Who says artists don't have a sense of humor? Jessica Moon Bernstein, one of the artists with work in "Detritus," certainly does. "Two of her pieces are made from recycled bicycle inner tubes and they’re very phallic," says Sarah Schellenberg, program coordinator for Art League Houston. "They look like dicks, and they're called that. One is called Well Hung." Also being shown in "Detritus" are Angela Beloian's paintings, which, like many of Bernstein's sculptures, look beautiful and dangerous at the same time. "They both have a rivalry going on between aggression and passive beauty," says Schellenberg. There's an opening reception from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, July 17. Regular viewing hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays. Through August 28. 1953 Montrose.
