The Dallas Art Fair is back and seemed way better than last year. Here are some highlights:
Dallas’ Conduit brought an interesting range of work.
I always love the stuff at this LA gallery.
Houston’s Moody brought a nice piece from Manual’s series of book photographs.
Los Angeles’ CB1 Gallery brought some subtly wonderful paintings by Mira Schor. I don’t know how the gouache, oil and gesso are used together in Trace but the surface is great. Also check out Schor’s blog, A Year of Positive Thinking.
Eclectic is the operative word at this Waxahachie treasure.
Dallas’s Marty Walker has a whole wall of Wayne White classics.
New York’s Lisa Cooley participated this year.
Dallas’s Kirk Hopper brought in Sharon Engelstein’s large floor installation, filled with vividly hued cuddling/copulating amoeboid forms.
(There was more good stuff but my laptop and its photos had an unfortunate encounter with tomato juice and is now at the Apple hospital until further notice…)
Pulled this from the web for Horton Gallery—retina searing painting by Palma Blank. It doesn’t convey in photos but bowls you over in person.
