Gated Blaxploitation

 Saint of the Suburbs, a new exhibit by artist Zoë Charlton, consists of work which "combines the black female figure and the suburban ideal to create a sublime and simple beauty." From the work we've seen, this means paintings that split the difference between samey subdivisions and juicy booties. And when we say juicy booties, we mean big enough to crush your house Gulliver's Travels–style. (Somewhere out there, R. Crumb is breaking a sweat.) See for yourself Monday through November 7 at the UNT Art Gallery, located at the corner of Mulberry and Welch Streets in Denton. An opening reception takes place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, October 25, preceded at 1 p.m. (in the Silver Eagle suite of the University Union) by a lecture and panel discussion entitled "1808-2008: What’s Next? (200 Years of Race Relations in North Texas)." Call 940-565-4005 or visit
