4/7: Wedgewood-Houston Art Crawl Roundup

It’s the first Saturday of April this weekend, so it’s time to crawl. The usual suspects will be open with new exhibits, and there’s some exceptional art on display this month. We are particularly excited about the work at Fort Houston. NATIVE’s art director Courtney Spencer will be showing her work, as will Marcus Maddox, a photographer whose photos have often graced the pages of the magazine.

We also recommend visiting the Zeitgesit Gallery to see the group show organized by Memphis-based artists Dwayne Butcher and Georgia Creson. Their exhibit will tackle such issues as race, history, and other social commentary. For more information on artists and galleries for the art crawl, visit the event page here.
