At the VAA 34rd Juried Membership Exhibition


Joel Anderson, Tri-Hexa Oak

My ‘Tri-Hexa Oak’ was selected to be in the Houston Visual Arts Alliance 34th Juried Membership Exhibition by juror Zoya Tommy, owner of Zoya Tommy Gallery. The exhibition was at Spring Street Studios Oct 24 through Dec 3, 2016.

This piece was my first full scale use of 3D-printed multi-color hexagons. It was a part of my #Heatstroke3D show at Archway Gallery this past February. The dimensions are 25″ x 19″ including the frame.

It is available for $750 plus tax and shipping if applicable. See my Contact page if interested.

I am happy to announce that I now have select designs available as T Shirts for sale on Amazon. You will find 25 of my most popular designs by going on Amazon and searching for “joel anderson art” “t-shirt”. They are all base priced at $19.99 and are the higher-quality American Apparel brand.

Each T Shirt is available in men’s, women’s, and youth in various sizes. You can also pick one of five colors for each of the shirts. And the best part for me: Amazon takes care of the manufacture, shipping, and customer interaction.

Hexa-mania at Archway Gallery


Di-hexa Blue Sky, encaustic & 3D-printed ABS, 20″x20″, $700
Di-hexa Pansy 3, 4, 5, and 6, encaustic & 3D-printed ABS, each 6″x6″, $100 each or 4 for $360
Di-hexa Texas Sunset, encaustic & 3D-printed ABS, 20″x20″, $700

My exhibition wall at Archway Gallery in August, 2016 features my 3D-printed hexagons assembled on encaustic background. These were intended as a tribute to the many bees whose honeycombs provided the beeswax – a base ingredient of encaustic.

The exhibition runs until Labor Day weekend.

A Summer’s Solstice in 3D



Dates for the showing:  5/24-7/12
Opening / reception:   Saturday, 6/11 4-6 PM
Location: Kam’s Wok / Wine / Dine
4500 Montrose Blvd, Houston, TX 77006

A Summer’s Solstice in 3D is a celebration of earth’s natural rhythms amidst the randomness. 3D-printed elements are incorporated into encaustic paintings in much of the exhibition, characterizing the strict precision of some of earth’s elements (sunrise, sunset, and the timings of the solstices). Encaustic – beeswax mixed with resin – which is applied in a molten state, characterizes the randomness juxtaposed against the precision.

May at Archway Gallery


“The Spirograph Sun Also Rises”, Encaustic & 3D-printed ABS, 18″x21″, $500
“White Gaslamp #1″, Encaustic & 3D-printed ABS, 24″x12″x6”, $600
“Gaslamp: Foggy Blue”, Encaustic & 3D-printed ABS, 18″x21″, $500

My Archway Gallery wall in May showcases two of my hexagon-framed pieces and one of my white gaslamps.

The Spirograph Sun Also Rises was inspired by my childhood obsession with my Spirograph set. The lower region has glass shards taken from the door thieves broke through in our home robbery last year.

White Gaslamp #1 features a 3D-printed representation of the gaslamp in our front yard against a green flower garden. The gaslamp, including its supports, took over 20 hours to print in its five sections.

Gaslamp: Foggy Blue is a more 2D interpretation of our gaslamp, against a muddled blue sky.
