Mequitta Ahuja: “Flowback”

Design is weaved into Mequitta Ahuja’s exhibit “Flowback.” The artist’s crayon drawings explore the relationships black women have with their hair — the love, hate, tangles, locks, fussing, fighting and showing off. Her works feature women with their heads tilted back so their extra-long ‘dos flow down the canvas. Each tress is textured, some with patterns resembling the night sky, outer space or foliage. A three-paneled piece called Loop depicts two women’s tresses — curly and straight — tangled together in a net of braids, highlighted strands and bursts of light. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays; noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays. Through January 10. Lawndale Art Center, 4912 Main. For information, call 713-528-5858 or visit Free.
Mondays-Saturdays. Starts: Nov. 21. Continues through Jan. 10, 2008
