L ibby Tilley's vintage '79 Airstream contains a museum-level micro art gallery and a collection of exquisite century-old Japanese kimonos. The Texas art patron sets up the ultimate art caravan, Lottie Mae Lounge, at Round Top's new venue, The Halles, March 25 through April 3. Tilley plans a tightly focused show featuring the work of five creatives: Katie Pace Halleran's intimate works on paper based on Jungian dream analysis; Marti Howe's Lucky Cat Kimono with museum-quality Japanese kimonos dating from the 1920s through the '70s; artist Kelly O'Connor with three prints including the exclusive feminist-goes-glam No Man's Land #2, 2020; and Tobin Levy's droll taxidermy-inspired wall sculptures. Spilling out from a nearby pavilion, Tilley reprises outtakes from Butch Anthony's hypnotic, cabinet-of- curiosities studio in the deep South: the Museum of Wonder in Seale, Alabama. A collector-cult fave, Anthony encompasses a grand mise en scène of oddities, pairing high 19th-century Victoriana with a contemporary take on post-modern painting. Lottie Mae Lounge at The Halles, 1465 N. Texas Highway 237, Round Top; Thursday, March 25 though Saturday, April 3, 9 am to 5 pm daily; lottiemaelounge. com. Catherine D.

He's combined it with the contiguous venue, calling it Y Station and is offering dealer space during the three shows. In addition to being a former gas station, there was a small grocery store and butcher's shop in the buildings … Farther south in Warrenton, Box Road has claimed the space where Clutter stood for years. The buildings have received a facelift — it's sited next to Excess I. Down the road in Rutersville, Then & Now by Windy is open on weekends, with extended operating days during the show. Round Top: MimiBella — a Round Top and Bellville mainstay owned by Delwin and Ginger Rettig — is now owned by Rebecca Mayer and has moved to a new space on Minden Square … MimiBella's neighbor is Tre.TX, owned by Clemencia Larrimore and Michelle Gallagher. Tre.TX, which opens in April, has previously done pop-ups and is showing again at The Arbors. Block Seventeen is currently under renovation to welcome new businesses by fall. Smithville: Round Top and La Grange's Pop A Top package store has acquired Clint's in downtown Smithville. Pop A Top is owned by Tiffany Reid.
