Fort Worthies: January/February 2019
With the launch of Madeworthy, we wanted to have a page dedicated to local people, places, and events that add to our city. Originally called “Be Seen,” this page was renamed “Fort Worthies” in our first anniversary issue. Here are the Fort Worthies we featured in our January/February issue.
Holland Sanders’ full-service communications agency HOLLAND collective is excited to announce partnerships with several new collaborators. These include Fort Worth’s newest social enterprise, The Worthy Co. (mentioned in this edition of Fort Worthies!), Arlington’s Urban Union District which is a mixed-use development that is giving new life to old buildings in Arlington’s downtown, and the national company Scottish American. The HOLLAND collective team is launching into 2019 with big plans for new, as-yet unannounced partnerships with intriguing stories to tell. Stay up to date on all H.c. happenings by following @HOLLANDcollective on Facebook and Instagram.
The Food Hall at Crockett Row opened at the corner of Crockett and Norwood Streets in December. The 16,000-square foot food hall, featuring a wide variety of cuisines, is the first of its kind in Fort Worth. Anchored by Knife Burger by John Tesar, the food hall is home to fast-casual vendors. Foods available include seafood, acai bowls, pizza and sausage, deli delights, Mexican food, shawarma bowls, poke, cupcakes, and waffles. There is a full bar and seating for 115 in a central area, with seating for 70 outside. The Food Hall is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with live music in the evenings.
For over 40 years, Fort Worth-based artist Trish Wise has been painting portraits and creating other works of art for clients around the world. Working mostly in oil and pastels, her classical realist style is simply timeless. Her commissions range from portraits corporate executives and university professors to children and families. After teaching for 30 years, Trish knows it’s impossible for anyone, especially children, to sit still in a studio for hours on end. Instead of long sittings, Trish relies on a photo shoot and a few short sittings where she focuses on capturing her subject’s personality. The results are, invariably, a happy client.
