5/5: Art Crawl Roundup

You know the drill by now. This weekend is the first Saturday of the month, which means it’s time for the art crawls in Wedgewood-Houston and Downtown areas.

There are plenty of current exhibitions you should check out this weekend. Brandon Donahue’s R.I.P  show at the Elephant Gallery until May 10, and George Dombek’s most recent paintings are at the David Lusk Gallery.

And plenty of exciting exhibitions open this Saturday, just in time for the art crawl. Here are just a couple: Artifacts of Return from Olivia Leigh Martin will be on display at Julia Martin Gallery, and Brooklyn-based artist Michael Scoggins is showing his drawings at COOP Gallery. It’s the most wonderful time of the month!
