Galerie Kornye West is located at the 4000 Block of Camp Bowie Boulevard in the Fort Worth Cultural District, just west of the Amon Carter Museum of American Art and the Kimbell Museum of European Art.
Distiguished by a dedication to both artists and patrons and to the firm belief that representational fine art is a reaffirmation of mankind at its best, the gallery strives to celebrate and enjoy the fine arts in an atmosphere that fosters curiosity, admiration, and a dedication to preserving the visual arts in our current culture.
Gallery owner Paula Tillman Kornye brings to the gallery a wealth of knowledge of art history as well as a family background in the gallery business in Dallas and Ft. Worth. In choosing to underwrite and sponsor this project, she makes clear the gallery's dedication to a flourishing renaissance in traditional fine arts in the 21st century.
"In our current culture, all too often, we think that everything that needs exploration and examination in nature has been discovered. It is true that our natural areas in the United States have been mapped and explored, but that should really be the first chapter in our book of appreciating, understanding, and preserving our natural surroundings. That is why Deborah Paris’ Lennox Woods project is so worthy of our attention. Deborah is continuing the 19th century tradition of artist/explorer that was so essential in bringing to the attention of the American public the value of nature in our own back yards. I invite you to join us in a year long journey, as seen through the artist’s eyes, as she interprets this ancient forest in our own Texas. Let’s take the time to watch, listen, and learn about Lennox Woods and in turn be the recipients of the bountiful gifts these ancient woods hold for us. "
