Extroverted photographer Genevieve Gaignard is not afraid to strike a pose, but the Los Angeles-based performance artist takes it a step further, turning familiar iconography into uncomfortable vignettes through costumes, props and a heaping load of attitude. In one large-format print, she is a halo-adorned goddess of the bubble bath, in another she channels her inner Joan Crawford and there she stands in a third scene, wearing lavender slacks against a purple house and holding onto an enormous bin of cheese balls as she stares back at the viewer. "In Passing" is Gaignard's first solo exhibit outside California and it's paired with a best-of-the-best juried show titled "Learning Curve 10," featuring provocative works by the talented students at Houston Center for Photography. There's an opening reception from 5:30 to 8 p.m. September 8, with an artist talk at 6 p.m. Continuing 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. September 8 through October 22. For information, call 713-529-4755 or visit Free.
