Color:Story 2019 is a Community/ Visual Art /Literary Art event - An exhibition of artwork by Marlo Saucedo and Leslie Gaworecki featuring 17 local authors: A project bridging Houston's worlds of writing and visual art. It opens with a Reading/Poetry Slam event January 12th, 2019 from 5-8PM in the Gallery 200 space at The Silos at Sawyer Yards,1502 Sawyer St., Houston, 77007. The exhibition will run through March 23rd.
The opening event on January 12th immediately follows the monthly Second Saturday Open Studios event at The Silos at Sawyer Yards.
Houston-area writers were chosen by submission last summer, with help from exhibition partner Writespace of Silver St. Studios in Sawyer Yards.
Every piece in Color:Story 2019 is collaborative work in Leslie's and Marlo's separate or combined artistic styles. Each is the visual representation of one local writer or poet's work.
Leslie Gaworecki free-forms large, deep-sided canvases into emotion, light, and color with layer upon layer of bright acrylic paint with words and shapes scraped or painted into the colors, hidden and revealed among the layers.
Marlo Saucedo fits essays into precise and intricate planned pieces with calligrams: Messages, stories, and researched lists written into form in India ink atop Chiyogami paper on a mix of acrylic and high-end latex paint.
Both artists create work designed to inspire thought and feeling, colorful stories from the wall.
