Creating your own basic print publication isn’t a simple undertaking. Taking that idea further by sculpting one with a visually stimulating layout that defines and illuminates the topics at hand, and things become even more interesting. But what if you went even further? What if you built the publication around heady curatorial concepts and allowed local artists to interview one another, dig up historical stories of local art projects and provide criticism regarding work being shown at this moment in the Dallas and Fort Worth areas? Well shit, then you’ve got semigloss., the area’s newest and most ambitiously produced cultural periodical. It’s the paper baby of local Centraltrak artist-in-resident Sally Glass, and Friday, the quarterly magazine offers up its second pressing. While the last issue was rooted in the topic of place, Friday’s release will dabble in all things ephemera. You’ll need to grab a copy at Goss-Michael Foundation (1405 Turtle Creek Blvd.) because these artifacts sell fast and have a limited printing. Join the party from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday. semigloss. costs $10. Visit gossmichaelfoundation.org/blog.
