“Perception” will display Chatterley's recent work including ceramic sculptures and two-dimensional mixed media pieces, all with a theme of personal, fantasy, and social commentary.


The exhibit will be on display from September 8 through October 27, 2018.

Opening Reception: September 8 from 6pm to 9pm


Artist Statement:

“Everything is either moving toward or away from nothingness. Life, death, creation and destruction, this is the world I find myself in. I want my art to echo these thoughts. Everything in a state of flux, changing and reforming. A sense of decay along with life. Nothing is permanent and nothing stays the same. I also try to show thoughts and feelings of the human condition. Beauty in the malformed, acceptance of the inevitable. I am doing work of our time for our time, even though I look to the past, the dead, for inspiration.”

About the Artist and his Art:

Artist Mark Chatterley lives and works in Michigan.  He creates two-dimensional work, but is renowned for his three-dimensional, larger than life, ceramic sculptures that often focus on the human condition.  His imagery has a primordial presence, transcending time, and touches on proportions, relationships and survival.  Chatterley’s interest in past cultures, world religions and belief systems is threaded throughout his work.

Averaging use of 18,000 pounds of clay in a given year, Chatterley works using the slab technique to build his sculptures.  In his 700 cubic foot kiln, he bisque fires his creations and then works his crater glazes onto the forms before firing until the pieces are vitrified.  The painstaking process results in surfaces that feature distinctive craters and flowing details.

When asked about where his ideas come from, Chatterley says, “We are all made up of past experiences and beliefs.  That makes each one of us unique, all creating from different places in our lives. Building on past ideas is how we explore and grow.  As an artist, art making can be like that. I put ideas together to see what happens.”

Rachel Gardner "Awakening" Opening at Redbud Gallery

Contact Name:
Gus Kopriva

“Awakening” is a body of work focusing on the wild, overgrown, and enchanted natural world. This series alludes to the idea of the domesticated gone feral. Sharing scenes of new growth and oneness between the creature and land in nature. The imagery becomes a meditation on what creation may be like if left alone by the hand of man to flourish. Through large and small-scale sculptures and mixed media paintings, animals have a strong presence as they roam and become one with moody, inhibited spaces. These haunting, yet whimsical works, are looking to evoke the imagination and “awaken” the human soul. 

The exhibit will be on display from September 8 through September 30, 2018.
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 8 from 6pm to 9pm.
The Berlin Food Factory food truck will be at the reception. Mathias and Silke Bugge will prepare and sell their one of a kind authentic brats and German food.

Owner, Carla Bisong founded Bisong Art Gallery in 2013 inside a 1300sqft loft located in downtown Houston, Texas. She brings her love for marketing and art while providing a platform for artists and art lovers to connect. The gallery is deeply rooted in the community  providing workshops, painting classes, weddings and corporate receptions.

Bisong Art Gallery personally selects artists who use the highest quality of materials in order to ensure their artwork will last for many years to come.

Many first time collectors feel intimidated to purchase their first original artwork. We make the process enjoyable with personalized service and will not complete the sale until you are 100% satisfied.

Art has the ability to inspire, uplift, and enrich a person’s life. Therefore, it is Bisong Art Gallery’s goal to be a platform that connects artists and buyers. We believe everyone should release their inner creativity and everyone should have at least one piece of original art in their home or office.

Tom Nussbaum: Recent Constructions - Opening Reception

Tom Nussbaum: Recent Constructions

Tom Nussbaum: Recent Constructions

Octavia Art Gallery | Houston

                             

 

July 14 – August 31, 2018

 

Octavia Art Gallery is pleased to present Tom Nussbaum: Recent Constructions. Included in this exhibition are Nussbaum’s jovial sculptures, mobiles, paintings, prints, and installations.

 

Tom Nussbaum works from his studios in East Orange, NJ and Burlington Flats, NY. His intuitive and colorful sculptures are created out of welded steel and paint. They reference vessels and baskets, the architectural frameworks of buildings and towers, and the human figure. His paintings and prints reflect the three-dimensional works in terms of color and the freedom that they convey. Nussbaum’s current body of work is an exploration of connections between the human figure and forms found in nature, art, architecture, and technology. Many of these works also reflect his life-long interest in creative practices found outside of the main-stream art world, such as folk art, sign painting, quilt making, indigenous architecture, and hand-made objects from around the world.

 

Tom Nussbaum: Recent Constructions includes several free-standing sculptures that are delicate in appearance, but constructed of sturdy welded steel rods and wire. These artworks are rooted in a methodological approach to architecture and objects, as exemplified in both Watership andDon Quixote. Using the same techniques, Nussbaum also creates relief paintings that hang slightly off the wall, each casting its own unique galaxy of shadows. His work is also informed by the history of abstract art in both painting and sculpture, and a formal exploration of color and form, as seen in the large wall work East Orange Boogie Woogie, which directly references the 1943 Piet Mondrian painting Broadway Boogie Woogie. The centerpiece of the exhibit is Nussbaum’s 34’ long wall installation Step Right Up. Built especially for this exhibition, this exuberant and expansive wall relief brings together many of the themes running throughout the show.

 

Tom Nussbaum has been a visiting artist and lecturer at the University of Minnesota, Montclair State University, and Rowan University, NJ. He has served on award juries for the Sculpture Space residency program, NY; the Scholastic Art Awards, NY, and for both the New Jersey and Pennsylvania State Arts grant programs. He was awarded two New Jersey State Individual Artist Fellowships and has been a three time MacDowell Colony Fellow. Nussbaum’s work has been exhibited throughout the United States and internationally; he has completed over thirty site-specific public works in plazas, train stations, schools, hospitals, libraries, environmental centers, and playgrounds. Nussbaum’s work is found in several public and private collections including the Montclair Museum of Art, NJ; Princeton Public Library, NJ; New Jersey Transit, NJ; Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centers, NJ; Chase Manhattan Bank, NY; Hasbro Inc., RI, among others.

Park-SmART Precinct One - Arts & Culture Forum

Park-SmART Precinct One Arts & Culture Forum, an evening of conversation and drinks to celebrate the role of artists and the arts in creating compelling, welcoming, beautiful parks and open space for all.

Commissioner Rodney Ellis and Public Art and Design Director Reginald Adams from Harris County Precinct One invite you to:

Park-SmART Precinct One Arts & Culture Forum, an evening of conversation and drinks to celebrate the role of artists and the arts in creating compelling, welcoming, beautiful parks and open space for all. 

Park-SmART Precinct One is part of a larger effort, Park-Smart Precinct One, through which the Precinct is partnering with The Trust for Public Land, Houston Parks Board, and Asakura Robinson on an ambitious plan to build community resilience by increasing equitable access to parks and trails. 

Arts and cultural engagement are essential to creating parks and greenways that are truly accessible and welcoming—parks and greenways that reflect the histories, identities, and aspirations of local residents. We want artists to be active voices in the shaping the plan and in helping us determine how funding, partnerships, and programming can help make art a core asset in Precinct One’s parks. 

As members of our vibrant local arts community, we hope that you will come share your ideas as you enjoy a drink on us!

As part of this event we will be asking:
• What role can artists play in increasing equity and community resilience in Precinct One?
• What kinds of parks-based arts and cultural programming and engagement are already happening locally?
• What are the specific places and contexts, in parks and the public realm, where can artists contribute more?
• What can the Precinct do to create more opportunities for artists to share their ideas and work in parks and open space?

Please spread the word and we hope to see you there!
