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.

This exhibit brings us the contemplation of a simple cup of coffee as symbolic and full of meaning. The artist combined a highly industrialized product, the recycled coffee capsules, with a handcrafted product, the recycled silk and cotton yarns which she used to bind and keep the capsules together.

Now Hiring Art Teachers for 2018 Spring Break Art Camps

Design your camp, your way.

Art Professors, please pass this along to any upper-level students or recent graduates who you think would be good candidates.

Camp Dates are Monday – Friday, March 12-16, 2018

9:00-12:00 and/or 1:00-4:00*

Camps are 3 hours a day for 5 days, and allow students to dive into a specific topic or medium and explore it in some depth over the course of the week.

One camp should be for ages 5-8 and one for ages 9-12
You can opt to teach both camps for a solid 7-hour day (you'll get paid for 7 hours) or you can just pick one or the other.

If you can't do all 5 days, you can split the days between yourself and another teacher, but you need to work together on your plan for the week so it's a cohesive experience for the kids.   
You can also team-teach together at the same time if you're willing to split the pay.  

I will also be there every day to welcome the kids, get them checked in, do introductions, etc. and assist throughout the day as needed. 

ASSETS:

  • WE HAVE A PRINTING PRESS!!!!  This one, in fact.  It's a very nice piece of equipment, I'd ask that kids never use it unsupervised. You'll probably want to be the one setting it up and maybe just let them turn the wheel. 
  • We can have a screen printing frames March; we'll need them anyway for the adult course in screen printing we're starting in April.
  • 6 digital cameras with tripods.  These are simple point-and-shoot and suitable for kids to use.  We can get parents to sign waivers if you want to do a photography walk-about in
    the downtown/strand neighborhood. 
  • 10+ bags of raw wool and silk for felting projects (dyed various beautiful colors)
  • We have access to several kilns with nearby businesses/organizations that can do both bisque and glaze firings.  There is staff on-site to help with them, too.
  • Digital projector and projection screen
  • Drying racks, 8 easels, and 16 adjustable-angle drafting table tops
  • All the basic supplies for painting, drawing and sculpting

I hope that gives you some ideas!  If you have an idea that requires specific materials, let me know and I'll see if I can make it happen.

Please Include:
  1. Dates and times you want to teach
  2. Topic you want to teach 
  3. What, specifically, will students make?  How many can they expect to make?
  4. What's different about this camp that they wouldn't learn somewhere else in Galveston?
  5. Supplies, equipment needs
  6. Phone number where I can reach you
I will reply within two days and we can discuss teaching rates, materials to prepare, resources, brainstorm about details, etc.

Being More than One

Nicole Anona Banowetz: Being More than One

Gray Contemporary is pleased to announce Nicole Anona Banowetz: Being More than One. For her first solo exhibition with Gray Contemporary Nicole Anona Banowetz’s work will be displayed in the Main Gallery. Exhibition opens Saturday, January 13th from 5 - 8 pm, and will continue through February 17th, 2018. 


Nicole Anona Banowetz:


Nicole Anona Banowetz is a Denver sculptor who makes sewn inflatable sculptures. Her artwork addresses vulnerability and struggle. Her forms move freely between growth and decay blurring the distinction between decoration and disease. Banowetz’s work is inspired by the natural world. She addresses human qualities while using the imagery she finds in the animal, plant, mineral, and bacterial worlds. All these forms she recreates in soft inflatable sculptures, which she designs and sews on her sewing machine. In her show for Gray Contemporary she has selected works which are inspired by complex natural connections. The forms straddle the line between symbiotic and parasitic relationships. Her large white fabric forms, while drawn from nature, feel foreign and surreal, transforming the galley into a strange and vibrating landscape.




About the Artist:

Nicole Anona Banowetz (b.1981, Fort Collins, CO) has exhibited large outdoor works at the Amsterdam Light festival in the Netherlands, in OpenArt in Sweden, in the Biennial of the Americas in Denver, CO, and on the island of Kronstadt in Russia for the National Center for Contemporary Arts, Ministry of the Russian Federation. She has had selected solo shows in the Kreuzberg Pavillon in Berlin, Germany, in the Baltic Gallery of Contemporary Art in Ustka, Poland, in the Museum of Outdoor Arts in Englewood, CO, Pirate Contemporary Art in Denver, CO, and in Ironton in Denver, CO. She received her BFA in sculpture from Colorado State University. She currently lives in works in Denver, CO.

Opening reception for Robert Frank: Books and Films, 1947–2017

Join Houston Center for Photography and Steidl for the opening of an experimental exhibition showing the work of the great Robert Frank on newsprint.

Opening Reception from 5:30-8:00pm
Gerhard Steidl Lecture at 6:00pm
On view: December 8, 2017 - January 5, 2018

Join Houston Center for Photography and Steidl for the opening of an experimental exhibition showing the work of the great Robert Frank on newsprint.

Conceived by Robert Frank and Gerhard Steidl, this exhibition shows Frank’s work in photos, books and films in a direct accessible manner. Frank’s images are printed on sheets of newsprint and hung on the walls or from the ceiling. Frank’s films and videos, which are so often overshadowed by his photographic work are shown on small portable “beamers”, projecting them directly onto the walls. Each exhibition is to be disposed of after display, thus circumventing the normal cycle of speculation and consumption in the art market. When the idea for this pop-up show first reached Frank in his small, crooked house in the Canadian village of Mabou, he said: “Cheap, quick, and dirty, that’s how I like it!”

Inspired by Robert Frank: Publishing the Photobook in the 21st Century

The Museum’s Hirsch Library and the Houston Center for Photography (HCP) jointly present this panel discussion about the current environment in the field of photography and photobooks, as well as perspectives on the future.

Held in the Brown Auditorium Theater at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

Moderator: Ashlyn Davis, executive director, Houston Center for Photography | Introduced by Jon Evans, chief librarian and archivist, MFAH

Panel participants:
• Alejandro Cartagena, photographer and editor
• Manfred Heiting, designer, editor, and collector
• Kevin Messina, publisher and editor
• Gerhard Steidl, printer and publisher

The publishing of Robert Frank's landmark photobook, The Americans (1959), inspired generations of photographers to embark upon their own artistic careers. His searing views of postwar America created a new kind of poetry for the medium that was distinctly tied to the form of the photobook, and subsequently inspired generations of photographers to use the photobook in unconventional and impactful ways. Surprisingly, the digital age in which we live has spawned a photobook renaissance, with increased interest in publishing, collecting, and scholarly research in the field.

The Museum’s Hirsch Library and the Houston Center for Photography (HCP) jointly present this panel discussion about the current environment in the field of photography and photobooks, as well as perspectives on the future. This program, which brings together a distinct group of leaders in the field, is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Robert Frank: Books and Films, 1947–2017, on view at HCP from December 8, 2017, through January 5, 2018.

For more than three decades, the MFAH has had a commitment to Frank’s work through its collection of more than 400 of the artist’s photographs, distribution of many of his films, virtually complete holdings of his books, and maquettes for two seminal book works, The Americans and Lines of My Hand.

Call of Dudy – Bohemian Bagpipes Across Borders

Bagpipes are generally associated with the Celtic Fringe of Europe, but one of the richest and ethnically diverse bagpipe traditions can be found in Central Europe. In the Czech Lands and in Neighboring Bavaria this traditions once became marginalized and almost disregarded. Yet this historical musical form has survived and even managed to renew itself, to develop further on a regional scale – crossing national and linguistic borders. Call of Dudy captures the people and places which are keeping this centuries – old tradition alive today for future generations.

 Please also enjoy our free popcorn & snacks!

Ron Ulicny: Raison d'etre


Industrious and reflective describe his latest creations and the artist himself, as Ron Ulicny makes
his triumphant return to Houston with a new series of signature sculptures. The
minimalist/surrealist works are both cerebral and amusing, as Ulicny uses carefully selected and
masterfully manipulated material to portray the workings of his mind. His latest solo exhibition,
Raison d’être, includes stunning wall-mounted and free-standing sculptures fabricated from
galvanized steel ducting. Ulicny embodies the meaning of the French phrase, as he brings his
relationship with his craft to the forefront of all that he does and shares it with the intrigued
audience. Every piece represents one of an infinite number of reasons for living and being an
artist. Ulicny is no stranger to taking risks with complete dedication and purpose.

Eyes of the Storm: HCC's Visual Arts Response to Hurricane Harvey


The Center of Excellence for Visual and Performing Arts presents

Eyes of the Storm: HCC's Visual Art Response to Hurricane Harvey

Reception:  Wednesday, October 11, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
In The Gallery: October 11 - November 1
HCC Central Gallery, 3517 Austin at Holman

Hurricane Harvey evoked in every Houstonian a reaction, private yet shared, to the storm's devastation and to the inspiring response from neighbors and strangers alike.  In Eyes of the StormHCC Visual Arts invites its students, faculty, and staff to examine the impact of this catastrophic event on their lives and on their community. This group encompasses young and old, immigrants and native Texans, people of every color and from every neighborhood, professional artists and those who have never touched a paintbrush.  Participants, using art materials supplied in the gallery, will create a piece expressing their experience of Harvey and then attach it to the gallery walls in a pattern reflecting their location in the city. This collaborative installation will become a kind of map of the places and events that shaped our lives for several tumultuous days.

The exhibit will include a video, interviews with the participants, an oral history of a history-making event, a storm that tore down houses and built community.

This adventure in experiential storytelling will open with a reception October 11, 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM and will be in the HCC Central Gallery through November 1. Gallery Hours: Monday - Thursday, 9:00 AM - 9:00 PM, Friday & Saturday, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM, closed Sunday. For more information, call 713-718-6600.
