Gallery Talk


While movie screens are exploding with transforming robots and gun-wielding gangsters this summer, Dallas art galleries are keeping things a little more tranquil. And thank goodness—we still have post-traumatic stress from the last shoot-’em-up we were forced to endure. If, like us, you cherish your hearing, skip the surround sound and soak up the A/C at some of these fine showings. Check out Eat Me Drink Me at the Goss-Michael Foundation (2500 Cedar Springs Rd. 214-696-0555. This show features new acquisitions from 10 contemporary British artists. With a name inspired by Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the exhibit’s paintings, sculpture, and video “transform the galleries into a place of reflection, introspection, and a cabinet of curiosities.” (Through Aug 22. Tue-Fri, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Sat, 11 a.m.-4 p.m.) Then head over to the 15th Annual Goblet Invitational at Kittrell/Riffkind Art Glass (5100 Belt Line Rd., Ste. 820. 972-239-7957., where you can feast your eyes on drinking vessels from more than 60 glass artists from the United States and Canada. (Through Aug 9. Mon-Sat, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.)
The 4th Wall Gallery (2925 Fairmount St. 214-740-9400. continues its quest against conformity with the Justin Bua exhibition. Thirty works from the New York artist are on display, including 10 pieces that have never been seen. Highlights include “The DJ,” Bua’s most widely recognized work, and hand-embellished re-creations of some of his originals. (Through Aug 31. Tue-Sat, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.) Also don’t miss the Maya Eventov exhibit at Banks Fine Art (1231 Dragon St. 214-352-1811. New works by the Russian artist include mosaic acrylics marked by bursts of color. (Through Aug 27. Tue-Fri, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sat, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.) Support emerging artists at Craighead Green Gallery (1011 Dragon St. 214-855-0779. and its New Texas Talent exhibit. Juror Charissa Terranova, an assistant professor at UTD, made her selections from more than 1200 submissions. (Jul 25-Sep 5. Mon, 12-5 p.m.; Tue-Fri, 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m.; Sat, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.)
