On My Own Time 2016

This August marks GFF’s fifth consecutive year of participating in the Business Council for the Arts’ On My Own Time exhibit. The Dallas-based organization encourages local companies to allow an opportunity for employees to display any artistic passion they may pursue in their free time. Last week, GFF held our annual OMOT reception at the Design District’s Circuit12 Contemporary. The evening was spent socializing, discussing artwork and influences of all kinds, and even listening to a musical performance put on by one of our own! Below are this year’s award recipients from the gallery. GFF would like to thank BCA for allowing us to participate, Circuit12 Contemporary for hosting us, and all of the artists who submitted work this year! We couldn’t do it without you!
