A Straight Arrow with a Side of Edge

Red Arrow Contemporary

Another Dragon Street newcomer, Red Arrow features a family contingent: Ad man Ed Stafford is joined in his co-curatorial endeavors by BFA-wielding daughters Erin and Elissa. We’re smitten with the inclusive, democratic vibe of the open-concept floor plan, while its exterior is hard to miss, topped by its namesake, distinctive roadside sign from Ed’s personal collection. Past shows promulgated San Antonio talents including wry wordsmith Gary Sweeney, Ken Little of the masterful bronze animals often formed from casts of discarded clothing and last month’s group view of seven DFW-area MFA grads. Up now, French sculptress of billowy inflatables Anne Ferrer, making her Dallas debut (through June 22). 1130 Dragon St, Ste. 110, 214.335.9556; redarrowcontemporary.com.
