OBSESSIONS. DECORATION. SALIENT FACTS. 26 I t's a great time for Fort Worth food and drink lovers. But with exciting new spots opening every week, it's impossible to keep up with all of them. Luckily, one annual event brings the best of North Texas' diverse flavors together in one place: the Fort Worth Food + Wine Festival. The fundraiser for the Fort Worth Food + Wine Foundation consists of eight events held Thursday through Sunday, April 2 to 5, many at Heart of the Ranch at Clearfork. New this year is From Houston to Ho Nai, with James Beard Award- winning chef Chris Shepherd leaving his range in Houston to team up with Tuan Pham of Fort Worth's Four Sisters — A Taste of Vietnam for an Asian-influenced Texas dinner. Other highlights include: Tacos + Tequila, which pairs our favorite food and spirit with chefs from Meso Maya, Salsa Limón, and more, plus a lucha libre exhibition; Nite Bites, featuring Texas cocktails and late-night snacks from spots such as Joy Macarons and The Dusty Biscuit Beignet Bar; Culinary Corral, which makes brunch a four- hour affair with a tasting tent, beer garden, marketplace, and a Rosé and Croquet garden; Burgers, Brew + Blues, a burger competition set to a live blues soundtrack; and Ring of Fire, which takes the classic cookout up a notch with everything from barbecue to exotic meats and pizza. The blowout Main Event takes place Friday evening, with bites from some of North Texas' top chefs, including Jon Bonnell (Bonnell's Restaurant Group), Brian Olenjack (Bird Café), James Gaines (Reata Restaurant), and Molly McCook (Ellerbe Fine Foods), matched with more than 100 wines, spirits, and craft brews.

For Fall and Resort 2020, the brand unveils a new collection of five bags A rtist Mark Bradford b e g a n h i s c a r e e r working with traditional materials, but he found his voice when he picked up small swatches of paper from the floor of a hair salon and incorporated them into his art. Almost three dozen of these works make up the new exhibition, "Mark Bradford: End Papers" at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (March 8 – August 9). The works combine painting and collage using end papers, the translucent paper squares used by African-American salons to protect hair during the permanent-wave process. This, Bradford knows from experience — he was raised in South Los Angeles, where he trained to be a hairdresser in his mother's salon and worked with the papers on a daily basis. He was nearly 30 when he began studying art, and earned an MFA in 1997. Over the past 10 years, he's gained swift recognition, and his works now sell for millions. themodern. org. Billy Fong A NEW EMPYRE in 10 brilliant, head-turning hues —hot pink, mustard and turquoise. The bags are made in New York City from the rich python and lizard skins for which Wyld Empire is known, as well as newcomers vegan leather and straw. Our dream order: the James top-handle bag in baby-blue alligator. @wyldempyre. Regan Landreth PERMANENT WAVE Mark Bradford Lauren Blake
