“7: Unlayered, Justin Garcia”

It’s no secret Justin Garcia is one of our favorite artists; he won our Best of Houston® Best Artist award in 2013, was profiled in our 100 Creatives series and most recently was named to our list of Houston’s Top 10 Painters. Garcia hasn’t done a gallery exhibit for a year now, so when we heard he was holding a retrospective “7: Unlayered, Justin Garcia”, and that the show marks a turning point in his career, we were understandably curious. “It’s a show of the seven series that I’ve worked on up to now. Each series was a step for me. Now I’m starting something new and I want to explain to people how I got here, what went into those series.” The one­-night exhibit includes an artist talk (7 p.m.) and the unveiling of his new project.(Garcia has sworn us to secrecy about the new work. All we can say is, “Hell, yeah!”)

6 to 9 p.m. Silver Street Studios, 2000 Edwards. For information, visit ­justingarciaart.com. Free.
Sat., Oct. 4, 6-9 p.m., 2014
