"Surfaces" consists of two video pieces by Ha Na Lee and James Hughes. "Two Women" is a multi-media installation inspired by the invisible crisis of the suicide of the artist’s grandmother, exploring ways to understand the death of a loved one. "Liquid Voices" is a collaboration with Melia Watras, a composer and violist who wrote the music based on Virginia Woolf’s short story, The Fascination of the Pool, which mirrors the story’s stream of consciousness approach in imagery and depth.

Roberts’ installation "the present of my life looks different under trees" represents 60 years of Houston weather data and shows the story of rising temperatures and intensifying rain events, evoking the growth ring patterns of trees used to study past climates.

The installation "RESURFACE.LETTERS" consists of Houston-based Iranian-American artist Avisheh Mohsenin's family letters, which were completely damaged by Hurricane Harvey together with her art studio, reprinted in large scale, hung in layers from the ceiling reflecting the drying process of years of creation and collection as the artist grappled with concepts of memory, photography, documentation and the acceptance of change and impermanence.

Following the opening reception, these exhibits will be on display until October 5.
