Joseph Havel: Cockroach Poems/ Jillian Conrad & Jeff Forster
September 2 - October 15, 2010
1953 Montrose Boulevard, Houston, TX 77006
Art League Houston launches the Fall season with the opening of Cockroach Poems, an exhibition of sculpture by 2010 Texas Artist of the Year Joseph Havel. Using text cut from the book The Dream Songs by poet John Berryman, Havel creates a narrative in which a group of collage “poems” are edited by glue-and-text eating cockroaches, randomly altering the work. Don’t miss the two-person show featuring recent work by recent Core Fellow Jillian Conrad and clay artist Jeff Forster. Conrad’s work created with plywood, concrete, and cardboard reference everyday landscapes while Forster’s sculptures are made from reused materials, fired remnants, and photographs of pre-existing sculptures.
