I’m in Dallas for two days to take the Fairmont Dallas Hotel’s Art Immersion Apprentice Trip. Despite numerous visits to galleries and art fairs with the hope to buy something more original than a classic rock album cover to hang on my walls, I’ve never been able to pull the trigger. This package features an hour session with Bryan Embry, owner of the nearby Ross Akard Gallery, who’ll help me learn how to make a purchase. (It also includes time with the hotel’s artist in residence and a dinner with wine parings at the hotel’s restaurant, Pyramid.) Afterwards, I’m going to hit the local galleries—Dallas has “the largest contiguous urban arts district in the nation”—and buy me some art.
I’ll also be having lunch with a friend of mine who lives in Dallas, aptly nicknamed “Tex.”
