Rusiloski: Majestic Space & Ronald Watson: Voyage open May 10 at Artspace111

Join us for Two New Exhibitions at Artspace111 on Thursday May 10, 2018 5 – 8pm

 

Artspace111 | 111 Hampton St, Fort Worth, TX 76102

Open | Tuesday – Friday 10am – 5pm
Saturday 10am – 3pm

MAJESTIC SPACE
Winter Rusiloski
Images | Detail, Aurora’s Return
Image | Sail Complex, 2017, Oil on canvas, 48 x 60”
Exhibition Statement | “These dynamic surfaces are epic journeys through majestic spaces. Each voyage is signified by endless horizons intersected by lightening marks, passages of eternity balanced by ephemeral moments of present, near space reaching toward vast distances, palpable surface textures dissolving in and out of ethereal mists. Every canvas is a poesis of mark making that draws from the primordial smudges found on a cave wall to pieces of the moment here, right now, and all that moves in between.“ Full statement available on Artspace111.com
“This study was supported in part by an Allbritton Art Institute Grant for Art Faculty Scholarship, BaylorUniversity.”

VOYAGE
Ronald Watson
Image | Departure, 2014, Painted plywood, 55.75 x 55.25 x 4
Exhibition Statement | “When I touch joining planes in my sculpture I feel the trueness of the angle and the completeness of the intersection. I am drawn to systems of structure and I enjoy building webs, lattices and grids that float in space. They are personal labyrinths and I see them as networks of possibilities. My works allow the viewer to consider them as things in the world and as worlds within themselves.” Full curatorial statement by Jim Woodson available on Artspace111.com.
Update:

It is with our deepest sorrow that we inform you of Ron Watson’s passing,
His solo exhibition, Voyage, will proceed as planned from May 10 – June 16, with an opening reception on Thursday, May 10, from 5 – 8pm. We will post details about the memorial service on our Facebook page when available. We hope that you will join us to celebrate the life of this gifted artist.

On Creativity…
When Mayor Mike Rawlings came to tour CAC several years ago he dubbed CAC, “a place for the citizen artist”.  We can’t think of anyone more deserving of this title, citizen artist, than Rob Pollock, a long-time CAC student, who will be honored in the exhibition From Nine to Ninety:  A Retrospective of the Sculpture of Robert Pollock on view April 2 through June 17 at the Moody Performance Hall in the Dallas Arts District.
Although Pollock is not keen on describing himself as an artist, the nonagenarian has been creating art since he was nine years old!  His artistic journey began in Dallas, Texas where as a young boy he worked in copper and pewter, learning to cut, shape with a hammer and soldering pieces, such as ash trays and matchbox covers.  Whether it’s printmaking, clay sculpture, jewelry making, wood or stone carving, Pollock is like many students at CAC – a lifelong learner who continuously explores the creative process across different mediums.
In addition to studying under CAC’s founder, Octavio Medellin, Rob spent several decades studying stone sculpture under artists Jewel Cline, David Hickman and Art Wells. It was at CAC that he hand-carved his first piece of Italian marble – a piece he obtained from a pile of marble remnants by a local landscape architect.  In addition to sculpting at CAC, he spent a month each summer in Pietrasanta, Italy, for the next 20 years.
David Hickman, who also studied under Medellin and taught at CAC for several years, says that Pollock was tremendously influenced by Medellin’s focus on primitive modernism.  “Most of Rob’s stone sculpture is done in white Carrara marble and comes from the same quarries near Pietrasanta where Michelangelo obtained his marble,” says Hickman.  “Rob does not just carve the marble, he honors it by leaving small sections either untouched or carved so that natural stone contrasts with the polished portions in an organic way like an ammonite fossil.”
Sculptures from the 19-piece collection will be for sale once the exhibition ends (four pieces have already sold through word of mouth alone raising significant funds for CAC!).  Launching in celebration of Dallas Arts Month, our partnership with the Moody Performance Hall and the Office of Cultural Affairs showcases this collection and will bring a much wider audience to view Rob’s work. There will be a public artist reception honoring this life-long learner on Sunday, June 3 from 3 to 5pm.  Symbiotically, the Performance Hall features a permanent installation of Medellin’s work.

MEADOWS MUSEUM CATALOGUES ITS MODERN SCULPTURE COLLECTION

 

Book Launch March 23 Features Author Dr. Steven Nash and Photographer Laura Wilson

 

Dallas, TX—March 19, 2018—The Meadows Museum, SMU, announces the publication of From Rodin to Plensa: Modern Sculpture at the Meadows Museum in association with Scala Arts Publishers. Featuring a scholarly essay and catalogue entries by Dr. Steven A. Nash, former director of the Palm Springs Art Museum and founding director of the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, and photographs by noted Dallas photographer Laura Wilson, this is the first publication by the Meadows Museum to exclusively highlight the Museum’s impressive collection of modern sculpture. The book will launch with a double-lecture and book-signing event at 6:00 p.m. on March 22, 2018, during which Nash and Wilson will discuss their contributions to this unique publication. Advance reservations for the event are required at 214-768-8587.

 

The beautifully designed 176-page volume contains nearly 100 full-color images; Wilson’s photographs make one feel close enough to touch the sculptures, revealing aspects the casual observer might not see such as the marks, imprints and signatures made by the artists. Over 30 historical black-and-white images are also included, giving readers behind-the-scenes looks at the creation of Santiago Calatrava’s Wave (2002) and George Rickey’s Two Open Rectangles Horizontal (1983–1984); details about the 2009 re-design of the plaza; and the installations of selected works. Nash’s research tells for the first time the rich story of this important part of the Meadows’s collection and serves as a fitting tribute to Elizabeth Meadows, the inspiration for Algur Meadows’s original donation of a sculpture garden.

 

Said Mark A. Roglán, The Linda P. and William A. Custard Director of the Meadows Museum and Centennial Chair in the Meadows School of the Arts, “It is our hope that, thanks to this volume, people learn more about the artistic richness of modern sculpture at the Meadows Museum and come discover the beauty that these works infuse in our galleries and outside spaces.”

 

In celebration of the book’s publication, from June 24 through August 5, the Meadows Museum will be exhibiting much of its sculpture collection, including some works that have not been on display for some time, including Pablo Picasso’s Owl (Hibou) (1955) and Face and Owl (Visage et Hibou) (1958); Dynamic Angle (Angulo dinámico) (1976) by Helen Escobedo; and Aeróvoro (c. 1979) by Martín Chirino. Another sculpture that will go on view is a rare, previously unpublished work from John Chamberlain’s Penthouse series, Untitled (1969), which appears in the book as part of an appendix that features modern sculpture highlights from SMU’s University Art Collection.

 

Books can be purchased in the Meadows Museum Shop, pre-purchased by phone while registering for the event, or purchased on the night of the event ($55).

 

About the Meadows Museum

The Meadows Museum is the leading U.S. institution focused on the study and presentation of the art of Spain. In 1962, Dallas businessman and philanthropist Algur H. Meadows donated his private collection of Spanish paintings, as well as funds to start a museum, to Southern Methodist University. The Museum opened to the public in 1965, marking the first step in fulfilling Meadows’s vision to create “a small Prado for Texas.”

 

Today, the Meadows is home to one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of Spanish art outside of Spain. The collection spans from the 10th to the 21st centuries and includes medieval objects, Renaissance and Baroque sculptures, and major paintings by Golden Age and modern masters. Since 2010 the Museum has been engaged in a multidimensional partnership with the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid, which has included the exchange of scholarship, exhibitions, works of art and other resources.

José Ignacio Alvarado: Venezuelan Sculptor exhibit opens March 17 at Frisco Fine Art

Frisco Fine Art is excited to bring the work of Venezuelan sculptor José Ignacio Alvarado to North Texas. Please join us for an opening reception and to meet the artist on Saturday, March 17, from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m.

Alvarado, an architect and designer, was born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1951. Throughout his distinguished career, he has been a university professor, the author of Arquitectura para todos (Architecture for All), a columnist at Diario Los Andes and a critic for Artefacto magazine. He has also taken part in ecological projects for zoos and botanical gardens.

Alvarado creates his sculptures out of metal ribbon, incorporating the space around the sculpture into the piece. The dance of the ribbon in the air creates a flowing figure which, when combined with color, results in a spiritual response from the viewer.

“Throughout my career as an architect, I satisfied people´s need for functionality. However, I have come to understand that mankind also needs to feel spiritual satisfaction, which has to be sought. This search is the focus of my work.”

Alvarado´s artwork has been exhibited in the U.S., Venezuela and Aruba.

First Exhibition to Explore Eduardo Chillida’s Multitude of Media to Open at the Meadows Museum

Related Show Highlights Chillida’s Connections to Dallas

Dallas, TX – February 1, 2018 – This spring, the Meadows Museum will present Dallas’s first exhibition dedicated exclusively to the work of Eduardo Chillida (1924–2002). Chillida, one of Spain’s most celebrated modern sculptors, is famous for his monumental iron and stone sculptures that shape both urban and rural landscapes. This exhibition includes 66 of the artist’s works, from his sculptures, to his drawings, collages, gravitations, graphic works, and a selection of his books. Co-curated by William Jeffett, chief curator of exhibitions for The Dalí Museum, and Ignacio Chillida, the artist’s son, the works in Memory, Mind, Matter: The Sculpture of Eduardo Chillida come exclusively from the Museo Chillida-Leku in Hernani (San Sebastián, Spain); the exhibition travels to Dallas from the Salvador Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida. A complimentary exhibition, Chillida in Dallas: De Musica at the Meyerson, is curated by Meadows/Mellon/Prado Curatorial Fellow Amanda W. Dotseth and will focus on the landmark commission by Chillida at Dallas’s Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center. The two exhibitions will open on February 4, 2018, and run through June 3.

Memory, Mind, Matter: The Sculpture of Eduardo Chillida focuses on the mature part of Chillida’s career, when he produced works such as Peine del Viento XV (Wind Comb) in 1976 and Elogio del Horizonte (Eulogy to the Horizon) in 1990, while also presenting important, rarely displayed works. The exhibition addresses the artist’s interest in space and form, which is anchored to the human body and to organic elements found in nature. His works express both the power of nature and humanity’s physical strength. Instead of seeing his works as abstract—an idea Chillida rejected—the exhibition demonstrates his connection to the pre-war avant-garde’s interest in human subjectivity and its poetic notions of form. The exhibition also includes a reflection on the artist’s engagement with poetry and philosophy in his artists’ books, and his admiration for writers of the period.

 

Chillida is also celebrated for the variety of media used in his works, including iron, stone, ceramic, alabaster and paper. His iron and steel sculptures are made of solid metal, while his alabaster works are made from a single piece of stone. His works on paper, known as gravitations, include the layering of pages to create a collage, creating an effect of shadows, weight and tension between the paper. Additionally, the pieces of paper are stitched together, which creates a contrast of negative and positive space in the cut outs. In connection to his Basque roots, Chillida’s works evoke interlocking fingers, arms and hands. He saw hands as an instrument for interaction with the earth: they are how the artist holds and shapes his materials. Eduardo Chillida’s use of natural forms in connection with the Basque country is best described in the artist’s own words: “In my Basque Country I feel at home, like a tree that is adapted to its territory, rooted in its earth but with its arms open to the world.”

 

“Eduardo Chillida is well-known to our community, by sight if not by name, as Dallas is fortunate to be home to one of his most important public sculptures,” said Mark Roglán, the Linda P. and William A. Custard Director of the Meadows Museum. “This exhibition shows Chillida’s different sides through his visionary use of materials, from the power of stone to the lightness of paper. We are thrilled to bring these works to Dallas and expand our understanding of one of the most important and influential modern Spanish sculptors.”

 

Chillida in Dallas: De música at the Meyerson, explores the monumental sculpture located in front of the Morton H. Myerson Symphony Center in Dallas. Chillida was selected for the commission by the Dallas Symphony Foundation Arts Committee, in close consultation with architect and Committee member I.M. Pei. What resulted was the impressive De música, Dallas XV (On Music, Dallas XV), which contains two imposing 15-foot-high cylinders of more than 3 feet in diameter, with commanding and elegant arm-like extensions. The work embodies Chillida’s artistic philosophy, his interest in Saint Augustine (after whose treatise on music the sculpture is named), and in the mystical number three. De música is the only public work by Chillida on display in Dallas and represents a dialogue between Chillida and architect I. M. Pei, who designed the Symphony Center’s glass and granite building.

 

Memory, Mind, Matter: The Sculpture of Eduardo Chillida will be accompanied by a catalogue with full color illustrations of the 66 works by Eduardo Chillida in the exhibition, along with an introduction by the artist’s son Ignacio Chillida, and essays by Hank Hine (Director of The Dalí Museum), Nausica Sanchez (Fundación Eduardo Chillida-Pilar Belzunce), and William Jeffett. The catalogue includes the artist’s biography, use of media, distinctive motifs, and artists’ books.

 

Chillida-related educational programming for the spring will include:

Scott Winterrowd, director of education, Meadows Museum

 

Born in San Sebastián, Spain, in the Basque region, Eduardo Chillida’s works are international, located in Spain, Europe, and the Americas. Throughout his career, Chillida debuted exhibitions at The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Museum of Modern Art in New York, including retrospectives at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (1966), and the Carnegie Institute in Pittsburgh (1979). He received several awards, including the Graham Foundation Award for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, the International Grand Prize for Sculpture at the Venice Biennale, both in 1958; the Kandinsky Prize in 1960; and the Carnegie Prize in 1964 and in 1979, shared with painter Willem de Kooning.

 

This exhibition is co-organized by The Dalí Museum and Fundación Eduardo Chillida–Pilar Belzunce, in collaboration with the Meadows Museum, SMU, Dallas. Additional support for the Meadows Museum’s presentation is generously provided by The Meadows Foundation.

 

About the Fundación Eduardo Chillida–Pilar Belzunce

All works presented in Memory, Mind, Matter: The Sculpture of Eduardo Chillida have been graciously loaned by the Fundación Eduardo Chillida–Pilar Belzunce. The foundation was created in 2000 and is based in Hernani, Spain. The foundation was formed with the purpose to “deepen the knowledge of the artistic work of Mr. Eduardo Chillida Juantegui, promoting its knowledge and dissemination.” The foundation is connected with the Museo Chillida-Leku which opened in 2000. The museum showcases the largest collection of Eduardo Chillida’s work and provides an intimate space for visitors to enjoy the works of this great, modern sculptor.

 

About the Meadows Museum

The Meadows Museum is the leading U.S. institution focused on the study and presentation of the art of Spain. In 1962, Dallas businessman and philanthropist Algur H. Meadows donated his private collection of Spanish paintings, as well as funds to start a museum, to Southern Methodist University. The museum opened to the public in 1965, marking the first step in fulfilling Meadows’s vision to create “a small Prado for Texas.”

 

Today, the Meadows is home to one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of Spanish art outside Spain. The collection spans from the 10th to the 21st centuries and includes medieval objects, Renaissance and Baroque sculptures, and major paintings by Golden Age and modern masters. Since 2010 the museum has been engaged in a multidimensional partnership with the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid, which has included the exchange of scholarship, exhibitions, works of art, and other resources.

Opening Sat., Nov. 4 at Ro2 Art | Joshua Goode: Pegasus Armor + Erika Duque: Paraíso

Joshua Goode
Pegasus Armor

November 4 – December 2

Opening Reception:
Saturday, November 4, 7-10 pm

Ro2 Art is pleased to present ‘Pegasus Armor,’ a solo exhibition featuring new works by Dallas artist Joshua Goode. The show will run from November 4 through December 2, 2017. There will be an opening reception held Saturday, November 4, from 7-10 p.m. at Ro2 Art, located at 1501 S. Ervay Street in Dallas’ Cedars neighborhood.

As an artist, Joshua Goode fabricates convincing archaeological evidence to support the existence of the imaginary Aurora-Rhoman civilization, preserving his childhood memories in the guise of ancient artifacts. This personal mythology is bolstered by Goode’s staged archaeological digs, which allow the artist to adopt and distort both the historical and mythological aspects of various regions around the world. Inspired by amateur archaeologists such as Heinrich Schliemann who discovered Troy, and by past elaborate hoaxes like that of the Piltdown Man, Goode uses his “discoveries” to manipulate and verify his invented civilization.

About the artist


Erika Duque
Paraíso

November 4 – December 2

Opening Reception:
Saturday, November 4, 7-10 pm

Paraiso reflects on artist Erika Duque’s recent trip to Tulum, Mexico and the lush jungles and vegetation that she saw during her time there. Paraiso translates to paradise in Spanish and Duque’s paintings reflect the tropical paradise of her trip with bright vibrant colors of orange and reds as well as sharp verdant greens. Duque painted with a specific color palette and looser strokes in order to intensify the dream like qualities of the subject matter and take the viewer to a pleasurable worry free locale. For Duque, the paintings in Paraiso reflect both memories and pleasure.

1st Annual Keller Art Walk call for artists

Arts take center stage in new Keller festival

A new family-friendly festival celebrating the arts is coming to Old Town Keller thanks to a partnership between the city’s Public Arts Board and the local nonprofit Keller Public Arts Society.

Keller, TX – The first annual Keller Art Walk, scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 14 from 3 to 8 pm, will honor the artists selected for the city’s new rotating art program and celebrate the recently completed improvements in Old Town Keller.

Location: Old Town Keller West

Earlier this year, the Arts Board initiated the inaugural phase of a rotating art-on-loan program to fill the sculpture pads added during the city’s recent updates to Old Town Keller West. The pads are located along the strolling promenade that runs north-south adjacent to the eclectic restaurants and small businesses in the area.

For Phase I of the program, the Arts Board selected five sculptures for a two-year exhibit; in 2018, they will select and install six additional pieces, also for a two-year exhibit. The staggered phases will bring new pieces to Old Town each year, providing a dynamic and engaging attraction that will help draw interest and foot traffic to the area.

The Keller Art Walk will be a community event with a unique, strolling atmosphere aimed at showcasing the arts in Keller. Patrons will have the opportunity to meet the artists whose work is on display in Old Town and watch plein-aire, or outdoor, artists create captivating paintings along the promenade. Student musicians from Keller ISD and a variety of local vendors and professional entertainers will also be featured throughout the event.

Sponsorships and vendor spots are still available. Applications can be found at www.cityofkeller.com/artwalk. For more information, call 817-743-4000 or email publicarts@cityofkeller.com.

Samuel Lynne Galleries To Represent Internationally Acclaimed Artist, Metis Atash

Screen Shot 2017-04-20 at 1.02.01 PM

Samuel Lynne Galleries is pleased to announce our exclusive Texas representation of Miami-based fine art sculptor, Metis Atash. Atash’s creations combine conceptual, minimalist, and pop art traditions. Her devotion for art, design, and fashion is apparent in her one-of-a-kind sculptures that award their living spaces with an aura of captivating experience. The gallery will present a showcase of her stunning “Punk Buddha” series in an exhibition titled “Buddha Goes Punk”. The artist will be in attendance at the exhibition, which will be on view from May 13, 2017 through June 24, 2017.

Born and raised in Munich, Metis Atash is German by nationality, but truly a citizen of the world. Her vast global travels led her to the Indonesian Island of Bali, where the lifestyle, culture, and philosophies quickly resonated with her, and eventually became the trajectory for her artistic style and her purpose as an artist. Bali is a place where love is the only energy to be found, and the location has appropriately become the source of inspiration for her “Punk Buddha” pieces. These unique sculptures are a fusion of worldly pleasures and spiritual insights, which have come to redefine the meaning of living. The sculptural figures radiate a presence far greater than their child-like size, due to their sparkling materiality and strong totemic essence.

Samuel Lynne Galleries will showcase Atash’s signature series of “Punk Buddha” sculptures that have gained widespread popularity around the world. Sculpted in fiberglass, covered with acrylic paint, and meticulously bathed by hand in upwards of 20,000 Swarovski crystals, this collection embodies the artist’s life journey, and her associations to Daoism. All her pieces are subject to a multi-step process of clay modeling, molding, sculpting, sanding, and lacquering. The objects of her work are based on the spiritual being, and these Buddha sculptures are inspired by ancient Daoist teachings. “Dao” translates to “path” or “way of life” and Atash has ensured that her creations reflect this property. They are also a reflection of her respect for Haute Couture, as well as contemporary art history. Each “Punk Buddha” is named for an iconic figure in fashion and art – from Basquiat to Balmain, Warhol to Hermes, Kusama to Chanel. With their dazzling exteriors, each resting figure is aimed to be perceived as the mirror of our eternal souls. They are a reflection of the relationship between humanity and the cosmos, health and longevity, action through inaction, and they represent the duality of life – the spiritual and the physical of our beings that produce harmony within the universe.

Atash’s entrepreneurial spirit has lead to the rise of her work around the globe. Her artwork has been exhibited in select galleries throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe, and has been featured in important international magazine publications such as Vogue, Elle Decor, Architectural Digest, and Haute Living.

Sculpture by Nathan Mabry launches Public Art Program at Victory Park

VICTORY PARK LAUNCHES PUBLIC ART PROGRAM

Sculpture by Nathan Mabry is the first of several public art pieces to be unveiled over the coming months

DALLAS (March 27, 2017) – Victory Park is putting the “V” in Victory with the unveiling of the first work in its new public art program: an eight-foot hand in the “V-sign” gesture. The steel sculpture, titled Heavy Handed (Symbol), is the latest work in California-based artist Nathan Mabry’s Heavy Handed series.

The work was commissioned as part of the district transformation efforts focused on evolving Victory Park into a more authentic, walkable and soulful urban neighborhood. Owners Estein USA and retail partner Trademark Property Co. selected the work for its historic symbolism as a gesture of solidarity, victory, and peace used by figures like Winston Churchill, and more recently, even Siri.

“The V-sign is an unmistakable gesture with a common understanding that spans generations and an important, sustainable message that we are proud to spread. Its meaning has evolved throughout history, just as Victory Park is doing, making it the perfect piece to launch our public art program,” said Terry Montesi, CEO, Trademark Property Co. “Embracing public art and the impact it can have on a space is a major initiative in our efforts to create a more vibrant, soulful Victory Park. By bringing creative, relevant public art to the district, we hope to enhance the emotional connection with the community and make Victory Park one of Dallas’ most interesting destinations.”

The sculpture, now perched at the intersection of Victory Park Lane and Olive Street, was completed in four months and is the 10th Heavy Handed work. Mabry’s Heavy Handed series launched in 2012 and includes similar corten steel hand sculptures, each of which is a different, often universally recognized, gesture, ranging from playful, like “fingers crossed,” to contemplative, like hands in a prayer-like position.

“The Heavy Handed works pay homage to minimalist and industrial sculptors like Tony Smith or Richard Serra,” said Mabry. “However, upon further inspection, these sculptures reveal themselves as symbolic hand gestures. This particular work references the very site it sits on, Victory Park.”

Victory Park’s Heavy Handed sculpture is Mabry’s first public installation in Dallas. He was also the subject of a solo exhibition at the Nasher Sculpture Center in 2013.

Heavy Handed is the first piece in a series of public art installations planned for Victory Park.  A large sculpture by Las Vegas artist Tim Bavington is set to be installed in spring 2017 near the W Dallas – Victory Hotel, followed by additional works by local and national artists to be announced in the coming months.

Visitors to Victory Park will already see some of the results of district transformation efforts, which include 85,000 square feet of new retail space, reworked streetscapes, sidewalks and storefronts, district identity markers, wayfinding elements, public space amenities, two-way traffic on Houston Street and Victory Avenue, and a dedicated bike lane extending the Katy Trail. Additional parking and valet options, as well as lighting and technology upgrades will also roll out in 2017.

As part of the redevelopment, Victory is also undergoing a full remerchandising to include Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas – Victory Park, a collection of best-in-class local food and beverage operators, and select local and national retailers.

Earlier this month, Victory Park announced that three of Dallas’ top food and beverage operators all will open concepts at the mixed-used district later this year: This & That Concepts, the team behind High Fives, So & So’s and The Standard Pour, will open a restaurant and bar; Elias Pope’s company, 8020 Hospitality, which is responsible for HG Sply. Co., is teaming up with Brooke Humphries, the mind behind Barcadia, Beauty Bar, Mudsmith, It’ll Do Club, and Pints & Quarts, to open a 24,000-square-foot restaurant and entertainment concept in Victory Plaza; and Brooke Humphries will also open a bar and tavern in an out-of-the-box location inside the parking garage on Victory Avenue.

Other 2017 openings include Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas – Victory Park and three unique concepts by Dallas entrepreneur Tristan Simon’s new venture, Rebees, including a modern Texas saloon, a retail emporium showcasing local artists and makers, and a creative workspace with a seasonally-minded, day-focused café. In addition, The 23, a new 285-unit mixed-use apartment community by LMC, will begin preleasing late this spring with move-ins beginning in August.
