Nathaniel Russell Opening on Saturday
Join us for Nathaniel Russell’s PEACE POEM exhibition. Opening is Friday, October 9, 9-11 p.m.
PEACE POEM is a collection of new work by Nathaniel Russell. The woodcuts, silkscreens, and drawings in the exhibit are banners for an imaginary parade, picket signs at a protest that hasn’t happened, signs for movies not made, books unwritten, and promotional posters for the present moment. This body of work continues an exploration of hope, connection, and being though simplicity, humor and the balance of dark and light.
Closed September 5 – 18

We love Heyd
The Wrong Store and Gallery will be showing a collection of work from Texas artist Heyd Fontenot. The opening is Friday, June 28, 6-9 p.m. at 110 W. Dallas.
The exhibit is a collection of recent works-on-paper and paintings from the artist. These figurative artworks are a utopian mediation. Avoiding professional models, the artist recruits his friends and artistic peers to model for him, over time building a comprehensive portrait of his social circles over the last two decades. Fontenot has often expressed his deep appreciation that people are willing to be a part of his studio practice as such and notes the impossibility of creating the body of work without this display of cooperation. He calls this work a collaboration between himself and his community.
Heyd Fontenot is director of CentralTrak, an international artists’ residency program and exhibition space located in Dallas, Texas.
Whatever medium he chooses, Fontenot usually revisits the themes of sexuality and morality producing joyful and playful works that nonetheless subtly undermine dominant cultural perceptions. In his own words, “If there is a radical nature to sexuality, it lies not in its ability to titillate, but rather in its inherent powers of spiritual transformation.”
Fontenot is an active exhibiting artist who is represented by Conduit Gallery in Dallas and by Inman Gallery in Houston. His work is included in the upcoming Texas Biennial Anniversary Exhibition in Aug/Sept of 2013, as a three-time Texas Biennial artist.
Yep. We were on 60 Minutes.

GIANT was filmed in Marfa, Texas in 1955. It’s only fitting we sell the Levi’s Vintage Collection 501 / 1955 model. This jean is the quintessential 1950’s shape and we can promise this: James Dean would approve.

The Turkeys and us.
The local celebrity Turkeys are in charge. Wish you could have seen the SUV driver going postal. He had a sense of humor failure.
