If you squint real hard it kinda sorta looks like a giant taco, but Benjamin Terry's Inverted Sunset has more of a nautical feel, with its colorfully-painted and enameled wood planks folded over into an eye-pleasing taco-esque sculpture. Pieces by this Denton-based artist are on view at Art League Houston in "Thingness." And if you weren't paranoid before, you will be soon. Over in the front gallery they've installed 250 surveillance cameras and, yes, the cameras do follow visitors as they walk through the space. "Speak of the Devil" addresses the invasive qualities of CCTV surveillance and is the brainchild of Iowa-based artist Edward Kelley. Running concurrently is an exploration into the ephemeral nature of memory in "Suspended Memory" by Houston artists Shane Allbritton and Peter Bernick-Allbritton. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays. June 9 through July 22. 1953 Montrose. For information, call 713-523-9530 or visit artleaguehouston.org. Free.
