Gregory Carter will lecture about his exhibit at the Midtown Art Center this Thursday, August 27th at 7 pm. Carter's paintings have blossomed in the past few years, integrating collaged sections of maps, patterns referencing European and African decoration, screened and painted photographs and an inspired sense of composition.
James Surls will be at the Lawndale Art Center at 6 pm Thursday to wax nostalgic about the 30th anniversary of the founding of Lawndale and the state of art in Houston today and yesterday. There will also be a reception at Barbara Davis Gallery where Surls' new exhibition, From 2009, is on display.
Both Carter and Surls had standing room only at their lectures, congrats y'all!!
