Floyd Newsum & Meredith “Butch” Jack: Collected Stories at Nicole Longnecker Gallery, Houston. Dates: October 23 – January 8, 2022.
From the gallery: “Nicole Longnecker Gallery announces the fall exhibit, Collected Stories, from legendary Texas artists, Floyd Newsum and Meredith ‘Butch’ Jack showing new work created during the pandemic. The exhibit is the first at our new gallery space at 1440 Greengrass.
‘We are excited to showcase our new gallery space with this exhibit of new work by two renowned Texas artists,’ said gallery owner Nicole Longnecker. ‘Floyd Newsum and Meredith Jack need no introduction to collectors, but it is exciting to see what they have created during the pandemic.
‘Collected Stories refers to both artist’s unique visual languages: Butch’s Morse code elements and Floyd’s familiar icons. Both create art that lives on, not as a product, but more as part of an ongoing adventure with the viewer.'”
