OBSESSIONS. DECORATION. SALIENT FACTS. 20 T he Mother of The R o s e : S u m m e r viewing splendors begin with works on paper by the late Jay DeFeo, presented in a contemplative gem of a show at Galerie Frank Elbaz (through July 14). Independent curator Paul Galvez has been tapped to cull the Bay Area artist's works from the 1970s, timed to an exhibition that debuted at Dallas' sister city, Dijon, France — a show that pairs DeFeo's work with creations from a younger generation. Catch "Jay DeFeo: The Ripple Effect," next at the Aspen Museum of Art, opening June 29 (through October 28). In Dallas at Elbaz, decipher the mindset of the beat-generation DeFeo who has been rediscovered thanks to the greatness of her epic sculpture/painting The Rose, one of the touchstones of the Whitney Museum of American Art's collection. The Beat Goes On: Deserving an accolade for its title alone, Jeremy Joel solos at Fort Works Art in "Beatbox Caviar" (through June 30). The muralist, occasional gallerist, and curator brings his outsider, self-taught status to the white cube spun around a family narrative. Barry McGee meets folk art, Joel's nuanced work signals a voice that deserves attention. Light + Space: While you're in Fort Worth for the Murakami show at The Modern (see page 56) and Jeremy Joel at Fort Works Art, check out the soaring, multicolored strings of Gabriel Dawe's Plexus no. 34, in the atrium of the Amon Carter Museum of American Art (through September 2). Closing its two-year run, Dawe's site-specific installation commissioned by the Carter is both heroic and diaphanous … On the same wavelength, the spectrum-spanning photography of lens-based pioneer Ellen Carey serves up gorgeous slices of color that seem to waft from images of crumpled paper (at the Amon Carter, through July 22). Fair Fare: Photo fans who missed the AIPAD show in NYC or were overwhelmed by the fare of the Dallas Art Fair will have a chance to catch the best of Photographs Do ART NOTES I t's a major coup: Dallas C o n t e m p o r a r y — i n partnership with the American Pavilion, organized by School of the Art Institute of Chicago and University of Chicago — is exhibiting "Paula Crown: The Architecture of Memory" at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia.

"Highlights: New York and Dallas Art Fairs" at PDNB features some of the greatest hits of vintage and contemporary photography through the wry, informed eyes of Missy and Burt Finger (through June 23).
