Tensile Strength is the second exhibition by Sculpture Month Houston at SITE Gallery Houston at the Silos at Sawyer Yards. After the success of the inaugural exhibition in 2016-in which SITE Gallery was the flagship venue out of 43 venues throughout the city-where the works of Houston based artists were predominantly showcased, Sculpture Month Houston has expanded its artist base by inviting artists from neighboring cities and states. We will magnify the Sculpture Month Houston festival in 2018 by opening it back up to the City of Houston with all its amazing venues.


These massive silos, paired with the stamina and resilience of the artists wrestling with the sculptural medium, make for an exciting environment for our visitors. The unique, maze-like architecture of the original rice silos has been converted into individual art spaces; its soaring towers and raw industrial patina have intrigued the twenty participating artists to respond to this challenging space with works of great ambition and range. This 2017 exhibition is scaled down to focus on the silos and SITE Gallery as its only venue.


Tensile Strength and Sculpture Month Houston are celebrating the sculptural medium and the creative energies of the artists in all their diversity.
