As welcome as the spring flowers that are finally blooming is the announcement of an exhibit of the work of Fort Worth-based artist Billy Hassell. His brilliant, hyperstylized paintings of birds and their habitats are always a pleasure. An exhibit of his recent work is at Conduit Gallery in Dallas through May 23. 1626 Hi Line Drive. 214-939-0064; www.conduitgallery.com.
