Opening of "Indigenous Genius" and "Fleet for Abby"


This opening reception from 6-8 p.m. celebrates two exhibitions at Art League Houston. Both will be on view through August 26.

"Indigenous Genius" presents a selection of artistic and scientific artifacts from the private collection of pioneering Ohio-based collector R.W. Northcutt. The objects chronicle the obscure yet poetic life of three particular wood-working animals – the beaver, the woodpecker and the termite – and explore the deep-rooted connections between animal and human methodologies. 

"Fleet for Abby" features an exhibition of new works on paper by Houston-based artist Catherine Colangelo. "Fleet for Abby" explores the intrinsic connections between themes of friendship, youthful adventure and childhood imagination. This installation of 16 beautifully crafted gouache paintings of sail boats on Japanese Okawara paper was inspired by the story of 16-year-old Abby Sunderland’s attempt to sail solo around the world.
