ART + DECORATION From top: Shebly David Meier's Stacks, 2011 - 2018; Angel Oloshove's Rainbow Aura Vessels, 2018; both at Site131. O rnare showroom, which was under renovation for much of the summer, has reopened with all new collections, including Wide Line by Ornare art director Ricardo Bello Dias. Individual elements in the home — tile, cabinets, closets, bathrooms, kitchens — are interpreted as a whole, to create harmonious and interconnected spaces. Dias' modular panels, frames, furniture, and shelves come in different shapes, thickness, materials, and finishes, and can be configured in myriad ways to wrap and connect rooms. There are also ingenious accessories for kitchen tools, easily moveable trays and shelves for wall systems, and organizers for vanities and drawers. Three new colors dominate: nut brown, dune, and dove gray. Ornare, 1617 Hi Line Dr., Rebecca Sherman IT'S AWRAP A t Site131, curator/director Joan Davidow returns to her roots in ceramics with the group show "Clay & Things." Eight talents, including a crop of Texans, are showcased. Among the highlights are the taxidermy-influenced creations of collaborators Morgan and Eric Grasham; Angel Oloshove's abstracted spherical vessels, glowing with color, which reference the artist's beginnings as a painter; Jessica Fortier Kreutter's helter-skelter, deconstructed porcelain assemblage; and the show's most droll offerings, Shelby D a v i d M e i e r 's take on ubiquitous Styrofoam to-go containers. "Clay + Things," at Site131, through December 14, Catherine D. Anspon CLAY MATION IN A DILBECK DREAM C harles Dilbeck is one of the most beloved and revered architects in our region. His French Norman-style estates, quirky storybook cottages, and prolific ranch houses have captured our imagination for almost 90 years. This month, Preservation Dallas celebrates Dilbeck's legacy with a tour of his homes on Saturday, October 27. The general tour starts Saturday morning at the Angelika Film Center, with a brief symposium on Dilbeck's style and life led by architectural experts Jann Patterson Mackey and Willis Winters. Highlights of the tour are five rarely seen Dilbeck homes from the 1930s to the 1960s. A patron-level tour includes access to one additional home and patron- party house. Tickets $40 to $100, at preservationdallas. org. Rebecca Sherman K isabeth Furniture has been the go-to custom furniture maker for generations of interior designers in Dallas and Fort Worth.
