Artist/gallerist Wayne Gilbert might be the most colorful character on the Houston art scene. The Heights denizen can often be found hopping a plane to an international art show he and Gus Kopriva have co-curated.

The duo has tirelessly carved out art turf along the 11th Street corridor at Ortman Place, blocks from Heights Boulevard. When landlord Kopriva of Redbud Gallery needed more space, Gilbert spied a nearby building sited in a residential area a short stroll from the current G Gallery (which will remain open through December). Voilà — the G Spot was born.

The clean, well-lighted one-room space debuted last month with new work by Angelbert Metoyer. At the gallery now: Rice Gallery-exhibited Jane Miller at G Gallery, Phillip Kremer of the faceless portraits at G Spot, the latter curated by Hello Project’s Jon Hopson.
