The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth dedicates its latest show to an artist who works in our backyard, as it were. Julie Bozzi was born in California in 1943 and fell under the influence of the minimalist movement and Edward Hopperís objective, non-celebratory urban landscapes. In contrast to Hopperís work, however, Bozziís landscape paintings are quasi-urban, mostly depicting dense but clearly marked-off lines of trees, such as one might see by the side of highways in Texas. In fact, she has lived in Texas since 1980, and frequently uses areas near Dallas and Fort Worth, as well as the Gulf Coast and the Piney Woods section of East Texas, for her subjects. The long and narrow dimensions of her works are due to her method, which is to sit in her car and paint directly onto the canvas what she sees through her windshield (which makes us wonder whether the inside of her car is spattered with paint or whether she re-upholsters on a regular basis). The Bozzi exhibit is a neat counterpart to the Joan Mitchell show of abstract paintings thatís also running at the Modern; the two artists will see the museum through to the end of the year.

Julie Bozzi: Landscapes 1975-2003 runs Nov 23-Feb 22 at Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, 3200 Darnell St, FW. Admission is $4-6. Call 817-738-9215.
