Four courses, four galleries and plenty to chew on—how could I turn down that invitation? Last Friday I attended the unique Moveable Feast with other Board Members from the Dallas Contemporary—a special invitation to view new exhibitions at these fine galleries—a day prior to their opening.
The brain child of Conduit Gallery owner Nancy Whitenack—rallied up local gallerists Cris Worley, Missy Finger and Holly Johnson, to share an intimate gathering with exhibition artists.
First Course: Conduit Gallery + FT33. Nancy Whitenack served up the first course with FT33, a new restaurant due to open in the Design District this fall, needless to say, the hors d’oeuvre was delicious. Two new exhibitions are open for only a month, and both artist Susan and Mimi shared insight into their inspiration. Both complementary and juxtaposed—one conjured from thoughts of dreams, the other taken from the elements of everyday life in Japan.
Worthy of some whimsy, view Susan Kae Grant: Theatrical Realms of the Whimsical & Tragic, and snap back to reality with Mimi Kato: One Ordinary Day of an Ordinary Town. Open September 8 — October 6, 2012. Conduit Gallery: 1626 Hi Line Dr. #C, visit: Conduit Gallery.
