"Eileen Maxson: Orphans of Failure"
Eileen Maxson remembers the '90s in "Orphans of Failure." The exhibit features images salvaged, or made to look salvaged, from 1993 Ñ a year whose calendar, Maxson explains, mirrors the days and dates of 2010's calendar. "My Quantum Leap, Back to the Future fandom is saying that this is a cracked door, a chance for renewal," she says in her artist statement. The show is a mix of videos and images featuring relics of the past: 1993 calendar pages, VHS tapes, the Twin Towers, hard copies of pet photos (these days they're just posted on Flickr or FaceBook) and double-exposed images (a misprint that's long gone, thanks to digital cameras). There's an opening reception from 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday, March 13. Regular viewing hours are noon to 8 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturdays, and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sundays. Through May 6. Domy Books, 1709 Westheimer. For information, call 713-523-3669 or visit www.domystore.com. Free.
