Artist Hollis Cooper, who now works out of Los Angeles, grew up in Houston. She considered a career in architecture but changed her mind. I didnt want to build anything that had to stand up, she says. Coopers installation Working Space doesnt stand up instead, its made up of paint sprawled directly on the walls of the Lawndale Art Center, boasting vivid colors and abstract shapes. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays; noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays. Through March 12. 4912 Main. For information, call 713-528-5858 or visit www.lawndaleartcenter.org. Free.
