indie gong show

david was dj'ing for the dallas indie film club gong show last weekend. before it started i was a bit bored, so i snapped a few pictures. the concept was great, and there were some brilliant short films...i just wish we'd have been able to see more, because the judges gonged entries off too fast before giving them a chance. maybe next year.

ten galleries, one night

some photos from my tour of the design/gallery district last night...

open studio

my friend florencia had an open studio this weekend before her return to buenos aires. these spaces are beautiful, and her paintings are amazing. i love her desk with all the bus maps of dallas, and her window with plants she will sneak back to add to her world botanical collection.

additions to the art collection

we scored these little things at the diorama party. the turkey ornament lives in the kitchen, and the other is now in the dining room. the funky art half bathroom is kinda full, so we are expanding out.

into the garden

things are really blooming in the back yard, and the veggies are growing from seed. i can't wait until we can harvest!

total success

so the diorama party was a great big deal. we had more than 60 entries, some of which fetched a bunch at auction. these are only a few of them...see more pictures here. stay tuned to the diorama blog for more pictures, press, and hopefully future happenings!
