Full Press Release:
The Opening Reception for the Visual Arts Alliance 36th Juried Open Exhibition will be held in the West Wing of Silver Street Studios from 6:00 - 8:00 pm. The juror is Christine Jelson West, Cultural Programs Manager at Houston First. The awards presentation is at 7:00 pm.
Charles Criner, artist in residence at The Printing Museum for over a decade, will give a lecture on his inspiration and experience creating his large body of work. His lithographs and paintings reflect his own childhood and the larger history of black people in the United States. He is especially known for his posters celebrating Juneteenth, the anniversary of the emancipation of slaves in Texas.
Three generations of artists, currently based in Houston, speak about gender dynamics, challenges and rewards of creating through their personal experiences: Pat Colville during the 1960's, Terrell James during the 1980's, and Rabéa Ballin in the current decade. The artists will discuss experiences and challenges that shaped their careers, and what motivates them to continue to create and believe in their artistic practice. This conversation will also examine the current state of gender equality in the art world, considering progress we have made, but what steps are needed to move us forward. Moderated by Sarah Beth Wilson, Director of Exhibitions and Curatorial Projects, Art League.
Reception: Friday, April 19, 2019 from 6 - 9 p.m.
Exhibition on view through Saturday, May 4, 2019
