LCD Gallery is proud to present "3 Explorations in Luminosity", an exhibit with newly curated, contemporary encaustic paintings by artists: Pamela Beverly-Quigley, Danny Setjo, and Doug Smith. Drawing, painting and photography converge in contemporary abstract paintings, resulting in luminous colors and textures.

Explorations in Luminosity is a group exhibition of encaustic artworks by artists whose art is being exhibited for the first time in Houston. The encaustic process, painting using pigment infused hot wax, is one of the oldest known forms of painting. This wax process technique was notably used in the Fayum mummy portraits from Egypt around 100–300 AD.

The exhibition will be on display from April 19 through June 30, 2018.

Opening Reception: April 19, 2018, 5:30pm - 8:30pm

Shelter in Place: Keliy Anderson-Staley

SITE Gallery Houston presents the inaugural public installation of Keliy Anderson-Staley’s Shelter in Place.

This will be the first presentation of Keliy Anderson-Staley’s temporary sculptural structure, Shelter in Place.
The simple structure, sheathed in original tintype portraits of
hundreds of Houstonians, will be installed in an outdoor space under the
train shed at the Silos.

Each tintype plate is a powerful portrait of an individual and the
entire piece a portrait of the broader community. The structure is an
expression of the strength and resilience of Houston’s communities, but
also our collective fragility and vulnerability in the face of natural
and environmental catastrophe. Although the project has been in
development for a number of years, the project has taken on new
significance in the wake of Harvey, and many of the portraits have been
made since the storm.

The installation will only be up and open to the public for one week, so plan to see it while you can! Refreshments will be served at the opening reception. on April 21.

Shelter in Place was funded in part by the
City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance and by the Cynthia
Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts.

Jamilyn Hull: Deepika

Jamilyn Hull: Deepika - a presentation of photographic works of India

Main Street Projects is pleased to present "Jamilyn Hull: Deepika," a presentation of photographic works from the artist’s travels and volunteer work in Kolkata, India. Presented in conjunction with Houston’s 2018 FotoFest Biennial and Mid Main Houston’s April First Thursday block party, a benefit exhibition will open to the public with a reception in honor of the artist on April 5, 2018, from 6 - 9 pm.

Deepika is the word for a tiny clay lamp. The proceeds from the sale of any of these photographs will be designated to help Deepika Social Welfare Society located in Kolkota, India. In the vast darkness of Sonargachi, the largest red light district in India, a tiny light can shine a long way. The work of Deepika has been to invite prostituted women into a new life by helping educate and equip them to earn living wages for the products that they hand make. The Deepika Social Welfare Society also sponsors evening care centers for children who are at high risk to be caught in the web of their prostituted mothers’ lives and also has a residence program that gives a home to 50 young girls, most whose mothers are trapped in human trafficking. All proceeds from the sale of artworks and Fair Trade items ASDFwill help to light the welcome lamp in the window. Every Fair Trade Item purchased improves the lives of the artisans that made it by supporting their craft and providing a fair, stable income.

About Jamilyn Hull:
Photographer. Missions Coordinator. Daughter, Sister, Servant and Friend to Many. Jamilyn was an advocate for the marginalized and worked diligently to serve the poor and the powerless around the world. Through documenting her experiences to share with communities stateside, organizing mission trips, and facilitating the purchase of Fair Trade items hand-crafted in the communities she visited, the fruits of Jamilyn’s efforts continue to inspire and to encourage service to others.

Jamilyn lived a furious and passionate life on the earth, but her memory and her calling are still challenging us today. Her decision to say "YES." to whatever God asked of her motivated her photography and continues to drive the causes she was passionate about.

Archway Gallery presents Flyover Country: The Past Preserved in the Northern Rockies featuring
photography by artist Larry Garmezy, 
on view April 7 through May 3, 2018.

The artist will be on hand to visit with guests during the
exhibition opening reception on Saturday, April 7th from  5 – 8 p.m. at the gallery and will talk about
his work at 6:30 p.m.

 The remnants of a pioneer past are preserved in the hidden
valleys of the Northern Rockies. There’s a profound beauty in the almost empty,
wide-open expanses portrayed through the images of this show and the large
format of many of the works places the viewer squarely into the landscape. For
Garmezy, the photographs convey, “a healthy dose of respect for the settlers
who survived harsh winters and the hardships of life on a remote frontier.” In
this exhibition, he traces some of the history behind the images and chronicles
small communities which have been left behind in our increasingly urban world. In
the 1970’s and early 1980’s Garmezy spent many summers mapping the geology of
Eastern Idaho and Southwestern Montana. While mapping, he was “adopted” by the
locals; by one specific family in particular. Flyover Country reflects
Garmezy’s re-immersion into the world of his “second family” as the photography
for his current body of work captures the pioneer past he had little time for
as a young geologist. “It’s amazing how well you get to know people and their
link to the land while studying rocks.

In my old Willy’s jeep and on foot miles from any paved
roads, I passed relics of a past far too recent to delay a geologist, but I
remembered the spots knowing that one day I would return,” Garmezy reminisces.
Those hardy people included his “adoptive" mom, who rode on horseback to
attend “The Edie School,” a one-room school house built in 1909, a day’s ride
from the nearest town.

 Through digital deconstruction of details in original
photographic images, the fundamental form and texture, color and light emerge
in Garmezy’s work. Seeing rhythms in the natural world is an offshoot of his
geologic background and much of the work captures the unusual and subtle
patterns he finds at every scale of observation from the microscopic to the
grand panorama. He finds solace in the remote landscape and strives to convey
the serenity of these spaces.

 Although a life-long photographer with a first showing of
his work in 1976, Garmezy’s art career began in earnest in 2007; since then his
work has been exhibited in juried shows in Seattle and Houston, and has been on
view at numerous venues in the Houston area, including a public commission in Bellaire.
His artwork can be found in homes and offices across the U.S. and Europe.
Garmezy is a member of the Houston Center for Photography and the Houston
Visual Arts Alliance. Flyover Country is his third solo show since becoming a
resident artist at Archway Gallery in November 2011.

 Garmezy retired in 2015 from Shell Oil after a 32-year
geologic career, which allowed him to travel the globe. After retirement, he
was honored as a Distinguished Lecturer by the American Association of
Petroleum Geology, and he continues to teach geology at Shell and at numerous
universities across the country.

Ciming Mei's "My Journey with Cranes"


The Art Institute of Houston is 1 of over 80 participating spaces for FotoFest 2018 Biennial. Stop by to witness the incredible works by photgrapher Ciming Mei from March 23 - April 21, 2018.  The opening reception of Mei's My Journey with Cranes will be held on March 23rd from 6-8pm. The presentation will begin at 7 PM.


Artist Statement:

Cranes are symbols of love and longevity in Asia. There are 15 species of cranes on Earth, only 2 species live in North America, but 9 species can be found in China, where photographer C. Mei is originally from. Currently a Houston resident, Mei has been photographing for more than two decades. In 2015, she was interviewed by the British media for her photograph of a red-crowned crane fighting against an invading eagle in Hokkaido, Japan. The story along with the series of photos appeared in major British newspapers including GuardianTimes, and later was chosen as Editor's Choice on National Geography's web site. She has since been photographing cranes non-stop. In her efforts to capture the beauty of the cranes, she has embarked on a journey to trace her roots back to China while discovering the wonders of nature. 

When:
Mar 23, 2018 to Apr 21, 2018
