I have an ambitious day planned and beautiful Dallas weather. I can only hope to accomplish half of what I want to see and do. My stops include Asel Art Supply, Dallas Museum of Art, Nasher Sculpture Center, Crow Collection of Asian Art and the Meadows Museum. I also have several temptations that I’m sure will lead me astray.
First things first, I want to stop at the Asel Art Supply on Cedar Springs Road. This is the largest Asels in the area. I want to check out their book binding supplies. I hope they have what I need.
My second stop will be the Dallas Arts District. I want to see the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art before it gets really crazy for its closing weekend. The Nasher Sculpture Center should be doing Target First Saturday with free admission and a new exhibit, Elliott Hundley: The Bacchae. While I’m in the area, who can resist a quick visit to the Crow Collection of Asian Art.
The third leg of my journey is the Meadows Museum on the campus of Southern Methodist University. One of our art reporters attended the press preview for The Invention of Glory: Alfonso V and the Pastrana Tapestries and said it was a sight to see.
Now, I could easily get sidetracked by any of the following:
- Open House Celebration of Artful Mayhem Studio from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
- Flea Harvey’s, the February Edition from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- Incrementum II – Alley’s House 8th Annual Art Auction from 7 to 11 p.m.
- El Corazone Art Exhibition at the Bath House Cultural Center from 7 to 9 p.m.
Wish me luck. I’ll let you know if I see any thing interesting. Cheers.
