The Goss-Michael Foundation recently opened the first Dallas solo exhibition of beloved street artist Marquis Duriel Lewis, better known as RETNA. The Los Angeles native veers away from his typical text-based work here (hence the exhibition being titled under his full name), experimenting with wildly colorful and abstract portraiture inspired by children. The exhibition, Dovetail Mortises & La Peluca Grande, was curated by Dallas’ Maxine Trowbridge. There are a few of those hieroglyphic-like pieces which RETNA is known for, but the show explores another side of the graffiti pro. It’s on view through November 9. The gallery is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
