Dallas art lovers paint the town chic for a hot new gallery opening
What: LR Art House opening party
Where: LR Art House
The 411: Chic Dallasites gathered at a champagne reception to toast the opening of LR Art House, the city's newest boutique art gallery, inside a Dallas townhouse. It's the project of contemporary abstractionist artist Laura Roosevelt.
Abstract paintings and sculptures by Roosevelt were featured at the opening, at which guests enjoyed wine, passed hors d'oeuvres, and a tour of the art works. The collection remains on view, by appointment and via special events.
Roosevelt, the great granddaughter of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, recently moved back to her hometown of Dallas from the East Coast to be close to family. She specializes in abstract mixed media painting and is known for her unique layering technique.
“It’s so good to be back in Texas," she says in a release. "I find so much inspiration here.”
The LR Art House is slated to feature other artists in future exhibitions, as well.
“It’s always fun to view art in a gallery space, but that’s not usually how art is permanently hung," Roosevelt says. "I hope that my clients are equally inspired by our new space and what it represents in the art world.”
