See The Artist For The Trees

If you're on President George W. Bush's mailing list, you're probably already familiar with James Blake's work. The Fort Worth artist had the honor of designing Laura and Dubya's 2006 Christmas card--if having one's work appreciated by a president not exactly renowned for discernment or intelligence can be considered an honor. Regardless, Blake's focus has gone from Bushes to trees, as his latest exhibit of line drawings places particular emphasis on the arboreal, with intensely detailed depictions of gnarled old trees. The display, simply titled Drawings, hangs through June 19 at William Campbell Contemporary Art (4935 Byers Ave. in Fort Worth) 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and by appointment. Call 817-737-9571 or visit
Tuesdays-Fridays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Saturdays, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Starts: May 14. Continues through June 19, 2010
