Go Forth From Houston: Women in the Arts Take Action

Women in the Arts Take Action

Celebrating the diverse arts scene from the 1970s to the present, “Go Forth from Houston: Women in the Arts Take Action” will feature two days of cultural events, interactive arts programming and live performances focused on the legacies of contemporary women artists working in Houston. Presented by the Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts, the program will be held Nov. 7, 7pm-10 pm, in conjunction with “The National Women’s Conference: Taking 1977 into the 21st Century” event organized by the University of Houston Public History and Women’s Studies departments and taking place at the University of Houston-Main Campus.

Go Forth from Houston will include gallery exhibitions curated and created by women, a live demonstration of Houston’s graffiti talents from five leading female muralists, live dance and music, including a performance by pioneering female-fronted art punk band Mydolls (1978-present) and voter registrars on site in the Wilhelmina Grove arts courtyard. According to Liia Thrasher, an art history and women’s studies graduate student, the dynamic arts programming of the 1977 National Women’s Conference inspired Go Forth from Houston. “This year’s cultural arts programming is a testament to the wealth of talented women in the arts in Houston, as well as the immense support provided by the new Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts, the University of Houston and other local institutions,” she says. Thrasher organized the massive effort with support from faculty, students and local arts and women’s organizations working toward the goals of the ’77 Conference.

The Go Forth From Houston archival exhibition will be on display in conjunction with selected readings in the Blaffer Art Museum Cafe on Nov. 7, 10 am-5 pm. An associated exhibit featuring the work of visual artists Thedra Cullar-Ledford, Anna Mayer, Caroline Ryan, Alexis Pye, and Elizabeth Gates will be on display in the Thirdspace Gallery in the UH School of Art (third floor). Mydolls, a legendary art punk band formed in 1978 and fronted by women artists, will perform at 8:30 pm on Nov. 7 in the Grove, where there will be an associated display of Houston art cars made by women artists. Thedra Cullar-Ledford will be doing live performance art as a part of her new series, The Doll Project. A guided tour of the UH public art collection’s women artists will commence on Nov. 7 at 2 pm. Associated archives and feminist zine displays will also be exhibited in the UH Library during the week of Nov. 6-11.

During the celebration, Mobile Mai’s, a local favorite, female operated food truck, will serve delicious Vietnamese cuisine starting at 7:30 pm on Nov. 7.

Go Forth from Houston is generously sponsored by Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts and Council for Cultural Activities at UH.   

All arts and cultural events programming will be free and open to the public.

Round 47 Opening + Free Market Square

Viewing Period

Gentrification is reshaping the social and physical landscape of Third Ward, threatening the future of this historic African American community. In the face of uncertainty, an unprecedented coalition of churches, nonprofits, community development corporations, business owners, artists, and residents formed the Emancipation Economic Development Council (EEDC). Since its founding in 2015, the EEDC has developed a rigorous set of strategies for revitalizing and protecting this historic neighborhood while preserving its rich African American culture.  

The Act of Doing documents this community-led effort and amplifies the questions of place, displacement, ownership, and creative community organizing addressed by the EEDC. Through a poetic exchange between artists and the pillars of the EEDC, PRH hopes to host a conversation about what it means to engage a community-led effort through preserving, revitalizing, with the goal of protecting a place so rich in culture and history in an evolving city like Houston. 

Throughout the duration of Round 47, artists, residents, and community organizers will collaborate to host a series of workshops, events, and direct actions. These events will support the EEDC in achieving its vision for Third Ward, as “a resilient, dynamic, and economically prosperous community where people live, work and thrive in a historically and culturally rich African-American neighborhood.”  

In conjunction with the opening of the Round, Free Market Square will organize a family friendly market with vendors and performers from the Third Ward and communities across Houston.  

Participating artists include Right to Stay/Right to Say (Zeinab Bakhiet, Olutomi Subulade, & Melanie Meleekah Villegas); Brian Ellison; Danielle Fanfair, Harrison Guy, Marlon Hall, & Anthony Suber; Nikita Hodge; Sofia Mekonnen; and Marc Newsome. Round 47 also features Collaboration Timeline House, designed by Adelle Main.

Brasil Bar / Restaurant / Cafe / Event Venue 

Brasil opened in 1992 as the first specialty coffee establishment in Houston.  The intention was to provide a venue that embodied quality design, products, people, and interaction.  Houston has always been a diverse city, yet Brasil was the first establishment to welcome and encourage a connection between different groups.  The details of the interior, the landscape, the music, the artwork, the staff, and the menu were designed to create interaction in an atmosphere of casual sophistication.

Flatland Gallery 
Originally named Mixture, the gallery has served under iterations such as DOMY Books, The Brandon, and She Works Flexible. The previous Gallery "The Brandon" showcased local, national, and international emerging and professional artists to varied audiences.

Yoga with Letty


Project Row Houses is pleased to present Yoga with Letty, a series of free yoga classes led by artist and creative practitioner Leticia Contreras held two Saturdays each month. Leticia will host light-hearted beginner lessons to introduce the community to vinyasa flow in a public space. This style of yoga involves synchronizing breath with a continuous flow of poses. Through this flow, participants will learn how to quiet the mind and bring ease to the body during these tumultuous times while connecting with the community. These sessions are an opportunity to fall deeper in love with your body, ground yourself in the Third Ward and look forward to the more compassionate journey that awaits you.  

Yoga with Letty will be hosted the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month in the green space next to Delia's Lounge at the intersection of Emancipation Avenue and Francis Street. The location is subject to change contingent on the weather.

NARS International Residency Open Call

NARS is now accepting applications for the International Residency Program from international and US based artists. The NARS residency supports emerging and mid-career artists and curators working across all disciplines through three and six-month residencies, creating a space for artistic dialogue and international cultural exchange for an extended period of time. 

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.
