ART



Morris Louis’s Abstract Paint Pouring

The late Morris Louis, whose work goes on exhibit this month in the Fort Worth Art Museum, managed to produce some of the most beautiful, and radical, paintings of the Fifties. After repeated (and largely unsuccessful) attempts to paint more or less conventional abstract art, Louis set aside his brushes in 1957 and started pouring paint directly onto raw canvas that he had tacked loosely to a wooden frame. Gravity and the viscosity of die new acrylic paints did the rest. Streamers and skeins of pure color washed down die face of the canvas and soaked into its surface, creating works that seem more like meteorological phenomena-storms and thunderbolts of paint- than art.

And yet a Louis painting is never just a happy accident. To an astonishing degree, he was able to control the outcome of his work, varying the precise width and trajectory of a band of paint and orchestrating the disappearance and re-emergence of a color, to give his works a surprising sense of balance and tension, The Fort Worth show, the first comprehensive exhibit of Louis’s art since his untimely death in 1962, focuses on three great series of paintings; the lyrical Veils with their transparent skeins of color; the vibrant and dynamic Unfurled paintings; and finally the most radical of all, the Stripes, in which he was able to reduce painting to a bare minimum. Feb 15-April 12 at the Fort Worth Art Museum, 1309 Montgomery. Tue 10-9, Wed-Sat 10-5, Sun 1-5.(817)738-9215.

Shotgun Hayse At Old City Park

As part of its continuing effort to represent the cultural diversity of the history of North Central Texas, Old City Park has recently restored, and opened for tour, a shotgun house, originally built in 1906 on Guillot Street in the State-Thomas neighborhood of Dallas. The shotgun house is generally considered to be an African-American architectural form, which was introduced into New Orleans in the early 19th century by freed Haitian blacks. Because the houses were in-exponsive and easy to construct, and because their narrow width made economical use of land, shotgun houses were built in great numhers during the late 19th and early 20th centuries throughout the South and Southwest. The deed to the house will he presented to Park Board President Billy Allen at the public dedication ceremony Sunday, February 1, at 3 pm at Old City Park. 421-5141.
