Prepare For Lift-Off

Some random person on the Internet once said, "Grad school is like poker. If you don't know who the patsy is, it's you." Well, I know who the patsy ain't. It ain't any of the studio art grad students whose art is being displayed as part of the new exhibit at the Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas Art Lab, 1608-C Main St. Launch features works of photography, drawing, painting, video and sculpture by 15 people working toward their Master of Fine Arts at various universities throughout the metroplex. The lucky 15 were chosen by a panel of CADD member gallery directors from 50 applications. Here's hoping Launch lives up to its name and sends these upcoming artists straight into the limelight. Check out the exhibit through September 3. For more information, call 214-741-1075, or visit
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: July 16. Continues through Sept. 3, 2009
