Lawndale Art Center August 2015 Exhibitions opening reception


Lawndale Art Center presents four exhibitions and an installation in the Mary E. Bawden Sculpture Garden to open the 2015-2016 exhibition.

  • In the John M. O'Quinn Gallery, Harold Mendez and Ronny Quevedo's collaborative project titled Specter Field incorporates installation, sculpture, drawing and prints that question perceptual concepts of place and time.
  • In the Cecily E. Horton Gallery, Kay Sarver's exhibition Studio Junkies includes portraits of Houston area artists in their studios.
  • In the Grace R. Cavnar Gallery, Camille Warmington utilizes family photos to fill in the voids of her own memory of her family in the exhibition The Beauty is Broken.
  • In the Project Space, Melissa Borrell's installation Prismatic surrounds and engages the viewer and is transformed through interaction and shadows.

Following the opening reception, the exhibitions continue through September 26.

Through January 9, 2016, Lawndale presents Elizabeth Eicher and Hélène Schlumberger's Lawndale Regional Wilderness Zone, a playful interpretation of the structures, signage and pedagogy popularized by the National Parks Service. The installation transforms the Mary E. Bawden Sculpture Garden into a natural and cultural reserve.
