Dallas Design District Gallery, Laura Rathe Fine Art, announces a solo exhibition I AM THE SUN, featuring new works by renowned artist, Meredith Pardue. The opening days will take place on Friday, May 14th and Saturday, May 15th. The artist will be in attendance on Saturday, May 15th from 1-4pm. Appointments are recommended.
Meredith Pardue’s solo exhibition I AM THE SUN, is rooted in humankind’s relationship with the sun, and the inherent mystery and rituals this rapport has inspired throughout human history. Pardue’s palette ranges from explosive saturation to moody and dark monochromes. The mark making of this body of work spans from brushwork reminiscent of mid-century abstract expressionists to raw, primitive strokes. The exhibition also includes compositions with pod like forms that seem to undulate around, within, and beyond the parameters of the canvas in what has become Pardue’s signature aesthetic over the last decade.
This holiday season, everyone will be looking for fun, safe activities to enjoy with their loved ones. Sure, you’ve got the classics like a good holiday movie or some socially-distanced caroling. But this year, make a new tradition with Tinsel, a drive-through immersive holiday art experience.
This all-original artistic event is free to attend and will take place on Friday, December 18 and Saturday, December 19 from 6:30 – 10 p.m. It will highlight the creativity and culture of West Dallas, including the Tin District and Fabrication Yard communities, where some of the city’s best art comes to life. The two-night event celebrates the holidays in an artistic, authentic and engaging way. It goes beyond your typical evening of looking at holiday lights and instead brings together original art, technology and music into one cohesive experience you won’t soon forget.
We have maintained CraveDFW for quite a few years now, and have enjoyed serving the Dallas restaurant community on a small budget. We have written thousands of articles with millions of views. Many of the articles I have written myself, but we have encouraged the community to publish articles as well. We particularly love it when a chef, a bartender, a winemaker or another expert shares their expertise, and we have actively promoted those articles. Continue reading →

She incorporates various materials in her work, including precious metals, such as 22k Gold, palladium, and bronze, which add depth and illuminate each individual vessel. Waggoner harmonizes organic forms and geometric patterns to create compelling compositions that distinctly transform any space. Continue reading →
