''In Residence: Work by 2012 Resident Artists''

Each year, the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft selects a small number of artists to participate in its residency program. Houston artist and high school teacher Tarina Frank was among this year's participants. Work she created during her residency is part of the group exhibit ''In Residence: Work by 2012 Resident Artists.'' Frank morphs metals and plastics into jewelry. Drawing on inspiration from the instant-gratification culture created by the proliferation of social media, her pieces display the best in social media communication quips, e.g., ''In a Relationship'' or ''It's Complicated.'' Her Paper Fan Rings series brings together elements of silver, nickel, brass, copper and paper (wood) rings. Each ring starts out as a piece of paper folded into the shape of a miniature Chinese lantern. Curved nickel, brass or copper is then affixed to each side of the little lanterns. One flick of the finger sets the lanterns spinning, turning them into baubles ''full of kinetic potential.''
