SALIENT FACTS. 50 R oad Trip: The ridiculous splendors of wood carver Camp Bosworth come to Webb Gallery in Waxahachie, opening September 16 (through November 11). The latest edition in the Marfa artist's ongoing series skewering Texas myths focuses on a haloed small-town foodie tradition: Dairy Queen. Rendering sundaes, cones, fountain drinks, and more frosty concoctions along with classic hotdogs, Bosworth serves up a slice of Ameri- cana, with Pop overtones. Small City: A diminutive blockbuster at the Meadows Museum enlarges upon our understanding of one of the most seminal Surrealists of all. "Dalí: Poetics of the Small, 1929–1936," lifts the veil on fresh scholarship spurred by the Mead- ow's 2014 acquisition of Salvador Dalí's painting The Fish Man (L'homme pois- son), 1930, arguably from the artist's greatest period (September 9 – December 9).

Anspon ART NOTES SHAYNA FONTANA S ince its introduction in 1937, the iconic 90-cm Hermès silk scarf has been in a constant state of reinvention. Skilled artists and designers have created more than 2,000 designs in 75,000 specially created colors. The silk twill, woven and printed in Lyon, France, has a special sheen and a crucial sine qua non: Dry clean only. Until now. In perhaps the big- gest reinvention yet, Hermès introduces the Wash scarf. Artisans bathe and wash the carré in a unique method that mat- tifies the silk, adding a filtered look to the colors and creating a supple, velvety texture. Designed for everyday wear, this scarf is — quelle surprise! — machine washable. Included in the premier Wash collection is Texan Kermit Oliver's first scarf design, Pani La Shar Pawnee, orig- inally released in 1984 and interpreted here in eight stunning colorways. $430, at the Hermès boutique, Anne Lee Phillips IT'S A WASH T hrough dreamy vintage textiles and hand-sewn details, former stylists Lindsey McClain and Jamie Coulter have upped the caftan game with La Vie Style House. After only two trunk shows, Barneys New York picked up the line — which promptly sold out. Dallas interior designer Amy Berry collaborated on a collection coming this fall, and La Vie has also partnered with McClain's sister Lisa Moore (the force behind cult-favorite swim line Cover) on a resort collection in black, white, and raffia. laviestyle Lisa Collins Shaddock C'EST LA VIE COURTESY THE ARTIST AND WEBB GALLERY, WAXAHACHIE Camp Bosworth's studio, Marfa, with his Dairy Queen series for Webb Gallery in process Kermit Oliver's Pani La Shar Pawnee scarf for Hermès La Vie Style House
