Winter Shows at Blue Star

When: Fridays-Sundays, 12-6 p.m. and Thursdays, 12-8 p.m. Continues through Feb. 7 2016

Winter at Blue Star Blue Contemporary Art brings three exciting new exhibitions, on view through February 7. For starters, “Turn Your Face Toward the Sun,” the Main Gallery’s exhibit of work by Texas-transplants Charlie Morris and Liz Rodda, is a multidisciplinary affair that employs assemblage as a medium to juxtapose and re-contextualize found items, seemingly random images and crafted elements. In Gallery 4, take in Norwegian filmmaker Bodil Furu’s Landscapes by the Book. From multiple points of view, the video looks at how the landscapes and people in Fron, Norway are altered by development and notions of progress. Meanwhile, in the Project Space, the interactive and deeply imaginative “Gift: An Exquisite Exhibition” draws inspiration from creativity scholar Lewis Hyde’s book The Gift: Creativity and the Artist in the Modern World. Designed to grow and change over time, the exhibition opens with a single artwork by Lawrence Weiner, with subsequent installations on January 14 and 21.

Price: $3-$5 (free on First Thursday and First Friday)
