Summer Art Festival at Southwest Gallery

A paintbrush dips delicately into a vibrant red paint on the artist’s palette. Light strokes are gently pressed along the canvas, creating a strong and smooth line. Despite its seemingly slow, careful progress, the painting seems to come alive in no time, as the painter efficiently brings to life what they are envisioning in their head. Watching an artist create a masterpiece live is one of the most intense, exciting, and enjoyable experience – why do you think Bob Ross had such a successful tv show? On August 14 and 15, Southwest Gallery is bringing that experience to the North Dallas Corridor as they host their Annual Summer Art Festival from 1-5 p.m.

“Focus On: Henry Ossawa Tanner” is Coming to the Dallas Museum of Art

Opening Sunday, Aug. 17, “Focus On: Henry Ossawa Tanner” will be showing at the Dallas Museum of Art. The exhibition features two of Henry Ossawa Tanner’s most famous paintings, “The Thankful Poor” (1894), and “Christ and His Mother Studying the Scriptures” (about 1908). By displaying the two pieces side by side, observers can see both the similarities among the works as well as the contrast that separates Tanner’s early work from that which the artist painted later in his career.

The Best Party in DFW Is in Fort Worth — and It’s on Monday

The tectonic house beats of “Apollo 11” by Cody Currie or “Good People - Director’s Cut Signature Mix” by Marko Militano shake the wooden dance floor and leather booths. Fluorescent lights timed to the music reflect from disco balls. The packed crowd bobs and bounces and dances to the enveloping, entrancing house and techno rhythms; people go in and out of the bathroom rubbing their noses or stare at the lights and disco balls with black pupils the size of dinner plates. At 2 a.m., on the dot, the pale yellow lights turn on; the revelers head outside, where everybody chatters and smokes and sobers up a bit, or tries to.
