ART TOPICS 40 F resh from an immersive, two- person installation at the Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum in Austin last year, Dallas artist Sherry Owens unveils her first gallery show in Dallas in 20 years. The environmentally focused sculptor — our lady of crepe myrtle — continues with her signature material provided by Mother Nature and also adds cast bronze, drawings, and prints to this month's solo at Cris Worley Fine Arts, which inaugurates the fall season. "Sherry Owens: Ties to This World," September 7 –October 12, opening night, Saturday, September 7, 6 to 9 pm, Cris Worley Fine Arts, 1845 Levee St., Catherine D. Anspon TWIGGY I n one of the most anticipated exhibitions in Texas this year, the Nasher Sculpture Center mounts the first American museum survey for a beloved duo of the art world. Scandinavian c o l l a b o r a t o r s M i c h a e l Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset, aka Elmgreen & Dragset, have exhibited on every continent in the past quarter century except Antarctica, yet they're still best remembered for Prada Marfa (2005), commissioned by Ballroom Marfa. Now the Nasher looks at the broader practice of the Venice Biennale- exhibited pair who disrupt, surprise, conceal, and interject the surreal into the museum- going experience. Watch for a submerging/emerging contemporary art building in the sculpture garden; a human-sized rendition of the swimming pool turned on its side, Van Gogh's Ear, that rocked Rockefeller Center in 2016; a life- sized maid with a baby bump; and a silvery, male-gendered response to Denmark's sweet The Little Mermaid — one that speaks to gay rights. There's also a performance piece, Dallas Diaries, with a trio of young gents penning diary entries throughout the run of the exhibition. "Elmgreen & Dragset: Sculptures," September 14 – January 5, at the Nasher Sculpture Center, 2001 Flora St., Catherine D. Anspon Jennifer Steinkamp's Blind Eye 4, 2019, at Talley Dunn Gallery THE ILLUSIONISTS S isters Hannah Fagadau and Hilary Fagadau open their gallery, 12.26, this month at River Bend in the Dallas Design District. The name, 12.26, is a nod to their shared birthday, December 26. The inaugural exhibition, "Waters," is a two-person show pairing artists Alex Olson of L.A. and Nancy Shaver of New York in a thoughtful dialogue with an aquatic theme. "Waters," September 28 – November 16, at 12.26, 150 Manufacturing St., Billy Fong DATE WITH A GALLERY GLAM ROCK ROYALTY "W o m b , " T a l l e y Dunn Gallery's solo exhibition of five monumental video works by Jennifer Steinkamp, transports visitors to an ethereal, Zen- like space. The Los Angeles artist's meticulously detailed digital animations of natural environments are projected at massive scale, blurring the boundaries between reality and her reimagined world. "Womb," through October 12, at Talley Dunn Gallery, 5020 Tracy St., Billy Fong SEE THE FOREST FOR THE TREES I f you've dreamed of being in the presence of rock royalty — you know, the type that would hang out at Max's Kansas City in the 1970s and early '80s — then head to The Public Trust. Owner Brian Gibb opens the gallery's fall schedule with sexy and engaging images from photographer Mick Rock, who's captured through his lens superstars Andy Warhol, Queen, and The Ramones.
