Pan Recommends for the week of August 16 through August 22

It's Thursday, and that means that Pan has recommendations for the weekend and beyond for you. Here are a few things that caught our eye.

LAYOVER: Houston Airport System Portable Artwork Collection at Space 125 Gallery, 5:30 to 7:30 Thursday, August 16. This show has been open for a while, but tonight is the official reception for it. This is art from the Houston Airport System. It includes work by many of our favorite local artists, including Karin Broker, Jeff Forster, Jonathan Leach, Randy Twaddle and more!

Word Around Town wraps up this week with readings tonight (8 pm) at Secret Word Cafe, tomorrow (8 pm) at the Ripley-Baker Neighborhood Center and Saturday (8 pm) at Dean's Credit Clothing. Literary events are usually outside our bailiwick, but Dean Liscum is live-blogging WAT this year, and Dean's one of us.

Diverse Works garage sale, Friday, August 17, 9 am - 5 pm and Saturday, August 18, 9 am - 12 pm. I'm sure all of you have heard the blessed news that Diverse Works is moving to Midtown (not to the proposed Independent Arts Collaborative--at least, not yet). They've been in their current converted warehouse location for over a hundred years (roughly--I'm too lazy to look it up) and have acquired a bunch of crap they don't want to take with them. Now's your chance to own stuff that Diverse Works doesn't want anymore!

Experimental Eye at the Aurora Picture Show, curated by Kelly Sears, 8 pm, Saturday, August 18. Awesome animator Kelly Sears has put together this festival of short experimental animated movies, which includes one by one of our favorite cartoonists, Lilli Carré. Should be excellent!

These are what we're looking forward to--what about you? Please feel free to add events in the comments!
