Jill Moser: "Sixteen Street"
It may technically be fall, but it still feels summery inside Wade Wilson Gallery, currently home to "Sixteen Street," a collection of works on paper by Jill Moser. A painter and drawer who seeks to develop a "rendered visual language," Moser creates abstract but simple works, often a collection of graphic squiggles infused with bright shocks of color. They'd look just as nice on a living room wall as on that of MoMA, where they happen to hang - well, there and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago and other prestigious institutions. Moser likes to explore the interplay between lines and spaces, with results that are sometimes calm and beautiful, at other times bold and hectic. It's art that makes you think, but not too hard - just what you need in the weeks after Labor Day. 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturdays. Through October 24. 4411 Montrose. For information, call 713-521-2977 or visit www.wadewilsonart.com. Free.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Sept. 24. Continues through Oct. 24, 2009
