"Thread Bare" features fabric works by Adrien Carin Ryder that examine the fragility of the human body. By abstracting biological images through printmaking processes, she focuses on natural colors, organic lines and amorphous forms that occur naturally in life. Ryder's delicate, hand-printed, installed fabrics are in the forms of sculpture and wall hangings.
"Slip On" is an exhibition of works on paper and wall paintings by Dallas-based artist Erin Guy. Her work investigates the world through abstracted images of clothing and accessories and juxtaposes the images with representations of nature in depictions of leaves and plants.
Gallery hours are noon-6 p.m., Friday-Sunday in Blue Star Arts Complex Suite 115 at South Alamo and Probandt streets. The gallery will be open noon-9 p.m., Friday, Jan. 5 as part of the monthly First Friday gallery open house in the Southtown area. A closing reception, free and open to all, is 6-9 p.m., Friday, Jan. 19.
