The Big Show, Lawndale Art Center’s annual open-call, juried exhibition, is always a great way to get a glimpse of the up-and-comers in the Houston art scene. For this year’s exhibition, which opened July 10, a total of 76 works by 62 artists were selected from 972 works submitted by 355 artists. But the opening receptions for The Big Show are notoriously packed and certainly not the best way to spend time with the art or to meet the artists.

Fortunately, Lawndale also puts on “The Big Slide Show,” during which The Big Show artists give short, informal presentations about their work. Tonight and tomorrow night, beginning at 6pm, is the chance to meet the artists and get a closer look at their work. Here is the schedule of the presentations:
