Seeing Is Disbelieving

Kirk Hayes tricks and treats in James Gallery's final show


With "Kirk Hayes: Paintings," we come to a sad milestone in Houston's cultural history. When this show closes, so does the door of James Gallery, as Kathleen James and her husband, artist Gary Retherford, pack up to move to Arizona (no, not Phoenix). For 25 years, Kathleen has enriched the art scene here, not only with the artists that her original eye has brought to our attention, but also through her service on too-many-to-name institutional boards and through her passionate advocacy for Houston's continued cultural vitality. James Gallery will continue, albeit on a smaller scale, in its new home, but that's little consolation for the Bayou City.

Death to Smoochy? No, the pink rhino in Hayes's Begging Innocence doesn't really need its faux masking-tape bandages.
