Art Mart Was a Shopper’s Paradise!

So many of our visitors did their early Christmas shopping (some admitted they were gifts to themselves!) at Art Mart.  We had a 30% increase in new artists so we had a nice blend of our old faves as well as fresh new creativity to spice up the selection.  Can’t wait until 2019!

    I offer my thanks and gratitude for everything Friends of the Bath House has done to make this first season [Dallas Cabaret Series & Festival in the Underground] to make this first season, not just possible, but a huge success and we look forward to our 2nd season.

    We are committed to bringing in only the highest quality Cabaret entertainment and doing our part to shine a light on the jewel that is the Bath House Cultural Center.

    Here’s to more music!!

    The Bath House has always held special memories for me, as a life-long lover of White Rock Lake, as I grew up here and returned upon retirement.  When I was a child, I squeezed between ill-fitting gates to play within its abandoned structure.  When I was a young boy, its veranda provided lessons in photographic perspective as well as fanning the flames of young love at sundown.

    The Friends are incredible volunteers who preserve a jewel of our area selflessly and too often without thanks. They represent the best of East Dallas.

    A Personal Story and Why I am one of the Friends of the BathHouse

    White Rock Lake is part of my earliest memories. I was born in Dallas and always lived not far from the lake. I fished and played there as a child, went to school parties at the old rock picnic shelter, twirled on the merry-go-round and slid down the slides. I played spin the bottle there as a young teen-ager and roasted hot dogs and watched the stars & moon shine on the waters.

  • Hope this becomes a regular event [in reference to the “Color Outside the Lines” event]. We had a wonderful time.

    Where is my favorite place to show and sell my art? The Bath House Cultural Center of course. The dedicated professional staff organizes/advertises the show. The Volunteers of the Friends of the Bath House support the artists throughout the entire show. I get to meet wonderful artists & see/buy their work. And our browsers and buyers are the best!
