DALLAS ARTIST TO WATCH

Michelle Rawlings—yes, the mayor’s daughter—is an increasingly interesting artist. Her shows often tell a story and link back to her childhood. Her current show is on view at And Now [through October 13].”
And Now // 150 Manufacturing St., Dallas // 214/205-9909

WHERE TO BUY ART

“Dallas has some wonderful galleries and making frequent visits will keep you in the know. Some of my favorites are: Conduit Gallery, Cris Worley Fine Arts, Liliana Bloch and Erin Cluley Gallery.”
Conduit Gallery // 1626C Hi Line Drive, Dallas // 214/239-0064 
Cris Worley Fine Arts // 1845 Levee St., Suite 110, Dallas // 214/745-1415 
Liliana Bloch Gallery // 2271 Monitor St., Dallas // 214/991-5617
Erin Cluley Gallery // 414 Fabrication St., Dallas // 214/760-1155

BEST UNDER-THE-RADAR ART DESTINATION

“The Culture Hole is literally underground. Each exhibition has a short life span—usually just one night. If you can make it, the kids will love climbing down in the Culture Hole.”

TIPS FOR PURCHASING ART

“Purchase art that resonates with you. You should always research the artist and familiarize yourself with their career. Mark your calendar for the 2019 Dallas Art Fair, April 11–14. It’s a great opportunity to expose yourself and your family to contemporary art. If you find a piece you can’t live without, act fast!”
