    Camiba Gallery: Existencia

Bonus: The opening reception features videos of the artists discussing their practice and process.

    Davis Gallery: Bouff! The Big Tease

    New work by B. Shawn Cox is always a delight for the eyes (and a few other senses), and here the masterful painter and arch wit brings a bounty of pop philosophy with a tinge of irony (and much big hair) – inspired by lore, social identity narratives, and childhood memories of his West Texas roots. This show includes the artist's most recent explorations, including oil on fabric, paper cuts, folded paper, and digitally created lenticular collages.
