And few things make us lust — or at least covet — more than a sexy ride … whether it’s on wheels or in our living room. ilume Gallerie is bringing back one of its hottest exhibits with Objects of Desire II, an intoxicating collection of furnishings like chairs, desks, lamps and screens — objects of art that are also functional. There’s an opening night
reception on Friday.

Bass Performance Hall, 525 Commerce St.,
Fort Worth, Oct. 19–21 and Music Hall at Fair Park
