2. Katrina Moorhead: seapinksea
Inman Gallery (Houston)
March 8 – April 27

A show of new works by artist Katrina Moorhead. From the gallery: “Sea pink is a hardy, low-slung perennial native to the UK coastline. Persevering through brackish wind and meager soil, the otherwise unassuming plant produces bright pink blossoms in late spring. It was a fixture of Katrina Moorhead’s early life, and serves as a point of departure for her current exhibition, seapinksea.”

5. Alex Goss: Round 10: My Little Runaway
Cage Match Project (Austin)
March 11 – May 19

A show of works by Houston artist Alex Goss. “By animating custom made, six-fingered latex gloves, My Little Runaway fantasizes on an unrequited relationship with a forbidden and lost appendage. A single, motor-driven belt threads each spectral hand together; flopping and flailing, they rotate in their own eccentric paths within the cycle of motion.”
