Local artist Constance Braden shows fairy-tale images with heavy undertones. Six of the Victorian-ish images included in her exhibition “Tales” were made to match the story-poems of Outgrown, by Braden’s friend and local author Stella Brice. Another two take a semi-gothic view of the Biblical story of the Annunciation. Braden also dedicates five charcoal works to Hindu myths, with an emphasis on Kali, the goddess of life and death and destruction and creation, best known to Americans as one of those scary-looking things with lotsa arms. Braden will no doubt present her in a way that’s both intelligent and accessible. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. Gallery 1724, 1724 Bissonnet. The show runs through May 24. For information, call 713-523-2547 or visit www.gallery1724.com.
Wednesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Starts: April 26. Continues through May 24, 2008
