Glasstire goes on location in Houston and Dallas with appearances by artists Michelle Rawlings and Patrick Renner, and a cameo by Parsnip. This time, if you just read the list, you’re going to miss something.

2. Jeff Gibbons and Gregory Ruppe
Epitome Institute, San Antonio
March 14 – April 25, 2015
Collaborations between artists Jeff Gibbons and Gregory Ruppe inspired by a laundry list of incongruous themes: the writings of Philip K. Dick, the Kübler-Ross model, ghosting, Henri Bergson’s concept of duration, and a grocery store lobster tank.

A thousand porcelain tentacles sanded, drilled, glazed, fired, and stuck to the walls. Next, they will travel to the almost as weirdly named Alaskan Robotics Gallery in Juneau, Alaska in May.
