    As some of you may know, we recently closed the doors on our previous gallery location (Reflection Fine Art) and opened up a new space Samuel Lynne Galleries - 21st Century Art on Dragon Street (Dallas' version of Canyon Road in Santa Fe). After 4 successful years at the old location, my father was fortunate enough to partner with Philip Romano (owner of Eatzi's, Romano's Macaroni Grill, Nick & Sams, etc.) who is also an amazing artist!

    Well anyways, we had our Grand Opening last Thursday and Friday nights. Due to all the crap I've been going through with my health I never got to see the gallery in it's beginning stages (they completely gutted and renovated an 11,000+ sq. ft. warehouse). I decided to just wait it out and see it in all it's glory on opening night. And HOLY COW I was completely stunned - I could not have dreamed of anything better. Seriously, if any of y'all live in Dallas or come to visit you've got to check this place out!!! (The art is unbelievable btw - we actually purchased a piece of our own on Friday by the very talented Ray Phillips! I'll post a pic soon...)

    Ok so back to my original post. We've been getting a ton of press in relation to the Grand Opening, but I must say this is my fav article so far Really cute write-up in the Dallas Daily Candy...

    "A New Vision" Samuel Lynne Galleries Opens

        Aaaww Jaime - how cute is your dad. And I love that article. I didn't know the gallery was named after you. Too cool!!

        resulting in the sort of culture shock your lazy ass needs.

        So peel off those sweatpants.

        Your bum will thank you.

        That's my fav part of the article....too funny!

          haha, yes - that's what made me love this article so much. Totally cheeky

          Yeah, it's pretty cool seeing my name everywhere now - lol Course, they still didn't spell my first name right but no one ever seems to get both correct so I'll take the middle name for now

          I'm officially going by "Jaime Lynne" in public now (though I honestly don't care if ppl call me Jaime ). Pretty funny since I started that here! I never went by my first and middle name before. But it ends up working out perfectly since Martin's last name is Lopez and my name would be "Hi-me Lopez" (and I live in Oak Cliff lol)... so yeah... it will be Jaime Lynne Lopez

              Wait- you pronounce Jaime "hi-me?"

              Cute article- congrats on the opening. That must be exciting.
              Happily married since 2008

                lol, sorry I guess I should explain that - J-A-I-M-E in Spanish is strictly a guy's name, and I live in a heavily populated Hispanic area of town. And they pronounce it "Hi-me"... when I was in HS I used to get all the tuxedo ads in the mail instead of the promdress ones So you can only imagine what I'd go through being Jaime Lopez... I imagine myself at the DMV or something and them calling out "Hi-me Lopez"... suffice it to say they would NOT expect me - a white girl with freckles, blond hair and green eyes - to walk up So by adding in my middle name people will know I'm a girl... or that's what I'm hoping anyways! hahaha

                Thanks for the congrats!
