Summer Wrap-up & Fall Is on the Way!

Our Asher Summer Trunk Show with Houston-based artists, Carolyn Dahl and Marcela McLean, was a great success! Thanks to everyone who attended this event! If you missed it, don’t worry… we still have a few of Carolyn’s leaf-printed silk scarves and wall panels, as well as some nature-inspired jewelry pieces by Marcela M. McLean for sale in Asher Gallery.

On August 17, we celebrated the opening of Glass Graphica, the glass exhibition by artists Miguel Unson and Moshe Bursuker, currently on view in the Artist Hall. During the reception, museum visitors were able to meet Unson and speak with him about the process and ideas behind his work. Unfortunately, Bursuker was not able to attend, as he currently lives in Brooklyn, NY.  We hope you’ll stop by to see the show soon, and if you have a large group, we encourage you to book a free, docent-led tour to learn more about their works.

Fall is coming soon, and we have lots of events coming up.  We hope to see you this Saturday, September 1, for HANDS-ON Houston to make wire-wrapped jewelry!  Next week,  join us for the Contemporary Handweavers of Houston Annual Sale and over at the Glassell School of Art for a panel discussion with Interstitial Spaces artists, Julia Barello and Beverly Penn, along with Jenni Sorkin and Clint Willour.  To learn more about our upcoming events, please visit https://www.crafthouston.org/events/ or sign-up to receive our E-Newsletters.

Here are some pictures from the recent Summer Trunk Show and the opening of Glass Graphica. . .  We hope to see you soon!
