ERIN MATHEWS 214.520.8300 ERIN@ERINHOME.COM THE RESIDENT EXPERT OBSESSIONS. DECORATION. SALIENT FACTS. 14 B order Politics: An artist from El Paso interjects the elixir of wit into the heady cocktail of border politics at Ro2 Art. Headliner Angel Cabrales, sculpture professor at The University of Texas at El Paso, comes to town with his droll, but prescient exhibition, "It Came from Beyond the Border." The show parodies American border paranoia; one seminal image equates our time with Sci-Fi thrillers from the '50s and '60s where earthlings lived under the constant threat of alien attack from outer space (January 18 – February 23) … Beyond Still Life: At Galleri Urbane, dual solos for Stephen D'Onofrio and Liss LaFleur bear loaded meaning that unfolds upon close viewing (January 12 – February 16). Captivating still-life canvases by D'Onofrio, who's based in Philadelphia, pack a mid-century vibe along with allusions to contemporary idealized home-design tropes.

Conceived by architectural designer Will Fox, the boutique takes cues from the YMCA — think an ultra-chic iteration of the famous recreation space, with stadium-style bleacher seating, and plenty of color. There are even lockers for storing your gear during one of Outdoor Voices' many in-store events.
