Pan Recommends for the week of May 16 to May 22

Dean Liscum & Robert Boyd

There's a lot going on art-wise in Houston this weekend. Here's some of what we're interested in checking out.


Clarissa Tossin, Brasília by Foot, 2009. Archival inkjet on cotton paper. 20 in. x 30 in.

Study for a Landscape by Clarissa Tossin at Sicardi Gallery, 6 pm (with an artist talk on Monday at 7 pm). Keep the International Festival's Brazil theme going with former Core fellow Clarissa Tossin's work. (Also, don't forget to check out her Milam Street window installations.)


Delio Delgado, Untitled #1, Mixed media print, 13” x 13”, 2011

The boat is a floating piece of space featuring Charles Campbell, Delio Delgado, Erika DeFreitas, Dionne Simpson and Stacey Tyrrell at the Houston Museum of African American Culture, 6:30 pm. Work by Canadian artists of Caribbean descent. Frater and the HMAAC continue to deliver. Miss this and miss out.

Former Houston Chronicle art critic Devon Britt-Darby can't stop explaining art to us--even his own art.

Lots of stuff at the Art League starting at 6 pm, including:
  • Cocomirie by Adela Andea in collaboration with Markus Cone and Ian Travis, who will be doing a musical performance at the opening (artist talk at 6:30 and performance at 7:15)
  • Art Criticism and Reporting by Devon Britt-Darby (artist talk at 7 pm)
  • New Work by Giovanni Valderas (artist talk at 6:15)
It's another Jenny Ash and company Art League orgy. Prepare to be overwhelmed.

Andy Coolquitt, Red Blue Stick (detail), 2011, lighters, acrylic rod, epoxy

andy coolquitt: attainable excellence at the Blaffer Art Museum, 6 pm. This Austin artist has shot up to the big time with his grungy assemblages of weird old crap (including crackhead's plastic lighters). Come prepared to be slightly perplexed and mighty intrigued.

Jeffrey Dell knows what the public likes!

Jeffrey Dell: Follies and Linda Post: Igvonne at Art Palace, 6 pm. I have two words for the two shows at Art Palace: Iggy and Cake.


Incorpus Articum by Nestor Topchy 7 to 10 p.m.  at George H. Lewis and Sons Funeral Directors, 1010 Bering Drive. Art, embalming fluid, alcohol and Nestor Topchy. Bring it!

This is what Kerry Adams showed at the Spacetaker ARC Gallery in 2011

Box 13 Artspace presents:
  • Darcy Rosenberger and Guillaume Gelot show D+G, a “festivitiy of love.”
  • Kerry Adams’ Reality of Memories 
  • Ann Wood’s Pyre
  • Shelby Shadwell’s, A Universal Picture
from 7 to 9 pm. Love, memories, a pyre (or two) and drawings of dead cockroaches...and Topchy thought he'd have a lock on morbidity this Saturday night.
