All Grown Up

The new Lawndale is a great space for showing art

In the other half of the gallery is Ellen Frances Tuchman's "Chapel Chromatica." The less said here, the better. The work is craftsy and decorative, which both can be really good things, but not in this case. Tuchman is trying to make panels of Mylar with tiny decorative patterns made of rhinestones and beads feel, well, arty. Full-on craftsy would have been much better.

Lawndale may have a glossy new space, but it's still offering artists -- young, old, Houstonian, Texan and otherwise -- a place to experiment. Sometimes stuff works out, sometimes it doesn't. And, well, there's always cold beer at the openings.
