Houston Art Visits Dallas

Houston-based artist Kent Dorn swims upstream for his exhibition at The Safe Room that opens this weekend. Er, he rolls up the highway at least. Then he climbs the stairs up into the hidden gallery space at the Texas Theatre (231. W. Jefferson Blvd.), paintings under arm, to display his new series of work, which is described as “parody[ing] the idealism of early American landscape painting.” Honestly, there's no telling how Dorn and his work will arrive, or at least it's none of our business, but we've been told to show up at The Safe Room from 6-9 p.m. Saturday. Admission is free. More at thetexastheatre.com.
