A Look Back at Taste & See

Just two weeks ago we celebrated three years of Art House Dallas with an anniversary fundraiser! The occasion was marked with a taste of the creativity we cultivate: a silent art auction and gallery featuring work by some of our favorite Dallas artists, live music by local songwriters on the lakeside patio, plus floral design, a photo booth, and happy hour with delicious food by our culinary artist friends. We had a great time as we gathered together in community to support artful living in our city!
