Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

The Latino Cultural Center's second annual Maestros Tejanos exhibit features the work of artist Tina Fuentes, who specializes in still-life paintings of fruit. A native of West Texas, Fuentes is heavily inspired by the desert borderlands and the life and death struggles of the many immigrants who try to cross them--"I had the opportunity to see the adverse effects that this climate and region can have on the human body," she says, alluding to the dark themes that underlie her work. See the fruits of Fuentes' labor from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays through November 21. The Latino Cultural Center is located at 2600 Live Oak St. Call 214-671-0045 or visit dallasculture.org.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Starts: Sept. 3. Continues through Nov. 21, 2009

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
