HOT TICKET

‘TX BI 2013’
LGBT diversity in America.

Open now through December 14, TX BI 2013 uses painting, performance, photography, sculpture, and video to explore artists relating to both sexes and/or showing characteristics of both sexes and/or working through perspectives of sexual attraction to both men and women. Selected artists include: Vonetta Berry, Linda Cornflake, Ryan Hawk, Hogan Kimbrell, Koomah, Traci Matlock, Madsen Minax, Tish Stringer, Y.E. Torres, Stalina Villarreal, and Julia Wallace.

This fascinating exhibit, at Gallery 1724, 1724 Bissonnet St., has appeal for both art lovers and neophytes.

“This show is very important as it offers a setting for a micro-dialogue of artists operating outside of both homosexual and heterosexual communities,” says founder Emily Sloan and host Tim Deason, organizers of the exhibition. “We are thrilled to open this space to these unique visions.”
