A note from Gregory:

In 2020 I was honored to be asked to asked to be the poster artist for the MAIN ST. Arts Festival.  Although I’m a Chicagoan now, I lived in Fort Worth for the first 25 years of my adulthood, attending TCU and getting my degree in ceramics from UTA. I have been involved with this Festival for over 20 years as a volunteer, a juror, a judge, a participating artist, and as a member of the Artist Advisory Board, so it was a very special honor.  I was pleased with the work I did…4 colorful ceramic tiles depicting the Tarrant County Courthouse that looms over the north end of Main Street, arranged in a grid. I thought the finished poster was beautiful!

And then COVID cancelled MAIN ST. For two years!

I am honored once again to create a new work for the 2022 poster. When thinking about what to do I knew I didn’t want to repeat myself with more tiles. I knew I wanted to acknowledge our missing 2 years in some way, but  I didn’t want to be maudlin about it. That train of thought led me to the idea of “Welcome back to MAIN ST!”.  Already in my current collection I had a Smiley Face Wall Ball and it came to me that all I needed to make them entirely Texan was a hat!  

I call them Cow Folk Wall Balls (I think gendering a smiley face is ridiculous)! So far I have the hat available in 15 colors, 12 of which are smiling out at you in the new poster…in a grid because I love a grid…WELCOME BACK!
