OBSESSIONS. DECORATION. SALIENT FACTS. 18 C u b a C a l l i n g : Dallas painter Rolando Diaz — the subject of a PBS documentary about returning to Havana, his childhood home — steps in as curator at Mary Tomás Gallery. Diaz returned to his native city to cull 11 artists and 24 works to present in the exhibition "Cuba Soul" (through July 27). The Next Chapter: Gallerist Liliana Bloch, fresh from her second successful year of showing at the Dallas Art Fair, is preparing for a major move. Goodbye, Monitor Street, where she once shared an entrance with The Public Trust (which also recently relocated). Bloch told PaperCity that she will move to the West Design District with her stable — which includes leading Texas talents Leigh Merrill and Letitia Huckaby. Acquiring a 36,000 square-feet building ART NOTES at 4741 Memphis St., the new space will open this fall, headlining new works by Kathy Lovas … Meanwhile, The Public Trust's proprietor, Brian Gibb, has gone on to his own successful next chapter, still in the Design District at 2042 Irving Boulevard. This month, the gallery/ publisher of Art Prostitute toasts 15 years with a salute to some of the seminal talents in its roster (through July 31). Catherine D. Anspon T he warm, earthy interiors of the Dallas Design District's newest bridal salon were inspired by founder Megan Ziems' own beach home on Australia's Gold Coast. If that doesn't scream cooler than your average bride, we don't know what does. Grace Loves Lace outfits gypset-chic brides in every hemisphere, with locations in London, New York, L.A., and Queensland, Australia. The Dallas showroom is its first in Texas. The 5,500-square-foot space, designed with recycled timber beams and white polished floors is the ideal setting to try on the French lace gowns, each handmade in the Australian studio — and to toast to finding the perfect one. Grace Loves Lace, 1411 Dragon St., Lisa Collins Shaddock IN PRAISE OF LACE H er.HQ co-founders Cassi Oesterling and Tiffany Zamora quit corporate jobs and moved to Dallas to build a business from the ground up. So it's safe to say they have a strong understanding of the entrepreneurial, all-female clientele of Her.HQ, their part-workspace, part- social club that has opened as a pop-up in the Dallas Arts District. This month, they start accepting applications for membership at a to-be-announced permanent location, which will include a retail component highlighting women- led businesses. Members benefit from partnerships with local vendors, networking events, and programming centered around career development, creative exploration, and self-care. Lisa Collins Shaddock WORK IT, GIRL T he sun shines down o n y o u r v i n t a g e convertible as a breeze ruffles your hair, still wet from the waves. Famished, you stop for an organic grain bowl topped with avocado and herbs from a local farm to refuel before your afternoon yoga class. This may be a California dream, but it's how we feel every time we walk through the doors of Mixt, the casual concept whose Dallas location is its first outside the Golden State. The menu offers fresh salads, bowls, seasonal plates, and more than 72 locally sourced ingredients to mix up your own combo.
