January 2018 Press Release - Joel Anderson FINAL
My last big event of 2017, before my solo show in January, will be the Winter Holiday Art Market at Winter Street Studios November 17-19.
WHAM is one of Houston’s largest juried art markets featuring exclusively local artists, and offers a unique mix of fine art and handmade crafts — including paintings, sculpture, and photography, as well as jewelry, clothing, and soaps–from emerging and established independent artists.
Detail on each piece can be found on my Gallery page.
I am excited to again be participating in the Bayou City Art Festival. Please stop by my booth #408 for a look at some of my latest work, as I prepare for my next gallery solo exhibition in January. Tickets and details are available at ArtColonyAssociation.org.
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.
Saturday, August 6, I will be among the artists lining 19th Street in The Houston Heights for the 10th Annual White Linen Night in The Heights.
I will have my newest tiles and magnets, featuring a Texas elevation map rendered by my 3D printer. I have only a few up on Amazon right now, with free shipping for Amazon Prime members.
I will be having the GRAND OPENING of my new studio at The Silos on Sawyer in conjunction with the #SummerSeries. Studio 114 is located in the interior of the western-most section of The Silos, facing Sawyer St.
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.
I was thrilled to receive the “Best in Show” award at Arts in the Square in Frisco, Texas during my Spring 2016 North American Tour. What a wonderful surprise! This was a really well run art fair – the organizers did a stupendous job, the artists’ hospitality was exceptional, the weather was great, and the crowds were amazing.
