Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
This week is the Dallas Art Fair, and the launch of the 2017 edition of Whitewaller Dallas. We’re there to guide you through the must-see and be-seen-at spots around town as well as the top exhibitions, restaurants, shops, and more to check out. This week we’ll share the “Insider Tips” from those in-the-know on what to see, do, and consume in Dallas during the fair. Next up is Rob Teeters, Artistic Director of The Power Station.
WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
Mia’s Tex-Mex is always on point. I take most artists we do shows with here and they all love it, especially the Europeans. Don’t miss the brisket tacos. Double Wide is a great dive bar near The Power Station that we hit after our openings. You’ll recognize it by the whirling tornado on top of the building.
WHERE TO SEE ART
AND NOW is a great gallery run by James Cope. He shows local hero Jeff Zilm, who has recently become internationally recognized by showing with Simon Lee Gallery in London. The Warehouse, initiated by Howard Rachofsky and the late Vernon Faulconer, is an incredible contribution to the Dallas landscape. They mount museum-quality exhibitions pulling primarily from The Rachofsky Collection. Culture Hole is an underground project space located within the walls of The Power Station in a modest hole under the ground floor of the space. The project is programmed by Jeff Gibbons, Gregory Ruppe, and Avi Varma, who host one-night-only exhibitions.
WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
The community here is very hospitable, so it’s nice to relax in private homes in Dallas for dinner and drinks.
