Trammell & Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art
Alexander Gorlizki, born in  1967  and working from studios in Brooklyn, New York, and Jaipur, India, is known primarily for works on paper.  This exhibition, Alexander Gorlizki: Variable Dimensions, however, brings together the artist’s work in drawing, sculpture, installation, video, and the applied arts—carpets, wallpapers, textiles—for a rich kaleidoscopic experience of the artist’s profoundly creative imagination.

“Variable Dimensions” refers to an entity without fixed boundaries. It is shifting and not easy to define. It also suggests layers or multi-faceted experiences, imaginative worlds that can be viewed in different and occasionally contrasting terms: Western art and Asian art, the spiritual and the prosaic, cartoon imagery and a rarified, poetic sensibility.

What’s the connection to Asian Art? All the work is informed by and/or partially fabricated in India. Rather than being stylistically Indian, it refers to an artist’s relationship with India.

Prepare to come unhinged, as the artist moves across formats, media, and sensations. Prepare to laugh at the absurdity of our need to rationalize, narrate, systematize, interpret.  Gorlizki will defy you with juxtapositions of elements garnered by his roving eye from world cultures, with particular fondness for the visual vocabularies of Mughal painting, Central Asian stitchery, and biomorphic symbolism.

Texas Ballet Theater kicks off the 2015-2016 season with artistic director, Ben Stevenson's Dracula in accompaniment with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. This will be sixth time that the orchestra collaborates with the Fort-Worth based ballet company. Tickets begin at $15.

There are few believers in the 2015 New York Giants, and that fact is reflected in the line for Sunday night's season-opening game in Arlington, TX. against the Dallas Cowboys. The Giants were 5-point underdogs in the opening line, and that has surged to six or seven points depending on what bookmaking service you look at.
