Denise Sacha Ramnarine: Edge of Dreams

Sala Diaz

October 17 through December 7, 2014

Ramnarine creates illusionistic, funny and fictitious spaces. Her paintings indulge her nostalgia for the kitsch-chaos of the Caribbean (where she was born and raised) and bring the magic of “longtime ago” into everyday spaces, banishing the sometimes sterility of the first-world lifestyle.  

Antonio Serna: Some Kind of Primitive

Bihl Haus Arts

October 24 through December 13, 2014

Large paintings that oscillate between traditionally rendered figures and stenciled monolithic forms; antiquated dinosaur illustrations are overlaid with silhouettes of pixelated buildings that reference early videogame graphics.

Jheri Evans

K23 Gallery

November 14 through December 14, 2014

The first Texas exhibition for this now-Austin-based artist/designer/blogger/musician. From the press release: “By emphasizing aesthetics, Evans absorbs the tradition of remembrance art into daily practice.”

Richard Mogas: Embracing Impermanence

REM gallery

November 1 through December 19, 2014

Long-time artist and architect Mogas’ work is inspired by the “hard scrabble, cactus and rattlesnake” life in South Texas with his father. There are also a few paintings of women representing his “continuing attempts to understand them and their amazing powers.”

John Riddy: Palermo

Lawrence Markey

November 14 through December 19, 2014

Developed over three years starting in 2011, Riddy’s Palermo emerges from a process of observation both intuitive and deliberate. Slow and considered walks through the city allowed patterns of change, in light, texture, and human activity, to emerge over time and inform his compositions.

Randall Anderson: Studies for Siding

Epitome Institute

November 15 through December 28, 2014

Anderson says: “Using an auto-ethnographic approach to personal history as a window on the world, my new work explores marginal contexts, like storage facilities, highways, trailer parks, and transitional visual information, as in the information that you may pass on a street but not openly acknowledge.”

Memory & Forgetting: Part One


November 6 through December 31, 2014

Seven local and international artists will present works addressing the concepts of memory and forgetting: Gary Sweeney, Steve Reynolds, Cathy Cunningham-Little, Zoe Berg, Bodo Korsig, Kay Whitney, Sebastian J. Stoddart. (Part two opens on February 5.)

Intimate Impressionism from the National Gallery of Art

McNay Art Museum

70 paintings from the era when "avant-garde" and "plein-air" went together. Organized by the National Gallery of Art and drawn from the collections of Ailsa Mellon Bruce, her brother Paul Mellon, and others. See it now, else you'll have to stop in San Francisco, Seattle, Rome or Tokyo!

Intense and Fragile
