After last week's movie madness, this week is a bit slow in comparison. It's a good weekend to catch up on art you might have missed--or just go bowling.
This bacon bank was in last year's Annual Student Art Show
Annual Student Art Show at the
College of the Mainland Art Gallery, 6:30–8:30 pm. If you happen to live or work anywhere between Friendswood and Galveston, consider making a stop here and seeing what student artists are doing.
Chris Cascio: Color Sickness at the
EMERGEncy Room Gallery,
7–9 pm. I believe that this show will be very scarf oriented, if scarfs are your thing. Otherwise, just come see it because Chris Cascio rocks. (And to change the subject, The Emergency Room needs its own website--the Rice Visual and Dramatic Arts website is more boring than the DPS's!)
Henry Kaiser, Undersea Video from Antarctica + guitar
at 14 Pews, 7 pm Thursday and Friday. Kaiser is an underwater videographer for the U.S. Antarctic Program as well as a musician. He will be accompanied by Damon Smith, Sandy Ewen, David Dove and others.
Tara Locklear, Unbridled Royalty Necklace, 2011. Cement, reclaimed glass, sterling silver
featuring Kat Cole, Laritza Garcia, Tara Locklear and Chesley Williams at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft,
5:30–7 pm. This is a show of mostly jewelry. The work all incorporates some element of discarded found material.
Rahul Mitra, Sex and the City
A Conversation: Rahul Mitra and Catherine Anspon
at Hooks-Epstein Galleries. The prolific Mitra discusses his work, which is currently on view in his solo exhibit Race, Religion, Politics, Art and Sex at the end of the world.
