Plush Gallery opens the fall season celebrating 23 years since our debut, as one of the longest running alternative spaces around. Our first exhibition for the autumn will be our annual juried exhibition, SUPER FRESH. This year's show features 27 works by 27 artists, as chosen by distinguished artist and curator, Narong Tintamusik. The juror narrowed down these selections from over 175 artworks submitted.
At the opening reception, awards will be announced, including one recipient of a solo exhibition at Plush in 2024, and three artists to participate in a panel discussion at the closing reception. Lo-fi DJ Altoon C will lay down the beats for the event.
THE STORY OF
Between 2000 and 2012, Plush Gallery produced over 60 art exhibitions from their home base of Dallas, in addition to participating in numerous art fairs and curatorial projects in cities across the U.S., such as New York, Chicago, Miami, Houston, and Santa Fe. During that time, the experimental space won two Best of Dallas awards from the Dallas Observer, and had a nomadic presence with locations beginning in the Cedars neighborhood, then moving to a vintage parking garage, and later to a high rise in downtown Dallas, before settling into the offices of Cunningham Architects in the Design District. In 2012, owner and founder Randall Garrett closed the space to focus on his own work as an artist and teacher. In September 2018, after a six year hiatus, Garrett reopened Plush Gallery, adding artists from Mexico City to a budding stable of emerging Texas and U.S. artists.
