Looking Back at 25 Years of Dallas Art: Valley House’s Kevin Vogel Speaks About DADA

This weekend the Dallas Art Dealers Association celebrates its 25th anniversary. The Valley House Gallery’s Kevin Vogel has been a leader in the organization since it was founded in 1985. We sat down with Vogel and asked him about the changes in the North Texas art scene in the past two-and-a-half decades. Here are his thoughts:

How Will the New Club Dada Balance the Old Feel With The New Deep Ellum?

Club Dada is reopening. You’ve read that before and it is true again. City Tavern’s owner, Joshua Florence, is reopening the fabled bar/venue and is positively giddy about it, despite all the extra work it entails. “I’m stoked about Club Dada,” says Florence said. “You’re not going to find me complaining.” Armed with the same business savvy that has made City Tavern a success and a sober caution that respects both the area and the difficulties of doing business in it, Florence is doing his best to ensure that his Deep Ellum venture will be one with longevity.

Actors Randy Moore, Stephen Walters Carry Dallas Theater Center’s Enjoyable Henry IV

The Dallas Theater Center’s production of Henry IV offers some great acting, effective staging, compelling action sequences, and a generous dollop of laughter, but its real accomplishment is just how ably the two plays that make up Shakespeare’s two-part history about the rise of Henry V have been distilled into a single work. Henry IV was the most popular of Shakespeare's plays during his own lifetime, so much so that the bard wrote a sequel to the initial work. The first play culminates with Henry IV’s son Hal (the future Henry V) killing the revolutionary leader (and Hal’s peer) Hotspur in battle. The second part sees Hal rising to the throne after the death of his father, and both plays are, in part, concerned with the unorthodox education of the future king. At the play’s opening, he is a philanderer and a drunk, abandoning the royal court for the taverns of London, where he indulges in a smattering of pleasures along with other wayward sons of rich nobleman, poor louts, and loose women. This setting also provides Shakespeare with his most lovable character: Sir John Falstaff.
