Oct 15,2017: Exhibition

This fall, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft (HCCC) presents Storyline: The Contemporary Quilt, a survey that highlights the spectrum of contemporary quilt-making techniques and traditions. As living artifacts that change over time, historically, quilts have depicted personal histories and fostered community-building throughout many different cultures. Storyline brings together a diverse selection of quilters, including Kathryn Clark, Carolyn Mazloomi, Aaron McIntosh, and Anna Von Mertens, who utilize various techniques, patterns, and materials to document their stories as well as comment on broader cultural narratives. Each artist uses the language of fiber to capture the unique content of his or her work.
 
“The quilt is one of the most complex objects in the history of American art,” explains HCCC Executive Director, Perry A. Price. “When hung on the wall, it can be viewed like a painting, but this art form is only truly understood when we acknowledge its complex physical construction, its historical precedent as a functional object with a relationship to the body, and its role as an artistic outlet for groups frequently marginalized by mainstream fine arts.”
 
Some of the quilts in Storyline revisit points in history to spark new modes of inquiry and reflection. Starting in 2015, Kathryn Clark (San Francisco, CA) researched the failure of Russia’s short-lived democracy in the ‘80s and ‘90s and discovered a pattern that anticipates Russia’s current political climate. With 2017 marking the 100-year anniversary of the Russian Revolution, Clark has embroidered an infographic timeline of the country’s democracy in her patchwork quilt, The Russia Project: 1987-1996 (2017), hallmarking the significance of this brief period.
 
Identifying iconic paintings from art history in her Portraits series (2009), Anna Von Mertens (Peterborough, NH) revisits the myths that surround these familiar works, taking a closer look at their subjects, through the construct of aura photography and the relationship between emotion and color. Using hand-dye techniques to produce a bold palette, Von Mertens reverse engineers the auras of her subjects, based on their personalities and places in history, to provide a more personable account of each sitter.
 
Other quilts act as diaries, documenting the personal histories of their authors. Activist and leader of the Women of Color Quilters Network, Carolyn Mazloomi (West Chester, OH), draws upon the African-American tradition of story quilts in her work, Wrapped in Love (2016). Producing whole cloth quilts, Mazloomi stencils, hand paints, and machine sews her images to depict the ancestral ties among three generations of women in her family. Alternatively, in his Fragments series (2012), LGBTQ activist Aaron McIntosh (Richmond, VA) machines together a series of zeros with the cover of a gay magazine as a personal reflection on his identity.

Exhibition Dates: September 22, 2017 – January 7, 2018

Scream World Haunted Attraction 2017

Haunted Arrtaction:

The Swamp (formerly the Skull Cave) is considered the most high-tech haunted attraction in Houston – with very elaborate scenes and sophisticated animatronic features.

Jake’s Slaughterhouse is a grim, old-style meat processing plant – complete with slaughtered beef, gutted hogs, skinned animals, rotting carcasses… and a few things no meat market should ever have.

Edge of Darkness features scenes from the dark underside of our modernizing society – including our Hospital Room, the Boiler Room, Death Row, and the Morgue.

Asylum Maze is an outdoor attraction where prowling evil clowns use disorienting strobe lights and meandering corridors to their advantage as they systematically hunt you down.

Zombie Graveyard, nestled in the hollow of a forgotten bog, is an outdoor attraction that is the final home of a host of monstrous creatures that never rest in peace – includes the Vortex Tunnel.

Tickets are $5 More at Door

Date: September 22 – November 4, 2017

Hours:
Sunday – Thursday: 7:30pm – 10pm
Friday and Saturday: 8pm – Midnight

Oct 14,2017: Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for Unforgettable Texans

 

History books burst at the seams with stories about Houston, Travis, Crockett and other icons of Texas history. Yet many of the Lone Star State’s fascinating figures—well known in life but forgotten in death—remain obscure by omission. This scintillating company includes a World War I spy who became a movie star, the first gringo matador, a West Texas tent showman and the husband-and-wife trick-shot act that amazed audiences for forty years. Some characters cut across the common narrative, like the admiral whose advice might have prevented the attack on Pearl Harbor, the one and only Republican congressman in the first half of the twentieth century, the Klansman Texans elected to the U.S. Senate and the businessman who wrote the longest English-language novel in complete secrecy. Popular columnist and author Bartee Haile brings to life some of the most intriguing Texans who ever slipped through the cracks of history.

 

About the Author:

Bartee Haile has written This Week in Texas History for small-town and suburban newspapers throughout the Lone Star State since 1983. Thirty-four years and more than 1,700 columns later, it is the most widely read and longest-running feature of its kind. Unforgettable Texans is Bartee’s fourth book for The History Press. His earlier titles include Texas Depression-Era Desperadoes, Murder Most Texan and Texas Boomtowns: A History of Blood and Oil. A fourth- or fifth-generation Texan (his ancestors were lousy record keepers!), Bartee Haile lives in the Houston area with his wife, Gerri, and not far from his son Brett and granddaughter Lila.

 

Join the author for a signing:

Where:  Barnes Noble

5303 FM 1960 West
