Over the last few weeks I have...

visited several exhibitions.

That Thing That Makes Vines Prefer to Cling, new paintings by David Aylesworth
Holly Johnson Gallery
May 8 - June 12

This is the knock-out exhibition that should not be missed. Seeing this exhibition was like seeing a great play, a phenomenal movie, or a great novel. My favorite painting was "Words Poetic (remix)".

Exquisite Creatures 2: The Mermaid & Octopus
Norwood Flynn Gallery
May 8 - May 22
This exhibition hosted a packed house for the reception. This was a very uneven show in quality, however what do I know. Staying on the theme from the Holly Johnson exhibition above - this exhibition was like seeing a bad comedy.

Andrea Rosenberg, The Printed Image
April 22 - May 29
Although not my favorite of Andrea's work the exhibition doesn't disappoint and as usual Barry puts other galleries to shame when it comes to installing his exhibitions.

Billy Hassell, Distances
Leticia Gomez, This is Where You Live, This is Where I Live, This is Where We Live
Gabriel Dawe, Project Room Installation
May 8 - June 12
When I first became interested in the local arts in the early 90's Billy Hassell was one of the first artist's work that I was attracted to. Well, it is now 2010 and his work hasn't changed - well, maybe he hasn't grown.
Leticia Gomez - what a surprise. Loved her installation and her drawings are confounding. This is an exhibition that should not be missed.

Celia Munoz, Mutha's Day Special
Eddy Rawlinson, Outlaw Glory
May 15 - June 19

American Moderns on Paper: Masterworks from the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art
Amon Carter Museum
February 27 – May 30
