"Plenitude" Is a Well-Chosen Grab Bag at Barbara Davis Gallery

"Plentitude" is a big group show of "emerging and established artists," and as such, it's a well-chosen grab bag of nice work. Among the standouts is Hoary Squeezy Conversation (2010) by Annie Lapin. The artist uses paint in a way that's engaging and modern -- it looks alternately brushed and squeegeed on -- while the imagery looks simultaneously abstract and representational.

And speaking of "abstract," Joe Davidson's Abstract (2005) is a collection of small cylindrical forms with a twist. They look like lovely little jars cast from wax or carved from alabaster, but actually they're hollow, featherweight forms made from Scotch tape. Meanwhile, Gavin Perry's painting Mother do you wanna bang heads with me (2008-2010) delivers glossy color in orange and yellow pours of resin so vibrantly colored they look molten.

Through March 5. Barbara Davis Gallery, 4411 Montrose Blvd., 713-520-9200.
