    Camiba Gallery: The Elementals

    Here's a stunning show of abstractions by Fort Worth-based artist Lee Albert Hill, with fresh works that "reflect the essential human spirit of mark-making in response to the invisible forces that inherently exist between the four natural elements: earth, water, air, and fire." We don't ultimately care what Hill chooses to reflect with his art, tbh; we just want to feast our awestruck eyes on the results for hours.

    Martha's Contemporary: Hokey Pokey + What You See Is What You Get

    Here's a two-person exhibition that features painting, installation, videography, and sculpture by Moll Brau and Wes Thompson. It's a deep dive into a pool of loneliness, triumph, and rebirth. It's a forest of mazes where fireflies provide the light. It's a show of creations from a pair of terrific, hardworking local artists and you don't want to miss it.
