Tucked in the corner of Sigma and Welch Road, Southwest Gallery sits just off the Dallas North Tollway across from the Galleria. One of the gallery’s November shows is Russian Impressionism. This compelling collection includes some of Russia’s finest art. Southwest Gallery houses stunning paintings, sculptures, art glass and framing that radiates with rich artistic culture from the 19th to 20th century. The 16,000-square-foot showroom has been standing for more than 50 years.
Featuring 22 paintings from the Russian Impressionist art movement, this exquisite exhibition will captivate audiences. Impressionism is a 19th-century style that uses a technique with small, thin brush strokes. There is an emphasis on light and its changing qualities as well as movement. With Impressionist paintings, human perception and experience are apparent. Russian Impressionism developed independently from European and French Impressionist art during the 1860s all the way to 1930. Artists combined a variety of styles with a great amount of symbolism. Visit Southwest Gallery from 1–5 p.m. to see their Russian Impressionism exhibit. You’re guaranteed to see impressive work from the best and brightest academically trained Russian artists.
If you spot a painting or piece you can’t leave without, the Southwest Gallery actually offers a special preview service. Customers can view their selected pieces of art in their own home or office before final purchase. Southwest Gallery knows how much of a difference it makes to see the art in the area it will be showcased. It must complement the surrounding texture and feel of the room. The gallery is open Tuesday–Saturday from 9 a.m.–6 p.m. and Sunday 1–5 p.m. There is no appointment necessary and gallery viewing is free. Southwest Gallery is closed for Thanksgiving and open from 10 a.m.–5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 23 and Saturday, Nov. 24.
Know someone (or yourself) who may be interested in submitting their artwork? Send an email with images of the work to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make sure the photos are a reduced file size. One of the gallery’s 11 staff members will contact you within a few weeks.
For those needing design services for their home, look no further. Meet with one of Southwest Gallery’s art consultants, and regular staff will search through the inventory variety to find the perfect piece that exudes your style and taste. The design service has a complimentary home delivery and installation process, allowing customers to live with the art for a little while before deciding to purchase. Southwest Gallery can also insert graphics of the art into the existing home decor digitally so you can see if it complements what you already have.
