Facing Pages…Bodies of Water
“Facing Pages…Bodies of Water,” opens September 5th at the Community Artists’ Collective, with the art of Bobbie Wallace Wright, whose work often intersects and connects the literary, visual and performing arts disciplines.
The opening reception will be held Thursday, September 5th from 6pm to 8pm.
With this exhibition Wright takes a cursory look at the effect of the environment upon memory. By accepting a relative compositional premise that each of two natural bodies is composed of approximately two-thirds water, her canvases creatively abstract this interconnectedness of human beings and gently rolling rivers.
In Houston Wright has exhibited paintings, photographs and sculptural pieces at the Museum of Fine Arts, Contemporary Arts Museum, Project Row Houses and the O’Kane Gallery at UH Downtown, as well as at the Galveston Arts Center and the August Savage Gallery at the University of Massachusetts.
In addition, she has performed literary monologues in collaboration with other artists in solo and group exhibitions. She received a Rockefeller/NEA grant through the Andy Warhol Foundation to create the visual and literary art project, “Words on Walls: A Writer’s Gallery.
The exhibit will continue through October 12th. The Collective is open Thursdays through Saturdays from 12 noon until 5pm and by appointment.
