Claudia spent childhood summers at her grandparents’ Texas ranch. She remembers hot dry days that seemed to last forever, red ants, bits of glass turned purple in the sun, old ivory dominoes that felt smooth in hand, and piles of comic books to while away the long afternoons. Claudia’s brother now lives at the ranch and these photos show the ranch now. Her show is “Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch.”
In Mark’s show “Discovering the Art around Us,” Mark seeks images that already exist and repurpose them into compelling art by cropping out the rest of the world. Mark sees abstract images on sidewalks, streets, building sites, concrete floors, wood, and plaster walls. Look around and you’ll find them just about everywhere! Making handmade paper and printing these images on it adds a new quality to their surface and enhances their new purpose as art.
