O'Kane Gallery's Fall Exhibit Celebrates Houston's 1930's Art Scene

Carlson-SmalLandscapeUHD's O'Kane Gallery will host the exhibit "The 'Left Bank' on the Bayou" beginning with an opening reception on September 4 from 6-8 p.m. The exhibit will run through October 16.

According to the gallery, the collection is a celebration and remembrance of Houston's avant-garde art and theater culture in the 1930's, "an era that set the tone for acceptance and tolerance for a broad range of arts which continues to thrive in Houston today."

The exhibition will feature works from Carden Bailey, Gene Charlton, Nione Carlson, and Maudee Carron. The group of artists were inspired by Margo Jones, a theatre director and innovator known for creating the first professional theater-in-the-round in the United States, and a key figure in Houston's art history.

This exhibit is funded by grants from the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance.

For more information on this exhibit, contact the Gallery at 713-221-8042. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., and Saturday noon - 5 p.m. The gallery is closed on university holidays.
