ON VIEW NOW

Cage Match Project: Stephanie Concepcion Ramirez: were friends/foes now foes/friends

The Museum of Human Achievement

Last Chance - March 3 through April 21, 2018

"For her installation at Cage Match Project, Stephanie Concepcion Ramirez has carefully selected and employed materials to confront the inconsistency of narratives in our cultural history that uphold the suppression of knowledge relating to Central American conflicts. Stemming from the language of photography, Round VI: were friends/foes now foes/friends isolates color and light to materialize images that illustrate the fragility of history and how it is passed on or disseminated across time.

Andrea de Leon & Terra Goolsby: Chambers of Longing

ICOSA Collective

Last Chance - March 30 through April 21, 2018

An exhibition featuring works by Andrea de Leon and Terra Goolsby. The pieces in the show examine "the phenomena of fetishism and object relations. By transforming negative space and creating relationships between the interior and exterior, the work fluctuates between opposing lines of bondage and protection. Each sculpture catalyzes varying emotional responses that tap into the depths of psychological compulsion."

Annie Elkington: Tulip Dreams

Sarofim School of Fine Arts - Fine Arts Gallery

Last Chance - April 17 through 22, 2018

"By converging her native Texan and Australian identity, Annie Elkington presents her exhibition, Tulip Dreams. Based on “the dreamtime,” a traditional Aboriginal belief system, this interactive installation surrounds the audience in childlike whimsy and naiveté. She intends for this experience to revive the viewer’s sense of innocence and wonder associated with childhood."

Sonja Lea: Conjectures from the Cradle

Sarofim School of Fine Arts - Fine Arts Gallery

Last Chance - April 17 through 22, 2018

Sofia Payne: Hidden Tails

Sarofim School of Fine Arts - Fine Arts Gallery

Last Chance - April 17 through 22, 2018

"Sofia Payne’s exhibition Hidden Tails began as an exploration of her heritage as a Mexican American which has evolved into a personal mission to revisit rich and vivid mythologies that were told long before colonization of the Americas. Through the use of expressive ceramic animal sculptures these indigenous narratives are retold to delight, inspire, and reinforce their significance in humanity’s history."

Fusebox Festival

Jill Wilkinson: Pine

Flatbed Press

March 3 through April 27, 2018

"The crux of Jill Wilkinson’s work is drawing: Drawing from trees, drawing from the memory of trees, drawing from the muscle memory, drawing the void, drawing from the drawing. Wilkinson finds delight in the painterly line and it shows in her drawings and recently created monoprints. Her recent works, many of which reference trees, are only the starting point for Wilkinson’s linear rapture of space. It is a space that begs you to see more."

Spencer Fidler: Vasculum

Flatbed Press

March 17 through April 28, 2018

"Spencer Fidler’s practice is to collect volunteer plants from his property in Las Cruces, New Mexico and draw them daily at four times their scale. He is compelled to take only what the day offers. He quickly finds himself immersed in the complexities of the flowers and vines sorting out the veinlike leaves and blossoms. His large scale drawings present the world as a still life in a vasculum, a vessel used for collecting and studying botanical specimens."
