The Texas Theatre’s itsy-bitsy Safe Room gallery is back with work by Hollis Hammonds, an Austin-based artists whose complicated, virtuosic drawings collage dystopian landscapes or document disaster aftermaths in a style that feels part Robert Crumb and part Pieter Bruegel.

Sally Warren’s latest body of work incorporates iPhone images into suggestive and ethereal prints and collages.

The Deep Ellum Windows are rotating exhibitions regularly again. This latest lineup of solo shows features shape-fiend Randy Guthmiller, who will create a mural in one of the vacant storefront spaces.

 

Anna Paola Guerra, Lucy Kirkman, Lauralee Pope presented by DB14 April 19, 7-9 p.m. 8500 N. Stemmons Office Building Dallas, TX 75247.

Another week, another DB14 opening. The drab and innocuous Stemmons office building is a curious exhibition space. In the last go-around it proved a fantastic setting for Hubert Marecaille’s ingenious video satire of the contemporary dissociation. This week features three artists whose light touch activates evocative poetics.
