Two great figurative exhibitions are here in Houston now, one at the CAMH and one at MFAH conveniently located just across the street from each other. Alice Neel: Painted Truths at the MFAH and Barkley L. Hendricks: Birth of the Cool at the CAM, painters of the figure when figure painting wasn't so cool. TexasWAX/Houston is holding our March meeting at the MFAH in the Cafe Express downstairs and will proceed to the galleries to view the Alice Neel exhibition then across the street to the CAMH to see the Barkley Hendricks exhibit. For more information about each artist, click the images and the museum highlighted text in the paragraph above.
Clicking the painting by Hendricks will take you to the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University. Here you will see a grid of paintings by this artist with dialog embedded in each icon. The dialog is activated when you click a painting.
When you click the CAMH site and scroll down to the bottom of the page, you will find an interesting video and interview with the artist.
I hope to see you Sunday.
