Bang Some Gongs

Mineko Grimmer isn't screwing around with existential quandaries when it comes to naming her latest exhibit at the Irving Arts Center. No, sir. It's called Gongs.Wires.Bamboo. Guess what it's made of. Grimmer's work is an aural and a visual experience, with ice pyramids suspended above bronze, bamboo and wire (ahem) boxes that will emit different tones as the ice melts. And since the Irving Arts Center's slogan is "It's worth the trip!", tepid praise if ever there were such a thing, you can rest assured that Gongs.Wires.Bamboo. won't make you want that hour of life back, neither. The exhibit runs Saturday through Halloween at 3333 N. MacArthur Blvd. in Irving. Admission is free to the gallery, open Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Visit
