"Damaged Romanticism: A Mirror of Modern Emotion"
"Damaged Romanticism: A Mirror of Modern Emotion" explores stubborn optimism. The exhibit features the work of 15 international artists who spin the negative into positive. In Mary McCleary's Nazi Pets, a lion and several dogs bask in the sun on a lush hillside. In Angelo Filomeno's Arcanum: Rolling Shit, a beetle's dung trail is formed with a gold thread and brown beads. And in Annee Olofsson's video Evil Eye, a paralyzed woman stares out from the screen as her hopeful thoughts are voiced over. See work by these and 12 other artists from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays. Through November 15. Blaffer Gallery, 120 Fine Arts Building, University of Houston. For information, call 713-743-9530 or visit www.blaffergallery.org. Free.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Starts: Sept. 13. Continues through Nov. 15, 2008
