Life: The Ma between life and death

Join Artist dianne k. webb for the opening exhibition of her latest work during Artcrawl 2017

Ma is the Japanese concept of space, interval, the space between. Life is between. Birth and death. Between. What do we do with that space? How do we consider that space in the chaos and busy-ness of our lives, if the focus remains on the what we are doing rather than the space between, the interval. Join me for my visualizations of ma. 

Opens: at the ArtCRawl

Call of Dudy – Bohemian Bagpipes Across Borders

Bagpipes are generally associated with the Celtic Fringe of Europe, but one of the richest and ethnically diverse bagpipe traditions can be found in Central Europe. In the Czech Lands and in Neighboring Bavaria this traditions once became marginalized and almost disregarded. Yet this historical musical form has survived and even managed to renew itself, to develop further on a regional scale – crossing national and linguistic borders. Call of Dudy captures the people and places which are keeping this centuries – old tradition alive today for future generations.

 Please also enjoy our free popcorn & snacks!

Free Student Workshop & Docent Tour about "Vedem - The Secret Magazine of the Terezin Ghetto

Vedem, WWII, Holocaust, Workshop, Students, Creative Activism, Creativity, Docent Tour

Come visit the the Vedem Exhibit at the Czech Center Museum.

On view: September 12th, 2017  to November 30th, 2017

 

Vedem’s magazine’s lessons of artistic activism will inspire today’s teens! It’s a chance to use creative means to explore their identity while driving change in their own communities.

Vedem Underground : The Secret Boys Magazine deconstructs and reinterprets the literary work of a secret society of Jewish boys, who created the longest-running underground magazine in a Nazi camp. Using a combination of pop-art graphics, drawings and paintings, and the prose and poetry of teenage prisoners in the Terezin Ghetto, the exhibit breaks down the 83 weekly issues totaling the 800 pages of Vedem (“In The Lead” in Czech”), then reconstructs them in the form of a contemporary magazine.

Through the exhibit, Vedem, which was produced from 1942-44, is recreated as the original ‘zine (hand made magazine), complete with “Masthead,” “Mission,” “Newsroom,” “Printing Press” and “Circulation” sections as well as panels dedicated to subject matter such as “Columns,” “Features,” “Humor” and “News and Editorial” panels.

Vedem Underground enlarges the intimate scale of the original publication while mixing and matching works of art with poetry and prose to create a collage in which Vedem is reinterpreted as a work of artistic activism that remains as relevant today as it did more than 70 years ago.

The Vedem Underground multimedia project examines the historic, cultural and artistic legacy of Vedem, a teen-authored magazine that was the only underground publication to be regularly produced by young Nazi concentration camp prisoners.

Vedem Underground teaches an invaluable lesson that transcends religion, age and eras to secondary-school and college students. Students are able to see how young activists inside the Terezin ghetto fearlessly fought anti-Semitism using their creative expression.

 FREE WORKSHOPS & CLASSES AVAILABLE!

Students participate in journalism workshop that concludes with student creations of hand-made magazines (‘zines).

The workshop is designed to teach middle- through college students both the historic context of Vedem and the art of creating a ‘zine, or hand- made magazine, as a symbol of creative expression, and a way to explore one’s identity through socially-engaged creativity.

They will conclude the course showcasing their work for the community with a ‘zine pop-up exhibit, where they will share ideas and trade their ‘zines.

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.

Solo show exhibit featuring fine art by Reese Lynch

This show explores the juxtaposition of abstract and figurative art. Reese Lynch converges two distinctive styles; cropped realistic forms and doodling. In doing this he hopes to create a viewing experience that is both cohesive and dynamic. The message of this work is open for interpretation.

Reese Lynch grew up in the one-horse town of Goodrich, TX. He became interested in drawing in middle school and from there his passion for art grew. He received his BFA in studio drawing/painting from SFASU and it was there he met his wife Heidi. They now reside in Kingwood, TX with their three children and dog.

The artist won 2nd place award at JoMar Visions Art Excellence 2016 with his piece “Potential”. Reese’s work has shown around Houston, TX, as well as Richmond, VA and Amsterdam.
