In the '50s and '60s, few people knew about fancy inventions like 3D movies or color TV. Heck, it was just about all anyone could handle to see Elvis gyrate his hips in black-and-white. Things have clearly changed. Within the culture and imagery of the '50s and '60s were the seeds of this transformation. Artist Omar Hernandez "re-imagines the imagery of those times with caustic effect." By mixing imagery of domestic life, technology and fear of nuclear war, Hernandez's mixed-media renderings juxtapose the cultural ideals of this pivotal period in modern American history. Hernandez' new exhibit, Su-purb Morsels, also includes work from Melissa Hennings, whose new works found their Walden-esque origins in the nature around Caddo Lake. Su-purb Morsels hangs at Mighty Fine Arts, 419 N. Tyler St., through April 3. Gallery hours are 12 to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays or by appointment. Call 214-942-5241 or visit mfagallery.com.
Saturdays, Sundays, 12-5 p.m. Starts: March 12. Continues through April 3, 2011
