Valley House Gallery & Sculpture Garden: Gail Norfleet: Made in Layers - Dallas (Thru Dec. 7)

Nov 2 2019 - 10:00am to Dec 7 2019 - 5:00pm
Valley House Gallery & Sculpture Garden
6616 Spring Valley Road
Dallas , TX

Plexiglass continues to be a foundational element in Gail Norfleet's work. The clear material is the surface upon which she applies paint and collage, and its inherent transparency allows light to illuminate multiple layers. Working on the front and back, and on two panels, creates a real space. In this exhibition, Norfleet places familiar still life subjects (flowers, vases, birds) in front of brightly rendered landscapes and surreal interiors. The subjects originating from life are playfully manipulated into impossible yet compelling compositions.

Artist Talk: Nov. 16 at 11 a.m.

Audubon Dallas: Whooping Cranes, Saving a Texas Icon - Dallas

Nov 14 2019 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm
CC Young
4847 W Lawther Dr, Ste 100
Dallas , TX

Whooping Cranes are North America’s tallest birds, and one of our most endangered. By the mid-90’s their population plummeted to a low of only 15 birds, due to habitat loss and over-hunting. Thanks to conservation efforts, over 500 birds persist in the wild today. The Texas Gulf Coast is the winter home to Cranes who return to the same nesting areas and mate for life.

Learn about the new Whooping Crane Center of Texas, a 5-acre breed-and-release conservation facility designed with help from Crane experts and staffed by the Dallas Zoo’s experienced bird department.
