Houston Art Exhibits

Every few months, I take time to visit the wonderful museums and art galleries
around Houston area.  It's a time to take stock of what is going on in the
art world.

Contemporary Art Museum:  ANGEL OTERO: EVERYTHING AND NOTHING
On View: December 10, 2016 – March 19, 2017
Angel Otero: Everything and Nothing is Otero’s first survey exhibition and encompasses nearly a decade of his painting and sculpture.

Two Centuries of American Still-Life Painting: The Frank and Michelle Hevrdejs Collection 
Through 


Holy Barbarians: Beat Culture on the West Coast:  This exhibition brings together a selection of California artists who emerged following the Second World War and took advantage of the region’s permissive atmosphere to help create a thriving new art scene. Artists like John Altoon, Wallace Berman, Bruce Conner, Jay DeFeo, George Herms, and Edward Kienholz were part of a “Beat” generation, whose social critiques would eventually be incorporated into the counterculture and social protest movements that shaped the second half of the 20th century.
