Turtle Creek Artists
The Andelon Gallery
3737 Atwell Street, Suite 204, Dallas, TX
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

While I appreciate the fact that Andelon Art Gallery is "celebrating art today in Dallas, Texas", this is unfortunately one of the saddest collections of artist samples I've seen in an online Dallas gallery portfolio. I'm fairly certain "Blue Horse" was already painted by Franz Marc, at least once. "Fishermen" looks like a Gauguin except the natives are wearing jams circa 1989. At least "Taylor Pollock" isn't even trying. Be sure to check out the floating red chairs, as well. To add to the melancholia, the photographs of the works are terrible. I can't find out much of anything about this gallery or the owners except that it's kind of in Highland Park near Love Field.

Esther Ritz
The Carolina Ballroom of The Chambers
514 Jackson Street, Dallas, TX 75202
5:30 PM - 8:30 PM

FRIDAY, MAY 14, 2010

Stilettos and Candy
Robb Conover
Kettle Art Gallery
2714 Elm Street, Dallas, TX 75226
7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Also, the Dallas Museum of Art is staying open all night Friday: "The Museum will stay open round-the-clock, offering half price ($8) exhibition tickets to see The Lens of Impressionism from midnight until 10 a.m. Saturday morning." I saw this show a few weeks ago. It's a interesting combination of early French photography techniques and a sampling of impressionist pieces, set against a narrative of the development of tourism along the Normandy coast in the mid-19th century, once the railroad started going out there from Paris and rich people could leave town. Some of the photographs are unbelievable, especially when you read about the technology involved.

Nothin' much is happening Saturday.
