Rites of Spring 
Every spring, The Dutch Art Gallery hosts their annual Rites of Spring juried art show. This year saw 41 artists produce 50 pieces across different genres, with two New York art critics selecting the top three paintings. First place went to Judy Crowe, a Houston-based painter. But just because the competition is over doesn't mean you can't peruse the exhibit, absolutely free of charge. All work will be on display--and available for purchase--through May 11.
