    Co-Lab Projects: Highs and Lo-Fi’s

    This is an exhibition by Adrian Armstrong, exploring the topic of mental health in African-American culture, encompassing the artist's personal struggles and a discussion about why mental health is often a taboo topic in the culture he was raised in.

    Davis Gallery: Circadian Buzz

    This is one extensive group exhibit focused on repetition and daily practice, for which each of the participating artists has created a new work or carefully chosen a work from the past. And we mean, these are some of the most fascinating artists who ever breathed our city's air – Steve Brudniak, Malou Flato, Denise M. Fulton, Jan Heaton, David Leonard, Randall Reid, Caprice Pierucci, John Sager, Chun Hui Pak, and many more. So, even if visiting galleries isn't part of your, ah, daily practice, you'll be well rewarded by checking out Davis Gallery's array of visual creations.
    Through Aug. 31

    Recspec Gallery: The Nude Show

    That excellent Austin gallery, gone missing since the old Flatbed World HQ closed months ago? It's popping up at MOHA with a new show about "nude, as a color, as its cultural perception finally shifts away from the upsetting pinky Band-aid and crayon-box infamy." Curated by Holly Bobisuthi (who is, did you know, the most exciting jewelry maker in this city if not the entire goddam state) and featuring diverse work by artists from all over the country (and Spain), this is an exhibition sure to open wide in delight any previously jaded eyes.
    Through Aug. 31

    Yard Dog: Art from the Heart & Medulla Oblongata

    Bruce Lee Webb of Waxahachie, Texas, is a folk art gallerist and an antique dealer and in his travels he collects vintage cotton sacks and journal paper on which he then paints and draws. That's putting it mildly. That's without saying, "Whoa, damn, don't miss this terrific show at Randy Franklin's excellent gallery there on South Congress." Need we remind you, it was Webb's collection that was responsible for the most amazing show in the too-brief history of the gallery of Domy Books back in the day? Recommended, recommended, recommended.
