The show, the first major Dalí exhibit in Houston in more than a decade, includes paintings, etchings and rarely seen tapestries (the famous Argus Tapestry is among them). Argillet, who summered at the Dalí home as a young girl, says the work the two men produced remains as provocative and profound as ever. She'll be present at the show's opening, discussing the work and her personal recollections of her father and the artist (including a story that Dalí once started an etching of Medusa by throwing a dead, acid-dipped octopus onto a copper plate). Opening reception is 6 to 8 p.m. January 22. Regular viewing hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, noon to 6 p.m. Sundays. Through January 31. Off the Wall Gallery, 5015 Westheimer.
