Opening Reception: Saturday, February 11

White Scape, an exhibition in the project room of recent monochromatic works by Japanese artist Noriko Ambe. Each piece in the show is made up of many layers of meticulously-cut paper.

Tom Molloy

Lora Reynolds Gallery

Martin Sztyk

Big Medium
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 11, 7–10pm

Martin Sztyk’s show, Narratives, will include work from several series he has been working on, including Urban Forest, Empty City, and New London Stock Exchange. Sztyk says: “My work is heavily narrative-based. I tend to depict scenes of crude inhabitation within vast landscapes as a way to investigate spatial experience. The representation of the built environment through detritus and derelict structures brings forth images of current and possible future realities. In other instances, I fabricate narratives from what I think I learn from history mixed with my daily observations into environmental impossibilities only realized through the lens of digital construction and collage.”

Evidence of Houdini’s Return

AMOA Arthouse
Through March 4

Through the creation of complex visual narratives, the international artists in this exhibition present provocative abstract forms that investigate art’s potential to interrupt and/or reconstruct elements of everyday life: Sterling Allen, Facundo Argañaraz, Strauss Bourque LaFrance, Katja Mater, Christopher Samuels, Justin Swinburne, and J. Parker Valentine. Each artists test the boundaries of working abstractly, with found objects and images, reformed digital technologies, as well as reference traditional techniques.

AMOA Arthouse
Through March 4

On January 21, 2010, 24-year-old Fausto Cardenas fired six shots from a small caliber handgun into the air from the steps of the Texas State Capitol, just blocks from the site of this exhibition. Coincidentally, Jill Magid was present as a witness. In Failed States, Magid draws connections between Fausto’s futile and tragic act and Goethe’s nineteenth-century epic poem, Faust. Magid mines Faust for thematic connections and develops a means of performative exhibition, treating the gallery as a stage to be studied.

Niklas Goldbach

Through March 10

Laurie Frick draws from neuroscience to construct intricately hand-built work and installations that explore the nature of pattern and the mind. Using her background in engineering and technology she explores self-tracking and compulsive organization. She creates life's most basic patterns as color coded charts. Steps walked, calories expended, weight, sleep, time-online, gps location, daily mood as color, micro-journal of food ingested are all part of her daily tracking. She collects personal data using gadgets that point toward a time where complete self-surveillance will be the norm.

Carlos H. Lozano

Roy Medrano

Mexican American Cultural Center
Through March 20

“I started the series Barrio Scenes so that my

Andrade Valdez’s video Monumento Lima is a chaotic, rapid-fire visual compendium of the monuments that occupy Lima’s traffic circles and pedestrian malls.

Austin Closings

Buster Graybill

AMOA Arthouse
Through February 19

The southern colloquial term “tush hog” is a name for a tusked feral hog, and sometimes for tough people who behave like them. Graybill’s Progeny of Tush Hog is a breed of sculptures that retains some Minimalist formal traits while also functioning as wild game feeders. It is as if the contemporary aesthetics of a Donald Judd sculpture escaped Marfa, TX and crossbred with the rural functionality of a deer feeder in the nearby rural landscape.

Steve Wiman

Sala Diaz
Through March 4

"My personal compulsions to save and collect veer dangerously close to hoarding, but, I am not a hoarder, I'm a collector. I collect because I see beauty in the worn patina of the discarded. I collect because objects stir my memories and emotions. I collect because nostalgia and sentimentality are valuable healers. I collect because there is great pleasure in doing so." - Artist statement

TJ Hunt

Lawndale Art Center
Through February 25

For Breaking Ground, Hunt’s subversive and humorous gestures against boundaries in the physical landscape become a vehicle for exploring ideas of ownership—physical or otherwise—and appropriation. The resulting installation relies on the gallery as contextual site for the relocation of materials, addressing these ideas through a visual language that is at once ironically familiar and absurdly self-reflexive.

Rice Gallery

Known for his geometric, abstract sculptures that appear to bound across museum walls, floors, and sculpture gardens, Shapiro has embarked on an entirely new body of work, creating room-sized installations of colorful shapes and lines that seem to hover in suspended animation.

Rebecca Carter, Terri Thornton and Sally Warren

Free Museum of Dallas
Opened December 2, 2011

A text, a photograph, a rock, a narrative, a person, a memory, a place, a trauma: any number of things may enter within close proximity, coming close enough to be "held," intimately handled and unquestioned, preserved without understanding.
