product in sip-able and edible form. But it’s best enjoyed in their flagship store on Magnolia Ave., or their second location on Foch Street near Crockett Row. BREWED 801 W. Magnolia Ave., Fort Worth, TX 76104 Brewed invites locals to eat, drink and gather. If you’re meeting with a few folks, try the press pot for three. If you’re working alone, there are more drinks that you could down in a month, including a delicious cold brew that soaks overnight; the end result is smooth and less acidic than traditional iced coffee. Brewed gets points for the excellent menu ––all-day eats are offered along with craft beer and a nice wine selection. BUON GIORNO COFFEE 915 Florence St., Fort Worth, TX 76102 The owners of Buon Giorno Coffee were influenced by European coffeehouses, where people gather to linger over their beverages. The result: handcrafted espresso and specialty drinks with unusual flavors like Tuscany mocha (dark chocolate kissed with orange) or the white chocolate and caramel Roma Bianca and cocktail menu. It’s a one-stop shop for all your entertainment needs. October 2018

Sid Richardson Museum - The museum’s focus exhibition, “Another Frontier: Frederic Remington’s East” features paintings and artifacts on loan from the Frederic Remington Art Museum in Ogdensburg, New York, as well as archival items from the St. Lawrence University Special Collections Library in Canton, New York. The paintings, letters, photographs, sketches, and diary entries take visitors far from Remington’s West to introduce them to the artist’s circle of Eastern friends, and to his beloved North Country. He made numerous trips to the West over the years, but composed his multitude of illustrations, paintings, sculptures, and writings in the East. Affected by French Impressionism, their art exuded an immediacy and freshness of vision that appealed to Remington. As hugely important as the West was for Frederic Remington, and he for it, the East was another frontier that nurtured and sustained his art. Hrs. Mon.-Thurs. 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Fri. & Sat. 9 a.m.-8 p.m., Sun. noon-5 p.m. Free admission and free tours. Free valet parking in Sundance Square.
