Two More Can’t-Miss Shows in December


Dec. 6-21, Blackbird Gallery.

Blackbird has proven itself again and again as one of the most adventurous galleries in the Arts District. Most recently, it turned a show of Su Limbert’s work into a giant storybook. With a year-end group show themed to Grimm’s Fairy Tales, Blackbird takes another step toward the sublime: Gallerist Gina Quaranto promises the show looks like “some kind of enchanted forest.” Believe her. 1551 S. Commerce St., 782-0319;


Dec. 6-24, Trifecta Gallery in The Arts Factory.

The PRISMA Artist Collective includes 30 painters, sculptors and illustrators from all over the world, a proud association of individuals representing some of the most gifted pop surrealists working today. And this month, Trifecta presents works by 14 of them, including Rod Luff, Hsiao-Ron Cheng and Casey Weldon. 107 E. Charleston Blvd., Suite 135, 366-7001;
