Exhibited work is on view through March 23. The opening event on January 12th immediately follows the monthly Second Saturday Open Studios event at The Silos at Sawyer Yards. Houston-area writers were chosen by submission last summer, with help from exhibition partner Writespace Houston of Silver St. Studios in Sawyer Yards. Every piece in Color:Story 2019 is collaborative work in Leslie's and Marlo's separate or combined artistic styles. Each is the visual representation of one local writer or poet's work. Artists: Leslie Gaworecki free-forms emotion, light, and color with layer upon layer of vibrant acrylic paint with words and shapes scraped or painted into the colors, hidden and revealed among the layers. Marlo Saucedo fits essays into precise and intricately planned pieces. Research and stories are written into form in India ink atop Yuzen paper on a mix of acrylic and high-end latex paint. Both artists create work designed to inspire thought and feeling, colorful stories from the wall.
