MYSTIC LYON is happy to present Introduction to Urban Sketching with artist Siver Black. This free workshop will take place at Mystic Lyon, 5007 Lyons Avenue (Fifth Ward) on Saturday, June 15 from 1-3pm. This workshop is free to attend and materials will be provided.

In this workshop artist Siver Black will introduce you to the world of Urban Sketching. Urban Sketching is the activity of drawing on location from observation, with the intent of capturing a sense of place. Urban Sketching changes the way you experience a place by slowing down and really looking.

Siver Black will discuss how Urban Sketching is a part of his artistic practice, how it provided the inspiration for his installation at Mystic Lyon, and how you can get started with simple materials. We will look at examples, talk about what makes an Urban Sketch, and then we will draw together inside and outside the Mystic Lyon Art Space.

This workshop is open to all ages and skill levels- anyone who likes to draw! Materials will be provided.

CURRENTLY ON VIEW AT MYSTIC LYON:
Siver Black's print installation, “Nickel Views,” includes multiple hand drawn images of the Fifth Ward brought together into on large woodblock print.

From the artist (edits): My art at Mystic Lyon combines my love of urban sketching with woodcut printmaking. I began by using Lyons Avenue for my inspiration and starting point, making drawings of the neighborhood on location, from Des Chaumes to Lockwood. These sketches feature buildings as well as people with the intent of capturing a sense of place. Some of the places I have drawn are churches, barber shops, the Fifth Ward Jam, De Luxe Theater, the old hospital, Cane River Gardens, and various homes.

ALSO ON VIEW:
Kelly Moran's print installation, Urban Animals, includes images of local bayou critters. From the artist: “I ride my bike on the bayou in Houston and have observed many types of birds that live in this urban habitat. I also have walked in the creeks that are connected to the Bayou and have found some beautiful fish. In my studio practice, I have made some etchings of these magnificent creatures.”
This June, Moran will lead a free, community workshop inspired by the show.

ABOUT SIVER BLACK:
My work is based in drawing. I carry a sketchbook everywhere. For me the act of drawing on location celebrates a place and what it means to be there in that time. I search for connection through these drawings; drawing a place connects me to that place and drawing a person connects me to that person.
Some of these drawings need to live outside the sketchbook and that is when they become the basis for relief prints. I have a deep fascination for the traditional methods and materials of woodcut printmaking. I am drawn to the feel of the tools cutting through wood, the smell of the ink and the sound it makes while being rolled out, and the graphic punch of black ink.

ABOUT MYSTIC LYON:
Mystic Lyon is located on the corner of Lyons Avenue and Mystic Street in Houston's historic Fifth Ward neighborhood. In addition to public art installations, Mystic Lyon offers weekly organic food deliveries, house concerts, meditation and sound sessions, and reading groups. It also plays host to the Fifth Ward Badminton Club, Root Lock Sessions and the Fifth Ward Chamber of Commerce.

Recreational Aesthetics: Observational Listening and Drawing in the Neighborhood


MYSTIC
LYON is hosting
Recreational
Aesthetics: Observational Listening and Drawing Series
by
artist Emily Sloan. The series will take place on three Saturdays
including June 8, 15 and 22 from 10:30am-12:00pm. The series is free
to attend.


The
series features drawing and listening scores by Emily Sloan inspired
by the late experimental sound composer Pauline Oliveros. These
drawing and sonic meditations are part of a series of artist lead
workshops referred to as Recreational Aesthetics and are funded in
part by a Let Creativity Happen Grant from Houston Arts Alliance and
the City of Houston.


ABOUT
RECREATIONAL AESTHETICS:

Recreational
Aesthetics takes inspiration for its name from Relational Aesthetics,
a term coined and defined by French art critic Nicolas Bourriaud
referring to art that is participatory. Recreational Aesthetics has
similar traits with a particular focus on fun, play, improvisation,
the experimental and happenings that expand our experiences of what
art is. Its also a tool for avoiding tired "art speak" and
trendy labels (as Relational Aesthetics has sometimes become).


ABOUT
THE ARTIST:
Emily Sloan is an artist, curator and educator. Her
art practice has led her on many adventures including a faux burning
house, Victorian lampshades on City of Houston lamp posts, messages
on the ground out of mulch and debris, misting shade clouds made out
of lampshades, Mobile Nap Deliveries, funeral wakes for the undead,
baptisms out of a pick-up truck, an art gallery in a refrigerator, a
neighborhood badminton club, founding the Fifth Ward Chamber of
Commerce and opening Mystic Lyon--an art space in Houston’s
historic Fifth Ward.

“MASTERS” A Solo Exhibition by KaDavien Baylor

www.baylorgallery.com

ARKA art space will be the host of “MASTERS” a solo exhibition by KaDavien Baylor. A “interactive” art show composed of pieces full of introspective, fun, and enlightening subject matter. Featuring live music from Violinist Dallas Williams and DJ Ezla and refreshments by Chef Yemi.

As a nationally recognized charcoal and abstract artist KaDavien is fascinated with studies of human action and power of thought. His work gracefully visualizes the truths and depths of the world through figurative presentation. The elements of highlights and shadows cause a hyper realism in his work in which differs from photo realism and brings light to his strenuous layering and blending process.

KaDavien received a BFA from Louisiana Tech University in which he developed a passion for the technical application of charcoal as main source of medium versus use as undertone for painting. His works have been featured in several group shows in Houston, TX and Louisiana

Redbud Gallery is proud to present “MishMash”, a selection of works of several artists working in various media, showcasing both emerging and well-established artists.

Some of the works have not been shown in Houston to my knowledge.  They include a large diptych by University of Houston educated Texas artist Julian Schnabel, a long worked on piece by the legendary Menil collected Ben Culwell, and a rare female created painting of Leda and the swan by Maryland Institute College of Art grad Amita Bhatt.  Sculpture is represented by a glistening hanging hare by Emily Cheney of Houston Baptist University (HBU).

Corinne Jones from East Texas displays a shadow Mockingbird and Barbara Biel presents one of her recent mysterious landscapes.  Recent HBU MFA grads: Crystal Murley exhibits powerful abstracts accented with numerous surface details and Honduran Celea Guevara debuts powerful figurative as well as cultural-based drawings and linocuts comparable to the prints of the great Elizabeth Catlett.  A wonderful large painting of a priest by Chicago imagist Ray Donley adorns the east walls.  Rounding out the exhibit are: a seldom seen early James Surls pencil erotic surrealistic drawing, a powerful intriguing landscape canvas by HBU Professor, Carlos Canul, and an early, rarely seen large House Nude by Fresh Paint artist Ron Hoover.

Please come and join us to see this intriguing exhibit at Redbud West Gallery.  Unfortunately, some of the artists will not be present for obvious reasons.

Selected Paper Works by Female Surrealists: Tanning, Bourgeois, Carrington, Maar, Toyen - Opening at Redbud Gallery

Contact Name:
Gus Kopriva
Contact Phone:
713-854-4246


Redbud East Gallery is proud to present a selection of paper works from Dorothea Tanning, Louise Bourgeois, Leonora Carrington, Dora Maar, and Toyen.  On view: June 1 - August 27, 2019.  The Menil Collection is due to mount a Tanning exhibition this mid-year.

During the founding days of the Gallery, I was fortunate to have Walter Hopps, the Founding Director of The Menil Collection, advise me on many matters related to gallery operations and collecting.  I asked Walter one day, "Who should I collect?"  Without hesitation, he answered, "Female surrealists.  They are undervalued and underappreciated."  I took him to heart.

Developed by Andre Breton in Paris in the early 1920’s, Surrealism is defined as psychic automatism, by which one proposes to express, in any manner, the real functioning of thought.

Tanning, born in Illinois, lived in Paris, then returned to New York upon her marriage to Max Ernst in 1946.  Throughout the mid-1940s and 1950s, Tanning was influenced by Man Ray, Ernst, and others.  Tanning’s works developed into symbolic and feminist Surrealism.  Infused with high coloration, her works are typically filled with suspended motion.  Subtle sexuality abounds in her art.  The post-war era began to affect Tanning’s work significantly, especially during 1955 when her work radically shifted to reflect facets of consciousness, reality, sleep, dreams, and the mind.

Many of the etchings in this show are from the portfolio in En chair et en or / In flesh and in gold (Editions Georges Visat, 1973).

Other surrealists in this exhibition include the muse of Salvador Dali, Dora Maar, Louise Bourgeois, Leonora Carrington, and the Czech artist Toyen (Marie Cerminova).
