Amy C. Evans and J. Marie Valdez collaborate in an exhibit called “Sacred Spaces” in commemoration of Hurricane Harvey’s one year anniversary. Evans documents and paints the spirit of vernacular architecture that dots the Houston landscape exploring buildings of vibrant color, shape and pattern. For the artist, these are sacred places hiding in a rapidly-changing big city. J. Marie Valdez reveals the everyday surrounding often overlooked with our day-to-day commute. Bridges and streets reflect light from lamps and after a rain; changes in light from dusk to dawn. The aftermath of Ike and the recent Harvey storm inspired Valdez to examine the complex interrelationships between beauty and hope along with destruction and desolation. [Organizer's description]
