The Reclusive Image: Works from Texas Museums
Cell Series: Bill Davenport
The Old Jail Art Center
Through May 20, 2012
The Old Jail Art Center in Albany, Texas, has announced their two current exhibits, The Reclusive Image: Works from Texas Museums and Cell Series: Bill Davenport, will close Sunday, May 20, 2012.
Works from Texas museums that rarely come out of the vault, for one reason or another, return to their lending institutions with a new appreciation. The Reclusive Image: Works from Texas Museums closes on May 20th at the Old Jail Art Center in Albany, Texas. Thirteen institutions generously lent works and also shared the reason for their infrequent exposure and interesting side notes. It may be your last chance to see a Larry Poons, a Jean Honoré Fragonard and a Charles M. Russell (just to name a few) all in one exhibition.
Bill Davenport soon “closes shop” on his junk store / art installation as part of the OJAC’s Cell Series of exhibitions. In fact, May 20th is your last chance to peruse the show and take advantage of seeing (and purchasing…just like a real store) rare macramé owls, a concrete top hat, a giant spoon, and a painting of a basset hound smoking a pipe! Come visit the artist / shopkeeper the last day of the exhibit.
The Old Jail Art Center will open three new exhibits on Saturday, June 2, 2012. The exhibits are Two Women Look West: Photographs of King Ranch, Cell Series: Time Has Slipped Rows by Justin Boyd, and West Texas Triangle: Catherine Lee.
