In conjunction with The Big Show, an annual juried art exhibition open to Houston-area residents, the Lawndale Art Center is again hosting two afternoons of talks by included artists. Dubbed The Big Slide Show, the events are ‘slide jams,’ in which more than 13 different artists each day will present selections of their works and talk about their creative processes.
Of the 44 artists featured in the 2018 Big Show, artists presenting at The Big Slide Show include:
Saturday, October 27, from 1-3PM
Rajab Ali Sayed
Saturday, November 3, from 1-3PM
Yu Ru Huang
Julia Barbosa Landois
Some of the artists talking about their works for The Big Slide Show were included in Betsy Huete’s list of her top ten works from the exhibition. For example, of Agnès Bourély’s piece, Huete wrote:
“Sure, it’s formally dynamic, as the viewer’s eye gravitates to the oranges in the top left corner and then drops down to the bottom of the canvas, then back up to the right in a kind of whirlpool effect. But the work also reads as a lyrical, even playful apocalyptic battle between two warring, colorful monsters in the midst of a midday oceanic backdrop.”
