Roberta Harris, Golden Steps, 2012, oil and mixed media on canvas, 70" x 60"
Roberta Harris: Recent Paintings and Works on Paper at the Contemporary Art Gallery at Houston Baptist University, 6 pm to 8 pm (on view through November 25). HBU's artistic profile has been on the rise, but I've never been out to see their gallery (have you?). This show by Roberta Harris seems like a good opportunity to make the trek out to Southwest Houston.
Debra Barrera, Skoda Favorit over Toroweap, 2012, graphite on paper, 28" x 18"
Debra Barrera: Kissing In Cars, Driving Alone at Moody Gallery, 6 pm to 8 pm (on view through November 21). Debra Barrera apparently leaves behind her trademark resin for a show of mostly drawings with some sculptural work.
Dario Robleto: The Boundary of Life is Quietly Crossed at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts at UH, 6 pm (reception at 5 pm). This multimedia lecture by Dario Robleto sounds like kind of a downer--the guy is obsessed with death! He's a very good speaker, so I anticipate that this will be pretty compelling.

Uriel Landeros: Houston We have a Problem at James Gallery, 2500 Summer St., Unit 212, 7 pm. I was talking to an AP reporter this morning about this show (really!) and said that if someone were putting on an art exhibit in town that was the pinnacle of human artistic achievement, literally the greatest art ever created, it wouldn't get the same publicity as Uriel Landeros's show. Sad, isn't it? While you're at Summer St., check out skeez181 & TKNY: Escondidas (in hiding) at Chuntaro Jones Studio. That show should be worth seeing.

David McClain and Russ Havard: Unpremeditated Natures at Gallery 1724, 8 pm (on view through January 26, 2013). Our favorite hair salon/art gallery returns with a new two-person show by Russ Havard and David McClain. This show features several Sunday afternoon "drawing salons."
