TBH Center proudly celebrates its Fall Art Season with artworks by over seventy artists in an ambitious exhibit of drawings, and prints reflecting on the theme of death. Just in time for the Day of the Dead observances held across Houston, TBH offers its own unique twist of honoring the dead. A special musical performance by Nick Gaitan and His Calaveras will take place during the artist’s reception November 3rd at 8pm.
The title of the exhibition, “DRAWN OUT DEATH,” is a play on words. Using the theme of death as the point of departure, the curators came to a place of agreement. “I wanted to start from the opposite side of seeing life” says curator Rolando Reyna.
“Using death as a starting point one could discover new ways of looking at the evidence of a life lived”- adds co-curator Angel Quesada. The exhibition had to be shrunk from the original concept. “Initially we wanted to exhibit one thousand drawings however, once we realized that this would be extremely challenging due to space we shot for a smaller exhibition with many quality artists,” muses Quesada “there’s always next year!”
The invitational exhibition has a strong Texas representation (Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Del Rio, Corpus Christi, Kingsville, Dallas, Brownsville) and some artists from New York & Mexico. The total number comes to over seventy artists participating in this large exhibition of artworks which use drawing in their process. Some artists are using pen and ink, others pastel, some use needle and thread and some employ glass. Works are priced to sell $50 to $500 and, as a collection, is a well balanced display of emerging and established artists who use drawing regularly in their art process.
The exhibition, “Drawn Out Death” employs exclusively the artistic mode of drawing and is part of TBH’s celebration of Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) during the 2011-12 TBH Visual Arts Season Program Calendar. Exhibition runs November 3 – November 27, 2011.
