“First Annual Neopopstreetfunk Art Show”

Web exclusive!

Exhibit co-organizer Kevin Sechelski admits that there really isn’t any funk art in the one-night-only “First Annual Neopopstreet - funk Art Show.” There’s some neo-pop, and certainly some street art, but sadly, no funk. “We have a large group of artists, and we were trying to come up with something that was based on everyone’s style,” Sechelski says. “We had neopop, and we also have kinda a modern urban art look as well. We just threw the funk in there at the end because it’s going to be a funky show.” Sechelski and co-organizer Nicky Davis, who both have work in the exhibit, were looking for under-recognized artists for the show. “Robert Hodge shows a lot, so does Matt Messinger, but the others are really kinda no-name artists. We wanted artists who could come together and mix ideas, to have a different kind of show that’s not a gallery show. I wouldn’t say that we’re the only ones doing this, but I do think that right now we’re going through an urban movement that’s not really like many other artists in Houston. With the show, we just wanted to give Houston a little bit of maybe what’s missing.” 7 to 10 p.m. Nance Street Gallery, 1310 Nance Street. For information, call 832-545-5503. Free.
Sat., April 4, 7 p.m., 2009
