The Waco 52 art show continues its exhibition at the Waco 52 Pop-Up Gallery at 712 Austin Avenue, but the art up for sampling isn't limited to what's on the walls or the tables.

Saturday, Aug. 19, features the latest of several Saturday morning brunches held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for $15. Luna Juice Bar hosts it, with vegetarian offerings part of the brunch. On Aug. 26, the brunch goes gospel with music supplied by Baylor professor Bob Darden, founder of Baylor's Black Gospel Music Restoration Project.

Those into evening meals can take part in two farm-to-market dinners crafted by chef Corey McEntyre of Milo Biscuit Co., with wine pairings by David Mayfield Selections. The next Dinner at 712 is a four-course meal at 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 24, for a $60 ticket with the final Dinner at 712 a five-course meal on Aug. 31 for $100. Tickets are available here.

On Monday evening from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Baylor art history professor Heidi Hornik and senior lecturer in history David A. Smith, Waco Trib's arts columnist, will talk about "How To Look At And Buy Art."

The Pop-Up Gallery also will host art classes and a 5 p.m. weekday happy hour through the exhibit's run. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.
