An exhibition of works by Houston-based artist Amy Beth Wright. The show includes more than 100 new works by the artist: paintings, sound works, and interactive sculptures. The pieces are inspired by the artist's "silent mini studio residency last year at her aunt’s tropical garden in Galveston, her recent trip to Belize, and the textile works of her grandmothers."
"From 1845-1848, artist Paul Kane camped and canoed across the North American continent, sketching in watercolor and oil paints along the way. He wanted to record the landscape and the people before they changed. This exhibition presents Kane’s first-hand works exploring regions through the artist’s eye."
"Shaun Roberts lives in Nacogdoches, Texas, where he works as Assistant Professor of Painting at Stephen F. Austin State University. The artist's compositions are often inspired by Italian Renaissance and Baroque masters, including Caravaggio, as seen in his dynamic, painterly strokes and theatrical settings. The artist has eschewed the characters of the early modern paintings and instead created a scene from everyday life in deep East Texas and incorporated contemporary people as actors and actresses in his compositions."
"Recognized for his skills with ceramics, forming opulent candlesticks, chandeliers and arrangements, artist Anthony Sonnenberg also makes crowns, clothing, mixed media wall pieces, installations, and performances that visualize the decadence characteristic of Baroque and Rococo periods. Such aesthetic superfluities, created with lavish fabrics, metals, ceramics dripping with brilliant glaze, flowers and found objects emphasize the overabundant excesses and ideas of constructed beauty throughout history."
"An exhibition featuring more than 40 works by Fort Worth-based artist Helen Altman. Sticks and Stones particularly focuses on the artist's fascination with flora and fauna, which 'have been a much-appreciated constant in my life,' the artist said. 'They have been a constant source of joy and also a source of coping.'"
