Exhibition Opening - Monique Lacey: Puffery & Mel DeWees: Stacks

Main Gallery

Monique Lacey: Puffery


Monique Lacey is a New Zealand based Artist whose work addresses the notion that if a painting is a bounded volume, how can the skin or surface of that painting reveal or disguise its structure and what it contains.


The work manifests itself in the production of hollow, rectilinear-cuboid-forms, which present themselves as support and surface. The relationship between the front-facing plane and the sides of the work can challenge the traditional conventions of painting when the proportional relationships of scale are reconfigured.


Commercial packaging materials purchased at local hardware stores offer structural propositions of both volume and surface. The materials are assembled and covered with plaster and other materials, which act as both binding agent and new surface to conceal and/or reveal the structure underneath. While there is an adherence of truth to materials, the materials are used to construct a level of artifice in the work. 


The initial building up of each form is countered by a crushing act that results in the form being either destroyed or substantially reconfigured. The act of crushing is a performative act using the body’s weight, and is one that can be playful, aggressive or cathartic. 


The work finds is informed by Minimalism, the movement that ultimately became associated with the power of the boardrooms. Where this language of form and male-centered narratives were once central and perhaps pertinent, today this language seems outdated, hollow and tiresome. Thus the work functions as a commentary on the established legacies of power.



Artist:

Monique Lacey (b. 1960, Netherlands) has exhibited her work at The Vivian Gallery, Matakana, NZ; Waikato Museum, Hamilton, NZ; Malcolm Smith Gallery, Auckland, NZ; Rm Gallery, Auckland, NZ; Sanderson Gallery, Auckland, NZ, West End Art Space, Melbourne, Australia; Yarra Sculpture Gallery, Melbourne, Australia, Gray Contemporary, Houston, TX. She currently lives in Auckland, New Zealand. She received her MFA (First Class Hons) from Whitecliffe School of Art & Design in Auckland, New Zealand. She has participated in an artist residency in Bangkok.



Second Gallery

Mel DeWees: Stacks


The work in the exhibition is exploring the reductive manifestation of formal issues such as texture, form, shape and composition as well as the questions associated with object painting. The coloration of these objects are produced by the use of gold dry pigment and resin, while structurally they are made of plywood. My interest lies more in the study of materiality than painting.


Artist:

Mel DeWees (b. 1976, Bryan, TX) is a Houston based artist. Mel DeWees studied at Cooper Union and University of Houston. His reductive resin based works investigates the the limits of reductive materiality. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and can be found in many corporate and private collections such as Bank of America, Schlumberger, Halliburton, Houston Community College. His work has been included in solo and selected group exhibitions at Paul Williams Gallery, Aberson Exhibits, Tiger Strikes Asteriod, Hooks Epstein, Ann Connelly Gallery, D.B Mauldin, University of Houston Clearlake, Elizabeth Stone Harper Gallery, Flatland Gallery.

Conversations @ The Center: Pete Gershon and Michael Tracy


Galveston Arts Center (GAC) presents its annual speaker series, Conversations @ The Center, featuring artists and arts professionals who speak about and show images of their work, practices, professions, or discuss timely issues in contemporary visual art. The 2019 series highlights four Texas-based authors who have published books on topics in contemporary art joined in conversation with individuals that give special insight into local and regional connections to their work.

Pete Gershon, Author
Michael Tracy, Artist

Pete Gershon will speak about his book, Collision: The Contemporary Art Scene in Houston, 1972–1985, in conversation with artist Michael Tracy who lived and worked in Galveston during the 1970s. Tracy’s performance, Sacrifice I, 9.13.74 (The Sugar), which took place in the Imperial Sugar Warehouse in 1974 is documented in the book.


Pete Gershon is the program coordinator for the Core Residency Program at the Glassell School of Art of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the author of Painting the Town Orange: Houston’s Visionary Art Environments. He resides in Houston.

About the book:
Collision: The Contemporary Art Scene in Houston, 1972–1985
Texas A&M University Press, 2018

Drawing upon primary archival materials, contemporary newspaper and magazine accounts, and over sixty interviews with significant figures, Gershon presents a narrative that preserves and interweaves the stories and insights of those who transformed the Houston art scene into the vibrant community that it is today.

Michael Tracy first achieved international recognition in the 1980s, exhibiting in the 1982 Venice Biennale and in London’s Tate Gallery’s New Art exhibition in 1983. He has had solo exhibitions at P.S. 1 (New York), the Menil Collection (Houston), the Mattress Factory (Pittsburgh) and the Centro Cultural de Arte Contemporáneo (Mexico City). His work is found in public collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Art, Houston, the High Museum (Atlanta) and the Menil Collection.

Michael Tracy’s life and career are bound up with the state of Texas. After receiving his MFA from the University of Texas, Tracy moved to Galveston in the early 1970s. In 1978 he settled in San Ygnacio, a small historic border town on the Rio Grande, where he has resided ever since. He founded The River Pierce Foundation, which works to identify, conserve, and advocate for the cultural heritage of San Ygnacio and the borderlands in the Lower Rio Grande Valley. The foundation’s work includes artistic, educational, and oral history programs; environmental activism; and a major program of restoration for the historic buildings of San Ygnacio.

Jay Wehnert is the Director of Intuitive Eye, a Houston arts organization he founded in 2011. An independent curator, writer, collector, educator, and collaborator in a wide range of venues, he has curated shows for galleries and institutions in Texas, written for exhibition catalogues and other publications as well as his own website, presented at conferences, and worked directly with artists to present their art in a variety of settings.

About the book:
Outsider Art in Texas : Lone Stars
Texas A&M University Press, 2018

In Outsider Art in Texas: Lone Stars, author Jay Wehnert takes readers on a visually stunning excursion through the lives and work of eleven outsider artists from Texas, a state particularly rich in outsider artists of national and international renown.

Recie Kraemer is an islander by choice, having lived in Galveston for over twenty years. In the early 2000s Kraemer purchased an unassuming house off 19th Street in Galveston with some historic merit in hopes of saving it. The home was the former residence of Czech immigrant Karl Virag who transformed the entire interior into a visionary folk art environment. The house has been featured in tours by the Orange Show Center for Visionary Art and in a recent article in Coast Monthly Magazine.

Chris Bakay | The Tangibility of Memory


Chris Bakay’s exhibition The Tangibility of Memory includes cast resin t-shirts and everyday objects that evoke nostalgic memories of youth and skate culture. Through a labor-intensive casting process, Bakay juxtaposes the materials of high and low culture. While his Retired Jersey t-shirts have specific meaning for the artist, the personal memories associated with many of these seemingly ordinary objects shifts for individual viewers. The humble t-shirt, ever-present in tourist towns, serve as symbol of modern life with their various logos or emblems reflecting personal or lived experiences with shifting meanings.

Chris Bakay is a multidisciplinary visual artist living and working in Houston, TX. Born in 1977, in Atlanta, GA, he studied Design at The Creative Circus. His work has been featured in publications including High SnobietyDesign TaxiArtnet NewsUntitled MagazineNew York ObserverStylusLuxury StandardTech Cocktail and a segment on Fox News with Andrea Tantaros. Bakay’s work has been included in group exhibitions in Houston, Atlanta, and most recently in the exhibition Emerging To Established – A Group Show at Krause Gallery, New York, NY.

Jeffrey Dell | Maquette Moon


Jeffrey Dell’s exhibition, Maquette Moon, features a new series of screenprints that continue his abiding interest in space, color, pattern, and perception. Dell explores the human tendency to read into images for symbols, depth, and promises of pleasure. Mixing the languages of visual graphics and trompe l’oeil, Dell’s images create larger questions about the viewer’s imagination, blurring distinctions between actually seeing and projecting that which we want to see.

As an artist known for painterly/printerly abstraction, Dell’s flaps and portals can resemble moons, spaceships, aliens, the unknown, and various objects of longing. All of the titles for individual works are stolen from titles of science-fiction novels published in the 1970’s – novels for which famed illustrator Chris Foss did the cover art. Dell acknowledges the influence of Foss from hours spent staring at his images, both projecting himself into those futuristic worlds and consuming the promised pleasures depicted. Maquette Moon echoes the wistful narrators of these novels.

Jeffrey Dell has headed the Printmaking department at Texas State University for 18 years and currently lives in San Marcos, TX. Recent exhibitions include the International Print Center of New York; The Print Center of Philadelphia; Rochester Contemporary Art Center; Art Palace Gallery, Houston; and Galleri Urbane, Dallas. Dell was commissioned by The LINE Hotel to produce two large unique editions for their newest location in Austin, TX, in 2018. Dell received his MFA from the University of New Mexico at Albuquerque.

Brad Tucker | Standard Tan


Brad Tucker’s exhibition, Standard Tan, includes a collection of wood, fabric, and painted sculptural objects that explore color, texture, and language. Often mimicking tools and utilitarian objects, Tucker’s work plays with the loose ends of craftsmanship at the border between painting and sculpture. Tucker’s experience as an artist, skateboarder, musician, and teacher reveals itself in his work through the use of abstracted shapes, text, and sound elements encountered in his daily life.

Brad Tucker (born 1965, West Covina, CA) earned a BFA from the University of North Texas, Denton (1991) and an MFA from the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts, Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, NY (2009). Tucker has exhibited and performed internationally for the past two decades, including solo exhibitions at Inman Gallery, Houston, TX (2015, 2012, and 2009); Re Gallery, Dallas, Texas (2015); Old Jail Art Center, Albany TX (2013); and Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston, TX (2011). From 1999-2000 Tucker was an artist resident in the Core Program, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. His work is included in the public collections of the Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Menil Collection, Houston; the New Museum, New York, NY; and the Plains Museum, Fargo, ND. Tucker lives and works in Austin, TX. He is represented by Inman Gallery.

Quintron | DRUM BUDDY (Miss Pussycat Model


Playing on the unique acoustics of the concrete and steel lined second-floor vault of GAC’s 1878 First National Bank Building, New Orleans-based artist and musician Quintron, presents one of his most notable inventions, the Drum Buddy. The Drum Buddy is a light activated, analog synthesizer which creates murky, low-fidelity, rhythmic patterns triggered by the rotation of recycled #10 pizza sauce cans. Using the unique characteristics of optical sensors, the instrument produces drum-like tones, chirps, and buzzes in four distinct voices: kick, snare, bass, and “space”. Quintron is credited with fostering an analog synth revival in the late 1990s / early 2000s with the invention and continual experimentation with the Drum Buddy. The piece on display at GAC is a one-of-a-kind version of the instrument created for Miss Pussycat in 2009. Visitors are invited to enter the vault to experience the unique soundscape produced by this innovative instrument.

Quintron is a New Orleans-based inventor, organist, and musical octopus behind the eponymous band, “Quintron and Miss Pussycat”.  He has been making genre-defying noise, soundscape, and house rocking dance music in New Orleans for over 20 years. The majority of his fifteen full-length albums, many created with artist/puppeteer Panacea Theriac (also known Miss Pussycat), have the psychedelic soul of New Orleans party jams as filtered through tough distorted organs and self-made electronic instruments. Quintron is a celebrated nightclub organist and inventor, who has patented a number of his own inventions, including the Drum Buddy. Notable performers who own and play the Drum Buddy include Nels Cline of Wilco, Laurie Anderson, Fred Armisen, and DJ Mr. Dibbs. In addition to his own recordings, Quintron has played on a number of other records, most notably The Oblivions 9 Songs and Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys Grand Isle, which earned a Grammy nomination in 2012 and included the Quintron penned song Chatterbox. In addition to performances throughout the world, Quintron’s instruments and inventions have been included in exhibitions at the New Orleans Museum of Art, Propsect 4 at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCA), Los Angeles, and a 2014 residency at the Rauschenberg Residency in Captiva, FL.

Miss Pussycat | The Puppet Worlds of Miss Pussycat


The Puppet Worlds of Miss Pussycat features an installation of puppets and their worlds by New-Orleans based artist, musician, and puppeteer, Panacea Theriac (also known as Miss Pussycat). The exhibition includes puppets and puppet theaters, along with videos, photographs and ceramic sculptures of her puppets. The Puppet Worlds of Miss Pussycat highlights characters and worlds from her last five puppet shows: The Western Village Shopping VillageClothes Made by Small Furry AnimalsFrenchy and JettThe Happy Castle of Goblinburg, and The Cookie Carnival Baking Contest. In her work, Miss Pussycat creates paracosmic fantasies that often relate to her own experience as an artist and musician. She’s in a band and her puppets have a band that releases records, while others are artists and museum workers in a fictitious museum. Each character assumes a life of their own in an ever-evolving series of stories.

Panacea Theriac‘s most widely known public role is as Miss Pussycat, performing puppet shows, singing, and playing maracas in the band “Quintron and Miss Pussycat”. Based in New Orleans, Quintron and Miss Pussycat present live organ-driven party music and puppet shows at parties all over the world.

Born in Antlers, Oklahoma, Theriac began her career in art and puppetry as a child in the Southern Baptist Church of Antlers as part of the Christian Puppet Youth Ministry. She later moved to New Orleans and started a secret nightclub called Pussycat Caverns, which hosted bands and all types of performance in a unique and lively atmosphere. Since 1997 she has run a similar secret night club, The Spellcaster Lodge, with the artist Quintron. Both of these enterprises have brought bands and other inspired people together to put on fun shows for the New Orleans 9th Ward neighborhood. For over 20 years, she has presented live puppet shows in rock clubs, libraries, and secret clubhouses all around the world. Theriac has also made a number of puppet movies and videos, including Trixie and the TreetunksNorth Pole Nutrias, and Electric Swamp.

Exhibitions and installations are an important part of Theriac’s work. These shows display puppets and their worlds in galleries and museums and have included exhibits at The New Orleans Museum of Art and an installation at the Center for Contemporary Art in New Orleans. In 2017, she was a featured artist for Prospect 4, New Orleans’ citywide contemporary art triennial, with an exhibition at The Ogden Museum of Southern Art. In 2014, she and Quintron were each awarded a Rauschenberg Residency.

Duvel Art Glass Series - Miami

Up next, our special collaboration with Duvel USA takes us to the vibrant and
lively Capital of Latin America on this thrilling edition of ShowUsYourType.

The city’s breathtaking tapestry of ethnic and creative diversity
is an example of the type of cultural heritage Duvel actively supports and
nurtures. It is therefore fitting that this edition of ShowUsYourType pays
homage to Duvel’s signature tulip-shaped beer glass, which was the first of its

drinkers to fully appreciate the beer’s exquisite flavour and aroma—one of the
thoughtful details designed to enhance the overall Duvel experience.

our cover artist, a Miami based talented Visual designer, specializing in Web
Design, Brand Identity and Illustration.Very excited to share this very cool
artwork, big thank you!

It's optional to include the D from Duvel's logo or create or own variation of
the D. If you choose to incorporate this in your design the logo can be downloaded here. And note that this time because
we are partnering with Duvel we have to make sure you are 21+ years old ;).

 

THE PRIZE
