This was taken a few months ago for when we had an exhibition of works by Damien Hirst.
We see the importance of advertising and like to engage with the passerby.

We roll deep when when it comes to spreading the word about our exhibitions.

Check it....that's how we roll ! !
Keep posted or check out the billboard....who know what we will have next.


Last night was the CADD Wrap Party hosted by Sky Modern, Positive Space and Modern Luxury Dallas. The party was held at the Kessler Woods Development in Oak Cliff. CADD (Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas) held an art fair several weeks ago and this was sort of a closing party for them. They were also celebrating the upcoming opening of the CADD Art Lab, not quite sure what that is but sounds interesting. Please excuse the quality of the images they are via camera phone.

Bumped into dear friend of the Foundation, Jason Sheeler who writes for The Dallas Morning News and FD Luxe. Styled as always in a double breasted suit jacket.

If you haven't visited The Kessler Woods project yet make it a point because there are some incredible homes. This house was great for an event such as this.

Chairs provided by Positive Space, sketches of clothing designs by Geoffrey Henning. There were two great models walking around sporting Geoffrey's designs but didn't manage to get a picture.
Mega art dealers Cris Worley of Pan American Projects, Christina Rees of Road Agent and Brian Gibb of The Public Trust.

Pleasant night time shot to end the evening.

Damien Hirst talking about the Sotheby's RED auction that he and Bono put together.

The auction took place in NY on February 14th 2008 and if you didn't know about it you must have been on another planet or too busy worry what to get you're partner for Valentines day.

The proceeds of the sale went to The United Nations Foundation to Support HIV and AIDS Relief Programs in Africa.

The auction raised over $28 million and pushed the charity's total take to the $100 million mark.

Last night was time to get up close and personal with the Modern Luxury Dallas MEN OF STYLE 2008. There seemed to be lots of bow-ties (too try hard). It would be nice to see someone rocking a well tailored suit with the top button shirt collar done up with no tie which seems to be all the rage in London right now.

It was held at Barneys New York

Strong drinks were required !! OMG !!

As the Euro2008 Football Championships are underway we thought it most fit to post this great video clip from Scottish artist Douglas Gordon.
Douglas Gordon was awarded The Turner Prize in 1996 and has just won Europe's most valuable art award, The Roswitha Haftmann Prize which he was awarded in early May. Douglas Gordon was born in 1966 in Glasgow and now lives in New York. Much of Gordon's work is seen as being about memory and uses repetition in various forms.

If you haven't seen this great video here is a clip...check it out !!
Get you're sport and art on !!

In 1892 Dallas established its first high school for African American pupils. The school was moved in 1922 and renamed Booker T. Washington High School after the African American education pioneer Booker T. Washington. In 1976 the school was repurposed as the Arts Magnet at Booker T. Washington High School.
On Saturday June 7th 2008 Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts celebrated its return to the Dallas Arts District with a concert and dinner.

The new building was designed by critically acclaimed architects Allied Works Architects and project architect Booziotis & Company. It is an incredible building, the dark grey coloured bricks look great and the use of light throughout the building is very well done. Its a great addition to the area and within walking distance to the DMA, Nasher and The Goss-Michael Foundation.

With a 99% graduation rate this school is know throughout the world for turning out very talented students. The Goss-Michael Foundation work very closely with faculty members and the advisory board and for the last two years have provided scholarships for Booker T. students for visual and music.
Around 7:00pm the alumni concert started, it was really hot but everyone trooped on.

David Ninh and Guillermo Perez were lurking around, we just had to include these handsome young chaps.

Norah Jones played afew songs, Erykah Ba-Didn't perform as she hurt her knee (seriously).

Todd Events did the party.

The menu consisted of hot dogs, mac-n-cheese and chicken pot pies !!

Can you believe its been 20 years since 16 young artists staged the now famous Freeze show in London's Surrey Docks.

An article came out in the Guardian newspaper, actually in their magazine called The Observer about the show. It interviews several of the artists and talks about their thoughts regarding the show and what they are doing now. Richard Patterson who was part of the Freeze exhibition and now lives in Dallas, Texas with his wife and gallery owner Christina Rees talks extensively about London at that time and what was going on. Richard also goes on to mention Dallas and The Goss-Michael Foundation !!

Basel is the place to be at this time of year for anyone who is interested in art, from movie stars and musicains, to billionaires and above. Oh...and normal folk too!
The Fair will go through until Sunday June 8th.

There is a great Conrad Shawcross scultpure outside the main hall, definitely worth checking out. This year Art Basel will rub shoulders with the biggest sporting event in Europe...the European Football (Soccer) Championships which start on Saturday June 7th.
Of course England with the best players in the world didnt qualify so the trophy is up for grabs. Mega Billionaire art collector, oil tycoon and owner of Chelsea Football Club Roman Abramovich has been seen around the fair so who, art and oil what more do you need.


If you still havent made it by to see our new exhibition by Brit duo Tim Noble & Sue Webster dont worry you still have time. If you cannot make it by in the week try Saturdays we are open from 11:00-4:00pm.
We have transformed the the exhibition space to reflect the mood and feel of their work, blacking out the space and turning it into an environment like nothing seen before in Dallas.

Using light and found objects such as rubbish and rusty metal they create wonderful sculptural masses to cast a perfect shadow.
