40 Years and Counting


40 Years and Counting, an exhibition celebrating four decades of William Campbell Contemporary Art, will be on display November 22 through December 31. The gallery will host an opening reception and party for patrons, gallery artists, and the community at large on Saturday, November 22, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. The comprehensive show will feature the Campbell's 40-plus artists, many of whom have been with the gallery since its early days, including Stephen Daly, Michel Demanche, Julie Lazarus, Mark Smith, Richard Thompson, Kevin Tolman, Cecil Touchon, and Judy Youngblood.

40 Years and Counting Pam and Bill Campbell opened their gallery in 1974, after leaving respective careers in retail management and commercial art. The couple leased space on Camp Bowie Boulevard in the building that formerly housed the Chapman Gallery, and began to shape what would become Fort Worth's first gallery devoted exclusively to contemporary art. Seven years later, the gallery moved to its current location on Byers, reaffirming its status as the city's flagship contemporary gallery and Cultural District anchor.

40 Years and Counting Over the past 40 years, the Campbells have remained leaders in establishing the Fort Worth gallery scene, and have continuously worked to bolster the arts community through both commercial and volunteer endeavors. They were founding members of the Fort Worth Art Dealers Association, as well as the principal engineers of that organization's biannual Gallery Night. They are also active supporters of the Emergency Artists Support League (E.A.S.L.).

40 Years and Counting Reflecting on the past four decades, Bill remarks: "All facets of our lives revolve around the gallery. It's a 24/7 enterprise, and we enjoy every minute. We treasure the relationships we have built with our clients and artists, and many of them have become our good friends. We are so pleased and honored to be celebrating 40 years of bringing the finest contemporary art to Fort Worth."

A portion of sales from the 40 Years and Counting anniversary exhibition will benefit E.A.S.L.
