"Doesn't everyone love Houston?" ~ Sherry Tseng
Hill

Having lived in Houston for most of her life, Sherry Tseng
Hill has observed the quiet transformation of the city from a scruffy,
sprawling, swamp of a place to a powerhouse of intellect, culture, and
diversity. For this show, she weaves her observations, experiences, and stories
of the city's past, present, and future presenting them in a collection of wide
ranging works that is reflective of this diversity.

In contrast to the fluidity of time in  Sherry Tseng Hill's work, Jim Adams’ Sentinels
seem timeless and permanent. Fashioned from square and rectangular pieces of
steel tube sections, the 11 monolithic pieces articulate a strong and
omniscient quality. Each seems solitary and distant, yet all are linked
together and connected to one another. They silently stand watch over the
transformations of time and our city.

 

Sherry Tseng Hill was born in Taiwan and lived there until
she was a young teenager. She first picked up a paint brush when she was 7
years old, and since then has explored art in a variety of media ranging from
calligraphy and oil pastels at an early age to pencils, soft pastels, and oils
through college continuing into the early years of her career. She is now
experimenting with acrylics and mixed media.

Ms. Hill attended Rice University, earning a Bachelor of Arts
in Art History and Architecture in 1980 and a Bachelor of Architecture in 1982.
In addition to her studies in architecture and art history, she also has taken numerous
art studio classes. Recently, she studied under a number of award winning
watercolor artists through the Watercolor Art Society of Houston’s workshops
and classes.

Jim Adams’ work is largely created from scrapped industry
and infrastructure items. This metal was something before it became artwork and
there is no attempt to deny that. Adams’ sculptures are minimalist and
monochromatic having a raw, earthy character that ranges from whimsical spoofs
to dramatic abstracts.   

The body of work created for this exhibition is a series of
pieces known as Sentinels. Their presence is solitary and taciturn; their
purpose is never ending vigilance. The sculptures need to be with their
brothers but never in close proximity

In 2007, after 24 years in the Information Technologies
field, Adams took up artistry in iron and steel developing his unique and
recognizable style. Prior to his years in IT, he worked in the welding industry
where he developed the skill and knowledge required for working with metals.
Most of his work evolves from the physical characteristics of whatever
wonderful piece of steel has been rescued from one dumpster or another. “My
approach is to find and create beauty, or thought provoking aspects, from the
often unique characteristics of the items found.”

 Adams’ sculptures are
exhibited in multiple galleries in North America and has been featured in a
number of public exhibitions. His artwork resides in collections across the
United States and internationally. Jim Adams has been represented by Archway
Gallery since 2011.

Colors of Humanity: Solo Show

The array of personalities, the broad range of characters, the love, the hate, the compassion. The countless emotions the way the colors blend, merge or don't.. These are the colors of humanity.

Colors of Humanity: Solo Show

"The array of personalities, the broad range of characters, the love,
the hate, the compassion. The countless emotions the way the
colors blend, merge or don't.. These are the colors of humanity."

We asked Sayra a few questions!


What is the meaning of your paintings to you?
Freedom and healing is what my paintings mean to me. I aim to make
people happy and I do. I see smiles when people approach my work..
Smiles and astonishment. I love it.

Without giving your
process of way what makes you unique drip pour unique? How long does
each painting take you? How long does it take to dry?

My drip
technique is unique because my colors rarely if ever blend. They stay
separate. A painting usually takes from 3-7 days to fully dry.

What's your favorite part about being an artist?
My favorite part about being an artist is being able to share my vibes
with people through my work. To be my complete and total self and being
able to relate to others because of my work.

Why should someone come to see your solo show?
I would say people should come to my solo show to build and be inspired.

Randall Mosman "I'm Still Here" Opening at Redbud Gallery

Contact Name:
Gus Kopriva
Contact Phone:
713-862-2532

Redbud Gallery is proud to announce the solo exhibition and introduction of one of our most talented artists, Randall Mosman.

Born in New Orleans and educated both in Texas and internationally through extensive travels, Mosman has developed an original recognizable artistic style. You will be delighted to view impressive large mixed media, small sculpture and paintings.

His large works are somewhat dark, painted with thick layers of oil and found objects. The house like structures are reminiscent of those we see as we travel the highways and backroads of the American South. They appear surrealistic, ramshackle, as one would observe while on a very fine mind altering high. The small metallic sculptures are miniatures of the large home pieces while retaining the sense of the larger works.  Smaller paintings depict voyeur like scenes taken from a tour of our favorite lake houses or cabins nestled in the dark woods at night.

Our tunnel like eyes are directed to interesting lighted windows full of imagined potential surprises. Mosman’s figurative elements are somewhat scattered throughout his art. Observation of the human element leads the viewer to draw many different conclusions or observations of what is actually happening. Mosman’s art teases us in many ways which is his intent.

Artist Statement:
“From the desert, over the mountains, through the forest, and into the delta, across the sea, into the jungle, and back again:  The familiarity of shelter along the way is what interest me.  The space that we occupy within a place.  The cabin, the cottage, the bungalow, the shack, the house on stilts, the house on the hill.  All serve their purpose, only in a different place in a different space.”

The exhibit will be on display from February 3 through February 26, 2018.
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 3 from 6pm to 9pm.
