‘On My Own Time’ Gallery 2018

This summer, GFF held our seventh annual ‘On My Own Time’ gallery at the Kettle Art Gallery in Deep Ellum, where we showcased various types of artwork created by our employees. The North Texas Business Council for the Arts’ (NTBCA) On My Own Time program is an annual, regional competition showcasing individual talents of corporations’ employees outside of the office.

A judge selected by the NTBCA was appointed to jury the works and select pieces to move onto the regional show held at Northpark Mall. Following the jury, GFF held a gallery reception to support our talented artists, as well as enjoy some food and drinks, and a musical performance by one of our own!

Below are this year’s award recipients for the gallery. Congratulations to all our award winners and thank you to everyone for making this year’s On My Own Time another success.
