The lore of Texas runs strong in America. Every small town has a story, a history, a legend, a myth. You'll recognize yourself in a lot of the stories, the characters that make up these places. And in artist Noah Simblist's creation, you'll recognize something else as well - a conflict on foreign soil might start to feel closer to home. For his exhibition at the Reading Room (3715 Parry Ave.), Simblist imagines a small American town "where the utopian location of Zion can always be found on the horizon and catastrophe is always underfoot." The opening reception is 6-8 p.m. Saturday, but related discussions will take place from 4-6 p.m. March 21 and 4-6 p.m. April 12. More at www.thereadingroom-dallas.blogspot.com.
Saturdays, 4-8 p.m. Starts: March 21. Continues through April 12, 2015
