Gallery One Three Seven: Victoria Whitaker

See the tiniest art gallery in town at the opening of Gallery One Three Seven: Victoria Whitaker. "It's 1.37 square feet. It's a miniature gallery within the museum, inside the "No Zoning" exhibit," explains Connie McAllister, communications and marketing manager for the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston. Gallery One Three Seven resembles a tabletop with two walls, filled with tiny pieces of art. "There are seven artists rotating through the space, with Victoria Whitaker opening [next],' McAllister tells us. And should people expect a regular opening reception, with the artist showing them around? "Well, standing around," she laughs. Victoria Whitaker's opening reception is at 6:30 p.m. June 4. Regular viewing hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursdays, noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. Whitaker's exhibit continues through July 2. Gallery One Three Seven continues through October 4. 5216 Montrose. For information, call 713-284-8250 or visit Free.
