Summer Break

Dallas becomes more and more bleak as the summer days wear on. Vibrant gardens fade to crispy brown hay, and those little wiggly lines coming up from the road just magnify the uninviting cement all around. Even people change from pink-cheeked to toast-like. Perfect timing for a blast of color in the form of Valley House Gallery's Summer Show. The current exhibition, running through August 19, features gallery artists as well as bright landscapes by Simon Gaon and vivid botanical paintings by Jim Stoker. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. Valley House is located at 6616 Spring Valley Road. Call 972-239-2441 or visit
Mondays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Starts: July 25. Continues through Aug. 19
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. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
