Saturday Night openings - MFA

The highlight of the openings tonight was the packed house at Steve Cruz's Mighty Fine Arts for the "Houston vs. Dallas Smackdown II" exhibition. Ran into lots of friends and artists I have worked with at VAL.

Houston artists in the exhibition included: Kelly Alison, Lydia Bodnar-Balahutrak,Yousef Balat, Penny Cerling, Noah Edmundson, Carter Ernst,Chris Hedrick, Pam Horsman, Sharon Kopriva, Kelly Moran, Gail Siptak and Bonnie Young.

In the back gallery space we all had a good laugh at what Rosemary Meza-DesPlas' work would have caused at VAL. We all loved her and her work!

mighty fine arts is an artist-run gallery located in the scenic and historic Oak Cliff neighborhood of Dallas. Artist Steve Cruz started the gallery in June of 2004 with the intention of providing an alternative space for innovative and underrepresented artists. mfa presents an eclectic array of shows with the guiding criteria of presenting work that is resonant, thoughtful and highly accomplished. From mid-career to fresh and unknown artists, mfa hopes to enlarge the perceptions of contemporary art in North Texas. The gallery is located at 419 N.Tyler between 8th and Davis St.
