“New gallery to be opened on Thursday
Art association in new headquarters—reception plans.
New headquarters of the Dallas Public Art Gallery on the ninth floor of the Dallas Power and Light Company Building will be formally opened with a reception from 8 to 10 p.m. Thursday to which the public is invited. Hosts for the evening will be Arthur L. Kramer, president of the Dallas Art Association, and members of the association. Margaret Scruggs Carruth, chairman of the entertainment committee, has charge of arrangements for the affair. Mrs. George Aldredge will have charge of the house party.
Special guests will be Mayor T. L. Bradford, John N. Edy, City Manager; C. W. Davis, president of the Dallas Power & Light Company, and the other officials of the company and the City Commissioners.
For two years the gallery was housed on the second floor of the Majestic Theater Building. From time to time, various pieces from the permanent collection of the association were hung, but the space allowed for the gallery did not permit comprehensive viewing of the large collection, especially when visiting collections were hung. So for the first exhibition in the new galleries, which occupy the whole of the ninth floor of the Dallas Power and Light Company Building, most of the permanent pieces are to be on exhibition.
In the front gallery has been hung the Joel T. Howard loan collection and the pieces of sculpture owned by the Dallas Art Association. In the center gallery, the largest, will be found the larger pieces of the permanent collection, including Max Bohm’s Crossing the Bar, Pushman’s Last Page of the Koran and Emil Carlsen’s Study in Gray. all purchased from the Munger Fund; the largest of the Keating bequest paintings, ‘Ouse River at Bledsoe; Ernest Ipsen’s The Captain’s Sister, Haley Lever’s Boat Scene, George Glenn Newell’s Red Mill. Through Wooded Hills by Gardner Symons, Donegal Bay by William T. Richards, Off Massachusetts Bay by Lucian Abrams, Happy Holland by Robert Henri and Dieudonne by William M. Chase.
One of the smaller galleries at the back displays the paintings by Dallas artists which are included in the permanent collection, including those of Otis Dozier, Jessie David, Sue Hirst, Alexander Hogue, Olin Travis and E. G. Eisenlohr. In this gallery with its modern touches are also included the two paintings by William Schwartz which belong to the association, and the Victor Higgins Mountain Ceremonial. In the adjoining gallery will be found some of the older paintings in the collection, including the work of Robert Julian Onderdonk and William Windt. The corridor gallery on the left has been hung with Deane Carpenter loan collection of prints and Japanese paintings. The other corridor is devoted to the print collection of the gallery, including work by the following artists: Otis Dozier, William Lester, Olin Travis, Grandville Bruce, Eloise Reid Thompson, Margaret, Anne Scruggs and Reveau Bassett.”
