Bringing ‘Art to People’ – First Monthly Show Starts Friday at West U Rec. Center

October 6, 2011

West U resident Pablo Bobbio is bringing “art to people” on Friday at the recreation center.

Bobbio, owner of Tao Art Services, is partnering with the West U Parks and Recreation Department to host five monthly art shows, which will be open to the public.

Bobbio approached the city with his idea for an art showcase after noticing that the walls of the rec. center were bare. His idea was to bring “art to people” instead of “people to art.”

Five shows will be held at the rec. center and each will open with a meet and greet where the featured artist will be available.

The work of Cecilia Monroy, a writer and graphic designer, will be on display from Oct. 7-21.

Monroy will conduct readings of her children’s books on the following dates:

Saturday, Oct. 8 from 11-11:30 a.m.

Thursday, Oct. 13 from 4-4:30 p.m.

Friday, Oct. 14 from 4-4:30 p.m.

Saturday, Oct. 15 from 11-11:30 a.m.

Thursday, Oct. 20 from 4-4:30 p.m.

Paintings by Houston resident Guss Kemp will be on display from Nov. 4-25.

An exhibit called “WAR: Writers 20/20 Photos,” by Pablo Bobbio, will be on display from Dec. 2-23.

Photographs by Frank White, a photographer and professor at Rice University, will be on display from Jan. 6-27. White’s exhibit is called “Ten Things Run Over By A Forklift.”

A group show, featuring two different generations of Houston artists, will be on display from Feb. 3-24. The artists include Rosella Owens, Crystol K. Spillars, Chickie Brown and Pascal Bustamante.
