I paid a little visit to the boys at Rising Gallery this week. Rising has a special place in my heart, as it was the first gallery to show my personal artwork, back in 2008. Since then, they have established themselves as a major player in the Dallas Arts Scene.
After moving from their initial location on Insurance Lane just off Knox and being housed in a temporary space on Jackson Street since the Spring, they are just weeks away from unveiling their gallery's permanent home.
The cool part? Their permanent digs are directly below their current location. This area is set to become the crown jewel uniting Southside on Lamar, Victory Park and Downtown. Lots of eyes have been on them these past few months, and the watched pot is just about ready to boil.
I got to take a sneak peek at the (quite literal) work in progress at the gallery.
