Dennis Gonzalez at the Grackle Gallery, 5.14.2016

Since retiring from teaching a couple of years ago, Oak Cliff Renaissance man Dennis Gonzalez has had more time to devote to his visual art, which -- like his music and poetry -- finds beauty in realms of spirituality and the subconscious. His new musical project, Ataraxia, teams him with bassist Drew Phelps and tablaist Jagath Lakpriya, and they'll be performing at Grackle Art Gallery at 4621 El Campo in Fort Worth on Saturday, May 14, in conjunction with the opening of a show of his works on paper. Ataraxia's not a firestorm like Gonzalez's trio with his sons, Yells At Eels. Instead, it's a quiet, spacious sound that will lend itself well to the intimate setting of the Grackle, where Linda Little and Matt Sacks are making good things happen. Here's some audio from Ataraxia's debut performance at the Benbrook Public Library a few weeks ago:
