Pan Recommends for the week of May 2 to May 8

Robert Boyd & Dean Liscum

Here are some but not all of the art events happening this weekend. Curious coincidence: there are three openings featuring artists named Regina or Regine (not to mention an artist named Reis, Portuguese for "king").


Regina Foster, 2, oil on canvas, 12 x 12 in

Ted Flicker and Regina Foster: Recent Works at Wade Wilson Art, 6–8 pm. Not your normal Wilson works: traditional sculptures of females paired with still lifes by two Santa Fe artists. (The video intro to Ted Flicker's website has to be seen to be believed.)


 art by Regina Agu

An Echo, A Trace by Regina Agu at Darke Gallery, 6-9 pm. Bring your brain. The work addresses contemporary cosmologies, futurism, and storytelling.

We don't know what art will be shown at Buffalo Bayou Brewing Co., but here's a video by Hilary Scullane called meaning-less
ALL IN FORMS: Group Show featuring Almendra Castillo, Rochelle Kornas, Yma Luis, Nikki Thornton and Hilary Scullane at the Buffalo Bayou Brewing Company, 6-9 pm. Five women artists explore dreamscapes, personal trials, social issues, and femininity. Newish venue, newish artists, good old art.

Julia Claire Wallace at the second Continuum Live Art Series back in December

Continuum Live Art Series, Closing Night at Avant Garden, 8 pm - 2 am. It will be everything you imagine and fear performance art will be...and then there's a party afterward. (See here, here, here and here for much more.)

Steve Brudniak piece that may or may not be in this show,

Steve Brudniak: The Science of Surrealism at Avis Frank Gallery, 6–8 pm. In case you're wondering what it would be like to live in the video game Myst (I'm dating myself), I suspect being surrounded by a bunch of Steve Brudniak objects would be a good approximation.


Harald Schmitz-Schmelzer, Diskos 7, 59 x 18 cm. I do't know if any of these "Diskos" pieces will be in No Paint, but I hope so! 

No Paint featuring Aldo Chaparro, August Muth, Mario Reis, Harald Schmitz-Schmelzer, Regine Schumann, and Hills Snyder at Gallery Sonja Roesch, 5–7 pm. Paintings without paint. Is this exhibition these artists' version of the emperor's new clothes? Come see for yourself.

Tuyet Ong-Barr, untitled 17, acrylic on canvas, 40"x 36" 

Tuyet Ong-Barr at d. m. allison, 6–8 pm. Get your Helen Frankenthaler/Sam Francis/color field fix with Tuyet Ong-Barr's paintings.

Not sure whose art this is, but I'm pretty sure it's going to be in the Joanna's upcoming show

Ana Villagomez, Dylan Roberts, and Miguel Martinez at the Joanna, 7–10 pm. To quote the Joanna "This show will be different from the others. It will be really really really good.” And if not, there's always beer for a small donation.

    In one post: Santa Fe style and neo Dada art.
    We are so fortunate to live in such a diverse artistic city.
