Fort worth circle

DEFINITION

A varied group of men and women comprised the Fort Worth Circle with some of the best-known artists being Blanche McVeigh, Dickson Reeder, Veronica Helfensteller, Evaline Sellors, Flora Blanc Reeder, Wm. Kelly Fearing, Cynthia Brants, Bill Bomar, McKie Trotter, and Bror Utter. Perhaps most influential, however, were Dickson and Flora Reeder, whose home became a forum for the exchange of new ideas that they gathered on their travels. Although the styles of these artists were quite distinct from one another, common influences shaped the work of many in the group. Cubism, with flattened, shifting planes, structural grid, and roots in primitive art, colored the works of Dickson Reeder, George Grammer, Bill Bomar, Cynthia Brants, Bror Utter, and David Brownlow, among others. Surrealist interest in fantastic and dreamlike imagery influenced the work of Veronica Helfensteller, Kelly Fearing, and Flora Blanc Reeder, as well as that of Dickson Reeder, Bill Bomar, and Bror Utter. Although some of the Fort Worth artists worked in a number of modes the group as a whole moved beyond the earthy subject matter of Regionalism, which had dominated Texas art since the early 1930s.Source: The Old Jail Art Centerhttp://www.theoldjailartcenter.org/collections/american-and-european-works/fort-worth-circle
