WHEN:  Saturday 6:00pm

COST:  Admission is free

DETAILS:  A reflection of the “interior world of intensely codependent relationships,” Shawne Major’s “Folie à Deux” invites viewers to engage in a shared psychosis composed of linear-shaped objects in tandem with organic line drawings to create mixed-media collages. By creating multiple overlapping and explosive layers with materials such as charger cables, ropes, holiday lights among others, Major mirrors the contradictory emotions of the human condition, allowing viewers to independently confront their own connotations of specific materials within the greater context of the work. By engaging these materials, Major interrogates how her compositions with the “messy and detritus” can function as metaphors for one’s own collective memory, often comprised of debris and ephemera itself. Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until March 29.

Gray Contemporary presents Tommy Gregory and Courtney Cone opening reception

WHEN:  Saturday 6:00pm

WHERE: Gray Contemporary, 3508 Lake St, Houston, TX 77098, Get Directions >

COST:  Admission is free

DETAILS: Gregory’s recent body of work, “Everything Lasts Forever,” is a series of cast bronze sculptures; the content is pertaining to altering the destiny of ephemeral or discarded objects while questioning permanence using an archival sculpture method. The work has subtle and not so subtle political references, in addition to commentary on the human experience. Cone’s “Processed” explores the complications of occupying a female “body” in the prison system with a focus on the visceral, often dehumanizing ramifications. As an incarcerated woman, I became an object – a collection of meat, fleshy folds and hiding holes – routinely checked and inspected. The works in this show embody this experience; bloated, swollen sacks and misshapen lumps evoke anatomy turned inside out. The orifice is site of trauma, but also functions as a point of transformation. Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until February 15, 2020.
