The Oak Cliff Society of Fine Arts steps into this year’s fall salon series at Turner House with topics including Dallas architecture and rock ‘n’ roll history.
First up is a conversation Thursday, Oct. 10, about the prolific Dallas architect George Dahl, whose accomplishments include art deco buildings at Fair Park, the Neiman Marcus building Downtown, the old Dallas Morning News building and the Titche-Goettinger Building. Dahl also designed more than 20 buildings of the campus of the University of Texas at Austin.
Interior designer Adrienne Faulkner, who is Dahl’s granddaughter, will discuss the “dichotomy between architect and artist and why the lines were blurred,” with architecture critic Mark Lamster, who works for the Dallas Morning News and the University of Texas at Arlington.
It starts at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 10, and tickets cost $15 for Oak Cliff Society of Fine Arts members and $20 otherwise. You can also buy a season pass for $45, or $35 for members, that gets you into all three salons this season.
On Thursday, Nov. 14, it’s a discussion with legendary music promoter Angus Wynne and musician Lily Taylor of Top Ten Records. Plus, Alicia EV Borman brings selections from the Texas Music History Archive, which is housed at Top Ten.
Holiday Carols and Cabaret is the Dec. 12 salon. Sing along with holiday songs, show tunes and American pop standards or even take a turn at the piano.
