The Oak Cliff Society of Fine Arts is pleased to announce our popular Salon Series for Spring 2012. We will sponsor a series of special art events featuring concerts and lectures on the arts, all scheduled between 7:30 and 9 pm. The events will be held at the historic Turner House, home of the OCSFA, as part of our mission to be a resource for art and architecture.
Matt Tolentino and His Hot Five
The Centennial Celebration will begin with the first Salon Series of the spring, a performance by Matt Tolentino and His Hot Five Band (Matt is the leader of Singapore Slingers) on Thursday, February 23. The doors of Turner House will open at 7:30 p.m. for an evening of music, wine and heavy hor d’oeuvres.
Silent Cinema: Highlights of the Era
On Thursday, March 29, Jim Reid, consultant for the Texas Theater and the McKinney Performing Arts Center will present a small selection of his private collection of silent cinema projection on 16mm film, each made from the original negatives. The films will be accompanied by noted Pianist Robert Edwards, a resident of Kessler Park, who has graced the stage of Turner House on numerous occasions.
Looking Back to See Ahead
On Thursday, April 26, Dallas landscape architect and urban planner, Kevin Sloan will present an illustrated discussion which considers the architecture, design and urban planning around 1912 and how we can project into the future. Sloan will consider what Dallas and Oak Cliff are doing to improve our city and what residents can do to improve their own landscaping and participate in urban planning.
Turner House is located at 401 N. Rosemont, 75208. The presentations will all take place between 7:30 and 9 pm. Refreshments will be served. Tickets will be $20 for non-members and $15 for OCSFA members and students.

The Oak Cliff Society of Fine Arts will hold its annual Wine & Art Fundraiser on Saturday, September 24th. The theme of this year’s fundraiser is Women Artists of the Texas Centennial. Previous exhibits have focused on male artists, despite the fact that women made up over half of the participants in the landmark 1936 Texas Centennial art exhibit.
Patrons will get a chance to enjoy rarely seen images of artwork from this underexposed group of Texas artists such as Coreen Mary Spellman, Florence McClung, May Schow, and Lura Ann Taylor.
Attendees will enjoy live music, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and a variety of fine wines. Tickets will be $50 to attend the event (7PM), and $75 for the event plus the gallery talk (6PM) by Dr. Jack Davis, Professor of Art from the University of North Texas.
