    Butridge Gallery: Finding Wholeness

    This collection of paintings by Alexandra Abbott explores a secret, magic world existing within the ordinary. Observe the voluptuous curves of a flower, the movement of clouds across a desert landscape, insects steadily and silently working, rock walls stacked by hands hundreds of years ago, and things so quiet they are hardly noticed.

    Pepe Cornado: Traces

    Austin-based artist Pepe Coronado brings together two bodies of print, both of which explore the ever-evolving nature of journeys and exchanges. The “Apertura” series comprises large black-and-white monotypes that explore spaces both transitory and evolving; the "Mapping" series points to the history of relations between the United States and the Dominican Republic as long, complicated, and in constant flux.
