Eight women artists are challenging traditional printmaking to explore unconventional methods in their new exhibition at the Community Artists’ Collective (The Collective) opening June 26.
Exhibiting artists of “Redefining Print: Contemporary Prints from Women of the African Diaspora” include the ROUX Collective of Houston (Rabéa Ballin, Ann “Sole Sister” Johnson, Delita Martin and Lovie Olivia), three artists from Knoxville, Tenn., (Jessica Gatlin, Abigail Lucien and Althea Murphy-Price) and Sukenya Best of Richmond, Va. The artists have created two and three-dimensional works and installations identifying race, gender and social issues affecting women of the African Diaspora in the 21st Century.
An opening reception will be held at The Collective Friday, June 26, from 6 to 9 p.m. The exhibition runs through August 28.
On Saturday, July 25, at 2 p.m. at The Collective, Johnson and Ballin will lead a conversation about “Black Printmakers of Texas.”
The exhibition will be held as a part of PrintHouston 2015, which is celebrating its fifth year in the city. PrintHouston is a city-wide exhibition and celebration of original prints, the artists who create them and the people who collect them. A calendar of all PrintHouston exhibitions, lectures and workshops is available at www.printmattershouston.org.
