Welcome Home Tony Bones At TractorBeam Gallery.
Tonight is a local art-lover's dream, as at least four new exhibitions are holding their opening receptions tonight.
Besides the ones at TractorBeam, Kettle Art, and Magnolia Gallery that we detail below, a fourth opening happens tonight over at the McKinney Avenue Contemporary from 5:30 to 9. With a little bit of “strategery,” it just might be possible to devise a scheme that allows you to hit them all in one night. But, of course, they'll all be around for a few weeks if you wanted to check them out at a more enjoyable pace.
Other than that, you can help William Shatner celebrate his birthday over at The Majestic — or just take a couple of shots and do a dramatic reenactment of “Rocket Man” in his honor over at the Double Wide.
Tony Bones' Long Gone at TractorBeam
This new exhibition, Long Gone, brings the currently New York-based back to the city in which he got his start. Though he tends to stick to gallery pieces these days, his work is still charming — and perhaps even more so due to the added benefit of time. The reception is tonight from 7 to10, with an after party at Three Sheets to follow. The show runs through April 20.
Clint Scism's I Draw Lines at Kettle Art
If you've ever been to Deep Ellum and driven under the underpass at Good Latimer and Commerce, then you've seen several examples of Clint Scism's work in the form of eye-catching paintings on the cement support beams. The reception for I Draw Lines goes from 7 to 10 tonight, and the show runs through April 14.
Bruce Lee Webb's New Works at The Magnolia Gallery
Though Waxahachie-based artist and gallery owner Bruce Lee Webb works in a variety of mediums, his newest works on display at The Magnolia Gallery (inside the theatre) are all on paper. The exhibition runs through April 25, but Webb will be on hand tonight from 8 to 11 to answer questions about his works as part of a free reception that's open to the public.
Shatner's World at The Majestic
Tonight, William Shatner will celebrate his 81st birthday with a performance of his two-hour one-man show at The Majestic. In the show, which was originally performed on Broadway, Shatner talks about his life while sharing personal stories about Star Trek, Boston Legal and his love for horses.
Good Luck Karaoke at Double Wide
Is it just us or was there no Good Luck Karaoke at Double Wide last Thursday? The popular weekly, themed and costumed event is for sure happening tonight, though, and with a Revenge of the Nerds theme. So go geek out with Ink Master star Oliver Peck and DJ Hammertimez in your best nerd attire. Pocket protectors welcome, although people wanting to sing songs by Alanis Morissette are not.
