For Earl Staley's solo show of recent work, titled Reconstructions, the Houston artist and professor reconfigured his own paintings of Greco-Roman mythology from 30 years ago by cutting the work into strips, repainting each with strokes and dots, and reattaching the strips to new canvases. The original image appears as a ghost under its updated present.

Staley became an artist in 1959. He has taught at Rice University and the University of St. Thomas. Currently, he is the chair of the art department at Lone Star College in Tomball.

On view Sept. 2-25.
