This week’s print edition of the Observer is a celebration in portraits. It’s a highlight of those influential humans who are helping drive the city toward new, brighter goals. One of the chosen is the illuminating Sally Glass, local artist, curator, student, party-starter and editor in chief of semigloss. Magazine, a beautiful bimonthly publication designed to document the artwork of Dallas’ fringe. Each issue is a themed collaborative endeavor. An issue of semigloss. could jump from poetry to a collage to artists interviewing one another on specific exhibitions or projects of historical importance. Also, it looks good on a coffee table — hey, you have a coffee table. Issue three releases this Saturday at That That Gallery (3901 Main St., Dallas) and carries the universally appealing theme “Failure.” Copies are $10 and the party is free, so don’t cheap out. It runs from 7 to 10 p.m. Get more details at facebook.com/semigloss.mag/events.
