New Exhibits Exploring Stereotypes, Technology, Culture And More

January 20, 2010

The Lawndale Art Center is inviting people to be the first to view five new exhibits during an opening reception this Friday.

The opening reception begins Jan. 22 with artist talks at 6 p.m., followed by the reception from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The museum is located at 4912 Main St. in Houston.

Some of the new exhibits include:

DARe to go FURther by UUPA Crust
Visual narratives, paintings and mixed media on paper that addresses the presence of stereotypes, myths and cultural similarities of both African-Americans and native Africans.

Harmonic Spheres by Christopher Cascio & Anne J. Regan
Cascio creates ornately cut Xeroxes of tangled cords and audio equipment arranged over a fluorescent orange background with a thick layer of high gloss varnish on top. The concept of this series of new work centers on the visual interpretations of synthesized sound and the complexities inherent in signals passing through various speakers, processors and recorded media.

Poly-Lawn-Dale by Ned Dodington
For the installation at Lawndale Ned Dodington will fill the Grace R. Cavnar Gallery with roughly 40 nylon-stocking-filled pods of grass seed and potting soil, left to grow from simply black pods into green, verdant, almost hairy, living sculptures. Poly-Lawn-Dale will hope to show that by recontextualizing the natural and the cultural we can begin to understand new ways of being in a complex and multi-natural world.
