Artist talk with Luisa Duarte and Anna Tahinci
Saturday, February 11, 2017 | 2:00 PM | Free

Join exhibiting artist Luisa Duarte for a conversation with Dr. Anna Tahinci, Professor and Area Coordinator of the Art History Department of the Glassell School of Art, on Duarte’s current exhibition, Personal Scapes: Recent Prints. Duarte and Tahinci will discuss Duarte’s new body of work and what she describes as “multiple belongings” (being Venezuelan by birth, Latin American by culture, and a Houstonian by choice), along with her manipulation of imagery, playful personification of geometry, and the impact of digital processes on her work.






Main Gallery
Jonathan Leach – Guts and Bone

Jonathan Leach focuses on finding balance between internal and external influences in his exhibitionGuts and Bone. Inspired by city and suburban landscapes, Leach’s paintings and sculptures explore how architecture, advertising, and icons interact with one another, using line and color to create movement and tension. His most recent works reflect on his personal navigation of thought and incorporate light and shadow to create depth and a sense of space.

Leach lives and works in Houston, TX. He earned his BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago and has had exhibits throughout the United States, including solo exhibitions at Gallery Sonja Roesch, the Galveston Arts Center and galleryHOMELAND. His work is also in the collections of NRG Texas, Hess Co., the Bank of Montreal, Hobby Airport of Houston and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. He is represented by Gallery Sonja Roesch.
