Booker-Lowe Gallery hosts world-acclaimed Australian Aboriginal painter Rosella Namok in her first solo exhibition in the U.S. Often called the rock star of Aboriginal art, Namok will be in Houston for the opening of "Paint Up and Dance!" and for the premiere of Houston Ballet's new Rite of Spring, created by artistic director Stanton Welch, which features two of her landscapes, Sand Marks and Stinging Rain, as backdrops.

Namok is the first Australian indigenous artist to have her work translated into stage design for a major international ballet company. Her new paintings are equally evocative of her ancestral country, with their powerful, gestural marks and brilliant colors.

On view through April 20.
