Helen Altman's "Big Doe" at Talley Dunn Gallery

Torches aren't only used for Olympic ceremonies anymore. Fort Worth resident and artist Helen Altman uses torches to create stunning works, many of which are on display as part of the Firewalls exhibition at Talley Dunn Gallery. Inspired by nature, Altman uses fire on wet paper to create drawings of animals, and her works also allude to the fires that have consumed portions of the western United States. It's hard not to love this drawing, "Big Doe," and the deer's stoic expression.

"Big Doe," along with over a hundred other torch drawings, paintings and sculptures, is on display at Talley Dunn through August 27. The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Call 214-521-4322 or visit talleydunn.com for more information.
