ABOUT THE JUROR: Lauren Childs began studying classical figure drawing by the age of twelve. She attended both Northwestern University, studying Theatre Arts, and The University of Texas at Arlington, receiving her B.A. in Art History, where she met and studied under artist and Gallery Director, Benito Huerta.
In 2002, she co-founded her first arts organization, The United Voice Collective. They produced multi-faceted pop up events for two years in the DFW area. In 2004, she shifted her career and had an acclaimed run as an instructor and owner of a high-end specialty finishing company. During this time she studied under many European Painting Masters around the country and in Fort Worth. Her work with the father-son artist team Grigor and Laert Aleksi allowed her to hone her technical skills as a painter.
A decade later, Childs shifted back to her early goals, albeit matured. She co-founded Fort Works Art, which began as an event based pop up organization. Within two years, the corporation grew and has now opened its’ first permanent gallery space in the Cultural District in Fort Worth.
Childs now spends the majority of her day in the gallery, her home studio or working with and exhibiting the many talented artists that continue to inspire her. She is an award-winning artist whose work has been published and shown throughout Texas and New York.
