Dallas artist Jennifer Morgan paints more than her share of women, all fairly attractive despite their freakishly exaggerated features. However, while I can certainly handle some big eyes and bee-stung lips, these ladies' noses are out of hand, each bearing a squiggly line that's meant to demarcate the boundary between nose and lip but ends up looking like half a mustache. Homie don't play that. Call me crazy, but these half-mustachioed women will haunt me for the rest of my days. Even so, Morgan's paintings are alive with color and interesting subjects, including enough lions, monkeys and birds to fill a small zoo, so I'll let her slide on the hirsute females. Café Izmir, 3711 Greenville Ave., presents a free showing of Jennifer Morgan's work this Friday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Call 214-826-7788.
