Michael Villarreal: OOMPH

Art Palace

September 5 - October 18, 2014

Tactile paintings blur one's ability to distinguish landscape from figure and movement from stillness. In a palette ranging from mouthwatering frosting to sallow drywall putty, his work polarizes the viewer between an accessible image and aloof painterly expression.  In the passages of Villarreal's work, lines become ravines, figures become mountains, at once delicate and hasty.

Fool's Gold: Katy Heinlein & Alika Herreshoff

Art Palace

September 5 - October 18, 2014

Two Houston artists share a common interest in simple forms with suggestive contours and keyed-up color, tempering the sublime with the slapstick comedy of spoonerisms, belches, and blank expressions.
