OBSESSIONS. DECORATION. SALIENT FACTS. 14 A groundbreaking ceremony during April's Dallas Arts Month revealed plans for two luxury projects coming to the Dallas Arts District in 2019. Developer Craig Hall, whose mixed-use downtown complex Hall Arts houses tenants including fi nancial services company KPMG and chef Stephan Pyles' Flora Street Cafe, unveils the Hall Arts Hotel and Hall Residences — a colossal $250 million project on the corner of Ross Avenue and Leonard Street. The 183-room, eight- story boutique hotel will feature a rooftop pool, ballroom, and fi tness center, and original artwork in every guest room, some from the private collection of Craig Hallmark MOMENT and his wife, Kathryn. Next door, the Hall Residences — a 25-story glass tower — will have 44 condos with 11-foot ceilings, fl oor-to-ceiling windows, and spacious terraces. A 17,000-square-foot amenity fl oor includes a dog park, lap infi nity pool, outdoor kitchen, and private wine storage. (The Halls will occupy residences on the sixth and seventh fl oors.) Dallas-based HKS Architects, Inc., is designing both buildings, while New York fi rm Bentel & Bentel tackles the hotel's interior design, and Dallas' Emily Summers Design Associates creates contemporary interiors at the Residences. Hall Arts, 2323 Ross Ave., Suite 200, 214.269.9533, Linden Wilson T aking on the Ancients: A top painting show at Cris Worley Fine Arts melds ritual, feminism, fi lm noir, and the occult in a potent brew. Houston talent Kelli Vance's second solo there, enigmatically titled "Sappers and Miners," includes large-scale photorealist canvases echoing murals in Pompeii's Villa of the Mysteries (through June 17) … At Valley House Gallery, the latest canvases of SMU prof Barnaby Fitzgerald add Surrealism to his preferred topic, Arcadia, inspired by a childhood spent in Perugia, as well as advanced study in Urbino (through June 10). A Master of the Mutable: One of the most brilliant yet hard-to-defi ne American artists of our time is coming to the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. West Coast-based Doug Aitken won the International Prize at the Venice Biennale (in 1999) and captivated audiences with his genre-defying meld of art-making, installation work off-site — especially the Mirage house at Desert X, Coachella Valley — and fi lmmaking. The mid-career survey "Electric Earth" arrives from its organizing venue, Museum of Contemporary Art, in L.A., Aitken's hometown. Its title, taken from his project at the Venice Biennale, only hints at the hypnotic moving-image installations that viewers will experience (through August 20). Catherine D. Anspon ART NOTES W hen she was growing up in Eritrea, an African country bordered by Sudan and Ethiopia, Nardos Imam's only exposure to fashion was her mother's Vogue pattern books. She honed her design skills at El Centro in Dallas and landed a job as a designer at Richard Brooks Fabrics before accepting a position in bridal alterations at Stanley Korshak. She launched her label Nardos Design thereafter, and soon society swans and brides fl ocked to her for custom evening dresses and bridal gowns. We still obsess over the blush silk faille gown she fashioned for Lauren Scruggs' 2014 reception when she wed E! News co- host Jason Kennedy. This spring, Imam's boutique expanded from its Victory Park studio to a more spacious showroom in The Plaza at Preston Center. On the racks recently were sculptural dresses in fuchsia, lime green, and mustard hues, embroidered and appliqued with colorful fl owers. "I handcraft every detail, adding beadwork and jewels from around the world," Imam says.
