Multi-Faceted Art

Photographer Deborah Lightfoot has a knack for capturing familiar landmarks and icons in a way that makes you look at them in a whole new light. Her photo of State Fair of Texas mascot Big Tex, with the giant's face starkly lit in white light, captures the simultaneous creepiness and goofiness that makes him such an unsettling sight. She'll be featured in a group show, Multi-Media, along with sculptor Clayton Lee Bailey and abstract painter Jim Frederick, through September 4 at Artisan Style, 2417 Mahon St. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays.

Tuesdays-Fridays, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.; Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Starts: Aug. 26. Continues through Sept. 4, 2010
