Exhibitions On View 
Butch Jack:  
Playing in the Sandbox, Too
November 17, 2017- January 7, 2018
O'Quinn Gallery
Essay by Pete Gershon

In his site-specific installations, Meredith "Butch" Jack constructs structural and sculptural vignettes from common materials. Playing in the Sandbox Too highlights the alternate use of those daily materials towards the same concerns of his more commercial works: small mysteries; personal loss; physical tension, imbalance, or peril; and mortality.
Layla Luna:  
I Saw Nobody Coming, So I Went Instead
November 17, 2017- January 7, 2018
Cavnar Gallery

With the mixed media works of I Saw Nobody Coming, So I Went Instead Layla Luna explores personal histories through personal collections. Building her own collections to document time and create stories in a pro-active manner Luna questions our reasoning for holding on to objects and creating our own collections and displays of those items; is it the object its self or the haunt of the memory tied to the object?
Lynn Randolph: Between Worlds
Curated by Susie Kalil
October 6, 2017- January 21, 2018
 
Between Worlds responds to Randolph's ongoing work with palliative care patients at MD Anderson Cancer Center. Comprised of approximately twenty drawings, these painstakingly rendered works deftly combine elements of the weird and scientific with acute psychological and metaphoric realism and builds bridges to the spiritual.
