The Fort Worth Modern really has its act together. In addition to knocking out killer exhibitions, they also do great events. Needless to say the art culling, at least, is due to well-executed curatorships. Tonight you can visit the Dallas Contemporary and engage in a workshop with Andrea Karnes, one of the big brains behinds all of those eye-boggling productions. You'll have a chance to chat with her about the process and what it takes for an artist to get his or her work recognized in a gallery or museum setting. It's 10 bucks. The event runs from 6 to 8 p.m., but if you're already deep in a thoughtful project and cannot break away, here's a quick substitute tutorial from Hennessy Youngman. It's not suitable for work on account of all the cursing and cunnilingus pantomime.
