- 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
- Dates and times you want to teach
- Topic you want to teach
- What, specifically, will students make? How many can they expect to make?
- What's different about this camp that they wouldn't learn somewhere else in Galveston?
- Supplies, equipment needs
- Phone number where I can reach you

vendors and over 1,000 attendees in 2016, the fest continues to grow
apace and 2017 promises to be its biggest year ever.
The theme of this year’s festival is T H E C Y B E R F U T U R E I S N O W !
theme is all about indulging our wildest and most ~aesthetically
robust~ fantasies about our cybernetic future! What does a C Y B E R F U
T U R E look like to you? For those of us who grew up in the 90s, or
spent much of those early consumer PC years immersed in a freshly
created digital universe, we imagined a lush world like the ones in our
coolest screensavers, or that amazing-looking open-world game slash
chatroom we would spend hours in. But what about the DANGERS of
cyberfuture? Will sentient AI rise up and smash the oppressive and
small-minded humans that engineered it? Will we never escape the
all-seeing-eye of targeted advertising until we have to pay-to-play for
What do you see when you look into your crystal
ball emoji? C Y B E R U T O P I A, or C Y B E R D Y S T O P I A ? The
future is yours to decide… Now!

inaugurate it’s 12th Year Anniversary Season, William Reaves | Sarah Foltz Fine
Art is pleased to present, Celebrating Houston’s
Founding Modernists: Featuring David Adickes, Henri Gadbois & Leila
McConnell, consisting of three solo
exhibitions and a display of assorted works by their mid-century peers. As the gallery’s season opener, this exhibition
offers viewers a delightful segue into yet another highly-anticipated season of
art from the Lone Star state.
In 2013, Houston’s mayor issued a proclamation recognizing
the importance of Houston’s Founding Artists and the impact of their
contributions to the city’s vital and ever-growing visual arts scene. The following year in 2014, works by these earlier Houston
painters decorated the walls of City Hall in what was an unprecedented
exhibition. This exhibit acknowledged
the Bayou City’s rich arts legacy and recognized local artists who have made
life-time contributions to the growth of the Houston arts scene.
The Reaves | Foltz mission is dedicated to the
continued promotion and exhibition of the artists who advanced the visual arts
of Texas, and particularly the arts of our own city. Beginning in 2017, Reaves | Foltz plans to
launch this and future exhibition seasons every August with programming dedicated
specifically to honor Houston’s Founding Modernist Artists. With the official
“birth date” for the City of Houston being August 30th, we thought
of no better way than to annually honor these artists and celebrate their
enduring legacy in the city.
Celebrating Houston’s Founding Modernists:
Featuring David Adickes, Henri Gadbois & Leila McConnell, consists of three solo exhibitions, offering
a tribute to these three celebrated Houston greats. The artists have been pillars
of the Bayou City arts scene starting in the 1950s, and have been actively
engaged in creative production for decades since.
David Adickes: In the Beginning features an exquisite selection of the early paintings that
brought him his first notoriety. These early works represent the artist’s
original views and formative renditions of his most favored subjects and
themes. With their distinctive style and superb workmanship, Adickes’ paintings
were incredibly fresh and novel when he first introduced them to Houston in the
Henri Gadbois: Texas Woodlands features works inspired by woodland
landscapes throughout Texas that Gadbois created over the past fifty years. This grouping distinctly demonstrates his
evolving aesthetic from abstraction to more representational renderings of the
land throughout his career. Color,
light, and pattern are all at the core of these sensitive works.
Leila McConnell: The Search focuses on her
ethereal “sky paintings” and intimate collages which transcend time and place. In her distinct style, McConnell creates
evocative compositions using light, color, and atmosphere along with repeated tropes,
such as a sphere, bar, sun, or moon, to explore inner and outer worlds through
an almost metaphysical, life-long search captured in paint.
addition to the one-person shows above, serving as a counterpart, the gallery will also display a selection of period works by
their mid-century peers, including stalwarts of Houston’s former Dubose Gallery
in the 1960s: Lamar Briggs, Bill Condon, Frank Freed, Herb Mears, Kermit
Oliver, Stella Sullivan, and Patricia Waldrip-Taylor.
Celebrating Houston’s Founding Modernists will be on
view August 18- September 9, 2017 at William Reaves | Sarah Foltz Fine Art. The
gallery will host an artist panel discussion on Saturday, August 19th from
4:30-5:30pm, followed by an opening reception from 6-8:30pm.
