As part of White Linen Night in the Heights, Casa Ramirez is hosting “Joe Lopez: Calles de la Vida,” an exhibition of Lopez’s small watercolors. “I paint the people and things that I see,” Lopez tells us. Works in the series show humble people involved in daily family life, a street vendor, children playing, a girl eating corn on the cob. One of the most striking is Caballo Chulito, which shows the head of a dark brown horse, mane flying in the wind, against a muted green background. As with much of Lopez’s work, it’s accessible, engaging and effective. Lopez will be in attendance at the exhibit. “I love going to Houston. I don’t get there as often as I would like, but it’s always great to see…everyone.”
6 to 9 p.m. Casa Ramirez, 241 West 19th. For information, call 713-880-2420. Free.
Sat., Aug. 2, 6-9 p.m., 2014
