Four Houston artists — Rabéa Ballin, Delita Martin, Ann Johnson and Lovie Olivia — each with a distinctive style and voice, contribute to “SUGA,”
a group exhibit of prints. This is the fifth show for the group. (There was “ROUX” in 2011, “STIR” and “MOJO” in 2012, and “bās” in 2013.) The women most often work in other mediums, but find that switching to prints requires not only a change in technique but in thinking process as well. Working with -dehydrated vegetables, plaster, feathers, pillows, handmade paper and other non-traditional materials, the group explores experimental printmaking. “SUGA,” presented by BLUEorange and PrintMatters, is the final show in a months-long series of exhibits by PrintHouston. Think of it as visual dessert.
