What Do I Know  
William Campbell Contemporary Art - What Do I Know
Exhibition: January 19 - March 18, 2017
Artist: Kris Cox
The show will include more than a dozen pieces that continue the artist's ongoing exploration of surface manipulation and the inherent physicality within two-dimensional surfaces. This new collection marks a shift in Cox's subject matter from totally abstract content to figurative subjects realized as digital photographs whose surfaces have been affected by Cox to produce a heady patina and sumptuous inner luminosity. Cox's photographs vary in size, ranging from single images under two feet to a triptych that measures ten feet across.

Jubilee Theatre Presents  
Jubilee Theatre - Thurgood
Performance: January 27 -February 26, 2017
Written By: George Stevens Jr.
Prior to his appointment to United States Supreme Court, Thurgood Marshall worked tirelessly as a lawyer for the NAACP. This one man play tells the story of his role in the civil rights movement and the people that influenced him. Both historical and inspiring, the heroism of Marshall's life's work and the hard-fought civil-rights victories achieved under his stewardship are truly uplifting, and will leave you misty-eyed with that famous line from the play,-- ”Oh, Let America be America again”.

Horizon Lines  
Amon Carter Museum - Horizon Lines
Exhibition: November 2, 2016–February 26, 2017
For some people, large shade trees and rolling hills provide a sense of safe enclosure. Others find comfort in expansive views of open skies, such as the vistas of Texas. To them, it is calming to be able to acknowledge the land for as far as the eye can see. Our relationship to natural surroundings changes as we explore new horizons. We can learn to trade the muted tones of mountains seen through mists for the awe-inducing majesty of a wide expanse of colorful sunset or a cornucopia of stars in the uninterrupted night skies. In art, a horizontal line separating two fields of color is the most basic tool in the artist's arsenal to create the suggestion of a landscape.
