1. Dallas Art Fair
April 10-12
Fashion Industry Gallery, Dallas

Ninety galleries from everywhere (and one from Houston!)  In a glossy, if cramped, array, complete with a voluminous schedule of events, online here. If you had started two days ago, you could have made a week of it!

2. Jos de Gruyter and Harald Thys: Die Schmutzigen Puppen Von Pommern
The Power Station, Dallas
April 8 – June 12

Ragged puppet sculptures, rooted in a uber-German folksy, tragicomic sensibility expose the bankruptcy of humanity through exhaustive tone, bare aesthetic, and dead-pan humor.



3. Anila Quayyum Agha / Nate Lowman / David Salle
Dallas Contemporary
April 9 – August 23

Anila Quayyum Agha’s ArtPrize-winning piece projects tilework patterns from the Alhambra; Nate Lowman’s America Sneezes; David Salle shows Debris, including new ceramics!


4. Slideluck Dallas II
April 11, 7–10 pm One night only!
AT&T Performing Arts Center at Strauss Square, Dallas

Slideshow + potluck= slideluck. Dinner outdoors, pictures of art, and a DJ; if the weather’s fine, what could be better? Oh, and it’s FREE! Grease up that Jello mold, and bring a food item to share.
