Deborah Colton Gallery presents "Keeping Vigil: Select Works from the Estate of Virgil Grotfeldt." At the opening reception, artists Wei Hongand Terrell James will discuss Virgil and his works, followed by a sound meditation experience with Alex Mora of Ethereal Healing Houston.

The exhibition was inspired by the inclusion of Grotfeldt works in The Curatorial Imagination of Walter Hopps at the Menil Collection, an exhibition that opens on March 25, as well as the upcoming book, Artists We’ve Known, Selected Works from the Walter Hopps and Caroline Huber Collection, published by Yale University Press.

In "Keeping Vigil," the viewer is invited to join Grotfeldt as he explores the mysterious forces we see and sense all around us. To enter the liminal space between the external world around us and the interior landscape of the mind; to encounter potent imagery of both the familiar and ethereal.

Here we find the shadowy figures of man, of nature and of spirit blending, fading, and transforming into one another as if in a dream. As a society in economic, environmental, and cultural flux, many are searching for meaning in the more esoteric realms of healing energy, spiritual practices, shamanism or the exploration of consciousness itself.

The work of Virgil Grotfeldt offers a road map for this universal journey; and reminds us that someone walks alongside us keeping vigil along the way.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until April 22.
