Sculpture Month Houston is returning this year with the exhibition Tensile Strength, the second annual show of works at SITE Gallery at the Silos at Sawyer Yards. Launched in 2016 by Volker Eisele of Rudolph Blume Fine Art / ArtScan Gallery, the events organized around Sculpture Month Houston are twofold: a yearly exhibition of local and national artists creating site-specific works at the Silos, and a biennial citywide event in which participating galleries and nonprofit organizations showcase sculptural works. The next citywide sculpture takeover will be in 2018; go here to read our review of From Space to Field, Sculpture Month Houston’s 2016 exhibition at the Silos.
Tensile Strength will open to the public on October 21, 2017 with a reception from 6 to 9 p.m. It features works by 20 artists and duos, 19 of whom are based in Texas — see the full list below.
In conjunction with Tensile Strength, Sculpture Month Houston also organized the exhibition SNARE, which opened October 14 at Rudolph Blume Fine Art / ArtScan Gallery and features works by John Atkins, Bill Davenport, Trey Duvall, Tim Glover, Justin Korver, Alex Larsen, Patrick Renner, and Ed Wilson.
