BLUE PRINT ART GALLERY OPENS IN DALLAS, TEXAS
Blue Print, a fine home furnishing boutique, expands into the commercial gallery world.
Dallas, Texas: Blue Print Gallery, will have its grand opening and first art reception on Thursday, April 5th from 6:00pm – 8:00pm.
Blue Print is answering the needs of Dallas’ growing art community by opening a gallery-only location dedicated to bringing established, mid-career and emerging contemporary artists to Texas. Blue Print Gallery will open its well known “blue doors” in the heart of Uptown directly next to its fine home furnishing boutique, Blue Print. It will be in a historic home located at 2701 Fairmount Street. Blue Print Gallery will be representing over 50 artists from around the world. It will be open to the public Monday – Saturday from 10:00am – 5:00pm and will host new exhibitions monthly.
The opening reception will exhibit work from the following artists: Charles Patrick, who pins paper butterflies into unique shapes, Mary Rountree Moore, an abstract landscape painter, Rick Beck, a hand cast glass sculptor and Marilla Palmer, a collage artist who works with pressed foliage, holographic papers and embroidery.
Blue Print Gallery walls will be filled with a large variety of artwork from contemporary abstract paintings and works on paper to fine art photography and sculptures. In order to accommodate and show more works than a typical gallery, there will be several viewing rooms where clients can peruse additional stored inventory. One of the gallery missions is to have a very approachable and welcoming environment to someone purchasing their first piece of art as well as to the avid collector. The gallery is cultivated by Lauren Zogg, Blue Print Gallery’s Art Curator.
The five owners behind Blue Print, Cynthia Collins of Collins Interiors, Caroline Eastman of Eastman Interiors, Leslie Jenkins of Jenkins Interiors, Carrie Jane Pogoloff of Blue Print Interiors and Lucy Ward with Collins Interiors are excited to expand Blue Print, which they founded together in 2010, by introducing new artists to the diverse and growing art culture in Dallas.

The Family Place is the Dallas area’s leading organization working to empower victims of violence and advocating social change to put a stop to family violence. They provide assistance and services to over 10,000 people a year. They continue to grow their facilities and we were happy to be able to “serve” them and their families as they opened a new building in Dallas. With the generosity of several of our amazing artists we were able to fill the walls of their new “home” hoping to bring some joy and beauty to families who desperately need it.
