Please join us Friday, March 31, 5:30 – 7:00 PM, for the opening of the ninth edition of In Residence, an annual exhibition celebrating Houston Center for Contemporary Craft’s Artist Residency Program, which has supported makers in the field of craft for over 15 years. This exhibition features work by 11 artists working in ceramic, fiber, metal, wood, and mixed media: Susan Budge, Jonathan Clark, Madison Creech, Terry Fromm, Julia Gabriel, Rene Lee Henry, Younha Jung, Wen-Dan Lin, Sarah S. Mallory, Gary Schott, and Carolyn Watkins.
The Artist Residency Program at HCCC provides a space for creative exploration, exchange, and collaboration with artists, professionals in the field, and the public. In their open studios, resident artists are able to engage with visitors as they work and explain the processes behind their craft. Though they develop individual bodies of work during their tenure, the collegiality of the program often fosters lines of collective inspiration. This iteration of In Residence features work that pushes materiality and historical forms to new limits.
