If you asked the Houston art world where it sees itself in ten years, Future Present Series Vol. 2 would be Michael Kahlil Taylors answer. The curator/artist says the show includes work from a handful of young, emerging Houston artists that he feels are worth watching, including himself. Taylors carved, painted wood panels are part of the exhibition, along with work by artist Matt Messinger, who, according to Taylor, presents more powerful art with each show. Messingers Origin of the Species is a collage of newsprint, images of snakes, vinyl records and more overlaying each other with red scribbles adding the only color. And Lovie Olivia will present a series of paintings called Time Restraint; in one, tiny blue birds struggle to fly with timepieces around their necks. See these works along with those of Robert Hodge, Marc Newsome and Cynthia Coffield today.
Wednesdays-Fridays, 12-5 p.m. Starts: June 22. Continues through Aug. 25
