Last Call for “Love Letters” at the Winspear Opera House, ends Sunday, April 3

If you’ve never seen the original Broadway hit written by A.R. Gurney, or if you have, you do not want to miss LOVE LETTERS featuring Ali MacGraw and Ryan O’Neal presented by AT&T Performing Arts Center. Trust us, it’s not the same old song and dance. In fact, there is no singing. Or dancing.

The renowned actors who co-starred in the iconic 1970 film Love Story, return to the spotlight to tell, er, read the story of Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner through a series of (we’ll assume) handwritten letters exchanged over the course of a 50 year friendship, love affair and at times, hate affair.  

Andrew is exactly who his seemingly distinguished name portrays him to be. The intelligent, cautious, over-achieving, mostly likable guy (albeit some prick-ish moments ensue) seems to have his five-year plan handy at all times. His counterpart is a well-to-do, free-spirited, ornery and quite often, self-centered young lady whose “live in the moment” mentality causes a bit of turbulence for her future.

The set is simple. One long, rectangular table, two spotlights (each shining on one actor), two chairs, two people, and two glasses of water sit front and center. The actors perch side by side reading aloud the letters each penned to the other as if they live in two different worlds. The two never exchange so much as a glance yet they share all of life’s victories, hardships, achievements and failures. The depth of their affections for one another is undeniable and flawlessly portrayed through MacGraw’s and O’Neal’s performances.

Treat your mom, your sister, your dad, your best friend or your significant other to a heartwarming show filled with love, laughter, wit and memories. Make reservations at one of our award-winning One Arts Plaza restaurants Tei-An, Proof + Pantry or Jorge's Tex Mex Cafe and make it an experience to remember. This Sunday, April 3 is the last day to enjoy LOVE LETTERS so get your tickets today!

BTWSPVA Students Chalk It Up with CUT

One Arts Plaza’s neighboring Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts students, recently partnered with OAP tenant, charlieuniformtango (CUT) on an incredible project!

“We strive to support the arts in Dallas, and this is a fun way to support these talented students. Everyone enjoys the art so much,” said Lola Lott, charlieuniformtango principal/CEO.

Join our friends at JM Gallery Tomorrow for an artist talk with Kyle Hobratschk

This Wednesday, December 9 at 6:30 p.m., JM Gallery, located right here in One Arts Plaza, will be hosting an artist talk with Kyle Hobratschk, a young artist who hails from Saudi Arabia but earned his BFA from SMU in 2011. The exhibition he shares with fellow artist, Shelly Scott, called Dimensions has already received accolades from PaperCity Magazine editor, Patricia Mora  

Kyle will be discussing his unique creative process which begins with the construction of small, imaginary architectural models inspired by his affinity for historical monuments, roof tops, silos and even headstones. Next, each structure is rendered using aquatint, a print process that produces deep, velvety tones and shadows. Each model is represented in several different pieces using a variety of angles and perspectives. When Kyle is not working at his studio in Bishop Arts, he is often in Corsicana where he offers students 6-week fellowship opportunities where they can reside and hone their craft at his newly renovated 100West Corsicana studio.


You don’t want to miss Kyle’s unique series! Join us tomorrow evening for a glass of wine, an intimate gathering with the artist and to learn more about his fascinating process. And remember, all pieces on display at JM Gallery are available for purchase. This is the perfect time to give a gorgeous piece to the art aficionados in your life, or treat yourself and your home to a beautiful oil painting or etching just in time for the holidays.



Booker T. Washington High School Students Perform at One Arts Plaza

One Arts Plaza guests, tenants, residents and clients were stunned by the spectacular performances, and each number was met with applause.

JM Gallery's current and phenomenal installation

JM Gallery was abuzz on the evening of November 7, as art collectors and enthusiasts filtered in and out of the gallery for a chance to meet artists Kyle Hobratschk and Shelley Scott. The opening reception was met with much enthusiasm, and art aficionados were intrigued by the pieces enjoyed mingling with the artists and learning about their processes and inspiration.

Viewers were especially interested in Shelley’s sculptures of household tools such as clamps, glue, and abstract shapes. Her work, almost primitive, provides unexpected perspectives towards the preconceived notions of dimension.

Similarly, Kyle’s pieces were praised for their representation of structural spaces. His artistic process is particularly interesting.  After building small architectural structures, he renders them using a traditional printing process producing prints and painting of deep, velvety shadows and abstract shapes.

If you missed a chance to attend the artist reception, Kyle Hobratschk and Shelley Scott’s exhibition will be on display at JM Gallery now through December 19. The gallery is open Tuesday through Thursday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.



YOU'RE INVITED: Join JM for an artist reception

What are your Saturday plans? Join us at JM Gallery for a very special artist reception for Kyle Hobratschk and Shelley Scott. The show, which will be on display from November 7 0 December 19, features pieces that challenge the viewers’ perceptions of space. Kyle’s prints and oil paintings reflect architectural design with their references to warehouses, cornerstones, barns and ancient temples. Though these images are not actual buildings, they exude visually powerful structures.

Sculpture Shelley Scott’s pieces integrate our perception of two and three-dimensional space. Two-dimensional images seem to be solid structures, while three-dimensional objects appear to be flat drawings. The contrast in her pieces is truly captivating and intriguing.

Don’t miss out on a chance to be the first to see Kyle and Shelley’s work! Join us for snacks and beverages as well as good conversation. You’ll be able to meet and greet the artists and gain insight into their creative processes. The reception will take place at JM Gallery, located at One Arts Plaza, on Saturday from 5 – 8 P.M.
