Lawndale Art Center presents Virginia Lee Montgomery: "SKY LOOP" opening reception
Inspired by Hurricane Harvey, which devastated Houston and the artist's childhood neighborhood, "SKY LOOP" is an ambitious, multi-disciplinary project by Virginia Lee Montgomery (VLM). SKY LOOP introduces a new direction for VLM in her art, both conceptually and materially, and presents a rigorous and metaphysical analysis of Hurricane Harvey as told through a formal yet subconscious language of Houston-specific symbols. To make the film, VLM utilizes a combination of archival footage, footage shot of Hurricane Harvey as she weathered the storm with her mother, and footage shot from her studio and alongside the Buffalo Bayou.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until March 29.
