The Wood of Bastrop #2
2014, Mixed Media
On view through Sunday, November 23rd.
Houston-based artist Lisa Qualls will talk about the seemingly different series that she has been working on about culture and identity. Qualls's work investigates the way cultures intersect and interact. Through painting, drawing, collage and photography, she explores these ideas in both macro and microcosms. Whether focusing on peoples and history in the southern United States or the migration of Africans to Europe, the reoccurring theme is the evolution of culture and society.
Next date: Friday, November 21st
Every first and third Friday, drop in at GAC between 4-6 PM for a free, casual open-studio session. Each week, an artist volunteer will set up tables and materials and introduce the Illustration Friday topic of the week (a one-word prompt.) You then pick up pencil or brush and respond to the prompt however you want to. As you work, you'll enjoy the company and inspiration of your fellow doodlers, as well as music, drinks and snacks.
Open to all. More info
