“The Gun Show”
Once a year, the Art Car Museum holds an open-call exhibit. This year’s event, “The Gun Show,” centers on firearms. Selecting a rather polarizing topic isn’t really a surprise, since the museum regularly pushes the envelope with its shows. A combination of emerging and professional (and local and national) artists on both sides of the issue have contributed works to the exhibit, including a painting showing a man, rifle in hand, sitting in what seems to be a living room, spent shells surrounding his feet. The piece, by Houston artist Peter Daniel Bernal, is titled The Defender.
There’s an opening reception with many of the artists at 7 p.m. December 7. Regular gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays. Through February 21. 140 Heights. For information, call 713-861-5526 or visit artcarmuseum.com. Free.
Wednesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Starts: Dec. 7. Continues through Feb. 21, 2013
