  1. Kevin Duval, who put on a spectacular exhibition of kinetic art last September at 311 Gallery, 311 West Martin Street, is back with his latest colorful and moving creations: Shaping Time. You start the kinetic wall art pieces moving and they continue in intricate, ever-changing patterns. More colorful and more medium-sized pieces are available this year. This show is guaranteed to put a grin on your face. Videos of last year’s works are on the 311 Gallery Facebook page.
