Commercial and other galleries are listed here. This page shows historic as well as current art spaces, so some may have closed. Visual Arts Organizations are listed elsewhere. We try to keep up, but as fast as galleries go down, it'd be a full-time occupation.
To list here, Art Spaces should email J R with information in this precise order — the name, URL, street address, city-state-zip, phone number, email address, open times and how and whom artists should contact. Listings here are free.
Put all the information in paragraph form.
No attachments. Do not abbreviate. We list times first, then dates. See The Resources Index for other resources. Read How to Send Us Stuff before you send us other stuff. In the past I've kept school and university galleries separate from these. I'm slowly adding school-related galleries here, too.
J R's latest email is on the Contact us page.

Film & Video Venues
The Angelika Film Center at Central Expy and Mockingbird Lane East in Dallas and offers art flicks at regular prices. Parking is at a premium, but there's a lot slightly north on the access road, just behind the trendy new shopping center. Check the Angelika site for films, times & prices.
The Magnolia Lounge, site of Video Association of Dallas events, is officially addressed at 1121 First Avenue, but that's deceptive, because the lounge is actually inside the walls at Fair Park.
If you know just where it is, you can actually drive in and park out front. — unless, of course, the fair is on. Otherwise, you should probably park in the outer parking lots between the African American and Science museums, then walk in the fifty yards or so.
It's in a smallish (compared to surrounding buildings), decrepid buiding with a big front "porch" area and a line of doors that tend to lock themselves, so you might have to shake them or knock.
If the doors are open, you're letting cold air out. You might consider bringing a comforter — I've suggested they rent blankets — or at least wear warm clothes. They keep it cold in there. I like to call it, not "the Magnolia," but the Pneumonia Lounge. The cold is necessary to keep the projector from melting — or some such.
They usually have beer for sale, and ice. Water is close, or you could bring your own popcorn. The chairs aren't all that comfy, but the fare is usually very interesting, the quality excellent and the prices low, if they even bother to collect money.
