New Mexico artist Larry Bob Phillips brings his oversize, irregularly shaped paintings to Art League Houston in an exhibit called “Salon Style.” The black-and-white creations are reinterpretations of premodern paintings. Press materials tell us the works blend traditional imagery with contemporary graphic trends. Translation: While the subject matter might be seen in a traditional painting, the style is closer to linear graphic design. One shows a cowboy on a horse with a vista of mountains behind him. It’s all done in a pattern of black-and-white lines that form not an outline but a loose impression of the figures. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 11 a.m .to 5 p.m .Saturdays. Through August 31. 1953 Montrose. For information, call 713-523-9530 or visit www.artleaguehouston.org. Free.
Mondays-Saturdays. Starts: July 20. Continues through Aug. 31, 2012
