“In 2017, after visiting our residency in Germany, I was fortunate to attend an extraordinary exhibition at the Wolfsburg Museum entitled ‘This Was Tomorrow, Pop Art in Great Britain’ showcasing artists, architects, film directors, music bands and photographers. Some of the artists included: The Beatles, Peter Blake, Richard Hamilton, David Hockney, Allen Jones, R. B. Kitaj, Eduardo Paolozzi, Lord Snowdon, The Rolling Stones, The Who and our own Derek Boshier.
Boshier, born 1937 in Portsmouth, UK and now living in LA, is a well-known English pop artist who works in painting, drawing, collage, photography, film, and sculpture. During the 1990’s, Boshier was an exemplary artist teaching at the University of Houston. While he has kept in touch with many of his Houston friends, he has not had a major show in Houston in recent years.
We are honored that Derek has agreed to present some of his recent works in this exhibition. A special series, directly devoted to Houston and entitled ‘Ghosts of Houston’, will be premiered. Recent paintings, drawings, and photographs will be available for viewing. The artist will be present.
After the Saturday, April 6th opening, Redbud will have a rare Boshier film screening and lecture the next night, Sunday, April 7 from 6pm to 8 pm. All events are free and open to the public. Refreshments will be available.”
