Gallery Talk

It’s hard not to fall for autumn, especially after you’ve spent the last several months suffering through triple-digit temperatures. For us, the changing leaves mean it’s okay to come outside again. And what better way to celebrate the end of heat-induced hibernation than by getting out and enjoying the many galleries our city has to offer? At 4th Wall Gallery (2925 Fairmount St. 214-740-9400. www.the4thwallgallery.net), more than 45 works by fantasy artist Kinuko Y. Craft are on display. See paintings and illustrations from Craft’s decades-long career, including book art, editorial pieces, and more. (Sep 4-Oct 31. Tue-Sat, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.) When you’ve had enough fantasy, check out The Naturalists exhibit at Haley-Henman Gallery (2335 Hardwick St. 214-749-1277. www.haleyhenman.com). The four female painters in this show, including D Art Slam winner Sunny Jacquet, “embrace the natural elements in our world.” (Sep 19-Oct 31. Wed-Sat, noon-5 p.m.) Support the home players at David Dike Fine Art’s 14th annual Texas art auction and exhibition. Held at the McKinney Avenue Contemporary (3120 McKinney Ave. 214-953-1212. www.the-mac.org), the event features more than 300 works and benefits the MAC’s Texas Art Exhibition fund. (Oct 17. 4-9 p.m.) For more Texas-themed art, head over to the Latino Cultural Center (2600 Live Oak St. 214-671-0052. www.dallasculture.org) for Maestros Tejanos: Tina Fuentes. Fuentes’ fruit images are inspired by the colors of her native West Texas. (Sep 3-Nov 21. Tue-Sat, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.) Love him or hate him, everyone knows the name Peter Max. If you’re in the love camp, take note. You can meet the man himself at his exhibition at Samuel Lynne Galleries (1105 Dragon St. 214-965-9027. www.samuellynne.com). Original paintings, drawings, and limited-edition prints will be on display. (Sep 12. 5-8 p.m.; Sep 13. 1-4 p.m.)
