Well-timed for wedding season, there's a new exhibit in Denton dedicated to wedding dresses from the 19th century to the present day. "American Brides: Inspiration and Ingenuity" runs through Oct. 24 at the Greater Denton Arts Council's Patterson-Appleton Center for the Visual Arts, and features the changing styles of American brides, from a 1900s dress with a lace-choker collar to a beaded flapper dress from the 1920s to a 1980s satin confection with an explosion of organdy ruffles. More than 40 wedding gowns are on view in the free exhibit; most of the dresses are from the University of North Texas' Texas Fashion Collection.
