I am thrilled to have been accepted as a member artist at Archway Gallery. It is a 30-member artist co-op — Houston’s oldest artist-owned and operated gallery.
My initial installation I have titled “Playing all my cards”.
I spent untold hours growing up in the 60s and 70s playing cards. Solitaire, hearts, spades, pinochle, old maid, gin rummy, mille bornes, etc, etc. One big assignment for a computer science class at ISU was to program a game of solitaire (in FORTRAN if I remember). Later I got into playing bridge, competitively for a short time.
Taking this influence from my past, mixing in some of my spinning technique, and adding a nod to the game strategy that is a certain aspect of today’s art business, I came up with the title “Playing all my cards”.
This will be my primary exhibit through November, so stop by Archway Gallery for a closer look. They are at 2305 Dunlavy St, 77006, which is a little north of Westheimer, in the Montrose, just west of the Westheimer curve.
