• Jessica Vollrath at Pencil on Paper Gallery: A preview of Jessica Vollrath's works from Dallas' own Pencil on Paper Gallery definitely piqued our interest.

I am curious to see the artworks by the conceptual artist Ashley Zelinskie at Amsterdam dealer Torch Gallery. Zelinskie has been working alongside NASA's James Webb Space Telescope team … More with Frank Hettig at Dallas Art Fair, Thursday – Sunday, April 4 – 7, at Fashion Industry Gallery; tickets, exhibitors, more, Adam Green recommends (top) Madeleine Bialke's Phoenix, 2024, at Alexander Berggruen; and (left) Nadia Waheed's Revenant, 2023, at Nicodim Gallery.
