“The show will now double as the start of a new campaign to raise awareness for Ali’s disappearance. Ali’s mom will be there to answer questions and give direction as to what they need from our community to keep the flyers out and the searches going until someone comes forward with information. Someone somewhere knows something. Where is Ali Lowitzer?“
Indigenous Genius – The R.W. Northcutt Collection at Art League Houston
Art League Houston: A selection of artistic and scientific artifacts from the private collection of pioneering Ohio-based collector R.W. Northcutt, which chronicles the obscure yet poetic life of three particular wood-working animals the beaver, the woodpecker and the termite and explores the deep-rooted connections between animal and human methodologies.
Fleet for Abby – New Works on Paper by Catherine Colangelo at Art League Houston
Art League Houston: Prepare to set your sails for an exciting seafaring adventure. Fleet for Abby presents an enchanting installation of sixteen beautifully crafted gouache paintings of sail boats on Japanese Okawara paper, inspired by the remarkable story of sixteen-year-old Abby Sunderlands attempt to become the youngest person ever to sail solo around the world.
The works in this exhibition explore the intrinsic connections between themes of friendship, youthful adventure and childhood imagination.
Royal Bangs w/ Colourmusic at Fitzgerald’s
I’ve been listening to the Royal Bangs album Flux Outside for a couple months now. It never gets old. Free shows at Fitzgerald’s never get old either. Doors open at 8:00PM tonight. Don’t be late. From a quick listen of Colourmusic, I can tell you won’t want to pass on their opening set. I’m intuitive like that.
