In New Works by Dallas-based artist Giovanni Valderas, the artist combines a variety of materials, including paper, acrylic paint, wood, drawing and screen printing, to create complex three-dimension paintings that hang awkwardly on the wall. The works explore themes of decaying traditional structures.

Cocomirle is a site-specific audio visual environment by Romanian-born and Houston-based artist Adela Andea in collaboration with musicians, composers and performers Markus Cone and Ian Travis from experimental sound group CHIN XAOU TI WON. The exhibition explores the relationship between technology and social interaction through an intricately woven electromechanical installation. Made up of acoustic instruments, mixing boards, electronic keyboards, flex neon, cold cathode fluorescent lights (CCFL) and computer electronics, Cocomirle engages with the visual, spatial, kinetic and phenomenological properties of sound.

Art Criticism and Reporting is a two-part exhibition by Devon Britt-Darby that combines fragments of retrieved memories to explore themes of vulnerability, portraiture and appropriated autobiography. Using a performative painting process, the exhibit will piece together scenes from the artist's past as a sex worker and a former newspaper art critic to evoke ambiguous narratives.
