If there's one thing photographer Hal Samples can do without even speaking, it's make social commentary. His works offer comment on life, levels of suffering or joy and the environment just hanging there still on a wall. Saturday, May 3, Samples opens a showcase of some of his works shot in Brazil (plus a video co-shot with Hugo Elias) in his latest exhibition, City of God, at Hal Samples Gallery, 2814 Main St. A reception runs from 6 to 10 p.m. and features a performance by Denton's Florene. The show runs through June 1. Call 314-334-4481 or visit halsamples.com.
Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: May 3. Continues through June 1, 2008
