Absolutely a stunning exhibition of John Wilcox's work from the late 80's. This exhibition continues a long history of knock out exhibitions at Barry Whistlery Gallery proving that his gallery is at the top of the best in Texas.

McClain Gallery and Bernar Venet

Stopped by McClain Gallery on Saturday afternoon and to my surprise a Bernar Venet in front of my parking space. Inside the gallery was a retrospective of Norman Bluhm. As well, there was a small gallery space with just Venet's work.

Drove over to Hermann Park, way way to crowded, to see Venet's work scattered around the park. I wish I had more time to spent visiting this work.

Love this place!

Visited Bill Davenport's Junk Shop on Saturday afternoon. Always a stop when I visit the galleries in Houston.

Bill's Giant Mushrooms in the Heights.
