Visual Arts Alliance presents BOX 13 ArtSpace Studio Visit and Tour
Visual Arts Alliance (VAA) will have a studio visit and tour of BOX 13 ArtSpace, hosted by ceramic artist Jessica Kreutter.
BOX 13 ArtSpace is an artist run nonprofit space dedicated to the creation and advancement of experimental contemporary art in Houston. BOX 13 offers affordable work spaces for emerging and established artists, dedicating four interior spaces to the exhibition of artistic explorations, a window gallery for installations and an outdoor courtyard space. 25 residents, artists working in all media, participate in BOX 13.
Kreutter works in parts and pieces and is interested in creating objects and spaces that are in transformation These transformations speak about a potential to be between, to be more than what contains us. It is both a connection and dissolution, something between remembering and forgetting that opens up a space for reality to be intersected with something other. In 2013, she designed an ice sculpture in collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art (Denver) and created an unfired clay installation for the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) Project Space. Her clay installation work was featured in the January 2014 Issue of Ceramics Monthly. In 2016, she was a recipient of a Houston Arts Alliance Individual Artist Grant.
