    Bale Creek Allen: Works from the Nineties

    The man behind the gallery puts himself inside the gallery, in its front rooms this time, with a collection of his compelling creations from the 1990s. Is this a good idea? Tell you what: Since only the best of any other artists he might show can match Allen's skill, ingenuity, and stunning sense of the-ordinary-turned-unique, this exhibition is a great idea.

    Northern-Southern: House Plants

    Brad Tucker, for the first solo show in his hometown of Austin in more than a decade, presents a suite of shaped canvas that lives on the walls like sentient plants, less tamed than coaxed. These paintings are domestic-sized, expanding the spaces around them, nourishing the air of the room, bringing a colorful minimalism to this intimate gallery. "Modernist but winking, folky yet sophisticated, kind, exact, unique, and warm."
