Last Chance - July 5 through 27, 2014
Obermayr (1923-2009) was an artist, writer and educator active in Idaho, and later British Columbia, from the mid-20th century until the time of her death. A former chair of the art department at Idaho State University, she wrote the epic poem The Book of Noah’s Wife in 2005. This show features her edition of 16 wry and raucous linocut prints of women in the Bible, from 1993-2003.
Last Chance - May 10 through July 31, 2014

Read more about her biography, her work, and her legacy at Rice here.

July 12 through August 16, 2014
Galveston-based Nick Barbee and Dallas-based CJ Davis share an aesthetic sensibility "rooted in material exploration, a grandmother, a visual vocabulary based in humor and everyday objects, big butts and prominent foreheads. Some of this is genetic." [This just in: Barbee and Davis are also first cousins!]
July 11 through August 16, 2014
July 18 through August 16, 2014
The grand opening of Houston's newest artist-run commercial gallery EVERYONE WILL BE THERE FOOD TRUCKS CHAMPAGNE GAAAAH!!! Come see new works by Alika Herreshoff, Angel Oloshove, Michelle Rawlings, James Scheuren and Carlos Rosales-Silva, and congratulate impresario Jon Hopson on his new project.
March 16 through August 17, 2014
This umbrella exhibition features six solo exhibitions by Democracia, Adel Abidin, Hito Steyerl, Mohammed Al-Shammarey, Prince Varughese Thomas, and Maura Sheehan. Dealing with the proliferation of images and the devices that record them. In conjunction with FotoFest 2014.
July 11 through August 22, 2014
A site-specific, collaborative installation by The Center for Imaginative Cartography & Research, the brainchild of Houston-based artists Emily Halbardier and Erik Sultzer. They're bringing in construction waste and other "readily available detritus" from the Montrose and making stuff from it -- hooray for ephemeral abject trash art!!
July 10 through August 26, 2014
Prints produced at the venerable Barcelona press Polígrafa. Featuring prints by artists Carlos Cruz-Diez, León Ferrari, Guillermo Kuitca, Nelson Leirner, Jorge Macchi, Nicolás Paris, Liliana Porter, and Luis Tomasello. And, uh, this guy.
July 24 through August 29, 2014
This is such a goofy premise (artworks that "could be viewed on a trip through Texas, traveling west on I-10"); and it's such an odd hodgepodge of artists (Vachu Chilakamarri, Meredith “Butch” Jack, Kenny Lantz, Steve Neves, Katie Pell and George Zupp) that it might just be fantastic. We're intrigued.
June 1 through August 30, 2014
DiMattio is known for her iconoclastic personal style and her keen instinct for materials, particuarly domestic goods (her last show at her gallery was titled "Table Setting and Flower Arranging"). This is her first solo museum show and first time to exhibit in Texas.
June 28 through August 31, 2014
Objects from the Menil Collection selected and installed by NY-based artist Haim Steinbach. We pretty much guarantee there will be things you had no idea they had. A fun, invigorating show. Also: we would have a much better image if the Menil allowed photography in their galleries. Not-so-subtle hint, Menil.
June 1 through September 6, 2014
Three video installations by the South African artist that examine the world of child performers. Before there was Lindsey Lohan, tabloid cash cow, there was Lindsey Lohan, unknown little girl auditioning for a camera. Shot in Los Angeles, Mumbai and Lagos.
July 12 through September 6, 2014
June 12 through September 6, 2014
May 31 through September 7, 2014
Neatly coinciding with Charles James: Beyond Fashion at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Menil's version explores the commissions, both clothes and furniture, that James received from the de Menils. His plush velvet furnishings (including this settee) were in stark contrast to the hard-edged minimalism of their Philip Johnson-designed home in River Oaks. Let the sartorial saturnalia begin!
June 15 through September 14, 2014
Here you go, urban planning buffs and historical architectural hand-wringers: "At the heart of the show are compelling views of Paris both before and after many of its historic neighborhoods were razed to make way for broad boulevards, monumental buildings and manicured parks."
May 2 through September 14, 2014
June 27 through September 21, 2014
New video works Andrea Geyer, Camille Henrot, Laure Prouvost, and A. L. Steiner. The lineup is a who's who of recently lauded video artists (who also all happen to be women): Prouvost won the 2013 Turner Prize; Henrot won a Silver Lion award as the most promising young artist at the 2013 Venice Biennial; Geyer was a recent MoMA resident; and Hyperallergic said that Steiner's piece in this year's Whitney Biennial was "one of the few pieces that pulls you in with a seductive complexity." Overheated star machine claptrap, or something genuinely worth spending your time on? We're betting on the latter, at least for some of these works.
June 20 through October 1, 2014
Works by Houston's "earlier painters" installed in various conference rooms throughout city hall. Included are works by David Adickes, John Biggers, Jack Boynton, Roylin Bradley, Lamar Briggs, Emma Richardson Cherry, Bill Condon, Diedre Curnell, Charles Criner, Don Edelman, Frank Freed, Henri Gadbois, Karl Hall, Dorothy Hood, Otis Huband, Earlie Hudnall, Grace Spaulding John, Paul Maxwell, Leila McConnell, William McKenna, Herb Mears, Adrienne Rison, E.M. “Buck” Schiwetz, Charles Schorre, Chester Snowden, Earl Staley, Richard Stout, Stella Sullivan, Anthony Thibodeaux, and Dick Wray. (And no, we're not sure about the apostrophe in the title either.)
July 18 through October 8, 2014
Part of the resurging interest in midcentury Texas art (witness the new book on the subject from UT Press), this exhibit includes Featured works by Ruth Pershing Uhler, Richard Stout, Bror Utter, Lowell Collins, and Charles T. Williams, among others.
February 28, 2014 through January 10, 2015
The 2014 mural at Lawndale Art Center will feature Otabenga Jones & Associates. This project will be the fourth mural at Lawndale Art Center. In addition to the mural at Lawndale there will be a series of adjacent programs, kicking off a year-long commitment to health education. Programs will include cooking classes, a foraging workshop, an urban gardening workshop and a line of mass produced lunchboxes that will be made available to the public.
