Jung Center of Houston presents "Ancestors: New Work by Damon Thomas & Ellen Ray" opening reception
The art exhibition, "Ancestors: New Work by Damon Thomas and Ellen Ray," will feature an artist talk, moderated by Anna Tahinci, Ph.D., chair of art history at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s Glassell of School of Art.
Damon Thomas works in clay, found objects and mixed media to create figurative art that explores the emotional and psychological range of the human condition. In this new body of work, Thomas’ sculptures explore journey and transformation through time and space.
Ellen Ray’s new contemplative body of work explores ancestral memory. Including the ways we connect to each other, the earth and the spiritual realm. Houses, trees, roots, and organic and cellular structures appear in different environments, sometimes whole, often fragmented or partially obscured.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until September 29.
