Last Call For Art: Sherlock Holmes, Flappers & Edgy Art
It's your last chance to get your Sherlock Homes fix (a seven-percent solution, naturally) as the Alley Theatre's Summer Chills production of Sherlock Holmes and the Crucifer of Blood comes to a close.
Another stage production seeing its final curtain this week is Thoroughly Modern Millie at the Texas Repertory Theatre Company. The bouncy, Tony-winning Roaring Twenties musical was popular with crowds and had an extended run, but the show must go off this weekend. Tickets are $35, with senior discounts available; check here for details.
A whole lot of art shows are closing this weekend as summer ends, so here's a quick rundown. Click on the links for more info.
"Existed: Leonardo Drew" is at the Blaffer Gallery. Everyday detritus transformed into art.
"Toil and Trouble" at the CTRL Gallery. Seven cutting-edge artists on display in a variety of mediums.
"A Texas Sampler" at the William Reaves Fine Art gallery. Works by early Texas painters. Light on the over-the-sofa bluebonnet paintings, we assume.
