Artist Talk With Kate De Para, Angel Oloshove, And Alyce Santoro says
Artists Kate de Para, Angel Oloshove, and Alyce Santoro discuss their influences, concepts, and the unique methodologies they use to produce their works featured in "Texas Design Now."

Following the artist talks, there will be a brief Q&A with the audience.

Kate de Para is a textile designer living and working in Houston. Upon earning her MFA in fibers from the Savannah College of Art and Design, de Para began dyeing, printing, cutting and sewing textiles for her clothing line Evens. Her mission as a designer is to maintain a balance between traditional and technologically forward methods of production. Evens is produced entirely in Houston and sold in stores around the country.

Angel Oloshove is an artist living and working in Houston. She is a graduate of the California College of the Arts in Oakland, CA, where she studied under artist Raymond Saunders. Her ceramic works have been exhibited at Art Palace (Houston), Gallery Hanahou (New York), Front St. Gallery (Oakland, CA), and several arts institutions across Japan. Oloshove’s ceramics can be found at design boutiques across the country including Olive (Austin), Reform School (Los Angeles), and HANDJOB Gallery/Store (New York).

Alyce Santoro was formally trained in marine biology and scientific illustration. She refers to many of her works combining sound, image, assemblage, and text as philosoprops – devices used to demonstrate a concept, spark a dialog, or invite us to consider the ways we imagine the world to be. Works made from her Sonic Fabric – an audible textile woven from cassette tape – have appeared in over 50 exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world. She has been commissioned to create custom editions of this unique material by Phish percussionist Jon Fishman and the Cidade da Cultura de Galicia.
