Sculpture Month Houston
is a two-for-one this year, with Eisele organizing the “dark, somber and somewhat ponderous” show at SITE Gallery and a more lighthearted show at Artscan titled “SNARE,” with a talking fish, an alien flower garden and a monster under the stairs. Don’t miss the opener from 6 to 9 p.m. October 21 at SITE Houston, then come back to fully appreciate the visual and auditory experience.
Noon to 6 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays, SITE Gallery Houston, 1502 Sawyer.
11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays, Artscan Gallery, 1836 Richmond.
October 21 through December 2. For information, call 713-807-1836 or visit sculpturemonthhouston.org
We can’t get enough of the spooky, eerie silos over at Sawyer Yards, with their honeycomb of towers, moody lighting and echoing sound. It’s also the perfect space for “Tensile Strength,” a gizmo-heavy exhibit with local heavy hitters (Patrick Renner, Tommy Gregory, Joe Havel) and a few out-of-town superstars. “There is an art star from Austin coming in, Laurie Frick; she is a data artist,” says Volker Eisele, owner and director of Rudolph Blume Fine Art / Artscan Gallery, about the data-driven artist.
