Dallas's commercial gallery scene (the contemporary one) is falling into a couple of geographic camps: Deep Ellum is home to the somewhat edgier quartet of Barry Whistler, Road Agent, And/Or and Art Prostitute; and the Design District / Dragon street has just about everyone else, with Gerald Peters now joining the exodus from midtown. (Notable outliers are Mulcahy Modern in Oak Cliff and Dunn and Brown on upper McKinney avenue). These naturally-forming cultural districts are good for business, of course, and helpful for visitors. For more on the Dallas art scene, here's a fun little discussion from the message boards this week.
