We know you fancy yourself an art aficionado. You probably take periodic trips to the big local collections to see the classics, and while those Salvador Dali reprints hanging between movie posters in your house are cool, you're probably tired of looking at them. If so, you shouldn't miss the exhibition Clearstory at the Valley House Gallery and Sculpture Garden, 6616 Spring Valley Road. The solo show features paintings by David Collins, whose work incorporates industrial shapes, such as windows, to explore the relationship among light, space and memory. The exhibition is on display until September 24. The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Admission to the reception, gallery and the sculpture garden are free. For more information, call 972-239-2441 or visit valleyhouse.com.
Sat., Aug. 27, 6-8:30 p.m.; Mondays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Starts: Aug. 27. Continues through Sept. 24, 2011
