BENEFITS Arty Party Preservation is the Art of the City The hot ticket at Historic Fort Worth’s 15th annual two-weeks-long exhibit and sale is the opening-night Party with the Artists. Get first dibs on the artwork and rub shoulders with some of the 60 participating local artists, who donate 35 percent of each sale to Historic Fort Worth. Longtime participating artist Val Hunnicutt is featured this year for her photography-based mixed-media works imbued with a sense of humor. “Sometimes the humor is in the piece and sometimes it’s accidental,” says Hunnicutt. “It’s not a piece until you’re finished with it, and there’s always a little bit of surprise there.” Her mixed-media Mowhawk features a tab that moves a lawnmower up and down a young man’s head, as if cutting his hair. The work is one of 15 in Hunnicutt’s “Moving Pictures” series — each with a movable element — created with original photography and found images. Party with the Artists, 6:30 p.m. Sept. 7. Tickets, $150 ($100 for HFW members). Can’t make it to opening night? You can still purchase artwork during the exhibit’s run through Sept. 23. Free admission. Fort Worth Community Arts Center, 1300 Gendy St., Fort Worth, 817-336-2344, historicfortworth.org.
