This month, join HCCC current resident artist Angel Oloshove to explore color, form, and texture by creating abstract monoprints.

Participants will experiment with color theory and shapes to create an expressive composition. Through exploring the color wheel, learn how to create new shades by mixing primary colors, and use both complimentary and contrasting colors to add a layer of texture to your print. Discover how Angel uses color combinations, such as ombre color pairs and organic shapes, in her own ceramic works and prints.

To find inspiration for your abstract shapes, visit Angel’s studio, the Craft Garden, and the new exhibition, Treachery of Material: The Surrealist Impulse in Craft. Then, unleash your imagination to create your own dynamic monoprint!

Note: Please allow 25 minutes to complete this activity. The activity will take place indoors and is on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last.

About Angel Oloshove
Angel Oloshove studied painting at California College of the Arts and later worked in graphic design and toy development in Tokyo. In 2009, she turned her focus to developing her studio practice in ceramic sculpture. Her work often experiments with painterly glazes to express feelings of transcendental experiences through form and color.  She has balanced a fine-art practice of sculptural ceramics with having her own line of functional design pottery, which is stocked in boutiques throughout the country, including Asher Gallery. Her exhibition, Floating Worlds, was selected as a “Critic’s Pick” for the April, 2015, issue of Artforum.  In 2015, she was named one of “Ten Modern Ceramists Shaping the Future” by AnOther Magazine. Angel’s ceramic designs and artworks were shown at the inaugural Texas Design Fair at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston. She has also exhibited at Gallery Hanahou (New York), Front St. Gallery (Oakland, CA), and several arts institutions across Japan. For more information on Angel’s work, please visit

HANDS-ON HOUSTON is a free drop-in event held the first Saturday of every month. Each month, a teaching artist demonstrates a craft related to the current exhibitions. Families and children of all ages are welcome to come any time between 11 AM and 3 PM and participate in a 15 – 20 minute activity. Materials are provided. This program supports HCCC’s mission to advance education about the process, product, and history of craft. Learn more here.

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. 


  • 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.

Reply by JANUARY 15th to be considered!!!

Zine Fest Houston 2017


This year the annual Zine Fest Houston event will be at Lawndale
Art Center on Saturday, November 11 from 1-7 PM! Zine Fest Houston 2017
is open to the public free of charge and all ages are welcome. With 100+
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
ad-free vision?

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!

Programming during the day
includes “Zine Distros in the Digital Age: Releasing Your Work via
Blockchain” presented by Conner Clifton, a lecture by Houston Anarchist
Black Cross, a live podcast recording with Veer Queer, an all inclusive
LGBTQ+ podcast based out of Houston, TX, and a screening of selected
zine clips as well as a teen zine workshop and animation workshop with
DIY Animation Club.

3:15-4:00 PM Spotlight On: Anarchist Black Cross Houston Chapter
4:15-5:00 PM Screening of Selected Zine Clips

Fest Houston is a local volunteer-run organization and annual event
dedicated to promoting zines, comics, and other forms of small press,
alternative, underground DIY media and art. It is also a grassroots
attempt to build the local zine, DIY, and alternative media scenes and
form networks with media creators in other areas. ZFH is committed to
providing accessible space to celebrate self-publishing and small
presses, encouraging the distribution of independent art, writing, and
media primarily through the medium of zines. The goal of the event is

DIY art and media projects.

Celebrating Houston’s Founding Modernists: Featuring David Adickes, Henri Gadbois & Leila McConnell

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
, 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
early 1950s. 

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.

Feminist art today
The history of feminist art starting in the 1970's up until now has been filled with controversy, turbulence, progress and backlashes against women, women's art, and its place in art history. A question emerges: What is feminist art? And more accurately what is feminist art today?

NARS offers 24/7 access to furnished, private or semi-private studio spaces (280-325 sq ft) in our diverse artist community in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. As a studio based residency, the focus is on the artistic process and the experimentation that results from working alongside other artists, within New York's cultural and sociopolitical context. 

Artists meet with 4-6 studio visitors each month, gaining invaluable feedback and expanding their network of artists and professionals in NY and internationally. Residents are provided with administrative, curatorial, and professional support to explore and expand the scope of their artistic practice through research, dialogue, and the production of new projects.

Public presentation opportunities include a curated exhibition in the NARS gallery, bi-annual Open Studios, and theEntree/Encore program, through which artists share research and work through artist talks, discussions, screenings, workshops, and performances. The NARS Gallery hosts exhibitions year-round.

Residency artists benefit from a community driven program and ongoing dialogue with fellow residency artists through weekly informal gatherings, inter-studio visits and activities, as well as monthly field trips and meals together. At NARS, residents also have the advantage of working alongside 60 emerging and established NYC based artists in our studio facilities, who retain space year round. The program and facilities are designed to form a community, foster the expansion and exchange of artistic and cultural practices, and provide artists with exposure to New York and its art scene. 

Accepting applications from international artists for a 3 or 6 month residency in 2018-9 and from US-based artists for the Winter and Spring 2018 seasons.
