RISING Gallery: A Work in Progress

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.

A speakeasy, moveable walls, 
multi-media areas, 
private event venue, cutting-edge LED lighting
...this gallery has left no detail 
to chance.  

They will be unveiling their new space in conjunction with the opening of the
Galileo's Garden Exhibiton
Friday 11/11, 6p-9:30p

Denver based husband and wife artists Tyler & Monica Aiello 
bring their conjoined solo shows collectively titled 
“Galileo’s Garden”.  

I've already marked my calendar. Now mark yours.
