Irene Sheri, The Two, oil on canvas, 36″ x 48″ There’s a lot to be said about southwest gallery. It’s been a staple in the Dallas art world for more than 50 years, it represents more than 100 artists from around the world, and it offers everything from framing and restoration to home design consultations. And looking at the walls of this lauded gallery, it’s clear that it is not a southwestern art gallery. The name is a reference to the region, not the art style, after all. “We do the whole cross section, from contemporary to traditional, western, impressionism, antique paintings, Russian pain ..read more

Some might argue you can never have enough of a good thing. But when interior designer Monica Wilcox found herself with four storage units full of high-end furnishings, she knew something had to give. “Being in this business for 27 years, I have so many accounts with so many vendors, and most of them require you order multiples of items to get wholesale pricing,” she explains. Wilcox sometimes planned to incorporate the wares into design concepts for other clients, then would forget what she had on hand and purchase new products instead. After amassing a bounty of beautiful inventory, opening ..read more

Walking into an art gallery is an immersive experience that inspires creativity. Imagine a shopping experience based on the same concept. That’s the feeling store manager Bryce Smith had in mind when he was given free rein to redesign RenCollection’s to-the-trade showroom in the Dallas Design District. “We removed all of the dividing walls of what was once a furniture showroom and opened up the space so that it has lots of good energy and light coming in. I was given full responsibility to implement what I saw in my head,” Smith says, referencing the three showrooms of rugs and furniture that ..read more

RADIANT SPACES

Every piece of art is meant to evoke emotion. Whether created with paint on canvas or molded from metal or clay, art exists to engage the senses. Yet there is something uniquely captivating about glass. Even after a piece of glass art is finished, it is continually changing, reflecting shifting patterns of light and revealing hidden textures and prisms of color. Glasswork interacts not only with the viewer but with the environment in which it lives. “Glass as a material, to me, is spiritual. It’s scientific. It’s a wonder,” says artist Carlyn Ray, owner of Dallas Glass Art and Carlyn Ray Desi ..read more

Randy Groden, Verona, oil on canvas, 72″ x 48″ Working at her jeweler’s bench, Jill Sertsoz is pouring her anguish and hurt over the struggles of the Ukrainian people into a piece of hand-forged sterling silver. As she grinds at the distressed stripes of blue and yellow enamel, she’s unsure if it should look less blemished. After discussing it with her colleague, artist Randy Groden, she realizes it is just what the piece needs. “They still have their pride; they still have their unity; they’re standing up in the face of tremendous odds, but they’re not pristine,” she explains. “That inspired ..read more

Experience Space From Within #3, oil on canvas, 60″ x 48″ “Why the hearts?” It was a question a New York City reporter asked Nita Patel during her first interview. In her collection of mixed-media work, swaths of acrylic are overlaid with a single heart. One is made from an outline of raw sapphires, another is filled with amazonite, and there are pink opals in another piece. “I realized that I had created hearts to heal my own heart, and that’s when I realized I could use art to help others heal as well,” Patel explains. A self-taught painter, she’s come a long way from the mixed-media works t ..read more

For two long years, the famous antiques markets and fairs across France were all but dormant. In the wake of worldwide travel restrictions and quarantines enacted at the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak, seasoned dealers had limited access to the historic treasures hidden away in galleries, showrooms and warehouses overseas. But 2022 has been different. “It really opened up for dealers to come back to buy this past April,” says Bruno de la Croix-Vaubois, owner of Country French Interiors in the Dallas Design District. Although he made a couple of short buying trips last year, thanks to his dual ..read more
