A surprising, recently minted arrival in the Design District opens a window on the spiritually suffused collecting field of Aboriginal art. Owner Saher Saman melds a passion for painting by the indigenous people Down Under with a degree from the Art Institute of Chicago and decades in the ad and film business, plus a stint as a gallerist in Santa Fe. Searching for a metropolis where “curiosity” and engagement about art was intense, Saman landed in Dallas, where his Dragon Street digs promise to present heavily collected aboriginal talents, including the late Minnie Pwerle alongside contemporary voices such as photographer Nathalie Daoust, whose series spans from Tokyo’s seamy love hotels to dreamy nudes frolicking in the Alps. 1507 Dragon St., 972.803.1184; readcontemporary.com.
