Fake, fake, fake, fake and Nancy Rubins’ shiny canoes in this week’s top art events in Texas. Yes!


1. Raychael Stine: Chuparrosa
Art Palace, Houston
February 20 – March 27
New paintings by Albuquerque-based artist Raychael Stine, whose clever works layers and remixes prim abstract gestures like sushi plates, representations of animals, and trompe l’oeil tricks.



2. Clare Benson: The Shepherd’s Daughter
Texas Woman’s University East Gallery, Denton
February 11 – March 13
Photography by Clare Benson, who stages scenes reinserting herself into the rugged landscapes her father’s hunting recalled from her childhood.

3. Adam Neese: Terra Incognita

February 12 – March 26, 2015
Opening: February 26, 2015 | 7–10 pm

4. Wildly Strange: The Photographs of Ralph Eugene Meatyard
Blanton Museum of Art, Austin
March 7 – June 21

Meatyards’s haunting photographs of masked figures in the  deteriorating Southern landscape (some never before seen!), along with his lesser-known portraits of blurry American writers. Curated  from from the UT Ransom Center’s collection by Jessica S. McDonald.
