Nasher Sculpture Center Exhibits Local Talent During Dallas Art Fair

Dallas art venues are gearing up for the Dallas Art Fair and Biennial, of course, which promises to busy downtown with out-of-towners. The Nasher Sculpture Center opens Sightings an exhibition by Erick Swenson, internationally recognized, Dallas-based artist, on April 14 in time with the fair.

Nasher Sculpture Center writes about the work:

“Rendered with a naturalist’s sensitivity and incredible precision, the works often present fantastic vignettes of animals ensnared in strange, sometimes devastating circumstances, or quietly poetic scenes that evoke the beauty and tragedy of nature, as well as our own human condition.  Often shocking in their realism and precise details, the works take months, sometimes years, for the artist to fabricate, making new work by Swenson incredibly rare.”

Promising to be a “delicious” exhibition worth seeing while you are in the city for art. Also, the Dallas International Film Festival opens this week.
