Get Your Swirly On

See a solo exhibit of 31 paintings by surrealist Cliff Snell III Monday at the Granville Arts Center, 300 N 5th St. in Garland.

He currently has 25,241 fans and claims to be "the most popular living visual artist on Facebook." Popular McSwirlytown's show will include new works as well as some loaned by collectors and his most popular image, "The Night I Walked Alone." Admission is free; the show hangs 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays through December 7. Call 972-205-2780 or visit

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way.

Alice Laussade writes about food, kids, music, and anything else she finds to be completely ridiculous. She created and hosts the Dallas event, Meat Fight, which is a barbecue competition and fundraiser that benefits the National MS Society. Last year, the event raised $100,000 for people living with MS, and 750 people could be seen shoving sausage links into their faces. And one time, she won a James Beard Award for Humor in Writing. That was pretty cool.
