WOAH Last-Look:
…a pointy toe boot up the backside’ Post-Abstraction From Houston at Wilding Cran Gallery  Framed by a 'tongue-in-cheek imperative,’ Christian Eckart curates a thoughtful survey of Houston-based artists working to similar ends in an effort to open 'lines of communication' between two cities. What culminates is a glimpse at a talent pool refreshingly different from LA, where an attention to formality is favored over a more cutesy interpretation of abstraction. Up thru Saturday, Nov 7th with closing reception 6-8pm. Regular hours 11am-6pm.
