I'm excited that my sculpture, "Wings," will be in the RORPOST exhibit, opening Sept. 10 from 7-10 p.m. at Houston's iconic Art Car Museum, 140 Heights Blvd. It will be on exhibit through Oct. 30.
RORPOST is a collaborative exhibit between our own 21-member Art Chatter group of Houston and our Danish counterpart, Bla Dore of Esbjerg. For this exhibit, pairs of artists from each group collaborated on works on paper, and these 84 works will be exhibited in RORPOST.
Each artist also created an individual "response" piece about their experience in the collaboration. My response piece, "Wings," has 21 birds - one for each member of Art Chatter - flanked by a large pair of wings. An earlier version of this sculpture, now in the collection of the terrific artist Diane Fraser, is shown here.
"Wings" represents the numerous times that Art Chatter members - represented by our works on paper - flew back and forth over the Atlantic to Denmark. OK, actually the artworks were shipped by water, but our spirits did soar during this exciting experience.
RORPOST at the Art Car Museum follows an exhibit that opened in Esbjerg this spring. After the Art Car Museum closes, the works on paper will be exhibited at Houston City Hall.
