Profiling spots around Dallas that will leave you and your date inspired

A Saturday morning at Valley House Gallery and Sculpture Garden & Blue Mesa Grill

Take a deep breath and your date’s hand for a relaxing stroll around the wooded paths of this sculpture-garden oasis designed by renowned architect Clarence Roy. The garden currently features expressive bronze figures from Charles Umlauf, painted steel wielded by David Hayes and other monumental works like a wooden Totem Pole that springs from the earth by Texas-based artist Mike Cunningham, whose works have also stood around town at the Anatole Hotel, Cistercian Chapel and Grapevine’s Liberty Plaza.

Step inside the Vogel family’s 1950’s home-turned-gallery and view the work of contemporary and 19th-20th century artists. Currently on view through July 3, the creamy landscapes of commonplace middle-America from artist Brian Cobble.
