Crawshay Gallery


outsiders seeking affordable space, strong artist-in-residence opportunities and generous grants, collaboration and inno- vation seem to be bursting onto the scene. From The Fabrication Yard, which provides graffiti artists a voice, to the growing scene in The Cedars, Dallas is a Mecca for new art,” he says. Crawshay is also optimistic about working with interior de- signers. “I think a lot of people get rooted in a particular way of working and with particular people. I think more should be done to encourage designers to explore more fully the wide array of talent that is out there but not necessarily well known,” he says.


CINQ Gallery


Scott Dawson, owner of CINQ, sees the art scene in Dallas becoming more progressive. He also sees a shift toward art that evokes simplicity and clarity.


“More people are moving


to Texas and more artists want representation in Dallas,” he says. He agrees with others that Dallas’ location, halfway be- tween the major art hubs on the East and West coasts, is a benefit and allows artists and collectors to draw influences from across the country. In 2017, CINQ plans to paint


a large mural on the side of its building. Dawson feels the dozens of events hosted by designers and galleries every month in the Design District is a great way for everyone to network and work together. It also provides a showcase for the diverse style and art in Dallas.


Calina Mishay Artist Calina Mishay, who paints building-size street art, feels the hottest trend of 2017 will be art- ists who can master the concept of bringing art to the people in an approachable, interactive


and fun way. She feels social media will play a large part in that and the trend she forecasts for the year is, in one word— rebellion.


“I believe we are living in a generation that wants to approach life, love and art in a unique way compared to even our parents’ generation,” Mishay says.


Part of that approach is for artists and interior designers to benefit from each other by keeping the “creating an experience factor” in mind. “If I am not doing street art, I’ll paint one-of-a-kind paintings specifically for a client’s home,” she says. “In the past, I’ve found this works ideally with an interior designer’s big-picture dream while allowing a homeowner to feel connected to the piece they’re hanging in their home.”


Carlyn Ray Designs Having grown up at her mother’s


gallery, which was first at Olla Podrida, Carlyn Ray, owner of Carlyn Ray Designs, has seen the art movement significantly change from the early ’80s until now. “Dallas’ interest has mi- grated from art and crafts, such as kaleidoscopes and turned wood, into purchasing larger, sophisticated and custom fine- art installations,” she says. Ray feels that Dallas seeks site-specific, monumental and experiential art, which creates an aura of expression, color and energy around the city. “This movement is unlike anywhere else in the world,” she says, “and the exciting part is, the Dallas art movement has just begun gaining momentum.” With regard to working with interior designers, Ray says: “To me, one of the core pillars of artwork is sharing creativity. I think the designer/gallery relationship should be defined by a willingness to collaborate
