Nancy Mims’ exhibit “Beheld” at Photo Méthode Gallery

Need a cool night out during this stultifying heat and humidity?

On Friday there are joint openings from 6 to 8 p.m. at the four galleries in the Flatbed building, 2832 E. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

Nancy Mims’ intriguing photo art work will be celebrated at Photo Méthode Gallery.

Mims captures images on daily walks, then prints the digital photos on linen, often adding stitching or otherwise altering the photo in curious ways.

Read our story about Mims and her artistic practice: “Nancy Mims mines the minutiae of a daily walk to create beguiling photos.”

The new exhibits opening Friday at Flatbed are:

“Transparent Vulnerability.” Camiba Art Gallery showcases the multimedia work of Misha Penton, who specializes in watercolor paintings and audio art. “Connections: Monotypes and Painting Duets by Tony Saladino.” At Gallery Shoal Creek, Texas artist Tony Saladino moves with ease between painting and printmaking. His new series of monotypes feature hand-coloring that emphasizes his mastery of color and form.
“Scorch and Drag.” At Flatbed Press, John Robert Craft uses solid cast-iron sculptural pieces to create his minimalistic yet rugged-looking abstract prints.
