By contrast, Tam Van Tran's "Psychonaut" is a little more direct. The exhibit is a showcase of the L.A.-based Tran's work since 2000. Known for mixing the organic with the mechanical, Tran uses natural materials such as beet juice to create his paintings, which are meditations on the natural world. This is the first major Houston exhibit for the up-and-coming Tran. Get "Psycho" through August 5.
Fri., May 12, 7-9 p.m.; May 13-Aug. 5
