Viewers can expect to see and feel the unexpected in "Annie Evelyn: Multiple Impressions," a solo exhibition of recent work by the furniture maker at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft. Punctuated by carpeted shapes that frame her furniture, Evelyn’s installation entices the visitor to experience her craftsmanship firsthand by taking a seat. Using alternative materials to upholster her chairs, she manipulates tessellations of cement and aluminum to create comfortable, squishy seat cushions. These seemingly hard and rigid materials are so surprisingly relaxing to sit on, the experience of interacting with the work is sure to change the viewer’s first impression.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through September 2.
