Bradley Kerl's "Theme Park," 2014, at Art Palace
Ted Kincaid's "Nautical Disaster 3," 2013, at Devin Borden Gallery
Cheryl Donegan's "Glamorous Glue," 2010, at David Shelton Gallery
Isabella Rocks: It’s a fast, and stellar, start when the Isabella Court galleries, a quintet now with the recent arrival of Samara Gallery, launch the spring season in the Houston art world.
From Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery-exhibited Carlee Fernandez who questions notions of family and heredity at Inman Gallery to 19th-century informed photo-based offerings by Ted Kincaid at Devin Borden Gallery, there’s much to savor.
Don’t forget to stop by Art Palace for a debut of the very promising painter/UH MFA grad Bradley Kerl and take in David Shelton Gallery‘s doubleheader for abstract painters Cheryl Donegan and Stephen Lapthisophon. Also investigate new kid on the block Samara Gallery, mounting a very intriguing view based upon Karen Bystedt’s rediscovered cache of Warhol portraits she snapped 29 years earlier. Finally, there’s new ceramics talent Angel Oloshove at Art Palace. All this makes us wonder: Is Isabella Court the new Colquitt? (Opening Friday, January 9; check individual galleries for closing dates.)
