Gallery 'sale' & remodel in Dallas Morning News

In preparation for remodeling its space before its next show opens Sept. 12 (featuring paintings by University of North Texas graduate Sarah Williams), Marty Walker Gallery is using most of the works from what the owner calls its “back room” to put forth a special exhibition. Pieces from its collection, some of which may never have been featured in a show, are being feted in a salon-style presentation and sold at a discount. The artists include Waddy Armstrong, Douglas Leon Cartmel, Beau Comeaux, Ted Kincaid, Archie Scott Gobber, Lisa Grossman, Angela Kallus and Jay Shinn, among others. The gallery is being scaled back, Walker says, with a natural byproduct being a reduced inventory. So, it’s a good opportunity to see or buy original works by some of Dallas’ best midcareer and emerging artists. Visit Dallas MorningNews'
