Two Solo Exhibitions

Opening Reception: Friday, March 9, 6:00-8:00 PM
Samara Gallery is pleased to present two solo exhibitions in association with FotoFest 2018, The Woods Journal by Barbra Riley and Traveling the Road to Nowhere by Marti Corn.
Riley’s recent relocation to central Texas is the major influence in the artwork she has made since living and working in the natural environment surrounding her. In her exhibition “The Woods Journal,” Riley presents a poem about this change in her surroundings accompanied by dream-like photographs.
Traveling the Road to Nowhere is a solo exhibition of works honoring those searching for purpose in Kakuma, a refugee camp in Kenya. Marti Corn. calls attention to the refugee crisis through photographs, mixed media, and video works of people currently living in the refugee camp Kakuma, Kenya.

Curator and Artists' Talks at 6:00pm
Exhibition on view: March 9 - April 29, 2018
Houston Center for Photography presents For Freedoms: Margin and Center
Margin and Center brings together several artists from around the world whose work explores the edges of identities, geographies, disciplines and ideas, and identifies—through various modes of seeing—physically, psychologically and culturally constructed separations that determine where we are supposed to go and who we are supposed to be. These divisions take the form of walls, bodies, histories, or, as when writer bell hooks—whose writing inspired the title of this exhibition—grew up in rural Kentucky, the train tracks that divided her town between black and white.
JoMar Visions is proud to host the solo show "Rituals" for the amazing established artist Marcela Garcia Bonini. The artist has been awarded many times internationally throughout her artistic career and many of her works are in private and Corporate collections in Argentina, Italy, France, Germany, Sweden, Spain , Colombia and the US.
