July 12 – September 16
A bit of freshness to cool down the hot Houston Summer.
You are invited to come join us for the second exhibition of the newly opened Yvonamor Palix Art Gallery in Houston.
This show proposes a very diverse range of artworks by internationally established and young local artists.
France: Jean Marie Haessle, Claire Basler, Romain Froquet
Spain: Pep Guerrero
Mexico: Alfredo De Stefano, Alberto Ibanez, Patrick Petersson, Victor Rodriguez
US: Sandy Skoglund, Celeste Tammariello, Richard Tuttle, Mars Woodhill
The works chosen for this exhibit may or may not evoke the sensation of a cool breeze, but certainly a refreshing point of view whether it be the palette chosen for some of the abstract paintings by artists Jean Marie Haessle, Mars Woodhill and Romain Froquet, the jeu de mots (word play) that may seem a tad risqué in Celeste Tamariello’s photography or perhaps the daring uninhibited « Dog Girl » dressed solely by a mask by hyperrealist painter Victor Rodriguez as well as Pep Guerrero’s pictorial patchwork of tree-lined landscapes meshed with 1940’s pin up girls. Recently exhibited (Fotofest) Alfredo De Stefano exposes the viewer to a serene and tranquil open landscape from his photographic series taken in Iceland titled « Cold », Alberto Ibanez’ humoristic representation of Pepe Le Pew offers us a fresh delicacy on a platter and Patrick Petersson transports the viewer to the « Blue Lagoon » in his unique three dimensional wood carved paintings while in a more classical style, Claire Basler’s rendering of a cloudy sky evokes the calm before or after a big storm.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to view some historical work by art icons such as Sandy Skoglund with her « Dogs on the Beach » and « Cats in Paris », a true paradoxical representation of the animalistic state of humans and a rare tapestry by Richard Tuttle that displays his everlasting preoccupation with the horizon and the landscape realized in his characteristic linear manner.
The gallery, located at 1824 Spring St., #108, in Houston, is open for Spring Street Studios’ « Second Saturdays » of each month from 2-5 pm or by appointment only.
