Artist Leigh Anne Lester's work wouldn't look out of place on a storyboard for a Peter Jackson epic. By combining elements of biological reality with fantasy, she creates "hybrid plants" that serve as a commentary on "genetic modification and the biological impact it has had on our environment." Lester, a resident of San Antonio, joins forces with Arlington's Michelle Murillo--an accomplished artist in her own right--for Palimpsest, opening Saturday at the McKinney Avenue Contemporary, 3120 McKinney Ave. An opening reception takes place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Saturday; the exhibit hangs 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays through June 26. Two other exhibitions, Kana Harada's The Way Home and Megan Adams' Interiorscapes, run concurrently. Call 214-953-1212 or visit the-mac.org.
Wednesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Starts: May 26. Continues through June 26, 2010
