Art League Houston presents "In & Out," an exhibition of new work by Houston-based artist Bradley Kerl in the Front Gallery. Known for his vibrant, stylized paintings of nature and flora tableaux, Kerl’s new work (a survey of sorts from the past two-and-a-half years) plays, in part, with the familiar notion of a painting as a window or a portal — simultaneously inviting viewers into the work while also denying the illusory experience.

Equal parts outward-facing and introspective, this exhibition negotiates what it means to navigate the world amidst so much uncertainty. Kerl’s skillful application of paint and mark-making gives his work a visceral and exuberant confidence that becomes undermined by the familiar feeling of trepidation as we look out from our homes, viewing a changed world.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until April 16.
