Houston metalsmith and educator Sandie Zilker gets recognized for the excellence of her work as well as the influence she’s had on her field in “Texas Masters Series: Sandie Zilker,” one of our choices for Saturday. The solo exhibit is a retrospective of work from Zilker’s 40-plus-year career, including jewelry and, more recently, video and installation. In addition to exhibits at Finland’s Designmuseo, Norway’s Norden Feldske Kundiondustrimuseum and our own Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Zilker’s work has been seen in several books (500 Brooches, 500 Bracelets, 500 Plastic and Resin Objects, and Showcase 500 Art Necklaces). Zilker is head of the Jewelry and Enamel Department and the Three Dimensional Design Department at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s Glassell School of Art.
There’s an opening reception with the artist 5:30 to 8 p.m. May 30. Regular viewing hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, noon to 5 p.m. Sundays in June (only). Through September 6.
