Art opening: Good and Well

Critic's Pick Release Date: 2010-05-12

At first glance, the the three artists featured in David Shelton Gallery’s latest exhibition seem a motley crew: Aaron Hans Forland’s meticulous, sharp, graphic painting, which notoriously appears unbidden on city-owned fixtures or quotidian objects, beckon you into double- take territory; Mimi Kato’s fantastical photos featuring heavily stylized, mysterious characters make you look closer, yearning to understand the elusive narrative; and Leslee Fraser’s dark and delicate sculptural assemblages subvert the twee and make you … hang on a minute. We think we get it. And we can’t wait to see it. Opening reception: 6-9 p.m. Saturday, May 15, David Shelton Gallery, 20626 Stone Oak Parkway, — Sarah Fisch
