The September Run Up Part 1…

Like I said, galleries load it up for the fall. My favorite Brit, James Cope is serving up some real bangers and mash at the Mac with his show Blueline, while Dale Chihuly, the often imitated never duplicated, glass blower kicks off the fall at Dunn and Brown. Keep an eye out (pun intended), because this one opens on a THURSDAY. For all of you who love vintage technology, Dan McPharlin is holding it down in a huge way at Conduit, with his sculptures in the project room. Beloved Dallas artist Otis Jones is opening a solo show at Holly Johnson Gallery, while Howard Sherman (H-Town Represent) is gonna be sittn’ crooked in his slab at Pan American. Newly crowned MFA champ Sarah Williams steps into the ring for her solo heavyweight debut at Marty Walker Gallery, while wooden pixel pusher Shawn Smith sets it off at Craighead-Green. Head north for a walkie-talkie at Valley House Gallery and Sculpture Garden with Mary Vernon. And finally, in the immortal last words of Billy Batts in Goodfellas,”Go home and get your fu@#in’ shine box” because PDNB’s Burt Finger has laced up a collection of vintage shoeshine boxes coupled with photos from the 30s to the 70s of the entrepreneurs who used them. Part 2 is coming up next week so stay tuned in to find out what is happening in Deep Ellum and the O.C.
