Slideluck III in Dallas occurred under a beautiful star filled night at Strauss Square in the Arts District of downtown Dallas.
An excellent potluck arrangement representative of the diversity of the audience kept everyone full. Dishes ranged from sushi to homemade tamales to a lemony rice salad with fresh local mint. Guests washed down delicious dishes with hand crafted beer and sprawled on blankets and at tables in the grass of the amphitheater.
The first 200 guests received a t-shirt by artist Brian Gibb, compliments of Pony Xpress. Director Misty Keasler introduced the slideshow with a word about the truly communal unique and art loving experience of Slideluck. DJ added a pitch perfect soundtrack to the evening, mixing live to the 25 featured artists. Sam Lao closed the evening with a high energy set.
Deep Red Press came out with some of their newest issues, including a beautifully produced zine by one of the fautured artists, Dannie Liebergott. We were so appreciative of the sponsors who made the event happen and kept the event completely free for the second year in a row – the Office of Cultural Affairs for the city of Dallas, the AT&T Performing Arts Center, Pony Xpress, The Public Trust Gallery, Sandbox Studio and of course, Brooklyn Brewery.
