The D Art Slam got going in earnest today at the Fashion Industry Gallery. But like all fancy art events, a swank V.I.P. part went down Thursday night. And at the party, the new Dallas 9 was announced. If you are unfamiliar with the original Dallas 9, they were a group of artists who brought a little art and culture to the area in the 1930s and ’40s. Among the new 9 charged with carrying on that tradition is Kathleen Wilke, who Art&Seek has had an eye on since January when we profiled her.

And Wilke isn’t the only person with A&S ties taking part in Art Slam – guest blogger Gail Sachson helped jury the show.

  • I arrived at the party Thurs. night too late to grab a drink, let alone see the winners announced. But I did get a look around, and f.i.g. once again looks fantastic – and this time the art is local! Definitely worth checking it out, if only to see such a variety of Texas work in one space.

  • It sounds like it was a great event with talent
