Houston Center for Contemporary Craft says
Please join HCCC for the opening of three new summer exhibitions: "A View Within" in the Main Gallery, "Charlotte Potter: Glass Armory" in the Front Gallery, and "In Residence" in the Artist Hall. The current resident artists’ studios will be open for the evening.

"A VIEW WITHIN"
MAY 27, 2016 — SEPTEMBER 3, 2016
IN THE MAIN GALLERY
http://www.crafthouston.org/exhibition/a-view-within/

This summer, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft presents "A View Within", an exhibition of textiles by Karen Rips and Paula Chung inspired by body imaging from the artists’ friends, family members, and strangers. As a collaboration that began in 2009, Rips’ and Chung’s textiles illuminate the beauty, strength, and vulnerability of the human body, introducing emotion to these otherwise static images. Rips and Chung write in their artist statement, “As artists, we find these images compelling, since they can be seen simply as shapes and lines, dark and light spaces.”

"CHARLOTTE POTTER: GLASS ARMORY"
MAY 27, 2016 — SEPTEMBER 3, 2016
IN THE FRONT GALLERY
http://www.crafthouston.org/exhibition/glassarmory/

This solo exhibition investigates the physical manifestation of identity through the intersection of glass and the body’s largest organ and protective barrier, the skin. While reflecting on the intertwined history of glass, medicine, and anatomy, artist Charlotte Potter states, “the fates of lives are cast with these small transparent pieces of glass.” Using microscope slides, along with lenses and window glass, Potter constructs a series of glass armor pieces that provide a frame into the psyche, allowing the viewer to explore how skin—with all of its blemishes, scars, and imperfections—is fundamental to one’s sense of self.

"IN RESIDENCE"
MAY 27, 2016 — AUGUST 27, 2016
IN THE ARTIST HALL
http://www.crafthouston.org/exhibition/inresidence/

"In Residence" is an exhibition displaying works produced by seven artists who began their residencies at HCCC in 2014: Clara Hoag, Natasha Hovey, Jera Rose Petal Lodge, Sarah Mizer, Alexis Myre, Collette Spears, and Rena Wood. This annual exhibition of clay, fiber, glass, metal, and mixed media celebrates HCCC’s Artist Residency Program, which has supported makers and their ingenuity in the field of craft for the past 15 years.
