February’s Arts & Music @ Wedgewood/Houston is this Saturday in the neighborhood I call home, and it looks to be one of the best yet.
444 Humphreys St will have an opening reception for a new video installation by Zack Hall. Zack is a talented director, editor, and cinematographer. He’s the force behind the Belcourt Theatre‘s repertory film trailers and ingenious pre-show shorts for the midnight series. (Case in point: This brilliant Jurassic Park pre-show short.) Zack also provides visuals for Space is the Place nights at the Stone Fox and cuts the trailers for The Light and Sound Machine at Third Man Records.
444 Humphreys is the pop-up porch space (and by a stroke of luck the street address) at a location which also houses the Julia Martin Gallery and Cleft Studios. The Julia Martin Gallery will be open with work from Julia, David Kenton Kring and other artists.
Down the street at 467 Humphreys, the Infinity Cat Recordings office is having an open house. The Nashville label behind bands like JEFF the Brotherhood, Be Your Own Pet and PUJOL hardly ever opens to the public. Don’t miss your chance to see the Orrall family’s curious collection of art & memorabilia.
At 425 Chestnut Street, OVVIO ARTE will feature the work of Veta Cicolello and at 9 p.m. the music of the aptly-named Music Band.
At 500 Houston St, Fort Houston will exhibit an ongoing print show, featuring work from Grand Palace Silkscreen, Kangaroo Press and Boss Construction Design Screenprint.
At 516 Hagan St, Zeitgeist Gallery will continue a painting and photography show featuring work by Megan Lightell, Terry Rowlett, and Peter Alan Monroe.
