|the weekend ahead
by Todd Camplin
This is a great weekend for late night adventures. Aurora lights up the city Friday night
and I doubt I will get much sleep. Yet I still plan to get an early start on the galleries
opening on Saturday. Lots of great openings and I don’t plan to narrow them down
to just a few.

|offering. I have made it no secret that I am a big fan of Ted Larsen’s work. I make an effort to see
most of his shows in the DFW area, but I have been known to seek his work out across the state.
Lance Letscher’s cut outs are always enjoyable, but I am really excited to see what Lily Hanson
has going on in the Project Room. I can’t tell from the press images, but my interest has been
Cris Worley Fine Arts has the beautifully intricate drawings by Robert Lansder. To my joy, another
artist obsessed with fine line and details. I think there might be a real art movement evolving with
this breed of detail oriented work. Drawing has come to the forefront as a finished work, rather
than a sketch for a more ambitious painting or sculpture. Artists’ drawings are taking on an
ambition that precludes any need for further development. Lansder’s drawings contain these
qualities with the added benefit of being compelling as abstract images.
|Circuit 12 Contemporary has group artists concept show inspired by an art piece by Cy Twombly
titled Jupiter Island. Robert Andrade, Debra Barrera, William Binnie, Kayla Lewis, Soo Shin, Bryan

times in a gallery space, sculptural objects seem to float out in the middle of the floor, taking
space, and even feel other worldly. I look forward to interacting with these abstract objects. I
have a feeling the walls will not be neglected either.
Holly Johnson Gallery has what could be a pretty wild show of Rebecca Cater’s art pieces. I also
want to see the Joey Brock abstract and slightly graffiti inspired paintings at Craighead-Green. I
just know online pictures and card don’t do the work justice. A reproduction can only grab your

|All the galleries mentioned above are open all day Saturday, but their opening receptions are
from 6 to 8PM. Finally, if I can drag myself out again, then I would find myself at Terrain Dallas to
see another odd creation by Rachel Fischer in the front yard of this fascinating art location.
Lookup 1122 Elmdale Pl in Dallas, TX 75224 and visit them Sunday from 1 to 3PM. Fischer is
definitely one to watch.
