Capsule Art Reviews: "35 Years: Anniversary Exhibition," "Harvey Bott: Paradigms in Paint and Wire," "Richard Misrach: After Katrina,"

10 years ago by Kelly Klaasmeyer
"35 Years: Anniversary Exhibition" Moody Gallery is 35! Packed with gallery artists, the anniversary show is like a big, riotous family reunion where all the crazy cousins showed up and brought art instead of a covered dish. Among the offerings, Michael Bise has a naked portrait of himself hooked up...

"In Between Mass and Void"

18 years ago by Kelly Klaasmeyer
This show could be subtitled "Six Men Make Big Heavy Objects," except many of the sculptures aren't what they seem. Butch Jack's wall disks, which appear to be formed of molten metal, are in fact foam covered with metallic-looking graphite. Ditto Harvey Bott's cubes and slabs of "steel," which are...

Check out our sister paper in Miami's eye-popping photos of Art Basel. Art Basel Miami this year was "more buzzing than it's ever been," according to conceptual artist Molly Gochman, and Houston artists were in the middle of it.

Best Art Gallery

Sicardi Gallery María Inés Sicardi started her gallery ten years ago, focusing on Latin American artists. The always carefully curated space has a history of introducing intriguing contemporary work and thoughtfully presenting lesser-known works by 20th-century masters (such as the elegantly awkward late sculptures of the Venezuelan artist Gego).

Secret Taping

17 years ago by Kelly Klaasmeyer
The drawings now hanging on the wall at Sicardi Gallery were almost tossed out. Harvey Bott was cleaning out his studio and had a barrel of old things he wanted to get rid of (when you've been making art for five decades, you accumulate a lot of stuff). But David...

In Plain Sight

8 years ago by Kelly Klaasmeyer
The 20th century saw a lot of hand-wringing about the "death of painting." Painting, however, didn't get the memo. It remains alive and well. The act of applying pigment to a surface — smearing, brushing, pouring, rolling, spraying or scrubbing it — is tactile, satisfying and pretty much eternal if...

If Nothing Else Matters

10 years ago by Kelly Klaasmeyer
You may have noticed the big-ass "For Sale" sign in front of 4411 Montrose. Former Enron executive Jeff Shankman built the gallery complex six years ago and has since declared bankruptcy. The property is being liquidated, but 4411's gallery tenants appear unfazed. In fact, as they wait for the building...

Big Hit

9 years ago by Kelly Klaasmeyer
It's July, which means it's time for Lawndale Art Center's Big Show — the annual juried-from-actual-work extravaganza of Houston art. Here's the drill: Lure in a savvy, intrepid and good-natured curator. Stick them at a desk for two days as you parade hundreds of works of art past them innumerable...

DoV-ine Inspiration

23 years ago by Shaila Dewan
It's not easy to take Harvey Bott seriously. The 63-year-old with the Elmer Fudd hairdo is one of those kooky guys appreciated in the local art scene more for his DIY sensibility and volunteer work than for anything he's actually created. He rarely exhibits in his hometown. His last local...
