Fresh Arts presents Transitional Artifacts, a site-specific collaborative installation by The Center for Imaginative Cartography and Research, also known as Houston based artists Emily Halbardier and Erik Sultzer. While the exhibition is on view, Sultzer and Halbardier will regularly bring collected items into the gallery, primarily construction waste and other readily available detritus found around the Montrose and First Ward neighborhoods, from which to create drawings, photographs, temporary sculptures and ephemeral compositions.
Influenced by the ever-changing Houston landscape, the nature and composition of Transitional Artifacts will change and evolve over time as the artists continually augment and revise their constructed environment. The public is invited to visit the gallery multiple times throughout the evolution of the installation, partly to witness the work in various states of change and partly to chat and share in the artists' process.
The exhibition will be on display beginning July 11, and the public is invited to a free closing reception with the artists on Aug. 22, 6-8 p.m.
