December 7 - May 24, 2020
A two person exhibition featuring work by Travis Whitfield & Jesse Lott.
“The exhibition, The Road So Far, is at once recollective and visionary, featuring tightly focused selections of each artist’s work that examine their use of various media, techniques and each artist’s relationship with their physical environment.
Lott and Whitfield both have deep roots in Texas and Louisiana. They also have diverse perspectives shaped by their paths in life. The exhibition will feature an installation by Whitfield that includes a full-size “Shotgun House” containing artifacts and photographs from Northern Louisiana, where Whitfield lives and has a studio. Throughout the museum, the exhibition will also feature a new series of drawings by Lott, in addition to several works of his sculpture in wood, metal and paper. Lott’s work, often referred to as Urban Frontier Art, explores many styles, including abstract and figurative, and often includes found objects and materials from the urban landscape and his neighborhood in Houston’s Fifth Ward.
This exhibition surveys a wide gamut of scale, thought, intuition and community as reflected by each artist. From the small figurines to the life-size shotgun house, Lott and Whitfield provide social, historical and political commentary via the lens of their respective observations of the world around them. The exhibit will also feature multimedia works that open visitors to the cultural and fundamental backgrounds that led each artist to their current place.
The opening reception, December 7th, will feature live music by Grammy-winning zydeco artist Chubby Carrier and the Bayou Swamp Band, as well as light refreshments. This exhibit is curated by Ann Harithas, the museum’s founder and executive director.”
