1001 Bissonnet St.
Houston, TX 77004
The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston doesn't usually arrange its exhibits according to color, but for ''The Artist's Palette: Primary Colors on Paper,'' it's doing exactly that. Drawn from its holdings of prints, drawings and photographs, ''Palette'' features works that emphasize one of the three primary colors: yellow, blue and red. MFAH Curatorial Assistant of Prints and Drawings Rebecca Dunham, who organized the show, says that two of her favorite works in the exhibit are prints by American artist Kate Shepherd that emphasize yellow and red. ''They have astounding visual appeal and underscore the concept of this exhibition. They are nearly identical in composition but drastically different in color. I placed them at opposite ends of the exhibition to serve as the first pieces viewers see when they enter and exit the show.'' 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 12:15 to 7 p.m. Sundays. Through June 9. 1001 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-639-7300 or visit www.mfah.org.
