Take a Walk in the Garden at Rice Gallery

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The current exhibit at Rice Gallery is “Garden Object,” an installation by Rosario Hurtado and Roberto Feo, who run a design studio called El Ultimo Grito. The garden they’ve created at Rice is rather otherworldly, as gardens go. Here’s a link to the “making of” video, definitely worth 2 minutes of your day. For more information, including the artistic statement, visit the Rice Gallery site.

Leonardo Drew: “Existed” at the Blaffer Gallery

Today I got to see the Leonardo Drew exhibit at the Blaffer Gallery on the UH campus. The exhibit combines grids (I love grids), wild texture, found objects, and obsessive detail–all painted over with a coat of rust. Yes, rust. Leonardo Drew is definitely an artist to watch out for.  [Photos are borrowed from the artist's website.]
