A Musical Tribute

Community Artists' Collective

Visual artist and creative
consultant Mack Bishop’s newest 
exhibition opening at the Community Artists’ Collective celebrates Black
Music Month with paintings of the iconic musical figures who opened America’s
doors for all creatives of color.

 “A Musical Tribute,”
featuring portraits of Aretha Franklin, Beyonce, Whitney Houston and Nipsey
Hustle, opens with a reception Saturday, June 8, from 3 to 5 p.m. The exhibit,
curated by Dominic R. Clay, runs through June 29.

For the last two years, Bishop has taken a departure from
his core thesis work to explore new mediums and themes. As the experimental
phase continued, musical narratives began to develop. Bishop’s works are known
for his use of found objects and shattered glass incorporations while using
emotive spiritual motifs to strengthen his narrative. The current exhibition, “A
Musical Tribute,” holds true to this
same narrative while adding a few new materials.

Bishop’s
exhibition would not be complete without his signature sculpture. He will be
exhibiting two never-before-seen sculptural works from his new series titled
“Fragments of Muziki.”

Mack Bishop III has a BFA
from Texas Southern University and an MFA from Houston Baptist University,
specializing in painting, drawing, sculpture, digital art and film.

He says of his work,
"As an artist I understand that the legacy of my ancestors must dissolve
into a new purpose, undertaking an evolution of fragmented mending between the
conscious and subconscious mind."

The Collective is open during the exhibition Thursdays,
Fridays and Saturdays from 12 noon until 5 p.m. and by appointment.

Jun 8, 2019 to Jun 29, 2019

Gao Hang: Surface or Skin and Suzette Mouchaty: Nudies in the Cube


Artists Reception: Friday,
June 14
,
6:00 - 8:30 PM

Exhibition
Catalog Available

 

Anya
Tish Gallery is thrilled to announce two solo exhibitions opening this summer:
Gao Hang, Surface or Skin and Suzette Mouchaty, Nudies in the Cube.
Utilizing their mediums, Hang - painting, Mouchaty - sculpture, both artists
create discourse, either concerning the impact of social media’s instant
gratification and image manipulation on our society or addressing the effects of
global warming on the environment.

 

Gao
Hang’s
quietly electric paintings of abstracted, reconfigured sharks
are rendered in multilayered fluorescent hues that the artist considers to be
the tones of his generation.
Evoking the postmodernist neo-pop movement, Hang uses subject
matter and color as a conceptual and structural armature and is able to tap
into the zeitgeist of the age of social media. His work intentionally engages
the aesthetics of the internet and our glowing digital devices in an effort to
compete for attention amongst the rapid viewing mechanics of the 21st century.  

 

Hang moved to Houston, Texas in
2015 from Beijing, China to attain an MFA in Painting from the University of
Houston. His work has been exhibited in numerous art venues, such as Art League
Houston, Houston, Texas; Lawndale Art Center, Houston, Texas; Baoli World Trade
Center Expo, Guangzhou, China; Art Museum of Capital Normal University,
Beijing, China; and CICA Museum of Art, Gimpo, Korea. Hang published an artist
book, “Good Times Bad Times Give Me Some of That,” which gives a humorous insight
into the struggle of immigrating to the United States.

 

Suzette
Mouchaty’s

nudibranch series is composed of three human-scale sculptures representing
giant marine slugs that are made from coated hand-carved Styrofoam. The forms
are stylized, emphasizing the smooth rounded curves, undulating bodies, and
sharp color contrasts characteristic of nudibranchs found in coral reefs.
Elegant, sensuous, and slightly mysterious, these creatures appear to crawl
around the floor of the gallery
. Implicit are political
implications of the chosen content and sculpting material; nudibranchs are
indicators of climate change, which is damaging coral reef ecosystems, while
Styrofoam sickens and kills marine animals that mistake floating bits for food.
Mouchaty’s goal is to stimulate awareness about
today’s state of ecology by presenting strange, yet compelling objects that
attract the viewer.

 

Mouchaty is a sculptor based in
Houston, Texas, who graduated with a Master of Fine Arts from the University of
Houston. She attained her PHD from Lund University, Lund, Sweden. Mouchaty has
won numerous awards and her work has been exhibited locally in Lawndale Arts
Center, Houston, Texas; Glassell School of Art, Houston, Texas; and in the 52nd
Annual National Drawing and Small Sculpture Show
, Corpus Christi, Texas.

Painting on Silk Workshop


Instructor: Inga Strause-Godejord



In this session you will learn the basic approaches to silk painting and will create delicate and dynamic patterns of color and texture on your silks. Leave with a small frameable landscape-based silk painting. Unlike some types of dyes, those provided in class can be set with a regular household iron, making this easier and much safer method for these techniques.

About the Instructor

Inga Strause Godejord graduated from the Applied Art College, Design Department (1989) and received her Bachelor's degree in painting from the Riga Academy of Arts (1995).

Having lived in Norway, Canada and the US for many productive years, she now lives in Houston, working in her home studio. In Inga's own words: "I have been painting with dyes on silk for many years, and can't wait to get to my studio each day. Working with silk dyes gives me the freedom to create paintings that are vivid in color and sophisticated in detail.



Get creative, bring your friends and unwind.

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.
