Opening Reception

Saturday, June 1, 2019
6pm to 9pm

Redbud Gallery is proud to present “MishMash”, a selection of works of several artists working in various media, showcasing both emerging and well-established artists.

Some of the works have not been shown in Houston to my knowledge.  They include a large diptych by University of Houston educated Texas artist Julian Schnabel, a long worked on piece by the legendary Menil collected Ben Culwell, and a rare female created painting of Leda and the swan by Maryland Institute College of Art grad Amita Bhatt.  Sculpture is represented by a glistening hanging hare by Emily Cheney of Houston Baptist University (HBU).

Corinne Jones from East Texas displays a shadow Mockingbird and Barbara Biel presents one of her recent mysterious landscapes.  Recent HBU MFA grads: Crystal Murley exhibits powerful abstracts accented with numerous surface details and Honduran Celea Guevara debuts powerful figurative as well as cultural-based drawings and linocuts comparable to the prints of the great Elizabeth Catlett.  A wonderful large painting of a priest by Chicago imagist Ray Donley adorns the east walls.  Rounding out the exhibit are: a seldom seen early James Surls pencil erotic surrealistic drawing, a powerful intriguing landscape canvas by HBU Professor, Carlos Canul, and an early, rarely seen large House Nude by Fresh Paint artist Ron Hoover.

Please come and join us to see this intriguing exhibit at Redbud West Gallery.  Unfortunately, some of the artists will not be present for obvious reasons.
