Here's what's on tap this week that we noticed. But keep in mind, we miss things. If there is something you are looking forward to, feel free to mention it in the comments.
Jane Alexander, Bom Boys (detail), 1998, fiberglas sculptures, found clothing and fiberboard squares, dimensions variable
Jane Alexander: Surveys (from the Cape of Good Hope) at the CAMH, opening reception 7 pm, Friday, August 10. I know nothing about this artist, but just looking at the images that pop up when you type "Jane Alexander artist" into Google make me really want to see this show!
Raul Gonzalez, Drummers, pen and marker on paper, 11" x 14", 2012
Raul Gonzalez's farewell exhibit at Jack Meier Gallery, 6:30 pm on Friday, August 10th. Raul Gonzalez, whose work we've praised in the past, is leaving for San Antonio to go to grad school (because as everybody knows, you can't be areal artist without an MBA). See his art before he goes!
Orna Feinstein, Multi-librium, leftover gallery announcement postcards, 2012
Hear Orna Feinstein talk at Box 13, 2 pm, Saturday, August 11. Her Box 13 installation Multi-librium recycles leftover postcards from galleries and museums into baroque patterns on the floor. Go and ask her what she plans to do now that everyone's switched over to email announcements?
Emily Sloan as Carrie Nation at the Lone Star Performance Explosion (photo by Dean Liscum)
Emily Sloan reprises her hit portrayal of Carrie Nation at Darke Gallery, 2 to 4 pm, Saturday, August 11. You must see this if only for the eyebrows, which Sloan borrowed from Nestor Topchy.
