Five Points Museum of Contemporary Art will hold the opening of a new exhibition by Houston artist Jesse Lott and Louisiana artist Travis Whitfield from 5-8 p.m. Dec. 7. "The Road So Far" is at once recollective and visionary, featuring tightly focused selections of each artist’s work that examine their use of various media, techniques and their relationship with their physical environment The exhibition will feature an installation by Whitfield that includes a full-size “Shotgun House” containing artifacts and photographs from Northern Louisiana, where Whitfield lives and has a studio. The exhibition will also feature a new series of drawings by Lott, in addition to several works of his sculpture in wood, metal and paper. Lott’s work, often referred to as Urban Frontier Art, explores many styles, including abstract and figurative, and often includes found objects and materials from the urban landscape and his neighborhood in Houston’s Fifth Ward. The opening reception will feature live music by Grammy-winning zydeco artist Chubby Carrier and the Bayou Swamp Band, as well as light refreshments.

Five Points Museum of Contemporary Art is located at 1201 North Moody St. and is open to the public from noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Admission at the museum is always free.
