The Future is Now at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft

7 years ago by Meredith Deliso
Authorship. Originality. These are some, but of course not nearly all, of the things that usually come to mind when considering art -- the conceit of the artist and that his or her unique vision gives meaning and value to the work. Now, get ready to turn all that on...

"Soundforge" at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft: Participatory Art?

9 years ago by Meredith Deliso
If participatory art is made that you don't participate in, is it still successful art? That was the question I pondered recently when hesitating to pick up a mallet at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft's exhibition "Soundforge," a steel-music collaboration between metalsmith Gabriel Craig and composer Michael Remson. The...

The Art of Solitude at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft

8 years ago by Meredith Deliso
Janice Jakielski's work somehow manages to feel futuristic and Victorian all at the same time. Her colorful headdresses on display at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft are quite photogenic, embroidered prettily with birds and adorned with paper flowers.

Houston Center for Contemporary Craft: The Space Between

8 years ago by Meredith Deliso
The Houston Center for Contemporary Craft's current show is inspired. "Interstitial Spaces" brings together Julia Barello and Beverly Penn in their first collaborative installation, and it's such a natural pairing that makes for a cohesive, rich, full show -- even with only nine pieces.

Changing Spaces: David Katz's Systemic Expansion at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft

8 years ago by Altamese Osborne
Systemic Expansion, David Katz's on-site, large-scale installation, starts from a definite point of origin: a corner of the Artist's Hall inside the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft.

Lia Cook Weaves Photographic Magic at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft

9 years ago by Meredith Deliso
There is a great illusion at work in Lia Cook's work. Her massive, black and white photographs of human faces -- children gazing calmly at the camera, or extreme close-ups of lips and noses -- are not photographs at all. Rather, they're comprised of intricately woven cotton that, when viewed...

Announcing the 2020 Houston Theater Awards

10 days ago by D. L. Groover
When Hurricane Harvey smashed into Houston in August 2017, its destruction to our theater community was horribly awesome. The devastation was mighty and biblical. Theaters were wrecked, props lost, costumes stank from mildew, schedules hastily shuffled or postponed, jobs lost, budgets thrown out of whack. The world had turned, and...
